Epidemic Potential for Malaria in Epidemiological Zones in Kenya
(University of Nairobi, 2012)
Malaria is a vector-borne disease which annually results in over one million deaths and five hundred million clinical episodes, most of which occur in sub-Sahara Africa. Since the disease is influenced by climate factors, ...
Using Markov Chains to Estimate the Cost Effect of Free Primary Education in Kenya
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 ...
Time-series modeling of returns from the NSE 20-share index: An empirical study of the impact of political climate on market volatility
A time series analysis of the Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE) 20-Share 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 ...
Duality, Forecasting and Selection of Autoregressive Moving Average Models
(University of Nairobi., 2002)
Based on both duality in time between time series processes and lag transformation, we define duality in causality, invertibility for mixed Autoregressive moving average ARMA(p,q) models. We construct expressions, in ...
Curvature tensors' and their relativistic significance
In this paper we have defined the Curvature tensor and elaborated its various physical and geometric properties.
Mathematical Models For Human And Baboon Brain Parameters
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. Inter-species values were also ...
Application Of Sperner’s Lemma In Fair Division
In this paper, we describe the approximate envy-free 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
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 ...
