Häberlin: the rule is that the wife takes the rank of herhusband and the children can inherit. A mismarriage is anexception to the rule, and must therefore follow from a clear law orbinding custom; and, in doubt, the rule prevails, not the exception.Häberlin was of the opinion that this could only happen by virtueof a law or binding custom. For him, the introduction of equalityrequirements by anyone other than the first owner could not be binding,because no one but him could change the succession rules and deprivepart of the issue of the original owner of their rights. Herejected the counter-example of introduction of primogeniture, sayingthat these did not deprive anyone of their rights, but only postponedthem (and potentially made them larger, since the second-born stands achance to inherit everything).

The conventional glucose measuring electrode based techniques are highly time consuming, need skilled people, proper laboratory set-up for testing. Seeing the cruciality of the glucose testing, there is need to explore real-time techniques. The main aim of this paper is to demonstrate a real-time label-free glucose sensor using microwave sensing technique. Currently we are working on various designs on coplanar waveguide transmission line to demonstrate microwave biosensor. The microwave biosensor is fabricated using microwave laminate board and polymer technology. In this, we proposed biosensor fabricated in-house making use of unconventional fabrication process without the need of cleanroom and costly equipments unlike most of the reported microwave sensors fabricated using conventional MEMS micromachining process. Secondly, the labeled sensing techniques may have an inaccuracy which can be overcome using label-free technique which may be highly useful for biomedical applications.

A.S. Fokas has a BSc in Aeronautics from Imperial College (1975), a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (1979) and an MD from the University of Miami, School of Medicine (1986).
In 1986, at the age of 33, he was appointed Professor and Chairman of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Clarkson University, USA. In 1996 he was appointed to a Chair in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College, UK. In 2002 he was appointed to the newly inaugurated Chair in Nonlinear Mathematical Science at the University of Cambridge, UK.
In 2000 he was awarded the Naylor Prize (the most prestigious Prize in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in UK; the last five earlier recipients were Sir Roger Penrose, Sir Michael Berry, Sir John Ball, F.P. Kelly and S.W. Hawking). In 2004 he was awarded the Aristeion Prize in Sciences of the Academy of Athens (the most prestigious Prize of the Academy given every four years to a single scholar of Greek origin chosen from science, engineering, or medicine). In 2005 he was elected a Professorial Fellow at Clare Hall and was also decorated as the Commander of the Order of Phoenix by the President of the Hellenic Republic. In 2006 he was awarded the Excellence Prize of the Bodossaki Foundation (this premier scientific Prize is awarded every two years to scientists of Greek origin, as chosen by an international committee chaired by a Nobel Laureate). In the period 2004-2008,he received honourary degrees from five Universities. In 2009 he was selected as a Guggenheim Fellow on the basis “of stellar achievement and exceptional promise for continued accomplishment”. In 2010, he was appointed “Ambassador of Hellenism” by the Prefecture of Athens and was also elected a Fellow of the European Academy of Science. He is the youngest member of the Academy of Athens and the first ever Applied Mathematician to be elected a full member to the Academy.
The main research interests of Vincenzo Barone are related to a theoretical microscopic approach for the study of structural, dynamic, electronic and spectroscopic properties of complex systems (materials, nanostructures, biomolecules, “soft matter”), as well as of their reactivity. This analysis is based on the development of an integrated tool for the accurate description of physical-chemical processes in condensed phases, including a general and powerful electronic model (the result of the development of original and effective approaches in the framework of the density functional theory), an accurate description of solute-solvent interactions (through mixed discrete-continuum models), and the inclusion of the most important effects of nuclear motions (vibrational averaging of physical-chemical observables, reaction rates, vibronic structures, slow motions). Particular attention has been devoted to obtaining a computational accuracy comparable to that attainable by experiments, without losing the possibility of an interpretation in terms of basic chemical-physical models and simple general rules. The focalization towards realistic systems has typically implied “multiscale” approaches, i.e. the adoption of several theoretical models suitable for the different scales of a specific phenomenon, and their integration into more global descriptions. Moreover, it has also motivated a constant interest for computer architectures and, in the last years, grid implementations. The research strategy, at the crossway of theoretical and computational chemistry, has aimed at the development of integrated computational tools, which, starting from accurate and cost-effective methods for electronic structure calculation, take next into account environmental effects by integrated discrete-continuum approaches, and nuclear motions by models ranging from classical Molecular Dynamics (MD) to both time-dependent (TD) and time-independent (TI) quantum dynamics. A strong feeling for the interpretation of experimental results is evidenced by long-standing collaborations with top-level experimental groups. A constant effort has been devoted to making theoretical developments available in form of general and easily accessible computational tools.
