126 Jorgensen, John L.A history of Castle Valley to 1890There is perhaps no town, township, county or geographic region in the United states which could not be taken as a concrete subject for a study of local history.1955
127 Gillies, Richard E.A history of Lincoln County, Nevada, 1776-1874Local history has the tendency to become vague and colored with incredulity when not recorded. Certainly there is much to be written concerning any area.

It shows that the spread between the borrowing cost of a state and...Macroeconomy; Municipal Bond; Probability of Default; Real Business Cycle; State Finance2015-12
135 van den akker, Mary EvelynA macroscopic and microscopic study of radon exposure using geant4 and mcnpx to estimate dose rates and dna damageRadon is considered the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Epidemiological studies have been conducted in miner cohorts as well as general populations to estimate the risks associated with high and low dose exposures. There are problems with extrapolating risk estimates to low dose e...Dosimetry; Geant4; Radon2015-12
136 Quinonez, Jonathan AlexanderA mathematical investigation of the innate and adaptive immune surveillance of tumor growthMathematical models of tumor-immune interactions provide an analytical framework by which to address specific questions about tumor-immune dynamics. We present an extension of a mathematical model developed by De Pillis et al. that accounts for the immune surveillance of tumors by natural killer (NK...2011-05
137 Gregg, Karin LeidermanA mathematical model of blood coagulation and platelet deposition under flowThe body responds to vascular injury with two intertwined processes: platelet aggregation and coagulation. Platelet aggregation is a predominantly physical process, whereby platelets clump together, and coagulation is a cascade of biochemical enzyme reactions. Thrombin, the major product of coagulat...Mathematical model; Thrombosis2010-08
138 Wallace, Catherine Eliza FrewA matter of moral agency: the religious impetus behind Woodrow Wilson's decision for unilateral belligerency in World War IWhy did President Woodrow Wilson not take advantage of the opportunity U.S. entrance into World War I afforded to extract promises from Allied leaders to commit to his postwar world vision? Wilson could have obligated the Allied governments to a postwar "peace without victory" settlement on his term...World War, 1914-19182012-05
139 Booth, Ross HunterA microfluidic in vitro model of the blood-brain barrierThe blood-brain barrier (BBB) limits entry of most molecules into the brain and complicates the development of brain-targeting compounds, necessitating novel BBB models. This dissertation describes the first microfluidic BBB model allowing the study of BBB properties in relation to various chemical ...Blood-brain barrier; MEMS; Microfluidic2014-12
140 Wood, AaronA minimal type of the 2-adic Weil representationA minimal type of the even 2-adicWeil representation is described. The Hecke algebra of this type is isomorphic to the classical affine Hecke algebra of type Bn. In this way, the Weil representation of a metaplectic group corresponds to the trivial representation of an orthogonal group in the local ...Hecke Algebras; K-Types; Metaplectic Groups; Representation Theory; Weil Representation2013-05
141 Heilman, Christina AnnA mixed methods approach examining alpine ski racing as a context; for positive youth developmentIn 2002, the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine (NRCIM) developed a framework designed to guide practitioners in optimizing youth development.
