1. Heap, Daniel E. Identifying job embeddedness characteristics in r??sum??s: can human resources professionals identify differences?.

Degree: MA, Psychology (Industrial/Organizational Psychology, 2012, California State University – Sacramento

The purpose of this thesis was to investigate whether human resource professionals could identify job embeddedness characteristics in applicant r??sum??s and subsequently rate the r??sum??s with these characteristics more favorably. Participants rated the hireability of r??sum??s via electronic survey for a specific job description. Participants also completed a self-assessment personality inventory and evaluated inferred traits on r??sum??s to determine if there may be a similar-to-me effect in the ratings. The study consisted of 162 participants from 35 states, 95 female and 25 male with an average age of 45 and 14.8 years in the HR industry. Results indicated that HR Professionals rated r??sum??s with more job embeddedness characteristics more favorably; however there was no support for a similar-to-me effect based on inferred personality characteristics in the r??sum??s. These results further support the utility of the theory of job embeddedness. Advisors/Committee Members: Hurtz, Gregory Matthew.

2. Powell, Kevin James. Topics in Analytic Number Theory.

Degree: MS, 2009, Brigham Young University

The thesis is in two parts. The first part is the paper “The Distribution of k-free integers” that my advisor, Dr. Roger Baker, and I submitted in February 2009. The reader will note that I have inserted additional commentary and explanations which appear in smaller text. Dr. Baker and I improved the asymptotic formula for the number of k-free integers less than x by taking advantage of exponential sum techniques developed since the 1980's. Both of us made substantial contributions to the paper. I discovered the exponent in the error term for the cases k=3,4, and worked the case k=3 completely. Dr. Baker corrected my work for k=4 and proved the result for k=5. He then generalized our work into the paper as it now stands. We also discussed and both contributed to parts of section 3 on bounds for exponential sums. The second part represents my own work guided by my advisor. I study the zeros of derivatives of Dirichlet L-functions. The first theorem gives an analog for a result of Speiser on the zeros of ζ'(s). He proved that RH is equivalent to the hypothesis that ζ'(s) has no zeros with real part strictly between 0 and ½. The last two theorems discuss zero-free regions to the left and right for L(k)(s,χ).
