We study the Sakai-Sugimoto model of holographic QCD at zero temperature and finite chemical potential. We find that as the baryon chemical potential is increased above a critical value, there is a phase transition to a nuclear matter phase characterized by a condensate of instantons on the probe D-branes in the string theory dual. As a result of(More)
BACKGROUND Fiducial markers and daily electronic portal imaging (EPI) can reduce the risk of geographic miss in prostate cancer radiotherapy. The purpose of this study was to estimate CTV to PTV margin requirements, without and with the use of this image guidance strategy. METHODS 46 patients underwent placement of 3 radio-opaque fiducial markers prior to(More)
We study the constraints the ∆F = 2 processes in the neutral meson sector place on the admissible form of quark mass matrices that can reproduce the experimentally observed quark mass spectrum and the CKM mixing pattern, as well as allowing for the RS1 scenario to pass the constraints from the electroweak precision measurements. We found that only the(More)
BACKGROUND Aggressive medical management of cancer patients at the end of life (EOL) is an indicator of health services quality. We evaluated the variations in EOL cancer therapy utilization and in acute care hospital deaths across different types of cancer within the setting of a regionalized cancer program. METHODS Intravenous chemotherapy and(More)
STUDY QUESTION Do differences in heritable genetic factors explain some of the difference in age at natural menopause (ANM) among populations? SUMMARY ANSWER One single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-ANM association (rs16991615) detected in European women was replicated in Iranian women. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY Genetics plays an important role in ANM, and(More)
We study in an effective operator approach how the effects of new physics from various scenarios containing extra Z ′ gauge bosons or doubly charged scalars can affect, and thus be tested by the precision polarized Moeller scattering experiment. We give Wilson coefficients for various classes of models, and we deduce constraints on the parameter space of(More)
