ZIteration: Efficient Estimation of Instantaneous Measures in TimeDependent MultiClass Systems
(19981015)Multipleclass multipleresource (MCMR) systems, where a class of customers requires a set of resources, are common. These systems are often analyzed under steadystate conditions. We describe a simple numericalanalytical ... 
ZPINNING TECHNIQUES AND MODELING IN COMPOSITE LAMINATES AND XCOR SANDWICH STRUCTURES
(2018)Zpinning is a technique where composite laminates are typically reinforced with metal or composite fiber pins inserted vertically into the laminate. The strength and fracture toughness of a Zpinned laminate is directly ... 
ZAUBERNACHT & MAHAGONNYSONGSPIEL: A PROJECTION DESIGN
(2019)The following thesis navigates the artistic ideas and concepts, design process, and execution of Paul Deziel’s projection design for Maryland Opera Studio at the University of Maryland – College Park’s production of ... 
Zd Symbolic Dynamics: Coding with an Entropy Inequality
(20060428)In this paper we discuss subsystem and coding results in Zd symbolic dynamics for d greater than 1. We prove that any Zd shift of finite type with positive topological entropy has a family of subsystems of finite type ... 
ZeoliteLoaded AlginateChitosan Hydrogel Beads as a Topical Hemostat
(2015)Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death after a traumatic injury. Commercial hemostatic agents exist, but have various disadvantages including high cost, short shelflives, or secondary tissue damage. Polymer ... 
A Zero  Dimensional Shock.
(1988)In this note, we add a new wrinkle to the very old problem of determining the motion of a mass point on a spring. We adopt a general model for the spring in which the force needed to compress it to zero length is infinite. ... 
ZeroCrossing and Noise Suppression in Auditory Wavelet Transformations
(1992)A common sequence of operations in the early stages of most biological sensory systems is a wavelet transform followed by a compressive nonlinearity. In this paper, we explore the contribution of these operations to the ... 
ZeroCrossing Rates of Some NonGaussian Processes with Application to Detection and Estimation
(1996)In this dissertation we present extensions of Rice's formula for the expected zerocrossing rate of a Gaussian process to some useful nonGaussian cases. In particular, we extend Rice's formula to the class of stationary ... 
A zeroone law for the existence of triangles in random key graphs
(2011)Random key graphs are random graphs induced by the random key predistribution scheme of Eschenauer and Gligor under the assumption of full visibility. For this class of random graphs we show the existence of a zeroone law ... 
Zeroone laws for connectivity in random key graphs
(20090114)The random key graph is a random graph induced by the random key predistribution scheme of Eschenauer and Gligor under the assumption of full visibility. We report on recent results concerning a conjectured zeroone law ... 
ZeroSum Game: GamerGate and the Networked Discourse of Hate
(2019)ZeroSum Game utilizes GamerGate – a 2014 harassment campaign against prominent women in the video game industry – to develop a close reading of networked publics in order to understand how power manifests and is enacted ... 
Zerovalent iron sand filtration reduces concentrations of viruslike particles and modifies virome community composition in reclaimed water used for agricultural irrigation
(Springer Nature, 20190411)Zerovalent iron sand filtration can remove multiple contaminants, including some types of pathogenic bacteria, from contaminated water. However, its efficacy at removing complex viral populations, such as those found in ... 
Zipf ’s Law and Its Correlation to the GDP of Nations
(2011)This study looks at power laws, specifically Zipf ’s law and Pareto distributions, previously used to describe city size distribution, income distribution within firms, and word distribution within languages and documents ... 
ZONE MODELING OF VERYLOWFREQUENCY UNSTABLE BEHAVIOR IN MECHANICALLYVENTILATED COMPARTMENT FIRES
(2015)A zone model is developed to simulate the oscillatory behavior occasionally observed in compartment fires. This oscillatory behavior is the result of an unstable coupling between the liquid fuel evaporation rate, the ... 
Zoned Desires: Prostitution, Family Politics, and Sexual Ideology in 20th Century Iran
(2014)This dissertation explores the regulation and representation of prostitution in Iran during the twentieth century, and concerns itself with dominant sexual ideologies during this period. While Tehran's redlight district, ... 
Zoomable User Interfaces for the Authoring and Delivery of Slide Presentations
(20031027)Millions of slide presentations are being authored and delivered with computer software every day. Yet much of the computer's power for these tasks remains untapped. Existing interaction techniques leave presenters wrestling ... 
Zoonotic Transmission of Influenza H9 subtype through Reassortment
(2013)Influenza A virus causes disease across a broad host range including avian and mammalian species. Most influenza viruses are found in wild aquatic birds, are of low consequence and refrain from zoonotic transmission. ... 
Zooplankton ecology in the Chesapeake Bay estuarine turbidity maximum, with emphasis on the calanoid copepod Eurytemora affinis
(20060427)The estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM) region of Chesapeake Bay, located near the limit of saltwater intrusion, is characterized by high total suspended solid (TSS) concentrations, high light attenuation, and high densities ... 
Zooplankton Population Dynamics in Relation to the Red Tide Dinoflagellate Karenia brevis on the West Florida Shelf of the Gulf of Mexico
(2012)Blooms of the toxin producing dinoflagellate <italic>Karenia brevis</italic> are common in the Gulf of Mexico, and while several studies have investigated nutrient sources and bloom processes, there has been less research ... 
Zubin: A Software Engineering Environment for Interconnecting Legacy Virtual Environments
(19981015)As the power and utility of virtual reality environments increases, so do the potential benefits found from combining several such environments. But doing so presents the developer with a host of difficult software ...
