Object matching using the dynamic programming algorithm
(199703)A new algorithm for matching objects between images is developed and investigated. Affine transformations, i.e. those with translation, rotation, scaling and shearing between images are considered. Steps along the way include ... 
Oceanic Transport and Life History of the Tropical Western Atlantic Opossum Pipefish, Microphis brachyurus lineatus
(200205)The opossum pipefish, Microphis brachyurus lineatus, is a tropical migratory syngnathid. Adults live and breed in freshwater tributaries in specific emergent vegetative habitats. Juveniles associate with pelagic Sargassum ... 
On a class of critical NLaplacian problems
(202112)We establish some existence results for a class of critical NLaplacian problems in a bounded domain in RN. In the absence of a suitable direct sum decomposition, we use an abstract linking theorem based on the ... 
On Logconcavity of Multivariate Discrete Distributions
(201712)The contribution of this dissertation to the literature is twofold. First, we use a geometric perspective to present all possible subdivisions of R³ into tetrahedra with disjoint interiors and adopt a combinatorial ... 
On Phase Change Material Heat Exchangers: A Computational and Experimental Investigation
(201610)The emergence of ground and airbornebased high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems has created a need for highrate thermal energy storage (TES) devices that meet demanding size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements for ... 
On the Automation of Cyber Experimentation
(201806)There are a variety of tools available to users to perform cyber experimentation, and many of them automate some aspects of the experimentation lifecycle. However, they either support a minimal subset of the tools across ... 
On the Characterization of Natural Language Structure and Literary Stylometry  A Network Science Approach
(202005)Natural language processing (NLP) techniques have been through many advancements in recent years, linguistics and scientist utilized these techniques to solve many challenges related to written language and literary. ... 
On the Classification of the Second Minimal Orbits of the Continuous Endomorphisms on the Real Line and Universality in Chaos
(201704)This dissertation presents full classification of second minimal odd periodic orbits of a continuous endomorphisms on the real line. A (2k + 1)periodic orbit (k ≥ 3) is called second minimal for the map f, if 2k−1 is a ... 
On the Inverse Multiphase Stefan Problem
(201507)We consider inverse multiphase Stefan problem, where information on the heat flux on the fixed boundary is missing and must be found along with the temperature and free boundaries. Optimal control framework is pursued, ... 
On the Qualitative Theory of the Nonlinear Degenerate Second Order Parabolic Equations Modeling ReactionDiffusionConvection Processes
(201805)We consider nonlinear second order degenerate or singular parabolic equation ut − a(um)xx + buβ + c(up)x = 0, a, m, β, p > 0, b, c ∈ R describing reactiondiffusionconvection processes arising in many areas of science and ... 
On the Qualitative Theory of the Nonlinear Parabolic pLaplacian Type ReactionDiffusion Equations
(201811)This dissertation presents full classification of the evolution of the interfaces and asymptotics of the local solution near the interfaces and at infinity for the nonlinear second order parabolic pLaplacian type ... 
One Dimensional Neural Time Series Generation
(202008)Time dependent data is a main source of information in today’s data driven world.Generating this type of data though has shown its challenges and made it an interesting research area in the field of generative machine ... 
Ontogeny of Similarity and Disparity in LengthatAge of Coral Reef Fishes in the Family Acanthuridae between Marine Protected and Fished Areas
(201905)Drastic reductions in the harvestable biomass of exploited fish populations on coral reefs and other marine coastal ecosystems have been hypothesized to be a consequence of astronomical and unrelenting fishing pressures, ... 
Open Census for Addressing False Identity Attacks in Decentralized Social Networks
(201705)We address the problem of estimating the population of a given area (e.g., a city). Unlike a centralized census where identities are reported to a single principal agency (e.g., U.S. Census Bureau) and are stored on a ...
