## Coping with a diagnosis of C trachomatis or N gonorrhoeae: psychosocial and behavioral correlates.

The current study sought to add to the stress and coping literature by examining whether coping responses are elicited from a diagnosis of chlamydia or gonorrhea and, if so, whether active or passive coping responses are associated with particular psychological factors and prevention behaviors. Data from 259 urban, minority participants recently diagnosed with chlamydia or gonorrhea were analyzed. Results indicated that denial was associated with having more baseline depressive symptoms and with having more one-time partners at follow-up. Problem-focused coping was associated with more consistent condom use at follow-up. Important sex and ethnicity differences were found. Intervention implications are discussed.

arXiv:1306.4289 [math.CO] 18 Jun 2013

We prove that the number of irreducible integer points in $n$-dimensional Polytope with radious $k$ given by a system of $m$ linear inequalities is at Most $O(m^{\lfloor\frac{n}{2}\rfloor}\log_2^{n-1} k)$ if $n$ is fixed. Using This result we prove the hypothesys asserting that the teaching dimensio...

We realize a Time-resolved, continuous parity measurement of two superconducting qubits Using the cavity in a 3D circuit quantum electrodynamics (cQED) architecture And phase-sensitive parametric amplification. Using postselection, we produce Entanglement by parity measurement reaching 77% concurren...
3. Fermionic reflection matrices

arXiv:1306.4146 [math-ph] 18 Jun 2013

We consider the insertion of integrable boundaries for a class of Supersymmetric quantum models. The generic conditions for constructing purely Bosonic, purely fermionic or mixed type solutions of the graded reflection Equation are extracted. Focusing on models associated with gl(m|n) or Uq(gl(m|n))...
