HOMOGENEITY GROUPS OF ENDS OF OPEN 3-MANIFOLDS Mathematics

Each Cantor set C in S3 has for complement an open 3-manifold M3 with end set C. Properties of the embedding of the Cantor set give rise to properties of the corresponding complementary 3-manifold M3. See [Souto and Stover 2013], [Garity and Repovš 2013], and [Garity et al. 2014] for examples of thi... Continue Reading

SUPPORTING COMPARISON OF DEVELOPER PROFILES ACROSS ONLINE COMMUNI... Computer Science

Current software development practices increasingly use code sharing sites and Question and Answer (Q&A) forums, which in turn archive development activities. These activities have been used to triage bugs [1][2], recommend experts for tasks [3][4], or recommend mentors to newcomers [5][6]. However,... Continue Reading

USAGE, COSTS, AND BENEFITS OF CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION IN OPEN-SOUR... Computer Science

Continuous integration (CI) systems automate the compilation, building, and testing of software. Despite CI rising as a big success story in automated software engineering, it has received almost no attention from the research community. For example, how widely is CI used in practice, and what are s... Continue Reading

EINSTEIN’S EQUATIONS IN THE PRESENCE OF SIGNATURE CHANGE Mathematics

INTRODUCTION Classical cosmological models containing an initial region of Euclidean signature joined to a final region with the usual Lorentzian signature were introduced by Ellis et al.1,2 A basic feature of this work is the use of the Darmois junction conditions at the surface where the signatur...

ASSESSING AND MAXIMIZING DATA QUALITY IN MACROMOLECULAR CRYSTALLO... Bio Chemistry

The quality of macromolecular crystal structures depends, in part, on the quality and quantity of the data used to produce them. Here, we review recent shifts in our understanding of how to use data quality indicators to select a high resolution cutoff that leads to the best model, and of the potent... Continue Reading

AN EXAMINATION OF THE SHRIMP FUTURES MARKET Marketing

Abstract. The only two seafood commodities traded in futures markets are frozen white and black tiger shrimps on the Minneapolis Grain Exchange (MGE). These two contracts, however, have failed to attract the expected trade volume based on the underlying shrimp cash market flow. First, we investiga... Continue Reading

EFFECT OF MEDIUM RANGE ORDER ON PULSED LASER CRYSTALLIZATION OF A... Mechanical Engineering

Sputter deposited amorphous Ge thin films had their nanostructure altered by irradiation with highenergy Arþ ions. The change in the structure resulted in a reduction in medium range order (MRO) characterized using fluctuation electron microscopy. The pulsed laser crystallization kinetics of the as-...

ANALYSIS AND TRANSFORMATIONS IN SUPPORT OF ANDROID PRIVACY Computer Science

To protect user’s privacy and system’s integrity, mobile platforms use permission models to control accesses to protected resources such as GPS location, Contacts, etc. The previous major version of Android used a static permission model, which compromised the security and privacy of apps. Android 6... Continue Reading

EXCITING PASSIVE DYNAMICS IN A VERSATILE BIPEDAL ROBOT Industrial Chemistry

Walking and running animals are inherently energy economic, agile and versatile. Natural locomotion with its impressive dynamics relies on structural leg compliance for the physical interaction with the environment [1]. The SpringMass template model is the only reduced-order model that reproduces th... Continue Reading

UNIVERSITY RESEARCHER AND LAW ENFORCEMENT COLLABORATION LESSONS F... Sociology

In 2012, heads of local law enforcement agencies in Benton County, Oregon, contacted researchers at Oregon State University to discuss a problem: a sharp rise in the amount of contact between police and suspects displaying symptoms of mental illness. This initial contact led to an ongoing collaborat... Continue Reading

SOLAR THERMOCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE THROUGH CARBONATION CYCLES OF... Chemical Engineering

Concentrated solar power (CSP) generation combined with energy storage has the intrinsic advantage of dispatchability, which is the ability to provide energy upon demand, or alternatively, store energy when there is no demand. Despite this advantage, a transformational breakthrough is needed in the... Continue Reading
