Coding Theory - Error correcting codes: A special look at the Reed-Muller Codes
ABSTRACT:The purpose of my presentation is to focus on linear codes and conclude with a special look at a family of codes (the Reed-Muller Codes) defined recursively with interesting properties and easy code decoding algorithms.

An Examination of the K0 Groups of the Leavitt Path Algebras of some Cayley Graphs
Graphs of Leavitt Path Algebras: A natural equivalence relation on finite acyclic directed graphs arises from the graded isomorphisms between finite dimensional Leavitt path algebras. We will identify graph-theoretic properties for which each equivalence class contains a unique possessing these properties.

Gravitational Effects on Blood Flow Velocity: How fast does blood flow through the arteries with each heart beat? In this presentation I will look at Womersley flow, a classical approach to calculating blood flow velocity. This approach assumes flow through a rigid tube, and uses concepts from fluid mechanics to model the flow velocity. Bessel functions and the Navier-Stokes equations are used in the model, and Fourier series are used to model the pressure gradient function. I will also examine an extension to the model to include gravitational effects on blood flow. Results will be given for various gravitational fields and for different animals.
