  • Siweya, Hlengani James (1994-04)
    We define morphism (E, M)-structures in an abstract category, develop their basic properties and present some examples. We also consider the existence of such factorization structures, and find conditions under which they ...
  • Seeletse, Solly Matshonisa (1994-11)
    Exponential smoothing algorithms are very attractive for the practical world such as in industry. When considering bivariate exponential smoothing methods, in addition to the properties of univariate methods, ...
  • Van Heerden, Liske (1994-11-30)
    The unique problems encountered when analyzing weather data sets - that is, measurements taken while conducting a meteorological experiment- have forced statisticians to reconsider the conventional analysis methods and ...
  • Thulapersad, Sarah (1994-12)
    In the paper [HSS] Herrlich, Salicrup and Strecker were able to show that Kuratowski / Mrowka's Theorem concerning compactness for topological spaces could be applied to a wider setting. In this dissertation, which is based ...
  • Hildebrand, Annelize (1995-11)
    In developing an understanding of real-world problems, researchers develop mathematical and statistical models. Various model selection methods exist which can be used to obtain a mathematical model that best describes ...
  • Schoeman, Daniel Frederik (1996-06)
  • Mohanlal, Pramod (1997-06)
    Over the past two decades there has been an upsurge in interest in structural equation modelling (SEM). Applications abound in the social sciences and econometrics, but the use of this multivariate technique is not so ...
  • Taljaard, Monica (1997-06)
    Non-response is an error common to most surveys. In this dissertation, the error of non-response is described in terms of its sources and its contribution to the Mean Square Error of survey estimates. Various response and ...
  • Nieuwoudt, Reina (1997-06)
    As deel van die weermodifikasie-eksperiment in Bethlehem, Suid-Afiika, is 'n reenmeternetwerk geinstalleer, en word die neerslagwaardes R; wat by 43 reenmeterstasies waargeneem is, vergelyk met die waargenome radar ...
  • Mohoto, Seth Themba (1998-06)
    Two well-known methods of improving the reliability of a system are (i) provision of redundant units, and (ii) repair maintenance. In a redundant system more units made available for performing the system function when ...
  • Anguelov, Roumen Anguelov (1998-09)
    Interval analysis is an essential tool in the construction of validated numerical solutions of Initial Value Problems (IVP) for Ordinary (ODE) and Partial (PDE) Differential Equations. A validated solution typically ...
  • Pauw, Jeanette (1998-11)
    Therapeutic horseback riding (THR) uses the horse as a therapeutic apparatus in physical and psychological therapy. This dissertation suggests a more appropriate technique for measuring the effect of THR. A research ...
  • Burger, Alewyn Petrus (1998-11)
    The queens graph Qn has the squares of then x n chessboard as its vertices; two squares are adjacent if they are in the same row, column or diagonal. A set D of squares of Qn is a dominating set for Qn if every square ...
  • Grobler, Petrus Jochemus Paulus (1998-11)
    The lower and upper independent, domination and irredundant numbers of the graph G = (V, E) are denoted by i ( G) , f3 ( G), 'Y ( G), r ( G), ir ( G) and IR ( G) respectively. These six numbers are called the domination ...
  • Moodley, Lohini (1999-01)
    For a graph G = (V (G), E (G)), a set S ~ V (G) dominates G if each vertex in V (G) \S is adjacent to a vertex in S. The domination number I (G) (independent domination number i (G)) of G is the minimum cardinality ...
  • Busetti, Franco Raoul (2000-06)
    In this thesis we investigate the application of two heuristic methods, genetic algorithms and tabu/scatter search, to the optimisation of realistic portfolios. The model is based on the classical mean-variance approach, ...
  • Nailana, Koena Rufus (2000-11)
    This thesis is divided into two parts: Ordered spaces of Continuous Functions and the algebras associated with the topology of pointwise convergence of the associated construct, and Strictly completely regular bitopological ...
  • Fletcher, Lizelle (2002-06)
    In this thesis the two disciplines of Statistics and Artificial Neural Networks are combined into an integrated study of a data set of a weather modification Experiment. An extensive literature study on artificial neural ...
  • Khoury, Maroun Clive (2002-09)
    Chapter 1 reviews better-known factorization theorems of a square matrix. For example, a square matrix over a field can be expressed as a product of two symmetric matrices; thus square matrices over real numbers can be ...
  • Brooks, Hannalie Helena (2002-11)
    In this thesis we shall examine the role of measurerability in the theory of Lebesgue Integration. This shall be done in the context of the real line where we define the notion of an integral of a bounded real-valued ...
