Understanding Rings of Invariant Polynomials
(Kalamazoo College, 2002)This paper is designed to introduce undergraduates with some knowledge of abstract algebra to the field of invariant theory. After defining representations and invariant polynomials, key theorems such as Noether's bound ... 
Unique Factorization Domains and Generalizations
(Kalamazoo College, 1987)The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic states that every integer greater than 1 is either a prime or the product of primes. This product is unique up to rearranging the order of the primes. Unique factorization is a ... 
The Unsolvability of a Fifth Degree Polynomial and Related Galois Theory
(Kalamazoo College, 1970)In retrospect, this paper has been divided into two related parts. First, after a preliminary example, we considered the fundamental theorem of Galois theory and related concepts, among them: a) extensions, b) normal ... 
Upjohn Job Report: GPSS Simulation of Credit and Collection Department
(Kalamazoo College, 1981)During the fall quarter, 1981, I served as an intern in the Management Science unit of the Information Management Services Division of The Upjohn Company in Portage, Michigan. Within the structure of The Upjohn Company, ... 
The Use of Automation in the Quality Assurance Endeavors of Software Development Companies
(Kalamazoo College, 2002)Quality assurance is a vast topic with many smaller divisions. It is used in virtually every industry in the world in some form or another. One interesting facet of the use of quality assurance is the use of automation ... 
User's Manuals for SimplexMethod Programs on the Western Michigan University Computer Program Library
(Kalamazoo College, 1981)The author created manuals for LINPRO and RVSLPR, two programs using the simplex method of solving linear programming problems. 
Using COBOL to Construct Commutation Columns
(Kalamazoo College, 1968)The purpose of this paper is to serve as an introduction to certain aspects of two fields: actuarial science and computer technology. More specifically, I have used the computer to prepare tables which are basic to ... 
Visualization of FourDimensional Objects

Water Infiltration in Unsaturated Soils: A Comparison of Analytical and Numerical Solutions to Richards' Equation
(Kalamazoo College, 1994)We consider a mathematical model for a current problem in the fields of soil science and environmental engineering. We examine analytical and numerical solutions to Richards' equation, which describes the onedimensional ... 
WebScraping : How Charlotte Is A Life Saver Again
(Kalamazoo College, 2014)The demand for information is ever increasing. While some have the privilege of accessing private data, others look for ways to collect information from where anyone could visit: the Internet. On the Internet, there is ... 
Wind and Current Study at Detroit's Metropolitan Beach
(Kalamazoo College, 1962)It was decided that pertinent studies to be carried out in the Beach area should be measurement of water current and wind. A current indicator was built early in t he summer. The unit built was a cylindrical structure about ... 
Work Study at The Upjohn Company
(Kalamazoo College, 1976)The initial idea developed by Mr. Leslie was to make a technique called "fineplotting" available on two very advanced types of terminals made by the GenCom Systems Company. Fineplotting is very similar· to regular plotting ...
