• Covering spaces ﻿

(1959)
Covering Spaces may be studied from several points of view and with respect to many kinds of spaces. The earliest form of covering spaces considered was that of the Riemann surface where the spaces involved are 2-dimensional ...
• Covering surfaces ﻿

(1951)
Certain parts of the theory of covering surfaces are treated briefly in the literature as they occur in connection with other topics, but very little has been written on the subject itself, particularly in English. Besides ...

(1982)
• Cracking in brittle materials during low-load indentation and its relation to fracture toughness ﻿

(1995)
Nanoindentation is a widely recognized method for characterizing the mechanical properties of thin films and small volumes. This thesis reports the results of an investigation aimed at developing a technique by which the ...

(1969)
• Crash motel, perception and process: Machines for people who still walk ﻿

(1995)
"The Machine has not divorced us from nature. By means of the machine, we have discovered a new, previously unanticipated feature of nature."$\sp1$ Human Beings are divine because they participate in the movements of the ...
• Creating characters and reconstructing texts: Evaluation in children's oral narrative re-tellings ﻿

(2001)
This research analyzes the use of evaluative features in English language oral narrative re-tellings among a multi-lingual population of ninety-eight 2nd and 4th grade students. The results of the analyses strengthen our ...
• Creating Emergency: Hierarchy, Ideology, and Competition in the Humanitarian Network of (Post-)Disaster Port-au-Prince ﻿

(2015-11-10)
I assert that in the months and years following the January 2010 earthquake, the humanitarian ecology in Port-au-Prince was neither a singular apparatus, as it is often called, nor a scattered and uncontained chaos of ...
• Creating Selves: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of Self and Creativity in African American Religion ﻿

(2011)
African American religious studies has offered a selective treatment of self. In such discourse, self is equated to a collective identity solely premised upon liberation from multidimensional forms of social oppression, ...
• Creating Strontium Rydberg Atoms ﻿

(2013-05-28)
Dipole-dipole interactions, the strongest, longest-range interactions possible between two neutral atoms, cannot be better manifested anywhere else than in a Rydberg atomic system. Rydberg atoms, having high principal ...
• Creating the threshold: Between the architectural sublime and the simply terrible (Massachusetts) ﻿

(1993)
The program is the development of a library for Smith College to house the collection of poetic works by Emily Dickinson. The library is the result of an examination of creating an architectural space that generates the ...
• CREATION OF AN AMERICAN STATE: POLITICS IN NORTH CAROLINA, 1765 - 1789 ﻿

(1980)
North Carolina had never been a docile colony. She was rough-hewn, populated by ambitious men whose interests often clashed with those sent to govern them. Yet she was a reluctant revolutionary and her citizens, so suspicious ...
• Creative development financing ﻿

(1972)
Although the development process is often ill defined and somewhat intangible, there is a definite rationale to the methodology employed to effectuate the creation of our built environment. To comprehend this rationale, ...
• Criminalizing Space: Ideological and Institutional Productions of Race, Gender, and State-sanctioned Violence in Houston, 1948-1967 ﻿

(2017-03-31)
Criminalizing Space is a social history of ideas that explores various ways racial residential segregation affected the life chances of black Houstonians during the middle of the twentieth century. Jim Crow polices, custom, ...
• Criterion for interchange instability in the plasma sheet ﻿

(2008)
Interchange instability is an important dynamic mechanism in plasma physics and has been advanced as an explanation of a variety of phenomena in the magnetospheric physics. This work derives a new instability criterion for ...
• CRITICAL DYNAMICS OF LIQUID CRYSTAL ABOVE THE ISOTROPIC - NEMATIC PHASE TRANSITION ﻿

(1981)
Dynamics of liquid crystals above the isotropic-nematic phase transition point is studied. The phase transition is of first-order, but nearly critical. Near the transition point the correlation length (zeta) of molecular ...
• Critical point pressure sensitivity ﻿

(2002)
A new means of heat transfer known as the piston effect was identified in 1989. The piston effect is where the expanding thermal boundary layer acts like a piston which compresses the bulk fluid. An examination of the ...
• Critical points of the determinant of the Laplace operator ﻿

(1993)
The determinant of the Laplace operator, det $\Delta$, is a function on the set of metrics on a compact manifold. Generalizing the work of Osgood, Phillips, and Sarnak on surfaces, we consider one-parameter variations of ...
• Critical Riemannian metrics ﻿

(1990)
Let $(M,g)$ be a compact oriented n-dimensional smooth Riemannian manifold. Consider the following quadratic Riemannian functional$$SR(g) = \int\sb{M}\ \vert R\sb{ijkl}(g)\vert \sp{2}d\mu$$which is homogeneous of degree ...
• Critical state models for cyclic loading of K(o)-consolidated clay ﻿

(1997)
An anisotropic critical state model for monotonic and cyclic loading of Ko-consolidated clay is presented, based on extension of an existing model. First, the performance of two existing critical state models is evaluated ...
