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 ... 
A free boundary gas dynamic model as a twobody field theory problem
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)Motivated by the twobody problem in the classical field theories of electrodynamics and gravitation, in which finite propagation speeds lead to radiation reaction and runaway solutions, we develop a free boundary problem ... 
Mathematical problems from cryobiology
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2009)Cryobiology is the study of life and death at low temperatures and provides a fascinating setting for applied mathematics. The interdisciplinary nature of cryobiology mirrors the diversity of ... 
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 ...
