• #### New Designs and architectures of electrochemical energy storage devices ﻿

(2014-05-05)
Superior performance of Li-ion batteries led an immediate adaptation of these batteries in portable electronics and demands have rapidly increased due adoption in electric vehicles. Development of novel form-factors of ...
• #### New materials with potential for optical device applications: The synthesis and characterization of new mixed-metal quaternary sulfides and selenides ﻿

(1993)
The search for new materials with desirable optical properties has become important in recent years. In particular, a need has emerged for compounds that are candidates for use as long-wavelength (8-12 $\mu$m) infrared ...
• #### New Metrics on Image Articulation Manifolds Using Optical Flow ﻿

(2011)
Image articulation manifolds (IAMs) arise in a wide variety of contexts in image processing and computer vision applications. IAMs are a natural nonlinear model for image ensembles generated by the variation of imaging ...
• #### New mid-Paleozoic ostracodes from western Tennessee ﻿

(1957)
The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to the general knowledge of middle-Paleozoic ostracoda of Tennessee and thus assist directly as well as indirectly in solving some of the problems which confront the paleontologist ...
• #### New polymeric compositions for nonflammable and thermally stable foams ﻿

(1992)
There is a great need to develop new polymer foam systems that combine the advantages of polyurethane foams (low cost, ease of processing, desirable physical properties) with nonflammability and thermal stability which ...

(1972)
• #### New sufficient condition for Hamiltonian paths ﻿

(2008)
This paper proves a sufficient condition for the existence of Hamiltonian paths in simple connected graphs. This condition was conjectured in 2006 by a computer program named Graffiti.pc. Given examples will show that this ...
• #### New synthetic reactions: Applications to discorhabdins and carbacephems ﻿

(1996)
A novel approach for the synthesis of antitumor agents Discorhabdins (1) is described. The synthetic route features a new Paterno-Buchi photo reaction for the spirocyclic ring preparation and cascade Michael reactions for ...
• #### 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 Theory and Methods for Signals in Unions of Subspaces ﻿

(2014-09-18)
The rapid development and availability of cheap storage and sensing devices has quickly produced a deluge of high-dimensional data. While the dimensionality of modern datasets continues to grow, our saving grace is that ...
• #### 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 ...
