    • Leibniz’s Early Metaphysics of Body ―From 1663 to 1686― 

      Edamura, Shohei (2016-06-07)
      This dissertation aims at exploring the developmental story of the metaphysics of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716). I particularly focus upon the texts from 1663 to 1686: Leibniz wrote the Metaphysical Discussion on ...
    • A Multigrid Solver for Graph Laplacian Linear Systems on Power-Law Graphs 

      Buras, Eric (2016-05-17)
      The Laplacian matrix, L, of a graph, G, contains degree and edge information of a given network. Solving a Laplacian linear system Lx = b provides information about flow through the network, and in specific cases, how that ...
    • Narrow Line Cooling of 84Sr 

      Ding, Roger (2016-12-12)
      Laser cooling has become a powerful tool for producing quantum gases and has enabled the study of a wide range of phenomena only accessible at ultracold temperatures. This thesis will describe the implementation and ...
