  2. Essays on the Econometric Theory of Rank Regressions

    1544bp20p?file=thumbnail
    Description: Several semiparametric estimators recently developed in the econometrics literature are based on the rank correlation between the dependent and explanatory variables. Examples include the maximum rank correlation estimator (MRC) of Han (1987), the monotone rank estimator (MR) of Cavanagh and Sherman (1998), the pairwise-difference rank estimators (PDR) of Abrevaya (2003),...

  3. Essays in Economic Theory

    Fq977v005?file=thumbnail
    Description: The main theme of this dissertation are departures from standard assumptions in economic theory, specifically, departures from the model of subjective expected utility in decision theory. Part 1 axiomatizes the robust control criterion of multiplier preferences introduced by Hansen and Sargent (2001). The axiomatization shows that the class of multiplier...

  4. QUANTIFICATION OF BIOMASS ACCUMULATION ON BUILDING SURFACES THROUGH SIMULATION OF NATURAL MODES OF DEPOSITION

    2227mp79s?file=thumbnail
    Description: Microbiological dating of a crack's age depends upon establishing a viable method of sampling biomass from surfaces. Age is based upon the hypothesis that the amount of biomass on a given crack surface is proportional to the time that has passed since the surface was exposed. Presented herein is the...

  5. Multiple Modes of Voluntary Visual Attention: Analysis of Within Test Reliability, Between Group Differences, and the Interrelationships Among Tests of Voluntary Visual Attention.

    1n79h443h?file=thumbnail
    Description: The majority of research on voluntary visual attention has focused primarily on specific attentional processes. While we know much about individual attentional abilities such as shifting attention among spatial locations, tracking multiple objects and maintaining attention for specific targets, we know little about how these attentional processes relate to one...

  6. Computational Design and Analysis of High Strength Austenitic TRIP Steels for Blast Protection Applications

    P2676v72v?file=thumbnail
    Description: Recent assessment of material property requirements for blast resistant applications, especially for the naval ship hulls, has defined the need to design steels with high stretch ductility and fragment penetration resistance, along with high strength and adequate toughness. Using a system based computational materials design approach, two series of austenitic...

  7. INSULARITE, MIGRATION ET IDENTITE AU SEIN DE LA LITTERATURE ET DU CINEMA ANTILLAIS CONTEMPORAINS

    G445cd296?file=thumbnail
    Description: My dissertation, entitled "Mobile Islands: Home, Migrancy and Identity in French Caribbean Narratives", examines the representation of home, space and migration in French-Caribbean literature and film. Using original narratives of Guadeloupean and Martinican writers and filmmakers, I demonstrate that the sociological phenomenon of mobility between the Caribbean and France has...

  8. The Extended Finite Element Method for Special Problems with Moving Interfaces

    F4752g89s?file=thumbnail
    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....

  10. 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...
