STEM Chalk Talks: Scientific Information Resource Training for All Librarians
(2018)To serve diverse patron needs, academic librarians need to be familiar with essential information resources in all disciplines. But many librarians, especially those without a STEM background, have little familiarity or ... 
Nightwatch: Sleep disruption of caregivers of children with asthma in Detroit
(201310)Caregiving for ill loved ones can impact sleep quality and quantity. Insufficient sleep has been associated with worse physical and mental health outcomes, as well as an impact on work performance and ability to accomplish ... 
Building Community Capacity to Advocate for Policy Change: An Outcome Evaluation of the Neighborhoods Working in Partnership Project in Detroit
(201309)This article presents results of the outcome evaluation of Neighborhoods Working in Partnership (NWP), a communitybased participatory research project of the Detroit Community–Academic Urban Research Center, designed to ... 
STEM Chalk Talks (Reference Group Meetings Fall 2017)
(2017)These presentations were given during the Fall 2017 Reference Group meetings. The accompanying article is under review in Science & Technology Libraries. 
A latent transition analysis of team conflict profiles
(Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, 201804)Although team conflict is often described as being dynamic in nature, little research has investigated change in conflict over time. Taking a teamcentered perspective and using latent transition analysis, this study ... 
A Massively Flipped ClassDesigning and implementing active learning information literacy instruction for a large enrollment course
(2016)Purpose This paper describes and analyzes how oneshot library instruction sessions for large lecture classes can effectively be “flipped” and can incorporate active learning activities as part of both the online and the ... 
Special issue on algebra and computational algebraic geometry
(Albanian J. Math., 200712)Algebraic geometry is one of the main branches of modern mathematics with roots from classical Italian geometers. Its modern flavor started with Grothendieck and continued with many illustrious algebraic geometers of the ... 
Thetanulls of cyclic curves of small genus
(Albanian J. Math., 20071215)We study relations among the classical thetanulls of cyclic curves, namely curves $\X$ (of genus $g(\X )>1$ ) with an automorphism $\s$ such that $\s$ generates a normal subgroup of the group $G$ of automorphisms, and $g ...

Rational points in the moduli space of genus two
(Contemporary Mathematics, 2018)We build a database of genus 2 curves defined over the field of rationals. 
Some open problems in computational algebraic geometry.
(Albanian J. Math., 20071215)The development of computational techniques in the last decade has made possible to attack some classical problems of algebraic geometry from a computational viewpoint. In this survey, we briefly describe some open ... 
Curves of genus 2 with (n, n)decomposable Jacobians
(Journal of Symbolic Computation, 200105)Let C be a curve of genus 2 and ψ1: C − → E 1 a map of degree n, from C to an elliptic curveE1 , both curves defined over C. This map induces a degree n map φ1:P1 − → P 1 which we call a Frey–Kani covering. We determine ... 
On generalized superelliptic Riemann surfaces
(eprint arXiv:1609.09576, 20161101)A closed Riemann surface X, of genus g ≥ 2, is called a generalized superelliptic curve of level n ≥ 2 if it admits an order n conformal automorphism τ so that X/hτihas genus zero and τ is central in Aut(X); the cyclic ... 
On the automorphism groups of some AGcodes based on C_{a,b} curves
(20060115)We study Ca,b curves and their applications to coding theory. Recently, Joyner and Ksir have suggested a decoding algorithm based on the automorphisms of the code. We show how Ca,b curves can be used to construct MDS ... 
Awareness and Attitudes about Open Access Publishing: A Glance at Generational Differences
(2014)INTRODUCTION OA publishing is now solidly established as a publishing model. This study examines current faculty members understanding of and perceptions of OA publishing, focusing on demographic data that divide faculty ... 
Scholarly Communications Competencies: Open Access Training for Librarians
(2015)Purpose The purpose of this article is to describe one example of an academic library using existing internal expertise and targeted events to provide training for liaison librarians in support of new scholarly communication ... 
Isogenous elliptic subcovers of genus two curves
(20171102)We prove that for $N=2,3, 5, 7$ there are only finitely many genus two curves $\X$ (up to isomorphism) defined over $\Q$ with $(2, 2)$split Jacobian and $\Aut (\X)\iso V_4$, such that their elliptic subcovers are ... 
Selfinversive polynomials, curves, and codes
(American Mathematical Society, 20160305)We study connections between selfinversive and selfreciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally selfdual codes 
Mësimdhënia e matematikës nëpërmjet problemeve klasike
(Albanian J. Math., 20161203)In this paper we discuss how teaching of mathematics for middle school and high school students can be improved dramatically when motivation of concepts and ideas is done through the classical problems and the history of ...
