Economic evaluation of management strategies for cattle ranching in semi-arid regions.
Arid and semi-arid regions have increasingly become the subject of much research and debate by scientists. By their very nature, these regions characteristically exhibit extremes which complicate the implementation of ...
The application of the multigrid algorithm to the solution of stiff ordinary differential equations resulting from partial differential equations.
We wish to apply the newly developed multigrid method  to the solution of ODEs resulting from the semi-discretization of time dependent PDEs by the method of lines. In particular, we consider the general form of two ...
Mathematical analysis of tuberculosis vaccine models and control stategies.
The epidemiological study of tuberculosis (TB) has been ongoing for several decades, but the most effective control strategy is yet to be completely understood. The basic reproduction number, R₀, has been found to be ...
The preliminary group classification of the equation utt = f(x,ux)uxx + g(x, ux)
We study the class of partial differential equations Utt = f(x, ux)uxx + g(x, u x), with arbitrary functions f(x, u x) and g(x, u x), from the point of view of group classification. The principal Lie algebra of infinitesimal ...
Completion of uniform and metric frames.
The term "frame" was introduced by C H Dowker, who studied them in a long series of joint papers with D Papert Strauss. J R Isbell , in a path breaking paper  pointed out the need to introduce separate ...
Maths anxiety and communication apprehension as barriers to learning mathematics.
As learners progress through the educational system their interest in mathematics diminishes. Although mathematics is designed to challenge learners, it has produced a high number of failures. Mathematics is most often ...
Mathematical attitudes and achievement strategies of successful mathematics learners.
Too often, discussions about Mathematics express feelings of anguish and despair; and, indeed Mathematics results in general in South Africa can be described as dismal. The Department of Education (DoE) reported that in ...
Closure operators on complete lattices with application to compactness.

A measure-theoretic approach to chaotic dynamical systems.
The past few years have witnessed a growth in the study of the long-time behaviour of physical, biological and economic systems using measure-theoretic and probabilistic methods. In this dissertation we present a study of ...
