Autocryopicker: An unsupervised learning approach for fully automated single particle picking in cryo-em images
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2019)
which is much faster and more accurate than traditional K-means and Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) algorithms for single particle clustering. Our particle picking method, based on image cleaning and shape detection with a modified Circular Hough Transform algorithm...
Mass Loss History of the AGB star, R Cas
We report here on the discovery of an extended far-infrared shell around the AGB star, R Cassiopeia, made by AKARI and Spitzer. The extended, cold circumstellar shell of R Cas spans nearly 3′ and is probably shaped by ...
Investigating short-term and long-term binder performance of high-RAP mixtures containing waste cooking oil
(Periodical Offices of Chang- an University, 2019)
The environmental and economic benefits of recycling asphalt pavements have received much attention in recent years. Because of the increase in the cost of raw materials and energy carriers, the reuse of large portions of ...
Effect of a single AGE modification on the structure and chaperone activity of human alphaB-Crystallin
(American Chemical Society, 2007)
During aging, human lens proteins undergo several post-translational modifications, one of which is glycation. This process leads to the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) which accumulate with time possibly ...
The SAGE-Spec Spitzer Legacy program: The life-cycle of dust and gas in the Large Magellanic Cloud: Point source classification I.
We present the classification of 197 point sources observed with the Infrared Spectrograph in the SAGE-Spec Legacy program on the Spitzer Space Telescope. We introduce a decision-tree method of object classification based ...
We study a simple class of time-dependent rotating Ricci-flat cylindrically symmetric spacetime manifolds whose geodesics admit gravitomagnetic jets. The helical paths of free test particles in these jets up and down ...
Gamma oscillations in the basolateral amygdala: Biophysical mechanisms and computational consequences
(Society for Neuroscience, 2019)
The basolateral nucleus of the amygdala (BL) is thought to support numerous emotional behaviors through specific microcircuits. These are often thought to be comprised of feedforward networks of principal cells (PNs) and ...
Post-Newtonian Reference Frames for Advanced Theory of the Lunar Motion and a New Generation of Lunar Laser Ranging
We construct a set of post-Newtonian reference frames for a comprehensive study of the orbital dynamics and rotational motion of Moon and Earth by means of lunar laser ranging (LLR) with the precision of one millimeter. ...
3-D Dynamics of Interactions between Stellar Winds and the Interstellar Medium as Seen by AKARI and Spitzer
Recent far-infrared mapping of mass-losing stars by the AKARI Infrared Astronomy Satellite and Spitzer Space Telescope have suggested that far-infrared bow shock structures are probably ubiquitous around these masslosing ...
The interface between the stellar wind and interstellar medium around R Cassiopeiae revealed by far-infrared imaging
The circumstellar dust shells of intermediate initial-mass (about 1 to 8 solar masses) evolved stars are generated by copious mass loss during the asymptotic giant branch phase. The density structure of their circumstellar ...
Barbara Allen and the English Ballad in Appalachia: Adaptations and Transformations
The purpose of this study is to examine the eighteenth-century English Child ballads and "Barbara Allen" which survived in the Appalachian region of the United States.
The Origin and Evolution of the Trumpet and Cornet
For several years I have listened to many heated arguments among musicians concerning the difference between the trumpet and a cornet. The purpose of this paper will be to explore the origin and historical development ...
The Origins Billions Star Survey: Galactic Explorer
(The Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2006)
The Origins Billions Star Survey is a mission concept addressing the astrophysics of extrasolar planets, Galactic structure, the Galactic halo and tidal streams, the Local Group and local supercluster of galaxies, dark ...
Mechanized agriculture: machine adoption, farm size, and labor displacement
(University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2015)
Mechanization in such countries as the United States and Canada has dramatically reshaped the agricultural landscape since the time of early settlement. The introduction of new technologies—such as the mechanical tomato ...
Keyboard Sight-Playing Possibilities for Improvement
The purpose of this paper is to examine some experiments related to keyboard sight-playing and related articles by successful teachers in an attempt to establish teaching techniques and procedures which will more ...
Understanding Agricultural Species Metapopulation Biology and Ecology and the Implications for Coexistence in Low Level of Presence Scenarios
The intraspecific movement of novel traits in agriculture involves a metapopulation that includes cropped, volunteer, and feral subpopulations as well as a latent population comprised of any viable seed anywhere within the ...
Papillomavirus DNA not detected in canine lobular orbital adenoma and normal conjunctival tissue
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2019)
. Enucleation and exenteration reduces the likelihood of recurrence, but is a radical therapeutic option for an otherwise visual and comfortable eye. Human papillomavirus causes 4.5 percent of worldwide cancers in people and has been identified in up to 23...
Apparel Import Intermediaries' Secrets to Success: Redefining Success in a Hyper-dynamic Environment
(Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management, 2008)
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to obtain an immediate and deeper understanding of apparel import intermediaries' (AII) secrets to success in the hyper-dynamic US apparel market environment. Design/methodology/approach: ...
Astrodynamical Space Test of Relativity using Optical Devices I (ASTROD I) - A class-M fundamental physics mission proposal for Cosmic Vision 2015-2025
ASTROD I is a planned interplanetary space mission with multiple goals. The primary aims are: to test General Relativity with an improvement in sensitivity of over 3 orders of magnitude, improving our understanding of ...
