(1992)An attempt is made to study the mathematical strength of the weak second order theories of Bounded Arithmetic U$\sbsp{2}{i}$ and V$\sbsp{2}{i}$, i $\geq$ 0, introduced by S. Buss. It is first shown that U$\sbsp{2}{1}$ can ...

(20130524)In this thesis, we develop a filtering process called combinatorial filters for handling combinatorial processes that evolve over time and study two practical problems using this method. The first problem is a generalization ...

(20130524)Using the SISR asymptotic, a classification of a class of scaleseparated stochastic differential equations is achieved using combinatorics and formal language theory. This is extended to a topological notion of temperature ...

(1991)Let $\lbrack n\rbrack = \{1,2,\..., n\},A$ and let $2\sp{\lbrack n\rbrack}$ represent the subset lattice of (n) with sets ordered by inclusion. A collection I of subsets of (n) is called an ideal if every subset of a member ...
