We were both of us not a little stiff as the result of sleeping out in the
open all that night, for even in Grand Canary the dew-fall and the comparative
chill of darkness are not to be trifled with. For myself on these
occasions I like a bit of a run as an early refresher. But here on this rough
ground in the middle of the island there were not three yards of level to
be found, and so as Coppinger proceeded to go through some sort of
dumb-bell exercises with a couple of lumps of bristly lava, I followed his
example. Coppinger has done a...
The distinction between achievements and accomplishments is known to be an empirically important but subtle one. It is argued here to depend on the atomicity (rather than punctuality) of events, and to be strongly related to incrementality (i.e., to event-object mapping functions). A computational treatment of incrementality and atomicity is discussed in the paper, and a number of related empirical problems considered, notably lexical polysemy in verb - argument relationships.
Whatever the context, be it solid, liquid, or some transitionary setting, materials science seeks an understanding of a material's macromolecular structure and properties by drawing on knowledge of its atomic and molecular constituents. Until recently, the term ''materials science'' was used primarily to denote empirical study, fundamental research, synthesis, a
In the present article, we address the question that how important role do the Quantum Mechanic (QM) and Molecular Mechanics (MM) forces play in ligand docking on protein, via the use semi-quantum relaxation approach (SQRA) using different forces, e.g. quantum, Van der Waals and Coulomb ones, in the process of ligand - protein docking. The QM approximation is applied to calculate the QM forces of neighbor protein-atoms acting on ligands. The L-J 6-12 empirical potential model and Coulomb rule are applied to calculate the forces from the rest protein-atoms on each ligand - atom.
