Now neutron diffraction is widely applied for the research of crystal, magnetic structure and internal stress of crystalline materials of various classes, including nanocrystalls. In the present book, we make practically short excursion to modern state of neutron diffraction researches of crystal materials of various classes.

THE IMPACT OF LOGISTICS STRATEGY AND LOGISTICS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROCESSES ON SERVICE PERFORMANCE If parents select schools for effectiveness, wealthy parents
should be better able to obtain effective schools in markets where decentralized governance
facilitates the choice of schools through residential location, and student performance should
be more tightly associated with peer characteristics in these markets.
Computing the usual productivity measures requires data on the value of
transactions and either prices or quantities. In the final research study of this
volume, Erwin Diewert notes that Canada lacks direct price and quantity measures
for many important services industries. Other nations also have this problem.
As a result, the usual productivity indexes cannot be evaluated properly for
those services industries, nor can we get a complete picture of productivity performance
for the economy as a whole.
The public service is being transformed as reform is occurring at all levels
of government both here and abroad. Although some of the changes
address narrow, specific issues, increasingly more radical innovations are
commonplace. A key example is the effort to modify or eliminate the
distinguishing characteristic of the merit system: safeguarding the independence
of the public servant corps from political influence.
Fundamental to the design of reliable, high-performance network services is an understanding of
the performance characteristics of the service as perceived by the client population as a whole.
Understanding and measuring such end-to-end service performance is a challenging task. Current
techniques include periodic sampling of service characteristics from strategic locations in the
network and instrumenting Web pages with code that reports client-perceived latency back to a
In this work, we present an experimental analysis of a Dialogue System for the automatization of simple telephone services. Starting from the evaluation of a preliminar version of the system we 1 conclude the necessity to desing a robust and flexible system suitable to have to have different dialogue control strategies depending on the characteristics of the user and the performance of the speech recognition module. Experimental results following the PARADISE framework show an important improvement both in terms of task success and dialogue cost for the proposed system. ...
