[1] Sea surface temperature (SST) for the central equatorial Indian Ocean, has been reconstructed over the last 137 kyr, from Mg/Ca of the planktonic foraminiferal species Globigerinoides ruber. According to our record the equatorial Indian Ocean SST was 2.1 C colder during the last glacial maximum as compared to present times. The data further shows that(More)
We study general two-body decays of primitive and non-primitive 1 4 -BPS dyons in four-dimensional type IIB string compactifications. We find a “master equation” for marginal stability that generalises the curve found by Sen for 1 2 -BPS decay, and analyse this equation in a variety of cases including decays to 1 4 -BPS products. For 1 2 -BPS decays, an(More)
We obtain the complete set of constraints on the moduli of N = 4 superstring compactifications that permit “rare” marginal decays of 1 4 -BPS dyons to take place. The constraints are analysed in some special cases. The analysis extends in a straightforward way to multi-particle decays. We discuss the possible relation between general multi-particle decays(More)
OBJECTIVE The prevalence of antibodies in different organ-specific autoimmune diseases can vary depending on the racial group studied. Data on the prevalence of antibodies against steroidogenic enzymes in Addison's disease is available only for white Caucasians. We have evaluated the frequency of antibodies against adrenal cytoplasm, 21-hydroxylase,(More)

We examine the duality between type 0 noncritical strings and topological B-model strings, with special emphasis on the flux dependence. The former theory is known to exhibit holomorphic factorisation upto a subtle flux-dependent disc term. We give a precise definition of the B-model dual and propose that it includes both compact and noncompact B-branes.(More)
