In 1975, a symposium was once held in Midland, Michigan, co-sponsored via the Dow Chemical corporation and the then Midland Macromolecular Institute in honor of Raymond F. Boyer at the get together of his sixty fifth birthday and retirement from Dow. the subject of that first Boyer symposium handled a space of curiosity to Boyer, particularly, polymer transitions and relaxations. One decade later, after ten years of extra fruitful medical pastime at MMI, Ray Boyer used to be back venerated with a symposium, this time celebrating his seventy fifth birthday and tenth anniversary on the Michigan Molecular Institute. the subject of the second one Boyer symposium in 1985 was once just a little extra concentrated, this time targeting the topic of order (or constitution) within the amorphous kingdom of polymers and the attendant polymer transitions which are saw. This quantity includes the entire manuscripts of the members to the seventeenth MMI overseas Symposium, held in Midland, Michigan on August 18-21, 1985. 11 one-hour plenary lectures and ten 20-minute contributed papers have been offered throughout the Symposium. An open discussion board panel dialogue was once additionally scheduled; the edited transcript of that consultation is integrated on the finish of this quantity. one among our projects in organizing this Symposium used to be to aim to collect jointly a few audio system who will be capable of outline what, if any, actual constitution could be found in anwrplwus polymers and what the character of this order may perhaps be.

Effects of Mass Loss on Stellar Evolution: IAU Colloquium no. 59 Held in Miramare, Trieste, Italy, September 15–19, 1980

The IAU Colloquium No. fifty nine, "The results of mass loss on Stellar Evolution" was once hung on September 15-19, 1980 on the foreign Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste (Italy), below the auspices of the IAU govt Co~ mittee and the Italian nationwide Council of analysis. The making plans of this convention started years in the past du­ ring the IAU Symposium No.

Cerebral Cortex: Neurodegenerative and Age-Related Changes in Structure and Function of Cerebral Cortex

This quantity of Cerebral Cortex is devoted to Sir John Eccles, who used to be an energetic member of the advisory board for the sequence until eventually his demise in may perhaps 1997. His enter as to what subject matters will be lined in destiny volumes of this sequence might be sorely neglected. the current quantity is worried with neurodegenerative problems and age­ comparable adjustments within the constitution and serve as of the cerebral cortex, an issue that has attracted expanding curiosity as durability and the variety of elderly members within the inhabitants bring up.

Alcoholism and Drug Dependence: A Multidisciplinary Approach

It really is for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to put in writing a short foreword to those court cases of the 3rd foreign convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. through the week specialists, from across the world, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed fresh advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early reputation, administration, and the social and business implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene.

035 nmlCH and less intense. From this one might infer that the pendant v 40 groups are less extended and the packing less "regular" in this series. For comparison, Fig. 8 contains also the scattering pattern of poly(cyclohexyl-4-phenyl methacrylate). 7 nm larger than the phenyl or cyclohexyl polymer alone) and has a markedly greater intensity than the others in Fig. 8. (3) Alkyloxy(or thio)ethylene methacrylate polymers, R = -C2H4-0-C nH2n+l (1 ::;; n::;; 2) and the thio analogs: scattering patterns for these four polymers are shown in Figure 9 and the peak positions are listed in Table I.

Successive curves have been shifted vertically one division for clarity. Intensity scale (per division) 400 counts/s except for curve 20 (200 counts/s). From ref. 25. 43 Table I). There is a strong effect on both the VOW and the LVOW peaks from both the substitution of this bulky group and the position of substitution. 45 nm in the para-substituted polymer. Noticeable also is a narrowing of both peaks in the para-substituted polymer indicative of a narrowing of the distribution of interatomic distances (more regular structure).
