An Invitation to the Rogers–Ramanujan Identities
Andrew V. Sills, Georgia Southern University
10122017
Georgia Southern faculty member Andrew Sills authored An Invitation to the RogersRamanujan Identities.
Book Summary: The RogersRamanujan identities are a pair of infinite series—infinite product identities that were first discovered in 1894. Over the past several decades these identities, and identities of similar type, have found applications in number theory, combinatorics, Lie algebra and vertex operator algebra theory, physics (especially statistical mechanics), and computer science (especially algorithmic proof theory). Presented in a coherant and clear way, this will be the first book entirely devoted to the Rogers—Ramanujan identities and will include related historical material that is unavailable elsewhere.

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

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
