An abstract analysis of differential semblance optimization
Differential Semblance Optimization (DSO) is a novel way of approaching a class of inverse problems arising in exploration seismology. The promising feature of the DSO method is that it replaces a nonsmooth, highly nonconvex ...
Role oflac repressor hinge region and operator DNA sequence in complex formation
A study of the lac repressor hinge region was undertaken to decipher its role in the function of DNA binding and communication between binding sites within the protein. Specific mutations were designed, and the proteins ...
Investigations of CVD diamond-growth mechanisms using computer techniques: A. Equilibrium calculation program TEQWORKS. B. Molecular mechanism program MM3
Equilibrium concentrations of the major species in conventional and halogen assisted CVD diamond synthesis systems were calculated and the results are presented in this thesis. The optimal diamond deposition conditions ...
Photocycloaddition of quinones to olefins: Mechanism and applications
Photochemical reactions between benzoquinones and alkylidenecyclohexanes proceed regioselectively. Regioselectivity is determined by the conformational properties of the cyclic olefin. Photocycloadducts thus obtained may ...
Stress as a means to enhance secondary metabolite productivity and to probe metabolic pathways
The objectives of this research were to study metabolic pathways in C. roseus hairy root cultures, and to enhance secondary metabolite productivity using fungal elicitation as the technique. The effects of age of inoculum ...
On a transmission inverse problem
In crosswell seismic experiments, seismic sources are fired in one well, and the wave-fields generated are measured in another well. The goal of the crosswell seismology is to find physical parameters, especially the ...
