ANALYSIS OF CLUSTER AND STRIPE SOLUTIONS IN A ONEDIMENSIONAL MODEL OF BIOLOGICAL AGGREGATION
(20120528)This thesis studies the model of swarming of organisms in groups or clusters and the solution of the interaction equation in a one dimensional biological swarm model. This process describes the behavior of some animal ... 
A Brief Exploration of Total Colouring
(20170905)A total colouring of a graph is an assignment of colours to the edges and vertices such that adjacent objects receive different colours. In this thesis, we prove partial results towards the Total Colouring Conjecture which ... 

Jan 1, 1811 ; May 31, 1811
(20090728)Two letters to James Dinwiddie from the Royal Institution dated Jan 1 and May 31, 1811. 
LAR's and PLAR's, during SARS
(20220808)The Weak Lefschetz Property (WLP) of polynomial quotient rings is studied in commutative algebra for the implications it has for a ring's Hilbert function, which is a chief object of study in commutative algebra. As ... 
Lecture Notes
(20090721)This series of lecture notes by James Dinwiddie in 1792 (?) references several subjects including mathematics, natural philosophy, Plato, Epicurius, the motion of the Earth, David Hume, and "W. Harrington". The file consists ... 
Lecture Notes
(20090723)These notes written by James Dinwiddie contain sections of notes on various topics including the history of medicine, chemistry, electricity, proof of repulsions, and mathematics. This file consists of 61 pages of notes. 
Logarithms
(20090728)This notebook kept by James Dinwiddie examines arithmetic involving logarithms. Dinwiddie includes sections on addition and subtraction as well as example calculations. This file consists of one notebook that is eleven ... 
Mathematics, No. 13

A model for a simple diffusion process
(Dalhousie Printing Centre, 1977) 

On the algebraic connectivity of graphs
(20220429)Algebraic connectivity, or the second smallest eigenvalue of the Laplacian matrix, is a wellstudied parameter in spectral graph theory. In this thesis, we present new upper bounds and asymptotic estimates for the algebraic ... 
The Root of All Dimensions
(20140821)This thesis aims to resolve the disjunction of ontology and epistemology in Platonist mathematical philosophy. This disharmony results from the assumption of the nonspatiotemporal existence of abstract mathematical entities, ... 
SOME CLASSES OF GENERALIZED CYCLOTOMIC POLYNOMIALS
(20191216)For a positive integer n the nth cyclotomic polynomial can be written as Φn(x)=∏︂(x−e^{2pi k/n} ). k∈(Z/nZ)^{×} When n = p is an odd prime, the nth cyclotomic polynomial has the special form ... 
Temperature characteristics for certain fresh waters
(Imperial Publishing Co, Ltd., 1939) 
ZeroForcing Processes on Proper Interval Graphs and Twisted Hypercubes
(20230422)Zero forcing is a graph infection process where a colour change rule is applied iteratively to a graph and an initial set of vertices, S. If S results in the entire graph becoming infected, we call this set a zero forcing ...
