This article analyses the image of Hungarians in Lithuanian customs of masking and oral folklore. The views of Lithuanians about this nation will be examined as they are reflected in the 19th and the first half of the 20th century in Lithuanian folklore.

Abstract  

Accurate nuclide identification depends on the ability to determine if specific peaks are present in the spectrum. Several current handheld nuclide identifiers and portal monitors use a variant of a peak quality value for this. The peak quality is usually calculated as the peak area divided by the uncertainty of the peak area and when this quotient is above a threshold value, the peak is said to be present. Other works [Terracol et al. In: 2004 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record, Rome, Italy, 2004, Ryder In: Scanning Electron Microscopy/1977 V. 1, Proceedings of the Workshop on Analytical Electron Microscopy, Chicago, 1977] have developed a formalism to calculate the peak uncertainty for interfering peaks based on the detector resolution, background, individual peak areas, and peak separation. The threshold on peak uncertainty determines the minimum activity that will be identified or detected. Care must be used in the selection of the threshold in order to comply with the false positive and false negative requirements of the detection system regime, or “concept of operations”. The performance standards for the handheld identifiers and portal monitors specify the nuclides required to be identified. From this list and other commonly expected nuclides, the energies of the expected gamma rays can be tallied, yielding a table of the separations of adjacent peaks possible in the collected spectrum. Using the formalism, the peak quality value can be determined as a function of the detector resolution, peak area and background for the energy separations in the table determined above. Results are shown for the cases of HEU and plutonium with the masking nuclides of NORM, 133Ba, or 57Co for both germanium and sodium iodide detectors. Typical resolutions, efficiencies and counting times were used.

Abstract  

Use of hydrogen peroxide as a masking agent for uranium during the EDTA titration of yttrium in an yttrium-uranium mixture containing large amounts of uranium has been investigated. High acetate ion concentration was necessary to keep the peroxy complex of uranium in solution during the titration. It has been observed that upto 500 mg of uranium could be tolerated in the determination of yttrium with 0.5 ml of 30% hydrogen peroxide in {lM acetate medium. The precision and accuracy of the method based on 16 determinations of yttrium at 6–16 mg level in presence of 300 mg uranium has been found to be ±0.2%.

The lion dance is one of the most popular momentum of kagura ceremonies and folk feasts, the matsuris. It also appears in the ancient tradition of the nô theatre. The cult of the lion spread in China and it must have reached Korea and Japan by the transmission of Buddhist mythology. It was not only religion that had an intermediary role, but the practice of court music. The characteristics and musical structure of the folk or kagura variety of the lion dance are presented and analyzed.
