Abstract:
In this paper, a singularly perturbed second order ordinary differential equation with a discontinuous convection coefficient arising in chemical reactor theory is considered. A robustlayerresolving numerical method is suggested. An εuniform global error estimate for the numerical solution and also to the numerical derivative are established. Numerical results are provided to illustrate the theoretical results.

Abstract:
Very recently, Kim evaluated some double integrals involving a generalized hypergeometric function _{3}F_{2} with the help of generalization of Edwards's wellknown double integral due to Kim, et al. and generalized classical Watson's summation theorem obtained earlier by Lavoie, et al. In this research paper we evaluate one hundred double integrals involving generalized hypergeometric function _{4}F_{3} in the form of four master formulas (25 each) viz. in the most general form for any integer. Some interesting results have also be obtained as special cases of our main findings.

Abstract:
We show how a modified Hamiltonian proposed by Robert Dorfman [1] to give intuitive sense
to the Pontryagin maximum principle can be extended to easily obtain all
highorder equations of the calculus of variations. This new concept is
particularly efficient to determine the differential equations leading to
the extremals of functionals defined by nuple integrals, while a
traditional approach would require  in some cases repeatedly  an
extension of Green's theorem to nspace.
Our paper is dedicated to the memory of Robert Dorfman (1916  2002).
