Mixed lattice phases in cold dense matter
Over a wide density range, the ground state of cold neutral matter in the absence of external magnetic fields is a degenerate sea of electrons containing a lattice of nuclei. In certain densityExpand
Identification of Streamflow Stochastic Models
The identification of streamflow stochastic models is explored. The identification of the type of stochastic model is made, based on a conceptual physical representation of natural watershed. TheExpand
