For other universities with similar names, see Pázmáneum Pázmány Péter Catholic University is a private university of the Catholic Church in Hungary, recognized by the state. Founded in 1635, the PPCU is one of Hungary's oldest and most prestigious institutions of higher education.The Faculty of Theology was established by archbishop Péter Pázmány in Nagyszombat, the Kingdom of Hungary in 1635. The university is located in three cities: the Rectors' Office, the Faculty of Theology, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Information Technology, and the Postgraduate Institute of Canon-Law are located in Budapest. The campus of the Vitéz János Faculty of Teaching is in Esztergom, around the Esztergom Basilica. The campus of the Faculty of Humanities is in Piliscsaba, in the vicinity of Budapest.The university has several research groups and institutes. One of the most important international research programmes of the university is the Syro-Hungarian Archeological Mission, which does the restoration of Margat's crusader fortress.Nearly 10.000 students attend the university, enrolled in several Bachelor, Master, and PhD programmes.It has a wide range of international cooperations, including the Erasmus programme and bilateral agreements. It was named in 2009 as one of the most active members of the Erasmus programme. It is a co-establisher of the International Research Universities Network and has strong connections with Radboud University Nijmegen, Catholic University of Leuven, Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, Saint Louis University and University of Notre Dame.

In this paper we investigate evidences supporting the network concept of epilepsies from different approaches. Firstly the functions of cortical networks in which most of the epileptic networks are embedded, are treated. Then the tentative characteristics of an epileptic network are enumerated and the conversion mechanisms from physiological to epileptic networks are analyzed. Later the role of neuronal oscillations in epileptic networks and aspects of epilepsies provoked by sensory and cognitive tasks is studied. Lastly new fMRI data in mapping BOLD networks underlying spike and seizure discharges are used as arguments in favour of the epileptic network hypothesis. In a second part the well-known epilepsies related, or probably related to physiological networks are shown. Finally consequences of the network approach for creating a new unified epilepsy classification are discussed. Source

A single-shot quadrature phase-shifting interferometry architecture is presented that is applicable to antenna coupled detector technologies. The method is based on orthogonally polarized object and reference beams and on linear and circular polarization sensitive antennas in space-division multiplexing. The technique can be adapted to two-, three-, and four-step and Gabor holography recordings. It is also demonstrated that the space-division multiplexing does not necessarily cause sparse sampling. A sub-THz detector array is presented containing multiple on-chip antennas and FET plasma wave detectors implemented in a 90 nm complementary metal-oxide semiconductor technology. As an example, two-step phase-shifting reconstruction results are given at 360 GHz. © 2012 Optical Society of America. Source

Surface plasmon resonance (SPR) has been efficiently applied for chemical and biosensing. In this paper, we present a new numerical simulation for the Kretschman type SPR sensors. In order to apply a circuit approach, we decomposed the problem by (1) using GAMESS to determine the dielectric function of the molecular layer, (2) using Computer Simulation Technology Microwave Studio to calculate the electromagnetic field. An interactive computer-aided design technique is presented for Kretschmann-type biosensors. Copyright © 2012 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Source

An antenna-coupled field effect transistor (FET) as a plasma wave terahertz detector is used with the current steering to record separately the gate-source and gate-drain photoresponses and their phase sensitive combination. This method is based on the observation that the plasmon-terminal coupling is cut off in saturation, resulting in only one-sided sensitivity. A polarimetric example is presented with intensity and polarization angle reconstruction using a single three-terminal antenna-coupled Si-metal-oxide semiconductor FET (MOSFET). The technique is applicable to various detection schemes and technologies (high electron mobility transistors and GaAs-, GaN-, and Si-MOSFETs), and other application possibilities are discussed. © 2013 Optical Society of America.

Journal of Pragmatics | Year: 2013

Should pragmatics incorporate some key notions of classical rhetoric, or is it better to insist on its own concepts? How do we imagine the relationship between pragmatics and rhetoric? The aim of this paper is to explore three classic rhetorical terms (enthymeme, trope, and figure of thought) as being closely related to Gricean implicature. After discussing different attitudes to rhetoric held among pragmaticists, the definitions are scrutinized and straightforward examples are analyzed in the light of the literature on implicatures. It is argued that classical rhetoric describes a great number of phenomena on empirical grounds which manifest themselves not only in public speeches but in everyday conversations as well. Although tropes have been discussed extensively, figures of thought are gravely understudied in pragmatics (with a few exceptions such as the simile and the rhetorical question). The paper specifies which figures of thought convey, per se, conversational implicature. It is difficult to assess, however, the similarity of enthymeme to implicature because of their vagueness. As a link between rhetoric and pragmatics, the two notions are proposed to complement each other: enthymemes have one or more missing premises, whereas in case of implicatures it is the conclusion which remains unexpressed. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
