Sales Management Portal, Mounika Mallepalli, Deepa Pasula

All Capstone Projects

In this project we are designing company’s sales pipeline database portal. This sales management portal plays very important role in any company, the profit and success of the company rely on sales management. This management portal holds the information of clients and their contact information, this information will useful to know the requirements and to make proposals with them. If these proposals approved by the manager then that proposal become a project to the company. This portal also enables the company manager to get up to date with their work progress, and gives updates to sales staff simultaneously. The ...

Synthesis Of Au/Ag, Pd/Ag And Pt/Ag Nanoparticles By Galvanic Replacement Reaction, Sunnith Kumar Admala 2017 Governors State University

Synthesis Of Au/Ag, Pd/Ag And Pt/Ag Nanoparticles By Galvanic Replacement Reaction, Sunnith Kumar Admala

All Capstone Projects

In recent years, galvanic replacement reactions have been successfully employed to produce bimetallic nanoparticles of a range of shapes, yet to date very few efforts have been devoted to develop methods for synthesizing smaller (<10nm) M/Ag; M=Au, Pt, Pd alloy particles using Ag hollow particles as sacrificial template. In this research work, we investigated new approach for the controllable synthesis of Au/Ag, Pd/Ag, and Pt/Ag alloy nanoparticles by applying galvanic replacement reaction on hollow Ag template in the presence of gold, palladium, and platinum salts. According to TEM analysis, the sizes of Au/Ag, Pd/Ag, and Pt/Ag alloy particle are 7.0±1.6 nm, 6.0±1.2 nm, and 3.0±0.8 nm, respectively. According to the study of optical property measurements on Ag hollow samples with increasing Au, Pt, and Pd content, it was observed that surface plasmon resonance peaks of the Au/Ag particles prepared with higher concentrated HAuCl4 solutions absorb at longer wavelengths and are red-shifted compared to the surface plasmon resonance of Ag hollow template. In the case of adding K2PdCl4 to Ag hollow sample resulted in blue shift of surface Plasmon resonance peaks for initial addition of palladium salt and further addition of K2PdCl4 caused the Plasmon peaks to diminish. Interestingly, our attempt to make Pt/Ag particle by reacting Ag hollow particles with various amounts of K2PtCl4 revealed that resulting alloy particles could still exhibit surface Plasmon resonance peaks for higher Pt content. Usually Pt and Pd nanoparticles do not exhibit surface plasmon resonance peaks in the visible spectrum. This work provides a model for a design of M/Ag; M=Au, Pt, Pd alloy particles, where combining Ag hollow samples with increasing amounts of Au, Pt, and Pd can provide successful execution of tenability of surface plasmon resonance.


1999 - Water Resources And Land Use Change In Salinas Valley, Watershed Institute Report No. Wi-1999-01, 2017 California State University, Monterey Bay

1999 - Water Resources And Land Use Change In Salinas Valley, Watershed Institute Report No. Wi-1999-01

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

The 1999 report prepared by Fred Watson, Lars Pierce, Mel Mulitsch, Wendi Newman, Adrian Rocha, Mark Fain and Jodiah Nelson of the Watershed Institute, describes the progress made toward the use of computer modeling to provide both understanding and predictive capability. The Salinas River watershed of over 11,000 square kilometers supports large areas of intensive agriculture production, including large areas of intensive crop production, and extensive cattle ranches supporting annual grasslands. Mainly a dry climate with limited surface water resources, the valley has a finite groundwater system. Agriculture accounts for 93.5% of the groundwater extractions that exceed recharge ...


Photoelectric Magnitude Measurements Of The Lunar Eclipses On May 16, 2003 And Oct. 28, 2004, Richard W. Schmude Jr. 2017 Gordon State College

Photoelectric Magnitude Measurements Of The Lunar Eclipses On May 16, 2003 And Oct. 28, 2004, Richard W. Schmude Jr.

Georgia Journal of Science

The Moon's brightness dropped by 10.73 ± 0.07 and 10.61 ± 0.15 magnitudes during the total lunar eclipses on May 16, 2003 and Oct. 28, 2004 respectively. These magnitude drops are close to the corresponding value for the Jan., 2000 total lunar eclipse and indi­cate that not much change in the transparency of the atmosphere has occurred in the last 4 years.


2015, Aug. 20 - Groundwater Recharge On East Side Soils Of The Salinas Valley, 2017 California State University, Monterey Bay

2015, Aug. 20 - Groundwater Recharge On East Side Soils Of The Salinas Valley

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

Discussion of the historically low groundwater levels in the Salinas Valley, noting that the shallower wells have become unreliable. As the groundwater levels drop below sea level, the seawater intrusion in the coastal aquifers will worsen. Because of the fast-declining groundwater levels on the east side of the Salinas Valley, the potential for seawater moving inland increases. Enhancing recharge in these areas would be beneficial in reducing seawater intrusion while lowering flood risk and erosion damage. The article reviews potential strategies to increase infiltration of rainwater during winter storms thereby recharging the underlying aquifer.

Geology Faculty Publications and Presentations

We present detailed surface elevation measurements for the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica derived from aerial lidar surveys flown in the austral summer of 2014–2015 as part of an effort to understand geomorphic changes over the past decade. Lidar return density varied from 2 to > 10 returns m−2with an average of about 5 returns m−2. Vertical and horizontal accuracies are estimated to be 7 and 3 cm, respectively. In addition to our intended targets, other ad hoc regions were also surveyed including the Pegasus flight facility and two regions on Ross Island, McMurdo Station, Scott Base (and surroundings ...

One = Zero, Eric John Gofen 2017 Pomona College

One = Zero, Eric John Gofen

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

In this paper, I use Mathematics in addition to the three most pure sciences --- Physics, Chemistry, and Rap --- to prove that 1=0. The argument uses The Ideal Gas Law, Ohm's Law, the Definitions of Power and Velocity in addition to indefinite integrals, simple mathematical operations, and the 99 Problems Law. The intuition-crushing result can be applied to all branches of mathematics and sciences and will likely go down as one of the greatest discoveries of all time.


Descartes Comes Out Of The Closet, Nora E. Culik 2017 Vassar College

Descartes Comes Out Of The Closet, Nora E. Culik

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

While “Descartes Comes Out of the Closet” is ostensibly about a young woman’s journey to Paris, the descriptive detail borrows language and images from Cartesian coordinate geometry, dualistic philosophy, neuroanatomy (the pineal), and projections of three dimensions onto planes. This mathematical universe is counterpointed in the natural language of the suppressed love story that locates the real in the human. Thus, at the heart of the story is the tension between competing notions of mathematics, i.e., as either an independent realm apart from history or as a culturally produced and historical set of practices. Of course, the central ...

Affinity For Infinity, Pam Lewis 2017 Madison, Wisconsin

Affinity For Infinity, Pam Lewis

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Infinity is an infinitely perplexing concept. In these poems I explore various facets. The first one, Affinity for Infinity, is just silly. In Geometry, I take a more serious, but no more enlightening, approach. Odd Odds, Chaos Theory, and Recalculation touch on the areas of probability, chaos, and emotional and social processes, respectively, all dealing with the infinite possibilities that somehow collapse into the one we experience.


Book Review: Bridges 2013 Poetry Anthology And Bridges 2016 Poetry Anthology, Robin Chapman 2017 University of Wisconsin-Madison

Book Review: Bridges 2013 Poetry Anthology And Bridges 2016 Poetry Anthology, Robin Chapman

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Two collections of mathematical poetry edited by poet and mathematician Sarah Glaz are enthusiastically recommended to readers for the quality of the poetry, the diverse voices speaking in many modes—praise, elegy, philosophical musings, story-telling, humor, playfulness—and the variety of ways in which mathematical references are incorporated or illustrated. The work comes from participants in the Bridges conferences connecting mathematics, the arts, and the sciences over the last seven years.
