Carnivora
ABSTRACT The locality of Küçükçekmece has yielded a unique carnivoran fauna representing one of the rare fossil assemblages comprising both marine and terrestrial species. The studied sampleExpand
Heavy-quarkonium suppression in p-A collisions from parton energy loss in cold QCD matter
A bstractThe effects of parton energy loss in cold nuclear matter on heavy-quarkonium suppression in p-A collisions are studied. It is shown from first principles that at large quarkonium energy EExpand
Radiative energy loss of high-energy quarks and gluons in a finite volume quark - gluon plasma
The medium induced energy loss spectrum of a high energy quark or gluon traversing a hot QCD medium of finite volume is studied. We model the interaction by a simple picture of static scatteringExpand

Systematic review of European Nimravinae (Mammalia, Carnivora, Nimravidae) and the phylogenetic relationships of Palaeogene Nimravidae

Inland human settlement in southern Arabia 55,000 years ago. New evidence from the Wadi Surdud Middle Paleolithic site complex, western Yemen.
TLDR
This period would have witnessed the development of local Middle Paleolithic traditions in the Arabian Peninsula, which suggests more complex settlement dynamics and possible population interactions than commonly inferred by the current models of modern human expansion out of Africa. Expand
Getting a grip on the evolution of grasping in musteloid carnivorans: a three‐dimensional analysis of forelimb shape
TLDR
The results largely confirm predictions, demonstrating that musteloids with greater grasping skills differ markedly from others in the shape of their forelimb bones, and suggest that the evolution of an arboreal lifestyle likely preceded the development of enhanced grasping ability. Expand
Implications of the functional anatomy of the hand and forearm of Ailurus fulgens (Carnivora, Ailuridae) for the evolution of the ‘false‐thumb’ in pandas
TLDR
The functional anatomy of this structure in the red panda is studied, comparing it with existing descriptions of the grasping mechanism in both pandas, and it is shown that previous interpretations of the radial sesamoid in Ailurus as a rod‐like structure without direct articulation to the wrist bones are inaccurate.

Induced gluon radiation in a QCD medium
Abstract Soft gluon radiation induced by multiple scattering of a fast quark or gluon propagating through QCD matter is discussed. After revisiting the Landau-Pomeranchuk-Migdal effect in QED we showExpand
A new amphicyonid (Mammalia, Carnivora, Amphicyonidae) from the late middle Miocene of northern Thailand and a review of the amphicyonine record in Asia
TLDR
It appears that Maemohcyon does not have close relationships with contemporary Amphicyon , Pseudocyon, Ischyrocyon, Pliocyon or earlier genera, and is likely to have evolved in this insulated region until the late middle Miocene. Expand
