a bidirectional traveling planewave representation of exactsolutions of the scalar waveequation
(AIP Publishing, 198906)A new decomposition of exact solutions to the scalar wave equation into bidirectional, forward and backward, traveling plane wave solutions is described. The resulting representation is a natural basis for synthesizing ... 
A Brief Survey of the Development of Dramatic Literature for Children
(Johns Hopkins Univ Press, 1983) 
A Brighter Idea : Eggs!
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 20090922)This booklet is designed to provide a better understanding and use of the Incredible Edible Egg. 
A Cellular Automata Approach to Estimate IncidentRelated Travel Time on Interstate 66 in Near Real Time
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 201003)Incidents account for a large portion of all congestion and a need clearly exists for tools to predict and estimate incident effects. This study examined (1) congestion back propagation to estimate the length of the queue ... 
A closedform method for calculating the angular distribution of multiply scattered photons through isotropic turbid slabs
(Optical Society of America, 201111)This paper develops a method for calculating the angular distribution (AD) of multiply scattered photons through isotropic turbid slabs. Extension to anisotropic scattering is also discussed. Previous studies have recognized ... 
A Comparative Analysis Between Virginia's and North Carolina's Wine Industries
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 20120201)This paper does a comparative analysis of the wine industry in Virginia and North Carolina by looking at four specific issues: (1) grape varieties and viticultural areas in both states; (2) marketing and distribution issues; ... 
A comparative genomics perspective on the genetic content of the alkaliphilic haloarchaeon Natrialba magadii ATCC 43099T
(20120504)AbstractBackgroundNatrialba magadii is an aerobic chemoorganotrophic member of the Euryarchaeota and is a dual extremophile requiring alkaline conditions and hypersalinity for optimal growth. The genome sequence of Nab. ... 
a comparison of principal components from real and random data
(Ecological Society of America, 1985)We compared principal components derived from sets of real data with dimensions of 120 x 7, 120 x 4, 150 x 11, 150 x 8, 150 x 5, 454 x 12, 454 x 8, and 454 x 5, to those from sets of randomly generated data of corresponding ... 
A comparison of SuperDARN ACF fitting methods
(American Geophysical Union, 201305)The Super Dual Auroral Radar Network (SuperDARN) is a worldwide chain of HF radars which monitor plasma dynamics in the ionosphere. Autocorrelation functions are routinely calculated from the radar returns and applied to ... 
A comparison of viscoelastic stress wakes for twodimensional and threedimensional Newtonian drop deformations in a viscoelastic matrix under shear
(American Institute of Physics, 200907)A recent experimental study of a Newtonian drop suspended in a viscoelastic matrix undergoing simple shear displays a transient overshoot in drop deformation which is qualitatively similar to twodimensional (2D) numerical ... 
A computational study of nucleosomal DNA flexibility
(CELL PRESS, 200612)Molecular dynamics simulations of the nucleosome core particle and its isolated DNA free in solution are reported. The simulations are based on the implicit solvent methodology and provide insights into the nature of ... 
A conceptual model of the sense of presence in virtual environments
(MIT Press, 199904)This paper proposes a model of interaction in virtual environments which we term the immersion, presence, performance (IPP) model. This model is based on previous models of immersion and presence proposed by Barfield and ... 
A correlation force spectrometer for single molecule measurements under tensile load
(American Institute of Physics, 20130107)The dynamicalmechanical properties of a small region of fluid can be measured using two closely spaced thermally stimulated micrometerscale cantilevers. We call this technique correlation force spectroscopy (CFS). We ...
