Wu, Damin, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
In this thesis, we derive the asymptotic expansion of the KiihlerEinstein metrics on certain quasiprojective varieties, which can be compactified by adding a divisor with simple normal crossings. The weighted ChengYau ...

Wong, Yee Lok, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
We present two recent parallel programming languages, PetaBricks and Julia, and demonstrate how we can use these two languages to reexamine classic numerical algorithms in new approaches for highperformance computing. ...

Preprojective algebras [Pi]q of quivers Q were introduced by Gelfand and Ponomarev in 1979 in order to provide a model for quiver representations (in the special case of finite Dynkin quivers). They showed that in the ...

Sheridan, Nicholas (Nicholas James)

This thesis is concerned with Kontsevich's Homological Mirror Symmetry conjecture. In Chapter 1, which is based on [1], we consider the ndimensional pair of pants, which is defined to be the complement of n + 2 generic ...

Hollander, Sharon Joy, 1975
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
We give a homotopy theoretic characterization of stacks on a site C which allows one to think of stacks as the homotopy sheaves of groupoids on C. We use this characterization to construct a model category, that is a formal ...

Biss, Daniel Kálmán, 1977
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
In this thesis, I establish a homotopy equivalence between the matroid Grassmannian [parallel] MacP(k, n) [parallel] and the real Grassmannian G(k, n) of kplanes in [Real set]n. This is accomplished by finding a Schubert ...

Hu, David L., 1979
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
We present a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of the numerous hydrodynamic propulsion mechanisms employed by waterwalking arthropods (insects and spiders). In our experimental study, high speed ...

Kamenova, Ljudmila K
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
In this thesis, I consider hyperKähler manifolds of complex dimension 4 which are fibrations. It is known that the fibers are abelian varieties and the base is P2. We assume that the general fiber is isomorphic to a product ...

Shirokoff, David (David George)
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
In this thesis, we address two problems involving partial differential equations. In the first problem, we reformulate the incompressible NavierStokes equations into an equivalent pressure Poisson system. The new system ...

Goddard, Christina M. (Christina Margaret)

In this thesis, we effectively construct a predecessor function for the type definitions in the raw hierarchy for any weaklyscattered theory. Using this predecessor function, we improve a recent bounding result by Sacks ...
