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 ...

(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 20100317)Describes a decision tool using Microsoft Excel. 
A DecisionMaking Tool to Determine the Feasibility of Purchasing Virginia Milk Commission Base
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 20140110)Risk management tools can be used to protect dairy farmers against milk price volatility. One of these tools is Virginia milk commission base. 
A diffusionviscous analysis and experimental verification of defect formation in sintered silver bondline
(Cambridge University Press, 201404)The lowtemperature joining technique (LTJT) by silver sintering is being implemented by major manufacturers of power electronic devices and modules for bonding power semiconductor chips. A common dieattach material used ... 
A Dirichlet process model for classifying and forecasting epidemic curves
(20140109)Abstract Background A forecast can be defined as an endeavor to quantitatively estimate a future event or probabilities assigned to a future occurrence. Forecasting stochastic processes such as epidemics is challenging ... 
A discretevelocity, stationary Wigner equation
(AIP Publishing, 200011)This paper is concerned with the onedimensional stationary linear Wigner equation, a kinetic formulation of quantum mechanics. Specifically, we analyze the wellposedness of the boundary value problem on a slab of the ... 
A Dual PET/MR Imaging Nanoprobe: 124I Labeled Gd3N@C80
(MDPI, 20120510)The current report describes the development of a dual modality tomographic agent for both positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI). The dualmodality agent in this study was based on a 124I ... 
A finite element splitting extrapolation for second order hyperbolic equations
(Siam Publications, 2009)Splitting extrapolation is an efficient technique for solving large scale scientific and engineering problems in parallel. This article discusses a finite element splitting extrapolation for second order hyperbolic equations ... 
A general convergence analysis of some Newtontype methods for nonlinear inverse problems
(Siam Publications, 2011)We consider the methods x(n+1)(delta)  x(n)(delta)  g(alpha n) (F'(x(n)(delta))* F'(x(n)(delta)))F'(x(n)(delta))*(F(x(n)(delta))  y(delta)) for solving nonlinear illposed inverse problems F(x) = y using the only available ... 
A generalized rule for large piezoelectric response in perovskite oxide ceramics and its application for design of leadfree compositions
(American Institute of Physics, 20090601)We present a general rule for the perovskite oxide ceramics: "A large piezoelectric constant in ABO(3) perovskite ceramics can be obtained by tuning the weight ratio of A and B sites, WA/WB or WB/WA, to 3. Piezoelectric ...
