Patricia B. Humphrey, Georgia Southern University2014
Georgia Southern University faculty member Patricia B. Humphrey authored "Student Solutions Manual" to accompany the publication Statistics in Practice.
Statistics in Practice is an exciting new addition to W.H. Freeman’s introductory statistics list. Co-authored by David Moore, it maintains his pioneering data analysis approach but incorporates significant changes designed to help students. Statistics in Practice introduces data collection early, covers tests of proportions first before tests of means, and engages students with its conversational writing style. SIP is a modern approach to the introductory statistics course, clearly showing the importance of statistics to students during their academic life ... Read more

Gestur Olafsson, Eric L. Grinberg, and David Larson et al.1-1-2014
Georgia Southern University faculty member Shijun Zheng co-authored “Harmonic Analysis Related to Schrödinger Operators” in the publication Contemporary Mathematics in AMS Book Series.
Chapter Summary: In this article we give an overview on some recent development of Littlewood-Paley theory for Schrödinger operators. We extend the Littlewood-Paley theory for special potentials considered in the authors' previous work. We elaborate our approach by considering potential in C∞0 or Schwartz class in one dimension. In particular the low energy estimates are treated by establishing some new and refined asymptotics for the eigenfunctions and their Fourier transforms. We give maximal function characterization of the ... Read more

Chad Posick, Georgia Southern University; Michael Roque; and Matt DeLisi, Iowa State University12-2014
Georgia Southern University faculty member Chad Posick co-authored "Empathy, Crime, and Justice" in the publication The Routledge International Handbook of Biosocial Criminology.
Biosocial criminology is an interdisciplinary field that aims to explain crime and antisocial behavior by exploring both biological factors and environmental factors. Since the mapping of the human genome, scientists have been able to study the biosocial causes of human behaviour with the greatest specificity.
After decades of almost exclusive sociological focus, criminology has undergone a paradigm shift where the field is more interdisciplinary and this book combines perspectives from criminology and sociology with contributions from ... Read more

Georgia Southern University faculty member Li Ma authored “Polynitroxylated Hemoglobin as a Multifunctional Therapeutic for Critical Care and Transfusion Medicine” in the publication Selected Topics in Nanomedicine.
Chapter Summary: Polynitroxylation (PN) technology is a chemical modification process, which covalently links multiple nitroxides to various macromolecules, including hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). Like free nitroxides, PN products possess superoxide dismutase mimetic activity. In addition, when redox coupled with heme centers, polynitroxylated hemoglobins have catalase and peroxidase mimetic activities. PN of HBOCs allows the therapeutic benefits of nitroxides to be target delivered intravascularly. More significantly, it corrects the intrinsic toxicity of HBOCs and ... Read more
