Mean Square Optimal Hedging Strategies for Currency Option
by Corr. Member of the Academy N.Vakhania,
Abstract. In this paper we consider the currency market where the foreign savings account process expressed in domestic currency and discount by domestic savings account represent a martingale with respect to the initial measure. We find hedging strategies for the European contingent claim to be optimal in the sense of square criterion.

Absolute and Unconditional Convergence in l1
Abstract. One of the consequences of the famous Dvoretzky-Rogers theorem (1950) is the existence of an unconditionally convergent series in l1 that fails to converge absolutely. The first direct proof of this fact was given by M. S. Macphail (1947). We give a simple and elementary example for this kind of series.

The Interaction of Photon Clusters with Matter
Presented April 5, 1999
Abstract. Analyzing the results obtained with high-power laser radiation, we revealed that the process of multiquantum absorption of atoms could be explained by interaction of photon cluster with matter. We expect that laser radiation consists of multiquantum spikes, the intensity of which is described by small numbers law. Experimental results are described in the supposition that multiphoton spikes can be simultaneously absorbed by atoms.

On the Optimal Structure of Georgian Power System
Presented by Member of the Academy V. Chichinadze, February 1, 1999
Abstract. Electric power original cost mostly depends on power system structure, or on the ratio of hydropower output to thermal power output. With the structural index 0.6 for Georgia the change-over of the thermal power plant from imported fuel-firing to captively produced fuel would cut down electric power original cost by 17.1%, whereas the change-over from thermal power plant to nuclear power plant would make 56% electric power original cost reduction.

presented October 12, 1998
Abstract. The effect of food deprivation on the sleep-wakefulness (S/W) cycle was studied by 24h polygraphic recording in rodents (rat, guinea pig). It has been demonstrated that food motivation cannot exert a specific influence on the need for sleep and the S/W cycle deranged by hunger recovers to its normal pattern still during food deprivation.

The Tropomyosin Molecule Domain Potentiating Actomyosin
Presented June 15, 1998
Abstract. The investigation of the influence of rabbit skeletal muscle tropomyosin and rabbit antibodies against the chicken gizzard muscle tropomyosin on the contractile properties of rabbit skeletal muscle actomyosin has shown that antigene and antibodies act identically- they both potentiate contraction, that means that they must have sites of similar construction.
Considering this fact and literary data about the antigene sites of rabbit skeletal muscle, chicken breast, cardiac and gizzard muscles tropomyosins we supposed the localization of domain of tropomyosin molecule which is responsible over the potentiation of actomyosin contraction. It corresponds to fragment of tropomyosin molecule which can be obtained by cleavaging the tropomyosin molecule using the cyanogenbromide - CNBr-1 and contains the part of tropomyosin molecule from 11 to 126 amino acid residues inclusively.

On Some Regularities of Phenol-Peptide Conjugates Formation
Presented by Member of the Academy G. Kvesitadze, August 3, 1998
Abstract. The mechanism of phenol-peptide conjugates formation has been studied. Phenol, incubated with low-molecular total fraction in the presence of enzymatic preparations, forms phenol-peptide conjugates. By the method of selective inhibition it was found, that the synthesis of the indicated compounds is accomplished by metalloenzymes with copper and iron active sites. To localize the process of detoxication the distribution of 1-14C phenol radioactive carbon in cellular organelles has been studied. It was stated that intact plastids possess phenol-peptide conjugates forming ability.
BIOCHEMISTRY I. Abdushelishvili, V. Phiriashvili, B. Arziani, V. UgrekhelidzeInfluence of copper on the hydroxylation of exogenous benzoic acid in pea seedlingsPresented by Member of the Academy G. Kvesitadze, August 3, 1998ABSTRACT. Transformation of 114C-benzoic acid in sterile pea seedlings grown in nutrient solution with (40 mg ion/l) copper has been studied. The formation of labelled p-hydroxybenzoic acid in its free and conjugated form is found to be higher in plants, grown in copper-containing medium.Enzyme preparation obtained from plants grown in copper-containing medium shows high diphenoloxidase (substrate – pyrocatechol) and monophenoloxidase (substrate p-cresol) activities. It is suggested, that the primary hydroxylation of exogenous compounds in higher plants is catalyzed mainly by copper-containing enzymes.BiochemistryN. Moseshvili, Corr. Member of the Academy N.

Soluble proteins with lectin activity have been revealed in Mentha pulegium. Their quantitative distribution in different parts of the plant was established according to the season. Two lectins sensitive to D-galacturonic acid and D-trehalose are found to be mainly present in Mentha pulegium. Both of these lectins display their maximum activity on nontrypsin treated rabbit erythrocytes, which indicates to the specific dependence of erythrocytes membrane in relation to glycoprotein-glycolipid structures.MICROBIOLOGY AND VIROLOGYA.

It appeared that on the open area most of them (88 strains) were gramm-positive baccilli and cocci of the families of Arthrobacter, Corynebacterium, Rhodococcus, Bacillus, Micrococcus and Staphilococcus. At the same time, specific composition of coverings of materials on the closed stands was presented by equal amount of gramm-positive and gramm-negative bacilli probably connected with comparatively higher stability of gramm-positive bacteria to the external environmental factors.MICROBIOLOGY AND VIROLOGYD.

Presented by Member of the Academy G. Gigauri, June 22,1998
Abstract. Bacterial formulation - Insectine mixed with subletal doses of Dymiline has been tested on the main leaf-gnawing pest of forest - Ocneria dispar L. It appears that the application of Dymiline in advance weakens the pest and then Bt, in this case Insectine, reaches maximal effect in biological control. Substantial decrease of Insectine concentration does not change the results.

The present paper provides for the study of the influence of Plaferon LB on the morphofunctional activity and in particular on the transcriptional activity of hepatocytes in white rats. It has been demonstrated, that Plaferon LB induces intensification of the RNA synthesis activity in hepatocyte nuclei in vivo and in vitro systems. Activation of the liver tissue due to the Plaferon LB influence was also observed by morphological studies. Our results led to the conclusion, that Plaferon LB, a composition obtained from the amniotic covering of placenta, has the ability to stimulate functional activity of liver cells, which first of all is expressed through intensification of their RNA-synthesis activity.HYDROBIOLOGYJ.

From year to year resistance is varied from 38% to 75%. 182 strains were isolated from the patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in 1992-97. 120 of them (66%), appeared to be resistant, 91 strains (76%), appeared polyresistant thus increasing in years.EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINE M. JebashviliThe Importance of Psychoadaptational and Personality Peculiarities in Development of Early MenopausePresented by Member of the Academy N. Kipshidze, September 30, 1998Abstract. In present paper we investigate the influence of psychosocial factors and the importance of personality peculiarities in early menopause development. For this a complex psychological study was conducted on 44 women with early menopause aged 30-40 and 35 practically healthy women, of the same age, without menopause. Thus, women with psychoadaptation disorders are predisposed to early menopause, especially when they are stressed at this age. We think that it is necessary to study psychological factors in women with early menopause. The obtained data received from such a study will help to identify high risk in women and take preventive measures.PALAEOBIOLOGYMember of the Academy L. Gabunia, O.
