• #### Can semantic knowledge organization be revealed through automatic semantic priming? ﻿

(1990)
Many researchers have assumed that testing for semantic priming in a lexical decision task assesses whether aphasic patients have preserved automatic semantic processing. However, research with normal subjects has shown ...
• #### Can you hear the size of the vertices? An inverse spectral problem of Laplacians on weighted graphs ﻿

(1998)
Let G be a simple graph with n vertices. We define a Laplacian $\Delta$ on G which depends on an assignment of a weight to each vertex of G. One of the eigenvalues of $\Delta$ will always be 0. We fix the remaining (n $-$ ...
• #### Can't get it out of my head: The role of gender in the relations between ruminative styles, negative affect, and stress behaviors ﻿

(2010)
Rumination is a common mental experience that has received relatively little attention with respect to its precise dimensionality. The current research identifies seven such dimensions in the newly developed Survey of ...
• #### Capacity of low power multiuser systems with antenna arrays ﻿

(2005)
In this thesis, we study wireless multiuser communication systems in the regime of low spectral efficiencies, where users and the multiple access point are equipped with antenna arrays. Our first contribution is to develop ...

• #### Capsizing the flagship: A study in PHARMETICS ﻿

(1999)
P H A R M E T I C S dispensary is a prototype retail facility developed by combining one drugstore chain conglomerate and one international cosmetic company. The dispensary is sited as an operational component in commerce, ...
• #### Capturing the city/spatializing the captured: An animated documentary of Hong Kong ﻿

(1999)
The incredible density and the ever-moving round-the clock public transport constitute the vibrant character of Hong Kong. In this totally consumptive city where the turnover rate is unbelievably fast, people have no time ...

• #### Carbon nanotube based hybrid nanostructures: Synthesis and applications ﻿

(2010)
Hybrid nanostructures are fascinating materials for their promising applications in future nanoelectronics, electrical interconnects and energy storage devices. Practical ways of connecting individual carbon nanotubes to ...
• #### Carbon Nanotube Doping Procedures for Three-Dimensional Macro-Structures and Gallium-Nitride Functionalization ﻿

(2014-05-05)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in all of their forms are considered “gamechanger” materials that will revolutionize the modern world through many diverse applications. Over 20 years of research has gone into CNT materials, yet ...
• #### Carbon nanotubes filled polymer composites: A comprehensive study on improving dispersion, network formation and electrical conductivity ﻿

(2010)
In this dissertation, we determine how the dispersion, network formation and alignment of carbon nanotubes in polymer nanocomposites affect the electrical properties of two different polymer composite systems: high temperature ...
• #### Carbon nanotubes thermal conductivity analysis using molecular dynamics simulations ﻿

(2010)
Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations are used to determine the thermal conductivities of (5,5) single wall carbon nanotubes. By fixing the temperatures of opposing ends of an armchair single wall carbon nanotube ...
• #### Carbon sequestration in the forests of East Texas ﻿

(2003)
Increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 threaten to change the earth's climate and diversity in numerous adverse ways. This thesis explores aspects of two potential types of terrestrial sinks in East Texas, plantation rotation ...
• #### Carbon Sequestration through Biochar Soil Amendment: Experimental studies and mathematical modeling ﻿

(2012-09-05)
Intentional amendment of soil with charcoal (called biochar) is a promising new approach to sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide and increase soil fertility. However, the environmental properties of biochars can vary with ...
