Fine-resolution satellite observations show great potential for characterizing seasonal and annual dynamics of vegetation phenology in urban domains, from local to regional and global scales. However, most previous studies were conducted using coarse or moderate resolution data, which are inadequate for characterizing the spatiotemporal dynamics of vegetation phenology in urban domains. In this study, we produced an annual vegetation phenology dataset in urban ecosystems for the conterminous United States (US), using all available Landsat images on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform. First, we characterized the long-term mean seasonal pattern of phenology indicators of the start of season (SOS) and ...

Analysis Of Feast Spectral Approximations Using The Dpg Discretization, 2019 Portland State University

#### Analysis Of Feast Spectral Approximations Using The Dpg Discretization, Jay Gopalakrishnan, Luka Grubišić, Jeffrey S. Ovall, Benjamin Q. Parker

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications and Presentations*

A filtered subspace iteration for computing a cluster of eigenvalues and its accompanying eigenspace, known as “FEAST”, has gained considerable attention in recent years. This work studies issues that arise when FEAST is applied to compute part of the spectrum of an unbounded partial differential operator. Specifically, when the resolvent of the partial differential operator is approximated by the discontinuous Petrov Galerkin (DPG) method, it is shown that there is no spectral pollution. The theory also provides bounds on the discretization errors in the spectral approximations. Numerical experiments for simple operators illustrate the theory and also indicate the value of ...

Improving Vix Futures Forecasts Using Machine Learning Methods, 2019 Southern Methodist University

#### Improving Vix Futures Forecasts Using Machine Learning Methods, James Hosker, Slobodan Djurdjevic, Hieu Nguyen, Robert Slater

*SMU Data Science Review*

The problem of forecasting market volatility is a difficult task for most fund managers. Volatility forecasts are used for risk management, alpha (risk) trading, and the reduction of trading friction. Improving the forecasts of future market volatility assists fund managers in adding or reducing risk in their portfolios as well as in increasing hedges to protect their portfolios in anticipation of a market sell-off event. Our analysis compares three existing financial models that forecast future market volatility using the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index (VIX) to six machine/deep learning supervised regression methods. This analysis determines which models provide ...

Improving Access To Clean Water In Rural Ecuador: The Connection Between Willingness To Pay And Population Health, 2019 SIT Graduate Institute

#### Improving Access To Clean Water In Rural Ecuador: The Connection Between Willingness To Pay And Population Health, Micalea Leaska

*Capstone Collection*

Climate change is affecting social and environmental determinants of health through access to safe drinking water, safely managed sanitation systems, and access to health care services and the ability for individuals to break free from unsuitable circumstances. Ecological disturbances such as those caused by climate change can cause a shift in host vectors or a change in habitat that results in a greater likelihood of the pathogen coming in contact with humans. Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services and their accessibility to populations can directly impact a community’s vulnerability to diseases and limiting factors to increase economic growth. If ...

Approximations In Reconstructing Discontinuous Conductivities In The Calderón Problem, 2019 University of Kentucky

#### Approximations In Reconstructing Discontinuous Conductivities In The Calderón Problem, George H. Lytle

*Theses and Dissertations--Mathematics*

In 2014, Astala, Päivärinta, Reyes, and Siltanen conducted numerical experiments reconstructing a piecewise continuous conductivity. The algorithm of the shortcut method is based on the reconstruction algorithm due to Nachman, which assumes a priori that the conductivity is Hölder continuous. In this dissertation, we prove that, in the presence of infinite-precision data, this shortcut procedure accurately recovers the scattering transform of an essentially bounded conductivity, provided it is constant in a neighborhood of the boundary. In this setting, Nachman’s integral equations have a meaning and are still uniquely solvable.

To regularize the reconstruction, Astala et al. employ a high ...

Boundary Layers In Periodic Homogenization, 2019 University of Kentucky

#### Boundary Layers In Periodic Homogenization, Jinping Zhuge

*Theses and Dissertations--Mathematics*

The boundary layer problems in periodic homogenization arise naturally from the quantitative analysis of convergence rates. Formally they are second-order linear elliptic systems with periodically oscillating coefficient matrix, subject to periodically oscillating Dirichelt or Neumann boundary data. In this dissertation, for either Dirichlet problem or Neumann problem, we establish the homogenization results and obtain the nearly sharp convergence rates, provided the domain is strictly convex. Also, we show that the homogenized boundary data is in *W*^{1,p }for any *p* ∈ (1,∞), which implies the *C ^{α}*-Hölder continuity for any

Primes In Arithmetical Progression, 2019 Colby College

#### Primes In Arithmetical Progression, Edward C. Wessel

*Honors Theses*

This thesis will tackle Dirichlet’s Theorem on Primes in Arithmetical Progressions. The majority of information that follows below will stem from Tom M. Apostol’s *Introduction to Analytical Number Theory.* This is the main source of all definitions, theorems, and method. However, I would like to assure the reader that prior knowledge of neither the text nor analytical number theory in general is needed to understand the result. A rough background in Abstract Algebra and a moderate grasp on Complex and Real Analysis are more than sufficient. In fact, my project’s intent is to introduce Dirichlet’s ideas ...

Eigenvalues And Approximation Numbers, 2019 Claremont Colleges

#### Eigenvalues And Approximation Numbers, Ryan Chakmak

*CMC Senior Theses*

While the spectral theory of compact operators is known to many, knowledge regarding the relationship between eigenvalues and approximation numbers might be less known. By examining these numbers in tandem, one may develop a link between eigenvalues and l^p spaces. In this paper, we develop the background of this connection with in-depth examples.

Neutrosophic Triplet Structures - Vol. 1, 2019 University of New Mexico

#### Neutrosophic Triplet Structures - Vol. 1, Florentin Smarandache, Memet Sahin

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty and Staff Publications*

Neutrosophic set has been derived from a new branch of philosophy, namely Neutrosophy. Neutrosophic set is capable of dealing with uncertainty, indeterminacy and inconsistent information. Neutrosophic set approaches are suitable to modeling problems with uncertainty, indeterminacy and inconsistent information in which human knowledge is necessary, and human evaluation is needed. Neutrosophic set theory was firstly proposed in 1998 by Florentin Smarandache, who also developed the concept of single valued neutrosophic set, oriented towards real world scientific and engineering applications. Since then, the single valued neutrosophic set theory has been extensively studied in books and monographs, the properties of neutrosophic sets ...

Global Existence And Asymptotic Behaviors For Some Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations., 2019 West Virginia University

#### Global Existence And Asymptotic Behaviors For Some Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations., Ismahan Dhaw Binshati

*Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports*

We study global existence and asymptotic behavior of the solutions for two-fluid compressible isentropic Euler-Maxwell equations by the Fourier transform and energy method. We discuss the case when the pressure for two fluids is not identical and we also add the friction between two fluids. In addition, we discuss the rates of decay of $L^{p}-L^{q}$ norms for a linear system. Moreover, we use the result for $L^{p}-L^{q}$ estimates to prove the decay rates for the nonlinear systems. In addition, we prove existence of heteroclinic orbits for the nonlinear Vlasov and the one-dimensional Vlasov-Poisson systems ...
