1 Thorne, Michael S.Viterbi sparse spike detectionAccurate interpretation of seismic traveltimes and amplitudes in the exploration and global scales is complicated by the band-limited nature of seismic data. We discovered a stochastic method to reduce a seismic waveform into a most probable constituent spike train. Model waveforms were constructed ...2013-01-01

16 Fernandez, Diego P.Near-criticality in dilute binary mixtures: distribution of azulene between coexisting liquid and vapor carbon dioxideThe equilibrium distribution of dilute solutes between vapor and liquid coexisting phases of near-critical solvents exhibits a simple dependence on the solvent's liquid density which extends over a wide temperature range; however, theory predicts this dependence only as an asymptotic limit. In order...Near-critical solvents; Azulene; Binary mixtures; Dilute solutions2002
