Critical Dynamics Of Nonconserved Ising-Like Systems, K. E. Bassler, Beate Schmittmann Dec 1994

Critical Dynamics Of Nonconserved Ising-Like Systems, K. E. Bassler, Beate Schmittmann

Beate Schmittmann

We show that the dynamical fixed point of Ising-like models, characterized by a single scalar, nonconserved ordering field, is stable near four dimensions with respect to all dynamic perturbations, including those of a nonequilibrium nature.

Energy spectra for intermediate mass fragments produced in central Au + Au collisions at EA=100 MeV indicate a collective expansion at breakup. For the first time, values for this collective expansion energy per nucleon are extracted independently for each charge. Typically, these values are one-third to one-half of the incident kinetic energy per nucleon in the c.m. system, but they decrease with Zf, suggesting that all fragments do not participate equally in the collective expansion.


Quo Vadis-A Framework For Intelligent Routing In Large Communication Networks., Armin Mikler, Johnny S. Wong, Vasant Honavar Dec 1994

Quo Vadis-A Framework For Intelligent Routing In Large Communication Networks., Armin Mikler, Johnny S. Wong, Vasant Honavar

Computer Science Technical Reports

This paper presents Quo Vadis, an evolving framework for intelligent traffic management in very large communication networks. Quo Vadis is designed to exploit topological properties of large networks as well as their spatio-temporal dynamics to optimize multiple performance criteria through cooperation among nodes in the network. It employs a distributed representation of network state information using local load measurements supplemented by a less precise global summary. Routing decisions in Quo Vadis are based on parameterized heuristics designed to optimize various performance metrics in an anticipatory or pro-active as well as compensatory or reactive mode and to minimize the overhead associated ...

Parametric Micro-Level Performance Models For Parallel Computing, Youngtae Kim, Mark Fienup, Jeffrey S. Clary, Suresh C. Kothari Dec 1994

Parametric Micro-Level Performance Models For Parallel Computing, Youngtae Kim, Mark Fienup, Jeffrey S. Clary, Suresh C. Kothari

Computer Science Technical Reports

Parametric micro-level (PM) performance models are introduced to address the important issue of how to realistically model parallel performance. These models can be used to predict execution times, identify performance bottlenecks, and compare machines. The accurate prediction and analysis of execution times is achieved by incorporating precise details of interprocessor communication, memory operations, auxiliary instructions, and effects of communication and computation schedules. Parameters are used for flexibility to study various algorithmic and architectural issues. The development and verification process, parameters and the scope of applicability of these models are discussed. A coherent view of performance is obtained from the execution ...

Faculty Publications

Intermediate mass fragment (IMF: 3≤Z≤20 emission from necklike structures joining projectilelike and targetlike residues has been observed for peripheral Xe129 + Cunat collisions at EA=50 MeV. These fragments are emitted primarily at velocities between those of the projectilelike and targetlike residues. Relative to the charge distribution of fragments evaporated from projectilelike residues, the distribution for "neck" emission shows an enhanced emission for fragments with 4≤ZIMF≤12. This feature is consistent with expectations for the fragmentation of a noncompact cylindrical configuration.

Kinetics Of Clustering In Traffic Flows, E. Ben-Naim, P. L. Krapivsky, S. Redner Dec 1994

Kinetics Of Clustering In Traffic Flows, E. Ben-Naim, P. L. Krapivsky, S. Redner

Eli Ben-Naim

We study a simple aggregation model that mimics the clustering of traffic on a one-lane roadway. In this model, each ``car'' moves ballistically at its initial velocity until it overtakes the preceding car or cluster. After this encounter, the incident car assumes the velocity of the cluster which it has just joined. The properties of the initial distribution of velocities in the small velocity limit control the long-time properties of the aggregation process. For an initial velocity distribution with a power-law tail at small velocities, $\pvim$ as $v \to 0$, a simple scaling argument shows that the average cluster size ...


Low-Energy Differential Scattering Of Electrons And Positrons From Noble Gases, David D. Reid, J. M. Wadehra Dec 1994

Low-Energy Differential Scattering Of Electrons And Positrons From Noble Gases, David D. Reid, J. M. Wadehra

Physics and Astronomy Faculty Research Publications

Calculations of cross sections for electron (e) and positron (e+) scattering from ground-state He, Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe at projectile energies below the lowest inelastic thresholds are presented. The main focus in the present work is on the differential cross sections, since angular distributions depend sensitively on the choice of interaction potentials used in the calculations. A part of the interaction potential used in the calculations includes a parameter-free correlation-polarization potential which is (a) based on physical ideas of what a correlation-polarization potential should be, (b) different for various target gases, and (c) distinct for electron and positron scattering ...

Optical-Fiber Preamplifiers For Ladar Detection And Associated Measurements For Improving The Signal-To-Noise Ratio, Michael S. Salisbury, Paul F. Mcmanamon, Bradley D. Duncan Dec 1994

Optical-Fiber Preamplifiers For Ladar Detection And Associated Measurements For Improving The Signal-To-Noise Ratio, Michael S. Salisbury, Paul F. Mcmanamon, Bradley D. Duncan

Electro-Optics and Photonics Faculty Publications

In an effort to increase achievable postdetection signal-tonoise ratios (SNRs) of continuous-wave, 1-gm all-solid-state ladar systems, a prototype rare-earth-doped optical-fiber amplifier has been included in the optical return signal path of both a heterodyne and a directdetection ladar system. We provide numerical predictions for SNR increases according to our previously developed theory. We also detail our experimental efforts and provide the results of SNR measurements for four distinct cases: direct ladar detection with and without a fiber amplifier, and heterodyne ladar detection with and without a fiber amplifier. Experimentally measured increases in SNRs for ladar systems incorporating an optical-fiber amplifier ...

Square Roots Of Finite Groups - Ii, Matthew Devos, David Mcadams, Rebecca Rapoport Dec 1994

Square Roots Of Finite Groups - Ii, Matthew Devos, David Mcadams, Rebecca Rapoport

Mathematical Sciences Technical Reports (MSTR)

A subset R of a finite group G is a square root of G if R2 = G. If R is a square root of G for which |R|2 = G, then R is referred to as a perfect square root of G. It can be shown using character theory that perfect square roots do not exist. The purpose of this paper is to work toward an elementary proof of this result.


Distinct Products Of Triples In Finite Groups, Curtis Z. Mitchell Dec 1994

Distinct Products Of Triples In Finite Groups, Curtis Z. Mitchell

Mathematical Sciences Technical Reports (MSTR)

Let G be a finite group and let Di(G) be the proportion of triples ( x , y , z ) of elements in G such that the cardinality of { xyz , xzy , yxz, yzx , zxy , zyx } is i. In this paper we show that:

i) The average value of Di is either 1 or at least 53/32.

ii) D2= 0 ==> D3 = D4 = D5 = D6 = 0;

iii) D3= 0 ==> D4 = D5 = 0

Nutrient Use Efficiency: An Ecological Approach, Cynthia A. Cambardella Dec 1994

Nutrient Use Efficiency: An Ecological Approach, Cynthia A. Cambardella

Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference

The practice of agriculture by humankind intentionally disturbs the nutrient and energy balance (especially Nand C) of natural ecological systems to produce the food, feed, and fiber needed to sustain human activities. These disturbed ecological systems are generally referred to as agroecosystems. A sustainable agroecosystem is one managed for the long-term profitable production of food, feed, or fiber while utilizing the full potential of biological, chemical and physical processes to conserve natural resources and minimize environmental damage (Elliott et al., 1993). Low nutrient-use efficiency is a major factor contributing to the non-sustainability of agroecosystems. To improve efficiency, a more complete ...

Site Specific Management: The Pros, The Cons, And The Realities, F. J. Pierce, P. C. Robert, G. Mangold

Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference

Site specific management (SSM) for agriculture involves the variable management of soils and crops according to localized conditions within a field. Known by many other names, such as "Grid Farming", "Farming by Soils" or "Variable Rate Technology (VRT), SSM is a rapidly emerging set of technologies that allow farmers to manage their soils and crops on-the-go as equipment moves across a field. In essence, SSM is about doing the right thing, at the right time, in the right place, in the right way. Thus, SSM is intuitively appealing because it represents a means of improving the economic and environmental performance ...


Grid Soil Sampling For Precision And Profit, N. C. Wollenhaupt, R. P. Wolkowski Dec 1994

Grid Soil Sampling For Precision And Profit, N. C. Wollenhaupt, R. P. Wolkowski

Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference

Site specific management of plant nutrients for crop production begins with an inventory of soil test levels in a field. Fertilizer recommendations are based on the expected response to addition of fertilizers as a function of soil test levels. Therefore, the accuracy of site specific fertilizer applications depends on how accurately the nutrient status of soils is mapped. Mapping accuracy usually increases as fields are divided and sampled as smaller areas.
