AIMS We review recent trends in HIV associated with injecting drug use (IDU) in the Newly Independent States (NIS) in eastern Europe, including Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan in central Asia. We aim to draw attention to the social and economic "risk environments" in which rapid HIV spread among IDUs has occurred. METHODS Findings draw(More)
Straightforward evaluation of the correlation functions in 2D minimal gravity requires integration over the moduli space. For degenerate fields the higher equations of motion of the Liouville field theory allow to turn the integrand to a derivative and to reduce it to the boundary terms and the so-called curvature contribution. The last is directly related(More)

1 Definition and the basic properties The Ising model (IM) was invented by Lenz. His student Ising has found the partition function of the 1d model and tried to solve 2d model but failed. The exact solution of 2d model was found by Onsager in 1942-1944. It is one of the fundamental results in statistical physics. The IM consist of spins σ x = ±1 ascribed(More)
