The matrix Kadomtsev--Petviashvili equation as a source of integrable nonlinear equations
A. Maccari
Physics , 2002, DOI: 10.2991/jnmp.2002.9.1.2
Abstract: A new integrable class of Davey--Stewartson type systems of nonlinear partial differential equations (NPDEs) in 2+1 dimensions is derived from the matrix Kadomtsev--Petviashvili equation by means of an asymptotically exact nonlinear reduction method based on Fourier expansion and spatio-temporal rescaling. The integrability by the inverse scattering method is explicitly demonstrated, by applying the reduction technique also to the Lax pair of the starting matrix equation and thereby obtaining the Lax pair for the new class of systems of equations. The characteristics of the reduction method suggest that the new systems are likely to be of applicative relevance. A reduction to a system of two interacting complex fields is briefly described.

Lindbeck’s Scheme-Content Distinction: A Critique of the Dualism Between Orders of Language
Adonis Vidu
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2004,
Abstract: There are several tensions present in George Lindbeck’s postliberal theology. One of these is between realist intuitions and a non-epistemic account of truth, on the one hand, and a social-constructivist non-realism with regard to theological statements. Theology is relegated to the status of second-order discourse, while first order language comprises the practices, rituals, vocabulary of a religion. I am challenging this intermediary status of religion with the help of Donald Davidson’s critique of the dualism between scheme and content. Since there isn’t much to be made of the notion of epistemic intermediaries (either as ‘content’ or as ‘scheme’) it does not make sense to continue to speak either in terms of realism or of non-realism. This clears the way for treating theology as cognitive.

Therapeutic Implications of Coronary Artery Calcium Using Cardiac Computed Tomography
Adonis Saremi,Rohit Arora
Clinical Medicine : Cardiology , 2007,
Abstract: The objective of this document is to review the clinical applicability of coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring in both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients at risk for cardiovascular disease. We begin by describing the pathological basis of atherosclerosis, the characteristic stages of atherosclerotic plaque development, and the mechanism and role of arterial calcification in advanced atherosclerotic lesions. We also explain the utility of CAC scoring in cardiovascular risk assessment, discuss the most current clinical methods for measuring CAC, and examine major clinical studies reporting CAC scores in both asymptomatic and symptomatic heart patients. Lastly, the current recommendations for CAC scoring as stated by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) are outlined, and a number of considerations for future research are provided. Atherosclerosis begins when certain factors cause chronic endothelial injury, which eventually leads to the build up of fi brofatty plaques in the intima of arterial blood vessels. In time, blood vessel walls can weaken, thrombi can form and plaques can send emboli to distal sites. There are six characteristic stages of plaque development. Mature plaques may be calcified in an active process comparable to bone remodeling, where calcium phosphate crystals coalesce among lipid particles inside arterial walls. Calcification is only present in atherosclerotic arteries, and the site and levels of calcium are non-linearly and positively associated with luminal narrowing of coronary vessels. Calcification is also postulated to stabilize vulnerable plaques in atherosclerotic vessels. Recent studies have shown that CAC scoring can improve the management of both asymptomatic and symptomatic heart patients. Electron beam computed tomography (EBCT) and Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) are two fast cardiac CT methods used to measure CAC. No matter what technique one uses, CAC is scored with either the Agatston or the “volume” score system. The ACC/AHA currently finds it is reasonable for asymptomatic patients with intermediate Framingham risk scores (FRS) to undergo CAC assessment because these patients can be re-stratified into the high risk category if their CAC scores are 400. Conversely, CAC measurement in asymptomatic patients with low or high FRS is not warranted. There is also no evidence to suggest that high risk asymptomatic patients with no detectable coronary calcium should not be treated with secondary prevention medical therapy. For symptomatic patients, the ACC/AHA recommends CAC as
