(Georgia Institute of Technology, 194808) 
5ListColoring Graphs on Surfaces
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 201205)Thomassen proved that there are only finitely many 6critical graphs embeddable on a fixed surface. He also showed that planar graphs are 5listcolorable. We develop new techniques to prove a general theorem for 5listcoloring ...

A bayesian solution for the law of categorical judgment with category boundary variability and examination of robustness to model violations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20131112)Previous solutions for the the Law of Categorical Judgment with category boundary variability have either constrained the standard deviations of the category boundaries in some way or have violated the assumptions of the ... 
A behavioral intervention for reducing postcompletion errors in a safetycritical system
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20140404)A widespread and persistent memory error that people commit on a daily basis is the postcompletion error (PCE; i.e., forgetting to complete the final step of a procedural task). PCEs occur in the railroad industry when a ... 
A molecular snapshot of charged nanoparticles in the cellular environment
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20140402)Nanoparticles are promising platforms for biomedical applications ranging from diagnostic tools to therapeutic delivery agents. During the course of these applications, nanoparticles are exposed to a complex mixture of ... 
A nonasymptotic study of lowrank estimation of smooth kernels on graphs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20140723)This dissertation investigates the problem of estimating a kernel over a large graph based on a sample of noisy observations of linear measurements of the kernel. We are interested in solving this estimation problem in the ... 
A numerical study of vorticityenhanced heat transfer
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20140626)In this work, we have numerically studied the effect of the vorticity on the enhancement of heat transfer in a channel flow. In the first part of the work, we focus on the investigation of a channel flow with a vortex ... 
A point contact spectroscopy study of topological superconductivity
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20150401)The study of topological superconductivity has been at the forefront of condensed matter physics for the past few years. Topological superconductors are predicted to have odd parity pairing and host so called Majorana ... 
A robophysics approach to bipedal walking in granular media
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20160519)Humanoid robots will need capabilities to traverse environments ranging from factory floors to disaster areas. However, most of today's devices fail when faced with more complex ground conditions such as loose sand. To ... 
A satellite and ash transport model aided approach to assess the radiative impacts of volcanic aerosol in the Arctic
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20140110)The Arctic radiation climate is influenced substantially by anthropogenic and natural aerosols. There have been numerous studies devoted to understanding the radiative impacts of anthropogenic aerosols (e.g. those responsible ... 
A study of stochastic differential equations and FokkerPlanck equations with applications
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20160415)FokkerPlanck equations, along with stochastic differential equations, play vital roles in physics, population modeling, game theory and optimization (finite or infinite dimensional). In this thesis, we study three topics, ...
