For instance in medical engineering, the inverse EEG (ElectroEncephaloGraphy) problem consists in detecting pointwise dipolar current sources (modeling epileptic foci) located in the brain, from measures of the electric potential on the scalp [14, 17, 18, 19, 22, 33].
QM] which governs the quantum mechanical dynamics of the electromagnetic field, the dipolar vibrational field of water molecules along with their interaction, is then expressed by
Dipolar interaction, however, can cause the particles to assemble and align along the field line (Minerick et al.
There are two main classifications for dipolar disorder, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
The signals at ~+5 ppm are sharper than those at ~10 ppm; as dipolar broadening drops off as function of [r.
However, in dipolar aprotic solvents, which have a high dielectric constant and no hydrogen bond donor ability, for example acetonitrile, ion--neutral association processes are very important: the poorly solvated anions are stabilized by hydrogen bonding with neutral acids.
They deliver a sharp, clear view and feature positive click target turrets and are fully adjustable to correct dipolar and eliminate parallax at any range.
Surrounds are all over the lot: bipolar, dipolar, switchable bipolar/ dipolar, coaxial-you name it.
These molecules are long, heavy, and dipolar in nature; that is, the ends of the molecules have opposing electrical charges.
Permitivity, loss factor, ionic conductivity and dipolar relaxation are among the properties that can be measured.
proposes his conception of the "dynamic, embodied, dipolar self (`I' and `me') fundamentally desiring to be a self and to move beyond the self in relationship" (70).
Dipolar dephasing (DD) experiments (Wilson 1987) were performed by applying the ramped cross polarisation technique and inserting a dipolar dephasing delay ([t.
