    • Multi-type branching process models of cell proliferation 

      Stivers, David Neil (1995)
      (Axelrod et al., 1993) carried out experiments in which colonies of mouse fibroblast cells were dispersed and seeded to form secondary colonies. They found that there existed highly significant correlations between sizes ...
    • Multi-wavelength analysis of solar transient phenomena 

      Coyner, Aaron J. (2009)
      Solar transient phenomena such as solar flares and coronal mass ejection are some of the most energetic and explosive phenomena affecting the solar environment. Emission signatures within solar flares provide direct insight ...
    • Multi-wire proportional counter system for low energy nuclear physics 

      Gabitzsch, Norman Dan (1972)
      A multi-wire proportional counter system capable of detecting low mass particles at tandem Van de Graaff energies has been developed. Each multi-wire proportional counter, operating at a pressure of 50-150 Torr, subtends ...
    • Multibody mechanics and the residual flexibility method 

      Miller, Scott Michael (1996)
      This thesis provides first an introduction to an area of continuum mechanics the author terms multibody mechanics. Therein, a continuum is separated into a finite number of bodies. By merging ideas from classical and ...
    • Multicanonical molecular dynamics by variable-temperature thermostats and variable-pressure barostats 

      Zhang, Cheng; Deem, Michael W. (2013)
      Sampling from flat energy or density distributions has proven useful in equilibrating complex systems with large energy barriers. Several thermostats and barostats are presented to sample these flat distributions by molecular ...
    • Multicomponent seismic data analysis in the tau-p domain 

      Jiang, Zerong (1997)
      I develop a number of new methods for performing slant stacking and its variants suitable to the processing of ocean bottom seismograph (OBS) data. I develop two versions of the discrete Radon transform (DRT) pair, a ...
    • Multidirectional search: A direct search algorithm for parallel machines 

      Torczon, Virginia Joanne (1989)
      In recent years there has been a great deal of interest in the development of optimization algorithms which exploit the computational power of parallel computer architectures. We have developed a new direct search algorithm, ...
    • Multidomain peptides for promoting angiogenesis 

      Hartgerink, Jeffrey Dale; Kumar, Vivek Ashok (2016-12-27)
      The present disclosure provides a composition comprising a multi-domain peptide capable of self-assembly into a nanofibrous hydrogel structure capable of stimulating a robust angiogenic response. In one embodiment, the ...
    • Multidomain Peptides: Sequence-Nanostructure Relationships and Biological Applications 

      Bakota, Erica Laraine (2011)
      Peptides are materials that, as a result of their polymeric nature, possess enormous versatility and customizability. Multidomain peptides are a class of peptides that selfassemble to form stable, cytocompatible hydro gels. ...
    • Multiformity: Toward a Multiparamater Effectiveness 

      Taylor, Matthew A. (2011)
      This thesis produces new strategies for forming aggregations of units based on environmental factors. This is achieved by redefining the relationship between the public and private realms based on environmental performance ...
    • Multifractal Cross-Traffic Estimation 

      Ribeiro, Vinay Joseph; Coates, Mark J.; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Sarvotham, Shriram; Hendricks, Brent; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2000-09-01)
      In this paper we develop a novel model-based technique, the Delphi algorithm, for inferring the instantaneous volume of competing cross-traffic across an end-to-end path. By using only end-to-end measurements, Delphi avoids ...
    • Multifractal Formalism for Infinite Multinomial Measures 

      Riedi, Rudolf H.; Mandelbrot, Benoit (1995-01-20)
      There are strong reasons to believe that the multifractal spectrum of DLA shows anomalies which have been termed left sided. In order to show that this is compatible with strictly multiplicative structures Mandelbrot et ...
    • Multifractal products of stochastic processes: construction and some basic properties 

      Mannersalo , Petteri; Riedi, Rudolf H.; Norros , Ilkka (2002-01-15)
      In various fields, such as teletraffic and economics, measured times series have been reported to adhere to multifractal scaling. Classical cascading measures possess multifractal scaling, but their increments form a ...
    • Multifractal Properties of TCP Traffic: a Numerical Study 

      Riedi, Rudolf H.; Vehel, Jacques (1997-10-20)
      We analyze two traces of TCP--traffic recorded at the gateway of a LAN corre­ sponding to two hours at Berkeley and to eight hours at CNET labs respectively. We are mainly interested in a multifractal approach, which we ...
