Boundary surface control (BoSC) is a useful method of reproducing the sound field physically. However, it is challenging in the case of real-time operation. This is mainly due to the calculation cost of a lot of inverse filter convolutions to obtain reproduction signals. This paper proposes a method for reducing of number of inverse filters and implements it in 24-channel narrow directivity (shotgun) microphone array and 24-channel circularly arranged loudspeaker array. Moreover, it provides an...

Electroglottography (EGG) is a low-cost, non-invasive method for documenting laryngeal sound production during vocalization. The EGG signal represents relative vocal fold contact area and thus delivers physiological evidence of vocal fold vibration. While the method has received much attention in human voice research over the last five decades, it has seen very little application in other mammals. Here, we give a concise overview of mammalian vocal production principles. We explain how...

Our understanding of the evolution of human speech has been expanded by an increased knowledge of vocal anatomy and physiology in non-human primates. Comparative approaches provide evidence supporting the primate origins of many speech faculties. The descent of the larynx enables the two-tube configuration of the supralaryngeal vocal tract (SVT) in humans; however, this configuration is also found in chimpanzees and macaques. The acoustic properties of voices produced in helium gas support the...

Shipley et al. (1994) theoretically and empirically demonstrated that the maximum feeding rate of mammalian herbivores (mainly ungulates) is largely determined by morphological factors and ultimately by body mass. By using values from the published literature, I conducted the scaling of 2 indices of feeding rate with body mass in wild primates: (1) the maximum and (2) the mean of dry weight intake rate (g/min) of different food items. The maximum feeding rate scaled with body weight to the...

Morphological differentiation of island-dwelling organisms provides model systems for studying evolution. Computed tomography (CT) scanning is an entirely non-destructive technique that provides detailed three-dimensional (3D) images of physical structures. Geometric morphometrics has been increasingly used in avian morphology studies by analyzing 3D data obtained from CT scans. We used geometric morphometrics to evaluate the morphological details of the skulls of three, genetically distinct,...

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is secreted from hypothalamic neurons (GnRH neurons) and stimulates anterior pituitary gonadotrophs to synthesize and secrete gonadotropins. In addition to gonadotrophs, GnRH neurons also express GnRH receptors, and the autocrine action of GnRH is reportedly involved in the regulation of functions of GnRH neurons. There is accumulating evidence that extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), one of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs), is activated...

In the cyclohexane derivatives, the equatorial conformer, having less steric repulsion of hydrogen atoms adjacent to substituent, is dominant over the axial conformer. This is a normal stereochemical requirement. In hexose, containing oxygen atoms in the ring, however, α-anomer (with axial substituent) is more stable than β-anomer (with equatorial substituent) and it is called the anomeric effect. Why does this phenomenon, which is not compatible with the stereochemical intuition (but still...

Histone H3 mutations are frequently found in diffuse midline gliomas (DMGs), which include diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas and thalamic gliomas. These tumors have dismal prognoses. Recent evidence suggests that one reason for the poor prognoses is that O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter frequently lacks methylation in DMGs. This review compares the epigenetic changes brought about by histone mutations to those by isocitrate dehydrogenase-mutant gliomas, which frequently...

In our research, a series of 8-substituted coumarin derivatives were synthesized, and their structures were confirmed by FT-IR, 1H-NMR, and MS (or HRMS). In activity screening, the synthesized compounds exhibited potent antifungal activity against 4 phytopathogenic fungi: Botrytis cinerea, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, Fusarium oxysporum, and Valsa mali. Notably, 8-chloro coumarin and ethyl 8-chloro-coumarin-3-carboxylate showed the strongest fungus inhibition with EC50of 0.085 and 0.078...

Polycyclic aromatic compounds are ubiquitous atmospheric pollutants with toxic, mutagenic, and carcinogenic properties. They are produced from chemical reactions of their parent compounds in the atmosphere as well as from a wide variety of anthropogenic sources such as fuel combustions. The present review is mainly concerned with several reaction pathways regarding secondary formation of atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) derivatives, i.e., formation of mutagenic nitrated PAHs,...

We report the results of a randomized experiment conducted in Japan as part of a mail survey of voters. In this experiment, we examined whether or not inserting a pen in the questionnaire would improve the response rate. We employed a two-by-two treatment in which we varied the price of the pen (high-priced or low-priced) and whether or not the pen was inserted in a paper-made box. We found that providing a pen increased the response rate by more than nine percentage points. We also found that...

This paper analyzes quotations from the four Gospels that were used by Michel Henry to develop his philosophy of Christianism, clarifying three characteristics of his book – Words of Christ. First, Words of Christ includes more quotations from the synoptic Gospels than his other books, I Am the Truth and Incarnation. These quotations are not solely used to try to overturn human nature; they are also meant to illustrate the theories Henry presents in I Am the Truth and provide a way to...

Microsatellite markers were developed for the endangered orchid Calanthe izu-insularis (Orchidaceae). This species is unique to the Izu Islands in Japan. Unfortunately, its population size has decreased because of excessive collection for horticultural purposes. In addition, although natural hybridization between C. izu-insularis and C. discolor var. discolor has been reported, morphological differences between C. izu-insularis and the hybridized individuals remain unclear.

The nitrogen solubility in cast iron melt containing carbon, silicon and manganese was measured by the gas-liquid metal equilibration technique in the temperature range from 1573 to 1873 K. The nitrogen solubility in carbon saturated liquid iron decreased with increasing temperature due to the effect of carbon content increasing with temperature. The simultaneous effect of carbon, silicon and manganese on nitrogen was also measured to determine the second-order cross-product parameters of those...

The main source of vibration and noise in hydraulic systems is the flow ripple at the pump output which interacts with the downstream components and generates pressure ripple in the current, structureborne noise in mechanical parts and airborne noise in the environment. The present research was suggested by the observation that some peaks in the airborne noise spectrum of a specific pump family were within a frequency range far from those typically related with the fl uidborne or structureborne...

This study was performed to investigate the influence of fuel/oxygen ratio (F/O = 3.2, 3.0, 2.8) on the characteristics of the HVOF sprayed Cr3C2 (7 mass%NiCr) coatings after heat treatment up to 1000°C. Decomposition and oxidation of the Cr3C2 occurred during spraying. The degree of decomposition from Cr3C2 to Cr7C3 was increased with decreasing the F/O ratio. The micro-structural differences of the as-sprayed coatings with F/O ratio cannot be distinguished. However, large pores were...

In 2015, Gower and Richtárik presented a unifying framework for a variety of randomized iterative algorithms for consistent linear systems. The framework includes the randomized Kaczmarz method that exponentially converges in the mean square whenever the system is consistent. For noisy linear systems corresponding to inconsistent systems, the randomized Kaczmarz method computes an approximate solution within a fixed distance depending on the norm of the noise vector. We extend this error...

Second language (L2) speaking assessment can be affected by raters as well as tasks and other factors. High-stakes speaking tests require that high rater reliability be assured and that such information be reported to the public. In Japan, investigations into rater reliability and the use of multifaceted Rasch analysis have been limited for L2 speaking assessment in both high-stakes contexts and classroom situations. To fill this gap, this study examines the rater reliability of the Speaking...

As a kind of efficient and rapid developed surface processing technique, polishing technology is widely used to improve the surface quality in the precision manufacturing of aero-engine blisk blades. Since blisk blade polishing is a metal removal process which aims to produce smooth surfaces with very low surface roughness, it is difficult to achieve the optimum balance between high material removal rate and low surface roughness. To solve this problem, this study investigates the process...

While the character embeddings have been successful for alphabetical languages, Japanese is difficult to be processed at the character level as well because of the large vocabulary of kanji, written in the Chinese characters. In order to achieve fewer parameters and better generalization on infrequent words and characters, we...

This paper modestly expands an invited talk at ISSS-8 with the same title. After reviewing the relevant interactions between adsorbates on substrates with metallic surface states [especially Cu(111)], it focuses on organic adsorbates. Of particular interest are those which form honeycomb lattices with pores of various sizes. The nature of the confined states derived from the surface-state electrons is discussed as their effect on admolecules inside the pores.

It was recently found that mud flocculates, or flocs, coexist with methane hydrate within turbidite layers. Flocs may be susceptible to the flow of pure water originated form the dissociation of methane hydrate and can cause problems, such as well plugging or stratum deformation, in the case of long-term gas production. However, there is little information about flocs. We designed an observation apparatus which is capable of holding a grain of floc and obtained stereo-vision images. We...
