The Cornell University Graduate Shool has 93 major fields and 14 minor fields of study. For more information about the Cornell University Graduate School go to its Home Page.

The theses and dissertations of graduate students at Cornell University have been deposited in Cornell's institutional repository (eCommons) since about 2004. This collection also includes a few earlier Cornell theses.

Students retain ownership of the copyright of their work. Students also have the option of imposing a temporary embargo on access to the full text of their theses. This embargo may last from one to five years. If access to a thesis is restricted, the metadata record for the thesis is still visible, but you will see "Access to Document Restricted" under the document thumbnail image. Below this will be a field labeled "No Access Until," which indicates the date when the full text of the thesis will be accessible.

More information about Cornell theses and dissertations is available here:

In general, older theses and dissertations from Cornell University are not currently available as digital files in eCommons. The Library is willing to digitize and make available older Cornell theses on a cost recovery basis. If you are interested in this service, please contact

    Sullivan, Peter Mayo (2017-08-30)
    Intronic hexanucleotide repeat expansion in the C9orf72 gene is a leading cause of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Among several hypotheses, reduced expression of C9orf72 ...
  • A Radical Characterization of Abelian Varieties 

    Hui, Heung Shan Theodore (2017-08-30)
    Let $A$ be a square-free abelian variety defined over a number field $K$. Let $S$ be a density one set of prime ideals $\p$ of $\mathcal{O}_K$. A famous theorem of Faltings says that the Frobenius polynomials $P_{A,\p}(x)$ ...

    Noest, Robert Matthijs (2017-08-30)
    In complex dynamical systems consisting of many interacting degrees of freedom it can be impossible to predict how any single one will behave. Yet, usually, out of the chaos emerge simple laws that guide the behavior of ...
