DataDriven Discovery of Ordinary Differential Equations
(20190401)We suggest that using datadriven methods on collected sensor data, we can recreate the ordinary differential equation. In this case we are applying data to find the ODE as opposed to deriving an ODE from basic principles. ... 
DEM Simulations of Surface Ice Flow in River Channels
(19920401)The characteristics of ice flow in rivers are not well understood. In order to better understand surface ice flow, computer model Ice_Flow_Poly has been developed. Ice_Flow_Poly is based on a relatively new technique called ... 
Development and use of KulikovskiySveshnikovaBeghin (KSB) model for avalanches and its application to slide paths of central Montana
(20130401)The number of people heading into the backcounrty in winter is increasing every year. This increase in travel heightens the risk for human injury due to avalanches, a powerful natural event. The KulikovskiySveshnikovaBeghin ... 
Development of Physically Realistic Numerical Model for Blinking Vortex System
(20160401)The blinking vortex system defines a method of mixing where two vortices turn on and off alternately. Research suggests that systems of this nature are sensitive to the initial conditions. This thesis aims to build off the ... 
Development of Software for Generating Synthetic Fetal Electrocardiograms
(20140401)Some of the most common and fatal birth defects are those related to the heart. In adults, abnormal heart conditions are often identified through the use of an electrocardiogram (ECG). However, due to the presence of other ... 
Discussion and Application of Geometrically and Statistically SelfSimilar Fractals
(19950401)This paper will present examples of fractal geometry with their respective techniques of analysis in order to illustrate the foundations for a quantitative study of the natural world. The first section studies dimension, ... 
Drug Pricing in the United States: A Comparison with Canada and Mexico
(20090401)The purpose of this study was to assess prescription drug pricing in the United States compared with that in Canada and Mexico. The study was designed to focus on ACE inhibitors in order to gather a limited, yet meaningful ... 
Effect of Displacement Histories on Lightly Confined Reinforced Concrete Bridge Columns
(20040401)This research involved the study of seismic behavior of older reinforced concrete bridge columns. The column reinforcement was modeled on columns used in the state of Washington prior to the mid 1970s. These columns were ... 
The Effect of Programming on Students' Understanding of Mathematics
(2020)Many schools are aware that technology and coding needs to be implemented more within their curriculum in order to have students become more literate in the heavily technology oriented society. Previously, researchers have ... 
Effects of Cord Angle on InPlane Bending of a Tire Ply
(20060401)As a rubber tire rolls down its path it is subjected to many different forces. To limit the deformation of the tire as it is subjected to these forces, cords of a more rigid material are aligned in the rubber to provide a ... 
Electronic Digital Computers With An Introduction To The Analog Computer And The Digital Differential Analyzer
(19670401)Computers either measure "how much" or count "how many". The former is known as an analog computer while the latter is called a digital computer. Of all the creatures on earth, only man has the ability to count. Ancient ... 
Evapotranspiration Estimates for the Closed Norman, Oklahoma Landfill
(19980401)An abandoned landfill in Norman, Oklahoma has been designated a National research site for the USGS's toxic substances hydrology program. One aspect of the project is to account for all moisture fluxes at the site. An ... 
Exploring the Natural Connection of Mathematical and Musical Concepts Using Mathematica
(20020401)Math and music share one very common property; they are both universal languages of the world. Their scientific relationship represents another powerful tie. The harmonious, unique, and enjoyable tunes we hear are surrounded ... 
Facility Locations In Montana
(20130401)Location models have developed into an extensive area of research because the effectiveness of facilities is dependent on their locations. An emergency health facility located in a region that is accessible to as many ... 
FFT, a Powerful Tool for Modern Science and Technology
(19940401)In 1965, a fivepage paper titled "An Algorithm for the Machine Calculation of Complex Fourier Series" by James W. Cooley and John W. Tukey was published in an American Mathematical Society journal—Mathematics of Computation.(1) ... 
Fibonacci Numbers: Lurking Happily Ever After
(19930401)The focus of this paper is a presentation of patterns that occur in the world in which we live and how they are explained in mathematics. The major pattern is that of the Fibonacci sequence, which was first discovered by ... 
FiniteElement Analysis Of TwoDimensional Frame Structures
(19990401)The majority of the problems involving analysis of deformable solids are not tractable by direct methods. Exact solutions are at best, difficult to obtain and frequently unavailable. Because of the difficulty of getting ... 
Football Betting Trends
(20110401)This thesis examines multiple aspects of sports betting within the NFL. The purpose of this thesis was to determine whether or not a statistical advantage existed between general betting trends and whether or not these ... 
Football in Flight: A study of the math and physics of the trajectory of a kicked football
(20130401)Three seconds left, down by two, one player will determine the outcome of the big game; one player will make or break his team’s Super Bowl dream. The kicking game associated with the sport of American football is a crucially ... 
From the Ground Up: OpenSource System Design Using HTML, PHP, and MySQL
(20030401)The need for information sharing is growing daily, along with the costs related to software licensing, training, and system maintenance. A niche has developed in which organizations on tight budgets  such as colleges  ...
