    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Abstract:

    The re-installation of the decorative arts collection at the Snite Museum of Art in 2017 offered an opportunity to rethink the interpretative strategies employed in the galleries. This brochure offers visitors a brief overview of the collection, its strengths, and its areas of growth. It is divided into two parts. Part I addresses materials and techniques and juxtaposes some ancient material with more modern and contemporary examples. In addition, it introduces the reader to various technique…

    Description:

    Standard interior point methods in semidefinite programming track a solution path for a homotopy defined by a system of polynomial equations. By viewing this in the context of numerical algebraic geometry, we are able to employ techniques to handle various cases which can arise. Adaptive precision path tracking techniques can help navigate around ill-conditioned areas. When the optimizer is singular with respect to the first-order optimality conditions, endgames can be used to efficiently and…

    Abstract:

    It is my view that a bookplate should reflect the donor’s interests and accomplishments as well as the symbols of the library where the collection is housed. The accomplishments and reputation of Marston Morse are so great that my first task, after studying hls life and career, was to somehow narrow my choices from dozens of significant milestones to a meaningful and manageable few.

    Abstract:

    Hamilton equations are such that the relation, between the coordinates and momenta at time t and at time t 0, is a contact transformation. Methods of integration of Hamilton equations, which do preserve the contact transformation property are given here. These methods are of first and second order. They are given, for the equation x= f(x,t), then for the case of one degree of freedom, then for the general case. Some of the formulae are implicit.

    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:

    Lead exposure in SJC continues to be a persistent, complex public health issue. Data released in December 2016 showed that census tract 6 in South Bend had the highest rates of EBLL in the state of Indiana. Because lead exposure can produce significant cognitive and physiological damage even at very low levels of exposure, immediate action was required. Understanding what the epidemiologic profile of lead in SJC was among the first steps taken to address this issue. The St. Joseph Coun…

    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…
