A study on numerical range of operators in a hilbert space
(Kenyatta University, 1987) 
Statistical analysis of neonatal mortality at Pumwani maternity Hospital Nairobi County
(Kenyatta University, 2014)Despite numerous interventions and action plans, very little evidence exists on why the infant and child mortality rates are increasing in Kenya. Most studies have focused on infant and child mortality putting neonatal ... 
Statistical analysis of the determinants of maternal mortality and impact of voucher for health in Kisumu subcounty, Kenya
(Kenyatta University, 2014)Globally in 2010, about 800 women died daily due to complications of pregnancy and child birth (WHO, 2010). Out of the 800 deaths, 440 deaths occurred in subSaharan Africa, 230 in Southern Asia and only five in highincome ... 
Spatial temporal analysis of the distribution of pediatric tuberculosis patterns in Kenya
(20140908)Tuberculosis is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Kenya is among the 22 high burden countries that contribute 80% of the global burden and is ranked number 15 worldwide while in Africa, it is ranked ... 
Statistical Assessment of the Impact of Parasitological Diagnosis of Malaria in Febrile Children Aged under 5 Years in Kisumu County
(20140820)In malaria endemic areas, fever is commonly caused by malaria infection but it may be a manifestation of several childhood diseases for example bacterial and viral illnesses. Malaria microscopy is the gold standard for ... 
Finding the Distribution of a Random Variable from its Moment Function
(2000)Consider the problem of r .~/ randomly distributed points in a unit nball and the convex hull created by these points. Let ~II be r! times the rcontent of an rsimplex whose P vertices are in the interior and r I / p ... 
Simulating Natural Turbulent Convection Fluid Flow in an Enclosure the TwoEquation Turbulent Models

Relationship between mathematical language and students' performance in mathematics in public secondary schools in Nairobi province, Kenya
(20121101)The purpose of this study was to establish the relationship between mathematical language and students' performance in mathematics. In addition to the main purpose, the study sought to find the problems experienced by ... 
Mathematics across the curriculum: a case study of the applications of mathematics in selected Kenyan secondary school subjects
(20120608)The objectives of this research were to establish the nature of the mathematical concepts that find application in other subjects studied in secondary schools, the effects this applied mathematics has on the elarning and ... 
A study of the attitudes of preservice teachers towards mathematics in some primary teachers colleges
(20120518)This study investigated the attitudes of preservice teachers towards mathematics in some primary teachers' colleges. The study examined the attitudes of the trainees based on a number of variables which included sex of ... 
Aspects of controllability of autonomous systems in locally convex topological spaces
(20120516)In this project, two theorems in (6) on controllability of autonomous systems defined with the help of ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) in finite dimensional vector spaces is genralized to infinite dimensional locally ... 
Multivariate process contol
(20120504)It is important that a consumer gets the quality of a product she/he wants. As a consequence, the quality of a finished product should be controlled to a desire level. This is done through statistical quality control.We ... 
Residuals influence and weighting in estimation of regression parameters
(20120420)We consider analysis and fitting models of the regression data in the fields, which exhibit nonconstant variances, which are referred to as regression models. We focus on various approaches and procedures used in estimating ... 
Nonparametric regression to finite population estimation.
(20120418)Nonparametric regression is used here to estimate the finite population mean. The variance of the derived estimate is obtained and procedures for its estimation suggested. The appropriateness of the variance estimators is ...

Analysis of seasonal time series with missing observations
(20120411)In the past, Kenya's Tourist data has been analysed by among others, Mutiso (1982) who carried out Spectral Analysis to the monthly data for a series covering 10 years (19711980). Mutiso came up with general conclusion ... 
Incorporation of convariates in the dose response model
(20120411)In the study of dose response curves, there are two main assumptions that are normally made. First, we assume that the dose response data can be modeled using linear models (linear probability models), and secondly we ... 
Turbulent natural convection in a rectangular enclosure

Weibull model for dose response data and akaike information criterion for model selection
(20120228)Statistical linear models are used to study dose response models in the bioassay. These have given rise to many statistical problems since the dose response data do not follow linear model. This has led to the use of ... 
Some contributions on the use of auxiliary information in sample surveys.
(20120228)In this project, we assume that we have a population from which a sample is taken and that not all sample units are observed... It is also assumed that auxiliary information is available for all units in the population. ...
