Application of the wavelet transform for sparse matrix systems and PDEs.
(2009)We consider the application of the wavelet transform for solving sparse matrix systems and partial differential equations. The first part is devoted to the theory and algorithms of wavelets. The second part is concerned ... 
Applications of embedding theory in higher dimensional general relativity.
(20140422)The study of embeddings is applicable and signicant to higher dimensional theories of our universe, highenergy physics and classical general relativity. In this thesis we investigate local and global isometric ... 
Applications of Levy processes in finance.
(2009)The option pricing theory set forth by Black and Scholes assumes that the underlying asset can be modeled by Geometric Brownian motion, with the Brownian motion being the driving force of uncertainty. Recent empirical studies, ... 
Applications of Lie symmetries to gravitating fluids.
(2011)This thesis is concerned with the application of Lie's group theoretic method to the Einstein field equations in order to find new exact solutions. We analyse the nonlinear partial differential equation which arises ... 
Applications of symmetry analysis of partial differential and stochastic differential equations arising from mathematics of finance.
(2011)In the standard modeling of the pricing of options and derivatives as generally understood these days the underlying process is taken to be a Wiener Process or a Levy Process. The stochastic process is modeled as a stochastic ... 
Artificial neural networks for image recognition : a study of feature extraction methods and an implementation for handwritten character recognition.
(1996)The use of computers for digital image recognition has become quite widespread. Applications include face recognition, handwriting interpretation and fmgerprint analysis. A feature vector whose dimension is much lower ... 
Aspects of categorical data analysis.
(1998)The purpose of this study is to investigate and understand data which are grouped into categories. At the onset, the study presents a review of early research contributions and controversies surrounding categorical data ... 
Aspects of distance measures in graphs.
(2011)In this thesis we investigate bounds on distance measures, namely, Steiner diameter and radius, in terms of other graph parameters. The thesis consists of four chapters. In Chapter 1, we define the most significant terms ... 
Aspects of graph vulnerability.
(1994)This dissertation details the results of an investigation into, primarily, three aspects of graph vulnerability namely, lconnectivity, Steiner Distance hereditatiness and functional isolation. Following the introduction ... 
Assessment of variability in onfarm trials : a Uganda case.
(2002)Onfarm trials techniques have become an integral part of research aimed at improving agricultural production especially in subsistence farming. The poor performance of certain technologies on the farmers' fields known to ... 
Asymptotic analysis of singularly perturbed dynamical systems.
(2011)According to the needs, real systems can be modeled at various level of resolution. It can be detailed interactions at the individual level (or at microscopic level) or a sample of the system (or at mesoscopic level) and ... 
Bayesian analysis of cosmological models.
(2010)In this thesis, we utilise the framework of Bayesian statistics to discriminate between models of the cosmological mass function. We first review the cosmological model and the formation and distribution of galaxy clusters ... 
Bayesian hierarchical spatial and spatiotemporal modeling and mapping of tuberculosis in Kenya.
(20131220)Global spread of infectious disease threatens the wellbeing of human, domestic, and wildlife health. A proper understanding of global distribution of these diseases is an important part of disease management and policy ... 
Bayesian spatial models with application to HIV, TB and STI modeling in Kenya.
(20150206)This dissertation is concerned with developing and extending statistical models in the area of spatial modeling with particular interest towards application to HIV, TB and HSV2 data. Hierarchical spatial modeling is a ... 
Bimodal biometrics authentication on iris and signature.
(2010)Multimodal biometrics is one of the most promising avenues to address the performance problems in biometricsbased personal authentication systems. While unimodal biometric systems have bolstered personal authentication ... 

Bounds on distancebased topological indices in graphs.
(2012)This thesis details the results of investigations into bounds on some distancebased topological indices. The thesis consists of six chapters. In the first chapter we define the standard graph theory concepts, and ... 
Builtin tests for a realtime embedded system.
(1991)Beneath the facade of the applications code of a welldesigned realtime embedded system lies intrinsic firmware that facilitates a fast and effective means of detecting and diagnosing inevitable hardware failures. These ... 
Categorical systems biology : an appreciation of categorical arguments in cellular modelling.
(20140423)With big science projects like the human genome project, [2], and preliminary attempts to seriously study brain activity, e.g. [9], mathematical biology has come of age, employing formalisms and tools from most branches ... 
Centre manifold theory with an application in population modelling.
(2009)There are basically two types of variables in population modelling, global and local variables. The former describes the behavior of the entire population while the latter describes the behavior of individuals within this ...
