  • Johnson, Benjamin W.; Goldblatt, Colin (Geochemical Perspectives Letters, 2017)
    Recent work indicates the presence of substantial geologic nitrogen reservoirs in the mantle and continental crust. Importantly, this geologic nitrogen has exchanged between the atmosphere and the solid Earth over time. ...

J.; Davies, G. R.; Elsworth, Y. P.; Lund, M. N.; Miglio, A.; Mosser, B. (The Astronomical Journal, 2017)
    Data Release 5 (DR5) of the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) is the fifth data release from a magnitude-limited (9 < I < 12) survey of stars randomly selected in the Southern Hemisphere. The RAVE medium-resolution spectra ...
  • Araci, Serkan; Acikgoz, Mehmet; Diagana, Toka; Srivastava, H.M. (Journal of Nonlinear Sciences and Applications, 2017)
    In this article, a new q-generalization of the Apostol-Euler polynomials is introduced using the usual q-exponential function. We make use of such a generalization to derive several properties arising from the q-umbral calculus.
  • Lawler, S. M.; Shankman, C.; Kaib, N.; Bannister, M. T.; Gladman, B.; Kavelaars, J. J. (The Astronomical Journal, 2017)
    The orbital element distribution of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) with large pericenters has been suggested to be influenced by the presence of an undetected, large planet at >200 au from the Sun. To find additional ...
  • Mahmood, Shahid; Raza, Nusrat; AbuJarad, Eman S.A.; Srivastava, Gautam; Srivastava, H.M.; Malik, Sarfraz Nawaz (Symmetry, 2019)
    This article presents certain families of analytic functions regarding q-starlikeness and q-convexity of complex order γ(γ∈C\{0}) . This introduced a q-integral operator and certain subclasses of the newly introduced classes ...
  • Srivastava, H.M.; Fernandez, Arran; Baleanu, Dumitru (Mathematics, 2019)
    We consider the well-known Mittag–Leffler functions of one, two and three parameters, and establish some new connections between them using fractional calculus. In particular, we express the three-parameter Mittag–Leffler ...
  • Chung, Ken-Jen; Liao, Jui-Jung; Lin, Shy-Der; Chuang, Sheng-Tu; Srivastava, H.M. (Mathematics, 2019)
    In the year 2004, Chang and Teng investigated an inventory model for deteriorating items in which the supplier not only provides a cash discount, but also allows a permissible delay in payments. The main purpose of the ...
  • Christensen, Chloe L.; Ashmead, Rhea E.; Choy, Francis Y. M. (Diseases, 2019)
    Although individually uncommon, rare diseases collectively account for a considerable proportion of disease impact worldwide. A group of rare genetic diseases called the mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are characterized by ...
  • Mahmood, Shahid; Srivastava, Gautam; Srivastava, H.M.; Abujarad, Eman S.A.; Arif, Muhammad; Ghani, Fazal (Symmetry, 2019)
    In the present research paper, our aim is to introduce a new subfamily of meromorphic p-valent (multivalent) functions. Moreover, we investigate sufficiency criterion for such defined family.
  • Gasbarroa, Ryan; Chub, Jackson W.F.; Tunnicliffe, Verena (Journal of Marine Systems, 2019)
    As global ocean deoxygenation proceeds and the frequency of extreme low-oxygen (hypoxic) events increases, seafloor ecosystems will inevitably be affected. Our study examines how benthic community responses scale with the ...
  • Schroeder, Sarah B.; Dupont, Colleen; Boyer, Leanna; Juanes, Francis; Costa, Maycira (Global Ecology and Conservation, 2019)
    The distribution and abundance of the canopy-forming kelp Nereocystis luetkeana is of increasing concern for environmental management and conservation in coastal regions due to its importance as a foundation species. Mapping ...
  • Sun, Tianhaozhe; Wang, Kelin; Fujiwara, Toshiya; Kodaira, Shuichi; He, Jiangheng (Nature Communications, 2017)
    During the 2011 magnitude 9 Tohoku-oki earthquake, very large slip occurred on the shallowest part of the subduction megathrust. Quantitative information on the shallow slip is of critical importance to distinguishing ...
  • Ahmad, Bashir; Alghanmi, Madeaha; Alsaedi, Ahmed; Srivastava, Hari M.; Ntouyas, Sotiris K. (Mathematics, 2019)
    In this paper, we establish sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions for a nonlinear Langevin equation based on Liouville-Caputo-type generalized fractional differential operators of different orders, supplemented ...
  • Pinto, Carla M.A.; Carvalho, Ana R.M.; Baleanu, Dumitru; Srivastava, Hari M. (Mathematics, 2019)
    We propose a fractional order model to study the efficacy of the Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) within-host dynamics, in the presence of the HIV latent reservoir. Latent reservoirs ...
  • Marques, Piata; Frauendorf, Therese; Warbanski, Misha; Zandonà, Eugenia; Phillip, Dawn; El-Sabaawi, Rana (2019-07-02)
    The effect of predation on prey is often studied at the population level, with little regard to the effects within the prey population. In this paper we evaluate intrapopulation variation in resource use and gut length of ...

S.; Ling, Victor; Xing, Qing-He; Wang, Jian-She (Hepatology, 2017)
    Hereditary cholestasis in childhood and infancy with normal serum gamma‐glutamyltransferase (GGT) activity is linked to several genes. Many patients, however, remain genetically undiagnosed. Defects in myosin VB (MYO5B; ...
  • Ingdal, Mats; Johnsen, Roy; Harrington, David A. (Electrochimica Acta, 2019)
    The Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) is a powerful way to distinguish between models. It considers both the goodness-of-fit and the number of parameters in the model, but has been little used for immittance data. Application ...
  • Harrington, David A. (ECS Transactions, 2013)
    The effect of sweep rate on the validity of impedance measurements made dynamically when sweeping the potential is investigated by numerical solution of the differential equations for a simple adsorption reaction. The same ...
  • Harrington, David A.; Driessche, P. van den (Electrochimica Acta, 2011-09)
    The utility and limitations of using equivalent circuits to analyse electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) data for electrochemical reaction mechanisms are reviewed. The difficulty of assigning physical meaning to ...
  • Dahlstro̸m, Per K.; Harrington, David A.; Seland, F. (Electrochimica Acta, 2012)
    Bulk CO oxidation on smooth polycrystalline platinum was studied with a rotating disk electrode and cyclic voltammetry in CO-saturated 0.5 M sulfuric acid. The reaction rate was modelled with differential equations. The ...
