    • Monochromatic molecular absorption coefficients for use in calculations of stellar opacity 

      Ehrmann, Kari (Wichita State University, 2018-04-27)
      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 convection ...

      Acker, Andrew; Henrot, Antoine; Poghosyan, Mikayel; Shahgholian, Henrik (European Mathematical Society, 2004-08-21)
      The main result of this paper concerns existence of classical solutions to the multi-layer Bernoulli free boundary problem with nonlinear joining conditions and the p-Laplacian as gov- erning operator. The present treatment ...

      Solid-state direct metal laser sintering (S-DMLS) builds structures by using laser energy to sinter powder particles in a layer-by-layer manner. Powder size distribution (PSD) is an important parameter governing the ...
    • Multifractional vector Brownian motions, their decompositions, and generalizations 

      Ma, Chunsheng (Taylor & Francis Group, 2015-05-04)
      This article introduces three types of covariance matrix structures for Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random fields in space and/or time, which include fractional, bifractional, and trifractional vector Brownian ...
    • Multiqubit entanglement of a general input state 

      Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Steck, James E. (Rinton Press, Inc., 2013-01)
      Measurement of entanglement remains an important problem for quantum information. We present the design and simulation of an experimental method for an entanglement indicator for a general multiqubit state. The system can ...
    • Multivariate isotonic regression and its algorithms 

      Hoffmann, Linda (Wichita State University, 2009-05)
      We use regression functions, which are the means of random variables, to interpret statistical inference. Often an order is imposed on the values of the regression function. Thus, we refer to the regression as an order ...
