Multipliers on Lipschitz-Types Spaces of a Tree
Abstract: We investigate the multiplication operators between the Lipschitz space and weighted Lipschitz space on an infinite tree. These spaces are the discrete analogue to the Bloch space and weighted Bloch space on the unit disk, respectively. We characterize boundedness and compactness, and establish estimates on the operator norm and essential norm for multiplication operators on and between these spaces. We also study the multiplication operators between these spaces and the space of bounded functions on an infinite tree. Lastly we study the isometric multiplication operators on and between these spaces. This is joint work with Flavia Colonna (George Mason University) and Glenn R. Easley (System Planning Corporation). This talk will be accessible to a general audience.

Supereulerian Graphs and Matchings
Abstract: A graph G is called supereulerian if G has a spanning Eulerian subgraph. Let α'(G) be the maximum number of independent edges in the graph G. In this talk, we will show that if G is a 2-edge-connected simple graph and α'(G) ≤ 2, then G is supereulerian if and only if G is not K2,t for some odd number t.

Where Have All the Postmen Gone?
Abstract: The Post Office is currently facing a multi-billion dollar budget crisis. With the advances and dependence on paperless communication, the Post Office has seen dramatic decreases in volume in recent years. With already operating from a deficit and expected future loses in volume, what can the Post Office do to get back on its feet? Or is it perhaps already beyond repair? We took a look at a lot of the current figures and applied several regression techniques to predict what the future of the Post Office might look like. We also applied in depth sensitivity analysis to try and get an idea of the potential accuracy of our results, and which factors seem to be the most important heading forward.

An Integrative Framework of Service Convenience, Service Consumption Experience, and Relational Exchange in Electronic Mediated Environment (EME)
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to provide insights into consumers’ perception of service convenience and services consumption experience (conceptualized as two second-order formative constructs) and their potential influence on the development of long-term exchange relationship among consumers and service providers in the context of E-Services or broadly Services in the Electronic Meditated Environment (EME). A comprehensive research framework is developed. Analyses of data from 1,250 U.S. consumers, with at least six months or more experience in consuming services in EME, reveal that service convenience and service consumption experience significantly influence consumers’ long term relationship development with service providers in EME. Suggestions for future research and implications are discussed.
