    • 3D Image Reconstruction and Level Set Methods
    • Patty, Spencer R
    • We give a concise explication of the theory of level set methods for modeling motion of an interface as well as the numerical implementation of these methods. We then introduce the geometry of a camera and the mathematical models for 3D...


    • "We're Definitely on Our Own": Interaction and Disconnection in a Virtual High School
    • Hawkins, Abigail
    • Using mixed methods, this study examined the nature of teacher-student interaction in an asynchronous, statewide, self-paced virtual high school. Eight teachers were interviewed to understand their perceptions on the nature of interactions and...


    • A Bayesian Decision Theoretical Approach to Supervised Learning, Selective Sampling, and Empirical Function Optimization
    • Carroll, James Lamond 1975-
    • Many have used the principles of statistics and Bayesian decision theory to model specific learning problems. It is less common to see models of the processes of learning in general. One exception is the model of the supervised learning process...


    • A Comparative Analysis of Energy ModelingMethods for Commercial Buildings
    • Salmon, Spencer Mark
    • This thesis researched the accuracy of measured energy data in comparison to estimated hand calculation data and estimated building energy performance simulation data. In the facility management industry, there is minimal evidence that building...


    • A Comparative Study of Strength and Stiffness of Thin-Walled Specimens Fabricated By FDM and 3D Printing Technologies
    • Miranda, Rodrigo
    • Rapid Prototyped part failure constitutes a major issue for both RP providers and customers. When parts fail the reputation of the vendor is heavily deteriorated, customer dissatisfaction increase and replacement of the broken parts is often...


    • A Comparison of the Effects of Negative Communication and Spirituality on Relationship Quality Among Different Groups of Latino and Anglo Couples
    • Pereyra, Sergio Benjamin
    • This study examined the direct relationship between actor/ partner effects of negative communication, spirituality and relationship quality and also examined negative communication when mediated by spirituality among four types of couples. The...


    • A Comparison of the Marriage Checkup and Traditional Marital Therapy: Examining Distress Levels at Intake for Student Couples
    • Erwin, Benjamin Richard 1976-
    • The Marriage Checkup (Cordova, Warren & Gee, 2001) was introduced as a brief intervention targeting couples at risk for severe marital distress. The purpose of this study was to examine married couples who participated in The Marriage Checkup for...


    • A Comparison Study Between Instructional and Transformational Leadership Theories: Effects on Student Achievement and Teacher Job Satisfaction
    • Shatzer, Ryan Hamilton 1983-
    • This study examined the impact that school leaders have on teacher job satisfaction and student achievement. The threefold purpose of this study was to (1) compare transformational and instructional leadership theories, (2) examine the unique...


    • A Conceptual Model OF Groundwater Flow in Spring Valley, NV, AND Snake Valley, NV-UT
    • Gillespie, Jeremy Micheal 1981-
    • A geochemical study of major springs and wells in Spring Valley, Nevada, and Snake Valley, Utah-Nevada was initiated in response to the Clark, Lincoln and White Pine Counties Groundwater Development Project proposed by the South Nevada Water...


    • A District-Wide Study Confirming the Relationship Between Professional Learning Communities and Student Achievement in Elementary Schools
    • Backman, Joseph Samuel
    • Researchers have studied professional learning communities for over two decades. Educators have utilized the elements of professional learning communities in their schools to improve instruction and student learning. Yet, there is limited empirical...


    • A Finite Element Simulation of Temperature and Material Flow in Fricton Stir Welding
    • Lasley, Mark J 1978-
    • The purpose of this research was to use the Transvalor S.A. product, Forge3, to develop a finite element simulation of the friction stir welding process that improves the predictability of temperature evolution and material flow within the...



    • A Five-Zone Model for Direct Injection Diesel Combustion
    • Asay, Rich 1973-
    • Recent imaging studies have provided a new conceptual model of the internal structure of direct injection diesel fuel jets as well as empirical correlations predicting jet development and structure. This information was used to create a diesel...


    • A Framework for Extraction Plans and Heuristics in an Ontology-Based Data-Extraction System
    • Wessman, Alan E 1975-
    • Extraction of information from semi-structured or unstructured documents, such as Web pages, is a useful yet complex task. Research has demonstrated that ontologies may be used to achieve a high degree of accuracy in data extraction while...



    • A Generalized Two-Dimensional Model to Reconstruct the Impact Phase in Automobile Collisions
    • David, Regis Agenor 1981-
    • Automobile accident reconstruction has been facilitated by the development of computer based modules to allow evaluation of evidence gathered at the accident scenes. Although the computer modules are based in fundamental physical laws, an...


    • A High-Resolution Microscopic Electrical Impedance Imaging Modality: Scanning Impedance Imaging
    • Liu, Hongze 1980-
    • Electrical impedance imaging is an imaging technique which has the capability of revealing the spatial distribution of the electrical impedance inside biological tissues. Classical electrical impedance imaging including Electrical Impedance...


    • A Longitudinal Examination of the Influences of Family Processes and Demographic Variables on Adolescent Weight
    • Price, Jessica Lee 1984-
    • Nationally representative studies estimate that almost one in five adolescents in the United States is overweight. This is a major concern for individuals’ physical and psychological health and the overall economy in terms of health care costs...


    • A Mechanistic Investigation of Nitrogen Evolution in Pulverized Coal Oxy-Fuel Combustion
    • Mackrory, Andrew John 1977-
    • Oxy-fuel combustion is an enabling technology for capture of CO2 from coal combustion, the economics of which depends strongly on the ability of the process to produce low NOX emissions. The literature contains many reports of lower NOX emissions...


    • A Methodology for Strategically Designing Physical Products that are Naturally Resistant to Reverse Engineering
    • Harston, Stephen P.
    • Reverse engineering - defined as extracting information about a product from the product itself - is a design tactic commonly used in industry from competitive benchmarking to product imitation. While reverse engineering is a legitimate practice -...


    • A Naive, Robust and Stable State Estimate
    • Remund, Todd Gordon 1975-
    • A naive approach to filtering for feedback control of dynamic systems that is robust and stable is proposed. Simulations are run on the filters presented to investigate the robustness properties of each filter. Each simulation with the comparison...


    • A New Geophysical Strategy for Measuring the Thickness of the Critical Zone
    • Yaede, Johnathan R.
    • Estimates of the depth and variation of lateritic weathering profiles are especially important in tropical areas such as Oahu, HI. Shear-wave velocity data were obtained by a new application of Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) to map...
