Wellbalanced discontinuous Galerkin method for shallow water equations with constant subtraction techniques on unstructured meshes
(Springer US, 201910)The classical Saint–Venant shallow water equations on complex geometries have wide applications in many areas including coastal engineering and atmospheric modeling. The main numerical challenge in simulating Saint–Venant ... 
Algorithm for determining the volatility function in the Black–Scholes model
(Pleiades Publishing, 201910)Abstract: An algorithm for reconstructing the volatility function in the modified Black–Scholes model is developed. Results of numerical computations are presented. It is shown that adding information about the prices of ... 
Models of parenting and its effect on academic productivity: Preliminary results from an international survey
(International Conference on Scientometrics and Informetrics, 201909)This preliminary paper investigates the cost of parenting engagement on academic productivity and impact. Instead of investigating the relationship between gender and academia, this study focuses on time invested in parenting ... 
Geometry of the triple junction between three fluids in equilibrium
(Texas State University, 20190827)We present an approach to the problem of the blow up at the triple junction of three uids in equilibrium. Although many of our results can already be found in the literature, our approach is almost selfcontained and uses ... 
Revisiting Kepler444: I. Seismic modeling and inversions of stellar structure
(EDP Sciences, 20191003)Context. The CoRoT and Kepler missions have paved the way for synergies between exoplanetology and asteroseismology. The use of seismic data helps providing stringent constraints on the stellar properties which directly ... 
On increasing stability of the continuation for elliptic equations of second order without (Pseudo)convexity assumptions
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 201910)We derive bounds of solutions of the Cauchy problem for general elliptic partial differential equations of second order containing parameter (wave number) k which are getting nearly Lipschitz for large k. Proofs use energy ... 
Series representations of isotropic vector random fields on balls
(Elsevier, 202001)This paper deals with a class of secondorder vector random fields in the unit ball of Rd, whose direct/cross covariances are invariant or isotropic with respect to a distance defined on the ball, and gives a series ... 
Selection optimization of neutral current π⁰ production from an antineutrino interaction in the NOvA near detector
(Wichita State University, 201907)The NOvA experiment (NuMI OffAxis e Appearance) is a particle physics experiment that is designed to measure neutrino oscillation parameters of muon neutrino (ν μ) to electron neutrino (ν e), or muon antineutrino ( ... 
Machine learning applied to programming quantum computers
(American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 20190106)We apply machine learning to “program” quantum computers, both in simulation and in experimental hardware. A major difficulty in quantum computing is developing effective algorithms that can be programmed on a quantum ... 
Observation of seasonal variation of atmospheric multiplemuon events in the NOvA Near Detector
(American Physical Society, 20190628)Using two years of data from the NOvA Near Detector at Fermilab, we report a seasonal variation of cosmic ray induced multiplemuon (Nμ≥2) event rates which has an opposite phase to the seasonal variation in the atmospheric ... 
Isotropic covariance matrix functions on compact twopoint homogeneous spaces
(Springer, 2019)The covariance matrix function is characterized in this paper for a Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on the compact twopoint homogeneous ... 
Preface
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 201902)This is the 13th conference on Beauty, Charm and Hyperon hadrons since the start back in 1995 at Strasbourg. This edition of the series has taken place in the warm and welcoming seaside of Peniche, Portugal. It was quite ... 
Pattern storage in qubit arrays using entanglement and quantum annealing
(Wichita State University, 201905)Multiqubit arrays can be prepared in any state by adjusting the parameters in the Hamiltonian that governs their time evolution. In this work we show that these arrays can be used for pattern storage and recall, using ... 
Monte Carlo simulations of a nearsolar orbit neutrino detector
(Wichita State University, 201905)Neutrinos—weakly interacting subatomic particles often resultant of nuclear processes, including hydrogen fusion—are the only direct insight into the core of the Sun. Previously constructed neutrino detection experiments ... 
Isotropic positive definite functions on spheres generated from those in Euclidean spaces
(Wichita State University, 201905)In this thesis, author have reviewed the classical characterizations of isotropic positive definite functions on Euclidean spaces and spheres, and had applied them to develop a construction of isotropic positive de nite ... 
Blocking duality for pmodulus on networks and applications
(Springer, 201906)This paper explores the implications of blocking dualitypioneered by Fulkerson et al.in the context of pmodulus on networks. Fulkerson blocking duality is an analog on networks to the method of conjugate families of curves ... 
Conformally variational riemannian invariants
(American Mathematical Society, 20190601)Conformally variational Riemannian invariants (CVIs), such as the scalar curvature, are homogeneous scalar invariants which arise as the gradient of a Riemannian functional. We establish a wide range of stability and ... 
Advanced forecasting model on land market value based on USA real estate market
(Wichita State University, 20190426)This research presents a time series estimation and prediction methods with the use of classic and advanced forecasting tools. Our discussion about different time series models is supported by giving the experimental ...
