• #### 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 ...
• #### 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-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 ...
• #### 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 ...

(1973)
• #### Observation of jet photoproduction and comparison to Monte Carlo simulation ﻿

(1994)
The photon is the carrier of the electromagnetic force. However in addition to its well known nature, the theories of QCD and quantum mechanics would indicate that the photon can also for brief periods of time split into ...
• #### Observation of low energy protons in the geomagnetic tail at lunar distances ﻿

(1975)
Using the three Suprathermal Ion Detectors stationed on the moon, we have detected a region of plasma flowing anti-sunward along the ordered field lines of the geomagnetic tail. This plasma flow is found within the tail, ...
• #### Observational analysis of the compositional variation in solar filaments ﻿

(2007)
Solar filaments have long been associated with coronal mass ejections and Space Weather phenomena. Filaments are dynamcal, and changes in their overall mass or its distribution could trigger an eruption. However, a ...
• #### Observational and theoretical interpretation of energetic particle transport in solar flares ﻿

(2008)
The combination of excellent space-based remote sensing, and image reconstruction techniques, as well as improvements in numerical modeling, help enhance our understanding of particle transport in solar flares. We conduct ...
