The propagation of Lyman-alpha in evolving protoplanetary disksJul 18 2011We study the role resonant scattering plays in the transport of Lyman-alpha photons in accreting protoplanetary disk systems subject to varying degrees of dust settling. While the intrinsic stellar FUV spectrum of accreting T Tauri systems may already ... More
On the occurrence of large gaps in small contingency tablesDec 03 2009Examples of small contingency tables on binary random variables with large integer programming gaps on the lower bounds of cell entries were constructed by Sullivant. We argue here that the margins for which these constructed large gaps occur are rarely ... More
