Parametric Art, Shaun Pollard, Daanial Ahmad, Satyanand Singh

Publications and Research

Lissajous curves, named after Jules Antoine Lissajous (1822-1880) are generated by the parametric equations 𝑥=𝐴𝑐𝑜𝑠(𝑎𝑡) and 𝑦=𝐵𝑠𝑖𝑛(𝑏𝑡) in its simplistic form. Others have studied these curves and their applications like Nathaniel Bowditch in 1815, and they are often referred to as Bowditch curves as well. Lissajous curves are found in engineering, mathematics, graphic design, physics, and many other backgrounds. In this project entitled “Parametric Art” this project will focus on analyzing these types of equations and manipulating them to create art. We will be investigating these curves by answering a series of questions that elucidate their ...


Applying The Data: Predictive Analytics In Sport, Anthony Teeter, Margo Bergman 2020 University of Washington, Tacoma

Applying The Data: Predictive Analytics In Sport, Anthony Teeter, Margo Bergman

Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship

The history of wagering predictions and their impact on wide reaching disciplines such as statistics and economics dates to at least the 1700’s, if not before. Predicting the outcomes of sports is a multibillion-dollar business that capitalizes on these tools but is in constant development with the addition of big data analytics methods. Sportsline.com, a popular website for fantasy sports leagues, provides odds predictions in multiple sports, produces proprietary computer models of both winning and losing teams, and provides specific point estimates. To test likely candidates for inclusion in these prediction algorithms, the authors developed a computer model ...


Controlling Aircraft Yaw Movement By Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Logic, Yamama Shafeek, Laith Majeed, Rasha Naji 2020 University of Technology, Iraq

Controlling Aircraft Yaw Movement By Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Logic, Yamama Shafeek, Laith Majeed, Rasha Naji

Emirates Journal for Engineering Research

Aircraft yaw movement is essential in maneuvering; it has been controlled by some methods which achieved tracking but not fast enough. This paper performs the dynamic modeling of aircraft yaw movement and develops PI and PI-like interval type-2 fuzzy logic controller for the model. The mathematical model is derived by inserting the parameters values of single-engine Navion aircraft into standard equations. Using Matlab/ Simulink platform, the controllers' effectivity is tested and verified in two different cases; system without disturbance and when system is disturbed by some wind gust to investigate the system robustness. Simulation results show that PI controller response ...


Statistical Methods For Resolving Intratumor Heterogeneity With Single-Cell Dna Sequencing, Alexander Davis 2020 The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Statistical Methods For Resolving Intratumor Heterogeneity With Single-Cell Dna Sequencing, Alexander Davis

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Dissertations and Theses (Open Access)

Tumor cells have heterogeneous genotypes, which drives progression and treatment resistance. Such genetic intratumor heterogeneity plays a role in the process of clonal evolution that underlies tumor progression and treatment resistance. Single-cell DNA sequencing is a promising experimental method for studying intratumor heterogeneity, but brings unique statistical challenges in interpreting the resulting data. Researchers lack methods to determine whether sufficiently many cells have been sampled from a tumor. In addition, there are no proven computational methods for determining the ploidy of a cell, a necessary step in the determination of copy number. In this work, software for calculating probabilities from ...

Some Summation Theorems For Clausen’S Hypergeometric Functions With Unit Argument, M. I. Qureshi, Mohammad Shadab

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

Motivated by the work on hypergeometric summation theorems, we establish new summation formula for Clausen’s hypergeometric function with unit argument in terms of pi and natural logarithms of some rational and irrational numbers. For the application purpose, we derive some new and modified summation theorems for Clausen’s hypergeometric functions using our new formula.

Some Contiguous Relation On K-Generalised Hypergeometric Function, Ekta Mittal, Sunil Joshi, Sona Kumari

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

In this research work our aim is to determine some contiguous relations and some integral transform of the k-generalised hypergeometric functions, by using the concept of “k-Gamma and k-Beta function”. “Obviously if k approaches 1”, then the contiguous function relations become Gauss contiguous relations.


Phylogenetic Networks And Functions That Relate Them, Drew Scalzo 2020 The University of Akron

Phylogenetic Networks And Functions That Relate Them, Drew Scalzo

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

Phylogenetic Networks are defined to be simple connected graphs with exactly n labeled nodes of degree one, called leaves, and where all other unlabeled nodes have a degree of at least three. These structures assist us with analyzing ancestral history, and its close relative - phylogenetic trees - garner the same visualization, but without the graph being forced to be connected. In this paper, we examine the various characteristics of Phylogenetic Networks and functions that take these networks as inputs, and convert them to more complex or simpler structures. Furthermore, we look at the nature of functions as they relate to the ...


Symbolic Construction Of Matrix Functions In A Numerical Environment, Evan D. Butterworth 2020 Georgia Southern University

Symbolic Construction Of Matrix Functions In A Numerical Environment, Evan D. Butterworth

Honors College Theses

Within the field of Computational Science, the importance of programs and tools involving systems of differential equations cannot be overemphasized. Many industrial sites, such as nuclear power facilities, are unable to safely operate without these systems. This research explores and studies matrix differential equations and their applications to real computing structures. Through the use of software such as MatLab, I have constructed a toolbox, or collection, of programs that will allow any user to easily calculate a variety of matrix functions. The first tool in this collection is a program that computes the matrix exponential, famously studied and presented by ...


General Nonlinear-Material Elasticity In Classical One-Dimensional Solid Mechanics, Ronald Joseph Giardina Jr 2019 University of New Orleans

General Nonlinear-Material Elasticity In Classical One-Dimensional Solid Mechanics, Ronald Joseph Giardina Jr

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

We will create a class of generalized ellipses and explore their ability to define a distance on a space and generate continuous, periodic functions. Connections between these continuous, periodic functions and the generalizations of trigonometric functions known in the literature shall be established along with connections between these generalized ellipses and some spectrahedral projections onto the plane, more specifically the well-known multifocal ellipses. The superellipse, or Lam\'{e} curve, will be a special case of the generalized ellipse. Applications of these generalized ellipses shall be explored with regards to some one-dimensional systems of classical mechanics. We will adopt the Ramberg-Osgood ...


Algorithms To Approximate Solutions Of Poisson's Equation In Three Dimensions, Ray Dambrose 2019 University of Mary Washington

Algorithms To Approximate Solutions Of Poisson's Equation In Three Dimensions, Ray Dambrose

Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal

The focus of this research was to develop numerical algorithms to approximate solutions of Poisson's equation in three dimensional rectangular prism domains. Numerical analysis of partial differential equations is vital to understanding and modeling these complex problems. Poisson's equation can be approximated with a finite difference approximation. A system of equations can be formed that gives solutions at internal points of the domain. A computer program was developed to solve this system with inputs such as boundary conditions and a nonhomogenous source function. Approximate solutions are compared with exact solutions to prove their accuracy. The program is tested ...

Radial Basis Function Generated Finite Differences For The Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Justin Ng 2018 Air Force Institute of Technology

Radial Basis Function Generated Finite Differences For The Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation, Justin Ng

Theses and Dissertations

Solutions to the one-dimensional and two-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation are obtained numerically using methods based on radial basis functions (RBFs). Periodic boundary conditions are enforced with a non-periodic initial condition over varying domain sizes. The spatial structure of the solutions is represented using RBFs while several explicit and implicit iterative methods for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) are used in temporal discretization for the approximate solutions to the NLS equation. Splitting schemes, integration factors and hyperviscosity are used to stabilize the time-stepping schemes and are compared with one another in terms of computational efficiency and accuracy. This thesis shows ...


Ns-Cross Entropy-Based Magdm Under Single-Valued Neutrosophic Set Environment, Florentin Smarandache, Surapati Pramanik, Shyamal Dalapati, Shariful Alam, Tapan Kumar Roy 2018 University of New Mexico

Ns-Cross Entropy-Based Magdm Under Single-Valued Neutrosophic Set Environment, Florentin Smarandache, Surapati Pramanik, Shyamal Dalapati, Shariful Alam, Tapan Kumar Roy

Mathematics and Statistics Faculty and Staff Publications

A single-valued neutrosophic set has king power to express uncertainty characterized by indeterminacy, inconsistency and incompleteness. Most of the existing single-valued neutrosophic cross entropy bears an asymmetrical behavior and produces an undefined phenomenon in some situations. In order to deal with these disadvantages, we propose a new cross entropy measure under a single-valued neutrosophic set (SVNS) environment, namely NS-cross entropy, and prove its basic properties. Also we define weighted NS-cross entropy measure and investigate its basic properties. We develop a novel multi-attribute group decision-making (MAGDM) strategy that is free from the drawback of asymmetrical behavior and undefined phenomena. It is ...

A Compact Minimal Space Whose Cartesian Square Is Not Minimal, Jan P. Boronski, Alex Clark, Piotr Oprocha 2017 AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow

A Compact Minimal Space Whose Cartesian Square Is Not Minimal, Jan P. Boronski, Alex Clark, Piotr Oprocha

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

A compact metric space X is called minimal if it admits a minimal homeomorphism; i.e. a homeomorphism h:X→ X such that the forward orbit {hn(x):n=1, 2, ...} is dense in X, for every x ∈ X. In my talk I shall outline a construction of a family of 1-dimensional minimal spaces from "A compact minimal space Y such that its square YxY is not minimal" whose existence answer the following long standing problem in the negative.

Problem. Is minimality preserved under Cartesian product in the class of compact spaces?

Note that for the fixed point property ...


A New Class Of Dendrites Having Unique Second Symmetric Product, David Maya, José G. Anaya, Fernando Orozco Zitli 2017 Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico

A New Class Of Dendrites Having Unique Second Symmetric Product, David Maya, José G. Anaya, Fernando Orozco Zitli

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

The second symmetric product of a continuum X, F2(X), is the hyperspace consisting of all nonempty subsets of X having at most two points. A continuum X has unique hyperspace F2(X) provided that each continuum Y satisfying that F2(X) and F2(Y) are homeomorphic must be homeomorphic to X. In this talk, a new class of dendrites having unique F2(X) will be presented.


Cohen Reals And The Sequential Order Of Groups, Alexander Shibakov 2017 Tennessee Technological University

Cohen Reals And The Sequential Order Of Groups, Alexander Shibakov

Summer Conference on Topology and Its Applications

We show that adding uncountably many Cohen reals to a model of diamond results in a model with no countable sequential group with an intermediate sequential order. The same model has an uncountable group of sequential order 2. We also discuss related questions.
