  1. 1. Diversity Underfoot Systematics and Biogeography of the Dictyostelid Social Amoebae

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Allison L Perrigo; Sandra Baldauf; Maria Romeralo; David Bass; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Amoeba; biogeography; cryptic species; dictyostelid; latitudinal gradient; multicellularity; protist; social amoeba; phylogenetics; systematics; new species; Biology with specialization in Systematics; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik;

    Abstract : Dictyostelids (Amoebozoa) are a group of social amoebae consisting of approximately 150 species, which are found in terrestrial habitats worldwide. They are divided into eight major clades based on molecular phylogeny, and within these clades are many species complexes. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Amoebas and Multidimensional Residues

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University

    Author : Johannes Lundqvist; Mats Andersson; Martín Sombra; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amoeba; multidimensional residue; duality principle; effective; uniform; Artin-Rees; Ronkin function; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers and an introduction. In Paper I we calculate the second order derivatives of the Ronkin function of an affine polynomial in three variables. This gives an expression for the real Monge-Ampére measure associated to the hyperplane amoeba. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amoebas, Discriminants, and Hypergeometric Functions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University

    Author : Lisa Nilsson; Mikael Passare; Maurice Rojas; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amoeba; coamoeba; discriminant; hypergeometric functions; Mellin transform; MATHEMATICS Algebra; geometry and mathematical analysis; MATEMATIK Algebra; geometri och analys; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of six chapters.In Chapter 1 we give some historical background to the topic of the thesis together with the fundamental definitions and results that the thesis is based on.In Chapter 2 we study Mellin transforms of rational functions and investigate their analytic continuations.

  4. 4. Tropical aspects of real polynomials and hypergeometric functions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics

    Author : Jens Forsgård; Boris Shapiro; Grigory Mikhalkin; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Amoeba; Tropical Geometry; Hypergeometric function; Geometry of zeros; Discriminant; matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : The present thesis has three main topics: geometry of coamoebas, hypergeometric functions, and geometry of zeros.First, we study the coamoeba of a Laurent polynomial f in n complex variables. We define a simpler object, which we call the lopsided coamoeba, and associate to the lopsided coamoeba an order map. READ MORE

  5. 5. A small amoeba at the crossroads of the big RNAi world MicroRNA biogenesis and Argonaute function in Dictyostelium discoideum

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zhen Liao; Fredrik Söderbom; Gerhart E. H. Wagner; Christina Dixelius; Kriton Kalantidis; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; RNAi; microRNA; Argonaute protein; miRNA biogenesis; Dictyostelium discoideum; social amoeba; Dicer; development; growth; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Small non-coding RNA (ncRNA) mediated gene silencing, known as RNAi, is a key regulatory mechanism of gene expression in eukaryotes. MicroRNAs (miRNA), one major type of small ncRNAs, are about 21nt long and bound by Argonaute proteins. READ MORE
