A brief treatise on the Joukowski transformation
(Wichita State University, 195406)The problem of predicting the flight characteristics of an arbitrary airfoil is very complicated, and does not readily lend itself to exact mathematical methods. However if certain simplifying assumptions are made the ... 
A capillary surface with no radial limits
(Wichita State University, 201705)We begin by discussing the circumstances of capillary surfaces in regions with a corner, both concave and convex. These circumstances led to the (since proved) ConcusFinn Conjecture, which gives the requirements for a ... 
A comparative study of electroweak Higgs boson production at future Hadron Colliders
(Wichita State University, 201807)The discovery of the Higgs boson has opened the door to the next phase of exploration in particle physics. Since the Higgs boson was found in July 2012 at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), many researches and experiments ... 
A comparison of some numerical conformal mapping methods for simply and multiply connected domains
(Wichita State University, 201605)This dissertation compares several methods for computing conformal maps from simply and multiply connected domains bounded by circles to target domains bounded by smooth curves and curves with corners. We discuss the use ... 
A multiple decision procedure for testing with ordered alternatives
(Wichita State University, 201507)In testing hypotheses with ordered alternatives, the conclusion of an order restriction when rejecting the null hypothesis is very sensitive to the correctness of the assumed model. In other words, when the null hypothesis ... 
A pseudo restricted maximum likelihood estimator under multivariate simple tree order restriction and an algorithm
(Wichita State University, 202107)The minimum distance projection of a given matrix $X \in R^{pxq}$ onto the order restricted cone in an appropriately defined inner product system, $\pi(XC_{pxq}),$ plays an important role in order restricted statistical ... 
Advanced forecasting model on land market value based on USA real estate market
(Wichita State University, 201912)This research presents a time series estimation and prediction methods with the use of classic and advanced forecasting tools. Our discussion about di erent time series models is supported by giving the experimental forecast ... 
An analysis of the replies to the Kansas American Association of University Women's questionnaire on teacher welfare
(Wichita State University, 194805) 
Applications of the hCobordism Theorem
(Wichita State University, 201405)We provide an exposition of J. Milnor's proof of the hCobordism Theorem. This theorem states that a smooth, compact, simply connected ndimensional manifold W with n greater than or equal to 6, whose boundary boundaryW ... 
Applied topological data analysis to ElNiño Southern Oscillation
(Wichita State University, 202107)The El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the most powerful climate phenomena that can change global air circulation, affecting temperature and rainfall around the planet. ENSO has three phases: El Niño and La ... 
Classification of simply connected cohomogeneity one manifolds in lower dimensions
(Wichita State University, 201705)A cohomogeneity one manifold is a topological manifold with an effective topological action of a compact Lie group whose quotient is one dimensional. Cohomogeneity one manifolds were introduced by Mostert in 1957, however ... 
Composite optimal control for interconnected singularly perturbed systems
(Wichita State University, 201705)This dissertation deals with the design of a decentralized control and estimators for large scale interconnected singularly perturbed stochastic systems for system stabilization and cost minimization. Singular perturbation ... 
Computation of plane potential flow past multielement airfoils using conformal mapping, revisited
(Wichita State University, 201805)Calculations of potential ow and pressure over multielement airfoils are studied, using conformal maps. A composition of classical KarmanTre tz maps is used to smooth out the trailing edge corners successively, from ... 
Computation of Stokes waves using conformal mapping
(Wichita State University, 201605)In this paper we study the time dependent water wave problem for Stokes waves on water of infinite and finite depth using numerical conformal mapping techniques. We begin by briefly reviewing Fornberg's numerical conformal ... 
A computing method for multivariate isotonic regression
(Wichita State University, 201012) 
Concept study for observing galactic neutrinos in Neptune’s atmosphere
(Wichita State University, 202205)I discuss the feasibility of a conceptual spacebased neutrino detector that utilizes the Ice Giants as targets for galactic neutrinos. The purpose of this research stems from the concept of wanting to find a new method ... 
Conformal deformation of a conic metric
(Wichita State University, 201105)The problem studied here focuses on a compact manifold M without boundary in which the Riemannian metric g is on Λ = M – {p1, p2,…,pκ}. Near the pi 's, g has a particular type of singularity in which locally M = (0, δ)x ... 
Construction and solution of an inverse problem posed by "Piekara’s Chair"
(Wichita State University, 200805)The article "Piekara's Chair: Mechanical Model for Atomic Energy Levels" by Zofia GolabMeyer presents a model of the realworld problem of determining classical energy states suitable for high school or undergraduate ... 
Continuation of solutions of elliptic systems from discrete sets with application to geometry of surfaces
(Wichita State University, 201807)We obtain new estimates of stability for continuation of solutions of elliptic inequali ties  ∂u2 < = au2 from finite discrete sets. For this we use Hormander's type of Carleman estimates for ∂bar with boundary ... 
Covariance structures of Gaussian and logGaussian vector stochastic processes
(Wichita State University, 201212)Although the covariance structures of univariate Gaussian and log Gaussian stochastic processes have been extensively studied in the past few decades, the development of covariance structures for Gaussian and logGaussian ...
