A Quantitative Analysis of Promontory Cave 1: An Archaeological Study on Population Size, Occupation Span, Artifact Use-life, and AccumulationDownload
Promontory Cave 1 on Great Salt Lake, Utah exhibits an incredible level of preservation rarely seen at archaeological sites. The high proportion of perishable materials provides a unique opportunity to study cultural remains that are usually lost to taphonomic processes. Extensive radiocarbon...
Bare-bones Paleontology: An Examination of the Systematic Methods Used in Vertebrate Paleontology and their Congruence with Avian IchnotaxonomyDownload
Data used in the systematic paleontology of extinct vertebrates is limited to what can be collected from detailed comparisons of preserved anatomy. This restricts vertebrate paleontologists to those characters preserved on osteological specimens. Furthermore, parataxonomies such as ichnotaxonomy...
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) measures the dynamic activity of each voxel of a brain. This dissertation addresses the challenge of learning a diagnostic classifier that uses a subject’s fMRI data to distinguish subjects with neuropsychiatric disorders from healthy controls. fMRI...
With the development of modern technology, researchers in various fields are equipped with powerful tools to collect ultrahigh dimensional data, where the number of features p could grow exponentially with the sample size n. It is challenging to extract useful information due to the huge number...
How many fossils, how to count them, and where to collect them: Examinations of the most appropriate methods for community paleoecological researchDownload
Paleoecology researchers have employed an array of methods for collecting, counting, and identifying fossil data; no standard protocol exists for conducting community paleoecological research. The lack of a standard protocol could lead to inaccurate conclusions. In addition, paleocommunity...
