Evolution Of Solitary Waves For A Perturbed Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Tim Marchant 2009 University of Wollongong

Evolution Of Solitary Waves For A Perturbed Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Tim Marchant

Tim Marchant

Soliton perturbation theory is used to determine the evolution of a solitary wave described by a perturbed nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Perturbation terms, which model wide classes of physically relevant perturbations, are considered. An analytical solution is found for the first-order correction of the evolving solitary wave. This solution for the solitary wave tail is in integral form and an explicit expression is found, for large time. Singularity theory, usually used for combustion problems, is applied to the large time expression for the solitary wave tail. Analytical results are obtained, such as the parameter regions in which qualitatively different types of ...


Measuring The Hiv/Aids Epidemic: Approaches And Challenges, Ron Brookmeyer 2009 University of California, Los Angeles

Measuring The Hiv/Aids Epidemic: Approaches And Challenges, Ron Brookmeyer

Ron Brookmeyer

In this article, the author reviews current approaches and methods for measuring the scope of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic and their strengths and weaknesses. In recent years, various public health agencies have revised statistical estimates of the scope of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The author considers the reasons underlying these revisions. New sources of data for estimating HIV prevalence have become available, such as nationally representative probability-based surveys. New technologies such as biomarkers that indicate when persons became infected are now used to determine HIV incidence rates. The author summarizes the main sources of ...

Electrochemical Glucose Sensors—Developments Using Electrostatic Assembly And Carbon Nanotubes For Biosensor Construction, Alice Harper, Mark Anderson 2009 Berry College

Electrochemical Glucose Sensors—Developments Using Electrostatic Assembly And Carbon Nanotubes For Biosensor Construction, Alice Harper, Mark Anderson

Mark R. Anderson

In 1962, Clark and Lyons proposed incorporating the enzyme glucose oxidase in the construction of an electrochemical sensor for glucose in blood plasma. In their application, Clark and Lyons describe an electrode in which a membrane permeable to glucose traps a small volume of solution containing the enzyme adjacent to a pH electrode, and the presence of glucose is detected by the change in the electrode potential that occurs when glucose reacts with the enzyme in this volume of solution. Although described nearly 50 years ago, this seminal development provides the general structure for constructing electrochemical glucose sensors that is ...

When Does A Category Built On A Lattice With A Monoidal Structure Have A Monoidal Structure?, Lawrence Stout 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

When Does A Category Built On A Lattice With A Monoidal Structure Have A Monoidal Structure?, Lawrence Stout

Lawrence N. Stout

In a word, sometimes. And it gets harder if the structure on L is not commutative. In this paper we consider the question of what properties are needed on the lattice L equipped with an operation * for several different kinds of categories built using Sets and L to have monoidal and monoidal closed structures. This works best for the Goguen category Set(L) in which membership, but not equality, is made fuzzy and maps respect membership. Commutativity becomes critical if we make the equality fuzzy as well. This can be done several ways, so a progression of categories is considered ...


Recursion, Infinity, And Modeling, Lawrence Stout, Hans-Jorg Tiede 2009 Illinois Wesleyan University

Recursion, Infinity, And Modeling, Lawrence Stout, Hans-Jorg Tiede

Lawrence N. Stout

Hauser, Chomsky, and Fitch (2002) claim that a core property of the human language faculty is recursion and that this property "yields discrete infinity" (2002: 1571) of natural languages. On the other hand, recursion is often motivated by the observation that there are infinitely many sentences that should be generated by a finite number of rules. It should be obvious that one cannot pursue both arguments simultaneously, on pain of circularity. The main aim of this paper is to clarify both conceptually and methodologically the relationship between recursion and infinity in language. We want to argue that discrete infinity is ...


Relations Relevant To The One Body Reduction Of The Gravitational Two Body Problem, Eric Addison 2009 Utah State University

Relations Relevant To The One Body Reduction Of The Gravitational Two Body Problem, Eric Addison

Eric Addison

The one body reduction of the two body problem is outlined along with several important relations. It is verified that both masses in a binary system orbit around the common center of mass.

Multiple Decrement Modeling In The Presence Of Interval Censoring And Masking, Peter Adamic, Stephanie Dixon, Daniel Gillis 2009 Laurentian University

Multiple Decrement Modeling In The Presence Of Interval Censoring And Masking, Peter Adamic, Stephanie Dixon, Daniel Gillis

Stephanie Dixon

A self-consistent algorithm will be proposed to non-parametrically estimate the cause-specific cumulative incidence functions (CIFs) in an interval censored, multiple decrement context. More specifically, the censoring mechanism will be assumed to be a mixture of case 2 interval-censored data with the additional possibility of exact observations. The proposed algorithm is a generalization of the classical univariate algorithms of Efron and Turnbull. However, unlike any previous non-parametric models proposed in the literature to date, the algorithm will explicitly allow for the possibility of any combination of masked modes of failure, where failure is known only to occur due to a subset ...


List Coloring And N-Monophilic Graphs, Ramin Naimi, Radoslav Kirov 2009 Occidental College

List Coloring And N-Monophilic Graphs, Ramin Naimi, Radoslav Kirov

Ramin Naimi

In 1990, Kostochka and Sidorenko proposed studying the smallest number of list-colorings of a graph G among all assignments of lists of a given size n to its vertices. We say a graph G is n-monophilic if this number is minimized when identical n-color lists are assigned to all vertices of G. Kostochka and Sidorenko observed that all chordal graphs are n-monophilic for all n. Donner (1992) showed that every graph is n-monophilic for all sufficiently large n. We prove that all cycles are n-monophilic for all n; we give a complete characterization of 2-monophilic graphs (which turns out to ...
