The global asymptotic stability for the disease free equilibrium of a mathematical model for malaria transmission with two delays is obtained by constructing appropriate Lyapunov functions.
Calcium phosphotungstate is synthesized and utilized to fabricate a polymer electrolyte membrane for the first time. The strong hygroscopicity of both Ca(2+) and PW12O40(3-) is found to "trap" bound water within the membrane, resulting in an appealing CO2 capture performance.
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a baby younger than 1-year-old. Even though researchers have discovered some factors that may put babies at extra risk, SIDS remains unpredictable up until now. One hypothesis is that impaired cardiovascular control may play a role in the underlying mechanism of SIDS. A… (More)
