<p> This thesis gives basic properties of the newly defined topological properties local paracompactness and strong local paracompactness. An example is given to show that they do not coincide in T2 spaces; another example...
Theory of Spin Waves in the Heavy Rare Earth Metals
<p> A theory of spin waves for the spin structures found in the rare earth metals of hcp crystal structure is described. The theory is developed for the conical spiral spin structure which contains the planar sp...
Lateral Loading of Small-Scale Shear Wall Buildings with Floor Slabs
<p> This thesis describes the construction and testing of small-scale shear wall buildings with rigidly connected floor slabs, but without wall openings. A micro-concrete material was used in the casting of both the basic ...
The Photochemistry of some Substituted 2-Cyclohexenones and the Excited States Involved
<p> The photoadditions of 3-phenyl-2-cyclohexenone to bicyclo [2.2.1] hepta-
2,5-diene, bicyclo [2.2.1] hept-2-ene and cyclopentene have been studied. In all cases cis fused cyclobutane products were obtained. Quenching and sensitization...
Structural Analysis and Microstructural Examination of the Catoctin Formation in the South Mountain Anticline, Maryland
<p> Microstructural as well as structural analysis of amygdules and groundmass of the Catoctin F·ormation located in the overturned western limb of the South Mountain anticline permit interpretation pertaining to the nature of ...
MacSphere is·McMaster University’s Institutional Repository (IR). The purpose of an IR is to bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. The research and scholarly output included in MacSphere has been selected and deposited by the individual university departments and centres on campus.
To contribute to McMaster's Institutional Repository, please sign on to MacSphere with your MAC ID. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication.
Students wishing to deposit their PhD or Masters thesis, please follow the instructions outlined by the School of Graduate Studies.
