Journal Article
Scholz, R., Williams, M. E., Matijevič, G., Bienaymé, O., Wyse, R. F., Piffl, T., …Zwitter, T. (2014). The RAVE survey: the Galactic escape speed and the mass of the Milky Way. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 562, A91. doi:10.1051/0004-6361/201322531

We made new estimates of the Galactic escape speed at various Galactocentric radii using the latest data release of the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE DR4). Compared to previous studies we have a database that is larger by a factor of 10, as well a... Read More about The RAVE survey: the Galactic escape speed and the mass of the Milky Way.

Development and three-dimensional morphology of the zygomaticotemporal suture in primate skulls (2014)
Journal Article

Cranial sutures are an essential part of the growing skull, allowing bones to increase in size during growth, with their morphology widely believed to be dictated by the forces and displacements that they experience. The zygomaticotemporal suture in... Read More about Development and three-dimensional morphology of the zygomaticotemporal suture in primate skulls.

— The spectrum monitoring has gained new aspects with development of the software defined radio SDR as its very important issue in the spectrum management area. In this paper a spectrum monitoring technique with SDR is proposed, the setup of the prot... Read More about A Spectrum Sensing Test Bed based on Matlab and USRP2.

Teacher and student perceptions of the development of learner autonomy : a case study in the biological sciences (2014)
Journal Article

Biology teachers in a UK university expressed a majority view that student learning autonomy increases with progression through university. A minority suggested that pre-existing diversity in learning autonomy was more important and that individuals...

A new stellar chemo-kinematic relation reveals the merger history of the milky way disk (2014)
Journal Article
Minchev, I., Chiappini, C., Martig, M., Steinmetz, M., De Jong, R. S., Boeche, C., …Williams, M. (2014). A new stellar chemo-kinematic relation reveals the merger history of the milky way disk. Astrophysical journal. Letters, 781(1), L20. doi:10.1088/2041-8205/781/1/l20

The velocity dispersions of stars near the Sun are known to increase with stellar age, but age can be difficult to determine, so a proxy like the abundance of α elements (e.g., Mg) with respect to iron, [α/Fe], is used. Here we report an unexpected b... Read More about A new stellar chemo-kinematic relation reveals the merger history of the milky way disk.

Anastomosing reach control on hydraulics and sediment distribution on the Sabie River, South Africa (2014)

Massive stars at solar metallicity contribute to the production of heavy elements with atomic masses between A = 60 and A = 90 via the so-called weak s-process (which takes place during core He and shell C burning phases). Furthermore, recent studies... Read More about Impact of the uncertainty in α-captures on 22Ne on the weak s-process in massive stars.

Maxitive Integral of Real-Valued Functions (2014)

The paper pursues the definition of a maxitive integral on all real-valued functions (i.e., the integral of the pointwise maximum of two functions must be the maximum of their integrals). This definition is not determined by maxitivity alone: additio... Read More about Maxitive Integral of Real-Valued Functions.

The paper studies the continuity of rules for updating imprecise probability models when new data are observed. Discontinuities can lead to robustness issues: this is the case for the usual updating rules of the theory of imprecise probabilities. An...
