An Individual-Based Model Of Chaparral Vegetation Response To Frequent Wildfire, 2015 Pepperdine University

#### An Individual-Based Model Of Chaparral Vegetation Response To Frequent Wildfire, Timothy Lucas, Dayna Mann, Reanna Dona

*Undergraduate Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium*

In recent years, the Santa Monica Mountains (SMM) have been plagued by frequent wildfires which threaten the native chaparral species. Nonsprouting chaparral species are completely killed by a fire, but their seeds germinate in response to fire cues. Facultative sprouters both resprout after a wildfire and release seeds that germinate post-fire. This project is based on data collected since 1986 at a biological preserve adjacent to the Malibu campus of Pepperdine University with an average fire return interval of 7.5 years. We present a spatial model that simulates the growth, seed dispersal and resprouting behavior of individual shrubs that ...

Efficient General Computational Method For Estimation Of Standard Atmosphere Parameters, 2015 AAR Aerospace Consulting, LLC

#### Efficient General Computational Method For Estimation Of Standard Atmosphere Parameters, Nihad E. Daidzic Ph.D., Sc.D.

*International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace*

Knowledge of standard air temperature, pressure, density, speed of sound, and viscosity as a function of altitude is essential information in aircraft design, performance testing, pressure altimeter calibration, and several other aeronautical engineering and aviation science applications. A new efficient computational method for rapid calculations of standard atmospheric parameters up to 86 orthometric km is presented. Additionally, mass and weight of each standard atmospheric layer were calculated using a numerical integration method. The sum of all fractional masses and weights represents the total mass and weight of Earth’s atmosphere. The results obtained here agree well with measurements and models ...

A Contribution Toward Better Understanding Of Overbanking Tendency In Fixed-Wing Aircraft, 2015 AAR Aerospace Consulting, LLC

#### A Contribution Toward Better Understanding Of Overbanking Tendency In Fixed-Wing Aircraft, Nihad E. Daidzic

*Journal of Aviation Technology and Engineering*

The phenomenon of overbanking tendency for a rigid-body, fixed-wing aircraft is investigated. Overbanking tendency is defined as a spontaneous, unbalanced rolling moment that keeps increasing an airplane’s bank angle in steep turns and must be arrested by opposite aileron action. As stated by the Federal Aviation Administration, the overbanking tendency may lead to a loss of control, especially in instrument meteorological conditions. It was found in this study that the speed differential over wing halves in horizontal turns indeed creates a rolling moment that achieves maximum values for bank angles between 45 and 55 degrees. However, this induced rolling ...

Spontaneous Dimension Reduction And The Existence Of A Local Lagrange-Hamilton Formalism For Given N-Dimensional Newtonian Equations Of Motion, 2015 University of North Georgia

#### Spontaneous Dimension Reduction And The Existence Of A Local Lagrange-Hamilton Formalism For Given N-Dimensional Newtonian Equations Of Motion, Piotr W. Hebda, Beata A. Hebda

*Faculty Publications*

A partially explicit construction of a Lagrange-Hamiltonian formalism for an arbitrary n -dimensional Newtonian system of equations of motion is given. Additional variables used in the construction are spontaneously reduced by the Dirac’s constraints resulting from degeneracy of the proposed Lagrangian, so that only the variables that appear in the original system of equations remain. A Hamiltonian and dynamical Dirac’s brackets are calculated.

#### Belpatra (Aegel Marmelos) Bark Powder As An Adsorbent For The Color Removal Of Textile Dye “Torque Blue”, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Vandana Gupta, Anupam Agarwal, M. K. Singh

*Innovative Research Publications IRP India*

Adsorption is used as a potential method for the removal of color (dye) from industrial waste water. In this paper an easily available low cost Belpatra (Aegel marmelos) bark powder was used as an adsorbent for the removal of textile dye Torque Blue. For the present work several experiments were conducted at different adsorbent dosage, pH, temperature, dye concentration, particle size, and contact time in a batch adsorption mode. The experimental results revealed that maximum adsorption capacity of Belpatra bark powder on Torque blue dye was found to be 98% at an adsorbent dosage of 0.7gm in 100 ml ...

*Innovative Research Publications IRP India*

In 1856, Hamiltonian introduced the Hamiltonian Graph where a Graph which is covered all the vertices without repetition and end with starting vertex. In this paper I would like to prove that every Complete Graph ‘G’ having n ≥ 5 vertices, such that n is odd. If for all pairs of nonadjacent vertices u, v one has du + dv ≥ n − 2, then G has a Hamiltonian path.

Many computational problems are related to the model y = Ax + e, including compressive sensing, coding theory, dimensionality reduction, etc. The related algorithms are extremely useful in practical applications for high performance computing, for example, digital communications, biological imaging and data streaming, etc. This thesis studies two important problems. One problem is related to efficient decoding for Reed-Solomon codes over complex numbers. In this case, A and y are given, and the goal is to find an efficient stable algorithm to compute x. This is related to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The other problem is related to fast algorithms for projecting ...

Topological Data Analysis Of Biological Aggregation Models, 2015 Macalester College

#### Topological Data Analysis Of Biological Aggregation Models, Chad M. Topaz, Lori Ziegelmeier, Tom Halverson

*Chad M. Topaz*

We apply tools from topological data analysis to two mathematical models inspired by biological aggregations such as bird flocks, fish schools, and insect swarms. Our data consists of numerical simulation output from the models of Vicsek and D'Orsogna. These models are dynamical systems describing the movement of agents who interact via alignment, attraction, and/or repulsion. Each simulation time frame is a point cloud in position-velocity space. We analyze the topological structure of these point clouds, interpreting the persistent homology by calculating the first few Betti numbers. These Betti numbers count connected components, topological circles, and trapped volumes present ...

Minimax Portfolio Optimization Under Interval Uncertainty, 2015 Waseda University

#### Minimax Portfolio Optimization Under Interval Uncertainty, Meng Yuan, Xu Lin, Junzo Watada, Vladik Kreinovich

*Departmental Technical Reports (CS)*

In the 1950s, Markowitz proposed to combine different investment instruments to design a portfolio that either maximizes the expected return under constraints on volatility (risk) or minimizes the risk under given expected return. Markowitz's formulas are still widely used in financial practice. However, these formulas assume that we know the exact values of expected return and variance for each instrument, and that we know the exact covariance of every two instruments. In practice, we only know these values with some uncertainty. Often, we only know the bounds of these values -- i.e., in other words, we only know the ...
