    All economic actors seeking sustainable functioning are forced to go through a process of digital transformation in the new economic conditions. The concept of “digital technology” has been defined, the development of information and communication technologies as the basis of digital transformation and information processing in spatial tracking systems has been described. The predictions of the future development of digital technology have been made. The characteristic of digital technologies has been given and this concept has been versatile considered from the theoretical point of view. Over time, we note that predictions are real and reflect on scientific and applied reality with greater results than planned. Technology complements one another, such as the principle of Science and ideas.The attention has been focused on the possibilities of formation of the digital economy in the country. The characteristic of the key concepts of non-linear models of the innovation process in the digital economy has been presented. Special attention has been paid to the level of development of information and communication technologies in the Russian economy. The main factors, contributing to the formation of the digital economy in Russia,have been noted

    Cryptosporidium has emerged as an important cause of diarrheal illness worldwide, especially amongst young children and patients with infectious or iatrogenic immune deficiencies. The authors describe a case of mild cryptosporidiosis in a well-nourished, immunocompetent, one-year-old child. Rapid clinical and parasitological improvement was observed after a 3-day course of nitazoxanide

    This work is part of a scientific research program whose objective is to prevent pitting corrosion of an open cooling circuit of a nuclear installation. Various corrosion inhibitors have been studied. The performances of pitting corrosion inhibition were discussed and compared on the basis of several criteria. The experimental data were collected in a large table and subjected to algorithms in order to construct models for predicting corrosion inhibition performance. We used four algorithms: Genetic Algorithm-Artificial Neural Network (GAANN); Least Squares-Support Vector Machine (LS-SVM), K Nearest Neighbors (KNN) and Regression Tree (RT). We optimized the data fraction reserved for learning and we sought to optimize the parameters specific to each algorithm. The efficiency of pitting inhibition increases in the following order: HCO3- < H2PO4- < CO32- < PO4-2 < PO4 3- < SiO3 2- < MoO4 2- < WO4 2-. Our results showed that the order of performance of the algorithms is: RT < KNN < LS-SVM < GA-ANN

    A Dialogue between the Hypoxia-Inducible Factor and the Tumor Microenvironment

    The hypoxia-inducible factor is the key protein responsible for the cellular adaptation to low oxygen tension. This transcription factor becomes activated as a result of a drop in the partial pressure of oxygen, to hypoxic levels below 5% oxygen, and targets a panel of genes involved in maintenance of oxygen homeostasis. Hypoxia is a common characteristic of the microenvironment of solid tumors and, through activation of the hypoxia-inducible factor, is at the center of the growth dynamics of tumor cells. Not only does the microenvironment impact on the hypoxia-inducible factor but this factor impacts on microenvironmental features, such as pH, nutrient availability, metabolism and the extracellular matrix. In this review we discuss the influence the tumor environment has on the hypoxia-inducible factor and outline the role of this factor as a modulator of the microenvironment and as a powerful actor in tumor remodeling. From a fundamental research point of view the hypoxia-inducible factor is at the center of a signaling pathway that must be deciphered to fully understand the dynamics of the tumor microenvironment. From a translational and pharmacological research point of view the hypoxia-inducible factor and its induced downstream gene products may provide information on patient prognosis and offer promising targets that open perspectives for novel “anti-microenvironment” directed therapies

    This paper presents measurements of the W+→Ό+ÎœW^+ \rightarrow \mu^+\nu and W−→Ό−ΜW^- \rightarrow \mu^-\nu cross-sections and the associated charge asymmetry as a function of the absolute pseudorapidity of the decay muon. The data were collected in proton--proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and correspond to a total integrated luminosity of 20.2~\mbox{fb^{-1}}. The precision of the cross-section measurements varies between 0.8% to 1.5% as a function of the pseudorapidity, excluding the 1.9% uncertainty on the integrated luminosity. The charge asymmetry is measured with an uncertainty between 0.002 and 0.003. The results are compared with predictions based on next-to-next-to-leading-order calculations with various parton distribution functions and have the sensitivity to discriminate between them.Comment: 38 pages in total, author list starting page 22, 5 figures, 4 tables, submitted to EPJC.
