A graphtheoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions for coupled systems on networks
DownloadFall 2010
For coupled systems of differential equations on networks, a graphtheoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions is systematically developed in this thesis. Kirchhoff’s MatrixTree Theorem in graph theory plays an essential role in the approach’s development. The approach is...

Fall 2009
This thesis is concerned with the analysis of the control design to the nonlinear networked control systems (NCSs). Ignoring the network connection and cascading actuators, the plant and sensors together, a sampleddata system is obtained. The stabilization problem of nonlinear sampleddata...

This work develops numerical methods (finite difference methods) for equations of fluid dynamics and equations of elasticity reformulated in the stress variables (as opposed to natural variables) and applies them to the FluidStructure Interac tion (FSI) problem using a new model based on the...

A simulationbased approach to assess the goodness of fit of Exponential Random Graph Models
DownloadFall 2010
Exponential Random Graph Models (ERGMs) have been developed for fitting social network data on both static and dynamic levels. However, the lack of large sample asymptotic properties makes it inadequate in assessing the goodnessoffit of these ERGMs. Simulationbased goodnessoffit plots were...

Fall 2010
After the scientific problem of interest is defined, collecting data is the first stage of any statistical analyses. The question of how large the sample should be is thus of great interest. In this thesis we demonstrate that in a geostatistical experiment determining the minimum sample size to...

Fall 2013
Given a conformal superalgebra A over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic zero, a twisted loop conformal superalgebra L based on A has a differential conformal superalgebra structure over the differential Laurent polynomial ring D. In this context, L is a Dm/D–form of A \otimes D...
