Numerical Solutions To Nonlinear Hyperbolic Systems Of Conservation Laws Applied To Traffic Flow Theory Research Report in Mathematics, Number 29, 2020
(university of Nairobi, 2020)In the recent past, the rapid growing number of vehicles on long crowded roads elicited rigorous scienti c research activities in the eld of tra c ow modeling. In this thesis we present and discuss some of the macroscopic ... 
A numerical study of the effects of the roughness length on the mesoscale flow patterns over Kenya
(Department of Meteorology at the university of Nairobi,, 1992)A threedimensional numerical model was used in this study to examine the effects of changes in the surface roughness length on the mesoscale flow patterns over Kenya. Three experiments were performed. The first ... 
Nutrient productivity relationships in tropical Naivasha basin lakes; Kenya
(Department of Botany, Faculty of Science University of Nairobi, 1982)Nutrient availability and seasonal variation have often been cited as the principal factors controlling rates of primary productivity and phytoplankton abundance in tropical African lakes. Very few studies of nutrient ... 
Nutrient relationships in the shallow water of lake naivasha
(Department of botany Faculty of science University of Nairobi, 1980)Nutrient levels in macrophytes and sediment in the shallow water zone were determined nutrient release from sediment , macrophytes in the shallow water zone and the spatial and temporal distribution of nutrients a in ... 
Objectivity and personal involvement in artificial intelligence: An examination of the Turing Test
(2004)The aim of this report is to study what an intelligent system entails. The study focuses on what makes natural intelligent system. This will be important in that it will form a guideline for the construction of ... 
The Occurrence Of Aspergillus Section Flavi In Soil And Maize From Makueni, County, Kenya
(University of NairobiSchool of Biological Sciences, 2013)Maize (Zea mays L.) is the staple food for most households in both urban and rural areas in Kenya and has an estimated annual per capita consumption of about 125 kg per person, which is among the highest in the world. Ear ...

(Department of Zoology, University of Nairobi, 2002) 
Occurrence, mineralogical composition and significance of laterites in Kenya
(University of NairobiGeology, 2011)The study area is Kenya a country in Eastern Africa bordered by Ethiopia to the north, Somalia to the east, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest, with the Indian Ocean running along the ... 
Of Kopovikins Theory
(University of NairobiSchool of mathematics,, 1990)Tde by now classical tlleorem of P.P. Korovkin first appeared in [6] in 1953. It arose from the study of the role of Bernstein polynomials in the proof of the Weei rs trass approximation ... 
Older Adults And Technology Adoption: Investigating The Use Of Online Banking Among The Seniors In Nairobi County
(UoN, 2019)The overall global diffusion of technology into many domains of banking and financial services has accelerated the shift from traditional banking methods to more ICTbased such as Online Banking. Convenience and efficiency ... 
OLR and SST characteristics over Africa during years of deficient and surplus rainfall in East Africa
(Department of Meteorology University of Nairobi, 1994)Accurate rainfall forecasts would greatly improve the quality and quantity of agricultural products and other rain dependent activities, while allowing for the amelioration and integration of the catastrophic socioeconomic ... 
On some application of algebra and geometry in coding theory
(School of mathematics, 201108)The fundamental problem that led to the development of the theory of error correcting codes was that of having a reliable communication over unreliable channels. A commu nication channel can be as simple as the air ... 
On almost similarity and other related equivalence relations of operators in Hilbert spaces
(University of Nairobi, 201607)In this thesis, we study unitary equivalence, similarity, quasisimilarity, almost similarity and metric equivalence of operators acting on separable Hilbert spaces. We also study the Murrayvon Neumann relation of ...
