Linear Estimation Of Standard Deviation Of Logistic Distribution: Theory And Algorithm
(060713)The paper presents a theoretical method based on order statistics and a FORTRAN program for computing the variance and relative efficiencies of the standard deviation of the logistic population with respect to the CramerRao ... 
Mathematical Models For Human And Baboon Brain Parameters
(2013)In this paper linear measurements from ten human and ten baboon brains were used to predict various values for human and baboon brain and body parameters, through multiple regression models. Interspecies values were also ... 
Modeling a Hierarchical System with a Single Absorbing State
(060713)The paper describes a Markov Chain transition model in which students in an education system, be they graduates or dropouts, are grouped together into a single absorbing state.

Solution of transonic flows by an integrodifferential equation method
(University of Nairobi.School of Mathematics, 1978)Solutions of steady transonic flow past a twodimensional airfoil are obtained from a singular integrodifferential equation which involves a tangential derivative of the perturbation velocity potential. Subcritical flows ... 
Timeseries modeling of returns from the NSE 20share index: An empirical study of the impact of political climate on market volatility
(240613)A time series analysis of the Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) 20Share index from January 1998 to March 2007 is provided. A comparison of the daily rates of return and volatilities for periods immediately preceding and following ... 
Use Of Polynomial Fit To Predict Seasonal Rainfall In Nairobi, Kenya
(060713)In investigating Kenya rainfall variability and its relationship to other climatic elements it has become imperative to analyze the irregularly distributed rainfall events in time. To meet this requirement, this study used ... 
Using Markov Chains to Estimate the Cost Effect of Free Primary Education in Kenya
(2013)In the year 2003 the Kenyan government changed its education policy from cost sharing to free and compulsory primary education. As a result there was an influx of pupils into public primary schools. This policy therefore ...
