Traces of Mithraism in Slovenia are represented by a large number of Mithraea and finds of altars and stones carved with Mithraic symbols. Some of these have been systematically studied and are quite well-known, others are poorly documented and less known. This difference is largely a consequence of factors from antiquity, such as the social status of the dedicators of the monuments and the choice of the location.
Our contribution focuses on the location of these shrines in north-eastern Slovenia, especially at Drava Plain and Ager of Poetovio, one of the most important Mithraic centres. The questions we explore are: where and in what environment were Mithraea built; what is their relationship to other urban structures, traffic routes, natural resources and topography; and what role do they have in their setting within provincial and city boundaries.
The results of our analysis show the heterogeneity of responses to these questions and, consequently, the vitality of the cult of Mithras in the study area.

The use of the nuclear microprobe has been extended to provide information about surface topography. Measured radiation yield
from particular interaction, is shown to be sensitive to surface shape and the response of both single and dual detector systems
to surface variation have been examined.

We analysed the role of topography, tree stand characteristics and management on the susceptibility of forest stands to abiotic natural disturbances. In 1996, stands of Börzsöny Mts, Hungary were hit by a severe ice storm, then by strong winds three years later. Affected areas were mapped on aerial photos, and we built a GIS database containing variables describing topography and tree stand characteristics. The role of variables in predicting ice break and windfall was investigated by non-parametric statistical tests and by a series of C&RT (Classification and Regression Tree) analyses. Elevation, aspect and slope proved to have strong statistical relationships with the distribution of both ice break and windfall, with misclassification error (MER) of 18% and 15%, respectively, if studied without stand descriptors. Mixing ratio and age of beech were the most important stand descriptors to explain the distribution of ice break (MER=15%), whereas that of windfall was best described by the age and height of the two dominant tree species (MER=11%). The explanatory power could be increased if all variables (topographic + stand descriptors) were considered, though the increase in explanatory power was higher in the case of ice break (MER decreased from 15% to 11%) than for windfall (MER decreased from 11% to 10%). Since management related stand variables (beech mixture ratio, age, height, amount of recently felled stock, slenderness) and susceptibility to disturbance events seemed to be related, our results suggest that the sensitivity of tree stands could be decreased by increasing compositional and structural heterogeneity.
The usual framework of Romanesque studies is the province, such as Burgundy, Tuscany or Bavaria. In Hungary, however, it has no tradition. The usual framework is either a smaller unit (county, megye in Hungarian) or a larger territory: the entire medieval Hungarian Kingdom, i.e. the Carpathian Basin. This paper discusses the historiography of these two traditions starting with the first Hungarian art historian generation (Arnold Ipolyi, Flóris Rómer, Imre Henszlmann) to contemporaneous efforts of the topographical works of historic monuments and collections of medieval churches, mainly compiled by archaeologists on the level of the county. On the other hand, each generation published its own summary of Romanesque art of Hungary. The regional aspect is a new trend, started by the exhibition on Transdanubia in 1994, however, monographic studies are still missing.
Thermal convection has been modeled using a 3D Cartesian model, in order to study the structure of mantle plumes and their surface manifestation. Hotspots can be regarded as the surface manifestation of mantle plumes. The main characteristic features of the hotspots are their volcanism, topographic, geoid and heat flow anomalies. The following characteristics of the hotspot-generator plumes are studied: their geometrical size, temperature distribution, the horizontal extent and maximum amplitude of the surface features: geoid, topographic and heat flow anomalies. The aim of the model calculations is to investigate the effect of depth-dependent viscosity and internal heating in case of scaling the non-dimensional result for upper and whole mantle convection. When upper mantle convection is supposed, the calculated amplitudes of the anomalies fit well to the observed values, but their lateral extent is too small. The extent of the anomalies suggests whole mantle plume. Taking into account the high viscosity of the lithosphere, the low viscosity of the asthenosphere and the D'' layer at the CMB and using internal heating helps to gain better fit to the observations. The most complex whole mantle model predicts quite realistic features, except the topographic height.
Manuális mikrokeratom segítségével végzett elülső lamelláris keratoplasztikával nyert tapasztalatunk ismertetése.
Betegek és módszer:
Pterygiumeltávolítás után visszamaradt centrális, elülső stomalis corneaheg és nagyfokú irreguláris astigmia miatt lamelláris keratoplasztikát végeztünk mikrokeratom segítségével 67 éves férfi betegünk bal szemén. A cornea állapotát videokeratográfiával rögzítettük.
A páciens legjobb korrigált látóélessége, amely műtét előtt +7,0 szferikus és –9,0 cilindrikus dioptriával 0,6 volt, a posztoperatív hatodik hónapra meghaladta a preoperatív értéket. A korrigálatlan visus 0,15-ról 0,6-re javult. A topográfiával mért corneacilinder 7,98 D-ról 3,79 D-ra, a felszíni aszimmetriaindex 2,42-ról 1,48-ra, a felszíni regularitási index 3,24-ról 1,72-ra javult. A minimum keratometry reading (38,35 D) értéke a hatodik hónapra normálértéket (41,69 D) vett fel.
A mikrokeratommal végzett elülső lamelláris keratoplasztika technikailag biztonságosan kivitelezhető, alkalmasnak tűnik szaruhártyahegek feltisztításán kívül nagyfokú, irreguláris astigmia csökkentésére, ezáltal a látóélesség javítására is.
