Cholera remains epidemic and endemic in the world, causing thousands of deaths annually in locations lacking adequate sanitation and water infrastructure. Yet its dynamics are still not fully understood. An indirectly transmitted infectious disease model, called an iSIR model, was recently...

Let n ≥ 3 and B ⊂ ℝⁿ. The Illumination Conjecture states that the minimal number I(B) of directions/‘light sources’ that illuminate the boundary of a convex body B, which is not the affine image of a cube, is strictly less than 2ⁿ. The conjecture in most cases is widely open, and it has only been...

We first find all the irreducible complex characters of the general linear group GL(2, Z/p^l Z) over the ring Z/p^l Z, where l is an integer >1 and p is an odd prime, and determine all the character values. Our methods rely on Clifford Theory and can be modified easily to get all the irreducible...

The two families of quantum groups of Yangians and quantum loop algebras have a library of similar results on their structures and representation theories. Not until Gautam and ToledanoLaredo’s works in the past decade has there been an explanation for these correspondences. We present a...

In this note we present a construction which improves the best known bound on the minimal dispersion of large volume boxes in the unit cube. The dispersion of a subset of the cube is the supremal volume over all axis parallel boxes in the cube which do not intersect the given subset. The minimal...

This thesis introduces a new class of robust estimators for regression mod els. Specifically, a class of weighted least square estimators under linear re gression models is introduced in Chapter 2, with a continuous adaptive weight function computed using the KolmogorovSmirnov statistic....

Relationships between network connectivity and global dynamics of complex dynamical systems
DownloadSpring 2016
The global dynamics of complex systems is investigated in this thesis, using the framework of coupled dynamical systems. For a coupled dynamical system on an interaction network, we show the impact of the connectivity of the interaction network on its dynamical behavior. We lay particular...
