School dropouts: a commentary and annotated bibliography by S. M Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on school dropouts is handicapped in the following areas--definition of the dropout population, inconsistent methods of data collection, inadequate research designs, community variation, variation in type of dropout, and knowledge of the process of dropping out. Dropout groups should be clearly defined, and variation in these groups should be emphasized. School records should not be relied on too heavily. Extensive interviews are effective. Community variations should be considered and generalizations should not be made without these considerations. Research should emphasize the process of dropping out instead of the properties of school dropouts. The interpretation of results is deeply affected by the elements that produced the research reports. Some things to be considered are--dropout rates, sex, racial and ethnic background, family type, age of dropouts, intelligence and achievement, grade attainment, and reasons for leaving or staying in school. High-aspiring dropouts who return to school have generally been neglected in research. Training and change at the teacher level is most effective when it is coupled with change at the administrative level. The success of many projects in low-income schools rests with organizational change rather than with the adoption of specific packages of program. An annotated bibliography of research on dropouts is included. Major areas are-- statement and definition of the problem, social characteristics, profile of the dropout in the school setting, post-dropout attitudes and experiences, action program and recommendations, and bibliographies on dropouts. A third section contains annotated references and methodology

Thermochemical IR sources : COCHISE and FACELIF experiments by S. M Miller( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of the experiments performed in the COCHISE facility has measured a fundamental chemical quantity such as a relative branching ratio, a quenching rate coefficient, or developed a new detection technique. These measurements are then provided for incorporation into the various atmospheric radiation codes, such as NORSE and SHARC, where they provide a solid experimental footing for modeling the complex chemical system of the upper atmosphere. The following papers provide the details of these experiments. (a) Branching Ratios for Infrared Vibrational Emission from NO(X2PiI, v'=2-13) (b) Ro-vibrational Excitation of Carbon Monoxide by Energy Transfer from Metastable Nitrogen (c) Quenching of N (2D) by 0(3P) (d) Detection of N(4S) by Resonantly Enhanced Multi-photon Ionization Spectroscopy COCHISE, FACELIF, Chemiluminescence, Ro-vibrational excitation multi-photon ionization, NO, CO, N(2D), 0, N(4S), Quenching
The dynamics of the American economy by Charles H Hession( Book )

4 editions published between 1956 and 1960 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atmospheric chemiluminescence : COCHISE and FACELIF experiments( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last four years, many experiments have been performed in the COCHISE facility. Each of these experiments has measured a fundamental chemical quantity such as a radiative branching ratio, a quenching rate coefficient or a product vibrational energy distribution. These measurements are then provided for incorporation into the various atmospheric radiation codes such as NORSE, ARC, and AARC, where they provide a solid experimental footing for modeling the complex chemical system of the upper atmosphere. Keywords: Nitric oxide; Nitrous oxide; Nitrogen; Carbon monoxide; Carbon dioxide branching ratio; Multiphoton ionization; Vibration population distribution; Rotational band heads. (kt)
Probabilistic rock slope engineering by S. M Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a probabilistic slope stability analysis, the input parameters are considered as random variables that must be statistically described. The descriptive process relies on statistical analyses of discontinuity data collected by field mapping and of laboratory and field test results. Sound geologic and engineering judgment should be used in conjunction with these analyses. The probability of stability for a given slope failure mode is estimated by combining the probability of sliding and the probability that the potential sliding surface is long enough to allow failure. The probability of sliding is calculated from a safety factor distribution which can be estimated by Monte Carlo simulation or by numerical convolution performed by discrete Fourier procedures. The probability of sifficient length is estimated from discontinuity length data obtained by structure mapping. Multiple occurrences of the same failures mode in a slope can be analyzed after they have been simulated by generating spatially correlated properties of discontinuities responsible for the failure mode. A probabilistic analysis also allows for the effects of different failure modes in the same slope to be combined into a probabilistic estimate of overall slope stability. Thus, rock slope engineering can be enhanced by probabilistic methods that allow for a realistic treatment of parameter variabilities and multiple failure modes and that also produce useful probabilistic slope design criteria
