• #### Publisher Correction: Revealing nitrogen-containing species in commercial catalysts used for ammonia electrosynthesis ﻿

(Springer Nature, 2021-02-22)
In the version of this Analysis originally published, in Fig. 4 the second-from-bottom y-axis tick mark label was incorrect as $10^{–8}$;it should have been $10^{–10}$. This has now been corrected.
• #### Pulsed ferrite magnetic field generator for through-the-earth communication systems for disaster situation in mines ﻿

(Korean Magnetics Society, 2013-03)
A pulsed ferrite magnetic field generator (FMFG) was designed for the use in the 1000 m long through-theearth (TTE) communication system for mining disaster situations. To miniaturize the TTE system, a ferrite core having ...
• #### Pursuit evasion games using collision cones ﻿

(American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., 2018-01-07)
This paper presents a preliminary study into the use of collision cones in analyzing pursuit evasion games between two objects of arbitrary shapes. A two-player pursuit evasion game is considered, wherein a single pursuer ...
• #### QAcon: single model quality assessment using protein structural and contact information with machine learning techniques ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2017-02-15)
Motivation: Protein model quality assessment (QA) plays a very important role in protein structure prediction. It can be divided into two groups of methods: single model and consensus QA method. The consensus QA methods ...
• #### QoS-aware adaptive routing in multi-layer hierarchical software defined networks: a reinforcement learning approach ﻿

(IEEE, 2016)
Software-defined networks (SDNs) have been recognized as the next-generation networking paradigm that decouples the data forwarding from the centralized control. To realize the merits of dedicated QoS provisioning and fast ...
• #### A QoS-based broadcast protocol under blind information for multihop cognitive radio ad hoc networks ﻿

(IEEE, 2014-03)
Broadcasting is an important operation in wireless networks where control information is usually propagated as broadcasts for the realization of most networking protocols. In traditional ad hoc networks, broadcasts are ...
• #### Qualification of advanced composite pipe for use in fire water deluge systems on open type offshore oil platforms ﻿

(American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 1996-07)
Different types of FIBERBOND pipe in the dry condition and with a butt & strap joint were subjected to a controlled fire for fire endurance evaluation. Testing adheres to a modification of the ASTM 1173-95 guideline, which ...
• #### Quality in eLearning: Perceptions of instructors ﻿

(Industry, Engineering & Conference Management Systems Conference, 2020-03)
eLearning is rapidly growing and competing with traditional classroom learning. Advancements in digital technology and democratization of the internet have made eLearning more accessible, flexible, and convenient way for ...
• #### A quality-aware multi-level data aggregation approach to manage smart grid AMI traffic ﻿

(IEEE, 2019-02-01)
The inclusion of various intelligent electronic devices such as smart meters for AMI is expected to result in intermittent or frequent communications network congestion if additional network infrastructure investments are ...
