    • Special issue on algebra and computational algebraic geometry 

      Elezi, Artur; Shaska, Tony (Albanian J. Math., 2007-12)
      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 

      Previato, Emma; Shaska, Tony; Wijesiri, Sujeeva (Albanian J. Math., 2007-12-15)
      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 ...
    • Kalkulus I 

      Shaska, Tanush (AulonaPress, 2017-12-03)
    • Rational points in the moduli space of genus two 

      Shaska, Tony; Beshaj, Lubjana; Hidalgo, Ruben; Kruk, Serge; Malmendier, Andreas; Quispe, Saul (Contemporary Mathematics, 2018)
      We build a database of genus 2 curves defined over the field of rationals.
    • Some open problems in computational algebraic geometry. 

      Shaska, Tony (Albanian J. Math., 2007-12-15)
      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 

      Shaska, Tony (Journal of Symbolic Computation, 2001-05)
      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 

      Hidalgo, Ruben; Quispe, Saul; Shaska, Tony (eprint arXiv:1609.09576, 2016-11-01)
      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 AG-codes based on C_{a,b} curves 

      Shaska, Tony; Wang, Quang (2006-01-15)
      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 

      Rodriguez, Julia E. (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 

      Rodriguez, Julia E. (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 

      Beshaj, Lubjana; Elezi, Artur; Shaska, Tony (2017-11-02)
      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 ...
    • Self-inversive polynomials, curves, and codes 

      Shaska, Tony; Joyner, David (American Mathematical Society, 2016-03-05)
      We study connections between self-inversive and self-reciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally self-dual codes
    • Teacher Characteristics and Effective Implementation of the Accelerated Reader program, as reported by Teachers of African American students 

      Johnson, Debra
      How are teacher characteristics related to teaching practices in reading instruction? Melton, Smothers, Anderson, Fulton, Replogue, & Thomas (2004) maintained teachers are the most powerful dynamic in the classroom. African ...
    • Using Engagement with Instructor Feedback to Nurture First-Year Writing Students’ Self-Efficacy 

      Gabrion, Laura
      Many students enter college with low self-perceptions about their writing skills. Research indicates that first-year writing instructors typically rely on the semi-self-regulated steps of the writing process to help students ...
    • THE IMPACT OF FACE-TO-FACE VERSUS ONLINE PEER REVIEW ON STUDENTS' WRITING ACHIEVEMENT 

      Hine, Lisa
      This study examines the impact of type of peer review first year college students participated in, either face-to-face (F2F) or online (OL) and its effect on students' writing achievement. Using a two-way repeated measures ...
