A class of generalized coherent states with a new type of the identity resolution is constructed by replacing the labeling parameter z n/√n! of the canonical coherent states by Meixner-Pollaczek polynomials with specific parameters. The constructed coherent states belong to the state Hilbert space of the Gol'dman-Krivchenkov Hamiltonian. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.

Plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) are strongly and inversely correlated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. However, it is becoming clear that a functional HDL is a more desirable target than simply increasing HDL-cholesterol levels. The best known antiatherogenic function of HDL particles relates to their ability to promote reverse cholesterol transport from peripheral cells. However, HDL also possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antithrombotic effects. This review focuses on the state of knowledge regarding assays of HDL heterogeneity and function and their relationship to cardiovascular diseases. © 2012 National Lipid Association.

We construct a class of generalized phase coherent states |e iθ γ, α, ε >, indexed by points e iθ of the unit circle and depending on three positive parameters γ, α, and ε, by replacing the labeling coefficient Z n/√n! of the canonical coherent states by circular Jacobi polynomials g n γ with parameter γ ≥ 0. The special case of γ = 0 corresponds to the well-known phase coherent states. The constructed states are superposition of eigenstates of a one-parameter pseudoharmonic oscillator depending on α and constitute a resolution of the identity of the state Hilbert space at the limit ε → 0 +. Closed form for their wavefunctions are obtained in the case α = γ + 1 and their associated coherent states transforms are defined. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.

In this paper, an electronic temperature control system is presented. This contribution aims to provide a not expensive prototype, fast and accurate, which can be used by research laboratories to control the temperature for electrical measurements. This device is based on the implementation of the PID algorithm in an embedded system at 10-bit Analog/Digital Converter (ADC). The electronic schematics and results of this controller are presented and compared with those with an old 8-bits ADC controller and with a standard laboratory regulator. Initial tests are performed on the temperature control of a photovoltaic junction to measure its intrinsic electrical parameters. The obtained results show the range and levels of the advantages of this device. © 2015 IEEE.

The rheological properties of sugar cane bagasse lignin-phenol formaldehyde (PF) (30% lignin-PF) resins were studied using oscillation tests. The bagasse lignin was introduced in the classic adhesive formulation in order to supply a part of PF. Rheological qualities of optimal lignin-PF (30% lignin-PF) resins and commercial PF resin were assessed by using a rotary rheometer (ARES). Dynamic rheological measurements, performed at low strain in the linear range, are useful to characterize the network properties of resins. The results obtained showed that the time sweep indicates excellent structural stability of optimal lignin-PF (30% lignin-PF) resins and commercial PF resin. The elastic modulus is greater than the viscous one showing a remarkable elastic character of the resins, and the performed frequency sweeps show a typical spectrum of a "weak gels" structure. The time dependence at 125°C shows that the optimum cure time is 7.5 min. © 2015 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

In this paper, we derive a new propagator operator for estimating the Angles Of Arrival (AOA) of farfield narrowband electromagnetic waves impinging on antenna array when its number of sensors is larger than the number of radiating sources. The fourth order partition, of the array steering matrix, is presented to estimate the noise subspace using non diagonal partial cross correlation sub-matrices without the eigendecomposition while using all the sensors of the antenna. The Simulation results in presence of an additive white noise and real symmetric Toeplitz noise proved the efficiency of the proposed method comparatively to the ESPRIT estimator. © 2014 IEEE.

We have analyzed the stability of betalains in juices prepared from Moroccan yellow cactus pears (Opuntia ficus indica (L.) Mill.) as a function of temperature and pH. The experiments were carried out at temperatures ranging from 80 to 100°C with juices at pH 3.5, 5 and 6.5. The degree of pigment retention decreased when the temperature increased. The degradation constant rates were determined for thermal degradation rates of pseudo-first order. The Arrhenius plot obtained for the degradation of betaxanthin from the yellow fruits was not linear. Regardless of the temperature of treatment, the lowest degradation was obtained for pH 5. When some stabilizers were tested for the protection of pigments, the results showed that ascorbic acid was a better protective agent at pH 3.5, increasing the protection by 40%. The inhibitive action of betalain pigments extracted from cactus pears towards corrosion of stainless steel in phosphoric acid was investigated using electrochemical polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) methods. It was found that the presence of natural pigments reduces the corrosion rate of the tested metal, especially on addition of the red pigments (97%). The inhibition efficiency increases as the pigment concentration of extracts increases. It was also found that the pigments tested act as mixed inhibitors. The inhibitive action of the extracts is discussed in term of adsorption and that such adsorption follows a Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The calculated values of the free energy of adsorption indicated that the adsorption process is spontaneous.

This paper discusses design and implementation of an operational architecture of practical work remote controlled using embedded systems. This architecture relates to university courses in electronics, such as new approaches of low-cost remote labs. Students can access these labs from a local network in the university at any time and frequently compared to conventional teaching, without being fixed by the conventional schedule. This strategy can solve the problems related to the big number of registrants in Moroccan Faculties, particularly in open access institutions. The hardware and software parts of this prototype are presented and analyzed because they can be generalized in other disciplines. The hardware part is formed with a Arduino microcontroller, which controls an electronic manipulation of a single-phase rectifier, considered as example of a remote controlled manipulation. The evaluation of this educational system is performed by students in the discipline of electronics and industrial systems, which shows the benefits of this realization. © 2015 IEEE.

The Ourika gold showing lies in the High Atlas of Morocco, near Marrakech. It is mainly hosted by Precambrian gneiss and basic dykes, and is controlled by shear zones. Gold mineralization occurs mainly within quartz structures. Fracturing and mineralization are interpreted to have occurred in three stages. Early and intermediate stages involved the deposition of an arsenopyrite–pyrite–quartz–chlorite assemblage, and a chalcopyrite–arsenopyrite–pyrite–quartz–chlorite assemblage, respectively. Early intermediate stage fluid inclusions belong to the C-H-O-N system typical of the retrograde metamorphism that affects the Pan-African terranes at P-T conditions of 140–300 MPa and 240–450 °C, and moderate ductile–brittle deformation. Deposition of native gold, bismuth, bismuthinite and galena during the ore stage from low-salinity aqueous fluids was related to downward penetration of meteoric waters, trapped at P-T conditions of 20–110 MPa and 170–210 °C. Evolving physical conditions and fluid compositions from early to late fluid stages played important roles in ore-forming processes. Owing to structural observations, ore-forming fluids could be linked to regional Variscan hydrothermal event. Gold crystallised as native particles in microfissures crosscutting earlier sulphides. Thus, the gold deposition was late, and appears as a consequence of deeply penetration of oxidising fluids favoured by microfracturing of the already ore (As–Fe–Cu) structures. © 2014, Saudi Society for Geosciences.
