      Atkins, E. Taylor, 1967-- (Memoria e Ricerca: Rivista di storia contemporanea, 2018-05)
      In my 2001 book Blue Nippon: "Authenticating Jazz in Japan", I argued that despite an attempted «total jazz ban», the music survived as «salon/light music» or «hidden jazz», and that musicians from the interwar jazz age ...
    • Fugitive women: Slavery and social change in early modern Southeast Asia 

      Jones, Eric A. (History Department, National University of Singapore: Cambridge University Press, 2007-06)
      Female slaves in VOC-controlled Southeast Asia did not fare well under a legal code which erected a firm partition between free and slave status. This codification imposed a rigid dichotomy for what had been fluid, abstract ...
    • Genomic Arrangement of Regulons in Bacterial Genomes 

      Yin, Yanbin; Zhang, Han; Xu, Ying (Public Library of Science, 2012)
      Regulons, as groups of transcriptionally co-regulated operons, are the basic units of cellular response systems in bacterial cells. While the concept has been long and widely used in bacterial studies since it was first ...
    • Geometry and kinematics of the Nuncios detachment fold complex: implications for lithotectonics in northeastern Mexico 

      Fischer, Mark P.; Higuera-Diaz, I.C.; Wilkerson, M.S. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-08)
      Using recent geologic mapping combined with digital elevation data, aerial photo interpretation, and cross section balancing, we describe the threedimensional (3-D) geometry and kinematics of the Nuncios Fold Complex ...
    • Going Off to the War in Hungary: French Nobles and Crusading Culture in the Sixteenth Century 

      Sandberg, Brian (Hungarian Historical Review, 2015)
      Crusading culture played a significant role in the conceptions and practices of religious warfare in the Early Modern Period, as French authors and militant nobles redeployed Hungary as a crucial theater of crusading war. ...
    • A graph-theoretic method for detecting potential Turing bifurcations 

      Mincheva, Maya; Roussel, Marc R. (American Institute of Physics, 2006-11-22)
      The conditions for diffusion-driven (Turing) instabilities in systems with two reactive species are well known. General methods for detecting potential Turing bifurcations in larger reaction schemes are, on the other hand, ...
    • Harmonic analysis of causal operators and their spectral properties 

      Krishtal, Ilya A.; Baskakov, A.G. (Institute of Physics, 2005)
