    • Five theories of reasoning: Interconnections and applications to mathematics 

      Pease, Alison; Aberdein, Andrew (2011)
      The last century has seen many disciplines place a greater prior-ity on understanding how people reason in a particular domain, and several illuminating theories of informal logic and argumentation have been devel-oped. ...
    • Fixed point theorems for ws-compact mappings in Banach spaces 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O'Regan, Donal; Taoudi, Mohamed-Aziz (2010-11-24)
      We present new fixed point theorems for ws-compact operators. Our fixed point results are obtained under Sadovskii, Leray-Schauder, Rothe, Altman, Petryshyn, and Furi-Pera type conditions. An example is given to show the ...
    • Fixed point theory for Mönch-type maps defined on closed subsets of Fréchet spaces: the projective limit approach 

      Agarwal, Ravi P.; O'Regan, Donal; Dshalalow, Jewgeni H. (2005)
      New Leray-Schauder alternatives are presented for Mönch-type maps defined between Fréchet spaces. The proof relies on viewing a Fréchet space as the projective limit of a sequence of Banach spaces.
    • A flare in the jet of pictor A 

      Marshall, Herman L.; Hardcastle, Martin J.; Birkinshaw, Mark; Croston, Judith H.; Evans, Daniel A.; Landt, Hermine; Lenc, Emil; Massaro, Francesco; Perlman, Eric S.; Schwartz, Daniel A. (2010-04-13)
      A Chandra X-ray imaging observation of the jet in Pictor A showed a feature that appears to be a flare that faded between 2000 and 2002. The feature was not detected in a follow-up observation in 2009. The jet itself is ...
