    • Geometric Flows On Manifolds With Boundary 

      Pulemotov, Artem (2009-10-13)
      The present dissertation discusses three connected subjects. Firstly, we establish a version of the Hopf boundary point lemma for sections of a vector bundle over a manifold M with nonempty boundary. This result may be ...
    • Geometric Optimization and Computational Complexity 

      Bajaj, Chanderjit (Cornell University, 1984-08)
      Our purpose here is to study problems involving geometric optimization, namely, questions of the type: Is there at least a minimum or at most a maximum number of certain geometric figures, that are within certain distances ...

      The main contributions of the present thesis are novel computational methods related to uncertainty quantification, inverse problems and reduced order modeling in engineering. In the first chapter, we describe a framework ...
    • A GEOMETRICALLY EXACT THIN-WALLED BEAM THEORY CONSIDERING IN-PLANE CROSS-SECTION DISTORTION 

      Yiu, Fang (2005-08-05)
      A fully nonlinear theory of a three-dimensional thin-walled beam, in arbitrary rectangular coordinates with the pole of the sectorial area at an arbitrary point and the origin of the sectorial area at an arbitrary point ...
    • Geometrically Explicit Finite Element Modeling Of Aa7075-T651 Microstructure With Fatigue Cracks 

      Veilleux, Michael (2011-01-31)
      This dissertation is divided into three chapters, where each is an independent paper intended to be submitted as a refereed journal article. The main thrust of the research project overarching all three papers is to develop ...

    • Geometry of elastic hydrofracturing by injection of an over pressured non-Newtonian Fluid 

      J Chavez-Alvarez, E Soto; B Barrientos, C Mares; M Cerca (2009-10-19)
      The nucleation and propagation of hydrofractures by injection of over pressured fluids in an elastic and isotropic medium are studied experimentally. Non-Newtonian fluids are injected inside a gelatine whose mechanical ...
    • The Geometry Of Generalized Lamplighter Groups 

      Amchislavska, Margarita (2014-08-18)
      This work examines geometric properties of generalized lamplighter groups. The thesis contains two parts. The first part gives an elementary account of Bartholdi, Neuhauser and Woess's result that the Cayley graphs of a ...
    • The Geometry of Projective Blending Surfaces 

      Hoffmann, Christoph M.; Hopcroft, John E. (Cornell University, 1986-05)
      Blending surfaces smoothly join two or more primary surfaces that otherwise would intersect in edges. We outline the potential method for deriving blending surfaces, and explain why the method needs to be considered in ...
    • Geophysical and geological databases and CTBT monitoring: A case study of the Middle East 

      Barazangi, M.; Fielding, E.; Isacks, B.; Seber, D. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1996)
      With the anticipated completion of multilateral comprehensive nuclear test ban and nonproliferation treaties in the near future, it is essential for the monitoring efforts that multidisciplinary information on a given ...
    • Geophysical evidence for lithospheric delamination beneath the Alboran Sea and Rif-Betic mountains

    • Geophysical Investigations At Los Naranjos Honduras: Insights Into Early Mesoamerican Culture 

      Tchakirides, Tiffany (2010-08-05)
      This dissertation discusses the results of three-dimensional ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data and magnetometry data conducted at the archaeological site of Los Naranjos, Honduras during the summer of 2003 and spring of ...
    • A Geophysical Survey Of Active Volcanism In The Central And Southern Andes 

      Jay, Jennifer (2014-05-25)
      The subduction of the Nazca plate beneath the South American plate results in great earthquakes and active volcanism along the Andean margin. The Central Volcanic Zone (CVZ) between 15°S and 28°S and the Southern Volcanic ...
