      A best proximity pair for a set-valued map F : A -○ B with respect to a set-valued map G : A -○ A is defined, and a new existence theorem of best proximity pairs for continuous set-valued maps is proved in nonexpansive ...
    • Bias correction of 10m wind forecasts near a coastal estuary in East Central Florida 

      Holman, Bryan P.; Lazarus, Steven M.; Splitt, Michael E.; Colvin, Jeffrey A.; Weaver, Robert J.; Taeb, Peyman; Saberi, Atousa (2015-01-11)
      The lagoon is long (250 km), skinny (2 - 8 km wide), and shallow (1 - 3 m in depth). Fetch is limited in most wind directions, save from the NNW (340°) and the SSE (160°). Flow in the lagoon is primarily wind-driven, ...

    • Birkhoff-Kellogg theorems on invariant directions for multimaps 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O'Regan, Donal (2001-12-11)
      We establish Birkhoff-Kellogg type theorems on invariant directions for a general class of maps. Our results, in particular, apply to Kakutani, acyclic, O'Neill, approximable, admissible, and script U signCK maps.
    • Bit-allocation considering mean absolute error for image compression 

      Goswami, Hemen; Kozatis, Samuel Peter (2000-06-29)
      In lossy image compression schemes, often some distortion measure is minimized to arrive at a desired target bit rate. The distortion measure that has been most studied is the mean-squared-error (MSE). However, perceptual ...
    • Blood vessel segmentation in magnetic resonance angiography imagery 

      Kozaitis, Samuel P.; Chandramohan, Raghu (2011-06-03)
      Small blood vessels may be difficult to detect in magnetic resonance angiography due to the lack of blood flow caused by disease or injury. Our method, which uses a block-matching denoising approach to segment blood vessels, ...

      Arthaut, Louis David; Ahmad, Margaret; Jourdan, Nathalie; Mteyrek, Ali; Procopio, Maria; El-Esawi, Mohamed A.; D'Harlingue, Alain; Bouchet, Pierre Etienne; Witczak, Jacques; Martino, Carlos F. (2017-03)
      Cryptochromes are evolutionarily conserved blue-light absorbing flavoproteins which participate in many important cellular processes including in entrainment of the circadian clock in plants, Drosophila and humans. Drosophila ...

    • Blue-light induced biosynthesis of ROS contributes to the signaling mechanism of Arabidopsis cryptochrome 

      El-Esawi, Mohamed A.; Arthaut, Louis David; Jourdan, Nathalie; D'Harlingue, Alain; Link, Justin J.; Ahmad, Margaret; Martino, Carlos F. (2017-12-01)
      Cryptochromes are evolutionarily conserved blue light receptors with many roles throughout plant growth and development. They undergo conformational changes in response to light enabling interaction with multiple downstream ...
    • Body size shifts in Philippine reef fishes: Interfamilial variation in responses to protection 

      Fidler, Robert Y.; Maypa, Aileen P.; Apistar, Dean; White, Alan T.; Turingan, Ralph G. (2014-03-31)
      As a consequence of intense fishing pressure, fished populations experience reduced population sizes and shifts in body size toward the predominance of smaller and early maturing individuals. Small, early-maturing fish ...
    • Boundary value problems on the half line in the theory of colloids 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O’Regan, Donal (2002-04)
      We present existence results for some boundary value problems defined on infinite intervals. In particular our discussion includes a problem which arises in the theory of colloids.
    • BPM 24754: A new southern ZZ Ceti star 

      Giovannini, Odilon; Kepler, Souza Oliveira; Kanaan, Antonio; Costa, Andrea F Murillo; Koester, Detlev (1998-01)
      We report the discovery of a new long-period ZZ Ceti star through the analysis of photometric time series gathere on 7 nights between 1995 and 1996. The light curve displays a periodic variation with a period of ∼ 18 min ...
    • Breaks in thin and thick disks of edge-on galaxies imaged in the Spitzer Survey of Stellar Structure in Galaxies (S4G) 

      Mizusawa, Trisha; Comeron, Sebastien; Elmegreen, Bruce G.; Salo, Heikki; Athanassoula, E.; Bosma, Albert; Knapen, Johan H.; Gadotti, Demitri A.; Sheth, Kartik; Laurikainen, Eija (2012-11-10)
      Breaks in the radial luminosity profiles of galaxies have until now been mostly studied averaged over disks. Here, we study separately breaks in thin and thick disks in 70 edge-on galaxies using imaging from the Spitzer ...
    • Broad Lyα emission from three nearby BL Lacertae objects 

      Stocke, John T.; Danforth, Charles W.; Perlman, Eric S. (2011-04-25)
      We present far-UV HST/COS spectra of four nearby BLLac objects. BLLac spectra are dominated by a smooth, power-law continuum which arises in a relativistic jet. However, the spectra are not necessarily featureless; weak, ...
