Our colorful town in the heart of the Show-Me State is a vibrant center for food and the arts.
Home sweet CoMo
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2012)
Check out what moves - and has moved in Columbia....
Tigers in the wild
Whether your summer scene is a festival, a patio, a trail or a park, CoMo has you (un)covered. With so much life afoot in the open air, you might never want to go inside....
Feels like home
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2006)
In this special section, rediscover Columbia - aka Collegetown USA. Remember how it once was, check out Homecoming details, and get the latest on Tiger football....
An exploration of Indiana's English language learner language programming models
(University of Missouri Cambio Center, 2017)
Indiana provides a unique context for the study of English learner (EL) K-12 language program models, as it is home to the nation's second fastest growing EL population (Migration Policy Institute, 2010). Despite exponential ...
Our beloved CoMo
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2010)
No matter when you spent time in Collegetown USA, you're sure to find something here to jog a memory and places to create new ones.
Beyond the standard IAU framework
(Cambridge university Press, 2010)
We discuss three conceivable scenarios of extension and/or modification of the IAU relativistic resolutions on time scales and spatial coordinates beyond the Standard IAU Framework. These scenarios include: (1) the formalism ...
A Bayesian Approach to Estimating the Long Memory Parameter
(Bayesian Analysis, 2009)
We develop a Bayesian procedure for analyzing stationary long-range dependent processes. Specifically, we consider the fractional exponential model (FEXP) to estimate the memory parameter of a stationary long-memory Gaussian time series...
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2012)
This special section is packed with the 2012 Tiger football preview, Homecoming event information and profiles of three students who lead the planning for the 101st celebration.
A corollary to Bernstein's theorem and Whittaker functionals on the metaplectic group
variety of settings in the study of automorphic forms and L-functions, such as in the theory of local intertwining operators and local coefficients for induced representations, or in the theory of Eisenstein series. Bernstein's theorem is extraordinary...
Millimeter Laser Ranging to the Moon: a comprehensive theoretical model for advanced data analysis
Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR) measurements are crucial for advanced exploration of the evolutionary history of the lunar orbit, the laws of fundamental gravitational physics, selenophysics and geophysics as well as for future ...
Does quinine reduce leg cramps for young athletes?
(Family Physicians Inquiries Network, 2005-01)
Very little evidence exists regarding the use of quinine for cramps in young adult athletes. Quinine may be an effective treatment for heat cramps in athletes (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, 1 case series involving 2 patients). Quinine...
Trends in Food Pantry Use Since Welfare Reform: Evidence from the Kansas City Metropolitan Area
(University of Missouri - Columbia Institute of Public Policy, 2003)
. This is a much smaller increase than has been reported in other studies, but consistent with recent research that uses a series of national cross-sectional household surveys to document changes in food pantry use (Tiehen 2002). In addition to examining...
Roll-out of the “Mizzou Advantage”
(University of Missouri, 2009-09)
Approximately three years ago, MU began an exercise to define “strategic advantages” that could place the University within higher education in an extremely strong, competitive position. The idea was to identify MU's ...
Post-Newtonian Reference Frames for Advanced Theory of the Lunar Motion and a New Generation of Lunar Laser Ranging
We construct a set of post-Newtonian reference frames for a comprehensive study of the orbital dynamics and rotational motion of Moon and Earth by means of lunar laser ranging (LLR) with the precision of one millimeter. ...
The Wintertime Southern Hemisphere Split Jet: Structure, Variability, and Evolution
(American Meteorological Society, 2001-11)
A persistent feature of the Southern Hemisphere upper-level time-mean flow is the presence of a split jet across the South Pacific east of Australia during the austral winter. The split jet is composed of the subtropical ...
Unusual presentation of Coxsackie B rhabdomyolysis : Case report and literature review
(University of Missouri, Department of Medicine, Division of Hospital Medicine, 2014-10)
Coxsackie virus infections occur throughout the year, but have an increased in the summer and fall (1). It is often self-limited and resolves with only symptomatic treatment, but the virus has been linked to rhabdomyolysis ...
Using stochastic models calibrated from nanosecond nonequilibrium simulations to approximate mesoscale information
(American Institute of Physics, 2009)
We demonstrate how the surrogate process approximation (SPA) method can be used to compute both the potential of mean force along a reaction coordinate and the associated diffusion coefficient using a relatively small number (10-20) of bidirectional...
Spatio-Temporal Hierarchical Bayesian Modeling: Tropical Ocean Surface Winds
(American Statistical Association, 2001)
offer several advantages over traditional approaches. Primarily, physical and dynamical constraints are easily incorporated into the conditional formulation, so that the series of relatively simple, yet physically realistic, conditional models leads to a...
Entrepreneurship and the Economic Theory of the Firm: Any Gains from Trade?
(University of Missouri-Columbia, 2004)
Though they developed in isolation, the theory of entrepreneurship and the economic theory of the firm can be usefully integrated. In particular, the concept of entrepreneurship as judgment associated with Knight (1921) ...
