Some new techniques for the design of recursive digital filters
(1970)Two new digital filter design techniques are proposed for obtaining the transfer function, in the zdomain, of a recursive digital filter which is to simulate the performance of a given continuous filter. The first one ... 

SOME PROBLEMS CONCERNING THE MIGRATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF HELIUM4 AND RADON222 IN THE UPPER SEDIMENTS OF THE CRUST  A THEORETICAL MODEL; AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A QUADRUPOLE ION FILTER FOR MEASURING HELIUM AT THE SOILAIR INTERFACE
(1980)The generation, distribution, and migration process of helium4 and radon222 in the upper lithosphere and their fluxes at the soilair interface were extensively reviewed. Global baseline concentration values were obtained ... 
Some properties of a harmonic function in the neighborhood of an isolated singularity
(1953)Let R¯ be a closed and bounded region of the plane, let P be an interior point of R¯. Let u1(r,theta) be a function single valued and harmonic in R = R¯  {P} and having an isolated singularity at the point ... 
Some relations among Orlicz spaces
(1965)In this paper it is shown that for the study of Orlicz spaces the condition that a Young's function A be convex can be replaced by the more general (and more convenient) condition that A(x)/x be nondecreasing. Some ... 
Some responses of Hymenolepis diminuta to orchidectomy of the host
(1952)Beyond loss of the wellknown secondary sexual characteristics, there are several responses to castration in the male mammal which indicate that the male sex hormone is at least indirectly a controlling factor in some of ... 
SOME RESULTS FOR ESTIMATING BIVARIATE DENSITIES USING KERNEL, ORTHOGONAL SERIES AND PENALIZED LIKELIHOOD PROCEDURES
(1980)In this work, three extensions of univariate nonparametric probability density estimators into two dimensions are analyzed in terms of statistical and numerical properties. The asymptotically optimal smoothing parameters ... 
Some static and dynamic problems in plasticity
(1991)In part I of this thesis, we prove some regularity and uniqueness results of the minimizer for the problem$$\inf\{\int\sb\Omega \phi(Dv) + \int\sb{\partial\Omega} \vert{v  g}\vert dH\sp{n1} : v \in BV(\Omega), g \in ... 
Some theorems on feedback
(1960) 
Some thermo and galvanomagnetic properties of a bismuth crystal
(1932)The fractional changes, due to a magnetic field, in the electrical conductivity, in the thermal conductivity, and in the thermoelectric power of a single bismuth crystal are measured in these experiments. These changes are ... 
"Songs of Arion" for symphony orchestra (2010)
(2010)This work for symphony orchestra is written in memory of the composer Gustav Mahler (18601911), in honor of both the 150 th anniversary of his birth and the approaching 100th anniversary of his death. As such, it traces ... 
Sonority as a semiotic matrix of signification in French symbolist poetry
(2010)This document investigates a subject apparently rather traditional, perhaps even traditionalist: the exploration of the phonological, syntactical and semantical resources by means of which French symbolist poetry acts upon ...
