Is a branch of polymer science dealing with analysis and characterisation of polymers. üThe complication of macromolecular chains, the dispersion in molecular weight, tacticity, crystallinity, orientation, composition of polymers etc. and complex morphological systems ⇒ analysis of polymer ≠ the small organic materials ⇒ Focus on viscoelastic properties, dynamic mechanical testing.
Research in starch biosynthesis is likely to have a great impact on agriculture
and industry in coming years. Although the original purpose of research
into starch synthesis was not industrial application, it is an example of how
science, while trying to answer fundamental questions, may lead to the
manipulation of nature for beneficial purposes.
Although the basic studies of starch synthesis were carried out in England
during the 1940s, and led to the discovery of phosphorylase and Q-enzyme
(branching enzyme), the basis of our modern ideas originated in Argentina
from the work of Luis F.
We believe that it is interesting to study the system and software architecture of
environments which integrate the evolving ideas of computational grids, distributed objects,
web services, peer-to-peer networks and message oriented middleware. Such peer-to-peer (P2P)
Grids should seamlessly integrate users to themselves and to resources which are also linked
to each other. We can abstract such environments as a distributed system of “clients” which
consist either of “users” or “resources” or proxies thereto.
While the consumption of prestige or status products involves purchasing a higher-priced product to embellish
one‘s ego (Eastman et al. 1997), the term ―luxury‖ and the consumption of luxury goods involves purchasing a
product that represents value to both, to the individual and their reference group. Therefore, in addition to the
socially oriented luxury brand consumption and the human desire ‗to impress others‘, a personally oriented type
of consumption should be considered in the marketing management of luxury brands.
Given the spatial relationships extracted as described above, our
goal is to integrate this information into an optimization framework
with a properly deﬁned cost function quantifying the quality of the
furniture arrangement. Given an arbitrary room layout populated by
furniture objects, the synthesized arrangement should be useful for
virtual environment modeling in games and movies, interior design
software, and other applications.
The search space of our problem is highly complex as objects are
interdependent in the optimization process.
Extent of knowledge sharing: Related to the above problem is the question of how much knowledge is available
to the system during its query optimization process. In particular, the ﬁrst step in choosing a query evaluation strategy
is likely to be identifying which nodes have materialized views that can speed query processing. A simple technique
would be to use a centralized catalog of all available views and their locations, analogous to the central directory used
by Napster. Yet this model introduces a single point of failure and a potential scalability bottleneck.
There are only a couple of educational institutions including universities that
look into media education, and offer projects and conferences. According to Kumar,
media education should lead to democratic communication. He defines media
education as a teaching method that uses formal, non-formal, and informal approaches
to impart a critical understanding of various media in order to lead to greater
responsibility, greater participation in the production of media as well as to a greater
interest in the sales and reception of media.
Kinetic experiments with a substrate series of phenylacetyl-arylamides reveal that at least one polar group in the amine
moiety is required for the proper orientation of the substrate
in the large nucleophile-binding subsite of penicillin acylase
ofEscherichia coli. Quantum mechanical molecular model-ling of enzyme–substrate interactions in the enzyme active
site shows that in the case of substrates lacking local sym-metry, the productive binding implies two nonsymmetrical
arrangements with respect to the two positively charged
guanidinium residues of ArgA145 and ArgB263....

Nutritional Biochemistry takes a scientific approach to nutrition. It covers not just "whats"--nutritional requirements--but why they are required for human health, by describing their function at the cellular and molecular level. Each case study either leads to a subsequent discovery or enables an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of action of various nutrition-related processes. The text is "picture-oriented" and the commentary is directed towards explaining graphs, figures, and tables. ...
