In this paper, we give several results on area minimizing surfaces in strictly mean convex 3-manifolds. First, we study the genus of absolutely area minimizing surfaces in a compact, orientable, strictly mean convex 3-manifold M bounded by a simple...
We construct the most general physically admissible positive-definite inner product on the space of Proca fields. Up to a trivial scaling this defines a five-parameter family of Lorentz invariant inner products that we use to construct a genuine...
We present cosmological solutions for (1+3+n)-dimensional steady state universe in dilaton gravity with an arbitrary dilaton coupling constant w and exponential dilaton self-interaction potentials in the string frame. We focus particularly on the...

We study one- and two-photon scattering from a qubit embedded in a one-dimensional waveguide in the presence of modal dispersion. We use a resolvent based analysis and utilize techniques borrowed from the Lee model studies. Modal dispersion leads...

Motivated by the spare parts distribution system of a major automotive manufacturer in Turkey, we consider a multicommodity distribution problem from a central depot to a number of geographically dispersed demand points. The distribution of the...
Let k be a field of characteristic zero, and let k[epsilon](n) :=k[epsilon]/(epsilon(n)). We construct an additive dilogarithm Li(2,n) : B(2) (k[epsilon](n))-> k(circle plus(n-1)), where B(2) is the Bloch group which is crucial in studying weight...
We introduce the optimal obstacle placement with disambiguations problem wherein the goal is to place true obstacles in an environment cluttered with false obstacles so as to maximize the total traversal length of a navigating agent (NAVA). Prior...
We consider two types of spatial symmetry, namely, symmetry in the mixed or shared nearest neighbor (NN) structures. We use Pielouâ€™s and Dixonâ€™s symmetry tests which are defined using contingency tables based on the NN relationships between the...
We present a coverage metric targeted at shared-memory concurrent programs: the Location Pairs (LP) coverage metric. The goals of this metric are (i) to measure how thoroughly a program has been tested from a concurrency standpoint, i.e., whether...
