### A Brief Survey of Hyperspaces and a Construction of a Whitney Map

(2009-08-03)

This paper is a brief survey of hyperspaces of topological spaces. In particular, the hyperspace of all nonempty compact subsets of a space and the hyperspace of all nonempty subcontinua of a space with the Vietoris topology. ...

### Development of Striae Distensae - A Mechanochemical Model

(2008-09-09)

Striae distensae, otherwise known as stretch marks, are common skin lesions found
in a variety of clinical settings. They occur frequently during adolescence or pregnancy
when there is rapid tissue expansion, but may ...

### A novel finite element discretization of domains with spheroidal geometry

(2008-09-09)

We describe and analyze a new finite element discretizations for domains with spheroidal
geometry. In particular, we describe how the method can be used to approximate solutions
as well as eigenvalues and eigenfunctions ...

### Hamilton Decompositions of Graphs with Primitive Complements

(2008-09-09)

A graph G is a pair (V, E) where V is the set of vertices(or nodes) and E is the set of edges connecting the vertices. A graph is called k-regular, if all of its vertices are incident with k edges. A k-factor of a graph G ...

### Robust Nonparametric Discriminant Analysis Procedures

(2009-02-23)

In this study, a nonparametric discriminant analysis procedure that is less sensitive than traditional procedures to deviations from the usual assumptions is proposed. The procedure uses the projection pursuit methodology ...

### Exact Comparision of Hazard Rate Functions of Log-Logistic Survival Distributions

(2009-02-23)

A comparison of hazard rates of multiple treatments are compared under the assumption that survival times follow the log-logistic distribution. Exact test procedures are developed for ordered comparisons of the worst case ...

### 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 ...

### 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 ...

### The Lattice Gas Model and Lattice Boltzmann Model on Hexagonal Grids

(2008-09-09)

We present an overview of the FHP model and the Lattice BGK model. Details regarding boundary conditions and initial conditions are discussed throught implementations on driven cavity flow, Poiseuille flow, and flow past ...

### A Study of Polya's Enumeration Theorem

(2008-09-09)

The controversial lemma, known most commonly as Burnside's Lemma, is stated and proven. The influential Polya's Enumeration Theorem is stated and proven. Computations using Polya's Enumeration Theorem are discussed and ...
