Impact of Averaging Period on a MediumScale Wind Turbine Power Curve and Prediction of Annual Energy Production
(Kalamazoo College, 2016)A reliable method for the prediction of Annual Energy Production is necessary for the United States to achieve its goal of 20% wind energy by 2030. Along with the pressure to reduce error in energy yield prediction is the ... 
The Importance of Rigor in the High School Mathematics Curriculum for Success at the College Level
(Kalamazoo College, 2011)Following the implementation of the Kalamazoo Promise, the city of Kalamazoo was seeing a new population of students going to college. Students who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to attend. With this came ... 
Impossible Spaces and Rendering Algorithms
(Kalamazoo College, 2009)The methods discovered in this project could lend themselves artistically in both digital and live applications in visual media to create several interesting illusions. These illusions can be used to simply create confusing ... 
Improving User Interfaces During Development
(Kalamazoo College, 2002)20 years after the introduction of the personal computer, novice computers users are still experiencing software usability problems. Most usability problems are difficulties with the user interface. One possible solution ... 
In the Land of Linear Algebra : A Cartoon Coursepack
(Kalamazoo College, 20121212)A coursepack, in cartoon form, to supplement any introductory linear algebra course or textbook. 
Infinity
(Kalamazoo College, 1971)In this paper we will trace the changing notion of infln1ty throughout Western thought. In the first part ideas from both mathematics and philosophy wl11 be brought together, for often in discussions on infinity the ... 
Information Theory
(Kalamazoo College, 1967)This is a purely expository paper. The concepts come primarily from Shannon's intuitionbased proofs and Khinchlo's more rigorous ones; all definitions come from these sources. Intermediate steps and some short proofs ... 
Information Theory and the Genetic Code
(Kalamazoo College, 196804)Every organism is built from a complex set of instructions coded as a sequence of the four different nuoleotides of the DNA molecule. These genetic instructions have evolved for a period of three billion years until today ... 
Inpatient Revenue Model of Bronson Methodist Hospital
(Kalamazoo College, 1975)The revenue model of the hospital is a collection of computer programs which is designed to enable a prediction to be made concernng inpatient revenues on the bases of a patient mix for the period being considered and ... 
Input Output Economics: Studies of Leontief's Mathematic / Economic Models
(Kalamazoo College, 1991)The inputoutput model may be used to predict the economic future. With just two or three educated guesses to modify the technical tables of the model, reasonably accurate results about the future may be found. Although ... 
The International Marketing Promotion Allocation Workshop: An Internship at The Upjohn Company
(Kalamazoo College, 1984)My project while at Upjohn was to design a computer simulation game for Ian Stockdale, Hospital Marketing Manager, and David Harmelink, Product Manager, of the International Marketing Planning unit. The game is basically ... 
Internship Report on the CaltechJPL Concurrent Computation Project
(Kalamazoo College, 1985)During the fall quarter of 1985 I worked at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) as a computer technician. In my section there were both 'hardware people' and 'software people'. I fell into the latter category. During my ... 
Introduction to Complex Analysis
(Kalamazoo College, 1974)This paper covers all material in the first twothirds of the yearlong course in basic complex variables taught by Dr. Stoll at the University of Notre Dame. It was wrltten from two sets of lecture notes: one set written ... 
An Introduction to Nonstandard Analysis
(Kalamazoo College, 1996) 
An Introduction to Polynomial Approximation Theory
(Kalamazoo College, 1970)This is not meant to be original work. On the contrary, I have drawn very heavily from my source material. I first read the chapter in Apostol's book on numerical analysis to get a good background in approximation ... 
An Introduction to SAS Programming
(Kalamazoo College, 2000)The author used SAS (Statistical Analysis System) software to analyze the data found in the University of Michigan's Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) study entitled Violence And Threats ... 
An Introduction to the Mathematical Theory of Linear Programming
(Kalamazoo College, 1964)This paper is an attempt to provide a relatively selfcontained and basic mathematical justification for the LP problem and the simplex method of solving it. The first two parts of the paper outline the aspects of the ... 
An Introduction to the Statistical Bootstrap : Examining Confidence Intervals Using Flight Delay Data
(Kalamazoo College, 2017)Bootstrapping is an important resampling method with the ability to provide statistical inference with fewer assumptions then most other statistical inference methods. Bootstrapping can be more accurate than classical ... 
Introduction to the Theory of Games: Finite ZeroSum Two Person Games
(Kalamazoo College, 1968)The intent of this paper is to present an introduction to the theory of matrix games, with particular emphasis on the different approaches to the solution of such games. Although I have rearranged material and ... 
An Introductory Study of Hyperbolic Geometry
(Kalamazoo College, 1965)The object of this paper is to develop Hyperbolic geometry using, as tools, only the postulates and propositions of Euclid (excluding the ones dealing with parallel lines) and the tools of logic. To the best of my ...
