On the density of the sum of two independent Student t-random vectorsJun 16 2009In this paper, we find an expression for the density of the sum of two independent $d-$dimensional Student $t-$random vectors $\mathbf{X}$ and $\mathbf{Y}$ with arbitrary degrees of freedom. As a byproduct we also obtain an expression for the density ... More
Light-front representation of chiral dynamics in peripheral transverse densitiesMar 16 2015The nucleon's electromagnetic form factors are expressed in terms of the transverse densities of charge and magnetization at fixed light-front time. At peripheral transverse distances $b = O(M_\pi^{-1})$ the densities are governed by chiral dynamics and ... More
A simple stochastic model for the evolution of protein lengthsMar 26 2007Mar 26 2007We analyse a simple discrete-time stochastic process for the theoretical modeling of the evolution of protein lengths. At every step of the process a new protein is produced as a modification of one of the proteins already existing and its length is assumed ... More
Understanding Convolutional Neural Networks with A Mathematical ModelSep 14 2016Nov 02 2016This work attempts to address two fundamental questions about the structure of the convolutional neural networks (CNN): 1) why a non-linear activation function is essential at the filter output of every convolutional layer? 2) what is the advantage of ...

Dark Matter in a single-metric universeJan 04 2016Mar 01 2016A few years ago Baker proposed a metric, implementing the Bona-Stela construction, which interpolates smoothly between the Schwarzschild metric at small scales and the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) metric at large scales. As it stands, by enforcing ... More
Eccentric Binary Millisecond PulsarsJul 18 2009In this paper we review the recent discovery of several millisecond pulsars (MSPs) in eccentric binary systems. Timing these MSPs we were able to estimate (and in one case precisely measure) their masses. These results suggest that, as a class, MSPs have ... More
Azimuthal decorrelation of Mueller-Navelet jets at the Tevatron and the LHCApr 25 2007Nov 05 2008We study the production of Mueller-Navelet jets at hadron colliders in the Balitsky-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov (BFKL) framework. We show that a measurement of the relative azimuthal angle \Delta\Phi between the jets can provide a good testing ground for corrections ... More
High-dielectric constant and wide band gap inverse silver oxide phases of the ordered ternary alloys of SiO$_{2}$, GeO$_{2}$ and SnO$_{2}$Jul 14 2006Dec 01 2006High-dielectric constant and wide band gap oxides have important technological applications. The crystalline oxide polymorphs having lattice constant compatibility to silicon are particularly desirable. One recently reported candidate is the inverse silver ... More
Compton X-ray and Gamma-ray Emission from Extended Radio GalaxiesApr 06 2007The extended lobes of radio galaxies are examined as sources of X-ray and gamma-ray emission via inverse Compton scattering of 3K background photons. The Compton spectra of two exemplary examples, Fornax A and Centaurus A, are estimated using available ... More
Panchromatic Views of Large-scale Extragalactic JetsDec 14 2006Highlights of recent observations of extended jets in AGN are presented. Specifically, we discuss new spectral constraints enabled by Spitzer, studies of the highest-redshift (z~4) radio/X-ray quasar jets, and a new VLBA detection of superluminal motion ... More
FIRST `Winged' and `X'-shaped Radio Source CandidatesJan 10 2007Mar 16 2008A small number of double-lobed radio galaxies (17 from our own census of the literature) show an additional pair of low surface brightness `wings', thus forming an overall `X'-shaped appearance. The origin of the wings in these radio sources is unclear. ... More
Single crystal growth and anisotropy of CeRuPOSep 26 2007Dec 05 2007We report on the single crystal growth of the ferromagnetic Kondo lattice system CeRuPO using a Sn flux method. Magnetic susceptibility and electrical resistivity measurements indicate strong anisotropy of this structurally layered compound. They evidence ... More
Chiral dynamics and peripheral transverse densitiesAug 07 2013In the partonic (or light-front) description of relativistic systems the electromagnetic form factors are expressed in terms of frame-independent charge and magnetization densities in transverse space. This formulation allows one to identify the chiral ... More
Transverse charge and magnetization densities in the nucleon's chiral peripheryOct 02 2013In the light-front description of nucleon structure the electromagnetic form factors are expressed in terms of frame-independent transverse densities of charge and magnetization. Recent work has studied the transverse densities at peripheral distances ... More
8--13 micron spectroscopy of luminous and ultraluminous infrared galaxiesMar 17 1999New moderate-resolution mid-infrared spectroscopy at 10 micron of 27 infrared galaxies is presented. The galaxies have been chosen from three 60 micron selected and one 12 micron selected complete flux-limited catalogs of galaxies; 17 of these sources ... More
Torsion cohomology classes and algebraic cycles on complex projective manifoldsMar 16 2004Jan 15 2005Atiyah and Hirzebruch gave examples ofeven degree torsion classes in the singularcohomology of a smooth complex projective manifold, which arenot Poincar\'{e} dual to an algebraiccycle. We notice that the order ofthese classes are small comparedto the ... More
