• #### A comparison of three methods used to determine functionally important protein residues ﻿

(2003)
A new method for determining functionally important protein residues is analyzed and compared with two previously existing methods. This thesis presents the analysis of several different protein sequences and shows how the ...

(1974)
• #### A compilation and study of twentieth-century double bass solos from the orchestral literature ﻿

(2001)
The purpose of this document is to identify in the twentieth-century orchestral literature, noteworthy solos written for the double bass. Each solo is examined from a variety of viewpoints, including: its musical context ...

(1966)
• #### A comprehensive ab initio study of gallium and arsenic containing molecules ﻿

(1992)
Theoretical calculations for the ground states of arsine (AsH$\sb3$), trimethylgallium (TMG) (Ga(CH$\sb3$)$\sb3$), the arsine$\cdot$TMG adduct, gallane (GaH$\sb3$), the gallane$\cdot$arsine adduct, small Ga$\sb{x}$As$\sb{y}$ ...
• #### A comprehensive approach to spatial and spatiotemporal dependence modeling ﻿

(2000)
One of the most difficult tasks of modeling spatial and spatiotemporal random fields is that of deriving an accurate representation of the dependence structure. In practice, the researcher is faced with selecting the best ...
• #### A comprehensive study of urban gaseous and particulate air pollution in Houston, Texas: Source apportionment and the emissions inventory assessment ﻿

(2006)
Ground-level ozone is of a growing concern in many areas of the United States. Ozone is a significant health concern, particularly for people with asthma and other respiratory diseases. Ozone is rarely emitted directly ...
• #### A Compressive Phase-Locked Loop ﻿

(2011)
We develop a new method for tracking narrowband signals acquired through compressive sensing, called the compressive sensing phase-locked loop (CS-PLL). The CS-PLL enables one to track oscillating signals in very large ...
• #### A Computational Analysis of Novel Non-circular Nozzles ﻿

(2014-04-24)
This thesis presents a computational analysis for determining the flow properties of novel non-circular nozzles. In last few decades, non-circular nozzles have been investigated intensively due to their remarkably superior ...
• #### A computational analysis on an initial application of a Hemiwedge based sub-surface safety valve for use in ultra-deepwater oil wells and extreme high pressure, high temperature environments ﻿

(2010)
This study proposes and validates computationally the effectiveness of a novel, hemiwedge model for a sub-surface safety valve (SSSV). With the growing needs in the oil industry and new finds of ultra-deepwater reservoirs ...
• #### A computational investigation of solar energetic particle trajectories in model magnetospheres ﻿

(1999)
This work studies the dynamic behavior of solar energetic particles (SEPs, defined as protons and electrons with energies of 1 MeV to 1 GeV) by simulating their motion in model electromagnetic fields. Because of the hazards ...
• #### A computational method for constructing Sylvester-style sparse resultants ﻿

(2005)
We present a computational approach for constructing Sylvester style resultants for sparse systems of bivariate polynomial equations. Necessary and sufficient conditions are derived which guarantee that a multiplying set ...
• #### A Computational Model of Jetliner Taxiing ﻿

(2012)
The Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) is transforming the way planes move on the ground as well as in the sky. Some of the proposed changes, such as automated scheduling algorithms to generate taxi ...
• #### A computational model of routine procedural memory ﻿

(2009)
Cooper and Shallice (2000) implemented a computational version of the Norman and Shallice's (1986) Contention Scheduling Model (CSM). The CSM is a hierarchically organized network of action schemas and goals. Botvinick and ...
• #### A computational study of vehicle routing applications ﻿

(1999)
This thesis examines three specific routing applications. In the first model, the scheduling of home health care providers from their homes, to a set of patients, and then back to their respective homes, is performed both ...

(1964)
• #### A computer-aided Markovian model of the design process ﻿

(1972)
This thesis is based on the hypothesis that design problems are conflicting situations of social systems which, as open systems, exist at a steady-state. The process by which these systems reach steady-states is described ...
• #### A computer-based tutor for engineering design ﻿

(2000)
Modern computer technology facilitates development of rich learning environments that can enhance a student's ability to learn; however, none of the existing educational software systems can support the drill-and-practice ...
• #### A concept of home for the modern urban stranger ﻿

(1994)
The issues of domesticity in the contemporary urban realm will be examined in the following manner. I will first investigate the implications of what it means for a 'table' and 'chair' to exist in a space both physically ...
• #### A connectionist approach to autonomous robotic navigation ﻿

(1991)
Robotic navigation has been an area of intense research since the onset of mobile robot development. The usefulness of mobile robots ultimately reside in their ability to move and interact with the environment. Current ...
