PROBLEM OF AERODYNAMIC INTERACTION OF TRAFFIC STREAMS

This study presents a model of continuous oncoming traffic flows of vehicles along highways. The flow of atmospheric air and impurity particles is modeled numerically based on unsteady Reynolds-Averaged Navier–Stokes equations using the MTFS® authoring software. Detailing of the flow patterns allows arbitrary length regions of periodicity, taking into account a crosswind. The examples provided demonstrate some of the results of the aerodynamic interaction of two oncoming columns of

Nigrostriatal interaction in the aging brain: new therapeutic target for Parkinson’s disease

striatum. Newly discovered striatal neurogenesis – normally a lifelong process – determines the efficiency of nigrostriatal interaction. Deficient neurogenesis within the striatum followed by a decline in the GABAergic/dopaminergic interaction results in progressive disconnection of the dopaminergic input, which initiates a ‘vicious circle’ cascade of neuronal damage. Effects of both deficient striatal neurogenesis and age-related neurodegeneration within the striatum accumulate, resulting in a

Handling temporal constraints in interaction protocols for intelligent multi-agent systems

There is a dire need of standardized interaction protocols that can be used to handle timing aspects in real-time multi-agent systems (RTMAS) negotiation. In real-time systems, time constraint is the major responsibility for all of its tasks and goals. Multi-agent systems (MAS) with collaborative agents must be able to interact and communicate with each other. Agents modeling is appropriate for message passing between interacting agents to achieve some goals. For the cooperation and

Extended residual coherence with a financial application

Residual coherence is a graphical tool for selecting potential second-order interaction terms as functions of a single time series and its lags. This paper extends the notion of residual coherence to account for interaction terms of multiple time series. Moreover, an alternative criterion, integrated spectrum, is proposed to facilitate this graphical selection. A financial market application shows that new insights can be gained regarding implied market volatility.

While multilevel modelling separates the effects resulting from personal characteristics from those resulting from community features, the need to account for spatial variation and geographic membership proves that space and place matter, too.

In this paper, we consider the consensus problem of first-order continuous-time multi-agent systems with fixed topology and time-varying topology in the presence of measurement noises. It is assumed that each agent can only obtain the information from its neighbors, and the information is corrupted by white noises. For the case of fixed topology, it is shown that consensus can be reached asymptotically in mean square provided the interaction topology has a spanning tree. For the case of time

STUDY ON LIGHT RESPONSE OF PACHIRA AQUATICA’S LEAF VIA SURFACE PLASMON RESONANCE TECHNIQUE

Light response of a pachira aquatica’s leaf at room temperature was investigated with a strong p-wave electromagnetic field by utilizing a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) based sensor technique of angular interrogation method for biological and chemical sensing. The essential principle of SPR biosensing is based on measurement of the change regarding leaf’s microstructure against the sensor’s metallic surface owing to the interaction with the strong p-wave electromagnetic field. The test result

This paper presents progress on treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using Augmented Reality based games. The aim of these games is to enhance social interaction and hand-eye coordination in children with ASD thus easing them into becoming more comfortable around unfamiliar people. Colour detection and tracking and motion tracking concepts in augmented reality have been used to develop games for young children with ASD. The idea is that these games will encourage concentration

How to recognize and resolve reagentdependent reactivity: a review

Reagent-dependent reactivity can be described as agglutination of red blood cells (RBCs) in serologic testing that is not related to the interaction of RBC antigens and antibodies that the test system is intended to detect. In other words, reagent-dependent reactivity results in false-positive agglutination reactions in serologic testing. These false-positive reactions can cause confusion in antigen typing and RBC antibody detection and identification procedures, and may result in delays in
