• #### Oak expansion in the Chautauqua Hills Kansas: a regional assessment of historic change ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2012-05)
Woody plant expansion into grasslands and savannas is a globally occurring process which can cause loss of biodiversity and alter biogeochemical cycles. The Chautauqua Hills, in southeast Kansas, is the northernmost extent ...
• #### Oasis ﻿

(Kraft Books Limited, 1996)
• #### Object oriented router simulator ﻿

(International Society for Computers and Their Applications, 2001-08)
• #### Object recall from natural-language descriptions for autonomous robotic grasping ﻿

(IEEE, 2020-01-20)
Humans acquire grasping skills through repeated interaction with the objects; and they internalize the knowledge of various physical attributes of such objects. Even blindfolded, humans can reasonably estimate a suitable ...
• #### Object relations predicts borderline personality disorder symptoms beyond emotional dysregulation, negative affect, and impulsivity ﻿

(American Psychological Association, 2017-01)
Many studies have determined that the traits of emotional dysregulation, negative affect, and impulsivity are the strongest predictors of borderline personality disorder (BPD). Although psychodynamic, empirically supported ...
• #### Objective and perceptual measures of physical health, nutrition and hydration relative to swallowing function in self-reported healthy older adults in a continying care community ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2012-05)
The onset of dysphagia (swallowing difficulty) is associated with increasing age and the diseases that frequently occur with increasing age. Dysphagia increases the risk of dehydration and malnutrition with subsequent ...
• #### Objective function weight selection for sequential low-thrust orbit-raising optimization problem ﻿

(Univelt Inc., 2019-01)
In this paper, we consider the low-thrust orbit-raising problem formulated as a sequence of optimal control sub-problems. This formulation is helpful in rapid and robust generation of geocentric electric orbit-raising ...
• #### Oblique machining of uni directional carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2011-05)
Composite materials have a wide range of applications in aerospace and automotive industries due to the advantage of their tailorability when manufacturing. These materials are manufactured near net shape but post-production ...
• #### Observation of seasonal variation of atmospheric multiple-muon events in the NOvA Near Detector ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2019-06-28)
Using two years of data from the NOvA Near Detector at Fermilab, we report a seasonal variation of cosmic ray induced multiple-muon $(N\mu\ge2)$ event rates which has an opposite phase to the seasonal variation in the ...
• #### Observational study data inform the development of clinic-specific recommendations for implementation of Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2020-05-01)
BACKGROUND: Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a clinical practice to identify and prevent risky health behaviors related to substance misuse. In preparation for SBIRT implementation ...
• #### Observations on a preschooler's first experience with cross-cultural living ﻿

(Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society at Wichita State University, 1975)
• #### Observed peer victimization during early elementary school: continuity, growth, and relation to risk for child antisocial and depressive behavior ﻿

(Wiley-Blackwell, 2003-11)
The rate at which 266 boys and girls ages 5 to 7 years old were victimized by peers was observed on multiple occasions in kindergarten and first grade. Individual differences in victimization were observed at kindergarten ...
• #### Observer based, dead-beat controller with reduced sensitivity ﻿

(IEEE, 1988-06-15)
In this paper, a method is proposed for the design of linear, multivariable, discrete-time controllers with the following characteristics: 1. Constant-gain, minimal order observer - based control laws, 2. n-step, dead beat ...
• #### The observer-based controller design of discrete-time singularly perturbed systems ﻿

(IEEE, 1987-03-01)
A class of linear shift-invariant discrete-time singularly perturbed systems with inaccessible states is considered. A design technique is formulated by which the stabilizing controller can be formed through the controllers ...
• #### The observer-based controller design of the discrete-time singularly perturbed systems ﻿

(IEEE, 1986-06-18)
The dynamic feedback control for a class of linear shift-invariant discrete-time singularly perturbed systems with inaccessible states is considered through a separate observer-based controller design for two lower-dimensional ...
• #### Observer/controller with global practical stability for tracking in robots without velocity measurement ﻿

(Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2015-09)
In this work, a global practical stability (GPS) observer/controller is given for a revolute-jointed multiple degree of freedom robotic plant without velocity measurement and without knowledge of plant parameter values and ...
• #### Observing and inspecting cracks and dents in teeth using dye penetrant liquids without x-ray imaging ﻿

(IEEE, 2020-06-16)
Cracked teeth are generally observed in dental practice and are always nightmare to the patients due to their unpredictable symptoms and diagnostic conundrum for the dental practitioner due to their variable and unusual ...
• #### Observing the effect of infill shapes on the tensile characteristics of 3D printed plastic parts ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2016-12)
The term 3D printing is becoming more of a household term every day. From hobby enthusiasts to industrial production, 3D printing technology has generated great progress in the product and development sector. The ability ...
• #### Obstacle adaptive approaches for distributed task assignment in autonomous mobile robots ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2009-07)
It has many challenges to assign a group of mobile robots to individual targets according to the specific constraints. In addition to the group behavior constraints (one-toone or one-to-many) of the task assignment, some ...
