Developing a decision support tool for China's re-vegetation program: Simulating regional impacts of afforestation on average annual streamflow in the Loess Plateau
China is facing increased environmental pressures as its economy rapidly develops, with shortages of water potentially limiting development— especially in its dryer north and west. The highlyExpand

n -level density of the low-lying zeros of quadratic Dirichlet L -functions.
The Density Conjecture of Katz and Sarnak associates a classical compact group to each reasonable family of $L$-functions. Under the assumption of the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis, RubinsteinExpand

Discovering Spatial Patterns in Origin-Destination Mobility Data
We present a new methodology for detecting location patterns and spatial structures embedded in origin-destination movements, i.e. spatio-temporal patterns in the movements. Expand

On lp norms of weighted mean matrices
We study l p operator norms of weighted mean matrices using the approaches of Kaluza-Szegö and Redheffer. As an application, we prove a conjecture of Bennett.

Promoting Learner Autonomy through Developing Process Syllabus—Syllabus Negotiation: the Basis of Learner Autonomy*
In the 21st century, the importance of helping students become more autonomous in their learning has become one of its most prominent themes. Autonomy is usually defined as the capability to takeExpand

Categorization of resistive switching of metal-Pr0.7Ca0.3MnO3-metal devices
Resistive switching (RS) characteristics of a Pr0.7Ca0.3MnO3 (PCMO) film sandwiched between a Pt bottom electrode and top electrodes (TE) made of various metals are found to belong to two categories.Expand

Regionalization of forest pattern metrics for the continental United States using contiguity constrained clustering and partitioning
We used a novel regionalization algorithm, regionalization with dynamically constrained agglomerative clustering and partitioning, to identify hierarchical regions based on measures of forest extent, connectivity, and change for 2109 watersheds in the continental U.S. Expand

Identifying functionally connected habitat compartments with a novel regionalization technique
Landscape ecologists have increasingly turned to the use of landscape graphs in which a landscape is represented as a set of nodes (habitat patches) connected by links representingExpand

Effect of surfactants on the inertialess instability of a two-layer film flow
The effect of insoluble surface and interfacial surfactants on the inertialess instability of a two-fluid film flow down an inclined plane is investigated based on a normal mode analysis. The resultsExpand

Bedload Transport Resistance in Rough Open-Channel Flows
During bedload movement by saltation, streamwise momentum is transferred from the flow to the saltating grains. When the grains collide with other grains on the bed or in the flow, streamwise momentumExpand
