A Window to the world
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University : Blacksburg, VA, 1992)
An overview of services provided by Virginia Tech in instruction, research, and public service. "Since its founding as a land-grant college in 1872 in Blacksburg, Virginia Tech has grown to become the state's largest ...
The Haven of the Monastery and the Harvest of Souls: Monasticism and Missions according to Gregory the Great
Monasticism and missions, at first glance, would seem to have little to do with one another. Monasticism is characterized by a life of contemplation, carried out in withdrawal from the activities of the world. Mission, on ...
Comment on the Dispersion Relations used to Calculate Δρ
(American Physical Soc, 1995-06-01)
We use the operator product expansion (OPE) to show that nonperturbative QCD corrections to Δρ can be calculated using unsubtracted dispersion relations for either the transverse or the longitudinal vacuum polarization ...
Oblique Corrections to the W Width
(American Physical Soc, 1994-02-01)
An analysis of nonoblique corrections to the Zb¯b vertex
We present a model–independent analysis of the Zb¯b vertex, with the aim of constraining contributions of new physics to the left- and right–handed couplings of the b. We find that the left–handed coupling of the b is quite ...
Altering the aging process
(Virginia Tech. Learning Resources Center : Blacksburg, Va., 1988)
This teleconference examines recent progress in aging research and explores economic, public policy, social, and ethical issues associated with increasing active life expectancy and with extension of the life span.
The Role of vocational education in restructured schools
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Video/Broadcast Services, 1992)
A teleconference in which panelists discuss how students benefit from restructuring when vocational education becomes an integral part of their educational experience.
Topologies between compact and uniform convergence on function spaces
This paper studies two topologies on the set of all continuous real-valued functionson a Tychonoff space which lie between the topologies of compact convergence and uniformconvergence.
k-space function spaces
A study is made of the properties on X which characterize when Cπ(X) is a k-space, where Cπ(X) is the space of real-valued continuous functions on X having the topology of pointwise convergence. Other properties related ...
