  • Increasing stability in acoustic and elastic inverse source problems 

    Entekhabi, Mozhgan (Nora); Isakov, Victor, 1947- (SIAM Publ, 2020-10-22)
    We study increasing stability in the inverse scattering source problem for the Helmholtz equation and the classical Lamé system in the three dimensional space from boundary data at multiple wave numbers. As additional data ...
  • Stability and the inverse gravimetry problem with minimal data 

    Isakov, Victor, 1947-; Titi, Aseel (e Gruyter Open Ltd, 2020-10-11)
    The inverse problem in gravimetry is to find a domain ð • inside the reference domain ω from boundary measurements of gravitational force outside ω. We found that about five parameters of the unknown ð • can be stably ...
  • Xunzi: Moral education and transformation 

    Lu, Xiufen (Routledge, 2020-11-08)
    A fair amount of recent Xunzi scholarship has focused on the problem of moral transformation. The problem being addressed supposedly arises this way. According to Xunzi, human nature is innately or inherently evil; ...
  • Experimental pairwise entanglement estimation for an N-qubit system: a machine learning approach for programming quantum hardware 

    Thompson, Nathan L.; Nguyen, Nam H.; Behrman, Elizabeth C.; Steck, James E. (Springer, 2020-11-03)
    Designing and implementing algorithms for medium- and large-scale quantum computers is not easy. In the previous work, we have suggested, and developed, the idea of using machine learning techniques to train a quantum ...
  • The Genius of the 'Original Imitation Game' Test 

    Sterrett, Susan G. (Springer, 2020-10-29)
    Twenty years ago in "Turing's Two Tests for Intelligence" I distinguished two distinct tests to be found in Alan Turing's 1950 paper "Computing Machinery and Intelligence": one by then very well-known, the other neglected. ...
  • Zeami’s Reply to Plato: Mastering the Art of Sarugaku 

    Castro, Susan V. H. (Japan Studies Association, 2018-05-31)
    Mae Smethurst’s work has largely aimed to articulate nō theater in Western terms from their early roots, primarily through Aristotle’s On Tragedy. Her detailed examination of the shared structure of the content of these ...
  • Structure-guided optimization of dipeptidyl inhibitors of Norovirus 3CL protease 

    Rathnayake, Athri D.; Kim, Yunjeong; Dampalla, Chamandi S.; Nguyen, Harry Nhat; Jesri, Abdul Rahman M.; Kashipathy, Maithri M.; Lushington, Gerald Henry; Battaile, Kevin P.; Lovell, Scott; Chang, Kyeong-Ok; Groutas, William C. (American Chemical Society, 2020-09-18)
    Acute gastroenteritis caused by noroviruses has a major impact on public health worldwide in terms of morbidity, mortality, and economic burden. The disease impacts most severely immunocompromised patients, the elderly, ...
  • Comparison of night vision technology for close-quarters combat operations: how field of view impacts live-fire scenarios 

    Hamilton, Joseph A.; Roush, Grant J.; Kinney, Micah J.; Suss, Joel M.; Biggs, Adam T. (Springer, 2020-10-24)
    As early as the Vietnam War, the United States Military has employed various forms of night vision goggles (NVGs) to enhance warfighter capability under low light conditions. In recent years, the most common form of NVGs ...
  • Supernova neutrino detection in NOvA 

    Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2020-10-05)
    The NOvA long-baseline neutrino experiment uses a pair of large, segmented, liquid-scintillator calorimeters to study neutrino oscillations, using GeV-scale neutrinos from the Fermilab NuMI beam. These detectors are also ...
  • Almost non-negatively curved 4-manifolds with torus symmetry 

    Harvey, John; Searle, Catherine (American Mathematical Society, 2020-08-14)
    We prove that if a closed, smooth, simply-connected 4-manifold with a circle action admits an almost non-negatively curved sequence of invariant Riemannian metrics, then it also admits a non-negatively curved Riemannian ...
  • Human rights attitude and civic engagement behavior among university students 

    Kwon, Ilan; Lee, Jaewon; Cummings, Cristy E.; Shamrova, Daria P.; Macomber, Catherine A.; Milanovic, Edita; Woodward, Amanda Toler; Hughes, Anne K. (Springer, 2020-06-23)
    Although civic engagement and human rights are critical values in social work education, few empirical studies have explored the association between civic engagement and human rights exposure and attitudes. This study aims ...
  • A council circle at etzanoa? Multi-sensor drone survey at an ancestral Wichita settlement in southeastern Kansas 

    Casana, Jesse; Laugier, Elise Jakoby; Hill, Austin Chad; Blakeslee, Donald J. (Cambridge University Press, 2020-10)
    This article presents results of a multi-sensor drone survey at an ancestral Wichita archaeological site in southeastern Kansas, originally recorded in the 1930s and believed by some scholars to be the location of historical ...
  • Comparing motor competence of sex-and age-matched youth with intellectual disability from Brazil and the United States

    In this paper, we propose a class of adaptive multiresolution (also called adaptive sparse grid) discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for simulating scalar wave equations in second order form in space. The two key ingredients ...
  • More isn’t always better: when metacognitive prompts are misleading 

    Vangsness, Lisa; Young, Michael E. (Springer, 2020-09-29)
