The Accretion and Obscured Growth of Supermassive Black Holes: First Constraints on the Local Heavily Obscured AGN Fraction with NuSTAR (Springer Theses)
The Accretion and Obscured Growth of Supermassive Black Holes: First Constraints on the Local Heavily Obscured AGN Fraction with NuSTAR (Springer Theses)
This thesis describes the application of state-of-the-art high-energy X-ray studies to the astronomical quest for understanding obscured active galactic nuclei (AGN). These AGN are supermassive black holes growing by accretion of matter located in the nuclei of galaxies. The material that feeds these black holes also obscures them from...

The Next Wave in Computing, Optimization, and Decision Technologies
Brown et al. (2004) (see also Reed 1994 and Skroch 2004) model the
completion of an adversarial nation’s nuclear-weapons program using
general techniques of PERT. (See PERT 1958 and Malcolm et al. 1959
for the original descriptions of PERT, and see Moder et al. 1983 for a
comprehensive review.) Brown et al. (2004) ask the

Asymmetric Warfare in South Asia: The Causes and Consequences of the Kargil Conflict
Asymmetric Warfare in South Asia: The Causes and Consequences of the Kargil Conflict

The 1999 conflict between India and Pakistan near the town of Kargil in contested Kashmir was the first military clash between two nuclear-armed powers since the 1969 Sino-Soviet war. Kargil was a landmark event not because of its duration or casualties, but because it contained a very real risk of nuclear escalation. Until the Kargil...

Science in the Age of Computer Simulation
Science in the Age of Computer Simulation

Computer simulation was first pioneered as a scientific tool in meteorology and nuclear physics in the period following World War II, but it has grown rapidly to become indispensible in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including astrophysics, high-energy physics, climate science, engineering, ecology, and economics. Digital computer...
