(Virginia Tech, 1999)
This is the alumni magazine of the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Tech. Inside: Sticking with Louis Sharpe as he starts to slow down. Plus: The new learning center expands and a brain researcher probes neurological disorders.
(Virginia Tech, 1998)
This is the alumni magazine of the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Tech. Inside: An up-close look at alumnus Gene Weedon and his role with chemistry’s new AlliedSignal Polymer Characterization Lab. Plus: Learn about ...
Stability of zircon u-pb systematics in a greenschist-grade mylonite - an example from the rockfish valley fault zone, central Virginia, USA
(University of Chicago Press, 1992-09)
The mid-Paleozoic, greenschist-grade Rockfish Valley Fault Zone (RVFZ) of central Virginia cuts the Grenville-aged Pedlar River Charnockite Suite (PRCS) and contains zircons that underwent brittle failure during ductile ...
a numerical study of periodic disturbances on two-layer Couette flaw
(AIP Publishing, 1998-12)
The flow of two viscous liquids is investigated numerically with a volume of fluid scheme. The scheme incorporates a semi-implicit Stokes solver to enable computations at low Reynolds numbers, and a second-order velocity ...
Structure of the subducting Nazca plate beneath Peru
(American Geophysical Union, 1994-05)
Arrival times from intermediate-depth (110-150 km) earthquakes within the region of flat subduction beneath the subandean zone and foreland basins of east-central Peru provide constraints on the geometry and velocity ...
collided-flux-expansion method for the transport of muonic deuterium in finite media
(American Physical Society, 1991-07)
Transport of muonic deuterium atoms in a slab of thickness d filled with a molecular deuterium gas is described by means of the multiple-collision expansion in the framework of a time-dependent theory. The relevant expressions ...
Charge assignments in multiple-U(1) gauge theories
(American Physical Society, 1999-12-01)
We discuss the choice of gauge field basis in multiple-U(1) gauge theories. We find that there is a preferred basis, specified by the charge orthogonality condition, in which the U(1) gauge fields do not mix under one-loop ...
Energies and residues of the nucleon resonances N(1535) and N(1650)
(American Physical Society, 1998-12)
We extract pole positions for the N(1535) and N(1650) resonances using two different models. The positions are determined from fits to different subsets of the existing pi N --> pi N, pi N --> eta N, and gamma p --> eta p ...
coupling of orthogonal polarization states in a nonlinear birefringent cavity
(Optical Society of America, 1990)
We discuss the coupling of orthogonally polarized beams in a nonlinear cavity and show experimentally how this can be used to implement gates or latches in which one polarization state is switched by another. These devices ...
