Chaotic properties of setvalued dynamical systems.
(20160404)In this thesis, many classical results of topological dynamics are adapted to the setvalued case. In particular, focus is given to the notions of topological entropy and the specification property. These properties are ... 
A combinatorial property of BernsteinGelfandGelfand resolutions of unitary highest weight modules.
(, 20130924)It follows from a formula by Kostant that the difference between the highest weights of consecutive parabolic Verma modules in the BernsteinGelfandGelfandLepowsky resolution of the trivial representation is a single ... 
Comparison of smallest eigenvalues and extremal points for third and fourth order three point boundary value problems.
(, 20110914)The theory of u₀positive operators with respect to a cone in a Banach space is applied to the linear differential equations u⁽⁴⁾ + λ₁p(x)u = 0 and u⁽⁴⁾ + λ₂q(x)u = 0, 0 ≤ x ≤ 1, with each satisfying the boundary conditions ... 
Diagrams and reduced decompositions for cominuscule flag varieties and affine Grassmannians.
(20100623)We develop a system of canonical reduced decompositions of minimal coset representatives of quotients corresponding to cominuscule flag varieties and affine Grassmannians. This canonical decomposition allows, in the first ... 
Eigenvalue comparison theorems for certain boundary value problems and positive solutions for a fifth order singular boundary value problem.

Existence and uniqueness of solutions of boundary value problems by matching solutions.

Existence of positive solutions to right focal three point singular boundary value problems.

Existence of positive solutions to singular right focal boundary value problems.

GlazmanKreinNaimark theory, leftdefinite theory, and the square of the Legendre polynomials differential operator.
(20160227)As an application of a general leftdefinite spectral theory, Everitt, Littlejohn and Wellman, in 2002, developed the leftdefinite theory associated with the classical Legendre selfadjoint secondorder differential ... 
Global SL(2,R) representations of the Schrödinger equation with timedependent potentials.

Indecomposability in inverse limits.

The leftdefinite spectral analysis of the legendre type differential equation.

Local automorphisms of finitary incidence algebras.
(20170707)Let $R$ be a commutative, indecomposable ring with identity and let $(P,\le)$ be a locally finite partially ordered set. Let $FI(P)$ denote the finitary incidence algebra of $(P,\le)$ over $R$. In this case, the finitary ... 
On a ring associated to F[x].
