However, the association between inhibitory control (IC) and ASC, especially in adulthood, is unclear. The current(More)
We extend all previous results of our [Sm4], [Sm5] to the case of general (non-diagonal coefficents) Quasilinear First Order Hyperbolic Systems, in slab domains with an odd number of Spacial Dimensions greater than three, prove a comparision Principle for viscosity sub and super solutions of such general systems, and apply our results to the Cauchy Problem(More)
