T-Functions

Description: The main purpose of this paper is to make a detailed study of a certain class T of complex functions. The functions of the class T have a special mapping property and are meromorphic in every region. As an application of this study, certain elementary functions are defined and studied in terms of a special T-function.

Properties of Order Relations and Certain Partly Ordered Systems

Description: The purpose of this paper is to present a study of partly ordered sets. It includes a rigorous development of relations based on the notion of a relation as a set, lattices, and theorems concerning the lattice of subgroups of a group.

Which Came First : The Measure or the Integral?

Description: This thesis provides a development of integration from two different points of view. In Chapter I, a measure and a measurable function are defined. A theory of integration is then developed in Chapter II based on the measure. In Chapter III, the integral is introduced directly without first going through the process of defining a measure, and a measure is developed from the integral. The concluding chapter shows the equivalence of the two integrals under rather general conditions.

A Comparison of Velocities Computed by Two-Dimensional Potential Theory and Velocities Measured in the Vicinity of an Airfoil

Description: In treating the motion of a fluid mathematically, it is convenient to make some simplifying assumptions. The assumptions which are made will be justifiable if they save long and laborious computations in practical problems, and if the predicted results agree closely enough with experimental results for practical use. In dealing with the flow of air about an airfoil, at subsonic speeds, the fluid will be considered as a homogeneous, incompressible, inviscid fluid.

Some Fundamental Properties of Categories

Description: This paper establishes a basis for abelian categories, then gives the statement and proof of two equivalent definitions of an abelian category, the development of the basic theory of such categories, and the proof of some theorems involving this basic theory.

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.

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).

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.

The Runge-Kutta Method

Description: This paper investigates the Runge-Kutta method of numerically integrating ordinary differential equations. An existence theorem is given insuring a solution to the differential equation, then the theorem is modified to yield an analytic solution. The derivation of the method itself is followed by an analysis of the inherent error.

Two Axiomatic Definitions of the Natural Numbers

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to present an axiomatic foundation for the development of the natural numbers from two points of view. It makes no claim at originality other than at the point of organization and presentation of previously developed works.

Introduction to the Theory of Games

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to provide a beginning graduate student in mathematics with the general theory underlying competition between rational, intelligent opponents. This competition can be described as a game of opposing strategies; hence, the name game theory.

Some Theorems from Plane Lobachevskian Geometry

Description: This paper will investigate the geometry that results when Euclid's fifth postulate is replaced by the Lobachevskian assumption. The investigations will be limited to the plane.

Some Properties of the Fibonacci Numbers

Description: This thesis is presented as an introduction to the Fibonacci sequence of integers. It is hoped that this thesis will create in the reader more interest in this type of sequence and especially the Fibonacci sequence. It seems that this particular area of mathematics is often ignored in the classroom or touched upon far too briefly to stimulate curiosity and develop further interest in this field.

A Generalized Study of the Conjugate and Inner-Product Functions

Description: The usual practice in any discussion of an inner-product space is to restrict the field over which the inner-product space is defined to the field of complex numbers. In defining the inner-product function, (x,y), a second function is needed; namely the conjugate function (x,y)* so that (x,y) ± (y,x)*. We will attempt to generalize this concept by investigating the existence of a conjugate function defined on fields other than the field of complex numbers and relate this function to an inner-product function defined on a linear space L over these fields.
