Compatible Spatial Discretizations for Partial Differential Equations

Description: From May 11--15, 2004, the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications held a hot topics workshop on Compatible Spatial Discretizations for Partial Differential Equations. The numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDE) is a fundamental task in science and engineering. The goal of the workshop was to bring together a spectrum of scientists at the forefront of the research in the numerical solution of PDEs to discuss compatible spatial discretizations. We define compatible spat… more

Transformations of Toluene Radical Cation in ZSM-5 and Silicalite

Description: Toluene radical cations produced by {gamma} irradiation at 77 K in ZSM-5 and Silicalite (isomorphous with ZSM-5 but nonpolar) undergo a reversible transformation to the norbornadiene radical cation at temperatures {le}150K. The transformation occurs to a greater extent in the more polar zeolite (ZSM-5). The substrate concentration plays an important role. Toluene radical cations undergo ion-molecule reactions to give benzyl radicals at low substrate loading at temperatures >200 K. At higher con… more

Kinetic Effects on the Stability Properties of Field-reversed Configurations: II. Nonlinear Evolution

Description: Results of three-dimensional hybrid simulations of the field-reversed configuration (FRC) are presented. Emphasis of this work is on the nonlinear evolution of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) instabilities in kinetic FRCs. A wide range of ''bar s'' values is considered, where the ''bar s'' is the FRC kinetic parameter, which measures the number of ion gyroradii in the configuration. The linear and nonlinear stability of MHD modes with toroidal mode numbers n greater than or equal to 1 is investigated… more

Possible Incorporation of Neptunium in Uranyl (VI) Alteration Phases

Description: This study examines existing data on Np behavior from both spent fuel and borosilicate glass tests in effort to resolve issues concerning the selection of possible solubility limiting phases for neptunium and the methods for detecting neptunium at low levels in spent fuel. These issues were raised in a recent report by Finch and Fortner (2002) that argues that the Np analysis with Electron Energy-Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) reported by Buck et al., (1998) is incorrect and that based on a series of… more
