• #### A model of the effect of interspecies competition for light on dry-matter production ﻿

(CSIRO Publishing, 1983-12)
A model of the effect of interspecies competition for light on the daily dry-matter production of competing species is developed. It describes the absorption of light by the component species, accounting for their different ...
• #### A Monte Carlo simulation of effects of central tendency error on the magnitude of Cronbach's coefficient alpha ﻿

(Sage Publications, 1978-02)
Relationships between central tendency error and estimates of reliability based on Cronbach's coefficient alpha were explored. Using a Monte Carlo simulation, no differences were found between the means of distributions ...
• #### A novel Bayesian method for variable selection and estimation in binary quantile regression ﻿

(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2022-07-03)
In this paper, we develop a Bayesian hierarchical model and associated computation strategy for simultaneously conducting parameter estimation and variable selection in binary quantile regression. We specify customary ...
• #### A psychophysical comparison of two stylus-driven soft keyboards ﻿

(1999)
This study compared text entry performance of two stylus-driven soft keyboards for use in hand-held computing devices: the QWERTY and the T9. Participants transcribed text presented on a computer screen into a personal ...
• #### A re-examination of subjective components of community satisfaction in a British new town ﻿

(Taylor & Francis, 1983-06)
The scalability and dimensionality of the Community Satisfaction Scale were re-examined for a second sample (N = 412) drawn from a British new town after an interval of eight years. The results suggest that both the domain ...
• #### A reexamination of the neighborhood as a socio-spatial schema ﻿

(Wiley, 1984-07)
Lee's conception of the "socio-spatial schema" was reexamined for a sample of respondents from a British new town. Results showed that over half of the respondents differentiated their neighborhoods from smaller "areas of ...
• #### A second order factor analysis of community satisfaction in a British New Town ﻿

(Wichita State University, Department of Psychology, 1976)
First-order community satisfaction factors derived in an analysis of data from a British New Town were subjected to secondary factor analysis; an oblique solution with five factors resulted. The data suggest several broad ...
• #### A simulation model assisted study on water and nitrogen dynamics and their effects on crop performance in the wheat-maize system: (II) model calibration, evaluation and simulated experimentation ﻿

(Springer Verlag, 2009-05)
The test on the model with data collected from two years ' field experiments revealed an ability to satisfactorily simulate crop parameters such as LAI, biomass accumulation and partitioning, yield, and variables influencing ...
• #### A simulation model-assisted study on water and nitrogen dynamics and their effects on crop performance in the wheat-maize system I: The model ﻿

(Springer Verlag, 2007-04)
Based on data collected from field experiments, a comprehensive model was built on the Ithink (a registered trademark of iSee Systems) platform to simulate the dynamics of water and nitrogen, and crop performance in the ...
• #### A strong law of large numbers for nonparametric regression ﻿

Suppose (i1,n, ..., in,n) is permutation of (1, ..., n) for each positive integer n such that the order of the indices {1, h., n - 1} in the permutation corresponding to n - 1 is preserved. If {Zn} is a sequence of mean-zero ...
• #### A test of a model for light interception by mixtures ﻿

(CSIRO Publishing, 1984-12)
Predicted and observed data for the amount of light energy intercepted by mixtures of clover and ryegrass are compared, in an additional test of a model which relates competition for light to crop dry matter production. ...
• #### A window of opportunity: Examining the potential impact of mandatory sexual assault kit (SAK) testing legislation on crime prevention ﻿

(American Psychological Association, 2022-03-01)
Large stockpiles of untested sexual assault kits (SAKs; or “rape kits”) have been found in police departments throughout the United States. SAKs contain biological evidence (semen, saliva, and blood) that can be analyzed ...
• #### A$_2$P$_2$S$_6$ (A = Ba and Pb): a good platform to study the polymorph effect and lone pair effect to form an acentric structure ﻿

(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2022-05-14)
Three ternary thiophosphates α-Ba$_2$P$_2$S$_6$, β-Ba$_2$P$_2$S$_6$, and Pb$_2$P$_2$S$_6$ were synthesized via a high temperature salt flux method or an I2 transport reaction. β-Ba$_2$P$_2$S$_6$ and Pb$_2$P$_2$S$_6$ were ...
• #### The ability of the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory--Third Edition to detect malingering ﻿

(American Psychological Association, 2003-06)
This study investigated the ability of the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory--Third Edition (MCMI-III) to discriminate students malingering psychopathology (n = 106) from bona fide psychiatric inpatients (n = 202). ...
• #### Abnormal expression of genes associated with development and inflammation in the heart of mouse maternal phenylketonuria offspring ﻿

(PubMed, 2005)
This study describes gene expression in the fetus hearts obtained from mouse model for phenylketonuria. These hearts have cardiovascular disease (CVD). Therefore genes involved in CVD were examined. Several genes associated ...
• #### Acceptance and Commitment Therapy preceded by an experimental Attention Bias Modification procedure in recurrent depression: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial ﻿

(Biomed Central, 2018-03-27)
Background: This project studies the effect of group-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) following Attention Bias Modification (ABM) on residual symptoms in recurrent depression. ACT is a cognitive-behavioral ...
• #### Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Preceded by Attention Bias Modification on Residual Symptoms in Depression: A 12-Month Follow-Up ﻿

(Frontiers Media, 2019-08-29)
Depression is a highly recurrent disorder with limited treatment alternatives for reducing risk of subsequent episodes. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and attention bias modification (ABM) separately have shown ...
• #### Access to proper sanitation in the Okponglo Community: The need for public toilets ﻿
