• #### Examining the Use of Homology Models in Predicting Kinase Binding Affinity ﻿

(2013-12-05)
Drug design is a difficult and multi-faceted problem that has led to extensive interdiscplinary work in the field of computational biology. In recent years, several computational methods have emerged. The overall goal of ...
• #### Excavated Sanctuaries (Subtracting Ground By Program) ﻿

(2015-04-09)
This thesis focuses on subtraction not addition, subtracting voids and spatial volumes according to users’ need of functions, circulation and natural light. These voids will be excavated in the natural ground in order to ...

• #### Exchange in the barranco: Organizing the internal economy ﻿

(2010)
This thesis problematizes the infrastructural and social boundaries of informal settlements established in anomalous depressed tissues within the gridded city. It does so by proposing a new urban strategy that intends to ...
• #### Exchange-rate-based stabilization syndrome: Credible disinflation, capital inflows, and the domestic banking system ﻿

(1998)
Interactions between the banking sector and an open capital account are investigated as rationalizations for the empirical regularities that characterize disinflation programs anchored by fixing the exchange rate. Financial ...
• #### Excimer laser induced electrical conductivity and nanostructures in polymers ﻿

(1993)
The generation of substantial electrical conductivity in high temperature polymers and thin film C$\sb{60}$ by means of KrF (248 nm) excimer laser irradiation has been investigated. Formation of both laser ablated surface ...
• #### Excimer laser induced electrical conductivity in polyimide: Applications to engineering, physics, and applied science ﻿

(1996)
Various aspects of the interaction of excimer laser pulses and polyimide were investigated, focusing on low fluences where laser induced electrical conductivity is observed. Multiple shot excimer ablation of polyimide was ...
• #### Excitation curve for the reaction N__(d,n[pi])O__ ﻿

(1957)
A magnetic leas pair spectrometer was used to study the nuclear pairs emitted by 016 when left in the excited state toy the reaction N15(d,n pi)O16. The deuteron beam for this reaction was obtained from the Rice Institute ...
• #### EXCITED STATE DYNAMICS AND SPECTROSCOPY OF AZABENZENES (PYRIDINE, PYRIDAZINE, TRANSIENT SPECIES) ﻿

(1984)
Relaxation processes in pyridine and pyridazine have been investigated using time resolved spectroscopic methods. In order to investigate the photophysics and dynamics of molecular excited states a versatile transient ...
• #### EXCITED STATE KINETICS IN HIGH PRESSURE GAS MIXTURES OF ARGON AND XENON ﻿

(1986)
The time dependence of Ar('+)Xe (--->) ArXe('+) + hv(328nm) heteronuclear ion emission in Ar-Xe mixtures was measured following pulsed excitation by a low intensity, high energy electron beam. The time dependence was ...
• #### EXCITED STATE KINETICS IN HIGH PRESSURE GAS MIXTURES OF KRYPTON AND CHLORINE AND IN KRYPTON AND XENON ﻿

(1984)
Formation and decay of KrCl/Kr(,2)Cl and (KrXe) + excited states have been studied by following the time dependence of the various fluorescence bands. For the KrCl/Kr(,2)Cl system the time dependence of the fluorescence ...

(1959)
• #### Excited-state populations of singly ionized sulphur in gaseous nebulae ﻿

(1968)
A detailed study is made of the populations of singly ionized sulphur (SII) metastable states. These four states, 2D3/2, 2D5/2, 2P1/2, 2P3/2, and the ground state, 4S3/2, arise from a 3p3 electron configuration. Rates ...
• #### Exfoliation, Characterizations, and Applications of 2D Gallium Sheets ﻿

(2016-11-30)
The isolation of graphene from graphite have boomed the two dimensional materials research for many years. The metallic layers have been studied rarely, so I decided to explore the two-dimensional gallium layer. Unlike the ...
• #### Exhaled breath analysis using laser absorption spectroscopy ﻿

(2007)
Trace gas sensing is a rapidly developing field, with many applications in breath diagnostics and therapeutic monitoring. For this thesis, laser spectroscopic techniques were employed to measure exhaled nitric oxide (NO), ...
• #### Exilio y regreso en las novelas de Jose Donoso (Spanish text, Chile) ﻿

(1994)
El objetivo de esta tesis es el estudio de dos novelas de Jose Donoso: El jardin de al lado y La desesperanza en el contexto del proceso politico y personal del exilio y regreso. Este trabajo consta de tres capitulos. En ...
• #### Exogenous stimulation of meniscus cells for the purpose of tissue engineering the knee meniscus ﻿

(2009)
Injuries to avascular regions of menisci do not heal and result in significant discomfort to patients. Current treatments, such as partial meniscectomy, alleviate the symptoms, but lead to premature osteoarthritis due to ...
• #### Expansion and electron temperature evolution in an ultracold neutral plasma ﻿

(2007)
This work describes the evolution of an ultracold neutral plasma as it expands freely in vacuum. It presents a comprehensive study of the electron temperature evolution under different initial conditions. Ultracold neutral ...
• #### Expansive Identity ﻿

(2015-04-23)
The identity of a building type is historically, and remains largely, tied to program. Recognizable by functional use, residential, commercial and educational buildings acquire their identity from a concentration of, ...
• #### Expected utility calculation and alliance reliability ﻿

(1999)
The existing studies on determinants of alliance reliability focus exclusively on alliance types and alliance attributes. One big weakness of this approach is that it depicts the decision making of upholding or disregarding ...
