    Purpose The inflammatory markers chitinase-3-like protein 1 (CHI3L1) and chitotriosidase (CHIT1) have both been associated with cardiovascular complications. The aim of this preliminary observational study was to assess the roles and interaction ...
  • Sigurdardottir, Heida Maria (Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, 2013)
    In this thesis, we explore how objects affect the space around them. We show that spatial information is extracted from even completely novel objects. Information derived from the shape of objects is swiftly and automatically integrated into a variety ...

    Bosonic condensation belongs to the most intriguing phenomena in physics, and was mostly reserved for experiments with ultra-cold quantum gases. More recently, it became accessible in exciton-based solid-state systems at elevated temperatures. Here, ...
  • Huang, Guo-yuan; Ohlsson, Tommy; Zhou, Shun (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-04-05)
    We investigate possible interactions between neutrinos and massive scalar bosons via g ϕ ¯ ν ν ϕ (or massive vector bosons via g V ¯ ν γ μ ν V μ ) and explore the allowed parameter space of the coupling constant g ϕ (or g V ) ...
  • Cano, Zach; Wang, Shan-Qin; Dai, Zi-Gao; Wu, Xue-Feng (Hindawi Limited, 2017)
    We present a detailed report of the connection between long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and their accompanying supernovae (SNe). The discussion presented here places emphasis on how observations, and the modelling of observations, have constrained ...

    Predation and mortality are often difcult to estimate in the ocean, which hampers the management and conservation of marine fshes. We used data from pop-up satellite archival tags to investigate the ocean predation and mortality of adult Atlantic ...
  • Vilmundardóttir, Olga Kolbrún; Sigurmundsson, Friðþór Sófus; Pedersen, Gro; Belart, Joaquín M. C.; Kizel, Fadi; Falco, Nicola; Benediktsson, Jon Atli; Gísladóttir, Guðrún (SAGE Publications, 2018-10-07)
    Lava flows pose a hazard in volcanic environments and reset ecosystem development. A succession of dated lava flows provides the possibility to estimate the direction and rates of ecosystem development and can be used to predict future development. We ...
  • Sigurgeirsdóttir, Sigurbjörg (Stofnun stjórnsýslufræða og stjórnmála við Háskóla Íslands, 2015)
    Þessi rannsókn snýst um hugmyndir og hagsmuni í heilbrigðisþjónustu á Íslandi. Rannsóknin lýsir því hvernig annars vegar hugmyndin um heilsugæsluna sem fyrsta viðkomustað sjúklinga í heilbrigðiskerfinu og hugmyndin um það að sjúklingar eigi að hafa ...
