Mathematical conversations: selections from The mathematical by Robin J. Wilson, Jeremy Gray

By Robin J. Wilson, Jeremy Gray

Nearly fifty articles that have been released within the Mathematical Intelligencer in the course of its first eighteen years. the choice demonstrates the big variety of appealing articles that experience seemed through the years, starting from basic curiosity articles of a old nature to lucid expositions of vital present discoveries. every one article is brought via the editors. "...The Mathematical Intelligencer publishes fashionable, well-illustrated articles, wealthy in rules and customarily brief on proofs. ...Many, yet now not all articles fall in the succeed in of the complex undergraduate arithmetic significant. ... This e-book makes a pleasant addition to any undergraduate arithmetic assortment that doesn't already game again problems with The Mathematical Intelligencer." D.V. Feldman, college of recent Hamphire, selection experiences, June 2001.

Example text

If the infection is acute (less than 3 weeks duration), and the implant is stable, debridement and retention of the implant may be feasible (Hebert et al. 1996; Zimmerli et al. 2004). Debridement consists of the excision of all infected tissue, including bone, soft tissue, and sinus tracts (Zimmerli et al. 2004). If the soft tissue around the implant is relatively undamaged, one-stage revision, where the implant is replaced during the same surgery as the removal, is possible (Hebert et al. 1996).

1995; Morfeldt et al. 1996). Later in exponential phase, RNAIII is expressed and folds into a stable but inactive regulatory molecule. After a significant lag, the secondary structure of RNAIII changes through an unknown agent, and the 5′ region of RNAIII is then able to hybridize with a complementary 5′ untranslated region of hla mRNA, thereby making the transcripts accessible for translation initiation (Morfeldt et al. 1995). Conversely, the 3′ region of RNAIII contains sequences complementary to the leader sequence of spa, and hybridization is believed to inhibit translation of Protein A.

Regulation of PIA synthesis also seems linked to the TCA cycle, as when the TCA cycle was disrupted, PIA production was decreased (Vuong et al. 2005). Changes in the cycle may be utilized by the bacterial cells to detect alterations in the environment. Temperature may also play a role, as it has been shown that both elevated and decreased temperatures can induce S. epidermidis biofilm formation (Fitzpatrick et al. 2005b). Other levels of control in S. epidermidis are accomplished through IcaR-mediated transcriptional repression (relieved by ethanol stress) and the sigB operon product σB (regulated by operon genes rsbU and rsbV).
