Tate's and Yoshida's theorems on control of transfer for fusion systems
(201003)We prove analogues of results of Tate and Yoshida on control of transfer for fusion systems. This requires the notions of pgroup residuals and transfer maps in cohomology for fusion systems. As a corollary, we obtain a ... 
Temperature effects on brain tissue in compression
(2012)Extensive research has been carried out for at least 50 years to understand the mechanical properties of brain tissue in order to understand the mechanisms of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The observed large variability ... 
Temperaturedependent phenotypic variation of Campylobacter jejuni lipooligosaccharides
(201011)Background:Campylobacter jejuni is a major bacterial cause of foodborne enteritis, and its lipooligosaccharide (LOS) plays an initiating role in the development of the autoimmune neuropathy, GuillainBarré syndrome, by ... 
TeV and Multiwavelength Observations of Mrk 421 in 20062008
(2011)We report on TeV gammaray observations of the blazar Mrk 421 (redshift of 0.031) with the VERITAS observatory and the Whipple 10m Cherenkov telescope. The excellent sensitivity of VERITAS allowed us to sample the TeV ... 
TeV GammaRay Observations of the Perseus and Abell 2029 Galaxy Clusters
(2006)Galaxy clusters might be sources of TeV gamma rays emitted by highenergy protons and electrons accelerated by large scale structure formation shocks, galactic winds, or active galactic nuclei. Furthermore, gamma rays may ... 
Third and fourthorder elasticity of biological soft tissues
(Acoustical Society of America, 20100124)In the theory of weakly nonlinear elasticity, Hamilton et al. [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 116, 4144 (2004)] identified W = I2+(A/3)I3+DI22 as the fourthorder expansion of the strainenergy density for incompressible isotropic ... 
The third dimension of reading the sugar code by lectins: design of glycoclusters with cyclic scaffolds as tools with the aim to define correlations between spatial presentation and activity.
(MDPI, 20130404)Coding of biological information is not confined to nucleic acids and proteins. Endowed with the highest level of structural versatility among biomolecules, the glycan chains of cellular glycoconjugates are wellsuited to ... 
Third and fourthorder constants of incompressible soft solids and the acoustoelastic effect.
(Acoustical Society of America, 201002)Acoustoelasticity is concerned with the propagation of smallamplitude waves in deformed solids. Results previously established for the incremental elastodynamics of exact nonlinear elasticity are useful for the determination ... 
Threedimensional Magnetotelluric Inversion
(200801)The main objective of my PhD research is developing a better understanding of the mathematics, physics and numerical aspects of 3D MT inversion. This should lead to a working software that allows inversion of MT datasets ... 
Timeresolved fluorescence microspectroscopy for characterizing crude oils in bulk and hydrocarbon bearing fluid inclusions.
(Ingenta, 2004)Timeresolved fluorescence data was collected from a series of 23 bulk crude petroleum oils and six microscopic hydrocarbonbearing fluid inclusions (HCFI). The data was collected using a diode laser fluorescence lifetime ... 
Tissue viability imaging of skin microcirculation following exposure to Cold Air (110°C) and Cold Water (8°C)
(CIAFEL, 2013)Cryotherapy is currently used in various clinical, rehabilitative and sporting settings. However, very little is known regarding the impact of cooling on the microcirculatory response. Objectives: The present study sought ... 
Torsion instability of soft solid cylinders
(Oxford Open Journals, 20131210)The application of pure torsion to a long and thin cylindrical rod is known to provoke a twisting instability, evolving from an initial kink to a knot. In the torsional parallelplate rheometry of stubby cylinders, the ... 
Torus Chiral nPoint Functions for Free Boson and Lattice Vertex Operator Algebras
(2002)We obtain explicit expressions for all genus one chiral npoint functions for free bosonic and lattice vertex operator algebras. We also consider the elliptic properties of these functions. 
Torus nPoint Functions for $\mathbb{R}$graded Vertex Operator Superalgebras and Continuous Fermion Orbifolds
(2007)We consider genus one npoint functions for a vertex operator superalgebra with a real grading. We compute all npoint functions for rank one and rank two fermion vertex operator superalgebras. In the rank two fermion case, ... 
Tracking potential sources of peak ozone concentrations in the upper troposphere over the Arabian Gulf region.
(Elsevier (Science Direct), 20141113)In August 2013, the Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI), was the first to launch temporally highly resolved ozonesondes in the Middle East region. The data from 20 launches consistently show changes in ... 
Transverse waves in nonlinearly elastic solids and the MilnePinney equation
(SAGE Journals, 20110817)We establish a connection between the general equations of nonlinear elastodynamics and the nonlinear ordinary differential equation of Pinney [Proc Amer Math Soc 1950; 1: 681]. As a starting point, we use the exact ... 
Twisted molecular magnets
(RSC, 20120905)The use of derivatised salicylaldoximes in manganese chemistry has led to the synthesis of a family of approximately fifty hexanuclear ([MnIII6]) and thirty trinuclear ([MnIII3]) SingleMolecule Magnets (SMMs). Deliberate, ... 
A twoweight scheme for a timedependent advectiondiffusion problem
(2011)We consider a family of twoweight finite difference schemes for a timedependent advectiondiffusion problem. For a given uniform gridspacing in time and space, and for a fixed value of advection and diffusion parameters, ...
