    • Automated Gloss Mapping for Inferring Grammatical Properties 

      Lockwood, Michael
      This thesis describes a software system that maps glosses from interlinear glossed text (IGT) to an internally consistent set. This study hypothesizes that mapping glosses supports better inference of grammatical properties. ...
    • Automated Grammar Engineering for Verbal Morphology 

      Wax, David Allen (2014-04-30)
      This study examines the cross-linguistic potential for the automatic analysis of verbal morphology and creation of implemented formal grammars using the Grammar Matrix customization system and the rich linguistic resource ...
    • Automatic Characterization of Text Difficulty 

      Medero, Julie
      For the millions of U.S. adults who do not read well enough to complete day-to-day tasks, challenges arise in reading news articles or employment documents, researching health conditions, and a variety of other tasks. ...
    • Automatic Detection Of Language Levels in L2 English Learners 

      Podgornik, Stella M. (2012-08-10)
      This study analyzes different features which would enable classifiers to detect language levels in adult second language (L2) English Learners. Approximately 46 different speech samples from users speaking 15 different ...
    • Automatic measurement-based characterization of off-chip interconnect circuitry using lumped elements 

      Corey, Steven D (1997)
      As clock speeds of digital circuits continue to increase, the performance of board-level and package-level circuitry has become an important factor in digital design. The same is true in the consumer wireless communications ...
    • Automatic Scaffolding for Procedural Learning 

      Andersen, Erik
      A key challenge in education is how provide support that is tailored to the learner's individual needs. Effective teachers and curricula typically provide such support, often referred to as instructional scaffolding, through ...

    • Automatic sentence structure annotation for spoken language processing 

      Hillard, Dustin Lundring (2008)
      Increasing amounts of easily available electronic data are precipitating a need for automatic processing that can aid humans in digesting large amounts of data. Speech and video are becoming an increasingly significant ...
    • Automatic staged compilation 

      Philipose, Matthai (2005)
      The ability to optimize programs while they execute has become increasingly important in recent years. The primary challenge in such optimization is to keep the run-time overhead of optimization down while maximizing its ...
    • Automatic target recognition using location uncertainty 

      Liu, Gang, 1970- (2000)
      In this dissertation, we present a framework for using location uncertainty information in computer vision applications. This framework is applied to the military automatic target detection and recognition application. We ...
    • Automatic Video Analysis for Fisheries Survey Systems 

      Chuang, Meng-Che
      Fisheries survey with the use of cameras has drawn increasing attention since it enables a non-lethal and high-resolution sampling of the fish stocks. This dissertation strives to build an automatic video analysis system ...
    • Automating Stochastic Optimal Control 

      Dvijotham, Krishnamurthy (2014-04-30)
      Stochastic Optimal Control is an elegant and general framework for specifying and solving control problems. However, a number of issues have impeded its adoption in practical situations. In this thesis, we describe algorithmic ...
    • Automobile leasing in the United States: why do consumers lease cars? 

      Starkey, William Scott (1997)
      This dissertation examines the process by which consumers decide which automobile to purchase and how to finance their decision. Although prior research of automobile leasing assumed a sequential process in which household's ...
    • Autonomous Collision Avoidance and Mapping with a Quadrotor Using Panning Sonar Sensors 

      Deacon, Cody Owen (2014-04-30)
      Recent research and development of autonomous vehicles has expanded their capabilities in both military and civilian applications. A variety of missions including military and police surveillance, scientific reconnaissance, ...
    • Autonomy and relatedness in family interactions with depressed adolescents 

      Pavlidis, Karen (1998)
      Depression is a significant problem among adolescents, especially females. The current study investigated interaction patterns along the dimensions of autonomy and relatedness in families of depressed adolescents. Externalizing ...
    • Autoorthography: an exploration of identity poetics with poetry 

      Harrison, Aimee C.
      This paper explores a poetics of hiding through explorations of language, identity, and literary influences. My preliminary findings are presented as poetic prose, scientific descriptions and small memoirs. Though fragmented, ...
    • Autophagy, or not to be: The delicate balance of cellular self-digestion in neurons and neurodegeneration 

      Lassen, Amy Denise (2013-04-17)
      Neurons rely on autophagy for some critical functions, perhaps even more so than non-neuronal cells [4], but the process does not have such a clear-cut role in these cells. In some cases, autophagy can assist the cell by ...
    • Auxin-induced degradation dynamics and plant development 

      Guseman, Jessica Marie
      Development requires cells to send and receive information, often in the form of small molecules or peptides. An emerging theme in biology is that information can be encoded in the dynamics of signaling, not just in the ...
    • Avoiding State-Space Explosion in Multithreaded Programs with Input-Covering Schedules and Symbolic Execution 

      Bergan, Thomas (2014-04-30)
      This dissertation makes two high-level contributions: First, we propose an algorithm to perform symbolic execution of multithreaded programs from arbitrary program contexts. We argue that this can enable more efficient ...
