The TRPV1 receptor is known to play a role in nociceptive transmission in multiple organ systems, usually in response to the pain of inflammation. TRPV1 antagonism has so far shown limited benefit in antinociception. Capsaicin, a TRPV1 agonist, has been shown to induce a refractory period in the nerve terminal expressing TRPV1 and even, in sufficient(More)
We develop a dynamic model of new store openings and closings with spatial competition and an entry regulator in a continuous-time framework. In the model, opportunities to open a new store or to close an existing store arrive randomly. If a …rm receives an opportunity of opening a store in a particular location, it decides whether to send an application(More)
Let G be a group with the property that there are no infinite descending chains of non-subnormal subgroups of G for which all successive indices are infinite. The main result is that if G is a locally (soluble-by-finite) group with this property then either G has all subgroups subnormal or G is a soluble-by-finite minimax group. This result fills a gap left(More)
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are used to study the interlayer structure, hydrogen bonding, and energetics of hydration of Mg/Al (2:1 and 4:1) layered double hydroxide (LDH) or hydrotalcite (HT) intercalated with oxymetal anions, CrO(4)(2-), and VO(4)(3-). The ab initio forcefield COMPASS is employed for the simulations. The charge on the oxymetal(More)

A group G has subnormal deviation at most 1 if, for every descending chain H 0 > H 1 >. .. of non-subnormal subgroups of G, for all but finitely many i there is no infinite descending chain of non-subnormal subgroups of G that contain H i+1 and are contained in H i. This property P, say, was investigated in a previous paper by the authors, where soluble(More)
The truncated first occurrence vector (TFOV) is a data construct which the author has found useful in a variety of application areas. It is based on comparisons of adjacent items in a set ordered by some criterion. The use of the TFOV and its several derivatives improve efficiency and reduce the load on system resources. A contributing factor in performance(More)
