Irreducible Representations of Line Groups: the Dynamics of Polymer Chains

Description: Abstract: "The symmetries of infinite polymer chain molecules are discussed using the concept of line groups. Explicit directions are given for obtaining the irreducible representations of line groups employing the formalism developed for three-dimensional space groups. Line groups containing primitive and nonprimitive operations are discussed. Detailed considerations of the line group Vh are given with specific applications to the polyethylene molecule. Directions for generating symmetry-adapted vibrational coordinates for chain molecules are outlined."

Design of two-dimensional channels with prescribed velocity distribution along the channel walls 1: relaxation solutions

Description: Report presenting a general method of design is developed for two-dimensional unbranched channels with prescribed velocities as a function of arc length along the channel walls. The method is developed for both incompressible and compressible, irrational, nonviscous flow. Five numerical examples are given including three elbow designs with the same prescribed velocity as a function of arc length along the channel walls but with incompressible, linearized compressible, and compressible flow.

Global paths of time-periodic solutions of the Benjamin-Ono equation connecting arbitrary traveling waves

Description: We classify all bifurcations from traveling waves to non-trivial time-periodic solutions of the Benjamin-Ono equation that are predicted by linearization. We use a spectrally accurate numerical continuation method to study several paths of non-trivial solutions beyond the realm of linear theory. These paths are found to either re-connect with a different traveling wave or to blow up. In the latter case, as the bifurcation parameter approaches a critical value, the amplitude of the initial condition grows without bound and the period approaches zero. We propose a conjecture that gives the mapping from one bifurcation to its counterpart on the other side of the path of non-trivial solutions. By experimentation with data fitting, we identify the form of the exact solutions on the path connecting two traveling waves, which represents the Fourier coefficients of the solution as power sums of a finite number of particle positions whose elementary symmetric functions execute simple orbits in the complex plane (circles or epicycles). We then solve a system of algebraic equations to express the unknown constants in the new representation in terms of the mean, a spatial phase, a temporal phase, four integers (enumerating the bifurcation at each end of the path) and one additional bifurcation parameter. We also find examples of interior bifurcations from these paths of already non-trivial solutions, but we do not attempt to analyze their algebraic structure.

STUDY OF PION-PION SCATTERING FROM THE REACTION $pi$$sup +$ + p $Yields$ $pi$$sup +$ + $pi$$sup +$ + n AT 1.25 AND 1.75 Bev/c (thesis)

Description: The equipment and procedure used in measuring the distribution of energy and angle of recoil of neutrons from the reaction pi /sup +/ + p yields pi / sup +/ + pi /sup +/ + n for incident pion mome nta of 1.25 and 1.75 Bev/c are explained. Utilization of the plastic scintillator detectors is given particular attention. Data on the cross section for pion-pion scattering are presented and analyzed. (22 references.) (D.C.W.)

Application of the Method of Coordinate Perturbation to Unsteady Duct Flow

Description: The method of coordinate perturbation is applied to the unsteady flow of a compressible fluid in ducts of variable cross section. Solutions, in the form of perturbation series, are obtained for unsteady flows in ducts for which the logarithmic derivative of area variation with respect to the space coordinate is a function of the 'smallness' parameter of the perturbation series. This technique is applied to the problem of the interaction of a disturbance and a shock wave in a diffuser flow. It is found that, for a special choice of the function describing the disturbance, the path of the shock wave can be expressed in closed form to first order. The method is then applied to the determination of the flow field behind a shock wave moving on a prescribed path in the x,t-plane. Perturbation series solutions for quite general paths are developed. The perturbation series solutions are compared with the more exact solutions obtained by the application of the method of characteristics. The approximate solutions are shown to be in reasonably accurate agreement with the solutions obtained by the method of characteristics.

Separation of Tuballoy From Gunk Solutions by Sulfite Precipitation

Description: Summary: A method is presented for the precipitation of tuballoy, apparently as a tubanyl ammonium sulfite, from gunk solutions containing the contaminants encountered in the recovery cycle. The impurities are not precipitated under the conditions employed, and their amounts in the product are reduced to values which can be attributed to occlusion. The recovery of tuballoy on one precipitation ranges from 99.5% to 99.9%.

Plutonium Nitrate Shipping Investigation

Description: With the AEC complex there has been a long history of shipper-receiver assay differences in the transfer of plutonium nitrate solutions. Since the AEC is considering establishing plutonium nitrate as one of the chemical forms of plutonium for Commission purchase of privately produced plutonium, it is necessary that the shipper-receiver problem be resolved. The program formulated by Rocky Flats for doing this, and the results obtained to date, are discussed. (auth)

Simultaneously Bound Guests and Chiral Recognition: A Chiral Self-Assembled Supramolecular Host Encapsulates Hydrophobic Guests

Description: Driven by the hydrophobic effect, a water-soluble, chiral, self-assembled supramolecular host is able to encapsulate hydrophobic organic guests in aqueous solution. Small aromatics can be encapsulated in the supramolecular assembly, and the simultaneous encapsulation of multiple guests is observed in many cases. The molecular host assembly is able to recognize different substitutional isomers of disubstituted benzenes with ortho substitution leading to the encapsulation of two guests, but meta or para substitution leading to the encapsulation of only one guest. The scope of hydrophobic guest encapsulation is further explored with chiral natural product guests. Upon encapsulation of chiral guests into the racemic host, diastereomeric host-guest complexes are formed with observed diastereoselectivities of up to 78:22 in the case of fenchone.

Problem Proposed for the American Mathematical Monthly

Description: The problem is to define: P(x) := {Sigma}{sub k = 1}{sup {infinity}} arctan (x - 1/(k + x + 1) {radical}(k + 1) + (k + 2) {radical}(k + x)). (1) (a) Find explicit, finite-expression evaluations of P(n) for all integers n {ge} 0. (b) Show {tau} := lim{sub x {yields} -1{sup +}} P(x) exists, and find an explicit evaluation for {tau}. (c) Are there a more general closed forms for P, say at half-integers? Solution with the abbreviations: r := {radical} (k + 1), s := {radical} (k + x) the argument of arctan in (1) becomes s{sup 2} - r{sup 2}/(s{sup 2} + 1) r + (r{sup 2} + 1) s = s - r/r s + 1 = 1/r - 1/s / 1 + 1/r 1/s.

WATEQF: A FORTRAN IV Version of WATEQ, a Computer Program for Calculating Chemical Equilibrium of Natural Waters

Description: Abstract: WATEQF is a FORTRAN IV computer program that models the thermodynamic speciation of inorganic ions and complex species in solution for a given water analysis. The original version (WATEQ) was written in 1973 by A. H. Truesdell and B. F. Jones in Programming Language/one (PL/1). With but a few exceptions, the thermochemical data, speciation, activity coefficients, and general calculation procedure of WATEQF is identical to the PL/1 version. This report notes the differences between WATEQF and WATEQ, demonstrates how to set up the input data to execute WATEQF, provides a test case for comparison, and makes available a listing of WATEQF.
