A Gabor system is a collection of modulated and translated copies of a window function. If we have a signal in $L^2(\mathbb{R})$, it can be analyzed with a Gabor system generated by a certain window $g$ and then synthesized ...

We attempt to study the ability of asymptotic giant branch stars to produce s-process elements as a function of initial mass and metallicity. The normal methods of extracting information from spectroscopic observations of ...

Finally, we look at some nonabelian, real, Galois extensions K of Q , such that GK(2) is not free but has a free subgroup of index 2. In particular we focus on finite split metacyclic extensions and again we explicitly ...

We use modular forms to come up with an infinite family of groups that can be realized with just one finite ramifying prime. Namely, we establish that ramQ (GL2( F l)) = 1 for infinitely many primes l and for all primes ...
