Supporting English Language Learners Inside The Mathematics Classroom: One Teacher’S Unique Perspective Working With Students During Their First Years In America, Amy Marie Fendrick
Supporting English Language Learners Inside The Mathematics Classroom: One Teacher’S Unique Perspective Working With Students During Their First Years In America, Amy Marie Fendrick
Research and Evaluation in Literacy and Technology
Reflecting upon my personal experiences teaching mathematics to English Language Learners (ELL) in a public high school in Lincoln, Nebraska, this essay largely focuses on the time I spent as the only Accelerated Math teacher in my school building. From 2012 – 2017, I taught three different subjects at this high school: Advanced Algebra, Algebra, and Accelerated Math. This essay highlights why I chose to become a math and ELL teacher, as well as the challenges, issues, struggles, and successes I experienced during my time teaching. I focus on the challenges I faced teaching students who did not share my native ...
Commutative Rings Graded By Abelian Groups, Brian P. Johnson
Commutative Rings Graded By Abelian Groups, Brian P. Johnson
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
Rings graded by Z and Z^{d} play a central role in algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, and the purpose of this thesis is to consider rings graded by any abelian group. A commutative ring is graded by an abelian group if the ring has a direct sum decomposition by additive subgroups of the ring indexed over the group, with the additional condition that multiplication in the ring is compatible with the group operation. In this thesis, we develop a theory of graded rings by defining analogues of familiar propertiessuch as chain conditions, dimension, and CohenMacaulayness. We then study the ...
Prime Ideals In TwoDimensional Noetherian Domains And Fiber Products And Connected Sums, Ela Celikbas
Prime Ideals In TwoDimensional Noetherian Domains And Fiber Products And Connected Sums, Ela Celikbas
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
This thesis concerns three topics in commutative algebra:
1) The projective line over the integers (Chapter 2),
2) Prime ideals in twodimensional quotients of mixed power seriespolynomial rings (Chapter 3),
3) Fiber products and connected sums of local rings (Chapter 4),
In the first chapter we introduce basic terminology used in this thesis for all three topics.
In the second chapter we consider the partially ordered set (poset) of prime ideals of the projective line Proj(Z[h,k]) over the integers Z, and we interpret this poset as Spec(Z[x]) U Spec(Z[1/x]) with an appropriate ...
HilbertSamuel And HilbertKunz Functions Of ZeroDimensional Ideals, Lori A. Mcdonnell
HilbertSamuel And HilbertKunz Functions Of ZeroDimensional Ideals, Lori A. Mcdonnell
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
The HilbertSamuel function measures the length of powers of a zerodimensional ideal in a local ring. Samuel showed that over a local ring these lengths agree with a polynomial, called the HilbertSamuel polynomial, for sufficiently large powers of the ideal. We examine the coefficients of this polynomial in the case the ideal is generated by a system of parameters, focusing much of our attention on the second Hilbert coefficient. We also consider the HilbertKunz function, which measures the length of Frobenius powers of an ideal in a ring of positive characteristic. In particular, we examine a conjecture of Watanabe and ...
Homology Of Artinian Modules Over Commutative Noetherian Rings, Micah J. Leamer
Homology Of Artinian Modules Over Commutative Noetherian Rings, Micah J. Leamer
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
This work is primarily concerned with the study of artinian modules over commutative noetherian rings.
We start by showing that many of the properties of noetherian modules that make homological methods work seamlessly have analogous properties for artinian modules. We prove many of these properties using Matlis duality and a recent characterization of Matlis reflexive modules. Since Matlis reflexive modules are extensions of noetherian and artinian modules many of the properties that hold for artinian and noetherian modules naturally follow for Matlis reflexive modules and more generally for minimax modules.
In the last chapter we prove that if the Betti ...
Groups And Semigroups Generated By Automata, David Mccune
Groups And Semigroups Generated By Automata, David Mccune
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
In this dissertation we classify the metabelian groups arising from a restricted class of invertible synchronous automata over a binary alphabet. We give faithful, selfsimilar actions of Heisenberg groups and upper triangular matrix groups. We introduce a new class of semigroups given by a restricted class of asynchronous automata. We call these semigroups ``expanding automaton semigroups''. We show that this class strictly contains the class of automaton semigroups, and we show that the class of asynchronous automaton semigroups strictly contains the class of expanding automaton semigroups. We demonstrate that undecidability arises in the actions of expanding automaton semigroups and semigroups ...
Annihilators Of Local Cohomology Modules, Laura Lynch
Annihilators Of Local Cohomology Modules, Laura Lynch
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
In many important theorems in the homological theory of commutative local rings, an essential ingredient in the proof is to consider the annihilators of local cohomology modules. We examine these annihilators at various cohomological degrees, in particular at the cohomological dimension and at the height or the grade of the defining ideal. We also investigate the dimension of these annihilators at various degrees and we refine our results by specializing to particular types of rings, for example, Cohen Macaulay rings, unique factorization domains, and rings of small dimension.

Formalizing Categorical And Algebraic Constructions In Operator Theory, William Benjamin Grilliette
Formalizing Categorical And Algebraic Constructions In Operator Theory, William Benjamin Grilliette
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
In this work, I offer an alternative presentation theory for C*algebras with applicability to various other normed structures. Specifically, the set of generators is equipped with a nonnegativevalued function which ensures existence of a C*algebra for the presentation. This modification allows clear definitions of a "relation" for generators of a C*algebra and utilization of classical algebraic tools, such as Tietze transformations.
On The Betti Number Of Differential Modules, Justin Devries
On The Betti Number Of Differential Modules, Justin Devries
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
Let R = k[x_{1}, ..., x_{n}] with k a field. A multigraded differential Rmodule is a multigraded Rmodule D with an endomorphism d such that d^{2} = 0. This dissertation establishes a lower bound on the rank of such a differential module when the underlying Rmodule is free. We define the Betti number of a differential module and use it to show that when the homology ker d/im d of D is nonzero and finite dimensional over k then there is an inequality rank_{R} D ≥ 2^{n}. This relates to a problem of Buchsbaum ...
The Cohomology Of Modules Over A Complete Intersection Ring, Jesse Burke
The Cohomology Of Modules Over A Complete Intersection Ring, Jesse Burke
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
We investigate the cohomology of modules over commutative complete intersection rings. The first main result is that if M is an arbitrary module over a complete intersection ring R, and if one even selfextension module of M vanishes then M has finite projective dimension. The second main result gives a new proof of the fact that the support variety of a CohenMacaulay module whose completion is indecomposable is projectively connected.
Vanishing Of Ext And Tor Over Complete Intersections, Olgur Celikbas
Vanishing Of Ext And Tor Over Complete Intersections, Olgur Celikbas
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
Let (R,m) be a local complete intersection, that is, a local ring whose madic completion is the quotient of a complete regular local ring by a regular sequence. Let M and N be finitely generated Rmodules. This dissertation concerns the vanishing of Tor(M, N) and Ext(M, N). In this context, M satisfies Serre's condition (S_{n}) if and only if M is an nth syzygy. The complexity of M is the least nonnegative integer r such that the nth Betti number of M is bounded by a polynomial of degree r1 for all sufficiently large n ...
Fan Cohomology And Equivariant Chow Rings Of Toric Varieties, MuWan Huang
Fan Cohomology And Equivariant Chow Rings Of Toric Varieties, MuWan Huang
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
Toric varieties are varieties equipped with a torus action and constructed from cones and fans. In the joint work with Suanne Au and Mark E. Walker, we prove that the equivariant Ktheory of an affine toric variety constructed from a cone can be identified with a group ring determined by the cone. When a toric variety X(Δ) is smooth, we interpret equivariant Kgroups as presheaves on the associated fan space Δ. Relating the sheaf cohomology groups to equivariant Kgroups via a spectral sequence, we provide another proof of a theorem of Vezzosi and Vistoli: equivariant K ...
Fan Cohomology And Its Application To Equivariant KTheory Of Toric Varieties, Suanne Au
Fan Cohomology And Its Application To Equivariant KTheory Of Toric Varieties, Suanne Au
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics
MuWan Huang, Mark Walker and I established an explicit formula for the equivariant Kgroups of affine toric varieties. We also recovered a result due to Vezzosi and Vistoli, which expresses the equivariant Kgroups of a smooth toric variety in terms of the Kgroups of its maximal open affine toric subvarieties. This dissertation investigates the situation when the toric variety X is neither affine nor smooth. In many cases, we compute the Čech cohomology groups of the presheaf K_{q}^{T} on X endowed with a topology. Using these calculations and Walker's Localization Theorem for equivariant Ktheory, we give explicit ...
