Clustering Analysis of Partial Galaxies. Aniket has worked with Emil Yuzbashyan on topics including the multistate Landau-Zener problem and the driven-dissipative dynamics of quantum condensates. Jasen also works with Emil Yuzbashyan to develop the theory of quantum regularity - the opposite of quantum chaos.This mixed picture reflects the uneven situation facing Kenyan women.
We can get a sense of this if we consider Kenya’s performance across the four criteria that the Gender Gap study assessed: economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health and survival and political empowerment. The achievement gap in the United States is the observed, persistent disparity in measures of educational performance among subgroups of U.S.
