    • Learning quantum annealing 

      Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Steck, James E.; Moustafa, Mohamed A. (Rinton Press, Inc., 2017-05-01)
      We propose and develop a new procedure, whereby a quantum system can learn to anneal to a desired ground state. We demonstrate successful learning to produce an entangled state for a two-qubit system, then demonstrate ...
    • Linear stability of Hill's vortex to axisymmetric perturbations 

      Protas, Bartosz; Elcrat, Alan R. (Cambridge University Press, 2016-07)
      We consider the linear stability of Hill's vortex with respect to axisymmetric perturbations. Given that Hill's vortex is a solution of a free-boundary problem, this stability analysis is performed by applying methods of ...
    • Linearized inverse Schrödinger potential problem at a large wavenumber

      The logistic vector random field is introduced in this paper as a scale mixture of Gaussian vector random fields, and is thus a particular elliptically contoured (spherically invariant) vector random field. Such a logistic ...

      The sensitivity of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) to neutrino oscillation is determined, based on a full simulation, reconstruction, and event selection of the far detector and a full simulation and ...
    • Machine learning applied to programming quantum computers 

      Steck, James E.; Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Thompson, Nathan L. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2019-01-06)
      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 ...

      Ababneh, Faisal; Jermiin, Lars S.; Ma, Chunsheng; Robinson, John (Oxford University Press, 2006-05-15)
      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 ...

      The fixed-target 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 neutrino-induced neutral-current coherent $π^0$ production in the NOvA near detector 

      Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2020-07-09)
      The cross section of neutrino-induced neutral-current coherent $\pi^0$ production on a carbon-dominated target is measured in the NOvA near detector. This measurement uses a narrow-band neutrino beam with an average neutrino ...

      Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2017-04-10)
      This Letter reports new results on muon neutrino disappearance from NOvA, using a 14 kton detector equivalent exposure of $6.05\times10^{20}$ protons-on-target from the NuMI beam at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. ...
    • Metrics of positive scalar curvature and generalised Morse functions, part II 

      Walsh, Mark (American Mathematical Society, 2014-01)
      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 ...

    • Models for inviscid wakes past a normal plate 

      Elcrat, Alan R.; Zannetti, L. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-10-10)
      Closed and open hollow wakes are considered as analytic models for the two-dimensional inviscid steady flow past a plate normal to the stream. It is shown that only open configurations which satisfy the Kutta condition ...
