Modern Fair-Weather And Storm Sediment Transport Around Ship Island, Mississippi: Implications For Coastal Habitats And Restoration Efforts, Eve Rettew Eisemann 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

Modern Fair-Weather And Storm Sediment Transport Around Ship Island, Mississippi: Implications For Coastal Habitats And Restoration Efforts, Eve Rettew Eisemann

Master's Theses

The Mississippi – Alabama barrier island chain is experiencing accelerated sea level rise, decreased sediment supply, and frequent hurricane impacts. These three factors drive unprecedented rates of morphology change and ecosystem reduction. All islands in the chain have experienced land loss on the order of hectares per year since records began in the 1840s. In 1969, Hurricane Camille impacted as a Category 5, breaching Ship Island, and significantly reduced viable seagrass habitat. Hurricane Katrina impacted as a Category 3 in 2005, further widening Camille Cut. To better understand the sustainability of these important islands and the ecosystems they support, sediment transport ...


Fast Method Of Particular Solutions For Solving Partial Differential Equations, Anup Raja Lamichhane 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

Fast Method Of Particular Solutions For Solving Partial Differential Equations, Anup Raja Lamichhane

Dissertations

Method of particular solutions (MPS) has been implemented in many science and engineering problems but obtaining the closed-form particular solutions, the selection of the good shape parameter for various radial basis functions (RBFs) and simulation of the large-scale problems are some of the challenges which need to overcome. In this dissertation, we have used several techniques to overcome such challenges.

The closed-form particular solutions for the Matérn and Gaussian RBFs were not known yet. With the help of the symbolic computational tools, we have derived the closed-form particular solutions of the Matérn and Gaussian RBFs for the Laplace and biharmonic ...


Applying Ahp And Clustering Approaches For Public Transportation Decisionmaking: A Case Study Of Isfahan City, Alireza Salavati, Hossein Haghshenas, Bahador Ghadirifaraz, Jamshid Laghaei, Ghodrat Eftekhari 2016 Isfahan Dept. of Transportation and Traffic

Applying Ahp And Clustering Approaches For Public Transportation Decisionmaking: A Case Study Of Isfahan City, Alireza Salavati, Hossein Haghshenas, Bahador Ghadirifaraz, Jamshid Laghaei, Ghodrat Eftekhari

Journal of Public Transportation

The main purpose of this paper is to define appropriate criteria for the systematic approach to evaluate and prioritize multiple candidate corridors for public transport investment simultaneously to serve travel demand, regarding supply of current public transportation system and road network conditions of Isfahan, Iran. To optimize resource allocation, policymakers need to identify proper corridors to implement a public transportation system. In fact, the main question is to adopt the best public transportation system for each main corridor of Isfahan. In this regard, 137 questionnaires were completed by experts, directors, and policymakers of Isfahan to identify goals and objectives in ...


A Traders Guide To The Predictive Universe- A Model For Predicting Oil Price Targets And Trading On Them, Jimmie Harold Lenz 2016 Washington University in St. Louis

A Traders Guide To The Predictive Universe- A Model For Predicting Oil Price Targets And Trading On Them, Jimmie Harold Lenz

Doctor of Business Administration Dissertations

At heart every trader loves volatility; this is where return on investment comes from, this is what drives the proverbial “positive alpha.” As a trader, understanding the probabilities related to the volatility of prices is key, however if you could also predict future prices with reliability the world would be your oyster. To this end, I have achieved three goals with this dissertation, to develop a model to predict future short term prices (direction and magnitude), to effectively test this by generating consistent profits utilizing a trading model developed for this purpose, and to write a paper that anyone with ...

Density-Dependent Leslie Matrix Modeling For Logistic Populations With Steady-State Distribution Control, Bruce Kessler, Andrew Davis 2016 Western Kentucky University

Density-Dependent Leslie Matrix Modeling For Logistic Populations With Steady-State Distribution Control, Bruce Kessler, Andrew Davis

Bruce Kessler

The Leslie matrix model allows for the discrete modeling of population age-groups whose total population grows exponentially. Many attempts have been made to adapt this model to a logistic model with a carrying capacity (see [1], [2], [4], [5], and [6]), with mixed results. In this paper we provide a new model for logistic populations that tracks age-group populations with repeated multiplication of a density-dependent matrix constructed from an original Leslie matrix, the chosen carrying capacity of the model, and the desired steady-state age-group distribution. The total populations from the model converge to a discrete logistic model with the same ...


Generalized Least-Powers Regressions I: Bivariate Regressions, Nataniel Greene 2016 CUNY Kingsborough Community College

Generalized Least-Powers Regressions I: Bivariate Regressions, Nataniel Greene

Publications and Research

The bivariate theory of generalized least-squares is extended here to least-powers. The bivariate generalized least-powers problem of order p seeks a line which minimizes the average generalized mean of the absolute pth power deviations between the data and the line. Least-squares regressions utilize second order moments of the data to construct the regression line whereas least-powers regressions use moments of order p to construct the line. The focus is on even values of p, since this case admits analytic solution methods for the regression coefficients. A numerical example shows generalized least-powers methods performing comparably to generalized least-squares methods, but ...


Multi-Objective Optimization Of Nonlinear Switched Time-Delay Systems In Fed-Batch Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong 2016 Dalian University of Technology

Multi-Objective Optimization Of Nonlinear Switched Time-Delay Systems In Fed-Batch Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong

Chongyang Liu


Maximization of productivity and minimization of consumption are two top priorities for biotechnological industry. In this paper, we model a fed-batch process as a nonlinear switched time-delay system. Taking the productivity of target product and the consump- tion rate of substrate as the objective functions, we present a multi-objective optimiza- tion problem involving the nonlinear switched time-delay system and subject to contin- uous state inequality constraints. To solve the multi-objective optimization problem, we first convert the problem into a sequence of single-objective optimization problems by us- ing convex weighted sum and normal boundary intersection methods. A gradient-based single-objective solver incorporating ...
