Challenges the airline industry faces at present
(1/31/2019)The competition among businesses operating in the airline industry has become highly intense. This has resulted in creating different types of obstacles for those organizations. For instance, companies are now required to ... 
Modeling autoimmune disease with differential equations
(10/3/2018)In this project, I will build a mathematical model of a developed autoimmune process considering cell autoimmunity that plays the main role in any autoimmune disorder using a system of three nonlinear differential equations. ... 
Mathematical modeling and control of MERSCoV epidemics
(11/20/2017)Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERSCoV) is a viral infectious disease that can be transmitted to humans through interaction with infected animals or humans. In this thesis, we will investigate the basic ... 
Investigation of instructional methods in a community college course
(12/4/2017)Community colleges have an opendoor policy. With this opendoor policy, many students enter the college underprepared for college level courses and require college preparatory courses in reading, writing, and/or mathematics. ... 
Rings of quotients and localization

Sublattices of the lattice of topologies
(Texas Woman's University, 19750530) 
A student information system for microcomputers
(Texas Woman's University, 19811231) 
Levers: a computerassisted instruction

The lattice of subgroups of finite groups
(198212) 
Finite inductive sequence: Factoring technique
(199712)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). ... 
Inverting a positive definite matrix: A comparative study of two algorithms
(199912)The purpose of the paper is to investigate the efficiency of two matrixinverting algorithms that are restricted to positive definite matrices. The selected algorithms are a GuassJordan method and a gradient projection ... 
Modeling nurseentry success by integrating student characteristics with gateway course performance
(2/5/2020)Decades of undergraduate retention research has uncovered common predictors of student success and methods, such as earlyalert intervention, that promote persistence among academically atrisk students. This study addresses ... 
Ray tracing in 3D graphics
(200012)The purpose of the study is to analyze the properties and functions of ray tracing, and to describe realistic 3D graphics applications. Ray tracing can be described as a global illumination based rendering method. Rays of ... 
Optimal Control Theory applied to a cooperative game between a manufacturer and a retailer
(200605)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 ... 
A propositional calculus: Based on the Łukasiewicz's system
(200612)In Symbolic Logic, 5th Ed., by Irving M. Copi (Copi, 1979), there is a problem asking for the proof of the independence of each axiom from a set of axioms for a propositional calculus. This problem reads: 4. The Łukasiewicz's ... 
The inverse problem to the Voronoi diagram
(200705)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 ... 
A polychotomous, multivariate regression model predicting performance level in a core mathematics course
(200812)Enrolling students in a mathematics course commensurate with their performance ability is of great importance to mathematics departments at all institutions of higher learning. This research will utilize preexisting ... 
A longitudinal analysis using auxiliary information to model retention in undergraduate students
(200812)Attrition is an issue for colleges and universities, and attempts to retain students are becoming more and more difficult. This study focuses on predicting student attrition of first time incoming (FTIC) students over a ... 
Optimal control of a biological wastewater treatment plant
(200905)In this paper a mathematical model of a biological waste cleaning plant is created and investigated. The model is described by a nonlinear system of two differential equations with one bounded control. An optimal control ...
