On determining sets for holomorphic automorphisms
(Rocky Mountain Mathematics Consortium, 20060114)We study sets K in the closure of a domain D Cn such that, if an automorphism ' of D fixes each point of K, then ' is the identity mapping. A separate result is proved for the case that K lies entirely in the boundary of D. 
On increased stability in the continuation of the Helmholtz equation
(IOP Publishing, 200708)In this paper, we give analytical and numerical evidence of increasing stability in the Cauchy problem for the Helmholtz equation in the whole domain when frequency is growing. This effect depends upon the convexity ... 
On Reproducing Social Reality: A Reply to Harrison
(Sage publications, 1986)That social inquirers should be careful about the intrusion of biases and questionable ethnocentric presuppositions is a widely accepted and unquestionably cogent methodological dictum. Less widely accepted, and perhaps ... 
On spanking/whipping and child abuse: Reflection on the case of the Igbo/Nigerian/African Professor who spanked his children
(USAAfricaDialogue@googlegroups.com, 20061027)Postings to online discussion on the methods of discipline of children in different cultures. 
On the asymptotic behavior of solutions of quasilinear elliptic equations
(SpringerVerlag, 20030101)The asymptotic behavior of solutions of secondorder quasilinear elliptic and nonhyperbolic partial differential equations defined on unbounded domains in R n contained in {(Xl, ..., Xn): Ix,~ I < ~(~/x~ +... + x~_ 1)} ... 
On the convergence of rowmodification algorithm for matrix projections
(Elsevier, 201202)This paper proposes an algorithm for matrix minimumdistance projection, with respect to a metric induced from an inner product that is the sum of inner products of column vectors, onto the collection of all matrices with ... 
On the correction of anomalous phase oscillation in entanglement witnesses using quantum neural networks
(IEEE, 20131001)Entanglement of a quantum system depends upon the relative phase in complicated ways, which no single measurement can reflect. Because of this, "entanglement witnesses'' (measures that estimate entanglement) are necessarily ... 
"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
