Almost weak Asplund spaces
(The University of Waikato, 2004)Continuous convex functions have long been known to be generically differentiable on Euclidean spaces. However, in 1968 Asplund decided to investigate and classify those Banach spaces that possess this Euclidean space ... 
Brocard's problem and variations
(University of Waikato, 2013)This thesis examines the work which has been done on Brocard’s problem which is to study solutions to n! + 1 = x², and related problems of the form n! = f(x) or n! = f(x, y), where f is a polynomial with integer ... 
Comparison between the RSA cryptosystem and elliptic curve cryptography
(The University of Waikato, 2010)In the globalization era, cryptography becomes more popular and powerful; in fact it is very important in many areas (i.e. mathematics, computer science, networks, etc). This thesis provides an overview and comparison ... 
Computational and empirical thermal modelling of a proposed SOFC stack housing design
(The University of Waikato, 2004)Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) generate electricity cleanly, efficiently and quietly. There has been much effort in commercialising planar and large tubular SOFCs in the past two decades. Some research has involved modelling ... 
Critical sets of full Latin squares
(University of Waikato, 2016)This thesis explores the properties of critical sets of the full nLatin square and related combinatorial structures including full designs, (m,n,2)balanced Latin rectangles and nLatin cubes. In Chapter 3 we study ... 
Multiply perfect numbers of low abundancy
(University of Waikato, 2010)The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the properties of multiperfect numbers with low abundancy, and to include the structure, bounds, and density of certain multiperfect numbers. As a significant result of this ...
