  • Bone, Terrence (1985)
    A matrix A is sign stable if some matrix with the same sign pattern of positive, negative, and zero entries has all eigenvalues with negative real parts. It is potentially stable if it is not sign unstable. The system A x ...
  • Wright, Stephen E., 1962- (1990)
    Large-scale problems in convex optimization often can be reformulated in primal-dual (minimax) representations having special decomposition properties. Approximation of the resulting high-dimensional problems by restriction ...
  • Praggastis, Brenda L. (Brenda Lien), 1961- (1992)
    The study of the dynamical properties of hyperbolic toral automorphisms is simplified when the automorphisms are represented as shifts of finite type. The conventional method used to represent such an automorphism symbolically ...
  • Hubbard, David, 1955- (1996)
    $\doubz\sbsp{p}{d}$-extensions are a natural way to extend Iwasawa's theory of $\doubz\sb{p}$-extensions. A further extension would be to look at free pro-p extensions which though nonabelian, can be studied by looking at ...
  • Wright, James M., 1960- (1996)
    A strong Markov process, $W\sp0$, is constructed by a natural linking together of two independent stable processes of type ($\alpha,\ \beta\sb1$) and ($\alpha,\ \beta\sb2$). The drift for a stable process X of type ($\alpha,\ ...
  • Harris, Julianne S. (Julianne September) (1997)
    We study the mod 2 homology of the general linear group of rings of integers in totally real number fields. In particular, for certain such rings R, we construct a space JKR and show that the mod 2 homology of JKR is a ...
  • Solomyak, Margarita (1997)
    Let $\Gamma$ be a Cayley graph of a finitely generated group G. Subgraphs which contain all vertices of $\Gamma ,$ have no cycles, and no finite connected components are called essential spanning forests. The set ${\cal ...
  • McDowall, Stephen R., 1969- (1998)
    We consider the inverse problem of determining the electromagnetic material parameters of a body from information obtainable only at the boundary of the body; such information comes in the form of a boundary map which we ...
  • Xu, Song, 1963- (1998)
    Because of its excellent numerical performance, non-interior path following methods (also called smoothing methods) have become an important class of methods for solving complementarity problems. However, no rate of ...
  • Schneider, David, 1970- (2000)
    A method of reducing several classes of nonholonomic mechanical systems that are defined on semidirect products of Lie groups is developed. The method reduces the Lagrange-d'Alembert principle to obtain a reduced constrained ...
  • Goebel, Rafal, 1971- (2000)
    The results of this thesis are oriented towards the study of convex problems of optimal control in the extended piecewise linear-quadratic format. Such format greatly extends the classical linear-quadratic regulator problem ...
  • Mailhot, James Michael (2003)
    The Mordell-Weil theorem states that the points of an elliptic curve defined over a number field form a finitely generated, abelian group. The rank of this group, generally referred to as the rank of the elliptic curve, ...
  • Blair, Matthew D (2005)
    Wave packet techniques provide an effective method for proving Strichartz estimates on solutions to wave equations whose coefficients are not smooth. In this work, such methods are used to show Strichartz inequalities for ...
  • Doherty, Davis C (2006)
    The present work studies singularities of hypersurfaces arising from generic projections of smooth projective varieties, in the context of Du Bois and semi log canonical singularities. It is demonstrated that Du Bois ...
  • Dochtermann, Anton, 1978- (2007)
    In this thesis we consider topological aspects of graph homomorphisms. Our main object of study is the Hom complex of graphs, a space first introduced by Lovasz to obtain lower bounds on chromatic number, and more recently ...
  • Bogart, Tristram, 1980- (2007)
    This thesis is a compendium of several projects that span the gap between commutative algebra and geometric combinatorics: one in tropical geometry, one in computational algebra, and two in discrete geometry and integer ...
  • Langmore, Ian (2008)
    The inverse problem in radiative transfer is considered. The measurement setup involves controlling incoming radiation at the boundary of a convex domain in Rn and measuring the outgoing radiation in an attempt to ...
  • Kirson, Antonio (2010)
    An automorphism $\sigma$ of a projective variety $X$ is said to be \textit{wild} if $\sigma(Y)\neq Y$ for every non-empty subvariety $Y\subsetneq X$. In MR2227726 Z. Reichstein, D. Rogalski, and J.J. Zhang conjectured that ...
  • Green, Christopher (2010-01-10)
    In this thesis we examine the connections between orthogonal polynomials and the Lanczos algorithm for tridiagonalizing a Hermitian matrix. The Lanczos algorithm provides an easy way to calculate and to estimate the ...
  • Suryanarayan, Sweta (2012-09-13)
    We study the local cohomology of a Schubert variety in a co-minuscule flag variety at a generic singularity. Let $G$ be a reductive complex algebraic group with a Borel subgroup $B$, let $W$ be the Weyl group of $G$ with ...
