Geodesics and Bounded Harmonic Functions on Infinite Graphs
(1991)It is shown there that an infinite connected planar graph with a uniform upper bound on vertex degree and rapidly decreasing Green's function (relative to the simple random walk) has infinitely many pairwise finitelyintersecting ... 
Cogrowth of Regular Graphs
(Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 1992)Let G be a dregular graph and T the covering tree of G. We define a cogrowth constant of G in T and express it in terms of the first eigenvalue of the Laplacian on G. As a corollary, we show that the cogrowth constant is ... 
Amenability and superharmonic functions
(Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 1993)Let G be a countable group and u a symmetric and aperiodic probability measure on G . We show that G is amenable if and only if every positive superharmonic function is nearly constant on certain arbitrarily large subsets ... 
On the spectrum and Martin boundary of homogeneous spaces
(Statistics and Probability Letters, 1995)Given a conservative, spatially homogeneous Markov process X on an homogeneous spaces χ, we show that if the bottom of the spectrum of the generator of X is zero then the Martin boundary of contains a unique point fixed ... 
On the Commute Time of Random Walks on Graphs
(Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics, 1995)Given a simple random walk on an undirected connected graph, the commute time of the vertices x and y is defined as C(x,y) = ExTy+EyTx. We give a new proof, based on the optional sampling theorem for martingales, of the ... 
Colonizing the Coffee Table: The Erasure of Difference in the Representation of Women in National Geographic Magazine
(American Periodicals, 1997) 
On Iterates of Moebius transformations on fields
(Mathematics of Computation, 1997)Let p be a quadratic polynomial over a splitting field K, and S be the set of zeros of p. We define an associative and commutative binary relation on G ≡ K ∪ {∞ } S so that every Moebius transformation with fixed point ... 
A note on the Zeta Function of a Graph
(Journal of Combinatorial Theory Series B, 1998)The number of splanning trees in a finite graph is first expressed as the derivative (at 1) of a determinant and then in terms of a zeta function. This generalizes a result of Hashimoto to nonregular graphs. 
WomanAsSymbol: Intersections of Indian Nationalism, Gender, and Identity
(Women's Studies International Forum, 1999)The purpose of this article is to explore the connection between Indian nationalism and gender identity. I provide a critique of Radhakrishnan and Chatterjee's notion of the outer/inner dichotomy of Indian nationalism by ... 
Associativity of the Secant Method
(American Mathematical Monthly, 2002)Iterating a function like 1+1/x gives a sequence which converges to the Golden Mean but does so at a much slower rate than those sequences derived from Newton's method or the secant method. There is, however, a surprising ... 
Assessing Outcomes with Nursing Research Assignments and Citation Analysis of Student Bibliographies
(Reference Librarian, 2003)What are the library and information research requirements in a typical undergraduate nursing program? Do distancelearning library services provide undergraduate nursing students with the research materials they require ... 
Those Immersed Resurface: A Follow Up with Track 2 Participants of the First Information Literacy Immersion
(College and Research Libraries News, 200301)So what happens to all those great ideas and all that motivation that we get when we attend conferences and professional development opportunities? In the case of the first Track 2 participants of ACRL's Institute for ... 
Effects of an Ice Storm on Fuel Loadings and Potential Fire Behavior in a Pine Barren of Northeastern New York
(Scientia Discipulorum: SUNY Plattsburgh, 2004)Ecological effects of natural disturbances depend on the disturbance type, frequency, intensity and spatial scale. Of the major natural disturbances in the Northeast, ice storms are more frequent than fires or wind storms. ... 
Plant Community Succession Following Disturbances in a Pine Barren and Adjacent Hardwood Forest
(Scientia Discipulorum: SUNY Plattsburgh, 2004)The sandstone pavement barren and adjacent cobblestone formations in Clinton County, New York were created by the sudden release of water from glacial Lake Iroquois approximately 12000 ybp. Today, the barren is a rare ... 
A Guide to the Zooplankton of Lake Champlain
(Scientia Discipulorum: SUNY Plattsburgh, 2004)This key was developed by undergraduate research students working on a project with NYDEC and the Lake Champlain Monitoring program to develop longterm data sets for Lake Champlain plankton. Funding for development of ... 
Decomposition Rates of Typha Spp. in Northern Freshwater Wetlands over a StreamMarshPeatland Gradient
(Scientia Discipulorum: SUNY Plattsburgh, 2004)Decomposition rates in wetlands vary with the composition of the biotic community and the physical and chemical environment. Variations in the process of decomposition in turn affect the overall rate of nutrient cycling ... 
Reinforcing Information and Technology Literature: The Plattsburg Tip Sheet
(College & Research Libraries News, 200406)This article describes a Plattsburgh State University Library and Information Services (LIS) faculty workshop on information and technology literacy. The workshop was developed in response to a call for the redraft ing ... 
An Analysis of Executive Functions in Children Referred for Auditory Processing Evaluation
(2006)It is well known that attention deficits frequently cooccur with auditory processing disorder yet little is known about the (cognitive) executive functions (EFs) that regulate attention and selfcontrol in children with ... 
On integral Apollonian circle packings
(Journal of Number Theory, 2006)The curvatures of four mutually tangent circles with disjoint interior form what is called a Descartes quadruple. The four smallest curvatures of circles in an Apollonian circle packing form what is called a root Descartes ...
