### A Development of the Peano Postulates

**Date:**May 1963

**Creator:**Peek, Darwin Eugene

**Description:**The purpose of this paper is to develop the Peano postulates from a weaker axiom system than the system used by John L. Kelley in General Topology. The axiom of regularity which states "If X is a non-empty set, then there is a member Y of X such that the intersection of X and Y is empty." is not assumed in this thesis. The axiom of amalgamation which states "If X is a set, then the union of the elements of X is a set." is also not assumed. All other axioms used by Kelley relevant to the Peano postulates are assumed. The word class is never used in the thesis, though the variables can be interpreted as classes.

### A Development of the Real Number System by Means of Nests of Rational Intervals

**Date:**1949

**Creator:**Williams, Mack Lester

**Description:**The system of rational numbers can be extended to the real number system by several methods. In this paper, we shall extend the rational number system by means of rational nests of intervals, and develop the elementary properties of the real numbers obtained by this extension.

### Dimension spectrum and graph directed Markov systems.

**Access:**Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community.

**Date:**May 2006

**Creator:**Ghenciu, Eugen Andrei

**Description:**In this dissertation we study graph directed Markov systems (GDMS) and limit sets associated with these systems. Given a GDMS S, by the Hausdorff dimension spectrum of S we mean the set of all positive real numbers which are the Hausdorff dimension of the limit set generated by a subsystem of S. We say that S has full Hausdorff dimension spectrum (full HD spectrum), if the dimension spectrum is the interval [0, h], where h is the Hausdorff dimension of the limit set of S. We give necessary conditions for a finitely primitive conformal GDMS to have full HD spectrum. A GDMS is said to be regular if the Hausdorff dimension of its limit set is also the zero of the topological pressure function. We show that every number in the Hausdorff dimension spectrum is the Hausdorff dimension of a regular subsystem. In the particular case of a conformal iterated function system we show that the Hausdorff dimension spectrum is compact. We introduce several new systems: the nearest integer GDMS, the Gauss-like continued fraction system, and the Renyi-like continued fraction system. We prove that these systems have full HD spectrum. A special attention is given to the backward continued fraction ...

### Dimensions in Random Constructions.

**Date:**May 2002

**Creator:**Berlinkov, Artemi

**Description:**We consider random fractals generated by random recursive constructions, prove zero-one laws concerning their dimensions and find their packing and Minkowski dimensions. Also we investigate the packing measure in corresponding dimension. For a class of random distribution functions we prove that their packing and Hausdorff dimensions coincide.

### Direct Sums of Rings

**Date:**August 1966

**Creator:**Hughes, Dolin F.

**Description:**This paper consists of a study of the direct sum U of two rings S and T. Such a direct sum is defined as the set of all ordered pairs (s1, t1), where s1 is an arbitrary element in S and t1 is an arbitrary element in T.
