Calculating The Cohomology Of A Lie Algebra Using Maple And The Serre Hochschild Spectral Sequence, Jacob Kullberg 2018 Utah State University

Calculating The Cohomology Of A Lie Algebra Using Maple And The Serre Hochschild Spectral Sequence, Jacob Kullberg

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Lie algebra cohomology is an important tool in many branches of mathematics. It is used in the Topology of homogeneous spaces, Deformation theory, and Extension theory. There exists extensive theory for calculating the cohomology of semi simple Lie algebras, but more tools are needed for calculating the cohomology of general Lie algebras. To calculate the cohomology of general Lie algebras, I used the symbolic software program called Maple. I wrote software to calculate the cohomology in several different ways. I wrote several programs to calculate the cohomology directly. This proved to be computationally expensive as the number of differential forms ...

Yelp’S Review Filtering Algorithm, Yao Yao, Ivelin Angelov, Jack Rasmus-Vorrath, Mooyoung Lee, Daniel W. Engels 2018 Southern Methodist University

Yelp’S Review Filtering Algorithm, Yao Yao, Ivelin Angelov, Jack Rasmus-Vorrath, Mooyoung Lee, Daniel W. Engels

SMU Data Science Review

In this paper, we present an analysis of features influencing Yelp's proprietary review filtering algorithm. Classifying or misclassifying reviews as recommended or non-recommended affects average ratings, consumer decisions, and ultimately, business revenue. Our analysis involves systematically sampling and scraping Yelp restaurant reviews. Features are extracted from review metadata and engineered from metrics and scores generated using text classifiers and sentiment analysis. The coefficients of a multivariate logistic regression model were interpreted as quantifications of the relative importance of features in classifying reviews as recommended or non-recommended. The model classified review recommendations with an accuracy of 78%. We found that ...


On The Well-Posedness And Global Boundary Controllability Of A Nonlinear Beam Model, Jessie Jamieson 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

On The Well-Posedness And Global Boundary Controllability Of A Nonlinear Beam Model, Jessie Jamieson

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics

The theory of beams and plates has been long established due to works spanning many fields, and has been explored through many investigations of beam and plate mechanics, controls, stability, and the well-posedness of systems of equations governing the motions of plates and beams. Additionally, recent investigations of flutter phenomena by Dowell, Webster et al. have reignited interest into the mechanics and stability of nonlinear beams. In this thesis, we wish to revisit the seminal well-posedness results of Lagnese and Leugering for the one dimensional, nonlinear beam from their 1991 paper, "Uniform stabilization of a nonlinear beam by nonlinear boundary ...


Adaptive Meshfree Methods For Partial Differential Equations, Jaeyoun Oh 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Adaptive Meshfree Methods For Partial Differential Equations, Jaeyoun Oh

Dissertations

There are many types of adaptive methods that have been developed with different algorithm schemes and definitions for solving Partial Differential Equations (PDE). Adaptive methods have been developed in mesh-based methods, and in recent years, they have been extended by using meshfree methods, such as the Radial Basis Function (RBF) collocation method and the Method of Fundamental Solutions (MFS). The purpose of this dissertation is to introduce an adaptive algorithm with a residual type of error estimator which has not been found in the literature for the adaptive MFS. Some modifications have been made in developing the algorithm schemes depending ...


Closed Range Composition Operators On Bmoa, Kevser Erdem 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Closed Range Composition Operators On Bmoa, Kevser Erdem

Theses and Dissertations

Let φ be an analytic self-map of the unit disk D. The composition operator with symbol φ is denoted by Cφ. Reverse Carleson type conditions, counting functions and sampling sets are important tools to give a complete characterization of closed range composition operators on BMOA and on Qp for all p ∈ (0,∞).

Let B denote the Bloch space, let H2 denote the Hardy space. We show that if Cφ is closed range on B or on H2 then it is also closed range on BMOA. Closed range composition operators Cφ : B → BMOA are also characterized. Laitila found the isometries among ...


Full Field Computing For Elastic Pulse Dispersion In Inhomogeneous Bars, A. Berezovski, R. Kolman, M. Berezovski, D. Gabriel, V. Adamek 2018 Tallinn University of Technology

Full Field Computing For Elastic Pulse Dispersion In Inhomogeneous Bars, A. Berezovski, R. Kolman, M. Berezovski, D. Gabriel, V. Adamek

Publications

In the paper, the finite element method and the finite volume method are used in parallel for the simulation of a pulse propagation in periodically layered composites beyond the validity of homogenization methods. The direct numerical integration of a pulse propagation demonstrates dispersion effects and dynamic stress redistribution in physical space on example of a one-dimensional layered bar. Results of numerical simulations are compared with analytical solution constructed specifically for the considered problem. Analytical solution as well as numerical computations show the strong influence of the composition of constituents on the dispersion of a pulse in a heterogeneous bar and ...


Finite Element Analysis Of Large Body Deformation Induced By A Catastrophic Near Impact Event, Denver W. Seely, Andrew Bowman, Heechen Cho, Mark Horstemeyer 2018 Mississippi State University

Finite Element Analysis Of Large Body Deformation Induced By A Catastrophic Near Impact Event, Denver W. Seely, Andrew Bowman, Heechen Cho, Mark Horstemeyer

The Proceedings of the International Conference on Creationism

Finite element simulations of near impacts of terrestrial bodies are presented to investigate possible deformation behavior induced by a massive body during the creation week and/or Genesis Flood. Using the universal law of gravitation, a gravitationally loaded objected is subjected to the ‘pull’ of a near passing fly-by object, and the resulting surface deformations are studied. An Internal State Variable (ISV) pressure dependent plasticity model for silicate rocks (Cho et al., 2018) is used to model the deformation behavior and to capture the history effects involved during the complex surface loading/unloading found in a near impact event. The ...


Iteration With Stepsize Parameter And Condition Numbers For A Nonlinear Matrix Equation, Syed M. Raza Shah Naqvi, Jie Meng, Hyun-Min Kim 2018 Pusan National University

Iteration With Stepsize Parameter And Condition Numbers For A Nonlinear Matrix Equation, Syed M. Raza Shah Naqvi, Jie Meng, Hyun-Min Kim

Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra

In this paper, the nonlinear matrix equation $X^p+A^TXA=Q$, where $p$ is a positive integer, $A$ is an arbitrary $n\times n$ matrix, and $Q$ is a symmetric positive definite matrix, is considered. A fixed-point iteration with stepsize parameter for obtaining the symmetric positive definite solution of the matrix equation is proposed. The explicit expressions of the normwise, mixed and componentwise condition numbers are derived. Several numerical examples are presented to show the efficiency of the proposed iterative method with proper stepsize parameter and the sharpness of the three kinds of condition numbers.

United States Population Future Estimates And Long-Term Distribution, Sean P. Brogan 2018 DePaul University

United States Population Future Estimates And Long-Term Distribution, Sean P. Brogan

DePaul Discoveries

The population of the United States has always increased year over year. Even now with decreasing birth rates, the overall population continues to grow when looking at conventional models. The present study specifically examines what would happen to the U.S. population if we were to maintain the current birth and survival rates into the future. By 2050, our research shows that the U.S. population will become much older and cease to grow at all.

Recta: Regulon Identification Based On Comparative Genomics And Transcriptomics Analysis, Xin Chen, Anjun Ma, Adam Mcdermaid, Hanyuan Zhang, Chao Liu, Huansheng Cao, Qin Ma

CSE Journal Articles

Regulons, which serve as co-regulated gene groups contributing to the transcriptional regulation of microbial genomes, have the potential to aid in understanding of underlying regulatory mechanisms. In this study, we designed a novel computational pipeline, regulon identification based on comparative genomics and transcriptomics analysis (RECTA), for regulon prediction related to the gene regulatory network under certain conditions. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this tool, we implemented RECTA on Lactococcus lactis MG1363 data to elucidate acid-response regulons. A total of 51 regulons were identified, 14 of which have computational-verified significance. Among these 14 regulons, five of them were computationally predicted to ...

There are different types of traders in the market, some have prior information and can learn from changes in prices to tweak her trading strategy continuously(Informed Traders), some have no prior information but can learn(Uninformed Learners), and some have no prior information and cannot learn(Uninformed Traders). In this thesis. Alvaro C, Sebastian J and Damir K \cite{AL} proposed a model for algorithmic traders to access the impact of dynamic learning in profit and loss in 2014. The traders can employ the ...


Automatic Construction Of Scalable Time-Stepping Methods For Stiff Pdes, Vivian Montiforte 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Automatic Construction Of Scalable Time-Stepping Methods For Stiff Pdes, Vivian Montiforte

Master's Theses

Krylov Subspace Spectral (KSS) Methods have been demonstrated to be highly scalable time-stepping methods for stiff nonlinear PDEs. However, ensuring this scalability requires analytic computation of frequency-dependent quadrature nodes from the coefficients of the spatial differential operator. This thesis describes how this process can be automated for various classes of differential operators to facilitate public-domain software implementation.


Power Corrections To Tmd Factorization For Z-Boson Production, I. Balitsky, A. Tatasov 2018 Old Dominion University

Power Corrections To Tmd Factorization For Z-Boson Production, I. Balitsky, A. Tatasov

Physics Faculty Publications

A typical factorization formula for production of a particle with a small transverse momentum in hadron-hadron collisions is given by a convolution of two TMD parton densities with cross section of production of the final particle by the two partons. For practical applications at a given transverse momentum, though, one should estimate at what momenta the power corrections to the TMD factorization formula become essential. In this paper we calculate the first power corrections to TMD factorization formula for Z-boson production and Drell-Yan process in high-energy hadron-hadron collisions. At the leading order in Nc power corrections are expressed in ...


Properties And Computation Of The Inverse Of The Gamma Function, Folitse Komla Amenyou 2018 The University of Western Ontario

Properties And Computation Of The Inverse Of The Gamma Function, Folitse Komla Amenyou

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

We explore the approximation formulas for the inverse function of Γ. The inverse function of Γ is a multivalued function and must be computed branch by branch. We compare three approximations for the principal branch Γ̌ 0 . Plots and numerical values show that the choice of the approximation depends on the domain of the arguments, specially for small arguments. We also investigate some iterative schemes and find that the Inverse Quadratic Interpolation scheme is better than Newton’s scheme for improving the initial approximation. We introduce the contours technique for extending a real-valued function into the complex plane using two ...


Math Behind Computer Graphics: Piecewise Smooth Interpolation, Jesica Bauer 2018 Carroll College

Math Behind Computer Graphics: Piecewise Smooth Interpolation, Jesica Bauer

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

Modern computers are able to create complex imagery with only a small set of information. For example, the fonts on your computer are saved as a set of points and the computer is told how to connect them. Many 3D animations start the same way, where the animation starts as a grid before the rest of the shape is systematically filled in. But how does the computer know how to connect the dots into a mesh? Or know how to create the smooth surface so that it doesn’t look blocky? To solve these problems, we implement mathematical algorithms to ...


Analyzing Lagrangian Statistics Of Eddy-Permitting Models, Amy Chen 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder

Analyzing Lagrangian Statistics Of Eddy-Permitting Models, Amy Chen

Applied Mathematics Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Mesoscale eddies are the strongest currents in the world oceans and transport properties such as heat, dissolved nutrients, and carbon. The current inability to effectively diagnose and parameterize mesoscale eddy processes in oceanic turbulence is a critical limitation upon the ability to accurately model large-scale oceanic circulations. This investigation analyzes the Lagrangian statistics for four faster and less computationally expensive eddy-permitting models --- Biharmonic, Leith, Jansen & Held Deterministic, and Jansen & Held Stochastic --- and compares them against each other and an eddy-resolving quasigeostrophic Reference model. Results from single-particle climatology show that all models exhibit similar behaviour in large-scale movement over long times ...
