  • Fieldsteel, Nathan Mulvey (2017-04-21)
    This thesis is comprised of two projects in applied computational mathematics. In Chapter 1, we discuss the geometry and combinatorics of geometrically characterized sets. These are finite sets of n+d choose n points in ...

  • Delcourt, Michelle Jeannette (2017-03-27)
    This thesis focuses on using techniques from probability to solve problems from extremal and structural combinatorics. The main problem in Chapter 2 is determining the typical structure of $t$-intersecting families in ...

  • Nawaz, Tayyab (2017-04-07)
    In the first part of this thesis, we will discuss the classical XY model on complete graph in the mean-field (infinite-vertex) limit. Using theory of large deviations and Stein's method, in particular, Cramér and Sanov-type ...

  • Petrickova, Sarka (2017-04-19)
    The fast developing field of extremal combinatorics provides a diverse spectrum of powerful tools with many applications to economics, computer science, and optimization theory. In this thesis, we focus on counting and ...

  • Pho-on, Witsarut (2017-04-19)
    In 1996, Masur and Minsky showed that the curve graph is hyperbolic. Recently, Hensel, Przytycki, and Webb proved a stronger result which was the uniform hyperbolicity of the curve graph, and they also gave the first proof ...
