Friction severely limits performance in precise positioning systems. This thesis investigates one possible approach to counter friction related performance losses, friction cancellation. In this method a friction observer is used to estimate...
Chromium -- Toxicity testing. ; Glutathione. ; Vitamin C -- Physiological effect. ; Carcinogenesis. ; DNA damage.
Chromium(VI) is a human carcinogen and causes DNA damage following reduction by intracellular reductants. In order to explore the effects of intracellular reductants on the carcinogenicity of Cr(VI), the roles of glutathione and ascorbate in...

The kinetic theory based gas-dynamical computational method, due to (Prendergast and Xu, 1993: Xu and Prendergast, 1994) is generalized to two-phase flow computations. The Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook kinetic model is generalized to the case of two...
We consider a problem of information overload: the conflict between vast amounts of data available in electronic form and inadequate tools for finding relevant information. To alleviate this problem we look at the information organization:...
Coding theory. Characters of groups. Error-correcting codes (Information theory). Polynomials.
We introduce vector-valued character theory, a higher dimensional generalization of character theory. We then use vector-valued characters to extend the MacWilliams equivalence theorem for linear codes to a class of additive codes, called...
Spatial localization of sound depends on interaural time delay (ITD), level difference, and on the interaction of the source with the head, torso, and pinna. Head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) model the dynamics that are used by listeners to...
