    • Certain properties of the essential spectra in Banach spaces 

      Muhati, L. N.; Bonyo, J. O.; Agure, J. O. (Strathmore University, 2017)
      Let X be an arbitrary Banach space, and L (X) be the set of all bounded linear operators on X. We apply closed range theorem to determine some duality properties of the essential spectrum on L(X). Specifically, we introduce ...
    • Finite rings with homocyclic $p-$groups as Sylow $p$-subgroups of the group of units 

      Chikunji, Chiteng'A John (Strathmore University, 2017)
      In 1960, Laszlo Fuchs posed, among other problems, the following: characterize the groups which are the groups of all units in a commutative and associative ring with identity. Though this problem still remains open, ...
    • On joint essential maximal numerical ranges 

      Omoke, Priscah Mogotu (Strathmore University, 2017)
      The study of numerical range of an operator has been an area of intense research. The motivation for the development arose from the classical theory of quadratic forms. It forms a very important aspect in functional analysis, ...
    • On a-self-adjoint, a-unitary opeators and quasiaffinities 

      Sitati, Isaiah (Strathmore University, 2017)
