31. TABLE ERRATA for Magnus, Oberhettinger & Soni (1966): Formulas and Theorems for the Special Functions of Mathematical Physics
Topic: Math
Published: 2/16/2012
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: A TABLE ERRATA is submitted concerning a formula in terms of a sum of two Gauss hypergeometric functions for Ferrers function of the second kind. This error occurs on p. 167 of Magnus, Oberhettinger & Soni (1966) Formulas and Theorems for the Special ...

32. Towards a Metric for Communication Network Vulnerability to Attacks: A Game Theoretic Approach
Topic: Math
Published: 2/13/2012
Authors: Assane Gueye, Vladimir V Marbukh
Abstract: In this paper, we propose a quantification of the vulnerability of a communication network when links are subject to failures due to the actions of a strategic adversary. We model the adversarial nature of the problem as a 2-player game between a net ...

33. Social and Physical Aspects of Seismic Risk
Topic: Math
Published: 12/31/2011
Authors: Carmen Diego Gon¿alves, Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: Seismic risk has social and physical aspects: although very different in nature, they are intertwined and share striking similarities. Seismic risk assessment involves models and data, and judgments of the potential impact of earthquakes, which must ...

34. Mean Value Formulas for Twisted Edwards Curves
Topic: Math
Published: 11/3/2011
Author: Dustin Moody
Abstract: R. Feng and H.Wu recently established a certain mean-value formula for the coordinates of the n-division points on an elliptic curve given inWeierstrass form (A mean value formula for elliptic curves, 2010, available at ...

35. Bayesian Uncertainty Analysis for a Regression Model Versus Application of GUM Supplement 1 to the Least-Squares Estimate
Topic: Math
Published: 5/5/2011
Authors: Blaza Toman, Clemens Elster
Abstract: Application of least-squares as, for instance, in curve fitting is an important tool of data analysis in metrology. It is tempting to employ the supplement 1 to the GUM (GUM-S1) to evaluate the uncertainty associated with the resulting parameter esti ...

36. Arithmetic Progressions on Edwards Curves
Topic: Math
Published: 2/8/2011
Author: Dustin Moody
Abstract: We look at arithmetic progressions on elliptic curves known as Edwards curves. By an arithmetic progression on an elliptic curve, we mean that the x-coordinates of a sequence of rational points on the curve form an arithmetic progression. Previous ...

37. Changes
Topic: Math
Published: 1/3/2011
Author: Isabel M Beichl

38. Recommendation for Password-Based Key Derivation Part 1: Storage Applications
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-132
Topic: Math
Published: 12/22/2010
Authors: Meltem Sonmez Turan, Elaine B Barker, William Edward Burr, Lidong Chen
Abstract: This Recommendation specifies techniques for the derivation of master keys from passwords or passphrases to protect stored electronic data or data protection keys.

39. Biological Cell Feature Identification by a Modified Watershed-Merging Algorithm
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Math
Published: 11/24/2010
Authors: David E. Gilsinn, Kiran Bhadriraju, John T Elliott
Abstract: Biological cells are composed of many subsystems and organelles. The subsystem called the cytoskeleton is composed of long rod-shaped structures. They give the cell form and help attach the cell to the substrate and neighbors. One of the filaments is ...

40. Bicubic B-Spline Surface Approximation of Invariant Tori
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7731
Topic: Math
Published: 10/20/2010
Authors: Sita Ramamurti, David E. Gilsinn
Abstract: The invariant torus of a coupled system of Van der Pol oscillators is approximated using bicubic B-splines. The paper considers the case of strong nonlinear coupling. In particular, the shapes of invariant torii for the Van der Pol coupling parameter ...
