The RNAse III endonuclease DICER is a key regulator of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis and is frequently decreased in a variety of malignancies. We characterized the role of DICER in glioblastoma (GB), specifically demonstrating its effects on the...

The denaturation transition of circular DNA is studied within a Poland-Scheraga-type approach, generalized to account for the fact that the total linking number (LK), which measures the number of windings of one strand around the other, is...
This work considers eigenvalue problems that are nonlinear in the eigenvalue parameter. Given such a nonlinear eigenvalue problem T, we are concerned with finding the minimal backward error such that T has a set of prescribed eigenvalues with...

We examine the extent to which wealth, democracy, and/or relative military capabilities contribute to victory in interstate war. Examining contingency tables, we find that states with greater military capabilities are more likely to win their wars...

Background: Biochemical oscillators perform crucial functions in cells, e.g., they set up circadian clocks. The dynamical behavior of oscillators is best described and analyzed in terms of the scalar quantity, phase. A rigorous and useful...

Private schools free households from a strict link between residential location decisions and the tax-school quality bundles they consume. In order to study the impact of private schools on educational outcomes, we develop a general equilibrium...
The necessary and sufficient conditions for the exactness of the semiclassical approximation for the solution of the Schrodinger and Klein-Gordon equations are obtained, It is shown that the existence of an exact semiclassical solution of the...
For an arbitrary possibly non-Hermitian matrix Hamiltonian H that might involve exceptional points, we construct an appropriate parameter space m and line bundle L-n over m such that the adiabatic geometric phases associated with the eigenstates of...
The dynamics of triatomic clusters is investigated employing two-body Lennard-Jones and three-body Axilrod-Teller potential functions. Lyapunov exponents are calculated for the total energy range of -2.70 epsilon
The denaturation transition which takes place in circular DNA is analyzed by extending the Poland-Scheraga (PS) model to include the winding degrees of freedom. We consider the case of a homopolymer whereby the winding number of the double-stranded...
The mixed-mode philosophy of combining classical and quantum degrees of freedom under a single umbrella is employed to study chaotic behavior under quantization. The quantal wave packet is expanded in terms of a set of basis functions. The...
The paper proposes a numerical technique within the Lagrangian description for propagating the quantum fluid dynamical (QFD) equations in terms of the Madelung field variables R and S, which are connected to the wave function via the transformation...

The single machine total weighted tardiness problem with sequence dependent setup times is a challenging and heavily studied problem. This problem is NP-hard, so several heuristics have been proposed in the literature so far. One of them is the...
