Disseminated chlorellosis in a dog
(American College of Veterinary Pathologists, 2009-01)
An adult dog with ataxia and a lingual mass, previously diagnosed as protothecosis, was euthanized. At the postmortem examination, the lingual mass, regions of the lungs and hilar lymph nodes, liver, mesenteric and sublumbar ...
Electrochemical Properties of Carbon Nanoparticles Entrapped in Silica Matrix
(Electrochemical Society, 2008-10)
Carbon-based electrode materials have been widely used for many years for electrochemical charge storage, energy generation, and catalysis. We have developed an electrode material with high specific capacitance by entrapping ...
Analysis of point-to-point packet delay in an operational network, Computer Networks
In this paper, we perform a detailed analysis of point-to-point packet delay in an operational tier-1 network. The point-to-point delay is the time experienced by a packet from an ingress to an egress point in an ISP, and ...
QoS and channel aware packet bundling for VoIP traffic in cellular networks
We study the problem of multiple packet bundling to improve spectral efficiency in cellular networks. The packet size of real-time data, such as VoIP, is often very small. However, the use of time division multiplexing ...
Adaptive Random Sampling for Traffic Volume Measurement
(Springer Science, 2007-02)
Traffic measurement and monitoring are an important component of network management and traffic engineering. With high-speed Internet backbone links, efficient and effective packet sampling techniques for traffic measurement ...
The spectrum of the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid
The spectrum of the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid and the spectrum of the corresponding group acting in the space of continuous divergence free vector fields on a compact Riemannian manifold ...
Finite time blow up for a Navier-Stokes like equation
We consider an equation similar to the Navier-Stokes equation. We show that there is initial data that exists in every Triebel-Lizorkin or Besov space (and hence in every Lebesgue and Sobolev space), such that after a ...
Hierarchical Bayesian Approach to Boundary Value Problems with Stochastic Boundary Conditions
(American Meteorological Society, 2003)
Boundary value problems are ubiquitous in the atmospheric and ocean sciences. Typical settings include bounded, partially bounded, global and limited area domains, discretized for applications of numerical models of the ...
The purpose of this article is to summerize some recent results of the author about Orlicz-Lorentz spaces - function spaces that provide a common generalization of Orlicz spaces and Lorentz spaces.
Measuring the magnitude of sums of independent random variables
This paper considers how to measure the magnitude of the sum of independent random variables in several ways. We give a formula for the tail distribution for sequences that satisfy the so called Lévy property. We then give ...
Concrete representation of martingales
Let (fn) be a mean zero vector valued martingale sequence. Then there exist vector valued functions (dn) from [0,1]n such that ∫01 dn(x1,...,xn) dxn = 0 for almost all x1,...,xn-1, and such that the law of (fn) is the same ...
A transference theorem for ergodic H1
In this paper, we extend the basic transference theorem for convolution operators on Lp spaces of Coifman and Weiss to H1 spaces.
Decoupling inequalities for the tail probabilities of multivariate u-statistics
In this paper we present a decoupling inequality that shows that multivariate U-statistics can be studied as sums of (conditionally) independent random variables. This result has important implications in several areas of ...
On a weak type (1, 1) inequality for a maximal conjugate function
In a celebrated paper, Burkholder, Gundy, and Silverstein used Brownian motion to derive a maximal function characterization of Hp spaces for 0 < p < ∞. In this paper, we show that their method extends to higher dimensions ...
Lyapunov theorems for Banach spaces
We present a spectral mapping theorem for semigroups on any Banach space E. From this, we obtain a characterization of exponential dichotomy for nonautonomous differential equations for E-valued functions. This characterization ...
Can Entrepreneurship Be Taught?
Is entrepreneurship an innate ability or an acquired skill? Can entrepreneurial acumen be achieved and enhanced through education and training, or are certain people “born” to be entrepreneurs or to act entrepreneurially? ...
Organizational Structure and the Diversification Discount: Evidence from Commercial Banking
This paper provides evidence on organizational structure, geographic diversification, and performance at bank holding companies (BHCs). First, we show that a BHC's member banks benefit from access to the parent organization's ...
A Measure of Media Bias
(Department of Economics, 2005)
In this paper we estimate ADA (Americans for Democratic Action) scores for major media outlets such as the New York Times, USA Today, Fox News' Special Report, and all three network television news shows. Our estimates ...
Predicting the Spatial Distribution of Ground Flora on Large Domains Using a Hierarchical Bayesian Model
(Landscape Ecology, 2003)
Accomodation of important sources of uncertainty in ecological models is essential to realistically predicting ecological processes. The purpose of this project is to develop a robust methodology for modeling natural ...
Efficient Statistical Mapping of Avian Count Data
(Environmental and Ecological Statistics, 2005)
We develop a spatial modeling framework for count data that is efficient to implement in high-dimensional prediction problems. We consider spectral parameterizations for the spatially varying mean of the Poisson model. The ...
