    Description:

    A fundamental problem in algebraic geometry is to decompose the solution set of a given polynomial system. A numerical description of this solution set is called a numerical irreducible decomposition and currently all standard algorithms use a sequence of homotopies forming a dimension-by-dimension approach. In this article, we pair a classical result to compute a smooth point on every irreducible component in every dimension using a single homotopy together with the theory of isosingular s…

    Abstract:

    Abstract This study investigated the effectiveness of a treatment, based on self-regulation theory, to enhance the coping self-efficacy of persons with cancer. The intervention, which is called Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), is based on Solution Focused Therapy. MET focuses on mastery experiences to improve the participants’ self-efficacy for coping. The participants, who volunteered for the study, were selected based their less-than-average coping self-efficacy scores and were randomly a…

    Description:

    Standard interior point methods in semidefinite programming can be viewed as tracking a solution path for a homotopy defined by a system of bilinear equations. By considering this in the context of numerical algebraic geometry, we employ numerical algebraic geometric techniques such as adaptive precision path tracking, endgames, and projective space to accurately solve semidefinite programs. We develop feasibility tests for both primal and dual problems which can distinguish between the fou…

    Description:

    A common problem when analyzing models, such as a mathematical modeling of a biological process, is to determine if the unknown parameters of the model can be determined from given input-output data. Identifiable models are models such that the unknown parameters can be determined to have a finite number of values given input-output data. The total number of such values over the complex numbers is called the identifiability degree of the model. Unidentifiable models are models such that th…

    Description:

    Computational tools in numerical algebraic geometry can be used to numerically approximate solutions to a system of polynomial equations. If the system is well-constrained (i.e., square), Newton’s method is locally quadratically convergent near each nonsingular solution. In such cases, Smale’s alpha theory can be used to certify that a given point is in the quadratic convergence basin of some solution. This was extended to certifiably determine the reality of the corresponding sol…

    Abstract:

    Obesity rates in the U.S. for both children and adults are alarmingly high, particularly for those in low-income households. The current project, a partnership between Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties Head Start Consortium and the University of Notre Dame’s William J. Shaw Center for Children and Families, focused on reducing obesogenic home environments for low-income families. Focusing on home environments, particularly for young children, is important because research shows that mothers are…

    Description:

    The Mexican patent database collects data on all patents issued in Mexico from roughly 1840 to the onset of the Mexican Revolution in 1911, totaling approximately thirteen thousand five hundred (13,500) discrete patent records. At present, this is the most comprehensive record of patents issued by Mexican governments during the nineteenth century. There is no single archival or published source that contains a comprehensive list or data on Mexican patents issued over the course of the long …

    Abstract:

    This report is a direct result of consultation with the research communities funded by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of this effort is to provide feedback to NSF on current best practices with regard to research data curation, discovery, access, preservation, and re-use, and suggestions for areas of improvement and investment that could facilitate broader curation of, access to, and re-use of research data in the fu…
