  • Klushin L.I.; Skvortsov A.M.; Leermakers F.A.M. (COLLEGE PKONE PHYSICS ELLIPSE, COLLEGE PK, MD 20740-3844 USA, 2004)
    The exact partition of the gaussian chain squeezed between two cylinders for a phase transition in a single macromolecule is analyzed. The polymer chain is squeezed between two pistons which results in abrupt transition ...
  • Chamseddine A.H. (COLLEGE PKONE PHYSICS ELLIPSE, COLLEGE PK, MD 20740-3844 USA, 2004)
    We show that it is possible to formulate gravity with a complex vierbein based on SL(2,C) gauge invariance. The proposed action is a four-form where the metric is not introduced but results as a function of the complex ...
  • Gutperle M.; Sabra W. (AMSTERDAMPO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2004)
    We construct time dependent S-brane solutions in gauged and ungauged supergravities in various dimensions. The supergravity solutions we find are all special cases of solutions in gauged supergravities with symmetric ...
  • Waterbury J. (, 2004)
    [No abstract available]
  • Kulchitsky D.R. (THOUSAND OAKS2455 TELLER RD, THOUSAND OAKS, CA 91320 USA, 2004)
    Using the case of Jordan, this article considers why public administrators, planners, and policy makers are overwhelmingly utilizing information technology (IT) for administrative and transactional processing activities ...
  • Liu J.; Sabra W.A. (AMSTERDAMPO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 2004)
    We construct new backgrounds of d-dimensional gravity with a negative cosmological constant coupled to a m-form field strength. We find a class of magnetically charged anti-de Sitter black holes with m-dimensional Einstein ...
  • Leermakers F.A.M.; Skvortsov A.M.; Klushin L.I. (Institute of Physics Publishing; BRISTOLDIRAC HOUSE, TEMPLE BACK, BRISTOL BS1 6BE, ENGLAND, 2004)
    The analysis of the exact partition function of an end-fixed Gaussian chain compressed between two pistons reveals a loop-like curve of the average pressure as a function of the inter-piston volume. In the thermodynamic ...
  • Liu J.T.; Wen W.-Y.; Sabra W.A. (NEW YORK233 SPRING ST, NEW YORK, NY 10013 USA, 2004)
    We construct consistent non-linear Kaluza Klein reduction ansatze for a subset of fields arising from the reduction of IIB* and M* theory on dS5 × H5 and dS4 × AdS 7, respectively. These reductions yield four and ...
  • Tabbal M.; Merel P.; Chaker M. (, 2004)
    We present an investigation of the effect of the process parameters, namely deposition pressure and laser intensity, on the growth and mechanical properties of carbon nitride (CNX) thin films synthesized by plasma assisted ...
  • Christidis T.; Tabbal M.; Isber S.; Rizk S. (LAUSANNEPO BOX 564, 1001 LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, 2004)
    Temperature-dependent electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and conductivity measurements were performed on unhydrogenated amorphous carbon nitride (a-CNx) thin films in an attempt to investigate electronic transport ...
  • El Eid M.F.; Meyer B.S.; The L.-S. (Institute of Physics Publishing; CHICAGO1427 E 60TH ST, CHICAGO, IL 60637-2954 USA, 2004)
    We present a detailed study of the evolution of massive stars of masses 15, 20, 25, and 30 M⊙ assuming solar-like initial chemical composition. The stellar sequences were evolved through the advanced burning phases up to ...
  • Chamseddine A.H. (COLLEGE PKONE PHYSICS ELLIPSE, COLLEGE PK, MD 20740-3844 USA, 2004)
    We formulate a theory of gravity with a matrix-valued complex vierbein based on the SL(2N, ℂ) ⊗8 SL(2N, ℂ) gauge symmetry. The theory is metric independent, and before symmetry breaking all fields are massless. The symmetry ...
  • Kazarian S.S.; Martin R.A. (CHICHESTERTHE ATRIUM, SOUTHERN GATE, CHICHESTER PO19 8SQ, W SUSSEX, ENGLAND, 2004)
    This research examined the structure and correlates of the Humor Styles Questionnaire (HSQ) in Lebanese university students. Four humour factors were found, as in the original Canadian samples: Affiliative, Self-Enhancing, ...
  • Sidanius J.; Henry P.J.; Pratto F.; Levin S. (THOUSAND OAKS2455 TELLER RD, THOUSAND OAKS, CA 91320 USA, 2004)
    There are at least two major ways of understanding the attributions that Arab young people used to explain the September 11 th attack on the World Trade Center: (a) in terms of a so-called clash of civilizations or an ...
  • Dietrich A.; Sparling P.B. (SAN DIEGO525 B ST, STE 1900, SAN DIEGO, CA 92101-4495 USA, 2004)
    Two experiments are reported that examine the possibility that exercise selectively influences different types of cognition. To our knowledge, these experiments represent the first attempt to study higher-cognitive processes ...
  • Dietrich A. (SAN DIEGO525 B ST, STE 1900, SAN DIEGO, CA 92101-4495 USA, 2004)
    Recent theoretical and empirical work in cognitive science and neuroscience is brought into contact with the concept of the flow experience. After a brief exposition of brain function, the explicit-implicit distinction is ...
  • Jureidini R.; Moukarbel N. (BASINGSTOKERANKINE RD, BASINGSTOKE RG24 8PR, HANTS, ENGLAND, 2004)
    Since the early 1990s, there has been a large influx of Sri Lankan women into Lebanon, serving primarily as domestic labour in private households. The Sri Lankan government, as with other countries, has actively encouraged ...
