• Optimum proportions for hybrid girders ﻿

(1976)
An analytical investigation is made to find optimum proportions for hybrid girders. These optimum proportions must satisfy the bending and shearing requirements and the cost will be the minimum, compared to other possible ...

(1971)
• Optoelectronic and Ultraviolet Plasmonics ﻿

(2014-04-07)
Metallodielectric nanostructures are enabling a revolution in optics. For centuries optical techniques were constrained by the diffraction limit, which prevents the control over light at the nanoscale (~200 nm or less). ...
• Optogenetic programming of complex, multiplexed gene expression signals ﻿

(2016-04-20)
Optogenetic tools are genetically expressed signaling pathways that transduce extracellular light signals into intracellular, biochemical signals. These biological signals can be used to interface with intracellular ...
• Optogenetic strategies for stimulus-responsive viral gene delivery ﻿

(2016-04-21)
Heightened interest in the field of gene therapy has led to the development of multitudes of gene vector candidates. Most, if not all, modern vector designs have focused on improving cell binding and entry in an effort to ...
• OPUS-DOSP: A Distance- and Orientation-dependent All-atom Potential Derived from Side-chain Packing ﻿

(2018-05-31)
In this thesis, we report a new distance- and orientation-dependent, all-atom statistical potential derived from side-chain packing, named OPUS-DOSP, for protein structure modeling. The framework of OPUS DOSP is based on ...
• Orality versus textuality in the Reformation: The origin and influence of textuality on theological perspectives in the sixteenth century ﻿

(1990)
The Reformation could not have occurred without the invention of printing. However, it is a mistake to identify the Reformation with textuality. Orality played a role in the movement. In the Reformation, there were ...
• Ordering and motion of anisotropic nanomaterials ﻿

(2012)
Multi-scale ordering of the components is of utmost importance for the preparation of any functional system. This is particularly interesting for the assembly of plamonic nanoparticles which show drastic differences in ...
• Ordinal Regression over Time Series Data, with an Application to Classifying Patient Vital Sign Quality ﻿

(2013-06-05)
This research is concerned with modeling the vital sign data that are present in many electronic health records. Such vital sign data are typically represented as a (possibly multidimensional) time series. My goal is to ...
• Organa doctorum: Gerbert of Aurillac, organbuilder? ﻿

(1995)
Gerbert of Aurillac lived at the end of the millenium preceding our own. He was born an obscure peasant. But by virtue of his excellent education, political acumen and good fortune, he ascended to the highest post in ...
• Organic aerosol formation in forested environments: the roles of a forest canopy and the nitrate radical ﻿

(2018-08-09)
The work presented here describes the observations of organic aerosols in a rural forested environment in northern Michigan and an urban forested environment north of Houston, TX. Source apportionment techniques are used ...

(1978)

(1971)
• Organization and imaging of three-dimensional seismic reflection data before stack ﻿

(1994)
Pre-stack imaging of 3D seismic reflection data is at present a major challenge of seismic data processing. The main difficulty arises because of the limited power of today's computers. Manipulating volumes of 3D multi-fold ...
• Organization and practica. Case studies of four large Houston architectural firms ﻿

(1978)
The purpose of this study was to investigate and establish linkages between architectural practice and organization. Linkages refer to the interrelationships among: (1) what one does with respect to professional, ...
• Organization for revolution: the Committee of Correspondence system in Massachusetts, 1772-1775 ﻿

(1970)
The greatest obstacle which the Massachusetts radicals faced in their Campaign to overthrow the Royal government was not the Tory party, but rather the reluctance of the moderate Whigs to engage in any activities which ...
• Organization of space ﻿

(1969)
Space is the container of all material objects. A material object not situated in space is inconceivable. Space is, in a sense, a reality superior to matter. Throughout history man has had different understandings of the ...
• Organizing bodies: Creating and funding experimental dance in the United States, 1965--2000 ﻿

(2002)
Avant-garde artists are among the most broadly theorized sub-groups of cultural producers. Artistic vanguards been theorized in two opposing ways---either as uniquely able to change social conditions through artistic ...
• Organizing Legislative Parties: How Elections and Policy Positions Shape Intraparty Politics ﻿

(2016-04-28)
In this dissertation project, I examine how elections produce the diverse preferences within political parties and how these differences are managed by party organizations in legislatures. Existing research on legislative ...
• Orientation effects in cross-beam ionization reactions between potassium and symmetric-top molecules ﻿

(1993)
Symmetric-top molecules (CF$\sb3$Br, CF$\sb3$Cl, CF$\sb3$H and CH$\sb3$Br) in a seeded supersonic nozzle beam are orientation selected by a hexapole electric field, and collide at a right angle with fast (3-40 eV) potassium ...
