The Relationship between Sympatric Defended Species Depends upon Predators' Discriminatory Behaviour
Christina G. Halpin, John Skelhorn, Candy Rowe
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0044895
Abstract: Toxic prey species living in the same environment have long been thought to mutually benefit from having the same warning signal by sharing the education of na?ve predators. In contrast, ‘saturation theory’ predicts that predators are physiologically limited by the amount of toxin that they can eat in a given time period. Therefore, sympatric species that contain the same toxin should mutually benefit from reduced predation even when they are visually distinct, reducing the benefits to visual mimicry. For the first time, we found that mutualism can occur between unequally defended prey that are visually distinct, although the benefits to each prey type depends on the predators' abilities and/or motivation to visually discriminate between them. Furthermore, we found that this variability in predatory behaviour had a significant impact on the benefits of mimicry for unequally defended prey. Our results demonstrate that variability in the foraging decisions of predators can have a significant effect on the benefits of shared toxicity and visual mimicry between sympatric species, and highlights the need to consider how predators exert selection pressures on models and mimics over their entire lifetimes.
An Integrative Framework for Customizations on Satisfaction: The Case of an Online Jewelry Business in China  [PDF]
Vincent Cho, Candy Lau
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2014.72013

Upon the technological advancement of production flexibility, supply chain agility, and customer behavioral tracking, many online businesses now develop their customization strategies. In this regard, this study proposes an integrative framework for customization of product information, transaction handling, product attribute, and sales’ service. We are interested in how these customizations affect customer satisfaction. From our web-based survey on a renowned online jewelry company in China, we collected 1383 responses from its customer database. Our findings showed that information, product and sales’ service customizations have significant influence on customer satisfaction. Moreover, ordinary members as compared with VIP members feel more satisfied once they receive customized services.

Global existence for an L^2 critical Nonlinear Dirac equation in one dimension
Timothy Candy
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: We prove global existence from $L^2$ initial data for a nonlinear Dirac equation known as the Thirring model. Local existence in $H^s$ for $s>0$, and global existence for $s>1/2$, has recently been proven by Selberg and Tesfahun by using $X^{s, b}$ spaces together with a type of null form estimate. In contrast, motivated by the recent work of Machihara, Nakanishi, and Tsugawa, we first prove local existence in $L^2$ by using null coordinates, where the time of existence depends on the profile of the initial data. To extend this to a global existence result we need to rule out concentration of $L^2$ norm, or charge, at a point. This is done by decomposing the solution into an approximately linear component and a component with improved integrability. We then prove global existence for all $s>0$.
Bilinear Estimates and Applications to Global Well-posedness for the Dirac-Klein-Gordon Equation on R^{1+1}
Timothy Candy
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: We prove new bilinear estimates for the X^{s, b}_\pm(R^2) spaces which are optimal up to endpoints. These estimates are often used in the theory of nonlinear Dirac equations on R^{1+1}. The proof of the bilinear estimates follows from a dyadic decomposition in the spirit of Tao [21] and D'Ancona, Foschi, and Selberg [11]. As an application, by using the I-method of Colliander, Keel, Staffilani, Takaoka, and Tao, we extend the work of Tesfahun [23] on global existence below the charge class for the Dirac-Klein- Gordon equation on R^{1+1}.

Early Childhood Research & Practice , 2003,
Abstract: Four classes of 5- and 6-year-old children in a midwestern public school chose to study llamas. This article discusses how the project evolved, describes the three phases of the project, and provides teachers' reflections on the project. Photos taken during the project are included.
Local well-posedness for the space-time Monopole equation in Lorenz gauge
Nikolaos Bournaveas,Timothy Candy
Mathematics , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s00030-011-0118-1
Abstract: It is known from the work of Czubak that the space-time Monopole equation is locally well-posed in the Coulomb gauge for small initial data in $H^s(\mathbb{R}^2)$ for $s>1/4$. Here we prove local well-posedness for arbitrary initial data in $H^s(\mathbb{R^2})$ with $s>1/4$ in the Lorenz gauge.
