    • Background subtraction by disparity warping 

      Liu, John H. (John Hau-Han), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    • The backpropagated field approach to multidimensional velocity inversion 

      Esmersoy, Cengiz (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
    • Backroom space allocation in retail stores 

      Das, Lita (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
      Space is one of the most scarce, expensive, and difficult to manage resources in urban retail establishments. A typical retail space broadly consists of two areas, the customer facing frontroom area and the backroom area, ...
    • Bacteria attenuation modeling and source identification in Kranji Catchment and Reservoir 

      Kerigan, Kathleen B; Yeager, Jessica M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
      This study was performed to determine the bacterial loading of Kranji Catchment and Reservoir and how this will affect planned recreational use of Kranji Reservoir. Field and laboratory work was conducted in Singapore ...
    • Bacteria in shear flow 

      Marcos, Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
      Bacteria are ubiquitous and play a critical role in many contexts. Their environment is nearly always dynamic due to the prevalence of fluid flow: creeping flow in soil, highly sheared flow in bodily conduits, and turbulent ...
    • Bacteria mediated heat sinks 

      Hong, Vu Anh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
      Many applications, such as laser diode technology, utilize components (eg. resistors) which have performance characteristics heavily dependent on temperature, and therefore, maintaining constant temperature is essential ...
    • Bacteria-targeting nanoparticles for managing infections 

      Radovic-Moreno, Aleksandar Filip (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
      Bacterial infections continue to be a significant concern particularly in healthcare settings and in the developing world. Current challenges include the increasing spread of drug resistant (DR) organisms, the side effects ...
    • Bacterial adhesion in structured environments 

      Friedlander, Ronn S. (Ronn Samuel) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
      Biofilms-surface-bound communities of microbes-are a major medical concern, as they can be sources of infection that are difficult to eradicate. Their formation starts with the attachment of bacteria to available surfaces-often ...
    • A bacterial algorithm for surface mapping using a Markov modulated Markov chain model of bacterial chemotaxis 

      Kharbouch, Alaa Amin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
      Bacterial chemotaxis is the locomotory response of bacteria to chemical stimuli. E. coli movement can be described as a biased random walk, and it is known that the general biological or evolutionary function is to increase ...
    • Bacterial genes and genome dynamics in the environment 

      Timberlake, Sonia C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
      One of the most marvelous features of microbial life is its ability to thrive in such diverse and dynamic environments. My scientific interest lies in the variety of modes by which microbial life accomplishes this feat. ...
    • Bacterial influence on uranium oxidation reduction reactions : implications for environmental remediation and isotopic composition 

      Mullen, Lisa Maureen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
      The bacterial influence on the chemistry and speciation of uranium has some important impacts on the environment, and can be exploited usefully for the purposes of environmental remediation of uranium waste contamination. ...
    • Bad data suppression in state estimation, with applications to problems in power. 

      Merrill, Hyde McCune (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1972)
    • Baffle material characterization for Advanced LIGO 

      Hunt, Cassandra R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      The transition to Advanced LIGO introduces new sensitivity requirements for the LIGO interferometers. When light scatters away from the main laser beam, then scatters off the beam tube and returns to the main beam, noise ...
    • Bagasse particle board: a production study and investment analysis. 

      Sanchez, Ronald Allen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1972)
    • Baiting for defense against stealthy attacks on cyber-physical systems 

      Flamholz, David B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
      The goal of this thesis is to develop a defense methodology for a cyber-physical system (CPS) by which an attempted stealthy cyber-attack is detected in near real time. Improvements in networked communication have enabled ...
    • A Bakery : in search of appropriate form 

      Kuzmic, Katri (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
      During the process of designing a building there occurs the continuous task of finding the forms, materials and structure that are fit to the particular building or situation at hand. It is the intent to combine these ...
    • Balance : Lancaster County's tragedy 

      Gingrich, Valerie (Valerie J.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
      Lancaster County, Pennsylvania residents are proud of their agricultural heritage. They do not want to see their farmland disappear. But the County continues to be developed into residential subdivisions. This thesis ...
    • The balance of local culture and global economic development : the case of the Nyarugenge Heritage Village in Kigali, Rwanda 

      Ndengeyingoma, Billy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
