Brain mapping data have been modeled as Gaussian random fields, and local increases in mean are detected by local maxima of a random field of test statistics derived from this data. Accurate P-values for local maxima are readily available for isotropic data based on the expected Euler characteristic of the excursion set of the test statistic random field.… (More)

We postulate that almost any motion of an interface between two crystals can produce a coupled tangential motion of the two crystals relative to each other which is proportional to the normal motion of the interface. Such translations can produce grain rotations ; the special case of the rotations of shrinking included circular cylindrical grains which… (More)

A surface free energy function is defined to be crystalline if its Wulff shape (the equilibrium crystal shape) is a polyhedron. All the questions that one considers for the area functional, where the surface free energy per unit area is 1 for all normal directions, can be considered for crystalline surface free energies. Such questions are interesting for… (More)

We use an expanded variational approach based on dissipation to study the motion of the boundary of a non-circular cylindrical, and thus essentially 2-dimensional, crystalline grain of arbitrary cross-section enclosed in another grain of the same material under conditions where the normal grain boundary motion is coupled to relative tangential motion of the… (More)

Four challenges to mathematics research posed by the field of materials science are given, plus an additional challenge purely from the field of geometric measure theory. The problems all concern the effects of surface and grain boundary free energy: motion by weighted mean curvature and/or surface diffusion and/or other kinetics, proofs of minimality of… (More)

We have developed a digital readout system for radiographic images using a scanning laser beam. In this system, electrostatic charge images on amorphous selenium (alpha-Se) plates are read out using photo-induced discharge (PID). We discuss the design requirements of a laser scanner for the PID system and describe its construction from commercially… (More)
