#### An extremely small and efficient identification scheme

(2000)

We present a new identification scheme which is based on Legendre symbols modulo a certain hidden prime and which is naturally suited for low power, low memory applications.

#### Applications of fourier analysis to intersection bodies

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)

of the Busemann-Petty problem. We are interested in comparing classes of [kappa]-intersection bodies. In the first chapter we present the result that was published in J. Schlieper, A note on [kappa]-intersection bodies, Proceedings American.

**Mathematical**Society...#### Bounds on the tail probability of u-statistics and quadratic forms

(2011)

The authors announce a general tail estimate, called a decoupling inequality, for a symmetrized sum of non-linear k-correlations of n > k independent random variables.

#### A Longitudinal study of modeling-based college algebra and its effect on student achievement

(2020)

of creating a better course for terminal students and yet still preparing nonterminal students for the next

**mathematics**course. In this quantitative study, the difference between the two College Algebra courses in terms of average final grade, the D...#### Professional identity and curricular construction : a study of teacher interaction with **mathematics** curricula of two types

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)

of student investigation of

**mathematics**in small groups. In this dual role, teachers are influenced by the norms and expectations in their textbooks. The results from this study provide insight into how these teachers identify as participants within...#### Topics in spectral theory of differential operators

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

This dissertation is devoted to two eigenvalue counting problems: Determining the asymptotic behavior of large eigenvalues of self-adjoint extensions of partial differential operators, and computing the number of negative ...

#### On hydrodynamic equations and their relation to kinetic theory and statistical mechanics

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] We establish conditions on the Hamiltonian evolution of interacting molecules that imply hydrodynamic equations at the limit of infinitely many molecules ...

#### Stability and instability results for the 2D [alpha]-Euler equations

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

We study stability and instability of time independent solutions of the two dimensional a-Euler equations and Euler equations; the a-Euler equations are obtained by replacing the nonlinear term (u [times] [del.])u in the ...

#### Outer products and frame coefficients

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)

In this dissertation, we will examine two distinct areas of frame theory. The first will be the area of outer products. In particular, we will examine the spanning and independence properties of the collection [see abstract ...

#### The Dirichlet problem for elliptic and degenerate elliptic equations, and related results

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

In this thesis, we first prove the solvability of Dirichlet problem with Lp data on the boundary for degenerate elliptic equations. Second, We obtain Lp bounds semi-groups and their gradients, and then we get Lp bounds for ...

#### Some results in convex geometry

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)

This thesis is divided into four parts. The first part is about proving that the unit ball of the Lorentz space is not an intersection body for dimension greater than or equal to 5 and q > 2. We go on to explain the ...

#### From the textbook to the enacted curriculum: Textbook use in the middle school **mathematics** classroom

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2003)

The dissertation study reported here describes how teachers use district-adopted

**mathematics**curriculum materials and other curricular resources. Analysis of survey data, textbook diaries, and classroom observations was used to describe the use...####
**Mathematics** textbooks and state curriculum standards : an analysis of the alignment between the written and intended curricula

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)

This study documented the alignment between state curriculum standards and the treatment of fraction concepts and computation in popular elementary and middle grades

**mathematics**textbooks. Grade-level Learning Expectations (GLEs) from the five most...#### The investigation of the self-efficacy of special education teachers who teach **mathematics** to English language learners with disabilities

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2020)

Of the English Language Learners (ELLs) in USA K-12 schools, 665,000 are identified as having a disability. In

**mathematics**, ELLs with disabilities have significantly lower outcomes than English dominant, and non-disabled peers. Numerous studies over...#### Two paths to advanced placement calculus : an examination of secondary students' **mathematical** understanding emerging from integrated and single-subject curricula

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)

This study examined high school students'

**mathematical**understanding of calculus readiness concepts after studying four years of college preparatory (integrated or single-subject)**mathematics**. Data were collected from 505 students, 201 experienced...#### The **mathematics** of urban planning

(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1968)

"The question: Can computer techniques be applied to urban planning -- zoning, traffic, water and sewage disposal needs -- as a guide to orderly development?"--Page 30

#### An experimental study of the game of Nim

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)

method of identifying the winner is presented. Since Nim is a game with a complete

**mathematical**solution, a strategy for optimum play is also presented. The second part of the paper presents the findings from an experimental study asking questions like...#### Dynamic Geometry: GeoGebra

(2008)

This presentation discusses the benefits of using GeoGebra, a freely available “dynamic

**mathematics**software” for learning and teaching in schools. It enables teachers to create accurate diagrams and illustrations, create interactive demonstrations...#### A **mathematical** simulation of Asian options on the Tokyo Grain Exchange

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)

benefit this market highly. Through

**mathematically**simulation two Asian (averaging) rate options are compared through measures of dispersion to the Black-Scholes option and the futures market. The research proves that averaging rate options consistently...#### The economic consequences of water utility disruptions

(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)

This research produces an economic impact analysis of short duration water utility disruptions to evaluate the consequences of alternative restoration decisions. The study constructs a continuous dynamic disequilibrium ...
