Intermittency via moments and distributions in central O+Cu collisions at 14. 6 A[center dot]GeV/c
Fluctuations in pseudorapidity distributions of charged particles from central (ZCAL) collisions of [sup 16]O+Cu at 14.6 A[center dot]GeV/c have been analyzed by Ju Kang using the method of scaled factorial moments as a function of the interval [delta][eta] an apparent powerlaw growth of moments with decreasing interval is observed down to [delta][eta] [approximately] 0.1, and the measured slope parameters are found to obey two scaling rules. Previous experience with E[sub T] distributions suggested that fluctuations of multiplicity and transverse energy can be well described by Gamma or Negative Binomial Distributions (NBD) and excellent fits to NBD were obtained in allmore »

Calculation of threedimensional groundwater transport using secondorder moments
Groundwater transport of contaminants from the FArea seepage basin at the Savannah River Plant (SRP) was calculated using a threedimensional, secondorder moment technique. The numerical method calculates the zero, first, and second moment distributions of concentration within a cell volume. By summing the moments over the entire solution domain, and using a Lagrangian advection scheme, concentrations are transported without numerical dispersion errors. Velocities obtained from field tests are extrapolated and interpolated to all nodal points; a variational analysis is performed over the threedimensional velocity field to ensure mass consistency. Transport predictions are calculated out to 12,000 days. 28 refs., 9more » 
Secondorder sum and differencefrequency generation via quadrupole transitions in atomic vapors
The inclusion of highermultipole terms in the interaction of light with matter allows secondorder nonlinear processes to be observed in isotropic media. These processes may be useful for both generating new wavelengths of radiation and measuring atomic or molecular quadrupole transition moments otherwise hard to determine. After a brief theoretical introduction, the experimental arrangement used to observe quadrupole sumfrequency generation is shown. Generally, the characteristics of the observed output agree with those predicted: the output shows the sharp twophoton resonance expected from the expression for chi/sup (Q)/ and the expected variation with k vector mismatch. At high densities and inputmore »
