A Self-regulated Learning Intervention for Developmental Mathematics Students at a Community College: Effects of Study Journals on Achievement and Study Habits
Self-regulated learners continually monitor and adjust the learning process through a recursive loop of forethought, learning enactment, and reflection. The literature review for this study used a systematic approach with ...
Mechanisms and Genomic Patterns of Reproductive Isolation in Xiphophorus Fishes
Learned mate choice has a fundamental role in population dynamics and speciation. Social learning plays a ubiquitous role in shaping how individuals make decisions. Learning does not act on a blank slate, however, and ...
From Painting to Pixels: Expansionist Topoi in American Visual Culture
Digital representations of the mythic West abound, from Rockstar Games’ popular open-world Western, Red Dead Redemption, to free iPad and iPhone apps (Oregon Settler, Trade Nations Frontier). These virtual re-enactments ...
Thresholding Multivariate Regression and Generalized Principal Components
As high-dimensional data arises from various fields in science and technology, traditional multivariate methods need to be updated. Principal component analysis and reduced rank regression are two of the most important ...

(Texas A&M University, 1966)
Surface Modification of Layered Zirconium Phosphates: A Novel Pathway to Multifunctional Nanomaterials
The surface functionalization of inorganic nano particles for improved and novel applications is the topic of this dissertation; specifically the surface modification of inorganic layered materials. In this case the goal ...
Algorithms for Multiple Vehicle Routing Problems
Surveillance and monitoring applications require a collection of heterogeneous vehicles to visit a set of targets. This dissertation considers three fundamental routing problems involving multiple vehicles that arise in ...
The Function of the acr Genes in Phenazine Regulation and Transport in the Biological Control Strain Pseudomonas Chlororaphis 30-84
The genes acrA and acrB, first identified in Escherichia coli encode components of a Resistance-Nodulation-Cell Division (RND) efflux system shown to be important for resistance to multiple antimicrobials. In Pseudomonas ...
The Effect of Technological Progress, Demand, and Energy Policy on Agricultural and Bioenergy Markets
Agricultural technological progress is a key factor in our ability to meet future demand growth for consumers and biofuel usage. This study investigates the consequences of agricultural technological progress, biofuel ...
Flow Control Devices in SAGD Completion Design: Enhanced Heavy Oil/Bitumen Recovery Through Improved Thermal Efficiencies
The volume of heavy oil/bitumen recoverable worldwide is vast in quantity but difficult and energy intensive to extract due to the high in-situ oil viscosity of these unconventional plays. One method of thermal recovery, ...
