Trellis Decoding And Applications For Quantum Error Correction
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220808)Compact, graphical representations of errorcorrecting codes called trellises are a crucial tool in classical coding theory, establishing both theoretical properties and performance metrics for practical use. The idea was ... 
NONSEPARATING PATHS IN GRAPHS
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220801)When developing a theory for 3connected graphs, Tutte showed that for any 3connected graph G and any three vertices a, b, c of G, Gc has an ab path P such that GP is connected. We call paths nonseparating if their ... 
Application of The Circle Method in Five Number Theory Problems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220801)This thesis consists of three applications of the circle method in number theory problems. In the first chapter, we study a question of Graham. Are there infinitely many integers $n$ for which the central binomial coefficient ... 
Algebraic and semialgebraic invariants on quadrics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220730)This dissertation consists of two topics concerning algebraic and semialgebraic invariants on quadrics. The ranks of the minimal graded free resolution of squarefree quadratic monomial ideals can be investigated ... 
Shortest closed curve to inspect a sphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220730)We show that in Euclidean 3space any closed curve γ which lies outside the unit sphere and contains the sphere within its convex hull has length ≥ 4π. Equality holds only when γ is composed of 4 semicircles of length π, ... 
Matching problems in hypergraphs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220730)Kühn, Osthus, and Treglown and, independently, Khan proved that if H is a 3uniform hypergraph on n vertices, where n is a multiple of 3 and large, and the minimum vertex degree of H is greater than {(n1) choose 2}  {2n/3 ... 
Contact geometric theory of Anosov flows in dimension three and related topics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220720)This thesis consists of the author's work on the contact and symplectic geometric theory of Anosov flows in low dimensions, as well as the related topics from Riemannian geometry. This includes the study of the interplay ... 
Factorization theorems and canonical representations for generating functions of special sums
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220719)This manuscript explores many convolution (restricted summation) type sequences via certain types of matrix based factorizations that can be used to express their generating functions. The last primary (nonappendix) section ... 
On embeddings of 3manifolds in symplectic 4manifolds
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220713)We proposed a conjecture that every 3manifolds smoothly embedded in some closed symplectic 4manifolds. This work shows that any closed oriented 3manifold can be topologically embedded in some simplyconnected closed ... 
Learning Dynamics from Data Using Optimal Transport Techniques and Applications
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220708)Optimal Transport has been studied widely in recent years, the concept of Wasserstein distance brings a lot of applications in computational mathematics, machine learning, engineering, even finance areas. Meanwhile, people ... 
ErdosPosa theorems for undirected grouplabelled graphs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220614)Erdős and Pósa proved in 1965 that cycles satisfy an approximate packingcovering duality. Finding analogous approximate dualities for other families of graphs has since become a highly active area of research due in part ... 
New Numerical And Computational Methods Leveraging Dynamical Systems Theory For MultiBody Astrodynamics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220601)Many proposed interplanetary space missions, including Europa Lander and Dragonfly, involve trajectory design in environments where multiple large bodies exert gravitational influence on the spacecraft, such as the Jovian ... 
A Novel Delay Differential Equation Model of the Germinal Center Reaction and an Algorithm for Minimum Length Surveillance Paths
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220519)The humoral adaptive immune system in vertebrates includes a process called the germinal center reaction in which Bcells rapidly increase their binding affinity to an antigen that is part of a pathogen. A fraction of ... 
Invariance principle of random matrix
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220516)Random matrix has been found useful in many realworld applications. The celebrated JohnsonLindenstrauss lemma states that certain geometric structure of deterministic vectors is preserved when projecting high dimensional ...

CAPILLARY GRAVITY WATER WAVE LINEARIZED AT MONOTONE SHEAR FLOWS: EIGENVALUE AND INVISCID DAMPING
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220503)This work is concerned with the two dimensional capillary gravity water waves of finite depth $x_2 \in (h, 0)$ linearized at a uniformly monotonic shear flow $U(x_2)$. We focus on the eigenvalue distribution and linear ... 
Dual representations of polynomial modules with applications to partial differential equations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220502)In 1939, Wolfgang Gröbner proposed using differential operators to represent ideals in a polynomial ring. Using Macaulay inverse systems, he showed a onetoone correspondence between primary ideals whose variety is a ... 
Duality Between Deep Learning And Algorithm Design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220502)This thesis introduces 'Duality Between Deep Learning And Algorithm Design'. Deep learning is a datadriven method, whereas conventional algorithm design is a knowledgedriven method. Based on their connections and ... 
Heat kernel and geometry of metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature lower bounds
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220428)The thesis is a study of geometric properties of noncollapsed metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature lower bounds. We establish some characterizations of noncollapsed spaces and as a consequence, solve the De ... 
A Selflimiting Hawkes Process: Interpretation, Estimation, and Use in Modeling
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 20220428)Many real life processes that we would like to model have a selfexciting property, i.e. the occurrence of one event causes a temporary spike in the probability of other events occurring nearby in space and time. Examples ...
