    • Alcohol and College Students: Do Parents Matter? 

      Jeffes, Errin J. (Virginia Tech, 2001-05-09)
      Higher education in America has attempted to define the relationships it has with both students and parents for many years. While some argue that the philosophy of in loco parentis has seemingly disappeared, others suggest ...
    • Alcohol Expectancies and Self-Efficacy as Moderators of Social Anxiety and Alcohol Use Among College Students 

      Ehrhart, Ian James (Virginia Tech, 2005-11-14)
      Social anxiety is widely thought to be positively associated with alcohol use. However, these studies rely primarily on self-report of drinking behavior. This research aimed to further explore this research by assessing ...
    • Alcohol use among military personnel :an examination of demographic and sociological determinants 

      Li, Li (Virginia Tech, 1989-04-05)

      The objective of this thesis was to examine the demographic characteristics and the drink-related determinants of alcohol use among U.S. military personnel. The data were obtained from The 1985 Worldwide Survey of Alcohol ...

    • Alcoholism and family structure 

      Preli, Rona (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1987)
    • AlcoZone: An Adaptive Hypermedia based Personalized Alcohol Education 

      Bhosale, Devdutta (Virginia Tech, 2006-05-08)
      In our knowledge based economy, demand for better and effective learning has led to innovative instructional technologies. However, the one-size-fit-all approach taken by many e-Learning systems is not adequate to the ...
    • Alejandro Ricano's Idiots Contemplating the Snow: The Challenges of Translating Mexican Theater 

      Morris, Shana Michelle McDaniel (Virginia Tech, 2011-04-21)
      The purpose of this thesis is to introduce a young Mexican dramatist and to situate his plays within the context of contemporary Mexican theater, highlighting how Alejandro Ricano's work reflects and differs from his ...
    • Alexandria Textile Factory 

      Baldino, Jenna Michelle (Virginia Tech, 2008-05-08)
      The fabric of the city. A folded roof plane. Textile brick. The density of a weave. A fabric's structure. A hem's meter. The selvage. The fringe. Weaving. The connections drawn between textiles and architecture are ...
    • Alexandria Underwater Museum For Sunken Monuments 

      Hafiz, Dalia O (Virginia Tech, 2011-04-06)
      This thesis is a study of a journey in the deep mystery of the eastern harbor on the Mediterranean sea in the city of Alexandria. For Herodotus, the four major elements for civilizationâ s development overtime are water, ...
    • Alexandria University : an updated public learning institution and urban civic plaza 

      Bellido, Enrique (Virginia Tech, 1992-10-19)
      This project can be described in terms of the three main elements it explores: the relationship between the building and its context, the use of the structural system as an integral part of the architectural language and ...
    • Alfalfa growth on acid soil as influenced by Al, Ca, pH and Mo 

      Rechcigl, Jack E (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1986)
      Soil acidity is a major cause of low yields of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) in the southeastern United States. Two field experiments were conducted on an Ernest silt loam soil (fine—loamy, mixed, mesic Aquic Fragiudult) ...
    • The Algebra of Systems Biology 

      Veliz-Cuba, Alan A. (Virginia Tech, 2010-07-05)
      In order to understand biochemical networks we need to know not only how their parts work but also how they interact with each other. The goal of systems biology is to look at biological systems as a whole to understand ...
    • An Algebraic Approach to Reverse Engineering with an Application to Biochemical Networks 

      Stigler, Brandilyn Suzanne (Virginia Tech, 2005-08-04)
      One goal of systems biology is to predict and modify the behavior of biological networks by accurately monitoring and modeling their responses to certain types of perturbations. The construction of mathematical models ...
    • Algebraic Geometry of Bayesian Networks 

      Garcia-Puente, Luis David (Virginia Tech, 2004-01-30)
      We develop the necessary theory in algebraic geometry to place Bayesian networks into the realm of algebraic statistics. This allows us to create an algebraic geometry--statistics dictionary. In particular, we study the ...
    • Algebraic Geometry of Bayesian Networks 

      Garcia-Puente, Luis David (Virginia Tech, 2004-04-01)
      We develop the necessary theory in algebraic geometry to place Bayesian networks into the realm of algebraic statistics. This allows us to create an algebraic geometry--statistics dictionary. In particular, we study the ...
    • Algebraic Methods for Modeling Gene Regulatory Networks 

      Murrugarra Tomairo, David M. (Virginia Tech, 2012-07-18)
      So called discrete models have been successfully used in engineering and computational systems biology. This thesis discusses algebraic methods for modeling and analysis of gene regulatory networks within the discrete ...
    • An algebraic model of software evolution 

      Keller, Benjamin J.d (Virginia Tech, 1990-09-05)
      A model of the software evolution process, called the Abstraction Refinement Model, is described which builds on the algebraic influence of the Laws of Programming and the transformational Draco Paradigm. The result is an ...
    • Algebraic theory for discrete models in systems biology 

      Hinkelmann, Franziska Babette (Virginia Tech, 2011-08-01)
      This dissertation develops algebraic theory for discrete models in systems biology. Many discrete model types can be translated into the framework of polynomial dynamical systems (PDS), that is, time- and state-discrete ...
    • Algebras of Toeplitz Operators 

      Ordonez-Delgado, Bartleby (Virginia Tech, 2006-05-03)
      In this work we examine C*-algebras of Toeplitz operators over the unit ball in C^n and the unit polydisc in C^2. Toeplitz operators are interesting examples of non-normal operators that generate non-commutative C*-algebras. ...
