  • Approximate lower bounds for the kinetic energy and magnetic flux dissipation for tungsten wire arrays on the Z pulsed-power accelerator at Sandia National Laboratories [R. B. Spielman et al., Phys. Plasmas 5, 2105 (1998)] are obtained. A procedure, extending previous work determining pinch inductance as a function of time [E. M. Waisman et al., Phys. Plasmas 11, 2009 (2004)], is introduced and applied to electrical and x-ray energy measurements. It employs the pinch energy balance to determine lower bounds for the plasma kinetic energy just before the main pinch reaches the axis and for the magnetic flux dissipation during stagnation.more » From the lower bound for the dissipated flux, a lower bound for pinch resistance after x-ray peak power is estimated. The results of applying the introduced energy balance procedure to selected tungsten wire array implosions on Z are given. It is believed that this is the first time that a measure of wire array Z-pinch resistance at stagnation is obtained purely from data analysis without recourse to specific assumptions on the plasma motion.« less

  • Computer programs for electric energy production based on the Monte Carlo simulation technique have long been used in the utility industry. One of the problems faced by users of such programs is the lack of measurement for precision on the results. A method for estimating confidence bounds on simulation results is proposed in this paper. These confidence bounds are expressed as functions of the outage parameters of generating units and can be easily calculated. The method can also be used to determine the number of simulation realizations needed to achieve a specified degree of precision, which may result in savingsmore » in computing time and cost.« less
  • Recently obtained bounds on the mass of the new neutral gauge bosons in E{sub 6} models using data from SN 1987A are reexamined and improved by the incorporation of {ital Z}-{ital Z}{prime} mixing effects and radiative corrections. The sensitivity of these bounds to the various model parameters, e.g., the ratio of Higgs vacuum expectation values (tan{beta}), is examined and, in some models, the value of tan{beta} can change the resulting {ital Z}{prime} mass bound by more than 400--600 GeV.
