#### Developing molecular docking methods to model protein interactions

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] In many cellular processes, proteins carry out their functions through interacting with other molecules, such as small compounds (i.e. ligands), peptides ...

#### An informal history of **astronomy** at the University of Missouri-Columbia

(Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, University of Missouri - Columbia,, 1981)

#### Computational studies of methane adsorption in nanoporous carbon

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)

In this thesis we have completed computational studies using Grand Canonical Monte Carlo on the adsorption of methane into a graphitic nanoporous adsorbent with slit-shaped pores. Simulations were done at a temperature of ...

#### The reversibility of the adsorption of methane-methyl mercaptan mixtures in nanoporous carbon

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)

Methane is the main constituent of natural gas (NG). As fuel for vehicular applications NG requires sorbents that allow efficient, reversible and safe storage at room temperature and moderate pressure. To enable easy human ...

#### Theoretical and computational modeling of the dynamics of multicellular and lipid membrane systems

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

This dissertation presents two research projects that apply theoretical and computational modeling to (1) describe and predict the formation and shape evolution of three-dimensional (3D) bioprinted tissue constructs, and ...

#### Tidal acceleration of ultrarelativistic particles

(EDP Sciences, 2005-05)

We investigate the motion of free relativistic particles relative to the ambient medium around a gravitationally
collapsed system. If the relative speed exceeds a critical value given by c/√2, the gravitational tidal ...

#### Ultrarelativistic motion: inertial and tidal effects in Fermi coordinates

(Institute of Physics, 2004-12)

Fermi coordinates are the natural generalization of inertial Cartesian
coordinates to accelerated systems and gravitational fields. We study themotion
of ultrarelativistic particles and light rays in Fermi coordinates ...

#### Relativistic motion of spinning particles in a gravitational field

(arXiv, 2005-05)

The relative motion of a classical relativistic spinning test particle is studied with respect to a nearby free test particle in the gravitational field of a rotating source. The effects of the spincurvature coupling force ...

#### Many-body contributions to spin relaxation in semiconductors

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)

relaxation for various systems. More importantly, we show how spin relaxation can affect other

**physical**observables, such as spin diffusion. By investigating this spin relaxation mechanism in a dilute magnetic semiconductor, we include the effects of spin...#### Tidal dynamics in Kerr spacetime

(Institute of Physics, 2006-05)

The motion of free nearby test particles relative to a stable equatorial circular
geodesic orbit about a Kerr source is investigated. It is shown that the nonlinear
generalized Jacobi equation can be transformed in this ...

#### Dynamics of Relativistic Flows

(arXiv, 2004-05)

Dynamics of relativistic outflows along the rotation axis of a Kerr black hole is investigated using a simple model that takes into account the relativistic tidal force of the central source as well as the Lorentz force ...

#### The X-Ray Luminosity Function of Nearby Rich and Poor Clusters of Galaxies:A Cosmological Probe

(American Astronomical Society, 1999-05)

In this Letter, we present a new determination of the local (z · 0.09) X-ray luminosity function (XLF) using a large, statistical sample of 294 Abell clusters and the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. Despite the optical selection of ...

#### Sidney Kimmel Institute for Nuclear Renaissance (SKINR) Overview

(University of Missouri, 2013)

These slides support the oral presentation given by Dr. Graham K. Hubler.

#### The enigmatic thirteen micron feature

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)

Low and intermediate mass stars (0.8--8 solar masses) will eventually evolve into Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars and pulsate out their atmosphere into the space around them. That ejected material will eventually cool ...

#### Spacetime measurements in Kaluza-Klein gravity

(arXiv, 2000-05)

We extend the classical general relativistic theory of measurement to include the possibility of existence of higher dimensions. The intrusion of these dimensions in the spacetime interval implies that the inertial mass ...

#### Jahn-Teller coupling and double exchange in the two-site Van Vleck-Kanamori model

(American Institute of Physics, 1999-04)

The effect of the dynamical Jahn-Teller coupling on the Anderson-Hasegawa double exchange (DE) in the manganites is studied in a two-site model taking into account the double degeneracy of the eg orbitals and their coupling ...

#### Holonomy and gravitomagnetism

(American Institute of Physics, 2002-01)

We analyse parallel transport of a vector field around an equatorial orbit in the Kerr and stationary axisymmetric spacetimes that are reflection symmetric about their equatorial planes. As in the Schwarzschild spacetime, ...
