  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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),...

  7. E. coli RNA helicase DbpA and its role in assembly of the large subunit of the ribosome

    Q524jn89x?file=thumbnail
    Description: Assembly of the large and small subunits of the <em>E. coli</em> ribosome is a complicated process that involves transcription, processing, and modifying of the ribosomal RNA, the binding of ribosomal proteins, and the folding of the particles into complex structures. A number of ribosome assembly factors, including maturation factors, GTPases,...

  8. Authority, Quotation, and Collective Composition in 20th and 21st Century U.S. Theatre and Drama

    08612n687?file=thumbnail
    Description: My dissertation argues that certain continuities among U.S. theatre collectives in the 20th and 21st centuries have gone unnoticed largely because the aesthetics and politics of these companies are seemingly so unrelated. These continuities, which connect the 1960s' anarcho-pacifist spectacles of the Living Theatre to the contemporary "community" theatre of...

    Description: Saccades are rapid eye movements that bring visual images into focus by placing them on the fovea. The control of accurate and precise saccades is essential for normal visual perception of the world around us. Disruptions in saccade production are the hallmark of several neurological disorders such as schizophrenia and...

  10. Analysis of Latent Membrane Protein (LMP) 2A Signaling Through Src Family Kinases and the Role of LMP2B in Modulating LMP2A Signaling

    Vx021f260?file=thumbnail
    Description: Latent membrane protein 2A (LMP2A) and LMP2B are viral proteins expressed during Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) latency in EBV-infected B cells both in cell culture and in vivo. Although Lyn has been shown to be important in mediating LMP2A signaling, it is still unclear if Lyn is used preferentially or if...
