Diffusion And Consensus On Weakly Connected Directed Graphs, J. J. P. Veerman, Ewan Kummel 2019 Portland State University

Diffusion And Consensus On Weakly Connected Directed Graphs, J. J. P. Veerman, Ewan Kummel

Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications and Presentations

Let G be a weakly connected directed graph with asymmetric graph Laplacian L. Consensus and diffusion are dual dynamical processes defined on G by x˙=−Lx for consensus and p˙=−pL for diffusion. We consider both these processes as well their discrete time analogues. We define a basis of row vectors {γ¯i}ki=1 of the left null-space of L and a basis of column vectors {γi}ki=1 of the right null-space of L in terms of the partition of G into strongly connected components. This allows for complete characterization of the asymptotic behavior of both diffusion and ...


Torsors Over Simplicial Schemes, Alexander S. Rolle 2019 The University of Western Ontario

Torsors Over Simplicial Schemes, Alexander S. Rolle

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Let X be a simplicial object in a small Grothendieck site C, and let G be a sheaf of groups on C. We define a notion of G-torsor over X, generalizing a definition of Gillet, and prove that there is a bijection between the set of isomorphism classes of G-torsors over X, and the set of maps in the homotopy category of simplicial presheaves on C, with respect to the local weak equivalences, from X to BG. We prove basic results about the resulting non-abelian cohomology invariant, including an exact sequence associated to a central extension of sheaves of groups ...


Classification Of Minimal Separating Sets In Low Genus Surfaces, J. J. P. Veerman, William Maxwell, Victor Rielly, Austin K. Williams 2019 Portland State University

Classification Of Minimal Separating Sets In Low Genus Surfaces, J. J. P. Veerman, William Maxwell, Victor Rielly, Austin K. Williams

J. J. P. Veerman

Consider a surface S and let MS. If S \ M is not connected, then we say M separates S, and we refer to M as a separating set of S. If M separates S, and no proper subset of M separates S, then we say M is a minimal separating set of S. In this paper we use computational methods of combinatorial topology to classify the minimal separating sets of the orientable surfaces of genus g = 2 and g = 3. The classification for genus 0 and 1 was done in earlier work, using methods of algebraic topology.


The T3,T4-Conjecture For Links, Katie Tucker 2019 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The T3,T4-Conjecture For Links, Katie Tucker

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics

An oriented n-component link is a smooth embedding of n oriented copies of S1 into S3. A diagram of an oriented link is a projection of a link onto R2 such that there are no triple intersections, with notation at double intersections to indicate under and over strands and arrows on strands to indicate orientation. A local move on an oriented link is a regional change of a diagram where one tangle is replaced with another in a way that preserves orientation. We investigate the local moves t3 and t4, which are conjectured to ...

Properties Of Functionally Alexandroff Topologies And Their Lattice, Jacob Scott Menix 2019 Western Kentucky University

Properties Of Functionally Alexandroff Topologies And Their Lattice, Jacob Scott Menix

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

This thesis explores functionally Alexandroff topologies and the order theory asso- ciated when considering the collection of such topologies on some set X. We present several theorems about the properties of these topologies as well as their partially ordered set.

The first chapter introduces functionally Alexandroff topologies and motivates why this work is of interest to topologists. This chapter explains the historical context of this relatively new type of topology and how this work relates to previous work in topology. Chapter 2 presents several theorems describing properties of functionally Alexandroff topologies ad presents a characterization for the functionally Alexandroff topologies ...


Localization Theory In An Infinity Topos, Marco Vergura 2019 The University of Western Ontario

Localization Theory In An Infinity Topos, Marco Vergura

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

We develop the theory of reflective subfibrations on an ∞-topos E. A reflective subfibration L on E is a pullback-compatible assignment of a reflective subcategory D_X ⊆ E/X with associated localization functor L_X, for every X in E. Reflective subfibrations abound in homotopy theory, albeit often disguised, e.g., as stable factorization systems. The added properties of a reflective subfibration L on E compared to a mere reflective subcategory of E are crucial for most of our results. For example, we can prove that L-local maps (i.e., those maps p in D_X for some X in E) admit a ...


Dehn Functions Of Bestvina-Brady Groups, Yu-Chan Chang 2019 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Dehn Functions Of Bestvina-Brady Groups, Yu-Chan Chang

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

In this dissertation, we prove that if the flag complex on a finite simplicial graph is a 2-dimensional triangulated disk, then the Dehn function of the associated Bestvina--Brady group depends on the maximal dimension of the simplices in the interior of the flag complex. We also give some examples where the flag complex on a finite simplicial graph is not 2-dimensional, and we establish a lower bound for the Dehn function of the associated Bestvina--Brady group.

The White Rabbit 12-Puzzle, Chris Morgan, Jeremiah Farrell

Jeremiah Farrell

Martin Gardner's fondness for the characters and themes of Lewis Carroll's "Alice" is well-known and to honor Gardner we offer two word puzzles to be played on the 12-node diagram of the WHITE RABBIT.


Kate Jones – A Tribute, Karen Farrell, Jeremiah Farrell 2019 Butler University

Kate Jones – A Tribute, Karen Farrell, Jeremiah Farrell

Jeremiah Farrell

Kate is also an accomplished recreational mathematician and poet. To try to match in a small way her creative ability, we offer three puzzle-games in her honor: O'BEIRNE's TRI-HEX, PAPPUS and "KATe JONES". These three are specific examples of (9,3) symmetric configurations. More generally an (n,r) configuration is a collection of n "points"and n "lines" subject to the following requirements:

Rl: Any two points belong to at most one line.

R2: Each line has r points, and each point belongs to r lines.
