Numerical Modeling of Supercritical ‘Out-Salting’ in the “Atlantis II Deep” (Red Sea) Hydrothermal System
(Bentham Open, 2007)
Supercritical water behaves close to that of a non-polar fluid and its ability to dissolve salt ions is very low. In rifting locations world-wide, where hot vents occur, it has been shown that seawater attains supercritical ...
A Continuous Max-Flow Approach to Minimal Partitions with Label Cost Prior
(The authors, 2011)
This paper investigates a convex relaxation approach for minimum description length (MDL) based image partitioning or labeling, which proposes an energy functional regularized by the spatial smoothness prior joint with ...
Histological type and grade of breast cancer tumors by parity, age at birth, and time since birth: a register-based study in Norway
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-21)
Background Some studies have indicated that reproductive factors affect the risk of histological types of breast cancer differently. The long-term protective effect of a childbirth is preceded by a short-term adverse ...
Genotyping errors in a calibrated DNA register: implications for identification of individuals
(BioMed Central, 2011-04-20)
Background: The use of DNA methods for the identification and management of natural resources is gaining importance. In the future, it is likely that DNA registers will play an increasing role in this development. Microsatellite ...
Generating function and volume preserving mappings
(The American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2014-03)
In this paper, we study generating forms and generating functions for volume preserving mappings in Rn. We derive some parametric classes of volume preserving numerical schemes for divergence free vector fields. In passing, ...
Operator splitting methods for systems of convection-diffusion equations: nonlinear error mechanisms and correction strategies
Many numerical methods for systems of convection-diffusion equations are based upon an operator splitting formulation, where convective and diffusive forces are accounted for in separate substeps. We describe the nonlinear ...
Numerical modelling of organic waste dispersion from fjord located fish farms
In this study, a three-dimensional particle tracking model coupled to a terrain following ocean model is used to investigate the dispersion and the deposition of fish farm particulate matter (uneaten food and fish ...
Numerical Simulation Studies of the Long-term Evolution of a CO2 Plume in a Saline Aquifer with a Sloping Caprock
We have used the TOUGH2-MP/ECO2N code to perform numerical simulation studies of the long-term behavior of CO2 stored in an aquifer with a sloping caprock. This problem is of great practical interest, and is very challenging ...
Early prediction of response to radiotherapy and androgen-deprivation therapy in prostate cancer by repeated functional MRI: a preclinical study
(BioMed Central, 2011-06-08)
Background: In modern cancer medicine, morphological magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is routinely used in diagnostics, treatment planning and assessment of therapeutic efficacy. During the past decade, functional ...
Probability distributions of surface gravity waves during spectral changes
