Rings of quotients and localization
(19740530) 
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 ... 
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 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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
Differences in Google Analytics between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0: A case study
(200908)This thesis is designed to study the field of Google Analytics and apply it to realworld projects—the official website of Texas Woman's University and MatrixZK. The science of Google Analytics includes storing and analyzing ... 
Using data mining techniques to identify “the best” operational patterns for enrollment modeling
(200908)For any Educational Institution it is very important to know the number of new students and the number of returning students. Based on these numbers, there could be conducted predictions of the budget that the institution ... 
Success of entering college freshmen taking developmental mathematics at Texas Woman's University
(20110530)The purpose of this study was to measure the overall success in students' performances using several different variables in developmental mathematics when comparing the redesign and paired redesign course to traditionally ... 
The discriminant — From a quadratic equation to dynamic nonlinear systems
(201108)Most mathematics students don't understand the potential of the discriminant. Usually discussed while learning the Quadratic Formula to solve quadratic equations, students learn its use for the classification of type and ... 
Bayesian learning on dependent features
(20111230)Bayesian Learning is a robust machine learning algorithm. In addition to working well with limited sample sizes, Bayesian Learning also provides a probabilistic categorization. The caveat of performing a Bayesian Analysis ...
