Special issue on algebra and computational algebraic geometry
(Albanian J. Math., 200712)Algebraic geometry is one of the main branches of modern mathematics with roots from classical Italian geometers. Its modern flavor started with Grothendieck and continued with many illustrious algebraic geometers of the ... 
Thetanulls of cyclic curves of small genus
(Albanian J. Math., 20071215)We study relations among the classical thetanulls of cyclic curves, namely curves $\X$ (of genus $g(\X )>1$ ) with an automorphism $\s$ such that $\s$ generates a normal subgroup of the group $G$ of automorphisms, and $g ...

Rational points in the moduli space of genus two
(Contemporary Mathematics, 2018)We build a database of genus 2 curves defined over the field of rationals. 
Some open problems in computational algebraic geometry.
(Albanian J. Math., 20071215)The development of computational techniques in the last decade has made possible to attack some classical problems of algebraic geometry from a computational viewpoint. In this survey, we briefly describe some open ... 
Curves of genus 2 with (n, n)decomposable Jacobians
(Journal of Symbolic Computation, 200105)Let C be a curve of genus 2 and ψ1: C − → E 1 a map of degree n, from C to an elliptic curveE1 , both curves defined over C. This map induces a degree n map φ1:P1 − → P 1 which we call a Frey–Kani covering. We determine ... 
On generalized superelliptic Riemann surfaces
(eprint arXiv:1609.09576, 20161101)A closed Riemann surface X, of genus g ≥ 2, is called a generalized superelliptic curve of level n ≥ 2 if it admits an order n conformal automorphism τ so that X/hτihas genus zero and τ is central in Aut(X); the cyclic ... 
On the automorphism groups of some AGcodes based on C_{a,b} curves
(20060115)We study Ca,b curves and their applications to coding theory. Recently, Joyner and Ksir have suggested a decoding algorithm based on the automorphisms of the code. We show how Ca,b curves can be used to construct MDS ... 
Awareness and Attitudes about Open Access Publishing: A Glance at Generational Differences
(2014)INTRODUCTION OA publishing is now solidly established as a publishing model. This study examines current faculty members understanding of and perceptions of OA publishing, focusing on demographic data that divide faculty ... 
Scholarly Communications Competencies: Open Access Training for Librarians
(2015)Purpose The purpose of this article is to describe one example of an academic library using existing internal expertise and targeted events to provide training for liaison librarians in support of new scholarly communication ... 
Isogenous elliptic subcovers of genus two curves
(20171102)We prove that for $N=2,3, 5, 7$ there are only finitely many genus two curves $\X$ (up to isomorphism) defined over $\Q$ with $(2, 2)$split Jacobian and $\Aut (\X)\iso V_4$, such that their elliptic subcovers are ... 
Selfinversive polynomials, curves, and codes
(American Mathematical Society, 20160305)We study connections between selfinversive and selfreciprocal polynomials, reduction theory of binary forms, minimal models of curves, and formally selfdual codes 
Teacher Characteristics and Effective Implementation of the Accelerated Reader program, as reported by Teachers of African American students
How are teacher characteristics related to teaching practices in reading instruction? Melton, Smothers, Anderson, Fulton, Replogue, & Thomas (2004) maintained teachers are the most powerful dynamic in the classroom. African ... 
Using Engagement with Instructor Feedback to Nurture FirstYear Writing Students’ SelfEfficacy
Many students enter college with low selfperceptions about their writing skills. Research indicates that firstyear writing instructors typically rely on the semiselfregulated steps of the writing process to help students ... 
THE IMPACT OF FACETOFACE VERSUS ONLINE PEER REVIEW ON STUDENTS' WRITING ACHIEVEMENT
This study examines the impact of type of peer review first year college students participated in, either facetoface (F2F) or online (OL) and its effect on students' writing achievement. Using a twoway repeated measures ... 
Ditch the textbook  Save your students' money adopt an open textbook
(20171027)Learn how locate, use and create OER’s for your courses. Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching, learning resources released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others. 
Open Access Cafe: Why Open Access Matters
(20171026)Learn about open access publishing and why it matters to research and scholarship. Join in the panel discussion with faculty publishing in OA journals. Panel discussion with Valerie PalmerMehta, Professor of Communication; ... 
Mësimdhënia e matematikës nëpërmjet problemeve klasike
(Albanian J. Math., 20161203)In this paper we discuss how teaching of mathematics for middle school and high school students can be improved dramatically when motivation of concepts and ideas is done through the classical problems and the history of ...

Combinatorial Algorithm for Quadratic Programs with Laplacian Structure
(Utilitas Mathematica, 2016)An algorithm is presented that uses a mostly combinatorial approach to solve a family of convex quadratic programs over box constraints. It is proved that for convex programs with the required structure, the ...
