71. Generalizations of generating functions for hypergeometric orthogonal polynomials with definite integrals
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/30/2013
Authors: Howard S Cohl, Connor M. MacKenzie
Abstract: We generalize generating functions for hypergeometric orthogonal polynomials, namely Jacobi, Gegenbauer, Laguerre, and Wilson polynomials. These generalizations of generating functions are accomplished through series rearrangement using connection re ...

72. Hybrid shape descriptor and meta similarity generation for non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval
Topic: Modeling
Published: 7/26/2013
Author: Afzal A Godil
Abstract: Non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval are two significant and challenging research directions in the field of 3D model retrieval. Little work has been done in proposing a hybrid shape descriptor that works for both retrieval scenarios, let alone ...

73. In Search of Enhanced Electrolyte Materials: A Case Study of Doubly Doped Ceria
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/28/2011
Authors: Pratik Dholabhai, James B. Adams, Peter A. Crozier, Renu Sharma
Abstract: Various compositions of gadolinium-praseodymium doubly doped ceria (GPDC) have been studied to appreciate the effect of two co-dopants in enhancing the ionic conductivity. A Kinetic Lattice Monte Carlo (KLMC) model of vacancy diffusion in GPDC has be ...

74. Integral Operators and Delay Differential Equations
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/1/2006
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Florian A Potra
Abstract: We begin this expository essay by reviewing with examples what a typical engineer already knows about statistics. We then consider a central question in engineering decision making, i.e., given a computer simulation of high-consequence systems, how ...

75. LDPC Error Correction in the Context of Quantum Key Distribution
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/23/2012
Author: Anastase Nakassis
Abstract: Secret keys can be established through the use of Quantum channels monitored through classical channels which can be thought of as being error free. Because many of the feasible implementation of the quantum channel are subject to erasures ‹often mas ...

76. Light a Single Candle: Studying Supernovae
Topic: Modeling
Published: 3/1/2012
Authors: Dianne M O'Leary, Bert W Rust
Abstract: At peak luminosity, Type Ia supernovae can be even brighter than their parent galaxies, and their light curves display a very uniform and regular behavior. This makes them excellent candidates for a role as standard candles in measuring the distance ...

77. Limits in Modeling Power Grid Topology
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/29/2013
Author: Brian Dale Cloteaux
Abstract: Because of their importance to infrastructure, a number of studies have examined the structural properties of power grids and have proposed random topological models of them. We examine the ability to create generalized models of power grid structure ...

78. Markov Chain Analysis for Large-Scale Grid Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7566
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/20/2009
Authors: Christopher E Dabrowski, Fern Y Hunt
Abstract: In large-scale grid systems with decentralized control, the interactions of many service providers and consumers will likely lead to emergent global system behaviours that result in unpredictable, often detrimental outcomes. This possibility argues f ...

79. Matching Observed Alpha Helix Lengths to Predicted Secondary Structure
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/11/2010
Author: Brian Dale Cloteaux
Abstract: Because of the complexity in determining the 3D structure of a protein, the use of partial information determined from experimental techniques can greatly reduce the overall computational expense. We investigate the problem of matching experimentally ...

80. Mathematical Model Formulation and Validation of Water and Cryoprotective Agent Transport in Whole Hamster Pancreatic Islets
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/11/2011
Authors: James D. Benson, Charles T Benson, John K Critser
Abstract: A mathematical and conceptual model of water and solute transport for whole hamster pancreatic islets has been developed and experimentally validated incorporating fundamental biophysical data from previous studies on individual hamster islet cells ...
