Subjectivity is no barrier
(Cambridge University Press, 1999-12)
Palmer's “subjectivity barrier” seems to be erected on a popular but highly suspect conception of visual experience, and his “color room” argument is invalid.
Chromosome arrangement within a bacterium
Background: The contour length of the circular chromosome of bacteria is greater than a millimeter but must be accommodated within a cell that is only a few micrometers in length. Bacteria do not have nucleosomes and little ...
Modeling of Deformation Textures Evolution in Semi-Crystalline Polymers
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1991)
A composite model for plastic deformations of semi-crystalline polymersis used to simulate deformation textures evolution in these two-phase materials.Three types of textures are simulated: crystallographic texture,morphological ...
Design and evaluation of a cellular rectifier system with distributed control
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1999-06)
This paper presents the design and experimental evaluation of a six-cell 6 kW cellular (parallel) rectifier system which operates at nearly unity power factor. The cellular rectifier system implements both distributed load ...
Internal Damper Characteristics of Rotor System with Submerged ER Fluid Journal Bearing
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1997)
Electro-Rheological (ER) fluid behavior is similar to Bingham fluid’s. Only when the shear stress magnitude of ER fluid exceeds the yield stress, Newtonian flow results. Continuous shear strain rate equation about shear ...
A Unique Method of Defense of Bremus (Bombus) Fervidus Fabricius
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1922)
It is a well-known fact that bumblebees, especially the more ferocious species, are quick to attack with sting and mandibles if any vertebrate ventures too close to their nests. Similar punishment is meted out by many ...
Analysis and Design of Regular Structures for Robust Dynamic Fault Testability
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1993)
Recent methods of synthesizing logic that is fully and robustly testable for dynamic faults, namely path delay, transistor stuck-open and gate delay faults, rely almost exclusively on flattening given logic expressions ...
Switching-ripple-based current sharing for paralleled power converters
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1999-10)
This paper presents the implementation and experimental evaluation of a new current-sharing technique for paralleled power converters. This technique uses information naturally encoded in the switching ripple to achieve ...
Sequence of the RAG1 and RAG2 Intergenic Region in Zebrafish (Danio rerio)
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 1998)
The recombination activating genes, rag1 and rag2 are essential for the rearrangement of antigen receptor V, D, and J gene segments (Oettinger et al., 1990, Mombaerts et al., 1992; Sehatz and Oettinger, 1992; Shinkai et ...
Distributed interleaving of paralleled power converters
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1997-08)
This paper introduces a distributed approach to interleaving paralleled power converter cells. Unlike conventional methods, the distributed approach requires no centralized control, automatically accommodates varying numbers ...
