Market demand for a Graduate Certificate in districtlevel licensure and superintendence
(Education Advisory Board, 2017)Market brief recommendations: Continue to include an internship component in the superintendent certificate program to confer indemand skills and compete with profiled programs; recruit current administrators in the K12 ... 
Marginal levelized cost of energy bases optimal operation of distribution system considering photovoltaics
(IEEE, 2017)The significant increase in Distribution Generation (DG) technologies such as solar and wind can provide environmental and economic benefits. However, uncontrolled solar and wind penetration at distribution level can have ... 
Estimation of missing transmission line reactance data using multiple linear regression
(IEEE, 2017)This paper explores the use of Multiple Linear Regression techniques in order to estimate sections of missing line reactance data sometimes found in the data received from synchrophasor measurement units. The high correlation ... 
Worstcase reliability modeling and evaluation in cyberenabled power distribution systems
(IEEE, 2017)This paper presents a methodology to calculate the worstcase reliability of smart distribution system. Impact of communication infrastructure failure on the system reliability is investigated in both substationcentered ... 
Can asexuality confer a shortterm advantage? Investigating apparent biogeographic success in the apomictic triploid fern Myriopteris gracilis
(Botanical Society of America, 20170816)PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Although asexual taxa are generally seen as evolutionary dead ends, asexuality appears to provide a shortterm benefit in some taxa, including a wider geographic distribution compared to sexual ... 
Repurposing an inhibitor of ribosomal biogenesis with broad antifungal activity
(Nature Publishing Group, 20171205)The lack of new antifungal compounds with unique mechanisms of action is a concern for therapeutic management of patients. To identify inhibitors against human pathogenic fungi, we screened similar to 3000 compounds provided ... 
Chapter 22  Scholar‐Practitioners: Comparing and Contrasting the Role of Scholarship in the Careers of Administrators and Faculty
(Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2017)Those who are identified as scholarpractitioners in student affairs administration are relatively rare, or at least that was my experience over the four decades that I was an administrator and faculty member in higher ... 
Preface  Inverse Problems for Partial Differential Equations First Edition Preface
(Springer, 2017)This book describes the contemporary state of the theory and some numerical aspects of inverse problems in partial differential equations. The topic is of substantial and growing interest for many scientists and engineers ... 
Preface  Inverse Problems for Partial Differential Equations Second Edition Preface
(Springer, 2017)In 8 years after the publication of the first version of this book, the rapidly progressing field of inverse problems witnessed changes and new developments. Parts of the book were used at several universities, and many ... 
Isotropic twodimensional pseudoRiemannian metrics uniquely constructed by a given curvature
(Elsevier, 201801)We prove a global uniqueness theorem of reconstruction of a twodimensional pseudo metric by a given Gaussian curvature. 
Chapter 3  Current Status, Gaps, and Weaknesses of the Mechanism of Selective Dopaminergic Toxicity of MPTP/MPP+
(Elsevier, 2017)Among Parkinson's disease (PD) toxin models, MPTP/MPP+ has been the most popular, extensively characterized, and widely used to identify the cellular mechanisms associated with the selective degeneration of dopaminergic ... 
Appendix  Function Spaces
(Springer, 2017)We collect here definitions and known results about space Ck+λ of H¨older continuous functions and about Sobolev space Hkp that we used in the book 
Chapter 1  Inverse Problems
(Springer, 2017)In this chapter, we formulate basic inverse problems and indicate their applications. The choice of these problems is not random. We think that it represents their interconnections and some hierarchy. 
Chapter 3  Uniqueness and Stability in the Cauchy Problem
(Springer, 2017)In this chapter we formulate and in many cases prove results on the uniqueness and stability of solutions of the Cauchy problem for general partial differential equations. One of the basic tools is Carlemantype estimates. ... 
Preface  Inverse Problems for Partial Differential Equations Third Edition Preface
(Springer, 2017)In 10 years after the publication of the second edition of this book, the changing field of inverse problems witnessed further new developments. Parts of the book were used at several universities, and many colleagues and ... 
Chapter 2  IllPosed Problems and Regularization
(Springer, 2017)In this chapter, we consider the equation. 
Chapter 5  Elliptic Equations: Many Boundary Measurements
(Springer, 2017)We consider the Dirichlet problem (4.0.1), (4.0.2). At first we assume that for any Dirichlet data g0 we are given the Neumann data g1; in other words, we know the results of all possible boundary measurements, or the ... 
Chapter 7  Integral Geometry and Tomography
(Springer, 2017)The problems of integral geometry are to determine a function given (weighted) integrals of this function over a “rich” family of manifolds. These problems are of importance in medical applications (tomography), and they ... 
Chapter 4  Elliptic Equations: Single Boundary Measurements
(Springer, 2017)In this chapter we consider the elliptic secondorder differential equation Au=finΩ,f=f0−∑j=1n∂jfjAu=finΩ,f=f0−∑j=1n∂jfj with the Dirichlet boundary data u=g0on∂Ω.u=g0on∂Ω. We assume that A = div(−a∇) + b ⋅ ∇ + c ...
