#### On Transcendence of Irrationals with Non-eventually Periodic b-adic Expansions

(University of Waterloo, 2010-05-18)

It is known that almost all numbers are transcendental in the sense of Lebesgue measure. However there is no simple rule to separate transcendental numbers from algebraic numbers. Today research in this direction is about ...

#### The Mordell-Lang Theorem from the Zilber Dichotomy

(University of Waterloo, 2010-04-30)

We present a largely self-contained exposition of Ehud Hrushovski's proof of the function field Mordell-Lang conjecture beginning from the Zilber Dichotomy for differentially closed fields and separably closed fields. Our ...

#### Integral Moments of Quadratic Dirichlet L-functions: A Computational Perspective

(University of Waterloo, 2010-04-27)

In recent years, the moments of L-functions has been a topic of growing interest in the field of analytic number theory. New techniques, including applications of Random Matrix Theory and multiple Dirichlet series, have ...

#### On the Modular Theory of von Neumann Algebras

(University of Waterloo, 2010-09-17)

The purpose of this thesis is to provide an exposition of the \textit{modular theory} of von Neumann algebras. The motivation of the theory is to classify and describe von Neumann algebras which do not admit a trace, and ...

#### On Convolution Squares of Singular Measures

(University of Waterloo, 2010-08-25)

We prove that if $1 > \alpha > 1/2$, then there exists a probability measure $\mu$ such that the Hausdorff dimension of its support is $\alpha$ and $\mu*\mu$ is a Lipschitz function of class $\alpha-1/2$.

#### Settling Time Reducibility Orderings

(University of Waterloo, 2010-04-28)

It is known that orderings can be formed with settling time domination and strong settling time domination as relations on c.e. sets. However, it has been shown that no such ordering can be formed when considering computation ...

#### On the Representation Theory of Semisimple Lie Groups

(University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)

This thesis is an expository account of three central theorems in the representation theory of semisimple Lie groups, namely the theorems of Borel-Weil-Bott, Casselman-Osborne and Kostant. The first of these realizes all ...
