Identification of aspects of functioning, disability and health relevant to patients experiencing vertigo: a qualitative study using the international classification of functioning, disability and health
Martin Mueller, Edith Schuster, Ralf Strobl, Eva Grill
Health and Quality of Life Outcomes , 2012, DOI: 10.1186/1477-7525-10-75
Abstract: We conducted a series of qualitative semi-structured face-to-face interviews using a descriptive approach. Data was analyzed using the meaning condensation procedure and then linked to categories of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF).From May to July 2010 12 interviews were carried out until saturation was reached. Four hundred and seventy-one single concepts were extracted which were linked to 142 different ICF categories. 40 of those belonged to the component body functions, 62 to the component activity and participation, and 40 to the component environmental factors. Besides the most prominent aspect “dizziness” most participants reported problems within “Emotional functions (b152), problems related to mobility and carrying out the daily routine. Almost all participants reported “Immediate family (e310)” as a relevant modifying environmental factor.From the patients’ perspective, vertigo has impact on multifaceted aspects of functioning and disability, mainly body functions and activities and participation. Modifying contextual factors have to be taken into account to cover the complex interaction between the health condition of vertigo on the individuals’ daily life. The results of this study will contribute to developing standards for the measurement of functioning, disability and health relevant for patients suffering from vertigo.
Development Process of Intermodal Transport Solutions: The Case of Dedicated Solutions Based on Large Shippers’ Volumes  [PDF]
Edith Sorkina
Journal of Transportation Technologies (JTTs) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jtts.2012.24035
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to create a process view of the development of intermodal transport solution from the basic idea to implementation. Special case of dedicated solutions based on large shippers’ volumes is chosen, where the shippers engage in the development process of the new solutions. Research is conducted using a qualitative approach: multiple case studies. Empirical data has been obtained through in-depth semi-structured interviews with relevant respondents involved in the development projects. Shippers’ perspective on the development process is studied. Development process can be described through a generic four-stage process: Initiation, Planning, Implementation, and Further Development. Different actors and different resources are required at the different stages. The complex process of establishing new intermodal solutions has lacked attention in the intermodal research. Understanding and improving the development process of new intermodal solutions is considered to have an important effect on the viability of intermodal transport and can help to understand the barriers that prevent companies from switching to intermodal. Development process of new dedicated intermodal solutions is a gradual process of building up the transport solution in a continuous interaction between shippers and transport service providers. Research has focused on the shipper perspective on inter-modal transport, showing that switching to an intermodal transport is not simply a mode choice issue, but involves a transition process that takes time, demands resources, cooperation/coordination between multiple parties, may require changes in the supply chain beyond the transport link, involves multiple actors, and involves an industry that is itself in a process of change.
The Formula of Grangeat for Tensor Fields of Arbitrary Order in Dimensions
T. Schuster
International Journal of Biomedical Imaging , 2007, DOI: 10.1155/2007/12839
Abstract: The cone beam transform of a tensor field of order m in n≥2 dimensions is considered. We prove that the image of a tensor field under this transform is related to a derivative of the n-dimensional Radon transform applied to a projection of the tensor field. Actually the relation we show reduces for m=0 and n=3 to the well-known formula of Grangeat. In that sense, the paper contains a generalization of Grangeat's formula to arbitrary tensor fields in any dimension. We further briefly explain the importance of that formula for the problem of tensor field tomography. Unfortunately, for m>0, an inversion method cannot be derived immediately. Thus, we point out the possibility to calculate reconstruction kernels for the cone beam transform using Grangeat's formula.

Eduardo Llanos Melussa: Miniantología o eco desusado de la negación como voz interior
Schuster,Hans;
Literatura y lingüística , 2004, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-58112004001500010
Abstract: the article talks about the form and social topics of the last poetic production of the poet llanos melusa, his contradictions and the resource of the contradiction. the analysis is centered in the text entitled miniantología, which registers the conflicts of a period in latin america with its beats of blood and felony (argentina, chile, paraguay, etc). the author criticizes the dictatorial corruption and the assassins that the state in impunity maintains enjoying their retirement
Marker-assisted selection for quantitative traits
Schuster, Ivan;
Crop Breeding and Applied Biotechnology , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-70332011000500008
Abstract: although thousands of scientific articles have been published on the subject of marker-assisted selection (mas) and quantitative trait loci (qtl), the application of mas for qtl in plant breeding has been restricted. among the main causes for this limited use are the low accuracy of qtl mapping and the high costs of genotyping thousands of plants with tens or hundreds of molecular markers in routine breeding programs. recently, new large-scale genotyping technologies have resulted in a cost reduction. nevertheless, the mas for qtl has so far been limited to selection programs using several generations per year, where phenotypic selection cannot be performed in all generations, mainly in recurrent selection programs. methods of mas for qtl in breeding programs using self-pollination have been developed.

Fixed-point-free embeddings of graphs in their complements
Seymour Schuster
International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 1978, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171278000356
Abstract: The following is proved: If G is a labeled (p,p ¢ ’2) graph where p ¢ ‰ ¥2, then there exists an isomorphic embedding of G in its complement G ˉ such that has no fixed vertices. The extension to (p,p ¢ ’1) graphs is also considered.

Abstract: Dieser überblick über die aktuelle Forschungslandschaft der geschlechtsbezogenen Raumforschung zeichnet sich durch eine gro e Vielfalt an Themen, Perspektiven sowie theoretischen und methodischen Zug ngen aus. Die Autor/-innen diskutieren die – historisch im Wandel begriffene – Konzeptualisierung von Geschlecht und beziehen diese auf das jeweilige geographische Forschungsgebiet; auch konzeptionelle überlegungen zum Raumbegriff finden sich in mehreren Beitr gen. Die meisten untersuchen die Ko-Konstitution von Raum und Geschlecht, wobei sie entweder bereits eine intersektionale Perspektive einnehmen oder eine solche für zukünftige Arbeiten befürworten. Dies wird damit begründet, dass der Intersektionalit tsansatz geeignet sei, der Komplexit t sozialer Ungleichheiten gerecht zu werden und differente soziale Positionen in der Forschungspraxis wie auch im gesellschaftlichen Miteinander aufzuwerten. This overview of the current research environment of gender related spatial research is characterized by a large variety of topics, perspectives, as well as theoretical and methodological approaches. The authors discuss the conceptualization of gender (which has been in a state of flux over time) while relating it to the respective geographical research area. Conceptual considerations about the definition of space can also be found in several articles. Most authors examine the co-construction of space and gender while either taking an intersectional perspective or advocating one for future research. This is justified by the suitability of the intersectional approach, which is said to be able to meet the complexities of social injustice while also being able to revaluate differing social positions in research practices as well as in societal life.
