A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids
(World Scientific, 2008)We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ... 
A note on element centralizers in finite Coxeter groups
(De Gruyter, 20110829)The normalizer NW(WJ) of a standard parabolic subgroup WJ of a finite Coxeter group W splits over the parabolic subgroup with complement NJ consisting of certain minimal length coset representatives of WJ in W. In ... 
Novel approach for label free superresolution imaging in far field
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015)Progress in the emerging areas of science and technology, such as bio and nanotechnologies, depends on development of corresponding techniques for imaging and probing the structures with high resolution. Recently, the ... 
Novel Multiplex RealTime PCR Diagnostic Assay for Identification and Differentiation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium canettii, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex Strains
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 201102)Tuberculosis (TB) in humans is caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC). Rapid detection of the MTC is necessary for the timely initiation of antibiotic treatment, while differentiation between ... 
A Novel Multiplex RealTime PCR for the Identification of Mycobacteria Associated with Zoonotic Tuberculosis
(PLoS ONE, 20110809)Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death worldwide from a single infectious agent. An ability to detect the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) in clinical material while simultaneously differentiating ... 
Oblique wrinkles
(The Royal Society Publishing, 20170403)We prove theoretically that when a soft solid is subjected to an extreme deformation, wrinkles can form on its surface at an angle that is oblique to a principal direction of stretch. These oblique wrinkles occur for a ... 
Observation of Extended VHE Emission from the Supernova Remnant IC 443 with VERITAS
(2009)We present evidence that the veryhighenergy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) gammaray emission coincident with the supernova remnant IC 443 is extended. IC 443 contains one of the beststudied sites of supernova remnant/molecular ... 
Observation of gammaray emission from the galaxy M87 above 250 GeV with VERITAS
(2008)The multiwavelength observation of the nearby radio galaxy M87 provides a unique opportunity to study in detail processes occurring in Active Galactic Nuclei from radio waves to TeV gammarays. Here we report the detection ... 
Observations of the shelltype SNR Cassiopeia A at TeV energies with VERITAS
(2010)We report on observations of very highenergy gamma rays from the shelltype supernova remnant Cassiopeia A with the VERITAS stereoscopic array of four imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in Arizona. The total exposure ... 
Observations of the Unidentified TeV GammaRay Source TeV J2032+4130 with the Whipple Observatory 10 m Telescope
(2006)We report on observations of the sky region around the unidentified TeV gammaray source TeV J2032+4130 carried out with the Whipple Observatory 10 m atmospheric Cherenkov telescope for a total of 65.5 hrs between 2003 and ... 
Occupational exposures in an equestrian centre to respirable dust and respirable crystalline silica
(MDPI, 20190903)Abstract: Sandbased products are regularly used as footing material on indoor equestrian arenas, creating a potential occupational exposure risk for respirable crystalline silica (RCS) for equestrian workers training and ... 
Old dog, new tricks: 2,2'biphenol as a bridging and bookend ligand in discrete and extended Co(II) architectures
(RSC, 20120201)We report the first Co(ii) based discrete and extended network materials comprising the 2,2[prime or minute]biphenol ligand. We first present the synthesis and magnetic characterisation of the Co(ii) dinuclear complexes ... 
On a question of Serre
(2012)Consider an imaginary quadratic number field Q(root m), with m a squarefree positive integer, and its ring of integers {O} . The Bianchi groups are the groups SL2{O}. Further consider the BorelSerre compactification [7] ... 
On anisotropic elasticity and questions concerning its Finite Element implementation
(Springer, 20130521)We give conditions on the strainenergy function of nonlinear anisotropic hyperelastic materials that ensure compatibility with the classical linear theories of anisotropic elasticity. We uncover the limitations associated ... 
On deforming a sector of a circular cylindrical tube into an intact tube: Existence, uniqueness, and stability
(Elsevier, 201011)Within the context of finite deformation elasticity theory the problem of deforming an open sector of a thickwalled circular cylindrical tube into a complete circular cylindrical tube is analyzed. The analysis provides a ... 
On exceptional vertex operator (Super) algebras
(Springer, 20141001)We consider exceptional vertex operator algebras and vertex operator superalgebras with the property that particular Casimir vectors constructed from the primary vectors of lowest conformal weight are Virasoro descendents ... 
On Genus Two Riemann Surfaces Formed from Sewn Tori
(2006)We describe the period matrix and other data on a higher genus Riemann surface in terms of data coming from lower genus surfaces via an explicit sewing procedure. We consider in detail the construction of a genus two Riemann ... 
On Level One Cuspidal Bianchi Modular Forms
(2013)In this paper, we present the outcome of vast computer calculations, locating several of the very rare instances of level one cuspidal Bianchi modular forms that are not lifts of elliptic modular forms. 
On magnetoacoustic waves in finitely deformed elastic solids
(SAGE Journals, 2011)In this paper, in the context of the quasimagnetostatic approximation, we examine incremental motions superimposed on a static finite deformation of a magnetoelastic material in the presence of an applied magnetic field. ... 
On reflection subgroups of finite Coxeter groups
(Taylor & Francis, 20130614)Let W be a finite Coxeter group. We classify the reflection subgroups of W up to conjugacy and give necessary and sufficient conditions for the map that assigns to a reflection subgroup R of W the conjugacy class of its ...
