  • Numerical Tools for Describing Musical Compositions 

    Price, Jacob R. (Kalamazoo College, 2012)
    The goal of this paper is to apply the methodologies of statistical mechanics to develop flexible tools for use in computational musicology. Classical statistical mechanics is the study of extremely information-rich ...
  • Object Oriented Analysis of TACT Accelerometer Calibration Tool 

    Callam, Benjamin G. (Kalamazoo College, 2003)
    In the summer of 2002 I was employed by the University of Michigan Research Institute, Biosciences division to create a program that would aid the process of accelerometer calibration for transducers used in crash testing. ...
  • Odd Perfect Numbers 

    Hightower, William Lee (Kalamazoo College, 1964-04-20)
  • On a Generalization of the Bestvina-Brady Construction 

    Goel, Abhay (Kalamazoo College, 2017)
    This work builds on work in [1] and [2] to study the homotopy fibre of a map between polyhedral products. The construction itself generalizes the definition of Bestvina-Brady group. Here we compute the cellular chain complex ...
  • On Curves of Constant Breadth 

    Phillips, Virginia R. (Kalamazoo College, 1963)
    This paper is concerned with figures of constant breadth. When the term constant width is used it is to mean the same as constant breadth. The terms are used interchangeably in the field. To provide a certain amount of ...
  • On Fundamental Solutions 

    Grantham, Paul Vernon (Kalamazoo College, 1969)
  • On Green's Function Method For Solving Differeptial Equations 

    Hernández, Consuelo (Kalamazoo College, 1996)
    This paper was written under the assumption that the reader has been previously exposed to methods for solving ordinary differential equations, linear algebra and some real analysis. Results from other mathematical topics ...
  • On The Determination Of Parameters by Means of Functional Inversion 

    Toprak, Gregory (Kalamazoo College, 2014)
    This paper attempts to discover how to determine the parameters of a function using the zeroes of the function. Generalizing affine algebraic varieties, we define and develop the locus of a function, to that end. Specific ...
  • On von Neumann's Model of an Expanding Economy 

    Howard, James M. (Kalamazoo College, 1966)
    In the present paper the method of proof is quite different from that in von Neumann's original article. The three proofs of existence herein involve game theory while the original proof involves elements of topology. ...
  • One Direction in Mathematical Linguistics: Generative Grammars 

    Bullwinkle, Candace (Kalamazoo College, 1971)
    My interest in mathematical linguistics stems from a curiosity about languages and a desire to be scientific in a study of them. My purpose for an SIP was to learn as much as possible about this field as I could in the ...
  • Optimization of the 2.0 Version CBMS II Invoicing / Accounts Receivable / Inventory System at Burroughs Corporation 

    Kienle, Judith G. (Kalamazoo College, 1978)
    This report will deal mainly with the Invoicing programs and their interfaces (interactions) with the Accounts Receivable, Inventory and General Ledger modules. The Invoicing module provides the user with a method of ...
  • The Origin of Point-Set Topology 

    Edmonds, J. Ronald (Kalamazoo College, 1965)
    I have restricted my researches to the origin of general topology and carried my work past 1900. Within this framework, going back before Cantor's conception of set theory (1879-1884) is of little specific importance; ...
  • Original Date Conversion Study 

    Figgins, Denise M. (Kalamazoo College, 1976)
    My original assignment was to design the logic for, and write a program in Basic to calculate conversion costs. The easiest and most efficient method of running the conversion costs calculations required the extensive retrieval ...
  • Orthogonality and Related Ideas 

    Warner, John W. (Kalamazoo College, 1966)
    The primary purpose of the following material was to provide a learning experience for the author by involving him in an area in which he had not previously worked, by posing, as a problem to him the explanation of some ...
  • Patterns and Statistics on Set Partitions and Restricted Growth Functions 

    Reppuhn, Lindsey (Kalamazoo College, 2015)
    We consider partitions π of the set [n] = {1; 2,….., n}and denote the set of these parti- tions by _n. We use the notation _ = B1=B2/ : : : =Bk ` [n] to indicate that [n] = ωiBi and call the Bi blocks. If S _ [n] and _ ` ...
  • Plot-10 Graphics Package 

    Penix, Michael (Kalamazoo College, 1985)
    The key accomplishment of this SIP is the transformation of the existing pieces into a simple, usable, whole. Prior to the work presented here, PLOT-10 was available on the system in what was often called an unusable ...
  • A Problem in Business Forecasting 

    Wolfson, Robert (Kalamazoo College, 1977)
    The project began with an examination of available forecasting algorithms, and resulted in the picking and programming of one. Due to numerous constraints and different sets of requirements, the programming stage of the ...
