In this article, we study the p-ordinary Iwasawa theory of the (conjectural) Rubinâ€“Stark elements defined over abelian extensions of a CM field F and develop a rank-g Eulerâ€“Kolyvagin system machinery (where Graphic), refining and generalizing...
PEO-PPO-PEO Triblock Copolymers In Aqueous Solutions: Micellization & Self-Assembly Into Fiberlike Aggregates by Ece Aytan A Thesis Submitted to the Graduate School of Sciences Engineering in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree...
Observations of lightning-induced electron precipitation (LEP) events at three geographic regions show characteristics which systematically vary with both longitude and hemisphere. These observations are quantitatively interpreted using a novel...
The buckling of biopolymers is a frequently studied phenomenon The influence of thermal fluctuations on the buckling transition is, however, often ignored and not completely understood. A quantitative theory of the buckling of a wormlike chain...
An automated algorithm for detecting chorus and hiss emissions in ground-based extremely low frequency/very low frequency (ELF/VLF) wave receiver data is developed and applied to 10 years of data collected at Palmer Station, Antarctica (L = 2.4, 50...
We introduce a random walk in random environment associated to an underlying directed polymer model in 1 + 1 dimensions. This walk is the positive temperature counterpart of the competition interface of percolation and arises as the limit of...
Whistler mode waves in the magnetosphere play an important role in the energy dynamics of the Earth's radiation belts. Previous theoretical work has been extended to include ions in the fully adiabatic warm plasma theory. Using a finite electron...
In this paper, we construct (many) Kolyvagin systems out of Stickelberger elements utilizing ideas borrowed from our previous work on Kolyvagin systems of Rubin-Stark elements. The applications of our approach are twofold. First, assuming Brumerâ€™s...
Quantum-scattering calculations at ultralow (close to 10(-6) cm(-1)) collision energies are carried out for the Cs dimer in its spin-stretched triplet state, interacting with helium. An ab initio potential energy surface is computed and employed,...
The denaturation transition which takes place in circular DNA is analyzed by extending the Poland-Scheraga (PS) model to include the winding degrees of freedom. We consider the case of a homopolymer whereby the winding number of the double-stranded...
We have obtained exact results for the Ising model on a hierarchical lattice incorporating three key features characterizing many real-world networks-a scale-free degree distribution, a high clustering coefficient, and the small-world effect. By...
Near-infrared emitting semiconductor quantum dots (NIRQDs) are popular fluorescent probes due to better penetration depth and elimination of tissue autofluorescence. Here, we demonstrate one pot aqueous synthesis of cytocompatible, strongly...
Modulated High Frequency (few MHz) heating of the D-region ionosphere under
the auroral electrojet is capable of generating extremely low frequency (ELF) radio waves
in the few kilohertz range by affecting the conductivity of the D-region. The HF...

In this paper we set up a general Kolyvagin system machinery for Euler systems of rank r (in the sense of Perrin- Riou) associated to a large class of Galois representations, building on our previous work on Kolyvagin systems of Rubin-Stark units...
This study explores the manner in which the plasmapause is responsible for dictating which magnetospheric source regions of ELF/VLF chorus are able to propagate to and be received by midlatitude stations on the ground. First, we explore the effects...
