In this article, we prove that the hybrid μ-calculus, which is the modal μ-calculus extended with nominals and satisfaction operators in the language of hybrid logic, has the small model property as follows: every satisfiable formula is satisfied in a model whose size is bounded by some function on the size of the formula. The obtained bound on the size of the model is then used to obtain a finite, sound and complete axiomatization for this formal system. © 2013 © TheAuthor, 2013. Published by Oxford University Press.

The effect of pore structural properties (porosity and pore diameter) of current collectors in proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers on electrolysis performance was experimentally evaluated by using various titanium (Ti)-felt substrates with different porosities and pore diameters (measured by capillary flow porometry) as the anode current collectors. The current-potential (j-ΔV) characteristics were measured, and overpotential analysis was performed based on the j-ΔV characteristics and the cell resistance (Rcell) data. The results showed that (1) the effect of the decrease in water supply on the membrane resistance due to produced gas bubbles is limited when the mean pore diameter of the anode current collector is less than 50 μm, but might appear at the concentration overpotential, and (2) enhancing the uniform and sufficient contact between the current collector and the electrode reduces not only the contact resistance but also the activation overpotential. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Microbial pathogens of respiratory infectious diseases are often transmitted through particles in sneeze and cough. Therefore, understanding the particle movement is important for infection control. Images of a sneeze induced by nasal cavity stimulation by healthy adult volunteers, were taken by a digital high-vision, high-speed video system equipped with a computer system and treated as a research model. The obtained images were enhanced electronically, converted to digital images every 1/300 s, and subjected to vector analysis of the bioparticles contained in the whole sneeze cloud using automatic image processing software. The initial velocity of the particles or their clusters in the sneeze was greater than 6 m/s, but decreased as the particles moved forward; the momentums of the particles seemed to be lost by 0.15-0.20 s and started a diffusion movement. An approximate equation of a function of elapsed time for their velocity was obtained from the vector analysis to represent the dynamics of the front-line particles. This methodology was also applied for a cough. Microclouds contained in a smoke exhaled with a voluntary cough by a volunteer after smoking one breath of cigarette, were traced as the visible, aerodynamic surrogates for invisible bioparticles of cough. The smoke cough microclouds had an initial velocity greater than 5 m/s. The fastest microclouds were located at the forefront of cloud mass that moving forward; however, their velocity clearly decreased after 0.05 s and they began to diffuse in the environmental airflow. The maximum direct reaches of the particles and microclouds driven by sneezing and coughing unaffected by environmental airflows were estimated by calculations using the obtained equations to be about 84 cm and 30 cm from the mouth, respectively, both achieved in about 0.2 s, suggesting that data relating to the dynamics of sneeze and cough became available by calculation. © 2013 Nishimura et al.
