Model Theory Of Groups And Monoids, Laura M. Lopez Cruz 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Model Theory Of Groups And Monoids, Laura M. Lopez Cruz

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

We first show that arithmetic is bi-interpretable (with parameters) with the free monoid and with partially commutative monoids with trivial center. This bi-interpretability implies that these monoids have the QFA property and that finitely generated submonoids of these monoids are definable. Moreover, we show that any recursively enumerable language in a finite alphabet X with two or more generators is definable in the free monoid. We also show that for metabelian Baumslag-Solitar groups and for a family of metabelian restricted wreath products, the Diophantine Problem is decidable. That is, we provide an algorithm that decides whether or not a given ...


Bubble-In Digital Testing System, Chaz Hampton 2020 California State University, San Bernardino

Bubble-In Digital Testing System, Chaz Hampton

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Bubble-In is a cloud-based test-taking system build for students and teachers. The Bubble-In system is a test-taking application that interfaces with a cloud server. The mobile applications have been built for Android and Apple devices and the webserver is hosted on Digital Ocean VPS run with Nginx. The Bubble-In application is equipped with anti-cheating mechanisms such as question-answer key scrambling, not allowing screenshots, screen recording, or leaving the application. The tests students take are sent to the webserver to be graded and have statistics calculated and displayed in easy to use format for the test creator. Instructors can use the ...


Dna Complexes Of One Bond-Edge Type, Andrew Tyler Lavengood-Ryan 2020 California State University - San Bernardino

Dna Complexes Of One Bond-Edge Type, Andrew Tyler Lavengood-Ryan

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

DNA self-assembly is an important tool used in the building of nanostructures and targeted virotherapies. We use tools from graph theory and number theory to encode the biological process of DNA self-assembly. The principal component of this process is to examine collections of branched junction molecules, called pots, and study the types of structures that such pots can realize. In this thesis, we restrict our attention to pots which contain identical cohesive-ends, or a single bond-edge type, and we demonstrate the types and sizes of structures that can be built based on a single characteristic of the pot that is ...


Research In Short Term Actuarial Modeling, Elijah Howells 2020 California State University, San Bernardino

Research In Short Term Actuarial Modeling, Elijah Howells

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

This paper covers mathematical methods used to conduct actuarial analysis in the short term, such as policy deductible analysis, maximum covered loss analysis, and mixtures of distributions. Assessment of a loss variable's distribution under the effect of a policy deductible, as well as one with an implemented maximum covered loss, and under both a policy deductible and maximum covered loss will also be covered. The derivation, meaning, and use of cost per loss and cost per payment will be discussed, as will those of an aggregate sum distribution, stop loss policy, and maximum likelihood estimation. For each topic, special ...


Comparing Means Under Heteroscedasticity And Nonnormality: Further Exploring Robust Means Modeling, Alyssa Counsell, Robert Philip Chalmers, Robert A. Cribbie 2020 York University, Toronto

Comparing Means Under Heteroscedasticity And Nonnormality: Further Exploring Robust Means Modeling, Alyssa Counsell, Robert Philip Chalmers, Robert A. Cribbie

Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods

Comparing the means of independent groups is a concern when the assumptions of normality and variance homogeneity are violated. Robust means modeling (RMM) was proposed as an alternative to ANOVA-type procedures when the assumptions of normality and variance homogeneity are violated. The purpose of this study is to compare the Type I error and power rates of RMM to the trimmed Welch procedure. A Monte Carlo study was used to investigate RMM and the trimmed Welch procedure under several conditions of nonnormality and variance heterogeneity. The results suggest that the trimmed Welch provides a better balance of Type I error ...


Inferences About The Probability Of Success, Given The Value Of A Covariate, Using A Nonparametric Smoother, Rand Wilcox 2020 University of Southern California

Inferences About The Probability Of Success, Given The Value Of A Covariate, Using A Nonparametric Smoother, Rand Wilcox

Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods

For a binary random variable Y, let p(x) = P(Y = 1 | X = x) for some covariate X. The goal of computing a confidence interval for p(x) is considered. In the logistic regression model, even a slight departure difficult to detect via a goodness-of-fit test can yield inaccurate results. The accuracy of a confidence interval can deteriorate as the sample size increases. The goal is to suggest an alternative approach based on a smoother, which provides a more flexible approximation of p(x).


A Note On Inferences About The Probability Of Success, Rand Wilcox 2020 University of Southern California

A Note On Inferences About The Probability Of Success, Rand Wilcox

Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods

There is an extensive literature dealing with inferences about the probability of success. A minor goal in this note is to point out when certain recommended methods can be unsatisfactory when the sample size is small. The main goal is to report results on the two-sample case. Extant results suggest using one of four methods. The results indicate when computing a 0.95 confidence interval, two of these methods can be more satisfactory when dealing with small sample sizes.
