Recent Submissions

  • Nichol, Linda M.; Wright, Brianna M.; O'Hara, Patrick; Ford, John K. B. (Endangered Species Research, 2017)
    Vessel strikes are a source of mortality and injury for baleen whales, which can have population-level impacts. Spatial analysis of whale and marine traffic distributions provides a valuable approach for identifying zones ...
  • Tunç, Tuba; Sarikaya, Mehmet Z.; Srivastava, H. M. (International Journal of Analysis and Applications, 2017)
    In this study, we first give an identity for local fractional integrals. We then make use of this identity in order to derive several generalizations of the celebrated Steffensen's inequality associated with local fractional ...
  • Wang, P. H.; Theuring, M.; Vehse, M.; Steenhoff, V.; Agert, C.; Brolo, A. G. (AIP Advances, 2017-01)
    Plasmonic thin film solar cells (modified with metallic nanostructures) often display enhanced light absorption due to surface plasmon resonance (SPR). However, the plasmonic field localization may not be significantly ...
  • Robb, Melissa; Hobbs, Joanne K.; Woodiga, Shireen A.; Shapiro-Ward, Sarah; Suits, Michael D. L.; McGregor, Nicholas; Brumer, Harry; Yesilkaya, Hasan; King, Samantha J.; Boraston, Alisdair B. (PLoS Pathogens, 2017-01)
    The carbohydrate-rich coating of human tissues and cells provide a first point of contact for colonizing and invading bacteria. Commensurate with N-glycosylation being an abundant form of protein glycosylation that has ...
  • Edwards, Andrew M.; Robinson, James P. W.; Plank, Michael J.; Baum, Julia K.; Blanchard, Julia L. (Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 2017-01)
    The size spectrum of an ecological community characterizes how a property, such as abundance or biomass, varies with body size. Size spectra are often used as ecosystem indicators of marine systems. They have been fitted ...
  • Jing, Danlong; Zhang, Jianwei; Xia, Yan; Kong, Lisheng; OuYang, Fangqun; Zhang, Shougong; Zhang, Hanguo; Wang, Junhui (Plant Biotechnology Journal, 2017-01)
    Partial desiccation treatment (PDT) stimulates germination and enhances the conversion of conifer somatic embryos. To better understand the mechanisms underlying the responses of somatic embryos to PDT, we used proteomic ...
  • Lee, Jeong-Yup; Moody, Robert V. (ACTA Crystallographica A-Foundations and Advances, 2017-05)
    The intimate relationship between the Penrose and the Taylor-Socolar tilings is studied, within both the context of double hexagon tiles and the algebraic context of hierarchical inverse sequences of triangular lattices. ...

    Research on early warning indicators has generally focused on assessing temporal transitions with limited application of these methods to detecting spatial regimes. Traditional spatial boundary detection procedures that ...
  • deNiverville, Patrick (Physics Procedia, 2015)
    Low mass dark matter theories, if produced as a thermal relic in the early universe, must be accompanied by light mediators in order to obtain the dark matter abundance observed in the present day universe. These light ...
  • Fradette, Anthony; Pospelov, Maxim; Pradler, Josef; Ritz, Adam (Physics Procedia, 2015)
    We analyze the effects of a massive dark photon with mV > 1 MeV on the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). We calculate the freeze-in abundance and derive limits on the parameter space from energy injections in the CMB. We ...
  • Izaguirre, Eder; Krnjaic, Gordan; Pospelov, Maxim (Physics Letters B, 2015)
    New light, weakly coupled particles can be efficiently produced at existing and future high-intensity accelerators and radioactive sources in deep underground laboratories. Once produced, these particles can scatter or ...
  • Srivastava, H.M.; Bansal, Deepak (Journal of the Egyptian Mathematical Society, 2015)
    In the present investigation, we consider a new subclass Σ(τ, γ, φ) of the class Σ consisting of analytic and bi-univalent functions in the open unit disk U. For functions belonging to the class Σ(τ, γ, φ) introduced here, ...

    This review summarizes our current state of knowledge regarding the potential biological effects of mercury (Hg) exposure on fish and wildlife in the Canadian Arctic. Although Hg in most freshwater fish from northern Canada ...
  • Pike, Sebastian D.; Pernik, Indrek; Theron, Robin; McIndoe, J. Scott; Weller, Andrew S. (Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, 2015)
    A range of cationic rhodium bisphosphine η6-fluorobenzene (fluorobenzenes = C6H6-nFn, n = 1-3) and related complexes have been synthesized and characterized. These complexes act as useful organometallic precursors ...
  • An, Haipeng; Pospelov, Maxim; Pradler, Josef; Ritz, Adam (Physics Letters B, 2015)
    Dark matter detectors built primarily to probe elastic scattering of WIMPs on nuclei are also precise probes of light, weakly coupled, particles that may be absorbed by the detector material. In this paper, we derive ...
  • Wan, Di; Klymak, Jody M.; Foreman, Michael G.G.; Cross, Stephen F. (Continental Shelf Research, 2015)
    Barotropic M2 tidal dynamics are studied in a subsidiary tidal channel in Kyuquot Sound, Canada, a site proposed for multi-trophic aquaculture. A regional model with no stratification or forcing other than the tide found ...
