A Survey on Operator Monotonicity, Operator Convexity, and Operator Means
Wed, 11 Nov 2015 09:13:36 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2015/649839/
This paper is an expository devoted to an important class of realvalued 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, KuboAndo theory asserts the correspondence between operator monotone functions and operator means.

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
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2015/980728/
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 zetafunction taken along the real (demi)axis are expressible via elementary functions plus logarithm of the gammafunction 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
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2015/894625/
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.

Error Estimation of Functions by FourierLaguerre Polynomials Using MatrixEuler Operators
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:44:27 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2015/478345/
Various investigators have studied the degree of approximation of a function using different summability (Cesáro means of order : , Euler , and Nörlund ) means of its FourierLaguerre 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 FourierLaguerre 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.

A New Look at Worst Case Complexity: A Statistical Approach
Mon, 29 Dec 2014 07:29:17 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/840432/
We present a new and improved worst case complexity model for quick sort as , where the LHS gives the worst case time complexity, is the input size, is the frequency of sample elements, and is a function of both the input size and the parameter . The rest of the terms arising due to linear regression have usual meanings. We claim this to be an improvement over the conventional model; namely, , which stems from the worst case complexity for this algorithm.

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 09:54:05 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/945902/
We introduce the strong asymptotically equivalent and strong asymptotically lacunary equivalent sequences which are some combinations of the definitions for asymptotically equivalent, statistical limit, modulus function, convergence, and lacunary sequences. Then we use these definitions to prove strong asymptotically equivalent and strong asymptotically lacunary equivalent analogues of Connor’s results in Connor, 1988, Fridy and Orhan’s results in Fridy and Orhan, 1993, and Das and Patel’s results in Das and Patel, 1989.

Stable Numerical Evaluation of Finite Hankel Transforms and Their Application
Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:30:16 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/670562/
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.

The Construction of Hilbert Spaces over the NonNewtonian Field
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/746059/
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 nonNewtonian calculi. In this paper we introduce vector spaces over real and complex nonNewtonian field with respect to the calculus which is a branch of nonNewtonian 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 nonCartesian 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 CauchySchwarz and triangle inequalities.

Best Proximity Point Results in Complex Valued Metric Spaces
Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/827862/
We introduce the concept of proximity points for nonselfmappings 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 Pproperty in such spaces. Our results are illustrated with examples.

Some Properties of Generalized Gegenbauer Matrix Polynomials
Thu, 29 May 2014 09:23:32 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/780649/
Various new generalized forms of the Gegenbauer matrix polynomials are introduced using the integral representation method, which allows us to express them in terms of Hermite matrix polynomials. Certain properties for these new generalized Gegenbauer matrix polynomials such as recurrence relations and expansion in terms of Hermite matrix polynomials are derived. Further, several families of bilinear and bilateral generating matrix relations for these polynomials are established and their applications are presented.

The main objective of this paper is to introduce a new kind of sequence spaces by combining the concepts of modulus function, invariant means, difference sequences, and ideal convergence. We also examine some topological properties of the resulting sequence spaces. Further, we introduce a new concept of convergence and obtain a condition under which this convergence coincides with abovementioned sequence spaces.

We consider the existence of positive solution for a thirdorder singular generalized left focal boundary value problem with full derivatives in Banach spaces. Green’s function and its
properties, explicit a priori, estimates will be presented. By means of the theories of the fixed point in cones,
we establish some new and general results on the existence of single and multiple positive solutions to the
thirdorder singular generalized left focal boundary value problem. Our results are generalizations and
extensions of the results of the focal boundary value problem. An example is included to illustrate the
results obtained.

New Relations Involving an Extended Multiparameter HurwitzLerch Zeta Function with Applications
Tue, 13 May 2014 07:33:01 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/680850/
We derive several new expansion formulas involving an extended multiparameter HurwitzLerch zeta function introduced and studied recently by Srivastava et al. (2011). These expansions are obtained by using some fractional calculus methods such as the generalized Leibniz rules, the Taylorlike expansions in terms of different functions, and the generalized chain rule. Several (known or new) special cases are also given.

The Hopf Bifurcation Analysis and Optimal Control of a Delayed SIR Epidemic Model
Wed, 07 May 2014 11:34:29 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/940819/
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.

On Convergence with respect to an Ideal and a Family of Matrices
Thu, 24 Apr 2014 10:13:45 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/490904/
P. Das et al. recently introduced and studied the notions of strong summability with respect to an Orlicz function and statistical convergence, where is a nonnegative regular matrix and is an ideal on the set of natural numbers. In this paper, we will generalise these notions by replacing with a family of matrices and with a family of Orlicz functions or moduli and study the thus obtained convergence methods. We will also give an application in Banach space theory, presenting a generalisation of Simons' suplimsuptheorem to the newly introduced convergence methods (for the case that the filter generated by the ideal has a countable base), continuing some of the author's previous work.
