Analysis and numerical solutions of fragmentation equation with transport.
(20140512)Fragmentation equations occur naturally in many real world problems, see [ZM85, ZM86, HEL91, CEH91, HGEL96, SLLM00, Ban02, BL03, Ban04, BA06] and references therein. Mathematical study of these equations is mostly ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
Conformal motions in Bianchi I spacetime.
(1992)In this thesis we study the physical properties of the manifold in general relativity that admits a conformal motion. The results obtained are general as the metric tensor field is not specified. We obtain the Lie derivative ... 
Conformal symmetries : solutions in two classes of cosmological models.
(1991)In this thesis we study the conformal symmetries in two locally rotationally symmetric spacetimes and the homothetic symmetries of a Bianchi I spacetime. The conformal Killing equation in a class AIa spacetime (MacCallum ... 
Conformal symmetries and classification in shearfree spherically symmetric spacetimes.
(20150105)In this thesis we study the conformal geometry of static and nonstatic spherically symmetric spacetimes. We analyse the general solution of the conformal Killing vector equation subject to integrability conditions which ... 
Credit derivative valuation and parameter estimation for CIR and Vasicektype models.
(20140918)A credit default swap is a contract that ensures protection against losses occurring due to a default event of an certain entity. It is crucial to know how default should be modelled for valuation or estimating of ... 
Degree theory in nonlinear functional analysis.
(20131021)The objective of this dissertation is to expand on the proofs and concepts of Degree Theory, dealt with in chapters 1 and 2 of Deimling [28], to make it more readable and accessible to anyone who is interested in the ... 
A discrete Fourier transform based on Simpson's rule.
(20150105)Fourier transforms are mathematical operations which play a vital role in the analysis of mathematical models for problems originating from a broad spectrum of elds. In this thesis, we formulate a discrete transform ... 
Distance measures in graphs and subgraphs.
(1996)In this thesis we investigate how the modification of a graph affects various distance measures. The questions considered arise in the study of how the efficiency of communications networks is affected by the loss of ... 
Doublediffusive convection flow in a porous medium saturated with a nanofluid.
(2014)In this work, we studied heat and mass transfer in a nanofluid flow over a stretching sheet. Fluid flow in different flow geometries was studied and a coordinate transformation was used to transform the governing equations ... 
Educational managers' understanding and experiences of the implementation of inclusive education : evidence from selected urban primary schools in Zimbabwe.
This study focused on the school heads‟ understanding and experiences of the implementation of Inclusive Education in selected urban primary schools in Zimbabwe. The apparent absence of a tentative policy statement that ... 
Exact solutions for perfect fluids conformal to a Petrov type D spacetime.
(2011)Abstract is available from the print copy. 
Exact solutions for relativistic models.
(20131031)In this thesis we study spherically symmetric spacetimes related to the Einstein field equations. We consider only neutral matter and apply the Einstein field equations with isotropic pressures. Our object is to model ... 
Group analysis of equations arising in embedding theory.
(2010)Embedding theories are concerned with the embedding of a lower dimensional manifold (dim = n, say) into a higher dimensional one (usually dim = n+1, but not necessarily so). We are concerned with the particular case of ... 
Identifying and modeling the dynamics of a core cancer subnetwork.
(2011)Many recent studies have shown that the initiation of human cancer is due to the malfunction of some genes at the Rcheckpoint during the G1toS transition of the cell cycle. Identifying and modeling the dynamics of ... 
Impact of exogenous reinfection on TB infection in a genetically susceptible population.
(20131217)In this study we investigated the impact of exogenous reinfection on genetically resistant and genetically sensitive sub populations. We qualitatively analysed the dynamics of TB by assuming that TB is transmitted in two ... 
Matrices of graphs and designs with emphasis on their integral eigenpair balance characteristic.
(20150105)The interplay between graphs and designs is well researched. In this dissertation we connect designs and graphs entirely through their associated matrices – the incidence matrix for designs and the adjacency matrix for ...
