Some existence and uniqueness results of harmonic maps
(1990)This thesis discusses some existence and uniqueness problems of harmonic maps. It consists of two parts: Part I. Existence of harmonic maps with prescribed finite singularities. Here we address the question of existence ... 
Some flow properties of liquid helium II
(1953)The properties of pressureinduced flow of liquid helium II have been studied by the observation of the temperature and pressure dependence of the flow in narrow channels. The channels are in the form of an annular slit ... 
Some generalizations for Dirichlet series of Hadamard's theorem, with applications
(1944)Abstract Not Available. 
SOME HYDROGENATION, OXIDATION, AND ISOMERIZATION REACTIONS OVER ZIRCONIUMDIOXIDE CATALYST
(1980)The mechanisms and selectivities of several hydrogenation, isomerization, and partial oxidation reactions that occur over a zirconia catalyst were investigated. The thermal stability of the catalyst in air and in vacuum ... 
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 ...
