Recent Submissions Clermont, Kristen Renee Virginia Tech, Parasitic weeds of the family Orobanchaceae attach to the roots of host plants via haustoria capable of drawing nutrients from host vascular tissue. Species in this family span the spectrum of host nutrient dependency, Beginning in the late s and continuing into the two decades following,
Tatari, Milad Tunable dry adhesion has Electronic theses and dissertations system applications, including microtransfer printing, climbing robots, pick and place robots and gripping in manufacturing processes.
This study investigates a new type of tunable adhesion Lawrence, Brendan Wayne The objective of this research was to investigate the role of land cover changes through time in influencing spatial variability of the surface urban heat island of the metropolitan area of Reno-Sparks, Nevada.
Gao, Lan Cumulus clouds are generally optically thick and shallow, exerting a net cooling impact on the climate system. Changes in atmospheric aerosol conditions, especially aerosol concentration increased by anthropogenic activity, Pandey, Nishan NASA space systems have continuously experienced evolution in different aspects of the technologies used for the overall mission goal.
To keep up with the increased capability and performance of the systems used, there is Chomos, Julianna Christine Undesirable and avoidable outcomes are often the result of several parties acting together with each sharing some of the responsibility, blame. Le, Vinh Dac Often times as an environmental research project grows, technical aspects such as system scalability, data exposure, and third-party application support are overlooked.
This is largely due to researchers not possessing the Boamah-Addo, Kwame This thesis concerns discrete probability distributions with power-law tailbehavior. Discrete power-law distributions are reviewed together withtheir truncated versions.
The Zipf distribution Zipf, is then focusedon Nordmeier, Senny Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women.
Majority of these deaths are due to metastasis, proving that there is a great demand to understanding the mechanisms Mamyan, Marta This study explores the impact of institutional factors that facilitate the likelihood of starting social enterprises.
Based on the GEM data set, we investigate the effect of economic development, government effectiveness, Merrick, Dylan AbstractThis thesis research project is an attempt to understand the nature, sources, dynamics, and contradictions of the Tunisian Revolution of Contained within the thesis are seven chapters, each outlining Dhakal, Suresh Many advanced construction materials such as ultra-high performance concrete UHPChigh strength steel rebars, and larger prestressing strands have been developed and their use is ever growing.
Shrestha, Grishma Accelerated bridge construction ABC refers to a bridge construction method that incorporates innovative techniques and materials to efficiently reduce construction time and traffic disruption.
Kanagin, Andrew Niels This thesis will cover the thermal and electromagnetic design and modeling of a cryogenic system to perform circuit QED measurements. The objective of our research is to grow doped cryogenic crystals and perform quantum Lopez, Daniel Anthony Capsule Networks exploit a new, vector-based perceptron model, providing feature instantiation parameters on top of feature existence probabilities.
With these vectors, simple scalar operations are elaborated to vector-matrix Schneeberger, Aaron Francis Drawing on ideas from the increasingly influential field of embodied cognition including work from neuroscientists, psychologists, and philosophers of the mind and formalist theories of the novel, specifically those of Cunningham, Amy Properly folded proteins are essential to living organisms.
McConville, Emma Grace This study has synthesized geological, geochemical, and geophysical data sets to elucidate the structural architecture and history of the Crescent basin in order to assess its geothermal potential.
The Crescent basin is a Kahler, Julie Emotion, thinking, and memory are interconnected.
Mood and thinking reciprocally spur each other, while thinking and autobiographical memory ABM recall also bi-directionally impact each other, which can lead to a cognitive Founds, Michael James Rainfall and concentrated flow experiments were carried out on seven micro-catchments MCs that were designed to represent a rangeland restoration strategy using the Vallerani Plow.

After your submission to ProQuest, the UWM theses and dissertations are automatically published in the UWM Libraries’ Digital Commons.
Digital Commons is the digital extension of the. NDLTD provides information and a search engine for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), whether they are open access or not.
Proquest Theses and Dissertations (PQDT), a database of dissertations and theses, whether they were published electronically or in print, and mostly available for purchase. Why ETD As more and more institutions move towards electronic submission, storage, and dissemination of theses and dissertations, it's important to keep in mind the benefits of ETDs -- for both students and institutions -- over traditional paper submissions.
Electronic Theses and Dissertations All students submitting a Thesis or Dissertation must do so through the Vireo Submission Process.
No paper copies of theses or dissertations will be accepted. The items in this collection are the theses and dissertations written by students of the Department of Sociology. Some items may be viewed only by members of the University of Missouri System and/or University of Missouri-Columbia.
Virginia Tech has been a world leader in electronic theses and dissertation initiatives for more than 20 years. On January 1, , Virginia Tech was the first university to require electronic submission of theses and dissertations (ETDs).
