  • Time varying isotropic vector random fields on sphere 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Springer, 2017-12)
    For a vector random field that is isotropic and mean square continuous on a sphere and stationary on a temporal domain, this paper derives a general form of its covariance matrix function and provides a series representation ...
  • Constraints on the distance moduli, helium, and metal abundances, and ages of globular clusters from their RR Lyrae and non-variable horizontal branch stars. II. multiple stellar populations in 47 Tuc, M3, and M13 

    Denissenkov, Pavel A.; VandenBerg, Don A.; Kopacki, Grzegorz; Ferguson, Jason W. (IOP Publishing, 2017-11-10)
    We present a new set of horizontal branch (HB) models computed with the MESA stellar evolution code. The models adopt alpha-enhanced Asplund et al. metal mixtures and include the gravitational settling of He. They are used ...
  • Search for active-sterile neutrino mixing using neutral-current interactions in NOvA 

    Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2017-10-30)
    We report results from the first search for sterile neutrinos mixing with active neutrinos through a reduction in the rate of neutral-current interactions over a baseline of 810 km between the NOvA detectors. Analyzing a ...
  • Binomial-chi(2) vector random fields 

    Ma, Chunsheng (SIAM Publ., 2017)
    We introduce a new class of non-Gaussian vector random fields in space and/or time, which are termed binomial-chi(2) vector random fields and include chi(2) vector random fields as special cases. We define a binomial-chi(2) ...
  • Vector stochastic processes with Polya-Type correlation structure 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Wiley, 2017-08)
    This paper introduces a simple method to construct a stationary process on the real line with a Polya-type covariance function and with any infinitely divisible marginal distribution, by randomising the timescale of the ...
  • Orientation and symmetries of Alexandrov spaces with applications in positive curvature 

    Harvey, John; Searle, Catherine (Springer, 2017-04)
    We develop two new tools for use in Alexandrov geometry: a theory of ramified orientable double covers and a particularly useful version of the Slice Theorem for actions of compact Lie groups. These tools are applied to ...
  • Learning quantum annealing 

    Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Steck, James E.; Moustafa, M. A. (Rinton Press, Inc., 2017-05-01)
    We propose and develop a new procedure, whereby a quantum system can learn to anneal to a desired ground state. We demonstrate successful learning to produce an entangled state for a two-qubit system, then demonstrate ...
  • Constraints on oscillation parameters from nu(e) appearance and nu(mu) disappearance in NOvA 

    Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2017-06-05)
    Results are reported from an improved measurement of nu(mu) -> nu(e) transitions by the NOvA experiment. Using an exposure equivalent to 6.05 x 10(20) protons on target, 33 nu(e) candidates are observed with a background ...
  • Prediction of land market value based on the real estate market in USA 

    Wang, Lei (Wichita State University, 2017-04-28)
    The Land Market Value, defined as the total value of land and quantity data are derived from data on housing values, is an important factor in the estimation of structure costs using price indexes for housing and construction ...
  • Unexpected radial limit 

    Entekhabi, Mozhgan (Wichita State University, 2017-04-28)
    Consider a bounded solution ƒ of the prescribed mean curvature equation over a bounded domain Ω ⊂ R² which has a corner at which has a corner at (0, 0) of size 2α and assume the mean curvature of the graph of ƒ is bounded. ...
  • Measurement of the neutrino mixing angle theta(23) in NOvA 

    Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2017-04-10)
    This Letter reports new results on muon neutrino disappearance from NOvA, using a 14 kton detector equivalent exposure of 6.05 x 10(20) protons on target from the NuMI beam at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The ...
  • Radial limits of capillary surfaces at corners 

    Entekhabi, Mozhgan (Nora); Lancaster, Kirk E. (Pacific Journal of Mathematics, 2017-05)
    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 subset of R-2, where Omega is a domain whose boundary ...
  • On cusp solutions to a prescribed mean curvature equation 

    Echart, Alexandra K.; Lancaster, Kirk E. (Pacific Journal of Mathematics, 2017-05)
    The nonexistence of "cusp solutions" of prescribed mean curvature boundary value problems in Omega x R when Omega is a domain in R-2 is proven in certain cases and an application to radial limits at a corner is mentioned.
  • Hydrogenation of carbon dioxide over K-Promoted FeCo bimetallic catalysts prepared from mixed metal oxalates 

    Gnanamani, Muthu Kumaran; Hamdeh, Hussein H.; Jacobs, Gary; Shafer, Wilson D.; Hopps, Shelley D.; Thomas, Gerald A.; Davis, Burtron H. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2017-04-07)
    The hydrogenation of carbon dioxide over K-promoted FeCo bimetallic catalysts prepared by sequential oxalate decomposition and carburization of FeCo with CO was studied in a fixed-bed reactor at 240 degrees C and 1.2MPa. ...
  • Estimation of a star-shaped distribution function 

    El Barmi, Hammou; Malla, Ganesh B.; Mukerjee, Hari (Taylor & Francis LTD, 2017)
    A life distribution function (DF) F is said to be star-shaped if F(x)/x is nondecreasing on its support. This generalises the model of a convex DF, even allowing for jumps. The nonparametric maximum likelihood estimation ...
  • A comparison of some numerical conformal mapping methods for simply and multiply connected domains 

    Badreddine, Mohamed (Wichita State University, 2016-05)
    This dissertation compares several methods for computing conformal maps from sim-ply and multiply connected domains bounded by circles to target domains bounded by smooth curves and curves with corners. We discuss the use ...
  • Ages of 70 dwarfs of three populations in the solar neighborhood: considering O and C abundances in stellar models 

    Ge, Z. S.; Bi, S. L.; Chen, Y. Q.; Li, T. D.; Zhao, J. K.; Liu, K.; Ferguson, Jason W.; Wu, Y. Q. (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2016-12-15)
    Oxygen and carbon are important elements in stellar populations. Their behavior refers to the formation history of the stellar populations. C and O abundances would also obviously influence stellar opacities and the overall ...
