(1,1) Lspace knots
(COMPOSITIO MATHEMATICA, 20180501)We characterize the (1, 1) knots in the threesphere and lens spaces that admit nontrivial Lspace surgeries. As a corollary, 1bridge braids in these manifolds admit non trivial Lspace surgeries. We also recover ... 
A baseline paleoecological study for the Santa Cruz Formation (late–early Miocene) at the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, Argentina
(Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 201006)Coastal exposures of the Santa Cruz Formation (lateearly Miocene, southern Patagonia, Argentina) between the Coyle and Gallegos rivers have been a fertile ground for recovery of Miocene vertebrates for more than 100 years. ... 
A microscopic model of the StokesEinstein relation in arbitrary dimension.
(The Journal of chemical physics, 201806)The StokesEinstein relation (SER) is one of the most robust and widely employed results from the theory of liquids. Yet sizable deviations can be observed for selfsolvation, which cannot be explained by the standard ... 
A slicing obstruction from the $\frac {10}{8}$ theorem
(Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 20160829)© 2016 American Mathematical Society. From Furuta’s 10/8 theorem, we derive a smooth slicing obstruction for knots in S3 using a spin 4manifold whose boundary is 0surgery on a knot. We show that this obstruction is able ... 
An Empirical Comparison of Multiple Imputation Methods for Categorical Data
(The American Statistician, 20170403)© 2017 American Statistical Association. Multiple imputation is a common approach for dealing with missing values in statistical databases. The imputer fills in missing values with draws from predictive models estimated ... 
Ballistic Graphene Josephson Junctions from the Short to the Long Junction Regimes.
(Physical review letters, 20161202)We investigate the critical current I_{C} of ballistic Josephson junctions made of encapsulated grapheneboronnitride heterostructures. We observe a crossover from the short to the long junction regimes as the length of ... 
Berge–Gabai knots and L–space satellite operations
(Algebraic & Geometric Topology, 20150115)© 2014 Mathematical Sciences Publishers. All rights reserved. Let P(K) be a satellite knot where the pattern P is a Berge–Gabai knot (ie a knot in the solid torus with a nontrivial solid torus Dehn surgery) and the companion ... 
Bounding the outcome of a twophoton interference measurement using weak coherent states
(OPTICS LETTERS, 20180815) 
Climate and health impacts of US emissions reductions consistent with 2 °C
(Nature Climate Change, 201605)© 2016 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved. An emissions trajectory for the US consistent with 2 °C warming would require marked societal changes, making it crucial to understand the associated benefits. Previous ... 
Counterpoint to Obura
(ICES Journal of Marine Science, 20180501) 
Data clustering based on Langevin annealing with a selfconsistent potential
(Quarterly of Applied Mathematics, 20181011) 
ElectronIon Collider: The next QCD frontier: Understanding the glue that binds us all
(European Physical Journal A, 20160901)© 2016, The Author(s). This White Paper presents the science case of an ElectronIon Collider (EIC), focused on the structure and interactions of gluondominated matter, with the intent to articulate it to the broader nuclear ... 
Generalized optical memory effect
(Optica, 20170820)© 2017 Optical Society of America. The optical memory effect is a wellknown type of tilt/tilt wave correlation that is observed in coherent fields, allowing control over scattered light through thin and diffusive materials. ... 
Inorganic carbon speciation and fluxes in the Congo River
(Geophysical Research Letters, 20130216)Seasonal variations in inorganic carbon chemistry and associated fluxes from the Congo River were investigated at BrazzavilleKinshasa. Small seasonal variation in dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) was found in contrast with ... 
Investigation of Supercurrent in the Quantum Hall Regime in Graphene Josephson Junctions
(Journal of Low Temperature Physics, 20180601)© 2018, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. In this study, we examine multiple encapsulated graphene Josephson junctions to determine which mechanisms may be responsible for the supercurrent observed ... 
Knot contact homology
(Geometry & Topology, 20130430)The conormal lift of a link K in ℝ3is a Legendrian submanifold ∧Kin the unit cotangent bundle U*ℝ3of ℝ3with contact structure equal to the kernel of the Liouville form. Knot contact homology, a topological link invariant ... 
Large trees drive forest aboveground biomass variation in moist lowland forests across the tropics
(Global Ecology and Biogeography, 201312)Aim: Large trees (d.b.h.≥70cm) store large amounts of biomass. Several studies suggest that large trees may be vulnerable to changing climate, potentially leading to declining forest biomass storage. Here we determine the ... 
Linking MPA effectiveness to the future of local rural fishing societies
(ICES Journal of Marine Science, 20180501) 
Obstructions to Lagrangian concordance
(Algebraic & Geometric Topology, 20160426)We investigate the question of the existence of a Lagrangian concordance between two Legendrian knots in $\mathbb{R}^3$. In particular, we give obstructions to a concordance from an arbitrary knot to the standard ...
