Lithostratigraphic and depositional framework, near-surface Upper Pennsylvanian and Lower Permian strata, southern Brazos Valley, North-central Texas.
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 ...
Islam, sex, and sect: a quantitative look at women's rights in the Middle East.
In this paper I analyze Islamic Social Attitudes Survey (ISAS) data to see the effects of religious tradition and religious practice on attitudes about women’s rights among 1139 college students in Kuwait. Specifically, ...
Oscillating satellites about the straight line equilibrium points.
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 ...
Spectral approach to transport problems in two-dimensional disordered lattices : physical interpretation and applications.
This paper introduces the spectral approach to transport problems in infinite disordered systems characterized by an Anderson-type Hamiltonian. The spectral approach determines (with probability 1) the existence of extended ...
Cavity ring down and thermal lens techniques applied to vibrational spectroscopy of gases and liquids.
Infrared (IR) and near-infrared (NIR) region gas temperature sensors have been used in the past because of its non-intrusive character and fast time response. In this dissertation cavity ring down (CRD) absorption of oxygen ...
A short allowance of hides.
This novella tells the story of an ill-starred fraternity blowout named after the infamous Donner Party tragedy of 1846-47. A frame narrative relayed years after the fact by a playfully unreliable yet ultimately empathetic ...
Characterization of the single photon initiated dissociative rearrangement reaction (SPIDRR) technique and its application in the study of transition metal cation bound organic cluster reactions.
The study of gas-phase ion-molecule reactions has been influential in the investigation of transition metal mediated bond activation and catalysis. This research has recently been advanced by a new method designated the ...
Adaptive designs for phase II clinical trials with binary endpoints.
Because the sample size is varying while the estimate of sample size is changing, the quality of an approximation of the binomial by the Gaussian is variable and thus not desirable. Also, adaptive designs do not follow the ...
Boundary data smoothness for solutions of nonlocal boundary value problems for nth order differential equations.
The method involves application of Peano's Theorem for initial value problems.
