  • Problems in Algebraic Vision 

    Lee, Hon Leung
    This thesis studies several fundamental mathematical problems that arise from computer vision using techniques in algebraic geometry and optimization. Chapters 2 and 3 consider the fundamental question of the existence of ...
  • On f-vectors of polytopes and matroids 

    Samper Casas, Jose Alejandro
    The f-vector of a simplicial complex is a fundamental invariant that counts the number of faces in each dimension. A natural question in the theory of simplicial complexes is to understand the relationship between the ...
  • Cornered Asymptotically Hyperbolic Metrics 

    McKeown, Stephen Edward
    This thesis considers asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds that have a finite boundary in addition to the usual infinite boundary – cornered asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. A theorem of Cartan-Hadamard type near infinity ...
  • Some Inverse Problems in Analysis and Geometry 

    ASSYLBEKOV, YERNAT
    The aim of a typical inverse problem is to recover the interior properties of a medium by making measurements only on the boundary. These types of problems are motivated by geophysics, medical imaging and quantum mechanics ...
  • On T-Semisimplicity of Iwasawa Modules and Some Computations with Z3-Extensions 

    Van Huele, Yannick
    For certain Zp-extensions of abelian number fields, we study the Iwasawa module associated to the ideal class groups. We show that generic Zp-extensions of abelian number fields are T-semisimple. We also construct the ...
  • On the Geometry of Rectifiable Sets with Carleson and Poincare-type inequlaities 

    Merhej, Jessica
    A central question in geometric measure theory is whether geometric properties of a set translate into analytical ones. In 1960, E. R. Reifenberg proved that if an $n$-dimensional subset $M$ of $\mathbb{R}^{n+d}$ is well ...
  • Formal group laws and hypergraph colorings 

    Taylor, Jair Patrick
    This thesis demonstrates a connection between formal group laws and chromatic symmetric functions of hypergraphs, two seemingly unrelated topics in the theory of symmetric functions. A formal group law is a symmetric ...
  • Boundary Harnack Principle for Stable-Like Processes 

    Rudnick, Christian
    We establish the boundary Harnack principle for certain classes of symmetric stable-like processes in $\mathbf{R}^d$ on arbitrary open sets as well as censored stable-like processes on $\mathcal{C}^{1,1}$-domains. Using ...
  • Random recursion 

    Junge, Matthew S.
    We study the limiting behavior of three stochastic processes. Two are interacting particle systems, the frog model and coalescing random walk. We work out transience and recurrence properties on various graphs. The last ...
  • Computational aspects of modular parametrizations of elliptic curves 

    Chen, Hao
    \abstract{ We investigate computational problems related to modular parametrizations of elliptic curves defined over $\mathbb{Q}$. We develop algorithms to compute the Mazur Swinnerton-Dyer critical subgroup of elliptic ...
  • Geometry and Optimization of Relative Arbitrage 

    Wong, Ting Kam Leonard
    This thesis is devoted to the mathematics of volatility harvesting, the idea that extra portfolio growth may be created by systematic rebalancing. First developed by E. R. Fernholz in the late 90s and the early 2000s, ...
  • Results on singularities of pairs 

    Prelli, Lorenzo
    Singularities of algebraic varieties have been studied extensively, and recently also the properties of singularities of pairs have been investigated. This thesis presents several results on singularities of different kinds ...
  • On Selmer groups and factoring p-adic L-functions 

    Palvannan, Bharathwaj
    Samit Dasgupta has proved a formula factoring a certain restriction of a 3-variable Rankin-Selberg p-adic L-function as a product of a 2-variable p-adic L-function related to the adjoint representation of a Hida family and ...
  • Aspects of Markov Chains and Particle Systems 

    Ganguly, Shirshendu
    The thesis concerns asymptotic behavior of particle systems and the underlying Markov chains used to model various natural phenomena. The objective is to describe and analyze stochastic models involving spatial structure ...
  • Path algebras and monomial algebras of finite GK-dimension as noncommutative homogeneous coordinate rings 

    Holdaway, Cody
    This thesis sets out to understand the categories QGr A where A is either a monomial algebra or a path algebra of finite Gelfand-Kirillov dimension. The principle questions are: \begin{enumerate} \item What is the structure ...
  • Grothendieck Duality on Diagrams of Schemes 

    Clenaghan, Graham John
    The Du Bois complex and Du Bois singularities, which extend results of Hodge theory to singular complex varieties, can be defined in terms of a cubical hyperresolution. In this dissertation I further develop the language ...
  • Heat Kernel Estimates for Markov Processes Associated with Time-Dependent Dirichlet Forms 

    Wang, Hanchao
    In this paper, time-inhomogeneous stable-like processes are investigated. We establish the relation between the transition operators and time-dependent parabolic equations, as well as upper heat kernel estimates.
  • Competing Brownian Particles 

    Sarantsev, Andrey
    Consider a finite system of N Brownian particles on the real line. Rank them from bottom to top: the (currently) lowest particle has rank 1, the second lowest has rank 2, etc., up to the top particle, which has rank N. The ...
  • Matrix free methods for large scale optimization 

    Wang, Jiashan
    Sequential quadratic optimization (SQP) methods are widely used to solve large-scale nonlinear optimization problems. We build two matrix-free methods for approximately solving exact penalty subproblems that arise when ...
  • Sheaves on support varieties and varieties of elementary subalgebras 

    Stark, James
    We present several results about two closely related types of objects: the projectivized scheme $\PG$ of one parameter subgroups of an infinitesimal group scheme $G$ and the variety $\bE(\fg)$ of maximal elementary subalgebras ...
