  • Stochastic average-cost control, with energy-related applications 

    Chernysh, Ksenia (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-09)
    In this thesis we present a new stochastic optimisation model arising from supplyside management of power networks. We provide the exact optimal solution under assumption that the environment is Markovian. For the ...
  • Cosets in inverse semigroups and inverse subsemigroups of finite index 

    AlAli, Amal (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-07)
    The index of a subgroup of a group counts the number of cosets of that subgroup. A subgroup of finite index often shares structural properties with the group, and the existence of a subgroup of finite index with some ...
  • High gauge theory with string 2-groups and higher Poincare lemma 

    Demessie, Getachew Alemu (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-09)
    This thesis is concerned with the mathematical formulations of higher gauge theory. Firstly, we develop a complete description of principal 2-bundles with string 2-group model of Schommer-Pries, which is obtained by ...
  • Mathematical modelling of movement and glioma invasion 

    Eljazi, Radhia (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-10)
    Modelling movement is an important topic in fields ranging from ecology to medicine. In particular, glioma, an often fatal brain tumour is characterised by its diffuse invasion into the surrounding normal brain tissue, ...
  • A trading model and security regime for mobile e-commerce via ad hoc wireless networking 

    Osman, Husna (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-08)
    Ad hoc wireless networking offers mobile computer users the prospect of trading with others in their vicinity anywhere anytime. This thesis explores the potential for developing such trading applications. A notable ...
