The Sparta and the Athens Of Our Age At Daggers Drawn: Polities, Perceptions, and Peace (2004)
Journal Article
Rendall, M. (2004). The Sparta and the Athens Of Our Age At Daggers Drawn: Polities, Perceptions, and Peace. International Politics, 41(4),

While historically notions of democracy have varied widely, democratic peace theory has generally defined it in procedural terms. This article takes a close look at the Anglo-French confrontation of 1840. I show that while leaders on both sides were...

Infection by high‐risk HPV (human papillomavirus) is supposed to be the primary cause of cervical cancer. The HPV E2 protein (E2) is a DNA‐binding protein that regulates viral gene expression and is required for efficient viral replication. Overexpre...

Efforts to improve the efficiency and responsiveness of public services by harnessing the self-interest of professionals in state agencies have been widely debated in the recent literature on welfare state reform. In the context of social services, o... Read More about Human motivation and professional practice: of knights, knaves and social workers.

Directed percolation in a two dimensional stochastic fire-diffuse-fire model (2004)
Journal Article
Timofeeva, Y., & Coombes, S. (2004). Directed percolation in a two dimensional stochastic fire-diffuse-fire model

In this paper we establish, from extensive numerical experiments, that the two dimensional stochastic fire-diffuse-fire model belongs to the directed percolation universality class. This model is an idealized model of intracellular calcium release th... Read More about Directed percolation in a two dimensional stochastic fire-diffuse-fire model.

Evans functions for integral neural field equations with Heaviside firing rate function (2004)
Journal Article
Coombes, S., & Owen, M. R. Evans functions for integral neural field equations with Heaviside firing rate function. SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems, 3(4), doi:10.1137/040605953

In this paper we show how to construct the Evans function for traveling wave solutions of integral neural field equations when the firing rate function is a Heaviside. This allows a discussion of wave stability and bifurcation as a function of syste... Read More about Evans functions for integral neural field equations with Heaviside firing rate function.

Stromule formation is dependent upon plastid size, plastid differentiation status and the density of plastids within the cell (2004)
Journal Article
Waters, M., Fray, R., & Pyke, K. (2004). Stromule formation is dependent upon plastid size, plastid differentiation status and the density of plastids within the cell

Stromules are motile extensions of the plastid envelope membrane, whose roles are not fully understood. They are present on all plastid types but are more common and extensive on non-green plastids that are sparsely distributed within the cell. Durin...
