Jet transport and photon bremsstrahlung via longitudinal and transverse scattering
We study the effect of multiple scatterings on the propagation of hardpartons and the production of jet-bremsstrahlung photons inside a dense mediumin the framework of deep-inelastic scattering off a large nucleus. We includethe momentum exchanges in both longitudinal and transverse directions betweenthe hard partons and the constituents of the medium. Keeping up to the secondorder in a momentu...


Chiral phase transition in an extended linear sigma model: initial results
We investigate the scalar meson mass dependence on the chiral phasetransition in the framework of an SU, (axial)vector meson extended linearsigma model with additional constituent quarks and Polyakov loops. We determinethe parameters of the Lagrangian at zero temperature in a hybrid approach,where we treat the mesons at tree-level, while the constituent quarks at 1-looplevel. We assume two nonz...
Impact of initial granularity on the collective flow in Pb-Pb collisions at $sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV
The Parton-Hadron-String-Dynamics (PHSD) transport model is used to study theinfluence of initial state granularity of the interacting system on flowobservables in Pb-Pb collisions at $sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV for differentcentralities. While the flow coefficients $v_2$, $v_3$, $v_4$ and $v_5$ arereasonably described in comparison to the data from the ALICE Collaboration fordifferent centraliti...


Nuclear Dynamics with the Sky3D code
A description is presented of how to use the Sky3D time-dependentHartree-Fock code to calculate giant monopole resonances. This requiresmodification to the code, and a step-by-step guide of how to make the necessarymodification is given. An example of how to analyse the output of the code toobtain quantities of physics interest is included. Together, the modificationsand the post-processing are...
Phase Space Factors for Double Beta Decay: an up-date
We give a complete, up-date list of the phase space factors (PSF) forbeta-beta-, beta+beta+, EC beta+ and ECEC double beta decay (DBD) modes, in allnuclei of interest and possible transitions to final states. In calculation,the Coulomb distortion of the electron wave functions is treated by solvingnumerically the Dirac equation with inclusion of the finite nuclear size andelectron screening eff...


Higher-twist contributions to the transverse momentum broadening in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering off large nuclei
Multiple scattering leads to transverse momentum broadening of the struckquark in semi-inclusive deeply inelastic scatterings (SIDIS). Nuclearbroadening of the transverse momentum squared at the leading twist isdetermined by the twist-four collinear quark-gluon correlation function of thetarget nucleus that is in turn related to the jet transport parameter insidethe nuclear medium. The twist-si...
Correlation between elliptic flow and shear viscosity in intermediate-energy heavy-ion collisions
The correlation between the elliptic flow $v_2$ scaled by the impactparameter $b$ and the shear viscosity $eta$ as well as the specific viscosity$eta/s$, defined as the ratio of the shear viscosity to the entropy density$s$, is investigated for the first time in intermediate-energy heavy-ioncollisions based on an isospin-dependent quantum molecular dynamic model. Theelliptic flow is calculated ...

Obeah-Illness Verses Psychiatric Entities among Jamaican Immigrants: Cultural and Clinical Perspectives for Psychiatric Mental Health Professionals
In order to provide culturally authentic healthcare, psychiatric-mental health nurses and other professionals must familiarize themselves with the culture-specific syndromes, idioms of distress, beliefs and practices that may present among the diverse patient groups with whom they work. Psychiatric conditions relating to the Jamaican belief in “Obeah” are specific, culturally-interpreted ph...
Economic Crisis, (Creative) Destruction, and the Current Urban Condition
This paper investigates the contemporary economic crisis, and explores crisis theories developed by Marx and Marxists alongside discourses surrounding human geography and the urban condition. Two positions currently dominate Marxist crisis theory: realization/overproduction and Law of the Tendential Fall in the Rate of Profit. Within human geography, however, scholars rarely discuss crisis theo...

Self-assembled InAs/InP quantum dots and quantum dashes: Material structures and devices
The advances in lasers, electronic and photonic integrated circuits (EPIC), optical interconnects as well as the modulation techniques allow the present day society to embrace the convenience of broadband, high speed internet and mobile network connectivity. However, the steep increase in energy demand and bandwidth requirement calls for further innovation in ultra-compact EPIC technologies. In...
Exploring the isopycnal mixing and helium-heat paradoxes in a suite of Earth System Models
This paper uses a suite of Earth System models which simulate the distribution of He isotopes and radiocarbon to examine two paradoxes in Earth science. The helium-heat paradox refers to the fact that helium emissions to the deep ocean are far lower than would be expected given the rate of geothermal heating, since both are thought to be the result of radioactive decay in the earth's interior. ...

Water level oscillations in Monterey Bay and Harbor
Seiches are normal modes of water bodies responding to geophysical forcings with potential to significantly impact ecology and maritime operations. Analysis of high-frequency (1 Hz) water level data in Monterey California identifies Harbor modes between 10 and 120 s that are attributed with specific geographic features. It found that modal amplitude modulation arises from cross-modal interactio...
Japanese Government and Utilitarian Behavior
When optimal policies for governments are studied in economics, social welfare functions are often used, but the functions are typically unobservable. This paper estimates the social welfare function of Japan’s central government from FY 1955 to 2010. We assume that the central government determines its subsidies to the local governments of prefectures to maximize a social welfare function, w...
Histomorphometrical and fibroarchitecture studies of renal medulla of Aseel breeds of chicken
Kidneys collected from 28 adult Aseel of 10–13 months of age were collected from the identical sites and fixed in 10% buffered formalin and Bouin's fluid for 24–48 hours. The fixed tissue samples were processed in acetone-benzene sequence or alcohol-xylene sequence, were processed by routine paraffine embedding technique. Sections were stained by Haematoxylin and Eosin, Verhoeff's method an...
Gross morphometry of pectoral girdle of domestic geese (Anser anser domesticus)
Pectoral girdle of adult domestic geese (Anser anser domesticus) of Kashmir was studied. The girdle comprised of three bones viz. scapula, coracoid and clavicle. The scapula was sword shaped with proximal extremity and a blade. The length and maximum width of scapula were 10.50 cm and 1.30 cm respectively. The clavicle was in the form of thick curved plate to join the bone of opposite side form...
