• #### Seasonal variation of metabolism and thyroid activity in the Mexican ground squirrel Citellus mexicanus ﻿

(1965)
Metabolic measurements in thermal neutrality for the Mexican ground squirrel, Citellus mexicanus, in-dicated a mean summer metabolism of 1.10± .08 cc 02/gm/hr and a mean winter metabolism of .56±.08 cc 02/gm/hr. Animals ...
• #### Second order correct boundary conditions for the solution of parabolic partial differential equations ﻿

(1961)
This paper is concerned with the numerical solution of the parabolic partial differential equation subject to boundary conditions of Neumann type. Douglas (2) and Rose (6) have shown that certain finite difference ...
• #### Second-order corrections to the Gaussian effective potential for lambda phi(4) and other theories ﻿

(1990)
We formulate a systematic, nonperturbative expansion for the effective potential of $\lambda\phi\sp4$ theory. At first order it gives the Gaussian effective potential (GEP), which itself contains the 1-loop and leading-order ...

• #### Secondary hydrogen isotope effects in ionic organic reactions ﻿

(1958)
Abstract Not Available.
• #### Secondhand Economies: Recycling, Reuse, and Exchange in the Victorian Novel ﻿

(2011)
This dissertation examines patterns of secondhand exchange in the Victorian novel as a critical counterpoint to the more frequently discussed literary representations of industrial production and consumption. Analyzing ...
• #### Secret epiphanies: The hermeneutics of revealing and concealing in the Fourth Gospel ﻿

(1994)
In this thesis I attempt to demonstrate that the so-called "Johannine problem" is deeply involved in the hermeneutical issues of concealing and revealing, secrecy and mystery. Thus, the "Johannine problem" is re-constituted ...
• #### Secular spiritualism evolved: The market as communal sanctuary ﻿

(1994)
Through a comparative analysis of selected modern and contemporary works, both religious and secular, a secular spiritualism is identified. The subversion of representation and suppression of a traditional sacred language, ...
• #### Secularisation et experience religieuse: L'ambiguite de la modernite ﻿

(2009)
Related but not limited to French studies, my work seeks to understand the variety and complexity of religion and religious experience today. With the rise of modernity, Western societies came first to doubt the foundations ...
• #### Secure implementation, network cost sharing and oligopolistic price discrimination ﻿

(2010)
In chapter 1, we consider the possibility of Secure Implementation in Production Economies beyond the result provided in the Saijo et al. (2007) paper. We find a large class of SCFs to be securely implementable. The serial ...
• #### Securing peer to peer systems using webs of trust ﻿

(2006)
Most current peer-to-peer systems are designed to allow potentially millions of nodes to efficiently route messages and store data on other nodes. If some of those nodes are malicious, they have numerous opportunities for ...
• #### Security policy choices: Foreign policy behavior as a function of threat, capability and governmental structure ﻿

(1999)
This study presents a theoretical model of state security policy choice under varying conditions of external threat and domestic political competition. This model specifies a set of conditions associated with state capability, ...
• #### Sediment microstructures and deformation at the toe of the Nankai accretionary prism: Effects of accretion and diagenesis, and evolution of the decollement ﻿

(2004)
Sediments incorporated into accretionary prisms experience significant changes in physical properties, grain fabric, and diagenesis. The record of such changes is preserved in sediment microstructures. Scanning electron ...
• #### SEDIMENTARY ENVIRONMENT AND PETROLOGY OF THE AIN TOBI FORMATION, TRIPOLITANIA, LIBYA ﻿

(1982)
The Aptian to Cenomanian aged Ain Tobi Formation of northwest Libya and adjacent Tunisia is a shallowing upward platform deposit. It has been studied in detail long its outcrop in the Jebel Nefusa of Tripolitania and with ...
• #### Sedimentary facies and evolution of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas shelf ﻿

(1999)
Examination of Late Pleistocene to recent coastal lithosomes on the east Texas continental shelf can help refine current models aimed at understanding how coastal environments respond to a variety of forcing mechanisms ...

• #### Sedimentological and geochemical study of the late Eocene to early Oligocene Yumaque formation, east Pisco Basin, Peru ﻿

(1993)
Yumaque formation biosiliceous sediments resemble modern and Neogene sediments deposited under coastal upwelling conditions. High biogenic silica accumulation rates (up to 69 g$\cdot$cm$\sp{-2}\cdot$yr$\sp{-3}$), preservation ...
• #### Sedimentological Investigations of Paleo-Ice Sheet Dynamics in West Antarctica ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Modern Pine Island and Thwaites Glaciers, which both drain into Pine Island Bay, are some of the fastest moving portions of the cryosphere and may be the most unstable ice streams in Antarctica. I examined over 133 cores ...
