Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:59:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/3249439/
We study extension of trigonometric functions and and of hyperbolic functions and to complex domain. Our aim is to answer the question under what conditions on these functions satisfy wellknown relations for usual trigonometric and hyperbolic functions, such as, for example, . In particular, we prove in the paper that for the trigonometric and hyperbolic functions satisfy very analogous relations as their classical counterparts. Our methods are based on the theory of differential equations in the complex domain using the Maclaurin series for trigonometric and hyperbolic functions.

A Computational Study of the Boundary Value Methods and the Block Unification Methods for
Mon, 11 Apr 2016 13:05:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/8465103/
We derive a new class of linear multistep methods (LMMs) via the interpolation and collocation technique. We discuss the use of these methods as boundary value methods and block unification methods for the numerical approximation of the general secondorder initial and boundary value problems. The convergence of these families of methods is also established. Several test problems are given to show a computational comparison of these methods in terms of accuracy and the computational efficiency.

New Conditions for the Exponential Stability of Pseudolinear Difference Equations in Banach Spaces
Thu, 07 Apr 2016 06:06:10 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/5098086/
We study the local exponential stability of evolution difference systems with slowly varying coefficients and nonlinear perturbations. We establish the robustness of the exponential stability in infinitedimensional Banach spaces, in the sense that the exponential stability for a given pseudolinear equation persists under sufficiently small perturbations. The main methodology is based on a combined use of new norm estimates for operatorvalued functions with the “freezing” method.

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 11:44:04 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/2371857/
We investigate the convergence analysis of the following general inexact algorithm for approximating a zero of the sum of a cocoercive operator and maximal monotone operators with : , for for given in a real Hilbert space , where , , and are sequences in with for all , denotes the error sequence, and is a contraction. The algorithm is known to converge under the following assumptions on and : (i) is bounded below away from 0 and above away from 1 and (ii) is summable in norm. In this paper, we show that these conditions can further be relaxed to, respectively, the following: (i) is bounded below away from 0 and above away from 3/2 and (ii) is square summable in norm; and we still obtain strong convergence results.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/3094838/
The strong convergence of a hybrid algorithm to a common element of the fixed point sets of multivalued strictly pseudocontractivetype mappings and the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem in Hilbert spaces is obtained using a strict fixed point set condition. The obtained results improve, complement, and extend the results on multivalued and singlevalued mappings in the contemporary literature.

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 08:27:28 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/6301413/
The aim of this paper is to connect the zeros of polynomials in two variables with the eigenvalues of a selfadjoint operator. This is done by use of a functionalanalytic method. The polynomials in two variables are assumed to satisfy a fiveterm recurrence relation, similar to the threeterm recurrence relation that the classical orthogonal polynomials satisfy.

On the Property
Thu, 03 Mar 2016 06:55:45 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/1256906/
We construct a continuous function such that possesses property, but does not have approximate derivative on a set of full Lebesgue measure. This shows that Banach’s Theorem concerning differentiability of continuous functions with Lusin’s property does not hold for property. Some relevant properties are presented.

Convex Sweeping Processes with Noncompact Perturbations and with Delay in Banach Spaces
Tue, 23 Feb 2016 13:56:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/3853205/
We prove two results concerning the existence of solutions for functional differential inclusions that are governed by sweeping processes, with noncompact valued perturbations in Banach spaces. Indeed, we have two goals. The first is to give a technique that allows considering sweeping processes with noncompact valued perturbations and associated with a multivalued function depending on time. The second is to give a technique to overcome the arising problem from the nonlinearity of the normalized mappings, when we deal with sweeping processes with noncompact valued perturbations and associated with a multivalued function depending on time and state.

Density by Moduli and Lacunary Statistical Convergence
Mon, 15 Feb 2016 12:02:30 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/9365037/
We have introduced and studied a new concept of lacunary statistical convergence, where is an unbounded modulus. It is shown that, under certain conditions on a modulus , the concepts of lacunary strong convergence with respect to a modulus and lacunary statistical convergence are equivalent on bounded sequences. We further characterize those for which , where and denote the sets of all lacunary statistically convergent sequences and statistically convergent sequences, respectively. A general description of inclusion between two arbitrary lacunary methods of statistical convergence is given. Finally, we give an analog of the Cauchy criterion for convergence and a Tauberian theorem for convergence is also proved.

Density by Moduli and Statistical Boundedness
Wed, 10 Feb 2016 09:01:33 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/2143018/
We have generalized the notion of statistical boundedness by introducing the concept of statistical boundedness for scalar sequences where is an unbounded modulus. It is shown that bounded sequences are precisely those sequences which are statistically bounded for every unbounded modulus . A decomposition theorem for statistical convergence for vector valued sequences and a structure theorem for statistical boundedness have also been established.

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 14:01:32 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/8987374/
This paper presents an existence and localization result of unbounded solutions for a secondorder differential equation on the halfline with functional boundary conditions. By applying unbounded upper and lower solutions, Green’s functions, and Schauder fixed point theorem, the existence of at least one solution is shown for the above problem. One example and one application to an EmdenFowler equation are shown to illustrate our results.

Timelike Tangent Developable Surfaces and Bonnet Surfaces
Mon, 01 Feb 2016 06:56:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/6837543/
A criterion was given for a timelike surface to be a Bonnet surface in 3dimensional Minkowski space by Chen and Li, 1999. In this study, we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for a timelike tangent developable surface to be a timelike Bonnet surface by the aid of this criterion. This is examined under the condition of the curvature and torsion of the base curve of the timelike developable surface being nonconstant. Moreover, we investigate the nontrivial isometry preserving the mean curvature for a timelike flat helicoidal surface by considering the curvature and torsion of the base curve of the timelike developable surface as being constant.

Best Proximity Point Theorem in QuasiPseudometric Spaces
Sun, 24 Jan 2016 07:22:04 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/9784592/
In quasipseudometric spaces (not necessarily sequentially complete), we continue the research on the quasigeneralized pseudodistances. We introduce the concepts of semiquasiclosed map and contraction of Nadler type with respect to generalized pseudodistances. Next, inspired by Abkar and Gabeleh we proved new best proximity point theorem in a quasipseudometric space. A best proximity point theorem furnishes sufficient conditions that ascertain the existence of an optimal solution to the problem of globally minimizing the error , and hence the existence of a consummate approximate solution to the equation .

Exact Solutions of Travelling Wave Model via Dynamical System Method
Wed, 20 Jan 2016 07:05:38 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/9290734/
By using the method of dynamical system, the exact travelling wave solutions of the coupled nonlinear SchrödingerBoussinesq equations are studied. Based on this method, the bounded exact travelling wave solutions are obtained which contain solitary wave solutions and periodic travelling wave solutions. The solitary wave solutions and periodic travelling wave solutions are expressed by the hyperbolic functions and the Jacobian elliptic functions, respectively. The results show that the presented findings improve the related previous conclusions. Furthermore, the numerical simulations of the solitary wave solutions and the periodic travelling wave solutions are given to show the correctness of our results.

We treat the local hypoellipticity, in the first degree, for a class of abstract differential operators complexes; the ones are given by the following differential operators: , , where is a selfadjoint linear operator, positive with , in a Hilbert space , and is a series of nonnegative powers of with coefficients in , being an open set of , for any , different from what happens in the work of Hounie (1979) who studies the problem only in the case . We provide sufficient condition to get the local hypoellipticity for that complex in the elliptic region, using a Lyapunov function and the dynamics properties of solutions of the Cauchy problem ′, , being the first coefficient of . Besides, to get over the problem out of the elliptic region, that is, in the points ∗ such that ∗ = 0, we will use the techniques developed by Bergamasco et al. (1993) for the particular operator .

A Simplified Proof of Uncertainty Principle for Quaternion Linear Canonical Transform
Wed, 06 Jan 2016 11:20:21 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2016/5874930/
We provide a short and simple proof of an uncertainty principle associated with the quaternion linear canonical transform (QLCT) by considering the fundamental relationship between the QLCT and the quaternion Fourier transform (QFT). We show how this relation allows us to derive the inverse transform and Parseval and Plancherel formulas associated with the QLCT. Some other properties of the QLCT are also studied.

Generalized Variability Orderings among Nonnegative Fuzzy Random Variables
Tue, 29 Dec 2015 08:45:25 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/2015/757943/
The variability ordering for more and less variables of fuzzy random variables in terms of its distribution function is defined. A property of new better than used in expectation (NBUE) and new worse than used in expectation (NWUE) is derived as an application to the variability ordering of fuzzy random variables. The concept of generalized variability orderings of nonnegative fuzzy random variables representing lifetime of components is introduced. The domination is a generalized variability ordering. We proposed an integral inequality to the case of fuzzy random variables using ordering. The results included equivalent conditions which justify the generalized variability orderings.
