Approximate isometries and distortion energy functionals
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)A fundamental problem in Riemannian Geometry and related areas is to determine whether two diffeomorphic compact Riemannian manifolds (M, [subscript g][subscript M]) and (N, [subscript g][subscript N]) are isometric; that ... 
Asymptotic unconditionality in Banach spaces
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)We show that a separable real Banach space embeds almost isometrically in a space [Upsilon] with a shrinking 1unconditional basis if and only if lim [subscript n] [subscript arrow] [subscript infinity] [norms] [chi] [group ... 
An experimental study of the game of Nim
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)This study is an analysis of the game of Nim. The paper is divided into two parts. The first part is a theoretical examination of the game in which the game is solved and a method of identifying the winner is presented. ... 
Oscillators: resonances and excitations
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)This thesis is a compilation of work done in the field of oscillators. One topic is an investigation into impact oscillators and their properties. The second topic is concerned with excitation of oscillators. The thesis ... 
Uniqueness theorems for nonsymmetric convex bodies
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)The first uniqueness result involves fractional derivatives of parallel section functions. It is proven that if [negative]1 [lesser than] q [lesser than] n [negative]1 is not an integer, then the ...
