  • Gazak, Jonathan Zachary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    GRS 1915+105 is an accreting black-hole in a binary system located in the Milky Way. It is one of the most variable X-ray sources known, and 12 variability classifications have been defined, many of which appear to be ...
  • Throwe, William (William Thomas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Orbits around black holes evolve due to gravitational-wave emission, losing energy and angular momentum, and driving the orbiting body to slowly spiral into the black hole. Recent theoretical advances now make it possible ...
  • Grabowska, Dorota M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Holography is a novel approach to modeling strongly interacting many-body systems. By reorganizing the quantum many-body problem into an equivalent problem in classical gravity, holography makes it relatively easy, for ...
  • Van Tilburg, Ken (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, I explore aspects of a new jet shape - N-subjettiness - designed to identify boosted hadronically-decaying objects (with a particular focus on tagging top quarks) at particle accelerators such as the Large ...
  • Corless, Virginia Leigh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis, I design and construct a Monte-Carlo gravitational lensing simulation that statistically studies the strong lensing of extended galactic sources by dark matter distributions in galaxy clusters, using recent ...
  • Yi, Ming, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The nature and behavior of electronic states in high temperature superconductors are the center of much debate. The pseudogap state, observed above the superconducting transition temperature Tc, is seen by some as a precursor ...
  • Payne, Joshua Estes (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, I designed and implemented a particle-in-cell (PIC) code on a graphical processing unit (GPU) using NVIDA's Compute Unified Architecture (CUDA). The massively parallel nature of computing on a GPU nessecitated ...
  • Gessel, David Jacob (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1990)
  • Pradipta, Rezy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A series of incoherent scatter radar (ISR) observation were conducted at the Arecibo Observatory from December 27, 2005 until January 3, 2006. From plasma line measurements that were taken during this radar campaign, we ...
  • Bright, Molly (Molly Gallogly) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The Standard Model of particle physics predicts the existence of the "Unitary Triangle," which graphically relates the matrix elements of the Cabbibo Kobayashi Maskawa matrix and describes the strength of transformations ...
  • Katz, Rena J. (Rena Jenelle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Energy levels of the valence electron of a single trapped ⁸⁸Sr+ ion can be harnessed as an effective qubit for quantum information processing. The qubit transition to a metastable energy state can be stimulated by a laser ...
  • Zahniser, Russell, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    When a jet of water is in free fall, it rapidly breaks up into drops, since a cylinder of water is unstable. This and other problems involving the form of a volume of water bound by surface tension have yielded a wealth ...
  • Strachan, John Paul, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis describes tracking objects with low-level electric fields. A physical model is presented that describes the important interactions and the required mathematical inversions. Sophisticated hardware used to perform ...
  • Dorfman, Seth E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    On December 25, 2004, a large-scale ionospheric plasma bubble was observed over Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, inducing significant range spreading on ionograms. This phenomena may be explained by means of the E x B ...
  • Sahin, Timur Cemal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Dark matter makes up approximately 22% of the energy density of the universe and as much as 83% of its matter composition. Despite its ubiquitous nature, it remains incredibly difficult to detect due to the weakness of its ...
  • Zaheer, Saad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We study the electromagnetic Casimir interaction of a metallic compact object with a compact and bounded metallic surface in which it is contained. We express the interaction energy in terms of the objects' scattering ...
  • Diab, Kenan S. (Kenan Sebastian) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, I will explore some of the ways the information-theoretic properties of quantum many-body systems can be analyzed. I do this in two different settings. First, I will describe an approach to the "scrambling ...
  • Rosenhaus, Vladimir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis studies intersecting brane models, which are a class of quasi-realistic compactifications of string theory. Techniques are developed for exploring the complete space of intersecting brane models on an orientifold. ...
  • Grandke, Annemarie N. (Annemarie Nina), 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
  • Demir, Nasser Soliman, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, we present the results of studies of physical properties in three classes of novel carbon-based materials: carbon aerogels, single-walled carbon nanotubes, and high thermal conductivity graphitic foams. The ...
