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 ... 
Machine learning in NO$\nu$A near detector vertexing
(Wichita State University, 202205)This work presents an alternative method for a reconstruction machine learning algorithm in place of the one currently used by the NO$\nu$A (NuMI Offaxis $\nu_e$ Appearance) group for the analysis of neutrino events at ... 
Manifolds with $4\frac{1}{2}$Positive Curvature Operator of the Second Kind
(Springer Nature, 20220804)We show that a closed fourmanifold with $4\frac{1}{2}$positive curvature operator of the second kind is diffeomorphic to a spherical space form. The curvature assumption is sharp as both ${\mathbb{CP}\mathbb{}}^2$and ... 
Manifolds with nonnegative curvature operator of the second kind
(World Scientific Publishing Co., 20230113)We investigate the curvature operator of the second kind on Riemannian manifolds and prove several classification results. The first one asserts that a closed Riemannian manifold with threepositive curvature operator of ... 
Matchedpairs tests of homogeneity with applications to homologous nucleotide sequences
(Oxford University Press, 20060515)Motivation: Most phylogenetic methods assume that the sequences of nucleotides or amino acids have evolved under stationary, reversible and homogeneous conditions. When these assumptions are violated by the data, there ... 
Measurement of charged pion production yields off the NuMI target
(American Physical Society, 201409)The fixedtarget Main Injector Particle Production (MIPP) experiment, Fermilab E907, was designed to measure the production of hadrons from the collisions of hadrons of momenta ranging from 5 to 120 GeV/c on a variety of ... 
Measurement of neutrinoinduced neutralcurrent coherent $π^0$ production in the NOvA near detector
(American Physical Society, 20200709)The cross section of neutrinoinduced neutralcurrent coherent $\pi^0$ production on a carbondominated target is measured in the NOvA near detector. This measurement uses a narrowband neutrino beam with an average neutrino ... 
Measurement of the neutrino mixing angle $θ_{23}$ in NOvA
(American Physical Society, 20170410)This Letter reports new results on muon neutrino disappearance from NOvA, using a 14 kton detector equivalent exposure of $6.05\times10^{20}$ protonsontarget from the NuMI beam at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. ... 
Measurement of the ν$_e$Nucleus ChargedCurrent DoubleDifferential Cross Section at ⟨$E$$_ν$⟩=2.4 GeV Using NOvA
(American Physical Society, 20221108)The inclusive electron neutrino chargedcurrent cross section is measured in the NOvA near detector using 8.02 ×10$^{20}$ protonsontarget in the NuMI beam. The sample of GeV electron neutrino interactions is the largest ... 
Metrics of positive scalar curvature and generalised Morse functions, part II
(American Mathematical Society, 201401)The surgery technique of Gromov and Lawson may be used to construct families of positive scalar curvature metrics which are parameterised by Morse functions. This has played an important role in the study of the space of ... 
MittagLeffler vector random fields with MittagLeffler direct and cross covariance functions
(Springer Heidelberg, 201310)In terms of the twoparameter MittagLeffler function with specified parameters, this paper introduces the MittagLeffler vector random field through its finitedimensional characteristic functions, which is essentially ... 
Modeling the spread of the Coronavirus
(Wichita State University, 5/3/2020)This talk will introduce statistical modeling concepts relating to prediction of COVID rates at a county level and specifically introduce the notion of spatial correlation, which recognizes that there is a connection between ... 
Models for inviscid wakes past a normal plate
(Cambridge University Press, 20121010)Closed and open hollow wakes are considered as analytic models for the twodimensional inviscid steady flow past a plate normal to the stream. It is shown that only open configurations which satisfy the Kutta condition ... 
Models for metalpoor stars with enhanced abundances of C, N, O, Ne, Na, Mg, Si, S, Ca, and Ti, in turn, at constant helium and iron abundances
(IOP Publishing, 20120810)Recent work has shown that most globular clusters have at least two chemically distinct components, as well as clustertocluster differences in the mean [O/Fe], [Mg/Fe], and [Si/Fe] ratios at similar [Fe/H] values. In ... 
Models of metalpoor stars with different initial abundances of C, N, O, Mg, and Si. I. Bolometric corrections derived from new MARCS synthetic spectra and their implications for observed colourmagnitude diagrams
(Oxford University Press, 20211104)New, highresolution MARCS synthetic spectra have been calculated for more than a dozen mixtures of the metals allowing, in turn, for variations in C:N:O, [CNO/Fe], and enhanced abundances of C, O, Mg, and Si. Bolometric ... 
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 ... 
Modules for the investigation of the central fan question through numerical computation
(Wichita State University, 201505)In this thesis, we continue the research of investigating the central fan question through numerical computation of minimal surfaces and the author develops a new conformal map in hopes of producing a more accurate and ... 
Monochromatic molecular absorption coefficients for use in calculations of stellar opacity
(Wichita State University, 201805)In order to fully understand stellar structure, it is necessary to know the opacity, as it influences the behavior of radiative transfer within the stellar interior. Opacity plays an important role in the onset of ...
