• #### Oasis in the Wasteland: A factory for production of plastic amusement and modern convenience ﻿

(1992)
The idea of the Wasteland is a potent metaphor within architecture for urban and social decay. Le Corbusier's project for a City of Tomorrow, an idealized place of industrial production, exemplifies attempts by architects ...
• #### OASIS: A hydrogeologic database and a graphical, hypertext decision support system for groundwater contaminant modeling ﻿

(1989)
A Decision Support System is a class of computer software with information, databases, and computer models integrated together to help people solve broad, semi- structured problems. Ground water contaminant transport ...
• #### Obeying God rather than men: Protestant individualism and the empowerment of Victorian women ﻿

(2008)
This dissertation looks at Protestant individualism and the degree to which it was potentially empowering to Victorian women. By Protestant individualism, I mean a way of thinking about and speaking about the self that ...
• #### Object priming in the fusiform cortex: Exploring effects of task and visual similarity ﻿

(2010)
Neural priming for same and different exemplars and viewpoints of objects was examined in two experiments using functional magnetic resonance imaging. In line with previous studies, viewpoint- and exemplar-specific priming ...
• #### Object-oriented implementation of p-adaptive finite element method ﻿

(1999)
A finite element analysis methodology employing p-adaptivity is proposed. Object-oriented design and methodologies are used to implement the finite element package. The p-refinement phase is facilitated through the addition ...
• #### Object-oriented implementation of the Galerkin finite element method and its application to the numerical study of natural convective flows in enclosures ﻿

(1997)
Using object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and philosophies, a collection of C++ tools for the rapid development of finite element applications has been created. The Object-Oriented Finite Element Analysis (OOFEA) ...
• #### Objectifying the objective list ﻿

(2002)
The aim of the present paper is to clarify the essential features of the objective list and address consequences of this characterization. The objective list theory is frequently criticized for its rigidity and its inability ...
• #### Objective Approaches to Single-Molecule Time Series Analysis ﻿

(2013-07-24)
Single-molecule spectroscopy has provided a means to uncover pathways and heterogeneities that were previously hidden beneath the ensemble average. Such heterogeneity, however, is often obscured by the artifacts of ...
• #### Oblique collision and accretion of the Netherlands Leeward Antilles island arc: A structural analysis of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary zone ﻿

(2007)
The Netherlands Leeward Antilles volcanic island arc is an ideal natural laboratory to study the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary. The Leeward Antilles islands (Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire) are ...
• #### Oblique-incidence fiber-optic reflectometry for measuring absorption and scattering in turbid media ﻿

(1997)
Oblique-incidence, fiber-optic reflectometry is a simple and accurate method for measuring the absorption and reduced scattering coefficients, $\mu\sb{a}$ and $\mu\sb{s}\sp\prime ,$ of semi-infinite turbid media. Obliquely ...

(1973)
• #### Observation of jet photoproduction and comparison to Monte Carlo simulation ﻿

(1994)
The photon is the carrier of the electromagnetic force. However in addition to its well known nature, the theories of QCD and quantum mechanics would indicate that the photon can also for brief periods of time split into ...
• #### Observational analysis of the compositional variation in solar filaments ﻿

(2007)
Solar filaments have long been associated with coronal mass ejections and Space Weather phenomena. Filaments are dynamcal, and changes in their overall mass or its distribution could trigger an eruption. However, a ...
• #### Observational and theoretical interpretation of energetic particle transport in solar flares ﻿

(2008)
The combination of excellent space-based remote sensing, and image reconstruction techniques, as well as improvements in numerical modeling, help enhance our understanding of particle transport in solar flares. We conduct ...

(1973)
• #### Observations of dayside magnetopause oscillations and concurrent temporal variations in cusp precipitation ﻿

(1999)
On April 13, 1996, while Russia's Interball Tail spacecraft was travelling through the dayside magnetosheath, NASA's Polar spacecraft traversed the northern cusp. Transients observed in the data from the Interball Tail/SCA-1 ...
• #### Observations of magnetic signatures and structure in the dayside ionosphere of Venus ﻿

(1993)
Present models of the Venus solar wind interaction do not allow for changes in the orientation of the field as you approach the planet. Analysis of high resolution magnetic field data from the Pioneer Venus Orbiter spacecraft ...

(1974)

(1976)
• #### Obstructions to the Concordance of Satellite Knots ﻿

(2012-09-05)
Formulas which derive common concordance invariants for satellite knots tend to lose information regarding the axis a of the satellite operation R(a,J). The Alexander polynomial, the Blanchfield linking form, and Casson-Gordon ...
