Recent Submissions

  • Ullah, Chhana; Unsicker, Sybille B.; Fellenberg, Christin; Constabel, C. Peter; Schmidt, Axel; Gershenzon, Jonathan; Hammerbacher, Almuth (Plant Physiology, 2017)
    Phenolic secondary metabolites are often thought to protect plants against attack by microbes, but their role in defense against pathogen infection in woody plants has not been investigated comprehensively. We studied the ...
  • Santos, Elias de Barros; Moher, Paleah; Ferlin, Stacy; Fostier, Anne Hélène; Mazali, Italo Odone; Telmer, Kevin; Brolo, Alexandre Guimarães (Scientific Reports, 2017)
    Mercury emissions from artisanal gold mining operations occurring in roughly 80 developing countries are a major workplace health hazard for millions of people as well as the largest contributor to global mercury pollution. ...
  • Xiao, Yao; Ma, Wenjun; Lu, Nan; Wang, Zhi; Wang, Nan; Zhai, Wenji; Kong, Lisheng; Qu, Guanzheng; Wang, Qiuxia; Wang, Junhui (Forests, 2019)
    Clones of Catalpa bungei and Catalpa fargesii f. duclouxii were studied over several years in central China to explore genetic variation in growth traits and to identify clones of high wood yield and high stability. The ...
  • Karlen, Dean; on behalf of the T2K Collaboration (Universe, 2019)
    The T2K long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment measures muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance in accelerator-produced neutrino and anti-neutrino beams. This presentation reports on the analysis ...
  • Pandey, Jagdish Narayan; Maurya, Jay Singh; Upadhyay, Santosh Kumar; Srivastava, Hari Mohan (Symmetry, 2019)
    In this paper, we define a continuous wavelet transform of a Schwartz tempered distribution f∈S′(Rn) with wavelet kernel ψ∈S(Rn) and derive the corresponding wavelet inversion formula interpreting convergence in the weak ...
  • Srivastava, Hari M.; Ahmad, Qazi Zahoor; Khan, Nasir; Khan, Nazar; Khan, Bilal (Mathematics, 2019)
    By using a certain general conic domain as well as the quantum (or q-) calculus, here we define and investigate a new subclass of normalized analytic and starlike functions in the open unit disk U. In particular, we find ...
  • Cowen, Laura L. E.; Besbeas, Panagiotis; Morgan, Byron J. T.; Schwarz, Carl J. (Biometrics, 2017)
    Batch marking provides an important and efficient way to estimate the survival probabilities and population sizes of wild animals. It is particularly useful when dealing with animals that are difficult to mark individually. ...
  • Cho, Nak Eun; Kumar, Sushil; Kumar, Virendra; Ravichandran, V.; Srivastava, Hari M. (Symmetry, 2019)
    The present paper aims to establish the first order differential subordination relations between functions with a positive real part and starlike functions related to the Bell numbers. In addition, several sharp radii ...
  • Mahto, Lakshman; Abbas, Syed; Hafayed, Mokhtar; Srivastava, Hari M. (Mathematics, 2019)
    In this work, we study an impulsive sub-diffusion equation as a fractional diffusion equation of order α∈(0,1) . Existence, uniqueness and regularity of solution of the problem is established via eigenfunction expansion. ...
  • Zobel, Donald B.; Antos, Joseph A. (Ecosphere, 2017)
    Disturbance is a key factor contributing to community organization. Deposition of tephra (aerially transported volcanic ejecta) is a widespread disturbance of global relevance, but its effects on ecosystems have received ...
  • Çağlar, Murat; Deniz, Erhan; Srivastava, H. M. (Turkish Journal of Mathematics, 2017)
    In the present paper, we obtain the upper bounds for the second Hankel determinant for certain subclasses of analytic and bi-univalent functions. Moreover, several interesting applications of the results presented here are ...
  • Srivastava, H. M.; Parmar, Rakesh K.; Chopra, Purnima (Journal of Nonlinear Sciences and Applications, 2017)
    Analogous to the recent generalizations of the familiar beta and hypergeometric functions by Lin et al. [S.-D. Lin, H. M. Srivastava, J.-C. Yao, Appl. Math. Inform. Sci., 9 (2015), 1731–1738], the authors introduce and ...
  • Yackel, John; Geldsetzer, Torsten; Mahmud, Mallik; Nandan, Vishnu; Howell, Stephen E. L.; Scharien, Randall K.; Lam, Hoi Ming (Remote Sensing, 2019)
    Ku- and C-band spaceborne scatterometer sigma nought (σ°) backscatter data of snow covered landfast first-year sea ice from the Canadian Arctic Archipelago are acquired during the winter season with coincident in situ ...
  • Goldblatt, Colin; Kavanagh, Lucas; Dewey, Maura (Geoscientific Model Development, 2017)
    Accurate radiative transfer calculation is fundamental to all climate modelling. For deep palaeoclimate, and increasingly terrestrial exoplanet climate science, this brings both the joy and the challenge of exotic atmospheric ...
  • Cox, Kieran D.; Black, Morgan J.; Filip, Natalia; Miller, Matthew R.; Mohns, Kayla; Mortimor, James; Freitas, Thaise R.; Greiter Loerzer, Raquel; Gerwing, Travis G.; Juanes, Francis; Dudas, Sarah E. (Ecology and Evolution, 2017)
    Diversity estimates play a key role in ecological assessments. Species richness and abundance are commonly used to generate complex diversity indices that are dependent on the quality of these estimates. As such, there is ...
  • Dalton, Christopher M.; EL-Sabaawi, Rana W.; Honeyfield, Dale C.; Auer, Soyna K.; Reznick, David N.; Flecker, Alexander S. (PLoS One, 2017)
    In many contexts, nutrient excretion by consumers can impact ecosystems by altering the availability of limiting nutrients. Variation in nutrient excretion can be predicted by mass balance models, most of which are premised ...
  • Hammond, S. Austin; Warren, Rene L.; Vandervalk, Benjamin P.; Kucuk, Erdi; Khan, Hamza; Gibb, Ewan A.; Pandoh, Pawan; Kirk, Heather; Zhao, Yongjun; Jones, Martin; Mungall, Andrew J.; Coope, Robin; Pleasance, Stephen; Moore, Richard A.; Holt, Robert A.; Round, Jessica M.; Ohora, Sara; Walle, Branden V.; Veldhoen, Nik; Helbing, Caren C.; Birol, Inanc (Nature Communications, 2017)
    Frogs play important ecological roles, and several species are important model organisms for scientific research. The globally distributed Ranidae (true frogs) are the largest frog family, and have substantial evolutionary ...
  • Ruge, Martin; Drnec, Jakub; Rahn, Björn; Reikowski, Finn; Harrington, David A.; Carlà, Francesco; Felici, Roberto; Stettner, Jochim; Magnussen, Olaf M. (Journal of The Electrochemical Society, 2017)
    The potential dependent surface structure of Pt(111) electrodes in electrochemical environment was studied by in situ crystal truncation rod measurements and in operando grazing incidence small angle X-ray scattering. ...
  • Johnson, Benjamin W.; Poulton, Simon W.; Goldblatt, Colin (Nature Communications, 2017)
    The Neoproterozoic Earth was punctuated by two low-latitude Snowball Earth glaciations. Models permit oceans with either total ice cover or substantial areas of open water. Total ice cover would make an anoxic ocean likely, ...
  • Holm, Thomas; Dahlstrøm, Per Kristian; Burheim, Odne S.; Sunde, Svein; Harrington, David A.; Seland, Frode (Electrochimica Acta, 2016)
    A method for high purity aqueous electrochemical experiments at temperatures above the normal boiling point of water and at temperatures up to 140 °C is described. A three-electrode cell in a self-pressurized glass autoclave ...
