Degree spectra of real closed fields

Russell Miller, Victor Ocasio González
2018 Archive for Mathematical Logic  
For each noncomputable, computably enumerable set C, we produce a real closed C-computable subfield of R_0 with no computable copy.  ...  Then we build an archimedean real closed field with no computable copy but with a computable enumeration of the Dedekind cuts it realizes, and a computably presentable nonarchimedean real closed field  ...  For the greatest C s currently being enumerated, take the next available x i and start using it (plus a rational) to guide C s from now on.  ...

Spine Surgery Assisted by Augmented Reality: Where Have We Been?

Yanting Liu, Min-Gi Lee, Jin-Sung Kim
2022 Yonsei medical journal  
Our review briefly examines the history of AR, and enumerates different device application workflows in a variety of spinal surgeries.  ...  Spinal injection AR-assisted navigation 97.5% of AR-guided needle placements were either perfect or system acceptable without unsafe needle placements, and the time to final needle placement was substantially  ...  AR-guided percutaneous lumbar PSP was acceptable and more efficient than radiograph-guided placement, and the automatic-alignment method was as accurate as of the manual method, but more efficient.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
The proof tree in Figure 24 uses point placement several times, so we take this opportunity to present these applications as further examples.  ...  For the last 25 years, a particular collection of permutation classes has been perhaps the most important and influential in guiding the direction of research.  ...  Point Placement The justification that the point placement strategy is an equivalence strategy is technical and requires quite a bit of bookkeeping.  ...
