  • Wang, Yifan, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this thesis, we use string theory constructions and dualities to explore various features of interacting quantum field theories. We begin with an overview in Chapter 1, of past and recent developments in quantum field ...
  • Pickrell, M. M. (Mark Manley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976)
  • Molnar, Momchil Emil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    We present an automated algorithm for the detection of periodic sources in the K2 data sets. Fast discreet Fourier transformations are used to compute the Fourier spectra of the targets and two different detection algorithms ...
  • Moore, Sam, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    An alternative method for locking a second-harmonic generation (SHG) cavity on resonance is described and implemented. The usual method, Pound-Drever-Hall locking, is prone to long-term power fluctuations from power ...
  • Narayanan, Sruthi Annapoorny (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    There are indications that weak magnetic fields originating in the early Universe and magnified via magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) processes could cause perturbations in the thermodynamic state of the gas in the intergalactic ...
