ii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I am grateful for the help of countless people on the completion of my thesis. Without their help, I could never have done it! First, I would like to thank Dave Parsons. I could not have imagined having a better advisor and mentor for my master's. His guidance and patience over the past 3+ years was unshakable, even as I never seemed to do things the easy way. Thanks also to Mike Jimenez for friendship, support, and direction when I was straying from the task at hand; todoi:10.3996/032016-jfwm-024 fatcat:napubjdarbfy5ksawngzcnuxpq
