    Several vital cellular processes are preformed by large ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. In archaeal and eukaryotic cells one example of these essential RNP particles is the box C/D sRNP. In archaea, this complex is ...

    Evidence from electrophysiology suggests that non-human primates produce reach-to-grasp movements based on their functional end-goal rather than on the biomechanical requirements of the movement. However, the invasiveness ...

    We study the automorphisms of a Cayley graph that preserve its natural edge-colouring. More precisely, we are interested in groups G, such that every such automorphism of every connected Cayley graph on G has a very simple ...

    There is an interesting connection between cardinality of language and the distinction of lingua characterica from calculus rationator. Calculus-type languages have only a countable number of sentences, and only a single ...

    Satisfiability problem is the first problem known to be NP-complete [8, 28]. In this thesis, we have studied the minimization version of the satisfiability problem called the MINSAT. Given a set of boolean variables and ...

    We attempt to determine the structure of the automorphism group of a generic circulant graph. We first show that almost all circulant graphs have automorphism groups as small as possible. The second author has conjectured ...

    Efficient determination of large sparse Hessian matrices leads to solving many optimization problems. Exploiting sparsity and symmetry of the Hessian matrix can reduce the number of function evaluations required to determine ...
  • Roussel, Marc R. (Biomath ForumArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and BiochemistryUniversity of Lethbridge, 2013)
    A previously studied model of prokaryotic transcription [Roussel and Zhu, Bull. Math. Biol. 68 (2006) 1681--1713] is revisited. The first four moments of the distribution of transcription times are obtained analytically ...

    Evaluation of the Hessian matrix of a scalar function is a subproblem in many numerical optimization algorithms. For large-scale problems often the Hessian matrix is sparse and structured, and it is preferable to exploit ...

    Many theories have been put forward to explain the origins of right-handedness in humans. Here we present evidence that this preference may stem in part from a right hand advantage in grasping for feeding. Thirteen ...

    We study the solutions of certain congruences in different rings. The congruences include a^p-1 ≡ 1 (mod p^2); for integer a > 1 and prime p with p does not divide by a, and a^φ(m) ≡ 1 (mod m^2), for integer m with ...

    Carbon flux models based on light use efficiency (LUE), such as the MOD17 algorithm, have proved difficult to parameterize because of uncertainties in the LUE term, which is usually estimated from meteorological variables ...
