When leaving the Victoria airport the day earlier than our Colloquium, I observed a van of the Dunsmuir hotel marked with significant letters which I learn as "Alcohol Colloquium". I do frequently make such errors due to the international, informal, and careless means within which I learn a number of advertisements, and checked myself fast to learn it effectively as "Algol Colloquium". hundreds of thousands of fellow voters might simply make an identical mistake, and no apology might be anticipated. Even I learn and listen to the observe alcohol extra often than Algol, even if i need to say that Algols have given me extra excitement and less complications through the years; in that, notwithstanding, i'll be a singularity, and doubtless a pitiful one at that. Being appointed Chairman of the medical Organizing Committee, i'll be deemed to be a purer" Algolist" than different investigators, even though my diversity of energetic pursuits is way broader; and a similar is correct approximately all of the 28 invited audio system and all of the different individuals of the Colloquium. Our curiosity are strongly different, yet there are numerous solid purposes that introduced us jointly at this Colloquium.

This can be the best global convention for the presentation of the most recent advances in ion implantation, from the basics of ion-solid interactions to production implant apparatus. All papers have been peer-reviewed. Ion implantation is used to fabricate semiconductor units. fabrics houses are replaced through bombarding wafers with atoms, that are speeded up in an ion implanter.

Algols have apparently evolved fro. ass to its now more massive companion. ember of a subset of active Algol systems known as "SerpentidsN. As discussed by Space Science Reviews 50 (1989), 35-49. © 1989 by Kluwer Academic Publishers. 36 EDWARD F. GUINAN Mirek Plavec at this colloquium, Serpentids, named after WSerpentis, are active Algol-type systems which display strong emission lines in the ultraviolet and are presumably undergoing vigorous mass eKchange and mass loss. Beta Lyr, however, is a unique binary system with many puzzling properties even though it has been observed more frequently than Algol.

5. The present data base also shows evidence for temporal variability in the Ha emission intensity, of the same magnitude and time scale as in TT Hya. RZ Oph (P=261~93, F5e + K-M) was most recently analyzed by Knee, et a1. (1986). 5 times the continuum intensity. Although the disk in this system is quite massive, it displays many of the same properties seen in systems of shorter period. 5 shown in Figure 10. 25 P leo (A3 V, vsin i = 115 km/s) o~------~------------L-----------~----------~ 65<10 6560 6580 6600 Wavelength (A) Figure 9.

PETERS DISCUSSION Rucinski commented on the desirability of expressing emission-line strengths in absolute flux units and also enquired if there was comparable information available from any other Balmer line, since knowledge of the Balmer decrement would be physically significant. Peters replied that she intended eventually to convert to absolute flux units, but she was often handicapped by the uncertainties in our knowledge of the distances of the stars.
