Understanding how the brain works remains one of the toughest problems in science, despite the progress in scientific technology available for its study. The difficulty lies in the fact that the brain is a dynamic system, while the body of facts...
A double-acceleration stage linear time of flight mass spectrometer (TOF MS) with Nd/YAG laser ablation cluster source was designed and constructed for cluster production, study and deposition. Cumulenic polycarbons SC n S ( n = 2-27) were...
Magnetoencephalography -- Technique.; Magnetic susceptibility.
The measurement of human brain function is the goal of many noninvasive medical imaging modalities. Two sources of physiological contrast are commonly targeted to achieve this goal. The most direct approach to measuring neuronal activity is with...
Production of fuel ethanol from cellulosic materials is a potentially attractive way to meet sustainability, energy security, and environmental goals. However, the high cost of processing using current technology has thus far prevented...
Multimodality imaging is becoming the standard of care for research and clinical studies. Such an approach is able to provide complementary information which can detect and characterize tumors. Advancing instrumentation for diffuse near-infrared...

Over the past decade, a pair of instructions called load-linked (LL) and store-conditional (SC) have emerged as the most suitable synchronization instructions for the design of lock-free algorithms. However, current architectures do not support...
Coding theory. Characters of groups. Error-correcting codes (Information theory). Polynomials.
We introduce vector-valued character theory, a higher dimensional generalization of character theory. We then use vector-valued characters to extend the MacWilliams equivalence theorem for linear codes to a class of additive codes, called...
In the late 1960s, Ihara began work that led to the Ihara zeta function, a zeta function which is defined on a finite graph. This function is an interesting graph invariant which gives information on expansion properties of the graph. It also...
The thermodynamic properties of pure polymers and polymer mixtures have been investigated using the so-called Born-Green-Yvon (BGY) lattice theory. Previous results applied pure component pressure-volume-temperature ( PVT ) data in order to...
In this work we investigate the quantum dynamics of three different configurations of nonlinear cavity systems. We begin by carrying out a quantum analysis of a dc superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) mechanical displacement detector...
Large scale systems -- Mathematical models. Digital computer simulation. Parallel processing (Electronic computers). Computer algorithms.
Modeling real-world large-scale systems is inherently challenging due to their size and complexity. Detailed simulation of large-scale models requires tremendous amounts of computing power and memory space. Parallel discrete-event simulation...
This thesis considers the two special sensor networks for future sensor network design: mobile sensor networks and hybrid network of sensors and robots. To investigate two types of networks, we abstract two most important aspects that are ingrained...
Accurate chromosome segregation in human oocytes requires that meiotic sister chromatid cohesion remain intact for decades and work in model organisms indicates that deterioration of meiotic cohesion over time may be a major determinant of...
