Six Septembers: Mathematics For The Humanist, 2017 Duquesne University

#### Six Septembers: Mathematics For The Humanist, Patrick Juola, Stephen Ramsay

*Zea E-Books*

Scholars of all stripes are turning their attention to materials that represent enormous opportunities for the future of humanistic inquiry. The purpose of this book is to impart the concepts that underlie the mathematics they are likely to encounter and to unfold the notation in a way that removes that particular barrier completely. This book is a primer for developing the skills to enable humanist scholars to address complicated technical material with confidence. This book, to put it plainly, is concerned with the things that the author of a technical article knows, but isn’t saying. Like any field, mathematics ...

On The Closure Of The Completely Positive Semidefinite Cone And Linear Approximations To Quantum Colorings, 2017 CWI (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica) Amsterdam

#### On The Closure Of The Completely Positive Semidefinite Cone And Linear Approximations To Quantum Colorings, Sabine Burgdorf, Monique Laurent, Teresa Piovesan

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

We investigate structural properties of the completely positive semidefinite cone $\mathcal{CS}_+$, consisting of all the $n \times n$ symmetric matrices that admit a Gram representation by positive semidefinite matrices of any size. This cone has been introduced to model quantum graph parameters as conic optimization problems. Recently it has also been used to characterize the set $\mathcal Q$ of bipartite quantum correlations, as projection of an affine section of it. We have two main results concerning the structure of the completely positive semidefinite cone, namely about its interior and about its closure. On the one hand we construct ...

Some Comments On Multiple Discovery In Mathematics, 2017 Queen Mary University of London

#### Some Comments On Multiple Discovery In Mathematics, Robin W. Whitty

*Journal of Humanistic Mathematics*

Among perhaps many things common to Kuratowski's Theorem in graph theory, Reidemeister's Theorem in topology, and Cook's Theorem in theoretical computer science is this: all belong to the phenomenon of *simultaneous discovery* in mathematics. We are interested to know whether this phenomenon, and its close cousin *repeated discovery*, give rise to meaningful questions regarding causes, trends, categories, etc. With this in view we unearth many more examples, find some tenuous connections and draw some tentative conclusions.

Teaching And Learning Mathematics In The Ar/Vr Environment, 2017 CUNY Hostos Community College

#### Teaching And Learning Mathematics In The Ar/Vr Environment, Alexander Vaninsky

*Publications and Research*

This presentation discusses teaching and learning mathematics in augmented (AR) or virtual (VR) reality created by a combination of goggles and earphones. It claims that interactive learning in such an environment is more attractive and efficient. It increases motivation and interest in the subject matter. The approach is underlain by the findings of educational neuroscience considering the learning process as the formation of domains in the brain forming mathematics knowledge centers. The teaching process provides sensory excitation and establishes connections among these and other domains. Hardware and software are available in the market. The suggested approach allows for practical implementation ...

#### A Madison-Numeracy Citation Index (2008-2015): Implementing A Vision For A Quantitatively Literate World, Nathan D. Grawe, H. L. Vacher

*Numeracy*

This editorial recognizes the contributions made by Bernard Madison to the field of quantitative literacy with a bibliographic index of his papers, edited volumes, and works contained therein that were cited in the first eight volumes (2008-2015) of *Numeracy*. In total, 61 citing papers ("sources") cite 42 Madison works ("citations") a total of 218 times. The source and citation indexes provided in the appendix at the end of this editorial make it easy to see the direct contribution of Madison's work to the arguments and debates contained in the founding years of the journal.

Sine, Cosine, And Tangent Table: 0 To 360 Degrees, 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

#### Sine, Cosine, And Tangent Table: 0 To 360 Degrees, Paul Royster

*Math Department: Class Notes and Learning Materials*

In helping with my high school student's math homework, I was astonished to find no trig tables in the 800-page textbook. I was further astonished to find no printable version online that extended beyond 90°.

While most smartphones will tell you the sine of an angle, they will not necessarily tell you the angle for which the sine is *x. *And since multiple angles may have the same sine (e.g. 59° and 121°), it seems useful to see the numerical progression of the functions in addition to their graphical representation.

Here is a printable sine-cosine-tangent table for all ...

The Creation Of A Video Review Guide For The Free-Response Section Of The Advanced Placement Calculus Exam, 2016 Western Michigan University

#### The Creation Of A Video Review Guide For The Free-Response Section Of The Advanced Placement Calculus Exam, Jeffrey Brown

*Honors Theses*

*The Creation of a Video Review Guide for the Free-Response Section of the Advanced Placement Calculus Exam *follows the creation of a resource to help students prepare for the College Board’s Advanced Placement Calculus Exam. This project originated out of the authors personal experiences in preparing for this exam. The goal of the project was to create an accessible resource that reviews content, provides insights into the Advanced Placement exam, and creates successful habits in student responses. This paper, chronologically, details the development of the resource and a reflection on the final product and future uses.

Bio-Mathematics: Introduction To The Mathematical Model Of The Hepatitis C Virus, 2016 California State University - San Bernardino

#### Bio-Mathematics: Introduction To The Mathematical Model Of The Hepatitis C Virus, Lucille J. Durfee

*Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations*

In this thesis, we will study bio-mathematics. We will introduce differential equations, biological applications, and simulations with emphasis in molecular events. One of the first courses of action is to introduce and construct a mathematical model of our biological element. The biological element of study is the Hepatitis C virus. The idea in creating a mathematical model is to approach the biological element in small steps. We will first introduce a block (schematic) diagram of the element, create differential equations that define the diagram, convert the dimensional equations to non-dimensional equations, reduce the number of parameters, identify the important parameters ...

Regular Round Matroids, 2016 California State University - San Bernardino

#### Regular Round Matroids, Svetlana Borissova

*Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations*

A matroid *M* is a finite set *E*, called the ground set of *M*, together with a notion of what it means for subsets of *E* to be independent. Some matroids, called regular matroids, have the property that all elements in their ground set can be represented by vectors over any field. A matroid is called round if its dual has no two disjoint minimal dependent sets. Roundness is an important property that was very useful in the recent proof of Rota's conjecture, which remained an unsolved problem for 40 years in matroid theory. In this thesis, we give ...

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 ...
