• #### Magnetic topological semimetal phase with electronic correlation enhancement in SmSbTe ﻿

(Wiley, 2021-08-24)
The ZrSiS family of compounds hosts various exotic quantum phenomena due to the presence of both topological nonsymmorphic Dirac fermions and nodal-line fermions. In this material family, the LnSbTe (Ln = lanthanide) ...
• #### Social support, religiosity, and depression among older caregivers of HIV/AIDS children in rural Namibia ﻿

(Routledge, 2021-08-20)
The study of older caregiving is emerging as an important area of research in HIV endemic communities. This study explored the role of social support/network and religiosity in predicting depressive symptoms among older ...
• #### Response of aquatic microinvertebrates within isolated tallgrass prairie stream pools to experimental drying ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
Intermittent streams experience varying drying and rewetting cycles that influence the organisms that are able utilize these systems. These disturbance regimes are expected to be greatly impacted by climate change and other ...
• #### Applied topological data analysis to El-Niño Southern Oscillation ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the most powerful climate phenomena that can change global air circulation, affecting temperature and rainfall around the planet. ENSO has three phases: El Niño and La ...
• #### Ricci tensor under conformal change of metric as an elementary obstruction to certain Einstein metrics ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro, (1853-1925) Bologna, was an Italian mathematician and a professor at the University of Padua from 1880 -1925. He was the rst to introduce the systematic theory of tensor analysis in 1887 with a ...
• #### Urinary follicle-stimulating hormone glycoform analysis by automated western blot ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is one of the glycoprotein hormones synthesized and secreted by the gonadotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland. In females, FSH stimulates ovarian follicular development and ...
• #### On the inverse gravimetry problem with minimal data ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
In this dissertation we considered the inverse source problem $\Delta u = \mu,$ where lim $u (x) = 0$ as |x| goes to $\infty$ and $\mu$ is zero outside a bounded domain $\Omega$. The inverse problem of gravime- try is to ...
• #### Improving treatment-seeking attitudes by reducing treatment seeking stigma via a web-based program ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
Despite the potential benefits of mental health treatment, a substantial proportion of those with a diagnosable mental health disorder do not seek treatment, and treatment-seeking stigma has been cited as a major reason. ...
• #### Positive (p, n)-intermediate scalar curvature and Gromov-Lawson cobordism ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-08)
In this thesis we consider a well known construction due to Gromov, Lawson, and Gajer which allows for the extension of a metric of positive scalar curvature over the trace of a surgery in codimension at least 3 to a ...
• #### Childhood maltreatment and the developing brain: Profiles of executive function and the predictive value of maltreatment variables ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
There is a strong reciprocal link between environmental experiences and children’s cognitive development (Brocki & Bohlin, 2004). One such environmental experience, with a widely recognized negative impact on cognitive ...
• #### Level-up! Identifying ways to make video games more accessible for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
This study examines the impact of using tactile, directional cues in a 3D, third-person shooter video game. Depending on the condition, the game used audio, visual, and haptic cues to provide information about when and ...
• #### A pseudo restricted maximum likelihood estimator under multivariate simple tree order restriction and an algorithm ﻿

(Wichita State University, 2021-07)
The minimum distance projection of a given matrix $X \in R^{pxq}$ onto the order restricted cone in an appropriately defined inner product system, $\pi(X|C_{pxq}),$ plays an important role in order restricted statistical ...
• #### Perception during use of force and the likelihood of firing upon an unarmed person ﻿

(Nature Research, 2021-06-25)
Stress can impact perception, especially during use-of-force. Research efforts can thus advance both theory and practice by examining how perception during use-of-force might drive behavior. The current study explored the ...
• #### Seasonal variation of multiple-muon cosmic ray air showers observed in the NOvA detector on the surface ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2021-07-30)
We report the rate of cosmic ray air showers with multiplicities exceeding 15 muon tracks recorded in the NOvA Far Detector between May 2016 and May 2018. The detector is located on the surface under an overburden of 3.6 ...
• #### Educational outcomes of gender-diverse youth: A national population-based study ﻿

(Sage Publications, 2021-08-16)
Despite the growing population of youth identifying with a transgender or nonbinary gender identity, research on gender-diverse individuals’ educational outcomes is limited. This study takes advantage of the first nationally ...
