MIT Theses


This collection of MIT Theses in DSpace contains selected theses and dissertations from all MIT departments. Please note that this is NOT a complete collection of MIT theses. To search all MIT theses, use Barton, MIT Libraries' catalog.

MIT's DSpace contains more than 40,000 theses completed at MIT dating as far back as the mid 1800's. Theses in this collection have been scanned by Document Services or submitted in electronic format by thesis authors. Since 2004 all new Masters and Ph.D. theses will be scanned and will be added to this collection after degrees are awarded.

If you have questions about MIT theses in DSpace, contact Document Services. See also Access & Availability Questions or About MIT Theses in DSpace.

If you are a recent MIT graduate and would like to add your thesis to the theses in DSpace, see Add Your Thesis to MIT's DSpace for instructions. All theses scanned by the MIT Libraries are scanned in black and white mode. Color content, active links, and searchable text will only be preserved in the online version of your thesis if you have given an electronic copy (PDF) to the MIT Libraries.

  • Belinkov, Yonatan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis addresses the problem of Prepositional Phrase (PP) attachment disambiguation, a key challenge in syntactic parsing. In natural language sentences, a PP may often be attached to several possible candidates. While ...
  • Bhardwaj, Siddharth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Generation of high-order harmonics has emerged as a powerful technique for the generation of broadband coherent radiation in the EUV regime. This has lead to the development of table-top EUV sources that can produce ...
  • Bodnari, Andreea (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Natural language is a pervasive human skill not yet fully achievable by automated computing systems. The main challenge is understanding how to computationally model both the depth and the breadth of natural languages. In ...
  • Celiker, Hasan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Experiments to date probing adaptive evolution have predominantly focused on studying a single species or a pair of species in isolation. In nature, on the other hand, species evolve within complex communities, interacting ...
  • Chen, Hung-Wen, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Many applications require femtosecond lasers of high repetition rate. In the time domain, a higher repetition rate means more pulses in a fixed time period. For nonlinear bio-optical imaging in which photo-induced damage ...
