It has been shown in previous studies that the autonomic nervous system can be affected by acupuncture. Within this study, teleacupuncture between China and Austria is used for quantifying the effects of heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) in 33 Chinese patients (27 females, 6 males; mean age ± SD 49.5 ± 13.1 years; range 22-72 years) suffering… (More)
In this paper we prove that the surface of the cuboctahedron can be trian-gulated into 8 non-obtuse triangles and 12 acute triangles. Furthermore, we show that both bounds are the best possible.
This paper introduces a new obfuscation called obfuscation of en-crypted blind signature. Informally, Alice is Signer and Bob is User. Bob needs Alice to sign a message, but he does not want Alice to know what the message is. Furthermore, Bob doesn't want anyone to know the interactive process. So we present a secure obfuscator for encrypted blind signature… (More)
BACKGROUND Abnormal neuronal differentiation plays an important role in central nervous system (CNS) development abnormalities such as Down syndrome (DS), a disorder that results directly from overexpression of genes in trisomic cells. Receptor-interacting protein 140 (RIP140) is significantly upregulated in DS brains, suggesting its involvement in DS CNS… (More)
In biosorption research, a fairly broad range of mathematical models are used to correlate discrete data points obtained from batch equilibrium, batch kinetic or fixed bed breakthrough experiments. Most of these models are inherently nonlinear in their parameters. Some of the models have enjoyed widespread use, largely because they can be linearized to… (More)
