  • Saylor MA 304 Topics in Applied Mathematics 

    Chui, Charles K. (2013)
    Mathematics was coined the queen of sciences by Carl Friedrich Gauss, one of the greatest mathematicians of all time. The name of Gauss is associated with essentially all areas of mathematics. Therefore to him, and most ...
  • Learning 2.0 for Associations 

    Cobb, Jeff (2010)
    Learning 2.0 is about much more than simply integrating social media into education. It is about maximizing the potential that the new opportunities for learning represent. Learners, of course, will take advantage of the ...

    Report providing a description of how the new technologies known as "Web 2.0" work, and how they may be used for an organization's professional development and other learning initiatives. Includes podcasting, video on ...
  • Open Access 

    Suber, Peter (2012)
    In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and is not, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery ...
  • Adjustment errors of sunstones in the first step of sky-polarimetric Viking navigation 

    Száz, Dénes; Farkas, Alexandra; Blahó, Miklós (2016)
    According to an old but still unproven theory, Viking navigators analysed the skylight polarization with dichroic cordierite or tourmaline, or birefringent calcite sunstones in cloudy/foggy weather. Combining these sunstones ...
  • Teaching in hunter– gatherer infancy 

    Hewlett, Barry S.; Roulette, Casey J. (2016)
    A debate exists as to whether teaching is part of human nature and central to understanding culture or whether it is a recent invention of Western, Educated, Industrial, Rich, Democratic cultures. Some social–cultural ...
  • Aremicrobes fundamentally different than macroorganisms? 

    Oliverio, Angela M.; Lahr, Daniel J. G.; Grant, Jessica (2015)
    This study reveals extensive phenotypic convergence based on the non-monophyly of genera and morphospecies of testate (shelled) amoebae. Using two independent markers, small subunit ribosomal DNA (ssu-rDNA) and mitochondrial ...
  • Prolonged transition time between colostrumand maturemilk in a bear, the giant panda,Ailuropoda melanoleuca 

    Griffiths, Kate; Hou, Rong; Wang, Hairui (2015)
    Bears produce the most altricial neonates of any placental mammal. We hypothesized that the transition from colostrum to mature milk in bears reflects a temporal and biochemical adaptation for altricial development and ...
  • Thermodynamics and kinetics of the FoF1-ATPase 

    Chapman, Brian; Loiselle, Denis (2016)
    We use the results of recent publications as vehicles with which to discuss the thermodynamics of the proton-driven mitochondrial FoF1-ATP synthase, focusing particularly on the possibility that there may be dissociation ...
  • Phylotranscriptomic analysis uncovers a wealth of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases variants in echinoderms 

    Clouse, Ronald M. (2015)
    Tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) help regulate the extracellular matrix (ECM) in animals, mostly by inhibiting matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). They are important activators of mutable collagenous tissue ...
  • Modelling humanmobility patterns using photographic data shared online 

    Barchiesi, Daniele; Preis, Tobias; Bishop, Steven (2015)
    Humans are inherently mobile creatures. The way we move around our environment has consequences for a wide range of problems, including the design of efficient transportation systems and the planning of urban areas. Here, ...
  • Estimating uncertainty and reliability of social network data using Bayesian inference 

    Farine, Damien R. (2015)
    Social network analysis provides a useful lens through which to view the structure of animal societies, and as a result its use is increasingly widespread. One challenge that many studies of animal social networks face is ...
  • Emergence of intercolonial variation in termite shelter tube patterns and prediction of its underlying mechanism 

    Mizumoto, Nobuaki; Kobayashi, Kazuya; Matsuura, Kenji (2015)
    Building behaviours occur in various organisms from bacteria to humans. Social insects build various structures such as large nests and underground galleries, achieved by self-organization. Structures built by social insects ...
  • Concordance on zebra stripes is not black and white 

    Larison, Brenda; J.Harrigan, Ryan; I. Rubenstein, Daniel (2015)
    We agree that the results of Larisonet al.[1]andCaroet al.[2] are largely congruent—however, we remain divided on their interpretation. Both papers assessed a number of variables for an association with striping. Larisonet ...
  • Differential responses of coral larvae to the colour of ambient light guide them to suitable settlement microhabitat 

    E. Strader, Marie; W. Davies, Sarah; V. Matz, Mikhail (2015)
    Reef-building corals produce planktonic planula larvae that must select an appropriate habitat to settle and spend the rest of their life, a behaviour that plays a critical role in survival. Here, we report that larvae ...
  • Seasonal changes in the altitudinal distribution of nocturnallymigrating birds during autumnmigration 

    A. La Sorte, Frank; M. Hochachka, Wesley; Farnsworth, Andrew (2015)
    Wind plays a significant role in the flight altitudes selected by nocturnally migrating birds. At mid-latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, atmospheric conditions are dictated by the polar-front jet stream, whose amplitude ...
