  • Melissa, Matthew (Matthew J.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Populations are subject to mutations conferring beneficial effects, as well as mutations conferring deleterious effects. Even if deleterious mutations occur much more frequently than beneficial mutations, the contribution ...
  • Archer, Lucy Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this thesis I made a study of the properties of reactively sputtered ultra-thin films of niobium nitride (NbN) and niobium titanium nitride (NbTiN). Using Variable Angle Spectral Ellipsometry (VASE), I found that the ...
  • Geller, Sarah (Sarah R.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this thesis, I have addressed the question of how to calculate the total relativistic mass for a patch of a spherically-symmetric matter-dominated spacetime of negative curvature. This calculation provides the open-universe ...
  • Cristea-Platon, Tudor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    The realm of the dynamics of bouncing droplets is a rather recent development in physics and mathematics. Just over a decade old, it holds many exciting avenues of exploration. In this thesis, I will present my research ...
  • Montag, Peter Katsumi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this thesis, I analyzed the behavior of the plasma instability known as the tearing mode in parameter regimes relevant to magnetically-confined fusion plasmas. This included a derivation of the relevant equations and a ...
