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 ...
Antibiotics ameliorate lupus-like symptoms in mice
Gut microbiota and the immune system interact to maintain tissue homeostasis, but whether this interaction is involved in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is unclear. Here we report that oral antibiotics ...
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.
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 ...
On the diagonal subalgebra of an Ext algebra
Let R be a Koszul algebra over a field k and M be a linear R-module. We study a graded subalgebra Delta(M) of the Ext-algebra Ext(R)*(M, M) called the diagonal subalgebra and its properties. Applications to the Hochschild ...
The emergence of fast oscillations in a reduced primitive equation model and its implications for closure theories
The problem of emergence of fast gravity-wave oscillations in rotating, stratified flow is reconsidered. Fast inertia-gravity oscillations have long been considered an impediment to initialization of weather forecasts, and ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
