    • Burch ideals and Burch rings 

      Dao, Hailong; Kobayashi, Toshinori; Takahashi, Ryo (Mathematical Sciences Publishers (MSP), 2020-09-18)
      We introduce the notion of Burch ideals and Burch rings. They are easy to define, and can be viewed as generalization of many well-known concepts, for example integrally closed ideals of finite colength and Cohen–Macaulay ...
    • Averaging Gaussian functionals 

      Nualart, David; Zheng, Guangqu (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2020-04-28)
      This paper consists of two parts. In the first part, we focus on the average of a functional over shifted Gaussian homogeneous noise and as the averaging domain covers the whole space, we establish a Breuer-Major type ...

      Dao, Hailong; Li, Jinjia; Miller, Claudia (Mathematical Sciences Publishers (MSP), 2011-02-24)
      It is well-known that for a large class of local rings of positive characteristic, including complete intersection rings, the Frobenius endomorphism can be used as a test for finite projective dimension. In this paper, we ...

      Pencil beam scanning proton radiotherapy (RT) offers flexible proton spot placement near treatment targets for delivering tumoricidal radiation dose to tumor targets while sparing organs-at-risk. Currently the spot placement ...
    • Unique Factorization Domains in Commutative Algebra 

      Huang, Yongjian (Department of Mathematics, University of Kansas, 2021-05-20)
      In this project, we learn about unique factorization domains in commutative algebra. Most importantly, we explore the relation between unique factorization domains and regular local rings, and prove the main theorem: If R ...

      Himonas, A. Alexandrou; Mantzavinos, Dionyssios; Yan, Fangchi (American Institute of Physics, 2019-08-27)
      A novel approach that utilizes Fokas’s unified transform is employed for studying a reaction-diffusion equation with power nonlinearity formulated either on the half-line or on a finite interval with data in Sobolev spaces. ...

      Cui, Yanhao (University of Kansas, 2019-12-31)
      Abstract In this dissertation, we study a general stochastic volatility model for the VIX options (Chicago Board Options Exchange) volatility index, which is a stochastic differential equation with 8 unknown parameters. ...
    • On the Generation of Stable Kerr Frequency Combs in the Lugiato--Lefever Model of Periodic Optical Waveguides 

      Hakkaev, Sevdzhan; Stanislavova, Milena; Stefanov, Atanas G. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2019-03-07)
    • The Korteweg-de Vries equation on an interval 

      Himonas, A. Alexandrou; Mantzavinos, Dionyssios; Yan, Fangchi (American Institute of Physics, 2019-05-08)
      The initial-boundary value problem (IBVP) for the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation on an interval is studied by extending a novel approach recently developed for the well-posedness of the KdV on the half-line, which is ...
    • Finitary isomorphisms of Poisson point processes 

      Soo, Terry; Wilkens, Amanda (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2019-10-22)
      As part of a general theory for the isomorphism problem for actions of amenable groups, Ornstein and Weiss (J. Anal. Math. 48 (1987) 1–141) proved that any two Poisson point processes are isomorphic as measure-preserving ...
    • A weighted cellular matrix-tree theorem, with applications to complete colorful and cubical complexes 

      Aalipour, Ghodratollah; Duval, Art M.; Kook, Woong; Lee, Kang-Ju; Martin, Jeremy L. (Elsevier, 2018-03-26)
      We present a version of the weighted cellular matrix-tree theorem that is suitable for calculating explicit generating functions for spanning trees of highly structured families of simplicial and cell complexes. We apply ...

      Braun, Benjamin; Corrales, Hugo; Corry, Scott; Puente, Luis David García; Glass, Darren; Kaplan, Nathan; Martin, Jeremy L.; Musiker, Gregg; Valencia, Carlos E. (Elsevier, 2018-07-27)
      Let G be a finite, connected graph. An arithmetical structure on G is a pair of positive integer vectors d, r such that (diag(d)-A)r = 0, where A is the adjacency matrix of G. We investigate the combinatorics of arithmetical ...
