A hybrid collocation method for volterra integral equations with weakly singular kernels
(Siam Publications, 2003)The commonly used graded piecewise polynomial collocation method for weakly singular Volterra integral equations may cause serious roundoff error problems due to its use of extremely nonuniform partitions and the sensitivity ... 
A kinetic formulation of 3dimensional quantum mechanical harmonicoscillator under a random perturbation
(AIP Publishing, 197802)The behavior of a three_dimensional, nonrelativistic, quantum mechanical harmonic oscillator is investigated under the influence of three distinct types of randomly fluctuating potential fields. Specifically, kinetic (or ... 
a laboratory miniproject in plantdisease diagnosis
(University of California Press, 198610) 
A longitudinallongitudinal mode TERFENOLD/Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3PbTiO3 laminate composite
(AIP Publishing, 200411)We have found that laminates of longitudinally magnetized magnetostrictive TERFENOLD layersand a longitudinally poled piezoelectric Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3PbTiO3 crystal have a giant magnetoelectric voltage coefficient of >430 ... 
A lowfrequency radio array for space
(EDP SCIENCES, 198804)At the lowest radio frequencies (<30 MHz), the Earth's ionosphere transmits poorly or not at all. This relatively unexplored region of the electromagnetic spectrum is thus an area where high resolution, high sensitivity ... 
A Markov process model of ocean sediments
(Acoustical Society of America, 198501)Monochromatic planewave illumination of a randomly stratified, laterally homogeneous sediment layer is considered. The deposition process creating the stochastic layering is assumed to be a continuous parameter, finite ... 
A model for assessing the likelihood of selfsustaining populations resulting from commercial production of triploid Suminoe oysters (Crassostrea ariakensis) in Chesapeake Bay
(National Marine Fisheries Service Scientific Publication Office, 200310)Culture of a nonnative species, such as the Suminoe oyster (Crassostrea ariakensis), could offset the harvest of the declining native eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) fishery in Chesapeake Bay. Because of possible ... 
A Model to Predict the Impact of Specification Changes on ChlorideInduced Corrosion Service Life of Virginia Bridge Decks
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 200210)A model to determine the time to first repair and subsequent rehabilitation of concrete bridge decks exposed to chloride deicer salts that recognizes and incorporates the statistical nature of factors affecting the corrosion ... 
A Network Biology Approach to Denitrification in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(20150223)Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a metabolically flexible member of the Gammaproteobacteria. Under anaerobic conditions and the presence of nitrate, P. aeruginosa can perform (complete) denitrification, a respiratory process of ... 
A new characterization method for delay and power dissipation of standard library cells
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 200211)A simplified method for characterization of standard library cells based on the linear delay model is presented in this paper. The linear model is chosen as it allows rapid characterization with a modest number of simulations, ... 
a new method of surfaceresistance measurement with a niobium triaxial cavity working at 2K
(AIP Publishing, 199307)A 1.5GHz superconducting niobium triaxial cavity has been fabricated to study residual surface resistance of superconducting materials at 2 K. Unlike many other structures where the entire test samples have to be placed ... 
A New Population of Highz, Dusty Lyα Emitters and Blobs Discovered by WISE: Feedback Caught in the Act?
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 201306)By combining data from the NASA Widefield Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission with optical spectroscopy from the W. M. Keck telescope, we discover a midIR color criterion that yields a 78% success rate in identifying ... 
A note on the energy of relative equilibria of point vortices
(American Institute of Physics, 200710)Analytical formulas are derived for the energy of simple relative equilibria of identical point vortices such as the regular polygons, both open and centered, and the various known configurations consisting of nested regular ... 
a note on the general likelihood measure of overlap
(Ecological Society of America, 1984) 
A note on the iteration of the Chandrasekhar nonlinear Hequation
(AIP Publishing, 197904)An iteration scheme to solve the Chandrasekhar H equation in the form H (_) ={1___F_ 1 0[_ (s) H (s)]/(s +_) d s}_1 is shown to converge monotonically and uniformly. 
A note on the switching adiabatic theorem
(AIP Publishing, 201210)We derive a nearly optimal upper bound on the running time in the adiabatic theorem for a switching family of Hamiltonians. We assume the switching Hamiltonian is in the Gevrey class G(alpha) as a function of time, and we ...
