Sustainable Science? Reducing the Carbon Impact of Scientific Mega-Meetings

Description: This article uses 9 years of annual meeting attendance data from the Ecological Society of American and the Association of American Geographers to assess the efficacy of two additional solutions: 1) alternate large national meetings that require significant air travel with smaller regional meetings that do not; and 2) incorporate geography into the meeting location selection process.

Commentary on "Effect of β-alanine and the solvent composition on the solubility of solvate of calcium D-pantothenate containing four molecules of methanol and one molecule of water (D-PC·4MeOH·1H₂O)"

Description: This article points out problems associated with two of the mathematical treatments used by authors Han et al. (2017) for the solubility behavior of calcium D-panthenate solvate as the mole fraction concentration β-alanine approaches zero.

Generalized parameter-free duality models in discrete minmax fractional programming based on second-order optimality conditions

Description: This article discusses the construction of six generalized second-order parameter-free duality models, and proves several weak, strong, and strict converse duality theorems for a discrete minmax fractional programming problem using two partitioning schemes and various types of generalized second-order (ℱ, β, ɸ, 𝜌, θ, 𝑚)-univexity assumptions.

Solution thermodynamics and preferential solvation of sulfamethazine in (methanol + water) mixtures

Description: This article discusses the determination of the solubility of sulfamethazine (SMT) in {methanol (1) + water (2)} co-solvent mixtures at five different temperatures from 293.15 K to 313.15 K. The Jouyban-Acree model was used to correlate/predict the solubility values.

A novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees

Description: In this paper, the authors discuss a novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees for quantitative traits. This method uses a retrospective view that treats the traits as fixed and the genotypes as random, which accounts for complex and undefined ascertainment of families.
