In R2 the integral of a regularly varying (RV) function f is regularly varying only if f is monotone. Generalization to R2 of the one-dimensional result on regular variation of the derivative of an RV-function however is straightforward...

Vapor pressure and miscibility isotope effects in hydrogen bonded systems are reviewed. It is shown that the changes caused by H/D substitution reflect the molecular structure. Condensed phase isotope effects are therefore suggested to ...

isolates of the nuclear-polyhedrosis virus of the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni, failed to produce detectable disease or mortality when fed to Pseudoplusia includens, Rachiplusia ou, and Anagrapha bilola at high-dosage levels. If cros...

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...

We examine the asymptotic stability of the zero solution of the first-order linear equation x′(t) = Ax(t) + ∝0tB(t − s) x(s) ds, where B(t) is integrable and does not change sign on [0, ∞). The results are applied to an examinat...

The induced effective action in a topological bag that models QCD at low energy is discussed in terms of Floquet indices. In the adiabatic limit, the Floquet indices reduce, modulo dynamical factors, to Berry phases. It is shown that th...

A local realistic model is proposed that agrees approximately with quantum mechanics in the predictions about experiments testing Bell's inequalities by measuring polarization correlations of photon pairs emitted in atomic cascades. No ...

The evidence for the prophylactic action of lithium in recurrent manic-depressive psychosis is reviewed in the light of criticisms put forward lately. A detailed evaluation of these criticisms shows that they are either irrelevant or in...

Using the Mandelstam-Leibbrandt (ML) prescription for the vector propagator in light-cone axial (LCA) gauge, we show how the infrared singularity (IRS) corresponding to real gluon emission in the Lipatov-Fadin-Kuraev (LFK) equation is c...

Loss of radioactivity to the aqueous phase of conventional extraction procedures has been observed in studies of glyceride synthesis with labeled fatty acids. A method is presented which does not involve washing procedures and by which ...
