In Silico Design of Specific Primer Sets for the Detection of B.1.1.529 SARS-CoV-2 Variant of Concern (Omicron)

Mauro Petrillo, Maddalena Querci, Philippe Corbisier, Antonio Marchini, Gerhard Buttinger & Guy Van den Eede
On 26 November 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified variant B.1.1.529, reported earlier by the South African authorities as “Variant of Concern” with the name Omicron. The decision was taken because Omicron is bearing a number of mutations with a potential impact on its transmissibility, severity of disease following infection, as well as on the effectiveness of immune protection resulting from both vaccines and natural infection. In this paper, we present an in silico...

Arguments in Favor of the Riemann Hypothesis

Frank Vega
The Riemann hypothesis is a conjecture that the Riemann zeta function has its zeros only at the negative even integers and complex numbers with real part $\frac{1}{2}$. The Riemann hypothesis belongs to the David Hilbert's list of 23 unsolved problems. Besides, it is one of the Clay Mathematics Institute's Millennium Prize Problems. This problem has remained unsolved for many years. The Robin criterion states that the Riemann hypothesis is true if and only if the...

Quantum gravity

Ilija Barukčić
Background: Incorporating both the principles of quantum theory and the principles of relativity theory
into one unique mathematical framework could be of help to provide us with a satisfactory description of the microstructure of spacetime, even at the so-called Planck scale, while unifying the four basic fields of nature.
Methods: Our contemporary understanding of gravity is based more or less on general relativity theory, which prefers to describe gravitation from a geometric point of view...

African migrants plight in India: Afrophobia impedes India's race for Africa's resources and markets

Dirk Kohnert
ABSTRACT & RÉSUMÉ & ZUSAMMENFASSUNG : Africa and India share a long history of trade, investment and slavery. The Portuguese alone brought up to 80,000 slaves from Mozambique to India since the 16th century. Unlike slaves in other parts of the world, African slaves, soldiers, and traders had a strong military and cultural influence on India's culture and society. Some of the slaves even held privileged positions. Today India competes with other global players, especially...

Classical logic and study design

Ilija Barukčić
Background:
The scientific value of a study is determined by various factors, but to a major extent by the design of a study too.
Methods:
Ex post, it is difficult to correct errors in study design completely. Therefore, various mathematical aspects of a design of a study are discussed in this article.
Results:
Under conditions of causal investigations, it is appropriate to assure a study design with p(IOI) = 0.
The relative risk...

M. S Hijratullah
Administrasi merupakan suatu kegiatan mengorganisasikan, memanajemen sumber daya. Dalam arti sempit administrasi merupakan kegiatan ketatausahaan. Kemitraan dikenal dengan istilah gotong royong atau bekerjasama dari berbagai pihak, baik secara kelompok maupun individual. Kemitraan adalah suatu kerja sama usaha formal yang saling menguntungkan antara pengusaha kecil dengan pengusaha menengah atau besar untuk mencapai suatu tujuan bersama berdasarkan kesepakatan prinsip bersama. Dalam artikel ini akan menyajikan berbagai prinsip administrasi kemitraan sekolah. Yaitu yang berisikan enam prinsip, Intergrity, Continuity,...

Goldbach's conjecture. Because I think it's true.

Dante Servi
I refer to the following conjecture. "Any even number, greater than or equal to 4 is the sum of two prime numbers." I begin by giving an equivalent definition of the conjecture. For every even number that is not twice a prime number, there is at least one pair of prime numbers equidistant from its half. I help myself by graphically representing what has just been stated, I do it for a limited amount of...

Some slide-cascades in social-ecological systems viewed by spatially explicit and multi-scale models

Maxime Leloup, Maximilien Cosme, Franck Pommereau & Cédric Gaucherel
Food security is a key aspect of a sustainable society, and some threats as climate change and food
riots may unsettle any social-ecological system such as the Dano’s region in Burkina Faso. Some
facets of food security such as food production and food distribution are inherently spatial, and
taking space into account may refine our region understanding. We developed both spatialized and
non-spatialized discrete event models to address food security dynamics in the Dano socialecological

Spatio-temporal prediction of soil moisture using soil maps, topographic indices and NASA Earthdata

Marian Schönauer, Robert Prinz, Kari Väätäinen, Rasmus Astrup, Dariusz Pszenny, Harri Lindeman & Dirk Jaeger
The work presented looks at methods to model field measured spatio-temporal variations of soil moisture content (SMC, [%vol]) – a crucial factor for soil strength and thus trafficability. We incorporated large-scaled maps of soil characteristics, high-resolution topographic information - depth-to-water (DTW) and topographic wetness index - and openly available temporal soil moisture data provided by the NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive mission. Time-series measurements of SMC were captured at six study sites across Europe. This...

Effects of a Shintergy-sinchronized brain over a laser beam: Influence of a past measurement from the present time

, Arturo Ortiz-Tapia, & Alan Armando Aguero-Rojas-Vertiz
Strong correlations are found between brain activity of a subject distant in space and some measurements made previously in time (past time), performing Shintergy-like synchronization under controlled conditions, and measurements made with a 100mW, 532nm laser.

Globalization: a challenge for social coexistence

Mario D'Andreta
This article proposes a theoretical and methodological approach to the study of the issue of globalization, focused on its impact on social coexistence, from a psychosociological perspective aimed at analysing the processes influencing the way of living together in the contemporary world. This perspective of analysis is grounded in the field of the multidisciplinary approach of the psychology of coexistence, based on the theory of collusion formulated by Carli and Paniccia. It allows to identify...

Existence of Prime Numbers

Glenn Patrick King Ang
Prime numbers are quite fascinating, considering their very existence seems to have no identifiable patterns that can give insight as to how and why prime numbers exist in the first place. In particular, for a world that has enjoyed the benefits of mathematics for thousands of years, it might prove difficult to look at the truths that have been constructed over the years from a different perspective. This paper details some observable properties between prime...

Proving P = NP through the 3-Partition Problem

Glenn Patrick King Ang
The P versus NP problem is a very intriguing concept as it asks whether difficult problems have an alternative easier solution, but the difficulty of a problem usually only exist from the perspective of the solver. This paper details an alternative method to efficiently solve a 3-partition problem, which is considered a strongly NP-complete problem. Thus, proving that there exists an efficient method to solve a 3-partition problem can also prove P = NP. Section...

Gravitational Coupling Constant, Neutrinos And Cosmological Constant

Deepak Pashilkar
Masses of the three neutrino mass eigenstates are predicted to be m₀, 4m₀ & 22m₀ where m₀ = 2.283 meV/c². These predictions are arrived at by applying two ad-hoc postulates to neutrino oscillation data. First postulate is that the mass m₀ of the lightest neutrino mass eigenstate is the smallest quantum of mass and masses of all the massive elementary particles are positive integral multiples of m₀. The dimensionless gravitational coupling constant α_g is then...
