Maternal Immune Activation Alters Behavior of Adult Offspring: Sex-Dependent Impairment and Attenuation by Glycan 

Arnold, Megan (2020-07-17)
The developing fetus is exceptionally sensitive to insult. Perturbation during this critical period of development can have lasting effects throughout offspring lifespan. Viral infection and obesity are insults that ...

Maternal nesting behavior in lizards enhances colonization of urban environments 

Tiatragul, Sarin (2018-11-15)
Lizards occupy diverse habitats around the world from dense forests to arid deserts. The environments in which lizards exist pose different challenges for nesting females because embryo development is directly affected by ...

Math Developmental Education Practices in the Alabama Community College System: Fall 2012 to Summer 2022 

Birchfield, Kelly (2023-12-11)
In the United States, students often graduate from high school unprepared to succeed in college. In Alabama, fewer than 25% of high school graduates are college ready. Frequently, unprepared students enroll in community ...

Mathematical and Numerical Analysis for Linear Peridynamic Boundary Value Problems 

Wu, Hao (2017-04-26)
Peridynamics is motivated in aid of modeling the problems from continuum mechanics which involve the spontaneous discontinuity forms in the motion of a material system. By replacing differentiation with integration, ...

Mathematical Studies of Population Models in Stochastic Environments 

Jiaqi, Cheng (2022-04-28)
This dissertation is devoted to the study of population models in stochastic environments. We will investigate a two-species lottery model in non-stationary stochastic environment, an $N-$species lottery model in stationary ...

Mathematics Anxiety and Mathematics Self-Efficacy as Predictors of Mathematics Teaching Self-Efficacy 

Etheridge, Lisa (2016-07-08)
The purpose of this multiple methods study was to investigate whether elementary mathematics teachers’ mathematics anxiety and/or mathematical efficacy predict their mathematical teaching efficacy. The study included 51 ...

Mathematics Behind Planimeters 

Yardimci, Osman (2013-06-18)
Original master thesis project: By studying the literature, collect and write a survey paper on the mathematics of the planimeters. Planimeter is a somewhat forgotten ingenious device which was invented in 1814 to satisfy ...

Mathematics Enrichment through Accelerated Learning to improve Learning and Achievement for PreK-12 students in Alabama 

Asogwa, Onyinye Rosemary (2023-12-11)
The most recent nationwide math scores for 13-year-olds in the US dropping to the lowest level in decades, including Alabama's placement at the bottom, as revealed by the 2019 nationwide NAEP assessment, highlight the ...

Mating Behavior of Columbian Ground Squirrels 

Manno, Theodore (2008-08-15)
Columbian ground squirrels (Spermophilus columbianus) are diurnal, herbivorous, colonial, and hibernatory rodents that reside in the Rocky Mountains of western North America. During April-July in 2005-2007, field assistants ...

Mating Tactics and Reproductive Success in Male Columbian Ground Squirrels (Urocitellus columbianus) 

Balmer, Adele (2010-12-06)
The widespread discovery of multiple mating tactics, particularly among males, highlights the diverse ways sexual selection may operate within a population. In polygynandrous populations, multiple paternity may arise from ...

Matrix Algebras over Strongly Non-Singular Rings 

McQuaig, Bradley (2014-03-31)
We consider some existing results regarding rings for which the classes of torsion-free and non-singular right modules coincide. Here, a right R-module M is non-singular if xI is nonzero for every nonzero x in M and every ...

Matrix Metalloproteinase-Responsive Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles (SPIONs) to Distinguish Between Aggressive and Indolent Cancer 

Anani, Tareq (2018-04-24)
Biomedical imaging modalities play a key role in the detection and accurate characterization of cancer lesions. While anatomical imaging modalities provide essential information about the location and size of a tumor lesion, ...

Maximal L1 Regularity for a Class of Parabolic Systems and Applications to Navier-Stokes Equations 

Xu, Huan (2021-07-14)
This dissertation is devoted to the maximal L1-in-time regularity for a class of linear parabolic systems with variable coefficients. This theory can be applied to investigate the global-in-time well-posedness and stability ...

Maximal Sets of Hamilton Cycles in Complete Multipartite Graphs 

Noble, Abigail (2012-08-02)
A set of S edge-disjoint hamilton cycles in a graph G is said to be maximal if the hamilton cycles in S form a subgraph of G such that G-E(S) has no hamilton cycle. The set of integers m for which a graph G contains a ...

Maximal Sets of Hamilton Cycles in Complete Multipartite Graphs IV 

Tidwell, David (2021-12-06)
Finding the values of s for which there exists a maximal set of s edge-disjoint Hamilton cycles in the complete multipartite graph K_n^p has been considered in papers for over 20 years. This paper finally settles the problem ...

Maximizing Collaborative Problem Solving within Higher Education Design Studios with a Minimal Open Floor Plan 

Evans, Marise (2008-08-15)
Past research has determined a number of new teaching methods which enhance student learning. Yet most of this research revolves around course content and teaching techniques rather than modification of the environment ...

Maximizing Connectivity and Performance in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Using Mobile Agents
