• #### Criterion for interchange instability in the plasma sheet ﻿

(2008)
Interchange instability is an important dynamic mechanism in plasma physics and has been advanced as an explanation of a variety of phenomena in the magnetospheric physics. This work derives a new instability criterion for ...
• #### Critic Can't Crouch About 'Kismet' -- 'A Wry Fairy Tale' ﻿

(1959-04-10)
• #### Critic, Author Riesman Begins Three-Day Visit ﻿

(1963-10-16)
• #### CRITICAL DYNAMICS OF LIQUID CRYSTAL ABOVE THE ISOTROPIC - NEMATIC PHASE TRANSITION ﻿

(1981)
Dynamics of liquid crystals above the isotropic-nematic phase transition point is studied. The phase transition is of first-order, but nearly critical. Near the transition point the correlation length (zeta) of molecular ...

• #### Critical point pressure sensitivity ﻿

(2002)
A new means of heat transfer known as the piston effect was identified in 1989. The piston effect is where the expanding thermal boundary layer acts like a piston which compresses the bulk fluid. An examination of the ...
• #### Critical points of the determinant of the Laplace operator ﻿

(1993)
The determinant of the Laplace operator, det $\Delta$, is a function on the set of metrics on a compact manifold. Generalizing the work of Osgood, Phillips, and Sarnak on surfaces, we consider one-parameter variations of ...
• #### Critical quadrupole fluctuations and collective modes in iron pnictide superconductors ﻿

(2016)
The multiband nature of iron pnictides gives rise to a rich temperature-doping phase diagram of competing orders and a plethora of collective phenomena. At low dopings, the tetragonal-to-orthorhombic structural transition ...
• #### Critical Riemannian metrics ﻿

(1990)
Let $(M,g)$ be a compact oriented n-dimensional smooth Riemannian manifold. Consider the following quadratic Riemannian functional$$SR(g) = \int\sb{M}\ \vert R\sb{ijkl}(g)\vert \sp{2}d\mu$$which is homogeneous of degree ...
• #### Critical state models for cyclic loading of K(o)-consolidated clay ﻿

(1997)
An anisotropic critical state model for monotonic and cyclic loading of Ko-consolidated clay is presented, based on extension of an existing model. First, the performance of two existing critical state models is evaluated ...
• #### Critical Theorist Burke to Assay Symbolic Motives ﻿

(1965-02-11)
• #### Critical Uncertainties and Gaps in the Environmental- and Social-Impact Assessment of the Proposed Interoceanic Canal through Nicaragua ﻿

(2016)
The proposed interoceanic canal will connect the Caribbean Sea with the Pacific Ocean, traversing Lake Nicaragua, the major freshwater reservoir in Central America. If completed, the canal would be the largest infrastruc ...
