peer-reviewed; The Special K Challenge is a partial meal replacement plan whereby two main meals are substituted with a fixed portion of Kellogg‟s Special K and semi-skimmed milk for two weeks. It is designed to reduce energy intake sufficient to reduce body mass and waist circumference in order to encourage long term body mass reduction. The present study aimed to evaluate the effects of the Special K Challenge on body composition and biomarkers of fat metabolism in healthy adults. Twenty four subjects (12 men and 12 women) with a mean age of 34.7 (11.7) and mean body mass index of 28.6 (2.9)kg/m2 were recruited via email from the University of Limerick campus. Dietary intake and body composition was measured over a two week period to establish a basal level (BASAL) prior to the two week Special K Challenge (DIET). Dietary intake was assessed by interview and dietary recall using food diaries. Body composition was measured using bioelectrical impedance (BIA) and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Blood serum and plasma were analysed for total, LDL and HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, insulin, leptin and adiponectin. The Special K Challenge induced a mean energy deficit of 673 (360)kcal (p < 0.001). The macronutrient contribution to total energy intake was favourably improved closer to the recommended daily intake. Total body mass was reduced by a mean of 1.7 (1.4)kg (p < 0.001). Fat and fat free mass were reduced by 0.7 (0.8)kg (p < 0.001) and 0.9 (1.0)kg (p < 0.05) respectively. Abdominal fat mass as represented by the L1-L4 region of interest and waist circumference was reduced by 0.17(0.15)kg and -1.9(1.7)cm respectively (p < 0.001). No statistically significant effect on total...

The US military has proven its strengths many times over through its ability to dominate opponents on the conventional battlefield. However, when it comes to irregular wars and insurgent conflicts, which are defined by enemies who conduct war from the shadows and refuse to meet on the open field, finding success has been far more difficult. The nature and dynamics of these unconventional wars are dramatically different from the conventional warfare realm, and require innovative approaches and rethinking of many long held conceptions of waging war. Conducting unconventional warfare has been the core mission of US Army Special Forces (USSF) since they were founded in 1952. Throughout a relatively short history, USSF have shown a broad utility in conducting operations with indigenous military, paramilitary, and civilian personnel in "irregular wars" and low intensity conflicts (LICs), and thus Special Forces have been widely regarded as the preeminent experts in this particular field of warfare. Now more than ever, the capabilities of Special Forces are invaluable in supporting US national security strategy, continuing the Global War on Terror (GWOT), and supporting efforts to transform military capabilities for irregular warfare and unconventional conflicts. USSF are now faced with a difficult challenge: high demand and operations tempo require that USSF must find new ways to more effectively and efficiently employ their skills in unconventional environments. In order to enhance the capabilities of USSF in conducting unconventional warfare and counterinsurgency...

CHDS State/Local; Army Special Forces units are trained to conduct sensitive special operations including unconventional warfare, counterterrorism, direct action and strategic reconnaissance missions. Many of the unique skills and capabilities found in Special Forces units have potential applications to homeland security operations. Despite an absence of doctrine for domestic operations, Special Forces --especially Army National Guard Special Forces -- are likely to be employed in future homeland security operations. This thesis examines potential homeland security missions for Special Forces. Additionally, given the unique first-responder role of the National Guard, this thesis analyzes potential policy changes needed to enhance National Guard Special Forces contributions to homeland security. The absence of doctrine for domestic Special Forces operations potentially adversely impacts Army National Guard Special Forces. Given the unique constitutionally mandated nature of the National Guard, state governors have the ability to activate their forces, including Army National Guard Special Forces, for homeland security operations. The absence of doctrine for domestic Special Forces operations can potentially lead to the misuse, overuse or illegal use of these strategic assets. Enhancing the National Guard's capacity to correctly use Special Forces in domestic operations will enhance the country's overall security posture.; General Counsel...

We give an intrinsic definition of (affine very) special real manifolds and realise any such manifold $M$ as a domain in affine space equipped with a metric which is the Hessian of a cubic polynomial. We prove that the tangent bundle $N=TM$ carries a canonical structure of (affine) special K\"ahler manifold. This gives an intrinsic description of the $r$-map as the map $M\mapsto N=TM$. On the physics side, this map corresponds to the dimensional reduction of rigid vector multiplets from 5 to 4 space-time dimensions. We generalise this construction to the case when $M$ is any Hessian manifold.

We show how affine and projective special K\"ahler manifolds emerge from the structure of quantization. We quantize them and construct natural (wavefunction) representations for the corresponding coherent states. These in turn are shown to satisfy the precise generalizations of the BCOV holomorphic anomaly equation (hep-th/9309140), thus extending the work in hep-th/9306122. As a byproduct of the analysis we construct the explicit general solution to the holomorphic anomaly equation.; Comment: 52 pages

Let $F/K$ be an abelian extension of number fields with $F$ either CM or totally real and $K$ totally real. If $F$ is CM and the Brumer-Stark conjecture holds for $F/K$, we construct a family of $G(F/K)$--equivariant Hecke characters for $F$ with infinite type equal to a special value of certain $G(F/K)$--equivariant $L$-functions. Using results of Greither-Popescu on the Brumer-Stark conjecture we construct $l$-adic imprimitive versions of these characters, for primes $l> 2$. Further, the special values of these $l$-adic Hecke characters are used to construct $G(F/K)$-equivariant Stickelberger-splitting maps in the $l$-primary Quillen localization sequence for $F$, extending the results obtained in 1990 by Banaszak for $K = \Bbb Q$. We also apply the Stickelberger-splitting maps to construct special elements in the $l$-primary piece $K_{2n}(F)_l$ of $K_{2n}(F)$ and analyze the Galois module structure of the group $D(n)_l$ of divisible elements in $K_{2n}(F)_l$, for all $n>0$. If $n$ is odd and coprime to $l$ and $F = K$ is a fairly general totally real number field, we study the cyclicity of $D(n)_l$ in relation to the classical conjecture of Iwasawa on class groups of cyclotomic fields and its potential generalization to a wider class of number fields.

A special K\"ahler-Ricci potential on a K\"ahler manifold is any nonconstant $C^\infty$ function $\tau$ such that $J(\nabla\tau)$ is a Killing vector field and, at every point with $d\tau\ne 0$, all nonzero tangent vectors orthogonal to $\nabla\tau$ and $J(\nabla\tau)$ are eigenvectors of both $\nabla d\tau$ and the Ricci tensor. For instance, this is always the case if $\tau$ is a nonconstant $C^\infty$ function on a K\"ahler manifold $(M,g)$ of complex dimension $m>2$ and the metric $\tilde g=g/\tau^2$, defined wherever $\tau\ne 0$, is Einstein. (When such $\tau$ exists, $(M,g)$ may be called {\it almost-everywhere conformally Einstein}.) We provide a complete classification of compact K\"ahler manifolds with special K\"ahler-Ricci potentials and use it to prove a structure theorem for compact K\"ahler manifolds of any complex dimension $m>2$ which are almost-everywhere conformally Einstein.; Comment: 45 pages, AMSTeX, submitted to Journal f\"ur die reine und angewandte Mathematik

We introduce the notion of a special complex manifold: a complex manifold (M,J) with a flat torsionfree connection \nabla such that (\nabla J) is symmetric. A special symplectic manifold is then defined as a special complex manifold together with a \nabla-parallel symplectic form \omega . This generalises Freed's definition of (affine) special K\"ahler manifolds. We also define projective versions of all these geometries. Our main result is an extrinsic realisation of all simply connected (affine or projective) special complex, symplectic and K\"ahler manifolds. We prove that the above three types of special geometry are completely solvable, in the sense that they are locally defined by free holomorphic data. In fact, any special complex manifold is locally realised as the image of a holomorphic 1-form \alpha : C^n \to T^* C^n. Such a realisation induces a canonical \nabla-parallel symplectic structure on M and any special symplectic manifold is locally obtained this way. Special K\"ahler manifolds are realised as complex Lagrangian submanifolds and correspond to closed forms \alpha. Finally, we discuss the natural geometric structures on the cotangent bundle of a special symplectic manifold, which generalise the hyper-K\"ahler structure on the cotangent bundle of a special K\"ahler manifold.; Comment: 24 pages...

We prove that there are just two types of isolated singularities of special K\"ahler metrics in real dimension two provided the associated holomorphic cubic form does not have essential singularities. We also construct examples of such metrics.

Steady state properties of hard objects with exclusion interaction and a driven motion along a one-dimensional periodic lattice are investigated. The process is a generalization of the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) to particles of length k, and is called the k-ASEP. Here, we analyze both static and dynamic properties of the k-ASEP. Density correlations are found to display interesting features, such as pronounced oscillations in both space and time, as a consequence of the extended length of the particles. At long times, the density autocorrelation decays exponentially in time, except at a special k-dependent density when it decays as a power law. In the limit of large k at a finite density of occupied sites, the appropriately scaled system reduces to a nonequilibrium generalization of the Tonks gas describing the motion of hard rods along a continuous line. This allows us to obtain in a simple way the known two-particle distribution for the Tonks gas. For large but finite k, we also obtain the leading-order correction to the Tonks result.; Comment: 11 pages, 9 figures. Version 2: restructuring with small changes in content, published version

On a manifold of dimension at least six, let $(g,\tau)$ be a pair consisting of a K\"ahler metric g which is locally K\"ahler irreducible, and a nonconstant smooth function $\tau$. Off the zero set of $\tau$, if the metric $\hat{g}=g/\tau^2$ is a gradient Ricci soliton which has soliton function $1/\tau$, we show that $\hat{g}$ is K\"ahler with respect to another complex structure, and locally of a type first described by Koiso. Moreover, $\tau$ is a special K\"ahler-Ricci potential, a notion defined in earlier works of Derdzinski and Maschler. The result extends to dimension four with additional assumptions. We also discuss a Ricci-Hessian equation, which is a generalization of the soliton equation, and observe that the set of pairs $(g,\tau)$ satisfying a Ricci-Hessian equation is invariant, in a suitable sense, under the map $(g,\tau)\to (\hat{g},1/\tau)$.; Comment: 13 pages, corrected Report-no

In this paper we find automorphic functions of coset manifolds with special K\"ahler geometry. We use \zeta-functions to regularize an infinite product over integers which belong to a duality-invariant lattice, this product is known to produce duality-invariant functions. In turn these functions correspond to Eisenstein series which can be understood as string theory amplitudes that receive contributions from BPS states. The Ansatz is constructed using the coset manifold SU(1,n)\over SU(n) \times U(1) as an example but it can be generalized. Automorphic functions play an important role in the calculation of threshold corrections to gauge coupling and other stringy phenomena. We also find some connections between the theory of Abelian varieties and moduli spaces of Calabi-Yau manifolds; Comment: LaTeX2e, 31 Pages

We verify a special case of a conjecture of G. Carlsson that describes the $\l$-adic $K$-theory of a field $F$ of characteristic prime to $\l$ in terms of the representation theory of the absolute Galois group $G_F$. This conjecture is known to hold in two cases; in this article we examine the second case, in which the field in question is the field of Laurent series over a finite field $\FF_{p}((x))$.; Comment: Added acknowledgments

À margem da agenda política do Estado, a educação especial tradicionalmente se organizou como atendimento educacional especializado substitutivo ao ensino comum, em classes e escolas especiais. Nas últimas décadas, o Brasil, em consonância com movimentos internacionais, estabeleceu uma série de leis, políticas e programas para combater as desigualdades e a exclusão escolar. Nesse movimento, sujeitos com transtornos globais do desenvolvimento (TGD), tradicionalmente apartados dos processos de escolarização, são recebidos nas salas de aula e no velho pátio da escola. Quais racionalidades sustentam as formas de nomear e identificar esses alunos? Como compreender as relações entre os diagnósticos, as políticas e a inscrição das (im)possibilidades escolares? Em que medida as políticas inclusivas de educação especial desconstroem sentidos que relacionam os TGD à ineducabilidade, ou, ainda, a diferença à anormalidade e à inferioridade? O presente ensaio discute a implementação das diretrizes inclusivas considerando o texto político e seus efeitos no contexto da prática. A hermenêutica filosófica oferece os tempos e os focos da leitura. O argumento é tecido com e a partir das falas de um aluno e de professores...
