  • Pairings of Binary reflexive relational structures 

    Chishwashwa, Nyumbu (University of the Western Cape, 2008)
    The main purpose of this thesis is to study the interplay between relational structures and topology , and to portray pairings in terms of some finite poset models and order preserving maps. We show the interrelations ...
  • The paradox of enrichment in predator-prey systems 

    Sogoni, Msimelelo (University of Western Cape, 2020)
    In principle, an enrichment of resources in predator-prey systems show prompts destabilisation of a framework, accordingly, falling trophic communication, a phenomenon known to as the \Paradox of Enrichment" [54]. After ...
  • Pre-service science teachers’ conceptual and procedural difficulties in solving mathematical problems in physical science 

    Iwuanyanwu, Paul Nnanyereugo (University of the Western Cape, 2014)
    Students frequently leave first-year physical science classes with a dual set of physical laws in mind- the equations to be applied to qualitative problems and the entrenched set of concepts, many erroneous, to be applied ...
  • Pricing American style employee stock options having GARCH effects 

    Arotiba, Gbenga Joseph (University of the Western Cape, 2010)
    We investigate some simulation-based approaches for the valuing of the employee stock options. The mathematical models that deal with valuation of such options include the work of Jennergren and Naeslund [L.P Jennergren ...
  • Pricing European options : a model-free approach 

    Nkosi, Siboniso Confrence (University of the Western Cape, 2016)
    This paper focuses on the newly revived interest to model free approach in finance. Instead of postulating some probability measure it emerges in a form of an outer-measure. We review the behavior of a market stock price ...
  • Pricing methods for Asian options 

    Mudzimbabwe, Walter (2010)
    We present various methods of pricing Asian options. The methods include Monte Carlo simulations designed using control and antithetic variates, numerical solution of partial differential equation and using lower bounds.The ...
  • Robust computational methods for two-parameter singular perturbation problems 

    Elago, David (University of the Western Cape, 2010)
    This thesis is concerned with singularly perturbed two-parameter problems. We study a tted nite difference method as applied on two different meshes namely a piecewise mesh (of Shishkin type) and a graded mesh (of Bakhvalov ...
  • Skills, training and support for carers in HIV/AIDS community home-based care: a case study of carers in Chikankata, Zambia 

    Chaava, Thebisa Hamukoma (University of the Western Cape, 2005)
    The high prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Zambia has led to the development of innovative ways of coping with sickness related to this infection. HIV/AIDS home-based care is one such innovation designed in Chikankata Hospital in ...
  • Stochastic modelling in bank management and optimization of bank asset allocation 

    Schalkwyk, Garth Van (2009)
    The Basel Committee published its proposals for a revised capital adequacy framework(the Basel II Capital Accord) in June 2006. One of the main objectives of this framework is to improve the incentives for state-of-the-art ...
  • Strong simplicity of groups and vertex - transitive graphs 

    Fadhal, Emad Alden Sir Alkhatim Abraham (University of the Western Cape, 2010)
    In the course of exploring various symmetries of vertex-transitive graphs, we introduce the concept of quasi-normal subgroups in groups. This is done since the symmetries of vertex-transitive graphs are intimately linked ...
  • A survey of the computer enhanced services of the Outreach Project of UWC developed for grade 12 mathematic learners and a critical appraisal of the MICSEC2000 program. 

    Isaacs, Brian Ernest Leonard (University of the Western Cape, 2005)
    The Outreach Project of the University of the Western Cape has since 1982 through various computer supported services been assisting grade 12 mathematics learners and educators at previously disadvantaged Western Cape high ...
  • Test of the overreaction hypothesis in the South African stock market 

    Itaka, Jose Kumu (University of the Western Cape, 2014)
    This research undertakes to investigate both long-term and short-term investor overreaction on the JSE Limited (JSE) over the period from 1 January 2002 to 31 December 2009. The period covers the restructuring and reform ...
  • Topogenous structures on categories 

    Iragi, Minani (University of the Western Cape, 2016)
    Although the interior operators correspond to a special class of neighbourhood operators, the closure operators are not nicely related to the latter. We introduce and study the notion of topogenous orders on a category ...

  • Transport modelling in the Cape Town Metropolitan Area 

    Munyakazi, Justin Bazimaziki (University of the Western Cape, 2005)
    The use of MEPLAN by the Metropolitan Transport Planning Branch of the Cape Town City Council since 1984 was not successful due to apartheid anomalies. EMME/2 was then introduced in 1991 in replacement of MEPLAN. In this ...
  • Ultrafilters and Compactification 

    Nxumalo, Mbekezeli Sibahle (UWC, 2020)
    In this thesis, we construct the ultrafilter space of a topological space using ultrafilters as points, study some of its properties and describe a method of generating compactifications through the ultrafilter space. As ...
  • Valuation of options for hedging against exchange rate exposure 

    Don, Marlon Junaide (University of the Western Cape, 2019)
    The risk associated with currency exposure is one of the main sources of risk in terms of internationally diversi ed portfolios. Controlling the risk is important for improving the performance of international investments. ...
