"In Maiden Meditation": Readership and the Victorian Girl
My project argues that a private, autodidactic model of girls' readership is challenged within mid-Victorian culture, as formal education for girls became more accepted and itself underwent reform. While discourses of ...
The Presbyterian Church in the Confederate States of America
Many works have been written about the Civil War. While many of these books have contributed much to the knowledge of this war, some areas have received less attention than they merit. One such topic is the interrelation ...
THE LUNAR EXOSPHERE
Carbon Nanomaterials for Fibers, Photonics and Composites
This thesis investigates various carbon nanomaterials from the basic synthesis to the characterizations and applications in fibers, photonics and composites. The carbon nanomaterials we studied include graphene, graphene ...
Resonant Compton Scattering in Highly-Magnetized Pulsars
Soft gamma repeaters and anomalous X-ray pulsars are subset of slow-rotating neutron stars, known as magnetars, that have extremely high inferred surface magnetic fields, of the order 100-1000 TeraGauss. Hard, non-thermal ...
The structure and sequence of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
The work described involves the isolation and characterization of the gene encoding the calmodulin protein in the dipteran species, Drosophila melanogaster. The two major protein coding exons, designated 2 and 3, had been ...
Molecular modeling the microstructure and thermodynamic properties of complex fluids
The accurate prediction of a complex fluid's equilibrium microstructure and corresponding thermodynamic properties relies on the capability to describe both the molecular level architecture and specific governing physics. ...
Analysis and interpretation of gamma-ray burst continuum spectral evolution with BATSE data
Once a day, a flash of gamma-rays erupts somewhere in space and is detected by an international fleet of satellites. Since their first detection over a quarter century ago, these gamma-ray bursts have puzzled researchers ...
Energy levels in light nuclei
The recent application of the shell model theory to the energy level structure of light nuclei has made apparent a lack of experimental data concerning these nuclei. The impossibility of accurately criticizing the theory ...
The Spectrum of the Off-diagonal Fibonacci Operator
The family of off-diagonal Fibonacci operators can be considered as Jacobi matrices acting in .e2(Z) with diagonal entries zero and off-diagonal entries given by sequences in the hull of the Fibonacci substitution sequence. ...
