Agedependent Branching Processes and Applications to the LuriaDelbrck Experiment
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2015)Microbial populations adapt to their environment by acquiring advantageous mutations, but in the early twentieth century, questions about how these organisms acquire mutations arose. The experiment of Salvador Luria and ... 
Expectation of pnorm of random matrices with heavy tails
([University of MissouriColumbia], 2014)The pnorm (p > 2) of a random matrix whose entries are gaussian, subgaussian and log concave have been studied previously. We conjecture the following generalization of the above results for heavy tailed random matrices: ... 
Incorporation of directionally dependent diffusion with polymer composite flow theory
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2006)The extensive industrial use of shortfiber reinforced polymer composites demands an accurate understanding of fiber orientation kinematics. There is a growing concern in recent literature with the popular Folgar and Tucker ...
