• #### "C'est either que tu parles francais, c'est either que tu parles anglais": A cognitive approach to Chiac as a contact language ﻿

(2002)
This thesis concerns Chiac, a dialect of Acadian French (AF) that emerged in a small speech community of AF-English bilingual teenagers in Moncton, Canada. Syntactically and morphologically, Chiac closely resembles AF, but ...
• #### C. M. Wieland's "Die Geschichte des Agathon" (Christoph Martin Wieland) ﻿

(1993)
The first and third versions of Wieland's Die Geschichte des Agathon differ from each other in various ways. One observes differences in style, wording, chapter grouping, and other "superficial" changes. There are also ...
• #### C60 Amino Acids and Peptides ﻿

(2011)
Since the discovery of the buckyball in 1985, researchers have imagined its potential in fields ranging from materials science to medicinal chemistry. The unique size, shape and hydrophobicity of C 60 fullerene endow it ...
• #### C60 in Water: Aggregation Characterization, Reactivity and Behavior ﻿

(2007)
Industrial scale production, coupled with unique material properties, underpin rising concerns of nano-scale materials inadvertently impacting the health and function of natural systems. Fullerenes, C60 in particular, have ...
• #### Cache coherence using local knowledge ﻿

(1997)
Hiding memory latency is critical in modern machines. Typically, machines have used cache and addressed the ensuing cache coherence problem with hardware or VM-based strategies that rely on global inter-cache communication. ...
• #### CACHE MANAGEMENT BY THE COMPILER ﻿

(1982)
An ideal high performance computer includes a fast processor and a multi-million byte memory of comparable speed. Since it is currently economically infeasible to have large memories with speeds matching the processor, ...
• #### Cache management in scalable network servers ﻿

(2000)
For many users, the perceived speed of computing is increasingly dependent on the performance of network server systems, underscoring the need for high performance servers. Cost-effective scalable network servers can be ...
• #### Calcium binding site mutations of Drosophila melanogaster calmodulin ﻿

(1991)
This thesis describes: (1) the identification of the ATG start codon-containing exon of the Drosophila melanogaster calmodulin gene, and sequencing of this region and others of genomic and cDNA clones, (2) bacterial ...
• #### Calcium carbonate dissolution patterns at intermediate water depths of the tropical oceans during the Quaternary ﻿

(1994)
This study presents mineralogic and stable isotopic records generated for piston cores and Ocean Drilling Program holes recovered from intermediate water depths (500 to 2500 meters) near carbonate platforms around the ...
• #### Calculating Variant Allele Fraction of Structural Variation in Next Generation Sequencing by Maximum Likelihood ﻿

(2015-04-23)
Cancer cells are intrinsically heterogeneous. Multiple clones with their unique variants co-exist in tumor tissues. The variants include point mutations and structural variations. Point mutations, or single nucleotide ...
• #### CALCULATION OF ARGON, METHANE, AND ETHANE VIRIAL COEFFICIENTS AT LOW REDUCED TEMPERATURE BASED ON DATA OBTAINED BY ISOCHORICALLY COUPLED BURNETT EXPERIMENTS ﻿

(1972)

(1988)
We calibrated a leadglass Pb-scintillator photon detector with a positron beam of 30 GeV. The detector consisted of a segmented leadglass counter in front and a Pb-scintillator sandwich counter in the back. The response ...
• #### Calibration of a multi modular lead glass electromagnetic calorimeter ﻿

(1988)
We have studied the response of a lead glass electromagnetic shower detector by using an electron beam of 1 and 2 GeV. We present the results obtained from a study on position resolution of the detector. The stability of ...
• #### Calibration of Flush Air Data Sensing Systems Using Surrogate Modeling Techniques ﻿

(2011)
In this work the problem of calibrating Flush Air Data Sensing (FADS) has been addressed. The inverse problem of extracting freestream wind speed and angle of attack from pressure measurements has been solved. The aim of ...
• #### Calibration of the E683 main calorimeter (electromagnetic hadronic calorimeter) ﻿

(1993)
The calibration of an electromagnetic-hadronic calorimeter is discussed in the larger context of the physics goals of the experiment in which it was used. Descriptions of the experimental apparatus are given. The methods ...
• #### Calibration of the Rice magnetospheric specification and forecast model for the inner magnetosphere ﻿

(1994)
A quantitative comparison has been made between observed low-energy ($\sim$1 keV $-$ 30 keV) particle fluxes in the inner magnetosphere (r $<$ 6.6 Earth radii) and those calculated by the Rice Magnetospheric Specification ...
• #### Calibration of the STAR Time-of-Flight Detector for Particle Identification ﻿

(2011)
This thesis describes several calibrations of the Time-of-Flight (TOF) detector at the Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR). These calibrations are required to allow Particle Identification (PID) which benefits many physics ...
• #### Calibrations on semi-Riemannian manifolds ﻿

(1989)
This thesis "dualizes" Harvey and Lawson's notion of calibrated geometry on a Riemannian manifold to the semi-Riemannian category. By considering the appropriate spaces (with signature) analogous to the positive definite ...
• #### Calogero Di Liberto's "Fantasy on Cavalleria Rusticana" in the context of the Romantic opera fantasy for piano ﻿

(2006)
This study interprets the author's Fantasy for piano based on the opera Cavalleria Rusticana in the context of the operatic fantasy for piano that was a major genre in the Romantic period. The first two chapters provide ...
