5.A1.1. Spousal property relations – marriage contract. /A. Gugava/. Law and Economics. – 2009. – #1. – pp. 74-84. – Geo; res.: Geo, Eng., Fr.

The work depicts the legal nature of a contract and its importance in modern Georgian reality, contract form, subjects of contractual relations, issues of their legal subjectivity, rights and obligations of the parties and legal bases for contract termination. Marriage contract as a new institution has some particular characteristics; it responds to the requirements existing under conditions of a market economy and occupies its place together with other legal relations; although it should be noted that there are only few cases of marriage contract conclusions. As for the issue of acceptance by the subjects of Georgian marital relations, whether spouses define their property rights under such a contract, this is their right and also depends on whether the society will receive it pursuant to the Georgian character and traditions.

5.A1.2. Georgian and French semi-presidential governments (comparative analysis). /K. Pridonashvili/. Law and Economics. – 2009. #1. – pp. 6-22. – Geo; res.: Geo., Eng., Fr.

The French semi-presidential government in relation to Georgia is discussed. The final part of the work proposes an idea that the democratic principles that are directly or indirectly connected with the concept of separation of powers are not comprehensively reflected in the modern Georgian Constitution as in the French model. Correspondingly, the parliamentary government will not be a panacea unless the principles of checks and balances, replacement and continuity are not appropriately reflected in it at the proper level, also such an election mechanism is developed the fairness of which suits all the political substances. Therefore the authors believe that the assertion as if the semi-presidential government form has allegedly proved to be unsuitable for Georgia is a premature one, for the country has never had its classical form.

5.A1.3. Some aspects of dealing with administrative claims by administrative organs. /A. Chankseliani/. Law and Economics. – 2009. – #1. – pp. 47-51. – geo.; res.: geo., eng., fr.

The General Administrative Code of Georgia was adopted on July 23, 1999. The general provisions and main principles of the activity of administrative bodies are defined by this Code. It contains the rules of issue and execution of administrative and legal acts, as well as the consideration of administrative complaints and statements and rules of the preparation, making and execution of administrative arrangements. Each of the issues is of special importance and urgency in terms of building the contemporary legal system in Georgia. The object of this article is one of the steps of the administrative complaint discussion procedure. Generally, the administrative complaint is the measure to protect legal rights and interests of legal or private entities.

5.A1.5. Agreement conclusion features in Georgian and German laws. /S. Dughashvili/. Law and Economics. – 2009. – #1. – pp. 62-73. – geo.; res.: geo., eng., fr.

The purpose of the work is to highlight the peculiar features of making agreements in the Georgian and German law. The work applies a comparative research method existing in the international comparative jurisprudence and deals with the main juridical problems existing in both the Georgian and German law, including the issues and peculiarities concerning the will of the parties upon making an agreement that characterize an offer and acceptance. The work also encompasses such a question as determination of a form of agreement. In connection with a written agreement, being made by completing one document, the Georgian and German laws are characterized of a definite distinction. True, the making of two agreements on the transfer of a thing to another party is the legal guarantee of the parties, we, however, thinks that the regulation of such relationships under consolidated norms would be the no less legal guarantee. It should be mentioned here that in spite of the great resemblance between the two legislations of the countries, they are still characterized of definite peculiarities being clearly demonstrated in the work on the basis of consideration of the legal regulation in connection with the agreement making.

National security has an absolute priority compared to other problems of politics. Science-based security system serves for preservation and strengthening of the basic values of the country: State sovereignty, safety, territorial integrity, and culture uniqueness and applies to the special governance by higher state organs. One of the main reasons of the specificity of Georgian State security problems is its geopolitical and geoeconomical location. One of the main directions and priority of Georgian national security problem is the integration of Georgia into European and Euro Atlantic political, economic and security systems.

As a result of the of social and economic processes developed in Georgia in the 1990s, the demographic situation in Oni region has worsened. Presently we can include Oni in the demographically ‘dying” regions. The determinants of the mentioned fact: the unprecedented decline of population, catastrophic decline of fertility, very high stage of demographic aging, unprecedented high indices of demography burden. To regulate the existing hardest situation, serious attention should be paid to socio-economic and cultural development, without which it would be impossible to reach the desirable reproduction regime and population settlement on the place. The available mineral, landscape, recreational and other resources, thei purposeful exploitation of which will contribute to the improvement of demographic situation in the region, should be reasonably used.

Of all the global problems looming on our common horizon that of population growth comes first. It sets the scene for considering major issues of social and economic development, of science, education and art, of growth and security. In dealing with these matters, a new way has to be found to comprehend the challenge of change. For one has to go beyond the agenda of demography and economics, sociology and anthropology, and see mankind as an evolving system. Without a broad vision of our past it is impossible to understand the present predicament of mankind, the crisis now facing us in so many dimensions of life, and project our future development. In this New World, not dictated by numerical growth, education and science will become the main issues in a knowledge society of an information-dominated world. It is then, when the old outnumber the young, to be sustainable, a new system of values is to develop.

5.A3.2. Role of economic security indicators in the state regulation of market. /T. Murghulia/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 20-28. – geo.; res.: eng.

The Centre for Economics Problems Research has implemented a project ‘’Development of Economic Regulatory Institutes in Georgia’’ with the financial support of Friedrich Ebert Foundation. One of the major research issues was the role of economic security indicators in market regulation. Several indicators proved that reforms implemented under the aegis of libertarianism in Georgia were unsuccessful. Nowadays, most problems in the Georgian economy are directly related to ignoring the economic security factors in the economic regulation policy. Assurance of economic security is the exclusive authority of the State and all the developed countries in the world pay special attention to this issue.

5.A3.3. Externalities and “abatement costs”. /R. Asatiani/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 29-33. – geo.; res.: eng.

Externalities have positive as well as negative expressions and are not reflected in the set of prices. Positive expression is connected with interest while negative one – with expenses. Sometimes the area of manifestation of externalities is very wide and encompasses the whole society. Many examples from the recent developments in Georgia can be presented as an illustration. Namely, at present the attraction of foreign investments is considered as one of the main objectives of economic development of Georgia while it would be much more important to direct the whole effort of the government at creating alternative means of savings and capital mobilization within the country. Foreign investments should be considered only as a source of replenishment of internal savings deficit of the country and not as the motive power of economic development. Such policy, alongside with positive effects, revealed particularly negative externalities which were, in the first place, manifested in the deficit of internal savings of Georgia. At the same time, the banking system, which depends on the dynamics of international markets of capital, has not sufficient amount of loan capital to provide internal demands of the country’s economic development. This is negatively reflected on the economic activity, on the country’s real sector and, together with many other negative effects, leaves export potential (e.g. agriculture) of Georgia without bank financing. This is the reason that the index of bank loan settlement for agriculture in 2007 was just 5.14%, although earlier, for example, in 2005 it was only 0.75%.

5.A3.4. The necessity of state regulation of the institutional environment under the post-communist transformation conditions. /N. Kakulia/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 34-39. – geo.; res.: eng.

The work considers the necessity of transformation of existing institutions and their further merger. It clearly outlines that the establishment of balanced institutions should be based on specifics of each country and should play the stabilization role in the country’s transformation period. An important part in this process should be played by the State, whose specific activities should be dictated by the national peculiarities and the state of economy in the exiting period.

5.A3.5. Market economy, socially oriented market and institutionalism. /A. Kuratashvili/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 40-42. – rus.; res.: eng.

The work critically discusses the current theoretical views on socially oriented market economy. Within the effective functioning of social orientation of a market economy and the society as a whole, the particular attention is devoted to the legal factor, since the establishment and setting into action of the relevant socio-economic mechanisms and their practical realization are impossible without the appropriate legal basis and legal mechanisms, i.e. without the legal factor. The legal factor, in the author’s opinion, should play a particular role in the protection of socol-economic interests and other rights and freedoms of a person – both of the manufacturer and the consumer that represents the precondition of efficient functioning of a market economy and its social orientation.

5.A3.6. Globalization and regional integration: unity and controversial character. /E. Eteria/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 47-52. – rus.; res.: eng.

Certain internal contradictions are observable between the processes determining the modern world economy – globalization and regional integration. Hence, one might think of a definite incompatibility of the globalization and regional development and some cases of their completely controversial character. The regional integration process is a complex economic-political phenomenon developed on the basis of the intensification of economic relations, where the positive economic factors (international trade, capital flow and labor migration) of integration, together with the political goals of national states, create a symbiosis and represent the main prerequisite for decreasing negative aspects of globalization. One of the main ways for increasing the positive effects of globalization and declining its negative aspects is the deepening of integration processes. Integrated associations established on the basis of separately taken economic efficiency and political expediency cannot ensure the successful functioning of integrated groups, their transition to a higher level of integration and, in the end, the minimization of the negative aspects of globalization.

The article considers labor migration as the globalization-concomitant process. It outlines the trends lately developed in the process of migration. The authors critically analyze the given pattern of economic benefit and express the opposing view; in particular, they believe that the economic benefit is not everything, that Georgia has other far more important values being threatened by the globalization process, because of which highly skilled specialists leave the country and the local science is dying.

5.A3.8. Globalization and management problems. /M. Kharkheli/. Economist. – 2009. – # 2. – pp. 58-62. – geo.; res.: eng.

Georgia is already involved in the globalization circuit. The country has an open economy and its business-subjects are open as well. Although Georgian companies are still at the initial stage of globalization (mainly the first or second), their marching towards the third and fourth stages is irreversible and therefore they have to start at once the training of global managers. The article analyses the qualities characterizing global managers, where and how to raise their skills, how and why to study the culture of other countries, etc., gives a self-appraisal test for global management.

The main purpose of bringing investments is to raise effectiveness of the company activity. The result of investment should be the growth of the company assets and other indicators of its activities. The company should take various steps to attract more investments and to fully satisfy the investors’ demands. In order to raise its investment attractiveness, it is advisable that a clear-cut system of activities for raising investment attractiveness with its individual peculiarities based on the state of capital market be established. The implementation of such a program makes it possible to speed up the attraction of funds and cut down costs. It should be mentioned that the system of possible activities does not require essential expenditures, but its realization will the raise the investors’ interest towards the company as well the company performance effectiveness.

5.A3.14. Accumulation of the market power and indexes thereof. /Sh. Gogiashvili/. Economist. – 2009.- #3.- pp. 27-30. – geo., res.: eng.

In the context of the economy, the market power means a company’s (companies’) potential to set prices above the competition equilibrium level for an extended period of time and gain a super profit. There exist various assessment tools of the market power. Some experts of the competition field give preference to the structural approach to the market power, which implies the determination of quantity of companies and the comparison of their shares in a total market (market shares are associated with the market power index). The market power index (so far as treated as the economic category), the economy of determination of the market volume and structure thereof, as well as various aspects of behaviour of agents within such market are directly connected to the determination of dominance of economic agents at a relevant commodity market and the accumulation of market power by them, the latter being directly connected to the legal aspects of the competition policy and laws. The determination of shares of economic agents and the assessment of their market powers play the crucial role in business discussions carried on by the authorities in the field of competition, as well as in the course of court hearings and decision-making regarding unlawful activities of monopolist economic agents and mergers and/or deals limiting the freedom of trade and competition.

The paper deals with the use of leasing in Georgia and regards it as a form of assistance to small enterprises. Financial leasing is considered to be a specific form of capital investment. Unlike traditional bank credit, it enables companies to have necessary basic means without synchronous expenditures. Financial leasing is beneficial enough as it takes into consideration the peculiarities of leaseholder’s activity, increases the financing amount of the operations and ensures fiscal advantages. Leasing will significantly simplify the problem of main credit risk of financial support to companies. Due to synchronous use of leasing and insurance operations, investment conditions will become attractive for investors, insurance companies and especially small enterprises.

5.A3.21. Peculiarities of fiscal effect in Balatsky model. /J. Ananiashvili/. Economist. – 2009.- #3.- pp.14-25. – geo., res.: eng.

The article deals with the macroeconomic model (by Evgeny Balatsky) that estimates the first and second type Laffer fiscal points. In this model the major role is played by the Cobb-Douglas production function with changeable elasticity coefficients. The analysis of this model and its econometrical versions has shown that this type of the model has some shortcomings and contradictions. This circumstance points out that even the generalized Cobb-Douglas function, as it is shown in (1)-(4) model, can not be considered as the universal model representing the influence of institutional factor (particularly taxes) on economy. Moreover, the production function and the function shown in (1)-(4) model are transformative models. On the basis of this model it is not proper to characterize the economic subjects’ behavior, which is determined by increasing or reducing taxes.

5.A3.28. Foundations of the state economic policy. /M. Gelashvili/. Economist. – 2009. - #3. – pp. 85-90. – geo., res.: eng.

At the modern stage, the state economic policy is a constituent part of reproduction. It enables to solve different tasks, such as the stimulation of economic growth, employment regulation, progressing of regional and branch structures, support of export. Specific directions, forms and scales of the state regulation of economy are conditioned by the character and urgency of the state economic and social problems in the given period. The state economic policy should have concrete aims and based on the strategies providing the possibility of achieving the set aims. The country’s being in transition does not decrease the necessity of a strictly established strategy of economic development. Exactly under the strictly developed and determined economic policy conditions it is possible to influence the physical and human capital extent. If the capital rewserve in economy grows, the country’s conomic potential will grow too, e.g. the economy is capable of creating more products and services in the future.

In the sphere of venture and business angel investments, a company growth and development process is usually divided into stages. In marking out the development stages, a risk level and its character play the the decisive role. The marking out of project development stages is gaining great significance in contemporary business. It bears a distinct practical load for at the various stages the project is financed from the various sources. This phenomenon has been known as “investment chain“. The firm’s value is in nonlinear relationship with its development stages, which, naturally, proceeds from particular features of the firm and different and complicated nature of its development stages. As a rule, in case of business success, the firm achieves the superior growth during the several last years. According to the investors’ slang, the diagram that describes the above phenomenon is known as ‘hockey stick“.

The transfer allocation criteria, their types, equalization forms are established, attention being paid to the criteria used in the calculation formula of equalization transfers. Problems existing in the transfer allocation area and the shortcomings of the equalization transfer formula are discussed. The matter concerns the “good will” of the central government in allocating transfers to local self-government bodies. The problems associated with the political decisions of the government rather than on science-based study and analysis results are discussed. Also considered are the ways of solving the existing problems, studying and sharing the best foreign practices in the area. The work concludes on the importance of the correct transfer policy in the country’s fiscal and socio-economic stabilization.

The article deals with an economic analysis of the critical situation observable in Georgian agriculture, which states that these problems cannot be solved only within the agrarian sector because they require the working out and implementation of a system of complex measures. In particular, a stable production and non-production infrastructure of farming development shall be created, where the State should act as the initiator. At the same time, the economic motivation of cattle breeders in rural areas through the reasonable use of financial, credit, insurance and other levers should be carried out. In similarity to many countries of the world, the agrarian sector in Georgia also needs to be regulated by the State.

Any society requires the certain order and that shall be deemed as one of the key arguments and conditions for grounding existence of a state. The economic order plays the crucial role in the common order. In terms of a market economy, the former is nothing more or less than the competition order. On the basis of the foregoing, the competition economic policy, i.e. the competition order policy, plays the crucial role in the economic policy of a country if such country employs market relations. So far as the economic order policy is determined by the equilibrium of the competition order and the social order, along with optimization of the economic growth indexes, conduct of employment supportive economic policy, formation of the common insurance system and establishment and enactment of the pension scheme, the equilibrium of elements of the economic order shall be changed in favor of the competition order. That is quite natural, since one of the key advantages of the market economy against the administrative-command model is the existence of the competition order proper.

To assess the winning of the customer relationship management (CRM) system, it is necessary that the costs on its making and operation as well as the expected operation-related effect be adequately determined. The making of investments in the CRM system implies the customer loyalty as the main indicator of the marketing asset. Different methods of assessing the CRM system are employed in practice by such well-known world consulting companies as IT the Boston Consulting Group, Right Now Nucleus Research, Nvigorate LDT, etc. We believe that the study and application of these methods would be very useful for modern firms in improving management. An increase in the revenue performance and dividends of a company will necessarily results in a rise in the cost of shares and, accordingly, in the company capitalization. The rise in the cost of shares is also secured by the factor that the formed marketing assets are of a long-term nature and they will, correspondingly, bring in additional revenues and positively influence the company asset value.

Since the second half of 2008, the world economy has been experiencing an increasingly sharp, synchronous economic slowdown that is proving to be far worse than expected in most economies. Global trade as well as industrial output in key industrial regions is contracting at a double-digit pace. For the year as whole, GDP expanded by just 0.9% in 2008 in the EU (0.8% in the euro area), a marked deceleration from previous year (+2.9% and 2.6%, respectively). The significant deterioration in economic activity in 2008 was broad-based across sectors. Capacity utilization in the EU and euro-area manufacturing sector slumped to 75% at the beginning of 2009. While value added growth in construction was still positive in the first half of 2008 in both the euro area and the EU, it activity fell in the second half, dragged down by the cooling in real-estate markets. Value added in the services sector – which represents 70% of total output – rose by almost 1% in 2008. Disruptions in money markets led banks to tighten lending conditions. The availability of alternative sources of funding was also curtailed. Investment growth declined rapidly in 2008. The external environment deteriorated significantly during 2008, aggravated by the financial crisis and the severe strains on banking systems and credit conditions worldwide, along with the fall in global production and trade. The massive slowdown in world output and trade is being caused by the decline in demand for capital and durable consumer goods, which have relatively high import content. For the year 2009 as a whole, exports are set to slump by around 13% in both the EU and the euro area. The decline in imports is also expected to be strong, particularly in 2009 (-10%), with a more moderate contraction persisting in 2010 (-1%). The current recession is affecting all demand components except government consumption and public investment.

The global economic system recession has reached Georgia as well. The crisis has damaged almost every field of our economy, including car business. As a result of the August 2008 events and aggravation of the crisis, imports of used-cars have significantly reduced. According to importers, there are more salesmen than customers at the market. Along with the demand fall, one of biggest problems is the restriction on bank installments. The cost of car customs clearance needs to be reviewed as well. In order to overcome the crisis, it is necessary that the business be stimulated and actively supported by the State.

Issues of generation of orthogonal functions (polynomial functions) in the form of uninterrupted signals is often raised when solving various scientific research tasks, particularly those of the mathematical physics. Orthogonal polynomial functions are topical and widely applied in the case of approximation of the signals represented in various analogous and discrete forms. Laguerre, Legendre, Hermite, Chebyshev and other orthogonal polynomials are widely applied in practice. Our objective is to elaborate simple and relatively precise methods of simultaneous generation of the orthogonal polynomials as uninterrupted signals. This is discussed in detail after the example of the Hermite polynomials. The obtained result allows constructing a simpler and more precise scheme on integrating operational amplifier, different from the existing ones. This scheme requires application of only a single operational amplifier to generate the next orthogonal polynomial.

This work is dedicated to the development of round and circular plates' calculation methods on the axis symmetrical vibrations. Discussed is the problem of calculation of plates located on both on free as well as on the elastic Winkler foundation for own axis symmetrical harmonious vibrations, given the effects of a displacement in the direction of the plate’s axis of symmetry, rotational masses inertia, expansion (compression), shear and bend deformations, also of the longitudinal forces. The methods are based on the Kirkhhof hypothesis with the difference that after deformation the linear elements of a plate may not be normal in relation to the deformed intermediate surface. The plate material is elastic and is subject to the Hooke’s law. The plate deformations are small and therefore the use of approximate depictions of curvatures is possible.

The article deals with the most complicated nonlinear task of estimation of oscillatory processes of mechanical system (machine units) given the elestoplastic deformation of their connecting parts. The existing methods of calculation are shown to make us to calculate own frequencies of the system and constants of integration at each change of the character of deformation, which is rather difficult and laborious, especial if the heterogeneity of entry conditions is taken into account. To simplify the task solution, proposed is a method of the solution construction where the valid system is replaced with equivalent discrete-linear system, by a chain of discrete weights connected by elastic parts. This excludes the operation of definition of constants of integration. The elastoplastic properties of the material are obtained by the closed polygonal loop. In this connection, the integration of differential equations is made on linear sites of this diagram given an interface of the solution function and their derivatives. The method allows transforming the non-uniform entry conditions in the homogeneous ones by their representation as equivalent external loads. On the basis of a concrete example of calculation of dynamic loads in the mechanical system containing parts with the elastoplastic properties, it is shown that the maximal values of stress arising in such parts are 15% lower than the maximal loads arising in the parts with elastic properties, i.e. without taking into account the plastic properties.

The work proves experimentally that the offered method of spectrophotometrical measurements consisting in the comparative analysis of spectrograms of the annealed and non-annealed samples of active phosphate glasses (APG) of the same thickness enables additional characterization of the activated glasses; in particular, observable are changes in the scattered light spectral distribution induced by the thermal treatment, whose average scattered light intensity is reduced according to the ~ 1/λ regularity. Also the peculiarities of the fine annealing are shown to contribute to the formation of clusters in the glass structure in the different spectral domains. The original laboratory device for determining the glass softening temperature Tg is also described, by means of which measured was Tg of the following APG marks: КГСС-1684 – Tg=5540C ± 3,00C and ГЛС-22 – Tg=482 0C ± 3,00C.

By calculations of the thermal balance of the Earth it is shown that about half of the solar energy falling on the terrestrial surface is spent for evaporation of water from surfaces of oceans, seas and land. Part of it is absorbed by green plants, but thermal energy emitted because of human activity is by four orders less than the energy received by the Earth from the Sun. It is also noted that the infrared radiation of the terrestrial surface absorbed by molecules of CO2 cannot evoke the greenhouse effect. It is shown that alterations of average-annual temperature of the Earth are characterized of relaxation oscillations with the period of 5-8 years. The relaxation oscillations are caused by the negative feedback between parameters of the Earth and energy received by the Earth from the Sun.

Regulation of mass-transfer processes has assumed a new matter in connection with a serious environmental pollution by ions of heavy metals as a result of operating of electroplating shops. This is expressed in the elaboration of the conception for obtaining of metallic coatings from the solutions of low-content of heavy metals without worsening of product quality. In the paper an effect of solution pH on the diffusion coefficient of Cu(II) and Cd(II) in ammoniate solutions has been considered as well as in solutions containing some symmetric and asymmetric bidentate ligands. It is shown that at complex formation of Cu(II) with ammonia, solution pH practically doesn't effect on the diffusion coefficient value of Cu(II). At the study of chelate amino-alcoholates in the series of mono-, di-, triethanolamine an expected reduce of diffusion coefficient of the complex of Cu(II) wasn't found as an amount of alcohol groups increases. This fact was explained by ability of Cu(II) to form a polynuclear complexes with di- and triethanolamine. In contrast to Cu(II), going from monoethanolaminate to diethanolaminate, diffusion coefficient of the complex of Cd(II) reduces nearly by a factor 2.5, which is probably due to the fact that Cd(II) forms only monodentate complexes with mentioned aminoalcohols. Because of this fact, a two-fold increase of alcohol group number, going from monoethanolaminate to diethanolaminate, has essential effect on friction force of complex ion with a medium as a result of an increase of the amount of hydrogen bonds of complex ion with solvent molecules. Comparison of diffusion coefficient values of chelate complex of Cu(II) with a-alanine, glycine and cerine has shown evidently a preferential role of ligand hydrogen bonds with a solvent (water) molecules and secondary role of its sizes in the deceleration of ion movement in viscous medium.

Concentration of hydrogen sulfide in sample waters is 0.8-1.0 mg/l (solution 1.) and 6.0- 6.5mg/l (solution 2.). Change of physical and chemical characteristics of membranes takes place in the first 10 days and has complicated character. Temperature do not influence this change. Change of physical and chemical characteristics of membranes (absolute exchange capacity, reduction of selectivity and resistance) do not exceed 10%. Accordingly, MA-40 and MK- 40 ion-exchange membranes can be applied for electrodialysis treatment of waters containing hydrogen sulfide.

5.B2.33. Sulphur cycle in the nature. /M. Kikalishvili, N. Gvinianidze, N. Chkhartishvili/. Novation. – 2008. – #3. – pp. 77-84. – geo.; res.: geo., rus., eng.

When the water phase was formed on the Earth the whole amount of sulphur was combined in the form of sulphids. During the long period of time, through the action of water and carbonic (IV) gas sulphur, hydrogen was formed. The latter was oxidized and sulphur was isolated. Sulphur received was oxidized by forming sulphuric acid first and sulphur acid later. The sulphur acid received affected carbonates obtaining calcium sulphat as a result. Calcium sulphate was taken to the seas and oceans by water and through centuries a thick sulphate layer was formed. In the nature not only oxidation process look place but the reduction as well – sulphur was reduced to sulphuretted hydrogen. In the deep layers of the Earth calcium sulphate through the effect of methane isolated sulphuretted hydrogen. Isolated sulphuretted hydrogen was oxidized on the surface of the Earth again by isolation of sulphur and the cycle continued. Plants get sulphur necessary for protein synthesis from soil soluble sulphates. From plants the proteins are transported to the animal bodies lacking the ability of protein synthesis from sulphates. Part of the sulphur absorbed b> plants is gathered in the roots in the form of sulphate. The main part of the sulphates moves from the roots to the xylem vessels and is transported to the young growing parts of the plant where it is involved in the process of metabolism and loses the ability of transportation. Reduced forms of the sulphate (sulphur containing aminoacids) can move from the leaves to the growing plant parts of the leaves as well as to the places where substances are stored through phloem. In the seeds sulphur is presented in the reduced form and in the process of germination is transformed into a partially oxidized form. The concentration of sulphur in major part of the compounds is presented in the reduced form. Organic sulphur is met in the forms of plant and animal residues in the soil and due to saprophitic microorganisms undergoes the process of the mineralization resulting in isolation of sulphur hydrogen. Considering abovementioned, it can be concluded that in the nature continuous sulphur cycle takes place: Sulfates proteins sulphur hydrogen sulphur –– sulfates

The purpose of research is optimization of the process of leaching of barium sulfide from restored barium sulfate lye. The influence of four factors is investigated (temperature, a parity of liquid and solid, contents of barium sulfide in furnace and durations) on leaching quality and concentration of barium sulfide in a solution. With the help of experiments, on the basis of a method of an abrupt ascension on the fourth step the desirable result is achieved. The quality of barium sulfide leaching is 92,03; the concentration of sulfide of barium in a solution - 118g/l; temperature (x1 = 700C; the parity of liquid and solid (x2 = 3.80:1, (x3 = 16.5. To raise the leaching quality, two-stage leaching was carried out by the countercurrent principle which censured 98,5% leaching quality, 115-120g/l barium sulfide content. By studying the process of leaching of the restored weight, major factors and the optimum areas for high-quality leaching and concentration are determined.

Medicinal plants and the phyto-preparations obtained from herbs have been used in treatment as well as in preventive health care against almost all human diseases long since. Development of chemistry, especially of organic chemistry, has led to the implementation of synthetic pharmaceutical remedies in medical practice. Chemotherapy acquired a great importance. Yet phytotherapy still maintains its position. These days phyto-drugs consumed in our country comprise 40% of the medical preparations. They have substantial advantage over the synthetic preparations as when taking the phyto-drugs patient gets the whole complex of the relative compounds that bring much more benefits compared with the synthetic means. In the last few years the utmost pollution of the environment made the listed matters very relevant: in what conditions should the herbs be collected; whether they are good for medical purposes considering ecological factors or they may conversely cause contra­indication. For this purpose the studies were carried to determine radionuclide concentration in some .it the drug plants (common knotgrass, lady's thumb, laurel, common plantain, common wormwood, coltsfoot, bur-marigold) grown in the surroundings of Kutaisi. The concentration of radionuclides varies in different parts of the plants. Among research plants the value of 0.011 radionuclide per hour was observed only in the roots of coltsfoot. The concentration of radionuclides is higher in flowers (from 0.008 to 0.017 radionuclides per hour).

Antiradical efficiency of 31 standard phenolic compounds, including simple phenols, hydroxybenzoic acids, aldehydes, hydroxy-cinnamic acids and coumarins has been studied by means of a stable free radical, 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazyl (DPPH•). It was shown that phenolic compounds are potential binding agents of free radicals, and their activity with respect to DPPH• is defined by chemical structure of their molecules. Among phenolic compounds, esculetin, pyrogallolcarboxylic acid, gallic acid, caffeic acid, protocatechuic acid, pyrogallol and protocatechuic aldehyde have high antiradical efficiency.

Oil-destructing strains of microscopic fungi were isolated from oil-polluted territories of Georgia and identified in the collection of Durmishidze Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology as a result of screening. 10 strains with high oil-destructing abilities were selected. Conditions of cultivation of high active oil-destructor strains have been established. In the case of application of destructor strains – Chaetomium sp. J 2-2 and Trichoderma viride J3-1 under laboratory and field conditions the extent of oil destruction in oil-polluted black and red soils made 85-90%. This indicates the high destructive activity of the strains and makes possible their application in bioremediation technologies of oil-polluted soils. According to high bio-degrading activity of the studied fungi, the technological scheme of bio-remediation of the polluted soils and obtaining of bio-preparations was elaborated.

Assays of screening genetically modified organisms (GMO) were developed using dried powders as certified reference materials containing 0-5% Roundup Ready soybean and maize Bt-176 as well as seeds of 100% Roundup Ready Soya. Genomic DNAs were extracted by Qiagen DNeasy plant mini kit. Amplification quality of DNAs was assessed by plant specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) appropriate for detection of chloroplast genome conserved sequences. The PCRs corresponding to 35S promoter and the NOS terminator revealed the presence of transgenic material in all GMO containing certified reference materials. No amplification signal was exhibited in negative water and non-GM samples. The high sensitivity of 0.1% GMO was achieved for screening methods. The results obtained show that DNA-based assays, described in this study, permit reliable, sensitive and rapid qualitative detection of genetically modified organisms.

Microsporangia dehiscence, timing and duration of pollination have been studied in 3 Cedrus species growing at the Tbilisi Botanical Garden. Observations conducted in 2008 revealed that pollination time overlapped in C. atlantica, C. libani and pollen release starts about one month earlier than in C. deodara. To characterize and discriminate species, which are genetically closely related, morphometric analysis of microstrobili was carried out, using 7 morphological parameters. Morphological traits of male cones differ enough to be useful for identification of Himalayan cedars from species of Mediterranean origin. The program SPSS 13.0 was employed for statistical evaluation of measurement results by means of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Discriminant Function Analysis (DFA).

The work aims at identifying genetic activity of pesticide zineb, on delayed soybean seeds of different age. One- two-, and three-year seeds of the soybean (Glycine max) genetic line L65-1237 have been used in the trial. The seeds were subjected to the action of agent zineb of various concentrations (0.02%, 0.04%, 0.06%, 0.08% and 0.1%) at 24-hour exposure. Induced somatic mutations were registered on the heterozygote (Yiiyii) seedling leaves. In the seedlings developed from one-year seed, zineb induced only mutation changes. The direct mutation induction was carried out with much higher frequency in comparison with the back mutation. In the seedlings developed from two- and three-year seeds, zineb induced both direct and back mutations with a higher frequency as compared with one-year seed seedlings. The mitotic crossing-over occurs with high frequency. The “dose-effect” phenomenon was expressed. The age growth was found to be positively correlated with the mitotic crossing-over induction which is a result of the genetic material destabilization.

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of Fcγ receptors (FcγR) in vitro, in phagocytosis of hormone-antibody complexes formed after immunization with the mutant hCGβ(R68E). Native, FITC labeled hCG was added to the sera from mutant hCGβ(R68E) immunized rabbits. The suspensions of phagocytic cells were selectively incubated with monoclonal antibodies to FcγRI, FcγRII, FcγRIII and the complement receptor 3 in order to block their functions and phagocytosis was visualized by flow cytometry. We show that the phagocytosis of immune complexes containing anti-hCGβ(R68E) sera of rabbits and native hCG molecules by monocytes and neutrophils is mediated by FcγRI(CD64) and FcγRIII(CD16) respectively in cooperation with the complement receptor 3 (CR3).

Relation of erythrocytic group antigen composition with pulmonary tuberculosis was studied. Immunoserological methods with test-systems of anti -AB, -B, -A, -D, -CD(G), -C, -c, -E, -Ce, -e, -K, -M, -N specificities, standard erythrocytes of O(I), A(II), B(III) groups and serum were used. Obtained data were treated statistically. It was revealed that O(I) and B(III) group carriers are reliably sensitive to pulmonary tuberculosis, but A(II) group carriers less sensitive. High concentration of p(M) allele was recorded in tubercular patients, and vice versa, concentration of q(N) allele is higher (0.35) in control group. We might say that carrying of N-allele is somehow “defensive” feature. High distribution frequency of D-antigen was noted in patients. Reliable high frequency of CC was registered in patients, whereas distribution frequency of Cc and cc is higher in control group. Majority of consumptive patients (72.0±4.8%) is M-antigen carrier, which is explained by sensitivity of this antigen to tuberculosis, while the portion of N phenotypic groups is relatively higher in control group (21.0±4.07%).

Protection of a dental canal by filling it with special substances represents a common problem in maxillofacial surgery. It has been determined that definite species of pathogenic and conditionally-pathogenic microorganisms including Staphylococcus, E. coli, Streptococcus and Candida-type fungi in association with these bacteria dominate in alveus. Study of microflora of oral cavity is very important in periodontitis to avoid post-operative complications. Based on the above, it is etiologically significant to create an osteorepairing, osteoinductive as well as anti-inflammatory composite, which will contain the substances with all those characteristics. The novelty of the given work is to incorporate bacteriophage into a composite as the best natural non-allergic tool in dealing with the infections, where antibiotics failed. In case of phage application the development of resistance is observed less frequently.

Optimum alloying of heat resisting alloys of the system Fe-Cr-Al by rare-earth metals (0.3-0.5 wt%) leads to a change of the mechanism and morpholog of a scale growth of these alloys that favourably affects adhesion of barrier oxide layers and durability of the metal matrix. A major factor influencing adhesion of the scale is prevention of voids on an alloy/scale interface and formation of pin microfastenings near the same surface. Considering the conversion probability of pins into ways of the facilitated diffusion of oxygen, it is not advisable to obtain a big number of dimensional pins.

On the basis of field observation, analysis of boring and geophysical data is shown that formation of Tbilisi olistostromes of Middle Eocene age was connected with submeridional, long developed, consedimetation hidden deep fault (normal fault) tracing mainly along the right bank of the Kura River. Taking into account peculiarities of geological structure of the eastern part of the Adjara-Trialeti zone and boring data, one can assume that generation of this old deep normal fault took place seemi­ngly already at the close of Early Cretaceous and it continued to develop during the accumulation of thick Albian-Lower Turonian volcanogenic suite, which developed mainly in eastern lying side of this fault (normal fault), but in hanging wall it replaced by carbonaceous deposits. The fault developed or underwent rejuvenation in the second half of Middle Eocene.

A complex of geomorphologic, hydrogeologic, seismic data and distribution of rocks’ temperature field show the existence in Tbilisi environs, close to the revealed old hidden deep fault, of a young submeridional fault which, proceeding from kinematics of deep and shallow faults of eastern termination of the Adjara–Trialeti zone and orientation of subhorizontal maximum compressive stress axis of this region, kinematically represents a reverse-right-slip fault. Tbilisi fault is characterized by seismic activity and with it is connected both the Tbilisi earthquake of April 25, 2002 and a number of historical earthquakes.

On the basis of a litho-facial analysis of Cenozoic formations deposited during the manifestation of orogenic phases (phase of tectogenesis), the processes of sedimentation accompanying these phases as well as paleogeographic and structural changes have been considered. Each orogenic phase was accompanied by accumulation of synorogenic regressive formations, which are direct consequence and criterion of intensification of tectonic movements. It turned out that in some cases there is no temporal coincidence between the orogenic phase and regression, and the manifestation of the same orogenic phase in different tectonic zones is not strictly synchronous. During the Cenozoic time, the most important were the Pyrenean and Styrian phases, which, along with the Chegem phase, created the principal morpho-structural units and predetermined, in general, the characteristic features and present-day setting of the region. Taking into account the age of regressive deposits and geochronological data, for the first time the duration of each orogenic phase has been determined for the territory of Georgia.

In the Lower Jurassic deposits of Georgia and the adjacent regions of Azerbaijan and Russian Federation fossil remains of cephalopods are irregularly distributed; but stratigraphically highly valuable zonal complexes, comprising the species that are known in stratotype sections, often represent them. This circumstance allows to allocate here zones of Western Europe and to ascertain their presence. The collected actual material has enabled to update the stratigraphic range of separate species of ammonites and to supplement with them some zonal subdivisions. Based on the data obtained due to correlation of the Lower Jurassic zones of Georgia with its contiguous regions, an inference on the similarity and difference between the constituent ammonitic complexes of the above regions is made.

Based on the researches of new, rich paleontological material (mollusks, foraminifers and nannoplankton) obtained from Tchokrakian layers that are widespread in West Georgia, within the limits of the mentioned straton has been confirmed the existence of three independent substages. Our conclusions, though some explorers disagree with them, are based on the fact that, in the Tchokrakian sediments that are spread on the territory of West Georgia, became possible to establish the existence of three qualitatively differing faunal complexes; they express evolution history of the mentioned paleontological groups through time. It directly depends upon the variations of hydrological regime of the Tchokrakian basin. In defining the stratigraphic range of the Tchokrakian sediments and its subdivision into stratons, the representative of nannoplankton – Perforocalcinella fusiformis Bona has the leading role. It was established, that this form on the whole territory of West Georgia is connected only with the sediments of the Tchokrakian regiostage. It is an index-species of this stratigraphic unit and in geological section it was not found in adjacent sediments.

According to new data, Precambrian magmatism has been found to be widespread in the Caucasus. On the basis of large analytical material, distribution peculiarities of petrogenic elements, RE and REE (Sm/Nd, Lan/Ybn, Rb/Sr, Eu/Eu*, Sr/Nd, Rb/Sr-SiO2 et al.) in Precambrian magamatites are stated. According to petro- and geochemical parameters, granitoids are represented mainly by crustal and upper crustal formations, but among basites predominant are ophiolites. It is established that Precambrian magmatites of various structural units of the Caucasus differ from each other by their age, composition and geodynamic conditions of formation, also by petro- and geochemical characteristics.

Within the Caucasus Late Variscan (Sudetian) orogeny is a period of formation of post-metamorphic potassic granitoids and, as a result, formation of true continental crust. It is also a time of exhumation of deeply burried crystalline rocks. Late Variscan granitoids are mainly represented by two-mica or biotite bearing microcline granodiorites, rarely – by granites and alaskites. It is stated that granitoids of all the exposures are characterized of similar mineral composition, petrologic-geochemical parameters and geodynamic conditions of formation. The granitoids correspond to rocks of normal alkalinity and subalkaline varieties of the calc-alkaline series. According to geochemical data, most of Late Variscan granitoids are attributed to the upper-crustal formations and are more comparable with the S-type granitoids and the lesser part – to common-crustal and correspond to the I-type granitoids. Distribution of RE and REE (Sm/Nd, Lan/Ybn, Rb/Sr, Eu/Eu*, Sr/Nd, Rb/Sr-SiO2 et al.) in the granitoids as a whole corresponds to that of these elements in uppercrustal granitoids of the other regions of the world.

Here are studied typomorphic peculiarities of ore-forming minerals of the Kvaisa ore-field from the standpoint of fluid inclusions. For this purpose, in order to define the temperature minimum of the formation of ore-forming minerals (quartz, calcite, barite, pyrite, galena), a method of decrepitation was applied and cumulative decrepitogramms were produced; they are represented as a chart (1 fugure). The work deals with the data of homogenization carried out by different authors. Comparing the homogenization and decrepitation data, one can make an inference that the ore formation took place at gradual decrease of temperature from 320 to 1000C and lower, and the productive ore-formation proceeded within the interval of 320-2000C. In the same minerals, chemical content of fluid inclusions was studied using the triplicate extraction techniques. In the work presented are triangular diagramms (3 figures) of anions (Cl, HCO3, SO4) and cations (K, Na, Mg, Ca) they make possible to assume that the content of ore-forming fluids changes successively for different ore types. Morphological characteristics (colloform and metacolloidal textures) of ore minerals (sphalerite, galenite) are indicative of fluid saturation of the ore-forming minerals proved to be true by the presence of similar extremums on the decrepitogramm of ore-constituting minerals, pointing to simultaneous saturation-induced extraction of ore minerals. For different types of mineralization, the following changes are established: in lead-zinc ores they were of calcium-hydro­carbonate-sulfate character, in barite-bearing lead-zinc ores – of calcium-hydrocarbonate-chloride, and for the barite type ores they were of calcium-sulfate-chloride character.

5.B3.18. Character of metal distribution in bottom drift of the rivers Chorokhi and Adjaristskali. /V. Gvakharia, N. Machitadze/. A. Djanelidze Institute of Geology, Proceedings. – 2008. – pp. 264-276. – rus. res.: geo., eng., rus.

The source of the sulphide elements in the solid drift of the rivers Chorokhi and Adjaristskali is a range of polymetalic sulphide deposits of the South Caucasus located within the catchement basins of the rivers both in Georgia and Turkey. Among them the largest are Merisi (Adjara) and Murguli (Artvin district, Turkey) deposits. Many long years on the basis of the latter gold abstraction and ore mining and processing enterprises are being operating. Ore mining and processing plant operating in Merisi in 50-60-ies of the last century has been temporarily closed up. In the Chorokhi bottom sediments high concentrations of Cu and Zn – 180 and 290 mg/kg respectively – are observed. Mn and Fe content in the Chorokhi and Zn, Cu and Mn concentrations in the Adjaristskali bottom sediments are in the limits of relevant Clark values. Ore components in the Adjaristskali bottom sediments have not been observed. According to the granulometric fraction analysis data Cu and Zn in the Chorokhi sediments are mainly accumulated in 0.07-0.2 mm fractions. Content of this fraction within the bottom sediments of the river is 5%. Maximum content of Cu and Zn in the Adjaristskali bottom sediments has been observed in the finest fractions (<0.07mm), presumably absorbed on the clay minerals. The character of inter-fraction distribution of Mn and Fe shows that the maximum content is found in 0.14-0.07 mm particles. It has been estimated that Cu represents the marker element of the sulphide minerals depletion products, whereas Mn and Fe are the marker elements of the Adjara-Trialeti folded system forming volcanogenic rock depletion products. Based on obtained results character of correlation of the metals has been determined.

A recent analysis of the data on the known gold-porphyry copper deposits of the Kedabek mining district (Azer­baijan) related to the Atabek-Slavyansk plagiogranites (Karadag, Kharkhar, Djagirchai) allows to establish ore-metasomatic zonality of these deposits. With the use of geophysical methods – magnetic, electrical, deep seismic sounding (DSS), geophysical models that may be helpful in mapping of ore-bearing areas have been made. The article contains geochemical characteristics of some ore objects of the region. An inference has been drawn that both the hydrochemical anomalies and the primary geochemical aureols of Cu, Mo, Pb, Ag, as well as lithochemical dispersion trains of au, Pb, Cu, Zn can be for practical purposes.

Gagnidze/. A. Janelidze Institute of Geology, Proceedings. – 2008. – pp. 316-329. – eng. res.: geo., eng., rus.

The paper presents brief characteristics of ore-bearing volcanostructures and principal non-ferrous metal deposits of the Bolnisi district. A geological-genetic model of the development of hydrosystems is proposed, and some considerations concerning the main causes of ore formation are discussed. The similarity between the mineralogical zonality of epigenetic and volcanogenic-sedimentary deposits is underlined. This resemblance can be explained by: 1) similar composition of ore-forming fluids, and 2) similar physical-chemical conditions of ore accumulation. A problem of the source of water and ore matter for barite-polymetallic and copper veinlet-disseminated deposits is also considered. The source of ore matter for barite-polymetallic mineralization might have been underground highly-saline brines that were buried in the basement rocks; as for copper stockwork ores that were, most likely, formed according to the principle of the convective model (displacement of hydrotherms under the influence of the thermal field of intrusions), their fluids could have been heterogeneous formed as a result of intermixture of magmatogenic and meteoric waters.

In the present work perspective crystal scintillators based on the large, optically perfect Ce – doped lute­tium oxyorthosilicate single crystals LSO:Ce for nuclear spectrometry (γ – Ray Detectors ) and positron emission tomography have been received. Traditionally in the Department Physical Crystallography of the Institute of Geology single crystals were grown by the vertically and horizontally directed crystallization methods (modified Stockbarger-Bridgman method). Our preliminary investigation has shown that the most perfect crystals are grown by the method of horizontally directed crystallization. In this case, the elements of directed crystallization are combined with the zone melting advantages. Crystallization is carried out in the conditions of sufficiently developed mirror of melting, which helps the evaporation of undesirable impurities. As a result in this case the chemical purity of crystals increases and the crystals had the following parameters: decay time – not more than 40-43 ns; energy resolution (R,%) over 137Cs – not worse than 11-13 %; light output with respect to [10×10×2] mm3 NaI(TI) at irradiation by 137Cs (E=662 keV) – not less than 70-76 %.

In the crystalline basement of the Greater Caucasus, in the contact zone between the Upper Variscan Sakeni intrusive of dioritic-granodioritic composition of the mantle-crust generation and the Pre-Alpine anatectic granite-migmatitic complex, the authors discovered a Sakeni ore field. There, four isolated ore-manifestations of quartz-gold-lowsulfide hydrothermal genetic type were established, being formed at a medium depth (2-3km), that are entirely controlled by the Alibek regional overthrust and a system of young cross faults. Recent erosion strips, mainly, the frontal part of low temperature quartz-gold-antimonite mineralization. Due to it, more important gold stockwork type mineralization is expected in the deeper horizons.

5.B4.1. Landscape diversity of Georgia. /D. Nikolaishivli/. Geography of Georgia. – 2008. – #6-7. – pp. 17-28. – geo.; res.: eng., rus.

One of the most important problems of modern geography is to determine natural po­ten­ti­al and trends of landscapes. This problem needs analysis of many indicators of landscapes, such as landscape diversity. The main objective of the research was to determine diversity of landscapes of Georgia. For ana­lysis of landscape diversity, ae landscape map of Georgia (1:500,000) was used. This issue is discussed from several points of view: by administrative units (regions, districts) of Georgia, by landscape units (classes, types, subtypes, genus, and types of vertical structure of natural-ter­ritorial complexes – NTC) per unit of the area. Thus, landscape diversity is high in those landscapes, which: are widespread, occupy large hypsometrical zones, are located between landscapes with different humidification, and are cha­rac­terized of different anthropogenic transformation.

The knowledge of a degree of saturation of a specific region with attraction objects, namely the monuments of anthropogenic origin, is of much importance in planning specific educational and ecological tours. The size and the age of any building are taken as a measure of “impression” produced on any ordinary visitor of that building. The formula for the Historical-Architectural Potential (HAP) of a building contains also two correctional coefficients: of the construction type (fortification, religious or dwelling one, etc) and of its present condition (i.e. preservation state), in addition to the dimensional and time components measured on a logarith­mic scale. The HAP of individual buildings, as well as the full HAP value and its average density on a specific territory are calculated. The determinations and the method of HAP calculation offered here enables one to estimate and compare by the expected power of “impression” both the separate historical constructions and some regions as a whole.

The article deals with influence of the global warming and climate change on the agroecological zone of the humid subtropics of Georgia caused by the anthropogenic factor. Regression inequalities are received and scenario for case of increase of the temperature by 1° according to regions is made up, the use of which allows making gradation of agroecological microzones with the corresponding sum of temperatures (above 10°) in each 100 m above sea level. It is established that upon the temperature rise by one degree (above 100), the sum of temperatures increases by 220-240° on average to result in better provision of citrus crops with warmth and the rise of the existing zone up to 100-150 m above sea level.

In the first part of the work the author’s views about the origin and functioning of the visible world, according to which the visible world is a set of eternal expansion-compression processes. The visible and invisible worlds, taken together, exist as a potentiality of uncountable quantity and directions. In the second part of the work the author’s views about the nature of a uniform field are stated. As it is known, A. Einstein for several decades was trying to create the theory of a uniform field on the basis of four known fields. In the author’s opinion, the proved unsuccessful because except the known four fields, there are also fields of other nature (for example, biological, mental, etc.), which parameters were unknown in the days of A. Einstein. Therefore, it may be presumed that that there exists a super-reasonable, uniform, energy-information field and the corresponding general, super-reasonable forces with enormous energy that adjust processes both in the visible and invisible worlds.

Batumi underwater spit is an interesting relief form in Batumi seaside zone. The development of its parameters was carried out under influence of dominant west waves and at the time of dominant north-west waves the spit joins the beach. Its main peculiarity is that it always strives to grow into a surface form, but the existing natural conditions that contribute to shifting of excessive sediments (50-60 thousand m3 per year) to Batumi underwater canyon make it stay in the underwater form. The Batumi underwater spit is a positive relief form and as a natural underwater breakwater it protects the seashore from washing away; therefore, its role is maintaining the Batumi seaside stability is great.

Wide-range implementation of energy saving activities in the country require the development of the appropriate energy saving policy, strategy, and legislative base; the working out of a mechanism for wide introduction of the energy saving technologies; the preparation of energy saving programs, etc. In order to sort out these problems, it is necessary to establish in the energy sector a new licensing body – Energy Saving Department. Functioning of the Energy Saving Department will significantly consolidate the energy safety of the country and make a certain contribution to the handling of social and environmental problems. For example, by making measures relating to the energy saving in Tbilisi, we may significantly save energy resources, including: 430.4 million kWt/hour of electric power, 64 million m3 natural gas and 13 million liters of car fuel. Using two energy saving bulbs, 350 families will save within 6 years GEL 5,44 per month. These energy saving measures will also contribute to a reduction of the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere by 1,74 million tons, to the reduction of capacity shortage in the power system by 124,4 megawatts, etc.

The problem of the construction of an object functioning in the regime of optimum performance at the design stage is reduced to the solution of the problem of multi-criterion optimization, where the quality criteria are chosen to be its most essential characteristics (parameters). At the same time in all methods of multi-criterion optimization the vector quality criterion is considered basically in the linear Euclidean space. Actually, in most cases, the criterion space is non-Euclidean – it is curved. Therefore, such setting cannot give results adequately reflecting the processes running in real systems. In order for the design system to really satisfy the optimality requirements the authors of the given paper offer a resolutely new approach to the solution of the problems of multi-criterion optimization based on the definition of the quality criteria space and on finding an invariant corresponding to the distance between any two points of that space. The idea of the study of the metric properties of the quality criteria space and their use in solving problems of optimization was offered in the work [1]. But that idea, due to its complexity, has not been completely realized until now. When solving such problems the quality criteria space was automatically identified with the Euclidean space with corresponding metrics. In the general case this couldn’t give results adequately reflecting the processes occurring in real systems. In the present paper metric properties of space criteria are studied for the first time, using as the main instrument the mathematical apparatus of tensor analysis, Riemannian geometry, differential equations in partial derivatives etc. Boundary problems relative to the components of the metric tensor of the n-dimensional space of the phenomenon states enabling to determine its metric properties are posed. The knowledge of the metric tensor furthers the objective appraisal of the phenomenon state and the definition of the optimal state.

The work specifies that one of the basic requirements to blood transfusion filters is porosity and filling of the filter surface by strings. It is shown that the proposed clearance area estimating method by M. Genser in the case of weft-knit fabric is unacceptable for. A new original method of pore surface measurement has been used. The data are shown in the table. The obtained porosity data allow identifying variants with the greatest number of pores and the smallest pores on the sample surface. The weaves of these variants are found to have the best parameters of filtration. It is established that porosity depends on the ratio of lengths of strings in loops, sketches and weft broaching and the density of the weft-knit interlacing. All this should be taken into consideration during optimization of the parameters of samples for achieving the highest filtration factor and the filter capacity.

Changes in the content of oxygen in a fer­men­tation la­yer of a dif­fe­rent thic­kness and fraction (from 5 to 50 cm) have been studied. In both frac­ti­ons, the content of ox­ygen first falls, re­ac­hes the mi­ni­mum, and then ra­i­ses. The spe­ed and si­ze of fal­ling of the content of ox­ygen de­pends on the thic­kness of a la­yer and a kind of frac­ti­on. The he­ight of a la­yer is in di­rect pro­por­ti­o­nal de­pen­den­ce on the spe­ed and si­ze of re­duc­ti­on of ox­ygen. For a rolled fi­ne frac­ti­on, the si­ze and spe­ed of oxygen re­duc­ti­on is much over than for the second-rolling frac­ti­on. The dif­fe­ren­ce in struc­tu­re of oxygen is more pronounced bet­we­en thick la­yers (30, 40, 50 cm) than bet­we­en thin (5, 10, 20, 30) la­yers.

The optimal values of selective dry tea crushing parameters are experimentally substantiated. Modeling of a breaking roller as a laboratory device enabling to change the operating factors in the given intervals is made. As a criterion of estimation of the tests, the criterion of technological efficiency of division of a two-component mix in two fractions is accepted. For search of an extremum of this criterion, the simplex method is used. As a result, it is concluded that the high effect of selective breaking of dry tea is reached at the minimum values of the roller diameter of the breaking machine and the hardness of its elastic surface.

Pes­ti­ci­des are wi­de­ly spre­ad in the world. Especially wi­dely used in national economy are insecticides (aga­inst destructive insects), fungicides (aga­inst fungi), her­bi­ci­des (aga­inst we­eds), zooids (aga­inst rodents), al­so plant gro­wth stimulants. It sho­uld always be remembered that improper application of pes­ti­ci­des might lead to undesirable results. They can da­ma­ge not only insects, plants and various microbes but al­so can kill war­m-blo­o­ded ani­mals. They are po­ten­ti­ally dan­ge­ro­us to the na­tu­re and hu­mans. Organochlorine and organophosphorous preparations are most widely used. Out of organochlorine pesticides, the following are applied in agriculture: DDT (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane), hexaloran, chlo­rop­hos, he­tac­hlo­ri­ne, etc. They are cha­rac­te­ri­zed of high sta­bi­lity to different en­vi­ron­mental fac­tors. For in­stan­ce, DDT remains in so­il for abo­ut 10-15 mi­nu­tes and tends to accumulate in the adipose cells of po­ultry, fish, ani­mals and hu­man beings. After taking fo­od polluted with organochlo­ri­ne pes­ti­ci­des and compounds, the organochlorine compounds stay in the human body for a long ti­me. DDT has been removed from the list of che­mi­cal agents re­com­men­ded to control pests in ag­ri­cul­tu­re in Georgia. The quantity of pesticide residues shall not exceed the maximum tolerated dose (MTD).

The freezing of food products is widely applied under both production and everyday living conditions. The freezing process is influenced by many factors, the most important ones of which are the shape and sizes of the freezable body. In practice, the most popular shapes of a freezable body are the sphere, the cylinder and the cuboid. According to the work results, the duration of freezing of any body depends on its volume and the heat transmission surface area. The body’s freezing time is counter proportional to its surface area and directly proportional to its volume. For spherical and cylindrical bodies the geometrical value determining the freezing speed is the diameter, whereas for the cuboid bodies – the ratio of the lengths of their sides.

The development of modem computer technologies allows exercising control over constructions in an uninterrupted automatic regime. This requires that the information on test results have to be obtained through existing converters and then put into in such a form that is easy to process. Therefore, during any test the parameters being under scrutiny should, first of all, be identified and the methodology for their identification selected. In order to identify the parameters in their entirety, which is important at any stage of a strained deformed state of bending reinforced concrete constructions, we have developed a simple methodology. Also experimentally determined and compared with a theoretical value of the rigidity were the initial dynamic and static rigidities.

In Georgia, as in active seismic region, a wide application of light concrete is of great importance. Based on the effectiveness of light concrete, the production of manmade light concrete aggregates has long been practiced in the world, which is a rather costly process. As regards Georgia, it has practically the unlimited reserves of aggregates of natural volcanic origin, the physical and mechanical properties of which are well studied but which are poorly used in practice. Given the present construction boom in the country, the light aggregate-based concrete needs to be further studied. For this purpose, tests for axial compression and tension of light concretes were carried out both in the case a single and cyclically increasing static loads of seismic type.

Significant increase of hydrotechnical construction efficiency and quality is possible through wide application of continuous concreting technology of massive buildings. In our country, continuous concreting technology was first applied in the construction of Inguri arch dam, namely, during construction of its left side wall. The speed of erection of the above-mentioned wall greatly lagged behind the construction speed of the central part of the dam since the latter did not fall within the zone of cable lifting service and the existing technology could not ensure the required construction speed. The cargo ropeway involved in permanent concreting technological line, the continuous concrete factory and the conveyer transport facility with a concrete–laying machine made it possible to install a universal system of uninterrupted action.

A study of the zeolites’ aftereffect on the tea leaf content demonstrated that against the background of mineral fertilizers, natural phillipsite increases the content of phosphate, calcium, and magnesium in fleshes, whereas in terms of nitrogen, a tendency of its reduction is observable. This is caused by the ability of zeolites to absorb NH4+-ions from the soil, which indisputably increases the nitrogen utilization ratio.

The article deals with the expediency of using microwave heating in the production of tea to intensify the process of fixation of the tea leaf. It is found that to inactivate redox enzymes, fixation in the superhigh frequency field for 2-3 minutes would suffice; at that, humidity of the tea mass is reduced to 63-64%. A microwave heater for tea leaf fixation has been designed and the laboratory tests carried out on it have demonstrated its important technological, technical and economic advantages over the available fixation machines. The experimental production of the green tea obtained by the developed technology significantly excels the control in phenol compounds, extractive substances and amount of catechines. This advantage is expressed by an increase of outcome of the extra and first-class teas by 9.2%, of leaf teas - by 12.2%, and of the weighted average mark - by 0.19 points.

The schematic diagram and kinematics of a subsoil and erosion-preventive cultivator, also the flowsheet of the erosion-prevention cultivation on slopes are introduced. The design and kinematic parameters of the working device of the machine are determined. In selecting the schematic diagram of the machine with active working devices for soil slotting, the designers tried to ensure that the machine be of a simple design on the one hand and compact on the other hand, for on slopes with inclination over 8-10 degrees the possibility of using mobile machines and units sharply reduces. The making of compact machines will give the chance to mount them on different truck-tractors.

The existing methods of the soil production restoration by means of its decompaction and application of fertilizers do not always help boost the harvest of agricultural crops and reduce erosive processes. At present, new efficient methods to improve the quality of soil cultivation are being sought. The studies of the new technologies and technical means to qualitatively cultivate the soil will allow using a pneumo-dynamic effect for this purpose, i.e. pulse energy of the compressed air by installing pneumo-dynamic intensifiers on the scarifiers. The advantage of cultivating the soil with such scarifiers is the use of the pulse stretching forces of the compressed gas when the energy consumption to scarify the soil is tens of times less than during its compression typical to the modern soil-cultivation tools. The dynamics of such equipment is not sufficiently studied at present. At the same time, the operating time of the control system of soil scarifiers with pneumo-dynamic intensifiers is the principal parameter defining the efficiency of the soil-cultivating machines and equipment designed according to this principle. The article describes the methods and gives relevant formulae to define the operating time of the control system of the soil scarifiers with pneumo-dynamic intensifiers.

The self-propelled chassis of high-clearance СШ-28 4 (modified on the Ukrainian-made chassis СШ-28) was usually used in Georgia for cultivating and harvesting tea and other tall-stalked plants. However, the chassis СШ-28 had several shortcomings. Firstly, its design was hardly modified; secondly, it had a low level of universality and a low traction efficiency caused by its low load-carrying capacity. Besides, the usage of large wheels further hindered the working process along the narrow rows on plantations. To improve performance, a new adaptive type of tandem-wheeled performing system has been worked out for the modified self-propelled chassis СШ-28. Instead of the additional reduction gear and wheels, the new system suggests the usage of balanced reduction gear swinging on semi-axis, with leading wheels attached to its ends one after the other. The main advantage of the above system - four leading wheels –makes it possible to increase the load-carrying capacity and traction properties of the modified chassis. Also can be noted minor re-design of the existing model. Analysis of the theoretical power balances and traction efficiency of the adaptive tandem-wheeled chassis shows advantages of application of the tandem-wheeled chassis in comparison with the chassis with ordinary leading wheels.

5.C9.24. Determination of reliability indicators of the driving gear of a tea cutting machine at the stage of design. /N. Maghlakelidze/. IMEA Scientific Works. – 2009. – vol. 50. – pp. 193­­-200. – geo.; res.: geo., rus., eng.

The loss of efficiency of a tea cutting machine depends on many factors, on of which is the random load value affecting certain parts of the driving gear and causing the loss of efficiency of the machine. In order to prevent failure of the machine under the effect of random loads, it is necessary to elaborate such a methodology of calculation of strength of its parts that will connect its geometrical characteristics with the reliability characteristics. Such opportunity is provided through synthesis of the reliable probability theory with the determined methods of calculation for strength using the theory of the random function’s fallout from the indicated level. The research work was conducted by the example of the driving gear crankshaft of the tea cutting machine. Loading in the tea cutting machine is of a random character. Designing of the machine with specified reliability indicators is economically feasible. For this purposes it is necessary that the functional connection between the nominal diameter and the mentioned indicators, for which we use the theory of fallout from the indicated level, be established. By using the theory of fallout from the indicated level of the accidental function, the functional connection of the nominal diameter with the statistical indicators of loading, the probability of no-failure operation and the terms of service of the machine are established. By a specific example, an opportunity of using the reliability indicators for strength calculation of the machine is demonstrated.

Diapausing eggs were γ-irradiated for a long-term period at the summary dose of S 2 gray and for a short-term period at the start of incubation at the irradiation dose of 8 gray. The experiment was carried out in two series. In the first series, the irradiated were the silkworm eggs whose previous generations were not subjected to irradiation (irradiated control group). In the second series (experimental group), irradiated were the eggs whose previous generations were subjected to gamma irradiation. The results (in percentages) obtained for the experimental and control groups when irradiated with a short-term irradiation dose of 8 gray are as follows: survival 26 and 6.5; cocoon yield 65 and 22; emerged moth 35 and 10; cocoon shell mass 612±89 mgr and 469±60 mgr. When irradiated with the prolonged irradiation with a summary dose of 8 gray, the results are as follows: survival – 36 and 26; cocoon yield - 88 and 42.5; emerged moth - 78 and 42.5; cocoon shell mass - 642±459 mgr and 607±49 mgr. The above data show that silkworm eggs irradiated with high dose of gamma radiation – 8 gray sharply decrease the survival rate of larva, especially of the caterpillars whose previous generations were not subjected to irradiation. The prolonged irradiation of the eggs exerts a sparing effect on the viability of caterpillars.

The bioproductivity of fodder grasses of subalpine hayfields depends on soil fertility, the degree erodibility and herbage thickness, the soil rockiness and the specific composition of vegetation. The bioproductivity of grassy phytocenosis fluctuates from 8 to 21 tons. In the fractional structure, the greatest part from the general biomass comes on cereals. They are followed by motley grasses, leguminous plants (beans) and sedge. The overground phytomass of motley grasses is more than the phytomass of cereals in all cases, but in an underground part the phytomass of cereals exceeds the phytomass of motley grasses. The quantity of underground phytomass is 3.8-7.0 times more than the quantity of overground phytomass and makes 81-88% of the general biomass. The abundance of leguminous plants not only increases the reserves of roots but the soil fertility and the fodder quality of grassy communities as well.

Among soil-improvement, agrotechnical and biological measures to control soil salinity, the enhancement of salt tolerance of crops is the best. At the early development stage, crops are distinguished for special flexibility and relatively easily adopt to the changing environment; as for the crops that have undergone hardening under unfavorable living conditions, for the whole lifetime they preserve the acquired properties (salt resistance, draught tolerance, raised yield) and pass them to succeeding generations. The work deals with an ecologically safe technology designated and employed for raising soil productivity that envisages a presowing treatment and hardening of the seed material by a 3% NaCl solution. The method has proved to be effective for mildly and medium saline soils in terms of seed germination and crop development. In addition, it is distinguished for ecological and economic efficacy, for it does not render an adverse impact on the environment and does not require considerable energy and money inputs.

The water quality in a water reservoir depends on different biological and chemical elements present in the water; their concentration frequently exceeds the upper allowable limit caused by different anthropogenic factors. The wastewater from agricultural land, surface and underground waters and ablation are worth mentioning out of these factors. The wastewater and ablation identification technique ambiguity leads to the results of ambiguous evaluation of water quality in water reservoirs. Therefore, the water quality evaluation requires a different approach. The present work employs a range of the reliability theory methods successfully used in different scientific fields to quantify the state and properties of the water in a water reservoir. This method was used to define the risk of pollution of Samgori, Sioni and Tsalka water reservoirs with biogenic elements. An analysis of the obtained results demonstrates that a great amount of biogenic elements are washed away from the agricultural land resulting in the possible activation of eutrophication processes and ecological catastrophe of the water reservoirs.

Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy (EIEE) or Ohtahara syndrome is the earliest form of age-dependent encephalopathies. This rare syndrome is characterized by a very early onset, during the first months of life, with frequent tonic spasms and a suppression-burst pattern on electroencephalogram. Partial motor seizures may occur. Brain imaging usually discloses gross structural abnormalities in the majority of cases. Metabolic disorders were present in a few cases. The course is severe with early death or marked psychomotor retardation and intractable seizures with frequent evolution to West syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome on 4-6th month of age. Antiepileptic drugs remain as first-line treatment.

The aim of this study was to compare the mesenchymal stem cell content in the mouse bone marrow and peripheral blood. A flow cytometry of the mouse bone marrow and PB-derived mononuclear cells (MNC) shows that the content of STRO-1 positive and CD45 CD34 negative cell count in the bone marrow MNC fraction is 15,7 times more then in PB MNC fraction. However, PB can be considered as the alternative source for mesenchymal stem cells because the bone marrow aspiration is much more invasive and painful procedure than the MNC collection from PB using cell separators.

The need for improved therapies of cardiovascular diseases and the rationale for angioplasty and stent therapy are based on the underlying pathology of the disease process. Recently has emerged a new approach for the site-selective delivery of therapeutic agents to areas of the injured or dysfunctional vascular wall, including vascular segments at risk A number of important properties of these nanoparticles make them ideal as targeted delivery vehicles, including: 1. Increased adherence to damaged vasculature and endothelium; 2. Ability to non-covalently complex selected compounds; and 3. Exponentiation of compound uptake by cells or tissue. The most well studied and emphasized in the present report is the use of perfluorobutane/dextrose/albumin nanoparticles. Drugs can be incorporated into the micro-bubbles in a number of different ways, including binding of the drug to the micro-bubble shell and attachment of site-specific ligands. As perfluorocarbon-filled micro-bubbles are sufficiently stable for circulating in the vasculature as blood pool agents, they act as carriers of these agents until the site of interest is reached. Despite important pharmacologic and interventional strategies to treat atherosclerotic vascular disease, it remains a serious clinical problem today. Intravenous micro-bubbles have been developed which can be used to detect where endothelial dysfunction exists, and which can be targeted to detect inflammatory and pro-thrombotic mediators on the plaque surface. These same micro-bubbles can then be used for site specific delivery of agents which inhibit plaque progression. These novel diagnostic and treatment strategies have the potential to significantly alter patient outcomes in atherosclerotic vascular disease.

The outcomes of the study demonstrated that the violent activation of cellular proliferation in liver tissue can be triggered by partial hepatectomy (PH), as well as by common bile duct ligation (BDL). However, the causes of the mentioned activation are not still clearly defined. 54 white Wistar male rats of II postpubertal age with weight 200-220 g were included in PH or BDL models. In PH setting, pressure in portal vein was measured before and immediately after PH, as well as at 6th, 24th, 48th, and 144th hours past the operation. Mitotic bodies were counted immediately after PH, and at 6th, 32nd, 72nd and 144th hours after the operation. In BDL setting, the pressure in common bile duct was measured before and at 1st, 3rd, 72nd, 96th and 120th and 144th hours after its ligation, and pressure in portal vein in this same setting was measured at 1st, 6th, 24th, 72nd, 144th hours past the operation. Mitotic bodies were counted at 24th, 48th, 72nd, 96th and 144th hours after BDL. On the basis of data obtained and analyzed the following conclusions are made: portal and biliary hypertension appeared to serve as a trigger for cellular proliferative activity in PH and BDL settings. The comprehensive evaluation of the processes involving liver regeneration following partial hepatectomy and post- BDL biliary ductular proliferation hence requires not only the reduction of intervals between experimental data and refinement of the morphological and/or molecular/biological techniques of the study, but also the development of new experimental models with novel approaches.

The present research investigates the dynamics of systolic and diastolic arterial pressure and heart rate variability in three groups of patients with different stages of hypertension. Essential increase of extent of order in systolic and diastolic arterial pressure, as well as in heart rate variability has been observed using recurrence quantitative analysis (RQA) approach. Both measured and compiled from original data SDH time series have been investigated. We conclude that increase of order in blood pressure and heart rate variation in hypertension reflect general features of changes in heart dynamics and are not caused by unavoidable local trends in the analyzed physiological data sets.

Using the methods of light and electron microscopy, pancreas was studied in the experimental model of alloxan diabetes (AD) at various times of the experiment (1 and 6 months) at different degrees of AD and after the action of plaferon. Special emphasis was made on the display of compensatory changes in opportunity of occurrence in extra-islet cells special granules, characteristic of insulin producing -cells. Data obtained suggest that extra-islet cells possess structural features of both acinar as well as endocrine cells. They represent a transitory structure under transformation into the endocrine cell and rise in number in adaptive compensatory response to alloxan-induced diabetes mellitus. Plaferon is shown to have positive influence on the content of sugar and insulin in the blood in alloxan-induced diabetes mellitus. Plaferon is suggested to promote maturation and transformation of extra-islet cells. Presumablyplaferon takes part in the neogenesis of -insulinocytes.

Based on a retrospective study of the medical histories of more than 1200 patients treated at the Institute of Critical Care Medicine a new predictive-analog scale of bedsore rating critically ill patients was developed. 6 most important predictive criteria were identified: general condition severity; the local and general factors affecting the development, depth, localization and the nature of a bedsore. Each of these criteria was divided into 5 levels. The new scale helps to determine the general condition, severity and estimate conditions of bedsores not only according to its stages, but also according to the localization, the nature, the depth, the area and the complementary factors facilitating the bedsore development. This makes it possible to determine the criteria of bedsore readiness for surgical operation and specify the sequence of therapeutic tactics.

Nowadays, standard brand promotion methods – the development of a solid brand promotion budget and its advertising, the display of goods on attractive shelves in shop – are no longer effective. The reason is that the efficiency of ordinary advertising that no longer attracts the consumer is rather low. The article demonstrates branding as a very complex and complicated phenomenon. To be successful, each detail of branding should be specified and comprehensively dealt with. The article outlines practical steps towards branding and standard mistakes made by brand managers as well as the ways to avoid them.

The article considers the effectiveness of team work and underlines its advantage in comparison with administrative management. Under conditions of a team work, managers no longer have to administrate employees. Their duty is just to employ them and provide them with all necessary resources. The article compares teams with groups and shows advantages of a team work. The article says that because of high effectiveness, the principles of self-governed team work should be implemented in big Georgian companies, such as Kazbegi, Coca-Cola, Elit Electronics, etc. and provides recommendations for setting up advisory councils responsible for staffing such teams.

A skilful selection and use of managerial communication types is a tactical issue of business administration, whereas their formation, which takes place much earlier, in line with the formation of a person’s spiritual world and communication skills, is the basic problem of upbringing and education, which explains the existence of the cause-and-effect relations between them. Practice has proved that managers with good communication skills having acquired them at the early age, already at the general education level, and further developed at the higher education level, within the framework of democratic pedagogical relationship, are most prone to turn into successful leaders. Hence, the formation of a person’s communicative skills should be given the proper attention at each step of training and education.

5.D2.1. Increase of ecological compatibility of motor vehicles by using waste oils as new oil base. /J. Iosebidze, G. Abramishvili, T. Apakidze, L. Zurabishvili, A. Chkheidze/. Transactions of Technical University of Georgia. – 2009. – #1(471). – pp. 89-93. – geo.; res.: geo., eng., rus.

The so-called waste oils of M 8B1 and M 8Г2К brand were used as a base for new automotive transmission oils, the utilization of which does not take place in Georgia. An effective multifunctional addition – the amorphous high dispersive carbon (AHDC) and additive “Akop 1”, representing a stabilizer of the AHDC suspension in the base oil, were added to the oils, after they have been cleaned from water, oil and solid particles, to give them new and high functional properties. The carried out experiments showed that the obtained transmission oils outperform the well known commodity transmission oils ТАп 15В and ТСп 15к. The production and use of these oils will ensure reduction of the environmental pollution not only from residues of waste oils, but also from harmful exhaust of the engine.

Chkheidze/. Transactions of Technical University of Georgia. – 2009. – #1(471). – pp. 94-100. – geo.; res.: geo., eng., rus.

On the basis of the results of existing scientific studies, the effect of indicators of petrol detonation stability (octane number; content of aromatic hydrocarbons, actual pitches, sulfur, period of inductivity, etc.) on the toxicity of worked out gases of a motor car engine were determined by a new approach and a conceptual dependence between these indicators and ecological safety of motor cars was established. It is proved that out of the indicators of anti-detonation properties of petrol, the octane number and content of actual pitches and aromatic hydrocarbons render a significant effect on the completeness of burning of the working mixture, fuel consumption and, therefore, on the quantity of toxic components of motor cars’ exhausts.

Lately many environmental problems have been accumulated in Georgia. The amount of harmful substances in the atmosphere increased twofold. The most polluted areas are Kutaisi, Rustavi, Batumi and Zestafoni. The main source of air pollution is transport. Water is polluted by pesticides, fertilizers and industrial waste. Pollutants cause various infectious diseases and are the main reason for such awful disease as carcinoma.

Problems faced by mankind were united in a uniform dilemma of the further development of the civilization, in a philosophical problem "purpose of man’s existence". Ecological crisis – the main alternative of modern civilization development – sets before the developing world community a number of problems, including the educational one. The role of education under rapid globalization of human society is to promote harmonization; the main emphasis at the present stage of development should be made on the establishment of environmental, environmental educational goals and tasks. The work specifies the basic criteria of delimitation of ecology as a science from other natural sciences – the necessary presence of ecological triad; the principal problems of ecology of the Caucasus are identified and the basic objectives of environmental education necessary for sustainable development of the region are formulated.
