We address the feasibility (existence of non-trivial solutions) of the pair of alternative conic systems of constraints Ax = 0, x ∈ C and −A T y ∈ C * , where A ∈ R m×n , m < n, and C ⊆ R n is a closed convex cone. To this end, we reformulate the above pair of conic systems as a primal-dual pair of conic programs. Each of the conic programs corresponds to a(More)
Executive Summary The cycle of community reinvestment and displacement of low-income residents is a process present in cities throughout the U.S., Europe and other developed nations. This study of the impact of gentrification on different groups of Chicagoans is undertaken at the request of the City of Chicago Commission on Human Relations. In particular,(More)
Obesity can lead to skeletal muscle atrophy, a pathological condition characterized by the loss of strength and muscle mass. A feature of muscle atrophy is a decrease of myofibrillar proteins as a result of ubiquitin proteasome pathway overactivation, as evidenced by increased expression of the muscle-specific ubiquitin ligases atrogin-1 and MuRF-1.(More)
