In a variety of applications spanning mobile devices, performance computing, and even renewable energy and automotive, power management and power delivery are an increasing bottleneck in reducing size and cost, improving reliability, and even...
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...

Computer input-output equipment. ; Computational grids (Computer systems). ; High performance computing. ; Electronic data processing -- Distributed processing.
High-performance computing increasingly occurs on computational grids composed of heterogeneous and geographically distributed systems of computers, networks, and storage devices that collectively act as a single virtual computer. A key challenge...
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...
In the past decade, the use of ordinal patterns in the analysis of time series and dynamical systems has become an important tool. Ordinal patterns (otherwise known as a permutation patterns) are found in time series by taking n data points at...
The new APM South Equatorial Strip Catalog $({-}17\sp\circ.5<\delta<2\sp\circ.5)$ is used to select a sample of early-type galaxies in three directions: (1) 15h10-16h10; (2) 20h30-21h50; (3) 00h10-01h30. The distances and peculiar motions of...
Recent technological advances have fostered the emergence of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), which consist of tiny, wireless, battery-powered nodes that are expected to revolutionize the ways in which we understand and construct complex physical...
Let K be the function field over a finite field of odd order, and let H be a definite quaternion algebra over K. If Î‘ is an order of level M in H , we define theta series for each ideal I of Î‘ using the reduced norm on H. Using harmonic analysis...
Non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS) are a family of enzymes that assemble a variety of pharmacologically interesting polypeptides from canonical and non-canonical amino acids. The identity and connectivity of the monomers in the final product...
Kynurenic acid (KYNA) is produced and released by astrocytes, and acts as an Î±7-nicotinic acetylcholine receptor antagonist (at lower, physiological concentrations) and an antagonist of the glycine site of the NMDA receptor (at higher,...

Juvenile, stream-dwelling salmon are a model system for studies of density dependence. However, while salmon exhibit diverse mechanisms and patterns of density dependence, the factors that drive variation in density dependence are not clear. I used...
