A capillary surface with no radial limits
(Wichita State University, 201705)We begin by discussing the circumstances of capillary surfaces in regions with a corner, both concave and convex. These circumstances led to the (since proved) ConcusFinn Conjecture, which gives the requirements for a ... 
A class of stationary random fields with a simple correlation structure
(Academic Press, 20040715)A stationary random field is often more complicated than a univariate stationary time series, since dependence for a random field extends in all directions, while there is only the natural distinction of past and future ... 
A comparative study of electroweak Higgs boson production at future Hadron Colliders
(Wichita State University, 201807)The discovery of the Higgs boson has opened the door to the next phase of exploration in particle physics. Since the Higgs boson was found in July 2012 at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), many researches and experiments ...

A comparison of some numerical conformal mapping methods for simply and multiply connected domains
(Wichita State University, 201605)This dissertation compares several methods for computing conformal maps from simply and multiply connected domains bounded by circles to target domains bounded by smooth curves and curves with corners. We discuss the use ... 
A multiple decision procedure for testing with ordered alternatives
(Wichita State University, 201507)In testing hypotheses with ordered alternatives, the conclusion of an order restriction when rejecting the null hypothesis is very sensitive to the correctness of the assumed model. In other words, when the null hypothesis ... 
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 ... 
A strong law of large numbers for nonparametric regression
(Academic Press, 1989071)Suppose (i1,n, ..., in,n) is permutation of (1, ..., n) for each positive integer n such that the order of the indices {1, h., n  1} in the permutation corresponding to n  1 is preserved. If {Zn} is a sequence of meanzero ... 
Accessibility and selective stabilization of the principal spin states of iron by pyridyl versus phenolic ketimines: modulation of the (6)a(1) <> t2(2) groundstate transformation of the [fen4o2](+) chromophore
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 20120806)Several potentially tridentate pyridyl and phenolic Schiff bases (apRen and HhapRen, respectively) were derived from the condensation reactions of 2acetylpyridine (ap) and 2'hydroxyacetophenone (Hhap), respectively, with ... 
An adaptive multiresolution interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin Method for wave equations in second order form
(Springer, 20201004)In this paper, we propose a class of adaptive multiresolution (also called adaptive sparse grid) discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for simulating scalar wave equations in second order form in space. The two key ingredients ... 
Adjusting neutrino interaction models and evaluating uncertainties using NOvA near detector data
(EDP Sciences, 20201204)The twodetector design of the NOvA neutrino oscillation experiment, in which two functionally identical detectors are exposed to an intense neutrino beam, aids in canceling leading order effects of crosssection uncertainties. ... 
Advanced forecasting model on land market value based on USA real estate market
(Wichita State University, 201912)This research presents a time series estimation and prediction methods with the use of classic and advanced forecasting tools. Our discussion about di erent time series models is supported by giving the experimental forecast ... 
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 ... 
Ages of 70 dwarfs of three populations in the solar neighborhood: considering O and C abundances in stellar models
(IOP Publishing Ltd, 20161215)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 ... 
Ages of dwarfs in the solar neighborhood: considering C and O enhancements
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 20200204)Precise stellar ages of stars are necessary to study the evolution of the Milky Way. The age determination is significantly affected by C and O abundances of stars due to their contribution to the overall metallicity and ... 
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 ... 
Almost nonnegatively curved 4manifolds with torus symmetry
(American Mathematical Society, 20200814)We prove that if a closed, smooth, simplyconnected 4manifold with a circle action admits an almost nonnegatively curved sequence of invariant Riemannian metrics, then it also admits a nonnegatively curved Riemannian ... 
An opensource implementation of the quick CSF method for rapid evaluation of contrast sensitivity
(Wichita State University, 20190426)Contrast sensitivity is an important feature of functional vision, but traditional psychometric assessment methods require an excessive number of trials to estimate a complete contrast sensitivity function across the full ... 
Annular capillary surfaces
(BirkhäuserVerlag, Basel, 20040501)The meniscus in a symmetric annular capillary tube is investigated. The contact angles on the inner and outer tube surface need not be the same. Existence and qualitative properties of solutions are obtained using an ... 
Application of the limit of truncated isotonic regression in optimization subject to isotonic and bounding constraints
(Academic Press Inc., 20020525)An isotonic regression truncated by confining its domain to a union of its level sets is the isotonic regression in the reduced function space. When some of the weights with which the inner product system is defined go to ...
