INDIGO makes UIC's scholarly INtellectual property in DIGital form available online in an Open environment. Indigo is also a UIC official color.
INDIGO collects, disseminates, and provides persistent and reliable access to the research and scholarship of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Faculty, staff, and graduate students can deposit their research and scholarship - unpublished and, in many cases, published - directly into INDIGO. Departments can use INDIGO to distribute their working papers, technical reports, or other research material. Contact us for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The University Library supports publishing and scholarly communication through this repository and through our journal publishing platform Journals@UIC. These are part of the library's efforts to support eScholarship@UIC.
All theses and dissertations deposited from Fall 2011 onward are available in INDIGO.

The Association between Daytime Napping Characteristics and Bone Mineral Density in Elderly Thai Women without Osteoporosis (Nature Research, 2018-07-03)Low bone mass is more prevalent with increasing age. Studies have found associations between sleep duration, sleep quality and obstructive sleep apnea and bone mineral density (BMD). However, less is known about the ...
Further investigation on the coupling between the reference and elastic displacements in flexible body dynamics (Elsevier, 2018-08-04)A new semi-analytical multibody system (MBS) model derived using general nonlinear flexible body dynamics formulation is developed in this investigation. The semi-analytical model can serve as a benchmark example for testing ...
Epistemic rationality: Skepticism toward unfounded beliefs requires sufficient cognitive ability and motivation to be rational (Elsevier, 2018-02-01)Why does belief in the paranormal, conspiracy theories, and various other phenomena that are not backed up by evidence remain widespread in modern society? In the present research we adopt an individual difference approach, ...
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2017-08-06)The Ehrenfest dynamics, representing a quantum-classical mean-field type coupling, is a widely used approximation in quantum molecular dynamics. In this paper, we propose a time-splitting method for an Ehrenfest dynamics, ...
Endogeic earthworm densities increase in response to higher fine root production in a forest exposed to elevated CO2 (Elsevier, 2018-07)Net primary productivity (NPP) influences soil food webs and ultimately the amount of carbon (C) inputs in ecosystems. Earthworms can physically protect organic matter from rapid mineralization through the formation of ...
