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.

Some Remarks on the Self-Exponential Function: Minimum Value, Inverse Function, and Indefinite Integral Sun, 23 Nov 2014 12:56:01 +0000 http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/195329/ Considering the function as a real function of real variable, what is its minimum value? Surprisingly, the minimum value is reached for a negative value of . Furthermore, considering the function , and , two different expressions in closed form for the inverse function can be obtained. Also, two different series expansions for the indefinite integral of and are derived. The latter does not seem to be found in the literature. J. L. González-Santander and G.

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. 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 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 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.

Convergence Theorems for Fixed Points of Multivalued Mappings in Hilbert Spaces Wed, 24 Sep 2014 06:05:19 +0000 http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/269786/ Let be a real Hilbert space and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Suppose is a multivalued Lipschitz pseudocontractive mapping such that . An Ishikawa-type iterative algorithm is constructed and it is shown that, for the corresponding sequence , under appropriate conditions on the iteration parameters, holds. Finally, convergence theorems are proved under approximate additional conditions. Our theorems are significant improvement on important recent results of Panyanak (2007) and Sastry and Babu (2005).

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 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.

New Relations Involving an Extended Multiparameter Hurwitz-Lerch 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 Hurwitz-Lerch 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 Taylor-like expansions in terms of different functions, and the generalized chain rule. Several (known or new) special cases are also given. H. M. Srivastava, Sébastien Gaboury, and Richard Tremblay Copyright © 2014 H. M. Srivastava et al. All rights reserved. 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' sup-limsup-theorem 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.

Unexpected Solutions of the Nehari Problem Thu, 10 Apr 2014 09:40:17 +0000 http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijanal/2014/467831/ The Nehari characteristic numbers are the minimal values of an integral functional associated with a boundary value problem (BVP) for nonlinear ordinary differential equation. In case of multiple solutions of the BVP, the problem of identifying of minimizers arises. It was observed earlier that for nonoscillatory (positive) solutions of BVP those with asymmetric shape can provide the minimal value to a functional. At the same time, an even solution with regular shape is not a minimizer. We show by constructing the example that the same phenomenon can be observed in the Nehari problem for the fifth characteristic number which is associated with oscillatory solutions of BVP (namely, with those having exactly four zeros in .
