  • Sedgwick, Monique G.; Awosoga, Olu A.; Grigg, Lance; Durnin, Jenna-Marie (Sciedu PressHealth SciencesEducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    The purpose of this study was to explore how a smartphone app influences undergraduate nursing students’ perceptions of their critical thinking and clinical decision making ability at the point of care. Using a pretest-posttest ...
  • Paquette, Sarah-Jo; Stanford, Kim; Thomas, James E.; Reuter, Tim (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesAlberta Agriculture and ForestryUniversity of Lethbridge, 2018)
    Often Escherichia coli are harmless and/or beneficial bacteria inhabiting the gastrointestinal tract of livestock and humans. However, Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) have been linked to human disease. Cattle are the ...
  • Das, Saurya; Vagenas, Elias C. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of LethbridgeAcademy of Athenshttps://doi.org/10.1209/0295-5075/96/50005, 2015-12-22)
    We argue that a quantum aether is consistent with the principle of relativity and can provide an economical way of having an invariant quantum gravity or Planck scale. We also show that it may change the effective scale ...

    We investigate the effects of Quantum Gravity on the Planck era of the universe. In particular, using different versions of the Generalized Uncertainty Principle and under specific conditions we find that the main Planck ...
  • Dutta, Anindita; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2016)
    Quantum theory of gravity deals with the physics of the gravitational field at Planck length scale (10^(−35) m). Even though it is experimentally hard to reach the Planck length scale, one can look for evidence of quantum ...
  • Das, Saurya; Ramadevi, P.; Yajnik, U. A.; Sule, A. (ElsevierUniversity of New BrunswickIndian Institute of Technology Bombay, 2003)
    It has been argued by several authors, using different formalisms, that the quantum mechanical spectrum of black hole horizon area is discrete and uniformly spaced. Recently it was shown that two such approaches, namely ...
  • Barvinsky, Andrei; Das, Saurya; Kunstatter, Gabor (ElsevierLebedev Physics Institute and Lebedev Research Center in PhysicsUniversity of Winnipeg, 2001)
    We quantize the spherically symmetric sector of generic charged black holes. Thermal properties are incorporated by imposing periodicity in Euclidean time, with period equal to the inverse Hawking temperature of the black ...
