The mechanics of hyperactivation in adhered human sperm
Hyperactivation is an important phenomenon exhibited by mammalian sperm during the process of acquiring fertilization capacity. The majority of studies have focused on incubation-induced hyperactivation in non-human species, ...

A counterview of ‘An investigation of the false discovery rate and the misinterpretation of p-values’ by Colquhoun
In commenting on the instructive, comprehensive and entertainingly written article by Prof. Colquhoun (hereinafter referred to as ‘the author’), we state unequivocally that we have no truck with its motivation. Indeed, we ...
On themodularity of certain functions from the Gromov–Witten theory of elliptic orbifolds
In this paper, we study modularity of several functions which naturally arose in a recent paper of Lau and Zhou on open Gromov–Witten potentials of elliptic orbifolds. They derived a number of examples of indefinite theta ...
Response to comment by Loiselle & Ramchandra
I thank Loiselle and Ramchandra (hereafter ‘the authors’) for their interest. First, I should say that it might have been a mistake to use the term ‘false discovery rate’. This is so because the same term is used in the ...
A global optimization paradigmbased on change of measures
A global optimization framework, COMBEO (Change Of MeasureBasedEvolutionaryOptimization), is proposed. An important aspect in the development is a set of derivative-free additive directional terms, obtainable through a ...
