A number of generalized metric spaces have been defined or characterized in terms of g-functions. Symmetric g-functions are discussed by C. Good, D. Jennings and A. M. Mohamad. In this paper, some questions about symmetric g-functions are answered, particularly it is shown that every sym-wg-space is expandable.
To order to examine experimentally the modified monostandard method implemented in the program MULTINAA, the FRM reactor in Garching (Germany) was calibrated and an INAA of a standard reference material NIST/SRMI1633b Coal Fly Ash was performed. The relative, thek0-and the modified monostandard standardizations are applied. This work shows that for all of the examined 1/-nuclides the modified monostandard method provides identical analytical results to those determined by thek0-method. For the non-1/ nuclides177Lu and152Eu the monostandard results are correct. Compared with the certified values of the analysed SRM1633b sample and also with the results of the relative method, it can be concluded that the modified monostandard method performed at our experimental conditions gives analytical results with accuracy better than 5%.
In this paper the relations among k-covers, cs*-covers and k-systems are discussed. The following question is partially answered: Does every separable k'-space with a point-countable k-system have a countable k-system?
The problem when a paratopolgical group (or semitopological group) is a topological group is interesting and important. In this paper, we continue to study this problem. It mainly shows that: (1) Let G be a paratopological group and put τ = ωHs(G); then G is a topological group if G is a Pτ-space; (2) every co-locally countably compact paratopological group G with ωHs(G) ≦ ω is a topological group; (3) every co-locally compact paratopological group is a topological group; (4) each 2-pseudocompact paratopological group G with ωHs(G) ≦ ω is a topological group. These results improve some results in [11, 13].
The thermal decomposition of copper(II) acetate monohydrate (CuAc2·H2O) under 500 °C in air was studied by TG/DTG, DTA, in situ FTIR and XRD experiments. The experimental results showed that the thermal decomposition of CuAc2·H2O under 500 °C in air included three main steps. CuAc2·H2O was dehydrated under 168 °C; CuAc2 decomposed to initial solid products and volatile products at 168–302 °C; the initial solid products Cu and Cu2O were oxidized to CuO in air at 302–500 °C. The copper acetate peroxides were found to form between 100 and 150 °C, and the dehydration of these peroxides resulted in the presence of CuAc2·H2O above 168 °C. The initial solid products were found to be the admixture of Cu, Cu2O, and CuO, not simply the single Cu2O as reported before. Detailed reactions involved in these three steps were proposed to describe the complete mechanism and course of the thermal decomposition of CuAc2·H2O in air.
A compute program MULTINAA was developed to facilitate the evaluation of NAA data. It is written for the VAX/VMS syste and opeates in the Canberra/ND Genie spectroscopy software environment. MULTIINAA can be appliede to relative,k0-, monostandard (modified) and absolute methods, including the fast neutron threshold reaction. For each calculation, the available standardizations can be used individually or mixed. In all the standardization modes MULTINAA fetches the data directly from the -ray spectra and libraries, thus reducing the manual work to a minimum. MULTINAA is flexibkle to meet various situations in NAA practical work. The required neutron flux parameters all the non-relative methods are supplied by an accompanying program MULTIFLUX.
This paper reports the applications of INAA in analysis of Chinese ancient porcelain fired from early Northern Song dynasty
(AD 1004–1127) to Late Yuan dynasty (AD 1320–1368) in Hutian Kiln. Minor and trace elements of 168 pieces of ancient porcelain
bodies were determined by INAA. The results of factor analysis and some archaeological questions are also discussed in this
In order to determine the fission yields of lanthanides precisely, lanthanides with carriers of 1–2 mg per element are separated from each other by means of pressurized cation exchange chromatography-HIBA concentration gradient elution: The effects of initial loading technique, concentration gradient, flow rate, and temperature on separation were investigated in detail. Under the optimum conditions adopted according to the results given in this work, all the lanthanides can be completely separated within about 90 minutes with a recovery of more than 95% and purity higher than 99%.
