Synthesis, characterization and magnetic property studies of copper-based phosphate and silicate compounds containing nanosize transition metal oxide frameworks
The search for novel compounds with nanosize transition metal oxide frameworks is important for the study and understanding of materials with interesting and important magnetic and electronic properties. These low-dimensional ...
Interprocedural pointer analysis for C
Many powerful code optimization techniques rely on accurate information connecting the definitions and uses of values in a program. This information is difficult to produce for programs written with pointer-based languages ...

When Methodists first arrived in the South, they were critics of the social order. They preached in public against slavery and counselled in private against slaveholding. They condemned the code of honor and supported pious ...
Energy minimizers, gradient flow solutions, and computational investigations in the theory of biharmonic maps
We present the definitions, derive the relevant Euler-Lagrange equations, and establish various properties concerning biharmonic maps. We investigate several classes of examples exhibiting singular behavior. Existence of ...
Sapling growth and recruitment as affected by flooding and canopy gap formation in a river floodplain forest in southeast Texas
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 ...
Synthetic studies towards the total synthesis of discorhabdin C
Two synthetic approaches towards the total synthesis of discorhabdin C (3) are described. The general strategy for construction of azacarbocyclic spiro dienone system is to employ an intramolecular para-phenolic alkylation ...
Inch Ka Chka and other paradoxical clues into Soviet Armenian society
During the twentieth century, Soviet Armenian society has been witness to numerous situations in which national identity has become an expression of cultural paradox. From the 1940's to the 1990's, Armenia has been in a ...
