Examining Mathematics Anxiety of Undergraduates Using a BrainBased Measurement, EEG
(Scientific Research Publishing, 20190527)This paper reports on an investigation of mathematics anxiety (MA) among 40 Korean undergraduate students, using cognitive neuroscience. In Spring 2015, we collected data on correct response rates and reaction times from ... 
Existence Theorems on Solvability of Constrained Inclusion Problems and Applications
(Hindawi, 20180712)Let 𝑋 be a real locally uniformly convex reflexive Banach space with locally uniformly convex dual space 𝑋∗. Let𝑇 : 𝑋 ⊇ 𝐷(𝑇) → 2𝑋∗ be a maximal monotone operator and 𝐶 : 𝑋 ⊇ 𝐷(𝐶) → 𝑋∗ be bounded and continuous ... 
expansionfree electromagnetic solutions of KerrSchild class
(AIP Publishing, 197407)Starting with the general Kerr_Schild form of the metric tensor,d s2=_+l_l (where l is null and _ is flat space_time), a study is made for those solutions of the Einstein_Maxwell equations in which l is geodesic, shear_free, ... 
experimental observation and matching numerical simulation for the deformation and breakup of immiscible drops in oscillatory shear
(AIP Publishing, 200209)This paper describes experimental results on the way immiscible drops of a Newtonian fluid can deform and breakup when subject to oscillatory shear deformation. The paper also reports a matching threedimensional numerical ... 
factorization of scattering matrices due to partitioning of potentials in onedimensional Schrodingertype equations
(AIP Publishing, 199612)The onedimensional Schrodinger equation and two of its generalizations are considered, as they arise in quantum mechanics, wave propagation in a nonhomogeneous medium, and wave propagation in a nonconservative medium where ... 
Factors contributing to students and instructors experiencing a lack of time in college calculus
(SpringerOpen, 20170614)Background: Calculus is a foundational course for STEMintending students yet has been shown to dissuade students from pursuing STEM degrees. In this report, we examine factors related to students and instructors reporting ... 
Ferrofluids and magnetically guided superparamagnetic particles in flows: a review of simulations and modeling
(Springer Netherlands, 20170818) 
Fieldinduced motion of ferrofluid droplets through immiscible viscous media
(Cambridge University Press, 200809)The motion of a hydrophobic ferrofluid droplet placed in a viscous medium and driven by an externally applied magnetic field is investigated numerically in an axisymmetric geometry. Initially, the drop is spherical and ... 
Fine topology on function spaces
(Hindawi, 19860101)This paper studies the topological properties of two kinds of fine topologies on the space C(X,Y) of all continuous functions from X into Y. 
Firstprinciples study of several hypothetical silica framework structures
(American Physical Society, 19950915)Several hypothetical silica structures have been generated using a simulatedannealing strategy with an ab initio based covalentbonding potential. Firstprinciples totalenergy pseudopotential methods have been used to ... 
Fluid Limits of Optimally Controlled Queueing Networks
(Hindawi, 20070821)We consider a class of queueing processes represented by a Skorokhod problem coupled with a controlled point process. Posing a discounted control problem for such processes, we show that the optimal value functions converge, ... 
functional calculus for symmetric multigroup transport operator
(AIP Publishing, 197602)A rigorous treatment of the symmetric multigroup transport equation is given by developing the functional calculus for the transport operator. Von Neumann spectral theory is applied to nonorthogonal cyclic subspaces, and ... 
Glass transition seen through asymptotic expansions
(Siam Publications, 2011)Soft glassy materials exhibit the socalled glassy transition, which means that the behavior of the model at a low shear rate changes when a certain parameter (which we call the glass parameter) crosses a critical value. ... 
Global extremal conditions for multiinteger quadratic programming
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 200805)Support vector machine (SVM) is a very popular method for binary data classification in data mining ( machine learning). Since the objective function of the unconstrained SVM model is a nonsmooth function, a lot of good ... 
Glucose modulates Ca2+ (i) oscillations in pancreatic islets via ionic and glycolytic mechanisms
(CELL PRESS, 200609)Pancreatic islets of Langerhans display complex intracellular calcium changes in response to glucose that include fast (seconds), slow (similar to 5 min), and mixed fast/slow oscillations; the slow and mixed oscillations ... 
GPUaccelerated discontinuous Galerkin methods on hybrid meshes
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 20160801) 
Growth of functions in cercles de remplissage
(Cambridge University Press, 200202)Suppose that f is meromorphic in the plane, and that there is a sequence z(n) > infinity and a sequence of positive numbers epsilon(n) > 0, such that epsilon(n)\z(n)f(#)(z(n))/log\z(n)\ > infinity. It is shown that ... 
Growth series for expansion complexes
This paper is concerned with growth series for expansion complexes for finite subdivision rules. Suppose X is an expansion complex for a finite subdivision rule with bounded valence and mesh approaching 0, and let S be a ...
