The College of Sciences was created by a separation from the College of Sciences and Liberal Studies. The new College was established in anticipation of the growing importance of interdisciplinary scientific technology-and its establishment has proven to be both wise and timely.

  • The Hunt for Planet B 

    Seager, Sara (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-11-14)
    For thousands of years, inspired by the star-filled dark night sky, people have wondered what lies beyond Earth. Today, the search for signs of life is a key factor in modern-day planetary exploration. Astronomers have ...
  • Topological Properties of SU(n) Fermions 

    Yau, Man Hon (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    Ultra-cold fermions loaded in optical lattices have become ideal systems to study related electronic phase diagrams and transport properties, because they provide a clean and well controlled playground to change various ...
  • Shortest closed curve to inspect a sphere 

    Wenk, James F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    We show that in Euclidean 3-space any closed curve γ which lies outside the unit sphere and contains the sphere within its convex hull has length ≥ 4π. Equality holds only when γ is composed of 4 semicircles of length π, ...
  • Thulium atoms embedded in noble gas crystals for sensing applications 

    Gaire, Vinod (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    Narrow linewidth atomic transitions provide opportunities for the development of various quantum technologies. Thulium has an unfulfilled 4$f$ orbital with the electronic configuration similar to Yb$^{3+}$ which is used ...
  • Improved Understanding of Intraplate Earthquakes in the Southeastern USA with Matched Filter Detection 

    Daniels, Clara (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    Most earthquakes occur along plate boundaries (also known as interplate earthquakes) and are caused by repeated accumulation and release of strain in tectonic plates moving past one another. However, the same driving forces ...
  • Algebraic and semi-algebraic invariants on quadrics 

    Jung, Jaewoo (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    This dissertation consists of two topics concerning algebraic and semi-algebraic invariants on quadrics. The ranks of the minimal graded free resolution of square-free quadratic monomial ideals can be investigated ...
  • Characterization of biological signatures of ribonucleotides incorporated into DNA using the Ribose-Map bioinformatics toolkit 

    Gombolay, Alli (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    The incorporation of ribonucleoside monophosphates (rNMPs) into DNA is one of the most frequently occurring errors during DNA synthesis. To maintain genome integrity, the ribonuclease (RNase) H enzymes efficiently remove ...
  • Unsupervised Algorithms for Automated Gene Prediction in Novel Eukaryotic Genomes 

    Bruna, Tomas (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-29)
    Gene prediction, the identification of the location and structure of protein-coding genes in genomic sequences, is one of the first and most important steps in the analysis of assembled genomes. The exponential growth of ...
  • Matching problems in hypergraphs 

    Yuan, Xiaofan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
    Kühn, Osthus, and Treglown and, independently, Khan proved that if H is a 3-uniform hypergraph on n vertices, where n is a multiple of 3 and large, and the minimum vertex degree of H is greater than {(n-1) choose 2} - {2n/3 ...
  • Application of The Circle Method in Five Number Theory Problems 

    Mousavi, Seyyed Hamed (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-01)
    This thesis consists of three applications of the circle method in number theory problems. In the first chapter, we study a question of Graham. Are there infinitely many integers $n$ for which the central binomial coefficient ...
  • Search for astrophysical neutrino sources using IceCube low-energy neutrinos 

    Chen, Chujie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-29)
    Astrophysical neutrinos can escape from radiation-opaque regions and act as messengers, allowing us to explore some of the most extreme environments in the universe. The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is designed to observe ...
  • Studying Millisecond Pulsars and Pulsar Tails in the Very-High-Energy Gamma-ray Regime with VERITAS 

    Gent, Alasdair E. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-26)
    Years have passed since the first detection of pulsed very-high-energy (VHE; E \textgreater 100 GeV) gamma-rays from the Crab pulsar with VERITAS, yet much is still unresolved in relation to the nature of pulsar emission ...
  • NON-SEPARATING PATHS IN GRAPHS 

    Qian, Yingjie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-01)
    When developing a theory for 3-connected graphs, Tutte showed that for any 3-connected graph G and any three vertices a, b, c of G, G-c has an a-b path P such that G-P is connected. We call paths non-separating if their ...
  • Computational Genomics to Characterize the Distribution, Diversity and Drug Resistance of Fungal Pathogens 

    Etienne, Kizee A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-26)
    Molecular strain typing of pathogenic fungi has been the “gold-standard” of epidemiology and laboratory-based surveillance in public health mycology providing information on the geographic distribution among groups of ...
  • Trellis Decoding And Applications For Quantum Error Correction 

    Sabo, Eric (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-08)
    Compact, graphical representations of error-correcting codes called trellises are a crucial tool in classical coding theory, establishing both theoretical properties and performance metrics for practical use. The idea was ...
  • EXPLAINING FEATURES OF SIMPLE HUMAN DECISIONS USING BAYESIAN NEURAL NETWORKS 

    Rafiei, Farshad (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-20)
    Feedforward neural networks exhibit excellent object recognition performance and currently provide the best models of biological vision. However, despite their remarkable performance in recognizing unseen images, their ...
  • Communication Pattern Analysis in Human-Autonomy Teaming 

    Zhou, Shiwen (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-20)
    Communication is critical to team coordination and interaction because it provides information flows allowing a team to build team cognition, which contributes to overall team performance. In recent years, autonomous (AI) ...
