Seducing The Single Ticket Buyer: Converting Single Ticket Buyers To Subscribers At The Binghamton Philharmonic, Lauren F. Elicks 2010 Binghamton University--SUNY

Seducing The Single Ticket Buyer: Converting Single Ticket Buyers To Subscribers At The Binghamton Philharmonic, Lauren F. Elicks

MPA Capstone Projects 2006 - 2015

Declining interests in classical music have left many performances based organizations scrambling to maintain subscriptions rates, ticket revenue and attendance. The Binghamton Philharmonic has a substantial single ticket buyer base which if converted to subscribers, would secure revenue and attendance to each season. This study explores the motivations and attendance levels of Binghamton Philharmonic single ticket buyer population. Using frequency distribution charts, cross-tabular analysis and independent samples t-tests, variables of motivation were compared to the single ticket and subscriber population.This project discusses the factors affecting single ticket buyer motivations for attendance, effective methods for encouraging greater attendance, and provides ...


High Order Finite Elements For Lagrangian Computational Fluid Dynamics, Truman Everett Ellis 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

High Order Finite Elements For Lagrangian Computational Fluid Dynamics, Truman Everett Ellis

Master's Theses

A general finite element method is presented to solve the Euler equations in a Lagrangian reference frame. This FEM framework allows for separate arbitrarily high order representation of kinematic and thermodynamic variables. An accompanying hydrodynamics code written in Matlab is presented as a test-bed to experiment with various basis function choices. A wide range of basis function pairs are postulated and a few choices are developed further, including the bi-quadratic Q2-Q1d and Q2-Q2d elements. These are compared with a corresponding pair of low order bi-linear elements, traditional Q1-Q0 and sub-zonal pressure Q1-Q1d. Several test problems are considered including static convergence ...

Screening And Sufficiency In Multiobjective Decision Problems With Large Alternative Sets, Michael D. Cote 2010 Air Force Institute of Technology

Screening And Sufficiency In Multiobjective Decision Problems With Large Alternative Sets, Michael D. Cote

Theses and Dissertations

Portfolio selection problems with combinatorially-large alternative sets can be impossible to evaluate precisely on a reasonable timescale. When portfolios require complex modeling for performance assessment, prohibitive computational processing times can result. Eliminating a small number of alternatives through an intelligent screening process can greatly reduce the number of alternative combinations, thereby decreasing a problem's evaluation time and cost. A methodology was developed for the class of hierarchical portfolio selection problems in which multiple objectives are all judged on the same sub-objectives. First, a novel capability-based alternative screening process was devised to identify and remove poor alternatives, thereby reducing the ...


Selective Recursive Kernel Learning For Online Identification Of Nonlinear Systems With Narx Form, Yi Liu, Haiqing Wang, Jiang Yu, Ping Li 2010 Zhejiang University

Selective Recursive Kernel Learning For Online Identification Of Nonlinear Systems With Narx Form, Yi Liu, Haiqing Wang, Jiang Yu, Ping Li

Dr. Yi Liu

Online identification of nonlinear systems is still an important while difficult task in practice. A general and simple online identification method, namely Selective Recursive Kernel Learning (SRKL), is proposed for multi-input–multi-output (MIMO) systems with the nonlinear autoregressive with exogenous input form. A two-stage RKL online identification framework is first formulated, where the information contained by a sample (i.e., the new arriving or old useless one) can be introduced into and/or deleted from the model, recursively. Then, a sparsification strategy to restrict the model complexity is developed to guarantee all the output channels of the MIMO model accurate ...


Fast Protein Structure Alignment, Yosi Shibberu, Allen Holder, Kyla Lutz 2010 Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

Fast Protein Structure Alignment, Yosi Shibberu, Allen Holder, Kyla Lutz

Mathematical Sciences Technical Reports (MSTR)

We address the problem of aligning the 3D structures of two proteins. Our pairwise comparisons are based on a new optimization model that is succinctly expressed in terms of linear transformations and highlights the problem’s intrinsic geometry. The optimization problem is approximately solved with a new polynomial time algorithm. The worst case analysis of the algorithm shows that the solution is bounded by a constant depending only on the data of the problem.

Modeling And Optimal Control Of A Nonlinear Dynamical System In Microbial Fed-Batch Fermentation Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong, Enmin Feng 2010 Shandong Institute of Business and Technology

Modeling And Optimal Control Of A Nonlinear Dynamical System In Microbial Fed-Batch Fermentation Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong, Enmin Feng

Chongyang Liu

The mathematical model and optimal control of microbial fed-batch fermentation is considered in this paper. Since it is decisive for increasing the productivity of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) to optimize the feeding rate of glycerol and the switching instants between the batch and feeding processes in the fermentation process, we propose a new nonlinear dynamical system to formulate the process. In the system, the switching instants are variable and the feeding rate of glycerol is regarded as the control function. Some important properties of the proposed system and its solution are then discussed. To maximize the concentration of 1,3-PD ...

Oscillatory And Monotonic Modes Of Long-Wave Marangoni Convection In A Thin Film, Sergey Shklyaev, Mikhail Khenner, Alexei Alabuzhev 2010 Western Kentucky University

Oscillatory And Monotonic Modes Of Long-Wave Marangoni Convection In A Thin Film, Sergey Shklyaev, Mikhail Khenner, Alexei Alabuzhev

Mikhail Khenner

We study long-wave Marangoni convection in a layer heated from below. Using the scaling k=OBi, where k is the wave number and Bi is the Biot number, we derive a set of amplitude equations. Analysis of this set shows presence of monotonic and oscillatory modes of instability. Oscillatory mode has not been previously found for such direction of heating. Studies of weakly nonlinear dynamics demonstrate that stable steady and oscillatory patterns can be found near the stability threshold.


From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, Bo Deng 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, Bo Deng

Faculty Publications, Department of Mathematics

The purpose of this paper is to incorporate well-established ecological principles into a foodweb model consisting of four trophic levels --- abiotic resources, plants, herbivores, and carnivores. The underlining principles include Kimura's neutral theory of genetic evolution, Liebig's Law of the Minimum for plant growth, Holling's functionals for herbivore foraging and carnivore predation, the One-Life Rule for all organisms, and Lotka-Volterra's model for intraand interspecific competitions. Numerical simulations of the model led to the following statistical findings: (a) particular foodwebs can give contradicting observations on biodiversity and productivity, in particular, all known functional forms -- - positive, negative, sigmoidal ...
