151. Onset of Convection in Binary Liquid Layers
Topic: Math
Published: 3/24/2010
Authors: Geoffrey B McFadden, Sam Ray Coriell, Aaron Lott
Abstract: We perform linear stability calculations for horizontal bilayers of a two-component fluid that can undergo a phase transformation, taking into account both buoyancy effects and thermocapillary effects in the presence of a vertical temperature gradien ...

152. Optimality Conditions for a Hierarchical Control Problem Governed by a PDE
Topic: Math
Published: 11/15/2011
Author: Anthony J Kearsley
Abstract: We consider the approximate pointwise control of a linear parabolic system with multiple targets. Assuming a hierarchy among the objectives, we derive optimality conditions for a particular test problem and provide numerical results.

153. Parallel Programming with Interoperable MPI
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: William L George, John G Hagedorn, J E Devaney
Abstract: In this article we describe IMPI (Interoperable Message Passing Interface), a message passing protocol that allows you to easily run parallel programs across multiple clusters, SMPs (symmetric multiprocessors), parallel machines, personal computers, ...

154. Parallel and Serial Implementations of SLI Arithmetic
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5660
Topic: Math
Published: 6/1/1995
Authors: Daniel W Lozier, P R Turner

155. Performance Measurements for Evaluating Static and Dynamic Multiple Human Detection and Tracking Systems in Unstructured Environments
Topic: Math
Published: 6/30/2010
Authors: Bodt Bodt, Richard Camden, Harry A. Scott, Adam S Jacoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Tommy Chang, Richard J Norcross, Anthony J Downs, Ann M Virts
Abstract: The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance (CTA) conducted an assessment and evaluation of multiple algorithms for real-time detection of pedestrians in Laser Detection and Ranging (LADAR) and video sensor data take ...

156. Pose of I-Beams for Construction Site Automation
Topic: Math
Published: 9/21/2004
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Geraldine S Cheok, Alan M. (Alan M.) Lytle
Abstract: Automation of construction processes can result in reduced project costs and increased worker safety. A process that lends itself to automation is the picking and placing of objects. However, determining the pose (position and orientation) of an ob ...

157. Practical Near-Collisions for Reduced Round Blake, Fugue, Hamsi and JH
Topic: Math
Published: 8/23/2010
Authors: Meltem Sonmez Turan, Erdener Uyan
Abstract: A hash function is near-collision resistant, if it is hard to find two messages with hash values that differ in only small number of bits. In this study, we used hill climbing methods to find near-collisions for some of the second round SHA-3 candida ...

158. Precession Axis Modification to a Semi-analytical Landau-Lifshitz Solution Technique
Topic: Math
Published: 2/25/2008
Authors: Donald G Porter, Michael J Donahue
Abstract: A recent article [1] presents a semianalytical method to solve the Landau Lifshitz (LL) equation. Spin motion is computed analytically as precession about the effective field H, where H is assumed fixed over the time step. However, the exchange field ...

159. Predicted Functions of MdmX in Fine Tuning the Response of p53 to DNA Damage
Topic: Math
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Sohyoung Kim, Mirit I Aladjem, Geoffrey B McFadden, Kurt W Kohn
Abstract: Tumor suppressor protein p53 is negatively regulated by two structurally homologous proteins, Mdm2 and MdmX. In contrast to Mdm2, MdmX lacks ubiquitin ligase activity. Although the essential interactions of MdmX are known, it is not clear how they fu ...

160. Quadratic Fermionic Interactions Yield Hamiltonians with Large Ground-state Energy Gaps
Topic: Math
Published: 3/24/2009
Authors: Dianne M O'Leary, Michael J. O'Hara
Abstract: Polynomially-large ground-state energy gaps are rare in many-body quantum systems, but required for adiabatic quantum computing. We show analytically that the gap is generically polynomially-large for quadratic fermionic Hamiltonians, first conside ...
