(1996-07)
Finite difference solution of the transport equation provides an efficient and accurate method for computation of 2.5D geometric acoustics amplitudes. These amplitudes can be used in simulation, migration and inversion ...
• #### 2D material integrated macroporous electrodes for Li-ion batteries ﻿

(2017)
Three-dimensionally structured architectures are known to improve the performance of electrodes used in Li ion battery systems. In addition, integration of select 2D materials into 3D structures, for enhancing both electrical ...
• #### The 2nu-SVM: A Cost-Sensitive Extension of the nu-SVM ﻿

(2005-12-01)
Standard classification algorithms aim to minimize the probability of making an incorrect classification. In many important applications, however, some kinds of errors are more important than others. In this report we ...
• #### 3-D Local Radon Power Spectra for Seismic Attribute Extraction ﻿

(1998-01-15)
In this paper we discuss a method for volume attribute extraction that is based on a new type of local Radon power spectrum. The new algorithm results in robust and geologically meaningful volume attributes, such as ...
• #### 3-D segmentation and volume estimation of radiologic images by a novel, feature driven, region growing technique ﻿

(1992)
Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging is a 3-D, multi-slice, radiological technique that acquires multiple intensities corresponding to each voxel. The transverse relaxation time, T$\sb1$, and the axial relaxation time, T$\sb2$, ...
• #### 3-Dimensional spatially organized PEG-based hydrogels for an aortic valve co-culture model ﻿

(2015)
Physiologically relevant inﾠvitro models are needed to study disease progression and to develop and screen potential therapeutic interventions for disease. Heart valve disease, in particular, has no early intervention or ...
• #### 3D bioprinting: improving in vitro models of metastasis with heterogeneous tumor microenvironments ﻿

(2017)
Even with many advances in treatment over the past decades, cancer still remains a leading cause of death worldwide. Despite the recognized relationship between metastasis and increased mortality rate, surprisingly little ...
• #### 3D Geometry Coding using Mixture Models and the Estimation Quantization Algorithm ﻿

(2002-09-01)
3D surfaces are used in applications such as animations, 3D object modeling and visualization. The geometries of such surfaces are often approximated using polygonal meshes. This thesis aims to compress 3D geometry meshes ...
• #### A 3D inﾠvitro model of patient-derived prostate cancer xenograft for controlled interrogation of inﾠvivo tumor-stromal interactions ﻿

(2016)
Patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models better represent human cancer than traditional cell lines. However, the complex in vivo environment makes it challenging to employ PDX models to investigate tumor-stromal interactions, ...
