#### Properties of Nonmetric Hereditarily Indecomposable Subcontinua of Finite Products of Lexicographic Arcs

(2009-11-09)

Nonmetric hereditarily indecomposable subcontinua of finite products of Lexicographic arcs are examined. It is shown that these subcontinua cannot intersect certain subsets of the products. Then nonmetric hereditarily ...

#### Genuine Sequential Estimation Procedures for Gamma Populations using Exact Evaluation Criteria

(2009-12-09)

In this dissertation, we develop genuine two-stage sequential procedures for bounded-risk and fixed-width confidence interval estimation for Gamma distributed populations, based on exact evaluation criteria. The term ...

#### Evading Triangles without a map

(2010-01-06)

We divise a heuristic which enables a traveler to traverse the plane from a start point S to a target point T while evading unknown obstacles. The obstacles are assumed to be equilateral triangles which are all translates ...

#### Coefficient Space Properties and a Schur Algebra Generalization

(2008-09-09)

Let K be an infinite field and Gamma = GL_(n)(K). If we linearly extend the natural action of Gamma on the set E of n-dimensional column vectors over K to the group algebra KGamma, then E becomes a KGamma-module. We then ...

#### Thin-Type Dense Sets and Related Properties

(2010-04-07)

Dense sets in topological spaces may be thought of as those which are ubiquitous. We discuss dense sets in product spaces which also have a thin-type property, making them in some sense rare or spread out. Thin-type ...

#### On the Conjugacy Theorems of Cartan and Borel Subalgebras

(2010-04-09)

We study the conjugacy theorems of Cartan subalgebras and Borel
subalgebras of general Lie algebras. We present a history of the problem, along with two proofs of the theorems which stay completely within the realm of ...

#### Fixed Points and Periodic Points of Orientation Reversing Planar Homeomorphisms

(2010-07-20)

Topological dynamics on surfaces is studied. The primary objects of study are orientation reversing homeomorphisms of the plane, but most of the results apply also to the orientation reversing homeomorphisms of the 2-sphere. ...

#### I-weight, special base properties and related covering properties

(2008-09-09)

Alleche, Arhangel'ski\u{\i} and Calbrix defined the notion of a sharp base and posed the question: Is there a regular space with a sharp base whose product with [0, 1] does not have a sharp base? Chapter 2 contains an ...

#### A-Stability For Two Species Competition Diffusion Systems

(2008-09-09)

My dissertation research focuses on establishing the structural
stability of the attractor ($\mathcal{A}$-stability) via Morse-Smale
property for diffusive two-species competition systems
\begin{equation}
\label{abst ...

#### Mixed Groups with Decomposition Bases and Global k-Groups

(2008-09-09)

This thesis is devoted to proving assertions made without proof by Paul Hill and Charles Megibben in their fundamental papers regarding knice subgroups and the Axiom 3 characterization of global Warfield groups. The main ...
