The energy landscape of an atomic or molecular projectile interacting with a surface is often described in terms of a corrugation function that gives the classical turning point as a function of position vector parallel to the surface. It is shown here that the relative height variation of the corrugation function for scattering of atoms under classical conditions can be determined by a measurement of the maximum intensity in energy-resolved scattering spectra as a function of surface temperature. This is demonstrated by developing a semiclassical quantum theory of atomic scattering from corrugated surfaces and then extending the theory to the classical limit of large incident energies and high surface temperatures. Comparisons of calculations with available data for Ar atom scattering determine the corrugation amplitude for a molten In surface to be about 29% of the mean interparticle spacing in the bulk liquid. © 2012 American Physical Society.

In this study, we report on a qualitative method known as the Delphi method, used in the first part of a research study for improving the accuracy and reliability of ICD-9-CM coding. A panel of independent coding experts interacted methodically to determine that the three criteria to identify a problematic ICD-9-CM subcategory for further study were cost, volume, and level of coding confusion caused. The Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR) 2007 fiscal year data set as well as suggestions from the experts were used to identify coding subcategories based on cost and volume data. Next, the panelists performed two rounds of independent ranking before identifying Excisional Debridement as the subcategory that causes the most confusion among coders. As a result, they recommended it for further study aimed at improving coding accuracy and variation. This framework can be adopted at different levels for similar studies in need of a schema for determining problematic subcategories of code sets.

Liver ischemia and reperfusion-induced injury is a major clinical complication associated with hemorrhagic or endotoxin shock and thermal injury as well as liver transplantation and resectional surgery. Data obtained from several different studies suggest that an important initiating event in the pathophysiology of ischemia and reperfusion-induced tissue injury is enhanced production of superoxide concomitant with a decrease in the bioavailability of endothelial cell-derived nitric oxide. This review will summarize the evidence supporting the hypothesis that the redox imbalance induced by alterations in superoxide and nitric oxide generation creates a more oxidative environment within the different cells of the liver that enhances the nuclear transcription factor-κB-dependent expression of a variety of different cytokines and mediators that may promote as well as limit ischemia and reperfusion-induced hepatocellular injury. In addition, the evidence implicating endothelial cell nitric oxide synthase-dependent and -independent generation of nitric oxide as important regulatory pathways that act to limit ischemia and reperfusion-induced liver injury and inflammation is also presented. ©2011 JCBN.

Temperature affects all levels of biological organization and multiple aspects of ecological performance and fitness. Descriptions of thermal biology are, therefore, essential pieces of information for studying ecology in varying thermal environments. This paper describes the thermal biology of the spider Rabidosa rabida by using three common descriptive measures. Spiders were collected from two populations on mountains in Arkansas that share similar climate and vegetation. Maximum sprint speed across temperature was used to calculate an estimate of thermal sensitivity of locomotor ability. Spiders were placed in a thermal gradient to determine thermal preference. Spiders' body temperatures were increased or decreased until the ability to move was lost. Results were compared between the populations to describe intraspecific variation. Maximum sprint speed increased across temperatures showing moderate sensitivity (Q10 all spiders = between 1.74 and 2) except at the highest temperatures in males, and the lowest temperatures in both sexes. Maximum sprint speeds differed between populations (P < 0.05). The critical thermal maximum was shown to be 42.9°C ± 0.70. The critical thermal minimum was estimated at 0°C. Thermal preference of R. rabida was determined to be 31.9°C ± 0.44 showing no significant variation between populations. This study provides a first description of thermal biology in an ecologically important spider, and shows evidence of variation between thermal biology measures between populations with similar climate but no gene flow. Having adapted to various and changing conditions in the past, this spider and others like it can provide many ecologically and evolutionarily interesting lines of inquiry. © 2012 Entomological Society of America.

A method to introduce the damping terms in the equations of motion of magnetization in a material consists in defining a positive dissipative function that has a quadratic form in the velocities. The coefficients that appear in this dissipative function must be symmetric. The theory developed by Onsager (1931) states that under the presence of an external magnetic field these coefficients are not symmetric, and therefore, it is not possible to introduce a dissipative function. In this article we present a method to make symmetric the kinetic coefficients and define this dissipative function in a way that allows the introduction of the damping terms in the equations of motion. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.
