Techniques and countermeasures of TCP/IP OS fingerprinting on Linux Systems
(2007)Port scanning is the first activity an attacker pursues when attempting to compromise a target system on a network. The aim is to gather information that will result in identifying one or more vulnerabilities in that system. ... 
The theory of option valuation.
(1992)Although options have been traded for many centuries, it has remained a relatively thinly traded financial instrument. Paradoxically, the theory of option pricing has been studied extensively. This is due to the fact ... 
Thermal evolution of radiation spheres undergoing dissipative gravitational collapse.
(20150904)In this study we investigate the physics of a relativistic radiating star undergoing dissipative collapse in the form of a radial heat flux. Our treatment clearly demonstrates how the presence of shear affects the collapse ... 
Time series modelling with application to South African inflation data
(2009)The research is based on financial time series modelling with special application 
Transport on network structures.
(20140512)This thesis is dedicated to the study of flows on a network. In the first part of the work, we describe notation and give the necessary results from graph theory and operator theory that will be used in the rest of ... 
Use of statistical modelling and analyses of malaria rapid diagnostic test outcome in Ethiopia.
(20131212)The transmission of malaria is among the leading public health problems in Ethiopia. From the total area of Ethiopia, more than 75% is malarious. Identifying the infectiousness of malaria by socioeconomic, demographic ... 
Using mobile agents to solve the distributed buying problem.
(2002)This study deals with the Distributed Buying Problem, that is, the problem faced by geographically distributed businesses when it comes to optimising buyer time and global businesses resources. It adopts a software ... 
Vector graphics to improve BLAST graphic representations
(2007)BLAST reports can be complicated. Viewing them graphically helps to understand them better, especially when the reports are long. At present "Web BLAST" and the standalone "wwwBLAST" versions, distributed by the NCBI, ... 
Wadley's problem with overdispersion.
(2009)Wadley’s problem frequently emerges in dosagemortality data and is one in which the number of surviving organisms is observed but the number initially treated is unknown. Data in this setting are also often overdispersed, ... 
Weak gravitational lensing in the cosmic microwave background : reconstructing the lensing convergence.
(20150105)Many of the most significant constraints on the standard model of Cosmology describing the origins, contents and evolution of the Universe arise from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). As we enter an era of precision ...
