• Drinfeld modules and their application to factor polynomials 

      Randrianarisoa, Tovohery Hajatiana (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Major works done in Function Field Arithmetic show a strong analogy between the ring of integers Z and the ring of polynomials over a nite eld Fq[T]. While an algorithm has been discovered to factor ...
    • On subnormal subgroups in factorized groups 

      Oberholzer, Ria M (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In this thesis we give a survey of research done on a problem on subnormal subgroups in factorized groups G = AB, where A and B are two subgroups of G with H a subgroup of A n B which is subnormal in ...
    • On the analysis of refinable functions with respect to mask factorisation, regularity and corresponding subdivision convergence 

      De Wet, Wouter de Vos (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
      We study refinable functions where the dilation factor is not always assumed to be 2. In our investigation, the role of convolutions and refinable step functions is emphasized as a framework for understanding various ...
    • Studies on factoring polynomials over global fields 

      Benzaoui, Ilhem (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-12)
      In this thesis, we surveyed the most important methods for factorization of polynomials over a global field, focusing on their strengths and showing their most striking disadvantages. The algorithms we have selected are ...
