ENDOCOM: Abdominal aortic aneurysm test bench for in vitro simulation
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, whose rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment procedures of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered ...
Seismic Rayleigh waves on an exponentially graded, orthotropic half-space
(The Royal Society, 2007)
Efforts at modelling the propagation of seismic waves in half-spaces with continuously varying properties have mostly been focused on shear-horizontal waves. Here, a sagittally polarized (Rayleigh type) wave travels along ...
An algorithm for the unit group of the Burnside ring of a finite group
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-01)
In this note we present an algorithm for the construction of the unit group of the Burnside ring Ω(G) of a finite group G from a list of representatives of the conjugacy classes of subgroups of G.
Liquid-crystal-mediated force between a cylindrical nanoparticle and substrate
(American Physical Society, 2007-10-25)
Using classical density functional theory, the structure of a molecular fluid around a cylindrical nanoparticle near a solid substrate is studied. The solvent-mediated force between the nanoparticle and the substrate is ...
Fluorescence study of bovine serum albumin and Ti and Sn Oxide nanoparticles interactions.
(The Optical Society, 2007)
Nanochemistry offers stimulating opportunities for a wide variety of applications in the biosciences. Understanding of the interaction of nanoparticles with biomolecules such as proteins is very important as it can help ...
Surface stability of nonlinear magnetoelastic solids
The present paper proposes to identify surface stability when a magnetoelastic half-space is subjected to a pure homogeneous pre-deformation and to a magnetic field normal to its (plane) boundary. Clearly, the aim is to ...
Diffusionrank: a possible penicillin for web spamming
While the PageRank algorithm has proven to be very effective for ranking Web pages, the rank scores of Web pages can be manipulated. To handle the manipulation problem and to cast a new insight on the Web structure, we ...
Very High Energy Observations of Gamma-Ray Burst Locations with the Whipple Telescope
Gamma-ray burst (GRB) observations at very high energies (VHE, E > 100 GeV) can impose tight constraints on some GRB emission models. Many GRB afterglow models predict a VHE component similar to that seen in blazars and ...
Expansions of CAG·CTG repeats in immortalized human astrocytes.
(Oxford University Press, 2007)
Expansions of trinucleotide repeats (TNRs) are the genetic cause for a number of neurodegenerative disorders. In some of these diseases, ongoing somatic expansions in the brain are thought to contribute to disease progression. ...
Deep optical observations of the interaction of the SS 433 microquasar jet with the W 50 radio continuum shell
Four mosaics of deep, continuum-subtracted, CCD images have been obtained over the extensive galactic radio continuum shell, W 50, which surrounds the remarkable stellar system SS 433. Two of these mosaics in the Halpha+[N ...
