The College of Science is a place where passionate people come together each day to push the boundaries of knowledge and to improve our collective understanding of the world in which we live. Here, students and professors alike examine everything from the depths of our oceans to the far reaches of our universe. Each department within the college has unique strengths and expertise in both teaching and research. Our students study diverse subjects such as biomathematics, research chemistry, aquaculture, STEM education and planetary sciences.

  • A normal supermassive black hole in NGC 1277 

    Graham, Alister W; Durré, Mark; Savorgnan, Giulia A. D; Medling, Anne M.; Batcheldor, Daniel; Scott, Nicholas; Watson, Beverly; Marconi, Alessandro (2016-03-01)
    The identification of galaxies with “overly massive” black holes requires two measurements: a black hole mass (Mbh) and a host spheroid mass (Msph,*). Here we provideOur new multi-Gaussian expansion (MGE) models and Jeans ...
  • Runaway breakdown in the Jovian atmospheres 

    Dwyer, Joseph R.; Coleman, Lee M.; Lopez, Ramon E.; Saleh, Ziad H.; Concha, D.; Brown, Michael G.; Rassoul, Hamid K. (2006-11-30)
    Using detailed Monte Carlo calculations, the properties of runaway breakdown in the atmospheres of the four gas giant planets in our solar system are investigated, and the runaway avalanche lengths and average runaway ...
  • Quantitative constraints on the transport properties of hot partonic matter from semi-inclusive single high transverse momentum pion suppression in Au+Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV 

    Adare, Andrew Marshall; Afanasiev, Sergey V.; Aidala, Christine A.; Ajitanand, N. N.; Akiba, Yasuyuki; Baksay, Gyöngyi; Baksay, László A.; Dehmelt, Klaus; Hohlmann, Marcus; Rembeczki, S. (2008-06-24)
    The PHENIX experiment has measured the suppression of semi-inclusive single high-transverse-momentum π0's in Au+Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV. The present understanding of this suppression is in terms of energy loss of ...
  • Photon-hadron jet correlations in p+p and Au+Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV 

    Adare, Andrew Marshall; Afanasiev, Sergey V.; Aidala, Christine A.; Ajitanand, N. N.; Akiba, Yasuyuki; Baksay, Gyöngyi; Baksay, László A.; Dehmelt, Klaus; Hohlmann, Marcus; Rembeczki, S. (2009-08-31)
    We report the observation at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider of suppression of back-to-back correlations in the direct photon+jet channel in Au+Au relative to p+p collisions. Two-particle correlations of direct photon ...
  • Wide binary systems and the nature of high-velocity white dwarfs 

    Silvestri, Nicole M.; Oswalt, T. D.; Hawley, Suzanne L. (2002-08)
    We present measured radial velocities and complete space motions for 116 white dwarf stars with M dwarf companions. Thirteen pairs have " halo-like " velocities. According to a recent study by Oppenheimer et al., all these ...
  • A new look at the local white dwarf population 

    Holberg, Jay B.; Sión, Edward M.; Oswalt, T. D.; McCook, George P.; Foran, S.; Subasavage, John P. (2008-04)
    We have conducted a detailed new survey of the local population of white dwarfs lying within 20 pc of the Sun. A new revised catalog of local white dwarfs containing 122 entries (126 individual degenerate stars) is presented. ...
  • The white dwarfs within 20 parsecs of the sun: Kinematics and statistics 

    Sión, Edward M.; Holberg, Jay B.; Oswalt, T. D.; McCook, George P.; Wasatonic, Richard P. (2009-12)
    We present the kinematical properties, distribution of spectroscopic subtypes, and stellar population subcomponents of the white dwarfs within 20 pc of the Sun. We find no convincing evidence of halo white dwarfs in the ...
  • Broadband optical observations of BL lacertae during the 1997 outburst 

    Webb, James R.; Freedman, Ian; Howard, Emily S.; Ma, Feng; Belfort, Michelle; Rave, Heather A.; Rumstay, Ken S.; Oswalt, T. D.; Marshall, Daniel; Robishaw, Timothy (1998-06)
    We present BVRI observations of BL Lacertae during its recent outburst. These observations, made during a 3 month period, cover a significant portion of the optical flare. The reduced data are displayed as light curves and ...
  • The physical properties of double degenerate common proper motion binaries 

    Sión, Edward M.; Oswalt, T. D.; Liebert, James W.; Hintzen, Paul M N (1991-04)
    We present spectral types and spectrophotometry for 21 double degenerate (DD) common proper motion binaries and provide estimates of their colors, absolute visual and bolometric magnitudes, and cooling ages. The most typical ...
  • Set differential equations with causal operators 

    Drici, Zahia; McRae, Farzana A.; Vasundhara Devi, J. (2005-04-28)
    We obtain some basic results on existence, uniqueness, and continuous dependence of solutions with respect to initial values for set differential equations with causal operators.
  • Optimality Conditions for Systems Driven by Nonlinear Evolution Equations 

    Papageorgiou, Nikolaos S. (1995)
    Using the Dubovitskii-Milyutin theory we derive necessary and sufficient conditions for optimality for a class of Lagrange optimal control problems monitored by a nonlinear evolution equation and involving initial and/or ...
