1. Tran, Thi-Giang. The Contrastive Predicate Construction in Vietnamese.

Degree: Master, Foreign Language and Literature, 2012, NSYSU

This thesis investigates the contrastive predicate construction in Vietnamese under the Minimalist Program (Chomsky, 1995). As an instance of the predicate doubling constructions, it contains two copies of a predicate built around the topic marker thì, in which the one preceding thì is a contrastive topic. It is shown that the relation between the two copies of the predicate is formed by A-bar movement. On the one hand, the dependency between the topic and the lower predicate is unbounded, and can cross a number of finite clauses. On the other hand, their dependency is island sensitive. In addition, the two copies of the predicate are required to be morphologically identical. These pieces of evidence suggest that the two copies of the predicate are links of a movement chain which exceptionally allows thephonetic realization of more than one chain link. In this construction, the two copies of the predicate are obligatorily pronounced because they are associated with specific phonological requirements. Not pronouncing either one of them would lead to the phonological crash. As for the higher predicate or the topic, its phonetic realization is triggered by the [Top] feature of the TopP whose the head is occupied by the topic marker thì. The lower copy, on the other hand, is forced to be pronounced due to the focus feature that it is associated with. This focus feature is derived from the semantic content that the construction conveys. It is argued that of the two copies of the predicate in this construction, the higher one which is the topic provides given information, while the lower copy, in contrast, expresses new information, not given in the context; thus must receive a focus reading and be spelled out. Accordingly, both the two copies are phonetically realized. This present study is the first to study the contrastive predicate construction, an instance of predicate doubling constructions, in Vietnamese. In the process of analysis, some aspects of Vietnamese grammar are introduced to the readers. Theoretically, this study provides a strong empirical support for the copy theory of movement in which copies of a movement are phonetically realized. To some extent, it has made some contributions to the theory of grammar. Advisors/Committee Members: Chen-Sheng Liu (chair), Shu-ing Shyu (committee member), Ting-chi Wei (chair).

2. Cai, Yuanqing. Theta representations on covering groups.

Degree: PhD, Mathematics, 2017, Boston College

Kazhdan and Patterson constructed generalized theta representations on covers of general linear groups as multi-residues of the Borel Eisenstein series. For the double covers, these representations and their (degenerate-type) unique models were used by Bump and Ginzburg in the Rankin-Selberg constructions of the symmetric square L-functions for GL(r). In this thesis, we study two other types of models that the theta representations may support. We first discuss semi-Whittaker models, which generalize the models used in the work of Bump and Ginzburg. Secondly, we determine the unipotent orbits attached to theta functions, in the sense of Ginzburg. We also determine the covers for which these models are unique. We also describe briefly some applications of these unique models in Rankin-Selberg integrals for covering groups. Advisors/Committee Members: Solomon Friedberg (Thesis advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: covering group; doubling construction; Fourier coefficient; semi-Whittaker coefficient; Theta representation; unipotent orbit

3. Luiz EfigÃnio da Silva Filho. CÃnicas : apreciando uma obra-prima da matemÃtica.

Neste trabalho abordaremos alguns assuntos relacionados Ãs SeÃÃes CÃnicas: elipse, parÃbola e hipÃrbole. O trabalho està dividido em cinco capÃtulos: IntroduÃÃo; Origem das CÃnicas; EquaÃÃes das CÃnicas; Propriedades de ReflexÃo das CÃnicas; Construindo CÃnicas. No segundo capÃtulo, falaremos sobre o problema da duplicaÃÃo do cubo que, segundo a HistÃria da MatemÃtica, deu origem as cÃnicas e citaremos alguns matemÃticos cujos trabalhos contribuÃram para o desenvolvimento do estudo dessas curvas. No terceiro capÃtulo, estudaremos as equaÃÃes cartesianas das cÃnicas, bem como as suas representaÃÃes grÃficas e os principais elementos da cada cÃnica. No quarto capÃtulo, apresentaremos as propriedades de reflexÃo das cÃnicas e algumas aplicaÃÃes muito interessantes dessas propriedades. No Ãltimo capÃtulo, demonstraremos alguns mÃtodos para construir cÃnicas e em seguida faremos essas construÃÃes na prÃtica atravÃs de materiais concretos e por meio de um programa de Geometria DinÃmica, chamado Geogebra.

In this paper we discuss some issues related to Conic Sections: ellipse, parabola and hyperbole. The work is divided into five chapters: Introduction; Origin of Conic Sections; Equations of Conic Sections; Reflection Properties of Conic Sections; Building Conic Sections. In the second chapter, weâll talk about doubling the cube problem that, according to the History of Mathematics, originated the conic sections and talk about some mathematicians whose work contributed to the study of these curves. In the third chapter, we will study the Cartesian equations of conic sections, as well as their graphical representations and the main elements of each curve. In the fourth chapter, we presented the reflection properties of conic sections and some very interesting applications of these properties. In the last chapter, we will show some methods to construct conic sections and then we will make these constructs in practice through concrete materials and through a dynamic geometry program, called Geogebra.
