    • Fractional moments of solutions to stochastic recurrence equations 

      Mikosch, Thomas; Samorodnitsky, Gennady; Tafakori, Laleh (2012-03-13)
      In this paper we study the fractional moments of the stationary solution to a stochastic recursion. We derive recursive formulas for the fractional moments of the solution. Special attention is given to the case when the ...
    • Fracture And Adhesion In Soft Materials Subjected To Large Deformation 

      Long, Rong (2011-01-31)
      This dissertation studies large deformation elasticity with an aim to understand fracture and adhesion in soft polymeric materials. First, motivated by recent experiments using thin elastic membranes to measure interfacial ...

    • Fractured Discourse: Social Representations Of Shale Gas Development Via Hydraulic Fracturing 

      Evensen, Darrick (2014-08-18)
      Herein I investigate the nature and emergence of social representations of shale gas development (often called "fracking"). Social representations are common sense understandings of complex, novel phenomena generated in ...
    • Fractures of the radius and ulna secondary to possible vitamin D deficiency in captive polar bears (Ursus maritimus) 

      Lin, Rebecca C. (2004-05-05)
      Fractures in captive polar bears are not uncommon. The purpose of this study was to identify any common etiologic factors in cases of antebrachial fractures in captive polar bears and to evaluate the success of fracture ...
    • The Fragments And Their Nation(S): Sensitive Space Along The India-Bangladesh Border 

      Cons, Jason (2011-01-31)
      Borders are often described as "sensitive" areas-exceptional and dangerous spaces at once central to national imaginaries and at the limits of state control. Yet what does sensitivity mean for those who live in, and those ...
    • A Framework for a Computer-Aided Logistics System 

      Jackson, P.; Jones, C.; Muckstadt, J. (Cornell University Operations Research and Industrial Engineering, 1987-10)

    • A Framework for Large Eddy Simulation of incompressible flows with error control 

      Giridhar, Jothiprasad (2005-07-27)
      This work developed tools to make Large Eddy Simulation (LES) more easily applicable to engineering problems. An iterative fractional step method was developed for LES. A block-matrix-based analysis procedure proved ...
    • A Framework for Learning in Planning Domains with Uncertainty 

      Turney, Jennifer; Segre, Alberto M. (Cornell University, 1989-05)
      Attempts to apply classical planning techniques to realistic environments have met with two major difficulties. The first is that of average-case inadequacy. As one might expect, the (worst-case) computational characteristics ...
    • A Framework For Multiphase Heat And Mass Transport In Porous Media With Applications To Food Processes 

      Halder, Amit (2010-08-05)
      A framework of porous media multiphase models has been developed which can be applied to a wide range of thermal food processes. The developed models are easily implementable in commercial software and therefore has wider ...

    • Framing Effects and Risky Decision Making in Adolescents and Young Adults 

      DeMarinis, Jessica (2008-05-23)
      Fuzzy-trace theory postulates that intuitive decision making is at the apex of development. To examine developmental differences in risky decision making within this theoretical framework, framing problems factorially ...
    • Framing Effects and Risky Decisions in Young Adults 

      Myers, Regina (2008-04-15)
      We used the theoretical framework of fuzzy-trace theory to explore framing effects in young adults and their relationship to real world risk perceptions and behaviors. One hundred and two Cornell University undergraduates ...
    • Framing Nano: Media Coverage and Public Opinion about Nanotechnology 

      Gorss, Jason (2008-02-22)
