Additive Functions

Description: The purpose of this paper is the analysis of functions of real numbers which have a special additive property, namely, f(x+y) = f(x)+f(y).

Algebraic Integers

Description: The primary purpose of this thesis is to give a substantial generalization of the set of integers Z, where particular emphasis is given to number theoretic questions such as that of unique factorization. The origin of the thesis came from a study of a special case of generalized integers called the Gaussian Integers, namely the set of all complex numbers in the form n + mi, for m,n in Z. The main generalization involves what are called algebraic integers.

An Approximate Solution to the Dirichlet Problem

Description: In the category of mathematics called partial differential equations there is a particular type of problem called the Dirichlet problem. Proof is given in many partial differential equation books that every Dirichlet problem has one and only one solution. The explicit solution is very often not easily determined, so that a method for approximating the solution at certain points becomes desirable. The purpose of this paper is to present and investigate one such method.

Automorphism Groups

Description: This paper will be concerned mainly with automorphisms of groups. The concept of a group endomorphism will be used at various points in this paper.

Basic Fourier Transforms

Description: The purpose of this paper is to develop some of the more basic Fourier transforms which are the outgrowth of the Fourier theorem. Although often approached from the stand-point of the series, this paper will approach the theorem from the standpoint of the integral.

Compact Topological Spaces

Description: The purpose of this paper is to investigate some properties of compact topological spaces and to relate these concepts to the separation properties.

Creator: Conway, Thomas M.

Compactness and Equivalent Notions

Description: One of the classic theorems concerning the real numbers states that every open cover of a closed and bounded subset of the real line contains a finite subcover. Compactness is an abstraction of that notion, and there are several ideas concerning it which are equivalent and many which are similar. The purpose of this paper is to synthesize the more important of these ideas. This synthesis is accomplished by demonstrating either situations in which two ordinarily different conditions are equivalent or combinations of two or more properties which will guarantee a third.

Concerning linear spaces

Description: The basis for this thesis is H. S. Wall's book, Creative Mathematics, with particular emphasis on the chapter in that book entitled "More About Linear Spaces."

Continuous Solutions of Laplace's Equation in Two Variables

Description: In mathematical physics, Laplace's equation plays an especially significant role. It is fundamental to the solution of problems in electrostatics, thermodynamics, potential theory and other branches of mathematical physics. It is for this reason that this investigation concerns the development of some general properties of continuous solutions of this equation.

A Development of the Peano Postulates

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.

Differentiable Functions

Description: The primary purpose of this thesis is to carefully develop and prove some of the fundamental, classical theorems of the differential calculus for functions of two real variables.
