We bound the condition number of the Jacobian in pseudo arclength continuation problems, and we quantify the effect of this condition number on the linear system solution in a Newton GMRES solve. In pseudo arclength continuation one repeatedly solves systems of nonlinear equations F (u(s), λ(s)) = 0 for a real-valued function u and a real parameter λ, given(More)
Sublethal injury triggers long-lasting sensitization of defensive responses in most species examined, suggesting the involvement of powerful evolutionary selection pressures [1]. In humans, this persistent nociceptive sensitization is often accompanied by heightened sensations of pain and anxiety [2]. While experimental [3] and clinical [4] evidence support(More)
The Ornstein-Zernike (OZ) equations [1] can be used to find probability distributions of atoms in fluid states where the primary unknowns are the radial pair correlation function and the direct correlation function. In order to specify conditions of the state, certain parameters such as density and temperature are chosen. While one can find a single(More)
Self-injurious behaviour (SIB) in people with intellectual disability (ID) is an often persistent and sometimes life-threatening problem. Research suggests that body sites targeted by SIB are non-randomly distributed across the body (Symons & Thompson, 1997). Self-injury sites may also overlap with acupuncture analgesia (AA) sites, which has been linked to(More)
