  • Well-balanced discontinuous Galerkin method for shallow water equations with constant subtraction techniques on unstructured meshes 

    Du, Huijing; Liu, Yingjie; Liu, Yuan; Xu, Zhiliang (Springer US, 2019-10)
    The classical Saint–Venant shallow water equations on complex geometries have wide applications in many areas including coastal engineering and atmospheric modeling. The main numerical challenge in simulating Saint–Venant ...
  • Algorithm for determining the volatility function in the Black–Scholes model

    Abstract: An algorithm for reconstructing the volatility function in the modified Black–Scholes model is developed. Results of numerical computations are presented. It is shown that adding information about the prices of ...
  • Models of parenting and its effect on academic productivity: Preliminary results from an international survey 

    Derrick, Gemma Elizabeth; Jaeger, Adam; Chen, Pei Ying; Sugimoto, Cassidy R.; van Leeuwen, Th N.; Larivière, Vincent (International Conference on Scientometrics and Informetrics, 2019-09)
    This preliminary paper investigates the cost of parenting engagement on academic productivity and impact. Instead of investigating the relationship between gender and academia, this study focuses on time invested in parenting ...
  • Geometry of the triple junction between three fluids in equilibrium 

    Blank, Ivan A.; Elcrat, Alan R.; Treinen, Ray (Texas State University, 2019-08-27)
    We present an approach to the problem of the blow up at the triple junction of three uids in equilibrium. Although many of our results can already be found in the literature, our approach is almost self-contained and uses ...
  • Revisiting Kepler-444: I. Seismic modeling and inversions of stellar structure 

    Buldgen, Gaël; Farnir, M.; Pezzotti, C.; Eggenberger, Patrick; Salmon, Sébastien J.A.J.; Montalbán, Josefina; Ferguson, Jason W.; Khan, Saniya; Bourrier, Vincent; Rendle, Ben M.; Meynet, Georges; Miglio, Andxsrea; Noels, Arlette (EDP Sciences, 2019-10-03)
    Context. The CoRoT and Kepler missions have paved the way for synergies between exoplanetology and asteroseismology. The use of seismic data helps providing stringent constraints on the stellar properties which directly ...
  • On increasing stability of the continuation for elliptic equations of second order without (Pseudo)convexity assumptions 

    Isakov, Victor, 1947- (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2019-10)
    We derive bounds of solutions of the Cauchy problem for general elliptic partial differential equations of second order containing parameter (wave number) k which are getting nearly Lipschitz for large k. Proofs use energy ...
  • Series representations of isotropic vector random fields on balls 

    Lu, Tianshi; Leonenko, Nikolai N.; Ma, Chunsheng (Elsevier, 2020-01)
    This paper deals with a class of second-order vector random fields in the unit ball of Rd, whose direct/cross covariances are invariant or isotropic with respect to a distance defined on the ball, and gives a series ...
  • Machine learning applied to programming quantum computers 

    Steck, James E.; Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Thompson, Nathan (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 ...
  • Isotropic covariance matrix functions on compact two-point homogeneous spaces 

    Lu, Tianshi; Ma, Chunsheng (Springer, 2019)
    The covariance matrix function is characterized in this paper for a Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on the compact two-point homogeneous ...
  • Preface 

    Solomey, Nickolas (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2019-02)
    This is the 13th conference on Beauty, Charm and Hyperon hadrons since the start back in 1995 at Strasbourg. This edition of the series has taken place in the warm and welcoming sea-side of Peniche, Portugal. It was quite ...
  • Blocking duality for p-modulus on networks and applications 

    Albin, Nathan; Clemens, Jason R.; Fernando, Nethali; Poggi-Corradini, Pietro (Springer, 2019-06)
    This paper explores the implications of blocking dualitypioneered by Fulkerson et al.in the context of p-modulus on networks. Fulkerson blocking duality is an analog on networks to the method of conjugate families of curves ...
  • Conformally variational riemannian invariants 

    Case, Jeffrey S.; Lin, Yueh-Ju; Yuan, Wei (American Mathematical Society, 2019-06-01)
    Conformally variational Riemannian invariants (CVIs), such as the scalar curvature, are homogeneous scalar invariants which arise as the gradient of a Riemannian functional. We establish a wide range of stability and ...
  • Estimating cumulative incidence functions when the life distributions are constrained 

    Barmi E. Hammou; Johnson, Matthew; Mukerjee, Hari (Academic Press, 2010-05-5)
    In competing risks studies, the Kaplan-Meier estimators of the distribution functions (DFs) of lifetimes and the corresponding estimators of cumulative incidence functions (CIFs) are used widely when no prior information ...
  • A class of stationary random fields with a simple correlation structure 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Academic Press, 2004-07-15)
    A stationary random field is often more complicated than a univariate stationary time series, since dependence for a random field extends in all directions, while there is only the natural distinction of past and future ...
  • Application of the limit of truncated isotonic regression in optimization subject to isotonic and bounding constraints 

    Hu, Xiaomi (Academic Press Inc., 2002-05-25)
    An isotonic regression truncated by confining its domain to a union of its level sets is the isotonic regression in the reduced function space. When some of the weights with which the inner product system is defined go to ...
  • A strong law of large numbers for nonparametric regression 

    Mukerjee, Hari (Academic Press, 1989-07-1)
    Suppose (i1,n, ..., in,n) is permutation of (1, ..., n) for each positive integer n such that the order of the indices {1, h., n - 1} in the permutation corresponding to n - 1 is preserved. If {Zn} is a sequence of mean-zero ...
  • Singularity among selfsimilar Gaussian random fields with different scaling parameters and others 

    Ma, Chunsheng (Taylor & Francis, 2018-11-02)
    It is shown in this paper that the probability measures generated by selfsimilar Gaussian random fields are mutually singular, whenever they have different scaling parameters. So are those generated from a selfsimilar ...
  • K-differenced vector random fields 

    Alsultan, Rehab; Ma, Chunsheng (SIAM Publ., 2019)
    A thin-tailed vector random field, referred to as a K-differenced vector random field, is introduced. Its finite-dimensional densities are the differences of two Besse! functions of second order, whenever they exist, and ...

    Khanfer, Ammar; Bukhgeim, Alexander L. (De Gruyter, 2019-01-20)

    Hamdan, Mustafa; Hu, Xiaomi (Elsevier, 2019-05)
    In this paper a likelihood ratio test is developed through matrix projections for the hypothesis on the homogeneity of mean vectors in MANOVA. It is assumed that the mean vectors are under a general multivariate order ...
