Canadian teachers' attitudes toward change, efficacy, and burnout during the COVID-19 pandemic
Canadian teachers (N = 1626) took part in a longitudinal, national survey conducted at two points early in the COVID-19 pandemic. Results indicated that teacher efficacy, attitudes toward change, and perceptions of ...
The metric dimension and metric independence of a graph
(The Charles Babbage Research Centre, 2001)
A vertex x of a graph G resolves two vertices u and v of G if the distance from x to u does not equal the distance from x to v. A set S of vertices of G is a resolving set for G if every two distinct vertices of G are ...
Binary Words Avoiding xxRx and Strongly Unimodal Sequences
In previous work, Currie and Rampersad showed that the growth of the number of binary words avoiding the pattern xxxR was intermediate between polynomial and exponential. We now show that the same result holds for the ...
Counting endomorphisms of crown-like orders
The authors introduce the notion of crown-like orders and introduce powerful tools for counting the endomorphisms of orders of this type.
The Aveline's Hole 9 Cranium: A Partial Solution to a Long Standing Enigma
(University of Bristol Spelaeological Society, 2012)
Aveline's Hole is both one of the best-known sites with early human skeletal material in Britain and one of the most problematic in its history. First discovered and explored at the close of the 18th century, it yielded ...
Avoiding approximate repetitions with respect to the longest common subsequence distance
(Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 2015-09-17)
Ochem, Rampersad, and Shallit gave various examples of infinite words avoiding what they called approximate repetitions. An approximate repetition is a factor of the form x x', where x and x' are close to being identical. ...
(University of Ottawa, 2009)
In this thesis, we survey the current research into self-complementary hypergraphs, and present several new results. We characterize the cycle type of the permutations on n elements with order equal to a power of 2 which ...
For each a > 2 there is an Infinite Binary Word with Critical Exponent a
(The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2008-08-31)
The critical exponent of an infinite word w is the supremum of all rational numbers α such that w contains an α-power. We resolve an open question of Krieger and Shallit by showing that for each α>2 there is an infinite ...
A family of formulas with reversal of high avoidability index
(World Scientific, 2017)
We present an infinite family of formulas with reversal whose avoidability index is bounded between 4 and 5, and we show that several members of the family have avoidability index 5. This family is particularly interesting ...
Multi-dimensional sets recognizable in all abstract numeration systems
(EDP Sciences, 2011)
We prove that the subsets of Nd that are S-recognizable for all abstract numeration systems S are exactly the 1-recognizable sets. This generalizes a result of Lecomte and Rigo in the one-dimensional setting.
