• #### Aphasia: Some neurological, anthropological and postmodern implications of disturbed speech ﻿

(1992)
This work begins by examining the history of aphasia studies, placing them in the context of historically concurrent theories about speech and language. The historical analysis can be read as a deconstructive incision into ...
• #### Aphasic patients' comprehension and production: Contrasting function words and content words ﻿

(1990)
This study investigates the function word deficits in aphasic patients and, in particular, agrammatic Broca's aphasics. Several explanations for the function word problem are addressed including a function word vocabulary ...
• #### Apoglobin stability and ligand movements in mammalian myoglobins ﻿

(1998)
The design of recombinant globins as oxygen storage and delivery pharmaceuticals must address two key protein engineering problems, one dealing with the improvement of apoprotein stability and the other with the structural ...

(1960)

(1967)
• #### Application insight through performance modeling ﻿

(2008)
Tuning the performance of applications requires understanding the interactions between code and target architecture. Hardware counters, present in all modern processors, can identify possible causes of performance problems ...
• #### Application of a novel carbonyl ene reaction: Total syntheses of phyllanthocin and chlorovulone II ﻿

(1998)
We describe the total syntheses of $(\pm)$-phyllanthocin (1), the aglycon of the potent antineoplastic agent phyllanthoside (2a), and of $(\pm)$-chlorovulone II (3), a halogenated marine prostanoid with high antiproliferative ...

(1972)
• #### Application of an empirically-derived polytropic index for the solar wind to a solar wind shock propagation model ﻿

(1994)
Data from the Helios 1 spacecraft have been used to determine an empirical value for the polytropic index for the free-streaming solar wind. Application of this non-adiabatic polytropic index to a two-dimensional solar ...
• #### Application of back-propagation neural networks to system identification and process control ﻿

(1991)
Certain properties of the back-propagation neural network have been found to be potentially useful in structuring models for process control applications. The network's relative simplicity and its ability to learn by example ...
• #### Application of back-propagation neural networks to the modeling and control of multiple-input, multiple-output processes ﻿

(1991)
Certain properties of back-propagation neural networks have been found to be useful in structuring models for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) processes. The network's simplicity and its ability to identify the ...
• #### Application of Bayesian Modeling in High-throughput Genomic Data and Clinical Trial Design ﻿

(2013-08-23)
My dissertation mainly focuses on developing Bayesian models for high-throughput data and clinical trial design. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology generates millions of short reads, which provide valuable information ...
• #### Application of BIOPLUME II to simulate biodegradation: A study of an aviation fuel spill from a leaking underground storage tank in Traverse City, Michigan (Groundwater contamination) ﻿

(1989)
BIOPLUME II is a two-dimensional ground water transport model that incorporates decay terms to simulate biodegradation of organic compounds. First, the ground water data was studied, and trends in the contaminant concentrations ...
• #### Application of bubble columns to gas-liquid chromatography ﻿

(1965)
When a gas bubble rises through a liquid in a tube of suitable internal diameter, the thin liquid film flowing past the bubble approaches equilibrium with the contents of the bubble. If perfect mixing within the bubble is ...
• #### Application of Compact, Geometrically Complex Shape Memory Alloy Devices for Seismic Enhancement of Highway Bridge Expansion Joints ﻿

(2014-04-25)
Highway bridges are an important part of transportation networks. They provide connectivity across waterways, ravines and other roadways, reducing commuting times and facilitating social community. The disruption of their ...
• #### Application of conformal solution theory to vapor-liquid equilibrium ﻿

(1974)
Several different variation of the binary-K expansion method are presented, based on the conformal solution theory expansion of Gibbs free energy by Byers Brown. First and second order terms are included and several kinds ...
• #### Application of diode-laser-pumped difference-frequency generation to spectroscopic trace gas detection in the atmosphere ﻿

(1995)
The application of diode-laser-pumped tunable IR sources to trace gas detection in air is discussed. The design and technology issues of CW tunable mid-infrared difference-frequency generation are addressed. Feasibility ...
• #### Application of enzyme-mediated esterifications to the resolution of chiral alcohols and phosphines ﻿

(1993)
Optically active allylic, propargylic, and aliphatic alcohols (33 examples) were obtained by kinetic resolution using transesterification catalyzed by an enzyme from Pseudomonas sp. (Amano Enzyme Co., AK). In every case ...

(1970)
• #### Application of Foam for Mobility Control in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Process ﻿

(2014-04-24)
This thesis focuses on the application of foam for mobility control in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) process. The performance of foam and surfactants was evaluated by systematic laboratory study. This includes the screening ...
