Nanosensitive optical coherence tomography for the study of changes in static and dynamic structures
(IOP Science, 20140306)We briefly discuss the principle of image formation in Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). The theory of a new approach to improve dramatically the sensitivity of conventional OCT is described. The approach ... 
Nerve Growth Factor in Cancer Cell Death and Survival
(MDPI, 201102)One of the major challenges for cancer therapeutics is the resistance of many tumor cells to induction of cell death due to prosurvival signaling in the cancer cells. Here we review the growing literature which shows that ... 
NHDC and PHDC: Nonpropagating and propagating heat diffusion classifiers
(12th International Conference on Neural Information Processing, 2005)Abstract  By imitating the way that heat flows in a medium with a geometric structure, we propose two novel classification algorithms, Nonpropagating Heat Diffusion Classifier (NHDC) and Propagating Heat Diffusion ... 
Nonprincipal surface waves in deformed incompressible materials
(Elsevier, 2005)The Stroh formalism is applied to the analysis of infinitesimal surface wave propagation in a statically, finitely and homogeneously deformed isotropic halfspace. The free surface is assumed to coincide with one of the ... 
Nonlinear correction to the Euler buckling formula for compressed cylinders with guidedguided end conditions
(Springer, 201102)Euler's celebrated buckling formula gives the critical load N for the buckling of a slender cylindrical column with radius B and length L as N/([pi]^3 B^2 )=(E/4)(B/L)^2, where E is Young's modulus. Its derivation relies ... 
Nonlinear Euler buckling
(Royal Society Publishing, 200811)The buckling of hyperelastic incompressible cylindrical tubes of arbitrary length and thickness under compressive axial load is considered within the framework of nonlinear elasticity. Analytical and numerical methods for ... 
Nonlinear transverse waves in deformed dispersive solids
(Elsevier, 2008)We present a phenomenological approach to dispersion in nonlinear elasticity. A simple, thermomechanically sound, constitutive model is proposed to describe the (nondissipative) properties of a hyperelastic dispersive ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 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 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 stressdependent elastic moduli and wave speeds
(Oxford Journals, 20120330)On the basis of the general nonlinear theory of a hyperelastic material with initial stress, initially without consideration of the origin of the initial stress, we determine explicit expressions for the stressdependent ...
