      Liu, Yu-Ru; Murty, M. Ram (Elsevier, 2006-01)
      We develop a weighted Turán sieve method and applied it to study the number of distinct prime divisors of f (p) where p is a prime and f (x) a polynomial with integer coefficients.
    • Welcome to the web: The online community of GeoCities during the early years of the World Wide Web 

      Milligan, Ian (UCL Press, 2017-03)
      As the World Wide Web entered mainstream North American society in the mid-to late 1990s, GeoCities was there to welcome users with open arms. GeoCities helped to facilitate their first steps into publishing, so they could ...
    • Well-Posedness of Boundary Control Systems 

      Cheng, Ada; Morris, Kirsten (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2003-01-01)
      Continuity of the input/output map for boundary control systems is shown through the system transfer function. Our approach transforms the question of continuity of the input/output map of a boundary control system to ...

    • When does eco-efficiency rebound or backfire? An analytical model 

      Chenavaz, Régis Y.; Dimitrov, Stanko; Figge, Frank (Elsevier, 2021-04-16)
      It is known that an eco-efficiency strategy, which saves resources in the production process, may be offset by a rebound effect; it may even backfire. Less known are the exact conditions under which eco-efficiency rebounds ...
    • When threat matters: Self-regulation, threat salience, and stereotyping 

      Stroessner, Steven J.; Scholer, Abigail A.; Marx, David M.; Weisz, Bradley M. (Elsevier, 2015-07-01)
