Get The News Out Loudly And Quickly: Modeling The Influence Of The Media On Limiting Infectious Disease, Anna Mummert, Howard Weiss
Get The News Out Loudly And Quickly: Modeling The Influence Of The Media On Limiting Infectious Disease, Anna Mummert, Howard Weiss
Mathematics Faculty Research
During outbreaks of infectious diseases with high morbidity and mortality, individuals closely follow media reports of the outbreak. Many will attempt to minimize contacts with other individuals in order to protect themselves from infection and possibly death. This process is called social distancing. Social distancing strategies include restricting socializing and travel, and using barrier protections. We use modeling to show that for shortterm outbreaks, social distancing can have a large influence on reducing outbreak morbidity and mortality. In particular, public health agencies working together with the media can significantly reduce the severity of an outbreak by providing timely accounts of ...
Some Examples Of The Liouville Integrability Of The Banded Toda Flows, Zachary Youmans
Some Examples Of The Liouville Integrability Of The Banded Toda Flows, Zachary Youmans
All Graduate Theses and Dissertations
The Toda lattice is a famous integrable system studied by Toda in the 1960s. One can study the Toda lattice using a matrix representation of the system. Previous results have shown that this matrix of dimension n with 1 band and n−1 bands is Liouville integrable. In this paper, we lay the foundation for proving the general case of the Toda lattice, where we consider the matrix representation with dimension n and a partially filled lower triangular part. We call this the banded Toda flow. The main theorem is that the banded Toda flow up to dimension 10 is ...

"A Comparison Of Variable Selection Methods Using Bootstrap Samples From Environmental Metal Mixture Data", PaulYvann Djamen 4785403, PaulYvann Djamen
Mathematics & Statistics ETDs
In this thesis, I studied a newly developed variable selection method SODA, and three customarily used variable selection methods: LASSO, Elastic net, and Random forest for environmental mixture data. The motivating datasets have neurodevelopmental status as responses and metal measurements and demographic variables as covariates. The challenges for variable selections include (1) many measured metal concentrations are highly correlated, (2) there are many possible ways of modeling interactions among the metals, (3) the relationships between the outcomes and explanatory variables are possibly nonlinear, (4) the signal to noise ratio in the real data may be low. To compare these methods ...

At The Interface Of Algebra And Statistics, TaiDanae Bradley
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This thesis takes inspiration from quantum physics to investigate mathematical structure that lies at the interface of algebra and statistics. The starting point is a passage from classical probability theory to quantum probability theory. The quantum version of a probability distribution is a density operator, the quantum version of marginalizing is an operation called the partial trace, and the quantum version of a marginal probability distribution is a reduced density operator. Every joint probability distribution on a finite set can be modeled as a rank one density operator. By applying the partial trace, we obtain reduced density operators whose diagonals ...
Quadratic Packing Polynomials On Sectors Of R^{2}, Kaare S. Gjaldbaek
Quadratic Packing Polynomials On Sectors Of R2, Kaare S. Gjaldbaek
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
A result by FueterPólya states that the only quadratic polynomials that bijectively map the integral lattice points of the first quadrant onto the nonnegative integers are the two Cantor polynomials. We study the more general case of bijective mappings of quadratic polynomials from the lattice points of sectors defined as the convex hull of two rays emanating from the origin, one of which falls along the xaxis, the other being defined by some vector. The sector is considered rational or irrational according to whether this vector can be written with rational coordinates or not. We show that the existence of ...
Translation Distance And Fibered 3Manifolds, Alexander J. Stas
Translation Distance And Fibered 3Manifolds, Alexander J. Stas
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
A 3manifold is said to be fibered if it is homeomorphic to a surface bundle over the circle. For a cusped, hyperbolic, fibered 3manifold M, we study an invariant of the mapping class of a surface homeomorphism called the translation distance in the arc complex and its relation with essential surfaces in M. We prove that the translation distance of the monodromy of M can be bounded above by the Euler characteristic of an essential surface. For onecusped, hyperbolic, fibered 3manifolds, the monodromy can also be bounded above by a linear function of the genus of an essential surface.
We ...
Convexity And Curvature In Hierarchically Hyperbolic Spaces, Jacob RussellMadonia
Convexity And Curvature In Hierarchically Hyperbolic Spaces, Jacob RussellMadonia
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Introduced by Behrstock, Hagen, and Sisto, hierarchically hyperbolic spaces axiomatized Masur and Minsky's powerful hierarchy machinery for the mapping class groups. The class of hierarchically hyperbolic spaces encompasses a number of important and seemingly distinct examples in geometric group theory including the mapping class group and Teichmueller space of a surface, virtually compact special groups, and the fundamental groups of 3manifolds without Nil or Sol components. This generalization allows the geometry of all of these important examples to be studied simultaneously as well as providing a bridge for techniques from one area to be applied to another.

Symmetric Rigidity For Circle Endomorphisms With Bounded Geometry And Their Dual Maps, John Adamski
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Let $f$ be a circle endomorphism of degree $d\geq2$ that generates a sequence of Markov partitions that either has bounded nearby geometry and bounded geometry, or else just has bounded geometry, with respect to normalized Lebesgue measure. We define the dual symbolic space $\S^*$ and the dual circle endomorphism $f^*=\tilde{h}\circ f\circ{h}^{1}$, which is topologically conjugate to $f$. We describe some properties of the topological conjugacy $\tilde{h}$. We also describe an algorithm for generating arbitrary circle endomorphisms $f$ with bounded geometry that preserve Lebesgue measure and their corresponding dual circle endomorphisms $f^*$ as ...
Averages And Nonvanishing Of Central Values Of Triple Product LFunctions Via The Relative Trace Formula, Bin Guan
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Harris and Kudla (2004) proved a conjecture of Jacquet, that the central value of a triple product Lfunction does not vanish if and only if there exists a quaternion algebra over which a period integral of three corresponding automorphic forms does not vanish. Moreover, Gross and Kudla (1992) established an explicit identity relating central Lvalues and period integrals (which are finite sums in their case), when the cusp forms are of prime levels and weight 2. Böcherer, SchulzePillot (1996) and Watson (2002) generalized this identity to more general levels and weights, and Ichino (2008) proved an adelic period formula which ...

Model Theory Of Groups And Monoids, Laura M. Lopez Cruz
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
We first show that arithmetic is biinterpretable (with parameters) with the free monoid and with partially commutative monoids with trivial center. This biinterpretability implies that these monoids have the QFA property and that finitely generated submonoids of these monoids are definable. Moreover, we show that any recursively enumerable language in a finite alphabet X with two or more generators is definable in the free monoid. We also show that for metabelian BaumslagSolitar groups and for a family of metabelian restricted wreath products, the Diophantine Problem is decidable. That is, we provide an algorithm that decides whether or not a given ...

Dna Complexes Of One BondEdge Type, Andrew Tyler LavengoodRyan
Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations
DNA selfassembly is an important tool used in the building of nanostructures and targeted virotherapies. We use tools from graph theory and number theory to encode the biological process of DNA selfassembly. The principal component of this process is to examine collections of branched junction molecules, called pots, and study the types of structures that such pots can realize. In this thesis, we restrict our attention to pots which contain identical cohesiveends, or a single bondedge type, and we demonstrate the types and sizes of structures that can be built based on a single characteristic of the pot that is ...

Radio Graceful Labelling Of Graphs, Laxman Saha, Alamgir Rahaman Basunia
Theory and Applications of Graphs
Radio labelling problem of graphs have their roots in communication problem known as \emph{Channel Assignment Problem}. For a simple connected graph $G=(V(G), E(G))$, a radio labeling is a mapping $f \colon V(G)\rightarrow \{0,1,2,\ldots\}$ such that $f(u)f(v)\geq {\rm diam}(G)+1d(u,v)$ for each pair of distinct vertices $u,v\in V(G)$, where $\rm{diam}(G)$ is the diameter of $G$ and $d(u,v)$ is the distance between $u$ and $v$. A radio labeling $f$ of a graph $G$ is a \emph{radio graceful labeling ...
The Distribution Of The Greatest Common Divisor Of Elements In Quadratic Integer Rings, Asimina S. Hamakiotes
The Distribution Of The Greatest Common Divisor Of Elements In Quadratic Integer Rings, Asimina S. Hamakiotes
Student Theses
For a pair of quadratic integers n and m chosen randomly, uniformly, and independently from the set of quadratic integers of norm x or less, we calculate the probability that the greatest common divisor of (n,m) is k. We also calculate the expected norm of the greatest common divisor (n,m) as x tends to infinity, with explicit error terms. We determine the probability and expected norm of the greatest common divisor for quadratic integer rings that are unique factorization domains. We also outline a method to determine the probability and expected norm of the greatest common divisor of ...

Domination Number Of Annulus Triangulations, Toshiki Abe, Junki Higa, ShinIchi Tokunaga
Domination Number Of Annulus Triangulations, Toshiki Abe, Junki Higa, ShinIchi Tokunaga
Theory and Applications of Graphs
An {\em annulus triangulation} $G$ is a 2connected plane graph with two disjoint faces $f_1$ and $f_2$ such that every face other than $f_1$ and $f_2$ are triangular, and that every vertex of $G$ is contained in the boundary cycle of $f_1$ or $f_2$. In this paper, we prove that every annulus triangulation $G$ with $t$ vertices of degree 2 has a dominating set with cardinality at most $\lfloor \frac{V(G)+t+1}{4} \rfloor$ if $G$ is not isomorphic to the octahedron. In particular, this bound is best possible.

An InDepth Look At PAdic Numbers, Xiaona Zhou
Publications and Research
In this study, we consider $p$adic numbers. We will also study the $p$adic norm representation of real number, which is defined as $\mathbb{Q}_p = \{\sum_{j=m}^{\infty }a_j p^j: a_j \in \mathbb{D}_p, m\in\mathbb{Z}, a_m\neq 0\} \cup \{0\}$, where $p$ is a prime number. We explore properties of the $p$adics by using examples. In particular, we will show that $\sqrt{6},i \in \mathbb{Q}_5$ and $\sqrt{2} \in \mathbb{Q}_7 $. $p$adic numbers have a wide range of applicationsnin fields such as string theory, quantum mechanics ...
Nonlocal Helmholtz Decompositions And Connections To Classical Counterparts, Andrew Haar, Petronela Radu
Nonlocal Helmholtz Decompositions And Connections To Classical Counterparts, Andrew Haar, Petronela Radu
UCARE Research Products
In recent years nonlocal models have been successfully introduced in a variety of applications, such as dynamic fracture, nonlocal diffusion, flocking, and image processing. Thus, the development of a nonlocal calculus theory, together with the study of nonlocal operators has become the focus of many theoretical investigations. Our work focuses on a Helmholtz decomposition in the nonlocal (integral) framework. In the classical (differential) setting the Helmholtz decomposition states that we can decompose a three dimensional vector field as a sum of an irrotational function and a solenoidal function. We will define new nonlocal gradient and curl operators that allow us ...

Introductory Calculus: Through The Lenses Of Covariation And Approximation, Caleb Huber
Graduate Student Portfolios, Papers, and Capstone Projects
Over the course of a year, I investigated reformative approaches to the teaching of calculus. My research revealed the substantial findings of two educators, Michael Oehrtman and Pat Thompson, and inspired me to design a course based upon two key ideas, covariation and approximation metaphors. Over a period of six weeks, I taught a course tailored around these ideas and documented student responses to both classroom activities and quizzes. Responses were organized intonarratives, covariation, rates of change, limits, and delta notation. Covariation with respect to rates of change was found to be incredibly complex, and students would often see it ...
Conjugation By Circulant Matrices In NonCommutative Cryptography, Hannah B. Frederick
Conjugation By Circulant Matrices In NonCommutative Cryptography, Hannah B. Frederick
Student Research Submissions
We introduce a procedure in which two trusted individuals, Alice and Bob, may share a secret matrix K from the nonabelian general linear group of matrices. In this procedure, the matrix K is concealed from an eavesdropper, Eve, by a sequence of conjugations by elements from a predetermined abelian subgroup of the general linear group. We demonstrate that the group of invertible circulant matrices is one abelian subgroup that may be able to withstand a brute force attack. To analyze this we need a technique to determine the order of this group, and to do this we make use of ...

Combinatorial And Asymptotic Statistical Properties Of Partitions And Unimodal Sequences, Walter Mcfarland Bridges
Combinatorial And Asymptotic Statistical Properties Of Partitions And Unimodal Sequences, Walter Mcfarland Bridges
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
Our main results are asymptotic zeroone laws satisfied by the diagrams of unimodal sequences of positive integers. These diagrams consist of columns of squares in the plane; the upper boundary is called the shape. For various types of unimodal sequences, we show that, as the number of squares tends to infinity, 100% of shapes are near a certain curvethat is, there is a single limit shape. Similar phenomena have been wellstudied for integer partitions, but several technical difficulties arise in the extension of such asymptotic statistical laws to unimodal sequences. We develop a widely applicable method for obtaining these limit ...

A wellknown theorem is Diagonalization, where one of the factors is a diagonal matrix. In this paper we will be describing a similar way to factor/decompose a nonsquare matrix. The key to both of these ways to factor is eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Exploration Of Solvable Quintic Polynomials, Stephen Tivenan
Student Research Submissions
A polynomial f(x) with rational coefficients is solvable by radicals if its roots (in the field of complex numbers C) can be expressed in terms of its coefficients using the basic operations and radicals. It is known that for quintic polynomials there is no generic formula for the roots. That is, some quintic polynomials are solvable and some are not. In this paper, we address the mathematical theory that makes the formula for the roots of a polynomial. Primarily we will focus on our methodology of generating and examining quintic polynomials. In one case study, we will examine quintic ...
Anticommutative Associative Algebras And The Binomial Theorem, Ashley Scurlock
Anticommutative Associative Algebras And The Binomial Theorem, Ashley Scurlock
Student Research Submissions
We examine the binomial theorem and its components in a noncommutative associative algebra. Specifically, we examine the relationship between the 1binomial and 1binomial coefficient, as well as exploring alternatives for the exponential identity for noncommutative and anticommutative elements. Through this investigation we found that the 1binomial can be mapped to the 1binomial and that the relationship could be used to prove a defined alternative for the exponential identity for anticommutative elements.

The T, T*, Vi, Vni Model For Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (Hiv1) Dynamics, Amy Creel
Student Research Submissions
In this research project, I investigated deterministic and stochastic versions of a model for Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV1) dynamics. First, an analytical solution to a simplified version of the deterministic model is found. Then, numerical techniques are used to obtain an approximate solution to the deterministic model. Finally, a stochastic version of the model is discussed, and numerical methods are used to find an approximate solution to the stochastic system. These results demonstrate the behavior of HIV1 in an infected patient under the effects of reverse transcriptase and protease inhibitors, and illustrate how the addition of randomness to ...

Research Day
NASA L'Space Mission Concept Academy is a virtual academy in which we had to complete a 12week team mission concept. Our mission objective was to design a small mission concept that characterized the polar water ice on Earth's moon. Our mission had to fit within the mission concept constraints (mass, volume, and budget). Our spacecraft design and scientific payload had to reflect what can be afforded within these constraints. To complete this mission concept, our team relied heavily on math, engineering, geology, and chemistry.
