• #### Removal of carbon dioxide and water using a solid amine adsorption bed for extended space flight ﻿

(1993)
An enhanced solid amine based regenerative CO$\sb2$ and H$\sb2$O removal system is being used for the shuttle extended duration orbiter (EDO) missions. A computer model was developed to predict the adsorption of carbon ...
• #### Removal of residual hexadecane from sand columns using neodol 25-9 and a biosurfactant isolated from Rhodococcus species H13-A ﻿

(1996)
The biosurfactant produced by a common soil isolate, Rhodococcus species H13-A (Rhodococcus erythropolis), is effective in removing residual hexadecane, a representative light non-aqueous phase liquid, from sand packed ...
• #### Rendezvous and Proximity Operations at the Earth-Moon L2 Lagrange Point: Navigation Analysis for Preliminary Trajectory Design ﻿

(2014-02-20)
The Earth-Moon L2 point has attracted attention for potential space exploration, and rendezvous is required for several critical operations. The relative dynamics at this location are vastly different from locations ...
• #### Rene Magritte's segmented women: Studies based on two paintings in the Menil Collection (Belgium) ﻿

(1992)
Rene Magritte, Surrealist painter, represented women in segmented forms. He enclosed portions of female anatomy in frames and painted representations of broken, sculpted torsos. In this he was inspired by the example of ...
• #### Renewable housing-VN: Bamboo potentials ﻿

(2009)
Life at water's edge is idyllic when nature is calm. But how can shelter, a basic human need, adapt and respond in situations of natural disaster and post-disaster? The state of how we live with water---with various phases ...
• #### Renormalization group theory for percolation and application to transport properties of random media ﻿

(1991)
A renormalization group method in real space is applied to the study of transport properties of random media. In particular, the method is applied to the study of the electrical properties of disordered materials and the ...
• #### Rent control simulation for Mexico City ﻿

(1993)
A model, based in the current rent control legislation, of landlord's rent setting behavior is used to simulate rents that are then compared to an actual sample of rents from Mexico City. The paper assumes that landlords ...
• #### Reoptimization in interior-point methods with application to integer programming ﻿

(1999)
This thesis examines current reoptimization techniques for interior-point methods available in the literature and studies their efficacy in a branch-and-bound framework for 0/1 mixed integer programming problems. This work ...
• #### Repackaging the inner city: Historic preservation, community development and the emergent cultural quarter in London ﻿

(2000)
I trace the transformation of two inner-city districts in London from semi-derelict industrial areas to emerging showcases of cultural enterprise, King's Cross, the site of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link terminus and ...
• #### Repetitive control of hysteretic systems using robust H-infinity controller ﻿

(2010)
Unique properties of smart materials have enabled them to successfully replace conventional actuators and sensors. However, their effectiveness and applicability in control is hindered due to the presence of inherent ...
• #### Representation and Estimation of Seismic Sources via Multipoles ﻿

(2017-04-17)
Accurate representation and estimation of seismic sources are essential to the seismic inversion problem. General sources can be approximated by a truncated series of multipoles depending on the source anisotropy. Most ...
• #### Representation and synthesis of random fields: ARMA, Galerkin, and wavelet procedures ﻿

(1996)
The dissertation considers methods of representation and synthesis of random fields and examines variance reduction techniques in conjunction with reliability analysis of engineering systems. The dissertation presents new ...
• #### Representation d'une " neo-humanite " chez Maurice Dantec, Michel Houellebecq et Jean-Christophe Rufin ﻿

(2012)
In this dissertation, we first propose to look at science-fiction as literary genre and consider the forefathers of Francophone science-fiction, determine the role of the twenty-first century writer and the role of literature ...
• #### 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 on Dynamics and Thermodynamics near Quantum Critical Points ﻿

(2014-08-15)
Quantum phase transition arises in general as second order phase transition at zero temperature, tuned by a non-thermal parameter such as pressure, doping or a magnetic field. The point in the phase diagram of the material ...
• #### 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 ...
