* Kimberling and Moses Publish Research Paper

Professor of Mathematics Clark Kimberling and British engineer Peter Moses have a research article on "Self-inverse Gemini triangles" in the April issue of the International Journal of Geometry. The article investigates special properties of a large family of triangles known as Gemini triangles.

Using methods of linear algebra applied to barycentric coordinates, the conclusions involve several conic curves and cubic curves that are new to the literature. Several recently discovered special points in the plane of a triangle are introduced, having first appeared during 2019 in the UE-based Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers (

* Nicholas Harmon publishes in IEEE journal

Dr. Harmon's article "Modeling of Near Zero-Field Magnetoresistance and Electrically Detected Magnetic Resonance in Irradiated Si/SiO2 MOSFETs" appeared in the recent edition of the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science. This research, in collaboration with the University of Iowa and Pennsylvania State University, introduces a model of a new magnetoresistance phenomena that arises due to electrons in semiconductors recombining through defects. The magnetoresistance originates from the spin-dependence (essentially the Pauli exclusion principle) of recombination (and is a variation of the Shockley Read Hall mechanism). This article has applications for electronic devices aboard spacecraft as the defects examined are produced by radiation similar to which is seen in space.
