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

Zero-Dilation Index Of S_N-Matrix And Companion Matrix, 2016 Department of Mathematics, National Central University, Chungli 32001, Taiwan

#### Zero-Dilation Index Of S_N-Matrix And Companion Matrix, Hwa-Long Gau, Pei Yuan Wu

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

The zero-dilation index $d(A)$ of a square matrix $A$ is the largest $k$ for which $A$ is unitarily similar to a matrix of the form ${\scriptsize\left[\begin{array}{cc} 0_k & \ast\\ \ast & \ast\end{array}\right]}$, where $0_k$ denotes the $k$-by-$k$ zero matrix. In this paper, it is shown that if $A$ is an $S_n$-matrix or an $n$-by-$n$ companion matrix, then $d(A)$ is at most $\lceil n/2\rceil$, the smallest integer greater than or equal to $n/2$. Those $A$'s for which the upper bound is attained are also characterized ...

Generalizations Of The Cauchy And Fujiwara Bounds For Products Of Zeros Of A Polynomial, 2016 University of Guelph

#### Generalizations Of The Cauchy And Fujiwara Bounds For Products Of Zeros Of A Polynomial, Rajesh Pereira, Mohammad Ali Vali

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

The Cauchy bound is one of the best known upper bounds for the modulus of the zeros of a polynomial. The Fujiwara bound is another useful upper bound for the modulus of the zeros of a polynomial. In this paper, compound matrices are used to derive a generalization of both the Cauchy bound and the Fujiwara bound. This generalization yields upper bounds for the modulus of the product of $m$ zeros of the polynomial.

On Logarithmic Sobolev Inequality And A Scalar Curvature Formula For Noncommutative Tori, 2016 The University of Western Ontario

#### On Logarithmic Sobolev Inequality And A Scalar Curvature Formula For Noncommutative Tori, Sajad Sadeghi

*Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository*

In the first part of this thesis, a noncommutative analogue of Gross' logarithmic Sobolev inequality for the noncommutative 2-torus is investigated. More precisely, Weissler's result on the logarithmic Sobolev inequality for the unit circle is used to propose that the logarithmic Sobolev inequality for a positive element $a= \sum a_{m,n} U^{m} V^{n} $ of the noncommutative 2-torus should be of the form $$\tau(a^{2} \log a)\leqslant \underset{(m,n)\in \mathbb{Z}^{2}}{\sum} (\vert m\vert + \vert n\vert) \vert a_{m,n} \vert ^{2} + \tau (a^{2})\log ( \tau (a^2))^{1 ...

Moduli Space And Deformations Of Special Lagrangian Submanifolds With Edge Singularities, 2016 The University of Western Ontario

#### Moduli Space And Deformations Of Special Lagrangian Submanifolds With Edge Singularities, Josue Rosario-Ortega

*Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository*

Special Lagrangian submanifolds are submanifolds of a Calabi-Yau manifold calibrated by the real part of the holomorphic volume form. In this thesis we use elliptic theory for edge- degenerate differential operators on singular manifolds to study general deformations of special Lagrangian submanifolds with edge singularities. We obtain a general theorem describing the local structure of the moduli space. When the obstruction space vanishes the moduli space is a smooth, finite dimensional manifold.

An Algorithm For The Machine Calculation Of Minimal Paths, 2016 East Tennessee State University

#### An Algorithm For The Machine Calculation Of Minimal Paths, Robert Whitinger

*Electronic Theses and Dissertations*

Problems involving the minimization of functionals date back to antiquity. The mathematics of the calculus of variations has provided a framework for the analytical solution of a limited class of such problems. This paper describes a numerical approximation technique for obtaining machine solutions to minimal path problems. It is shown that this technique is applicable not only to the common case of finding geodesics on parameterized surfaces in R^{3}, but also to the general case of finding minimal functionals on hypersurfaces in R^{n} associated with an arbitrary metric.

On The Group Invertibility Of Operators, 2016 South China Normal University,

#### On The Group Invertibility Of Operators, Chunyuan Deng

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

The main topic of this paper is the group invertibility of operators in Hilbert spaces. Conditions for the existence of the group inverses of products of two operators and the group invertibility of anti-triangular block operator matrices are studied. The equivalent conditions related to the reverse order law for the group inverses of operators are obtained.

Topological And Hq Equivalence Of Prime Cyclic P-Gonal Actions On Riemann Surfaces, 2016 Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

#### Topological And Hq Equivalence Of Prime Cyclic P-Gonal Actions On Riemann Surfaces, Sean A. Broughton

*Mathematical Sciences Technical Reports (MSTR)*

Two Riemann surfaces *S*_{1} and *S*_{2} with conformal *G*-actions have topologically equivalent actions if there is a homeomorphism *h :* *S _{1} -> S_{2} *which intertwines the actions. A weaker equivalence may be defined by comparing the representations of

_{2}/GUniform Approximation On Riemann Surfaces, 2016 The University of Western Ontario

#### Uniform Approximation On Riemann Surfaces, Fatemeh Sharifi

*Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository*

This thesis consists of three contributions to the theory of complex approximation on

Riemann surfaces. It is known that if E is a closed subset of an open Riemann surface R and f is a holomorphic function on a neighbourhood of E, then it is usually not possible to approximate f uniformly by functions holomorphic on all of R. Firstly, we show, however, that for every open Riemann surface R and every closed subset E of R; there is closed subset F of E, which approximates E extremely well, such that every function holomorphic on F can be approximated much ...

On The Matrix Square Root Via Geometric Optimization, 2016 Massachusetts Institute of Technology

#### On The Matrix Square Root Via Geometric Optimization, Suvrit Sra

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

This paper is triggered by the preprint [P. Jain, C. Jin, S.M. Kakade, and P. Netrapalli. Computing matrix squareroot via non convex local search. Preprint, arXiv:1507.05854, 2015.], which analyzes gradient-descent for computing the square root of a positive definite matrix. Contrary to claims of Jain et al., the author’s experiments reveal that Newton-like methods compute matrix square roots rapidly and reliably, even for highly ill-conditioned matrices and without requiring com-mutativity. The author observes that gradient-descent converges very slowly primarily due to tiny step-sizes and ill-conditioning. The paper derives an alternative first-order method based on geodesic convexity ...

Norm Retrievable Frames In $\Mathbb{R}^N$, 2016 Department of Mathematics Vali-e-Asr University of Rafsanjan

#### Norm Retrievable Frames In $\Mathbb{R}^N$, Mohammad Ali Hasankhani Fard

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

This paper is concerned with the norm retrievable frames in $\mathbb{R}^n$. We present some equivalent conditions to the norm retrievable frames in $\mathbb{R}^n$. We will also show that the property of norm retrievability is stable under enough small perturbation of the frame set only for phase retrievable frames.

Development Of Utility Theory And Utility Paradoxes, 2016 Lawrence University

#### Development Of Utility Theory And Utility Paradoxes, Timothy E. Dahlstrom

*Lawrence University Honors Projects*

Since the pioneering work of von Neumann and Morgenstern in 1944 there have been many developments in Expected Utility theory. In order to explain decision making behavior economists have created increasingly broad and complex models of utility theory. This paper seeks to describe various utility models, how they model choices among ambiguous and lottery type situations, and how they respond to the Ellsberg and Allais paradoxes. This paper also attempts to communicate the historical development of utility models and provide a fresh perspective on the development of utility models.
