Extensions of Monotonicity Results to Semisimple Lie Groups 

Sarver, Zachary (2016-05-05)
We extend a monotonicity result of Wang and Gong on the product of powers of positive definite matrices. This result concerns the eigenvalues of such products which written as vectors have a log majorization relationship. ...

The Extent and Limitations of Correlating Measured Interharmonics and Measured Voltage Fluctuations 

Eidson, Brandon (2015-12-10)
Amplitude modulation is a well-known cause of voltage fluctuations resulting in luminous lamp flicker. Amplitude modulation can be more generally quantified in terms of interharmonics. The theoretical correlation between ...

External Influences on Weak State Foreign Policy: The United States and Italy during the Cold War 

Spyker, Rick (2010-05-06)
This dissertation examines the extent to which one country may influence the foreign policy choices of a weaker partner. It specifically examines the complex interdependent relationship between Italy and the United States ...

Extra-home range and excursive movements by white-tailed deer 

Jacobsen, Todd (2017-01-11)
Little information is available concerning excursive movements by white-tailed deer. Past studies addressing these movements have approached excursion detection in a manner that we believe is severely limited and that ...

An Extract Function Refactoring for the Go Language 

Gnanaprakasa, Steffi Mariya (2015-07-31)
Refactoring is a disciplined technique for restructuring an existing body of code, altering its internal code structure without changing its external behavior. Refactoring is specified as a parameterized program transformation ...

Extreme Environment Reliability of Components for Computing with SAC305 and Alternative High Reliability Solders 

Sanders, Thomas (2016-05-11)
The semiconductor and packaging industries have been moving away from the use of Lead (Pb) due to the increasing awareness of the health and safety concerns surrounding its use. For many applications, the industry has moved ...

Extrusion and Properties of Nanoclay Added Composite Polypropylene Monofilaments 

Selver, Erdem (2010-04-01)
This study focuses on combining traditional polymeric materials with nanoclays to engineer new composite monofilaments for nontraditional industries using extrusion process. Polypropylene/nanoclay composite monofilaments ...

An Eye-Tracking Study of Attentional Biases for Uncertainty and Generalized Anxiety Symptoms 

Rogers, Travis (2018-04-17)
Intolerance of uncertainty (IU), a dispositional characteristic reflecting negative beliefs about the potential threat of uncertainty (Koerner & Dugas, 2007), is related to information-processing biases (e.g., interpretation ...

An Eye-tracking study: Do intrinsic and extrinsic cue words of locally grown food menu items associate with consumers’ visual attention and menu item choice at hyper-local restaurants? 

Conoly, Yoonah (2021-07-22)  ETD File Embargoed
Consumers’ interest in locally grown food is growing. However, there has been limited research exploring how certain cue words on menus could be eye-catching and correlate to consumers’ food selection decision. Therefore, ...
