Mycobacterial aerosols and respiratory disease
Environmental opportunistic mycobacteria, including Mycobacterium avium, M. terrae, and the new species M. immunogenum, have been implicated in outbreaks of hypersensitivity pneumonitis or respiratory problems in a wide ...
What does the yield curve tell us about exchange rate predictability?
(MIT Press, 2013-03)
Since the term structure of interest rates embodies information about future economic activity, we extract relative Nelson-Siegel (1987) factors from cross-country yield curve differences to proxy expected movements in ...
Structured noncommutative multidimensional linear systems
(Siam Publications, 2005)
We introduce a class of multidimensional linear systems with evolution along a free semigroup. The transfer function for such a system is a formal power series in noncommuting indeterminates. Standard system-theoretic ...
Causal modeling refutes Hockett’s hypothesis that bite configuration affects human sound evolution
(Virginia Tech, 2020-02-21)
Blasi et al. (Research article, 15 March 2019) argue in support of Hockett’s hypothesis – that languages of hunter-gatherers are less likely to develop labiodental sounds than those of agricultural societies due to the ...
Editorial for Special Issue “Nanomineralogy”
Nanoscience and nanotechnology study the properties of materials within the range 0 [...]
Selection and Historical Height Data: Evidence from the 1892 Boas Sample of the Cherokee Nation
Economists have increasingly turned to height data to gain insight into a population’s standard of living. Because height measures are used when other data is unavailable, testing their reliability can be difficult, and ...
Phenoscape: Semantic analysis of organismal traits and genes yields insights in evolutionary biology
The study of how the observable features of organisms, i.e., their phenotypes, result from the complex interplay between genetics, development, and the environment, is central to much research in biology. The varied language ...
Supernova Physics at DUNE
The DUNE/LBNF program aims to address key questions in neutrino physics and astroparticle physics. Realizing DUNE’s potential to reconstruct low-energy particles in the 10–100 MeV energy range will bring significant benefits ...
