  • Multiple blood feeding in mosquitoes shortens the Plasmodium falciparum incubation period and increases malaria transmission potential 

    Shaw, W. Robert; Holmdahl, Inga E.; Itoe, Maurice A.; Werling, Kristine; Marquette, Meghan; Paton, Douglas G.; Singh, Naresh; Buckee, Caroline O.; Childs, Lauren M.; Catteruccia, Flaminia (PLOS, 2020-12-31)
    Many mosquito species, including the major malaria vector Anopheles gambiae, naturally undergo multiple reproductive cycles of blood feeding, egg development and egg laying in their lifespan. Such complex mosquito behavior ...
  • The impact of within-vector parasite development on the extrinsic incubation period 

    Childs, Lauren M.; Prosper, Olivia F. (2020-10-07)

    The SunPy Project developed a 13-question survey to understand the software and hardware usage of the solar-physics community. Of the solar-physics community, 364 members across 35 countries responded to our survey. We ...
  • New exotic 4-manifolds via Luttinger surgery on Lefschetz fibrations 

    Akhmedov, Anar; Saglam, Kadriye Nur (WORLD SCIENTIFIC, 2015-01-01)
    In [Small exotic 4-manifolds, Algebr. Geom. Topol. 8 (2008) 1781-1794], the first author constructed the first known example of exotic minimal symplectic CP2#5CP2and minimal symplectic 4-manifold that is homeomorphic but ...
  • Modeling the waning and boosting of immunity from infection or vaccination 

    Carlsson, Rose-Marie; Childs, Lauren M.; Feng, Zhilan; Glasser, John W.; Heffernan, Jane M.; Li, Jing; Rost, Gergely (2020-07-21)
    Immunity following natural infection or immunization may wane, increasing susceptibility to infection with time since infection or vaccination. Symptoms, and concomitantly infectiousness, depend on residual immunity. We ...
  • Lagrangian Reduced Order Modeling Using Finite Time Lyapunov Exponents 

    Xie, Xuping; Nolan, Peter J.; Ross , Shane D.; Mou , Changhong; Iliescu, Traian (MDPI, 2020-10-23)
    There are two main strategies for improving the projection-based reduced order model (ROM) accuracy—(i) improving the ROM, that is, adding new terms to the standard ROM; and (ii) improving the ROM basis, that is, ...
