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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Definition Of A Method For The Formulation Of Problems To Be Solved With High Performance Computing, 2016 Kennesaw State University

#### Definition Of A Method For The Formulation Of Problems To Be Solved With High Performance Computing, Ramya Peruri

*Master of Science in Computer Science Theses*

Computational power made available by current technology has been continuously increasing, however today’s problems are larger and more complex and demand even more computational power. Interest in computational problems has also been increasing and is an important research area in computer science. These complex problems are solved with computational models that use an underlying mathematical model and are solved using computer resources, simulation, and are run with High Performance Computing. For such computations, parallel computing has been employed to achieve high performance. This thesis identifies families of problems that can best be solved using modelling and implementation techniques of ...

Newsvendor Models With Monte Carlo Sampling, 2016 East Tennessee State University

#### Newsvendor Models With Monte Carlo Sampling, Ijeoma W. Ekwegh

*Electronic Theses and Dissertations*

Newsvendor Models with Monte Carlo Sampling by Ijeoma Winifred Ekwegh The newsvendor model is used in solving inventory problems in which demand is random. In this thesis, we will focus on a method of using Monte Carlo sampling to estimate the order quantity that will either maximizes revenue or minimizes cost given that demand is uncertain. Given data, the Monte Carlo approach will be used in sampling data over scenarios and also estimating the probability density function. A bootstrapping process yields an empirical distribution for the order quantity that will maximize the expected proﬁt. Finally, this method will be used ...

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.
