Electron microscopic features and biochemical events were outlined in basidiospore germination of Schizophyllum commune. Normal ultrastructural changes included prominent vacuolization and more abundant endoplasmic reticulum. A lag phase in outgrowth included depletion of cellular reserves of trehalose, mannitol, and arabitol and subsequent increases in(More)

Because of its expressive strength, traditional rules of logic are not necessarily valid. As shown in [1], the threat of paradoxes, such as the Curry paradox,(More)
This article explains the Hasse principle and gives a self-contained development of certain counterexamples to this principle. The counterexamples considered are similar to the earliest counterexample discovered by Lind and Reichardt. This type of counterexample is important in the theory of elliptic curves: today they are interpreted as nontrivial elements(More)
