    Fusion dimensions are integer-valued quantities equal to the dimensions of the spaces of conformal blocks, which describe the interactions of a conformal field theory (CFT). Our focus was on the Wess-Zumino-Witten models, ...
  • Driscoll, Ira; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2005)
    The purpose of the current thesis was twofold: (1) to examine various factors that might be contributing to age-related learning and memory deficits specifically related to the hippocampus, and (2) to validate our rat model ...
  • Ren, Xiaomeng; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2007)
    Agricultural vulnerability is generally referred to as the degree to which agricultural systems are likely to experience harm due to a stress. In this study, an existing analytical method to quantify vulnerability was ...
