5SL: A Language for Declarative Specification and Generation of Digital Libraries
(200207)Digital Libraries (DLs) are among the most complex kinds of information systems, due in part to their intrinsic multidisciplinary nature. Nowadays DLs are built within monolithic, tightly integrated, and generally inflexible ... 
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 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 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 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 ... 
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 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 ...
