• #### A computational investigation of solar energetic particle trajectories in model magnetospheres ﻿

(1999)
This work studies the dynamic behavior of solar energetic particles (SEPs, defined as protons and electrons with energies of 1 MeV to 1 GeV) by simulating their motion in model electromagnetic fields. Because of the hazards ...
• #### A computational method for constructing Sylvester-style sparse resultants ﻿

(2005)
We present a computational approach for constructing Sylvester style resultants for sparse systems of bivariate polynomial equations. Necessary and sufficient conditions are derived which guarantee that a multiplying set ...
• #### A Computational Model of Jetliner Taxiing ﻿

(2012)
The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is transforming the way planes move on the ground as well as in the sky. Some of the proposed changes, such as automated scheduling algorithms to generate taxi ...
• #### A computational model of routine procedural memory ﻿

(2009)
Cooper and Shallice (2000) implemented a computational version of the Norman and Shallice's (1986) Contention Scheduling Model (CSM). The CSM is a hierarchically organized network of action schemas and goals. Botvinick and ...
• #### A Computational Model of Routine Procedural Memory ﻿

(2009)
Cooper and Shallice (2000) implemented a computational version of the Norman and Shallice’s (1986) Contention Scheduling Model (CSM). The CSM is a hierarchically organized network of action schemas and goals. Botvinick and ...
• #### A computational study of vehicle routing applications ﻿

(1999)
This thesis examines three specific routing applications. In the first model, the scheduling of home health care providers from their homes, to a set of patients, and then back to their respective homes, is performed both ...

(1964)
• #### A computer-aided Markovian model of the design process ﻿

(1972)
This thesis is based on the hypothesis that design problems are conflicting situations of social systems which, as open systems, exist at a steady-state. The process by which these systems reach steady-states is described ...
• #### A computer-based tutor for engineering design ﻿

(2000)
Modern computer technology facilitates development of rich learning environments that can enhance a student's ability to learn; however, none of the existing educational software systems can support the drill-and-practice ...
• #### A concept of home for the modern urban stranger ﻿

(1994)
The issues of domesticity in the contemporary urban realm will be examined in the following manner. I will first investigate the implications of what it means for a 'table' and 'chair' to exist in a space both physically ...
• #### A connectionist approach to autonomous robotic navigation ﻿

(1991)
Robotic navigation has been an area of intense research since the onset of mobile robot development. The usefulness of mobile robots ultimately reside in their ability to move and interact with the environment. Current ...
• #### A consistent and transparent solution for caching dynamic Web content ﻿

(2005)
Caching is an effective means for reducing load on web servers, especially for those that dynamically generate documents in dynamic web applications. While adding caching to a web application can greatly reduce response ...

(1971)
• #### A constitutive equation for creep in glassy polymers and composites ﻿

(1988)
The creep of polymethyl methacrylate was investigated in four-point flexural loading mode. Measurements were taken at temperatures from 8$\sp\circ$C to 55$\sp\circ$C, time periods up to 450 hours and stresses ranging from ...
• #### A Constraint and Sampling-Based Approach to Integrated Task and Motion Planning ﻿

(2014-09-30)
This thesis tackles the Integrated Task and Motion Planning (ITMP) Problem. The ITMP problem extends classical task planning with actions that require a motion plan. The agent seeks a sequence of actions and the necessary ...
• #### A Constraint-Based Approach to Reactive Task and Motion Planning ﻿

(2016-01-26)
This thesis presents a novel and scalable approach for Reactive Task and Motion Planning. We consider changing environments with uncontrollable agents, where the robot needs a policy to respond correctly in the infinite ...
• #### A contactless method of measuring the resistivity of semiconductor materials ﻿

(1972)
A study has been made of a contactless technique of measuring resistivity, which uses a time-varying magnetic field to induce eddy currents in a sample and measures the magnetic field produced by the eddy currents. The ...
• #### A continuous kinetic assay for RecA-mediated DNA strand exchange using DNA-based flourescent signal ﻿

(2000)
A continuous kinetic assay for RecA-mediated DNA strand exchange using a DNA-based fluorescent signal has been successfully developed and employed. 2-Aminopurine deoxyribonucleoside phosphoradmite was synthesized and ...
• #### A continuous system of community facilities for the redevelopment of blighted areas in the city ﻿

(1967)
By looking at blighted areas it becomes clear that the development of blight is part of the growth-change-decay cycle of the city. This is sometimes effected by the form of the city structure. The location and activities ...
