      We present updated results from the NOvA experiment for $\nu_\mu\rightarrow\nu_\mu$ and $\nu_\mu\rightarrow\nu_e$ oscillations from an exposure of $8.85\times10^{20}$ protons on target, which represents an increase of 46% ...
    • A new test for decreasing mean residual lifetimes 

      Lorenzo, Edgardo; Malla, Ganesh B.; Mukerjee, Hari (Taylor & Francis, 2018-03-02)
      The mean residual life of a non negative random variable X with a finite mean is defined by M(t) = E[X - t|X > t] for t 0. One model of aging is the decreasing mean residual life (DMRL): M is decreasing (non increasing) ...
    • A new test for new better than used in expectation lifetimes 

      Lorenzo, Edgardo; Malla, Ganesh B.; Mukerjee, Hari (Taylor & Francis Group, 2015)
      The mean residual life of a non negative random variable X with a finite mean is defined by M(t) = E[X - t | X > t] for t >= 0. A popular nonparametric model of aging is new better than used in expectation (NBUE), when ...
    • Nilsolitons of H-type in the Lorentzian setting 

      Onda, Kensuke (Houston Journal of Mathematics, 2015)
      It is known that all left-invariant pseudo-Riemannian metrics on the three-dimensional Heisenberg group H-3 are algebraic Ricci solitons. We consider generalizations of Riemannian H-type, namely pseudoH-type and pH-type. ...

      Chen, Tinghua (Wichita State University, 2022-04-29)
      The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 by ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) opens a new era to particle physics, making processes involving Higgs production interesting and essential in many ...
    • NLO multijet merging for Higgs production beyond the VBF approximation 

      Chen, Tinghua; Figy, Terrance M.; Plätzer, Simon (Springer Nature, 2022-08-13)
      We present results of the simulation of electroweak Higgs boson production at the Large Hadron Collider using both the NLO multijet merging and NLO matching frameworks provided by the general purpose event generator Herwig ...
    • Non-negatively curved 6-manifolds with almost maximal symmetry rank 

      Escher, Christine; Searle, Catherine (Springer Nature, 2019-01)
      We classify closed, simply connected, non-negatively curved 6-manifolds of almost maximal symmetry rank up to equivariant diffeomorphism.
    • Numerical comparison of negative damping bounds in a specified domain when the wave speed varies 

      Najafi, M.; Sarhangi, G.R.; Sawan, M. Edwin (IEEE, 1992-06-24)
      The energy decay of a self-excited wave equation utt - c2 ¿ u - P(x)ut = 0 is studied where the wave speed c is greater than one, P(x) ¿ 0, and P(x) L¿(¿), ¿ ¿ ¿ Rn. Moreover, the relationship between two bounds for ...
    • Numerical computation of Schwarz-Christoffel transformations and slit maps for multiply connected domains 

      Kropf, Everett (Wichita State University, 2012-05)
      Two methods for the numerical conformal mapping of domains with m < ∞ separated circular holes to domains with m polygonal holes are presented; bounded and unbounded domains are both considered. The methods are based on ...
    • Numerical methods for Riemann-Hilbert problems in multiply connected circle domains 

      Balu, Raja; DeLillo, Thomas K. (Elsevier Science Inc., 2016-12-01)
      Riemann-Hilbert problems in multiply connected domains arise in a number of applications, such as the computation of conformal maps. As an example here, we consider a linear problem for computing the conformal map from the ...

      Balu, Raja (Wichita State University, 2020-05)
      Riemann-Hilbert problems are problems for determining functions analytic in a given domain with speci ed values on the boundary. Since the real and imaginary parts of an analytic function are related by the Cauchy-Riemann ...
