  • The Dynamics Of Entrepreneurial Human Capital 

    Toth, Russell (2012-01-31)
    with a theory of EHC accumulation. I also exploit the exogenous nature of the occupational shock to provide causal evidence for an economically-significant value of entrepreneurial experience. Secondly, I develop a full ...
  • Dynamics Of Epistasis From Duplicate Genes To Genome-Wide Networks 

    Xu, Lin (2012-01-31)
    Epistasis refers to the phenomenon that phenotypic consequences caused by mutation of one gene depend on one or more mutations at another gene. Epistasis is critical for understanding many genetic and evolutionary processes, ...
  • Dynamics Of Gene Networks With Time Delays 

    Verdugo, Anael (2009-08-19)
    The study of time delays and their influence on gene network dynamics is the central topic of this thesis. Three different gene models with delay are studied: (1) a single gene-mRNA-protein model (2) a multiple gene network ...
  • The Dynamics of Infant Attention 

    Dilzell, Kristen (2011-05)
    Attention allocation and visual foraging are adaptively important behaviors in providing information about the world for effective goal-directed behavior and survival. Timely re-direction of gaze facilitates integration ...
  • The Dynamics Of Information Diffusion On On-Line Social Networks 

    Wu, Shaomei (2013-01-28)
    Although there has been a long history of studying the diffusion of information in various social science fields, existing theories are mostly built on direct observations in small networks or survey responses from large ...
  • Dynamics of Labor Market Earnings and Sector of Employment in Urban Mexico, 1987-2002. 

    Duval Hernandez, Robert (2005-12-23)
    This dissertation studies labor earnings mobility in the short-run and the structure of labor markets in urban Mexico, from 1987 to 2002. In the first part it gauges the average earnings mobility in the economy and ...
  • Dynamics Of Leaf And Fine Root Litter Decay In Temperate Forests 

    Li, Ang (2012-08-20)
    Leaf and fine root litter decomposition is central to biogeochemical cycles in northern forest. I studied the nitrogen translocation to leaf litter during decomposition, and the fine root decomposition process. Nitrogen ...
  • Dynamics Of Orientable Particulate Suspensions: Continuum Simulations Of ‘Living’ Fluids And Meso-Scale Simulations Of Anisotropic Particle Suspensions 

    Qi, Ling (2014-05-25)
    Two simulation techniques that are used to approach two very different suspension problems - continuum scale 'active fluids' contain living cells that can respond to external stimuli such as light; and passive fluids contain ...
  • Dynamics Of Reconfigurable Multibody Space Systems Connected By Magnetic Flux Pinning 

    Shoer, Joseph (2011-05-31)
    Many future space systems, from solar power collection satellites to sparseaperture telescopes, will involve large-scale space structures which must be launched in a modular fashion. Currently, assembling modular structures ...
  • Dynamics of Shells 

    Belmouden, Youssef; Bostrom, Anders; Croll, James G. A.; Folkow, Peter D.; Hagglund, Anders M.; Lestuzzi, Pierino; Mauritsson, Karl; Ostavari Dailamani, Shadi; Sellami, Souad (Internet-First University Press, 2008-05)
    IASS 2008 Session: Dynamics of Shells -- "A seismic analysis of a modular shell system" by Youssef BELMOUDEN, Pierino LESTUZZI, Souad SELLAMI (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne) -- "Earthquake analysis of ...
  • The Dynamics Of Social Contagion 

    Barash, Vladimir (2011-08-31)
    Social contagion is a subset of contagion which includes all social phenomena that can and do spread via social networks. The notion of how something becomes popular is very relevant to the concept of social contagion. ...
  • Dynamics Of Social Network Evolution And Information Diffusion 

    Romero, Daniel (2012-05-27)
    Millions of interactions between people take place on the Web everyday. In this work, we utilize data obtained by tracking these interactions on social media sites to study two important aspects of social networks: the way ...
  • Dynamics of Solvent-free Grafted Nanoparticles 

    Chremos, Alexandros; Panagiotopoulos, Athanassios; Koch, Donald (The Journal of Chemical Physics, 2012-01-26)
    The diffusivity and structural relaxation characteristics of oligomer-grafted nanoparticles have been investigated with simulations of a previously proposed coarse-grained model at atmospheric pressure. Solvent-free, ...
  • Dynamics of Supralittoral Freshwater Rock Pools in the Gulf of Maine 

    Levas, Stephen (2007-06-29)
    Appledore Island, located six miles off the coast of Portsmouth, NH, has over 500 freshwater peripheral pools situated above the intertidal zone and range in size from semi permanent pools measuring 15 centimeters across ...
  • Dynamics Of The Circadian Rhythm In Drosophila Melanogaster 

    Kidd, Philip (2015-01-26)
    The circadian clock drives daily rhythms in many organisms and is a key regulator of diverse physiological functions, including metabolism, the immune system, and sleep. Circadian oscillators also have a variety of interesting ...
  • Dynamics of Three Coupled Van Der Pol Oscillators With Application to Circadian Rhythms 

    Rompala, Kevin Robert (2006-03-03)
    In this thesis we study the dynamics of the in-phase mode for a system of three coupled van der Pol oscillators. Two of the oscillators are taken to be identical and coupled indirectly via a third oscillator whose natural ...
