An Investigation Of Gas Bubble Generation And Measurement In Water And Mercury, 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

#### An Investigation Of Gas Bubble Generation And Measurement In Water And Mercury, Stuart A Walker

*Masters Theses*

The pressure increase attributed to the energy deposition in the liquid metal target of the Spallation Neutron Source results in cavitation and pitting erosion of the target pressure boundary. Introducing compressibility in the form of small gas bubbles will extend the lifetime of the target vessel. The pressure rise caused by the beam energy deposition occurs in one microsecond, which encourages use of bubbles of radius less than 20 microns, such that the bubble response to pressure change is adequately fast. Gas volume fraction near 0.5% is sufficient to accommodate the mercury volumetric expansion and reduce the pressure rise ...

The Four-Color Theorem And Chromatic Numbers Of Graphs, 2010 Lynchburg College

#### The Four-Color Theorem And Chromatic Numbers Of Graphs, Sarah E. Cates

*Undergraduate Theses and Capstone Projects*

We study graph colorings of the form made popular by the four-color theorem. Proved by Appel and Haken in 1976, the Four-Color Theorem states that all planar graphs can be vertex-colored with at most four colors. We consider an alternate way to prove the Four-Color Theorem, introduced by Hadwiger in 1943 and commonly know as Hadwiger’s Conjecture. In addition, we examine the chromatic number of graphs which are not planar. More specifically, we explore adding edges to a planar graph to create a non-planar graph which has the same chromatic number as the planar graph which we started from.

The Security Printing Practices Of Banknotes, 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

#### The Security Printing Practices Of Banknotes, Corbin Nakamura

*Graphic Communication*

Counterfeit goods continue to undermine the value of genuine artifacts. This also applies to counterfeit banknotes, a significant counterfeit problem in today’s rapidly growing world of technology. The following research explores anti-counterfeit printing methods for banknotes from various countries and evaluates which are the most effective for eliminating counterfeit.

The research methods used in this study consists primarily of elite and specialized interviewing accompanied with content analysis. Three professionals currently involved in the security-printing industry were interviewed and provided the most current information about banknote security printing.

Conclusions were reached that the most effective security printing methods for banknotes ...

Software Internationalization: A Framework Validated Against Industry Requirements For Computer Science And Software Engineering Programs, 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

In 2001, the ACM and IEEE Computing Curriculum stated that it was necessary to address "the need to develop implementation models that are international in scope and could be practiced in universities around the world." With increasing connectivity through the internet, the move towards a global economy and growing use of technology places software internationalization as a more important concern for developers. However, there has been a "clear shortage in terms of numbers of trained persons applying for entry-level positions" in this area. Eric Brechner, Director of Microsoft ...

Chi-Square Lower Bounds, 2010 University of Pennsylvania

#### Chi-Square Lower Bounds, Mark G. Low

*Statistics Papers*

The information inequality has been shown to be an effective tool for providing lower bounds for the minimax risk. Bounds based on the chi-square distance can sometimes offer a considerable improvement especially when applied iteratively. This paper compares these two methods in four examples including the bounded normal mean problem as well as obervations from a Poisson distribution.

Nonparametric Regression In Natural Exponential Families, 2010 University of Pennsylvania

#### Nonparametric Regression In Natural Exponential Families, T. Tony Cai, Harrison H. Zhou

*Statistics Papers*

Theory and methodology for nonparametric regression have been particularly well developed in the case of additive homoscedastic Gaussian noise. Inspired by asymptotic equivalence theory, there have been ongoing efforts in recent years to construct explicit procedures that turn other function estimation problems into a standard nonparametric regression with Gaussian noise. Then in principle any good Gaussian nonparametric regression method can be used to solve those more complicated nonparametric models. In particular, Brown, Cai and Zhou [3] considered nonparametric regression in natural exponential families with a quadratic variance function.

In this paper we extend the scope of Brown, Cai and Zhou ...

#### Local Fractional Fourier’S Transform Based On The Local Fractional Calculus, Yang Xiao-Jun

*Xiao-Jun Yang*

A new modeling for the local fractional Fourier’s transform containing the local fractional calculus is investigated in fractional space. The properties of the local fractional Fourier’s transform are obtained and two examples for the local fractional systems are investigated in detail.

Measurement Of Single Spin Asymmetries In Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering Reaction N↑(E, Éπ+)X At Jefferson Lab, 2010 University of Kentucky

#### Measurement Of Single Spin Asymmetries In Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering Reaction N↑(E, Éπ+)X At Jefferson Lab, Kalyan C. Allada

*University of Kentucky Doctoral Dissertations*

What constitutes the spin of the nucleon? The answer to this question is still not completely understood. Although we know the longitudinal quark spin content very well, the data on the transverse quark spin content of the nucleon is still very sparse. Semi-inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) using transversely polarized targets provide crucial information on this aspect. The data that is currently available was taken with proton and deuteron targets.

The E06-010 experiment was performed at Jefferson Lab in Hall-A to measure the single spin asymmetries in the SIDIS reaction n^{↑}(e,éπ^{±}/K^{±})X using transversely polarized 3He target ...

Measurement Of Single-Target Spin Asymmetries In The Electroproduction Of Negative Pions In The Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Reaction N↑(E,Éπ¯)X On A Transversely Polarized 3he Target, 2010 University of Kentucky

#### Measurement Of Single-Target Spin Asymmetries In The Electroproduction Of Negative Pions In The Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Reaction N↑(E,Éπ¯)X On A Transversely Polarized 3he Target, Chiranjib Dutta

*University of Kentucky Doctoral Dissertations*

The experiment E06010 measured the target single spin asymmetry (SSA) in the semiinclusive deep inelastic (SIDIS) n↑(e,éπ¯)X reaction with a transversely polarized ^{3}He target as an effective neutron target. This is the very first independent measurement of the neutron SSA, following the measurements at HERMES and COMPASS on the proton and the deuteron. The experiment acquired data in Hall A at Jefferson Laboratory with a continuous electron beam of energy 5.9 GeV, probing the valence quark region, with *x* = 0.13→0.41, at *Q*^{2} = 1.31→3.1 GeV^{2}. The two contributing ...
