      Williams, Earl Francis (1941-07)
      This thesis has been written for those who love Baylor University and wish to know the rich history of the "grand old school." The purpose has been to show the development of the institution from its beginning in the days ...
    • Applications of full rank factorization to solving matrix equations 

      Sykes, Jeffery D. (1992-12)
      In the study of matrices, we are always searching for tools which allow us to simplify our investigations. Because full rank factorizations exist for all matrices and their properties often help to simplify arguments, their ...
    • Gravitoelectrodynamics of Charged Grains in Saturn's F Ring: Encounters with Prometheus and Pandora 

      Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Journal of Physics A, 2003-09-12)
      The dynamics of Saturn's F ring have been a matter of curiosity ever since Voyagers 1 and 2 sent back pictures of the ring's unusual features. Some of these images showed three distinct ringlets with the outer two displaying ...
    • Finite coulomb crystal formation 

      Vasut, John; Hyde, Truell; Barge, Laura (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
      Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those found in planetary rings or comets, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of the inter-particle potential energy to average kinetic energy is large ...
    • Effect of the Charge-Dipole Interaction on the Coagulation of Fractal Aggregates 

      Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, 2004)
      A numerical model with broad applications to complex (dusty) plasmas is presented. The self-consistent N-body code allows simulation of the coagulation of fractal aggregates, including the charge-dipole interaction of the ...
    • Dusty Plasma Correlation Function Experiment 

      Smith, Bernard; Vasut, John; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell; Reay, Jerry; Cook, Mike; Schmoke, Jimmy (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
      Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those in protostellar clouds, planetary rings or cometary environments, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of the inter-particle potential energy to ...
    • Digital Imaging and Analysis of Dusty Plasmas 

      Boesse, Carolyn; Henry, Michael; Hyde, Truell; Matthews, Lorin (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
      Dust particles immersed within a plasma environment, such as those found in planetary rings or cometary environments, will acquire an electric charge. If the ratio of interparticle potential energy to average kinetic energy ...
    • A model of coagulation in dust clouds during grain charging 

      Barge, Laura; Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
      Initially uncharged grains in space and laboratory plasma environments become charged due to currents driven by potential differences in the dusty plasma. Certain macroscopic effects such as coagulation of smaller grains ...
    • Charged Grains In Saturn's F-Ring: Interaction With Saturn's Magnetic Field 

      Matthews, Lorin; Hyde, Truell (Advances in Space Research, 2004)
      Saturn’s dynamic F-Ring still presents a challenge for understanding and explaining the kinematic processes that lead to the changing structure visible in our observations of this ring. This study examines the effect of ...
    • Periphyton-nutrient dynamics in a gradient-dominated freshwater marsh ecosystem. 

      Scott, J. Thad (Jefferson Thad). (Wilmington, N.C : Society of Wetland ScientistsOldendorf/Luhe, Germany : Inter-Research, 2005)
      In this study, the factors influencing the development of a nutrient availability gradient in a wetland ecosystem and the subsequent controls to, and feedbacks from, the structure and function of the periphyton community ...
    • Phytoplankton growth model for a turbid pulsed aquatic ecosystem. 

      Umorin, Mikhail Pavlovich. (2005)
      The objective of this study was to develop a computer simulation that successfully predicted chlorophyll-a dynamics in Lake Waco. A small-scale batch culture was used to elucidate intrinsic growth rate and how it was ...
    • Existence of positive solutions to singular right focal boundary value problems. 

      Maroun, Mariette. (Orlando, FL : International Publications., 2005-05)
      In this dissetation, we seek positive solutions for the n^th order ordinary differential equation, y^(n)=f(x,y), satisfying the right focal boundary conditions, y^(i)(0)=y^(n-2)(p)=y^(n-1)(1)=0, i=0,...,n-3, where p is a ...
