#### The **mathematics** of urban planning

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1968)

"The question: Can computer techniques be applied to urban planning -- zoning, traffic, water and sewage disposal needs -- as a guide to orderly development?"--Page 30

#### Addendum: On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation [J. Math. Phys. 37, 3997-4016 (1996)]

(American Institute of Physics, 1996)

Addendum: On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation [J. Math. Phys. 37, 3997-4016 (1996)]

#### How often is a permutation an n'th power?

(1997)

We give a short argument that for any fixed n, the probability that a permutation on m letters is an n'th power is asymptotically C m^{phi(n)/n - 1}.

#### A corollary to Bernstein's theorem and Whittaker functionals on the metaplectic group

(1998)

In this paper, we extend and apply a remarkable theorem due to Bernstein, which
was proved in a letter to Piatetski-Shapiro in the fall of 1985 [3]. The theorem is quite useful for establishing analytic continuation and ...

#### On the Morgan-Shalen compactification of the SL(2,C) character varieties of surface groups

(1998)

A gauge theoretic description of the Morgan-Shalen compactification of the SL(2, C)
character variety of the fundamental group of a hyperbolic surface is given in terms of a natural compactification of the moduli space ...

#### Character varieties and harmonic maps to R-trees

(1998)

We show that the Korevaar-Schoen limit of the sequence of equivariant harmonic maps corresponding to a sequence of irreducible $SL_2({\mathbb C})$ representations of the fundamental group of a compact Riemannian manifold ...

#### Evolutionary dynamics while trapped in resonance: a Keplerian binary system perturbed by gravitational radiation

(American Institute of Physics, 1997)

The method of averaging is used to investigate the phenomenon of capture into resonance for a model that describes a Keplerian binary system influenced by radiation damping and external normally incident periodic gravitational ...

####
**MU**'s pioneering art exhibition is homing in on ancient Greece

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1993)

"In a way, a riddle will be on exhibit this fall at Mizzou's Museum of Art and Archaeology. The clues might be found in the painted pottery and bronze sculptures, in the jewelry and artifacts that make up this exhibition ...

#### Reforming Teacher Training and Recruitment: A Critical Appraisal of the Recommendations of the National Commission on Teaching and America's Future

(Government Union Review, 1999)

The author discusses the prolonged debate about education quality in the United States. Too many teachers had poor academic records and received low scores on tests of cognitive ability. Teacher education programs were ...

#### On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation

(American Institute of Physics, 1996)

The gravitational ionization of a Keplerian binary system via normally incident periodic gravitational radiation of definite helicity is discussed. The periodic orbits of the planar tidal equation are investigated on the ...

#### Chaos in the Kepler system

(American Institute of Physics, 1999)

The long-term dynamical evolution of a Keplerian binary orbit due to the emission and absorption of gravitational radiation is investigated. This work extends our previous results on transient chaos in the planar case to ...

#### Gravitational ionization: periodic orbits of binary systems perturbed by gravitational radiation.

(arXiv, 1995)

The long term perturbation of a Newtonian binary system by an incident gravitational wave is discussed in connection with the issue of gravitational ionization. The periodic orbits of the planar tidal equation are investigated ...

#### The University's next ten years

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1969)

"These are the themes contained in the 64-page Long-range planning, published last month by the University. Two years in the making, the 10-year projection is the result of studies made by each campus and each academic ...

#### Gravitational ionization: a chaotic net in the Kepler system

(American Institute of Physics, 1997)

The long-term nonlinear dynamics of a Keplerian binary system under the combined influences of gravitational radiation damping and external tidal perturbations is analysed. Gravitational radiation reaction leads the binary ...

#### Chaos in the Hill system

(arXiv, 1999)

We define the general Hill system and briefly analyze its dynamical behavior. A particular Hill system representing the interaction of a Keplerian binary system with a normally incident circularly polarized gravitational ...

#### Performer Don Cooper : on record as a success

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1971)

"During spring break in his senior year, Don Cooper, Ed '69, left Columbia for New York and decided if he was offered a good recording contract, he wouldn't return to the University for his degree."--Page 13

#### A New Tool for Discourse Analysis: The Vocabulary-Management Profile

(1991)

A Turbo Pascal program is used to generate vocabulary management profiles (VMPs). The program counts the new vocabulary words introduced into a text over successive thirty-five-word intervals, and these numbers are then ...

#### Professor par excellence

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1991)

"Do you speak French? Dr. Mary Jo Muratore helps 800 students each semester master the fundamentals of this Romance language. Because of her success in the classroom, she won a William T. Kemper Fellowship for teaching ...

#### Measuring Lexical Style and Competence: The Type-Token Vocabulary Curve

(Northern Illinois University, 1990)

A personal computer is used to analyze samples from literary texts by thirteen
different authors, including passages from Genesis, Hemingway, Longfellow, Jane
Austen, Henry James, George Eliot, James Joyce, and Basic ...

#### Good chemistry

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1995)

"A straight-talking scientist, Dr. Jerry Atwood, a native of Willard, Mo., explains why basic research is important to Missouri, the nation and the world."--Table of contents for issue.
