  • Gillispie, Lyman (2014-05)
    Temperature plays an important role in the dynamics of large flowing ice masses like glaciers and ice sheets. Because of this role many models for ice sheets model temperature in some form. One type of model for polythermal ...

    Latent tree models are tree structured graphical models where some random variables are observable while others are latent. These models are used to model data in many areas, such as bioinformatics, phylogenetics, computer ...
  • Layer, Mark (2014-05)
    In this thesis we develop an intuitive process of encoding any phylogenetic tree and its associated tree-distance matrix as a collection of points in Euclidean space. Using this encoding, we find that information about the ...
  • Dissanayake, Ranjan (2018-05)
    In this simulation study we examined the reliability of three phylogenetic reconstruction techniques in a long branch attraction (LBA) situation: Maximum Parsimony (M P), Neighbor Joining (NJ), and Maximum Likelihood. Data ...
  • Dajles, Andres (2016-05)
    It is known that the STAR and USTAR algorithms are statistically consistent techniques used to infer species tree topologies from a large set of gene trees. However, if the set of gene trees is small, the accuracy of STAR ...
  • Baños Cervantes, Hector Daniel (2018-12)
    The Multispecies coalescent model (MSC) is increasingly used in phylogenetics to describe the formation of gene trees (depicting the direct ancestral relationships of sampled lineages) within species trees (depicting the ...
  • Warren, Samantha (2016-05)
    The vertex arboricity of a graph is the minimum number of colors needed to color the vertices so that the subgraph induced by each color class is a forest. In other words, the vertex arboricity of a graph is the fewest ...
