    If one imagines the Gaussian primes to be lily pads in the pond of complex numbers, could a frog hop from the origin to infinity with jumps of bounded size? If the frog was confined to the real number line, the answer is no. Good heuristic arguments e . . .

    The moon landing in 1969, achieved despite of the complexity and the lack of computer power at the time, raises questions about various computational aspects of the mission. We present a model of the lunar docking problem, in which the optimal rendezv . . .

    The attributable risk is the fraction of outcomes in the population that would be reduced if the probability for a (higher probability) group were reduced to the probability for another (lower probability) group (Fleiss, et. al). We will use methods o . . .
