The status of graphical presentation in interior/architectural design education
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2004-05)
This article argues that interior/architectural design education favours a dominance of final presentation over the design process in the studio environment, particularly in the evaluation of a project. It suggests that ...
Dependence of the substrate structure and the film growth at the junction of YBCO SEJ rf-SQUIDs on the IBE process and effects on the SQUID's characteristics
Step edge junction (SEJ) rf-SQUIDs were made of 200 nm thick YBCO films on LaAlO3(100) substrates using pulsed laser deposition technique. The steps on the substrates were developed using a combination of stationary and ...
The new product development improvement motives and practices of Miles and Snow’s prospectors, analysers and defenders
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2006)
Marketing, strategic management and contingency theory suggest that different strategies require different practices. The new product development (NPD) literature, however, hardly addresses the product development practices ...
UV-induced electrical and optical changes in PVC blends
2-Chloro-polyaniline (2-Cl-PANI) in its non-conducting (emeraldine base, EB) form, prepared by a chemical route, was dissolved together with poly-(vinylchloride) (PVC) in THF for casting into thin (10-50 μm) films. Upon ...
Iterative-improvement-based declustering heuristics for multi-disk databases
Data declustering is an important issue for reducing query response times in multi-disk database systems. In this paper, we propose a declustering method that utilizes the available information on query distribution, data ...
Algebraic reconstraction for 3D magnetic resonance-electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) using one component of magnetic flux density
(Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, 2004)
Magnetic resonance-electrical impedance tomography (MREIT) algorithms fall into two categories: those utilizing internal current density and those utilizing only one component of measured magnetic flux density. The latter ...
Analysis of electrical characteristics and magnetic field dependences of YBCO step edge and bicrystal grain boundary junctions for rf-SQUID applications
(Institute of Physics, 2004)
The dc characteristics and magnetic field dependences of Y-Ba-Cu-O bicrystal grain boundary junctions (BGBJs) and step edge junctions (SEJs) were investigated for fabrication of rf-SQUIDs. Test junctions with up to 8 μm ...
Dating of Black sea sediments from Romanian coast using natural 210Pb and fallout 137CS
(Akademiai Kiado Rt., 2004)
The sediment samples collected near the shore from Romania were used for the determination of levels of natural 210Pb, 226Ra and fallout 137Cs radionuclides. The sediment samples were dried and ground to a fine powder. ...
Sequential product of quantum effects
(American Mathematical Society, 2004)
Unsharp quantum measurements can be modelled by means of the class ℰ(ℋ) of positive contractions on a Hilbert space ℋ, in brief, quantum effects. For A, B ∈ ℰ(ℋ) the operation of sequential product AοB = A1/2 BA1/2 was ...
Which singular K3 surfaces cover an Enriques surface
(American Mathematical Society, 2005)
We determine the necessary and sufficient conditions on the entries of the intersection matrix of the transcendental lattice of a singular K3 surface for the surface to doubly cover an Enriques surface.
