Fischer-Clifford matrices of the generalized symmetric group and some associated groups.
With the classification of finite simple groups having been completed in 1981, recent work in group theory has involved the study of the structures of simple groups. The character tables of maximal subgroups of simple ...
Coagulation-fragmentation dynamics in size and position structured population models.
One of the most interesting features of fragmentation models is a possibility to breach
The pricing theory of Asian options.
An Asian option is an example of exotic options. Its payoff depends on the average of the underlying asset prices. The average may be over the entire time period between initiation and expiration or may be over some period ...
Character tables of the general linear group and some of its subgroups
The aim of this dissertation is to describe the conjugacy classes and some of the ordinary irreducible characters of the nite general linear group GL(n, q); together with character tables of some of its subgroups. We study ...
Remediation of first-year mathematics students' algebra difficulties.
The pass rate of first-year university mathematics students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (Pietermaritzburg Campus) has been low for many years. One cause may be weak algebra skills. At the time of this study, revision ...
The design and implementation of a classroom-based support programme in trignometry for use by underqualified educators.
The main purpose of the study was to show the necessity of a classroom-based educator in-service support programme. Educators have unique problems being derived from the uniqueness of their school situations. Thus, the ...
Knowledge-directed intelligent information retrieval for research funding.
Researchers have always found difficulty in attaining funding from the National Research Foundation (NRF) for new research interests. The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds the promise of improving the matching ...
Optimal designs for linear mixed models.
The research of this thesis deals with the derivation of optimum designs for linear mixed models. The problem of constructing optimal designs for linear mixed models is very broad. Thus the thesis is mainly focused on the ...
Realistic charged stellar models
In this thesis we seek exact solutions to the isotropic Einstien-Maxwell system that model the interior of relativistic stars. The field equations are transformed to a simpler form using the transformation of Durgapal and ...
The application of artifacts in the teaching and learning of grade 9 geometry.
The main focus of the study was to explore how the experiences that the learners went through in the Technology class during the construction and design of artifacts, could be used to inform the teaching of Geometry in the ...
