Many systems comprised of interconnected sub-units exhibit coordinated behaviors; social groups, networked computers, financial markets, and numerous biological systems come to mind. There has been long-standing interest in developing a scientific understanding of coordination, both for explanatory power in the natural and economic sciences, and also for constructive po....

Since the early days of gas turbine engines, combustion/flow instability inside the combustor has been an issue in many engines, but little has been understood as to how the dynamics of the system involved contribute to the instability. The primary objective of this work is to provide general experimental procedures and to validate methods for examining the dynamic beha....

This thesis shows that rigorous verification of some analog implementation of any Quasi-Delay-Insensitive (QDI) asynchronous circuit is possible. That is, we show that in an accurate analog model, any behavior will adhere to the digital computation specifications under any possible noise and environment timing. Unlike a traditional simulation, we can analyze all of the ....

We derive the two-scale limit of a linear or nonlinear saturation equation with a flow-based coordinate transformation. This transformation consists of the pressure and the streamfunction. In this framework the saturation equation is decoupled to a family of one-dimensional nonconservative transport equations along streamlines. This simplifies the derivation of the two-....

Polyolefins, semicrystalline polymers also known as thermoplastics, are highly desirable because of their material properties, low cost, and ease in processing. The flow and thermal history experienced during processing are known to affect dramatic changes in crystalline kinetics and morphology, dictating the final material properties of solidified products. However, th....

Novel elastomeric photopolymer systems that exhibit macroscopic optical and mechanical changes when polymerized were designed and synthesized. These photopolymers consist of a well-defined polydimethylsiloxane matrix, an UV absorbing photoiniator, and a reactive macromer with methacrylate endgroups and a siloxane based midblock. Model elastomer matrices were synthesized....

In this thesis I study the production of photonic events with missing energy in e+e- collisions at the Large Electron-Positron (LEP) Collider. My analysis was based on 619 inverse picobarns of data collected by the L3 detector during 1998-2000 at center-of-mass energies between 189 and 208 GeV, the highest energies ever attained in an e+e- collider. I selected a high-pu....

The disastrous effects of the 1999 Chi-Chi earthquake in Taiwan demonstrated an urgent need for better knowledge of the island's potential earthquake sources as well as their neotectonic context. Toward this end, we have utilized digital elevation models of the island to prepare a neotectonic map of Taiwan and proposed a neotectonic model for the orogen. Taiwan's numero....

Dynamic sliding along incoherent (frictional) interfaces is investigated experimentally in a microsecond time scale. A bimaterial system comprised of Homalite and steel plates and a homogeneous system consisting of two Homalite plates are considered. The plates are held together by a uniform compressive stress while dynamic sliding is initiated by an impact-induced shea....

The interaural time difference (ITD) is one of two primary binaural cues used to compute the position of a sound source in space. In the barn owl, the ITD is processed in a dedicated neural pathway that terminates at the core area of the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICcc). The actual locus of the computation of the ITD is prior to ICcc in the nucleus lami....

Optical resonators are structures that spatially confine and temporally store light. The use of such resonators continues to permeate throughout society as improvements in their design and fabrication qualify them to fulfill an ever-increasing array of technological and scientific applications. Traditionally, resonators have primarily been used in lasers and as filters,....

The application of Si nanocrystals as floating gate in the metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) based memory, which brings many advantages due to separated charge storage, attracted much attention in recent years. In this work, Si nanocrystal memory with nanocrystals synthesized by ion implantation was characterized to provide a better understandin....
