R\'Enyi's Quantum Thermodynamical Inequalities, Natalia Bebiano, Joao da Providencia, J.P. da Providencia 2018 University of Coimbra

R\'Enyi's Quantum Thermodynamical Inequalities, Natalia Bebiano, Joao Da Providencia, J.P. Da Providencia

Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra

A theory of thermodynamics has been recently formulated and derived on the basis of R\'enyi entropy and its relative versions. In this framework, the concepts of partition function, internal energy and free energy are defined, and fundamental quantum thermodynamical inequalities are deduced. In the context of R\'enyi's thermodynamics, the variational Helmholtz principle is stated and the condition of equilibrium is analyzed. The %obtained results reduce to the von Neumann ones when the R\'enyi entropic parameter $\alpha$ approaches 1. The main goal of the article is to give simple and self-contained proofs of important known results in ...

Don't Ask The Baby To Do Calculus: Thoughts From An Early-Career Math Mama, Caitlin Krul 2018 Worcester State University

Don't Ask The Baby To Do Calculus: Thoughts From An Early-Career Math Mama, Caitlin Krul

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

I very recently became a math mama. In my desperate search for patterns and structure in those first few weeks, my husband told me, "She's only three weeks old; we can't expect her to be doing calculus homework." I suppose he was right. I am working towards tenure and finding a new balance between teaching and family, all while trying to not lose sight of who I am. My personal challenges range from the logistics of being a nursing mother in a shared office to feelings of being seen as less adequate in my job if I present ...


Inquiry Based Learning: A Teaching And Parenting Opportunity, Aliza Steurer 2018 Dominican University

Inquiry Based Learning: A Teaching And Parenting Opportunity, Aliza Steurer

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

In this paper, I discuss what appears to be a new perspective on inquiry based learning (IBL) by describing its parallels with parenting. IBL is a student-centered learning method involving collaborative work on carefully sequenced exercises, oral and written communication of solutions, and peer review. Students create their own knowledge and present their ideas, and the instructor acts as a facilitator. The parallels between IBL and parenting include a growth mindset, emphasizing process over outcome, learning from mistakes, learning how to get unstuck, and deconstructing tasks. IBL and parenting also involve similar social interactions, such as responding to difficult questions ...


Semipositivity Of Linear Maps Relative To Proper Cones In Finite Dimensional Real Hilbert Spaces, Chandrashekaran Arumugasamy, Sachindranath Jayaraman, Vatsalkumar N. Mer 2018 IISER Trivandrum

Semipositivity Of Linear Maps Relative To Proper Cones In Finite Dimensional Real Hilbert Spaces, Chandrashekaran Arumugasamy, Sachindranath Jayaraman, Vatsalkumar N. Mer

Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra

For a proper cone $K$ in a finite dimensional real Hilbert space $V$, a linear map $L$ is said to be $K$-semipositive if there exists $d \in K^\circ$, the interior of $K$, such that $L(d) \in K^\circ$. The aim of this manuscript is to characterize $K$-semipositivity of linear maps relative to a proper cone. Among several results obtained, $K$-semipositivity is characterized in terms of products of the form $YX^{-1}$ for $K$-positive linear maps ($L(K \setminus \{0\}) \subseteq K^\circ$) with $X$ invertible, semipositivity of matrices relative to the $n$-dimensional Lorentz ...


Quantitative Literacy And Civic Virtue, William Briggs 2018 University of Colorado, Denver

Quantitative Literacy And Civic Virtue, William Briggs

Numeracy

Mathematics educators are occasionally called upon to justify the existence or the offering of quantitative literacy courses. This paper argues that effective quantitative literacy courses have different goals than algebra courses and are legitimate alternatives to algebra courses for non-STEM students. Furthermore, quantitative literacy courses affirm the historic relationship between citizenship and education. In today’s world of proliferating news sources, social media, and fake news, quantitative literacy has become an essential component of the long-held ideal of civic virtue.

Algorithmic Trading With Prior Information, Xinyi Cai 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

Algorithmic Trading With Prior Information, Xinyi Cai

Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Traders utilize strategies by using a mix of market and limit orders to generate profits. 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 ...


Developmental Mathematics: A Quantitative Investigation Of Instructor Classification As Related To Student Success, Brittany A. Fish 2018 Stephen F Austin State University

Developmental Mathematics: A Quantitative Investigation Of Instructor Classification As Related To Student Success, Brittany A. Fish

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine what type of predictive power exists between an instructor’s employment classification, student gender, student race, and first-generation status on a student’s academic success in developmental mathematics, as measured by final semester grades at a regionally comprehensive state university in Texas between fall 2013 and spring 2017. Data were collected from the institution under study and the sample population included 1932 unique student observations. The data collected in this study were analyzed through a binary logistic regression model to determine whether an instructor’s employment classification, student gender, student race ...


Examples Of Solving The Wave Equation In The Hyperbolic Plane, Cooper Ramsey 2018 Liberty University

Examples Of Solving The Wave Equation In The Hyperbolic Plane, Cooper Ramsey

Senior Honors Theses

The complex numbers have proven themselves immensely useful in physics, mathematics, and engineering. One useful tool of the complex numbers is the method of conformal mapping which is used to solve various problems in physics and engineering that involved Laplace’s equation. Following the work done by Dr. James Cook, the complex numbers are replaced with associative real algebras. This paper focuses on another algebra, the hyperbolic numbers. A solution method like conformal mapping is developed with solutions to the one-dimensional wave equation. Applications of this solution method revolve around engineering and physics problems involving the propagation of waves. To ...


Italian Domination In Complementary Prisms, Haley D. Russell 2018 East Tennessee State University

Italian Domination In Complementary Prisms, Haley D. Russell

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Let $G$ be any graph and let $\overline{G}$ be its complement. The complementary prism of $G$ is formed from the disjoint union of a graph $G$ and its complement $\overline{G}$ by adding the edges of a perfect matching between the corresponding vertices of $G$ and $\overline{G}$. An Italian dominating function on a graph $G$ is a function such that $f \, : \, V \to \{ 0,1,2 \}$ and for each vertex $v \in V$ for which $f(v)=0$, it holds that $\sum_{u \in N(v)} f(u) \geq 2$. The weight of an Italian dominating function is ...

This essay highlights why I chose to become a math and ELL teacher, as well as the challenges, issues, struggles, and successes I experienced during my time teaching. I focus on the challenges I faced teaching students who did not share my native ...


On Coding For Partial Erasure Channels, Carolyn Mayer 2018 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

On Coding For Partial Erasure Channels, Carolyn Mayer

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics

Error correcting codes have been essential to the technology we use in everyday life in digital storage, wireless communication, barcodes, and much more. Different channel models are used for different types of communication (for example, if information is sent to one person or to many people) and different types of errors. Partial erasure channels were recently introduced to model applications in which some information remains after an erasure event. These remnants of information may be used to increase the chances of successful decoding. We introduce a new partial erasure channel in which partial erasures correspond to individual bit erasures in ...
