Ergodic And Combinatorial Proofs Of Van Der Waerden's Theorem, Matthew Samuel Rothlisberger 2010 Claremont McKenna College

Ergodic And Combinatorial Proofs Of Van Der Waerden's Theorem, Matthew Samuel Rothlisberger

CMC Senior Theses

Followed two different proofs of van der Waerden's theorem. Found that the two proofs yield important information about arithmetic progressions and the theorem. van der Waerden's theorem explains the occurrence of arithmetic progressions which can be used to explain such things as the Bible Code.


Conventions, Definitions, Identities, And Other Useful Formulae, Robert A. McNees IV 2010 Loyola University Chicago

Conventions, Definitions, Identities, And Other Useful Formulae, Robert A. Mcnees Iv

Physics: Faculty Publications and Other Works

As the name suggests, these notes contain a summary of important conventions, definitions, identities, and various formulas that I often refer to. They may prove useful for researchers working in General Relativity, Supergravity, String Theory, Cosmology, and related areas.

This work reports on the transport properties of NH4NO3 doped methyl cellulose (MC) polymer electrolyte. The polymer electrolyte films were prepared by the technique of solvent casting. The highest room temperature conductivity of MC doped with 25 wt.% NH4NO3 is 2.10 +/- 0.37 x 10(-6) S cm(-1). Conductivity-temperature relationship obeys the Vogel-Tamman-Fulcher (VTF) rule from which the glass transition temperature, T-g was evaluated. The mobility, p and number density of charge carrier, n were calculated using the Rice and Roth model. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Technology For The Organic Chemist: Three Exploratory Modules, John Esteb, Luanne Mcnulty, John Magers, Paul Morgan, Anne Wilson

John Esteb

The ability to use computer-based technology is an essential skill set for students majoring in chemistry. This exercise details the introduction of appropriate uses for this technology in the organic chemistry series. The incorporation of chemically appropriate online resources (module 1), scientific databases (module 2), and the use of a chemical drawing program (module 3) are detailed here.

Making The States Full Partners In A National Climate Change Effort: A Necessary Element For Sustainable Economic Development, John Dernbach, Robert McKinstry, Thomas Peterson 2009 Widener Univesity Law School

Making The States Full Partners In A National Climate Change Effort: A Necessary Element For Sustainable Economic Development, John Dernbach, Robert Mckinstry, Thomas Peterson

John C. Dernbach

This article explains why states and localities need to be full partners in a national climate change effort based on federal legislation or the existing Clean Air Act. A large share of reductions with the lowest cost and the greatest co-benefits (e.g., job creation, technology development, reduction of other pollutants) are in areas that a federal cap-and-trade program or other purely federal measures will not easily reach. These are also areas where the states have traditionally exercised their powers—including land use, building construction, transportation, and recycling. The economic recovery and expansion will require direct state and local management ...

We report the viability of methyl cellulose (MC) as a membrane in a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). Methyl cellulose serves as the polymer host, ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) as the doping salt and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) as plasticizer. Conductivity measurement was carried out using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. The room temperature conductivity of pure MC film is is (3.08 +/- 0.63) x 10(-11)S cm(-1). The conductivity increased to (2.10 +/- 0.37) x 10(-6)S cm(-1) on addition of 25 wt.% NH4NO3. By adding 15 wt.% of PEG 200 to the highest conducting ...

Deformation Of Continental Crust Along A Transform Boundary, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Scott Bogue, Margaret Rusmore, Karen Dodson, Kenneth Farley, Glenn Woodsworth 2009 Occidental College

Deformation Of Continental Crust Along A Transform Boundary, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Scott Bogue, Margaret Rusmore, Karen Dodson, Kenneth Farley, Glenn Woodsworth

New structural, paleomagnetic, and apatite (U-Th)/He results from the continental margin inboard of the Queen Charlotte fault (∼54°N) delineate patterns of brittle faulting linked to transform development since ∼50 Ma. In the core of the orogen, ∼250 km from the transform, north striking, dip-slip brittle faults and vertical axis rotation of large crustal domains occurred after ∼50 Ma and before intrusion of mafic dikes at 20 Ma. By 20 Ma, dextral faulting was active in the core of the orogen, but extension had migrated toward the transform, continuing there until <9 Ma. Local tilting in the core of ...
