This paper will be looking at the development of random Fibonacci sequences throughout history and investigating the various mathematical methods used by many mathematicians to determine important qualities about the sequence, which all lead to the growth rate.
samkoper Newton's Method Cycles
Based on the paper Sometimes Newton's Method Cycles, we first asked ourselves if there were any Newtonian Method Cycle functions which have non-trivial guesses. We encountered a way to create functions that cycle between a set number of points with any initial, non-trivial guesses when Newton's Method is applied. We exercised these possibilities through the methods of 2-cycles, 3-cycles and 4-cycles. We then generalized these cycles into k-cycles. After generalizing Newton's Method, we found the conditions that skew the cycles into a spiral pattern which will either converge, diverge or become a near-cycle. Once we obtained all this information, we explored additional questions that rose up from our initial exploration of Newton's Method.
Edgara Vanoye & MacKay Martin Measurement of the dynamic viscosity of Canola Oil using a ball drop
The viscosity of a particular fluid is an interesting parameter that plays an important role in fluid dynamics of that fluid. We chose the common household cooking item canola oil. Using a ball drop, we set out to measure viscosity at various temperatures and create a model for the viscosity of canola oil as a function of temperature, as well as an accurate measurement for viscosity at room temperature. It was found that the viscosity between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius can be approximated using an exponential function and that an estimation for viscosity at room temperature was not very difficult to obtain. The precision of this measurement was limited by uncertainty in lab equipment used to measure various quantities as well as the image analysis software we used and the limited frame-rate of our camera.
Jamie Clark On the quantum differentiation of smooth real-valued functions
Calculating the value of Ck ∈ {1, ∞} class of smoothness real-valued function's derivative in point of R+ in radius of convergence of its Taylor polynomial (or series), applying an analog of Newton's binomial theorem and q-difference operator. (P,q)-power difference introduced in section 5. Additionally, by means of Newton's interpolation formula, the discrete analog of Taylor series, interpolation using q-difference and p,q-power difference is shown.
