A polynomial is a product of distinct cyclotomic polynomials if and only if it is a divisor over [Special characters omitted.] [x ] of xn - 1 for some positive integer n. In this thesis, we will examine two natural questions concerning the divisors...

The neurophysiological examination of auditory-object representations has focused on how early auditory cortical areas code for the spectral and temporal features of auditory objects. The goals of this dissertation was to investigate how auditory...
Arctic temperature and precipitation have been rising over recent decades, with implications for Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) mass balance, sea level rise, and thermohaline circulation via Arctic Ocean freshening. However, meteorological station data...
Studies of the structure and function of the human and non-human primate auditory system have led to the hypothesis that it is composed of dorsal and ventral processing streams that are respectively dedicated to spatial and non-spatial processing....

A pre-requisite for proper health of the cell and the organism is accurate chromosome segregation during cell division. Defects in chromosome segregation lead to aneuploidy, a hallmark of an unstable genome and a frequent attribute of cancer and...
Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a devastating neurodegenerative disease its pathogenesis is linked with cholesterol metabolism. Acyl-CoA:cholesterol acyltransferases (ACATs) are key enzymes involved in cholesterol homeostasis that catalyze the...
Chapter 1: Munchnones and mesoionic heterocycles The reactivity, regioselectivity, and synthetic applications of munchnones (1,3-oxazolium-5-olates) is a common theme which runs through Chapters 2-5. The definition, structure, and reactivity of...
The purpose of this thesis is to describe methods for detecting hidden crevasses on glaciers in Polar regions. Crevasses form in ice sheets as a result of forces imposed upon the brittle ice. The crevasses are hidden from view by bridges of soft...
The Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) is responding sensitively to climate change and its meltwater has the potential to influence global sea level. Recently, large changes in the GrIS have occurred including increased velocities of outlet glaciers and...
In this thesis, we consider several problems relating to cyclic subgroups of the group [mathematical equation]. Each element of [mathematical equation] has a unique representative in one of the two intervals [mathematical equation] and...
The Euler '-function and Carmichael -function are extremely important in modern number theory, and much work has been devoted to studying the distribution and arithmetic properties of the values of each function. One interesting unresolved question...
Polynomials. Finite fields (Algebra). Algebraic functions. Number theory.
The ring of univariate polynomials over a finite field shares many foundational arithmetic properties with the ring of rational integers. This similarity makes it possible for many problems in elementary number theory to be translated 'through the...
Proper chromosome alignment and segregation depends on the formation and maintenance of a bipolar mitotic spindle with focused poles. It has been shown that microtubules are focused at spindle poles through the combined actions of centrosomes and a...
For ordinary knots in R 3 , there are no degree one Vassiliev invariants. For virtual knots, however, the space of degree one Vassiliev invariants is infinite dimensional. We introduce a sequence of three degree one Vassiliev invariants of virtual...
Developmental prosopagnosia (DP) is a neurodevelopmental disorder defined by impaired face recognition in the absence of brain damage, low-level visual deficits, or broad cognitive problems. Behavioral and neural findings suggest different types of...
Chromosomal instability (CIN) is defined as a high rate of whole chromosome loss or gain and is a hallmark of many aneuploid solid tumors. CIN positively correlates with poor patient prognosis and chemotherapeutic resistance. The persistence of...
The main driving force behind the development of computers was the attempt to solve problems that would otherwise require a large amount of time to be solved. Despite the technological development that has made computers ubiquitous in daily lives,...
Brain mapping via EEG activation is a useful tool of basic neuroscience, and has wide clinical applications as well. The mapping is achieved by means of Event Related Potentials (ERPs), task-related changes in EEG time series. The methodology of...
