Additive Negative Effects Of Anthropogenic Sedimentation And Warming On The Survival Of Coral Recruits, 2017 Nova Southeastern University

#### Additive Negative Effects Of Anthropogenic Sedimentation And Warming On The Survival Of Coral Recruits, Francesca Fourney, Joana Figueiredo

*Joana Figueiredo*

Corals worldwide are facing population declines due to global climate change and local anthropogenic impacts. Global climate change effects are hard to tackle but recent studies show that some coral species can better handle climate change stress when provided with additional energy resources. The local stressor that most undermines energy acquisition is sedimentation because it impedes coral heterotrophic feeding and their ability to photosynthesize. To investigate if reducing local sedimentation will enable corals to better endure ocean warming, we quantitatively assessed the combined effects of increased temperature and sedimentation (concentration and turbidity) on the survival of coral recruits of the ...

Experimenting With The Identity (Xy)Z = Y(Zx), 2017 Iowa State University

#### Experimenting With The Identity (Xy)Z = Y(Zx), Irvin Roy Hentzel, David P. Jacobs, Sekhar V. Muddana

*Irvin Roy Hentzel*

An experiment with the nonassociative algebra program Albert led to the discovery of the following surprising theorem. *Let G be a groupoid satisfying the identity (xy)z = y(zx). Then for products in G involving at least five elements, all factors commute and associate.* A corollary is that any semiprime ring satisfying this identity must be commutative and associative, generalizing a known result of Chen.

Semiprime Locally(-1, 1) Ring With Minimal Condition, 2017 Iowa State University

#### Semiprime Locally(-1, 1) Ring With Minimal Condition, Irvin R. Hentzel, H. F. Smith

*Irvin Roy Hentzel*

Let L be a left ideal of a right alternative ring A with characteristic ::/=2. If L is maximal and nil, then L is a two-sided ideal. If L is minimal, then it is either a two-sided ideal, or the ideal it generates is contained in the right nucleus of A. In particular, if A is prime, then a minimal left ideal of A must be a two-sided ideal. Let A be a semiprime locally (-1, 1) ring with characteristic ::1=2, 3. Then A is isomorphic to a subdirect sum of an alternative ring, a strong (-1, 1) ring ...

Minimal Identities Of Bernstein Alegebras, 2017 Iowa State University

#### Minimal Identities Of Bernstein Alegebras, Irvin R. Hentzel, Ivan Correa, Luiz Antionio Peresi

*Irvin Roy Hentzel*

We construct the minimal identities for Bernstein algebras, exceptional Bernstein algebras and normal Bernstein algebras. We use the technique of processing identities via the representation of the symmetric groups. The computer algorithms for creating the standard tableaus and the integral representations are summarized.

Counterexamples In Nonassociative Algebra, 2017 Iowa State University

#### Counterexamples In Nonassociative Algebra, Irvin R. Hentzel, Luiz Antonio Peresi

*Irvin Roy Hentzel*

We present a method of constructing counterexamples in nonassociative algebra. The heart of the computation is constructing a matrix of identities and reducing this matrix (usually very sparse) to row canonical form. The example is constructed from the entries in one column of this row canonical form. While this procedure is not polynomial in the degree of the identity, several shortcuts are listed which shorten calculations. Several examples are given.

On Prime Right Alternative Algebras And Alternators, 2017 Italian National Research Council

#### On Prime Right Alternative Algebras And Alternators, Giulia Maria Piacentini Cattaneo, Irvin R. Hentzel

*Irvin Roy Hentzel*

We study subvarieties of the variety of right alternative algebras over a field of characteristic t2,t3 such that the defining identities of the variety force the span of the alternators to be an ideal and do not force an algebra with identity element to be alternative. We call a member of such a variety a right alternative alternator ideal algebra. We characterize the algebras of this subvariety by finding an identity which holds if and only if an algebra belongs to the subvariety. We use this identity to prove that if R is a prime, right alternative alternator ideal ...

Long Simulation Of Regional Climate As A Sequence Of Short Segments, 2017 Iowa State University

#### Long Simulation Of Regional Climate As A Sequence Of Short Segments, Zaitao Pan, Eugene Takle, William Gutowski, Richard Turner

*William J. Gutowski, Jr.*

Regional climate simulations are long time integrations over an open system where the atmosphere over part of the model domain (boundary zones) is updated periodically. Model reinitialization after a long period of integration can allow several segments of a long simulation to be run in parallel and also minimize possible drift caused by accumulated model errors. However, the spinup problems introduced by each additional restart must be addressed. The necessity and feasibility of subdividing long integrations is investigated by means of a series of experiments in which the authors examine the effects of reinitialization frequency and the relative importance of ...

#### Climate Models: An Assessment Of Strengths And Limitations, David C. Bader, Curtis Covey, William J. Gutowski Jr., Isaac M. Held, Kenneth E. Kunkel, Ronald L. Miller, Robin T. Tokmakian, Minghua H. Zhang

*William J. Gutowski, Jr.*

Executive Summary Scientists extensively use mathematical models of Earth’s climate, executed on the most powerful computers available, to examine hypotheses about past and present-day climates. Development of climate models is fully consistent with approaches being taken in many other fields of science dealing with very complex systems. These climate simulations provide a framework within which enhanced understanding of climate-relevant processes, along with improved observations, are merged into coherent projections of future climate change. This report describes the models and their ability to simulate current climate. The science of climate modeling has matured through finer spatial resolution, the inclusion of ...

Long-Term Climate Change: Projections, Commitments And Irreversibility, 2017 Iowa State University

Weaver, Michael Wehner

*William J. Gutowski, Jr.*

Executive Summary This chapter assesses long-term projections of climate change for the end of the 21st century and beyond, where the forced signal depends on the scenario and is typically larger than the internal variability of the climate system. Changes are expressed with respect to a baseline period of 1986–2005, unless otherwise stated.

Pendleton, Ruben D. Torrenegra, Oscar E. Rodriguez, Sam Harirforoosh, Maria Ballester, Janet Lightner, Koyamangalath Krishnan, Victoria P. Ramsauer

*Maria Ballester*

Over 4000 flavonoids have been identified so far and among these, many are known to have antitumor activities. The basis of the relationships between chemical structures, type and position of substituent groups and the effects these compounds exert specifically on cancer cells are not completely elucidated. Here we report the differential cytotoxic effects of two flavone isomers on human cancer cells from breast (MCF7, SK-BR-3), colon (Caco-2, HCT116), pancreas (MIA PaCa, Panc 28), and prostate (PC3, LNCaP) that vary in differentiation status and tumorigenic potential. These flavones are derived from plants of the family *Asteraceae*, genera *Gnaphalium* and *Achyrocline* reputed ...
