Application of FEM/MoM Approach for Investigation of Vehicle Glass Antennas
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy E. Nadaraya February 24, 2006
Abstract. Investigations of vehicle glass antenna are the important part of EMC simulations in automotive industry. Hybrid FEM/MoM approach can be considered as one of the ways of direct solution. MoM techniques are very efficient for solving open radiation problems with long thin wires and conducting surfaces. FEM is very well suited for modeling inhomogeneous dielectric bodies. Thus, the conjugation of the MoM with the FEM exploits the benefits from both methods. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Presented by Member of the Academy T. Sanadze, June 13, 2006
ABSTRACT. For samples KMF3 and (where M is the 3d metallic ion; X=Cl, Br) with the localized spins, above the Neel temperature the expressions for EPR line shape and linewidth as well as for transverse (Tx, Ty ) and longitudinal (Tz) relaxation times of localized spins are obtained.
As an example, the obtained expressions are used for KCuF3. Corresponding plots for the angular dependence of the relaxation times of localized spins are given. The angular dependence of the EPR line shape which has also been obtained using this approach is in complete agreement with the data of previous theoretical and experimental investigations. The results of the carried out analytical study of the angular dependence of transverse and longitudinal relaxation rates can foster new experiments and become very useful for solution of problems of applied character. © 2006 Bull.

Presented by Member of the Academy J. Japaridze, April 25, 2006
ABSTRACT. For the purpose of establishment of an electrochemical activity the samples of compact g-modified EMD, obtained by suspension bath process (SBP), were tested in the alkaline-electrolytic model cell of current source of manganese-zinc system. After the prolonged serial experiments at 150-180 A·m-2 current densities, the tests of the obtained samples showed high electrochemical activity. It was reflected on the duration of the model element work, which comprises 160-170 min at the discharge up to 1.0V and 180-190 min at the discharge up to 0.9V.
These data support that EMD deposits, obtained from suspension, are characterized by high electrochemical properties. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

On the Mechanism of Olistostromes Genesis
(On the Example of Eocene Sediments of Georgia)
Presented by Member of the Academy I. Gamkrelidze, April 19, 2006
Abstract. On the basis of analysis of the mechanism of formation of olistostromes developed in the Eocene sediments of Georgia tectonic-gravitational, volcanogenic-gravitational, gravitational and mixed genetic groups are distinguished. Geological catastrophes, particularly tectonic movements and volcanism are considered as the main factors of olistostromes genesis. The analysis of olistostromes demonstrates that they unlike the “event deposits”, are consequence of multiple catastrophic events and their formation is significantly extended in time. Proceeding from all this, the olistostromes occupy a transitional place between the normal sedimentary rocks and the “event deposits”. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Abstract. The bulbs of squirting cucumber (Ecballium elaterium (L.) A. Rich.) and the tubers of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum Lin.) during cultivation without light and soil undergo metamorphosis and generate mitochondria instead of amyloplast. Generation of mitochondria happens from the cell nucleus in form of stroma. The number of the stromas are the same as the number of the objects of chromosome. Each stroma divides three times and generates 8 daughter stromas. The nucleus reduces in the volume during generation of stromas and finally eliminates. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Behavioural and EEG Reactions Following Damage to the Anterior and Posterior Cingulate Cortex
Presented by Member of the Academy T. Oniani, March 13, 2006
Abstract. In chronic experiments carried out in adult cats influence of electrolytic damage to the anterior (A21–A15) and posterior (A7–A-1) cingulate cortex on the spatial memory tests (conditioned auditory discrimination reflexes) and hippocampal EEG correlates were studied. It is shown that the anterior cingulate cortex of the right hemisphere strongly effects emotional reactions. Electrolytic lesions to this area do not induce marked changes in discriminative learning.
In contrast, electrolytic damage to the posterior cingulate areas (A7–A-1) significantly deteriorates learning processes. In the ipsilateral dorsal and ventral hippocampal fields high amplitude regular synchronized electrical activity of theta frequency (3-7 oscillations/sec) dominates. Transformation of theta activity into EEG desynchronization is not observed.
The experimental results obtained indicate
that integrity of the posterior cingulate cortex (retrosplenial cortex) appears
to be necessary for spatial memory consolidation and transformation of the
hippocampal EEG synchronization into desynchronization at the final stage of

The Nature of Influence of Mg2+, Co2+, Ni2+, Mn2+, Cu2+ and Zn2+ Ions on DNA Melting Temperature
Presented by Member of the Academy T. Zaalishvili, July 4, 2006.
Abstract. In the work the thermal destabilization of DNA double helix by some bivalent ions at their high content while the others cause only stabilization in the same range of concentrations is discussed. Experimental data show that the ions with destabilizing ability of DNA increase concentration of H+ ions in the solution. Thus, the action of these metal ions can be explained by their dual action – stabilizing effect and destabilization caused by decrease of pH of the solution. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Among them 142 persons were practically healthy with no complaints on intestinal diseases, and 105 persons had different complaints characteristic to diseases of digestive appratus. Alterations have been revealed in qualitative indexes of almost all studied components being manifested by deviation from the standard (excess or deficiency of particular groups of microorganisms as compared with norm). Disbalance of intestinal microflora in the studied population was caused mainly by the excess or deficiency of lactose negative E. coli bacteria (in all 102 cases). Disorders caused by the deficiency of bifid bacteria occupy the second position (deficiency was detected in 94 cases); then follow deficiency of lactose positive E. coli (90 cases) and deficiency or excess of Enterococci (79 cases). Excess of Proteus was detected in 26 cases; excess of fungi of Candida genus was found in 19 cases; excess of hemolytic Escherichia coli in 12 cases; excess of Staphilococcus aureus was detected in 6 cases.
On the basis of results of conducted investigations it can be concluded in the population of Mestia region most frequently the disbalance of intestinal microflora is manifested by the excess of lactose negative E. coli, whereas the results of profile examinations conducted in different regions and cities of Georgia point unambiguously to the priority of deficiency of bifid bacteria. © 2006 Bull.

Correlation between Body Measurements in Georgian Men of Middle Age (40-54 years)
Presented by Member of the Academy N. Javakhishvili, March 14, 2006
ABSTRACT. Of different anthropologic classifications existed until recently the most accepted is division of humans on dolichomorphic, meso- and brachymorphic constitutional types. Dolichomorphic somatotypes are known to have prolonged and narrow face, which correlates with dolichocephalia, where cranial index is 74.9. Brachymorphic somatotypes are characterized by wide face, round skull, cranial index exceeds 80, or if cranial index falls between 75 and 79.9, the skull is regarded as mesocephalic. Dolichomorphic somatotypes are characterized with thin and long neck, while the brachimorphic ones with short and thick neck do. Typological anatomic differences are especially well seen on extremities. In dolichomorphic constitutional type length of extremities exceeds in average by 4% and more that of brachymorphic somatotypes.
It has been established that in dolichomorphic Georgian men aged 40-45 years decrease in body weight takes place, while in brachy- and mesomorphic men increase of body weight is apparent. Reduction of Chest Circumference in dolichomorphic men is marked at more than 45 years of age. Decrease of Body Length with age is most evident in dolochomorphic somatotypes. It has been stated, that the majority of middle aged Georgian men belong to dolichomorphic somatotype, while also the mixed forms are observed. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Exposure of the Internal Carotid Artery on the Level of the Carotid Canal with Minimal Invasion: Anatomical Study
Presented by Member of the Academy N. Javakhishvili, March 26, 2006
ABSTRACT. The purpose of our investigation was to expose the intrapetrous vertical segment of the internal carotid artery with small incision providing maximal preservation of function and integrity of muscles and nerves in the corresponding region. Researches carried out on the cadavers show that surgical approach performed with the preauricular small incision makes it possible to expose adequately intrapetrous vertical segment of the internal carotid artery for shunting. The main points of surgical approach are luxation of the temporal-mandibular bone and milling of tympanic bone apophysis. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

IL-6 as the Indicator of Gastroduodenal Process
Presented by Member of the Academy F. Todua, April 1, 2006
ABSTRACT. We have studied interrelation between HP induced gastroduodenal pathologies and concentration of inflammatory cytokine IL-6 in peripherial blood. Patients with gastroduodenal pathologies (73 patients) have been examined and the obtained results compared with the results of examinations of healthy people (Control Group). The obtained data show that testing of IL-6 concentration in peripheral blood can become one of the additional tests used for diagnostics of chronic gastroduodenal diseases. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl.

Use of b-Blockers to Control Heart Rate in Patients with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation and Assessment of their Efficacy
Presented by Member of the Academy N. Kipshidze, April 11, 2006
ABSTRACT. The aim of the study was evaluation of b-blocker metoprolol (Metoprolol Succinatis used in Georgia), as a rate control agent in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) and assessment of its efficacy in heart rate management.
The study included 84 patients (44 men and 40 women, mean age 60), with tachysystolic and normosystolic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. 50mg of Metoprolol was administrated orally in 42 patients and the other 42 patients did not receive rate control agent (RCA). Effects of metoprolol on heart rate were analyzed and results were compared with control group.
The obtained results suggest that the use of 50 mg metoprolol reduces ventricular response during paroxysmal AF by 40%. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Capacity and Stability as Criteria of the Cardiorespiratory System Functional Fitness at Various Periods of Annual Training Cycle in Sportsmen
Presented by Member of the Academy T. Oniani, March 13, 2006
ABSTRACT. The aerobic power and the cardiorespiratory system (CRS) stability indices were studied in 26 cyclists – stayers divided into two groups (high and medium qualifications). The intragroup increase of aerobic power and the CRS stability indices were observed in the preparatory period. After comparing the stayers’ groups of high and medium qualifications significant differences only in stability indices of the CRS were revealed. In the competition period intergroup increasing of indices of aerobic power was not observed. The differences between the groups in aerobic power indices were not observed either. The data allow to conclude that differences in the level of the CRS functional training are determined not only by the degree of power development but also by the level of stability of the CRS functioning. © 2006 Bull.

Theoretical Approaches to the Lingistic Notion of Theme
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy G. Kvaratskhelia, May 11, 2006
Abstract. Various approaches to the linguistic notion of theme are considered in the paper. The definitions of theme are mostly based on the classic theory of Halliday which defines the theme of the clause as a point of departure. Some grammarians use the terms given and new instead of the notions of theme and rheme, some prefer to use the terms topic and comment. © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.

Functional Peculiarities of Detached Adjectives in Nominal Syntagma
Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy G. Kvaratskelia, May 3, 2006
ABSTRACT. Considering the influence of the utterance on the structure of syntagma the author has also studied attributes expressed by detached adjectives on the level of actual division. Preposed adjectives are connected with expressing thematic meaning, but postposed adjectives express rhematic meaning. The principal informational function of syntagmas with preposed adjectives is carried out by noun, but in syntagmas with postposed adjectives informational centre is formed by adjective. Such ordering of nouns and adjectives is called “objective” word order. Theme-rheme relations in nominal syntagma reflect not only natural logic of language that demands a basic and opening point of thematic initial position before rheme – new and unknown information; this relations also reflect semantic aspects of adjectives – their meaning and function: no semic hierarchy is created, no connotative meanings are characteristic of detached adjectives – they are presented by their denotative meanings.
Along with flectional adjectives non-flectional adjectives ending in -a are also used in nominal syntagma in German. Such are, e.g. extra, prima, lila, rosa, etc. that are used in the prepositional as well as postpositional field (Vorfeld/Nachfeld). © 2006 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.
