A Survey on Operator Monotonicity, Operator Convexity, and Operator Means Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:13:36 +0000 This paper is an expository devoted to an important class of real-valued functions introduced by Löwner, namely, operator monotone functions. This concept is closely related to operator convex/concave functions. Various characterizations for such functions are given from the viewpoint of differential analysis in terms of matrix of divided differences. From the viewpoint of operator inequalities, various characterizations and the relationship between operator monotonicity and operator convexity are given by Hansen and Pedersen. In the viewpoint of measure theory, operator monotone functions on the nonnegative reals admit meaningful integral representations with respect to Borel measures on the unit interval. Furthermore, Kubo-Ando theory asserts the correspondence between operator monotone functions and operator means. Pattrawut Chansangiam Copyright © 2015 Pattrawut Chansangiam. All rights reserved.

On Equalities Involving Integrals of the Logarithm of the Riemann -Function with Exponential Weight Which Are Equivalent to the Riemann Hypothesis Sun, 18 Oct 2015 16:22:19 +0000 Integral equalities involving integrals of the logarithm of the Riemann -function with exponential weight functions are introduced, and it is shown that an infinite number of them are equivalent to the Riemann hypothesis. Some of these equalities are tested numerically. The possible contribution of the Riemann function zeroes nonlying on the critical line is rigorously estimated and shown to be extremely small, in particular, smaller than nine milliards of decimals for the maximal possible weight function exp(). We also show how certain Fourier transforms of the logarithm of the Riemann zeta-function taken along the real (demi)axis are expressible via elementary functions plus logarithm of the gamma-function and definite integrals thereof, as well as certain sums over trivial and nontrivial Riemann function zeroes.

An Integral Mean Value Theorem concerning Two Continuous Functions and Its Stability Sun, 27 Sep 2015 13:17:24 +0000 The aim of this paper is to investigate an integral mean value theorem proposed by one of the references of this paper. Unfortunately, the proof contains a gap. First, we present a counterexample which shows that this theorem fails in this form. Then, we present two improved versions of this theorem. The stability of the mean point arising from the second result concludes this paper. Monea Mihai Copyright © 2015 Monea Mihai. All rights reserved. Error Estimation of Functions by Fourier-Laguerre Polynomials Using Matrix-Euler Operators Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:44:27 +0000 Various investigators have studied the degree of approximation of a function using different summability (Cesáro means of order : , Euler , and Nörlund ) means of its Fourier-Laguerre series at the point after replacing the continuity condition in Szegö theorem by much lighter conditions. The product summability methods are more powerful than the individual summability methods and thus give an approximation for wider class of functions than the individual methods. This has motivated us to investigate the error estimation of a function by -transform of its Fourier-Laguerre series at frontier point , where is a general lower triangular regular matrix. A particular case, when is a Cesáro matrix of order 1, that is, , has also been discussed as a corollary of main result. M. L. Mittal and Mradul Veer Singh Copyright © 2015 M. L.

The rest of the terms arising due to linear regression have usual meanings.

Stable Numerical Evaluation of Finite Hankel Transforms and Their Application Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:30:16 +0000 A new stable algorithm, based on hat functions for numerical evaluation of Hankel transform of order , is proposed in this paper. The hat basis functions are used as a basis to expand a part of the integrand, , appearing in the Hankel transform integral. This leads to a very simple, efficient, and stable algorithm for the numerical evaluation of Hankel transform. The novelty of our paper is that we give error and stability analysis of the algorithm and corroborate our theoretical findings by various numerical experiments. Finally, an application of the proposed algorithm is given for solving the heat equation in an infinite cylinder with a radiation condition. Manoj P. Tripathi, B. P. Singh, and Om P.

The Construction of Hilbert Spaces over the Non-Newtonian Field Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0000 Although there are many excellent ways to present the principle of the classical calculus, the novel presentations probably lead most naturally to the development of the non-Newtonian calculi. In this paper we introduce vector spaces over real and complex non-Newtonian field with respect to the -calculus which is a branch of non-Newtonian calculus. Also we give the definitions of real and complex inner product spaces and study Hilbert spaces which are special type of normed space and complete inner product spaces in the sense of -calculus. Furthermore, as an example of Hilbert spaces, first we introduce the non-Cartesian plane which is a nonlinear model for plane Euclidean geometry. Secondly, we give Euclidean, unitary, and sequence spaces via corresponding norms which are induced by an inner product. Finally, by using the -norm properties of complex structures, we examine Cauchy-Schwarz and triangle inequalities. Uğur Kadak and Hakan Efe Copyright © 2014 Uğur Kadak and Hakan Efe.

Best Proximity Point Results in Complex Valued Metric Spaces Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0000 We introduce the concept of proximity points for nonself-mappings between two subsets of a complex valued metric space which is a recently introduced extension of metric spaces obtained by allowing the metric function to assume values from the field of complex numbers. We apply this concept to obtain the minimum distance between two subsets of the complex valued metric spaces. We treat the problem as that of finding the global optimal solution of a fixed point equation although the exact solution does not in general exist. We also define and use the concept of P-property in such spaces. Our results are illustrated with examples. Binayak S. Choudhury, Nikhilesh Metiya, and Pranati Maity Copyright © 2014 Binayak S.

The Hopf Bifurcation Analysis and Optimal Control of a Delayed SIR Epidemic Model Wed, 07 May 2014 11:34:29 +0000 We propose a delayed SIR model with saturated incidence rate. The delay is incorporated into the model in order to model the latent period. The basic reproductive number is obtained. Furthermore, using time delay as a bifurcation parameter, it is proven that there exists a critical value of delay for the stability of diseases prevalence. When the delay exceeds the critical value, the system loses its stability and a Hopf bifurcation occurs. The model is extended to assess the impact of some control measures, by reformulating the model as an optimal control problem with vaccination and treatment. The existence of the optimal control is also proved. Finally, some numerical simulations are performed to verify the theoretical analysis.
