A new procedure for calculation and analysis of dispersion relation and real atomic vibration of fcc crystals containing dopant atom has been developed using anharmonic effective potential. Analytical expressions for dispersion relation separated by acoustic and optical branches; forbidden zone; effective force constant; Debye frequency and temperature; amplitude and phase of real vibration of atomic chain containing dopant atom have been derived. They contain Morse potential parameters characterizing vibration of each pair of atoms. ...
A back -propagation artificial neural net has been trained to estimate the activity values of a set of 18 N-alkyl-N-acyl- -aminoamide derivatives from the results of molecular mechanics and RHF/PM3/SCF MO semi-empirical calculations. The input descriptors include molecular properties such as the partition coefficient P, 3d structure dependent parameters, charge dependent parameters, and topological descriptors.
In this volume I present some examples of Description of Surfaces, Partial Derivatives, Gradient,
Directional Derivatives and Taylor’s Formula, cf. also Calculus 2b, Functions of Several Variables.
Since my aim also has been to demonstrate some solution strategy I have as far as possible structured
the examples according to the following form
A Awareness, i.e. a short description of what is the problem.
D Decision, i.e. a reflection over what should be done with the problem.
I Implementation, i.e. where all the calculations are made.
C Control, i.e. a test of the result....
Analytical expressions for the ratio of the root mean square fluctuation in atomic positions on the equilibrium lattice positions and the nearest neighbor distance and the mean melting curves of bcc binary alloys have been derived. This melting curve provides information on Lindemann’s melting temperatures of binary alloys with respect to any proportion of constituent elements and on their euctectic points. Numerical results for some bcc binary alloys are found to be in agreement with experiment. Keywords: Lindemann’s melting temperature, eutectic point, bcc binary alloys.
Here are my online notes for my Calculus II course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes” they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus II or needing a refresher in some of the topics from the class. These notes do assume that the reader has a good working knowledge of Calculus I topics including limits, derivatives and integration by substitution.

The money market is traditionally defined as the market for financial
assets that have original maturities of one year or less. In essence, it is
the market for short-term debt instruments. Financial assets traded in
this market include such instruments as U.S. Treasury bills, commercial
paper, some medium-term notes, bankers acceptances, federal agency
discount paper, most certificates of deposit, repurchase agreements,
floating-rate agreements, and federal funds.
If the text you're using for general chemistry seems to lack sufficient mathematics and physics in its presentation of classical mechanics, molecular structure, and statistics, this complementary science series title may be just what you're looking for. Written for the advanced lower-division undergraduate chemistry course, The Physical Basis of Chemistry, Second Edition, offers students an opportunity to understand and enrich the understanding of physical chemistry with some quantum mechanics, the Boltzmann distribution, and spectroscopy.
The book starts with an explanation of compounding a present and future
value and builds up the calculations into net present value and internal rate
of return. Other methods follow to analyse fixed income products, derivatives,
foreign exchange, equities and leasing. Since Excel allows the layout of
each stage of calculation, it is better suited to automating and displaying the
This chapter aims to cover theoretical and computational studies on or-
ganometallic molecules. Section 2 covers the s-block elements, Section 3 covers
the p-block metals and Section 4 covers the d- and f-block metals. Clusters,
carbonyls and metal-metal bonded systems containing M-C bonds are included.
Cyanide complexes, metal fullerene derivatives, extended systems and organic
species on metal surfaces are excluded except where calculations have been
performed on model complexes designed to mimic solid state and surface chem-
1. A. “Demand and Consumer Choice”, including addendum “Consumer Choice and Indifference Curves”
The candidate should be able to:
a. explain consumer choice in an economic framework;
Principles behind Consumer Choice
i) Limited income versus unlimited desires necessitates choices.
ii) Consumers make rational choices to achieve their goals.
iii) Consumers can substitute between “like” goods.
iv) Consumers make decisions based on less than perfect information.
In an attempt to glean potential trends, this study divides the subjects of the 641
filings into categories based in part on their occupation and in part on their relation-
ship to the insurance or investment product involved in the transaction. The data is
derived from several sources on the SAR-SF: the narrative section (Part VI), Field 7
(“Occupation or Type of Business”), and Field 19 (“Is this individual/business associated/
affiliated with the reporting financial institution?”).
The study characterizes the subjects based on their relationship to the insurance
The Manager is responsible for the day-to-day
management of the Fund and its investment portfolio
in compliance with the Fund’s constating documents.
The Manager monitors and evaluates the performance
of the Fund, pays for the investment management
services of the investment advisors and provides all
related administrative services required by the Fund.
As compensation for its services the Manager is
entitled to receive a fee payable monthly, calculated
at the maximum annual rates included in Note 8(d)....
Analytical expressions for the Morse potential parameters of diamond crystals have been derived. They contain the energy of sublimation, the compressibility and the lattice constant. Numerical calculations have been carried out for Si and Sn, and the results reflect fundamental properties of this potential. The obtained Morse potential parameters have been used for calculation of the anharmonic correlated effective potentials of these crystals in XAFS theory showing clearly anharmonic effects .
After being frequently urged to write upon this subject, and as often declining to do it, from apprehension of
my own inability, I am at length compelled to take up the pen, however unqualified I may still feel myself for
The use of the Foxglove is getting abroad, and it is better the world should derive some instruction, however
imperfect, from my experience, than that the lives of men should be hazarded by its unguarded exhibition, or
that a medicine of so much efficacy should be condemned and rejected as dangerous and unmanageable.
The Institute strongly urges the Commission to adjust the dollar thresholds to correct for this
erosion. Section 413 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act required
the Commission to exclude the value of private residences from the net worth calculations in the
definition of “accredited investor,” which it did in 2011.
Although a steadily increasing number of protein±ligand
docking experiments have been performed successfully,
there are only few studies concerning protein±sugar inter-actions. In this study, we investigate the interaction of wheat
germ agglutinin (WGA) withN-acetylglucosamine and a
number of its derivatives and predict the binding free ener-gies using ¯exible docking techniques.
Basics of Corporate Finance serves as an introductory course for students beginning
their study of finance and financial markets. The ideas and calculations presented in
this workbook serve as the foundation for continued study in the areas related to
corporate finance and the capital and derivative markets. The purpose of this course
is to help the student build a working vocabulary of the financial world and to
understand the basic computations used by analysts working in the corporate finance
This booklet contains the questions that were used to derive scores on the edition of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT®) with test code 52. If the first two digits of the test code on your answer sheet (item 5 on Side 1) are not 52, please contact ETS to send you the correct booklet to match your answer sheet. The answer key follows the test questions. This booklet also contains instructions for calculating raw scores corrected for guessing.
