    • Kingship festival iconography in the Egyptian Archaic Period

      McElroy, Keith; Dochniak, Craig Charles, 1964- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      The high degree of correlation existing between the subject matter visually depicted on Early Dynastic Egyptian objects and the year-names represented hieroglyphically on the Palermo Stone--an historical annal from the Fifth Dynasty--suggests that much Early Dynastic imagery was meant to serve as a dating device, a kind of pictorial year-name, based on the important event or events that occurred within the year. The selection of the historic events referred to in these year-names appears to be based on their compatibility with certain festivals associated with the king. These festivals express the theoretical model of kingship and therefore can be used to reconstruct the king's primary roles and responsibilities during the Early Dynastic Period. Such duties include the unification, protection and expansion of the king's realm--both Earthly and Cosmic; the insuring of the irrigation and fertility of the land; the foundation and dedication of important buildings and temples; and the reaffirmation and magical rejuvenation of his primeval powers as expressed in such festivals as the Sed.

      Zoellick, Bruce William. (The University of Arizona., 1985)
    • A knowledge acquisition scheme for fault diagnosis in complex manufacturing processes

      Cellier, Francois E.; Motaabbed, Asghar B., 1959- (The University of Arizona., 1992)
      This thesis introduces the problem of knowledge acquisition in developing a Trouble Shooting Guide (TSG) for equipment used in integrated circuit manufacturing. TSG is considered as a first step in developing an Expert Diagnostic System (EDS). The research is focused on the acquisition and refinement of actual knowledge from the manufacturing domain, and a Hierarchical Data Collection (HDC) system is introduced to solve the problem of bottleneck in developing EDS. An integrated circuit manufacturing environment is introduced, and issues relating to the collection and assessment of knowledge concerning the performance of the machine park are discussed. Raw data about equipment used in manufacturing environment is studied and results are discussed. A systematic classification of symptoms, failures, and repair activities is presented.
    • Knowledge and beliefs about contraception among urban Bolivian women

      Crookham, Janis Lee (The University of Arizona., 1981)
    • Knowledge based simulation system--an application in controlled environment simulation system

      Zeigler, Bernard P.; Zhang, Guoging, 1963- (The University of Arizona., 1988)
      This thesis systematically identifies the building blocks of a knowledge based system for simulation and modelling. We present the design and implementation of Controlled Environment Simulation System (CESS), which bridges a discrete event simulation system (DEVS-SCHEME) and a continuous simulation system (TRNSYS). The rationale behind the approach is that a discrete or a continuous model can be abstracted to a level at which the uniform treatment on these two kinds of models is possible. A top-down approach to model creation (abstraction) is proposed, in contrast to the traditional bottom-up approach. CESS is implemented on an object-oriented programming environment (SCOOPS on TI-SCHEME). A knowledge representation scheme known as System Entity Structure is employed for MODEL management, recording system structural knowledge, and the utilization of techniques in Artificial Intelligence. Some prospective research topics are also brought up.
    • Knowledge for College: Examining Multiple Forms of Capital Leveraged Towards Higher Education by Alumni Students from a Low-Income, Rural, Border Community in the Southwest

      Nicholas, Sheilah E.; Salcido, Judith Denise; Cabrera, Nolan; Wyman, Leisy (The University of Arizona., 2014)
      Most research on low-income, racial minority students' access to higher education has been conducted in urban communities. Little research explores these students' experiences within rural settings. Using Ríos-Aguilar, Kiyama, Gravitt and Moll's framework (2011) that bridges Yosso's (2005) "community cultural wealth" with alternative forms of capital, this case study investigated how three alumni students from a low-income, rural, border community accessed information and resources for college within their school, homes and community. Narratives, one-on-one interviews, and a survey questionnaire helped determine multiple forms of capital participants leveraged towards higher education. Participants' college pursuits and choices were influenced by information from family members, teachers and guidance counselors, community scholarships, and emotional support of family, friends, and community members. Research must continue to follow the experiences of rural, low-income, minority students access to higher education and create better opportunities and connections for them to attend college.
    • Knowledge, anxiety and coping level after two approaches to patient education

      Longstaff, Lorrie Jane (The University of Arizona., 1981)
    • Knowledge, stages of change, and exercise behavior in older Hispanic and Anglo adults

      Sennott-Miller, Lee; Strickland, Kathleen 1947-; Sennot-Miller, Lee; Amella, Elaine; Glittenberg, Jody (The University of Arizona., 1997)
      The present study was a secondary analysis of data from a community survey pretest that was part of a longitudinal study. The purpose of the present research was to examine the relationships among the demographic characteristics of Hispanic and Anglo rural elderly, their knowledge about health issues, and the frequency of their current sustained exercise activity. The stages of change construct of the transtheoretical model was used as the theoretical framework to identify levels of exercise activity. The subjects (n = 846) were divided into three ethnodemographic groups, called New Anglos, Old Anglos, and Hispanics, based on their ethnicity and length of residency in a rural community. Descriptive, correlational, and inferential statistics, specifically analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Pearson correlation, were used to analyze the data. Significant differences existed among all three groups in their knowledge of health issues. There were significant differences between the New Anglos and both the Old Anglos and the Hispanics in their frequency of exercise performance. No relationship was found between health knowledge and frequency of exercise performance for either the New Anglos or the Old Anglos. A low, but significant correlation was found between these two variables for the Hispanics.
    • Korean adult adoptees: Adlerian personality characteristics

      Newlon, Betty J.; Winn, Beverly Joan (The University of Arizona., 1994)
      This study examines in terms of Adlerian Life Style as revealed through Early Recollections, actual and perceived Birth Order, and Family Atmosphere the personality characteristics of Korean adults adopted as infants in the United States of America. Eight Korean subjects participated in a structured, tape recorded interview. Each subject reported four early recollections and/or dreams. Transcripts of these interviews were given to a panel of expert Adlerian judges who collectively analyzed and interpreted the gathered information. A composite life style summary could be formulated by combining common themes and personality characteristics. Results indicate several common life style themes and personality characteristics. The most commonly shared attributes were expecting to be hurt, wanting to be accepted and important, and viewing others in a negative sense.
    • Kostiakov infiltration functions for level furrow design

      Fangmeier, Delmar D.; Thaemert, David Karl, 1967- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      More efficient water application is generally achieved when the design parameters match actual field conditions. On four sites, Kostiakov infiltration functions were derived from cylinder and blocked furrow infiltrometers and SCS (Soil Conservation Service) intake families according to soil type. An infiltration function was also developed using a hydrodynamic computer model to adjust equation parameters to fit field data. Computer simulations of level furrow irrigation, using each Kostiakov infiltration function, were compared to actual field data. Excluding those functions fit to the field data, Kostiakov infiltration functions obtained from blocked furrow infiltrometers generally provided the most consistent input for level furrow irrigation design and evaluation.
