Contemporary Mathematics: Radon Transforms, Geometry, and Wavelets  AMS Book Series
Gestur Olafsson, Eric L. Grinberg, and David Larson et al.
112014
Georgia Southern University faculty member Shijun Zheng coauthored “Harmonic Analysis Related to Schrödinger Operators” in the publication Contemporary Mathematics in AMS Book Series.
Chapter Summary: In this article we give an overview on some recent development of LittlewoodPaley theory for Schrödinger operators. We extend the LittlewoodPaley theory for special potentials considered in the authors' previous work. We elaborate our approach by considering potential in C∞0 or Schwartz class in one dimension. In particular the low energy estimates are treated by establishing some new and refined asymptotics for the eigenfunctions and their Fourier transforms. We give maximal function characterization of the ... Read more

Partitions, qSeries, and Modular Forms
K. Alladi and F. Garvan
112012
Georgia Southern University faculty member Andrew Sills coauthored “Lecture Hall Sequences, qseries, and Asymmetric Partition Identities” in the publication Proceedings of the Conference on Partitions, qSeries, and Modular Forms, University of Florida, March 1216, 2008, Partitions, qseries, and Modular Forms in Developments in Mathematics.
Chapter Summary: We use generalized lecture hall partitions to discover a new pair of qseries identities. These identities are unusual in that they involve partitions into parts from asymmetric residue classes, much like the little Göllnitz partition theorems. We derive a twoparameter generalization of our identities that, surprisingly, gives new analytic counterparts of the little Göllnitz ... Read more

Privacy in Statistical Databases, Lecture Notes in Computer Science 7556
Joseph DomingoFerrer and Iienia Rinnirello
112012
Georgia Southern University faculty member Anna Oganian coauthored "Hybrid Microdata via ModelBased Clustering" in Privacy in Statistical Databases.
Chapter Summary: In this paper we propose a new scheme for statistical disclosure limitation which can be classified as a hybrid method of protection, that is, a method that combines properties of perturbative and synthetic methods. This approach is based on modelbased clustering with the subsequent synthesis of the records within each cluster. The novelty is that the clustering and synthesis methods have been carefully chosen to fit each other in view of reducing information loss. The modelbased clustering tries to obtain ... Read more

Georgia Southern University faculty members Ionut E. Iacob, T. Bruce McLean and Hua Wang coauthored “The Vﬂex, Triangle Orientation, and Catalan Numbers in Hexaﬂexagons” in the publication Martin Gardner in the TwentyFirst Century.
Chapter Summary: Regular hexaflexagons mysteriously change faces as you pinch flex them. This paper describes a different flex, the Vflex, which allows the hexahexaflexagon (with only 9 faces under the pinch flex) to have 3420 faces. The article goes on to explain the classification of triangle orientations in a hexaflexagon and to give an example of flexagon combinatorics.

Convergence Foundations of Topology
Szymon Dolecki, Burgundy University and Frédéric D. Mynard, Georgia Southern University
112009
Georgia Southern University faculty member Frédéric D. Mynard coauthored Convergence Foundations of Topology.
Book Summary: The textbook is an alternative to a classical introductory book in pointset topology. The approach, however, is radically different from the classical one. It is based on convergence rather than on open and closed sets. On the one hand, convergence of filters is a natural generalization of the basic and wellknown concept of convergence of sequences, so that convergence theory is more natural and intuitive to many, perhaps most, students than classical topology. On the other hand, the framework of convergence is easier, more powerful ... Read more
