    • The Navajo Concept of Wind 

      Hall, Della (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-09)
      Wind – in Navajo language – is most commonly referred to as nilch’i. In simple terms, nilch’i may be translated as “the wind,” or as “holy wind.” But that simple translation does not capture the word’s full meaning. For ...
    • Nematic Order in Spherical Geometries 

      Devaiah, Sharan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-05-11)
      Nematic Liquid crystals (NLC) are rod like molecules that in the absence of external influences arrange themselves parallel to each other and hence tend to point in a given direction. The average orientation of these ...
    • The Neural Correlates of Within Category Competition for Visual Representation

      Electroencephalography (EEG) was used to study the mechanisms of categorical perception in neurologically-normal participants. Inferring from previous studies, the N1 component of the event related potential (ERP) was ...
    • The Neurochemical Mobile: Analysis of Dynamic Interactions between Six Neurotransmitters 

      Fieni, David (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
      A mobile, typically seen in an infant’s crib, is an eloquent representation of the balance between multiple items. The neurochemical mobile is a tool used to visualize the balance between six major neurotransmitters in the ...
    • New design and implementation of the manager-client pairing framework in Manifold 

      Pereira, Roberto (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12-13)
      Researchers in the area of computer architecture rely very heavily on the use of architectural simulators in order to perform their work. However, creating these simulators can be a very costly and time-consuming task. For ...
    • Non-Deterministic Design of Utility Scale Wind Energy Systems 

      Scott, Robert (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-05)
      The wind is an increasingly significant source of energy with the rising price of non-renewable fuels. The purpose of this project is to determine the specific intensity and frequency of wind speed required to sustain a ...
