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 ... 
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 ... 
Using epidemiological mathematical models to understand the transmission dynamics of bovine tuberculosis in buffalo and cattle populations.
(2015)In South Africa, buffalo are the maintenance hosts of Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis), a pathogen that causes bovine tuberculosis in wildlife and domesticated animals. To understand the transmission dynamics of M. bovis, ... 
Using spectral methods on HIV infection with TAT and SSU72 activation.
(2016)HIV dynamics within the host are complex especially when a reservoir of latently infected CD4+ T cells are present. The failure of the immune system and antiviral therapy to suppress the virus has been suggested to be ... 
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 ...
