The kissing number problem is a packing problem in geometry where one has to fi nd the maximum number of congruent non-overlapping copies of a given body so that they can be arranged each touching a common copy. The ...

On the Relationship between Criminal History and Racial Discrimination in Labor Markets: Evidence from the Field 

Griffin, Joshua (2013-07-23)
It has been shown in the literature that any contact at all with the criminal justice system presents an individual with a significant challenge in obtaining employment. It has also been shown that African-Americans are ...

On the Robustness and Privacy of Distributed Machine Learning 

Liu, Tian (2022-07-26)
Machine learning has recently gained tremendous interest due to its capabilities in producing predictive models in a wide variety of applications, such as objective detection and recommendation services. Meanwhile, the ...

On the role of 1-LC and semi 1-LC properties in determining the fundamental group of a one point union of spaces 

Moore, Emilia (2006-05-15)
Concerning the fundamental group of spaces written as a union of two topological spaces, the result by Seifert and van Kampen is well known and frequently used. Over the years there have been various theorems published ...

On the Spectrum of Minimal Covers By Triples 

Castellana, Vincent (2006-08-15)
A Minimal Cover by Triples is an ordered pair (V,T) where V is a finite set and T is a collection of three element subsets of V with two properties. First, that every pair of elements of V appear together in at least ...

On the study of atomic and molecular processes affecting Astrophysical Plasma using high-resolution optical and UV spectroscopy 

Nemer, Ahmad (2019-06-13)
Rydberg Enhanced Recombination (RER), a recombination process related to dielectronic recombination in which electrons are captured into energy states below the ionization threshold, has been theoretically predicted to ...

On Translative Packing Densities in $E^2$ and $E^3$ 

He, Yangyang (2023-12-01)  ETD File Embargoed
The theory of packing and covering is an essential part of discrete geometry. In this dissertation we focus on and contribute to the knowledge on the densities of translative and lattice packings in $E^{2}$ and ...

On Variable Selection for Data-Driven Soft Sensor Development with Application to Industrial Processes
