Classification of 8-dimensional rank two commutative semifields [article]

Michel Lavrauw, Morgan Rodgers
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We classify the rank two commutative semifields which are 8-dimensional over their center F_q. This is done using computational methods utilizing the connection to linear sets in PG(2,q^4).  ...  The implications of these results are detailed for other geometric structures such as semifield flocks, ovoids of parabolic quadrics, and eggs.  ...  F q -linear set in C PG(2, q n ) contains a dual F q -subline on an internal point w.r.t.  ...

On minimum size blocking sets of the outer tangents to a hyperbolic quadric in PG(3,q)

Bart De Bruyn, Binod Kumar Sahoo
2019 Finite Fields and Their Applications  
Let Q + (3, q) be a hyperbolic quadric in PG(3, q) and T 1 be the set of all lines of PG(3, q) meeting Q + (3, q) in singletons (the so-called outer tangents).  ...  If k is the minimum size of a T 1 -blocking set in PG(3, q), then we prove that k ≥ q 2 − 1.  ...  Sciences in March-April 2017.  ...

Hyperovals on H(3,q2)

Antonio Cossidente
2011 Journal of combinatorial theory. Series A  
A construction of an irreducible 2-ovoid of H(3, 25) and some results on packings of the Hermitian curve are given.  ...  Infinite families of hyperovals of the generalized quadrangle H(3, q 2 ) are constructed. Some sporadic examples are also presented.  ...  Replace these points with those in the intersection of H(3, q 2 ) with the polar line of . The resulting set contains no conjugate pairs of points and has the same size as O. Hence it is an ovoid.  ...

Multiple recent sex chromosome fusions in Drosophila virilis associated with elevated satellite DNA abundance [article]

Jullien M Flynn, Kevin B Hu, Andrew G. Clark
2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
We find that the centromere-to-centromere fusions resulted in up to a 21% nondisjunction rate between the X and Y chromosomes in males, adding a fitness cost.  ...  This was further supported by a significant decrease in DNA breakage in an otherwise genetically identical substrain that lost the chromosome fusion and several megabases of satellite DNA.  ...  We next set up a two-464 generation crossing scheme ( Figure 1A) .  ...

A growing number of such tumors are characterized by prominent expression of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (HER3) on the cell surface.  ...  These have improved therapeutic efficacy and safety compared to traditional treatment modalities but resistance arises in the majority of clinical cases.  ...  The minced tissue and media were incubated for 16 h in a table-top shaker at 37°C and 210 RPM.
