    • W+W− boson pair production in proton-proton collisions at √s=13  TeV 

      CMS Collaboration (2020)
      A measurement of the W+W− boson pair production cross section in proton-proton collisions at √s=13  TeV is presented. The data used in this study are collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 35.9  fb−1. The W+W− candidate events are selected by requiring two oppositely charged leptons (electrons ...
    • W-CDMA real-time algorithm implementation and evaluation 

      Jones, Bryan Allen (2000-05-20)
      This paper describes a platform to enable and explore the design and implementation of next-generation CDMA wireless base stations. A DSP and FPGA-based multiprocessor board is integrated into a Simulink-based wireless testbed environment, providing the ability to simulate the behavior and performance of new algorithms. Performance measurements are ...
    • Wafer-scale films of aligned single-wall carbon nanotubes: preparation, characterization, and optoelectronic applications 

      He, Xiaowei (2015-11-20)
      Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are one-dimensional materials defined by a cylindrical and hollow structure with aspect ratios of up to 10^7:1. Individual SWCNTs have been shown to possess excellent electric, optical, thermal, and mechanical properties that are promising for electronic and optoelectronic device applications. However, when they ...
    • Wafer-scale monodomain films of spontaneously aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes 

      He, Xiaowei; Gao, Weilu; Xie, Lijuan; Li, Bo; Zhang, Qi; (2016)
      The one-dimensional character of electrons, phonons and excitons in individual single-walled carbon nanotubes leads to extremely anisotropic electronic, thermal and optical properties. However, despite significant efforts to develop ways to produce large-scale architectures of aligned nanotubes, macroscopic manifestations of such properties remain ...

    • Walk Don't Run 

      Hazinski, Amelia (2017-04-20)
      This thesis is a public swimming pool on a bridge that spans the Los Angeles River. As Southern California attempts to remake its water infrastructure in response to the ongoing drought, the introduction of public program to these infrastructural investments can make their urban effects more explicit. This thesis suggests that public bathing and ...
    • Walking along chromosomes with super-resolution imaging, contact maps, and integrative modeling 

      Nir, Guy; Farabella, Irene; Estrada, Cynthia Pérez; Ebeling, Carl G.; Beliveau, Brian J.; (2018)
      Chromosome organization is crucial for genome function. Here, we present a method for visualizing chromosomal DNA at super-resolution and then integrating Hi-C data to produce three-dimensional models of chromosome organization. Using the super-resolution microscopy methods of OligoSTORM and OligoDNA-PAINT, we trace 8 megabases of human chromosome ...
    • Wall 

      Oberholzer, Mark Andrew (1994)
      The making of walls is implicit in the formation of buildings, cities and societies. Examining built examples reveals the importance as well as the possibilities of walls. At the scale of a coat of paint, walls affect the individual, while at the scale of the city, walls may represent and direct an entire culture. The wall may be used as both an ...
    • Walltype 

      Meppelink, Joseph Edwin (2000)
      Wall type is a thesis which was based in the reality of a built context: a building typology which is readable in its form and predictable in its character and operation. The light manufacturing operation has as its head an office, and as its body, a shop, in an area ratio of 1:10, and with a set of dichotomies in place as environmental givens and ...
    • The War on Drugs: A New Paradigm 

      Jablecki, Lawrence T. (2008)
    • The War on Terrorism after Iraq 

      Dillingham, Gavin M. (2005)
    • War President : The Approval Ratings of George W. Bush 

      Eichenberg, Richard C.; Stoll, Richard J.; Lebo, Matthew (2006-12)
      The authors estimate a model of the job approval ratings of President George W. Bush that includes five sets of variables: a “honeymoon” effect, an autoregressive function that tracks a decline in approval, measures of economic performance, measures of important “rally events,” and a measure of the costs of war—in this case, the U.S. death toll in ...
    • WARP, a Modular Testbed for Configurable Wireless Network Research at Rice 

      Amiri, Kiarash; Sun, Yang; Murphy, Patrick; Hunter, Chris; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; (2007-03-01)
      Wireless Open-Access Research Platform (WARP), developed at CMC lab, Rice University, provides a scalable and configurable platform for wireless network research. Its programmability and flexibility makes it easy to prototype and implement various physical and network layer protocols and standards. In order to share algorithms and implementations ...
