I would like to point out the help that my advisor, Lim Nguyen, has given throughout not
only my education while at the University of Nebraska Lincoln-Omaha, but also for the
help, advice, guidance, ideas, and time that he has give me for this thesis (as well as the
other members of my committee).
Certainly, all the individuals and professors that helped throughout my undergraduate and
graduate career deserve credit for getting me to this point and providing irreplaceable
memories and knowledge that contributed to this thesis.
Lastly, I need to thank my family for supporting me financially and mentally during
college. And to my girlfriend for putting up with the long nights of homework,
simulations, and reports needed to get my graduate degree.
