Modeling the Mechanisms by Which HIV Associated Immunosuppression Influences HPV Persistence at the Oral Mucosa
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients are at an increased risk of co-infection with human papilloma virus (HPV), and subsequent malignancies such as oral cancer. To determine the role of HIV-associated immune ...
Stability of shear banded flow for a viscoelastic constitutive model with thixotropic yield stress behavior
oral presentation. Abstract published online.
Multi-scale immunoepidemiological modeling of within-host and between-host HIV dynamics: systematic review of mathematical models
Objective The objective of this study is to conduct a systematic review of multi-scale HIV immunoepidemiological models to improve our understanding of the synergistic impact between the HIV viral-immune dynamics at the ...
Outlier Detection for Sensor Systems (ODSS): A MATLAB Macro for Evaluating Microphone Sensor Data Quality
Microphone sensor systems provide information that may be used for a variety of applications. Such systems generate large amounts of data. One concern is with microphone failure and unusual values that may be generated as ...
A structural equation model looking at student’s participatory behavior and their success in Calculus I
Abstract Background Government projections in the USA indicate that the country will need a million more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduates ...
Understanding the complex patterns observed during hepatitis B Virus therapy
Data from human clinical trials have shown that the hepatitis B virus (HBV) follows complex profiles, such as bi-phasic, tri-phasic, stepwise decay and rebound. We utilized a deterministic model of HBV kinetics following ...
Simulating Within-Vector Generation of Malaria Parasite Diversity
Plasmodium falciparum, the most virulent human malaria parasite, undergoes asexual reproduction within the human host, but reproduces sexually within its vector host, the Anopheles mosquito. Consequently, the mosquito stage ...
Factors contributing to students and instructors experiencing a lack of time in college calculus
Background: Calculus is a foundational course for STEM-intending students yet has been shown to dissuade students from pursuing STEM degrees. In this report, we examine factors related to students and instructors reporting ...
A Degree Theory for Compact Perturbations of Monotone Type Operators and Application to Nonlinear Parabolic Problem
Let 𝑋 be a real locally uniformly convex reflexive Banach space with locally uniformly convex dual space 𝑋∗. Let 𝑇 : 𝑋 ⊇ 𝐷(𝑇) → 2𝑋∗ be maximal monotone, 𝑆:𝑋→2𝑋∗ be bounded and of type (𝑆₊), and 𝐶 : 𝐷(𝐶) → 𝑋∗ ...
