    • A note on the Schur-finiteness of linear sections 

      Trigo Neri Tabuada, Goncalo Jorge (International Press of Boston, 2018)
      Making use of the recent theory of noncommutative motives, we prove that Schur-finiteness in the setting of Voevodsky’s mixed motives is invariant under homological projective duality. As an application, we show that the ...

      Background: Vascular remodeling, the dynamic dimensional change in face of stress, can assume different directions as well as magnitudes in atherosclerotic disease. Classical measurements rely on reference to segments at ...
    • A Novel Analysis Method for Paired-Sample Microbial Ecology Experiments 

      Techtmann, Stephen M.; Fortney, Julian L.; Bastidas-Oyanedel, Juan R.; Rodríguez, Jorge; Hazen, Terry C.; e.a. (Public Library of Science, 2016-05)
      Many microbial ecology experiments use sequencing data to measure a community’s response to an experimental treatment. In a common experimental design, two units, one control and one experimental, are sampled before and ...
    • Novel approach for 1D resistivity inversion using the systematically determined optimum number of layers 

      Alali, Ammar Mohammed; Morgan, Frank Dale (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2017-09)
      Determining the correct number of layers as input for 1D resistivity inversion is important for constructing a model that well represents the subsurface. In most electrical resistivity inversions, the number of layers is ...
