• #### 5/2 state in high election density gallium arsenide/aluminum gallium arsenide quantum well ﻿

(2010)
This Master of Science Thesis is concerned with electronic transport in the higher Landau levels (LL) in a two-dimensional electron system, where novel many-body electronic phases have been observed. Particular attention ...
• #### 5alpha-cholest-8(14)-en-3beta-ol-15-one. Studies on its metabolism in cultured cells and male baboons. (Volumes I and II) ﻿

(1989)
5$\alpha$-Cholest-8(14)-en-3$\beta$-ol-15-one is a potent inhibitor of cholesterol biosynthesis which has been found to have significant hypocholesterolemic action upon oral administration to rodents and nonhuman primates. ...
• #### 66 ° N ﻿

(2007)
'66&deg;N' is the design for a large-scale ecotourism hotel that takes advantage of dynamic and shifting environmental conditions of Greenland to visually and physically register the changes in the fragile arctic environment. ...

(1971)
• #### A 3.0 meter liquid mirror telescope ﻿

(2000)
We constructed a 3.0 meter diameter f/1.5 Liquid Mirror Telescope (LMT) between 1990 and 1994 at the NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas. We have subsequently operated it since 1995 at the NASA Orbital Debris Observatory ...
• #### 'A Almshouse Ting Dat': Developments in Poor Relief and Child Welfare in Jamaica during the Interwar Years ﻿

(2013-07-24)
This dissertation examines the development of poor relief and child welfare policy in Jamaica during the interwar years. It establishes the paradigms for accessing relief and how this influenced broader discussions of ...
• #### A Bayesian hierarchical model for detecting associations between haplotypes and disease using unphased SNPs ﻿

(2008)
This thesis addresses using haplotypes to detect disease predisposing chromosomal regions based on a Bayesian hierarchical model for case-control data. By utilizing the Stochastic Search Variable Selection (SSVS) procedure ...
• #### A behavioral approach to positive interpolation ﻿

(2005)
We study interpolation by positive functions from a behavioural point of view. In particular, by considering the notion of mirror image data, the interpolation problem with passivity constraint is transformed into an ...
• #### A Branch-and-Cut Method for Solving the Bilevel Clique Interdiction Problem ﻿

(2015-04-20)
I introduce an algorithm to solve the current formulation of the bilevel clique interdiction problem. Interdiction, a military term, describes the removal of enemy resources. The single level clique interdiction problem ...
• #### A breath by breath oxygen analyzer ﻿

(1964)
This paper explains work done on the development of an instrument designed to determine the oxygen content of a sample of respiratory gas. The device relies on the fact that oxygen is paramagnetic and the other exhaled ...
• #### A Browser-based Program Execution Visualizer for Learning Interactive Programming in Python ﻿

(2015-04-23)
Good educational programming tools help students practice programming skills and build better understanding of basic concepts and logic. As Rice University started offering free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) on the ...
• #### A calculation of pressure recovery behind a normal shock in hypersonic flow ﻿

(1960)
An analytical model is devised for investigating the flow immediately behind the normal shock which stands in the throat of the conical shock diffuser of a hypersonic wind tunnel. A method is developed for calculating the ...

(1949)
• #### A calculation of the mean age of interstellar dust particles ﻿

(1989)
This thesis aims to compute the mean age of interstellar dust particles using a sputtering and recycling model originally formulated by Liffman and Clayton. The ages of the particles are evaluated after a period of 6 ...
• #### A capacitor buffer memory ﻿

(1962)
Digital information may be stored as a charge on a capacitor if suitable switches are used on the input and output lines. Characteristics of neon glow lamps (ionized from an external radio frequency source) pertinent to ...
• #### A case study of collaborative writing with the computer ﻿

(1990)
This study addresses the need for research which examines collaborative writing using computers. Its purpose was to identify, through observation and description, distinctive features of collaborative composing with a ...
• #### A case study of the June 4--5, 1991 magnetic storm using the Rice Convection Model ﻿

(2000)
This dissertation presents one of the most comprehensive computer simulations to date of a geomagnetic storm. During the geomagnetic storm of June 4--5, 1991, five spacecraft took measurements of conditions within the inner ...
• #### A cash-in-advance model of production ﻿

(1996)
The concept of period length in the empirical application of cash-in-advance (CIA) models is introduced. CIA models posit that individuals and firms hold cash to purchase goods over a period. However, there has been no ...

(1986)
• #### A CAUSAL THEORY OF 'ABOUT' ﻿

(1987)
Whenever we make a claim about a fictional entity, we seem to embroil ourselves in familiar problems of reference. This appearance is misleading, because what a sentence is about bears a greater resemblance to a Fregean ...
