   A Transport Redundancy Approach to Spatial Clustering. Mingyue Gao RM 020, Friday May 2nd 3:30 pm.   Abstract—- In this thesis, we consider a new random walks-based method for measuring clustering on finite graphs. The method is versatile and can provide valuable insight into the locations of center of clusters. Some results and applications are […]

Thesis Defense: Heather Gaddy

Posted on: April 21, 2014

  Min-Max Recursive Sequences Heather Gaddy Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 1:30 pm in room 122.  In this talk, we study integer solutions to minimum-maximum delay difference equations. In particular, we consider an open question regarding convergence of solutions to these equations. Some results related to the greatest common divisors of elements in underlying sets […]
