This study deals specifically with classical cubic splines. Based on
a lemma of John Rice, best approximation in the uniform norm by
cubic splines is explored. The purpose of this study is to
characterize the best approximation to a given continuous function
f(x) by a cubic spline with fixed knots...
In many schools, drugs, vandalism, assaults,
thefts, and violence against both students and teachers
have destroyed the orderly atmosphere needed for teaching
and learning. While juvenile criminal behavior,
both in school and elsewhere, is caused by a large and
complex set of sociological and psychological conditions,
there is evidence that...
This experiment is concerned with sampling submicrometer
particles in near sonic and supersonic flows.
The study employed a high volume condensation aerosol
generator to produce stearic acid particles having a
geometric mean diameter of 0.8 μm and a geometric
standard deviation of 1.28. The aerosol was diluted
with dry air...
