A TRUST REGION STRATEGY FOR NONLINEAR EQUALITY CONSTRAINED OPTIMIZATION (NONLINEAR PROGRAMMING, SEQUENTIAL QUADRATIC)
(1985)Many current algorithms for nonlinear constrained optimization problems determine a search direction by solving a quadratic programming subproblem. The global convergence properties are addressed by using a line search ... 
A tunable hydrogel system and pulsatile flow bioreactor for the development of tissue engineered vascular grafts
(2009)The prevalence of coronary artery disease combined with a paucity of suitable vessel substitutes act as driving forces for cardiovascular tissue engineering research. In this thesis poly(ethylene glycol) diacrylate (PEGDA) ... 
A tunable laserbased midinfrared source for use in trace gas detection
(1997)A new widely tunable midinfrared (IR) source based on differencefrequency generation (DFG) in Gallium Selenide (GaSe) for use in highresolution spectroscopy and trace gas detection is described. The characteristics of ... 
A twodimensional model of the Venus ionosphere
(1988)The Pioneer Venus observations show a peak in the O$\sb2\sp+$ concentration at $\sim$170 km altitude in the dayside ionosphere of Venus. In this thesis, the 2dimensional MHD equations are solved in a selfconsistent manner, ... 
A twopronged approach towards the development of novel therapeutics for advanced endometrial cancer
(20151124)Endometrial cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women. The standard of care involves hysterectomy with adjuvant radiation and chemotherapy for advanced disease. Despite these efforts, treatment of advanced and ... 
A typebased prototype compiler for telescoping languages
(2009)Scientists want to encode their applications in domain languages with highlevel operators that reflect the way they conceptualize computations in their domains. Telescoping languages calls for automatically generating ... 
A TYPOLOGY OF WOMEN CHARACTERS IN THE GERMAN NATURALIST NOVEL
(1981)The subject of this study is the image of woman in late 19th century German fiction. Upon examining a multitude of works produced within this time frame, it was found that the "naturalist" novel, in particular, provided a ... 
A unified approach to complex seismic imaging problems
(1991)Two current challenges in seismic imaging are to obtain more detailed images of complex structures from reflection data and to constrain the regional structure of the Earth using wideangle data. These are complex problems ... 
A unified approach to mitomycinoids: Application of a novel enelike reaction
(1999)A practical synthesis of the powerful antitumor agents, mitomycin C and FR900482, remains an elusive goal to this date. These substances may be thought to arise from suitably functionalized benzazocinones as retrosynthetic ... 
A union in disarray: Romanian nation building under Astra in latenineteenthcentury rural Transylvania and Hungary
(2002)Scholarly studies of the nation as a socially constructed community, while accurate, do not explain how individuals in a predominantly agricultural society build and mobilize a national community outside of traditional ... 
A universal hidden Markov tree image model
(1999)Waveletdomain hidden Markov models have proven to be useful tools for statistical signal and image processing. The hidden Markov tree (HMT) model captures the key features of the joint density of the wavelet coefficients ... 
A Usability and Real World Perspective on Accessible Voting
(2012)The HAVA (Help America Vote Act) mandated that all polling places provide privacy and independence to voters. DREs (DirectRecording Electronic voting systems) have been assumed to be the solution to providing accessible ... 
A VARIABLEMETRIC VARIANT OF THE KARMARKAR ALGORITHM FOR LINEAR PROGRAMMING
(1987)The most timeconsuming part of the Karmarkar algorithm for linear programming is computation of the step direction, which requires the projection of a vector onto the nullspace of a matrix that changes at each iteration. ... 
A variational approach to the local uniqueness of minimal surfaces immersed in R(3)
(1998)In the past 20 years, many techniques have been developed for proving the existence of complete minimal surfaces immersed in space. Few methods are known for classifying such surfaces. In order to study the structure of ... 
A variational study of the electrical impedance tomography problem
(2002)This research is focused on the numerical solution of the inverse conductivity problem, widely known as electrical impedance tomography (EIT). The EIT problem is concerned with imaging electrical properties, such as ... 
A visionbased fuzzy logic and neural network approach to the control of hyperredundant robot manipulators
(1994)Hyperredundant robot manipulators possess a very large degree of kinematic redundancy and are capable of motion similar to that of snakes and elephant trunks. Because of the computational burden required to calculate the ... 
A waste water treatment plant as a contemporary public space
(2007)The piazza is failing as a typology of public space in Florence, Italy due to sprawl, tourism, and the profuse use of the car. However, the city of Florence keeps building new piazzas to act as a public space inside the ... 
A waveletbased approach to threedimensional confocal microscopy image reconstruction
(2004)An algorithm based on the Haar wavelet basis and implementing an expectation maximizationmaximum penalized likelihood estimator in 3D is shown to provide dramatic improvement over traditional stoppedEM algorithms in ... 
A waveletbased numerical scheme for stochastic mechanics
(2000)Uncertainty is an inherent part of many physical systems. This is often ignored to simplify mathematical models thereby leading to a deterministic treatment of the system. Incorporation of the uncertainty into the model, ... 
A zonally and annually averaged study of potential early Martian atmospheres
(1993)Observations of the surface of Mars suggest a high probability of surface water activity in that planet's past. Consequently, many studies of Mars' early atmosphere have attempted to estimate the carbon dioxide level by ...

Ab initio methods for protein structure prediction
(2010)Recent breakthroughs in DNA and protein sequencing have unlocked many secrets of molecular biology. A complete understanding of gene function, however, requires a protein structure in addition to its sequence. Modern protein ...
