    • Gibbs Energy Dynamic Yield Method (GEDYM): Predicting microbial growth yields under energy-limiting conditions 

      Smeaton, Christina M.; Van Cappellen, Philippe (Elsevier, 2018-11-15)
      Biomass-explicit biogeochemical models assign microbial growth yields (Y) using values measured in the laboratory or predicted using thermodynamics-based methods. However, Y values are rarely measured under the low energy ...
    • Gini-type measures of risk and variability: Gini shortfall, capital allocations, and heavy-tailed risks 

      Furman, Edward; Wang, Ruodo; Zitikis, Ricardas (Elsevier, 2017-10-01)
      We introduce and explore Gini-type measures of risk and variability, and develop the corresponding economic capital allocation rules. The new measures are coherent, additive for co-monotonic risks, convenient computationally, ...
    • Glassy States in Asymmetric Mixtures of Soft and Hard Colloids 

      Truzzolillo, Domenico; Marzi, Daniela; Marakis, John; Capone, Barbara; Camargo, Manuel; Munam, Abdul; Moingeon, Firmin; Gauthier, Mario; Likos, Christos N.; Vlassopoulos, Dimitris (APS Physics, 2013-11-14)
      By employing rheological experiments, mode coupling theory, and computer simulations based on realistic coarse-grained models, we investigate the effects of small, hard colloids on the glassy states formed by large, soft ...
    • Glazing System U-Value Measurement Using a Guarded Heater Plate Apparatus 

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1988)
      Precise heat transfer measurements have been carried out during the last 20 years using a guarded heater plate apparatus. This apparatus has been adapted and used over the last several years to perform U-value measurements ...
    • Global Health from the Margins: contemplations from students engaging in interdisciplinary research 

      Johnston, Lesley; Willmott, Lacey (, 2018-04)
      Climate change, poverty, environmental degradation, and deepening inequality – the future before us offers no end of wicked problems and human health is deeply implicated in them all. This is not the first time we have ...
    • Global Land Use Implications of Dietary Trends 

      Rizvi, Sarah; Pagnutti, Chris; Fraser, Evan; Bauch, Chris T.; Anand, Madhur (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 2017-09-28)
      Global food security and agricultural land management represent two urgent and intimately related challenges that humans must face. We quantify the changes in the global agricultural land footprint if the world were to ...
    • Global land use implications of dietary trends 

      Rizvi, Sarah; Pagnutti, Chris; Fraser, Evan; Bauch, Chris T.; Anand, Madhur (PLOS One, 2018-08-08)
      Global food security and agricultural land management represent two urgent and intimately related challenges that humans must face. We quantify the changes in the global agricultural land footprint if the world were to ...
    • Global motion perception is associated with motor function in 2-year-old children 

      Thompson, Benjamin; McKinlay, Christopher J.D.; Chakraborty, Arijit; Anstice, Nicola S.; Jacobs, Robert J.; Paudel, Nabin; Yu, Tzu-Ying; Ansell, Judith M.; Wouldes, Trecia; Harding, Jane E. (Elsevier, 2017-09-29)
      The dorsal visual processing stream that includes V1, motion sensitive area V5 and the posterior parietal lobe, supports visually guided motor function. Two recent studies have reported associations between global motion ...
    • Global Sampled-Data Regulation of a Class of Fully Actuated Invariant Systems on Simply Connected Nilpotent Matrix Lie Groups 

      McCarthy, Philip James; Nielsen, Christopher (IEEE, 2021-02-09)
      We examine a regulator problem for a class of fully actuated continuous-time invariant systems on Lie groups, using a discrete-time controller with constant sampling period. We present a smooth discrete-time control law ...
    • Global Stability of a Class of Difference Equations on Solvable Lie Algebras 

      McCarthy, Philip James; Nielsen, Christopher (Springer, 2020-06-17)
      Motivated by the ubiquitous sampled-data setup in applied control, we examine the stability of a class of difference equations that arises by sampling a right- or left-invariant flow on a solvable matrix Lie group. The map ...
    • Global survey of the omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid in the blood stream of healthy adults 

      Stark, Ken; Van Elswyk, Mary E.; Higgins, M. Roberta; Weatherford, Charli A.; Salem, Norman, Jr. (Elsevier, 2016-07-01)
      Studies reporting blood levels of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), were systematically identified in order to create a global map identifying countries ...
    • Global-connected network with generalized ReLU activation 

      Chen, Zhi; Ho, Pin-Han (Elsevier, 2019-12)
