Fixed-Point Theorems for -Contraction in Generalized Asymmetric Metric Spaces
In the last few decades, a lot of generalizations of the Banach contraction principle had been introduced. In this paper, we present the notion of -contraction and -contraction in generalized asymmetric metric spaces to study the existence and uniqueness of the fixed point for them. We will also provide some illustrative examples. Our results improve many existing results.
New Robust Regularized Shrinkage Regression for High-Dimensional Image Recovery and Alignment via Affine Transformation and Tikhonov Regularization
In this work, a new robust regularized shrinkage regression method is proposed to recover and align high-dimensional images via affine transformation and Tikhonov regularization. To be more resilient with occlusions and illuminations, outliers, and heavy sparse noises, the new proposed approach incorporates novel ideas affine transformations and Tikhonov regularization into high-dimensional images. The highly corrupted, distorted, or misaligned images can be adjusted through the use of affine transformations and Tikhonov regularization term to ensure a trustful image decomposition. These novel ideas are very essential, especially in pruning out the potential impacts of annoying effects in high-dimensional images. Then, finding optimal variables through a set of affine transformations and Tikhonov regularization term is first casted as mathematical and statistical convex optimization programming techniques. Afterward, a fast alternating direction method for multipliers (ADMM) algorithm is applied, and the new equations are established to update the parameters involved and the affine transformations iteratively in the form of the round-robin manner. Moreover, the convergence of these new updating equations is scrutinized as well, and the proposed method has less time computation as compared to the state-of-the-art works. Conducted simulations have shown that the new robust method surpasses to the baselines for image alignment and recovery relying on some public datasets.
Efficient Algorithms on Multicommodity Flow over Time Problems with Partial Lane Reversals
The multicommodity flow problem arises when several different commodities are transshipped from specific supply nodes to the corresponding demand nodes through the arcs of an underlying capacity network. The maximum flow over time problem concerns to maximize the sum of commodity flows in a given time horizon. It becomes the earliest arrival flow problem if it maximizes the flow at each time step. The earliest arrival transshipment problem is the one that satisfies specified supplies and demands. These flow over time problems are computationally hard. By reverting the orientation of lanes towards the demand nodes, the outbound lane capacities can be increased. We introduce a partial lane reversal approach in the class of multicommodity flow problems. Moreover, a polynomial-time algorithm for the maximum static flow problem and pseudopolynomial algorithms for the earliest arrival transshipment and maximum dynamic flow problems are presented. Also, an approximation solution to the latter problem is obtained in polynomial-time.
On the Relationship between Jordan Algebras and Their Universal Enveloping Algebras
The relationship between JW-algebras (resp. JC-algebras) and their universal enveloping von Neumann algebras (resp. -algebras) can be described as significant and influential. Examples of numerous relationships have been established. In this article, we established a relationship between the set of split faces of the state space (resp. normal states) of a JC-algebra (resp. a JW-algebra) and the set of split faces of the state space (resp. normal states) of its universal enveloping -algebra (resp. von Neumann algebra), and we tied up this relationship with the correspondence between the classes of invariant faces, closed ideals, and central projections of these Jordan algebras and of their universal enveloping algebras.

In this paper, we present a sufficient condition for the output reachability of discrete-time positive switched systems. Besides, necessary and sufficient conditions for output monomial reachability and zero output controllability are provided. Further, some examples are shown.
Fixed-Point Theorem for Isometric Self-Mappings
In this paper, we derive a fixed-point theorem for self-mappings. That is, it is shown that every isometric self-mapping on a weakly compact convex subset of a strictly convex Banach space has a fixed point.
