The utility of source code, as of other knowledge artifacts, is predicated on the existence of individuals skilled enough to derive value by using or improving it. Developers leaving a software project deprive the project of the knowledge of the decisions they have made. Previous research shows that the survivors and newcomers maintaining abandoned code(More)
The quality of software projects is affected by developer turnover. Mockus studied organizational volatility in the context a large switching software project at Avaya. We replicate his model of the impact of organizational volatility on post-release defects. At the time of Mockus's study, Avaya was experimenting with outsourcing and layoffs were prevalent.(More)
Previously, we reported on the spatial resolution and quantitative accuracy of temperature-modulated fluorescence tomography (TM-FT) using simulation studies. TM-FT is a novel fully integrated multimodality imaging technique that combines fluorescence diffuse optical tomography (FT) with focused ultrasound. Utilizing unique thermo-reversible fluorescent(More)
Hyperpolarization methods offer a unique means of improving low signal strength obtained in low-field NMR. Here, simultaneous measurements of NMR at a field of 0.7mT and laser optical absorption from samples hyperpolarized by dissolution dynamic nuclear polarization (D-DNP) are reported. The NMR measurement field closely corresponds to a typical field(More)
Fluorescence excitation-emission matrix (EEM) and absorption spectroscopy were applied to study the optical properties of 29 CDOM samples collected from different ballast tanks of nine international route vessels anchored in Xiamen Port between October 2007 and April 2008. The purpose was to examine the feasibility of these spectral properties as a tracer(More)
To upgrade some conventional aeration processes, a lab-scale system for promoting nitrogen and phosphorus removals was set up and studied through a series of experiments, in which water hyacinth was planted on the surface of the mixed liquor in aeration tanks. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of (1) aeration, (2) organic load(More)
