  1. Essays in Empirical Auctions and Partially Identified Econometric Models

    H702q6560?file=thumbnail
    Description: Chapter 1: (Bounds on the Counterfactual Revenue Distributions in Auctions with Reserve Prices) In first-price auctions with interdependent bidder values, the distributions of private signals and values cannot be uniquely recovered from bids in Bayesian Nash equilibria. Non-identification invalidates structural analyses that rely on exact identification of the model primitives....

  2. Large Scale Complex Protein Synthesis Networks: Modeling and Analysis of Translation Elongation Behavior

    5425k982m?file=thumbnail
    Description: The genetic information in DNA is transcribed to mRNA and then translated to proteins, which form the building blocks of life. Translation, or protein synthesis, is hence a central cellular process. Decades of experimentation have elucidated a vast wealth of molecular information about discrete translation steps, but the sheer complexity...

  4. Radio ways: Society, locality, and FM technology in Koutiala, Mali

    1g05fb77m?file=thumbnail
    Description: This study in media anthropology uses participant observation, interviews, questionnaires, and recorded broadcasts to analyze how people use FM radio technology in the Koutiala area of southeast Mali, and particularly how they use FM radio to produce locality by relating audience members to one another, to the dominant national culture,...

  5. The Effects of a Behavioral Weight-Loss Intervention on Barriers to Physical Activity in Obese African-American Wome

    Pk02c993w?file=thumbnail
    Description: Background: More than 81 percent of African-American women are overweight or obese. In addition to being heavier than Whites, African-Americans have a harder time losing weight and are less likely to engage in physical activity. A growing body of literature suggests several barriers to physical activity that prevent African-American women...

  6. Mechanisms regulating astrogliosis and functional recovery following spinal cord injury

    Rb68xc071?file=thumbnail
    Description: The studies in this thesis are directed towards defining the signaling mechanisms that regulate astrogliosis after SCI and towards developing potential therapeutic techniques for modifying this process. The central hypothesis is that alteration of the extracellular milieu after SCI can limit the deleterious effects of glial scar formation and enhance...

  7. Optical Switching via Quantum Interference Effects in a Multilevel Atomic System

    R494vk31b?file=thumbnail
    Description: All-optical switches have far reaching applications in both quantum and classical information processing. Most current all-optical switches depend on intense interactions between light and nonlinear media which may be extremely inefficient. The need for high switching beam powers have prevented all-optical switching from being very useful in most applications. Our...

    Description: Problems involving irregularly shaped domains or embedded interfaces occur in a wide range of mathematical models. These include models in computational biology, fluid mechanics, and solidification. Numerical solutions for this type of problem can be difficult to obtain, and therefore a variety of methods have been devised to solve them....
