In this thesis we address several questions around mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds and Calabi-Yau varieties. Fano mirror symmetry is a relationship between a Fano manifold X and a pair (Y,w) called a Landau-Ginzburg model, which consists of a manifold Y and a regular function w on Y. The goal...
The Indiana Bat (Myotis sodalis) population had decreased by 56% between 1967 and 2006. In summer 2006, a mysterious disease called “White Nose Syndrome” was first identified. Since then, the disease killed almost one million bats in North America. Many Biologists believe that both the...
In this work we will construct the table of irreducible characters for the group of unitary 2 x 2 matrices over a finite field. The table and the methods for its construction will show interesting connections to the table and methods of construction of the table of irreducible characters for the...
In this thesis, we generalize the notion of asymptotically hyperbolic mass (first introduced by Wang in 2001) to manifolds with toroidal ends. Using this generalized definition, we show that under a normalized Ricci flow with asymptotically hyperbolic, conformally compact initial data with a...
The Spread of the Mountain Pine Beetle: Challenges and Solutions in Large-scale Spatial Ecological ModelingDownload
The mountain pine beetle (MPB) is among the most destructive eruptive forest pests in North America. A recent increase in the frequency and severity of oubtreaks, combined with an eastward range expansion towards untouched boreal pine forests, has spurred a great interest by government, industry...
The Strong Restricted Isometry Property of Sub-Gaussian Matrices and the Erasure Robustness Property of Gaussian Random FramesDownload
In this thesis we will study the robustness property of sub-gaussian random matrices. We first show that the nearly isometry property will still hold with high probability if we erase a certain portion of rows from a sub-gaussian matrix, and we will estimate the erasure ratio with a given small...
This thesis deals with the Trotter-Kato approximation in utility maximization. The Trotter-Kato approximation is a method to split a differential equation into two parts, which are then solved iteratively over small time intervals. In the context of utility maximization, this procedure was...
The affine vertex superalgebra A=L^1(D(2,1;-v/w)) plays a key role as the geometric Langlands kernel VOA for SVOAs associated to so(3), osp(1|2) and other rank one Lie superalgbras. Since D(2,1;a) is an extension of the direct sum of 3 copies of sl(2), A can be naturally realized as an...
