A framework for monitoring progress and planning teaching towards the effective use of computer algebra systems

Based on a review of the literature and from the authors' own teaching experience, the framework identifies the main characteristics of students' interactions with CAS technology and how these may be used to monitor students' developing use of CAS; from this, the framework may be used to plan teaching in order to gain greater benefit from the availability of CAS. Four case studies describing students' development over a semester are reported. These demonstrate a variety of combinations of technical competencies and personal attributes. They indicate the importance of both the technical and personal aspects but suggest that negative attitudes rather than technical difficulties can limit the effective use of CAS.

Any well designed recovery strategy has to take into account the different resilience requirements of the single traffic flows in order to avoid excessive usage of bandwidth for standby links. Faced with multiple recovery options, an internet service provider (ISP) must decide which flows to protect to what extent against networks. Traditional techniques and models used to determine the availability and failure rates of telecommunications networks are based on classic failure models such as Mean-time between failure and Mean-time between service outage predictors. Network failures occur for many different reasons and occur in many different forms. These classic models only assume that the failure is caused by a hardware component of the network. With the widespread deployment of Internet technologies other factors that cause or contribute to failure in a telecommunications network must be explored. Two additional failure modes to existing published failure models, failure from Denial of Service attacks, and failures due to catastrophic events have been identified and defined along with an initial outline of a generalized prediction model based on Dynamic System Theory. Discussion is done on the effects of failures and survivability issues in network failures and how to overcome failures in IT based telecommunication network**Description:**E1**Description:**2003002567

Magic and antimagic labeling of graphs

**Authors:**Sugeng, Kiki Ariyanti**Date:**2005**Type:**Text , Thesis , PhD**Full Text:****Description:**"A bijection mapping that assigns natural numbers to vertices and/or edges of a graph is called a labeling. In this thesis, we consider graph labelings that have weights associated with each edge and/or vertex. If all the vertex weights (respectively, edge weights) have the same value then the labeling is called magic. If the weight is different for every vertex (respectively, every edge) then we called the labeling antimagic. In this thesis we introduce some variations of magic and antimagic labelings and discuss their properties and provide corresponding labeling schemes. There are two main parts in this thesis. One main part is on vertex labeling and the other main part is on edge labeling."**Description:**Doctor of Philosophy

Characterization of eccentric digraphs

**Authors:**Gimbert, Joan , Lopez, Nacho , Miller, Mirka , Ryan, Joe**Date:**2006**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Discrete Mathematics Vol. 306, no. 2 (2006), p. 210-219**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**The eccentric digraph ED(G) of a digraph G represents the binary relation, defined on the vertex set of G, of being 'eccentric'; that is, there is an arc from u to v in ED(G) if and only if v is at maximum distance from u in G. A digraph G is said to be eccentric if there exists a digraph H such that G=ED(H). This paper is devoted to the study of the following two questions: what digraphs are eccentric and when the relation of being eccentric is symmetric. We present a characterization of eccentric digraphs, which in the undirected case says that a graph G is eccentric iff its complement graph G is either self-centered of radius two or it is the union of complete graphs. As a consequence, we obtain that all trees except those with diameter 3 are eccentric digraphs. We also determine when ED(G) is symmetric in the cases when G is a graph or a digraph that is not strongly connected. Crown Copyright © 2006 Published by Elsevier B.V.

A vertex-magic total labeling is an assignment of the integers 1, 2, ..., n + e to the vertices and the edges of G, so that at each vertex, the vertex label and the labels on the edges incident at that vertex, add to a fixed constant, called the magic number of G. Such a labeling is a-vertex consecutive magic if the set of the labels of the vertices is { a + 1, a + 2, ..., a + n }, and is b-edge consecutive magic if the set of labels of the edges is { b + 1, b + 2, ..., b + e }.

A vertex-magic total labeling is a bijection λ from V∪E to the set of consecutive integers {1,2,...,n+e} with the property that for every v∈V, λ(v)+∑w∈N(v)λ(vw)=h for some constant h. Such a labeling is strong if λ(V)={1,2,...,n}. In this paper, we prove first that the minimum degree of a strongly vertex-magic graph is at least two. Next, we show that if 2e≥10n2-6n+1, then the minimum degree of a strongly vertex-magic graph is at least three. Further, we obtain upper and lower bounds of any vertex degree in terms of n and e. As a consequence we show that a strongly vertex-magic graph is maximally edge-connected and hamiltonian if the number of edges is large enough. Finally, we prove that semi-regular bipartite graphs are not strongly vertex-magic graphs, and we provide strongly vertex-magic total labeling of certain families of circulant graphs. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.

If G is an almost Moore digraph, then for each vertex u ∈ V (G) there exists a vertex v ∈ V (G), called repeat of u and denoted by r (u) = v, such that there are two walks of length ≤ k from u to v. The smallest positive integer p such that the composition rp (u) = u is called the order of u. If the order of u is 1 then u is called a selfrepeat. It is known that if G is an almost Moore digraph of diameter k ≥ 3 then G contains exactly k selfrepeats or none. In this paper, we propose an exact formula for the number of all vertex orders in an almost Moore digraph G containing selfrepeats, based on the vertex orders of the out-neighbours of any selfrepeat vertex. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
