#### The Identification of FAK-Scaffold Inhibitors Targeted to Y925

(2017)

Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase. FAK maintains survival and migratory signaling in cancer and promotes tumor progression. The overexpression of FAK in cancer has been evaluated using multiple ...

#### Density functional theory (DFT) studies of hydrogen rich solids and boron carbide under extreme conditions

(2017)

Since the first prediction that compressed hydrogen would metallize in 1935 and the further prediction that the metallic allotrope would be a superconductor at high temperatures, metallic hydrogen has been termed the “holy ...

#### Adaptive Radial Basis Function ENO and WENO Methods for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

(2017)

A hyperbolic conservations law is a hyperbolic partial differential equation which describes the movement of conserved quantities. A special property of hyperbolic conservation laws is that discontinuities could be developed ...

#### The theory of k-MRS functions

(2017)

This paper explores homogeneous k -monomial rotation symmetric ( k -MRS) functions and sums of such functions. We begin by expanding on the work of Johns and Cusick to give an alternate proof that the equivalence of cubic ...

#### On Cocycle Superrigidity Problem for Algebraic Actions

(2017)

In this thesis, we study cocycle superrigidity problem for algebraic actions in both measurable setting and continuous setting. After introduction to this topic in the first chapter, we review some important concepts used ...

#### On Cocycle Superrigidity Problem for Algebraic Actions

(2017)

In this thesis, we study cocycle superrigidity problem for algebraic actions in both measurable setting and continuous setting. After introduction to this topic in the first chapter, we review some important concepts used ...

#### Relative Sofic Entropy

(2017)

In this dissertation, we focus on generalizing the concept of relative entropy of dynamical systems to sofic group actions. We introduce conditional sofic entropy of both topological and measurable dynamical systems. When ...

#### Non-equilibrium Effects in Dissipative Strongly Correlated Systems

(2017)

Non-equilibrium phenomena in strongly correlated lattice systems coupling to dissipative environment are studied. Novel physics arises when strongly correlated system is driven out of equilibrium by external fields. Dramatic ...

#### Synthesis of Well-Defined Phema Linear Polymers and Phema- g-Pla Brush Polymers

(2017)

The overall objective of the thesis research is to synthesize well-defined brush polymers. The research efforts were focused on the development of innovatively designed synthetic route to exert precise control of the ...

#### Copper-Catalyzed Three Component Intermolecular Carboamination of Alkenes Utilizing Potassium Alkyltrifluoroborate Salts

(2017)

Metal catalyzed alkene difunctionalizations are highly useful transformations in synthetic chemistry. However, constructing carbon-carbon and carbon-nitrogen bonds in a single step still proves to be a challenging problem ...
