#### Stability Analysis Of A More General Class Of Systems With Delay-Dependent Coefficients, Chi Jin, Keqin Gu, Islam Boussaada, Silviu-Iulian Niculescu

*SIUE Faculty Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity*

This paper presents a systematic method to analyse the stability of systems with single delay in which the coefficient polynomials of the characteristic equation depend on the delay. Such systems often arise in, for example, life science and engineering systems. A method to analyze such systems was presented by Beretta and Kuang in a 2002 paper, but with some very restrictive assumptions. This work extends their results to the general case with the exception of some degenerate cases. It is found that a much richer behavior is possible when the restrictive assumptions are removed. The interval of interest for the ...

Using Principle Component Analysis To Analyze Tertiary And Quaternary Spectral Mixtures, 2019 Olivet Nazarene University

#### Using Principle Component Analysis To Analyze Tertiary And Quaternary Spectral Mixtures, David Burnett

*Scholar Week 2016 - present*

CRISM images from Mars are expected to contain carbonates such as magnesite. Prior research has been successfully able to determine the approximate percent composition of phyllosilicates in binary lab mixtures using Principle Component Analysis (PCA). In order to expand this model to work on CRISM images, one of preliminary steps is allowing the algorithm to work on mixtures with more than two components, which was the primary purpose of this research.

Algorithms To Approximate Solutions Of Poisson's Equation In Three Dimensions, 2019 University of Mary Washington

#### Algorithms To Approximate Solutions Of Poisson's Equation In Three Dimensions, Ray Dambrose

*Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal*

The focus of this research was to develop numerical algorithms to approximate solutions of Poisson's equation in three dimensional rectangular prism domains. Numerical analysis of partial differential equations is vital to understanding and modeling these complex problems. Poisson's equation can be approximated with a finite difference approximation. A system of equations can be formed that gives solutions at internal points of the domain. A computer program was developed to solve this system with inputs such as boundary conditions and a nonhomogenous source function. Approximate solutions are compared with exact solutions to prove their accuracy. The program is tested ...

Optimal Conditional Expectation At The Video Poker Game Jacks Or Better, 2019 University of Utah

#### Optimal Conditional Expectation At The Video Poker Game Jacks Or Better, Stewart N. Ethier, John J. Kim, Jiyeon Lee

*UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal*

There are 134,459 distinct initial hands at the video poker game Jacks or Better, taking suit exchangeability into account. A computer program can determine the optimal strategy (i.e., which cards to hold) for each such hand, but a complete list of these strategies would require a book-length manuscript. Instead, a hand-rank table, which fits on a single page and reproduces the optimal strategy perfectly, was found for Jacks or Better as early as the mid 1990s. Is there a systematic way to derive such a hand-rank table? We show that there is indeed, and it involves finding the ...

In nonlinear science and engineering, the mentioned equation is applied to analyze the one way tract of long waves in seas and harbors. In this study, the closed form traveling wave solutions to the above equation are evaluated due to conformable fractional derivatives through double (G'⁄G,1⁄G)-expansion method and the ...

Numerical Investigation Of Inclination On The Thermal Performance Of Porous Fin Heatsink Using Pseudospectral Collocation Method, 2019 University of Bradford

#### Numerical Investigation Of Inclination On The Thermal Performance Of Porous Fin Heatsink Using Pseudospectral Collocation Method, George Oguntala, Gbeminiyi Sobamowo, Raed Abd-Alhameed, James Noras

*Karbala International Journal of Modern Science*

Numerical investigation of inclination effect on the thermal performance of a porous fin heat sink is presented. The developed thermal model is solved using pseudo-spectral collocation method (PSCM). Parametric studies are carried out using PSCM, and the thermal characterization of heat sink with the inclined porous fin of rectangular geometry is presented. Results show that heat sink of inclined porous fin exhibits higher thermal performance than heat sink of vertical porous fin operating under the same thermal conditions with the same geometrical configurations. Performance of inclined or tilted fin increases with decrease in length-thickness aspect ratio. However, increase in the ...

An Examination Of California's 2030 Transportation Electrification Goals, 2019 Claremont McKenna College

#### An Examination Of California's 2030 Transportation Electrification Goals, Patricia Rivera

*Aurora Ob/Gyn Residents*

Climate change and air pollution pose serious consequences including longer

heat waves and sea level rise. California is taking several initiatives to address

these problems, calling for an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by

2050 from 1990 levels. The transportation sector in California has relied

heavily on fossil fuels, significantly contributing to the emissions of greenhouse

gas emissions. As a result, one of the main technologies the state has been

motivating to combat this is the implementation of battery electric vehicles.

These vehicles have not started gaining popularity until recently and there are

still several market barriers that slow ...

Heterogeneous Boolean Networks With Two Totalistic Rules, 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

#### Heterogeneous Boolean Networks With Two Totalistic Rules, Katherine Toh

*Student Research and Creative Activity Fair*

Boolean Networks are being used to analyze models in biology, economics, social sciences, and many other areas. These models simplify the reality by assuming that each element in the network can take on only two possible values, such as ON and OFF. The node evolution is governed by its interaction with other nodes in its neighborhood, which is described mathematically by a Boolean function or rule. For simplicity reasons, many models assume that all nodes follow the same Boolean rule. However, real networks often use more than one Boolean rule and therefore are heterogeneous networks. Heterogeneous networks have not yet ...

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

Let $\Omega_n$ denote the convex polytope of all $n\times n$ doubly stochastic matrices, and $\omega_{n}$ denote the convex polytope of all $n\times n$ doubly substochastic matrices. For a matrix $A\in\omega_n$, define the sub-defect of $A$ to be the smallest integer $k$ such that there exists an $(n+k)\times(n+k)$ doubly stochastic matrix containing $A$ as a submatrix. Let $\omega_{n,k}$ denote the subset of $\omega_n$ which contains all doubly substochastic matrices with sub-defect $k$. For $\pi$ a permutation of symmetric group of degree $n$, the sequence of elements $a_{1\pi(1 ...

Inferring The Distribution Of Selective Effects From A Time Inhomogeneous Model, 2019 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

#### Inferring The Distribution Of Selective Effects From A Time Inhomogeneous Model, Amei Amei, Shilei Zhour

*Math Faculty Publications*

We have developed a Poisson random field model for estimating the distribution of selective effects of newly arisen nonsynonymous mutations that could be observed as polymorphism or divergence in samples of two related species under the assumption that the two species populations are not at mutation-selection-drift equilibrium. The model is applied to 91Drosophila genes by comparing levels of polymorphism in an African population of D. melanogaster with divergence to a reference strain of D. simulans. Based on the difference of gene expression level between testes and ovaries, the 91 genes were classified as 33 male-biased, 28 female-biased, and 30 sex-unbiased ...

*Papers in Natural Resources*

Given the intensity and frequency of environmental change, the linked and cross-scale nature of social-ecological systems, and the proliferation of big data, methods that can help synthesize complex system behavior over a geographical area are of great value. Fisher information evaluates order in data and has been established as a robust and effective tool for capturing changes in system dynamics, including the detection of regimes and regime shifts. The methods developed to compute Fisher information can accommodate multivariate data of various types and requires no a priori decisions about system drivers, making it a unique and powerful tool. However, the ...

Least Action Principle Applied To A Non-Linear Damped Pendulum, 2019 Montclair State University

#### Least Action Principle Applied To A Non-Linear Damped Pendulum, Katherine Rhodes

*Theses, Dissertations and Culminating Projects*

The principle of least action is a variational principle that states an object will always take the path of least action as compared to any other conceivable path. This principle can be used to derive the equations of motion of many systems, and therefore provides a unifying equation that has been applied in many fields of physics and mathematics. Hamilton’s formulation of the principle of least action typically only accounts for conservative forces, but can be reformulated to include non-conservative forces such as friction. However, it can be shown that with large values of damping, the object will no ...
