TL;DR: In this paper, the frequency and amplification rates for a disturbance growing with respect to time are compared with those of a spatially growing wave having the same wave number, and it is shown that the frequencies are equal to a high order of approximation.
Abstract: The frequency and amplification rates for a disturbance growing with respect to time are compared with those of a spatially-growing wave having the same wave-number. For small rates of amplification it is shown that the frequencies are equal to a high order of approximation, and that the spatial growth is related to the time growth by the group velocity.

TL;DR: The authors investigated the effect of different devices on the performance of index languages and found that the most important consideration was the specificity of the index terms; within the context of the conditions existing in this test, singleword terms were more effective than concept terms or a controlled vocabulary.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors describe observations carried out by the MOA group of the Galactic bulge during 2000 that were designed to detect efficiently gravitational microlensing of faint stars in which the magnification is high and/or of short duration.
Abstract: We describe observations carried out by the MOA group of the Galactic bulge during 2000 that were designed to detect efficiently gravitational microlensing of faint stars in which the magnification is high and/or of short duration. These events are particularly useful for studies of extrasolar planets and faint stars. Approximately 17 deg2 were monitored at a sampling rate of up to six times per night. The images were analysed in real time using a difference imaging technique. 20 microlensing candidates were detected, of which eight were alerted to the microlensing community whilst in progress. Approximately half of the candidates had high magnifications (≳10), at least one had very high magnification (≳50), and one exhibited a clear parallax effect. The details of these events are reported here, together with details of the on-line difference imaging technique. Some nova-like events were also observed and these are described, together with one asteroid.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors provide answers to a number of critical questions: What are the key drivers of each type of airline's business model? Is there a difference in passengers' perceptions between low-cost carriers and full-service incumbents in a mature European market and in a rapidly developing Asian economy?What are the principle reasons why a passenger chooses a particular airline model?
Abstract: Direct competition between full service airlines and no-frills carriers is intensifying across the world. US and European full service airlines have lost a significant proportion of their passengers to low cost carriers, the experience now being repeated in the domestic markets of Asia. This paper attempts to provide answers to a number of critical questions: What are the key drivers of each type of airline's business model? Is there a difference in passengers’ perceptions between low cost carriers and full service incumbents in a mature European market and in a rapidly developing Asian economy? What are the principle reasons why a passenger chooses a particular airline model? How could a legacy carrier encourage passengers to return and so regain their domestic market share? These questions are addressed using information obtained in passenger surveys that were recently conducted in Europe and Asia.

TL;DR: Two planets with masses that could not have been detected with other techniques are identified; their discovery from only six confirmed microlensing planet detections suggests that solar system analogs may be common.
Abstract: Searches for extrasolar planets have uncovered an astonishing diversity of planetary systems, yet the frequency of solar system analogs remains unknown. The gravitational microlensing planet search method is potentially sensitive to multiple-planet systems containing analogs of all the solar system planets except Mercury. We report the detection of a multiple-planet system with microlensing. We identify two planets with masses of ∼0.71 and ∼0.27 times the mass of Jupiter and orbital separations of ∼2.3 and ∼4.6 astronomical units orbiting a primary star of mass ∼0.50 solar mass at a distance of ∼1.5 kiloparsecs. This system resembles a scaled version of our solar system in that the mass ratio, separation ratio, and equilibrium temperatures of the planets are similar to those of Jupiter and Saturn. These planets could not have been detected with other techniques; their discovery from only six confirmed microlensing planet detections suggests that solar system analogs may be common.
