Kiwifruit Quality Related to Position on the Plant
Although kiwifruit have been grown and exported since decades in Chile, early fruit softening is still an important problem. Some studies relate fruit quality problems to climate, orchard and fruit management and high ...
Some properties and inequalities related to the kth inverse moment of a positive binomial variateSome properties and inequalities related to the kth inverse moment of a positive binomial variate
We present some known properties of bk(n, p) the kth inverse moment of a positive binomial variate. Additional properties of this function and new bounds are derived. Keywords: Probability, statistics, life contingencies, ...
Sending classical information through relativistic quantum channels
We investigate how special relativity influences the transmission of classical information through quantum channels by evaluating the Holevo bound when the sender and the receiver are in (relativistic) relative motion. By ...
Fingerprint Database Variations for WiFi Positioning
(IJCT Foundation, 2013-12)
Indoor positioning systems calculate the position of a mobile device (MD) in an enclosed environment with relative precision. Most systems use WiFi infrastructure and several positioning techniques, where the most commonly ...
Stochastic modelling considering ionospheric scintillation effects on GNSS relative and point positioning
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-05-03)
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), in particular the Global Positioning System (GPS), have been widely used for high accuracy geodetic positioning. The Least Squares functional models related to the GNSS observables ...
Colony defense behavior of the primitively eusocial wasp, Mischocyttarus cerberus is related to age
(Univ Arizona, 2010-08-18)
The colony defense behavior of the wasp Mischocyttarus cerberus Richards (Hymenoptera, Vespidae) was studied to verify whether there were different reactions of wasps of different ages and hierarchical positions during ...
Function and position determine relative proportions of different fiber types in limb muscles of the lizard Tropidurus psammonastes
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2014-10)
Skeletal muscles can be classified as flexors or extensors according to their function, and as dorsal or ventral according to their position. The latter classification evokes their embryological origin from muscle masses ...
Row spacing, landscape position, and maize grain yield
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014-01)
The use of narrow row spacing for the different landscape positions of a field could punish maize (Zea mays L.) grain yield. Two experiments were conducted (2006/07 and 2007/08) at different landscape positions in the ...
