(MDPI, 20210929)The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an international, worldclass experiment aimed at exploring fundamental questions about the universe that are at the forefront of astrophysics and particle physics research. ... 
Fortyfold speedup of NV center magnetometry with sequential Bayesian experiment design
(Optica Publishing Group, 20210501)In magnetometry using quantum defects in diamond (NV  centers), we demonstrate fortyfold speedup with sequential Bayesian experiment design as compared with conventional NVmagnetometry using frequencyswept measurements 
Fortyfold speedup of NV center magnetometry with sequential Bayesian experiment design
(IEEE, 20210501)In magnetometry using quantum defects in diamond (NV  centers), we demonstrate fortyfold speedup with sequential Bayesian experiment design as compared with conventional NVmagnetometry using frequencyswept measurements. 
Enhanced thermal and dielectric performance in ternary $PVDF/PVP/Co_3O_4$ nanocomposites
(Wiley, 20211111)The main objective of this research was to prepare high thermal and dielectric performance $PVDF/PVP/Co_3O_4$ nanocomposites (PVDF, oply(vinylidene fluoride); PVP, polyvinylpyrrolidone) using the method of solution mixing. ... 
Searching for solar KDAR with DUNE
(IOP Publishing, 20211022)The observation of 236 MeV muon neutrinos from kaondecayatrest (KDAR) originating in the core of the Sun would provide a unique signature of dark matter annihilation. Since excellent angle and energy reconstruction are ... 
Mossbauer investigations in hematite nanoparticles
(AMG Transcend Association, 20211016)Hematite nanoparticles of average size 20 nm were synthesized using the solgel method, and the structural characterizations were conducted using XRD and TEM. The XRD profile revealed a small fraction of the maghemite ... 
Torus actions, maximality, and nonnegative curvature
(De Gruyter, 20210903)Let $ℳ_0^n$ be the class of closed, simply connected, nonnegatively curved Riemannian nmanifolds admitting an isometric, effective, isotropymaximal torus action. We prove that if $M \in ℳ_0^n$ then M is equivariantly ... 
Applied topological data analysis to ElNiño Southern Oscillation
(Wichita State University, 202107)The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the most powerful climate phenomena that can change global air circulation, affecting temperature and rainfall around the planet. ENSO has three phases: El Niño and La ... 
Ricci tensor under conformal change of metric as an elementary obstruction to certain Einstein metrics
(Wichita State University, 202107)Gregorio RicciCurbastro, (18531925) Bologna, was an Italian mathematician and a professor at the University of Padua from 1880 1925. He was the rst to introduce the systematic theory of tensor analysis in 1887 with a ... 
Positive (p, n)intermediate scalar curvature and GromovLawson cobordism
(Wichita State University, 202108)In this thesis we consider a well known construction due to Gromov, Lawson, and Gajer which allows for the extension of a metric of positive scalar curvature over the trace of a surgery in codimension at least 3 to a ... 
A pseudo restricted maximum likelihood estimator under multivariate simple tree order restriction and an algorithm
(Wichita State University, 202107)The minimum distance projection of a given matrix $X \in R^{pxq}$ onto the order restricted cone in an appropriately defined inner product system, $\pi(XC_{pxq}),$ plays an important role in order restricted statistical ... 
On the inverse gravimetry problem with minimal data
(Wichita State University, 202107)In this dissertation we considered the inverse source problem $\Delta u = \mu,$ where lim $u (x) = 0$ as x goes to $\infty$ and $\mu$ is zero outside a bounded domain $\Omega$. The inverse problem of gravime try is to ... 
Seasonal variation of multiplemuon cosmic ray air showers observed in the NOvA detector on the surface
(American Physical Society, 20210730)We report the rate of cosmic ray air showers with multiplicities exceeding 15 muon tracks recorded in the NOvA Far Detector between May 2016 and May 2018. The detector is located on the surface under an overburden of 3.6 ... 
Hyperbolic cosine ratio and hyperbolic sine ratio random fields
(Elsevier, 202112)This paper introduces several vector random fields whose finitedimensional characteristic functions are of hyperbolic type, including generalized logistic, hyperbolic secant, hyperbolic tangent, hyperbolic cosine ratio, ... 
Stellar modeling with lowtemperature onthefly opacity
(Wichita State University, 202105)Accurate stellar modeling requires using our understanding of phenomena far smaller than humans can observe to study some of the largest objects in the universe. One quantity that bridges this gap is the mean opacity, ... 
Monte Carlo simulations of a spacebased dark matter detector
(Wichita State University, 202105)It has been well established that a large percentage of the material in the universe is in an undiscovered form; Dark Matter. Most of this material is gravitationally condensed together as galaxies and clusters of galaxies. ... 
The Hopf Conjecture with abelian symmetries
(Wichita State University, 202105)The Hopf Conjecture states that for closed, orietable, evendimensional manifolds, the Euler characteristic is strictly positive. Results due independently to P uttmann and Searle [13] and Rong [14], and due to Rong and ...
