  • Hartmann, P.; Kovacs, A. Z.; Douglass, A. M.; Carmona-Reyes, J.; Matthews, L. S.; Hyde, T. W. (Physical Review Letters, )
    We report complex plasma experiments, assisted by numerical simulations, providing an alternative qualitative link between the macroscopic response of polycrystalline solid matter to small shearing forces and the possible ...
  • Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Journal of Physics A, )
    The dynamics of Saturn's F ring have been a matter of curiosity ever since Voyagers 1 and 2 sent back pictures of the ring's unusual features. Some of these images showed three distinct ringlets with the outer two displaying ...
  • Smith, Bernard; Vasut, John; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell; Reay, Jerry; Cook, Mike; Schmoke, Jimmy (Advances in Space Research, )
    Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those in protostellar clouds, planetary rings or cometary environments, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of the inter-particle potential energy to ...
  • Barge, Laura; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Advances in Space Research, )
    Initially uncharged grains in space and laboratory plasma environments become charged due to currents driven by potential differences in the dusty plasma. Certain macroscopic effects such as coagulation of smaller grains ...
  • Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, )
    A numerical model with broad applications to complex (dusty) plasmas is presented. The self-consistent N-body code allows simulation of the coagulation of fractal aggregates, including the charge-dipole interaction of the ...
  • Vasut, John; Hyde, Truell; Barge, Laura (Advances in Space Research, )
    Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those found in planetary rings or comets, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of the inter-particle potential energy to average kinetic energy is large ...
  • Boesse, Carolyn; Henry, Michael; Hyde, Truell; Matthews, Lorin (Advances in Space Research, )
    Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those found in planetary rings or cometary environments, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of interparticle potential energy to average kinetic energy ...
  • Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Advances in Space Research, )
    Saturn’s dynamic F-Ring still presents a challenge for understanding and explaining the kinematic processes that lead to the changing structure visible in our observations of this ring. This study examines the effect of ...
  • Umorin, Mikhail Pavlovich.
    The objective of this study was to develop a computer simulation that successfully predicted chlorophyll-a dynamics in Lake Waco. A small-scale batch culture was used to elucidate intrinsic growth rate and how it was ...
  • Scott, J. Thad (Jefferson Thad). (Wilmington, N.C : Society of Wetland ScientistsOldendorf/Luhe, Germany : Inter-Research, )
    In this study, the factors influencing the development of a nutrient availability gradient in a wetland ecosystem and the subsequent controls to, and feedbacks from, the structure and function of the periphyton community ...
  • Maroun, Mariette. (Orlando, FL : International Publications., )
    In this dissetation, we seek positive solutions for the n^th order ordinary differential equation, y^(n)=f(x,y), satisfying the right focal boundary conditions, y^(i)(0)=y^(n-2)(p)=y^(n-1)(1)=0, i=0,...,n-3, where p is a ...
  • Grinols, Earl L.; Lin, Hwan C.
    Much of the dynamic literature on intellectual property protection (IPP) arrays goods along a segment of the real line, one endpoint of which expands with innovation. A single margin of innovation brings computational ...
  • Grinols, Earl L.; Silva, Peri A.
    Proving the existence of equilibrium having specified properties is often synonymous with proving the result in trade theory. The Grandmont-McFadden proposition that any autarkic allocation can be replaced by a Pareto ...
  • Gwin, Carl R.
    This study investigates the relationship between consumer search costs, inflation, and firm markups in retail trade by employing actual measures of search cost. Consistent with theory, results indicate that markups can be ...
  • Gwin, Carl R.; Ong, Seow-Eng
    This paper attempts to fill two gaps in the homeownership literature identified by Dietz and Haurin (2003): homeownership in less developed countries and the effects of race, ethnicity and income on tenure choice. We use ...
  • North, Charles, M.; Staha, Melissa B.
    We conduct an empirical test of the relationship between religious pluralism and religious participation in U.S. counties using a fixed-effects panel estimation technique. The empirical technique allows us to control for ...
  • Nicholson, Kristin A.; North, Charles M.
    In the 1970’s and 1980’s, courts in most U.S. states adopted some type of common law wrongful discharge cause of action. The various causes of action for wrongful discharge are generally placed into three categories: public ...
  • Gwin, Carl R.; North, Charles M.
    This paper explores the determinants and implications of church-state relationships. A theoretical model of a government’s decision to establish, or disestablish, a state church is developed and then tested with data from ...
  • Grinols, Earl L.; Henderson, James W.
    Monopoly response to buyers who pay fraction c of the product cost is to raise the buyer price for the initial quantity q0 from p0 to 1/c p0, and adjust to a different price and quantity only if profits are thereby raised ...
  • Daniels, Joseph P.; VanHoose, David D.
    The standard time-inconsistency-based explanation for the negative correlation between openness and inflation requires an inverse relationship between the sacrifice ratio and openness, but Daniels et al. (forthcoming) ...
