Endocrine Therapy Resistance in Breast Cancer: Mechanisms and Treatments
(Stern College for Women, 2018-01-12)
Breast cancers are dependent on estrogen—a hormone prevalent in females—which binds to the estrogen receptor. Estrogen drives excess proliferation of cells in which estrogen receptors are overexpressed, causing breast ...
Remedies to End Stage Renal Disease: The Value of Quality of Life in Judaism and Medical Treatment
(Stern College for Women, 2017-12-15)
Background and Introduction: Quality of life is highly considered by medical professionals, developers, and researchers as well as by Jewish law. However, both define quality of life differently. Judaism defines quality ...
On stability of fixed points and chaos in fractional systems.
In this paper, we propose a method to calculate asymptotically period two sinks and define the range of stability of fixed points for a variety of discrete fractional systems of the order 0<α<2 . The method is tested on ...
On the fractional Eulerian numbers and equivalence of maps with long term power-law memory (integral Volterra equations of the second kind) to Grünvald-Letnikov fractional difference (differential) equations
(Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, 2015)
In this paper, we consider a simple general form of a deterministic system with power-law memory whose state can be described by one variable and evolution by a generating function. A new value of the system's variable is ...
Universal fractional map and cascade of bifurcations type attractors
(Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, 2013-09)
We modified the way in which the Universal Map is obtained in the regular dynamics to derive the Universal α-Family of Maps depending on a single parameter α>0, which is the order of the fractional derivative in the nonlinear ...
Caputo standard α-family of maps: Fractional difference vs. fractional
(Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, 2014-06)
In this paper, the author compares behaviors of systems which can be described by fractional differential and fractional difference equations using the fractional and fractional difference Caputo standard α-Families of ...

Tears in the Biblical Narrative: Exploring the Depths of Character, Plot, and Theme Through Analysis of When and Why Biblical Characters Cry
(Stern College for Women, 2015)
Biblical narrative is brimming with channels through which we can delve into the depths of the narrative. Specifically, exploration of the emotional dimension of biblical narrative contributes to an understanding of ...
In vitro Fertilization: Ethical and Halakhic Ramifications
(Stern College for Women, 2015-04-25)
New developments in assisted reproductive technologies, specifically in vitro fertilization, that are meant to combat infertility issues have opened the floodgates for debate in both bioethics and Jewish law, or halakha. ...
Academic Cheating in Undergraduates: Examining Associated Factors
(Stern College for Women, 2017-05-30)
Academic cheating has become a major problem nationwide, with rates only continuing to increase. Therefore, factors associated with academic cheating have been widely studied in psychology in order to cultivate effectual ...
