Behavioral evidence of hunting and foraging techniques by a top predator suggests the importance of scavenging for preadults
(Wiley Online Library, 2017)Scavenging may be a regular feeding behavior for some facultative raptor species occupying low quality habitats and/or with little experience in hunting techniques. However, its importance has been largely ... 
Behaviour of the current in a membranecovered disc microelectrode under steadystate conditions
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 1996)The inlaid disc electrode covered with a membrane can be modelled as a system with axial symmetry containing several parallel layers with different permeabilities. A recent solution of the steady state under diffusion ... 
Bimagic and other generalizations of super edgemagic labelings
(Cambridge University Press, 2011)In this paper, we use the product ⊗h in order to study super edgemagic labelings, bimagic labelings and optimal kequitable labelings. We establish, with the help of the product ⊗h, new relations between super edgemagic ... 
BiObjective Optimization Model Based on Profit and CO2 Emissions for Pig Deliveries to the Abattoir
(MDPI, 2018)This paper presents a biobjective model for optimizing pig deliveries to the abattoir accounting for total revenue and CO2 emissions. Fattening farms house the most important stage in pig production, and operations on ... 
Can wild ungulate carcasses provide enough biomass to maintain avian scavenger populations? An empirical assessment using a bioinspired computational model
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2011)Background: The reduction in the amount of food available for European avian scavengers as a consequence of restrictive public health policies is a concern for managers and conservationists. Since 2002, the application of ... 
Carrion ecology modelling for vulture conservation : are vulture restaurants needed to sustain the densest breeding population of the African whitebacked vulture?
(Wiley, 2015)As obligate scavengers, vultures are entirely dependent on carrion resources. In this study we model the carrion ecology of an ecosystem in Swaziland which is home to the densest breeding population of the African Whitebacked ... 
Center conditions and limits cycles for bilienard systems
(Texas State University, 2017)In this article we study the center problem for polynomial BiLiénard systems of degree n. Computing the focal values and using Gröbner bases we end the center conditions for such systems for n = 6. We also establish ... 
Center conditions for generalized polynomial Kukles systems
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2017)In this paper we study the center problem for certain generalized Kukles systems \[ \dot{x}= y, \qquad \dot{y}= P_0(x)+ P_1(x)y+P_2(x) y^2+ P_3(x) y^3, \] where $P_i(x)$ are polynomials of degree $n$, $P_0(0)=0$ and $P_0'(0) ... 
Center conditions for nilpotent cubic systems using Cherkas method
(Elsevier, 2016)In this work we study the center problem of a cubic polynomial differential system with nilpotent linear part. The analysis is based on the application of the Cherkas method to the Takens normal form. The study needs many ... 
Center conditions for polynomial Liénard systems
(Springer International Publishing, 2017)In this paper we study the center problem for polynomial Liénard systems of degree n with damping of degree n. Computing the focal values we find the center conditions for such systems for n=5 and using modular arithmetics ... 
Center cyclicity of a family of quartic polynomial differential system
(Springer, 20160901)In this paper we study the cyclicity of the centers of the quartic polynomial family written in complex notation as z = i z + z z (A z^2 + B z z + C z^2 ), where A,B,C. We give an upper bound for the cyclicity of any ... 
Center cyclicity of Lorenz, Chen and Lü systems
(Elsevier, 20181109)This work provides upper bounds on the cyclicity of the centers on center manifolds in the wellknown Lorenz family, and also in the Chen and Lü families. We prove that at most one limit cycle can be made to bifurcate from ... 
Center problem for systems with two monomial nonlinearities
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2016)We study the center problem for planar systems with a linear center at the origin that in complex coordinates have a nonlinearity formed by the sum of two monomials. Our first result lists several centers inside this family. ... 
Center problem for trigonometric Liénard systems
(Elsevier, 2017)We give a complete algebraic characterization of the nondegenerated centers for planar trigonometric Liénard systems. The main tools used in our proof are the classical results of Cherkas on planar analytic Liénard systems ... 
Center problem in the center manifold for quadratic differential systems in R^3
(Elsevier, 2016)Using tools of computer algebra based on the Gröbner basis theory we derive conditions for the existence of a center on a local center manifold for fifteen sevenparameter families of quadratic systems on R 3. To obtain ...
