ThesisWu, YueJiaObjectives. 1. To determine the presence of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in rat embryo limb buds and adult rat knee joints. 2. To determine the pharmacological effects of recombinant human GDF5 (rhGDF5) on rat MSCs. 3. To determine the effect of rhG . . .

ThesisDanielson, RachelHigher education personnel face a myriad of tasks in the course of their professional duties. The timing and priority of these tasks are sometimes controlled by the staff themselves, but are often determined by campus or external constituents. Five en . . .

ThesisWest, PhilipIf one imagines the Gaussian primes to be lily pads in the pond of complex numbers, could a frog hop from the origin to infinity with jumps of bounded size? If the frog was confined to the real number line, the answer is no. Good heuristic arguments e . . .

ThesisGehani, RohitThe existence of cancer stem cells (CSC) postulates that tumors are organized as a cellular hierarchy and that tumor initiation, growth and cellular heterogeneity are driven by a subset of cells with stem cell like properties. The CSCs are endowed wit . . .

ThesisFard, RoxanaBone graft substitutes are commonly used as an alloplastic source for complex bone repair. Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) have become an idealistic source for bone repair and regeneration due to their potential to differentiate into osteogenic p . . .


ThesisCochran, DanaWe examine properties of the Blum Medial Axis (BMA) to improve its effectiveness for automated shape understanding. The BMA has been used to represent objects since the 1960s. Here we examine measurements on the BMA including shape tubularity (ST), er . . .

ThesisRuiz, MichaelThe study of prime numbers has been an area of interest in mathematics since antiquity. One natural question one may ask is "How many primes are there less than or equal to some positive integer?" The first attempts to answering this were in the l . . .

ThesisSuarez, RicardoClifford algebras were originally introduced to generalize the set of quaternions to higher dimensions. Since these algebras are vector spaces, we can apply methods from Linear Algebra to better understand them. In particular, we can view its elements . . .

ThesisAnanda, DevLet d(u,v) denote the distance between two vertices u and v on a graph G and let diam(G) denote the diameter of such a graph G. A connected graph G has a radio labeling f if, for all vertices u, v of G, d(u,v) + ƒ(u)  ƒ(v) ≥ diam(G) + 1 . . .

ThesisRomero, AlbaThe moon landing in 1969, achieved despite of the complexity and the lack of computer power at the time, raises questions about various computational aspects of the mission. We present a model of the lunar docking problem, in which the optimal rendezv . . .

ThesisMorrisRivera, MarcThe attributable risk is the fraction of outcomes in the population that would be reduced if the probability for a (higher probability) group were reduced to the probability for another (lower probability) group (Fleiss, et. al). We will use methods o . . .

ThesisAhmed, NausheenThe two different language based projects were designed to introduce the concepts of parabolas and integrals. Integration was introduced to college students, and eighth grade students worked with parabolas. We incorporated a story and acting exercises . . .

ThesisKoressa, MarcelAs computer and Internet technologies evolve, they play an increasingly significant role in our lives, especially in education. In particular, more students are using computers to attend online classes or to do computer based homework. Various online . . .
