Analytical expression for the Displacement-displacement Correlation Function (DCF) C R has been derived based on the derived Mean Square Relative Displacement (MSRD) σ and the Mean Square Displacement (MSD) u for fcc
crystals. The effective interaction potential of the system has been considered by taking into account the influences of nearest atomic neighbors, and it contains the Morse potential characterizing the interaction of each pair of atoms.
Emphasis on effect sizes is a rapidly rising tide as over 20 journals in
various fields of research now require that authors of research reports
provide estimates of effect size. For certain kinds of applied research it is
no longer considered acceptable only to report that results were statistically
significant. Statistically significant results indicate that a researcher
has discovered evidence of a real difference between parameters
or a real association between variables, but it is one of unknown size.
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 .
This paper explores the relationship between the translation quality and the retrieval effectiveness in Machine Translation (MT) based Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR). To obtain MT systems of different translation quality, we degrade a rule-based MT system by decreasing the size of the rule base and the size of the dictionary. We use the degraded MT systems to translate queries and submit the translated queries of varying quality to the IR system. Retrieval effectiveness is found to correlate highly with the translation quality of the queries.

The advantages and limitations of conventional structural MRI for the diagnosis and
monitoring of MS are discussed by Andreadou (Chapter 15). There is often a disparity
between the level of structural abnormality seen on MRI and level of cognitive
difficulties expressed by the patient with MS. Clinical interview and
neuropsychological assessment are vitally impairment, not only from an initial
diagnostic perspective but also in terms of longer term planning and care.
THE EFFECTS OF CUSTOMER LOYALITY ON PROFITABILLITY Chapter Three turns to a wholly different, but not unrelated, topic, the role of
admissions exam scores in the identification of well-prepared students in the college
admissions process. The case for using such exams is often made with validity studies,
which estimate the correlation between test scores and eventual collegiate grades, both with
and without controls for high school grade point average. I argue that there are two
fundamental problems with these studies as they are often carried out.
We also examine the determinants of the return gap. We ﬁnd that
estimated trading costs are negatively related to the return gap. Also,
most funds in our sample exhibit relatively large correlations between
the hypothetical holdings returns and the investor returns, indicating that
their actual investment strategies do not differ signiﬁcantly from their
disclosed strategies. However, some funds have relatively low correlations
between holdings and investor returns.
One finds that there is a positive correlation between a country’s level of development
and insurance coverage. Developed countries tend to have better developed and well-
functioning insurance services sectors both domestically and in terms of insurance exports,
as compared to developing countries. This is perhaps most evident when one compares
the share of industrialized countries in the world insurance markets, which in 2004 stood
at 88.5 per cent as compared with 11.4 per cent for emerging markets, the majority of
which are developing countries.
The book "Developments in Electrochemistry" contains five feature articles in recent advanced electrochemistry. These selected feature articles emphasize physical phenomena rather than mathematical formalisms of electrochemistry.
While there appears to be a rising incidence of problem drinking in the elderly, there are
also reports that low risk drinking may provide benefits to older populations. Indeed.
arguably most of the supposed benefits of alcohol consumption are to be found in older
people. So, for example, the claimed protective effect of alcohol in regard to
cardiovascular disease applies to the late middle aged and elderly. For this reason, the
recommended optimum level of alcohol consumption for health is higher for the elderly
than the young.
While a ﬁlter ismatched against a single notiﬁcation based on the notiﬁcation’s
attribute values, a pattern is matched against one or more notiﬁcations based
on both their attribute values and on the combination they form. At its most
generic, a patternmight correlate events according to any relation. For example,
the programmer of a stockmarket analysis toolmight be interested in receiving
price change notiﬁcations for the stock of one company only if the price of a
related stock has changed by a certain amount.
Learning how to compose an effective extended text, therefore, should be
conceived as a task similar to acquiring expertise in related culturally acquired
domains. It is not merely an extension of our apparent biological predisposition to
acquire spoken language. Rather, it is more similar to learning how to type - which is in
fact one aspect of composition, as a common means of motor output. Or, it is similar to
learning how to play chess - which is another planning intensive task similar to
composition in its demands on thinking and memory. Or, it is similar to learning...
Among the elements of the conferences that have to
do with the elderly, the following are noted: education
about the main health problems and the methods to
prevent them; promotion of food supplies and adequate
nutrition; supply of appropriate drinking water and basic
sanitation; immunization against major infectious diseases;
prevention and control of endemic diseases; appropriate
treatment of common diseases and accident
consequences and availability of essential medication, in
addition to social resources, such as social groups,
universities open to the seniors and awareness about the
Marketers are being challenged by a deluge of data that is well beyond the capacity of their organizations to
comprehend and use. Their strategies are not keeping up with the disruptive effects of technology-empowered
customers; the proliferation of media, channel, and customer contact points; or the possibilities for microsegmentation.
Closing the widening gap between the accelerating complexity of their markets and the limited ability of their
organizations to respond demands new thinking about marketing capabilities.

extent that this is true, Tiebout choice induces a positive correlation between j μ and j x ,

International education is an Australian export success story. From a small base it has now
become Australia’s third largest export sector behind coal and iron ore, and is the largest
service export sector in the economy, worth around $18 billion in 2009.
This study has focused on cardio-respiratory illnesses caused by the principal components of
smog, namely ozone and air-borne particulate matter.
Smog consists of a complex “soup” of
pollutants, some of which may cause human health problems directly and others which may be
precursors to causal contaminants or which are closely correlated with causal contaminants and
hence act as “markers” for human health risks. The complexities associated with the cause/effect
relationships between this soup of pollutants and human health are explored in this report.
