Random Sampling

Description: The purpose of this study is to show the use of random sampling in solving certain mathematical problems. The origin of random numbers to be used in sampling is discussed and methods of sampling from known distributions are then given together with an indication that the sampling procedures are unbiased.

Exhaustibility and Related Set Properties

Description: The purpose of this paper is to develop certain fundamental properties of exhaustible sets and their complements and to examine various set properties which are generalizations, with respect to exhaustible neglect, or well-known set properties.

Creator: Cargal, Buchanan

Some Properties of the Perron Integral

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to restate the definition of the integral as given by O. Perron, to establish some of the fundamental properties of the Perron integral, and to prove the equivalence between the Perron and Lebesgue integrals in the bounded case.

Some Properties of Dini Derivatives

Description: The purpose of this paper is to derive certain of the fundamental properties of the Dini derivatives of an arbitrary real function. To this end it will be necessary to investigate the properties of the limits superior and inferior of real functions and to prove the Vitali Covering Theorem as well as a fundamental theorem on the metric density of arbitrary point sets.

Some Generalizations in the Theory of Summable Series

Description: It will be our purpose to study a generalized definition of sum of a series and the restrictions which must be placed upon it in order that it shall satisfy the generally accepted requirements of any generalized definition of sum of a series. We shall then proceed to investigate the possibilities of further generalizing this process.

The Moore-Smith Limit

Description: It is the purpose of this thesis to indicate in more detail how various limits defined in analysis, as well as other concepts not ordinarily defined as limits, may be obtained as special cases of the Moore-Smith limit.

Metric Spaces

Description: This thesis covers fundamental properties of metric spaces, as well as completeness, compactness, and separability of metric spaces.

Elements of Boolean Algebra Theory

Description: The primary purpose of this paper is to state a set of postulates for Boolean algebra and show the characteristic theorems derivable from them, and to unify in one paper the more important methods of representing Boolean algebra and show their equivalence.

Creator: Harvill, John Bowman

Some Fundamental Theorems on Infinite Products

Description: Since infinite products are seldom encountered in elementary mathematics, it is the purpose of this paper to familiarize the reader with their concept and properties. In the main, it is the compilation of material found in various references and revised to conform to standard notation.

Creator: Gonzalez, Genaro B.

Electronic Analog Computer Study of Effects of Motor Velocity and Driving Voltage Limits upon Servomechanism Performance

Description: The object of this thesis is (1) to demonstrate the value of an electronic analog computer for the solution of non-linear ordinary differential equations particularly when a large family of solutions is required; and (2) to obtain as a by-product results of practical applicability to servomechanism selection and analysis.

Creator: Haynes, Joe Preston

Mechanization of Aircraft Performance

Description: The purpose of this paper is to describe the mechanization of the basic equations of motion for the performance and maneuver characteristics of an airplane with some simplifications which render solutions more practicable. The results of a study made to program these equations for calculation by the IBM MODEL 650 digital computer are presented as well as the steps to be taken in using this method of calculation.

Creator: Cotten, Frances Patterson

Orthogonal Functions

Description: In this study the idea of orthogonality of two lines will be generalized to the idea of orthogonality of two functions. In particular, the orthogonality of two lines may be treated from the standpoint of the orthogonality of two vectors in two-dimensional space.
