• #### New techniques for digital filter design ﻿

(1996)
Several new techniques for open problems in the frequency domain design of FIR and IIR digital filters, both iterative and analytic, are presented. This thesis begins by putting forth the notion that explicitly specified ...
• #### New views of collisional vibrational relaxation: Energy removal rates and energy distributions of triplet state pyrazine ﻿

(1997)
Collisional energy removal rates from vibrationally excited T$\sb1$ pyrazine are measured using the refined and validated Competitive Radiationless Decay (CRD) method. Optical excitation followed by intersystem crossing ...
• #### Next generation hydraulic modeling for inundation mapping and flood warning in complex urban systems ﻿

(2007)
This thesis presents a novel methodology for predicting flooding in complex urban environments. MIKE-FLOOD was used to dynamically model the interactions between overland flow, storm sewer drainage, and tail water by linking ...
• #### Niche life ﻿

(2005)
This design project attempts to enlarge the role of urban codes to deal with issues relevant to the condition of the metropolis as a type of ecological niche. It is my view that urban codes are the most useful design ...

(1974)
• #### Nietzsche's Meta-Existentialism ﻿

(2011)
In this work, I offer a new interpretation of Nietzsche's existential philosophy. I argue that, methodologically, Nietzsche's existentialism is a consequence of making the typical existential position foundational, and ...
• #### NIGHTMARE AND DREAM: ANTILYNCHING IN CONGRESS, 1917-1922 ﻿

(1983)
During and immediately following World War I, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People broadened its antilynching program to include a demand for a federal antilynching statute. Seeking the organization's ...
• #### Nine early eighteenth century Italian cantatas on librettos by Antonio Ottoboni ﻿

(2004)
The aim of this thesis was to produce a performing edition of nine cantatas which form part of a collection by librettist Antonio Ottoboni. The cantatas have been transcribed into modern notation and consequently two of ...

(1963)
• #### Nineteenth-century organs in Peru and the special case of Innocente Foglia ﻿

(2002)
Although most of the organs found in Peru today were imported from Europe during the hundred years that followed independence and the establishment of the Republic (1821), only a few of this large and unique collection ...
• #### Nitric oxide dioxygenation in mammalian myoglobins and microbial flavohemoglobins ﻿

(2008)
All hemoglobins catalyze a reaction in which heme-bound dioxygen reacts directly with nitrogen monoxide (NO) to produce nitrate, resulting in the oxidation of the heme iron. This reaction, NO dioxygenation, has been proposed ...
• #### Nitric Oxide: The Missing Link in Omentum-Induced Metabolic reprogramming of ovarian cancers ﻿

(2015-11-24)
A novel metabolic regulatory mechanism of ovarian cancer by omentum adipose-derived stroma cells (O-ASCs) has been discovered. O-ASCs induce survival, migration, and chemoresistance of ovarian cancer cells. However, the ...

(1975)
• #### Nitrification and denitrification in the activated sludge process ﻿

(1992)
The characteristics of the single-sludge nitrification-denitrification process were investigated using influent organics as the carbon source and nitrate as an electron acceptor to see if any oxygen savings could be obtained. ...
• #### NMR formulation evaluation: Hydrogen index, wettability and internal field gradients ﻿

(2001)
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) well logging is finding wide use in formation evaluation. In most cases, it is adequate to use default parameters and interpretation methods to get formation properties. In this work, we ...
• #### NMR oil well logging: Diffusional coupling and internal gradients in porous media ﻿

(2007)
The default assumptions used for interpreting Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) measurements with reservoir rocks fail for many sandstone and carbonate formations. This study provides quantitative understanding of the ...
• #### NMR relaxation and diffusion characterization of hydrocarbon gases and liquids ﻿

(2002)
The proton nuclear spin-lattice relaxation times and self-diffusion coefficients of ethane and propane were measured at elevated temperatures and pressures. It is found that pure ethane and propane depart from the linear ...
• #### NMR surface relaxation, wettability and OBM drilling fluids ﻿

(2005)
NMR surface relaxation mechanisms and their dependence on temperature were investigated. Paramagnetic ions are a very important factor of surface relaxation. The mechanism of the surface enhanced dipole-dipole interaction ...
• #### "No refuge": The woman within/beyond the borders of Henry Adams, Henry James, and others ﻿

(1994)
The dissertation investigates whether there is a place of refuge for women characters within and/or beyond American literary texts written by men around the turn of the twentieth century. Besides major and minor texts of ...
• #### NOA1: A Tool for Understanding Nitric Oxide Accumulation and Fosmidomycin Resistance in Arabidopsis ﻿

(2012)
Chloroplasts generate important cellular signals and synthesize diverse products. The chloroplast-localized protein, Nitric Oxide Associated-1 (NOA1), is implicated in nitric oxide (NO) accumulation and linked to the ...
