The seismic gap theory identifies regions of elevated hazard based on a lack of recent seismicity in comparison with other portions of a fault. It has successfully explained past earthquakes (see,â€¦ (More)

We will estimate the size of a random process (X t) tâˆˆT by the size of another (simpler) random process (Y t) tâˆˆT. Define a Gaussian centered process to be when X t is a mean-zero random variable.â€¦ (More)

The status and contents of the Reference Input Parameter Library (RIPL) are summarised. This input library provides an extensive database of model parameters for theoretical calculations of nuclearâ€¦ (More)

We begin this lecture by asking why should an arbitrary n Ã— n Gaussian matrix A be invertible? That is, does there exist a lower bound on the smallest singular value s n (A) = inf xâˆˆS nâˆ’1 Ax 2 â‰¥ c âˆšâ€¦ (More)
