      Sending a message to a destination anonymously so that the destination cannot figure out who the originator was, and ensuring that the message reaches the destination untampered with, can be a difficult problem. Chaum's ...
    • Using observations of distant quasars to constrain quantum gravity 

      Perlman, Eric S.; Ng, Yeejack; Floyd, David J.E.; Christiansen, Wayne A. (2011-11-23)
      Aims. The small-scale nature of spacetime can be tested with observations of distant quasars. We comment on a recent paper by Tamburini et al. (2011, A&A, 533, A71) which claims that Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations ...
    • Using Variations of Shape and Appearance in Alignment Methods for Classifying Human Actions

      Wood, Matt A.; Still, Martin D.; Howell, Steve B.; Cannizzo, John K.; Smale, Alan P. (2011-10-24)
      We report on the analysis of the Kepler short-cadence (SC) light curve of V344 Lyr obtained during 2009 June 20 through 2010 March 19 (Q2-Q4). The system is an SU UMa star showing dwarf nova (DN) outbursts and superoutbursts, ...
    • Validity and Reliability of a Mini - Situational Judgment Test (SJT) for Pilots 

      Shi, Lu (2014-07)
      Situational judgment test (SJT) was developed by Hunter (2002) to test pilot judgment. SJT is very useful. However, this test takes too long for participants to complete. A mini-SJT was developed with shortened questions. ...
    • Variability timescales in the M87 jet: signatures of E^2 losses, discovery of a quasi period in HST-1, and the site of TeV flaring 

      Harris, Daniel E.; Cheung, Chi C.; Stawarz, Łukasz; Biretta, J. A.; Perlman, Eric S. (2009-06-11)
      We investigate the variability timescales in the jet of M87 with two goals. The first is to use the rise times and decay times in the radio, ultraviolet, and X-ray light curves of HST-1 to constrain the source size and the ...
    • The Variation in the Occurrence of Diatoms in the External Mucus of Florida Sharks
