A perfect matching in a 4-uniform hypergraph on n vertices is a subset of [n/4] disjoint edges. We prove that if H is a sufficiently large 4-uniform hypergraph on n= 4k vertices such that every vertex belongs to more than (n-1 3)-(3n/4 3) edges, then H contains a perfect matching. A construction due to Hàn, Person, and Schacht shows that this result is the best possible. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

This paper explores the use of Islamic doctrine and jurisprudence by family planning organizations in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of northern Pakistan. It examines how particular interpretations of Islam are promoted in order to encourage fertility reductions, and the ways Muslim clerics, women and their families react to this process. The paper first discusses how Pakistan's demographic crisis, as the world's sixth most populous nation, has been widely blamed on under-funding for reproductive health services and wavering political commitment to family planning. Critics have called for innovative policy and programming to counter 'excessive reproduction' by also addressing socio-cultural and religious barriers to contraceptive uptake. Drawing on two years of ethnographic research, the paper examines how family planning organizations in Gilgit-Baltistan respond to this shift by employing moderate interpretations of Islam that qualify contraceptive use as a 'rational' reproductive strategy and larger families as 'irrational'. However, the use of Islamic rhetoric to enhance women's health-seeking agency and enable fertility reductions is challenged by conservative Sunni ulema (clergy), who seek to reassert collective control over women's bodies and fertility by deploying Islamic doctrine that honors frequent childbearing. Sunnis' minority status and the losses incurred by regional Shia-Sunni conflicts have further strengthened clerics' pronatalist campaigns. The paper then analyses how Sunni women navigate the multiple reproductive rationalities espoused by 'Islamized' family planning and conservative ulema. Although Islamized family planning legitimizes contraceptive use and facilitates many women's stated desire for smaller families, it frequently positions women against the interests of family, community and conservative Islam. © 2012 Taylor & Francis.

We show how nitrogen-vacancy centers can be used to determine the amplitude, phase, and frequency of unknown weak monochromatic and multichromatic oscillating magnetic fields using only the periodic dynamical decoupling and Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill sequences. The effect of decoherence on the measurement of the magnetic field parameters is explicitly analyzed, and we take into account the fact that different pulse sequences suppress decoherence to different extents. Since the sensitivity increases with increasing sensing time while it decreases due to decoherence and limited photon detection efficiency, we use the Fisher information matrix in order to optimize the number of pulses that should be used. © 2014 American Physical Society.

We establish coupled fixed point theorems for mixed monotone mappings satisfying nonlinear contraction involving two altering distance functions in ordered partial metric spaces. Presented theorems extend and generalize the results of Bhaskar and Lakshmikantham [T.G. Bhaskar and V. Lakshmikantham, Fixed point theorems in partially ordered metric spaces and applications, Nonlinear Anal. 65 (2006) 1379-1393] and Harjani etal. [J. Harjani, B. López and K. Sadarangani, Fixed point theorems for mixed monotone operators and applications to integral equations, Nonlinear Anal. 74 (2011) 1749-1760]. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper, we get some results on strong and △-convergence in CAT(0) spaces for an iterative scheme which is both faster than and independent of the Ishikawa scheme. We also obtain some results for two mappings using the Ishikawa-type iteration scheme. The motivation of the present work comes from that of Dhompongsa and Panyanak (2008) [3]. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
