Oligomers -- Structure -- Mathematical models. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Medical Term: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Biomolecular.
Protein complexes play vital roles in the fundamental processes of life. In particular, homo-oligomers are involved in cell signaling, regulation, and transport. To make detailed studies of these symmetric proteins, they need to be discovered, and...
An interval order is an ordered set whose elements are in correspondence with a collection of intervals in a linearly ordered set, with disjoint intervals ordered by their relative position. The order complex of an ordered set is the simplicial...
A new type of analytic expansion for use in stability calculations is presented and applied to the question of the stability of laminar solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation. This leads in a natural way to a model of the transition from laminar...
This thesis contains material relating to two separate subjects. The first section determines when the C*-algebra affiliated to a directed graph has continuous trace. We use groupoid methods and the focus is on producing conditions on a graph that...
In this thesis we develop a theory of Fourier analysis and fast Fourier transforms (FFTs) for finite inverse semigroups. Our results generalize results in the theory of Fourier analysis for finite groups. There is a general method for generating...
This thesis is divided into 2 parts. In the first part of the thesis, we describe a software based approach to speeding up the Magnetic Resonance Imaging modality. In the second part of the thesis, we describe Significance Tree Quantization, which...
Large-scale (12,000 liter) and small-scale (3.78 liter) field enclosure experiments were conducted to evaluate the intensity and nature of competition among the planktonic cladoceran grazers of a mesotrophic Vermont lake: Bosmina longirostris,...
Despite the availability of targeted therapies, breast cancer metastasis and recurrence remain clinically challenging problems. Understanding the function of stem cells in this disease may lead to identification of genetic pathways underlying...
Biological conversion of biomass to fuels and chemicals offers recognized benefits. The absence of systematic methodologies for scaling up such conversion is an important issue related to realizing these benefits. This thesis addresses this scale...
We associate, to each positive integer n , a Cayley graph to the group PSL(2.Î–[subscript n]). We then consider the isoperimetric numbers of these graphs. In chapter three we determine upper bounds for the isoperimetric number by a detailed...
I consider the problem of extending certain invariants of subsets of natural numbers to their equivalents for subsets of larger cardinals. The two specific questions I will address are the extension of the off-branch number [Special characters...
Nanoparticles -- Magnetic properties.;""Harmonics (Electric waves)"";""Biosensors."";""Spectrum analysis."";""Brownian motion processes.""
Magnetic nanoparticles have an increasing role in the clinical and pharmaceutical realms where their physical properties can be exploited for imaging, biological and functional sensing, control of cellular processes, therapeutics, and an array of...
During our fieldwork with real-world organizations---including those in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), network configuration management, and the electrical power grid---we repeatedly noticed that security policies and related security artifacts...
Loss of vascular smooth muscle cell function is a hallmark of vascular disease. Vascular smooth muscle cells become increasingly resistant to phenotypic modulation, apoptotic and senescent. Sirtuin 1 (SirT1) is a deactylase that regulates...
This project focuses on the development of research tools and methods that are used to study the relationship between neural activity and subsequent hemodynamic responses in the human brain. This relationship, referred to as neurovascular coupling,...
Magneto-spectroscopy is used to characterize the confinement properties of strain-induced quantum wires and dots. The wires and dots are low energy regions in an ordinary GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well that are formed when microscopic...
Snowmelt from seasonal snow covers can be significant in many environments of northern and alpine areas. Water flow and chemical transport resulting from snowmelt have been studied for an understanding of contributions to watersheds or catchments....
Infrared imaging. Image reconstruction. Optical images -- Mathematical models. Breast -- Imaging. Infrared radiation in medicine.
Finite element based reconstruction algorithms for optical property profiling in biological tissues have been developed, implemented and evaluated using simulated data and laboratory measurements obtained with near infrared continuous wave (cw) and...
Through a series of case studies, signal processing and statistical tools, analyses of dynamic sea ice processes of drift, deformation, and ice pack expansion and decay are investigated for the Weddell Sea region during 1992. Cavitating fluid (CAV)...
