(2017-09-21) - Journal articleWe consider certain properties of the semigroup S defined by the Presentation S = 〈a,b : a2ⁿ⁻¹ = 1,b2 = a2ⁿ⁻², ba = ab2ⁿ⁻¹-1〉, (n ≥ 3).
On the star-height of subword counting languages and their relationship to Rees zero-matrix semigroups (2016-11-15) - Journal articleGiven a word w over a finite alphabet, we consider, in three special cases, the generalised star-height of the languages in which w occurs as a contiguous subword (factor) an exact number of times and of the languages in ...
(2017-09-08) - Journal articleDistance sampling is a popular statistical method to estimate the density of wild animal populations. Conventional distance sampling represents animals as fixed points in space that are detected with an unknown probability ...
(2017-09-04) - Journal articleOpen population capture-recapture models are widely used to estimate population demographics and abundance over time. Bayesian methods exist to incorporate open population modelling with spatial capture-recapture, allowing ...
Particle acceleration with anomalous pitch angle scattering in 2D magnteohydrodynamic reconnection simulations (2017-09) - Journal articleThe conversion of magnetic energy into other forms (such as plasma heating, bulk plasma flows, and non-thermal particles) during solar flares is one of the outstanding open problems in solar physics. It is generally accepted ...
