    • Sampling biomolecular conformations with spatial and energetic constraints 

      Shehu, Amarda (2005)
      This work extends cyclic coordinate descent to efficiently satisfy multiple spatial constraints, respect the secondary structure of proteins., and work with reduced backbone protein models. Reduced models allow us to treat ...
    • Sampling Techniques for Boolean Satisfiability 

      Meel, Kuldeep (2014-04-24)
      Boolean satisfiability (SAT) has played a key role in diverse areas spanning testing, formal verification, planning, optimization, inferencing and the like. Apart from the classical problem of checking boolean satisfiability, ...

      The first fifteen years of Texas statehood were pivotal in the development of San Antonio. Contemporary chroniclers vividly show how the city grew between 1846 and 1861 from an ancient, crumbling Mexican village to a large, ...
    • Sapling growth and recruitment as affected by flooding and canopy gap formation in a river floodplain forest in southeast Texas 

      Hall, Rosine Blount Wilson (1993)
      I used sapling population data collected since 1980 to investigate how canopy disturbance interacts with chronic understory disturbance to determine regeneration patterns. I reconstructed flooding history using a combination ...
    • Sarpedon's feast: A Homeric key to Chaucer's "Troilus and Criseyde" 

      Bradley, Ann (1995)
      Chaucer's insistence on the name of Sarpedon signals the importance of the Iliad, with its treatment both of the hero and the theme of necessity, for the development of his Troilus. Chaucer's access to the Iliad was second ...
    • Sarshaothar

      Sarshaothar (pronounced sar-show-thar) is a Gaelic word meaning masterpiece. Music composition follows a long practiced tradition of the master-apprentice system. When an apprentice wished to become a practicing professional, ...
    • Saturation effects in photoassociation spectroscopy of strontium-86 

      Mickelson, Pascal Gerry (2006)
      This work describes intensity saturation of photoassociative transitions of 86Sr at the quantum mechanical unitarity limit. The saturation behavior, which results in a roll-over of the photoassociation rate for intensities ...
    • Satyrica signa: A Campana relief from the Via Gabina Villa at Site 10 (Italy) 

      Williams, Cornelia C. (1989)
      This thesis considers one Campana relief fragment, depicting two satyrs looking into a basin with a lion's head above and between them, found at the Site 10 Roman villa, and explores its form, meaning and context. Comparisons ...
    • SAUSSURE'S AND DERRIDA'S ANTI-METAPHYSICS: A READING OF PLATO'S "CRATYLUS" 

      CARLISLE, JEAN LATHAM (1987)
      The theory of language articulated in Plato's Cratylus anticipates many of the points of the contemporary language theories in the work of Ferdinand de Saussure and Jacques Derrida. The Cratylus is the only dialogue in the ...
    • Saving Galveston: A history of the Galveston Historical Foundation 

      Schmidt, Sally Anne (2009)
      The history of the Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF) reveals how innovative Galvestonians looked to the past to create a future for their distressed city and inspired the development of one of the nation's leading local ...
    • Saying and unsaying mysticism: The problem of defining mysticism in the social sciences 

      Fitzpatrick, Sean Joseph (2000)
      The use of "mysticism" and "mystic" as analytical terms in the social sciences is found to be problematic. Through an overview of current attempts to define the terms and a discussion of the use of the terms by representative ...
