    • Trellis Decoding And Applications For Quantum Error Correction 

      Sabo, Eric (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-08)
      Compact, graphical representations of error-correcting codes called trellises are a crucial tool in classical coding theory, establishing both theoretical properties and performance metrics for practical use. The idea was ...
    • NON-SEPARATING PATHS IN GRAPHS 

      Qian, Yingjie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-01)
      When developing a theory for 3-connected graphs, Tutte showed that for any 3-connected graph G and any three vertices a, b, c of G, G-c has an a-b path P such that G-P is connected. We call paths non-separating if their ...

      This dissertation consists of two topics concerning algebraic and semi-algebraic invariants on quadrics. The ranks of the minimal graded free resolution of square-free quadratic monomial ideals can be investigated ...
    • Shortest closed curve to inspect a sphere 

      Wenk, James F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
      We show that in Euclidean 3-space 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 

      Yuan, Xiaofan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-30)
      Kühn, Osthus, and Treglown and, independently, Khan proved that if H is a 3-uniform hypergraph on n vertices, where n is a multiple of 3 and large, and the minimum vertex degree of H is greater than {(n-1) choose 2} - {2n/3 ...

    • Factorization theorems and canonical representations for generating functions of special sums 

      Schmidt, Maxie Dion (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-19)
      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 (non-appendix) section ...
    • On embeddings of 3-manifolds in symplectic 4-manifolds 

      Mukherjee, Anubhav (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-13)
      We proposed a conjecture that every 3-manifolds smoothly embedded in some closed symplectic 4-manifolds. This work shows that any closed oriented 3-manifold can be topologically embedded in some simply-connected closed ...
    • Learning Dynamics from Data Using Optimal Transport Techniques and Applications 

      Ma, Shaojun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07-08)
      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 ...
    • Erdos-Posa theorems for undirected group-labelled graphs 

      Yoo, Youngho (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06-14)
      Erdős and Pósa proved in 1965 that cycles satisfy an approximate packing-covering 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 Multi-Body Astrodynamics 

      Kumar, Bhanu (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06-01)
      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 

      Ide, Benjamin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-05-19)
      The humoral adaptive immune system in vertebrates includes a process called the germinal center reaction in which B-cells rapidly increase their binding affinity to an antigen that is part of a pathogen. A fraction of ...
    • Invariance principle of random matrix 

      Duan, Jun Tao (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-05-16)
