• Manufacturing resiliency ﻿

(1997)
As a forum for a prototypical form of education/manufacturing, this thesis enables manufacturing workers to learn how to adapt to differing situations in the workplace. By designing a resilient facility that allows for a ...
• Many many many many parking spaces ﻿

(1999)
"Houston is the first major city without streets"$\sp1$ It is a city of parking space, and mostly surface parking at that. Economic incentives and automobility dictate the ground rules by which the contemporary city is ...
• MAP Detection with Soft Information in an Estimate and Forward Relay Network ﻿

(2011)
One proven solution for improving the reliability of a wireless channel is to use relays. We analyze the three-node relay network, focusing on the estimate-and-forward (EF) relay protocol, where the relay node estimates ...
• MAPK pathways of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae: Cell integrity and filamentation/invasion pathway interaction with the hog pathway ﻿

(1999)
Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) cascades are frequently used signal transduction mechanisms in eukaryotes. Of the five MAPK cascade containing signaling pathways in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae , the ...
• Mapping a Dataflow Programming Model onto Heterogeneous Architectures ﻿

(2012-09-05)
This thesis describes and evaluates how extending Intel's Concurrent Collections (CnC) programming model can address the problem of hybrid programming with high performance and low energy consumption, while retaining the ...
• Mapping HPF onto the Grid ﻿

(2003)
For this thesis, we have developed a tool for mapping HPF applications onto the Grid using the GrADS [ea02] infrastructure. To build the mapper, the tool makes use of SPMD taskgraph representation of the application. Using ...
• Mapping magnetic flux tubes and field aligned currents using two representative magnetospheric models ﻿

(1993)
Among available quantitative magnetospheric models, the Tsyganenko models represent empirical modeling, while the Toffoletto and Hill model is theoretical analysis. By mapping flux tubes between the ionosphere and the ...
• Mapping the structural landscape of protein families with geometric feature vectors ﻿

(2010)
This thesis describes two key results that can be used separately or in combination for protein function analysis. The Family-wise Analysis of SubStructural Templates (FASST) method uses all-against-all substructure ...
• Mapping tumor metabolism: from personalized multiobjective metabolic flux analysis to intercellular metabolite transport via exosomes ﻿

(2016-12-02)
Departure from healthy and tightly-regulated metabolism is an emerging hallmark of cancer that facilitates tumorigenic characteristics of uncontrolled proliferation, metastasis, and resistance to chemotherapy. Our aim is ...
• Marco Anzoletti: A preliminary catalog of his instrumental works ﻿

(2005)
This study presents a catalog of the instrumental works of the Italian violinist and composer Marco Anzoletti (1866--1929). In three parts, it first introduces the available biographical information on the composer and the ...
• Marine Gas Hydrate: response to change of seafloor temperature, ocean sulfate concentration, and compositional effect ﻿

(2013-10-30)
The global inventory of carbon in gas hydrate at present day is comparable to that in oil & coal reserve, therefore, gas hydrate could have played an important role in earth carbon cycle, e.g., during the Paleocene Eocene ...
• Marine geology and geophysics of the western South Orkney Plateau, Antarctica: Implications for Quaternary glacial history, tectonics, and paleoceanography ﻿

(1988)
Piston cores and single-channel seismic profiles were collected from the western South Orkney Plateau to investigate glacial history, survey the seismic stratigraphy, and test the feasibility of paleoceanographic interpretation ...
• Marine geology of the northwestern Weddell Sea and adjacent coastal fjords and bays: implications for glacial history ﻿

(1985)
Sedimentologic, compositional, and cleat shape analyses reveal that piston cores obtained on the northwest Weddell See continental shelf penetrated residual glacial marine sediments adjacent to Seymour Island, compound ...
• Mario Lavista and his music with an analysis of "Ficciones" ﻿

(1988)
The musical output of Mexican composer Mario Lavista can be roughly organized into three compositional periods corresponding to different techniques and media which he explored in search of his own original voice. These ...
• Mark's account of Peter's denial of Jesus: A representative history of interpretation of Mark 14:54, 66-72 ﻿

(1989)
Historically, Mark's account of Peter's denial of Jesus has been variously interpreted; that variety continues today. The earliest commentary on the passage, Victor of Antioch, interpreted the passage "literally," drawing ...
• Mark's sowing: The effacement and encrypting of Jesus ﻿

(1988)
In traditional hermeneutics and textual criticism, narratives are read in accordance with the trope synecdoche: parts of the narrative are related to the whole and the whole to parts. However, in my analysis, narratives ...
• Market outperformance by nonparametric, simugram-based portfolio selection ﻿

(2004)
A new portfolio selection system is presented which weights components in a target major market index such that the resulting portfolio consistently outperforms the underlying market index by most any multi-period return ...
• Market power and efficiency ﻿

(2010)
In the first chapter, we examine the relation between efficiency and competition in a dynamic framework. For this purpose, we measure efficiencies and conduct of the U.S. airlines in two city-pairs. We model the conduct ...
• Market-Based Assets, Value Appropriation Activities, and Cash Flow Outcomes ﻿

(2015-04-21)
Understanding marketing’s contributions to the financial performance of firms is an important question for the field. A critical performance metric is cash flow vulnerability, or the potential for downside cash flow outcomes ...
• Marks of the beast: "Left Behind" and the internalization of evil in American evangelical prophecy fiction ﻿

(2004)
Despite the remarkable economic prosperity of the 1990's, Americans purchased enormous numbers of evangelical prophecy novels that specialized in depictions of impending destruction. This phenomenon might appear counterintuitive, ...
