    Abstract Introduction People who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid (dual eligibles) and who have disabilities and multiple chronic conditions (MCC) present challenges for treatment, preventive services, and cost-effective access to care within the US health system. We sought to better understand dual eligibles and their association with MCC, accounting for sociodemographic factors inclusive of functional disability category. Methods Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) data for 2005 through 2010 were stratified by ages 18 to 64 and 65 or older to account for unique subsets of dual eligibles. Prevalence of MCC was calculated for those with physical disabilities, physical plus cognitive disabilities, and all others, accounting for sociodemographic and health-related factors. Adjusted odds for having MCC were calculated by using logistic regression. Results Of dual eligibles aged 18 to 64, 53% had MCC compared with 73.5% of those aged 65 or older. Sixty-five percent of all dual eligibles had 2 or more chronic conditions, and among dual eligibles aged 65 or older with physical disabilities and cognitive limitations, 35% had 4 or more, with hypertension and arthritis the most common conditions. Dual eligibles aged 18 to 64 who had a usual source of medical care had a 127% increased likelihood of having MCC compared with those who did not have a usual source of care. Conclusion Attention to disability can be a component to helping further understand the relationship between health and chronic conditions for dual eligible populations and other segments of our society with complex health and medical needs

    Theoretical prediction of interference loading on aircraft stores: Part I - Subsonic speeds

    Get PDF
    Computer program is developed for theoretically predicting loading on pylon-mounted stores in subsonic compressible flow. Linear theory predicts flow field produced by aircraft wing, nose, inlet, and pylons. Program was written in FORTRAN IV for CDC 6000 computer

    Theoretical prediction of interference loading on aircraft stores: Part II - Supersonic speeds

    Linear theory is used, without two dimensional or slender body assumptions, to predict flow field produced by aircraft wing, nose, inlet, and pylons. Aircraft shock wave locations are predicted, and their effect on flow field is included through transformation of aircraft geometry. Program was written in FORTRAN IV for CDC 6400 computer

    Improved method for aerodynamic analysis of wing-body-tail configurations in subsonic and supersonic flow

    Get PDF
    Method permits analysis of noncircular bodies and calculation of wing-body interference effects in presence of body closure, two features not previously available. In addition, use of vortex distribution, having linear variation in streamwise direction, results in improved chordwise pressure distributions on wing and tail surfaces

    Generalised knot groups distinguish the square and granny knots (with an appendix by David Savitt)

    Given a knot K we may construct a group G_n(K) from the fundamental group of K by adjoining an nth root of the meridian that commutes with the corresponding longitude. These "generalised knot groups" were introduced independently by Wada and Kelly, and contain the fundamental group as a subgroup. The square knot SK and the granny knot GK are a well known example of a pair of distinct knots with isomorphic fundamental groups. We show that G_n(SK) and G_n(GK) are non-isomorphic for all n>1. This confirms a conjecture of Lin and Nelson, and shows that the isomorphism type of G_n(K), n>1, carries more information about K than the isomorphism type of the fundamental group. An appendix by David Savitt contains some results on representations of the trefoil group in PSL(2,p) that are needed for the proof.Comment: 25 pages, 5 figures, to appear in JKTR. v3: example of the target groups added; slight correction to the construction of the target groups; references updated; some changes to notation. v2: section 4.2 expanded to give overview of proo
