• #### Making waste public ﻿

(2009)
This thesis questions the boundaries that define waste as a public or private dilemma, investigating these boundaries as productive sites for the imagination of social life. Learning from methods of processing, conveyance ...
• #### Male production and worker policing in Parachartergus colobopterus, a neotropical, swarm-founding wasp ﻿

(1998)
In many social insects, workers are capable of producing males. Workers are more highly related to their own sons than to the sons of the queens, and so it is surprising that queens often monopolize male production even ...
• #### MALLARME'S 'LES NOCES D'HERODIADE, MYSTERE': A PSYCHOANALYTIC READING (FRANCE) ﻿

(1983)
Although published in 1959, the "Herodiade" manuscript has received very little attention. The purpose of this dissertation is to end this critical silence by a reading of the integral work which consists of some 200 pages ...

(1982)
• #### Mammalian amino acid decarboxylases ﻿

(1960)
Abstract Not Available.

(1968)
• #### Managerial choice of discretionary accounting methods: An empirical evaluation of security market response ﻿

(1989)
This study presents a comprehensive evaluation of managerial choice of discretionary accounting methods and the use of the reporting process in income smoothing. After analyzing concepts of smoothing behavior, including ...
• #### Managers' distribution of developmental experiences in the workplace ﻿

(2005)
The current research investigates the amount and quality of the developmental work experiences engaged in by male and female managers. Managers reported the extent to which they had participated in ten quantitative work ...
• #### Managing interprocedural optimization ﻿

(1991)
This dissertation addresses a number of important issues related to interprocedural optimization. Interprocedural optimization is an integral component in a compilation system for high-performance computing. The importance ...
• #### Managing the copper paradox: Protein stability, copper-binding, and inter-protein interactions of copper chaperones ﻿

(2010)
To minimize copper (Cu) toxicity, organisms have evolved Cu transport pathways involving soluble metallochaperones that bind, transport, and deliver Cu+ to specific partner proteins, such as Cu-ATPases. The human Cu ...
• #### Manetho: Fault tolerance in distributed systems using rollback-recovery and process replication ﻿

(1994)
This dissertation presents a new protocol that allows rollback-recovery and process replication to co-exist in a distributed system. The protocol relies on a novel data structure called the antecedence graph, which tracks ...
• #### Manhattan's Annex: The crosstown [of] excess ﻿

(2009)
MANHATTAN'S ANNEX: the crosstown [of] excess is a proposal that reconsiders what excess means in the contemporary city. Our society now just has glimpses of individual indulgence---from singular buildings to individualized ...
• #### Manifesting Exchange ﻿

(2012-09-05)
Exchange is at the core of public space. Whether trading products or sharing information, exchange between people produces social interactions and spatialized hubs of activity. Without exchange public spaces fail. Today, ...
• #### Manipulation and Biological Applications of Gold Nanorods ﻿

(2011)
This thesis compared anionic polyelectrolyte wrapping stabilization with poly(sodium 4-stryene-sulfonate), (PSS), polyelectrolyte and methoxy (polyethylene glycol)-thiol (mPEG (5000) -SH) strategies. From this data the ...
• #### Manipulation of Carbon Nanostructures for Multifunctional Composite Materials ﻿

(2011)
Composite fibers comprised of 5:95 wt ratio of ultra-short single walled carbon nanotubes (US-SWCNT):polyacrylonitrile (PAN) were spun using a dry-jet wet-spinning method followed by oxidative stabilization at 285 °C. The ...
• #### Manipulation of electromagnetic fields with plasmonic nanostructures: Nonlinear frequency mixing, optical manipulation, enhancement and suppression of photocurrent in a silicon photodiode, and surface-enhanced spectroscopy ﻿

(2010)
Metallic nanostructures are one of the most versatile tools available for manipulating light at the nanoscale. These nanostructures support surface plasmons, which are collective excitations of the conduction electrons ...
• #### Manipulation of Energy Propagation, Redirection, and Dissipation by Tunable Plasmonic Nanostructures ﻿

(2013-07-24)
Plasmons, the collective electronic oscillations of metallic nanoparticles and nanostructures, are at the forefront of the development of nanoscale optics. Metallic nanostructures with their geometry-dependent optical ...
• #### Manly acts: Buenos Aires, 24 March 1996 ﻿

(1998)
Ethnographic fieldwork and writing are employed to explore how men in Buenos Aires construct and contest masculinity. The fieldwork is focused on three sites of manly performance: asado (Argentine barbecue), soccer, and ...
• #### Manufacturing resiliency ﻿

(1997)
As a forum for a prototypical form of education/manufacturing, this thesis enables manufacturing workers to learn how to adapt to differing situations in the workplace. By designing a resilient facility that allows for a ...
• #### Many many many many parking spaces ﻿

(1999)
"Houston is the first major city without streets"$\sp1$ It is a city of parking space, and mostly surface parking at that. Economic incentives and automobility dictate the ground rules by which the contemporary city is ...
