We consider supervisor synthesis of Extended Finite Automata that are represented using Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs). Peak used BDD nodes and BDD operation count are introduced as platform independent and deterministic metrics that quantitatively indicate the computational effort needed to synthesize a supervisor. The use of BDD operation...

We construct theoretical models for time-dependent swelling of coal matrix material upon adsorption of a single gas, taking into account a coupling between stress, strain, chemical potential, and diffusion. Two models are developed. The first (model A) corresponds to diffusion and hence swelling rates being controlled by the jump frequency of...

Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) arrays provide more degrees of freedom than conventional phased arrays. They require that every transmitting element of the array can be identified when received. One way to achieve this is to give every element its own unique frequency. Offset-transmitters may be used to introduce MIMO or Doppler...

Software has become an integral part of our daily lives and should therefore account for human values such as trust, autonomy and privacy. Human values have received increased attention in the field of Requirements Engineering over the last few years, but existing work offers no systematic way to use elicited values in requirements engineering...

Gaze-independent event-related potential (ERP) based brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) yield relatively low BCI performance and traditionally employ unimodal stimuli. Bimodal ERP-BCIs may increase BCI performance due to multisensory integration or summation in the brain. An additional advantage of bimodal BCIs may be that the user can choose...

Survival of children with Down syndrome (DS) has improved considerably, but insight into their level of daily functioning upon entering adulthood is lacking. We collected cross-sectional data from a Dutch nationwide cohort of 322 DS adolescents aged 16-19 (response 62.8%) to assess the degree to which they master various practical and social...

We present a high performance surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor based on two dimensional (2D) ultra-thin (40 nm) gold nanoslit arrays. These structures were designed to exhibit narrow linewidth (FWHM) and high transmission SPR under non-polarized illumination. In addition, we show the influence of the geometrical design on the performance...

This note comments on a paper by Triantaphyllou (J. Multi-Crit. Decis. Anal. 2001; 10: 11–25) that attempts to demonstrate new types of rank reversal that can occur with the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). He contends that the reversals are attributable to the various types of normalization that are used with the addition step in AHP synthesis...

Background Employees absent from work through sickness often have contact with their GP and their occupational physician (OP). Little is as yet known about what they think of such contacts. We studied the employees' experience with and their opinions about these doctors. Method Unemployment services sent questionnaires to a sample of 5800 sick...

Prospect interdependencies, if present and positively correlated, result in a higher standard deviation of the portfolio volumetric expectation curve, compared to a portfolio with independent prospects. This wider uncertainty range offers options for companies to increase the expected cumulative net present value (NPV) of the exploration...

Introduction: This paper describes the development and initial psychometric evaluation of the Handicap Scale for Children (HSC). This questionnaire is based on the London Handicap Scale (LHS), a valid and reliable utility instrument for measuring social participation in adults. Methods: A multidisciplinary research group was involved in...

This study represents the development and validation of a cardiac-specific module of the generic health-related quality of life (HRQoL) instrument, the TAAQOL (TNO/AZL Adult Quality Of Life), for young adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Items were selected based on literature, an explorative previous study in CHD patients, interviews...

Purpose of this study was to report which existing survey instruments assess participation according to the International Classification of Functioning. Disability and Health (ICF). A literature search for relevant survey instruments was conducted. Subsequently, survey instruments were evaluated of which the complete questionnaire, published in...

Defensins, antimicrobial peptides of the innate immune system, protect human mucosal epithelia and skin against microbial infections and are produced in large amounts by neutrophils. The bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus aureus is insensitive to defensins by virtue of an unknown resistance mechanism. We describe a novel staphylococcal gene, mprF...

To investigate whether macrophages influence the efficacy of adjuvants, we locally eliminated lymph node macrophages with dichloromethylene diphosphonate containing liposomes before primary immunization. After macrophage elimination, animals were immunized with a soluble antigen (TNP-KLH; 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl-keyhole limpet haemocyanin) either...

In this study we demonstrate a hitherto undescribed phenomenon, namely that thymus-independent type-2 antigens (TI-2 Ag) localize in splenic follicles within 1 h after administration. The follicular localization of 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl (TNP)-Ficoll was not antibody mediated. In addition in case of high-dose administration we observed a...
