The sticky polymatroid conjecture states that any two extensions of the polymatroid have an amalgam if and only if the polymatroid has no non-modular pairs of flats. We show that the conjecture holds for polymatroids on five or less elements.

A linear operator on a Hilbert space *S* is shown to be densely defined and closed if and only if

In a more general setup, we can consider relations instead of operators and we prove that in this situation a similar result holds. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for a linear relation to be densely defined and self-adjoint.

Let *X* be a topological space. For any positive integer *n*, we consider the *n*-fold symmetric product of *X*, ℱ*

*X*with at most

*n*points; and for a given function

*ƒ*:

Infinite matroids have been defined by Reinhard Diestel and coauthors in such a way that this class is (together with the finite matroids) closed under dualization and taking minors. On the other hand, Andreas Dress introduced a theory of matroids with coefficients in a fuzzy ring which is – from a combinatorial point of view – less general, because within this theory every circuit has a finite intersection with every cocircuit. Within the present paper, we extend the theory of matroids with coefficients to more general classes of matroids, if the underlying fuzzy ring has certain properties to be specified.

In many clique search algorithms well coloring of the nodes is employed to find an upper bound of the clique number of the given graph. In an earlier work a non-traditional edge coloring scheme was proposed to get upper bounds that are typically better than the one provided by the well coloring of the nodes. In this paper we will show that the same scheme for well coloring of the edges can be used to find lower bounds for the clique number of the given graph. In order to assess the performance of the procedure we carried out numerical experiments.

This paper solves an enumerative problem which arises naturally in the context of Pascal’s hexagram. We prove that a general Desargues configuration in the plane is associated to *six* conical sextuples via the theorems of Pascal and Kirkman. Moreover, the Galois group associated to this problem is isomorphic to the symmetric group on six letters.

The purpose of this paper is to study the principal fibre bundle (*P*, *M*, *G*, *π*
_{

} ) with Lie group *G*, where M admits Lorentzian almost paracontact structure (*Ø*, *ξ*
_{
p
}, η_{
p
}, *g*) satisfying certain condtions on (1, 1) tensor field *J*, indeed possesses an almost product structure on the principal fibre bundle. In the later sections, we have defined trilinear frame bundle and have proved that the trilinear frame bundle is the principal bundle and have proved in Theorem 5.1 that the Jacobian map *π*
^{

} is the isomorphism.

Many combinatorial optimization problems can be expressed in terms of zero-one linear programs. For the maximum clique problem the so-called edge reformulation is applied most commonly. Two less frequently used LP equivalents are the independent set and edge covering set reformulations. The number of the constraints (as a function of the number of vertices of the ground graph) is asymptotically quadratic in the edge and the edge covering set LP reformulations and it is exponential in the independent set reformulation, respectively. F. D. Croce and R. Tadei proposed an approach in which the number of the constraints is equal to the number of the vertices. In this paper we are looking for possible tighter variants of these linear programs.

We introduce the directional short-time Fourier transform for which we prove a new Plancherel’s formula. We also prove for this transform several uncertainty principles as Heisenberg inequalities, logarithmic uncertainty principle, Faris–Price uncertainty principles and Donoho–Stark’s uncertainty principles.

We deﬁne the extended beta family of distributions to generalize the beta generator pioneered by Eugene *et al*. [10]. This paper is cited in at least 970 scientiﬁc articles and extends more than ﬁfty well-known distributions. Any continuous distribution can be generalized by means of this family. The proposed family can present greater ﬂexibility to model skewed data. Some of its mathematical properties are investigated and maximum likelihood is adopted to estimate its parameters. Further, for different parameter settings and sample sizes, some simulations are conducted. The superiority of the proposed family is illustrated by means of two real data sets.
