Re-collection of Dermea prunus in China, with a description of D. chinensis sp. nov.

Dermea was protected against its synonym, Foveostroma, due to its well-circumscribed generic concept and more frequent use. We describe and illustrate Dermea chinensis sp. nov. based on its morphological characteristics and a molecular analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and large subunit (LSU) sequence data. Dermea chinensis is isolated from Betula albosinensis...

High diversity of Diaporthe species associated with dieback diseases in China, with twelve new species described

Diaporthe species have often been reported as important plant pathogens, saprobes and endophytes on a wide range of plant hosts. Although several Diaporthe species have been recorded in China, little is known about species able to infect forest trees. Therefore, extensive surveys were recently conducted in Beijing, Heilongjiang, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Shaanxi and Zhejiang Provinces...

Earth’s youngest banded iron formation implies ferruginous conditions in the Early Cambrian ocean

It has been proposed that anoxic and iron-rich (ferruginous) marine conditions were common through most of Earth history. This view represents a major shift in our understanding of the evolution of marine chemistry. However, thus far, evidence for ferruginous conditions comes predominantly from Fe-speciation data. Given debate over these records, new evidence for Fe-rich marine...

Regularized gradient-projection methods for finding the minimum-norm solution of the constrained convex minimization problem

Let H be a real Hilbert space and C be a nonempty closed convex subset of H. Assume that g is a real-valued convex function and the gradient ∇g is 1 L -ism with L > 0 . Let 0 < λ < 2 L + 2 , 0 < β n < 1 . We prove that the sequence { x n } generated by the iterative algorithm x n + 1 = P C ( I − λ ( ∇ g + β n I ) ) x n , ∀ n ≥ 0 converges strongly to q ∈ U , where q = P U ( 0...

The effect of subpressure on the bond strength of resin to zirconia ceramic

Objective This study was conducted to investigate the effect of subpressure on the bond strength of resin to zirconia ceramic. The subpressure would create a pressure gradient which could clean out the bubbles in the adhesives or bonding interface. Methods Twenty-eight pre-sintered zirconia discs were fabricated. Half of them were polished (group P, n = 14), and the rest were...

Improvement of Total Etching Dentin Bonding with Subpressure

This study aimed to investigate the effects of subpressure on the bond properties of total-etching adhesive to dentin. Thirty-six caries-free premolars were sectioned parallel to the occlusal plane and randomly divided into four groups (n = 9): a control group (C, no treatment) and three subpressure groups, which were treated under 0.8, 0.6 or 0.4 bar after applying adhesives...

A regularization algorithm for a common solution of generalized equilibrium problem, fixed point problem and the zero points of the sum of two operators

For finding a common solution of generalized equilibrium problem, fixed point problem and the zero points of the sum of two operators, a regularization algorithm is established in the framework of real Hilbert spaces. And the strong convergence theorem is obtained under certain assumptions. The main results presented in this paper are useful in nonlinear analysis and optimization...

Strong convergence of a modified proximal algorithm for solving the lasso

As is well known the proximal iterative method can be used to solve the lasso of Tibshirani (J. R. Stat. Soc., Ser. B 58:267-288, 1996). In this paper, we first propose a modified proximal iterative method based on the viscosity approximation method to obtain strong convergence, then we apply this method to solve the lasso.

Integrating a Numerical Taxonomic Method and Molecular Phylogeny for Species Delimitation of Melampsora Species (Melampsoraceae, Pucciniales) on Willows in China

The species in genus Melampsora are the causal agents of leaf rust diseases on willows in natural habitats and plantations. However, the classification and recognition of species diversity are challenging because morphological characteristics are scant and morphological variation in Melampsora on willows has not been thoroughly evaluated. Thus, the taxonomy of Melampsora species...

Oxygen carrying capacity of salvaged blood in patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting surgery: a prospective observational study

Background Intraoperative cell salvage (ICS), hereby referred to ‘mechanical red cell salvage’, has been widely used and proven to be an effective way to reduce or avoid the need for allogeneic red blood cells (RBCs)transfusion and its associated complications in surgeries involving major blood loss. However, little is known about the influence of this technique on the functional...

General iterative scheme based on the regularization for solving a constrained convex minimization problem

It is well known that the regularization method plays an important role in solving a constrained convex minimization problem. In this article, we introduce implicit and explicit iterative schemes based on the regularization for solving a constrained convex minimization problem. We establish results on the strong convergence of the sequences generated by the proposed schemes to a...
