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 ...
MOST BOSON QUANTUM STATES ARE ALMOST MAXIMALLY ENTANGLED
(American Mathematical Society, 2018-09-04)
The geometric measure E of entanglement of an m qubit quantum state takes maximal possible value m. In previous work of Gross, Flammia, and Eisert, it was shown that E ≥ m − O(log m) with high probability as m → ∞. They ...
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 ...
Social Landscaping in the Forests of Mexico: An Environmental Interpretation of Cardenismo, 1934-1940
(Duke University Press, 2012-02)
Picture this! Effects of photographs, diagrams, animations, and sketching on learning and beliefs about learning from a geoscience text
Many studies have demonstrated that illustrating expository science texts with images that are interesting, but irrelevant for understanding the causal relations underlying scientific phenomena, can cause seduction effects ...
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 ...
Encoding DNA sequences by integer chaos game representation
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2017-12-19)
Motivation: DNA sequences are fundamental for encoding genetic information. The genetic information may be understood not only by symbolic sequences but also from the hidden signals inside the sequences. The symbolic ...
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 ...
Coordination Event Detection and Initiator Identification in Time Series Data
(Association for Computing Machinery, 2018-07)
Behavior initiation is a form of leadership and is an important aspect of social organization that affects the processes of group formation, dynamics, and decision-making in human societies and other social animal species. ...
Linked (Im)mobilities and the Relational Politics of Movement in Post-Earthquake Nepal
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-02-28)
This article highlights the importance of various (im)mobilities which were induced by the massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015. Around 100 news articles published in the two weeks following ...
