On uniqueness in the inverse conductivity problem with local data
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 200702)We show that the DirichlettoNeumann map given on an arbitrary part of the boundary of a threedimensional domain with zero Dirichlet (or Neumann) data on the remaining (spherical or plane) part of the boundary uniquely ... 
On uniqueness of obstacles and boundary conditions from restricted dynamical and scattering data
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 200802)We show uniqueness of a (time independent) domain D and of an impedance type boundary condition from either dynamical or scattering data at many frequencies. We assume that the additonal boundary (scattering) data are ... 
Opportunities for nitrogenvacancyAssisted magnetometry to study magnetism in 2D van der Waals magnets
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 20220808)Exploring and understanding magnetism in twodimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdW) magnetic materials present a promising route for developing highspeed and lowpower spintronics devices. Studying their magnetic properties ... 
Optically thin core accretion: how planets get their gas in nearly gasfree discs
(Oxford University Press, 20180511)Models of core accretion assume that in the radiative zones of accreting gas envelopes, radiation diffuses. But superEarths/subNeptunes (14 Rcircle plus, 220M(circle plus)) point to formation conditions that are ... 
Order restricted Abasis and Bbasis values
(Wichita State University, 201205)In this thesis, the concept of Abasis and Bbasis as it relates to the aviation industry is studied. The rst assumption that will be made in order to help with the formulation of the Abasis and Bbasis values is that ... 
Order restricted inference for comparing the cumulative incidence of a competing risk over several populations
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2008)There is a substantial literature on testing for the equality of the cumulative incidence functions associated with one specific cause in a competing risks setting across several populations against specific or all ... 
Order restricted inferences about lifetimes under censoring
(Wichita State University, 200907)In survival analysis and in the analysis of the life tables an important biometric function of interest is the mean residual life function (MRLF) M whose value at age t is the average future life time given that a subject ... 
Orientation and symmetries of Alexandrov spaces with applications in positive curvature
(Springer, 201704)We develop two new tools for use in Alexandrov geometry: a theory of ramified orientable double covers and a particularly useful version of the Slice Theorem for actions of compact Lie groups. These tools are applied to ... 
A pair of stationary stochastic processes with application to Wichita temperature data
(Wichita State University, 201008)The thesis investigates a pair of stationary stochastic process models whose domains are the set of integers and the set of real numbers respectively. The stationary processes with our specific correlation functions ... 
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 ... 
Peakedness and convex ordering for elliptically contoured random fields
(Elsevier, 201812)For the peakedness comparison between two Gaussian random fields about their mean functions, a necessary and sufficient condition is derived in this paper in terms of their covariance functions. interestingly, such a ... 
Peakedness and peakedness ordering
(Elsevier, 20120510)The peakedness of a random variable (RV) X about a point a is defined by . A RV X is said to be less peaked about a than a RV Y about b, denoted by X≤pkd(a,b)Y, if P(X−a≤x)≤P(Y−b≤x) for all x≥0, i.e., X−a is ... 
Pellet ablation in tokamak reactors
(Wichita State University. Graduate School., 20120418)Injecting frozen hydrogen pellets has been proposed as a method of efficiently refueling Tokamak fusion reactors. The intense heat of the reactor causes the pellet to lose mass in a process called ablation. This process ... 
Pellet ablation in Tokamak reactors
(Wichita State University, 201507)We implemented a rotational cloud model for the simulation of pellet ablation in a Tokamak reactor. We have shown that the ablation rate in the rotational cloud model converges quickly to a steady state value independent ... 
Penalized splines fitting for a poisson response including outliers
(Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research, 20191207)There have been various studies in the literature on investigating the relationship between a count response and several covariates. Most researchers study count variables and use traditional methods (i.e. generalized ... 
Photometric properties of stellar populations in Galactic globular clusters: the role of the MgAl anticorrelation
(EDP Sciences S A, 201306)We have computed lowmass stellar models and synthetic spectra for an initial chemical composition that includes the full CN, ONa, and MgAl abundance anticorrelations observed in secondgeneration stars belonging to a ... 
Planartemporal stationary correlation models that depend on the maximum norm
(IEEE, 200703)It is useful to have various stochastic models to describe a wide range of spatial or spatiotemporal dependence and interaction. Two families of planartemporal stationary correlation functions are proposed in this ... 
Pluripolar hulls and convergence sets
(Wichita State University, 201805)The pluripolar hull of a pluripolar set E in Pn is the intersection of all complete pluripolar sets in Pn that contain E. We prove that the pluripolar hull of each compact pluripolar set in Pn is F . The convergence set ... 
Point vortex model for asymmetric inviscid wakes past bluff bodies
(IOP Publishing, 20140527)Wakes past bluff bodies are modeled by means of point vortices standing in equilibrium. The consistency of the adopted model is discussed with respect to the asymptotic model proposed by Batchelor. It is shown that, in ...
