In this thesis we address several questions around mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds and CalabiYau varieties. Fano mirror symmetry is a relationship between a Fano manifold X and a pair (Y,w) called a LandauGinzburg model, which consists of a manifold Y and a regular function w on Y. The goal...

This thesis focuses on characterizing the optimal consumption and investment strategy for an investor, in a simple financial market, when his consumption habit is considered in the utility formulation. We consider a continuoustime market model for which we maximize the overall utility within an...

BACKGROUND: Despite the overall decline in tuberculosis (TB) incidence in Canada, rates among Indigenous peoples have not decreased since the late 1990s. Ongoing transmission associated with the time from the onset of symptoms to treatment have been identified as major contributor to the...

For matchedpair data with a multinomial reponse, the StuartMaxwell test (1955, 1970) and the Bhapkar test (1966) are commonly used to test the marginal homogeneity. However, in medical research, many studies for assess ing safety consider multiple multinomial endpoints to detect the treatment...

Credit risk management, which deals with mitigating losses from lending activities, is crucial for financial institutions. Hence, credit risk modelling can be employed to reduce potential losses and avoid financial crises. There are sometimes monotonic relationships in credit risk models, which...
