  • Das, Saurya; Shankaranarayanan, S.; Sur, Sourav (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of PortsmouthSaha Institute of Nuclear Physics, 2016-01-18)
    In this talk, we focus on the corrections to Bekenstein-Hawking entropy by associating it with the entanglement between degrees of freedom inside and outside the horizon. Using numerical techniques, we show that the ...
  • Das, Saurya; Shankaranarayanan, S. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of LethbridgeMax-Planck-Institut für Gravitationphysik, 2015-12-16)
    We review aspects of black hole thermodynamics, and show how entanglement of a quantum field between the inside and outside of a horizon can account for the areaproportionality of black hole entropy, provided the field ...
  • Braunstein, Samuel L.; Das, Saurya; Shankaranarayanan, S. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of YorkUniversity of LethbridgeIndian Institute of Science Education and Research, 2015-12-15)
    It has long been conjectured that the entropy of quantum fields across boundaries scales as the boundary area. This conjecture has not been easy to test in spacetime dimensions greater than four because of divergences ...
  • Hastings, Erica; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2003Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2003)
    This thesis focuses on the effects of pharmacological and environmental interventions following perinatal prefrontal cortex lesions. Rats given postnatal day 3 medial prefrontal cortex lesions were provided with one of the ...
  • Pasternak, Graham M. (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Psychology, c2011Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 2011)
    Narrow riparian woodlands along non-perennial streams have made it possible for vervet monkeys to penetrate the semi-arid karoo ecosystem of South Africa, while artificial water points have more recently allowed these ...
  • Sharpe, Doreen Ann (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2015-04)
    In recent years there has been a push toward getting children outside and learning more about nature. At the elementary school in which I teach, Lindsay Park Elementary School, in Kimberley, British Columbia, using nature ...
  • McCluskie, Meg L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2005)
    Scientific literature indicates potential for using plant extracts to control arthropod pests thereby decreasing the amount of synthetic chemicals introduced into the ecosystem. The research presented below tested several ...
  • Hockley, Clair (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of EducationEducation, 2013-12)
    Linking theory and practice stands as a foundational and recurring theme in educational discourse. This study contributes to the discussion through an examination of the ideas of Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau’s ideas on ...
  • Skotarek, Sara L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Biological Sciences, 2008)
    The cestode Anoplocephala perfoliata is known to cause fatal colic in horses. The epidemiology of the cestode has rarely been evaluated in Canada. I detected A. perfoliata eggs in 4-18% of over 1000 faecal samples collected ...
