    • A pair of stationary stochastic processes with application to Wichita temperature data 

      Li, Qi (Wichita State University, 2010-08)
      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 

      Samarakoon, Bathiya (Wichita State University, 2019-05)
      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 

      Wang, Fangfang; Ma, Chunsheng (Elsevier, 2018-12)
      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 

      El Barmi, Hammou; Mukerjee, Hari (Elsevier, 2012-05-10)
      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 

      Rinker, Patrick (Wichita State University, 2015-07)
      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 ...
    • Pellet ablation in tokamak reactors 

      Rinker, Patrick (Wichita State University. Graduate School., 2012-04-18)
      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 ...
    • Penalized splines fitting for a poisson response including outliers 

      Kilinc, Betul Kan; Asfha, Huruy Debessay (Pakistan Journal of Statistics and Operation Research, 2019-12-07)
      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 Mg-Al anticorrelation 

      Cassisi, Santi; Mucciarelli, Alessio; Pietrinferni, Adeiano; Salaris, Maurizio; Ferguson, Jason W. (EDP Sciences S A, 2013-06)
      We have computed low-mass stellar models and synthetic spectra for an initial chemical composition that includes the full C-N, O-Na, and Mg-Al abundance anticorrelations observed in second-generation stars belonging to a ...
    • Planar-temporal stationary correlation models that depend on the maximum norm 

      Ma, Chunsheng (IEEE, 2007-03)
      It is useful to have various stochastic models to describe a wide range of spatial or spatio-temporal dependence and interaction. Two families of planar-temporal stationary correlation functions are proposed in this ...
    • Pluripolar hulls and convergence sets 

      Chen, Juan (Wichita State University, 2018-05)
      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 

      Elcrat, Alan R.; Ferlauto, M.; Zannetti, L. (IOP Publishing, 2014-05-27)
      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 ...
    • Pole placement by linear quadratic modification for continuous time systems 

      Rousan, N. S.; Sawan, M. Edwin (IEEE, 1991-06-26)
      This paper bridges the gap between linear quadratic solution and pole placement providing a simple criterion sucht that the resulting optimal gain places the closed loop eigenvalues at desired locations. The method has the ...
    • Polycircular domains, numerical conformal mappings, and moduli of quadrilaterals 

      Nasser, Mohamed; Rainio, Oona; Rasila, Antti; Vuorinen, Matti; Wallace, Terry; Yu, Hang; Zhang, Xiaohui (Springer Link, 2022-08-10)
      We study numerical conformal mappings of planar Jordan domains with boundaries consisting of fnitely many circular arcs, also called polycircular domains, and compute the moduli of quadrilaterals for these domains. ...
    • Positive (p, n)-intermediate scalar curvature and Gromov-Lawson cobordism 

      Burkemper, Matthew Bryan (Wichita State University, 2021-08)
      In this thesis we consider a well known construction due to Gromov, Lawson, and Gajer which allows for the extension of a metric of positive scalar curvature over the trace of a surgery in codimension at least 3 to a ...
