Abstract:
In this paper, basic notions of von Neumann algebra and its direct analogues in the realm of groupoids and measure spaces have been considered. By recovering the action of a locally compact Lie group from a crossed product of a von Neumann algebra, other proof of one of a geometric propositions of O'Neil and an extension of it has been proposed. Also, using the advanced exploration of nilmanifolds in measure spaces and their corresponding automorphisms (Lie algebraic derivations) a different proof of an analytic theorem of Gordon and Mao has been attained. These two propositions are of the most important ones for rigidity problems of Riemannian manifolds especially 2step nilmanifolds.

Abstract:
In this paper we calculate some geometric constants for Morrey spaces and small Morrey spaces, namely generalized Von NeumannJordan constant, modified Von NeumannJordan constants, and Zbaganu constant. All these constants measure the uniformly nonsquareness of the spaces. We obtain that their values are the same as the value of Von NeumannJordan constant for Morrey spaces and small Morrey spaces.

Abstract:
This paper considers a combined form of the Sumudu transform with the modified homotopy perturbation method (MHPM) to find approximate and analytical solutions for nonlinear two point boundary value problems. This method is called the modified Sumudu transform homotopy perturbation method (MSTHPM). The suggested technique avoids the roundoff errors and finds the solution without any restrictive assumptions or discretization. We will introduce an appropriate initial approximation and furthermore, the residual error will be canceled in some points of the interval (RECP). Only a first order approximation of MSTHPM will be required, as compared to STHPM, which needs more iterations for the same cases of study. After comparing figures between approximate, MSTHPM, STHPM and numerical solutions, it is found through the solutions we have obtained that they are highly accurate, indicating that the MSTHPM is very effective, simple and can be used to solve other types of nonlinear boundary value problems (BVPs).

Abstract:
Many multiparameter families of congruences (mod p) are found for integer sums of q^{th} powers of the trigonometric functions over various sets of equidistant arguments, where p is any prime factor of q. Those congruences provide sensitive tests for the accuracy of software for evaluating trigonometric functions to high precision.

Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to deal with nonlinear quasilogarithmic operators, which possesses the uniformly bounded commutator property on various interpolation spaces in the sense of BrudnyiKrugljak associated with the quasipower parameter spaces. The duality, and the domain and range spaces of these operators are under consideration. Some known inequalities for the Lebesgue integration spaces and the trace classes are carried over to the noncommutative symmetric spaces of measurable operators affiliated with a semifinite von Neumann algebra.

Expected Utility with Subjective Events

Abstract:
We provide a new theory of expected utility with subjective events modeled by a lattice of projections. This approach allows us to capture the notion of a ``small world'' as a context dependent or local state space embedded into a subjective set of events, the ``grand world''. For each situation the decision makers' subjective ``small world'' reflects the events perceived to be relevant for the act under consideration. The subjective set of events need not be representable by a classical state space. Maintaining preference axioms similar in spirit to the classical axioms, we obtain an expected utility representation which is consistent across local state spaces and separates subjective probability and utility. An added benefit is that this alternative expected utility representation allows for an intuitive distinction between risk and uncertainty.

Abstract:
In 2000, Francini solved the inverse conductivity problem for twicedifferentiable conductivities and permittivities. This solution was considered to be the first approach using Dbar methods with complex conductivities. In 2012, based on Francini's work, Hamilton introduced a reconstruction method of the conductivity distribution with complex values. The method consists of six steps. A voltage potential is applied on the boundary. Solving a DBar equation gives the complex conductivity. In this paper, the stability of the DBar equation is studied via two approximations, t^{exp} and t^{B}, for the scattering transform. The study is based on rewriting the reconstruction method in terms of continuous operators. The conductivity is considered to be non smooth.

Abstract:
We formulate a general theory of decision making based on a lattice of observable events, and we exhibit a large class of representations called the general model. Some of the representations are equivalent to the so called standard model in which observable events are modelled by an algebra of measurable subsets of a state space, while others are not compatible with such a description. We show that the general model collapses to the standard model, if and only if an additional axiom is satisfied. We argue that this axiom is not very natural and thus assert that the standard model may not be general enough to model all relevant phenomena in economics. Using the general model we are (as opposed to Schmeidler [16]) able to rationalize Ellsberg's paradox without the introduction of nonadditive measures.

Abstract:
By some analysis of the neutral operator and an application of the fixedpoint index theorem, we obtain sufficient conditions for the existence, multiplicity and nonexistence of periodic solutions to a secondorder differential equation with the prescribed neutral operator, which improve and extend some recent results of LuGe, WuWang, and Zhang. An example is given to illustrate our results. Moreover, the analysis of the generalized neutral operator will be helpful for other types of differential equations.

Abstract:
In this paper we prove the following theorem: Let X be a nonempty compact convex set in a locally convex Hausdorff topological vector space, D be the set of its extremal points and F,T: X―◦X two Kakutani maps; if for each nonempty finite subset A of D and for any x ∈ coA, F (x) ∩ coA ≠ Ř, then F and T have a coincidence point. The proof of this theorem is given first in the case when X is a simplex, then when X is a polytope and finally in the general case. Several reformulations of this result are given in the last part of the paper.

Abstract:
A number a is between two numbers x and y if and only if a is a convex combination of x and y, in other words, it is a "weighted mean" of x and y. Geometric mean, arithmetic mean are well known examples of these "means". Of more recent vintage is the logarithmic mean which has been considered in many articles in the literature. In this note, we first discuss some of its properties. Then we shall introduce the L function and explore the inverse of this function and its connection with the Lambert's Omega function.

Abstract:
In 1914, F.W. Lanchester proposed several mathematical models based on differential equations to describe combat situations [34]. Since then, his work has been extensively modified to represent a variety of competitions including entire wars. Differential Lanchester type models have been studied from many angles by many authors in hundreds of papers and reports. Lanchester type models are used in the planning of optimal strategies, supply and tactics. In this paper, we will show how these models can be studied from a viability theory stand point. We will introduce the notion of winning cone and show that it is a viable cone for these models. In the last part of our paper we will use the viability theory of differential equations to study Lanchester type models from the optimal theory point of view.

Abstract:
We show that there are no (nontrivial) HilbertSchmidt Hankel operators with antiholomorphic symbols on the Bergman space of the unitball B^{2}(B^{l}) for l≥2. The result dates back to [6]. However, we give a different proof. The methodology can be easily applied to other more general settings. Especially, as indicated in the section containing generalizations, the new methodology allows to prove some robustness results for existing ones.

Abstract:
As is wellknown, underwater ridges and
submerged horizontal cylinders can serve as waveguides for surface water waves.
For large values of the wavenumber in the direction of the ridge, there is only
one trapped wave (this was proved in Bonnet & Joly (1993, SIAM J. Appl. Math.
53, pp 15071550)).
We construct the asymptotics of these trapped waves and their frequencies at
high frequency by means of reducing the initial problem to a pair of boundary
integral equations and then by applying the method of Zhevandrov & Merzon (2003,
AMS Transl. (2) 208, pp 235284), in order to solve
them.

Abstract:
By a partial dynamical system, we mean a triple containing a C*algebra A, a discrete group G and a partial action of G on A. There are two C*algebras associated to a given partial dynamical system. These are nothing but the certain C*completions of a Banach *algebra. In constructing such a Banach *algebra, usually, a tedious limit process is used to apply. In this paper, we prove some theorems in this context without any limit process.

Email: kmzundu@gmail.com
Abstract:
The Jacobson density theorem for general noncommutative Banach algebras states as follows: Let π be a continuous, irreducible representation of a noncommutative Banach algebra A on a Banach space X. If x_{1},x_{2},...,x_{n} are linearly independent in X and if y_{1},y_{2},...,y_{n} are in X, then there exists an a∈ A such that π(a)x_{i}=y_{i} for i=1,2,...,n. By considering ordered Banach algebras A and ordered Banach spaces X, we shall establish an ordertheoretic version of the Jacobson density theorem.

Abstract:
In this paper, we consider a mathematical model that describes the quasistatic process of contact between two thermoelectroviscoelastic bodies with damage and adhesion. The damage of the materials caused by elastic deformations. The contact is frictional and modeled with a normal compliance condition involving adhesion effect of contact surfaces. Evolution of the bonding field is described by a first order differential equation. We derive variational formulation for the model and prove an existence and uniqueness result of the weak solution. The proof is based on arguments of evolutionary variational inequalities, parabolic inequalities, differential equations, and fixed point theorem.

Abstract:
In this paper, we consider the diffusive MackeyGlass model with discrete delay. This equation describes the dynamics of the blood cell production. We investigate the existence of traveling wavefronts solutions connecting the two steady states of the model. We develop an alternative proof of the existence of such solutions and we also demonstrate the existence of traveling wavefronts moving at minimum speed. The proposed approach is based on the use technique of upperlower solutions. Finally, through an iterative procedure, we show numerical simulations that approximate the traveling wavefronts, thus confirming our theoretical results.

Abstract:
In this paper we consider the orthogonal collocation on finite elements (OCFE) method using quintic Hermite (second degree smooth) basis functions and use it to solve partial differential equations (PDEs). The method is particularly tailored to solve third order BVPS and PDEs and to handle their special solutions such as travelling waves and solitons, which typically is the case in the KdV equation. The use of quintic polynomials and collocation using Gauss points yields a stable high order superconvergent method. OCFE using quintic Hermite basis is optimal since it is computationally more efficient than collocation methods using (first degree smooth) piecewisepolynomials and more accurate than the (third degree smooth) Bsplines basis. Various computational simulations are presented to demonstrate the computational efficiency and versatility of the OCFE method.
