    • P.A.S.S. (Personnel Activated Security Device)sn 

      Jones, Adam; Diaz, Christopher; Davidson, Kevin; Wang, Zeyu
      P.A.S.S. is a multistage point-of-entry security device. The purpose is to use multiple methods of identification instead of relying on a single method. All three identification methods must be satisfied to be granted ...
    • Pair programming to facilitate the training of newly-hired programmers 

      Poff, Mark Anthony (2003-04-07)
      Pair programming is touted by some software professionals as a style which allows developers to produce superior code in less time, and with fewer defects, than code produced by individuals. However, the acclaim for the ...
    • Parametric interatomic potential for graphene 

      Tewary, Vinod K.; Yang, Bo (2009-02-27)
      A parametric interatomic potential is constructed for graphene. The potential energy consists of two parts: a bond energy function and a radial interaction energy function. The bond energy function is based on the ...

    • The peer-reviewing game 

      Silaghi, Marius Cӑlin; Yokoo, Makoto (2008-11-08)
      We model a family of peer-reviewing processes as game-theoretic problems. The model helps to understand elements of existing peer-reviewing procedures, and to predict the impact of new mechanisms. The peer-reviewing for ...
    • The period and amplitude changes in the coolest GW Virginis variable star (PG 1159-type) PG 0122+200 

      Vauclair, Gérard P.; Fu, Jianning; Solheim, Jan Erik; Kim, Seunglee; Dolez, Noël; Chevreton, M.; Chen, Li; Wood, Matt A.; Silver, Isaac M.; Bognár, Zs (2011-02-16)
      Context: The PG 1159 pre-white dwarf stars experiment a rapidly cooling phase with a time scale of a few 106 years. Theoretical models predict that the neutrinos produced in their core should play a dominant role in the ...
    • Periodic structure in the megaparsec-scale jet of pks 0637-752 

      Perlman, Eric S.; Godfrey, L.E.H.; Lovell, J.E.J.; Burke-Spolaor, S.; Ekers, R.; Bicknell, G.V.; Birkinshaw, M.; Worrall, D.M.; Jauncey, D.L.; Schwartz, D.A. (2012-10-20)
      We present 18 GHz Australia Telescope Compact Array imaging of the megaparsec-scale quasar jet PKS 0637–752 with angular resolution ~0farcs58. We draw attention to a spectacular train of quasi-periodic knots along the inner ...
    • Persistence and change in community composition of reef corals through present, past, and future climates 

      van Woesik, Robert; Edmunds, Peter J.; Adjeroud, Mehdi; Baskett, Marissa L.; Baums, Iliana B.; Budd, Ann F.; Carpenter, Robert C. C.; Fabina, Nicholas S.; Fan, Tungyung; Franklin, Erik C. (2014-10-01)
      The reduction in coral cover on many contemporary tropical reefs suggests a different set of coral community assemblages will dominate future reefs. To evaluate the capacity of reef corals to persist over various time ...
    • Personalized ranking of search results with implicitly learned user interest hierarchies 

      Kim, Hyoung-Rae; Chan, Philip K. (2005-04-19)
      Web search engines are usually designed to serve all users, without considering the interests of individual users. Personalized web search incorporates an individual user's interests when deciding relevant results to return. ...
    • Personalized web search by using learned user profiles in re-ranking 

      Hu, Jia (2008-04-30)
      Search engines return results mainly based on the submitted query; however, the same query could be in different contexts because individual users have different interests. To improve the relevance of search results, we ...
    • PHAD: packet header anomaly detection for identifying hostile network traffic 

      Mahoney, Matthew V.; Chan, Philip K. (2001-11-10)
      We describe an experimental packet header anomaly detector (PHAD) that learns the normal range of values for 33 fields of the Ethernet, IP, TCP, UDP, and ICMP protocols. On the 1999 DARPA off-line intrusion detection ...
    • Phase shifts and stable states on coral reefs 

      Dudgeon, Steve R.; Aronson, Richard B.; Bruno, John F.; Precht, William F. (2010-08-26)
      Recent transitions from coral to macroalgal dominance on some tropical reefs have engendered debate about their causes and effects. A widely accepted view is that reef environments support stable, alternative coral or ...
    • Phenotypic variance predicts symbiont population densities in corals: A modeling approach 

      van Woesik, Robert; Shiroma, Kazuyo; Köksal, Semen (2010-02-12)
      We test whether the phenotypic variance of symbionts (Symbiodinium) in corals is closely related with the capacity of corals to acclimatize to increasing seawater temperatures. Moreover, we assess whether more specialist ...
    • Photographic survey of benthos provides insights into the Antarctic fish fauna from the Marguerite Bay slope and the Amundsen Sea
