This article is from Molecular Systems Biology , volume 7 . Abstract The authors analyze the role transcription plays in regulating bacterial metabolic flux. Of 91 transcriptional regulators studied, 2/3 affect absolute fluxes, but only a small number of regulators control the partitioning of flux between different metabolic pathways.

This article is from Malaria Journal , volume 10 . Abstract Background: Malaria is hyper-endemic and a major public health problem in Sierra Leone. To provide malaria treatment closer to the community, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) launched a community-based project where Community Malaria Volunteers (CMVs) tested and treated febrile children and pregnant women for malaria using rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). RDT-negative patients and severely ill patients were referred to health facilities....

We consider the problem of deciding whether a highly incomplete signal lies within a given subspace. This problem, Matched Subspace Detection, is a classical, well-studied problem when the signal is completely observed. High- dimensional testing problems in which it may be prohibitive or impossible to obtain a complete observation motivate this work. The signal is represented as a vector in R^n, but we only observe m < < n of its elements. We show that reliable detection is possible,...

We consider analytic continuations of Fourier transforms and Stieltjes transforms. This enables us to define what we call complex moments for some class of probability measures which do not have moments in the usual sense. There are two ways to generalize moments accordingly to Fourier and Stieltjes transforms; however these two turn out to coincide. As applications, we give short proofs of the convergence of probability measures to Cauchy distributions with respect to tensor, free, Boolean and...

We review some recent developments in the conformal gravity theory that has been advanced as a candidate alternative to standard Einstein gravity. As a quantum theory the conformal theory is both renormalizable and unitary, with unitarity being obtained because the theory is a $PT$ symmetric rather than a Hermitian theory. We show that in the theory there can be no a priori classical curvature, with all curvature having to result from quantization. In the conformal theory gravity requires no...

We can show that unless the spectum contains a halfplane, the BFC property occurs only in siutations where the underlying semigroup extends to a group. In a second part we present a sufficient condition for exact observability in Banach spaces that is designed for infinite-dimensional output spaces and...

In this paper, two upper bounds on the achievable code rate of linear block codes for multiple phased-burst correction (MPBC) are presented. One bound is constrained to a maximum correctable cyclic burst length within every subblock, or equivalently a constraint on the minimum error free length or gap within every phased-burst. This bound, when reduced to the special case of a bound for single burst correction (SBC), is shown to be the Abramson bound when the cyclic burst length is less than...

The fluctuations are Euler-Gamma distributed, leading to a canonical state maximizing the Renyi and Tsallis entropy formulas. We test the random lattice spacing method numerically on the Polyakov Loop expectation value. The critical coupling and presumably also the critical deconfinement temperature shifts about 30 per cent to higher values with a...

However there exist non trivial geodesically complete CAT(0) spaces with compact Tits boundary that are far from being flat. We show that if the isometry group of such a space acts cocompactly, then the space is "as flat as possible", i.e. the boundary minimal subspace must be flat.

We also compute the centraliser of such maps. It allows us to describe the centraliser of the birational maps of the complex projective plane which preserve a rational fibration (the action on the basis of the fibration being not necessarily trivial); this question is related...

A third degree of freedom appears in the model, and it naturally generates the MiniBooNE low-energy anomalies. More involved models in this class can also accommodate the LSND anomaly and neutrino-antineutrino...

It is known from some time that to explain some apparently {\it exotic events} observed in cosmic ray experiments, a deeply penetrating component in cosmic rays is needed, which, in turn, leads frequently to the nonexponential distributions of some observables. We argue that such unexpected behavior of some cosmic rays data can be most naturally explained by attributing them to the possible fluctuations of cross sections.

The main new ingredient is an explicit computation of Kostant's solution to the Toda lattice in terms of equivariant Schubert classes.

The adhesion of graphene on slightly lattice-mismatched surfaces, for instance of hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) or Ir(111), gives rise to a complex landscape of sublattice symmetry-breaking potentials for the Dirac fermions. Whereas a gap at the Dirac point opens for perfectly lattice-matched graphene on hBN, we show that the small lattice incommensurability prevents the opening of this gap and rather leads to a renormalized Dirac dispersion with a trigonal warping. This warping breaks the...

Studies by video microscopy on fluctuating colloids measure the real-space cross-correlations in particle motion. This set of correlations is then treated as a matrix, in order to study the spectrum and mode structure. We show that in general the modes are modified by the truncation of the full real-space correlations. We perform a theoretical analysis of the truncation, find the boundary conditions imposed by the truncation, and propose practical windowing strategies to eliminate artefacts. We...

Let Y be a locally convex Hausdorff space, K \subset E a cone and \leq_K the partial order defined by K. Let (X, p) be a TV S- cone metric space, {\phi} : K \rightarrow K a vectorial comparison function and f : X \rightarrow X such that p(f(x), f(y)) \leq_K {\phi}(p(x, y)), for all x, y \in X. We shall show that there exists a scalar comparison function {\psi} : R+ \rightarrow R+ and a metric d_p(in usual sense) on X such that d_p(f(x), f(y)) \leq {\psi}(d_p(x, y)), for all x, y \in X. Our...

The {\bf H}$_2${\bf O} Southern Galactic {\bf P}lane {\bf S}urvey (HOPS) has observed 100 square degrees of the Galactic plane, using the Mopra radio telescope to search for emission from multiple spectral lines in the 12\,mm band (19.5\,--\,27.5\,GHz). Perhaps the most important of these spectral lines is the 22.2\,GHz water maser transition. We describe the methods used to identify water maser candidates and subsequent confirmation of the sources. Our methods involve a simple determination of...

Powellsnakes is a Bayesian algorithm for detecting compact objects embedded in a diffuse background, and was selected and successfully employed by the Planck consortium in the production of its first public deliverable: the Early Release Compact Source Catalogue (ERCSC). We present the critical foundations and main directions of further development of PwS, which extend it in terms of formal correctness and the optimal use of all the available information in a consistent unified framework, where...
