• #### Oasis in the Wasteland: A factory for production of plastic amusement and modern convenience ﻿

(1992)
The idea of the Wasteland is a potent metaphor within architecture for urban and social decay. Le Corbusier's project for a City of Tomorrow, an idealized place of industrial production, exemplifies attempts by architects ...
• #### OASIS: A hydrogeologic database and a graphical, hypertext decision support system for groundwater contaminant modeling ﻿

(1989)
A Decision Support System is a class of computer software with information, databases, and computer models integrated together to help people solve broad, semi- structured problems. Ground water contaminant transport ...
• #### oASIS: Adaptive Column Sampling for Kernel Matrix Approximation ﻿

(2015-04-21)
Kernel or similarity matrices are essential for many state-of-the-art approaches to classification, clustering, and dimensionality reduction. For large datasets, the cost of forming and factoring such kernel matrices becomes ...
• #### Obeying God rather than men: Protestant individualism and the empowerment of Victorian women ﻿

(2008)
This dissertation looks at Protestant individualism and the degree to which it was potentially empowering to Victorian women. By Protestant individualism, I mean a way of thinking about and speaking about the self that ...
• #### Object priming in the fusiform cortex: Exploring effects of task and visual similarity ﻿

(2010)
Neural priming for same and different exemplars and viewpoints of objects was examined in two experiments using functional magnetic resonance imaging. In line with previous studies, viewpoint- and exemplar-specific priming ...
• #### Object-oriented implementation of p-adaptive finite element method ﻿

(1999)
A finite element analysis methodology employing p-adaptivity is proposed. Object-oriented design and methodologies are used to implement the finite element package. The p-refinement phase is facilitated through the addition ...
• #### Object-oriented implementation of the Galerkin finite element method and its application to the numerical study of natural convective flows in enclosures ﻿

(1997)
Using object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and philosophies, a collection of C++ tools for the rapid development of finite element applications has been created. The Object-Oriented Finite Element Analysis (OOFEA) ...
• #### Objectifying the objective list ﻿

(2002)
The aim of the present paper is to clarify the essential features of the objective list and address consequences of this characterization. The objective list theory is frequently criticized for its rigidity and its inability ...
• #### Objective Approaches to Single-Molecule Time Series Analysis ﻿

(2013-07-24)
Single-molecule spectroscopy has provided a means to uncover pathways and heterogeneities that were previously hidden beneath the ensemble average. Such heterogeneity, however, is often obscured by the artifacts of ...
• #### Objective Assessment of Endovascular Navigation Proficiency using Offline and Online Velocity-domain Performance Measures ﻿

(2020-04-22)
Minimally invasive endovascular surgery is increasingly becoming the technique of choice for a variety of procedures ranging from aneurysm repair to heart valve replacement. To guarantee the benefits of fewer complications ...
• #### Objective Sociability Measures from Multi-modal Smartphone data and Unconstrained Day-long Audio Streams ﻿

(2019-04-16)
Sociability is defined as a tendency to affiliate with others and to prefer being with others instead of staying alone. Sociability is well-known to influence many aspects of an individual, e.g., their quality of life, ...
• #### Oblique collision and accretion of the Netherlands Leeward Antilles island arc: A structural analysis of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary zone ﻿

(2007)
The Netherlands Leeward Antilles volcanic island arc is an ideal natural laboratory to study the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary. The Leeward Antilles islands (Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire) are ...
• #### Oblique Seafloor Spreading, the Malpelo Plate Hypothesis, and Cocos-Nazca-Pacific Plate Motion Circuit ﻿

(2018-11-16)
We show that oblique seafloor spreading occurs in several regions where obliquity, α, was not recognized before. These include the slow spreading centers of the Red Sea (α≈20°), intermediate spreading centers of the ...
• #### Oblique-incidence fiber-optic reflectometry for measuring absorption and scattering in turbid media ﻿

(1997)
Oblique-incidence, fiber-optic reflectometry is a simple and accurate method for measuring the absorption and reduced scattering coefficients, $\mu\sb{a}$ and $\mu\sb{s}\sp\prime ,$ of semi-infinite turbid media. Obliquely ...
• #### Oblivious yet High Performance Task Scheduling for Large Shared Clusters ﻿

(2018-06-11)
Data analytics in large scale clusters are gradually shifting from monolithic and centralized scheduling frameworks to distributed or hybrid scheduling frameworks. In these distributed or hybrid frameworks, task queues on ...
• #### Obscurity and the mythic quest for shape: a discussion and explication of Dylan Thomas' Altarwise by Owl-light ﻿

(1968)
Dylan Thomas' obscure sonnet sequence, Altarwise by Owl-light, has "inspired more comment and caused more disagreement than anything else by Thomas." Reading the sequence is like experiencing a confused nightmare or dream ...
• #### Observation of antiferromagnetic correlations in the Fermi-Hubbard model ﻿

(2014-11-26)
The Hubbard model contains only the essential ingredients to describe the behavior of strongly interacting electrons moving in a periodic lattice. It describes particles that can tunnel between sites in the lattice and ...
• #### Observation of bow shock protons at the lunar orbit ﻿

(1974)
Protons with energies ranging from about 5 eV to 35 eV are observed by the Suprathermal Ion Detector Experiment on both the dusk and dawn sides of the. magnetosphere. On each lunation these particles appear as a rather ...
• #### Observation of dislocations in molybdenum ﻿

(1966)
Single crystals of molybdenum were strained in direct shear on (110) planes along the [111] direction. Crystals were sheared to approximately 5, 10, 20, and 40 percent shear strain at 195°K, 300°K, and 373°K, and to 2 and ...
