[73] Spectrophotometric and turbidimetric methods for measuring proteins

The turbidity produced when protein is mixed with low concentrations of any of the common protein precipitants can be used as an index of protein concentration. The resulting turbidity is maximum after about 10 minutes and may be measured spectrophotometrically...

Management Models and Industrial Applications of Linear Programming

An accelerating increase in linear programming applications to industrial problems has made it virtually impossible to keep abreast of them, not only because of their number (and diversity) but also because of the conditions under which many are carried...

Spatial variation of currents and fields due to localized scatterers in metallic conduction

Localized scatterers can be expected to give rise to spatial variations in the electric field and in the current distribution. The transport equation allowing for spatial variations is solved by first considering the homogeneous transport equation which...

Congenital deaf-mutism, functional heart disease with prolongation of the Q-T interval, and sudden death

Four cases of deaf-mutism combined with a peculiar heart disease have been observed in one family. The parents and 2 other children were healthy and had normal hearing. The deaf-mute children all suffered attacks of fainting, probably Adams-Stokes seizures...
