University of Missouri Chemical Engineering 1903 to 2013 : a history from the beginning
(University of Missouri, Department of Chemical Engineering, 20130911)This treatise is a history of the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Missouri. It covers the years 1903 to 2013 and includes the successful development of the Nuclear Engineering Graduate Program, the ... 
Gravitational ionization: periodic orbits of binary systems perturbed by gravitational radiation.
(arXiv, 199508)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 ... 
Addendum: On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation [J. Math. Phys. 37, 39974016 (1996)]
(American Institute of Physics, 199609)Addendum: On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation [J. Math. Phys. 37, 39974016 (1996)] 
On the ionization of a Keplerian binary system by periodic gravitational radiation
(American Institute of Physics, 199605)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 ... 
Gravitational ionization: a chaotic net in the Kepler system
(American Institute of Physics, 199703)The longterm 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 ... 
Modification, Degradation, and Stability of Polymeric Surfaces Treated with Reactive Plasmas
(Journal of Polymer Science: Part A: Polymer Chemistry, 2000)The degradation, modification, and stability of polymeric surfaces exposed to chemically reactive O2 and H2Ovapor plasmas were investigated. Specifically, the effects of these plasmas on etching rate, surface morphology, ... 
Evolutionary dynamics while trapped in resonance: a Keplerian binary system perturbed by gravitational radiation
(American Institute of Physics, 199707)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 ... 
Chaos in the Kepler system
(American Institute of Physics, 199902)The longterm 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 ... 
Chaos in the Hill system
(arXiv, 199912)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 ... 
Sustained resonance: a binary system perturbed by gravitational radiation
(American Institute of Physics, 200001)The general phenomena associated with sustained resonance are studied in this paper in connection with relativistic binary pulsars. We represent such a system by two point masses in a Keplerian binary system that evolves ... 
Hydrogen storage in engineered carbon nanospaces
(Institute of Physics, 200904)It is shown how appropriately engineered nanoporous carbons provide materials for reversible hydrogen storage, based on physisorption, with exceptional storage capacities (~80 g H2/kg carbon, ~50 g H2/liter carbon, at 50 ...
