Doubly Stochastic Right Multipliers

Author:

Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created:

Abstract: 

Let P(G) be the set of normalized regular Borel measures on a compact group G. Let Dr be the set of doubly stochastic (d.s.) measures λ on G×G such that λ(As×Bs)=λ(A×B), where s∈G, and A and B are Borel subsets of G. We show that there exists a bijection μ↔λ between P(G) and Dr such that ϕ−1=m⊗μ, where m is normalized Haar measure on G, and ϕ(x,y)=(x,xy−1) for x,y∈G. Further, we show that there exists a bijection between Dr and Mr, the set of d.s. right multipliers of L1(G). It follows from these results that the mapping μ→Tμ defined by Tμf=μ∗f is a topological isomorphism of the compact convex semigroups P(G) and Mr. It is shown that Mr is the closed convex hull of left translation operators in the strong operator topology of B[L2(G)].

Generalized Classes of Starlike and Convex Functions of Order α

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
1985
Abstract: 

We have introduced, in this paper, the generalized classes of starlike and convex functions of order α by using the fractional calculus. We then proved some subordination theorems, argument theorems, and various results of modified Hadamard product for functions belonging to these classes. We have also established some properties about the generalized Libera operator defined on these classes of functions.

Abstract: 

In this paper, we study the fixed point property of certain types ofcontractive mappings defined on a premetric space. The applications of these results to topological vector spaces and to metric spaces are also discussed.

A Bounded Consistency Theorem for Strong Summabilities

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
1989
Abstract: 

The study of R-type summability methods is continued in this paper byshowing that two such methods are identical on the bounded portion of the strongsummability field associated with the methods. It is shown that this “boundedconsistency” applies for many non-matrix methods as well as for regular matrix methods.

A Weak Invariance Principle and Asymptotic Stability for Evolution Equations with Bounded Generators

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
1995
Abstract: 

If V is a Lyapunov function of an equation du/dt u’ Zu in a Banach space thenasymptotic stability of an equilibrium point may be easily proved if it is known that sup(V’) < 0 onsufficiently small spheres centered at the equilibrium point. In this paper weak asymptotic stability isproved for a bounded infinitesimal generator Z under a weaker assumption V’ < 0 (which aloneimplies ordinary stability only) if some observability condition, involving Z and the Frechet derivativeof V’, is satisfied. The proof is based on an extension of LaSalle’s invariance principle, which yieldsconvergence in a weak topology and uses a strongly continuous Lyapunov funcdon. The theory isillustrated with an example of an integro-differential equation of interest in the theory of chemicalprocesses. In this case strong asymptotic stability is deduced from the weak one and explicit sufficientconditions for stability are given. In the case of a normal infinitesimal generator Z in a Hilbertspace, strong asymptotic stability is proved under the following assumptions Z* + Z is weaklynegative definite and Ker Z 0 }. The proof is based on spectral theory.

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
1996
Abstract: 

In this paper, we consider the simultaneous approximation of the derivatives of thefunctions by the corresponding derivatives of qua.si-Hcrmite interpolation based on the zeros of (1z2)p,(z) (where p,(x)is a Lcgcndrc polynomial). The corresponding approximation degrees are given.It is shown that this matrix of nodes is almost optimal

Modelling Desert Dune Fields Based on Discrete Dynamics

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
2002
Abstract: 

A mathematical formulation is developed to model the dynamics of sand dunes. The physical processes display strong non-linearity that has been taken into account in the model. When assessing the success of such a model in capturing physical features we monitor morphology, dune growth, dune migration and spatial patterns within a dune field. Following recent advances, the proposed model is based on a discrete lattice dynamics approach with new features taken into account which reflect physically observed mechanisms.

Continuum Model of the Two-Component Becker-Döring Equations

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
2004
Abstract: 

The process of collision between particles is a subject of interest in many fields of physics, astronomy, polymer physics, atmospheric physics, and colloid chemistry. If two types of particles are allowed to participate in the cluster coalescence, then the time evolution of the cluster distribution has been described by an infinite system of ordinary differential equations. In this paper, we describe the model with a second-order two-dimensional partial differential equation, as a continuum model.

Minmax Strongly Connected Subgraphs with Node Penalties

Author: 
Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
2005
Abstract: 

We propose an O(min{m+nlogn,mlog∗n}) to find a minmax strongly connected spanningsubgraph of a digraph with n nodes and m arcs. A generalization of this problemcalled theminmax strongly connected subgraph problem with node penalties is also considered.An O(mlogn) algorithm is proposed to solve this general problem. We also discussways to improve the average complexity of this algorithm.

BRASERO: A Resource for Benchmarking RNA Secondary Structure Comparison Algorithms

Peer reviewed: 
Yes, item is peer reviewed.
Date created: 
2012
Abstract: 

The pairwise comparison of RNA secondary structures is a fundamental problem, with direct application in mining databases for annotating putative noncoding RNA candidates in newly sequenced genomes. An increasing number of software tools are available for comparing RNA secondary structures, based on different models (such as ordered trees or forests, arc annotated sequences, and multilevel trees) and computational principles (edit distance, alignment). We describe here the website BRASERO that offers tools for evaluating such software tools on real and synthetic datasets.
