• #### Conjuring the Mysteries of Slavery: Voodoo, Fetishism, and Stereotype in Ishmael Reed’s Flight to Canada ﻿

(Duke University Press, 2005)
• #### Connected components of affine Deligne–Lusztig varieties in mixed characteristic ﻿

(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2015)
We determine the set of connected components of minuscule affine Deligne–Lusztig varieties for hyperspecial maximal compact subgroups of unramified connected reductive groups. Partial results are also obtained for non-minuscule ...
• #### Connecting Binuclear Pd(III) and Mononuclear Pd(IV) Chemistry by Pd–Pd Bond Cleavage ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2012)
Oxidation of binuclear Pd(II) complexes with PhICl$_2$ or PhI(OAc)$_2$ has previously been shown to afford binuclear Pd(III) complexes featuring a Pd–Pd bond. In contrast, oxidation of binuclear Pd(II) complexes with ...
• #### Connecting high-field quantum oscillations to zero-field electron spectral functions in the underdoped cuprates ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
The nature of the pseudogap regime of cuprate superconductors at low hole density remains unresolved. It has a number of seemingly distinct experimental signatures: a suppression of the paramagnetic spin susceptibility at ...
• #### The Connection Machine Systems CM-5 ﻿

(1993)
The Connection Machine system CM-5 is a parallel computing system scalable to Tflop performance, hundreds of Gbytes of primary storage, Tbytes of secondary storage and Gbytes/s of I/O bandwidth. The system has been designed ...
• #### Connections between markets and learning ﻿

(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010)
We provide an overview of recent research exploring the striking mathematical connections that exist between market maker mechanisms for prediction markets and no-regret learning. We describe how these connections can be ...
• #### Conrad Gessner's Paratexts ﻿

(Schwabe, 2016)
Throughout his prolific publishing career Conrad Gessner composed abundant paratexts which offer valuable insight into his methods of working. Gessner wrote many dedications, only a minority of which were addressed to major ...
• #### Conscious Processing During Retrieval Can Occur in Early and Late Visual Regions ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2013)
Previous evidence has suggested a functional-anatomic dissociation between conscious and nonconscious processing during retrieval where early visual regions BA17/18 are associated with nonconscious processing and late ...
• #### Conscription as Regulation ﻿

(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005)
We examine the practice of military conscription around the world from the perspective of two standard theories, and a new one, which emphasizes the fixed cost of introducing and administering the draft as a deterrent to ...
• #### A Consensus on Second Stage Analyses in Ecological Inference Models ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2003)
• #### Consequences of Pacing the Pleistocene 100 kyr Ice Ages by Nonlinear Phase Locking to Milankovitch Forcing ﻿

(American Geophysical Union, 2006)
The consequences of the hypothesis that Milankovitch forcing affects the phase (e.g., termination times) of the 100 kyr glacial cycles via a mechanism known as “nonlinear phase locking” are examined. Phase locking provides ...
• #### Conservation Genetics of the Endangered Coachella Valley Fringe-toed Lizard (Uma inornata) ﻿

(Herpatologists League, 2007)
We used in microsatellite loci to examine rangewide population structure and interpopulation gene flow in the federally threatened Coachella Valley fringe-toed lizard (<i>Uma inornata</i>). Our results indicate low population ...
• #### Conservation of changing landscapes: vegetation, land-use history, and fire on Cape Cod National Seashore ﻿

(Ecological Society of America, 2003)
The pervasive impact of historical land use is often underappreciated in the management and restoration of conservation areas and natural resources. We used historical and ecological approaches to determine the relative ...
• #### Conservation of uORF repressiveness and sequence features in mouse, human and zebrafish ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
Upstream open reading frames (uORFs) are ubiquitous repressive genetic elements in vertebrate mRNAs. While much is known about the regulation of individual genes by their uORFs, the range of uORF-mediated translational ...
• #### Conservation Weighting Functions Enable Covariance Analyses to Detect Functionally Important Amino Acids ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2014)
The explosive growth in the number of protein sequences gives rise to the possibility of using the natural variation in sequences of homologous proteins to find residues that control different protein phenotypes. Because ...
• #### A conserved cell growth cycle can account for the environmental stress responses of divergent eukaryotes ﻿

(American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), 2012)
The respiratory metabolic cycle in budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) consists of two phases most simply defined phenomenologically: low oxygen consumption (LOC) and high oxygen consumption (HOC). Each phase is ...
• #### Conserved Current Correlators of Conformal Field Theories in 2+1 Dimensions ﻿

(American Physical Society (APS), 2013)
We compute current correlators of the CPN−1 field theory in 2+1 dimensions, both at the critical point and in the phase with spontaneously broken SU(N) symmetry. Universal constants are obtained to next-to-leading order ...
• #### Conserved Roles for Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 in the Regulation of Lateral Organ Development in Aquilegia X Coerulea 'Origami' ﻿

(Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2013)
Background: Epigenetic regulation is necessary for maintaining gene expression patterns in multicellular organisms. The Polycomb Group (PcG) proteins form several complexes with important and deeply conserved epigenetic ...
• #### Consigning the Twentieth Century to History: Alternative Narratives for the Modern Era ﻿

(University of Chicago Press, 2000)
• #### Consistency and Cautious Fictitious Play ﻿

(Elsevier, 1995)
We study a variation of fictitious play, in which the probability of each action is an exponential function of that action's utility against the historical frequency of opponents' play. Regardless of the opponents' strategies, ...
