  • Wilson, Nic (Springer, 2006-06)
    Representing and reasoning with an agent's preferences is important in many applications of constraints formalisms. Such preferences are often only partially ordered. One class of soft constraints formalisms, semiring-based ...
  • Venables, Dean S.; Gherman, Titus; Orphal, Johannes; Wenger, John C.; Ruth, Albert A. (American Chemical Society, 2006-11)
    We describe the application of incoherent broadband cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy (IBBCEAS) for the in situ detection of atmospheric trace gases and radicals (NO3, NO2, O-3, H2O) in an atmospheric simulation ...
