http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2015/153124/
This paper presents the approximate analytical solutions to solve the nonlinear gas dynamics and coupled
Burger’s equations with fractional time derivative. By using initial values, the explicit solutions of the equations are solved by

Geometric Construction of EighthOrder Optimal Families of Ostrowski’s Method
Thu, 26 Mar 2015 08:06:08 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2015/614612/
Based on wellknown fourthorder Ostrowski’s method, we proposed many new interesting optimal families of eighthorder multipoint methods without memory for obtaining simple roots. Its geometric construction consists in approximating at zn in such a way that its average with the known tangent slopes at xn and yn is the same as the known weighted average of secant slopes and then we apply weight function approach. The adaptation of this strategy increases the convergence order of Ostrowski's method from four to eight and its efficiency index from 1.587 to 1.682. Finally, a number of numerical examples are also proposed to illustrate their accuracy by comparing them with the new existing optimal eighthorder methods available in the literature. It is found that they are very useful in high precision computations. Further, it is also noted that larger basins of attraction belong to our methods although the other methods are slow and have darker basins while some of the methods are too sensitive upon the choice of the initial value.

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:30:46 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2015/494707/
We establish the stabilities and blowup results for the nonisentropic EulerPoisson equations by the energy method. By analysing the second inertia, we show that the classical solutions of the system with attractive forces blow up in finite time in some special dimensions when the energy is negative. Moreover, we obtain the stabilities results for the system in the cases of attractive and repulsive forces.

A Mathematical Model for the Flow of a Casson Fluid due to Metachronal Beating of Cilia in a Tube
Thu, 19 Feb 2015 08:15:30 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2015/487819/
A mathematical model is developed to study the transport mechanism of a Casson fluid flow inspired by the metachronal coordination between the beating cilia in a cylindrical tube. A twodimensional system of nonlinear equations governing the flow problem is formulated by using axisymmetric cylindrical coordinates and then simplified by employing the long wavelength and low Reynolds number assumptions. Exact solutions are derived for the velocity components, the axial pressure gradient, and the stream function. However, the expressions for the pressure rise and the volume flow rate are evaluated numerically. The features of the flow characteristics such as pumping and trapping are illustrated and discussed with the help of graphs. It is observed that the volume flow rate is influenced significantly by the width of plug flow region as well as the cilia length parameter . The analysis is also applied and compared with the estimated value of the volume flow rate of epididymal fluid in the ductus efferentes of the human male reproductive tract.

Some New Sets of Sequences of Fuzzy Numbers with Respect to the Partial Metric
Wed, 28 Jan 2015 12:18:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2015/735703/
In this paper, we essentially deal with
KötheToeplitz duals of fuzzy level sets defined using a partial metric. Since the utilization of Zadeh’s
extension principle is quite difficult in practice, we prefer the idea of level sets in order to construct
some classical notions. In this paper, we present the sets of bounded, convergent, and null series and the
set of sequences of bounded variation of fuzzy level sets, based on the partial metric. We examine the
relationships between these sets and their classical forms and give some properties including definitions,
propositions, and various kinds of partial metric spaces of fuzzy level sets. Furthermore, we study some of
their properties like completeness and duality. Finally, we obtain the KötheToeplitz duals of fuzzy level
sets with respect to the partial metric based on a partial ordering.

We associate some (old) convergent series related to definite integrals with the cyclotomic equation , for several natural numbers m; for example, for , leads to . In some cases, we express the results in terms of the Dirichlet characters. Generalizations for arbitrary m are well defined but do imply integrals and/or series summations rather involved.

Numerical Algorithm Based on HaarSinc Collocation Method for Solving the Hyperbolic PDEs
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/340752/
The present study investigates the HaarSinc collocation method for the solution of the hyperbolic partial telegraph equations. The advantages of this technique are that not only is the convergence rate of Sinc approximation exponential but the computational speed also is high due to the use of the Haar operational matrices. This technique is used to convert the problem to the solution of linear algebraic equations via expanding the required approximation based on the elements of Sinc functions in space and Haar functions in time with unknown coefficients. To analyze the efficiency, precision, and performance of the proposed method, we presented four examples through which our claim was confirmed.

Position of the evader satisfies phase constraints: , where is a subset of . We considered two cases: (1) controls of the players satisfy geometric constraints, and (2) controls of the players satisfy total constraints. Terminal set is a subset of and it is assumed to have a nonempty interior. Game is said to be completed if at some step ; thus, the evader has not the right to leave set . To construct the control of the pursuer, at each step , we use the value of the control parameter of the evader at the step . We obtain sufficient conditions of completion of pursuit from certain initial positions of the players in finite time interval and construct a control for the pursuer in explicit form.

Multistage Spectral Relaxation Method for Solving the Hyperchaotic Complex Systems
Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:18:52 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/943293/
We present a pseudospectral method application for solving the hyperchaotic complex systems. The proposed method, called the multistage spectral relaxation method (MSRM) is based on a technique of extending GaussSeidel type relaxation ideas to systems of nonlinear differential equations and using the Chebyshev pseudospectral methods to solve the resulting system on a sequence of multiple intervals. In this new application, the MSRM is used to solve famous hyperchaotic complex systems such as hyperchaotic complex Lorenz system and the complex permanent magnet synchronous motor. We compare this approach to the RungeKutta based ode45 solver to show that the MSRM gives accurate results.

New Formulae for the HighOrder Derivatives of Some Jacobi Polynomials: An Application to Some HighOrder Boundary Value Problems
Tue, 14 Oct 2014 07:04:39 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/456501/
This paper is concerned with deriving some new formulae expressing explicitly the highorder derivatives of Jacobi polynomials whose parameters difference is one or two of any degree and of any order in terms of their corresponding Jacobi polynomials. The derivatives formulae for Chebyshev polynomials of third and fourth kinds of any degree and of any order in terms of their corresponding Chebyshev polynomials are deduced as special cases. Some new reduction formulae for summing some terminating hypergeometric functions of unit argument are also deduced. As an application, and with the aid of the new introduced derivatives formulae, an algorithm for solving special sixthorder boundary value problems are implemented with the aid of applying Galerkin method. A numerical example is presented hoping to ascertain the validity and the applicability of the proposed algorithms.

Modified Fractional Variational Iteration Method for Solving the Generalized TimeSpace Fractional Schrödinger Equation
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/964643/
Based on He’s variational iteration method idea, we modified the fractional variational iteration method and applied it to construct some approximate solutions of the generalized timespace fractional Schrödinger equation (GFNLS). The fractional derivatives are described in the sense of Caputo. With the help of symbolic computation, some approximate solutions and their iterative structure of the GFNLS are investigated. Furthermore, the approximate iterative series and numerical results show that the modified fractional variational iteration method is powerful, reliable, and effective when compared with some classic traditional methods such as homotopy analysis method, homotopy perturbation method, adomian decomposition method, and variational iteration method in searching for approximate solutions of the Schrödinger equations.

On a New ThreeStep Class of Methods and Its Acceleration for Nonlinear Equations
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 07:33:03 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/134673/
A class of derivativefree methods without memory for approximating a simple zero of a nonlinear equation is presented. The proposed class uses four function evaluations per iteration with convergence order eight. Therefore, it is an optimal threestep scheme without memory based on KungTraub conjecture. Moreover, the proposed class has an accelerator parameter with the property that it can increase the convergence rate from eight to twelve without any new functional evaluations. Thus, we construct a with memory method that increases considerably efficiency index from to . Illustrations are also included to support the underlying theory.

Global Practical Tracking by Output Feedback for Nonlinear Systems with Unknown Growth Rate and Time Delay
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/713081/
This paper is the further investigation of work of Yan and Liu, 2011, and considers the global practical tracking problem by output feedback for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems with not only unmeasured states dependent growth but also timevarying time delay. Compared with the closely related works, the remarkableness of the paper is that the timevarying time delay and unmeasurable states are permitted in the system nonlinear growth. Motivated by the related tracking results and flexibly using the ideas and techniques of universal control and dead zone, an adaptive outputfeedback tracking controller is explicitly designed with the help of a new LyapunovKrasovskii functional, to make the tracking error prescribed arbitrarily small after a finite time while keeping all the closedloop signals bounded. A numerical example demonstrates the effectiveness of the results.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/498016/
We present a local convergence analysis of inexact Newton method for solving singular systems of equations. Under the hypothesis that the derivative of the function associated with the singular systems satisfies a majorant condition, we obtain that the method is well defined and converges. Our analysis provides a clear relationship between the majorant function and the function associated with the singular systems. It also allows us to obtain an estimate of convergence ball for inexact Newton method and some important special cases.

A Bivariate Chebyshev Spectral Collocation Quasilinearization Method for Nonlinear Evolution Parabolic Equations
Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/581987/
This paper presents a new method for solving higher order nonlinear evolution partial differential equations (NPDEs). The method combines quasilinearisation, the Chebyshev spectral collocation method, and bivariate Lagrange interpolation. In this paper, we use the method to solve several nonlinear evolution equations, such as the modified KdVBurgers equation, highly nonlinear modified KdV equation, Fisher's equation, BurgersFisher equation, BurgersHuxley equation, and the FitzhughNagumo equation. The results are compared with known exact analytical solutions from literature to confirm accuracy, convergence, and effectiveness of the method. There is congruence between the numerical results and the exact solutions to a high order of accuracy. Tables were generated to present the order of accuracy of the method; convergence graphs to verify convergence of the method and error graphs are presented to show the excellent agreement between the results from this study and the known results from literature.

Analysis of an SEIR Epidemic Model with Saturated Incidence and Saturated Treatment Function
Mon, 18 Aug 2014 13:02:14 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/910421/
The dynamics of SEIR epidemic model with saturated incidence rate and saturated treatment function are explored in this paper. The basic reproduction number that determines disease extinction and disease survival is given. The existing threshold conditions of all kinds of the equilibrium points are obtained. Sufficient conditions are established for the existence of backward bifurcation. The local asymptotical stability of equilibrium is verified by analyzing the eigenvalues and using the RouthHurwitz criterion. We also discuss the global asymptotical stability of the endemic equilibrium by autonomous convergence theorem. The study indicates that we should improve the efficiency and enlarge the capacity of the treatment to control the spread of disease. Numerical simulations are presented to support and complement the theoretical findings.

By incorporating the time delay due to the period that computers use antivirus software to clean the virus into the SLBRS model a delayed SLBRS computer virus model is proposed in this paper. The dynamical behaviors which include local stability and Hopf bifurcation are investigated by regarding the delay as bifurcating parameter.

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:55:38 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/410410/
We have given a fourstep, multipoint iterative method without memory for solving nonlinear equations. The method is constructed by using quasiHermite interpolation and has order of convergence sixteen. As this method requires four function evaluations and one derivative evaluation at each step, it is optimal in the sense of the Kung and Traub conjecture. The comparisons are given with some other newly developed sixteenthorder methods. Interval Newton’s method is also used for finding the enough accurate initial approximations. Some figures show the enclosure of finitely many zeroes of nonlinear equations in an interval. Basins of attractions show the effectiveness of the method.

Numerical Analysis of an Galerkin Mixed Finite Element Method for Time Fractional Telegraph Equation
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:04:57 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/371413/
We discuss and analyze an Galerkin mixed finite element (GMFE) method to look for the numerical solution of time fractional telegraph equation. We introduce an auxiliary variable to reduce the original equation into lowerorder coupled equations and then formulate an GMFE scheme with two important variables. We discretize the Caputo time fractional derivatives using the finite difference methods and approximate the spatial direction by applying the GMFE method. Based on the discussion on the theoretical error analysis in norm for the scalar unknown and its gradient in one dimensional case, we obtain the optimal order of convergence in spacetime direction. Further, we also derive the optimal error results for the scalar unknown in norm. Moreover, we derive and analyze the stability of GMFE scheme and give the results of a priori error estimates in two or threedimensional cases. In order to verify our theoretical analysis, we give some results of numerical calculation by using the Matlab procedure.

We use the polynomial least squares method (PLSM), which allows us to compute analytical approximate polynomial solutions for a very general class of strongly nonlinear delay differential equations. The method is tested by computing approximate solutions for several applications including the pantograph equations and a nonlinear timedelay model from biology. The accuracy of the method is illustrated by a comparison with approximate solutions previously computed using other methods.

A Novel Chaotic Map and an Improved ChaosBased Image Encryption Scheme
Sun, 20 Jul 2014 11:12:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/713541/
In this paper, we present a novel approach to create the new chaotic map and propose an improved image encryption scheme based on it. Compared with traditional classic onedimensional chaotic maps like Logistic Map and Tent Map, this newly created chaotic map demonstrates many better chaotic properties for encryption, implied by a much larger maximal Lyapunov exponent. Furthermore, the new chaotic map and Arnold’s Cat Map based image encryption method is designed and proved to be of solid robustness. The simulation results and security analysis indicate that such method not only can meet the requirement of imagine encryption, but also can result in a preferable effectiveness and security, which is usable for general applications.

A New Solution to the Matrix Equation
Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:00:16 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/543610/
We investigate the matrix equation . For convenience, the matrix equation is named as KalmanYakubovichconjugate matrix equation. The explicit
solution is constructed when the above matrix equation has unique solution. And this solution is
stated as a polynomial of coefficient matrices of the matrix equation. Moreover, the explicit solution
is also expressed by the symmetric operator matrix, controllability matrix, and observability matrix.
The proposed approach does not require the coefficient matrices to be in arbitrary canonical form.
At the end of this paper, the numerical example is shown to illustrate the effectiveness of the
proposed method.

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 08:54:35 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/158269/
Analytical results are presented for a steady threedimensional free convection flow in the stagnation point region over a general curved isothermal surface placed in a nanofluid. The momentum equations in x and ydirections, energy balance equation, and nanoparticle concentration equation are reduced to a set of four fully coupled nonlinear differential equations under appropriate similarity transformations. The well known technique optimal homotopy analysis method (OHAM) is used to obtain the exact solution explicitly, whose convergence is then checked in detail. Besides, the effects of the physical parameters, such as the Lewis number, the Brownian motion parameter, the thermophoresis parameter, and the buoyancy ratio on the profiles of velocities, temperature, and concentration, are studied and discussed. Furthermore the local skin friction coefficients in x and ydirections, the local Nusselt number, and the local Sherwood number are examined for various values of the physical parameters.

Temporal and Spatial Evolution Characteristics of Disturbance Wave in a Hypersonic Boundary Layer due to SingleFrequency Entropy Disturbance
Sun, 06 Jul 2014 08:10:21 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/517242/
By using a highorder accurate finite difference scheme, direct numerical simulation of hypersonic flow over an 8° halfwedgeangle blunt wedge under freestream singlefrequency entropy disturbance is conducted; the generation and the temporal and spatial nonlinear evolution of boundary layer disturbance waves are investigated. Results show that, under the freestream singlefrequency entropy disturbance, the entropy state of boundary layer is changed sharply and the disturbance waves within a certain frequency range are induced in the boundary layer. Furthermore, the amplitudes of disturbance waves in the period phase are larger than that in the response phase and ablation phase and the frequency range in the boundary layer in the period phase is narrower than that in these two phases. In addition, the mode competition, dominant mode transformation, and disturbance energy transfer exist among different modes both in temporal and in spatial evolution. The mode competition changes the characteristics of nonlinear evolution of the unstable waves in the boundary layer. The development of the most unstable mode along streamwise relies more on the motivation of disturbance waves in the upstream than that of other modes on this motivation.

Process Design of a Ball Joint, Considering Caulking and PullOut Strength
Thu, 03 Jul 2014 06:33:48 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/971679/
A ball joint for an automobile steering system is a pivot component which is connected to knuckle and lower control arm. The manufacturing process for its caulking comprises spinning and deforming. In this study, the process was simulated by flexible multibody dynamics. The caulking was evaluated qualitatively through numerical analysis and inspecting a plastically deformed shape. The structural responses of a ball joint, namely, pullout strength and stiffness, are commonly investigated in the development process. Thus, following the caulking analysis, the structural responses were considered. In addition, three design variables related to the manufacturing process were defined, and the effects of design variables with respect to pullout strength, caulking depth, and maximum stress were obtained by introducing the DOE using an L9 orthogonal array. Finally, the optimum design maximizing the pullout strength was suggested. For the final design, the caulking quality and the pullout strength were investigated by making six samples and their tests.

A Legendre tauSpectral Method for Solving TimeFractional Heat Equation with Nonlocal Conditions
Wed, 25 Jun 2014 12:36:38 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/706296/
We develop the tauspectral method to solve the timefractional heat equation (TFHE) with nonlocal condition. In order to achieve highly accurate solution of this problem, the operational matrix of fractional integration (described in the RiemannLiouville sense) for shifted Legendre polynomials is investigated in conjunction with tauspectral scheme and the Legendre operational polynomials are used as the base function. The main advantage in using the presented scheme is that it converts the TFHE with nonlocal condition to a system of algebraic equations that simplifies the problem. For demonstrating the validity and applicability of the developed spectral scheme, two numerical examples are presented. The logarithmic graphs of the maximum absolute errors is presented to achieve the exponential convergence of the proposed method. Comparing between our spectral method and other methods ensures that our method is more accurate than those solved similar problem.

HPMBased Dynamic Sparse Grid Approach for PeronaMalik Equation
Mon, 23 Jun 2014 13:44:09 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/417486/
The PeronaMalik equation is a famous image edgepreserved denoising model, which is represented as a nonlinear 2dimension partial differential equation. Based on the homotopy perturbation method (HPM) and the multiscale interpolation theory, a dynamic sparse grid method for PeronaMalik was constructed in this paper. Compared with the traditional multiscale numerical techniques, the proposed method is independent of the basis function. In this method, a dynamic choice scheme of external grid points is proposed to eliminate the artifacts introduced by the partitioning technique. In order to decrease the calculation amount introduced by the change of the external grid points, the Newton interpolation technique is employed instead of the traditional Lagrange interpolation operator, and the condition number of the discretized matrix different equations is taken into account of the choice of the external grid points. Using the new numerical scheme, the time complexity of the sparse grid method for the image denoising is decreased to O(4J+2j) from O(43J), (). The experiment results show that the dynamic choice scheme of the external gird points can eliminate the boundary effect effectively and the efficiency can also be improved greatly comparing with the classical interval wavelets numerical methods.

Matrix Transformations between Certain Sequence Spaces over the NonNewtonian Complex Field
Thu, 19 Jun 2014 07:37:19 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/705818/
In some cases, the most general linear operator between two sequence spaces is given by an infinite
matrix. So the theory of matrix transformations has always been of great interest in the study of sequence spaces.
In the present paper, we introduce the matrix transformations in sequence spaces over the field and characterize
some classes of infinite matrices with respect to the nonNewtonian calculus. Also we give the necessary and
sufficient conditions on an infinite matrix transforming one of the classical sets over to another one.
Furthermore, the concept for sequencetosequence and seriestoseries methods of summability is given with
some illustrated examples.

Therefore the reader may be surprised to learn that there is a uniform relationship between the corresponding operators of this calculus and the classical calculus. Several basic concepts based on nonNewtonian calculus are presented by Grossman (1983), Grossman and Katz (1978), and Grossman (1979). Following Grossman and Katz, in the present paper, we introduce the sets of bounded, convergent, null series and pbounded variation of sequences over the complex field and prove that these are complete. We propose a quite concrete approach based on the notion of KötheToeplitz duals with respect to the nonNewtonian calculus. Finally, we derive some inclusion relationships between Köthe space and solidness.

Implicit Contractive Mappings in Modular Metric and Fuzzy Metric Spaces
Thu, 05 Jun 2014 10:54:40 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/981578/
The notion of modular metric spaces being a natural generalization of classical modulars over linear spaces like Lebesgue, Orlicz, MusielakOrlicz, Lorentz, OrliczLorentz, and CalderonLozanovskii spaces was recently introduced. In this paper we investigate the
existence of fixed points of generalized admissible modular contractive mappings in modular metric spaces. As applications, we derive some new fixed point theorems in partially ordered modular metric spaces, Suzuki type fixed point theorems in modular metric spaces and new fixed point theorems for integral contractions. In last section, we develop an important relation between fuzzy metric
and modular metric and deduce certain new fixed point results in triangular fuzzy metric spaces. Moreover, some examples are provided here to illustrate the usability of the obtained results.

Continuous Hesitant Fuzzy Aggregation Operators and Their Application to Decision Making under IntervalValued Hesitant Fuzzy Setting
Sun, 25 May 2014 12:42:06 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/897304/
Intervalvalued hesitant fuzzy set (IVHFS), which is the further generalization of hesitant fuzzy set, can overcome the barrier that the precise membership degrees are sometimes hard to be specified and permit the membership degrees of an element to a set to have a few different interval values. To efficiently and effectively aggregate the intervalvalued hesitant fuzzy information, in this paper, we investigate the continuous hesitant fuzzy aggregation operators with the aid of continuous OWA operator; the CHFOWA operator and CHFOWG operator are presented and their essential properties are studied in detail. Then, we extend the CHFOW operators to aggregate multiple intervalvalued hesitant fuzzy elements and then develop the weighted CHFOW (WCHFOWA and WCHFOWG) operators, the ordered weighted CHFOW (OWCHFOWA and OWCHFOWG) operators, and the synergetic weighted CHFOWA (SWCHFOWA and SWCHFOWG) operators; some properties are also discussed to support them. Furthermore, a SWCHFOW operatorsbased approach for multicriteria decision making problem is developed. Finally, a practical example involving the evaluation of service quality of hightech enterprises is carried out and some comparative analyses are performed to demonstrate the applicability and effectiveness of the developed approaches.

Output Feedback FractionalOrder Nonsingular Terminal Sliding Mode Control of Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicles
Sun, 25 May 2014 11:59:49 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/838019/
For the 4DOF (degrees of freedom) trajectory tracking control problem of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) in the presence of model uncertainties and external disturbances, a novel output feedback fractionalorder nonsingular terminal sliding mode control (FONTSMC) technique is introduced in light of the equivalent output injection sliding mode observer (SMO) and TSMC principle and fractional calculus technology. The equivalent output injection SMO is applied to reconstruct the full states in finite time. Meanwhile, the FONTSMC algorithm, based on a new proposed fractionalorder switching manifold, is designed to stabilize the tracking error to equilibrium points in finite time. The corresponding stability analysis of the closedloop system is presented using the fractionalorder version of the Lyapunov stability theory. Comparative numerical simulation results are presented and analyzed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. Finally, it is noteworthy that the proposed output feedback FONTSMC technique can be used to control a broad range of nonlinear secondorder dynamical systems in finite time.

We show with examples that our new class of mappings is a real generalization of several known classes of mappings. We also establish fixed point results for such mappings in metric spaces. Applying our new results, we obtain fixed point results on ordinary metric spaces, metric spaces endowed with an arbitrary binary relation, and metric spaces endowed with graph.

Analytic Approximate Solution for FalknerSkan Equation
Wed, 30 Apr 2014 12:16:40 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/617453/
This paper deals with the FalknerSkan nonlinear differential equation. An analytic approximate technique, namely, optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM), is employed to propose a procedure to solve a boundarylayer problem. Our method does not depend upon small parameters and provides us with a convenient way to optimally control the convergence of the approximate solutions. The obtained results reveal that this procedure is very effective, simple, and accurate. A very good agreement was found between our approximate results and numerical solutions, which prove that OHAM is very efficient in practice, ensuring a very rapid convergence after only one iteration.

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 06:44:34 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/454865/
We present a general method of operational nature to analyze and obtain solutions for a variety of equations of mathematical physics and related mathematical problems. We construct inverse differential operators and produce operational identities, involving inverse derivatives and families of generalised orthogonal polynomials, such as Hermite and Laguerre polynomial families. We develop the methodology of inverse and exponential operators, employing them for the study of partial differential equations. Advantages of the operational technique, combined with the use of integral transforms, generating functions with exponentials and their integrals, for solving a wide class of partial derivative equations, related to heat, wave, and transport problems, are demonstrated.

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 10:44:20 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/841891/
The stability and bifurcations of multiple limit cycles for the physical model of thermonuclear reaction in Tokamak are investigated in this paper. The onedimensional GinzburgLandau type perturbed diffusion equations for the density of the plasma and the radial electric field near the plasma edge in Tokamak are established. First, the equations are transformed to the average equations with the method of multiple scales and the average equations turn to be a symmetric perturbed polynomial Hamiltonian system of degree 5. Then, with the bifurcations theory and method of detection function, the qualitative behavior of the unperturbed system and the number of the limit cycles of the perturbed system for certain groups of parameter are analyzed. At last, the stability of the limit cycles is studied and the physical meaning of Tokamak equations under these parameter groups is given.

Cluster Synchronization for a Class of Neutral Complex Dynamical Networks with Markovian Switching
Sun, 27 Apr 2014 10:03:53 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/785706/
cluster synchronization problem for a class of neutral complex dynamical networks (NCDNs) with Markovian switching is investigated in this paper. Both the retarded and neutral delays are considered to be interval mode dependent and time varying. The concept of cluster synchronization is proposed to quantify the attenuation level of synchronization error dynamics against the exogenous disturbance of the NCDNs. Based on a novel Lyapunov functional, by employing some integral inequalities and the nature of convex combination, mode delayrangedependent cluster synchronization criteria are derived in the form of linear matrix inequalities which depend not only on the disturbance attenuation but also on the initial values of the NCDNs. Finally, numerical examples are given
to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed theoretical results.

Identifiability and Identification of Trace Continuous Pollutant Source
Sun, 27 Apr 2014 07:54:02 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/215104/
Accidental pollution events often threaten people’s health and lives, and a pollutant source is very necessary so that prompt remedial actions can be taken. In this paper, a trace continuous pollutant source identification method is developed to identify a sudden continuous emission pollutant source in an enclosed space. The location probability model is set up firstly, and then the identification method is realized by searching a global optimal objective value of the location probability. In order to discuss the identifiability performance of the presented method, a conception of a synergy degree of velocity fields is presented in order to quantitatively analyze the impact of velocity field on the identification performance. Based on this conception, some simulation cases were conducted. The application conditions of this method are obtained according to the simulation studies. In order to verify the presented method, we designed an experiment and identified an unknown source appearing in the experimental space. The result showed that the method can identify a sudden trace continuous source when the studied situation satisfies the application conditions.

Traveling Wave Solutions for Epidemic Cholera Model with DiseaseRelated Death
Sun, 27 Apr 2014 06:52:41 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/409730/
Based on Codeço’s cholera model (2001), an epidemic cholera model that incorporates the pathogen diffusion and diseaserelated death is proposed. The formula for minimal wave speed is given. To prove the existence of traveling wave solutions, an invariant cone is constructed by upper and lower solutions and Schauder’s fixed point theorem is applied. The nonexistence of traveling wave solutions is proved by twosided Laplace transform. However, to apply twosided Laplace transform, the prior estimate of exponential decrease of traveling wave solutions is needed. For this aim, a new method is proposed, which can be applied to reactiondiffusion systems consisting of more than three equations.

Determination of Coefficients of HighOrder Schemes for RiemannLiouville Derivative
Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:02:29 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/402373/
Although there have existed some numerical algorithms for the fractional differential equations, developing highorder methods (i.e., with convergence
order greater than or equal to 2) is just the beginning. Lubich has ever proposed
the highorder schemes when he studied the fractional linear multistep
methods, where he constructed the th order schemes for
the th order RiemannLiouville integral and th order RiemannLiouville derivative. In this paper, we study such a problem and develop recursion
formulas to compute these coefficients in the higherorder schemes. The coefficients
of higherorder schemes are also obtained. We first find that these coefficients are oscillatory, which is similar to Runge’s phenomenon. So, they are not suitable for numerical calculations. Finally, several numerical examples are implemented to testify the efficiency of the numerical schemes for .

On Fourier Series of FuzzyValued Functions
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 12:46:20 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/782652/
Fourier analysis is a powerful tool for many problems, and especially for solving various differential equations of interest in science and engineering. In the present paper since the utilization of Zadeh’s Extension principle is quite difficult in practice, we prefer the idea of level sets in order to construct a fuzzyvalued function on a closed interval via related membership function. We derive uniform convergence of a fuzzyvalued function sequences and series with level sets. Also we study Hukuhara differentiation and Henstock integration of a fuzzyvalued function with some necessary inclusions. Furthermore, Fourier series of periodic fuzzyvalued functions is defined and its complex form is given via sine and cosine fuzzy coefficients with an illustrative example. Finally, by using the Dirichlet kernel and its properties, we especially examine the convergence of Fourier series of fuzzyvalued functions at each point of discontinuity, where onesided limits exist.

Implementation of Steiner Point of Fuzzy Set
Wed, 09 Apr 2014 12:01:44 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/593065/
This paper deals with the implementation of Steiner point of fuzzy set. Some definitions and properties of Steiner point are investigated and extended to fuzzy set. This paper focuses on establishing efficient methods to compute Steiner point of fuzzy set. Two strategies of computing Steiner point of fuzzy set are proposed. One is called linear combination of Steiner points computed by a series of crisp αcut sets of the fuzzy set. The other is an approximate method, which is trying to find the optimal αcut set approaching the fuzzy set. Stability analysis of Steiner point of fuzzy set is also studied. Some experiments on image processing are given, in which the two methods are applied for implementing Steiner point of fuzzy image, and both strategies show their own advantages in computing Steiner point of fuzzy set.

We analyze a fully discrete leapfrog/Galerkin finite
element method for the numerical solution of the space fractional order (fractional for simplicity) diffusion equation. The generalized fractional derivative spaces are
defined in a bounded interval. And some related properties are further discussed for the
following finite element analysis. Then the fractional diffusion equation
is discretized in space by the finite element method and in time by the explicit
leapfrog scheme. For the resulting fully discrete, conditionally stable scheme,
we prove an error bound of finite element accuracy and of second order in
time. Numerical examples are included to confirm our theoretical analysis.

Limit of Riemann Solutions to the Nonsymmetric System of KeyfitzKranzer Type
Thu, 03 Apr 2014 09:37:17 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/287256/
The limit of Riemann solutions to the nonsymmetric system of KeyfitzKranzer type with a scaled pressure is considered for both polytropic gas and generalized Chaplygin gas. In the former case, the delta shock wave can be obtained as the limit of shock wave and contact discontinuity when and the parameter tends to zero. The point is, the delta shock wave is not the one of transport equations, which is obviously different from cases of some other systems such as Euler equations or relativistic Euler equations. For the generalized Chaplygin gas, unlike the polytropic or isothermal gas, there exists a certain critical value depending only on the Riemann initial data, such that when drops to , the delta shock wave appears as , which is actually a delta solution of the same system in one critical case. Then as becomes smaller and goes to zero at last, the delta shock wave solution is the exact one of transport equations. Furthermore, the vacuum states and contact discontinuities can be obtained as the limit of Riemann solutions when and , respectively.

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 09:35:38 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/602453/
Rational cubic and bicubic trigonometric schemes are developed to conserve monotonicity of curve and surface data, respectively. The rational cubic function has four parameters in each subinterval, while the rational bicubic partially blended function has eight parameters in each rectangular patch. The monotonicity of curve and surface data is retained by developing constraints on some of these parameters in description of rational cubic and bicubic trigonometric functions. The remaining parameters are kept free to modify the shape of curve and surface if required. The developed algorithm is verified mathematically and demonstrated graphically.

Two Different Methods for Numerical Solution of the Modified Burgers’ Equation
Thu, 03 Apr 2014 08:56:09 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/780269/
A numerical solution of the modified Burgers’ equation (MBE) is obtained by
using quartic Bspline subdomain finite element method (SFEM) over which the nonlinear term is locally linearized and using quartic Bspline differential quadrature (QBDQM) method. The accuracy and efficiency of the methods are discussed by
computing and error norms. Comparisons are made with those of some earlier papers. The obtained numerical results show that the methods are effective numerical schemes to solve the MBE. A linear stability analysis, based on the von Neumann scheme, shows the SFEM is unconditionally stable. A rate of convergence analysis
is also given for the DQM.

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 08:16:23 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/143983/
This paper is devoted to investigating the numerical solution for a class of fractional diffusionwave equations with a variable coefficient where the fractional derivatives are described in the Caputo sense. The approach is based on the collocation technique where the shifted Chebyshev polynomials in time and the sinc functions in space are utilized, respectively. The problem is reduced to the solution of a system of linear algebraic equations. Through the numerical example, the procedure is tested and the efficiency of the proposed method is confirmed.

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/379897/
Relaxation oscillations of twodimensional planar singular perturbed systems with a layer equation exhibiting canard cycles are studied. The canard cycles under consideration contain two turning points and two jump points. We suppose that there exist three parameters permitting generic breaking at both the turning points and the connecting fast orbit. The conditions of one (resp., two, three) relaxation oscillation near the canard cycles are given by studying a map from the space of phase parameters to the space of breaking parameters.

Bifurcation Analysis in Models for VectorBorne Diseases with Logistic Growth
Tue, 25 Mar 2014 12:00:50 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/195864/
We establish and study vectorborne models with logistic and exponential growth of vector and host populations, respectively. We discuss and analyses the existence and stability of equilibria. The model has backward bifurcation and may have no, one, or two positive equilibria when the basic reproduction number is less than one and one, two, or three endemic equilibria when is greater than one under different conditions. Furthermore, we prove that the diseasefree equilibrium is stable if is less than 1, it is unstable otherwise. At last, by numerical simulation, we find rich dynamical behaviors in the model. By taking the natural death rate of host population as a bifurcation parameter, we find that the system may undergo a backward bifurcation, saddlenode bifurcation, Hopf bifurcation, BogdanovTakens bifurcation, and cusp bifurcation with the saturation parameter varying. The natural death rate of host population is a crucial parameter. If the natural death rate is higher, then the host population and the disease will die out. If it is smaller, then the host and vector population will coexist. If it is middle, the period solution will occur. Thus, with the parameter varying, the disease will spread, occur periodically, and finally become extinct.

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 12:20:29 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/794630/
An accurate computation of the temperature is an important factor in determining the shape of a bubble around a nanowire immersed in a liquid. The study of the physical phenomenon consists in solving a photothermic coupled problem between light and nanowire. The numerical multiphysic model is used to study the variations of the temperature and the shape of the created bubble by illumination of the nanowire. The optimization process, including an adaptive remeshing scheme, is used to solve the problem through a finite element method. The study of the shape evolution of the bubble is made taking into account the physical and geometrical parameters of the nanowire. The relation between the sizes and shapes of the bubble and nanowire is deduced.

Bifurcations of Orbit and Inclination Flips Heteroclinic Loop with Nonhyperbolic Equilibria
Sun, 23 Mar 2014 13:05:40 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/585609/
The bifurcations of
heteroclinic loop with one nonhyperbolic equilibrium and one
hyperbolic saddle are considered, where the nonhyperbolic
equilibrium is supposed to undergo a transcritical bifurcation;
moreover, the heteroclinic loop has an orbit flip and an inclination
flip. When the nonhyperbolic equilibrium does not undergo a
transcritical bifurcation, we establish the coexistence and
noncoexistence of the periodic orbits and homoclinic orbits. While
the nonhyperbolic equilibrium undergoes the transcritical
bifurcation, we obtain the noncoexistence of the periodic orbits and
homoclinic orbits and the existence of two or three heteroclinic
orbits.

A Domain Decomposition Method for Time Fractional ReactionDiffusion Equation
Wed, 19 Mar 2014 09:01:53 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/681707/
The computational complexity of onedimensional time fractional reactiondiffusion equation is compared with for classical integer reactiondiffusion equation. Parallel computing is used to overcome this challenge. Domain decomposition method (DDM) embodies large potential for parallelization of the numerical solution for fractional equations and serves as a basis for distributed, parallel computations. A domain decomposition algorithm for time fractional reactiondiffusion equation with implicit finite difference method is proposed. The domain decomposition algorithm keeps the same parallelism but needs much fewer iterations, compared with Jacobi iteration in each time step. Numerical experiments are used to verify the efficiency of the obtained algorithm.

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 12:21:34 +0000

In continuum onedimensional space, a coupled directed continuous time random walk model is proposed, where the random walker jumps toward one direction and the waiting time between jumps affects the subsequent jump. In the proposed model, the LaplaceLaplace transform of the probability density function of finding the walker at position at time is completely determined by the Laplace transform of the probability density function of the waiting time. In terms of the probability density function of the waiting time in the Laplace domain, the limit distribution of the random process and the corresponding evolving equations are derived.

A Parallel Algorithm for the TwoDimensional Time Fractional Diffusion Equation with Implicit Difference Method
Wed, 12 Mar 2014 12:53:01 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/219580/
It is very time consuming to solve fractional differential equations. The computational complexity of twodimensional fractional differential equation (2DTFDE) with iterative implicit finite difference method is . In this paper, we present a parallel algorithm for 2DTFDE and give an indepth discussion about this algorithm. A task distribution model and data layout with virtual boundary are designed for this parallel algorithm. The experimental results show that the parallel algorithm compares well with the exact solution. The parallel algorithm on single Intel Xeon X5540 CPU runs 3.16–4.17 times faster than the serial algorithm on single CPU core. The parallel efficiency of 81 processes is up to 88.24% compared with 9 processes on a distributed memory cluster system. We do think that the parallel computing technology will become a very basic method for the computational intensive fractional applications in the near future.

fractional partial differential equations in the sense of the modified
RiemannLiouville derivative. We apply the Expfunction method to the
time fractional SharmaTassoOlver equation, the space fractional Burgers
equation, and the time fractional fmKdV equation. As a result, we obtain some
new exact solutions.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/593642/
This work concerns how to find the double periodic form of approximate solutions of the perturbed combined KdV (CKdV) equation with variable coefficients by using the homotopic mapping method. The obtained solutions may degenerate into the approximate solutions of hyperbolic function form and the approximate solutions of trigonometric function form in the limit cases. Moreover, the first order approximate solutions and the second order approximate solutions of the variable coefficients CKdV equation in perturbation are also induced.

On a New Efficient SteffensenLike Iterative Class by Applying a Suitable SelfAccelerator Parameter
Mon, 03 Mar 2014 08:39:12 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/769758/
It is attempted to present an efficient and free derivative class of Steffensenlike methods for solving nonlinear equations. To this end, firstly, we construct an optimal eighthorder threestep uniparameter without memory of iterative methods. Then the selfaccelerator parameter is estimated using Newton’s
interpolation in such a way that it improves its convergence order from 8 to 12 without any extra function evaluation. Therefore, its efficiency index is increased from 81/4 to 121/4 which is the main feature of this class. To show applicability of the proposed methods, some numerical illustrations are presented.

VIMBased Dynamic Sparse Grid Approach to Partial Differential Equations
Thu, 27 Feb 2014 16:28:30 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/390148/
Combining the variational iteration method (VIM) with the sparse grid theory, a dynamic sparse grid approach for nonlinear PDEs is proposed in this paper. In this method, a multilevel interpolation operator is constructed based on the sparse grids theory firstly. The operator is based on the linear combination of the basic functions and independent of them. Second, by means of the precise integration method (PIM), the VIM is developed to solve the nonlinear system of ODEs which is obtained from the discretization of the PDEs. In addition, a dynamic choice scheme on both of the inner and external grid points is proposed. It is different from the traditional interval wavelet collocation method in which the choice of both of the inner and external grid points is dynamic. The numerical experiments show that our method is better than the traditional wavelet collocation method, especially in solving the PDEs with the Nuemann boundary conditions.

A class of elliptic boundary value problem in an exterior domain is considered under some conditions concerning the first eigenvalue of the relevant linear operator, where the variables of nonlinear term need not to be separated. Several new theorems on the existence and multiplicity of positive radial solutions are obtained by means of fixed point index theory. Our conclusions are essential improvements of the results in Lan and Webb (1998), Lee (1997), Mao and Xue (2002), Stańczy (2000), and Han and Wang (2006).

Nonprobabilistic Solution of Uncertain Vibration Equation of Large Membranes Using Adomian Decomposition Method
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 09:32:29 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/308205/
This paper proposes a new technique based on double parametric form of fuzzy numbers to handle the uncertain vibration equation for very large membrane for different particular cases. Uncertainties present in the initial condition and the wave velocity of free vibration are modelled through Gaussian convex normalised fuzzy set. Using the single parametric form of fuzzy number, the original fuzzy vibration equation is converted first to an interval fuzzy vibration equation. Next this equation is transformed to crisp form by applying double parametric form of fuzzy numbers. Finally the same governing equation is solved by Adomian decomposition method (ADM) symbolically to obtain the uncertain bounds. The present methods are very simple and effective. Obtained results are depicted in terms of plots to show the efficiency and powerfulness of the present analysis. Results obtained by the methods with new techniques are compared with existing results in special cases.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/949718/
We present the prevention of avian influenza pandemic by adjusting multiple control functions in the humantohuman transmittable avian influenza model. First we show the existence of the optimal control problem; then by using both analytical and
numerical techniques, we investigate the costeffective control effects for the prevention of transmission of disease. To do this, we use three control functions, the effort to reduce the number of contacts with human infected with mutant avian influenza, the antiviral treatment of infected individuals, and the effort to reduce the number of infected birds. We completely characterized the optimal control and compute numerical solution of the optimality system by using an iterative method.

Analysis of EyringPowell Fluid in Helical Screw Rheometer
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 08:07:51 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/143968/
This paper aims to study the flow of an incompressible, isothermal EyringPowell fluid in a helical screw rheometer. The complicated geometry of the helical screw rheometer is simplified by “unwrapping or flattening” the channel, lands, and the outside rotating barrel, assuming the width of the channel is larger as compared to the depth. The developed second order nonlinear differential equations are solved by using Adomian decomposition method. Analytical expressions are obtained for the velocity profiles, shear stresses, shear at wall, force exerted on fluid, volume flow rates, and average velocity. The effect of nonNewtonian parameters, pressure gradients, and flight angle on the velocity profiles is noticed with the help of graphical representation. The observation confirmed the vital role of involved parameters during the extrusion process.

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 00:00:00 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/431978/
We construct some results on the regularity of solutions and the approximate controllability for neutral functional differential equations with unbounded principal operators in Hilbert spaces. In order to establish the controllability of the neutral equations, we first consider the existence and regularity of solutions of the neutral control system by using fractional power of operators and the local Lipschitz continuity of nonlinear term. Our purpose is to obtain the existence of solutions and the approximate controllability for neutral functional differential control systems without using many of the strong restrictions considered in the previous literature. Finally we give a simple example to which our main result can be applied.

Approximate Series Solution of Nonlinear Singular Boundary Value Problems Arising in Physiology
Thu, 20 Feb 2014 08:54:44 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/945872/
We introduce an efficient recursive scheme based on Adomian decomposition
method (ADM) for solving nonlinear singular boundary value problems. This approach is based on a modification of the ADM; here we use all the boundary conditions to derive an integral equation before establishing the recursive scheme for the solution components. In fact, we develop the recursive scheme without any undetermined coefficients while computing the solution components. Unlike the classical ADM, the proposed method avoids solving a sequence of nonlinear algebraic or transcendental equations for the undetermined coefficients. The approximate solution is obtained in the form of series with easily calculable components. The uniqueness of the solution is discussed. The convergence and error
analysis of the proposed method are also established. The accuracy and reliability of the proposed method are examined by four numerical examples.

We propose and analyze a new expanded mixed element method, whose gradient belongs to the simple square integrable space instead of the classical H(div; Ω) space of Chen’s expanded mixed element method. We study the new expanded mixed element method for convectiondominated Sobolev equation, prove the existence and uniqueness for finite element solution, and introduce a new expanded mixed projection. We derive the optimal a priori error estimates in norm for the scalar unknown and a priori error estimates in norm for its gradient λ and its flux σ. Moreover, we obtain the optimal a priori error estimates in norm for the scalar unknown u. Finally, we obtained some numerical results to illustrate efficiency of the new method.

The spectral stability and the Fourier stability analysis of the difference scheme are shown. Finally a detailed numerical analysis, including tables, figures, and error comparison, is given to demonstrate the theoretical results and high accuracy of the proposed scheme.

Some New Traveling Wave Exact Solutions of the (2+1)Dimensional BoitiLeonPempinelli Equations
Tue, 11 Feb 2014 11:44:48 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/743254/
We employ the complex method to obtain all meromorphic exact solutions of complex (2+1)dimensional BoitiLeonPempinelli equations (BLP system of equations). The idea introduced in this paper can be applied to other nonlinear evolution equations.
Our results show that all rational and simply periodic traveling wave exact solutions of the equations (BLP) are solitary wave solutions, the complex method is simpler than other methods, and there exist some rational solutions and simply periodic solutions which are not only new but also not degenerated successively by the elliptic function solutions. We believe that this method should play an important role for finding exact solutions in the mathematical physics. For these new traveling wave solutions, we give some computer simulations to illustrate our main results.

Approximation of Bivariate Functions via Smooth Extensions
Mon, 10 Feb 2014 13:53:22 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/102062/
For a smooth bivariate function defined on a general domain with arbitrary shape, it is
difficult to do Fourier approximation or wavelet approximation. In order to solve these problems, in this paper,
we give an extension of the bivariate function on a general domain with arbitrary shape to a smooth, periodic
function in the whole space or to a smooth, compactly supported function in the whole space. These smooth
extensions have simple and clear representations which are determined by this bivariate function and some
polynomials. After that, we expand the smooth, periodic function into a Fourier series or a periodic wavelet
series or we expand the smooth, compactly supported function into a wavelet series. Since our extensions are
smooth, the obtained Fourier coefficients or wavelet coefficients decay very fast. Since our extension tools are
polynomials, the moment theorem shows that a lot of wavelet coefficients vanish. From this, with the help of
wellknown approximation theorems, using our extension methods, the Fourier approximation and the wavelet
approximation of the bivariate function on the general domain with small error are obtained.

Finite difference technique is applied to numerical solution of the initialboundary value problem for the semilinear delay Sobolev or pseudoparabolic equation. By the method of integral identities twolevel difference scheme is constructed. For the time integration the implicit rule is being used. Based on the method of energy estimates the fully discrete scheme is shown to be absolutely stable and convergent of order two in space and of order one in time. The error estimates are obtained in the discrete norm. Some numerical results confirming the expected behavior of the method are shown.

On the Long Time Simulation of ReactionDiffusion Equations with Delay
Mon, 03 Feb 2014 06:42:28 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/186802/
For a consistent numerical method to be practically useful, it is widely accepted that it must preserve the asymptotic stability of the original continuous problem. However, in this study, we show that it may lead to unreliable numerical solutions in long time simulation even if a classical numerical method gives a larger stability region than that of the original continuous problem. Some numerical experiments on the reactiondiffusion equations with delay are presented to confirm our findings. Finally, some open problems on the subject are proposed.

Nature Inspired Computational Technique for the Numerical Solution of Nonlinear Singular Boundary Value Problems Arising in Physiology
Sun, 02 Feb 2014 07:20:04 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/2014/837021/
We present a hybrid heuristic computing method for the numerical solution of nonlinear singular boundary value problems arising in physiology. The approximate solution is deduced as a linear combination of some log sigmoid basis functions. A fitness function representing the sum of the mean square error of the given nonlinear ordinary differential equation (ODE) and its boundary conditions is formulated. The optimization of the unknown adjustable parameters contained in the fitness function is performed by the hybrid heuristic computation algorithm based on genetic algorithm (GA), interior point algorithm (IPA), and active set algorithm (ASA). The efficiency and the viability of the proposed method are confirmed by solving three examples from physiology. The obtained approximate solutions are found in excellent agreement with the exact solutions as well as some conventional numerical solutions.
