ProQuest is honored to publish the breakthrough research of the 2013 Nobel Laureates, now available via ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Full Text and new ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global.

The 2013 Nobel Laureate dissertations explore a range of topics, from logarithms of stock prices to term structure of interest rates to nonferrous metals to biological membranes to DNA replication reaction.

Here is just one example of the driving question from “The Distribution of the Daily Differences of the Logarithms of Stock Prices” by Eugene F.

This announcement also comes on the eve of a historic date of a Nobel Laureate also featured in ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global. On December 10, 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. At 35 years old, he was the youngest man, of any race, and only the second black person, to ever receive the honor. Upon notification that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize, King was quick to declare that he would dedicate the $54,000 in prize money to furthering the efforts of the civil rights movement.

 

Along with the works of the 2013 Nobel Laureates, you can explore graduate works from authors such as Martin Luther King, Jr., and Carl Sagan, and diverse topics, including rock music influences such as Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, as shown below.
