ReadBack Schemes for TwoDimensional Magnetic Recording
(20120401)This paper involves the pursuit of an optimal array of readback heads for improved track resolution in the presence of intertrack interference for highdensity magnetic media, moving towards 10 Terabits in:2 (10×10 in: ... 
Regression and Correlation Using R
(20060401)This thesis has three parts: an analysis of mountain lion data provided by Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, a study of the strength of correlations with small data sets, and preparation of a beginner’s user ... 
Riemannian Geometry
(19650401)Mathematics enjoys special esteem above all the other sciences for several reasons. Its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable. This priority would not be momentous if the laws of mathematics referred only to objects ... 
Security Analysis of Embedded File Systems
(20140401)Embedded devices provide people with an unparalleled level of integration between technology and everyday life. Given the proliferation of these devices, a key question is how secure are these devices that store highly ... 
Security Implications for Wireless Local Area Networks
(20030401)The first real wireless communication system was developed by a collection of scientists. Samuel Morse sent the first telegraph message in 1838. James Maxwell, a Scottish physicist, developed the first theoretical method ... 
Solution Of Parabolic Partial Differential Equations By Finite Difference Methods
(19730401)This paper is concerned with finding the solutions to a particular type of partial differential equations. It will be left up to the engineers and physicists to derive the actual equations which describe a physical situation. ... 
Spiralling Through Graph Theory
(19970401)The purpose of this thesis is twofold. The first objective is to explore graph theory—both its concepts and applications. The second objective is to use graph theory in a particular application: education. These two ... 
Statistical Retention Analysis of Enrollment Data at Carroll College
(20100401)Organizations around the world hire operations scientists and data analysts to ensure their resources are being used to their maximum potential. Colleges and universities are no exceptions. Admissions offices, in particular, ... 
Stepping Up the Secondary: Impacts of Increasingly Stringent Treated Wastewater Ammonia Discharge Limits on Small Montana Communities
(20100401)The question of waste disposal has always been an inherent problem of urbanized environments. The passage of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, specifically the 1972 Amendments known as the Clean Water Act (CWA), ... 
Stochastic Processes With Emphasis On Random Walks
(19760401)The problem I have chosen is a sequential service problem which is a type of stochastic process. The system has two servers A and B. A customer will enter only if A is free. Once A has served the customer, he will then be ... 
Striving for the Edge in Investing: A Statistical Analysis on the Current Asset to Market Capitalization Ratio
(20100401)A new ratio pertinent to the energy sector, as defined by Google Finance, the current asset to market capitalization ratio, was created and analyzed to determine its utility as an investment aid, using z statistics. ... 
Suggested Types of Manipulatives to Aid in Teaching Geometry to Various Age Groups of Students
(20150401)Geometry is a complex and visual discipline. Because geometry includes abstract concepts, geometry teachers often use manipulatives to make concepts visible and tangible. In this thesis, the question is proposed: which ... 
Sustainable Solutions in Developing Communities
(20120401)Sustainable solutions should be a goal for any longterm project, especially in the context of a developing community. Primary considerations in the evaluation of sustainability include the need, resources, and support. ... 
Terraforming Mars via Aerobraking an Asteroid
(20150401)Terraforming Mars is a tantalizing topic for the future of humanity. It has been estimated that an increase in temperature of about four degrees Kelvin would result in a runaway greenhouse effect on Mars, raising the ... 
The Complementary Nature Of Theology And Science: Fact Or Fiction?
(19940401)The traditional stereotype of historical conflict between scientific knowledge and religious belief has long ago been abandonedor so we are often assured. Unfortunately, those who assert this are wrong. The old stereotype ... 
The Development And Application Of Decision Theory Analysis
(19710401)Nearly everything a person does, every action taken, is the result of making a decision. With the exception of a few physiological actions, such as breathing, every action involves a decision, even though some are very ... 
The Importance Of Interpretation In Research Statistics: An Overview
(19710401)This paper was originally conceived of as a real research project, as a way of putting theoretical statistical knowledge to work in the area of real life. The author has access to a suitable population for study ... 
The Linear Fractional Transformation Of A Complex Variable: w=(az/b)/(cs/d)
(19640401)A complex number is represented in rectangular coordinates as x/iy, where x and y are real. It is also represented as r(cos e/i sin e) in polar coordinates, where r and e are real. r is called the absolute value, or modulus ... 
The Mathematics of Cryptography & Data Compression
(20120401)This honors thesis focuses on Cryptography, Data Compression, and the link between the two in modern applications. Beginning with the notion that a link could exist due to the similar structure of the general methods, ... 
The Minimum Letter Flip Problem for Haplotyping a Single Individual
(20060401)When haplotyping a single individual, DNA is replicated, broken into smaller fragments, and then sequenced by a machine. The minimum letter flip problem is one approach to correcting errors that arise in shotgun sequencing. ...
