Interval exchange transformations: Applications of Keane's construction and disjointness
This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part uses a family of Interval Exchange Transformations constructed by Michael Keane to show that IETs can have some particular behavior including: (1) IETs can be topologically ...
The (n)-Solvable Filtration of the Link Concordance Group and Milnor's mu-Invariaants
We establish several new results about the ( n )-solvable filtration, [Special characters omitted.] , of the string link concordance group [Special characters omitted.] . We first establish a relationship between ( n ...
Imaging complex structures with semi-recursive Kirchoff migration
Attempting to image the subsurface in areas of complex geology and rapid lateral velocity variation is a challenging problem. In particular, using prestack Kirchhoff migration in conjunction with first arrival travel times ...
Edge length minimizing polyhedra
This thesis investigates two different edge length minimization problems on convex polyhedra: first, minimizing edge length for fixed volume (Melzak's Problem), and second, minimizing edge length for fixed surface area ...
