• #### Race, conservative politics, and U.S. foreign policy in the postcolonial world, 1948--1968 ﻿

(2008)
This dissertation analyzes the rise of conservatism in American politics from 1948 to 1968, paying special attention to the impact of the civil rights movement and race on postwar political realignments. Unlike previous ...
• #### Radial-zoned thermal accretion disk model around black holes ﻿

(1997)
High energy astrophysics is a relatively new discipline that has witnessed tremendous advancement in the past 25 years or so with the advent of space technology, which provides the field with an indispensable observational ...

(1969)
• #### Radiation and convection heat transfer in particle-laden fluid flow ﻿

(1991)
Combined radiation, convection, and conduction heat transfer are studied in a dispersed two phase flow of gray, laminar, axisymmetric media, where both phases are radiatively participating. The radiative transfer equation ...
• #### RADIATION PRESSURE AND THE GEOCORONA (EXOSPHERES, ATMOSPHERIC ESCAPE) ﻿

(1985)
The theory of planetary exospheres is extended to incorporate solar radiation pressure in a rigorous manner, and an evaporative geocoronal prototype (classical, motionless exobase) is constructed using Liouville's theorem. ...
• #### Radiative decays of low-lying excited-state hyperons ﻿

(2000)
The quark wave-functions of the lower-lying excited-state hyperons &Lambda;(1405), &Lambda;(1385), and &Lambda;(1520) are not well understood. For example, the &Lambda;(1405) may not be a regular three-quark state but ...
• #### Radiative transfer solution with discrete wavelets in the angular domain ﻿

(2003)
Radiative heat transfer analysis requires the consideration of seven independent variables, three spatial directions, two angular directions, frequency and time. Consequently, the solution of radiative transfer problems ...
• #### Radiofrequency-induced Cellular Hyperthermia: Water-soluble Fullerene as a New Cancer Therapeutic Agent ﻿

(2014-09-08)
Due to the susceptibility of cancer to hyperthermia, abundant biomedical research is being conducted for the development of therapies using nanotechnology for noninvasive cancer hyperthermia. In this work, the water-soluble ...
• #### RADIOLARIAN BIOSTRATIGRAPHIC AND PALEOCEANOGRAPHIC STUDIES OF MONTEREY-LIKE ROCKS OF THE HUMBOLDT BASIN, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ﻿

(1987)
The middle and upper Miocene sediments of the Humboldt Basin, northern California, have been investigated for the presence of radiolarian fauna. The vast majority of the radiolaria found are cold water indicators, however ...

(1974)
• #### Raman spectroscopy of photodissociating molecules ﻿

(1995)
Dissociative Resonance Raman Spectroscopy has been used to probe the dissociation dynamics of two different molecules, dimethyl zinc and methyl mercaptan. A method for analytically describing potential energy surfaces by ...

(1974)
• #### Random observations on random observations: Sparse signal acquisition and processing ﻿

(2010)
In recent years, signal processing has come under mounting pressure to accommodate the increasingly high-dimensional raw data generated by modern sensing systems. Despite extraordinary advances in computational power, ...
• #### Random process simulation for stochastic fatigue analysis ﻿

(1988)
A simulation technique is described which directly synthesizes the extrema of a random process and is more efficient than the Gaussian simulation method. Such a technique is particularly useful in stochastic fatigue analysis ...
• #### Random vibration of simple models for reinforced concrete structures ﻿

(1988)
The dynamic response of stiffness degrading models subjected to random excitations is investigated. Monte Carlo simulation is performed to determine the effect on the response of various system parameters and to provide ...
• #### Range-separated hybrids combining a range-separated Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof functional with exact exchange and random phase approximation correlation ﻿

(2014-04-09)
Previous methods of combining a short-range density functional approximation with treatment of the long range using exact exchange and random phase approxi- mation correlation have been extended by replacing a range-separated ...
• #### Rapid prototyping of wireless communications systems ﻿

(2002)
This thesis introduces rapid prototyping methodology which overcomes important barriers in the design and implementation of digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms and systems on embedded hardware platforms, such as ...
• #### RAPID REORIENTATION OF ATTENTION IN CHILDREN WITH AND WITHOUT ATTENTION DEFICITS (COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT, HYPERACTIVITY, DISORDER) ﻿

(1986)
The ability to reorient attention rapidly in both the auditory and visual modalities was first assessed developmentally and then assessed in children diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (314.01, ...
• #### Rare gas alkali ionic excimers ﻿

(1989)
The rare gas alkali ionic excimers (RgA)$\sp+$ are investigated as possible VUV laser sources. The detection of emission from (XeRb)$\sp+$ at 165 nm using laser produced plasma soft x-ray excitation is reported. In addition ...
• #### Rare gas alkali ionic excimers ﻿

(1990)
The rare gas alkali ionic molecules are established as a new class of ionic excimers which emit in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) regime of the electromagnetic spectrum. Temporal and spectral characteristics of these species ...
