• #### Scanning probe analysis of polydiacetylene nanowires and poly(3-hexylthiophene) thin films ﻿

(2010)
In molecular and organic electronic systems, the electrode material has considerable influence on the performance of the resulting device. The advent of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and its various spectroscopic ...
• #### Scattering of acoustic energy from rough deep ocean seafloor: A numerical modeling approach ﻿

(1995)
The highly heterogeneous and anelastic nature of deep ocean seafloor results in complex reverberation as acoustic energy incident from the overlaying water column interacts and scatters from it. To gain a deeper understanding ...
• #### Scattering of antiplane surface waves by an embedded crack in a layered elastic solid ﻿

(1996)
The scattering of an incident antiplane surface wave (Love-wave) by an embedded crack normal to the free surface in a layered half-space is investigated in this study. The crack is first assumed to be entirely contained ...
• #### Scattering of antiplane waves by fluid-filled cracks ﻿

(1999)
Propagation of time-harmonic antiplane waves in an unbounded linearly-elastic solid containing parallel fluid-filled cracks is investigated. The viscous friction effects are represented by appropriate boundary conditions ...
• #### Scattering operator for elastic and inelastic resonant x-ray scattering ﻿

(1994)
I have shown that in the fast collision approximation, the scattering operator for resonant x-ray scattering can be expressed in terms of simple spin-orbital moment operators M$\sp{(k)}$(l,s) of the valence shell involved ...
• #### Scheduling Macro-DataFlow Programs on Task-Parallel Runtime Systems ﻿

(2011)
Though multicore systems are ubiquitous, parallel programming models for these systems are generally not accessible to a wide programmer community. The macro-dataflow model is an attractive stepping stone to implicit ...
• #### Scheduling with QoS in parallel I/O systems ﻿

(2005)
Parallel I/O architectures have become attractive in the context of high performance computing and services provided by high bandwidth data centers. It is challenging to provide a scheduling technique that maximizes ...

• #### Schottisches and scars: Finding the unity in music during the division of the Civil War ﻿

(2009)
In this paper, I explore the role of social dance music, particularly the schottische, during the Civil War to address the issue of musical unity during cultural division. My research focused on a set of sixteen schottisches ...
• #### Schwabenspiegel: Lehenrechtbuch; an English translation ﻿

(1967)
This English translation of the Lehenrechtbuch (Book of Territorial Law) of the thirteenth century Schwabenspiegel (Swabian Mirror), a German lawbook written in Middle High German, has two basic objects. The immediate ...
• #### Science of single-wall carbon nanotubes: Purification, characterization and chemistry ﻿

(2001)
Characterization of raw nanotube materials produced by different methods is demonstrated. Depending on the production methods, tubes of different diameters can be produced. Purification of single wall carbon nanotubes ...
• #### SCIENCE, POETRY, FREE PLAY ﻿

(1982)
The felt antithesis between science and poetry has a long history. Almost every major theorist of literature, from Sidney through Arnold to Cleanth Brooks, has defined literature in contradistinction to science. This ...
• #### Scintillation detector development for the solenoidal tracker at RHIC (STAR) and the CEBAF large acceptance spectrometer (CLAS) ﻿

(1996)
After a brief introduction describing some of the physics and mechanics of scintillation detection, results of the development for the Central Trigger Barrel (CTB) for STAR and the Start Counter for CLAS are discussed. For ...
• #### Scordatura literature for unaccompanied violoncello in the 20th century: Historical background, analysis of works, and practical considerations for composers and performers ﻿

(2005)
The 20th century has seen a flowering of the use of alternate tunings on the cello. Numerous works for string instruments throughout history make use of scordatura, which is a term that refers to any tuning that is not the ...
• #### Screaming Azaleas. (Original composition); ﻿

(1996)
Screaming Azaleas is a set of songs about life in the South. The focus of this work is similar to a common thematic motif in classic southern literature--the idea of being trapped in an endless cycle of disasters. The first ...
• #### Screened Coulomb hybrid density functionals ﻿

(2004)
The screened Coulomb hybrid density functional theory developed in this work extends the applicability of hybrid functionals to large molecules and solids. Traditional hybrid functionals have been applied to medium sized ...
• #### Screw and Edge Dislocations in Cement Phases: Atomic Modeling ﻿

(2013-10-09)
Cement is the key strengthening and the most energy-intensive ingredient in concrete. With increasing pressure for reducing energy consumption in cement manufacturing, there is an urgent need to understand the basic ...
• #### Sea change or, impending dune ﻿

(2003)
The slow disaster of shoreline erosion has been met with various human attempts to control the relationship between Galveston Island and the Gulf of Mexico. In territorializing the island as private property, the main ...
• #### Search for additional gauge bosons ﻿

(1995)
We have searched for evidence of $W\sp\prime \to e\nu$ and $Z\sp\prime \to ee$ in data collected with the DO detector at the Tevatron during the 1992-1993 $p\bar p$ collider run at $\sqrt{s}$ = 1.8 TeV. We set an upper ...
