A Finite Mixture Approach for Identification of Geographic Regions with Distinctive Ecological Stressor-Response Relationships
(Virginia Tech, 2006)
We study a model-based clustering procedure that aims to identify geographic regions with distinctive relationships among ecological and environmental variables. We use a finite mixture model with a distinct linear regression ...

Bifurcation analysis of a model of the budding yeast cell cycle
(Amer Inst Physics, 2004-09-01)
We study the bifurcations of a set of nine nonlinear ordinary differential equations that describe regulation of the cyclin-dependent kinase that triggers DNA synthesis and mitosis in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces ...
Unusual water flux in the extracellular polysaccharide of the cyanobacterium Nostoc commune
(Amer Soc Microbiology, 2003-09-01)
The speed of water uptake by desiccated <i>Nostoc commune</i> was found to depend upon the duration of desiccation. The rehydration of desiccated colonies led to marked, time-dependent changes in structure and ultrastructure ...
Evidence for muon neutrino oscillation in an accelerator-based experiment
(American Physical Soc, 2005-03-04)
We present results for ν<sub>μ</sub> oscillation in the KEK to Kamioka (K2K) long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment. K2K uses an accelerator-produced ν<sub>μ</sub> beam with a mean energy of 1.3 GeV directed at the ...
