[20150128] Quadrupole Strong Focusing for SpaceCharge Dominated Electron Beams in TravelingWave Tubes
Analysis of quadrupole focusing lattices for highfrequency TWT’s is presented. This work is motivated by recent work performed at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) which demonstrated an advantageous case for strong ... 
[20130131] Quantification and propagation of nuclear data uncertainties
The use of several uncertainty quantification and propagation methodologies is investigated in the context of the prompt fission neutron spectrum (PFNS) uncertainties and its impact on critical reactor assemblies. First, ... 
[20140214] Quantification of Stability in Systems of Nonlinear Ordinary Differential Equations
A common process in ODE theory is to linearize an ODE system about an equilibrium point to determine the local stability properties of its orbits. Less common are results that quantify the domain of stability in the original ... 
[20160201] QUANTIFYING TEMPERATURE SENSITIVITY OF SOIL RESPIRATION ACROSS A RANGE OF SEMIARID BIOMES
Soils in semiarid regions store approximately 10% of earth’s soil organic carbon, the substrate which microbes oxidize, resulting in the largest source of carbon to the atmosphere from terrestrial ecosystems. Semiarid ... 
[20120827] Quantifying the contribution of bank storage due to an alteration in stream stage
The desire to control rivers to reduce risks of flooding while providing water storage for municipal and agricultural uses has resulted in the disconnection of rivers from their floodplains. An important and often neglected ... 
[20100909] Quantifying uncertainty in reliability block diagrams
Reliability analysis yields statistically derived technical system performance estimates. Traditional reliability analysis employs classical statistical techniques predicated upon asymptotic properties of large data sets. ... 
[20130905] Quantitative determinants of prefabs: A corpusbased, experimental study of multiword units in the lexicon
In recent years many researchers have been rethinking the ‘Words and Rules’ model of syntax (Pinker 1999), instead arguing that language processing relies on a large number of preassembled multiword units, or ‘prefabs’ ... 
[20140109] Quantitative Ktheory and spin Chern numbers [dataset]
We examine the various indices defined on pairs of almost commuting unitary matrices that can detect pairs that are far from commuting pairs. We do this is two symmetry classes, that of general unitary matrices and ... 
[20110702] Quantitative structureproperty relationships for predicting chlorine demand and disinfection byproducts formation in drinking water
Models are important tools for designing or redesigning water treatment processes and technologies to minimize disinfection byproducts (DBPs) formation without compromising disinfection efficiency. Empirical models, which ... 
[20100628] Quantitative structureproperty relationships for predicting group IIB metal binding by organic ligands
Mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), and zinc (Zn) in the environment are all of toxicological and environmental concern, and the pollution of natural waters by any of these three elements is most serious. Mercury is the most ... 
[20120827] Quantum algorithms, symmetry, and Fourier analysis
I describe the role of symmetry in two quantum algorithms, with a focus on how that symmetry is made manifest by the Fourier transform. The Fourier transform can be considered in a wider context than the familiar one of ... 
[20090827] Quantum control of ddimensional quantum systems with application to alkali atomic spins
In this dissertation I analyze Hamiltonian control of ddimensional quantum systems as realized in alkali atomic spins. Alkali atoms provide an ideal platform for studies of quantum control due to the extreme precision ... 
[20120828] Quantum correlations, chaos and information
Quantum chaos is the study of quantum systems whose classical description is chaotic. How does chaos manifest itself in the quantum world? In this spirit, we study the dynamical generation of entanglement as a signature ... 
[20080207] Quantum dot gainlever laser diode
Semiconductor quantum dot (QD) lasers are competitive candidates for many applications such as highspeed longhaul optical communication systems. This is due to their superior lasing characteristics (compared to conventional ... 
[20141020] Quartzkyanite pods in Proterozoic rocks in northern New Mexico : shear zone formation along an older hydrothermal alteration horizon
Large quartzkyanite schist pods of unusual bulk composition enclosed by shells of sericite schist occur within the 1.7 Ga Vadito Group metarhyolite in northern New Mexico. These pods are discontinuous, lenticular, ... 
[20120329] QuasiMonte Carlo methods in robust control design
Many practical control problems are so complex that traditional analysis and design methods fail to solve. Consequently, sampling methods that provide approximate solutions to such difficult problems have emerged. In this ... 
[20141017] Quaternary incision history of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado
The Gunnison River, a major tributary of the Colorado River houses the Black Canyon, one of the narrowest (350 m) and deepest (700 m) bedrock canyons in North America and is an excellent location to study Cenozoic river ... 
[20120322] The Quaternions with an application to Rigid Body Dynamics
William Rowan Hamilton invented the quaternions in 1843, in his effort to construct hypercomplex numbers, or higher dimensional generalizations of the complex numbers. Failing to construct a generalization in three dimensions ... 
[20110702] Quest for a Deaf Child: Ethics and Genetics
This project investigates the question of whether it is morally justifiable to use genetic technology in order to bear a deaf child. Even though it may seem counterintuitive to hearing people, deaf people often desire to ... 
[20140213] Quiet on the Set!: Writing Socially in an Elementary AfterSchool Video Club
The research presented is a qualitative case study of an afterschool video club for elementary age students. The focus of the project revolved around one main question: how do students socially read and write videos? The ...
