    • Nonlinear mode coupling and internal resonance observed in a dusty plasma 

      Ding, Zhiyue; Qiao, Ke; Ernst, N.; Kong, Jie; Chen, M.; Matthews, L.S.; Hyde, T. W. (New Journal of Physics, 209-10)
      In this paper, we report the first experimental observation of internal resonance in a dusty plasma, which shows the intrinsic nonlinearities of dust interactions in plasmas. When driving a system of vertically aligned ...

    • Oscillating satellites about the straight line equilibrium points. 

      Clayton, Robert Lee (1952)
      The problem as studied in this thesis is the behavior of a satellite at the three equilibrium points. When a satellite is displaced from rest at one of these points it will either oscillate or rapidly leave the system. The ...

      Seals, Mary J. (1965)
      The purpose of this study was to interpret the depositional framework of the original Cisco Group, Upper Pennsylvanian and Lower Permian, in the shallow subsurface of North-central Texas, Stratigraphic interpretation was ...
    • Descant. 

      King, Carliss. (1983-05)
    • Land acquisition in Coryell County, Texas, for the formation of Camp Hood, 1942-45 : a civilian perspective. 

      Edwards, Sylvia Ann. (1988-05)
      This thesis examines the acquisition of land in Coryell County, Texas, for the formation of Camp Hood during the years 1942 through 1945. It focuses on the effects that event produced on property owners who surrendered ...
    • 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 Swint.; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (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 ...
    • Charged Grains In Saturn's F-Ring: Interaction With Saturn's Magnetic Field 

      Matthews, Lorin Swint.; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (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 ...
    • Digital Imaging and Analysis of Dusty Plasmas 

      Boesse, Carolyn M.; Henry, Michael; Hyde, Truell Wayne.; Matthews, Lorin Swint. (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 ...
    • Effect of the Charge-Dipole Interaction on the Coagulation of Fractal Aggregates 

      Matthews, Lorin Swint.; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (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 ...
    • A model of coagulation in dust clouds during grain charging 

      Barge, Laura; Matthews, Lorin Swint.; Hyde, Truell Wayne. (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 ...
