Testing Models for the Formation of the Equatorial Ridge on Saturn's Moon Iapetus via Crater Counting
Iapetus's equatorial ridge, visible in global views of the moon, is unique in the Solar System. The formation of this feature is likely attributed to a key event in the evolution of Iapetus, and various models have been ...
Long-wavelength topography on Mercury is not from folding of the lithosphere
Previous work suggested that the lithosphere of Mercury could undergo folding in response to global contraction, and indeed observations from the MESSENGER mission revealed several regions where long-wavelength topography ...
Copper-Catalyzed Aminothiolation of Terminal Alkynes with Tunable Regioselectivity
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-02-05)
Does God roll dice? Neutrality and determinism in evolutionary ecology
A tension between perspectives that emphasize deterministic versus stochastic processes has sparked controversy in ecology since pre-Darwinian times. The most recent manifestation of the contrasting perspectives arose with ...
ON THE COMPARISON OF STABLE AND UNSTABLE p-COMPLETION
(American Mathematical Society, 2019-02)
In this note we show that a p-complete nilpotent space X has a p-complete suspension spectrum if and only if its homotopy groups pi X-* are bounded p-torsion. In contrast, if pi X-* is not all bounded p-torsion, we locate ...
Promoting the Social and Emotional Learning of Millions of School Children
(SAGE Publications, 2019-01-18)
This brief article describes how I have applied my knowledge, skills, and dispositions as a psychological scientist to help make the world a better place for children and youth. Over the last 40 years, I have collaborated ...
Periodic Corrugations to Increase Efficiency of Thermophotovoltaic Emitting Structures
(AIP Publishing, 2019-02-06)
In this letter, we consider the question of designing insulator/metal thermovoltaic structures with periodically corrugated interfaces that give optimal performance based on the metric of useful power density. Using a Monte ...
