    • Amplifier for Optical Stochastic Cooling 

      Andorf, M.B.; Lebedev, V.A; Piot, P.; Ruan, J. (Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics OSA Technical Digest (online) (Optical Society of America, 2017), paper JW2A.90 •https://doi.org/10.1364/CLEO_AT.2017.JW2A.90, 2017-05-20)
      The amplification of electromagnetic radiation emitted from charged-particlebeams can be used for beam cooling. We discuss our progress to develop such a system usingundulator radiation.
    • An Analogue of Continued Fractions in Number Theory for Nevanlinna Theory 

      Ye, Zhuan (American Mathematical Society, 2004-06-25)
      We show an analogue of continued fractions in approximation to irrational numbers by rationals for Nevanlinna theory. The analogue is a sequence of points in the complex plane which approaches a given nite set of points ...
    • Application of high-frequency impedancemetry approach in measuring the deposition velocities of biomass and sand slurry flows in pipelines 

      Vaezi, Mahdi; Verma, Shubham; Kumar, Amit (Elsevier, 2018-10-17)
      Since the lower limit to operating velocities in slurry transport systems is influenced by deposition conditions, measuring the ″deposition velocity″ is an essential step in slurry pipelines’ design and operation. This ...

      Over the last 30 years, social theorists have increasingly emphasized the importance of space. However, in empirical research, the dialectical relationship between social interaction and the physical environment is still ...
    • Arbitrage, Clientele Effects, and the Term Structure of Interest Rates 

      Katz, Eliakim; Prisman, Eliezer Z. (Cambridge University Press, 1991-12)
      This paper derives a new and intuitive estimation procedure for the term structure under potential tax arbitrage. No a priori assumptions regarding the equality of the prices and present values of bonds are made. The data ...
    • Are Annulate Lamellae in the Drosophila Embryo the Result of Overproduction of Nuclear Pore Components? 

      Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (Rockefeller University Press, 1984-02)
      Annulate lamellae are cytoplasmic organelles composed of stacked sheets of membrane containing pores that are structurally indistinguishable from nuclear pores. The functions of annulate lamellae are not well understood ...
