A test of the maternal stress hypothesis for human male homosexuality
Recent evidence implicates a biological, and particularly, a neurohormonal role for the etiology of human male homosexuality. In contrast to most other traits, however, there is a priori reason to doubt high heritability ...
A Mathematical Model for Three-Dimensional Nonsteady-State Streamline Simulation of Horizontally Drilled Reservoirs
Among the recent technological breakthroughs that have revolutionized the search for oil and its production are innova-tions realized in the field of horizontal drilling. Once dormant, this practice is fast becoming routine ...
Land-use limitations related to geology in the Lake Travis vicinity, Travis and Burnet counties, Texas
Seven maps depicting general geology, physical properties, environmental geology, soils, soil thickness, slope, and fracture intensity describe the land in the Lake Travis vicinity. The maps, descriptive text, and interpretive ...
A Comparison of Three Equation of State Compositional Simulators
During the past two decades, approximately one formulation per year has been published for compositional simulators. However, until now, no consistent comparison has been made on any of them. Three of these formulations ...
