Grid computing is taught at the University of Arkansas, focusing on the development of grid services, the Globus toolkit, and higher-level grid components. An early course, cluster and grid computing, successfully taught Globus materials to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. However, the material assumed advanced knowledge of Java(More)
The Prime Number Theorem asserts that the number of primes less than or equal to x is approximately equal to x log x for large values of x (here and for the rest of these notes, log denotes the natural logarithm). This quantitative statement about the distribution of primes which was conjectured by several mathematicians (including Gauss) early in the(More)
This is an introduction to the method of Chabauty and Coleman, a p-adic method that attempts to determine the set of rational points on a given curve of genus g ≥ 2. We present the method, give a few examples of its implementation in practice, and discuss its effectiveness. An appendix treats the case in which the curve has bad reduction. 1. Rational points(More)

Agricultural and extension education--or some derivative name--is a field of study leading to the doctoral degree in universities around the world. Is there are body of knowledge or a taxonomy of the knowledge--e.g., a knowledge domain--that one should possess with a doctorate in agricultural and extension education? The purpose of this paper was to(More)
