Activated neutrophils attacking the wall of various blood vessel are key features in these diseases, leading to bleeding, occlusion, ischaemia and tissue necrosis. This latter finding is reflected in the term necrotising vasculitis. In this paper, we present a case of eosinophil ganulomatous polyangiitis (EGPA,... tovább »

[Aliennes and alien language in the Arrival (film)]

HORVÁTH Lajos, GÁSPÁR László Ervin, HORVÁTH Henrietta

[The paper aims to provide an integrative analysis of a science fiction film, Arrival. Even in the context of previous sci-fi films and their criticism, it is hard to define the genre of the movie. Maybe the movie Interstellar can be considered as the closest work. Suddenly appearing Aliens and the communication with them is the central problem of the movie. With the resource of context-free grammar and cosmological time-perception we analyze the situation outlined in the story. Can mechanism... tovább »
