Recent Submissions

  • Interaction energies, lattices, and designs 

    Park, Josiah (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-21)
    This thesis has four chapters. The first three concern the location of mass on spheres or projective space, to minimize energies. For the Columb potential on the unit sphere, this is a classical problem, related to arranging ...
  • Rayleigh-Taylor instability with heat transfer 

    Hu, Qianli (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-13)
    In this thesis, the Rayleigh-Taylor instability effect with heat transfer in the setting of the Navier-Stokes equations, given three-dimensional and incompressible fluids, is investigated. Under suitable initial and boundary ...
  • Legendrian large cables and non-uniformly thick knots 

    McCullough, Andrew
    We define the notion of a knot type having Legendrian large cables and show that having this property implies that the knot type is not uniformly thick. Moreover, there are solid tori in this knot type that do not thicken ...
  • Small torsion generating sets for mapping class groups 

    Lanier, Justin Dale (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-04-27)
    A surface of genus g has many symmetries. These form the surface’s mapping class group Mod(S_g), which is finitely generated. The most commonly used generating sets for Mod(S_g) are comprised of infinite order elements ...
  • Finding and certifying numerical roots of systems of equations 

    Lee, Kisun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-01)
    Numerical algebraic geometry studies methods to approach problems in algebraic geometry numerically. Especially, finding roots of systems of equations using theory in algebraic geometry involves symbolic algorithm which ...
  • Numerical estimates for arm exponents and the acceptance profile in two-dimensional invasion percolation 

    Li, Jiaheng (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-05)
    The main object of this thesis is to numerically estimate some conjectured arm exponents when there exist a number of open paths and closed dual paths that extend to the boundary of different sizes of boxes centering at ...
  • The Maxwell-Pauli equations 

    Kieffer, Thomas Forrest (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-03-19)
    We study the quantum mechanical many-body problem of N ≥ 1 non-relativistic electrons with spin interacting with their self-generated classical electromagnetic field and K ≥ 0 static nuclei. We model the dynamics of the ...
  • Randomness as a tool for modeling and uncovering structure 

    Petti, Samantha N. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-03-12)
    This thesis contains four main research directions, united by the themes of using randomness to (i) construct structure and (ii) uncover structure. Randomness has long been used for these tasks. Random models are defined ...
  • Coloring graphs with no k5-subdivision: disjoint paths in graphs 

    Xie, Qiqin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-03-27)
    The Four Color Theorem states that every planar graph is 4-colorable. Hajos conjectured that for any positive integer k, every graph containing no K_{k+1}-subdivision is k-colorable. However, Catlin disproved Hajos conjecture ...
  • Detecting gerrymandering with mathematical rigor 

    Pegden, Wesley (2020-02-06)
    In recent years political parties have more and more expertly crafted political districtings to favor one side or another, while at the same time, entirely new techniques to detect and measure these efforts are being ...
  • The proxy point method for rank-structured matrices 

    Xing, Xin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-11-06)
    Rank-structured matrix representations, e.g., $\mathcal{H}^2$ and HSS, are commonly used to reduce computation and storage cost for dense matrices defined by interactions between many bodies. The main bottleneck for their ...
  • Quantum torus methods for Kauffman bracket skein modules 

    Paprocki, Jonathan Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-08-22)
    We investigate aspects of Kauffman bracket skein algebras of surfaces and modules of 3-manifolds using quantum torus methods. These methods come in two flavors: embedding the skein algebra into a quantum torus related to ...
  • 6-connected graphs are two-three linked 

    Xie, Shijie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-11-11)
    Let $G$ be a graph and $a_0, a_1, a_2, b_1,$ and $b_2$ be distinct vertices of $G$. Motivated by their work on Four Color Theorem, Hadwiger's conjecture for $K_6$, and J\o rgensen's conjecture, Robertson and Seymour asked ...
  • Topics on the length of the longest common subsequences, with blocks, in binary random words 

    Zhang, Yuze (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-08-27)
    The study of LIn, the length of the longest increasing subsequences, and of LCIn, the length of the longest common and increasing subsequences in random words is classical in computer science and bioinformatics, and has ...
  • Concentration and Convexity - Part 3 

    Paouris, Grigoris (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-12-13)
    The Concentration of measure phenomenon is a fundamental tool of high dimensional probability and of Asymptotic Geometric Analysis. Independence or Isoperimetry are two typical reasons for the appearance of this phenomenon. ...

    Werner, Elisabeth (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-12-12)
    Two important closely related notions in affine convex geometry are the floating body and the affine surface area of a convex body. The floating body of a convex body is obtained by cutting off caps of volume less or equal ...
