of packaging waste is the proper management of the waste generated. The most common method of preparation for recycling in Europe is sorting. Today, there are many ways to do this, from manual sorting to fully mechanized sorting technologies using

In this paper, logarithmic functions are described based on which the total diversity of a collection can be partitioned into components specific to factorial effects. The standard statistical modus operandi of testing hypotheses in a factorial design is applied, only the test criteria changed. The factor identities are chosen according to stated hypothesis, observations are made and sorted, the associated entropy and information quantities are calculated, and probabilistic tests of significance are performed regarding main effects and interaction terms. The basics are presented in the main text. The partition functions, their Venn diagram mappings, and a complete printout from the application program DIVPART.EXE are collected in a separate Appendix accessible with this article on the publisher’s website.

This study evaluated the effectiveness of an image sorter to select for kernel color within early generations of segregating hard winter wheat populations. The wheat crosses originated from different combinations of white and red parents. Three generations (F3, F4 and F5) of sorting were applied to six segregating populations. At each generation, samples of whitesorted, red-sorted, and unsorted populations, along with the parents of the populations, were planted in replicated trials at multiple locations. The sorter processed 1kg sized samples in ~30 min and samples were sorted for 108 plots per season. ~10% of the F3 populations were sorted and planted as white-sort population. This resulted in minimal changes in the % of white kernels. ~3% of the F4 and F5 populations were sorted and planted as white-sorted populations and significant advancement occurred. The F6 populations of white-sorted samples from Dakota Lake ranged from 80% to 92% white kernels. The F6 populations from Brookings ranged from 53% to 83% white kernels. Sorting for red seed decreased the frequency of white seed as compared to the unsorted reference populations; however reductions, of white seeds in the red populations, were modest and required three cycles of selection for significant effect. The effectiveness of the image-sorter varied with population and environment and sorting methods.

Abstract  

The concentration levels of total iodine obtained by RNAA in different sorts of tobacco, including the reference sample Kentucky Tobacco 2RI, two new candidate reference materials, Oriental Tobacco Leaves /CTA-OTL-1/ and Virginia Tobacco Leaves /CTA-VTL-2/ prepared in the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, Warsaw, and some biological SRMs, are presented and discussed.

Abstract  

Soil surveys of radon conducted in the Coastal Plain of New Jersey, Alabama and Texas indicate that soil composition and grain size exert the strongest control on the concentration of radon measured. Soil-gas radon was measured in-situ using two techniques; one developed by G. Michael REIMER of the U. S. Geological Survey; the other developed by Rogers and Associates Engineering Corp. for use by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Reimer technique aquires a small-volume, grab sample of soil gas, whereas the Rogers and Associatess technique acquires a large-volume, flow-through sample of soil gas. The two techniques yield similar radon concentrations in well-sorted sands, but do not correlate as well for poorly sorted soils and clays.
