  • An adaptive multiresolution ultra-weak discontinuous Galerkin method for nonlinear Schrödinger equations 

    Tao, Zhanjing; Huang, Juntao; Liu, Yuan; Guo, Wei; Cheng, Yingda (Springer, 2021-01-25)
    This paper develops a high-order adaptive scheme for solving nonlinear Schrödinger equations. The solutions to such equations often exhibit solitary wave and local structures, which make adaptivity essential in improving ...
  • Series representations and simulations of isotropic random fields in the Euclidean space 

    Ma, Z.; Ma C. (American Mathematical Society, 2021-12-07)
    This paper introduces the series expansion for homogeneous, isotropic and mean square continuous random fields in the Euclidean space, which involves the Bessel function and the ultraspherical polynomial, but differs from ...
  • Ages of main-sequence turnoff stars from the GALAH survey 

    Chen, Xunzhou; Ge, Zhishuai; Chen, Yuqin; Bi, Shaolan; Yu, Jie; Yang, Wuming; Ferguson, Jason W.; Wu, Yaqian; Li, Yaguang (American Astronomical Society, 2022-04-01)
    Main-sequence turnoff (MSTO) stars are good tracers of Galactic populations since their ages can be reliably estimated from atmospheric parameters. Based on the GALAH survey, we use the Yale rotation evolution code to ...
  • Scalar and vector tomography for the weighted transport equation with application to helioseismology 

    Thompson, Nathan L.; Bukhgeym, Alexander L. (De Gruyter Open Ltd, 2022-04-08)
    Motivated by the application to helioseismology, we demonstrate uniqueness and stability for a class of inverse problems of the weighted transport equation. Using A-analytic functions, this inverse problem is expressed as ...

    Huang, Juntao; Liu, Yong; Liu, Yuan; Tao, Zhanjing; Cheng, Yingda (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Publications, 2022-03-29)
    In this paper, we propose a class of adaptive multiresolution (also called the adaptive sparse grid) ultra-weak discontinuous Galerkin (UWDG) methods for solving some nonlinear dispersive wave equations including the ...

    The synchrosqueezing transform (SST) and its variants have been developed recently as an alternative to the empirical mode decomposition scheme to model a non-stationary signal as a superposition of amplitude- and ...

    Abed Abud, Adam.; Abi, B.; Acciarri, R.; Meyer, Holger; Muether, Matthew; Solomey, Nickolas (IOP Publishing, 2022-01-04)
    The ProtoDUNE-SP detector is a single-phase liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) that was constructed and operated in the CERN North Area at the end of the H4 beamline. This detector is a prototype for the first ...
  • Some constructions of formally self-adjoint conformally covariant polydifferential operators 

    Case, Jeffrey; Lin, Yueh-Ju; Yuan, Wei (Elsevier, 2022-03-10)
    We introduce the notion of formally self-adjoint conformally covariant polydifferential operators and give some constructions of families of such operators. In one direction, we show that any homogeneous conformally ...
  • Deformations of Q-curvature II 

    Lin, Yueh-Ju; Yuan, Wei (Springer, 2022-02-11)
    This is the second article of a sequence of research on deformations of Q-curvature. In the previous one, we studied local stability and rigidity phenomena of Q-curvature. In this article, we mainly investigate the volume ...
  • Bayesian variable selection and estimation in quantile regression using a quantile-specific prior 

    Dao, Mai; Wang, Min; Ghosh, Souparno; Ye, Keying (Springer Science and Business Media Deutschland GmbH, 2022-01-19)
    Asymmetric Laplace (AL) specification has become one of the ideal statistical models for Bayesian quantile regression. In addition to fast convergence of Markov Chain Monte Carlo, AL specification guarantees posterior ...
  • Torus actions, maximality, and non-negative curvature 

    Escher, Christine; Searle, Catherine (De Gruyter, 2021-09-03)
    Let $ℳ_0^n$ be the class of closed, simply connected, non-negatively curved Riemannian n-manifolds admitting an isometric, effective, isotropy-maximal torus action. We prove that if $M \in ℳ_0^n$ then M is equivariantly ...

    DeLillo, Thomas K.; Mears, Justin Laurence; Silva-Trujillo, Arelis (Elsevier, 2021-08)
