Improving Vix Futures Forecasts Using Machine Learning Methods, 2019 Southern Methodist University

#### Improving Vix Futures Forecasts Using Machine Learning Methods, James Hosker, Slobodan Djurdjevic, Hieu Nguyen, Robert Slater

*SMU Data Science Review*

The problem of forecasting market volatility is a difficult task for most fund managers. Volatility forecasts are used for risk management, alpha (risk) trading, and the reduction of trading friction. Improving the forecasts of future market volatility assists fund managers in adding or reducing risk in their portfolios as well as in increasing hedges to protect their portfolios in anticipation of a market sell-off event. Our analysis compares three existing financial models that forecast future market volatility using the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index (VIX) to six machine/deep learning supervised regression methods. This analysis determines which models provide ...

Random Models Of Idempotent Linear Maltsev Conditions. I. Idemprimality, 2019 Iowa State University

#### Random Models Of Idempotent Linear Maltsev Conditions. I. Idemprimality, Clifford Bergman, Agnes Szendrei

*Mathematics Publications*

We extend a well-known theorem of Murski\v{\i} to the probability space of finite models of a system M of identities of a strong idempotent linear Maltsev condition. We characterize the models of M in a way that can be easily turned into an algorithm for producing random finite models of M, and we prove that under mild restrictions on M, a random finite model of M is almost surely idemprimal. This implies that even if such an M is distinguishable from another idempotent linear Maltsev condition by a finite model A of M, a random search for a ...

Resolution Of Conjectures Related To Lights Out! And Cartesian Products, 2019 University of Wyoming

#### Resolution Of Conjectures Related To Lights Out! And Cartesian Products, Bryan A. Curtis, Jonathan Earl, David Livingston, Bryan L. Shader

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

Lights Out!\ is a game played on a $5 \times 5$ grid of lights, or more generally on a graph. Pressing lights on the grid allows the player to turn off neighboring lights. The goal of the game is to start with a given initial configuration of lit lights and reach a state where all lights are out. Two conjectures posed in a recently published paper about Lights Out!\ on Cartesian products of graphs are resolved.

Schwarz Waveform Relaxation With Adaptive Pipelining, 2019 Hong Kong Baptist University

#### Schwarz Waveform Relaxation With Adaptive Pipelining, Felix Kwok, Benjamin W. Ong

*Department of Mathematical Sciences Publications*

Schwarz waveform relaxation (SWR) methods have been developed to solve a wide range of diffusion-dominated and reaction-dominated equations. The appeal of these methods stems primarily from their ability to use nonconforming space-time discretizations; SWR methods are consequently well-adapted for coupling models with highly varying spatial and time scales. The efficacy of SWR methods is questionable, however, since in each iteration, one propagates an error across the entire time interval. In this manuscript, we introduce an adaptive pipeline approach wherein one subdivides the computational domain into space-time blocks, and adaptively selects the waveform iterates which should be updated given a fixed ...

#### Upper Bounds For The Isolation Number Of A Matrix Over Semirings, Leroy B. Beasley, Seok-Zun Song

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications*

Let S be an antinegative semiring. The rank of an *m*×*n* matrix B over S is the minimal integer r such that B is a product of an *m*×*r* matrix and an *r*×*n* matrix. The isolation number of B is the maximal number of nonzero entries in the matrix such that no two entries are in the same column, in the same row, and in a submatrix of B of the form [*b _{i,j }b_{k,j }*

* b _{i,l }b_{k,l}*] with nonzero entries. We know that the isolation number of B is not ...

A Note On Linear Preservers Of Semipositive And Minimally Semipositive Matrices, 2019 Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru

#### A Note On Linear Preservers Of Semipositive And Minimally Semipositive Matrices, Projesh Nath Choudhury, Rajesh Kannan, K. C. Sivakumar

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

Semipositive matrices (matrices that map at least one nonnegative vector to a positive vector) and minimally semipositive matrices (semipositive matrices whose no column-deleted submatrix is semipositive) are well studied in matrix theory. In this short note, the structure of linear maps which preserve the set of all semipositive/minimally semipositive matrices is studied. An open problem is solved, and some ambiguities in the article [J. Dorsey, T. Gannon, N. Jacobson, C.R. Johnson and M. Turnansky. Linear preservers of semi-positive matrices. {\em Linear and Multilinear Algebra}, 64:1853--1862, 2016.] are clarified.

*Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra*

Through a matrix approach of the $2$-fold vector cross product in $\mathbb{R}^3$ and in $\mathbb{R}^7$, some vector cross product differential and difference equations are studied. Either the classical theory or convenient Drazin inverses, of elements belonging to the class of index $1$ matrices, are applied.

Gravitational Radiation From A Toroidal Source, 2019 University of Puget Sound

#### Gravitational Radiation From A Toroidal Source, Aidan Schumann

*Summer Research*

This research uses a linearized form of Einstein's General Relativity to find the quadrupole moment from an oscillating toroidal mass and charge current. With the quadrupole terms, we found the gravitational radiation from the energy distribution. We make the assumptions that we are in the low-energy and far field limits.

Developing Mathematics Teachers’ Attention To Quantitative Reasoning In Task Design: A Modeling Approach, 2019 Kennesaw State University

#### Developing Mathematics Teachers’ Attention To Quantitative Reasoning In Task Design: A Modeling Approach, David Glassmeyer

*Numeracy*

This study examines how a models-and-modeling perspective affected teachers' attention to quantitative reasoning in task design. A Model-Eliciting Activity (MEA) was implemented with 21 teachers over four weeks, challenging teachers to design a quantitative reasoning task for their students. Teachers’ initial quantitative reasoning tasks did not incorporate quantities or quantitative relationships, two essential components of quantitative reasoning. As teachers revised their tasks through the MEA, most teachers began attending to these components. This article details how a modeling approach to teacher education provided a method to describe and support teachers to incorporate quantitative reasoning in their classroom tasks, though attending ...
