    Evidence from electrophysiology suggests that non-human primates produce reach-to-grasp movements based on their functional end-goal rather than on the biomechanical requirements of the movement. However, the invasiveness ...
  • King, James Douglass; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Philosophy, 2004)
    There is an interesting connection between cardinality of language and the distinction of lingua characterica from calculus rationator. Calculus-type languages have only a countable number of sentences, and only a single ...
  • Mahmud, Mohammad Sakib; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : Universtiy of Lethbridge, Department of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2019)
    In this thesis, we have proposed efficient implementations of linear algebra kernels such as matrix-vector and matrix-matrix multiplications by formulating arithmetic calculations in terms of diagonals and thereby giving ...

    This thesis presents the following: (i) A detailed exposition of Rankin's classical work on the convulsion of two modular L-functions is given; (ii) Let S be the calss Dirichlet series with Euler product on Re(s) > 1 that ...
  • Behbahani, Majid; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2004)
    Our main aim in this thesis is to study and search for orthogonal matrices which have a certain kind of block structure. The most desirable class of matrices for our purpose are orthogonal designs constructible from 16 ...
  • Muhammad Arif, Umair; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics & Computer Science, 2016)
    Satisfiability problem is the first problem known to be NP-complete [8, 28]. In this thesis, we have studied the minimization version of the satisfiability problem called the MINSAT. Given a set of boolean variables and ...

  • Lijoka, Oluwaseun Francis; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2022)
    In this thesis, we consider the development of algorithms suitable for designing evacuation procedures in sparse or remote communities. The works are extensions of sink location problems on dynamic networks, which are ...
  • Mithila, Nasrin Hakim; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2016)
    Efficient determination of large sparse Hessian matrices leads to solving many optimization problems. Exploiting sparsity and symmetry of the Hessian matrix can reduce the number of function evaluations required to determine ...
  • Sultana, Marzia; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2016)
    Evaluation of the Hessian matrix of a scalar function is a subproblem in many numerical optimization algorithms. For large-scale problems often the Hessian matrix is sparse and structured, and it is preferable to exploit ...
  • Totani, Yash; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2021)
    In this thesis, we study the problem of representing integers by quadratic forms. The formulas for the number of representations are obtained as a sum of an Eisenstein part and a cusp part. We begin by solving the ...
