      Dubbelday, Pieter S. (1975)
      Formulations for the energy equation exist in variety in fundamental and applied texts and monographs on fluid dynamics. It is often difficult to establish the set of conditions leading to a given formulation. More deleterious ...
    • A Foundation for Cyber Experimentation 

      Stoner, Evan Lawrence (2015-05)
      Despite the variety of environments and tools available to computer scientists performing cyber experimentation, the community lacks a single cohesive platform that is capable of unifying these tools across environments ...
    • Four short-period algols 

      Rafert, James Bruce (1990-10)
