We propose a Newton-GMRES?type algorithm to solve the discrete von Karman problem. We show that this algorithm is efficient both in memory andcomputation time and robust in the neighborhood of the singular points of the ...
We consider formulations for the Helmholtz operator for periodic media containing high contrast inclusions in the limit when the wavelength outside the inclusions tends to infinity. Applications are to problems of ...
Cigarette smoking and poor glycemic control are risk factors for diabetic nephropathy in type 1 diabetes. However, the specifics of the relation of these risk factors to the onset of this complication have not been elucidated. ...
This paper presents a nonlinear in-plane elastic buckling analysis of circular shallow arches that are subjected both to a uniform temperature field and to a uniform radial load field. A virtual work method is used to ...
This paper presents a thorough and comprehensive investigation of non-linear buckling and postbuckling analyses of pin-ended shallow circular arches subjected to a uniform radial load and which have equal elastic rotational ...
We provide several illustrations of Bayesian semiparametric regression analyses in the BRugs package. BRugs facilitates use of the BUGS inference engine from the R computing environment and allows analyses to be managed ...
In this note, it is shown that there exist non-topologically generated spaces which are both Lowen uniformizable and Hutton uniformizable. On the other hand, the FNS-coreflection of the Hutton unit interval I(I) is neither ...

Abstract: The Metropolis-Hastings algorithm has been important in the recent development of Bayes methods. This algorithm generates random draws from a target distribution utilizing a sampling (or proposal) distribution. ...
Although many people are exposed to ozone, the effects of chronic exposure to this ubiquitous pollutant, especially low-level chronic exposure, are not well understood. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) current ...
We consider the Hurwitz zeta function zeta(s, a) and develop asymptotic results for a = p/q, with q large, and, in particular, for p/q tending to 1/2. We also study the properties of lines along which the symmetrized parts ...
A number n > 1 is harmonic if sigma(n) vertical bar n tau(n), where tau(n) and sigma(n) are the number of positive divisors of n and their sum, respectively. It is known that there are no odd harmonic numbers up to 10(16). ...
There are many Fibonacci identities to be found in short informal articles in the early editions of The Fibonacci Quarterly. See, for example, (1) and (2). The aim of the authoprs was to gather Fibonacci identities from ...
Many organizational decision problems can be formulated by multi-objective linear programming (MOLP) models. Referring to the imprecision inherent in human judgments, uncertainty may be incorporated in the parameters of ...
We find a solution of the optimal stopping problem for the case when a reward function is an integer function of a random walk on an infinite time interval. It is shown that an optimal stopping time is a first crossing ...
