101 A GPU-based maximal independent set aggregation strategy: algorithms, comparisons, and applications withing algebraic multigridThe algebraic multigrid (AMG) method is often used as a preconditioner in Krylov subspace solvers such as the conjugate gradient method. An AMG preconditioner hierarchically aggregates the degrees of freedom during the coarsening phase in order to eciently account for lower-frequency errors. Each de...GPU; Maximal independent set; Multigrid2014-08

109 A Hop, Switch, and Jump: Stochasticity in Models of Motor-Mediated Intracellular TransportActive transport of cargoes is critical for cellular function. To accomplish this, networks of cytoskeletal filaments form highways along which small teams of mechanochemical enzymes (molecular motors) take steps to pull associated cargoes. The robustness of this transport system is juxtaposed by th...Mathematics; Biology; Biophysics2018
110 A hunt for bacterial genetic determinants of exprc host colonizationExtraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) is a subset of E. coli that has evolved the ability to successfully colonize multiple host niches. It spends most of its time as a commensal within the gut as a frequent member of the microbiota. When ExPEC disperses to extraintestinal sites, it ca...Biology; Molecular biology; Microbiology2016
111 A hybrid non-threaded run-to-run control and incorporation of multiphysics models into semiconductor virtual metrologyIn order to ensure high production yield of semiconductor devices, it is desirable to characterize intermediate progress towards the final product by using metrology tools to acquire relevant measurements after each sequential processing step. The metrology data are commonly used in feedback and fee...non-threaded; process control; R2R controller; run-to-run control; semiconductor manufacturing; virtual metrology2016
112 A Kazhdan-Lusztig Algorithm for Whittaker ModulesThis dissertation develops the structure theory of the category Whittaker modules for a complex semisimple Lie algebra. We establish a character theory that distinguishes isomorphism classes of Whittaker modules in the Grothendieck group of the category, then use the localization functor of Beilinso...Mathematics; Polynomials2018
113 A Kinetic Study of the Leaching of Chalcopyrite at Elevated Temperatures and PressuresA study of the rate of dissolution of chalcopyrite (CuFeS2) in acidic solution under oxygen overpressure was carried out by measuring the rate of formation of cupriceions. Effects of temperature, oxygen partial pressure, surface area and concentration of sulfuric acid were evaluated. The temperatur...1972
114 A late pleistocene to early holocene climate, vegetation and fire history record for the bonneville basin, utah, usaThe Bonneville basin of northwestern Utah acts as a significant source of paleoenvironmental data due to the sedimentary and geomorphic evidence left behind from the late Pleistocene Lake Bonneville. Macroscopic charcoal and pollen from wetland sediments of North Redden Springs, Utah (40˚ 00' 47.1"...Bonneville Basin; Climate; Vegetation; Fire History; Heinrich Events; Lake Bonneville; Paleoecology; Paleo Indians2016-05
115 A longitudinal study of early English; immersion and literacy in Xi'an, ChinaThe present study investigated the efficacy of early English; immersion in the Shi Da Fu Elementary School in Xi'an, China. Three hundred and fifty one students were tested in Grades 1-6. There were two main purposes that motivated this longitudinal and cross-sectional study. The first goal was to ...English; as a foreign language (EFL); English; language teaching; English; oral language proficiency; Immersion programs; Second language (L2) literacy; Second language (L2) reading comprehension2010-12
116 A Longitudinal Study of Women Coaching Women Through Motivational Interviewing and the Interrelationships Between Depression, Health Behaviors, and Changes in ObesitySome evidence supports the development of holistic interventions that address the overlap between obesity and depression, the both of which have increased burden among women in marginalized communities.
