Esport: Professional League of Legends as Cultural History
This thesis offers a preliminary cultural-historical investigation of professional League of Legends using Tygielian sport history methodology. League’s massive popularity brought esports greater visibility, and laid bare ...
Petrology and Geochemistry of New Paired Martian Meteorites LAR 12240 and LAR 12095
This project describes two Martian meteorites, paired olivine-phyric shergottites LAR 12240 and LAR 12095, in order to decipher their petrological context, and place constraints on the geological history of Mars. This ...
The Theodor Geisel Award Books: An Exploration of Early Readers
The importance of beginner books in the lives of nascent readers cannot be understated. In an effort to recognize these critical tools for early reading, the American Library Association created the Theodor Geisel Award ...
Experimental Evaluation of Convergence Layers in Delay Tolerant Networks
Traditional Internet protocols like TCP/IP and UDP/IP are not designed to perform efficiently in Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN) environments that operate in environments with high delays, significant losses, and intermittent ...
Lateral Movement Detection Using ELK Stack
In recent time, it is becoming increasingly difficult to prevent initial infiltration of a network, making it important to always consider and improve detection of an ongoing incident. Any attacker spends most energy, time ...
Academic Advising Influence on Undergraduate Student Odds of Retention and Graduation: A Multilevel Analysis
Background: Academic advising can be an effective intervention for students needing guidance through their academic programs. At this point, we are unsure how academic advising affects the success of students who bring ...
Tissue Engineered Heart Pump Development and Assessment
Development of a natural alternative to cardiac assist devices (CADs) will pave the way to a heart failure therapy which overcomes the disadvantages of current mechanical devices. Through implementation of the three ...
Implementation and Evaluation of Additional Parallel Features of Coarary Fortran
The Fortran 2008 language standard added a feature called "coarrays" to allow parallel programming in Fortran with only minimal changes to existing sequential Fortran programs. Coarrays turn Fortran into a Partitioned ...
Convergence Acceleration in Scattering Series and Seismic Waveform Inversion Using Nonlinear Shanks Transformation
An iterative solution process is fundamental in seismic inversion, such as in full-waveform inversions and inverse scattering methods. However, the convergence process could be slow or even divergent ...
