  • Patent number: 10371820
    Abstract: An observation data screening unit (103) executes least squares method positioning using, as an observation amount, n (n is an integer of 3 or larger) number of single difference amounts of an L1-wave pseudorange obtained from n pieces of observation data from n number of positioning satellites and n pieces of correction data corresponding to the n pieces of the observation data. The observation data screening unit (103) calculates a sum of squares of n residuals obtained for each positioning satellite by executing the least squares method positioning and normalizes the n residuals. The observation data screening unit (103) then evaluates the sum of squares of the residuals and the n normalized residuals.

  • Patent number: 10372034
    Abstract: An imprint apparatus for forming a pattern of an imprint material on a substrate using a mold includes a heating unit, a generation unit, and a measurement unit. The heating unit irradiates a region to be processed on the substrate with light to heat the region to be processed. The generation unit generates irradiation amount distribution data, which indicates an irradiation amount distribution of light with which the heating unit is to irradiate the region to be processed. The measurement unit measures information about absorption of the light by the region to be processed. The generation unit generates the irradiation amount distribution data by correcting, using a result of measurement by the measurement unit, temporary irradiation amount distribution data temporarily generated based on a shape of the region to be processed taken before the region to be processed is heated by the heating unit.

  • Publication number: 20190195114
    Abstract: A controller estimates a first estimated adsorption amount which is an amount of adsorption of ammonia in the SCR catalyst at the time when the SCR catalyst is assumed to be in a predetermined abnormal state, estimates a second estimated adsorption amount at the time when the SCR catalyst is assumed to be in a predetermined normal state, calculates a first slip development temperature based on the first estimated adsorption amount, and calculates a second slip development temperature based on the second estimated adsorption amount. The controller, when carrying out an abnormality diagnosis based on a concentration of ammonia in an exhaust gas at the downstream side of the SCR catalyst, carries out diagnostic temperature control so as to control the temperature of the SCR catalyst to a temperature which is equal to or more than the first slip development temperature and is less than the second slip development temperature.
