Once in about twenty years, the cumulative technological progress is altering disruptively the capabilities of communication networks as well as reshapes their overall impact on the progress of our society. Previously, such changes were associated with the emergence of the third-generation (3G) cellular systems in 1999. These technological breakthroughs underpinned the construction of the connected society by providing the users with unprecedented services for transfer of multimedia data.

Soon, in 2019, the completion of fifth-generation (5G) systems and their ratification in standards are expected, while the launch of their large-scale implementations is scheduled for 2020. The emerging 5G technologies are designed to integrate all of the latest developments in mobile and fixed communication networks, offer the data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s, deliver the cloud computing capabilities directly to their users and, most importantly, become the foundation of digital economy.

The forthcoming 5G Summit R&D Russia in Moscow was the first event of its kind in Russia, which was held at the RUDN University on June 19 - 20, 2017. The Summit provided a convenient platform for the industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from both industry and academia to collaborate and share their ideas related to the novel 5G technology that can in turn facilitate its development, standardization, and implementation. At the Summit, particular attention was dedicated to discussing the scientific perspectives on long-term transformations and innovations in the digitalization of megacities, by example of the city of Moscow.

Lecture of Willi Jäger, RUDN University Honoree Doctor, Professor or Applied Analysis Group, IWR and IAM, University of Heidelberg presented to students open lecture

In his speech, Professor Willi Jäger, based on years of experience, gave a number of valuable recommendations, encouraging young people to scientific work.

In particular, the professor suggested creating small groups of students in universities, approximately equal in their abilities. These groups should be focused on a specific issue and conduct research under the guidance of a more experienced leader. Such a technique, according to the author, should reveal the potential of each member of the group, help students show their best qualities, teach teamwork, and a competent mentor can direct their efforts in the right direction.


Another idea of the scientist is a simple formula «simulation, simulation, experiment.» These three steps will help the beginning researcher to move from theoretical research to practical action.

Professor Willi Jäger also noted the importance of students' participation in international studies and scientific events, because the joint work of representatives of different schools and approaches allows each of the participants to look at the studied issue under a new angle for themselves and thereby gain invaluable experience.


Many of the proposals presented at the lecture are already being successfully implemented in Germany.

In light of the stringent requirements in terms of resource and energy efficiency, the performance optimization of such heterogeneous 5G systems becomes an involved task that demands abundant information on the states of users to solve a complex, large-scale optimization problem. However, the unpredictable mobility of communicating entities, including dual mobility of D2D partners, may lead to a rapid deviation from the initial, optimized system state and thus requires frequent re-optimizations of the entire network. In this article, we aim to deliver a comprehensive tutorial on the implications of system-wide energy and resource management with the emphasis on its time-dependent behavior. Proposing a novel network-centric 5G optimization framework, we employ insights from the random walk and Markov chain theories, and also confirm our findings with an extensive system-level simulation campaign. These results reveal an exponential performance degradation rate that primarily depends on the average user speeds. Together with reporting the divergence exponents for different 5G system configurations, we also provide practical insights into how to exploit them in order to non-incrementally improve the throughput and energy performance of the network

The steric and electronic factors that influence which of the two rings of a substituted biphenyl ligand coordinates to chromium are of interest and it has been suggested that haptotropic rearrangements within these molecules may be limited if the arene-arene dihedral angle is too large. Two tricarbonylchromium( 0) complexes and their respective free ligands have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In the solid state, tricarbonyl[(1',2',3',4',5',6'-eta)-2-fluoro-1,1'-biphenyl] chromium(0), [Cr(C12H9F)(CO)(3)], (I), exists as the more stable isomer with the nonhalogenated arene ring ligated to the metal center. Similarly, tricarbonyl[(1',2',3',4',5',6'-eta)-4-fluoro-1,1'-biphenyl] chromium(0) crystallizes as the more stable isomer with the phenyl ring bonded to the Cr-0 center. The arene-arene dihedral angles in these complexes are 55.77 (4) and 52.4 (5)degrees, respectively. Structural features of these complexes are compared to those of the DFT-optimized geometries of ten tricarbonyl[(eta(6)-C6H5)(4-F-C6H4)] chromium model complexes. The solid-state structures of the free ligands 2-fluoro-1,1'-biphenyl and 4-fluoro-1,1'-biphenyl, both C12H9F, exhibit arene-arene dihedral angles of 54.83 (7) and 0.71 (8)degrees, respectively. The molecules of the free ligands occupy crystallographic twofold axes and exhibit positional disorder. Weak intermolecular C-H center dot center dot center dot F interactions are observed in all four structures.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. Environmental contribution to ASD is due in large part to the sensitivity of the developing brain to external exposures such as lead (Pb), and mercury (Hg) as toxic heavy metals or due to a poor detoxification ability as the phenotype of this disorder. Selenium (Se) as an antioxidant element that counteracts the neurotoxicity of Hg, and Pb, presumably through the formation of nontoxic complexes. In the present study, Pb, Hg, and Se were measured in red blood cells (RBCs) of 35 children with ASD and 30 age- and gender-matched healthy control children using atomic absorption spectrometry. Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) analysis of the obtained data was performed to measure the predictive value of their absolute and relative concentrations. The obtained data demonstrates a significant elevation of Hg and Pb together with a significant decrease in the Se levels in RBCs of patients with ASD when compared to the healthy controls. The ratios of Se to both Pb and Hg were remarkably altered, being indicative of heavy metal neurotoxicity in patients with ASD. In conclusion, the present study indicates the importance of Se for prevention and/or therapy of heavy metal neurotoxicity

In this paper we prove discreteness of the spectrum of the Neumann Laplacian (the free membrane problem) in a large class of non-convex space domains. The lower estimates of the first non-trivial Neumann eigenvalue are obtained in terms of geometric characteristics of Sobolev mappings. The suggested approach is based on Sobolev-Poincare inequalities that are obtained with the help of a geometric theory of composition operators on Sobolev spaces. These composition operators are induced by generalizations of conformal mappings that are called as mappings of bounded 2-distortion (weak 2-quasiconformal mappings). (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc.

Isolation of the Chloride Complex of the Four-Mercury Anticrown {[(o,o '-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)]Cl}(-) from the Reaction of o,o '-Dilithiooctafluorobiphenyl with HgCl2 and Its Transformations to the Free Anticrown and the Complexes with o-Xylene Acetonitrile and Acetone, (Q 1) ORGANOMETALLICS., VL 36

The paper reports that the interaction of o,o'-dilithiooctafluorobiphenyl with HgCl2 in ether results in the formation of the lithium chloride complex Li{[(o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)]Cl} (11) of the four-mercury anticrown (o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4) (12) along with the earlier isolated and characterized three-mercury anticrown (o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(3) (2). The complex was identified by the reaction with 12-crown-4 and determination of the structure of the [Li(12-crown-4)(2)]{[(o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)]Cl} (13) formed. According to an X-ray analysis, the chloride anion in 13 is simultaneously coordinated with all four Hg centers of the anticrown, forming with them a pyramidal Hg4Cl fragment. The reaction of 11 (in the form of an acetonitrile solvate, 11.nMeCN) with boiling water leads to removal of LiCl from 11 and to the formation of free anticrown 12, the subsequent recrystallization of which from o-xylene affords the o-xylene complex {[(o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)](o-Me2C6H4)(2)} (14). The obtained 14 forms in the crystal infinite chains consisting of alternating anticrown units and bridging o-xylene moieties. Another o-xylene molecule in each macrocyclic fragment of the chain plays the role of a terminal ligand. In both cases, the o-xylene ligands in 14 are bonded to only one Hg center of the corresponding mercuramacrocycle. The back-conversion of complex 14 into 12 and o-xylene proceeds in the course of its thermal decomposition under vacuum at 100-120 degrees C. The reaction of 12 with acetonitrile yields the nitrile complex {[(o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)](MeCN)(2)} (15), which also forms infinite polymeric chains in the crystal. In each monomeric unit of the chain, the corresponding bridging nitrile is bonded to only one mercury atom of the anticrown moiety, whereas the other nitrile ligand is coordinated with two Hg sites. The synthesis and structure of the complex {[(o,o'-C6F4C6F4Hg)(4)](Me2CO)(2)(H2O)} (16), containing two acetone and one water ligand per molecule of 12, are also reported. Each acetone molecule in 16 interacts with only one Hg atom of 12, while the water molecule is coordinated with two mercury centers and, in addition, forms H-bonds with the oxygen atoms of the acetone species

Quantum theory of measurements is an extremely important part of quantum mechanics. Currently perturbations by quantum measurements of observable quantities of atomic systems are rarely taken into account in computing algorithms and calculations. In the previous studies of the authors, constructive model of quantum measurements has been developed and implemented in the form of symbolic and numerical calculations for the hydrogen-like atoms. This work describes a generalization of these results to the alkali metal atoms

Rhizodeposits act as major carbon (C) source for microbial communities and rhizosphere-driven effects on forest C cycling receive increasing attention for maintaining soil biodiversity and ecosystem functions. By in situ (CO2)-C-13 pulse labeling we investigated C input and microbial utilization of rhizodeposits by analyzing C-13 incorporation into phospholipid fatty acids (PLFA) of beech- (Fagus sylvatica) and ash associated (Fraxinus excelsior) rhizomicrobial communities. Plant compartments and soil samples were analyzed to quantify the allocation of assimilates. For 1 m high trees, ash assimilated more of the applied (CO2)-C-13 (31%) than beech (21%), and ash allocated twice as much C-13 belowground until day 20. Approximately 0.01% of the applied C-13 was incorporated into total PLFAs, but incorporation varied significantly between microbial groups. Saprotrophic and ectomycorrhizal fungi under beech and ash, but also arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and Gram negative bacteria under ash, incorporated most C-13. PLFA allowed differentiation of C fluxes from tree roots into mycorrhiza: twice as much 13C was incorporated into the fungal biomarker 18:2 omega 6,9 under beech than under ash. Within 5 days, 30% of the fungal PLFA-C was replaced by rhizodeposit-derived C-13 under beech but only 10% under ash. None of the other microbial groups reached such high C replacement, suggesting direct C allocation via ectomycorrhizal symbioses dominates the C flux under beech. Based on (CO2)-C-13 labeling and 13C tracing in PLFA we conclude that ash allocated more C belowground and has faster microbial biomass turnover in the rhizosphere compared to beech.

The crystal structure of (2Z)-(3,3-dimethyl-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-1(2H)-ylidene)nitrosoaceto-nitrile is determined (T = 150 K, R1 = 0.0435). The compound crystallizes as the E-cis and Z-cis isomers of the nitroso tautomer. Two independent molecules differ in the rotation of the nitroso group about the C-C bond between the dihydroisoquinoline group and the substituent. Analysis of bond lengths reveals their conjugation and prevailing contribution of the zwitter-ionic structures with the positive charge located on the isoquinoline fragment and the negative charge located on the substituent. Molecules having E and Z conformations are connected by the N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond (N center dot center dot center dot O 2.922(3) angstrom) into dimers. The N-H group of the other molecule forms the intramolecular N-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bond (N center dot center dot center dot O 2.544(3) angstrom) which closes a six-membered cycle. Electronic absorption spectra are studied, and quantum-chemical modeling of the compound is performed

It is well known that if f is an operator Lipschitz function analytic in D, then f(T) - f(R) is an element of S-1, The main result of the note says that there exists a function xi (a spectral shift function) on the unit circle T of class L-1(T) such that the following trace formula holds: trace(f(T) - f(R)) = integral(T)f '(zeta) xi (zeta) d zeta,whenever T and Rare contractions with T - R is an element of S-1, and fis an operator Lipschitz function analytic in D.

The iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) include a variety of disturbances such as decreased fertility, increased perinatal and infant mortality, impaired physical and intellectual development, mental retardation, cretinism, hypothyroidism, and endemic goiter (EG). The occurrence of the latter is determined by interplay between genetic and environmental factors. The major environmental factor is iodine status that is required for normal thyroid hormone synthesis. However, other factors like intake of micronutrients and goiterogens also have a significant impact. Essential and toxic trace elements both play a significant role in thyroid physiology. We hypothesize that in terms of overexposure boron may serve as a potential goiterogen. In particular, it is proposed that boron overload may impair thyroid physiology ultimately leading to goiter formation. Certain studies provide evidential support of the hypothesis. In particular, it has been demonstrated that serum and urinary B levels are characterized by a negative association with thyroid hormone levels in exposed subjects. Single indications on the potential efficiency of B in hypothyroidism also exist. Moreover, the levels of B were found to be interrelated with thyroid volume in children environmentally exposed to boron. Experimental studies also demonstrated a significant impact of boron on thyroid structure and hormone levels. Finally, the high rate of B cumulation in thyroid may also indicate that thyroid is the target for B activity. Chemical properties of iodine and boron also provide a background for certain competition. However, it is questionable whether these interactions may occur in the biological systems. Further clinical and experimental studies are required to support the hypothesis of the involvement of boron overexposure in goiter formation. If such association will be confirmed and the potential mechanisms elucidated, it will help to regulate the incidence of hypothyroidism and goiter in endemic regions with high boron levels in soil and water.

The preparation and the spray deposition of these solutions are performed in air, allowing a quick, easy and inexpensive process. Upon selenisation, large crystals are observed which are identified as the CZTSe kesterite phase using X-ray diffraction and Raman, the latter showing no distinctive signs of any binary or ternary secondary phases. Using this method, CZTSe absorber layers have been prepared for use in thin-film solar cells reaching efficiency of 3.2%.

A relatively small number of broad-scale patterns describe the distribution of biodiversity across the earth. All of them explore biodiversity focusing on a mono or bi-dimensional space. Conversely, the volume of the forests is rarely considered. In the present work, we tested a global correlation between vascular plant species richness (S) and average forest canopy height (H), the latter regarded as a proxy of volume, using the NASA product of Global Forest Canopy Height map and the global map of plant species diversity. We found a significant correlation between H and S both at global and macro-climate scales, with strongest confidence in the tropics. Hence, two different regression models were compared and discussed to provide a possible pattern of the H-S relation. We suggested that the volume of forest ecosystems should be considered in ecological studies as well as in planning and managing natural sites, although in this first attempt, we cannot definitively prove our hypothesis. Again, high-resolution spatial data could be highly important to confirm the H-S relation, even at different scales

Three metallamacrocycles and one coordination polymer were obtained by using coordination driven self-assembly of the HgI2 salt with four different ligands: 2,2'-butan-1,4-diylbis(oxy) dianiline (L1), 1,4-bis(2'-formylphenyl)-1,4-dioxabutane bis(isonicotinoylhydrazone) (L2), (E)-N'-(pyridin-3-ylmethylene)-isonicotinohydrazide (L3) and (E)-1-(pyridin-3-yl)-N-(pyridin-3-ylmethyl)methanimine (L4). The coordination compounds were studied by elemental analysis, FT-IR spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. Reaction of the HgI2 salt with L1, L2 and L3 yields metallamacrocycles of formula [(HgI2)(2)(mu-L1)(2)] (1), [(HgI2)(2)(mu-L2)(2)] (2), [HgI2(mu-L3)](4) (3). In contrast, the reaction with L4 under the same conditions yields a coordination polymer of formula [{HgI2(L4)}](n) (4). In addition, the X-ray structure of L2 is also reported. The influence of the flexibility of the ligand on the final shape and nuclearity of the macrocycle is also analysed. Hirshfeld surface analysis and fingerprint plots facilitate a comparison of intermolecular interactions in all compounds, which are crucial in the construction of the supramolecular architectures. Finally, some noncovalent interactions have been evaluated energetically using DFT calculations and characterized using Bader's theory of atoms-in-molecules

This equivalence (called k-R duality) holds for static configurations with various symmetries (spherical, plane, cylindrical, etc.) and all homogeneous cosmologies. In the presence of matter, Rastall's theory requires additional assumptions on how the stress-energy tensor non-conservation is distributed between different contributions. Two versions of such non-conservation are considered in the case of isotropic spatially flat cosmological models with a perfect fluid: one (R1) in which there is no coupling between the scalar field and the fluid, and another (R2) in which the fluid separately obeys the usual conservation law. In version R1 it is shown that k-R duality holds not only for the cosmological models themselves but also for their adiabatic perturbations. In version R2, among other results, a particular model is singled out that reproduces the same cosmological expansion history as the standard Lambda CDM model but predicts different behaviors of small fluctuations in the k-essence and Rastall frameworks ., VL 77.,

Reaction of cadmium acetate hydrate with sodium 2-[2-(4,4-dimethyl-2,6-dioxocyclohexylidene)hydrazinyl]terephthalate (Na2HL), in the presence of imidazole (im), leads to the polymeric species [Cd (im)(3)(mu, eta-HL-1 kappa OO ':2 kappa O '' O '''](n) that is characterized by IR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis.

The diastereoselectivity of azido-Ugi reaction with cyclic amines was investigated. It was found that the reaction with alpha-substituted five- to seven-membered cyclic amines proceeds very efficiently to provide high control of diastereoselectivity (<= 100% de) under mild conditions. Target tetrazole-derived products were isolated in excellent yields (<= 98%). The reaction has a broad scope in terms of its amine, aldehyde, and isocyanide nature. It was found that the diastereoselectivity of the reaction depends on the ring size of the starting cyclic amines. More rigid piperidines provided the highest selectivity of the reaction. Using benzyl isocyanide, the prepared N-benzyl tetrazoles can be deprotected by hydrogenolysis to form the corresponding NH tetrazoles in high yields

We consider a D-dimensional gravitational model with a Gauss-Bonnet term and the cosmological term Lambda. We restrict the metrics to diagonal cosmological ones and find for certain Lambda a class of solutions with exponential time dependence of three scale factors, governed by three non-coinciding Hubble-like parameters H > 0, h(1) and h(2), corresponding to factor spaces of dimensions m > 2, k(1) > 1 and k(2) > 1, respectively, with k(1) not equal k2 and D = 1 + m + k(1) + k(2). Any of these solutions describes an exponential expansion of 3d subspace with Hubble parameter H and zero variation of the effective gravitational constant G. We prove the stability of these solutions in a class of cosmological solutions with diagonal metrics

The article focuses on the flyby issue involving large-size space debris (LSSD) objects in low Earth orbits. The data on overall sizes of the known upper-stages and last stages of launch-vehicles make it possible to emphasize five compact groups of such objects from the Satellite catalogue in 600-2000 km altitude interval. The flyby maneuvers are executed by a single space vehicle (SV) that transfers the current captured LSSD object to the specially selected circular or elliptical disposal orbit (DO) and after a period of time returns to capture a new one. The flight is always realized when a value of the Right Ascension of the Ascending Node (RAAN) is approximately the same for the current DO and for an orbit of the following LSSD object ., Distinctive features of changes in mutual distribution of orbital planes of LSSD within a group are shown on the RAAN deviations' evolution portrait. In case of the first three groups (inclinations 71 degrees, 74 degrees and 81 degrees), the lines describing the relative orientation of orbital planes are quasi-parallel. Such configuration allows easy identification of the flyby order within a group, and calculation of the mission duration and the required total Delta V. In case of the 4th and the 5th groups the RAAN deviations' evolution portrait represents a conjunction of lines chaotically intersecting. The article studies changes in mission duration and in the required Delta V depending on the catalogue number of the first object in the flyby order ., The article also contains a comparative efficiency analysis of the two world-wide known schemes applicable to LSSD objects' de-orbiting; the analysis is carried out for all 5 distinguished LSSD groups.

A novel series of Hg-II coordination polymers with a general formula [HgL(N)(3)](n)center dot n(solv) (HL = 2-pyridinecarbaldehyde isonicotinoylhydrazone; n(solv) = 0.5H(2)O (1), 2MeOH (2), EtOH (3), PrOH (4) and 0.5BuOH (5)) was prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The crystal structure of HL, elucidated by X-ray diffraction, comprises two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit cell, each of which is stabilized by an intramolecular hydrogen bond formed between the carbohydrazide hydrogen atom and the 2-pyridyl nitrogen atom. Crystal structures of 1-5 each reveal a similar 1D zigzag metal-organic chain [HgL(N)(3)] n, where the organic ligands bridge metal centers. These chains are extended into distinct 2D supramolecular nets by strong hydrogen bonds with the solvent molecules and/or short Hg center dot center dot center dot N supramolecular contacts. These networks were topologically classified as the hcb in 1 and fes in 2-5 underlying nets. On comparing the H-bonding patterns, it can be concluded that the lattice water molecules in 1 and methanol molecules in 2 form H-bonding interactions with the O and amide N atoms of L in the former structure and the O atom of L in the latter structure. In the remaining coordination compounds, the lattice solvent prefers the azide N atom for H-bonding. Furthermore, the existence of Hg center dot center dot center dot N interactions in 2-5 and their absence in 1 clearly highlights the importance of the size and polarity of the solvents on the self-assembly generation of Hg-II coordination polymers. A broad network of intermolecular pi center dot center dot center dot pi stacking interactions, formed between the pyridyl fragments, provide further reinforcement of crystal packing patterns in the structures of HL and 2-5. DFT based charge and energy decomposition scheme (ETS-NOCV) was applied to characterize the obtained polymers

We investigate the quantum dynamics of two interacting bosonic atoms confined in a one-dimensional anharmonic trap. The tunneling rate, an experimentally measurable parameter of the system, is calculated as a function of the effective coupling interatomic constant g from the ground (n = N = 0) and first excited atomic states in the trap with respect to relative (n = 2, N = 0) and center-of-mass (n = 0, N = 2) atomic motion. This allows us to investigate the initial population and pair correlation, as well as the effective coupling constant g, of the system by comparing the calculated tunneling rate with the experimental one. We observe that the only possible tunneling scenario is a sequential particle tunneling in the cases we consider. We also analyze a rearrangement (0,2) reversible arrow (2,0) of the spectrum in the limit g ->+/- 0 of noninteracting atoms

The aim of this research was to study the association between the gut microbiota composition and arterial wall properties. The study included 92 participants, men and women aged 25-76 years old without clinical manifestation of chronic diseases but with the possible presence of cardiovascular risk factors. Carbohydrate metabolism examination, duplex scanning of the carotid arteries with the measurement of the intima-media thickness (IMT), the carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV) measurement, and 16S rRNA (V3-V4 regions) sequencing of the gut microbiota were performed in all participants. Higher Serratia abundance was associated with the increased IMT and CRP levels. Blautia representation was associated with IMT. Higher Bacteroides representation was associated with higher pulse wave velocity in non-diabetic subjects. Although this study had some limitations, we have demonstrated that the composition of the gut microbiota was associated both with atherosclerotic and arterial stiffness markers.

AB This article analyzes gender inequality in Russia's rural informal economy. Continuation of unequal gendered roles in Russia's rural informal economy suggests that tradition and custom remain strong. Gender differentials in time spent tending the household garden remain significant, as is the distribution of household tasks into gendered roles in ways that effect professional advancement for women. Land ownership is the domain of men, and women are not owners in Russia's new economy. Moreover, men earn more from entrepreneurial activity, a function of how male and female services are valued and priced in society. Responsibility that is shared includes the marketing of household food. The conclusion is that institutional change is less impactful on gender inequality than persistence of culture and tradition.

 AB The article presents the author's approach to developing a methodology for assessing the quality of healthcare services based on integration of econometric and socio-economic methods. Following the presentation of the materials in the article, the following key conclusions have been obtained:., High quality of consumer healthcare services is not just a socially important parameter, but also an economically important one, describing the capabilities of healthcare facilities (healthcare organizations) to offer consumers (patients) technologically efficient and timely services that are in-demand on the market;., There are several sets of methodological concepts of assessing the quality of healthcare services in the current scientific literature, which can be classified into two main groups: methods based on subjective approach and methods involving an objective assessment of the quality of healthcare services. Methods using the subjective approach imply assessment of the quality of services through customer satisfaction, which does not always give relevant and reliable information about the state of the quality characteristics of healthcare services;., It is offered to integrate methods using objective approaches to assessing the quality of healthcare services into the unified methodological concept, which implies assessment of the quality of these services on the basis of the exponent multiplicative model. The article proposes a detailed formula toolkit to calculate indicators that form the proposed methodological model for assessment of the quality of healthcare services;., It is substantiated that objective and subjective assessments do not always match in defining the actual level of quality characteristics of healthcare services. Due to this, the paper describes the key areas that can simultaneously provide growth of the value added in the service and growth of the customer value of such services

AB A mild and versatile protocol for the C-H acylation of indoles via dual photoredox/transition-metal catalysis was established in batch and flow. The C-H bond functionalization occurred selectively at the C-2 position of N-pyrimidylindoles. This room-temperature protocol tolerated a wide range of functional groups and allowed for the synthesis of a diverse set of acylated indoles. Various aromatic as well as aliphatic aldehydes (both primary and secondary) reacted successfully. Interestingly, significant acceleration (20 to 2 h) and higher yields were obtained under micro flow conditions

Modified beta-cyclodextrins are widely used for the enhancement of microbial conversions of lipophilic compounds such as steroids. Multiple mechanisms of cyclodextrin-mediated enhancement of phytosterol bioconversion by mycobacteria had previously been shown to include steroid solubilization, alterations in the cell wall permeability for both steroids and nutrients, facilitation of protein leaking, and activity suppression of some steroid-transforming enzymes.In this work, we studied whether cyclodextrins might affect expression of the genes involved in the steroid catabolic pathway. Phytosterol bioconversion with 9 alpha-hydroxy-androst-4-ene-3,17-dione accumulation by Mycobacterium sp. VKM Ac-1817D in the presence of methylated beta-cyclodextrin (MCD) was investigated. RNA sequencing of the whole transcriptomes in different combinations of phytosterol and MCD showed a similar expression level of the steroid catabolism genes related to the KstR-regulon and was responsible for side chain and initial steps of steroid core oxidation; whereas, induction levels of the genes related to the KstR2-regulon were attenuated in the presence of MCD in this strain. The data were attenuated with quantitative real-time PCR.The results contribute to the understanding of cyclodextrin effects on microbial steroid conversion and provide a basis for the use of cyclodextrins as expression enhancers for studies of sterol catabolism in actinobacteria

One of the main characteristics of blood coagulation is the speed of clot growth. In the current work we consider a mathematical model of the coagulation cascade and study existence, stability and speed of propagation of the reaction-diffusion waves of blood coagulation. We also develop a simplified one equation model that reflects the main features of the thrombin wave propagation. For this equation we estimate the wave speed analytically. The resulting formulas provide a good approximation for the speed of wave propagation in a more complex model as well as for the experimental data

Metal complexes bearing N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands are typically considered the system of choice for homogeneous catalysis with well-defined molecular active species due to their stable metal ligand framework. A detailed study involving 19 different Pd-NHC complexes with imidazolium, benzimidazolium, and triazolium ligands has been carried out in the present work and revealed a new mode of operation of metal-NHC systems. The catalytic activity of the studied Pd-NHC systems is predominantly determined by the cleavage of the metal NHC bond, while the catalyst performance is strongly affected by the stabilization of in situ formed metal clusters. In the present study, the formation of Pd nanopartides was observed from a broad range of metal complexes with NHC ligands under standard Mizoroki-Heck reaction conditions. A mechanistic analysis revealed two different pathways to connect Pd-NHC complexes to "cocktail"-type catalysis: (i) reductive elimination from a Pd(II) intermediate and the release of NHC-containing byproducts and (ii) dissociation of NHC ligands from Pd intermediates. Metal-NHC systems are ubiquitously applied in modern organic synthesis and catalysis, while the new mode of operation revealed in the present study guides catalyst design and opens a variety of novel opportunities. As shown by experimental studies and theoretical calculations, metal dusters and nanopartides can be readily formed from M-NHC complexes after formation of new M-C or M-H bonds followed by C-NHC or H-NHC coupling. Thus, a combination of a classical molecular mode of operation and a novel cocktail-type mode of operation, described in the present study, may be anticipated as an intrinsic feature of M-NHC catalytic systems

This paper is concerned with an experiment that was intended to compare the respective accuracies of local GNSS monitoring using observations by GPS and GLONASS satellites at different elevations above the horizon. We used data from continuous daily observation sessions in a local network during 3 months in the "static" mode. An analysis of parameters that characterize the accuracy and efficiency of displacement determinations showed that the combined GPS + GLONASS data processing has the highest accuracy at elevation angles greater than 15 degrees. It is shown that the accuracy of GLONASS observations is not considerably worse than that of GPS. We note that the time-dependent variation of GLONASS observation is large

An energy-dispersion scheme for determining the con.entrations of impurities of heavy elements from the absorption spectra in the regions of X-ray photoabsorption jumps is described. A semiconductor X-ray spectrometer and a pyrolytic graphite monochromator were used to record data in a spectral band of width up to 1 keV. The initial shape of the absorption spectrum in the approximation of an isolated atom was reconstructed by means of a numerical solution of the convolution equation. The scheme provides a sharp increase in the data acquisition and measurement sensitivity. The results of measurements of the Bi and Pb contents in samples with organic matrices and determination of the thicknesses of thin Mo films on diamond substrates are presented

35.  Bezrodnykh, S. I., Finding the coefficients in the new representation of the solution of., the Riemann-Hilbert problem using the Lauricella function, ( Q 2) MATHEMATICAL NOTES., VL 101

The solution of the Riemann-Hilbert problem for an analytic function in a canonical domain for the case in which the data of the problem is piecewise constant can be expressed as a Christoffel-Schwartz integral. In this paper, we present an explicit expression for the parameters of this integral obtained by using a Jacobi-type formula for the Lauricella generalized hypergeometric function F (D) N[+] . The results can be applied to a number of problems, including those in plasma physics and the mechanics of deformed solids

36.  Gel'man, B. D., A hybrid fixed-point theorem for set-valued maps, ( Q 2) MATHEMATICAL NOTES., VL 101

AB In 1955, M. A. Krasnosel'skii proved a fixed-point theorem for a single-valued map which is a completely continuous contraction (a hybrid theorem). Subsequently, his work was continued in various directions. In particular, it has stimulated the development of the theory of condensing maps (both single-valued and set-valued); the images of such maps are always compact. Various versions of hybrid theorems for set-valued maps with noncompact images have also been proved. The set-valued contraction in these versions was assumed to have closed images and the completely continuous perturbation, to be lower semicontinuous (in a certain sense). In this paper, a new hybrid fixed-point theorem is proved for any set-valued map which is the sum of a set-valued contraction and a compact set-valued map in the case where the compact set-valued perturbation is upper semicontinuous and pseudoacyclic. In conclusion, this hybrid theorem is used to study the solvability of operator inclusions for a new class of operators containing all surjective operators. The obtained result is applied to solve the solvability problem for a certain class of control systems determined by a singular differential equation with feedback

It is shown that the limitation of transverse sizes of waveguides leads to significant variations in the temperature characteristics due to field concentration in the sol-gel material of the waveguide, which depends on the type of the channel waveguide and its parameters (geometrical sizes and refractive index of the sol-gel material). Recommendations on the selection of the type of waveguide and its parameters for specific applications in multiplexers, switches, optical cavities, etc. are presented

The properties of spaces equipped with a topology defined by a distance function are studied. The considered distance function is not necessarily symmetric but satisfies the so-called f-triangle inequality, which is a weakened version of the usual triangle inequality. Sufficient conditions for metrizability of such spaces are proposed. A construction of a quasimetric topologically equivalent to a given f-quasimetric is proposed.

On April 19, 2016, in The Case Concerning the Resolution of the Question of the Possibility to Execute in Accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation the Judgment of the European Court of Human Rights of 4 July 2013 in the Case of Anchugov and Gladkov v. Russia in Connection with the Request of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation (Anchugov & Gladkov (Russ.)), the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation (Constitutional Court) held that decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) are binding on Russian courts, in accordance with Article 15(4) of the 1993 Constitution of the Russian Federation.(1) At the same time, the Constitutional Court stressed the necessity of ensuring a reasonable balance between the obligation to implement ECtHR judgments and respect for the fundamental principles of the Russian Federation's constitutional system. The Constitutional Court found that because the ECtHR judgment in question implicitly conflicted with provisions of the Russian Constitution, Russian courts are not obliged to comply with the judgment regarding issues that remain in conflict; however, other means are available to the Russian legislature to give effect to the judgment. While the decision marks an important development in Russia's relationship with the European system of human rights, it is not inconsistent with the approach taken by a substantial number of European domestic courts in holding that treaty obligations to enforce decisions of international courts cannot justify violating domestic constitutional norms

Purpose: The scope of the paper was the assessment of the contamination (or monitoring) of poultry meat and semi-finished products with Campylobacter ("from the retail network and farms" may be added), using the culture identification technique and the polymerase chain reaction method, as well as the evaluation of the antibiotic resistance of strains isolated from poultry meat and semi-finished products. Materials and Methods: The experimental part of the work was carried out on the basis of the Institute of Veterinary and Sanitary Expertise, Biological and Food Safety of the Moscow State Institute of Food Production and the Federal Publicly Funded Institution of Science "FIC of Nutrition and Biotechnology" at the Nutriicrobiome Biosafety and Analysis Laboratory. The GOST ISO 10272-1-2013" microbiology of food and animal feeds. Methods for the detection and counting of Campylobacter spp., Part 1. Detection method" was used in the work performed to isolate and identify the Campylobacter spp., Pure growths were identified per totality of cultural, morphological, and biochemical signs confirming the belonging of the isolated cultures to the bacteria of the Campylobacter genus. The belonging of Campylobacter spp., isolated cultures was also determined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with electrophoretic detection of amplification products in an agarose gel. The sensitivity to antibiotics was determined according to the clinical guidelines "determination of the sensitivity of microorganisms to antimicrobial agents" (IACMAC, 2014) by disc diffusion method using standard discs. Results: It was established that out of the 28 samples of poultry meat and semi-finished products, Campylobacter bacteria were found in 4 samples of the half-finished product "drumette" in the weights of 10 and 1.0 g. Conclusions: The results of the PCR analysis confirmed the belonging of the isolated cultures to Campylobacter Jejuni species. In turn, the PCR is a faster method than the culture technique and allows giving a definitive answer within a few hours

We describe mechanisms of microwave pulse shortening in radiation sources with the power of about 10(8)W based on interaction between relativistic electron beams of nanosecond duration and preformed plasma. The shortening is mainly due to the electron return flow through the plasma, which leads to a multiple decrease in the linear gain of the microwave by the relativistic electron beam and in the reflection coefficient of the plasma wave that provides the generator feedback. The ways to eliminate the effect of microwave pulse shortening are proposed

The boundary conditions involve fractional power alpha, 0 < alpha < 1, of the Steklov spectral operator arising in Dirichlet to Neumann map. For such problems we discuss two different numerical methods: (1) a computational algorithm based on an approximation of the integral representation of the fractional power of the operator and (2) numerical technique involving an auxiliary Cauchy problem for an ultra-parabolic equation and its subsequent approximation by a time stepping technique. For both methods we present numerical experiment for a model two-dimensional problem that demonstrate the accuracy, efficiency, and stability of the algorithms

The Appell function F (1) (i.e., a generalized hypergeometric function of two complex variables) and a corresponding system of partial differential equations are considered in the logarithmic case when the parameters of F (1) are related in a special way. Formulas for the analytic continuation of F (1) beyond the unit bicircle are constructed in which F (1) is determined by a double hypergeometric series. For the indicated system of equations, a collection of canonical solutions are presented that are two-dimensional analogues of Kummer solutions well known in the theory of the classical Gauss hypergeometric equation. In the logarithmic case, the canonical solutions are written as generalized hypergeometric series of new form. The continuation formulas are derived using representations of F (1) in the form of Barnes contour integrals. The resulting formulas make it possible to efficiently calculate the Appell function in the entire range of its variables. The results of this work find a number of applications, including the problem of parameters of the Schwarz-Christoffel integral

We show that in each order of 1/R, corrections to the wave functions are expressed in terms of a finite number of Coulomb functions with a modified charge. We derive simple analytic expressions for the first, second, and third corrections. We develop a consistent scheme for obtaining WKB expansions for solutions of the quasiangular equation in the quantum mechanical two-Coulomb-center problem. In the framework of this scheme, we construct semiclassical two-center wave functions for large distances between fixed positively charged particles (nuclei) for the entire space of motion of a negatively charged particle (electron). The method ensures simple uniform estimates for eigenfunctions at arbitrary large internuclear distances R, including R >> 1. In contrast to perturbation theory, the semiclassical approximation is not related to the smallness of the interaction and hence has a wider applicability domain, which permits investigating qualitative laws for the behavior and properties of quantum mechanical system
