Viruses are highly abundant in temperate soils, ranging from 107 to 109 g−1, and outnumbering soil bacteria from 5- to over 1,000-fold. In order to determine the potential impacts of viruses on soil microbial communities, it is important to establish reliable methods for comparing changes in viral abundances within and across soil samples. The goals of this(More)
—A new method is presented to deal with shape optimization problems. In this method, the geometry is parameterized by B-spline shape functions with the control points of the B-spline curves becoming the design variables in the optimization scheme. The core idea of the method presented is to introduce the knot insertion algorithm which can keep the geometry(More)
