Algae control in bentgrass (Agrostis palustris) with DC5772 and Profile
(Virginia Tech, 1997) 
Algal nutrients :sources and patterns of flow in the Occoquan Watershed.
(Virginia Tech, 1975) 
The Algebra of Systems Biology
(Virginia Tech, 20100705)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
(Virginia Tech, 20050804)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
(Virginia Tech, 20040130)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 geometrystatistics dictionary. In particular, we study the ... 
Algebraic Geometry of Bayesian Networks
(Virginia Tech, 20040401)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 geometrystatistics dictionary. In particular, we study the ... 
Algebraic Methods for Modeling Gene Regulatory Networks
(Virginia Tech, 20120718)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
(Virginia Tech, 19900905)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
(Virginia Tech, 20110801)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 statediscrete ... 
Algebras of Toeplitz Operators
(Virginia Tech, 20060503)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 nonnormal operators that generate noncommutative C*algebras. ... 
An Algorithm and System for Measuring Impedance in DQ Coordinates
(Virginia Tech, 20100125)This dissertation presents work conducted at the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES) at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Chapter 1 introduces the concept of impedance measurement, and discusses ... 
An algorithm for a dollar bill recognition system
(Virginia Tech, 1988) 
An Algorithm for Influence Maximization and Target Set Selection for the Deterministic Linear Threshold Model
(Virginia Tech, 20140703)The problem of influence maximization has been studied extensively with applications that include viral marketing, recommendations, and feed ranking. The optimization problem, first formulated by Kempe, Kleinberg and Tardos, ... 
An Algorithm for multioutput Boolean logic minimization
(Virginia Tech, 1987) 
Algorithm for Spectral Matching of Earthquake Ground Motions using Wavelets and Broyden Updating
(Virginia Tech, 20130521)This study focuses on creating a spectral matching algorithm that modifies the real strong ground motions in the time domain by adding wavelets adjustment to the acceleration time series. The spectral matching procedure ... 
Algorithm Visualization: The State of the Field
(Virginia Tech, 20070419)We report on the state of the field of algorithm visualization, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Computer science educators seem to find algorithm and data structure visualizations attractive for their classrooms. ...

Algorithmic Approaches for Solving the Euclidean Distance Location and LocationAllocation Problems
(Virginia Tech, 19970708)This dissertation is concerned with the development of algorithmic approaches for solving the minisum location and locationallocation problems in which the Euclidean metric is used to measure distances. To overcome the ... 
Algorithmic Modifications to a Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Model of Containerships
(Virginia Tech, 20040506)When designing a ship, a designer often begins with â an ideaâ of what the ship might look like and what specifications the ship should meet. The multidisciplinary design optimization model is a tool that combines an ... 
An algorithmic solution to the minimax resource allocation problem with multimodal functions
(Virginia Tech, 19930915)see document 
Algorithms and Architectures for UWB Receiver Design
(Virginia Tech, 20070125)Impulsebased Ultra Wideband (UWB) radio technology has recently gained significant research attention for various indoor ranging, sensing and communications applications due to the large amount of allocated bandwidth and ...
