Abstract
Let K be a finite extension of $ℚ$ and let S = {ν} denote the collection of K normalized absolute values on K. Let ${V}_{K}^{+}$ denote the additive group of adeles over K and let $c\text{}:\text{}{V}_{}^{}$
Let K be a finite extension of $ℚ$ and let S = {ν} denote the collection of K normalized absolute values on K. Let ${V}_{K}^{+}$ denote the additive group of adeles over K and let $c\text{}:\text{}{V}_{K}^{+}\to {ℝ}_{\ge 0}$ denote the content map defined as $\text{c}\left(\left\{{\text{a}}_{\text{v}}\right\}\right)\text{=}{\prod }_{v\in s}v\left({\text{a}}_{\text{v}}\right)$ for $\left\{{a}_{v}\right\}\in {V}_{K}^{+}$. A classical result of J. W. S. Cassels states that there is a constant c > 0 depending only on the field K with the following property: if $\left\{{a}_{v}\right\}\in {V}_{K}^{+}$ with $c\left(\left\{{a}_{v}\right\}\right)\text{}>\text{}c$ , then there exists a non-zero element b ∈ K for which $v\left(b\right)\le v\left({a}_{v}\right),\text{}\forall v\in \text{}S$. Let cK be the greatest lower bound of the set of all c that satisfy this property. In the case that K is a real quadratic extension there is a known upper bound for cK due to S. Lang. The purpose of this paper is to construct a new upper bound for cK in the case that K has class number one. We compare our new bound with Lang’s bound for various real quadratic extensions and find that our new bound is better than Lang’s in many instances. Full article

Abstract
In this paper, we define the generating functions for the generalized q-Stirling numbers of the second kind. By applying Mellin transform to these functions, we construct interpolation functions of these numbers at negative integers. We also derive some identities and relations related to
In this paper, we define the generating functions for the generalized q-Stirling numbers of the second kind. By applying Mellin transform to these functions, we construct interpolation functions of these numbers at negative integers. We also derive some identities and relations related to q-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials and q-Stirling numbers of the second kind. Full article

Abstract
Recently, the authors have established a large class of modular relations involving the Rogers-Ramanujan type functions J(q) and K(q) of order ten. In this paper, we establish further modular relations connecting these two functions with Rogers-Ramanujan functions, Göllnitz-Gordon functions and cubic functions, which
Recently, the authors have established a large class of modular relations involving the Rogers-Ramanujan type functions J(q) and K(q) of order ten. In this paper, we establish further modular relations connecting these two functions with Rogers-Ramanujan functions, Göllnitz-Gordon functions and cubic functions, which are analogues to the Ramanujan’s forty identities for Rogers-Ramanujan functions. Furthermore, we give partition theoretic interpretations of some of our modular relations. Full article
Open AccessArticle Signal Estimation Using Wavelet Analysis of Solution Monitoring Data for Nuclear Safeguards

Abstract
Wavelets are explored as a data smoothing (or de-noising) option for solution monitoring data in nuclear safeguards. In wavelet-smoothed data, the Gibbs phenomenon can obscure important data features that may be of interest. This paper compares wavelet smoothing to piecewise linear smoothing and
