Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Jean-Marie Koninck and Florian Luca

For a large class of arithmetic functions f, it is possible to show that, given an arbitrary integer κ ≤ 2, the string of inequalities f(n + 1) < f(n + 2) < … < f(n + κ) holds for in-finitely many positive integers n. For other arithmetic functions f, such a property fails to hold even for κ = 3. We examine arithmetic functions from both classes. In particular, we show that there are only finitely many values of n satisfying σ2(n − 1) < σ2 < σ2(n + 1), where σ2(n) = ∑d|n d 2. On the other hand, we prove that for the function f(n) := ∑p|n p 2, we do have f(n − 1) < f(n) < f(n + 1) in finitely often.

# Existence and nonexistence results for a fourth-order discrete neumann boundary value problem

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Xia Liu, Yuanbiao Zhang and Haiping Shi

In this paper, a fourth-order nonlinear difference equation is considered. By making use of the critical point theory, we establish various sets of sufficient conditions for the existence and nonexistence of solutions for Neumann boundary value problem and give some new results. Results obtained generalize and complement the existing ones.

We prove that for any μ > 0, there exists λ* sufficiently small, and λ* large enough such that for any λ ∈ (0; λ*) ∪ (λ*, ∞), the above system has a nontrivial weak solution. The proof relies on some variational arguments based on the Ekeland’s variational principle and some adequate variational methods.

# Lower bounds for the variance of unbiased estimators in generalized beta distribution of the second kind (GB2)

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica

In order to give an excellent description of income distributions, although a large number of functional forms have been proposed, but the four-parameter generalized beta model of the second kind (GB2), introduced by J. B. McDonald , is now widely acknowledged which is including many other models as special or limiting cases.One of the fundamentals of statistical inference is the estimation problem of a function of unknown parameter in a probability distribution and computing the variance of the estimator or approximating it by lower bounds.In this paper, we consider two famous lower bounds for the variance of any unbiased estimator, which are Bhattacharyya and Kshirsagar bounds. We obtain the general forms of the Bhattacharyya and Kshirsagar matrices in the GB2 distribution. In addition, we compare different Bhattacharyya and Kshirsagar bounds for the variance of any unbiased estimator of some parametric functions such as mode, mean, skewness and kurtosis in GB2 distribution and conclude that in each case, which bound is better to use. The results of this paper can be useful for researchers trying to find the accuracy of the estimators.

# Malfatti’s problem on the hyperbolic plane

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Ákos Horváth

More than two centuries ago Malfatti (see ) raised and solved the following problem (the so-called Malfatti’s construction problem): Construct three circles into a triangle so that each of them touches the two others from outside moreover touches two sides of the triangle too. It is an interesting fact that nobody investigated this problem on the hyperbolic plane, while the case of the sphere was solved simultaneously with the Euclidean case. In order to compensate this shortage we solve the following exercise: Determine three cycles of the hyperbolic plane so that each of them touches the two others moreover touches two of three given cycles of the hyperbolic plane.

# A new class of non-semiprime quasi-Armendariz rings

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica

Hirano [On annihilator ideals of a polynomial ring over a noncommutative ring, J. Pure Appl. Algebra, 168 (2002), 45–52] studied relations between the set of annihilators in a ring R and the set of annihilators in a polynomial extension R[x] and introduced quasi-Armendariz rings. In this paper, we give a sufficient condition for a ring R and a monoid M such that the monoid ring R[M] is quasi-Armendariz. As a consequence we show that if R is a right APP-ring, then R[x]=(x n) and hence the trivial extension T(R,R) are quasi-Armendariz. They allow the construction of rings with a non-zero nilpotent ideal of arbitrary index of nilpotency which are quasi-Armendariz.

# On the existence of mild solutions for a class of fractional differential equations with nonlocal conditions in the α-norm

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Mohamed Abbas

This paper concerns the existence of mild solutions for some fractional Cauchy problem with nonlocal conditions in the α-norm. The linear part of the equations is assumed to generate an analytic compact bounded semigroup, and the nonlinear part satisfies some Lipschitz conditions with respect to the fractional power norm of the linear part. By using a fixed point theorem of Sadovskii, we establish some existence results which generalize ones in the case of fractional order derivative.

# Recurrence relations and reliability measures in slash and skew-slash distributions

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Yaser Mehrali, Majid Asadi and Gholamhossein Hamedani

In recent years, slash and skew slash distributions have been employed, as flexible models, in various fields. In this paper, we study several properties of these distributions in both univariate and multivariate cases. Some recurrence relations for the probability density functions are derived and the behavior of reliability measures, such as hazard rate and mean residual life, associated to these distributions are investigated.

# Rings whose nilpotent elements form a Lie ideal

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Yinchun Qu and Junchao Wei

A ring R is called NLI (rings whose nilpotent elements form a Lie ideal) if for each aN(R) and bR, abbaN(R). Clearly, NI rings are NLI. In this note, many properties of NLI rings are studied. The main results we obtain are the following: (1) NLI rings are directly finite and left min-abel; (2) If R is a NLI ring, then (a) R is a strongly regular ring if and only if R is a Von Neumann regular ring; (b) R is (weakly) exchange if and only if R is (weakly) clean; (c) R is a reduced ring if and only if R is a n-regular ring; (3) If R is a NLI left MC2 ring whose singular simple left modules are Wnil-injective, then R is reduced.

# A new generalization of the logarithmic series distribution

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: A. Mishra

A new generalization of the logarithmic series distribution has been obtained as a limiting case of the zero-truncated Mishra’s  generalized negative binomial distribution (GNBD). This distribution has an advantage over the Mishra’s  quasi logarithmic series distribution (QLSD) as its moments appear in compact forms unlike the QLSD. This makes the estimation of parameters easier by the method of moments. The first four moments of this distribution have been obtained and the distribution has been fitted to some well known data-sets to test its goodness of fit.

In the following text we prove that in a generalized shift dynamical system (X Г, σ φ) for infinite countable Г and discrete X with at least two elements the following statements are equivalent:

1. the dynamical system (X Г, σ φ) is chaotic in the sense of Devaney
2. the dynamical system (X Г, σ φ) is topologically transitive
3. the map φ: Г → Г is one to one without any periodic point.
Also for infinite countable Г and finite discrete X with at least two elements (X Г, σ φ) is exact Devaney chaotic, if and only if φ: Г → Г is one to one and φ: Г → Г has niether periodic points nor φ-backwarding infinite sequences.

# C-coherent rings, C-semihereditary rings and C-regular rings

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Zhanmin Zhu

Let C be a class of some finitely presented left R-modules. A left R-module M is called C-injective, if ExtR 1(C, M) = 0 for each CC. A right R-module M is called C-flat, if Tor1 R(M, C) = 0 for each CC. A ring R is called C-coherent, if every CC is 2-presented. A ring R is called C-semihereditary, if whenever 0 → KPC → 0 is exact, where CC and P is finitely generated projective and K is finitely generated, then K is also projective. A ring R is called C-regular, if whenever P/KC, where P is finitely generated projective and K is finitely generated, then K is a direct summand of P. Using the concepts of C-injectivity and C-flatness of modules, we present some characterizations of C-coherent rings, C-semihereditary rings, and C-regular rings.

Next, the operators of the considered class which preserve exactly two test functions from the set {e 0, e 1, e 2} are determined. It is proved that the test functions e 0 and e 1 are preserved only by the Bernstein operators, the test functions e 0 and e 2 only by the King operators while the test functions e 1 and e 2 only by the operators recently introduced by P.

# The beta generalized half-normal geometric distribution

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Thiago Ramires, Edwin Ortega, Gauss Cordeiro and Gholamhoss Hamedani

The beta generalized half-normal distribution is commonly used to model lifetimes. We propose a new wider distribution called the beta generalized half-normal geometric distribution, whose failure rate function can be decreasing, increasing or upside-down bathtub. Its density function can be expressed as a linear combination of beta generalzed half-normal density functions. We derive quantile function, moments and generating unction. We characterize the proposed distribution using a simple relationship between wo truncated moments. The method of maximum likelihood is adapted to estimate the model parameters and its potentiality is illustrated with an application to a real fatigue data set. Further, we propose a new extended regression model based on the logarithm of the new distribution. This regression model can be very useful for the analysis of real data and provide more realistic fits than other special regression models.

The purpose of this paper is to revise von Neumann’s characterizations of selfadjoint operators among symmetric ones. In fact, we do not assume that the underlying Hilbert space is complex, nor that the corresponding operator is densely defined, moreover, that it is closed. Following Arens, we employ algebraic arguments instead of the geometric approach of von Neumann using the Cayley transform.

# On app skew generalized power series rings

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: A. Majidinya and A. Moussavi

By , a ring R is left APP if R has the property that “the left annihilator of a principal ideal is pure as a left ideal”. Equivalently, R is a left APP-ring if R modulo the left annihilator of any principal left ideal is flat. Let R be a ring, (S, ≦) a strictly totally ordered commutative monoid and ω: S → End(R) a monoid homomorphism. Following , we show that, when R is a (S, ω)-weakly rigid and (S, ω)-Armendariz ring, then the skew generalized power series ring R[[S , ω]] is right APP if and only if r R(A) is S-indexed left s-unital for every S-indexed generated right ideal A of R. We also show that when R is a (S, ω)-strongly Armendariz ring and ω(S) ⫅ Aut(R), then the ring R[[S , ω]] is left APP if and only if R(∑a As S s(a)) is S-indexed right s-unital, for any S-indexed subset A of R. In particular, when R is Armendariz relative to S, then R[[S ]] is right APP if and only if r R(A) is S-indexed left s-unital, for any S-indexed generated right ideal A of R.

# Linearization of the products of the generalized Lauricella polynomials and the multivariate Laguerre polynomials via their integral representations

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: Shuoh-Jung Liu, Shy-Der Lin, Han-Chun Lu and H. Srivastava

In this paper, the authors investigate the linearization problems associated with two families of generalized Lauricella polynomials of the first and second kinds. By means of their multiple integral representations, it is shown how one can linearize the product of two different members of each of these two families of the generalized Lauricella polynomials. Upon suitable specialization of the main results presented in this paper, the corresponding integral representations are deduced for such familiar classes of multivariable hypergeometric polynomials as (for example) the Lauricella polynomials F A (r) in r variables, the Appell polynomials F 2 in two variables and the multivariable Laguerre polynomials. Each of these integral representations, which are derived as special cases of the main results in this paper, may also be viewed as a linearization relationship for the product of two different members of the associated family of multivariable hypergeometric polynomials.

These are exactly those commutative groups (G, +) for which the quotient group G/G 0 is uncountable, where G 0 denotes the torsion subgroup of G.

# Diminution of the convergence classes of divergent permutations

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Roman Wituła

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relations of incomparability between so called convergence classes of the permutations of ℕ. The convergence class of any permutation p of ℕ, denoted by Σ(p), is defined to be the family of all real series Σa n such that both Σa n and Σa p(n) are convergent. A permutation p of ℕ is called a divergent permutation if there exists a conditionally convergent real series Σa n such that the p-rearranged series Σa p(n) is divergent.It is proved that for every divergent permutation p of ℕ there exists a family \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage{bbm} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $\mathfrak{F}$ \end{document}(p) of divergent permutations of ℕ such that card \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage{bbm} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $\mathfrak{F}$ \end{document}(p) = \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage{bbm} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $\mathfrak{c}$ \end{document} and for every q\documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage{bbm} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $\mathfrak{F}$ \end{document}(p) the family Σ(q) is a proper subset of Σ(p) and, furthermore, Σ(q 1)\Σ(q 2) ≠ ∅ and Σ(q 2)\Σ(q 1) ≠ ∅ whenever q 1; q 2\documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \usepackage{bbm} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $\mathfrak{F}$ \end{document}(p) are different.

# On the csáki-vincze transformation

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Hatem Hajri

Csáki and Vincze have defined in 1961 a discrete transformation T which applies to simple random walks and is measure preserving. In this paper, we are interested in ergodic and asymptotic properties of T. We prove that T is exact: ∩k≧1 σ(T k(S)) is trivial for each simple random walk S and give a precise description of the lost information at each step k. We then show that, in a suitable scaling limit, all iterations of T “converge” to the corresponding iterations of the continuous Lévy transform of Brownian motion.

# On the variety of strict pseudosemilattices

Authors: K. Auinger and L. Oliveira

A new model, in terms of finite bipartite graphs, of the free pseudosemilattice is presented. This will then be used to obtain several results about the variety SPS of all strict pseudosemilattices: (i) an identity basis for SPS is found, (ii) SPS is shown to be inherently non-finitely based, (iii) SPS is shown to have no irredundant identity basis, and (iv) SPS is shown to have no covers and to be ∩-prime in the lattice of all varieties of pseudosemilattices. Some applications to e-varieties of locally inverse semigroups are also derived.

# On the volume product of planar polar convex bodies — Lower estimates with stability

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Authors: K. Böröczky, E. Makai, M. Meyer and S. Reisner

Let K ⊂ ℝ2 be an o-symmetric convex body, and K* its polar body. Then we have |K| · |K*| ≧ 8, with equality if and only if K is a parallelogram. (|·| denotes volume). If K ⊂ ℝ2 is a convex body, with o ∈ int K, then |K| · |K*| ≧ 27/4, with equality if and only if K is a triangle and o is its centroid. If K ⊂ ℝ2 is a convex body, then we have |K| · |[(KK)/2)]*| ≧ 6, with equality if and only if K is a triangle. These theorems are due to Mahler and Reisner, Mahler and Meyer, and to Eggleston, respectively. We show an analogous theorem: if K has n-fold rotational symmetry about o, then |K| · |K*| ≧ n 2 sin2(π/n), with equality if and only if K is a regular n-gon of centre o. We will also give stability variants of these four inequalities, both for the body, and for the centre of polarity. For this we use the Banach-Mazur distance (from parallelograms, or triangles), or its analogue with similar copies rather than affine transforms (from regular n-gons), respectively. The stability variants are sharp, up to constant factors. We extend the inequality |K| · |K*| ≧ n 2 sin2(π/n) to bodies with o ∈ int K, which contain, and are contained in, two regular n-gons, the vertices of the contained n-gon being incident to the sides of the containing n-gon. Our key lemma is a stability estimate for the area product of two sectors of convex bodies polar to each other. To several of our statements we give several proofs; in particular, we give a new proof for the theorem of Mahler-Reisner.

We also study the same question when A is a multivariable-to-multivariable matrix.

The paper gives a generalization of results of () on the weak limit laws of Y n(t) conditioned to stay away from some small sets.

# Joint distributions of circular runs of various lengths based on multi-colour Pólya urn model

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Sonali Bhattacharya

In this paper, we have used Eryilmaz’s (2008) multi-colour Pólya urn model to obtain joint distributions of runs of t-types of exact lengths (k 1, k 2, …, k t), at least lengths (k 1, k 2, …, k t), non-overlapping runs of lengths (k 1, k 2, … k t) and overlapping runs of lengths (k 1, k 2, … k t) when counting of runs is done in a circular setup. We have also derived joint distributions of longest runs of various types under similar conditions. Distributions of runs have found applications in fields of reliability of consecutive-k-out-of n: F system, consecutive k-out-of-r-from n: F system, start-up demonstration test, molecular biology, radar detection, time sharing systems and quality control. The literature is profound in discussion of marginal distribution and joint distribution of runs of various types under linear and circular setup using techniques like urn model with balls of two or more colours, probability generating function and compounding discrete distribution with suitable beta functions. Through this paper for first time effort been made to discuss joint distributions of runs of various lengths and types using Multi-colour urn model.

Let G be a finite group and H a subgroup of G. H is said to be S-quasinormal in G if HP = PH for all Sylow subgroups P of G. Let H sG be the subgroup of H generated by all those subgroups of H which are S-quasinormal in G and H sG the intersection of all S-quasinormal subgroups of G containing H. The symbol |G|p denotes the order of a Sylow p-subgroup of G. We prove the followingTheorem A. Let G be a finite group and p a prime dividing |G|. Then G is p-supersoluble if and only if for every cyclic subgroup H of (G) of prime order or order 4 (if p = 2), has a normal subgroup T such that H sḠ and HT=H sḠT.Theorem B.

# Nilpotent elements and McCoy rings

Authors: Liang Zhao, Xiaosheng Zhu and Qinqin Gu

We introduce the concept of nil-McCoy rings to study the structure of the set of nilpotent elements in McCoy rings. This notion extends the concepts of McCoy rings and nil-Armendariz rings. It is proved that every semicommutative ring is nil-McCoy. We shall give an example to show that nil-McCoy rings need not be semicommutative. Moreover, we show that nil-McCoy rings need not be right linearly McCoy. More examples of nil-McCoy rings are given by various extensions. On the other hand, the properties of α-McCoy rings by considering the polynomials in the skew polynomial ring R[x; α] in place of the ring R[x] are also investigated. For a monomorphism α of a ring R, it is shown that if R is weak α-rigid and α-reversible then R is α-McCoy.

# Varieties generated by 2-testable monoids

Studia Scientiarum Mathematicarum Hungarica
Author: Edmond Lee

The smallest monoid containing a 2-testable semigroup is defined to be a 2-testable monoid. The well-known Brandt monoid B 2 1 of order six is an example of a 2-testable monoid. The finite basis problem for 2-testable monoids was recently addressed and solved. The present article continues with the investigation by describing all monoid varieties generated by 2-testable monoids. It is shown that there are 28 such varieties, all of which are finitely generated and precisely 19 of which are finitely based. As a comparison, the sub-variety lattice of the monoid variety generated by the monoid B 2 1 is examined. This lattice has infinite width, satisfies neither the ascending chain condition nor the descending chain condition, and contains non-finitely generated varieties.
