This Article presents a framework for interpreting Congress's September 18, 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), the central statutory enactment related to the war on terrorism. Although both constitutional ...
• #### Congressional Careers, Committee Assignments, and Seniority Randomization in the US House of Representatives ﻿

(Now Publishers, 2009)
This paper estimates the effects of initial committee seniority on the career histories of Democratic members of the House of Representatives from 1949 to 2006. When more than one freshman representative is assigned to a ...
• #### Conic Sampling: An Efficient Method for Solving Linear and Quadratic Programming by Randomly Linking Constraints within the Interior ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2012)
Linear programming (LP) problems are commonly used in analysis and resource allocation, frequently surfacing as approximations to more difficult problems. Existing approaches to LP have been dominated by a small group of ...
• #### Conjugate Fabry–Perot Cavity Pair for Improved Astro-Comb Accuracy ﻿

(Optical Society of America, 2012)
We propose a new astro-comb mode-filtering scheme composed of two Fabry–Perot cavities (coined “conjugate Fabry–Perot cavity pair”). Simulations indicate that this new filtering scheme makes the accuracy of astro-comb ...
• #### Conjunctival Inflammation in Thrombospondin-1 Deficient Mouse Model of Sjögren’s Syndrome ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Lacrimal gland inflammation during autoimmune Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) leads to ocular surface inflammation – Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS). This condition afflicts both the cornea and conjunctiva that form the ocular ...
• #### Conjuring the Masses: The Figure of the Crowd in Modern Chinese Literature and Visual Culture ﻿

(2012-10-22)
This dissertation argues that the figure of the crowd in literature and visual culture constitutes a crucial component in the emergence and construction of the cultural, political, and historical values of modern China. ...
• #### Conjuring the Mysteries of Slavery: Voodoo, Fetishism, and Stereotype in Ishmael Reed’s Flight to Canada ﻿

(Duke University Press, 2005)
• #### Connected Cartographies: World Maps in Translation Between China, Inner Asia and Early Modern Europe, 1550-1650 ﻿

(2019-05-07)
This dissertation analyses the formation of world geography in the early modern period from the perspective of methodologies of global history and translation studies. Previous accounts about the "age of discoveries" of ...
• #### Connected components of affine Deligne–Lusztig varieties in mixed characteristic ﻿

(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2015)
We determine the set of connected components of minuscule affine Deligne–Lusztig varieties for hyperspecial maximal compact subgroups of unramified connected reductive groups. Partial results are also obtained for non-minuscule ...
• #### Connectedness, social support and internalising emotional and behavioural problems in adolescents displaced by the Chechen conflict ﻿

(Wiley-Blackwell, 2012)
The study investigated factors associated with internalising emotional and behavioural problems among adolescents displaced during the most recent Chechen conflict. A cross-sectional survey (N=183) examined relationships ...
• #### Connecting Binuclear Pd(III) and Mononuclear Pd(IV) Chemistry by Pd–Pd Bond Cleavage ﻿

(American Chemical Society, 2012)
Oxidation of binuclear Pd(II) complexes with PhICl$_2$ or PhI(OAc)$_2$ has previously been shown to afford binuclear Pd(III) complexes featuring a Pd–Pd bond. In contrast, oxidation of binuclear Pd(II) complexes with ...
• #### Connecting high-field quantum oscillations to zero-field electron spectral functions in the underdoped cuprates ﻿

(Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
The nature of the pseudogap regime of cuprate superconductors at low hole density remains unresolved. It has a number of seemingly distinct experimental signatures: a suppression of the paramagnetic spin susceptibility at ...

• #### Connecting the Lines between Hypogonadism and Atherosclerosis ﻿

(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
Epidemiological studies show that atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and point to gender differences with ageing males being at highest risk. Atherosclerosis is ...
• #### The Connection between Microphysical Morphology and Atmospheric Particle Phase Transitions ﻿

(2013-02-11)
The phase of atmospheric particles can influence heterogeneous chemistry, cloud formation, and radiative forcing. Sulfate particles ranging from sulfuric acid to ammonium sulfate are the largest contributor arising from ...
• #### The Connection Machine Systems CM-5 ﻿

(1993)
The Connection Machine system CM-5 is a parallel computing system scalable to Tflop performance, hundreds of Gbytes of primary storage, Tbytes of secondary storage and Gbytes/s of I/O bandwidth. The system has been designed ...
• #### Connections between markets and learning ﻿

(Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010)
We provide an overview of recent research exploring the striking mathematical connections that exist between market maker mechanisms for prediction markets and no-regret learning. We describe how these connections can be ...
• #### Connective tissue growth factor as a novel therapeutic target in high grade serous ovarian cancer ﻿

(Impact Journals LLC, 2015)
Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of death among women with gynecologic cancer. We examined molecular profiles of fibroblasts from normal ovary and high-grade serous ovarian tumors to identify novel therapeutic targets ...
• #### Connectivity and computations in higher-order olfactory neurons in Drosophila ﻿

(2014-06-06)
