Deformation Of Continental Crust Along A Transform Boundary, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Scott Bogue, Margaret Rusmore, Karen Dodson, Kenneth Farley, Glenn Woodsworth 2009 Occidental College

Deformation Of Continental Crust Along A Transform Boundary, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Scott Bogue, Margaret Rusmore, Karen Dodson, Kenneth Farley, Glenn Woodsworth

Scott Bogue

New structural, paleomagnetic, and apatite (U-Th)/He results from the continental margin inboard of the Queen Charlotte fault (∼54°N) delineate patterns of brittle faulting linked to transform development since ∼50 Ma. In the core of the orogen, ∼250 km from the transform, north striking, dip-slip brittle faults and vertical axis rotation of large crustal domains occurred after ∼50 Ma and before intrusion of mafic dikes at 20 Ma. By 20 Ma, dextral faulting was active in the core of the orogen, but extension had migrated toward the transform, continuing there until <9 Ma. Local tilting in the core of ...

We describe results from a beam test of a telescope consisting of three planes of single-crystal, diamond pixel detectors. This telescope is a prototype for a small-angle luminosity monitor, the Pixel Luminosity Telescope (PLT), for CMS. We recorded the pixel addresses and pulse heights of all pixels over threshold as well as the fast-or signals from all three telescope planes. We present results on the telescope performance including occupancies, pulse heights, fast-or efficiencies and particle tracking. These results show that the PLT design meets all required specifications.

Evolution Of Solitary Waves For A Perturbed Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Tim Marchant 2009 University of Wollongong

Evolution Of Solitary Waves For A Perturbed Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Tim Marchant

Tim Marchant

Soliton perturbation theory is used to determine the evolution of a solitary wave described by a perturbed nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Perturbation terms, which model wide classes of physically relevant perturbations, are considered. An analytical solution is found for the first-order correction of the evolving solitary wave. This solution for the solitary wave tail is in integral form and an explicit expression is found, for large time. Singularity theory, usually used for combustion problems, is applied to the large time expression for the solitary wave tail. Analytical results are obtained, such as the parameter regions in which qualitatively different types of ...


Measuring The Hiv/Aids Epidemic: Approaches And Challenges, Ron Brookmeyer 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

Measuring The Hiv/Aids Epidemic: Approaches And Challenges, Ron Brookmeyer

Ron Brookmeyer

In this article, the author reviews current approaches and methods for measuring the scope of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic and their strengths and weaknesses. In recent years, various public health agencies have revised statistical estimates of the scope of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The author considers the reasons underlying these revisions. New sources of data for estimating HIV prevalence have become available, such as nationally representative probability-based surveys. New technologies such as biomarkers that indicate when persons became infected are now used to determine HIV incidence rates. The author summarizes the main sources of ...

Electrochemical Glucose Sensors—Developments Using Electrostatic Assembly And Carbon Nanotubes For Biosensor Construction, Alice Harper, Mark Anderson 2009 Berry College

Electrochemical Glucose Sensors—Developments Using Electrostatic Assembly And Carbon Nanotubes For Biosensor Construction, Alice Harper, Mark Anderson

Mark R. Anderson

In 1962, Clark and Lyons proposed incorporating the enzyme glucose oxidase in the construction of an electrochemical sensor for glucose in blood plasma. In their application, Clark and Lyons describe an electrode in which a membrane permeable to glucose traps a small volume of solution containing the enzyme adjacent to a pH electrode, and the presence of glucose is detected by the change in the electrode potential that occurs when glucose reacts with the enzyme in this volume of solution. Although described nearly 50 years ago, this seminal development provides the general structure for constructing electrochemical glucose sensors that is ...

When Does A Category Built On A Lattice With A Monoidal Structure Have A Monoidal Structure?, Lawrence Stout 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

When Does A Category Built On A Lattice With A Monoidal Structure Have A Monoidal Structure?, Lawrence Stout

Lawrence N. Stout

In a word, sometimes. And it gets harder if the structure on L is not commutative. In this paper we consider the question of what properties are needed on the lattice L equipped with an operation * for several different kinds of categories built using Sets and L to have monoidal and monoidal closed structures. This works best for the Goguen category Set(L) in which membership, but not equality, is made fuzzy and maps respect membership. Commutativity becomes critical if we make the equality fuzzy as well. This can be done several ways, so a progression of categories is considered ...
