  • A New Way to Look at Homomorphisms

    Guo, Yue (University of Waikato, 2013)
    This thesis is about arbitrary functions between groups. We look at two way to measure how close an arbitrary function is to being a homomorphism. We first look at an action of the group on functions in which homomorphisms ...
  • Investigating Gravity and Electromagnetism on a 10 Dimensional Manifold with Local Symmetry so(2,3)

    Ussher, Matthew Neville (University of Waikato, 2013)
    The Hawthorn model [1] is built upon the idea that the Lie algebra so(2, 3) is a more natural description of the local structure of space-time than the Poincare Lie algebra, with the former contracting to the latter in the ...
  • Maxwell's Equations on a 10-Dimensional Manifold with local Symmetry so(2,3)

    Crump, William Peter (University of Waikato, 2012)
    The Hawthorn model is built upon the idea that the Lie algebra so(2, 3) is a more natural description of the local structure of spacetime than the Poincar´e Lie algebra. This model uses a 10-dimensional spacetime referred ...
