Retention is a genuine, valid apprehension for many two-year colleges and four-year universities in the United States. As many as 1 in 3 first-year students do not return for the sophomore year due to variety of reasons, ...

#### An exploration of mathematical proofs

(2016-08-31)

The purpose of this thesis is to teach methods of proving statements in mathematics. We will be dissecting proven statements and examining the individual steps to gain a greater understanding on how to prove statements. ...

#### The element effect in methoxide ion substitution of the (Z) and (E) isomers of O-methyl-4-methoxybenzohydroximoyl halides

(1997-08)

The (Z) and (E) isomers ofO-methyl-4-methoxybenzohydroximoyl
chloride [p-OCH3ArC( Cl )=NOCH3] and 0-methyl-4-methoxybenzohyd roximoyl
bromide [p-OCH3ArC(Br)=NOCH3] were synthesized, and the rates of
methoxide substitution ...

#### Finite inductive sequence: Factoring technique

(1997-12)

This thesis considers finite sequences of symbols extracted from an alphabet set. In this case, the alphabet set is the positive integers. The underlying hypotheses is that such finite sequence is finitely inductive (FI). ...

#### Predicting success in a mathematics course

(2017-05-30)

Retention is a genuine, valid apprehension for many two-year colleges and four-year universities in the United States. As many as 1 in 3 first-year students do not return for the sophomore year due to variety of reasons, ...

#### Optimal Control Theory applied to a cooperative game between a manufacturer and a retailer

(2006-05)

In this work, we consider a process of production, storage and sales of a perishable consumer good as a cooperative game between a manufacturer and a retailer. Both parties want to choose such a strategy (optimal production ...

#### Modeling symbiosis by a Lotka-Volterra-type system of differential equations

(2013-05)

Biological symbiosis is necessary for life on earth. However, population based models of symbiosis are rare in literature. One problem is defining symbiosis, and whether is includes mutualism, commensalism and parasitism, ...

#### The inverse problem to the Voronoi diagram

(2007-05)

The primary purpose of this thesis is to address the problem of solving the Inverse Problem for the Voronoi Diagram where the Inverse Problem is: Given a diagram that is in fact a Voronoi Diagram find the set of points X ...

#### Synthesis, characterization, and lighting applications of group 11 metallopolymers with tunable phosphorescence

(2009-12)

This thesis with it 66 pp., 3 tables, 26 Figures and references is a study of group 11 monovalent metallopolymers. Three major chapters that involve synthetic strategies to obtain and enhance the phosphorescence of luminescent ...
