An undetected topology change caused by overgrown trees is the root cause for the 2003 large scale blackout. The discrepancy between the actual topology of the power grid and the graph model used in state estimation is considered a topology error. Topology error was a reason that the Weighted Least... read more

An affine semigroup \(S\) is a subset of \(\mathbb Z_{\geq 0}^k\) that is closed under vector addition, and a factorization of \(a\in S\) is an expression of \(a\) as a sum of generators of \(S\). The delta set of \(a\) is a set of positive integers determined by the ``missing factorization lengths... read more

Electric dipole moments (EDMs) are signatures of time-reversal, parity, and charge-parity (CP) violation, which makes them a sensitive probe of expected new physics beyond the Standard Model, such as supersymmetry. This is because new, undiscovered sources of CP-violation are needed to explain the... read more
