Basic Concepts In The Simplex Method Of Linear Programming
(19670401)Programming problems are concerned with the efficient use or allocation of limited resources to meet desired objectives. These problems are characterized by a large number of solutions that satisfy the basic conditions of ... 
Basic Concepts Of Finite Congruences
(19670401)Ever since the adveny of counting man has been toying with numbers. He soon learned that some numbers behaved differently than did others, and that different combinations of different numbers also produced different results. ... 
Burning Down the Cost: A Study to Optimize Wildfire Expenses
(20140401)The cost of wildfires has been climbing drastically. In 2012, the total estimated cost for Montana wildfire suppression was $113.5 million. The goal of this research was to see if it was mathematically possible to minimize ... 
Classifications of Electrical Resistance Distance in Simple Graphs
(20180401)In graph theory, there are multiple distance metrics which can describe the concept of “distance” between nodes on a simple graph and are of particular interest to researchers studying link prediction and network evolution. ... 
Confidence Intervals in a High School Statistics Class
(20160401)In order to be a functioning member of society, it is important that a citizen understands basic statistics. One key topic in particular is confidence intervals. There are confidence intervals in everyday life, no matter ... 
Creating Natural Landscapes With Fractal Geometry
(20030401)Video games are an integral pastime of current youths. Initially, popular video games were created in a twodimensional scene. As the field of computer technology has advanced, the ability to create realistic threedimensional ... 
Creating the Tools to Study Galaxy Evolution Through Examination of Properties of Dark Matter Halos
(20170513)We study dark matter galaxy halos found by Jared W. Coughlin while running the Amiga Halo Finder on the output of a modified GADGET 2 large scale simulation [5], [7], [6]. The neighborhood of the halos is defined at different ... 
Curves, Vectors, 1Forms, And Other Forms Expressed In Terms Of Pictorial, Abstract, And Components In Curved Space
(19750401)In this thesis, I will explain old and new views of curves, vectors, 1forms and tensors. These views will be expressed conceptually in terms of pictorial, abstract and component forms. I will use these techniques to express ... 
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 ...
