During the last decade, a number of explicit results about the distributions of exponential functionals of Brownian motion with drift: At(μ)=0t ds exp {2(Bs+μs)}, have been obtained, often originating with the works of D. Dufresne.

In the present paper, we rely extensively on these results to show the existence of limiting measures asT, when the law of {Bt+μt,0_t_T} is perturbed by the Radon-Nikodym density consisting of either of the normalized functionals exp (αAT(μ)) or 1/(AT(μ))m. The results exhibit different regimes according to whether μ_0, or μ<0 in the first case, and to a partition of the (μ,m)-plane in the second case.

Although a large number of similar studies have been made for, say, one-dimensional diffusions, the present study, which focuses upon Brownian exponential functionals, appears to be new.

We study the effect on sections of a soluble-by-finite group G of finite rank of an almost fixed-point-free automorphism φ of G of finite order. We also elucidate the structure of G if φ has order 4 and if G is also (torsion-free)-by-finite. The latter extends recent work of Xu, Zhou and Liu.

In this paper, we investigate the uniqueness of algebroid functions in angular domain by the method of conformal mapping. We discuss the relations between the Borel directions and uniquenss with the multiple values of algebroid functions and obtain some results which extend some uniqueness results of meromorphic functions to that of algebroid functions.

This paper is concerned with the existence of solutions to a class of p(x)-Kirchhoff-type equations with Robin boundary data as follows:

MΩ1p(x)up(x)dx+Ωβ(x)p(x)up(x)dσdiv(up(x)-2u)=f(x,u)inΩ,
up(x)2uv+β(x)up(x)2u=0 on Ω,

Where βL(Ω) and f:Ω× satisfies Carathéodory condition. By means of variational methods and the theory of the variable exponent Sobolev spaces, we establish conditions for the existence of weak solutions.

In this paper we prove and discuss some new (Hp, Lp,∞) type inequalities of the maximal operators of T means with monotone coefficients with respect to Walsh–Kaczmarz system. It is also proved that these results are the best possible in a special sense. As applications, both some well-known and new results are pointed out. In particular, we apply these results to prove a.e. convergence of such T means.

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 , in the classical approach of von Neumann, must be symmetric to guarantee self-adjointness. However, it can be shown that the symmetry could be omitted by using a criterion for the graph of the operator and the adjoint of the graph. Namely, S is shown to be densely defined and closed if and only if k+l:k,lGSGS*=.

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, ℱn(X), consisting of all nonempty subsets of X with at most n points; and for a given function ƒ : XX, we consider the induced functions ℱn(ƒ): ℱn(X) → ℱn(X). Let M be one of the following classes of functions: exact, transitive, ℤ-transitive, ℤ+-transitive, mixing, weakly mixing, chaotic, turbulent, strongly transitive, totally transitive, orbit-transitive, strictly orbit-transitive, ω-transitive, minimal, I N, T T ++, semi-open and irreducible. In this paper we study the relationship between the following statements: ƒM and ℱn(ƒ) ∈ M.

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 p ) with Lie group G, where M admits Lorentzian almost paracontact structure (Ø, ξ p, ηp, 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 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.

Let be a Schrödinger operator on the Heisenberg group n, where Δn is the sublaplacian on n and the nonnegative potential V belongs to the reverse Hölder class Bq with q[Q/2,+). Here  Q=2n+2 is the homogeneous dimension of n. Assume that {esL}s>0 is the heat semigroup generated byL. The Lusin area integral SL;α and the Littlewood–Paley–Stein function gλ,L* associated with the Schrödinger operator L are defined, respectively, by

SL;α(f)(u):=Γα(u)sddsesLf(υ)2dυdssQ/2+11/2,

where

Γα(u):={(υ,s)n×(0,+):u1υ<αs},

and

gλ,L*(f)(u):=0nss+u1υ2λsddsesLf(υ)2dυdssQ/2+11/2 ,

Where λ(0,+) is a parameter. In this article, the author shows that there is a relationship between SL;α and the operator gλ,L* and for any 1p<, the following inequality holds true:

SL;2j(f)LpnC2jQ/2+2jQ/psL(f)Lp(n).

Based on this inequality and known results for the Lusin area integral SL;1, the author establishes the strong-type and weak-type estimates for the Littlewood–Paley–Stein function gλ,L* on Lp(n). In this article, the author also introduces a class of Morrey spaces associated with the Schrödinger operator L on n. By using some pointwise estimates of the kernels related to the nonnegative potential V, the author establishes the boundedness properties of the operator gλ,L* acting on the Morrey spaces for an appropriate choice of λ>0. It can be shown that the same conclusions hold for the operator gλ,L* on generalized Morrey spaces as well.

A fluid queueing system in which the fluid flow in to the buffer is regulated by the state of the background queueing process is considered. In this model, the arrival and service rates follow chain sequence rates and are controlled by an exponential timer. The buffer content distribution along with averages are found using continued fraction methodology. Numerical results are illustrated to analyze the trend of the average buffer content for the model under consideration. It is interesting to note that the stationary solution of a fluid queue driven by a queue with chain sequence rates does not exist in the absence of exponential timer.

Abstract

Fix 2 < n < ω and let CAn denote the class of cyindric algebras of dimension n. Roughly CAn is the algebraic counterpart of the proof theory of first order logic restricted to the first n variables which we denote by Ln. The variety RCAn of representable CAns reflects algebraically the semantics of L n. Members of RCAn are concrete algebras consisting of genuine n-ary relations, with set theoretic operations induced by the nature of relations, such as projections referred to as cylindrifications. Although CAn has a finite equational axiomatization, RCAn is not finitely axiomatizable, and it generally exhibits wild, often unpredictable and unruly behavior. This makes the theory of CAn substantially richer than that of Boolean algebras, just as much as Lω,ω is richer than propositional logic. We show using a so-called blow up and blur construction that several varieties (in fact infinitely many) containing and including the variety RCAn are not atom-canonical. A variety V of Boolean algebras with operators is atom canonical, if whenever 𝔄 V is atomic, then its Dedekind-MacNeille completion, sometimes referred to as its minimal completion, is also in V. From our hitherto obtained algebraic results we show, employing the powerful machinery of algebraic logic, that the celebrated Henkin-Orey omitting types theorem, which is one of the classical first (historically) cornerstones of model theory of L ω,ω, fails dramatically for L n even if we allow certain generalized models that are only locallly clasfsical. It is also shown that any class K such that NrnCAωCRCAn¯K¯ScNrnCAn+3 , where CRCAn is the class of completely representable CAns, and Sc denotes the operation of forming dense (complete) subalgebras, is not elementary. Finally, we show that any class K such that SdRaCAω¯K¯ScRaCA5 is not elementary, where Sd denotes the operation of forming dense subalgebra.

Let 𝔄 be a unital Banach algebra and its Jacobson radical. This paper investigates Banach algebras satisfying some chain conditions on closed ideals. In particular, it is shown that a Banach algebra 𝔄 satisfies the descending chain condition on closed left ideals then 𝔄/ is finite dimensional. We also prove that a C *-algebra satisfies the ascending chain condition on left annihilators if and only if it is finite dimensional. Moreover, other auxiliary results are established.

In this study, a normalized form of regular Coulomb wave function is considered. By using the differential subordinations method due to Miller and Mocanu, we determine some conditions on the parameters such that the normalized regular Coulomb wave function is lemniscate starlike and exponential starlike in the open unit disk, respectively. In additon, by using the relationship between the regular Coulomb wave function and the Bessel function of the first kind we give some conditions for which the classical Bessel function of the first kind is lemniscate and exponential starlike in the unit disk 𝔻.

This survey revisits Jenő Egerváry and Otto Szász’s article of 1928 on trigonometric polynomials and simple structured matrices focussing mainly on the latter topic. In particular, we concentrate on the spectral theory for the first type of the matrices introduced in the article, which are today referred to as k-tridiagonal matrices, and then discuss the explosion of interest in them over the last two decades, most of which could have benefitted from the seminal article, had it not been overlooked.

In this paper, we prove that if m ≡ 2 or 3 (mod 4) and m ≢∓1 (mod 9), then the number field K is monogenic. If m ≡ 1 (mod 4) or m ≡ 1 (mod 9), then the number field K is not monogenic.

In this study, we investigate suborbital graphs G u,n of the normalizer ΓB (N) of Γ0 (N) in PSL(2, ℝ) for N = 2α3β where α = 1, 3, 5, 7, and β = 0 or 2. In these cases the normalizer becomes a triangle group and graphs arising from the action of the normalizer contain quadrilateral circuits. In order to obtain graphs, we first define an imprimitive action of ΓB (N) on using the group ГΒ+ (N) and then obtain some properties of the graphs arising from this action.

For n,m≥ 2 this paper is devoted to the description of the sets of extreme and exposed points of the closed unit balls of (lnm) and s(lnm), where (lnm) is the space of n-linear forms on m with the supremum norm, and s(lnm) is the subspace of (lnm) consisting of symmetric n-linear forms. First we classify the extreme points of the unit balls of (lnm) and s(lnm), respectively. We show that ext B(lnm) ⊂ ext B(lnm+1), which answers the question in []. We show that every extreme point of the unit balls of (lnm) and s(lnm) is exposed, correspondingly. We also show that

Abstract

Consider the sequence s of the signs of the coefficients of a real univariate polynomial P of degree d. Descartes’ rule of signs gives compatibility conditions between s and the pair (r + ,r ), where r + is the number of positive roots and r the number of negative roots of P. It was recently asked if there are other compatibility conditions, and the answer was given in the form of a list of incompatible triples (s; r + ,r ) which begins at degree d = 4 and is known up to degree 8. In this paper we raise the question of the compatibility conditions for (s;r0+,r0;r1+,r1;;rd1+,rd1), whereri+ (resp.ri) is the number of positive (resp. negative) roots of the i-th derivative of P. We prove that up to degree 5, there are no other compatibility conditions than the Descartes conditions, the above recent incompatibilities for each i, and the trivial conditions given by Rolle’s theorem.

In 1975 C. F. Chen and C. H. Hsiao established a new procedure to solve initial value problems of systems of linear differential equations with constant coefficients by Walsh polynomials approach. However, they did not deal with the analysis of the proposed numerical solution. In a previous article we study this procedure in case of one equation with the techniques that the theory of dyadic harmonic analysis provides us. In this paper we extend these results through the introduction of a new procedure to solve initial value problems of differential equations with not necessarily constant coefficients.

Let p(z)=j=0najzj be a polynomial of degree n. Further, letM(p,R)=max|z|=R1|p(z)|, and p=M(p,1). Then according to the well-known Bernstein inequalities, we have pnp and M(p,R)Rnp. It is an open problem to obtain inequalities analogous to these inequalities for the class of polynomials satisfying p(z) ≡ z n p(1/z). In this paper we obtain some inequalites in this direction for polynomials that belong to this class and have all their coefficients in any sector of opening γ, where 0 _ γ < π. Our results generalize and sharpen several of the known results in this direction, including those of Govil and Vetterlein [3], and Rahman and Tariq [12]. We also present two examples to show that in some cases the bounds obtained by our results can be considerably sharper than the known bounds.

In this paper, we prove that if X is a space with a regular G δ-diagonal and X 2 is star Lindelöf then the cardinality of X is at most 2c. We also prove that if X is a star Lindelöf space with a symmetric g-function such that {g 2(n, x): nω} = {x} for each xX then the cardinality of X is at most 2c. Moreover, we prove that if X is a star Lindelöf Hausdorff space satisfying (X) = κ then e(X) 22κ; and if X is Hausdorff and we(X) = (X) = κsubset of a space then e(X) 2κ. Finally, we prove that under V = L if X is a first countable DCCC normal space then X has countable extent; and under MA+¬CH there is an example of a first countable, DCCC and normal space which is not star countable extent. This gives an answer to the Question 3.10 in Spaces with property (DC(ω 1)), Comment. Math. Univ. Carolin., 58(1) (2017), 131-135.

Abstract

Fejes Tóth [] studied approximations of smooth surfaces in three-space by piecewise flat triangular meshes with a given number of vertices on the surface that are optimal with respect to Hausdorff distance. He proves that this Hausdorff distance decreases inversely proportional with the number of vertices of the approximating mesh if the surface is convex. He also claims that this Hausdorff distance is inversely proportional to the square of the number of vertices for a specific non-convex surface, namely a one-sheeted hyperboloid of revolution bounded by two congruent circles. We refute this claim, and show that the asymptotic behavior of the Hausdorff distance is linear, that is the same as for convex surfaces.

Let 0 < γ 1 < γ 2 < ··· ⩽ ··· be the imaginary parts of non-trivial zeros of the Riemann zeta-function. In the paper, we consider the approximation of analytic functions by shifts of the Hurwitz zeta-function ζ(s + k h, α), h > 0, with parameter α such that the set {log(m + α): m0} is linearly independent over the field of rational numbers. For this, a weak form of the Montgomery conjecture on the pair correlation of {γ k} is applied.

Some of our results generalize the previous results. Also we investigate some properties of these classes of operator algebras.

Let m ≠ 0, ±1 and n ≥ 2 be integers. The ring of algebraic integers of the pure fields of type (nm) is explicitly known for n = 2, 3,4. It is well known that for n = 2, an integral basis of the pure quadratic fields can be given parametrically, by using the remainder of the square-free part of m modulo 4. Such characterisation of an integral basis also exists for cubic and quartic pure fields, but for higher degree pure fields there are only results for special cases.

In this paper we explicitly give an integral basis of the field (nm), where m ≠ ±1 is square-free. Furthermore, we show that similarly to the quadratic case, an integral basis of (nm) is repeating periodically in m with period length depending on n.

We provide a new proof of Hua's result that every sufficiently large integer N ≡ 5 (mod 24) can be written as the sum of the five prime squares. Hua's original proof relies on the circle method and uses results from the theory of L-functions. Here, we present a proof based on the transference principle first introduced in[5]. Using a sieve theoretic approach similar to ([10]), we do not require any results related to the distributions of zeros of L- functions. The main technical difficulty of our approach lies in proving the pseudo-randomness of the majorant of the characteristic function of the W-tricked primes which requires a precise evaluation of the occurring Gaussian sums and Jacobi symbols.
