      The shape of the temporal bone of the adult human cranium, specifically the mastoid region, is documented widely in past literature as a measure of sexual dimorphism within and among human populations. Yet, past research ...
    • Quantifying the profit in crossbreeding beef cattle species 

      Birney, Cole (Wichita State University, 2019-05)
      Beef cattle are an important part of everyday life for many Americans. This is why it is important that beef cattle producers are able to maximize their profits. One way they can do that is by using the proper crossbreed. ...
    • Quantitative analysis of frame inter-arrival times in saturated ad hoc networks 

      Chandna, Nidhi (Wichita State University, 2011-05)
      Medium Access Control (MAC) delays increase the frame inter-arrival time on the destination node in saturated ad hoc networks. With the increase in the network size more and more nodes contend for the medium which increases ...
    • The quantitative analysis of medium access delays in saturated ad hoc networks and their impact on the packet service-time 

      Paradi, Santosh (Wichita State University, 2010-12)
      This thesis presents a quantitative analysis of medium access control (MAC) delays in saturated ad hoc networks and their impact on node packet service-time. First, the medium access delay at an ad hoc node was modeled in ...
    • Quantum neural networks 

      Nguyen, Nam H. (Wichita State University, 2020-05)
