A compartmental model of the immune system is simulated.
Chapter I discusses the importance of such a
model, reviews past immune system models, and summaries
the immunological theory the model is based upon. In
Chapter II, the compartmental representation of the immune
system is developed from immunological and physiological
This paper compares three classes of algorithms for finding
Hamiltonian circuits in graphs. Two of the classes are exhaustive
search procedures and this study finds them to have an exponential
dependence on the size of the graph. The third class of algorithms,
based on Warnsdorff's rule, is found to be...

were isolated, identified, and screened for their abilities to produce
gari flavor. Gari production, under the controlled conditions was
attempted utilizing these isolates and the dairy starter cultures.
