    Consider a solution f is an element of C-2 (Omega)of a prescribed mean curvature equation div del f/root 1+vertical bar del f vertical bar(2) = 2H(x, f) in Omega, where Omega subset of R-2 is a domain whose boundary ...
  • Linear stability of Hill's vortex to axisymmetric perturbations 

    Protas, Bartosz; Elcrat, Alan R. (Cambridge University Press, 2016-07)
    We consider the linear stability of Hill's vortex with respect to axisymmetric perturbations. Given that Hill's vortex is a solution of a free-boundary problem, this stability analysis is performed by applying methods of ...
  • Numerical methods for Riemann-Hilbert problems in multiply connected circle domains 

    Balu, Raja; DeLillo, Thomas K. (Elsevier Science Inc., 2016-12-01)
    Riemann-Hilbert problems in multiply connected domains arise in a number of applications, such as the computation of conformal maps. As an example here, we consider a linear problem for computing the conformal map from the ...
  • Isotropic covariance matrix polynomials on spheres 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)
    This article characterizes the covariance matrix function of a Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on the sphere. By applying the characterization ...
  • Construction industrial multivariate statistical analysis based on real estate market in USA 

    Wang, Lei (Wichita State University, 2016-04-29)
    This project mainly focus on how the land market value, in terms of GDP, CPI, construction cost index and unemployment rate, inflation rate, population and purchasing manage index, enables a relationship with the real ...
  • Stochastic representations of isotropic vector random fields on spheres 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)
    A stochastic representation is derived for a vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on a sphere or unit circle. The established stochastic representation is an infinite series involving ...
  • Nilsolitons of H-type in the Lorentzian setting 

    Onda, Kensuke (Houston Journal of Mathematics, 2015)
    It is known that all left-invariant pseudo-Riemannian metrics on the three-dimensional Heisenberg group H-3 are algebraic Ricci solitons. We consider generalizations of Riemannian H-type, namely pseudoH-type and pH-type. ...
  • On the relationship of continuity and boundary regularity in prescribed mean curvature dirichlet problems 

    Lancaster, Kirk E.; Melin, Jaron Patric (Pacific Journal of Mathematics, 2016-03-03)
    In 1976, Leon Simon showed that if a compact subset of the boundary of a domain is smooth and has negative mean curvature, then the nonparametric least area problem with Lipschitz continuous Dirichlet boundary data has a ...
  • Increasing stability in the inverse problem for the Schrödinger equation 

    Liang, Li (Wichita State University, 2015-12)
    The Schrödinger equation is a partial differential equation that describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes with time. It was formulated in late 1925 by the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger. The study ...
  • Hybrid basis scheme for computing electrostatic fields exterior to close-to-touching discs 

    Crowdy, D. G.; Tanveer, S.; DeLillo, Thomas K. (Oxford University Press, 2016-04)
    This paper presents a simple and effective new numerical scheme for the computation of electrostatic fields exterior to a collection of close-to-touching discs. The method is presented in detail for the two-disc case. The ...
  • Effect of H2S in syngas on the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis performance of a precipitated iron catalyst 

    Ma, Wenping; Jacobs, Gary; Sparks, Dennis E.; Shafer, Wilson D.; Hamdeh, Hussein H.; Hopps, Shelley D.; Pendyala, Venkat Ramana Rao; Hu, Yongfeng; Xiao, Qunfeng; Davis, Burtron H. (Elsevier B.V., 2016-03-05)
    The sulfur limit, the relationship between the sulfur added and the surface Fe atoms lost (Fe/S), and mechanism of sulfur poisoning were studied using an iron Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) catalyst (100 Fe/5.1 Si/2.0Cu/3.0K). ...
  • First measurement of muon-neutrino disappearance in NOvA 

    NOvA Collaboration; Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2016-03-25)
    This paper reports the first measurement using the NOvA detectors of nu(mu) disappearance in a nu(mu) beam. The analysis uses a 14 kton-equivalent exposure of 2.74 x 10(20) protons-on-target from the Fermilab NuMI beam. ...

    Vaytet, Neil; Chabrier, Gilles; Audit, Edouard; Commercon, Benoit; Masson, Jacques; Gonzalez, Matthias; Ferguson, Jason W.; Delahaye, Franck (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2015)
    Many simulations of protostellar collapse make use of a grey treatment of radiative transfer coupled to the hydrodynamics. However, interstellar gas and dust opacities present large variations as a function of frequency. ...
