Action of Symmetric Group S5 on The Cosets of Some of Its NonMaximal Subgroups
(Kenyatta University, 202007) 
The Action of Symmetry Groups of Platonic Solids on their Respective Vertices
(Kenyatta University, 2020)Platonic solids are 3dimensional regular, convex polyhedrons. Each of the faces are equidistant and equiangular to each other in any of the solids. They derive their name from the ancient Greek philosopher, P lato who ... 
Analysis of flow in regular bend pipe
(20120201)A fluid is a substance that deforms continuously on application of slight shear stress. The study of fluid mechanics deals with motion of fluids and conditions that support or after motion. Fluid mechanics can be divided ...

(Kenyatta University, 201904)This study investigates the effect of heat and mass transfer on Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) nanofluid with thermal radiation and brownian motion over a heated vertical plate. The Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) nanofluid flow ... 
Analysis of Magnetohydrodynamic Stagnation Point Flow Due to a Fluid towards a Convectively Heated Permeable Stretching Sheet
(Kenyatta University, 202010)Stagnationpoint flow of an electrically conducting fluid over a continuously stretching surface in presence of magnetic fields is significant in many industrial processes such as the metallurgy, polymer processing, glass ... 
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 ... 
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 ... 
Bioconvection of a Newtonian Nanofluid Over a Vertical Plate in Presence of Gyrotactic Microorganisms
(Kenyatta University, 201912)Bioconvection induced by gyrotactic microorganisms in a Newtonian nanofluid past a permeable vertical plate is studied. Addition of motile microorganisms to a suspension of nanoparticles in a basefluid enhances mass ... 
Comparison of the performance of estimators in estimation of finite population total
(20120201)In this project we compare the performance of two different estimators of the population total. One estimator is modelbased and the other one is model assisted. We look at modelbased properties of the two estimators. ... 
Derivation of Cycle Index Formulas of Semidirect Product Groups
(Kenyatta University, 201912)The concept of the cycle index formulas of a permutation group was discovered in the year 1937. Since then cycle index formulas of several groups have been studied by di erent scholars. For instance the cycle index of ... 
Determination of the Effects of Applying Variable Pressure Gradient to a Magnetohydrodynamic Fluid Flowing Between Plates with Inclined Magnetic Field
(Kenyatta University, 201811)In this study the effects of applying variable pressure gradient to a MHD fluid flowing between two plates in an inclined magnetic field was carried out. It involved an unsteady hydromagnetic fluid flowing through two ...
