Very light magnetized jets on large scales - I. Evolution and magnetic fields
Magnetic fields, which are undoubtedly present in extragalactic jets and responsible for the observed synchrotron radiation, can affect the morphology and dynamics of the jets and their interaction with the ambient cluster ...
The role of Type Ia Supernovae in chemical evolution 1 : Lifetime of Type Ia Supernovae and metallicity effect
We construct a new model of Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia), based on the single degenerate scenario, taking account of the metallicity dependences of white dwarf (WD) wind and the mass-stripping effect on the binary companion ...
Transplantation of organic surface horizons of boreal soils into warmer regions alters microbiology but not the temperature sensitivity of decomposition
Changes in soil carbon, the largest terrestrial carbon pool, are critical for the global carbon cycle, atmospheric CO2 levels and climate. Climate warming is predicted to be most pronounced in the northern regions and ...
Leaf litter decomposition-Estimates of global variability based on Yasso07 model
Litter decomposition is an important process in the global carbon cycle. It accounts for most of the heterotrophic soil respiration and results in formation of more stable soil organic carbon (SOC) which is the largest ...
Aryldiketo acids have antibacterial activity against MDR Staphylococcus aureus strains : Structural insights based on similarity and molecular interaction fields
(Chemical Equation Presented) Similar structure=similar activity? The effect of substituents on the antibacterial activity of aryldiketo acids has been rationalised by molecular interaction fields and similarity studies ...
The Third Wittgenstein Conference
Pugilists and Greasepaint : Theatrical Encounters with a Bare-knuckle Fighter and Pantomime Clown
One of the advantages of the key-wording of entries in the new British Library Manuscript Catalogue is that it facilitates the identification of plays dealing with particular issues or events. It thus allows us to build ...
A selective-abstraction modeling approach for simplifying computer network studies
Modeling and simulation technique is an essential skill on the pathway of learning and researching computer networks. However, the complexity and scale of the network nowadays often challenges the modeling techniques, as ...
Pollination biology of fruit-bearing hedgerow plants and the role of flower-visiting insects in fruit-set
In the UK, the flowers of fruit-bearing hedgerow plants provide a succession of pollen and nectar for flower-visiting insects for much of the year. The fruits of hedgerow plants are a source of winter food for frugivorous ...
