iii Abstract In early 2010, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) science collaboration initiated a study to investigate the physics potential of the experiment with a broad set of different beam, near-and far-detector configurations. Nine initial topics were identified as scientific areas that motivate construction of a long-baseline neutrino(More)
We present a comprehensive treatment of the precise determinations of the parameters Re(␧Ј/␧), ␶ S , ⌬m, ␾ ϩϪ , and ⌬␾ in the neutral kaon system with the Fermilab E731 detector. Together, these determinations allow accurate studies of both CP and CPT symmetry. Details of the detector and its performance and the data analysis are given. The extensive Monte(More)
Chlozolinate (Serinal) is a dicarboximide fungicide used in southern European countries principally on grapes. Maximum residue levels have not yet been set by FAO/WHO and are under evaluation in the EU. Field trials have been carried out in Greece on two varieties of table grapes (Cardinal and Victoria) during two consecutive years to assess residues(More)
AOT reverse micelles are used to cosolubilize hydrophilic and hydrophobic reactants of lipase catalysed esterification. Depending on the nature of the alcohol, a drastic change of the initial rate of the esterification is observed. A structural study of the micellar system with and without reactant is undertaken to explain the change in the activity with(More)
In the shipping industry sector, structural failure is a major cause of the loss of ships, vessels and tankers resulting in loss of life and pollution of the world's oceans, seas and coastal waters of Europe. Indeed, it has been reported in 2006, that each year over 400 ocean going ships sink, many as a result of weakened structures due to corrosion and(More)
