    Description:
    This paper uses the Survey of Consumer Finances and an estimation strategy developed by Gicheva (2012) to estimate the relationships between student loans and lifecycle transitions. I use probit models and an instrumental variables strategy to address concerns about endogenous student loan amounts. First, I replicate the primary results of Gicheva (2012) using an updated data set, and find that student loans decrease the probability that both men and women have ever been married. Then, I show...

    Description:
    This thesis has two parts. The first discusses the Laplacian and how to solve it in arbitrary domains. It will cover Dirichlet's Principle, the Fundamental Solution, and Green's Function, as well as examples on the half space and ball. The second will cover the inverse problem of detecting corrosion in a plate of metal using heat. It will discuss the general solution method, regularization of the solution, and analyze the results.

    Description:
    Ramsey theory studies conditions that are necessary so that we may preserve "order." Often, we will start with a large structure, and we will break it into finitely many classes. Our typical theorems will say that if the initial structure is large enough, then one of the classes must contain a copy of the original structure. Usually, we will find the smallest number of elements required so that this property is guaranteed to occur; this is often a difficult, but illuminating, problem.

    Description:
    When digital data is transmitted through an unreliable communication channel, it is often the case that errors can occur, causing the information received to differ from what was originally sent. Fortunately, there are ways to encode data so that errors can be detected and even corrected. This expository thesis focuses on a special class of codes, called linear codes, that have particularly nice properties that are useful for error detection and correction.

    Description:
    While some study has been conducted on Disney films and gender roles, the research is minimal on Disney Princess films from 2009 and forward. In contrast to their predecessors, recent Disney princesses are not marriage focused, display more agency, and have bodies that reflect physical development that is consistent with their age. Furthermore, the portrayal of older females is not singularly vilified and they are not absent as in comparison to previous Disney princesses films. Through culti...

    Description:
    The relationships between attachment with God and dyadic attachment, separation-individuation, identity development and psychological well-being were assessed in a sample of 320 (Mage=19.45; 77% Catholic) emerging adults. Dyadic attachment was measured with the Close Relationship Questionnaire (CRQ). Attachment with God was assessed through an exploratory measure modeled off the CRQ. Identity orientation was measured with the Identity Style Inventory (ISI). Results showed that attachment with...

    Description:
    This paper reveals how Caillebotte participated in, yet also set himself apart from the Impressionist movement. While Caillebotte included his own works in the Impressionist Exhibitions, his style does not completely align with typical Impressionist approaches: he celebrates Haussmannian architecture, which the older members avoided, because he was too young to know medieval Paris; he paints with calculated brushstrokes, a result of his Academic training at the École des Beaux-Arts; and he ut...
