Developing sea urchin eggs (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus),
reared at 15° C, were subjected to single 15-minute treatments with
disodium versenate in calcium-free sea water, applied at 10-minute
intervals, from 4 minutes after insemination to the second cleavage.
These versene pulses produced specific degrees of retardation in
the mitotic process and delayed...
In this paper we investigate the Lyapunov mapping
P --> AP + PA *
where A is a positive stable matrix and P is a hermitian
matrix. In particular, for special positive stable A we
characterize the image of the cone of positive definite matrices
under this mapping. In Section...
This paper presents a theoretical study of real-time bandwidth
compression systems using the Hilbert transform and associated analytic
signal concept. An analytic signal is defined as
u(t) = s(t) + [superscript ¯]js(t) , where [superscript ¯]s(t) is the Hilbert transform of the signal
s(t). A complete discussion of the properties...
The base Al-Zn superplastic alloy was investigated at 250°C to
determine the effect of small amounts of magnesium on mechanical
properties. Six alloys of nominal composition 0.00, 0.10, 0.25,
0.50, 0.75, and 1.00 weight percent magnesium, constant 78 weight
percent zinc, and variable 21 to 22 weight percent aluminum were...
