This paper considers the Westervelt equation, one of the most widely used models in nonlinear acoustics, and seeks to recover two spatiallydependent parameters of physical importance from timetrace boundary measurements. Specifically, these are the nonlinearity parameter

Abstract often referred to as $\kappa (x)$ in the acoustics literature and the wave speed $B/A$ . The determination of the spatial change in these quantities can be used as a means of imaging. We consider identifiability from one or two boundary measurements as relevant in these applications. For a reformulation of the problem in terms of the squared slowness ${c}_{0}(x)$ and the combined coefficient $\mathfrak{s}=1/{c}_{0}^{2}$ we devise a frozen Newton method and prove its convergence. The effectiveness (and limitations) of this iterative scheme are demonstrated by numerical examples. $\eta =\frac{\kappa}{{c}_{0}^{2}}$ 
A theoretical analysis on crack formation and propagation was performed based on the coupling between the electrochemical process, classical elasticity, and fracture mechanics. The chemical potential of oxygen, thus oxygen partial pressure, at the oxygen electrodeelectrolyte interface (
) was investigated as a function of transport properties, electrolyte thickness and operating conditions (e.g., steam concentration, constant current, and constant voltage). Our analysis shows that: a lower ionic area specific resistance (ASR), ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{\mathit{OE\mid El}}$ and a higher electronic ASR ( ${r}_{i}^{OE},$ ) of the oxygen electrode/electrolyte interface are in favor of suppressing crack formation. The ${r}_{e}^{OE}$ thus local pO_{2}, are sensitive towards the operating parameters under galvanostatic or potentiostatic electrolysis. Constant current density electrolysis provides better robustness, especially at a high current density with a high steam content. While constant voltage electrolysis leads to greater variations of ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El},$ Constant current electrolysis, however, is not suitable for an unstable oxygen electrode because ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El}.$ can reach a very high value with a gradually increased ${\mu}_{{O}_{2}}^{OE\mid El}$ A crack may only occur under certain conditions when ${r}_{i}^{OE}.$ ${p}_{{O}_{2}}^{TPB}>{p}_{cr}.$ 
Abstract We measure the star cluster mass function (CMF) for the Local Group galaxy M33. We use the catalog of stellar clusters selected from the Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury: Triangulum Extended Region survey. We analyze 711 clusters in M33 with
, and log( $7.0<\mathrm{log}(\mathrm{Age}/\mathrm{yr})<8.5$M /M _{⊙}) > 3.0 as determined from color–magnitude diagram fits to individual stars. The M33 CMF is best described by a Schechter function with powerlaw slopeα = − , and truncation mass log( ${2.06}_{0.13}^{+0.14}$M _{c}/M _{⊙}) . The data show strong evidence for a highmass truncation, thus strongly favoring a Schechter function fit over a pure power law. M33's truncation mass is consistent with the previously identified linear trend between $=\phantom{\rule{0.50em}{0ex}}{4.24}_{0.13}^{+0.16}$M _{c}, and star formation rate surface density, Σ_{SFR}. We also explore the effect that individual cluster mass uncertainties have on derived mass function parameters, and find evidence to suggest that large cluster mass uncertainties have the potential to bias the truncation mass of fitted mass functions at the 1σ level. 
Abstract One of the cornerstone effects in spintronics is spin pumping by dynamical magnetization that is steadily precessing (around, for example, the
z axis) with frequencyω _{0}due to absorption of lowpower microwaves of frequencyω _{0}under the resonance conditions and in the absence of any applied bias voltage. The twodecadesold ‘standard model’ of this effect, based on the scattering theory of adiabatic quantum pumping, predicts that component of spin current vector ${I}^{{S}_{z}}$ is timeindependent while $({I}^{{S}_{x}}(t),{I}^{{S}_{y}}(t),{I}^{{S}_{z}})\propto {\omega}_{0}$ and ${I}^{{S}_{x}}(t)$ oscillate harmonically in time with a single frequency ${I}^{{S}_{y}}(t)$ω _{0}whereas pumped charge current is zero in the same adiabatic $I\equiv 0$ limit. Here we employ more general approaches than the ‘standard model’, namely the timedependent nonequilibrium Green’s function (NEGF) and the Floquet NEGF, to predict unforeseen features of spin pumping: namely precessing localized magnetic moments within a ferromagnetic metal (FM) or antiferromagnetic metal (AFM), whose conduction electrons are exposed to spin–orbit coupling (SOC) of either intrinsic or proximity origin, will pump both spin $\propto {\omega}_{0}$ and charge ${I}^{{S}_{\alpha}}(t)$I (t ) currents. All four of these functions harmonically oscillate in time at both even and odd integer multiples of the driving frequency $N{\omega}_{0}$ω _{0}. The cutoff order of such high harmonics increases with SOC strength, reaching in the onedimensional FM or AFM models chosen for demonstration. A higher cutoff ${N}_{\mathrm{m}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{x}}\simeq 11$ can be achieved in realistic twodimensional (2D) FM models defined on a honeycomb lattice, and we provide a prescription of how to realize them using 2D magnets and their heterostructures. ${N}_{\mathrm{m}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{x}}\simeq 25$ 
Abstract We present^{13}CO(
J = 1 → 0) observations for the EDGECALIFA survey, which is a mapping survey of 126 nearby galaxies at a typical spatial resolution of 1.5 kpc. Using detected^{12}CO emission as a prior, we detect^{13}CO in 41 galaxies via integrated line flux over the entire galaxy and in 30 galaxies via integrated line intensity in resolved synthesized beams. Incorporating our CO observations and optical IFU spectroscopy, we perform a systematic comparison between the line ratio and the properties of the stars and ionized gas. Higher ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}\equiv I{[}^{12}\mathrm{CO}(J=1\to 0)]/I{[}^{13}\mathrm{CO}(J=1\to 0)]$ values are found in interacting galaxies compared to those in noninteracting galaxies. The global ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$ slightly increases with infrared color ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$F _{60}/F _{100}but appears insensitive to other hostgalaxy properties such as morphology, stellar mass, or galaxy size. We also present azimuthally averaged profiles for our sample up to a galactocentric radius of 0.4 ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$r _{25}(∼6 kpc), taking into account the^{13}CO nondetections by spectral stacking. The radial profiles of are quite flat across our sample. Within galactocentric distances of 0.2 ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$r _{25}, the azimuthally averaged increases with the star formation rate. However, Spearman rank correlation tests show the azimuthally averaged ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$ does not strongly correlate with any other gas or stellar properties in general, especially beyond 0.2 ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$r _{25}from the galaxy centers. Our findings suggest that in the complex environments in galaxy disks, is not a sensitive tracer for ISM properties. Dynamical disturbances, like galaxy interactions or the presence of a bar, also have an overall impact on ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$ , which further complicates the interpretations of ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$ variations. ${\mathit{\ue23e}}_{12/13}$
