  • The salvo combat model with a sequential exchange of fire 

    Armstrong, Michael J. (Palgrave, 2014)
    This paper develops a version of the stochastic salvo combat model in which the exchange of fire is sequential, rather than simultaneous. This sequential-fire version is built by modifying the equations in the original ...
  • The salvo combat model with area fire 

    Armstrong, Michael J. (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2013-12)
    This paper analyzes versions of the salvo model of missile combat where area fire is used by one or both sides in a battle. While these models share some properties with the area fire Lanchester model and the aimed fire ...
  • Saturation of SERCA's lipid annulus may protect against its thermal inactivation. 

    Fajardo, Val Andrew; Trojanowski, Natalie S.; Castelli, Laura; Miotto, Paula; Amoye, Foyinsola; Ward, Wendy E.; Tupling, A. Russell; LeBlanc, Paul (Elsevier, 2017-01-26)
    The sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca2+-ATPase (SERCA) pumps are integral membrane proteins that catalyze the active transport of Ca2+ into the sarcoplasmic reticulum, thereby eliciting muscle relaxation. SERCA pumps are ...
  • Scholarship as a Conversation: A Metaphor for Librarian-ESL Instructor Collaboration 

    Bordonaro, Karen (2015)
    Invoking the metaphor of scholarship as a conversation offers academic librarians an excellent way to connect information literacy to university ESL (English as a second language) classes. This article describes how this ...
  • Seasonal reproductive endothermy in tegu lizards 

    Tattersall, Glenn J; Leite, Cleo A.C.; Sanders, Colin E; Cadena, Viviana; Andrade, Denis V; Abe, Augusto S; Milsom, William K (Science Advances, 2016-01)
  • Seasonal reproductive endothermy in tegu lizards 

    Tattersall, Glenn J; Leite, Cleo A.C.; Sanders, Colin E; Cadena, Viviana; Andrade, Denis V; Abe, Augusto S; Milsom, William K (2016)
    With some notable exceptions, small ectothermic vertebrates are incapable of endogenously sustaining a body temperature substantially above ambient temperature. This view was challenged by our observations of nighttime ...
  • Soil-Transmitted Helminth Infections and Nutritional Status in School-age Children from Rural Communities in Honduras 

    Sanchez, Ana Lourdes; Gabrie, Jose Antonio; Usuanlele, Mary-Theresa; Rueda, Maria Mercedes (PLoS, 2013-08-08)
    Background: Soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections are endemic in Honduras and efforts are underway to decrease their transmission. However, current evidence is lacking in regards to their prevalence, intensity and ...
  • Soil-Transmitted Helminths, Poverty, and Malnutrition in Honduran Children Living in Remote Rural Communities 

    Sanchez, Ana Lourdes; Gabrie, Jose Antonio; Canales, Maritza; Rueda, Maria Mercedes; Fontecha, Gustavo Adolfo; Mason, Patrick W.; Bearman, Gonzalo; Stevens, Michael P. (Libertas Academica, 2016-02)
    Soil-transmitted helminth (STH) infections are endemic in Honduras, but their prevalence according to the levels of poverty in the population has not been examined. The present cross-sectional study is aimed to determine ...
  • Some Travelling Wave Solutions of KdV-Burgers Equation 

    Rab, Md Abdur; Mia, Abdus Sattar; Akter, Tania (Hikari Ltd, 2012)
    In this paper we study the extended Tanh method to obtain some exact solutions of KdV-Burgers equation. The principle of the Tanh method has been explained and then apply to the nonlinear KdV- Burgers evolution equation. ...
  • A Stochastic Salvo Model Analysis of the Battle of the Coral Sea 

    Armstrong, Michael J.; Powell, Michael B. (Military Operations Research Society (MORS), 2005)
    In this work we study the Battle of the Coral Sea using a stochastic version of the salvo combat model. We begin by estimating the range of probable alternative results for the battle, given the forces employed; i.e., if ...
  • A stochastic salvo model for naval surface combat 

    Armstrong, Michael J. (Institute For Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS), 2005)
    In this work we propose a stochastic version of the salvo model for modern naval surface combat. We derive expressions for the mean and variance of surviving force strengths and for the probabilities of the possible salvo ...
  • Stories of Informal Mentorship: Recognizing the Voices of Mentees in Academic Libraries 

    MacKinnon, Colleen; Shepley, Susan (Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research, 2014-04-28)
    Based on the 2014 OLA Super Conference session “Mentorship in Academic Libraries: A Universe of Possibilities,” this article explores the benefits of informal mentorship in its various forms and how librarians are embracing ...
  • Structure-function relationships of tachykinin peptides from octopus venoms 

    Ruder, Tim; Ormerod, Kiel; Brust, Andreas; Abid Ali, Syed; Manchadi, Mary-Louise Roy; Ventura, Sabatino; Undheim, Eivind AB; Mercier, Joffre; King, Glenn F.; Alewood, Paul F.; Fry, Bryan G. (Elsevier, 2013-04)
  • A survey of the machine interference problem 

    Haque, Lani; Armstrong, Michael J. (Elsevier, 2007)
    This paper surveys the research published on the machine interference problem since the 1985 review by Stecke & Aronson. After introducing the basic model, we discuss the literature along several dimensions. We then note ...
  • Targeting inflammation to influence mood following spinal cord injury: a randomized clinical trial 

    Allison, David; Ditor, David (Journal of Neuroinflammation, 2015)
    Background: The purpose of the present study was to examine the efficacy of targeting inflammation as a means of improving mood following spinal cord injury (SCI) and explore the potential mechanisms of action. Methods: ...
  • Thermoregulatory behavior and orientation preference in bearded dragons 

    Tattersall, Glenn J; Black, Ian RG (Elsevier, 2017)
    Animals commit time and energy to achieve and maintain thermally optimality, defined as the range of temperatures which maintains physiological processes operating at, or near, maximum conditions (Dewitt, 1967; Huey and ...
  • To repeat or not to repeat a course 

    Armstrong, Michael J.; Biktimirov, Ernest N. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
