We consider a linear elastic rod that comes to impact with a rigid obstacle under the action of a constant body force. The restitution coefficient is defined as the ratio between the rebound velocity and the approaching velocity at the ...

The size of an organism is determined by the number and size of its constituent cells. The insulin/IGF-1 signaling systems have been long recognized to play a critical role in the determination of body size. Now the generation of mice d...

In this paper, we investigate the existence of multiple positive periodic solutions to a class of functional difference equations. We answer the open problems proposed by Y. Raffoul in [Electron. J. Differential Equations 55 (2002) 1–...

Advance directives have been widely endorsed, and empiric work has taken place that can aid clinicians in the appropriate use of validated documents. This report reviews philosophic and methodologic issues and offers practical illustrat...

This paper introduces the concept of a partial geometry of dimension three, extending the concept of an (r, k, t) partial geometry (which may be called of dimension two) due to Bose. An association scheme is defined on this system which...

This research presents the findings of a rank order evaluation of corporate social responsibility attributes by a target public (N = 72) of a contemporary corporate social responsibility campaign. The results indicate that pub...

We present a global characterisation for the normal form of a time-periodically driven differential equation describing the behaviour of a physical system in the neighborrhood of a multiple instability. We modify Nike Lunareclipse+ 3 a...

The development of one-pack additive formulations thatare easier to handle and mix, as well as providing greater safety, is a major trend in the industry. Mark Holmes discusses recent developments with some leading additive manufacturer...

Dilation theorems for Banach space valued stochastic processes and operator valued positive definite kernels are considered. It is shown, e.g., that a Banach space valued stochastic process X can be dilated to another process Y, if and ...

The paper exploits macro-panel data for OECD countries. Close to the technological frontier, the education level, product market rigidities and employment protection legislation would be significantly related to TFP growth, with a subst...
