Abstract:
The present study is dealt with an appropriate mathematical model of the arotic bifurcation in the presence of constrictions using which the physiological flow field is analized. The geometry of the bifurcated arterial segment having constrictions in both the parent and its daughter arterial lumen frequently occurring in the diseased arteries causing malfunction of the cardiovascular system , is formed mathematically with the introduction of appropriate curvatures at the lateral junctions and the flow divider. The flowing blood contained in the stenosed bifurcated artery is treated to be Newtonian and the flow is considered to be two dimensional. The motion of the arterial wall and its effect on local fluid mechanics is not ruled out from the present pursuit. The flow analysis applies the timedependent, twodimensional incompressible nonlinear NavierStokes equations for Newtonian fluid. The flow field can be obtained primarily following the radial coordinate transformation and using the appropriate boundary conditions and finally adopting a suitable finite difference scheme numerically. The influences of the arterial wall distensibility and the presence of stenosis on the flow field, the flow rate and the wall shear stresses are quantified in order to indicate the susceptibility to atherosclerotic lesions and thereby to validate the applicability of the present theoretical model.

Abstract:
The notion of nuclear cone in locally convex spaces corresponds to the notion of well based cone in normed spaces. Using the bipolar theorem from locally convex spaces it is proved that every closed nuclear cone is a full nuclear cone. Thus every closed nuclear cone can be associated to a mapping from a family of continuous seminorms in the space to the topological dual of the space. The relation with Pareto efficiency is discussed.

Abstract:
In this paper, some new generalizations of Jensen's inequality are presented. In particular, upper and lower bounds for the Jensen gap are given and compared analytically and numerically to previously published bounds for both the discrete and continuous Jensen's inequality cases. The new bounds compare favorably to previously proposed bounds. A new method based on a series of locally linear interpolations is given and is the basis for most of the bounds given in this paper. The wide applicability of this method will be demonstrated. As byproducts of this method, we shall obtain some new HermiteHadamard inequalities for functions which are 3convex or 3concave. The new method works to obtain bounds for the Jensen gap for nonconvex functions as well, provided one or two derivatives of the nonlinear function are continuous. The mean residual life function of applied probability and reliability theory plays a prominent role in construction of bounds for the Jensen gap. We also present an exact integral representation for the Jensen gap in the continuous case. We briefly discuss some inequalities for other types of convexity, such as convexity in the geometric mean, and briefly discuss applications to reliability theory.

Abstract:
In this paper we survey some recent results obtained by the author in providing various bounds for the celebrated fdivergence measure for various classes of functions f. Several techniques including inequalities of Jensen and Slater types for convex functions are employed. Bounds in terms of KullbackLeibler Distance, Hellinger Discrimination and Varation distance are provided. Approximations of the fdivergence measure by the use of the celebrated Ostrowski and Trapezoid inequalities are obtained. More accurate approximation formulae that make use of Taylor's expansion with integral remainder are also surveyed. A comprehensive list of recent papers by several authors related this important concept in information theory is also included as an appendix to the main text.

Abstract:
By working out an appropriate technique of relations and relators and extending the ideas of the direct methods of Z. Gajda and R. Ger, we prove some generalizations of the stability theorems of D. H. Hyers, T. Aoki, Th. M. Rassias and P. Găvruţă in terms of the existence and unicity of 2homogeneous and additive approximate selections of generalized subadditive relations of semigroups to vector relator spaces. Thus, we obtain generalizations not only of the selection theorems of Z. Gajda and R. Ger, but also those of the present author.

Abstract:
The usual ordering ``≤" on R is a total ordering, that is, for any two real numbers in R, we can determine their order without difficulty. However, for any two closed intervals in R, there is not a natural ordering among the set of all closed intervals in R. Several methods have been developed to compare two intervals. In this paper, we define the μordering which is a new method for ordering closed intervals.

Abstract:
In this work, we seek the approximate solution of linear integral equations by truncation Euler series approximation. After substituting the Euler expansions for the given functions of the equation and the unknown one, the equation reduces to a linear system, the solution of this latter gives the Euler coefficients and thereafter the solution of the equation. The convergence and the error analysis of this method are discussed. Finally, we compare our numerical results by others.

Abstract:
It is wellknown that for sufficiently smooth integrands on an interval, numerical integration can be performed stably and efficiently via the classical (polynomial) Gauss quadrature formulae. However, for many other sets of integrands these quadrature formulae do not perform well. A very natural way of avoiding this problem is to include a wide class among arbitrary functions (not necessary polynomials) to be integrated exactly. The spline functions are natural candidates for such problems. In this paper, after studying Gaussian type quadrature formulae which are exact for spline functions and which contain boundary terms involving derivatives at both end points, we present a fast algorithm for computing their nodes and weights. It is also shown, taking advantage of the close connection with ordinary Gauss quadrature formula, that the latter are computed, via eigenvalues and eigenvectors of real symmetric tridiagonal matrices. Hence a new class of quadrature formulae can then be computed directly by standard software for ordinary Gauss quadrature formula. Comparative results with classical Gauss quadrature formulae are given to illustrate the numerical performance of the approach.

Abstract:
The paper considers the KrylovLanczos and the Eckhoff interpolations of a function with a discontinuity at a known point. These interpolations are based on certain corrections associated with jumps in the first derivatives. In the Eckhoff interpolation, approximation of the exact jumps is accomplished by the solution of a system of linear equations. We show that in the regions where the 2periodic extension of the interpolated function is smooth, the Eckhoff interpolation converges faster compared with the KrylovLanczos interpolation. This accelerated convergence is known as the autocorrection phenomenon. The paper presents a theoretical explanation of this phenomenon. Numerical experiments confirm theoretical estimates.

In the case when E=[a,b]⊂ (1,1) and μ satisfies the condition dμ/dx>0 a.e. on E, we investigate asymptotic behavior of singular numbers σ_{kn,n} of the Hankel matrix D_{n}, where k_{n}/n→θ∈[0,1] as n→∞.

Abstract:
Suppose one is given noisy data of a discontinuous piecewisesmooth function along with a bound on its second derivative.

Abstract:
In this paper we are interested in polynomial interpolation of irregular functions namely those elements of L^{2}(R,μ) for μ a given probability measure. This is of course doesn't make any sense unless for L^{2} functions that, at least, admit a continuous version. To characterize those functions we have, first, constructed, in an abstract fashion, a chain of Sobolev like subspaces of a given Hilbert space H_{0}. Then we have proved that the chain of Sobolev like subspaces controls the existence of a continuous version for L^{2} functions and gives a pointwise polynomial approximation with a quite accurate error estimation.

Abstract:
The recurrent outbreaks of ebola in Africa present global health challenges. Ebola is a severe, very fatal disease with case fatality rates of up to 90%. In this paper, a theoretical deterministic model for ebola epidemic with quarantine of infectives is proposed and analyzed. The model exhibits two equilibria; the disease free and endemic equilibrium points. The basic reproduction number, R_{0}, which is the main threshold, is obtained and the stability of the equilibrium points established. Using parameter values drawn from the 2014 West Africa ebola outbreak, a numerical simulation of the model is carried out. It is found that the dynamics of the model are completely determined by R_{0} and that a quarantine success rate of at least 70% is sufficient to contain the disease outbreak.

Abstract:
In this paper at first a brief history of mathematical models is presented with the aim to clarify the reliability of stochastic models over deterministic models. Next, the necessary background about random variables and stochastic processes, especially Markov chains and the entropy are introduced. After that, entropy of SIR stochastic models is computed and it is proven that an epidemic will disappear after a long time. Entropy of a stochastic mathematical model determines the average uncertainty about the outcome of that random experiment. At the end, we introduce a chain binomial epidemic model and compute its entropy, which is then compared with the DTMC SIR epidemic model to show which one is nearer to reality.

Abstract:
In this paper, we introduce a new three steps iterative process called JungckAM iterative process and show that the proposed iterative process can be used to approximate fixed points of Jungckcontractive type mappings and JungckSuzuki type mappings. In addition, we establish some strong and Δconvergence results for the approximation of fixed points of JungckSuzuki type mappings in the frame work of uniformly convex hyperbolic space. Furthermore, we show that the newly proposed iterative process has a better rate of convergence compare to the JungckNoor, JungckSP, JungckCR and some existing iterative processes in the literature. Finally, stability, data dependency results for JungckAM iterative process is established and we present an analytical proof and numerical examples to validate our claim.

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).

Some numerical examples are investigated to illustrate the method. Moreover, the results obtained by this method are compared with the exact solution and with the results of some existing methods as well.

We build upon such results using an integration technique that we apply to ``convert'' a given evaluation for such a series into an evaluation for a corresponding series involving squared harmonic numbers.

Abstract:
Let E be a uniformly convex and uniformly smooth real Banach space with dual space E^{*}. Let {T_{i}}^{∞}_{i=1} be a family of Jnonexpansive maps, where, for each i,~T_{i} maps E to 2^{E*}. A new class of maps, Jnonexpansive maps from E to E^{*}, an analogue of nonexpansive self maps of E, is introduced. Assuming that the set of common Jfixed points of {T_{i}}^{∞}_{i=1} is nonempty, an iterative scheme is constructed and proved to converge strongly to a point x^{*} in ∩^{∞}_{n=1}F_{J}T_{i}. This result is then applied, in the case that E is a real Hilbert space to obtain a strong convergence theorem for approximation of a common fixed point for an infinite family of nonexpansive maps, assuming existences. The theorem obtained is compared with some important results in the literature. Finally, the technique of proof is also of independent interest.

Abstract:
In this paper, we introduce some new implicit Kirktype iterative schemes in generalized convex metric spaces in order to approximate fixed points for general class of quasicontractive type operators. The strong convergence, Tstability, equivalency, data dependence and convergence rate of these results were explored. The iterative schemes are faster and better, in term of speed of convergence, than their corresponding results in the literature. These results also improve and generalize several existing iterative schemes in the literature and they provide analogues of the corresponding results of other spaces, namely: normed spaces, CAT(0) spaces and so on.

The main aim of this paper is to introduce a stochastic version of multistep type iterative scheme called a modified random implicitKirk multistep iterative scheme and prove strong convergence and stability results for a class of generalized contractivetype random operators. The rate of convergence of the random iterative schemes are also examined through an example. The results show that our new random implicit kirk multistep scheme perform better than other implicit iterative schemes in terms of convergence and thus have good potentials for further applications in equilibrium problems in computer science, physics and economics.

An increase of pressure in the structure of cochlea may cause a hearing loss. In this paper, we established the relationship between the fluid pressure and the amplitude of displacement of Basilar Membrane to clarify the mechanisms of hearing loss caused by increasing of this pressure. So, a mathematical cochlear model was formulated using finite difference method in order to explain and demonstrate this malfunction in passive model. Numerical simulations may be considered as helpful tools which may extend and complete the understanding of a cochlea dysfunction.

This paper gives upper and lower bounds on the gap in Jensen's inequality, i.e., the difference between the expected value of a function of a random variable and the value of the function at the expected value of the random variable. The bounds depend only on growth properties of the function and specific moments of the random variable. The bounds are particularly useful for distributions that are concentrated around the mean, a commonly occurring scenario such as the average of i.i.d. samples and in statistical mechanics.

Abstract:
In addition to solid ground of Riemannian manifolds fundamentals, this article interviews some popular optimization methods on Riemannian manifolds. Several optimization problems can be better stated on manifolds rather than Euclidean space, such as interior point methods, which in turns based on selfconcordant functions (logarithmic barrier functions). Optimization schemes like the steepest descent scheme, the Newton scheme, and others can be extended to Riemannian manifolds. This paper introduces some Riemannian and nonRiemannian schemes on manifolds.

Abstract:
A Finsler manifold is a differential manifold together with a Finsler metric, in this paper we construct a new class of Finsler metric affine manifolds on bilevel semivectorial with optimization problems. The first steps for this purpose involve the study of bilevel optimization on affine manifolds. The bilevel programming problem can be viewed as a static version of the noncooperative, twoperson game which was introduced in the context of unbalanced economic markets. Bilevel optimization is a special kind of optimization where one problem is embedded within another.

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:
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 ≠ Ø, 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.

This paper deals with the global asymptotic stability character of solutions of a discrete time deterministic model proposed by Wikan and Eide in Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, 66, 2004, 16851704. A stochastic extension of this model is proposed and discussed. Computer simulations suggest that the dynamics of the stochastic model includes a mixture of the dynamics observed in the deterministic model.

Abstract:
We introduce a new iterative method for approximating a locally unique solution of variational inclusions in Banach spaces by using generalized divided differences of the first order. This method extends a method considered by Traub (in the scalar case) and by Potra (in the Banach spaces case) for solving nonlinear equations to variational inclusions. An existenceconvergence theorem and a radius of convergence are given under some conditions on divided differences operator and Lipschitzlike continuity property of setvalued mappings. The Rorder of the method is equal to the unique positive root of a certain cubic equation, which is $1.839..., and as such it compares favorably to related methods such as the Secant method which is only of order $1.618....

Abstract:
The aim of this paper is to introduce a new iteration process (5) for ρcontraction mappings in Modular spaces. We obtain some analytical proof for convergence and stability of our iteration process (5). We show that our iteration process (5) gives faster convergence results than the leading AK iteration process (4) for contraction mappings. Moreover, a numerical example (using the Matlab Software) is presented to compare the rate of convergence for existing iteration processes with our new iteration process (5).

Abstract:
The adjacent configurations of twodimensional magnetic null point centers are analyzed by an immediate examination about the null. The configurations are classified as either potential or nonpotential. By then the nonpotential cases are subdivided into three cases depending upon whether the component of current is less than, equal to or greater than a threshold current. In addition the essential structure of reconnection in 2D is examined. It unfolds that the manner by which the magnetic flux is rebuilt. In this paper, we center on the ramifications of kinematic arrangements; that is, we fathom just Maxwell's conditions and a resistive Ohm's law.

Abstract:
In this paper, classes of integral and integrodifferential equations are solved using a modified differential transform method. This proposed technique is based on differential transform method (DTM), Laplace transform (LT) procedure and Pad\'{e} approximants (PA). The proposed method which gives a good approximation for the true solution in a large region is referred to modified differential transform method (MDTM). An algorithm was developed to illustrate the flow of the proposed method. Some numerical problems are presented to check the applicability of the proposed scheme and the obtained results from the computations are compared with other existing methods to illustrates its efficiency. Numerical results have shown that the proposed MDTM method is promising compared to other existing methods for solving integral and integrodifferential equations.

Abstract:
In this paper we are interested in the numerical approximation of a twodimensional solute transport equation in heterogeneous porous media having periodic structures. It is a class of problems which has been the subject of various works in the literature, where different methods are proposed for the determination of the socalled homogenized problem. We are interested in this paper, in the direct resolution of the problem, and we use the method of lines with a finite volume approach to discretize this equation. This discretization leads to an ordinary differential equation (ODE) that we discretize by the Euler implicit scheme. Numerical experiments comparing the obtained solution and the homogenized problem solution are presented. They show that the precision and robustness of this method depend on the ratio between, the mesh size and the parameter involved in the periodic homogenization.

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.

Abstract:
This paper considers two independent general class of nonlinear contractive maps to study the existence properties of nonlinear operators with prior degenerate. The existence properties are proved in the framework of approximate fixed points with the imposition of the general class of contractive conditions in metrical convex spaces without emphasis on completeness or compactness. For computational purposes, the performance estimates and the sensitivity dependence of these conditions are obtained for the Picard operator. Practical examples are also considered to justify the validity of the conditions. The results ensure no term is lost in the operators with prior degenerate and the conditions are strictly larger class when compare with others in the literature.

Abstract:
We study the asymptotic behavior of solutions for an integrodifferential problem which arises in the theory of viscoelasticity. It is proved that solutions go to rest in an exponential manner under new assumptions on the relaxation function in the memory term. In particular, we consider a new family of kernels which are not necessarily decreasing.

Abstract:
In this paper, we use the auxiliary principle technique to suggest some new classes of iterative algorithms for solving multivalued equilibrium problems with trifunction. The convergence of the proposed methods either requires partially relaxed strongly monotonicity or pseudomonotonicity. As special cases, we obtain a number of known and new results for solving various classes of equilibrium and variational inequality problems. Since multivalued equilibrium problems with trifunction include equilibrium, variational inequality and complementarity problems as specials cases, our results continue to hold for these problems.

In 1998 Jung [14] investigated the HyersUlam stability of additive and quadratic mappings on restricted domains. In this paper we improve the bounds and thus the results obtained by Jung [14], in 1998 and by the author [21], in 2002. Besides we establish new theorems about the Ulam stability of mixed type functional equations on restricted domains. Finally, we apply our recent results to the asymptotic behavior of functional equations of different types.

Positive Solutions of Evolution Operator Equations
Author(s):
Radu Precup
Department of Applied Mathematics,

Abstract:
Existence and localization results are derived from Krasnoselskii’s compressionexpansion fixed point theorem in cones, for operator equations in spaces of continuous functions from a compact real interval to an abstract space. The main idea, first used in [12], is to handle two equivalent operator forms of the equation, one of fixed point type giving the operator to which Krasnoselskii’s theorem applies and an other one of coincidence type which is used to localize a positive solution in a shell. An application is presented for a boundary value problem associated to a fourth order partial differential equation on a rectangular domain.

It is well known that the mixed quasivariational inequalities are equivalent to the fixed point problems.

Since mixed quasivariational inequalities include the classical variational inequalities and the complementarity problems as special cases, our results continue to hold for these problems.

In this paper, we study further the generalized inverse _{ } of a matrix A over an integral domain. We give firstly some necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the generalized inverse _{ }, an explicit expression for the elements of the generalized inverse _{ } and an explicit expression for the generalized inverse _{ }, which reduces to the {1} inverse. Secondly, we verify that the group inverse, the Drazin inverse, the MoorePenrose inverse and the weighted MoorePenrose inverse are identical with the generalized inverse _{ } for an appropriate matrix G, respectively, and then we unify the conditions for the existence and the expression for the elements of the weighted MoorePenrose inverse, the MoorePenrose inverse, the Drazin inverse and the group inverse over an integral domain. Thirdly, as a simple application, we give the relation between some rank equation and the existence of the generalized inverse _{ }, and a method to compute the generalized inverse _{ }. Finally, we give an example of evaluating the elements of _{ } without calculating _{ }.

Abstract:
In this paper three different stable methods for solving numerically deconvolution problems with noise are studied. The methods examined are the variational regularization method, the dynamical systems method, and the iterative regularized processes. Gravity surveying problem with noise is studied as a model problem. The results obtained by these methods are compared to the exact solution for the model problem. It is found that these three methods are highly stable methods and always converge to the solution even for large size models. The relative higher accuracy is obtained by using the iterative regularized processes.

Nonnegative definite Lyapunov functionals are employed to obtain sufficient conditions that guarantee the exponential asymptotic stability and uniform exponential asymptotic stability of the zero solution of nonlinear functional differential systems. The theory is applied to Volterra integrodifferential equations in the form of proposition examples.

Abstract:
This work is devoted to the study of the statistical properties of financial instruments from developed markets. We performed a new analysis of the behavior of companies corresponding to the DJIA index, and of the index itself, by using a normalized Truncated Levy walk model. We conclude that the Truncated Levy distribution describes perfectly the evolution of the companies and of the index near a crash.

Abstract:
Based on a regularized Volterra equation, two different approaches for numerical differentiation are considered. The first approach consists of solving a regularized Volterra equation while the second approach is based on solving a disretized version of the regularized Volterra equation. Numerical experiments show that these methods are efficient and compete favorably with the variational regularization method for stable calculating the derivatives of noisy functions.

We continue the investigation on classes of small sets in a Banach space that give alternative formulations of the Drop Property. The small sets here considered are the set having the small ball property, and we show that for sets having nonempty intrinsic core and whose affine hull contains a closed affine space of infinite dimension the Drop Property can be equivalently formulated in terms of the small ball property.

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.

iargyros@cameron.edu
Abstract:
We improve the mesh independence principle [1] which states that when Newton's method is applied to an equation on a Banach space as well as to their finitedimensional discretization there is a difference of at most one between the number of steps required by the two processes to converge to within a given error tolerance. Here using a combination of Lipschitz and center Lipschitz continuity assumptions instead of just Lipschitz conditions we show that the minimum number of steps required can be at least as small as in earlier works. Some numerical examples are provided whereas our results compare favorably with earlier ones.

Abstract:
In this paper, we study vector optimization problems in partially ordered Banach spaces. We suppose that the objective mapping possesses a weakened property of lower semicontinuity and make no assumptions on the interior of the ordering cone. We derive sufficient conditions for existence of efficient solutions of the above problems and discuss the role of topological properties of the objective space. We discuss the scalarization of vector optimization problems when the objective functions are vectorvalued mappings with a weakened property of lower semicontinuity. We also prove the existence of the socalled generalized efficient solutions via the scalarization process. All principal notions and assertions are illustrated by numerous examples.

Abstract:
Demimartingales and demisubmartingales introduced by
Newman and
Wright (1982) generalize the notion of martingales and
submartingales respectively. In this paper we define
multidimensionally indexed demimartingales and demisubmartingales
and prove a maximal inequality for this general class of random
variables. As a corollary we obtain a HájekRényi inequality
for multidimensionally indexed associated random variables, the bound of which,
when reduced to the case of single index, is sharper than the bounds already
known in the literature.

Abstract:
In this paper a unified approach to the
derivation of families of one
dimensional hyperbolic differential equations and boundary conditions describing
the longitudinal vibration of elastic bars is outlined. The longitudinal and
lateral displacements are expressed in the form of a power series expansion in
the lateral coordinate. Equations of motion and boundary conditions are derived
using Hamilton's variational principle. Most of the well known models in this
field fall within the frames of the proposed theory, including the classical
model, and the more elaborated models proposed by by Rayleigh, Love, Bishop,
Mindlin, Herrmann and McNiven. The exact solution is presented for the
MindlinHerrmann case in terms of Green functions. Finally, deductions regarding
the accuracy of the models are made by comparison with the exact
PochhammerChree solution for an isotropic cylinder.

Abstract:
This paper deals with Szegö type limits for multiplication operators on L^{2} (R) with respect to Haar orthonormal basis. Similar studies have been carried out by Morrison for multiplication operators T_{f} using Walsh System and Legendre polynomials [14]. Unlike the Walsh and Fourier basis functions, the Haar basis functions are local in nature. It is observed that Szegö type limit exist for a class of multiplication operators T_{f} , f∈ L^{∞} (R) with respect to Haar (wavelet) system with appropriate ordering. More general classes of orderings of Haar system are identified for which the Szegö type limit exist for certain classes of multiplication operators. Some illustrative examples are also provided.

Expected Utility with Subjective Events
Author(s):
Jacob Gyntelberg and Frank Hansen
Bank for International Settlements,

Sendai,
Japan
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.

A OneLine Derivation of the Euler and Ostrogradski Equations
Author(s):
Olivier de La Grandville
Stanford University,
Department of Management Science and Engineering,
Stanford, CA 94305,
U. S. A
Abstract:
At the very heart of major results of classical physics, the Euler and Ostrogradski equations have apparently no intuitive interpretation. In this paper we show that this is not so. Relying on Euler's initial geometric approach, we show that they can be obtained through a direct reasoning that does not imply any calculation. The intuitive approach we suggest offers two benefits: it gives immediate significance to these fundamental secondorder nonlinear differential equations; and second, it allows to obtain a property of the calculus of variations that does not seem to have been uncovered until now: the Euler and Ostrogradski equations can be derived not necessarily by giving a variation to the optimal function  as is always done; one could equally well start by giving a variation to their derivative(s).

Author(s):

Email: indraneelk@berkeley.edu
Abstract:
On Sendov's conjecture, T. Chijiwa quantifies the idea stated by V. Vâjâitu and A. Zaharescu (and M. J. Miller independently), namely that if a polynomial with all roots inside the closed unit disk has a root sufficiently close to the unit circle then there is a critical point at a distance of at most one from that root. Chijiwa provides an estimate of exponential order for the required 'closeness' of the root to the unit circle so that such a critical point may exist. In this paper, we will improve this estimate to polynomial order by making major modifications and strengthening inequalities in Chijiwa's proof.

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.

Abstract:
We offer an intuitive explanation of the endpoint and transversality conditions that complement the Euler equation in the calculus of variations. Our reasoning is based upon the fact that any variation given to an optimal function must entail a zero net gain to the functional, all consequences of implied changes in its derivative being fully taken into account.

Abstract:
We prove existence of weak solutions of stochastic NavierStokes equations in R^{2} which do not satisfy the coercivity condition. The equations are formally derived from the critical point of some variational problem defined on the space of volume preserving diffeomorphisms in R^{2}. Since the domain of our equation is unbounded, it is more difficult to get tightness of approximating sequences of solutions in comparison with the case of a bounded domain. Our approach is based on uniform a priori estimates on the enstrophy of weak solutions of the stochastic 2DNavierStokes equations with periodic boundary conditions, where the periodicity is growing to infinity combined with a suitable spatial cutofftechnique.

In this paper, an exposition of the central concept of global analysis on a Riemannan manifold is given. We extend the theory of smooth vector fields from open subsets of Euclidean space to Riemannan manifolds. Specifically, we prove that a Riemannian manifold admits a unique solution for a system of ordinary differential equations generated by the flow of smooth tangent vectors. The idea of partial differential equations on Riemannian manifold is highlighted on the unit sphere.

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:
A mathematical model of HIV/AIDS is governed by a system of ordinary differential equations in the presence of an antiretroviral treatment (ARV). The theory of optimal control is applied to an epidemic model of HIV/AIDS which an ARV is used as a control strategy in order to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. The optimality system is derived by applying the Pontryagin's Minimum Principle. We analyze the boundedness and positivity of solutions, and an existence of the optimal control. Numerical simulations are conducted to obtain numerical solution of the optimally system.

Abstract:
In this article dynamical behavior of coupled Duffing oscillators is analyzed under a small modification. The oscillators have cubic damping instead of linear one. Although single duffing oscillator has complex dynamics, coupled duffing systems possess a much more complex structure. The dynamical behavior of the system is investigated both numerically and analytically. Numerical results indicate that the system has double scroll attractor with suitable parameter values. On the other hand, bifurcation diagrams illustrate rich behavior of the system, and it is seen that, system enters into chaos with different routes. Beside classical bifurcations, bubbling route to chaos is observed for suitable parameter settings. On the other hand, Multistability of the system is indicated with the coexisting attractors, such that under same parameter setting the system shows different periodic and chaotic attractors. Moreover, chaotic synchronization of coupled oscillators is illustrated in final section.

Abstract:
In this paper we survey some recent trace inequalities for operators in Hilbert spaces that are connected to Schwarz's, Buzano's and Kato's inequalities and the reverses of Schwarz inequality known in the literature as Cassels' inequality and ShishaMond's inequality. Applications for some functionals that are naturally associated to some of these inequalities and for functions of operators defined by power series are given. Further, various trace inequalities for convex functions are presented including refinements of Jensen inequality and several reverses of Jensen's inequality. HermiteHadamard type inequalities and the trace version of Slater's inequality are given. Some Lipschitz type inequalities are also surveyed. Examples for fundamental functions such as the power, logarithmic, resolvent and exponential functions are provided as well.

Abstract:
In this paper, based on the theorem of the uniqueness of the solution of the stochastic differential equation, the convergence possibility of the Caratheodory's approximate solution was studied by approximating the unique solution. To obtain this convergence theorem, we used a Hölder condition and a weakened linear growth condition. Furthermore, The auxiliary theorems for the existence and continuity of the Caratheodory's approximate solution were investigated as a prerequisite.

Abstract:
In this paper we introduce a three step iteration method and show that it can be used to approximate the fixed point of a weak contraction mapping. Furthermore, we prove that this scheme is equivalent to the Mann iterative scheme. A comparison is made with other three step iterative methods by examining the speed of convergence. Results are presented in tables to support our conclusion.

Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to reestablish the convergence, stability and data dependence results established by [2] and [3] by removing the strong assumptions imposed on the sequences which were used to obtain their results. In addition, we introduced a modified approach using the Diterative method to solve a twopoint secondorder boundary value problem, and also obtain the solution of a delay differential equations using the obtained results in this paper. The results presented in this paper do not only extend and improve the results obtained in [2, 3], it further extends and improve some existing results in the literature.
