On Continuously Urysohn Spaces 

Guldurdek, Asli (2010-08-03)
We study the properties of weakly continuously Urysohn (denoted by wcU ) and continuously Urysohn (denoted by cU ) spaces. The class of continuously Urysohn spaces is known to contain the class of metrizable,submetrizable, ...

On demand feeding and the response of Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) to varying dietary protein levels in semi-intensive pond production. 

Strebel, Leila (2022-11-29)
Feed is one of the primary costs associated with commercial production of Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaus vannamei). The cost is the combined outcome of feed cost and feed management. As feeding technology evolves, ...

On Frobenius numbers in three variables 

Trimm, Janet (2006-08-15)
Given a set of relatively prime positive integers $\{a_1,a_2,\ldots, a_n\}$, after some point all positive integers are representable as a linear combination of the set with nonnegative coefficients. Which integer is the ...
