• #### Representing occulted projections: Cultivating anamorphic visions in the Paradise Garden ﻿

(2000)
Our conception of Paradise is derived from the Old Persian word pairidaeza, referring directly to a hidden, walled garden. Such a mythical garden protects its occupant from the extrinsic gaze of those less fortunate. Taqiyah ...
• #### Repressor proteins: Ligand binding, thermodynamics and assembly ﻿

(2002)
LacI and PurR are members of the extended LacI/GalR family of bacterial proteins that regulate genetic expression. Detailed kinetic and thermodynamic studies on PurR were compared with results for homologous LacI. Operator ...
• #### Reproductive conflicts in the social wasp, Eustenogaster fraterna, and in the social amoeba, Dictyostelium discoideum ﻿

(2002)
My dissertation encompasses three studies of social behavior. Two explore the reproductive conflicts that occur between cooperating individuals. I examine conflict at two levels: within colonies of the social wasp, ...
• #### Reprogramming the proteostasis network to prevent the accumulation of alpha-synuclein aggregates ﻿

(2014-03-14)
Protein misfolding and aggregation characterizes the development of a number of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. The hallmark of Parkinson’s disease is the formation ...
• #### Rerailing ﻿

(1997)
On Chicago's Metropolitan Rail system (Metra), the conventional commuter rail station remains configured much as it did when it served commuter suburbs of the late 19th century. The contemporary commuter station, however, ...
• #### Research toward the synthesis of gamma-rubromycin and heliquinomycin ﻿

(2003)
The goal of this project is to develop the strategies necessary to synthesize the rubromycin class of natural products. Synthesis of fully functionalized isocoumarin and naphthoquinone moieties of rubromycin and related ...
• #### Research toward the synthesis of heliquinomycin ﻿

(2007)
Heliquinomycin, a member of a rubromycin family of natural products, is a complex natural product consisting of a naphthoquinone and an isocoumarin which are linked through a 5,6-spiroketal functionality. The spiroketal ...
• #### Research toward the total synthesis of lactonamycin and related polyketides ﻿

(2004)
Research toward the total synthesis of the promising antibiotic lactonamycin is reported. Lactonamycin exhibits a wide range of potentially useful biological activities. Most notable among these, is the potent activity ...
• #### Research towards the synthesis of the furanosteroid class of natural products ﻿

(2003)
The goal of this research was to explore new routes for the construction of viridin- and xestoquinone-related classes of natural products along with similar non-natural products. The four main targets being addressed are ...
• #### Reshaping the metallic surface of a gold nanoshell ﻿

(2004)
Two methods for the controlled reshaping of metal nanoparticles have been investigated: pulsed laser induced reshaping and surfactant-mediated restructuring. The laser induced shape changes of gold nanoshells have been ...
• #### Residential frameworks for the transient: A critical analysis of object event relationships in transient residential sites ﻿

(1995)
This thesis is an effort to respond to our unstable, de-centered quality of living. The single family house is not reflective of our dependency on mobility. As the ultimate transient, the homeless are the inspiration behind ...
• #### Residual flexibility methods for decoupled analysis of integrated structural systems ﻿

(1998)
Methods of dynamic analysis of large structural systems used in aerospace applications are examined. Full-system solutions are undesirable due to computational cost and logistics issues. Traditional substructuring methods ...
• #### Residues controlling the function and stability of the CD corner in myoglobin and hemoglobin ﻿

(1995)
All globins consist of eight $\alpha$ helices labelled A through H and connected by loop regions, except mammalian $\alpha$ globins which lack a D helix. Myoglobin is used as a simple model for the study of the hemoglobin ...
• #### Resistive Switching and Memory effects in Silicon Oxide Based Nanostructures ﻿

(2012)
Silicon oxide (SiO x 1 ∠ x [∠, double =]2) has long been used and considered as a passive and insulating component in the construction of electronic devices. In contrast, here the active role of SiO x in constructing a ...
• #### Resistive switching in silicon oxide-based systems ﻿

(2010)
Voltage-controlled resistive switching in various gap systems on SiO2 substrates is demonstrated. The nanosized gaps are made by several means using different materials including metals, semiconductors and amorphous carbon. ...
• #### RESISTOMETRIC STUDY OF IRON-BASED ALLOYS NITRIDED BY CONSTANT ACTIVITY AGING ﻿

(1982)
Constant activity nitriding experiments were performed in Fe-V and Fe-Mo alloys. The nitriding was accomplished aging the alloys in a NH(,3)/H(,2) atmosphere at temperature between 400(DEGREES)C and 600(DEGREES)C, during ...
• #### Resistor networks and optimal grids for the numerical solution of electrical impedance tomography with partial boundary measurements ﻿

(2010)
The problem of Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) with partial boundary measurements is to determine the electric conductivity inside a body from the simultaneous measurements of direct currents and voltages on a subset ...
• #### Resolving the nanoscale mechanisms of calcite growth and dissolution from nonstoichiometric and microbial solutions ﻿

(2008)
The relative rates of calcite (CaCO3) precipitation and dissolution largely determine the preservation and subsequent accumulation of carbonate in the geologic record and are fundamental parameters for predicting the fate ...
• #### Resonances for carbon bombarded by deuterons ﻿

(1948)
Abstract Not Available.
• #### RESONANT AND NONRESONANT PION PRODUCTION AT 790 MEV ﻿

(1982)
Fifth-order differential cross sections, (DIAGRAM, TABLE OR GRAPHIC OMITTED...PLEASE SEE DAI) have been measured for the reaction n+p(--->)p+p+(pi)('-) at an incident neutron energy of 790 (+OR-) 5 MeV. The experiment was ...
