    Circular Nim is a two-player impartial combinatorial game consisting of n stacks of tokens placed in a circle. A move consists of choosing k consecutive stacks and taking at least one token from one or more stacks. The last player able to make a move . . .

    Consider D to be a finite set of positive integers. This thesis focuses on two parameters of D. The first parameter treats the elements of D as being the speeds of runners. This parameter, denoted kappa(D), is the value of the maximum possible distanc . . .

    Let G be a graph and let dG(u; v) be the distance between two vertices u and v in G. Let j and k be positive real numbers. An L(j; k)-labeling of G is a function, f : V (G) -> R+ U {0}, such that |f(u)-f(v)| > j if d(u; v) = 1; and |f(u)-f(v)| > k if . . .

    Let G be a simple connected graph. For any two vertices u and v, let d(u,v) denote the distance between u and v in G. A radio k-labeling of G for a fixed positive integer k, is a function f which assigns to each vertex a nonnegative integer label such . . .

    Pricing stock market data is difficult because it is inherently noisy and prone to unexpected events. However, stock market data generally exhibits trends in the medium and long term. A typical successful stock index exhibits an initiation phase, rapi . . .

    In set theory, the Axiom of Choice (AC) was formulated in 1904 by Ernst Zermelo. It is an addition to the older Zermelo-Fraenkel (ZF) set theory. We call it Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory with the Axiom of Choice and abbreviate it as ZFC. This paper star . . .

    We calculate the Kazhdan constant for the Paley graph of order p, where p is an odd prime. We provide a formula for the best possible lower bound in the limit. We obtain explicit formulas that are valid for particular classes of primes.

    A strong edge coloring of a graph G is an assignment of colors to the edges of G such that two distinct edges are colored differently if they have adjacent endpoints. The strong chromatic index of a graph G, denoted by χs′(G), is the minimu . . .

    In this thesis, we will explore the Kazhdan constant of finite cyclic groups and generating sets associated with Cayley graphs. It has been previously shown that a specific pair of groups and generating sets with isomorphic Cayley graphs yield the sam . . .

    If you have a polynomial f with real coefficients and want to know about the number and values of its real roots, there is no better tool than a Sturm sequence. This is a sequence of polynomials f0; f1; f2; : : : ; fn = f with the property that the va . . .

    Mathematical modeling is an important tool in epidemiology. It provides a way to understand the primary forces in disease dynamics, and to conduct theoretical experiments that are not possible in practice. In this paper, we study mathematical models t . . .

    In this thesis, we will recursively construct a sequence of groups using semidirect products. Using it, we will then construct a sequence of symmetric multi-subsets to generate a sequence of 3-regular Cayley graphs with logarithmic diameter. We will t . . .

    A multi-distance labeling (or radio labeling) of a graph G is a function f that assigns each vertex a non-negative integer label such that the separation of labels between distinct vertices u,v is at least diam(G) + 1−d(u,v), where the distance d(u,v) . . .

    In this thesis, we investigate the Kazhdan constant of groups and generating sets associated with Cayley graphs. In particular, we look at groups and generating sets that yield isomorphic Cayley graphs and compute their Kazhdan constants–in other word . . .

    This thesis concerns the existence of 2-groups with certain derived length, with a specified order of the quotient subgroups. Let a, b, c be positive integers. We will show that there exists a finite 2-group G of derived length 3 such that |G/G | = 2 . . .

    The Dutch artist M.C Escher became known to the mathematical community in 1954, at the time the British mathematician Sir Roger Penrose came up with the idea of the impossible triangle after seeing Escher’s lithograph Relativity. From 1937 to 1941, M. . . .
