(p)ppGpp and cdiGMP : A Tale of Two Second Messengers in Mycobacterium smegmatis
Nucleotide based second messengers are known to regulate wide variety of processes in all domains of life. Two such bacterial second messengers are (p)ppGpp (guanosine tetra or pentaphosphate) and cdiGMP (cyclic dimeric ... 
(p)ppGpp and Stress Response : Decoding the Key Pathways by Small Molecule Analogues Biophysical Methods and Mass Spectrometry
(20180608)Under hostile conditions, bacteria elicit stress response. Such stress response is regulated by a secondary messenger called (p)ppGpp. (p)ppGpp is involved in wide range of functions such as GTP homeostasis, biofilm formation ... 
Packed Bed GasificationCombustion In Biomass Based Domestic Stoves And Combustion Systems
(20140704)This thesis constitutes fundamental experimental and computational investigations on gasification and combustion in a packed bed of biomass. Packed bed gasificationcombustion in countercurrent mode is used in two ... 
Packet Scheduling on the Wireless Channel
(20171207)Scheduling has always been an indispensable part of resource allocation in wireless networks. Accurate information about channelstate is assumed as a modeling simplification. However, in a reallife network ,e.g., Long ... 
Palladium and Nickel Chalcogenides as Electrocatalysts
(20171202)In recent years, there has been an increasing interest on renewable energy sources as substitute to fossil fuels. Among various processes of energy generation, electrochemical methods such as storage and conversion systems, ...

(20180718)Chapter 1: Metal carbenoids in organic synthesis The chapter describes the phenomena of metal carbenoid insertion reactions in two parts: Part A, and Part B. The study of Ntosylhydrazones as diazo precursor was commenced ... 
A Parallelizing Compiler for Fortran
(Indian Institute of Science, 20050309)With the advent of Distributed Memory Machines (DMMs) numerous work have been undertaken to ease the work of a programmer these systems. Data parallel languages like Fortran D, Vienna Fortran, High Performance Fortran and ... 
Parameterized Complexity of Maximum Edge Coloring in Graphs
(20180309)The classical graph edge coloring problem deals in coloring the edges of a given graph with minimum number of colors such that no two adjacent edges in the graph, get the same color in the proposed coloring. In the following ... 
Parametric Analysis Of A Free Piston Stirling Engine For Spacecraft Power Applications With A Radioisotope Heat Source
(20140711)Stirling engines are promising candidates for applications where air breathing engines cannot be used. Self contained engines capable of operating independently of the environment are required to convert thermal energy ... 
Partial Slip Contacts in Linear Viscoelasticity
(20171005)This work analyzes partial slip contact problems in the theory of linear viscoelasticity using both the semianalytical method and nite element method. Such problems arise in metalpolymer contacts in orthopedic implants ... 
Particle Dynamics In A Turbulent ParticleGas Suspension At High Stokes Number
(20101208)Particle laden turbulent flows find applications in many industrial processes such as energy conversion, air pollution control etc. In these types of flows, there are strong coupling between the turbulent fluctuations in ...
