  • Publication number: 20190251194
    Abstract: Techniques related to code dictionary generation based on non-blocking operations are disclosed. In some embodiments, a column of tokens includes a first token and a second token that are stored in separate rows. The column of tokens is correlated with a set of row identifiers including a first row identifier and a second row identifier that is different from the first row identifier. Correlating the column of tokens with the set of row identifiers involves: storing a correlation between the first token and the first row identifier, storing a correlation between the second token and the second row identifier if the first token and the second token have different values, and storing a correlation between the second token and the first row identifier if the first token and the second token have identical values. After correlating the column of tokens with the set of row identifiers, duplicate correlations are removed.

  • Publication number: 20190196606
    Abstract: A projector is provided, which has a plurality of operating modes, including a first operating mode in which a beam of electromagnetic waves is emitted by the projector. In addition, a detection unit is configured in such a way that in the first operating mode of the projector the presence of an object in the optical path of the beam is detected. Moreover, the projector includes a processing unit which is developed to switch from the first operating mode to a second operating mode that differs from the first operating mode when an object is detected in the optical path of the beam.

  • Patent number: 10308671
    Abstract: The present invention is concerned with derivatives of 3,5-diphenyl-diazole compounds, which are effective therapeutic agents for use in treating diseases linked to protein aggregation and/or neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), and Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). The therapeutic effect is caused by the inhibition of the protein aggregation in the affected tissue, such as the brain. 3,5-Diphenyl-diazole derivatives have been shown to be effective in inhibiting aggregation of proteins but are also characterized by their poor solubility in aqueous solutions. The prodrugs of the invention are modified 3,5-diphenyl-diazole derivatives, which are characterized by their improved solubility in aqueous solutions, and by their increased bioavailability.

  • Patent number: 10223437
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for adaptive data repartitioning and adaptive data replication is provided. A data set stored in a distributed data processing system is partitioned by a first partitioning key. A live workload comprising a plurality of data processing commands is processed. While processing the live workload, statistical properties of the live workload are maintained. Based on the statistical properties of the live workload with respect to the data set, it is determined to replicate and/or repartition the data set by a second partitioning key. The replicated and/or repartitioned data set is partitioned by the second partitioning key.

  • Patent number: 5165970
    Abstract: A method for the uniform coating of honeycomb bodies with finely divided solid matter from a dispersion in an amount which is below that which arises during customary immersion. To this end, the honeycomb is flooded from below with dispersion, emptied after a dwell time and blown out. Filling time, filling amount, dwell time emptying time as well as the time between emptying and blowing out are measured in such a manner that in order to increase the separated amount of solid matter, filling time, dwell time, pumping-out time and the time between emptying and blowing out are increased but the filling amount is reduced.

  • Patent number: 5127960
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method are disclosed for the removal and the recovery of washcoat remaining in the channels of freshly coated monolithic or honeycombed catalytic carriers. The carrier is inserted into a chamber from above and tightly fitted therein at least with the lowest part of the carrier therein. The chamber is fitted with a collection area and a runoff located thereunder. The runoff leads via a shutoff valve into a separation vessel under a vacuum. The opening and closing of the shutoff valve causes air to be aspirated through the carrier channels, which are open at the top or are gradually opened by means of a slotted slide. This action causes the washcoat remnants to be transferred into the separation vessel, where they can be collected in the sump and are then pumped off. The apparatus can be used in systems for manufacturing catalysts for cleaning exhaust gases.
