A cache of iron artifacts from the DGB1 site, northern Cameroon: metallurgical analysis and ethnoarchaeological analogies
(Journal of African Archaeology, 2013) 
A Mean Field Limit for the Vlasov–Poisson System
(Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis, 201709)© 2017, SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg. We present a probabilistic proof of the mean field limit and propagation of chaos Nparticle systems in three dimensions with positive (Coulomb) or negative (Newton) 1/r potentials ... 
A Mini Review of the Zoonotic Threat Potential of Influenza Viruses, Coronaviruses, Adenoviruses, and Enteroviruses.
(Frontiers in public health, 201801)During the last two decades, scientists have grown increasingly aware that viruses are emerging from the humananimal interface. In particular, respiratory infections are problematic; in early 2003, World Health Organization ... 
A Modified Healthy Aging Index and Its Association with Mortality: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999–2002
(The Journals of Gerontology: Series A, 201710) 
A New Method and a New Scaling for Deriving Fermionic MeanField Dynamics
(Mathematical Physics, Analysis and Geometry, 201603)© 2016, The Author(s). We introduce a new method for deriving the timedependent Hartree or HartreeFock equations as an effective meanfield dynamics from the microscopic Schrödinger equation for fermionic manyparticle ... 
A Simple Derivation of Mean Field Limits for Quantum Systems
(Letters in Mathematical Physics, 201108)We shall present a new strategy for handling mean field limits of quantum mechanical systems. The new method is simple and effective. It is simple, because it translates the idea behind the meanfield description of a many ... 
Analysis of Feature Intervisibility and Cumulative Visibility Using GIS, Bayesian and Spatial Statistics: A Study from the Mandara Mountains, Northern Cameroon
(PLoS ONE, 20141110)The locations of <italic>diygeÎ´bay</italic> (DGB) sites in the Mandara Mountains, northern Cameroon are hypothesized to occur as a function of their ability to see and be seen from points on the surrounding landscape. ... 
Association between Blood Lead and Walking Speed in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 1999–2002)
(Environmental Health Perspectives, 20130419) 
Association of retirement age with mortality: a populationbased longitudinal study among older adults in the USA
(Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, 201609) 
Authenticity, Sincerity and Spontaneity: The Mutual Implication of Nature and Religion in China and the West
(Method & Theory in the Study of Religion, 20130101)Fundamental approaches to ethics and morality in both China and the West are bound up not only with conceptions of religion and ultimate truth, but also with conceptions of nature. One dominant theme in the West is to see ... 
Blood Pressure Trajectory, Gait Speed, and Outcomes: The Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study
(The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences, 201612) 
Bogoliubov corrections and trace norm convergence for the Hartree dynamics
We consider the dynamics of a large number N of nonrelativistic bosons in the mean field limit for a class of interaction potentials that includes Coulomb interaction. In order to describe the fluctuations around the mean ... 
Changing cancer survival in China during 200315: a pooled analysis of 17 populationbased cancer registries.
(The Lancet. Global health, 201805)From 2003 to 2005, standardised 5year cancer survival in China was much lower than in developed countries and varied substantially by geographical area. Monitoring populationlevel cancer survival is crucial to the understanding ... 
Chinese residential electricity consumption: Estimation and forecast using microdata
(Resource and Energy Economics, 201711)© 2017 Elsevier B.V. Based on econometric estimation using data from the Chinese Urban Household Survey, we develop a preferred forecast range of 85143 percent growth in residential per capita electricity demand over 20092025. ... 
Derivation of the Bogoliubov Time Evolution for Gases with Finite Speed of Sound
The derivation of meanfield limits for quantum systems at zero temperature has attracted many researchers in the last decades. Recent developments are the consideration of pair correlations in the effective description, ... 
Derivation of the MaxwellSchrödinger Equations from the PauliFierz Hamiltonian
We consider the spinless PauliFierz Hamiltonian which describes a quantum system of nonrelativistic identical particles coupled to the quantized electromagnetic field. We study the time evolution in a meanfield limit ... 
Derivation of the time dependent GrossPitaevskii equation for a class of non purely positive potentials
We present a microscopic derivation of the timedependent GrossPitaevskii equation starting from an interacting Nparticle system of Bosons. We prove convergence of the reduced density matrix corresponding to the exact ...
