"On the cover of a Rolling Stone": a content analysis of gender representation in popular culture between 19672004
(Wichita State University, 200605)Compared to the large body of research on female gender roles, little research has focused on male gender representation. This study addresses male and female gender representation as portrayed on the cover of Rolling Stone ... 
On the existence of central fans of capillary surfaces
(Wichita State University, 201305)We prove that under some conditions, the central fans of capillary surfaces exist and are stable. We perturb the contact angle of a capillary surface for a bounded domain which is not necessarily symmetric, that has a ... 
On the existence of convex classical solutions to a generalized PrandtlBatchelor free boundary problem
(Birkhäuser Verlag, Basel, 2004)Under reasonably general assumptions, we prove the existence of convex classical solutions for the PrandtlBatchelor free boundary problem in fluid dynamics, in which a flow of constant vorticity density is embedded in ... 
On the functional status of derived imperfectives in contemporary Upper Sorbian
(American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, 1998) 
On the interpretive role of theories of gravity and 'ugly' solutions to the total evidence for dark matter
(Elsevier Ltd., 201408)Peter Kosso (2013) discusses the weak gravitational lensing observations of the Bullet Cluster and argues that dark matter can be detected in this system solely through the equivalence principle without the need to specify ... 
On the inverse doping profile problem
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 201208)We obtain new analytic results for the problem of the recovery of a doped region D in semiconductor devices from the total flux of electrons/holes through a part of the boundary for various applied potentials on some ... 
On the issue of women's hair and women's personality
(USAAfricaDialogue@googlegroups.com, 20060731)Postings to online discussion 
On the line in Motor City: narratives of Latina auto worker culture
(Wichita State University. Department of Anthropology, 2010)Latina auto workers are an unrecognized population within the U.S. auto industry. This study gives voice to them by using personal accounts of their struggles working on an assembly line while raising a family. I discuss ... 
On the linguistic status of several obscure features of Upper Sorbian morphosyntax
(Modern Humanities Research Association,University College London, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, 200807) 
On the maxillomalar suture and the assessment of group affiliation
(Wichita State University, 200812)The following research aims to determine whether or not the maxillomalar suture can determine group affiliation via quantitative assessment. Until now the standard method of determination involved a visual assessment of ... 
On the nonstarlikeness of solutions to the starlike interior wake problem
(American Mathematical Society, 20050718)We study examples of the starlike interior “wake problem” for which no starlike solution exists relative to the natural star center of the problem. These examples show that the main result of D.E. Tepper in “A mathematical ... 
On the teaching of anthropology
(Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society at Wichita State University, 1970) 
On the test for the homogeneity of a parameter matrix with some rows constrained by synchronized order restrictions
(Elsevier, 201205)The tests on the homogeneity of the columns of the coefficient matrix in a multiple multivariate linear regression with some rows of the matrix constrained by synchronized orderings, using the test statistics obtained by ... 
On uniqueness in the general inverse transmisson problem
(SpringerVerlag, 20080601)In this paper we demonstrate uniqueness of a transparent obstacle, of coefficients of rather general boundary transmission condition, and of a potential coefficient inside obstacle from partial Dirichletto Neumann map or ... 
On uniqueness in the inverse conductivity problem with local data
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 200702)We show that the DirichlettoNeumann map given on an arbitrary part of the boundary of a threedimensional domain with zero Dirichlet (or Neumann) data on the remaining (spherical or plane) part of the boundary uniquely ... 
On uniqueness of obstacles and boundary conditions from restricted dynamical and scattering data
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 200802)We show uniqueness of a (time independent) domain D and of an impedance type boundary condition from either dynamical or scattering data at many frequencies. We assume that the additonal boundary (scattering) data are ... 
Optimization of a fiducial volume for a 10 kiloton water Cerenkov detector for geoneutrinos
(Wichita State University, 201312)A fiducial volume is crucial in particle physics when trying to choose the shape and size of a particle detector. The fiducial volume is defined as the volume at which a specified number of energy events are to be accepted. ... 
Orang and bushbaby social life: Why so similar?
(Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society at Wichita State University, 1981)Article is a comparative study of the behavior of the bushbaby and the orangutan. Both the galago, a prosimian, and the orang , a great ape, exhibit a "solitary" pattern or social structure. Smith correlates similarities ... 
Order restricted Abasis and Bbasis values
(Wichita State University, 201205)In this thesis, the concept of Abasis and Bbasis as it relates to the aviation industry is studied. The rst assumption that will be made in order to help with the formulation of the Abasis and Bbasis values is that ... 
Order restricted inference for comparing the cumulative incidence of a competing risk over several populations
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2008)There is a substantial literature on testing for the equality of the cumulative incidence functions associated with one specific cause in a competing risks setting across several populations against specific or all ...
