Testbed development of rf channel emulator for wireless networks.

Tremendous growth in wireless technology comes with added complexity in testing these networks before deploying them for commercial use. For many years, testbeds and simulators were the ideal choices for performance analysis. However due to their limitations with respect to accuracy, complexity and

Outcomes in General Internal Medicine Inpatients.

This thesis describes 3 thematically linked projects exploring outcomes for hospitalized medical patients. Project 1 examines the accuracy of various models in predicting post-discharge outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF). Project 2 explores the relationship between teaching and non-teachin

An examination of the cue-reactivity of reports of gambling wins.

The present study explored the cue-reactivity associated with reports of gambling wins. A 61-item questionnaire administered via the Internet collected information on gambling behaviours, effects of reports of large gambling wins, and thoughts that might underlie either the activation or the inhibit

Studies of an end-on inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (ICP-AES) and a direct sample insertion inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometer (DSI-ICP-AES).

The studies undertaken in this thesis are the effect of plasma operating parameters on analyte signals in Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES) with axial viewing plasma and Direct Sample Insertion Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (DSI-ICP-AES), the

Synthesis and NMR studies of neuraminidase inhibitors.

Influenza is an enveloped virus, consisting of two surface glycoproteins, neuraminidase and hemagglutinin. The viral receptor is a glycoconjugate on which sialic acid is the terminal sugar. Neuraminidase catalyses the cleavage of the terminal sialic acid from the adjoining carbohydrate moiety, there

Evaluation and design of potential inhibitors of pyroglutamyl aminopeptidase.

A fluorometric enzyme assay was developed to evaluate the ability of a variety of compounds to bind and/or inhibit pyroglutamyl aminopeptidase. Among these compounds were a series of chloromethyl ketone analogs of thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) which had been shown to possess TRH-like activity

Multi-disease genes: The future of genetic counseling.

It is expected by the completion of the Human Genome Project more than 100,000 human disease genes will be discovered, resulting in an increase of genes available for genetic testing. Unfortunately, not enough is known about the meaning of this genetic information and the implications of genetic tes

Propagation and breaking of nonlinear internal gravity waves.

Internal gravity waves grow in amplitude as they propagate upwards in a non-Boussinesq fluid and weakly nonlinear effects develop due to interactions with an induced horizontal mean flow. In this work, a new derivation for this wave-induced mean flow is presented and nonlinear Schrodinger equations
