The effect of the nitrification inhibitor 3,4-dimethylpyrazole phosphate (DMPP) on N transformations and composition of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) communities was investigated at the centimeter scale in a microcosm experiment under laboratory conditions. After 28 days, samples were collected from soil treated with urea or urea and DMPP at increasing(More)
OpenACC provides a high-productivity API for programming GPUs and similar accelerator devices. One of the last steps in tuning OpenACC programs is selecting values for the num_gangs and vector_length clauses, which control how a parallel workload is distributed to an accelerator's processing units. In this paper, we present OptACC, an autotuner that can(More)
Oleanolic acid (OA) is a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpenoid and possesses diverse pharmacological activities, including anti-cancer effects that have been confirmed in multiple types of human cancers. However, the potential effect of natural OA on human prostate cancer is still unclear. The present study aimed to explore whether and how OA exerted(More)
Let k ≥ 2 be an integer and G a 2-connected graph of order |G| ≥ 3 with minimum degree at least k. Suppose that |G| ≥ 8k − 16 for even |G| and |G| ≥ 6k − 13 for odd |G|. We prove that G has a [k, k + 1]-factor containing a given Hamiltonian cycle if max{deg G (x), deg G (y)} ≥ |G|/2 for each pair of nonadjacent vertices x and y in G. This is best possible(More)
