• #### Inference of parsimonious species phylogenies from multi-locus data ﻿

(2010)
The main focus of this dissertation is the inference of species phylogenies, i.e. evolutionary histories of species. Species phylogenies allow us to gain insights into the mechanisms of evolution and to hypothesize past ...
• #### Infill panel system for seismic strengthening of flat-plate buildings ﻿

(2001)
Many existing flat-plate buildings are seismically deficient and pose a threat to life safety if subjected to ground motions of even low to moderate intensity. Failure in such structures is typically the result of punching ...
• #### Infinite projections for atopic landscapes ﻿

(1995)
Atopia: without landscape, place. Methods are explored for both recording and activating atopia: by introducing the subject, rather than the object; and through projections, both literal and figurative, in order to create ...
• #### Infinite Rain (Original composition, Li Yu, Zhang Zhi-he, Liu Yong, China) ﻿

(2000)
Infinite Rain is based on three different T'ang and Sung lyric poems. Lyric poetry refers to poems composed to certain tunes. These three lyric poems come from different Chinese dynasties, but they all depict rain in varying ...
• #### INFLUENCE OF ADSORPTION AND OXYGEN LIMITED BIODEGRADATION ON THE TRANSPORT AND FATE OF A CREOSOTE PLUME: FIELD METHODS AND SIMULATION TECHNIQUES (HYDROCARBON, GROUNDWATER, MODELING, TRACER TEST) ﻿

(1986)
Field monitoring at the United Creosoting Company (UCC) site in Conroe, TX has shown that the shallow aquifer has become contaminated by leakage from two unlined ponds. A plume of hydrocarbon contaminated ground water is ...
• #### Influence of citrate ligands on ferric hydroxide nucleation at low molar ratios: Application for arsenic removal ﻿

(2010)
The U.S. EPA recommends adding of 5-25mg/L ferric salt to remove arsenate (V) at pH 5 to 8 in water treatment plants. Citrate has been proven to inhibit ferric hydroxide floc formation and corresponding arsenic adsorption. ...

(1973)
• #### Influence of dielectric function properties on the optical response of plasmon resonant metallic nanoparticles ﻿

(2005)
The optical properties of plasmon resonant metallic nanoparticles are of great interest because of their ability both to control optical fields on the nanometer scale and to function as sensitive indicators of their local ...
• #### Influence of Effective Modulus on Period-Doubling Bifurcation in Atomic Force Microscopy: Investigation and Implementation for Sample Characterization ﻿

(2011)
Atomic force microscope (AFM) is an important tool for measuring the topographical and other properties of a sample with nanometer resolution. The cantilever probe of the AFM is influenced by nonlinear interaction forces ...

(1972)

(1969)
• #### Influence of male sex hormone level in the host on the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta ﻿

(1954)
In addition to dramatic effects on the primary and secondary sexual characteristics, there are several responses to castration and testosterone administration in the male mammal which indicate this hormone to be at least ...
• #### Influence of organic matter on atrazine rejection by nanofiltration ﻿

(1995)
The influence of Natural Organic Matter (NOM) on the removal of atrazine by nanofiltration was studied using pressurized dead-end filtration cells. The effect of several parameters, physical and chemical, was investigated ...
• #### Influence of Peroxisomal Import and Receptor Recycling of Peroxisomal Function ﻿

(2011)
Peroxisomes compartmentalize a variety of important metabolic reactions including fatty acid β-oxidation and the related process of IBA β-oxidation. Peroxisomal proteins are encoded by nuclear genes and must be ...
• #### Influence of pyrolysis conditions on macropore structure of char particles ﻿

(1993)
A systematic analysis of the structure of char particles produced from an Illinois #6 coal was carried out. Coal particles were pyrolyzed in a hot-stage reactor under inert (N$\sb2$) and reactive (5% O$\sb2$ / 95% N$\sb2$) ...

(1978)
• #### Influence of uncertainties in vertical mixing algorithms on an air quality model ﻿

(2010)
Vertical diffusion of trace pollutants is a very important physical process that influences pollutant concentrations. However, there are large uncertainties in the numerical modeling of this process, which could affect ...
• #### Influence of varying analyte concentration, environment, and composition on nanoshell-based SERS ﻿

(2009)
This thesis describes a series of experiments designed to examine the use of Au nanoshells as highly controllable surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) nanosensor substrates. Individual Au nanoshells provide simple, ...
• #### Influences and changes in the architectural space of the early twentieth century and their relation to a Kuhnian paradigm shift in architecture (Switzerland, The Netherlands, Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Theo van Doesburg) ﻿

(1992)
Changes in architectural space which occurred at the beginning of the century are investigated to determine whether or not they represent a single, unified event. As examples of these changes, the work of three architects ...
• #### Influences of contextual information and social connectedness on political behavior ﻿

(2002)
Should people listen to their neighbors' political advice? Many models of social influence cast the people in an individual's social environment as monitoring their opinions and enforcing conformity. However, it is not ...
