• #### Alternative scales for extensive measurement: Combining operations and conventionalism ﻿

(1993)
This thesis concerns alternative concatenating operations in extensive measurements and the degree to which concatenating operations are matter of convention. My arguments are directed against Ellis' claim that what prevents ...
• #### Alternative spatial frameworks in high-density housing ﻿

(2002)
My thesis is an investigation of alternative spatial frameworks in high-density housing. My thesis proposes that ordinary dwellings can be transformed into extra-ordinary space through the use of spatial frameworks. I ...
• #### Alternative work arrangements: The effects of distance and media use on the supervisor-subordinate relationship ﻿

(1996)
With the introduction of advanced information technologies, organizations are able to work in many new arrangements which impact the way groups and individuals interact. This research examined the effects of working at a ...

(1996)
Butadiene is a normal deleterious contaminant that must be removed from C$\sb4$-olefin streams before being used in several industrial applications. While this impurity is substantially eliminated by selective catalytic ...
• #### Aluminum and gallium chloride stabilized arene-mercury complexes ﻿

(2001)
Reaction of HgCl2 with two equivalents of MCl3 in an aromatic solvent yields Hg(arene)2(MCl4) 2 where arene = C6H5Me, C6H5Et, o-C6H4Me2, C6H3 -1,2,3-Me3, M = Al, Ga. Reaction of HgCl2 with MCl3 in benzene, m-xylene, and ...
• #### Ambiguous and fragmentary notation in Mozart's Piano Concerto in C minor, K.491: A survey of possible solutions for interpretation and completion ﻿

(2001)
Numerous problems for the performer of Mozart's Piano Concerto in C minor have been encountered through the examination of the manuscript autograph, editions, and recordings. Although the autograph and various editions ...
