• #### Rates of solubilization of triolein and triolein/fatty acid mixtures and dissolution processes of neat surfactants ﻿

(1998)
Videomicroscopy was used to measure rates of solubilization of triolein drops injected into thin, rectangular glass cells containing solutions of nonionic surfactants and their mixtures with alcohols at various temperatures. ...
• #### Rational points on del Pezzo surfaces of degree 1 and 2 ﻿

(2011)
One of the fundamental problems in Algebraic Geometry is to study solutions to certain systems of polynomial equations in several variables, or in other words, find rational points on a given variety which is defined by ...
• #### Rbt1 is required for Nitric Oxide Stress Resistance in the Human Commensal Fungus Candida albicans ﻿

(2013-12-03)
Candida albicans is a human‐resident opportunistic fungal pathogen. Persistence of C. albicans is largely affected by resistance to host‐generate nitric oxide (NO) mediated nitrosative stress. The transcription factor Cta4 ...
• #### RCC: A compiler for the R language for statistical computing ﻿

(2004)
R is a programming language for statistics that enables users to express computation at a high level of abstraction. Until now, its only implementation has been the R interpreter. Though interpretation is convenient for ...
• #### (Re)collecting the past: Fashion, wardrobe, and memory ﻿

(2003)
An ethnographic look at different segments of the vintage clothing and used clothing markets in order to understand the practices of people who sell, purchase, collect, keep, display in museums, and auction used clothes ...
• #### (Re)growing the Tree: Early Christian Mysticism, Angelomorphic Identity, and the Shepherd of Hermas ﻿

(2014-04-08)
This study analyzes the Shepherd of Hermas with a focus on those elements within the text that relate to the transformation of the righteous into the androgynous embodied divine glory. In so doing, Hermas is placed within ...
