On blind searches for noise dominated signals: a loosely coherent approach
Random mating for a population of M diploid individuals, along with Mendel’s laws for the offspring of two diploid individuals, can be statistically approximated by random sampling with replacement of N = 2M haploid individuals to form the next generation.
A time-dependent Poisson random field model for polymorphism within and between two related biological species
Note however that these authors employed the Balmer absorption line indices as age indicators and it is well known that this method can give very uncertain absolute ages, even larger than the age of the Universe (Vazdekis et al. 2001; Schiavon et al. 2002; Mendel, Proctor, & Forbes 2007; Poole et al. 2010).

The first step towards the science of genetics was made by Darwin’s contemporary Mendel who discovered that parental traits do not blend in their offspring, but are preserved as distinct units under the laws of inheritance.

Boundary layer physics will be crucial (Kinney & Mendell, 2003), as will the elastic properties at the base of the crust (Pethick & Potekhin, 1998).
Neutron star oscillations and QPOs during magnetar flares
It was Lindblom & Mendell (2000) who first examined the damping effects of mutual friction in the core on the r-mode instability, and concluded that the mutual friction could not be strong enough to damp out the instability in most of the parameter domains which we are interested in.
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
Lindblom & Mendell (2000) considered the former family of the r-modes, which are less strongly affected by the mutual friction than the latter.
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
We also assume perfect charge neutrality between the protons and electrons because the plasma frequency is much higher than the oscillation frequencies considered in this paper (see, e.g., Mendell 1991a).
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
The basic hydrodynamic equations employed in this paper for the neutron and proton superfluids in rotating neutron stars are essentially the same as those given in Mendell (1991a) and Lindblom & Mendell (1994).
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
Since we have assumed perfect charge neutrality between the electrons and protons, we consider scattering between the normal electrons and vortices of the neutron superfluid (Mendell 1991b, see also Alpar etal 1984).
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
Following Lindblom & Mendell (2000), we employ a polytropic model of index N = 1 with the mass M = 1.4M⊙ and the radius R = 12.57km as a background model for modal analysis.
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
Figure 12 illustrates the dependence of −τ 0 M F on the entrainment parameter η for the l ′ = m = 2 ro -mode, and we find that −τ 0 M F has prominent and deep minimums at η ≈ 0.230 and 0.484., which is consistent with the result by Lindblom & Mendell (2000).
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
These minor dips were not found by Lindblom & Mendell (2000).
R-modes of neutron stars with the superfluid core
We guess that the r-modes calculated by Lindblom & Mendell (2000) are less strongly affected by inertial modes associated with large l0 − |m| having short radial wavelengths since they ignored terms higher than Ω4 in their perturbative method.
