      We present the galaxy cluster catalog from the second, larger phase of the Wide Angle ROSAT Pointed Survey (WARPS), an X-ray selected survey for high-redshift galaxy clusters. WARPS is among the largest deep X-ray cluster ...
    • Waveguide delivery of x-rays for minimally invasive tumor therapy 

      Waynant, Ronald W.; Ilev, Ilko K.; Kunal, Mitra (2001-05-21)
      We are studying the potential use of x-rays, which are collected by non-imaging optics and delivered through stereotactically guided needles by hollow waveguides, for irradiation of tumors. X-rays have greater transparency ...

      Murshid, Syed H.; Lovell, Gregory L.; Hridoy, Arnob; Parhar, Gurinder; Chakravarty, Abhijit; Alanzi, Saud F.; Chowdhury, Bilas (2016-08-08)
      Spatial domain multiplexing (SDM), also known as space division multiplexing, adds a new degree of photon freedom to existing optical fiber multiplexing techniques by allocating separate radial locations to different ...
    • Wavelength specific fluorescence coefficients for simulating hyperspectral reflectance signatures of water 

      Bostater, Charles R.; Rebman, Jan (1999-12-17)

    • Wavelet based image compression using perceptual distortion metric 

      Goswami, Hemen; Kozaitis, S.P. (2003-08-08)
      Bits are allocated to various subbands to minimize a particular cost function to achieve compression in subband coding. The most common cost function is the L2 norm based on mean squared error (MSE). However, the MSE often ...
    • Wavelet-based fusion approach using unique reconstruction approach 

      Ouendeno, Michel; Kozaitis, Samuel P. (2007-04-09)
      We used measures based on entropy to evaluate a method designed to fuse imagery from different sensor types. The method uses different forward transforms of input images and a common transform to reconstruct the final ...
    • Wavelet-based image compression using randomized quantization 

      Kozatis, Samuel Peter; Goswami, Hemen (2000-06-29)
      We applied dithered quantization to image compression using a wavelet transform, scalar quantization method. The results indicate that dithered quantization could change the noise characteristics ofthe reconstructed image.
    • Wavelet-based noise reduction in multispectral imagery 

      Basuhail, Abdullah A.; Kozaitis, S.P. (1998-07-02)
      We used a 3-D wavelet-based denoising method to reduce the noise from multispectral imagery. In our approach, we compared denoising of different bands of a multispectral image using a 2-D denoising technique, by which the ...
    • Weather Station 

      ALmasabi, Sakher; ALmemarii, Mohamed; ALmemari, Omar
      Weather station consisting of a number of sensors Sensors continuously transmit their readings wirelessly Readings are received by an android app on a mobile phone and the app displays the data sent by the weather station ...
    • Web-based trend analysis of rocket data using XML 

      Gibson, Mark Randall (2005-01-22)
      This paper will discuss and prove the feasibility of using XML to transfer, compare, and view data created during automated testing of black boxes; stored both in simple text format and relational database format. This ...
    • WebSpy: an architecture for monitoring web server availability in a multi-platform environment 

      Thirukonda, Madhan M.; Becker, Shirley A. (2002-05-08)
      For an electronic business (e-business), customer satisfaction can be the difference between long-term success and short-term failure. Customer satisfaction is highly impacted by web server availability, as customers expect ...

      Thirukonda, Madhan Mohan; Becker, Shirley Ann (2002)
      For an electronic business (e-business), customer satisfaction can be the difference between long-term success and short-term failure. Customer satisfaction is highly impacted by Web server availability, as customers expect ...
    • The WEBT campaign on the blazar 3C 279 in 2006

      The quasar 3C 279 was the target of an extensive multiwavelength monitoring campaign from 2006 January through April. An optical-IR-radio monitoring campaign by the Whole Earth Blazar Telescope (WEBT) collaboration was ...
    • Weighted Composition Operators From Logarithmic Bloch-Type Spaces To Bloch-Type Spaces

    • When Personality Traits Need a Frame of Reference: Enhancing the Predictive Validity of Non-cognitive Measures. 

      English, Andrew David (2003-12)
      The reconsideration of personality among personnel specialists is partly due to the discovery of the five-factor model of personality or the "Big Five" (Costa, 1996). In the years following the acceptance of this taxonomy, ...
    • Where Are the Magnetic White Dwarfs with Detached, Nondegenerate Companions?
