81. 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 ...

82. 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 ...

83. 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 ...

84. 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 ...

85. 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 ...

86. 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 ...

87. 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 ...

88. Maximum Entropy and Time-Domain Kramers-Kronig Phase Retrieval Approaches are Functionally Equivalent for CARS Micro-Spectroscopy
Topic: Modeling
Published: 4/27/2012
Authors: Marcus T Cicerone, Khaled A. Aamer, Young Jong Lee, Eric Vartiainen
Abstract: Phase retrieval methods are used to recover Raman spectra from multiplex and broadband CARS signals. Two methods are in widespread use, one based on maximum entropy (MEM), and one based on a modified time-domain Kramers-Kronig (TDKK) method. He ...

89. Measuring the Utility/Path Diversity Tradeoff in Multipath Protocols
Topic: Modeling
Published: 10/20/2009
Authors: Fern Y Hunt, Vladimir V Marbukh
Abstract: We derive a model of congestion control where the trade-off between utility and path diversity can be investigated. In a network where there can be multiple routes between locations, each source is assigned a route according to a random allocation s ...

90. Melting Point Equations for the Ternary System Water/Sodium Chloride/Ethylene Glycol Revisited
Topic: Modeling
Published: 12/1/2010
Authors: James D. Benson, Aniruddha Bagchi, Xu Han, John K Critser, Erik J Woods
Abstract: Partial phase diagrams are of considerable utility in the development of optimized cryobiological procedures. Recent theoretical predictions of the melting points of ternary solutions of interest to cryobiology have caused us to re-examine measurment ...
