TRANSVERSE NONCOMMUTATIVE GEOMETRY OF FOLIATIONS
We define an L2-signature for proper actions on spaces of leaves of transversely oriented foliations with bounded geometry. This is achieved by using the Connes fibration to reduce the problem to the case of Riemannian ...
Relaxation Times for Chiral Transport Phenomena and Spin Polarization in Strongly Coupled Plasma
(American Physical Society, 2018-09)
We compute the dynamical relaxation times for chiral transport phenomena in a strongly coupled regime using the AdS/CFT correspondence. These relaxation times can be a useful proxy for the dynamical timescale for achieving ...
A review on probabilistic models used in microbiome studies

Instrumentation for vibrational circular dichroism spectroscopy. Method comparison and newer developments
Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) is a widely used standard method for determination of absolute stereochemistry, and somewhat less so for biomolecule characterization and following dynamic processes. Over the last ...
The Skull as Mediator between Object and Subject: Gall’s Phrenology and Goethe’s Scientific Method
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-07-05)
The article considers Goethe’s engagement with the doctrines of Franz Joseph Gall, the founder of phrenology. Using the sketch of their first face-to-face meeting in the Tag- und Jahreshefte of 1805 as a guide, it argues ...
Co-catalysis: Role of Organic Cations in Oxygen Evolution Reaction on Oxide Electrodes
(American Chemical Society, 2018-07-31)
Cocatalysis is a promising approach toward enhanced electrocatalytic activity. We report such synergic
Teachers’ perspectives on the consequences of managing classroom climate.
(Springer (part of Springer Nature): Springer Open Choice Hybrid Journals, 2018-12)
Background: Well-managed, emotionally positive preschool classrooms promote academic and social success (Mashburn et al., 2008). Therefore, learning standards and practitioner guidelines emphasize the maintenance of a ...
Vibrational circular dichroism sheds new light on the competitive effects of crowding and β-synuclein on the fibrillation process of α-synuclein
(American Chemical Society, 2018-10-03)
The effects of crowding, using the crowding agent Ficoll 70, and the presence of beta-synuclein on the fibrillation process of alpha-synuclein were studied by spectroscopic techniques, transmission electron microscopy and ...
Well–Posedness and Analyticity of Solutions to a Water Wave Problem with Viscosity
The water wave problem models the free–surface evolution of an ideal fluid under the influence of gravity and surface tension. The governing equations are a central model in the study of open ocean wave propagation, but ...
Inhibiting gustatory thalamus or medial amygdala has opposing effects on taste neophobia
Taste neophobia is a feeding system defense mechanism that limits consumption of an unknown, and therefore potentially dangerous, edible until the post-ingestive consequences are experienced. We found that transient ...
