Tracking and Controlling Persons: Identification for Control in Cognitive Behaviours and Cultural PracticesDownload
This research aims (i) to demonstrate the unity of the phenomena of person identification and control and (ii) to propose the first philosophical theory that uses a single conceptual framework to describe and explain these phenomena. Chapter 1 introduces the philosophical significance of the...
The paper discusses how systems biology is working toward complex accounts that integrate explanation in terms of mechanisms and explanation by mathematical models—which some philosophers have viewed as rival models of explanation. Systems biology is an integrative approach, and it strongly...
Structural variant detection by large-scale sequencing reveals new evolutionary evidence on breed divergence between Chinese and European pigsDownload
In this study, we performed a genome-wide SV detection among the genomes of thirteen pigs from diverse Chinese and European originated breeds by next genetation sequencing, and constrcuted a single-nucleotide resolution map involving 56,930 putative SVs. We firstly identified a SV hotspot...

For decades oceanographers have understood the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) to be primarily driven by changes in the production of deep-water formation in the subpolar and subarctic North Atlantic. Indeed, current Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projections...
In this research, a literature review is conducted for landslide reactivation and movement caused by reservoir water level fluctuation around the world and especially in China in the past decades. Based on the movement patterns and characteristics, landslides triggered by reservoir level...
Magnetospheric convection and magnetopause shadowing effects in ULF wave‐driven energetic electron transportDownload
Magnetospheric radiation belt electron transport in the presence of ULF waves and a convection electric field is investigated using a model that includes a nightside plasma sheet source and electron losses by magnetopause shadowing. Narrow-band ULF waves launched from a prescribed dayside...
Anisotropic particles have generated an enormous amount of research interest due to their applications for drug delivery, electronic displays and as micromotors. However, up till now, there is no single protocol capable of generating particles of “patchy” composition with a variety of...
Identification of atomistic mechanisms for grain boundary migration in  twist boundaries: molecular dynamics simulationsDownload
In this thesis, molecular dynamics simulations were performed to characterize the atomic motions governing grain boundary migration in a series of  twist boundaries. Particularly, migrations of a θ=36.87° Σ5, a θ=22.63° Σ13 and a θ=40.23° general high angle  twist boundaries driven by...
