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 ... 
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 ... 
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. 
Application of GARCH to Model the KESIUS$ Foreign Exchange Rates Returns
(150313)The USA dollar (US$) is the most prominent currency around the world for transactions and also as foreign reserves for many Central Banks, for example in 2006, Central Bank of Kenya had 52% of its foreign reserves in US ... 
Application Of Sperner’s Lemma In Fair Division
(230613)In this paper, we describe the approximate envyfree division using a mathematical technique from "game theory"; with help of Sperner’s lemma. The examples of land distribution in families and other heterogeneous resources ... 
Electromagnetic Tensor Field Of First And Second Class
(230613)The author and R.S. Mishra established the identities in Nijenhuis tensor for first, second and third class of electromagnetic tensor fields. The identities for first class were non zero. In this paper I have obtained the ... 
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 ... 
Curvature tensors' and their relativistic significance
(1970)In this paper we have defined the Curvature tensor and elaborated its various physical and geometric properties. 
Curvature tensors and their relativistic significance (II)
(1970)In this paper we have defined the curvature tensors and their properties are studied. 
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 ...
