Comparing the lopsided Hermitian/skew-Hermitian splitting (LHSS) method and Hermitian/skewHermitian splitting (HSS) method, a new criterion for choosing the above two methods is presented, which is better than that of Li, Huang and Liu [Modified Hermitian and skew-Hermitian splitting methods for nonHermitian positive-definite linear systems, Numer.

The influence of male age on female mate preference and reproductive performance in the cabbage beetle, Colaphellus bowringi was examined, using male and female adults of varying ages (young, middle-aged and old) after a single mating. In a simultaneous choice test, females of all age class preferentially mated with middle-aged males. Mating duration was(More)
The influence of female age on male mating preference and reproductive success has been studied using a promiscuous cabbage beetle, Colaphellus bowringi Baly (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). In a simultaneous choice test, middle-aged females had significantly greater mating success than young and old females. In single pair trials, when paired with middle-aged(More)
