Gender in the American Anthology Apparatus: A Linguistic Analysis  [PDF]
Laura Aull
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/als.2014.21008
Abstract:

Most American anthology and canon revision has focused on author and text selections but little on the anthology editorial apparatus. The following study responds to this gap by analyzing gender representation across prefaces and overviews of the Norton and Heath American anthologies (1979-2010). Through a combined rhetorical and corpus linguistic analysis, the study reveals disparate gender representation in these materials: women are increasingly mentioned over time, but men continue to emerge as individuals of importance while women are discussed primarily as a group. This examination suggests that the revisionist, feminist scrutiny of Norton and Heath inventory has not been brought to bear on the anthologies’ apparatus—and that discursive patterns therein remain largely invisible despite that they contradict efforts to revise gender bias in anthologies. In so doing, the study offers an exploratory analysis of new methods (combined linguistic and rhetorical analysis) and new sites (apparatus texts) for examining gender in canonical and pedagogical materials.

Depinning of Trapped Magnetic Flux in Bulk Niobium SRF Cavities
S. Aull,J. Knobloch
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Trapped magnetic flux is known to be a significant contribution to the residual resistance of superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities. The additional losses depend strongly if the vortices are depinned by the RF. The depinning is affected by the purity of the material, and the size of the pinning centers, as well as the cavity operation frequency. One may define a depinning frequency, above which significant depinning occurs. This publication presents a derivation of the depinning frequency from experimental data. We find a depinning frequency of 673 MHz for RRR 110 niobium. On this basis the currently used model is extended to describe the trapped flux sensitivity as function of residual resistance ratio (RRR) and operation frequency while also accounting for the pinning center size and the treatment history of the cavity. Moreover, the model offers an explanation for the significantly higher trapped flux sensitivity reported for nitrogen doped and 120 C baked cavities.

Pancreas Transplantation: Does Age Increase Morbidity?
Cheguevara Afaneh,Barrie S. Rich,Meredith J. Aull,Choli Hartono,David B. Leeser,Sandip Kapur
Journal of Transplantation , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/596801
Abstract: Introduction. Pancreas transplantation (PTx) is the only definitive intervention for type 1 diabetes. Medical advancements in diabetes care have led to an aging PTx candidate pool. We report our experience with patients ≥50 years of age undergoing PTx. Methods. We reviewed 136 consecutive PTx patients at our institution from 1996–2010; 17 were ≥50 years of age. We evaluated demographics, surgical complications, acute rejection (AR) rates, nonsurgical infections, and survival outcomes. Results. Demographic data was similar (>.05) between groups, excluding age. The two groups had comparable major and minor surgical complication rates (=.10 and =.25, resp.). The older group had a lower 1-year and overall AR rate (=.04 and =.03, resp.). The incidence of non-surgical infections and overall patient and graft survival was similar between groups (>.05). Conclusion. Older patients with type 1 diabetes are feasible candidates for PTx, as surgical morbidity, incidence of infections, and AR rates are low.
Friedrich Schiller y la biografía
Pedro AULLóN DE HARO,María-Rosario MARTí MARCO
Cuadernos Dieciochistas , 2009,
Abstract: RESUMEN: Este artículo trata, en primer término, de ofrecer una reflexión de valor teórico general acerca del género de la biografía, proponiendo incluso una diferenciación de tipos, en la cual es distinguida con especial mención la reciente biografía dedicada por Rüdiger Safranski a Friedrich Schiller. En segundo lugar, se hace examen de la bibliografía biográfica acerca del gran poeta y pensador alemán para, finalmente, centrar el estudio en el referido libro de Safranski y el significado de la figura y la obra schillerianas. ABSTRACT: The primary aim of this essay is to provide a general theoretical reflection on biography as a genre, at the same time offering a discrimination of its different types, with particular reference to Rüdiger Safranski’s recent biography of Friedrich Schiller. Secondarily, we also examine several biographical studies of the great German thinker and poet before focussing on Safranski’s work and on the figure and overall significance of Schiller.
Immunglobulin-Therapie bei steroidresistenter Hashimoto-Enzephalopathie: Ein Fallbericht
Gr?ppel G,Aull-Watschinger S,Baumgartner C,Holzner F
Journal für Neurologie, Neurochirurgie und Psychiatrie , 2002,
Abstract: Die Hashimoto-Enzephalopathie ist eine neurologische Manifestation der Hashimoto-Thyreoiditis. Typische klinische Symptome sind Verwirrtheit, epileptische Anf lle, Tremor, Ataxie, schlaganfall hnliche Episoden und Myoklonien. Im MRT k nnen sowohl eine Atrophie als auch hyperintense L sionen sichtbar sein. In der Liquordiagnostik zeigt sich ein erh hter Proteinwert mit oder ohne Zellzahlerh hung. Im EEG zeigen sich generalisierte sowie fokale Verlangsamungen. Es werden auch triphasische Wellen beschrieben. Therapeutisch spricht die Hashimoto-Enzephalopathie in den meisten F llen gut auf die Gabe von Cortison an. Wir stellen eine Patientin mit Hashimoto-Enzephalopathie vor, welche keine Besserung auf Cortison zeigte. Erst die Gabe von Immunglobulinen führte zu einer signifikanten Besserung im Zustandsbild der Patientin.

Introduction Pancreas transplantation remains the best intervention for type 1 diabetes mellitus that reestablishes normoglycemia without the need for insulin therapy. Improvements in the physician’s armamentarium to reduce the development of diabetic complications have lead to the emergence of a healthier aging population of type 1 diabetics in need of pancreas transplantation [1, 2]. Progress in surgical techniques, critical care, and immunosuppressive medications have also expanded the pool of transplant candidates to include a significant proportion of patients over the age of 50 [3]. Despite continued improvements in the field of transplantation, pancreas transplantation has the highest morbidity of all routinely performed abdominal solid organ transplantation procedures [2, 4]. To further complicate this procedure, the transplant pool often consists of older diabetic patients, who will naturally have more preoperative comorbidities than their younger counterparts. Thus, weighing the risk of the pancreas transplantation procedure against the benefit of insulin independence has been debatable [5, 6]. Salvalaggio et al. demonstrated a lower mortality in patients receiving pancreas transplants, regardless of age, than those remaining on the waiting list, even with older (45 years or older) donors, compared to remaining on the waiting list [7]. Many institutions have placed age limitations on potential pancreas transplant recipients, considering age a risk factor for inferior outcomes. In one study patients 50 years of age or older had a higher incidence of graft thromboses and
Combining Public Key Encryption with Schnorr Digital Signature  [PDF]
Laura Savu
Journal of Software Engineering and Applications (JSEA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jsea.2012.52016
Abstract: This article presents a new signcryption scheme which is based on the Schnorr digital signature algorithm. The new scheme represents my personal contribution to signcryption area. I have implemented the algorithm in a program and here are provided the steps of the algorithm, the results and some examples. The paper also contains the presentation of the original Signcryption scheme, based on ElGamal digital signature and discusses the practical applications of Signcryption in real life. The purpose of the study is to combine the public key encryption with Schnorr digital signature in order to obtain less computational and communicational costs. Signcryption primitive is a better approach then Encrypt-then-Sign or Sign-then-Encrypt methods regarding the costs. All these algorithms offer the possibility to transmit a message over an insecure channel providing both authenticity and confidentiality.
Practical Stabilization for Uncertain Pseudo-Linear and Pseudo-Quadratic MIMO Systems  [PDF]
Laura Celentano
International Journal of Modern Nonlinear Theory and Application (IJMNTA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijmnta.2013.21004
Abstract:

In this paper the problem of practical stabilization for a significant class of MIMO uncertain pseudo-linear and pseudo-quadratic systems, with additional bounded nonlinearities and/or bounded disturbances, is considered. By using the concept of majorant system, via Lyapunov approach, new fundamental theorems, from which derive explicit formulas to design state feedback control laws, with a possible imperfect compensation of nonlinearities and disturbances, are stated. These results guarantee a specified convergence velocity of the linearized system of the majorant system and a desired steady-state output for generic uncertainties and/or generic bounded nonlinearities and/or bounded disturbances.

Book Announcement of L. Celentano, Robust Tracking Controllers Design with Generic References for Continuous and Discrete Uncertain Linear SISO Systems, LAP LAMBERT Academic Publishing, 2012  [PDF]
Laura Celentano
International Journal of Modern Nonlinear Theory and Application (IJMNTA) , 2014,
Abstract:

In this book new results on controller design techniques for the tracking of generic reference inputs are presented. They allow the design of a controller for an uncertain process, either continuous or discrete-time, without zeros, and with measurable state. The controller guarantees that the control system is Type 1 and has the desired constant gain and poles or that the control system tracks, with a specified maximum error and with a specified maximum time constant, a generic reference with bounded derivative (variation in the discrete-time case), also in the presence of a generic disturbance with bounded derivative (variation). In addition, it is considered the case in which the reference is known a priori.

The utility and the efficiency of the proposed methods are illustrated with attractive and significant examples of motion control and temperature control.

This book is useful for the design of control systems, especially for manufacturing systems, that are versatile, fast, precise and robust.
