On One Estimation of the Regression Curve
Presented March 28, 2006
ABSTRACT. In the present work we consider estimates of a regression function, when the values of the response in the experiment are not observed, and only the values of the indicator function of the event are fixed: “observation does not exceed a threshold”. The limiting distribution of quadratic deviation of the so-constructed estimate of the regression curve is found. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 429-431.

On the Problem of Dynamics of the Ionospheric Wavy Disturbances in the Shear Flow
Presented by Member of the Academy J. Lominadze, February 22, 2006
Abstract. The generation and further dynamics of planetary magnetized Rossby waves and inertia waves are investigated in the rotating dissipative ionosphere in the presence of a smooth inhomogeneous zonal wind (shear flow). Magnetized Rossby waves appear as a result of the interaction of the medium with the spatially inhomogeneous geomagnetic field and are an ionospheric manifestation of usual tropospheric Rossby waves. An effective linear mechanism responsible for the intensification and mutual transformation of Rossby and inertia waves is found. The nonmodal approach shows that the transformation of wave disturbances in shear flows is due to the nonorthogonality of eigenfunctions of the problem in the conditions of linear dynamics. Thus there arise a new degree of freedom and a new way for the evolution of disturbances in the medium. Using the numerical modeling, we illustrate the peculiar features of the interaction of waves with the background flow, as well as the mutual transformation of wave disturbances in the D-, E- and F-regions of the ionosphere. It is established that the presence of a geomagnetic field, Hall and Pedersen currents in the ionospheric medium improves the interaction and mutual energy exchange between waves and shear flow. © 2006 Bull.

Dynamics of Localized Packets of
Waves in Gaseous Disks
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy G. Chagelishvili, January 4, 2006
Abstract. We apply the non-modal approach in combination with numerical calculations to the study of the dynamics of packets of spiral density waves in gaseous disks. To analyze the dynamics of localized (both in ordinary and K-planes) packets of spiral density waves we take a Gaussian packet of short leading waves in K-plane at the initial moment of time. It turns out that the properties of the packet dynamics in physical plane largely depend on the initial location of the packet Fourier transform in K-plane. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad.

Three Dimentional Modeling of the Recurrent Forbush Effect of Galactic Cosmic Rays
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy T. Chelidze, February 21, 2006
Abstract. Parker’s transport equation is used for modeling of the recurrent Forbush effect of the galactic cosmic ray (GCR) intensity. It is assumed in the model that the recurrent Forbush effect is caused by changes of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) turbulence. Model calculations show that the increase of the exponent of the power spectral density (PSD) of the IMF turbulence leads to the hard rigidity spectrum of the recurrent Forbush effect of GCR intensity. © 2006 Bull.

Presented October 4, 2005
Abstract. Polarographic method of quantitative and qualitative determination of pharmaceutical preparation dimedrol has been presented in wide ranges of concentration (10-5¸10-2 mole/l). On the basis of impedance studies it was shown that large organic molecule of dimedrol has high adsorption ability but on the electrode surface it is adsorbed in electrochemically disadvantageous state. Complete desorption of dimedrol occurs with ~-2.0 V more negative potential and then its polarographic reduction diffusively and irreversibly with half wave potential E 1/2=-2.37 V becomes possible. . © 2006 Bull.

Production of Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide from Suspension in Conditions of Prolonged Electrolysis
Presented by Member of the Academy J. Japaridze, March 21, 2000
ABSTRACT. The high-temperature (97-98 °C) process of the production of electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) from fine-dispersed (5-10 m) MnO2-powder containing aggregatively stable suspension permits the process intensification at the expense of the realization of high anodic current densities (150-200 A·m-2) which is nearly twice as large as the values of anodic current densities, used in usual method of EMD production.
In the mentioned conditions the titanium anode is not subjected to passivation and the voltage values is held constant in the course of the overall process. The obtained deposits of g-modified EMD are products of high-purity and the content in them of MnO2 is up to ~90% [1-4].
For the purpose of the establishment of the stability of high-temperature suspension bath process of EMD electrosynthesis the serial experiments of prolonged electrolysis (450 h) were performed on titanium anode. The obtained data show that the use of mentioned process is promising. From suspension solutions of manganese sulfate and sulphuric acid of various concentrations, containing high-dispersed MnO2-powder, the high-quality thick deposits (0.028 m) of g-modified MnO2 were obtained in conditions of stable voltage. © 2006 Bull.

Abstract. The analysis of zero isotherm (lower line of the glacial zone) curve and relief profile of different meridians in the free atmosphere has been conducted. Seperate regions of the earth are located inside the zero isotherm curve and the glacial zone develops on them. Antarctic is within this zone, what causes falling of the zero isotherm down to the sea surface on the 600 latitude of the south hemisphere. High reliefs of some mountain regions are located in the nival zone and owing to greater precipitations there were developed glaciers. There are given the lower boundaries of the nival-glacial zones on the constructed diagrams. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.519-522

Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy Z. Tatashidze, November, 2005
ABSTRACT. Tourism has been one of the major economic and social phenomena of the past century. The development of tourism is characterized by the continuing geographical spread and diversification of tourist destinations.
Climate and weather have both a direct and an indirect impact on tourism. Changes to climatic conditions could affect the flows of tourists, overall arrivals at destinations or result in a seasonal shift of tourism activity.
For tourism businesses weather and climate information and predictions of extreme climatic events developed by National Meteorological and Hydrological services are becoming increasingly important.
For Georgian conditions on the bases of accepted methods complex parameters have been identified by taking into account climate change. On their bases the recreation-tourist climatic regionalization map of the territory of Georgia has been composed and integrated in the building standards and rates. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad.

Influence of Irrigation and Drainage on the Environment
Presented by Member of the Academy Ts. Mirtskhoulava, February 27, 2006
ABSTRACT. Irrigation and drainage of agricultural areas drastically change the environment. It can be expressed both by positive and negative influences. The irrigation of grounds in over moistened areas does not change the amount of average long-term flowing. There are distinguished three kinds of hydrological cycles of closed territory: planetary, local and the zone of aeration. One of the negative influences of irrigation on the environment is growth of the volume of return waters. Underground waters actively participate in feeding of the marshlands and swamps in Kolkheti lowland. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 530-532

On Natural Regeneration of Georgian Oak in Eastern Georgia
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy T. Urushadze, December 27, 2005
ABSTRACT. The article deals with the peculiarities of natural regeneration of Georgian oak stands in east Georgia, particularly in Kakheti region. It has been identified that Georgian oak fructifies once every 2-3 years in east Georgia and during this period it produces up to 0.5-1.0 million seeds. Out of them 95-98% of acorns are damaged due to different reasons. Young plants, remained at oak stand, die being 1-8 year-old. Proceeding from the above-said it can be concluded that natural regeneration of Georgian oak in east Georgia needs to be supported. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 548-550

Peculiarities of Sprout Development in Magnolia Grandiflora
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy V. Papunidze, March 21, 2006
Abstract. This work shows seasonal rhythms of Magnolia Grandiflora sprouts. The consecutive phases of sprout and bud developments during the whole year are pointed out, which is of a great importance for the magnolia successful introduction. The boundaries between elemental buds on perennial monopodially growing sprouts of Magnolia Grandiflora may be defined by ring-shaped pits of the scales on the terminal buds, which do not have pits from the leaf plates. The annual growth consists of a singular elemental sprout. During formation of a new sprout conception of primordial leaves on its apex takes place. Increment of the vegetation bud volume during autumn and winter periods is not noted. Conception of flowers in buds on different branches takes place nonsynchronously and it lasts for the same extended period of time as the flowering does. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 562-564

Influence of Acidic Precipitations on Green and Red-Leaf Forms of some Vegetables
Presented by Member of the Academy N. Nutsubidze, February 7, 2006
ABSTRACT. Influence of spraying with pH2.5 solution of H2SO4 on leaves of red and green-leaf forms of basil (Ocimum basilicum L.), cabbage (Brassica capitata L.) and beet (Beta vulgaris L.) has been studied. Investigations have revealed that higher physiological and biochemical indices are characteristic for the red-leaf forms of the studied plants, compared with green forms of the same species. In particular, they have more intensive photosynthesis, higher content of total proteins and antioxidants, more activity of auxins. While affecting with acidic precipitations the studied indices appeared to be more stable in red-leaf forms. The obtained results make possible to conclude that red-leaf forms of the studied plants are more adaptive to environmental stress. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.565-567

Influence of Hippocampal Injuries on Discriminative Learning
Presented by Member of the Academy T. Oniani, January 10, 2006
Abstract. In the present work different hippocampal regions were lesioned in cats and following effects were studied during discriminative learning. Unilateral damage to the anterior-ventral hippocampus appeared to be more effective. In all cases conditioned trace reactions were deteriorated. Combined lesions to different hippocampal regions were also tryed. According to the data obtained hippocampus does not take part in the performance of Pavlovian conditioned reflexes. Hippocampal functions are realized in short and long-term spatial memory tests. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.568-570

The Modulative Influence of the Mitochondrial Glucose-Specific Lectin on the Bovine Brain HCO3–-ATPase Activity
Presented May 23, 2006
ABSTRACT. Glucose-specific lectin (BML-Glu) has been isolated from the bovine brain mitochondria. The influence of this lectin on the enzymatic activity of bovine brain HCO3–-ATPase of the mitochondrial origin has been studied. It is determined that BML-Glu lectin approximately twice increases the enzymatic activity. The optimal conditions (the concentration of HCO3-ion and of ATP, pH-optimum) of HCO3– – ATPase work in the incubation medium in presence of lectin and without it are determined. It is also determined that the influence of two valence ions on HCO3– – ATPase activity changes in the incubation medium in presence of BML-Glu lectin. Namely, due to the influence of BML-Glu-lectin on the enzyme the inhibiting influence of Ca2+ decreases approximately 1.5 times, but that of Cu2+ decreases approximately 5 times. As for Fe2+ and Mn2+ it turned out that in presence of lectin the activating influence of Fe2+ and Mn2+on the enzyme increases. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 578-581.

Human Sperm Carbohydrate-Binding Proteins (HSp-CBP) at Normozoospermy and Invasion with Chlamidia trachomatis
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy N. Aleksidze, March 23, 2006
Abstract. Human Sperm Carbohydrate-binding proteins (HSp-CBP) at normozoospermy and invasion with Chlamidia trachomatis have been studied. It is determined that during chlamydeous the lectin activity in sperm plasma increases that of the norm. Mannose-specific lectin (HSp-Man) has been purified on agarose-mannose affinity sorbent with HPLC on Gel-filtrated Ultropac TSK G3000 SW column. Chlamidia trachomatis DNA, causing infection in sperm, has been identified with polymerize-chain reactin (PCR). It has been suggested that mannose-specific lectin could relatively be the immune modulator component of genital tract secret. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.582-585

Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs on Anaphylactic Shock and on Herxheimer Microshock in Guinea Pigs
Presented by the Member of the Academy T. Oniani, February 16, 2006
Abstract. We searched the activity of phenytoine and sodium valproate in experimental model of anaphylactic shock and in Herxheimer microshock. Guinea pigs were actively sensitized with ovalbumin i.p. and 21 days later the anaphylactic shock or the Herxheimer microshock was performed. Phenytoin sodium or sodium valproate administered orally and also injected 30 min before Herxheimer microshock significantly delayed the development of apnea in the beginning of microshock. Previous inhalation of these drugs did not delay the development of apnea in the beginning of microshock. Therefore i.p. use of antiepileptic drugs modulate apnea during bronchospasm in animals with Herxheimer microshock, and this definitely elucidate mechanisms of clinical efficacy of some antiepileptic drugs in asthma therapy. © 2006 Bull.

Importance of Anti-IL-6 and Anti-HP Antibodies in Case of Gastroduodenal Pathologies
Presented by Member of the Academy F. Todua, February 22, 2006
Abstract. In the recent period the role of Helicobacter Pylor (HP) in inducing gastroduodenal ulcerous processes, gastric adenocarcimoma and extranodal B-cell lymphoma has been determined. In order to identify HP infection bacteriologic, morphologic, radiologic, serologic and molecular-genetic tests are applied. The minimum traumatism and possibility to investigate simultaneously several individuals is the advantage of serologic test (ELISA). Quantitative analysis of interleukin-6 (IL-6) occurred to be most informative among studied parameters. In the course of gastroduodenal processes concentration of IL-6 significantly increases compared to ulcerogenic and mixed processes. It seems, that in case of ulcerogenic processes the production of IL-6 is suppressed. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.608-610

Evidence of Influence of Soybean Isoflavones on the Antioxidant Properties of Rats’ Blood and Liver
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy T. Dekanosidze, July 26, 2005
Abstract. Over the past few years, there has been increasing interest in possible beneficial effects of soybean isoflavones on human metabolism. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of antioxidant properties of soybean on EPR (Electron-Paramagnetic-Resonance) spectroscopic parameters of blood and liver and percentage correlation of hemoglobin derivatives in erythrocytes of experimental rats (Vistar species). After soybean diet of 3 months duration, EPR-signal of ceruloplasmin in the rats’ blood decreased by 25% (p<0.05) compared to control group, the intensity of Fe3+ transferin EPR – signal increased by 20% (p<0.05), the changes of Fe2+ and Mn2+- EPR-signals were not detected. In liver, EPR-signals of free radicals decreased by 14% (p<0.01) on the background of decreasing of their half-broad signal (by 21% (p<0.05)). Intensity of EPR signals of FeS complexes decreased by 25.8% (p<0.01), Mn2+- signals – 36.2% (p<0.01), cyt. P-450 – 31 % (p<0.001). Concentration of oxyhemoglobin rose by 3.2 %, (p<0.005), variations were not revealed in dioxyhemoglobin level, and methemoglobin declined by 3.3% (p<0.01).
The results of the study revealed increasing antioxidant properties of an organism under the influence of soybean diet. We think that increasing consumption of soybean products will prevent an organism from many diseases, which are connected with excess generation of free radicals. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.611-614

Dualistic Nature of the Georgian National Land Ownership Psychology in Historic and Economic Context
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy L.Chikava, February 9, 2006
Abstract. In the present paper analysis of dualistic nature of psychology regarding land ownership and its defining factors in Georgia is made. It argues that the principles of individual and communal ownership of land harmoniously combined two distinct psychological tendencies – proclivity to individualism and collectivism. Consequently, on the one hand, they combined economic freedom and private initiative of individualism with the interests of collective, social values on the other hand. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl.

The Problem of Personal Choice
(Guram Dochanasvili, “The Best Clothes”)
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy E. Khintibidze, December 27, 2005
Abstract. In the 70s of the 20th century Georgian literature was greatly influenced by writers who made persistent attempts to break away from the established literary conventions. Guram Dochanashvili‘s (born in 1939) major creation, the novel “The Best Clothes” became the symbol of the world‘s sickness. By the writer the only way to return to God is putting on the Best Clothes (paradigm of Lord‘s Word).
Dochanashvili devotes his great literary talent to pursuit of a life more full, free and intense than the contemporary world can grant to men.
The underlying purpose of his art is to restore natural balance in living destroyed by the evils of atheism. One of the most important aspects of the novel The Best Clothes by Guram Dochanashvili is the problem of personal choice. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp.627-628

Fall Through Pride in O’Neill’s Drama
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy E. Khintibidze, January 17, 2006
Abstract. The article deals with some critical questions about the nature of the idea of O’Neill’s plays. O’Neill’s conception of process as the unity in which opposites are reconciled has numberless philosophical parallels and sources. But O’Neill as a twentieth-century man had to interpret the ancient idea in the twentieth-century symbols and terms. He found this conception in the conditions of modern living and in the language of psychoanalysis. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci. pp. 632-634
