By Jeffrey James, Haider A. Khan (auth.)

This publication explores the inspiration of a technological method and extra in particular the excellence among glossy and conventional technological platforms. utilizing hugely disaggregated facts for a number of sectors and constructing international locations we now have utilized this contrast to micro - in addition to macro-economic coverage concerns. by means of picking detailed platforms of know-how in a multisectoral version of the financial system now we have been in a position to quantify definite points of these platforms inside a rigorous conceptual framework. the connection among source of revenue distribution, the alternative of expertise and its next effect is tested in detail.

Dynamic force spectroscopy and biomolecular recognition

''Molecular reputation or biorecognition is the guts of all organic interactions. Originating from protein stretching experiments, dynamical strength spectroscopy enables the extraction of distinct info at the unbinding strategy of biomolecular complexes. it truly is changing into a growing number of vital in biochemical reviews and is discovering wider functions in parts similar to biophysics and polymer technological know-how.

Economic Analyses of the European Patent System

The eu Patent process is dealing with significant demanding situations as a result of an extension of patentable subject material resulting in increasingly more patent purposes. the ecu Patent workplace has spoke back with admirable flexibility, yet carrying on with technological switch and bigger significance ascribed to patents are resulting in lengthened exam sessions, emerging competition figures and altering behaviour of patent candidates.

8 100 Source: Report of the Fact Finding Committee, 1942. since the proportion of cost above the raw material cost is proportionately higher than that in the lowest counts. 15 Production by mills ofthe coarse variety is still relatively unimportant as recent figures show. · While it has been found that different counts influence the type of machinery required, 16 there is no precise specification of this relationship. One may, however, postulate that the mills producing the coarser varieties use more dated and thus more labour-intensive processes of production.

According to Bagchi (1972) p. ' Prasad (1963) p. 123. This perhaps explains why the controlled cloth scheme instituted in 1964 has been such a failure. The scheme was designed to ensure that a part of the mill output would be of varieties used by the relatively poor and would be sold at prices they could afford. Instead of encouraging the production of coarse varieties the effect was to divert the output of the mills away from these varieties. See Economic and Political Weekly, vol. IX, no. 37 (14 September 1974).
