  • Lucas, Carly (2020-03)
    This project covers two semesters of creative research on movement affinities, which describe the way that an individual personally and instinctively moves in regard to dance improvisation. The research emphasizes that the ...
  • Wu, Xinye; Wang, Henry; Dickin, Clark; Bassette, Laura (2020)
    Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often exhibit motor deficits. It was unclear how children and adolescences with ASD develop their gait patterns due to the possible motor deficits. In order to understand the ...
  • Harvey, Jessica (2020)
    Music induced hearing loss is caused by exposure to excessive intensity levels of music. Marching band and pep band musicians are exposed to high intensity music levels as well as long durations due to multiple practices ...
  • Mattson, Deborah (2020)
    This landscape architecture project addresses the need for a nature-based therapeutic environment for children in one-on-one and group trauma therapy. The proposed design will be a therapeutic setting for experiential ...
  • Orozco, Luis Eduardo (2020-04)
    Forced migration is referred to as the forcible displacement of people to new regions. When highly educated professionals are forcibly displaced, they need to cope with the challenge of integrating into the host country’s ...
  • Bayer, Riley; Kotecki, Jerome (2020)
    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the suitability of the Diet Quality Screening Tool. We carried out a Suitability Assessment of Materials (SAM) with 30 health care professionals. SAM evaluates materials in six ...
  • Norton, Alexandra (2020-04-21)
    Homocystinuria is an autosomal recessive metabolic disease that leads to elevated levels of homocysteine due to functional defects in the enzyme cystathionine-beta-synthase (CBS). Globally, incidence is low, but appears ...
  • Asher, Sunaina (2019-11)
    This study evaluated the Conversation Pals program initiated by the Rinker Center for International Programs which connected the level 3 Chinese students in the Intensive English Institute (IEI) and the American students ...
  • Szajewski, Michael; Collins, Perry; Gibson, Angela; Grimes, Stephanie; Shaw, Matthew; Faust, Bradley (2020)
    Librarians at Ball State University designed and distributed a survey to libraries personnel at all public R2 research universities to assess the nature of university libraries’ engagement with digital scholarship, digital ...
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Dermer, Charles D.; Sturner, S.J. (2001)
    Subcluster interactions within clusters of galaxies produce shocks that accelerate nonthermal particles. We treat Fermi acceleration of nonthermal electrons and protons by injecting power-law distributions of particles ...
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Dermer, Charles D. (2004)
    We have developed a numerical model for the temporal evolution of particle and photon spectra resulting from nonthermal processes at the shock fronts formed in merging clusters of galaxies. Fermi acceleration is approximated ...
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Dermer, Charles D. (2004)
    A numerical simulation model of the injection and cooling of nonthermal particles energized by shocks formed in merging clusters of galaxies is used to fit radio and X-ray data observed from the Coma cluster of galaxies. ...
  • Drukier, G.A.; Slavin, S.D.; Cohn, H.N.; Lugger, P.M.; Berrington, Robert C.; Murphy, B.W.; Seitzer, P.O. (1998-02)
    We present velocities for 230 stars in the outer parts of the globular cluster M15 measured with the Hydra multifiber spectrograph on the 3.5 m WIYN telescope. A new Bayesian technique is used for analyzing the data. The ...
  • Pierce, Michael J.; Berrington, Robert C. (2000-02-22)
    We present evidence for non-Gaussian velocity fields within the cores of luminous elliptical galaxies. This evidence is based on high signal-to-noise ratio, medium-resolution spectroscopy of the cores of early-type members ...
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Lugger, Phyllis M.; Cohn, Haldan N. (2002-05)
    We present 236 new radial velocities of galaxies in the cluster A2256 measured with the WIYN Hydra Multi-Object Spectrograph. Combined with the previous work of Fabricant, Kent, & Kurtz, we have velocities for a total of ...
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Dermer, Charles D. (2003-09-10)
    We have developed a numerical model for the temporal evolution of particle and photon spectra resulting from nonthermal processes at the shock fronts formed in merging clusters of galaxies. Fermi acceleration is approximated ...
  • Drukier, G.A.; Cohn, H.N.; Lugger, P.M.; Slavin, S.D.; Berrington, Robert C.; Murphy, B.W. (2007-02-07)
    We report the determination of high-accuracy radial velocities for 306 members of the globular cluster M92 using the Hydra multiobject spectrograph on the WIYN telescope. We have concentrated on stars outside of the central ...
  • Berrington, Robert C. (1991)
    From newly collected data at the Maria Mitchell Observatory, a new ephemeris of V801 Cygni is derived.
  • Berrington, Robert C.; Hall, Douglas S. (1994-05)
    Timings of primary eclipse up through 1992 are collected, plus a few overlooked in earlier studies. Analysis show that, after decreasing until approximately equals 1919 and increasing since then, the period has now started ...
  • Bode, Paul W.; Berrington, Robert C.; Cohn, Haldan N.; Lugger, Phyllis M. (1994-10)
    We report N-body simulations of the dynamical evolution of isolated clusters of 50 galaxies containing a dark matter component that comprises 90% of the cluster mass. For our adopted physical scaling, the line-of- sight ...
