In this report, we will look at the connection between the Fibonacci and Euler numbers. By using a combinatorial argument including the Fibonacci and Euler numbers, we will prove our main theorem:  F<sub>n</sub>·E<sub>n</sub> ≥ n! From the main theorem and the asymptotics of these numbers, we will conclude that π ≤ 2ϕ. We...

In dit verslag wordt het gedrag van een dief die huizen besteelt wiskundig bekeken. Het dievenspel is de aanleiding van dit verslag. In dit spel bepaalt een dief zijn optimale strategie voor het bestelen van één huis uit verschillende huizen met verschillende waarden. Daarnaast is er een agent die op zoek is naar zijn optimale strategie om de...

In this thesis we study the optimal role assignment in jury voting. Jurors have to decide between two states of nature. Jurors cannot directly observe the state of nature, but only a noisy signal, that is correlated with the true state of nature. Some jurors are better than the other, and higher ability jurors receive signals that more likely...

This thesis deals with pricing options on natural gas under a regime-switching model. First of all, a regime-switching model for natural gas is considered. Hereafter, historical gasdata are examined to find a model which fits the data. Next, a system of PDE's is derived in order to price an option under the regime-switching model. Finally,...

This thesis was a combined project of the CWI (the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands) and the NLR (National Aerospace Laboratory of the Netherlands). In this thesis we examine noise pollution around airports. Given an airport we will consider the problem maximizing the number of flights, while...

How can you define automatic maps on the Gaussian integers? The two key components of an automatic map are an automaton, and a numeration system that represents every Gaussian integer at least once. We start by giving a brief introduction to automata and language theory, and go on to establish the existence of a numeration system for the...

Throughout the history of the western world a constant struggle has been taking place between governments and terrorist organisations. Game theory has proven helpful in enhancing our understanding of struggles between two players with opposing interests. The September 11 attacks on the USA in 2001 marked a profound strategic shift in the...

In this document, the proof of the existence of an infinite prime flow, by showing that a Proximal Orbit Dense flow is prime, is examined. This proof has been given by Furstenberg, Keynes and Shapiro in the year 1973. This document investigates this proof thoroughly, as it is quite intricate and it requires a proficient amount of theory. As a...

In dit werk hebben we drie verschillende bewerkingen op automatische rijen onderzocht en vastgesteld of we kunnen garanderen dat de resulterende rij automatisch blijft. In het algemeen is het antwoord hierop voor alle drie negatief, maar voor elk zijn er gevallen te onderscheiden met een positief antwoord. De bewerkingen in kwestie zijn het...

Hoewel James Yorke niet de eerste was die het verschijnsel wat we nu kennen als chaos waarnam, was hij wel degene die het de naam chaos gaf. Yorke kreeg in 1972 het artikel "De- terministic Nonperiodic ow"van een collega. In dit stuk beschreef de meteoroloog Edward Lorenz een simpel systeem van vergelijkingen, gebaseerd op vloeistof dynamica met...

We geven een uitleg, een bewijs en toepassingen van de Afbeeldingsstelling van Riemann. Dit passen we toe op het zogenaamde prinses en monsterspel. We spelen het spel op de eenheidsschijf, waarna we het gebied aan de hand van de Afbeeldinsstelling van Riemann transformeren naar een polygon. Hiervoor gebruiken we de Cayley transformatie en de...

The equivalence of streams under transducers is investigated, as introduced by Klop 2011. In the process, some morphic properties of the Toeplitz words as first described by Keane are discovered.

Consider the following guessing game: Lucy thinks of a number that is in between 0 and 100 and James tries to guess it as fast as possible. Lucy says ’Higher’ when the guess is too low and she says ’Lower’ when the guess is too high. A good strategy for James is tossing 100 fair coins where the first guess is equal to the number of coins that...

We investigate an old number-theoretical problem by Mahler. Using beta-expansions and p-adic valuations we obtain some new results. An important extension on a theorem on periodicity concerning expansions with algebraic base is proven.

Rendezvous problems and search games (with two players) are related problems. In a rendezvous problem the players like to meet as soon as possible, while in a search game one of them tries to avoid the meeting as long as possible. So in a rendezvous problem the players have a common interest and in a search game the players have conflicting...
