6. Semigroups, boundary value problems and Markov processes

Taira, Kazuaki

2014-01-01

A careful and accessible exposition of functional analytic methods in stochastic analysis is provided in this book. It focuses on the interrelationship between three subjects in analysis: Markov processes, semi groups and elliptic boundary value problems. The author studies a general class of elliptic boundary value problems for second-order, Waldenfels integro-differential operators in partial differential equations and proves that this class of elliptic boundary value problems provides a general class of Feller semigroups in functional analysis. As an application, the author constructs a general class of Markov processes in probability in which a Markovian particle moves both by jumps and continuously in the state space until it 'dies' at the time when it reaches the set where the particle is definitely absorbed. Augmenting the 1st edition published in 2004, this edition includes four new chapters and eight re-worked and expanded chapters. It is amply illustrated and all chapters are rounded off with Notes ...

7. Boundary value problems and medical imaging

The application of appropriate transform pairs, such as the Fourier, the Laplace, the sine, the cosine and the Mellin transforms, provides the most well known method for constructing analytical solutions to a large class of physically significant boundary value problems. However, this method has several limitations. In particular, it requires the given PDE, domain and boundary conditions to be separable, and also may not be applicable if the given boundary value problem is non-self-adjoint. Furthermore, it expresses the solution as either an integral or an infinite series, neither of which are uniformly convergent on the boundary of the domain (for nonvanishing boundary conditions), which renders such expressions unsuitable for numerical computations. Here, we review a method recently introduced by the first author which can be applied to certain nonseparable and non-self-adjoint problems. Furthermore, this method expresses the solution as an integral in the complex plane which is uniformly convergent on the boundary of the domain. This method, which also suggests new numerical techniques, is illustrated for both evolution and elliptic PDEs. Athough this method was first applied to certain nonlinear PDEs called integrable and was originally formulated in terms of the so-called Lax pairs, it can actually be applied to linear PDEs without the need to analyse the associated Lax pair. The existence of Lax pairs is used here in order to motivate a related development, namely the emergence of a novel formalism for analysing certain inverse problems arising in medical imaging. Examples include PET and SPECT

14. The GPS-gravimetry boundary value problem

YU; Jinhai; ZHANG; Chuanding

2005-01-01

How to determine the earth's external gravity field with the accuracy of O(T2) by making use of GPS data and gravity values measured on the earth's surface is dealt with in this paper. There are two main steps: to extend these measured values on the earth's surface onto the reference ellipsoid at first and then to seek for the integral solution of the external Neumann problem outside the ellipsoid. In addition, the corresponding judging criteria of accuracy to solve the GPS-gravity boundary value problem are established. The integral solution given in the paper not only contains all frequency-spectral information of the gravity field with the accuracy of O(T2),but is also easily computed. In fact, the solution has great significance for both theory and practice.

15. Complementary Lidstone Interpolation and Boundary Value Problems

Ravi P. Agarwal

2009-01-01

Full Text Available We shall introduce and construct explicitly the complementary Lidstone interpolating polynomial P2m(t of degree 2m, which involves interpolating data at the odd-order derivatives. For P2m(t we will provide explicit representation of the error function, best possible error inequalities, best possible criterion for the convergence of complementary Lidstone series, and a quadrature formula with best possible error bound. Then, these results will be used to establish existence and uniqueness criteria, and the convergence of Picard's, approximate Picard's, quasilinearization, and approximate quasilinearization iterative methods for the complementary Lidstone boundary value problems which consist of a (2m+1th order differential equation and the complementary Lidstone boundary conditions.

16. Spectral integration of linear boundary value problems

Viswanath, Divakar

2012-01-01

Spectral integration is a method for solving linear boundary value problems which uses the Chebyshev series representation of functions to avoid the numerical discretization of derivatives. It is occasionally attributed to Zebib (J. of Computational Physics vol. 53 (1984), p. 443-455) and more often to Greengard (SIAM J. on Numerical Analysis vol. 28 (1991), p. 1071-1080). Its advantage is believed to be its relative immunity to errors that arise when nearby grid points are used to approximate derivatives. In this paper, we reformulate the method of spectral integration by changing it in four different ways. The changes consist of a more convenient integral formulation, a different way to treat and interpret boundary conditions, treatment of higher order problems in factored form, and the use of piecewise Chebyshev grid points. Our formulation of spectral integration is more flexible and powerful as show by its ability to solve a problem that would otherwise take 8192 grid points using only 96 grid points. So...

17. Boundary value problems and Markov processes

Taira, Kazuaki

2009-01-01

This volume is devoted to a thorough and accessible exposition on the functional analytic approach to the problem of construction of Markov processes with Ventcel' boundary conditions in probability theory. Analytically, a Markovian particle in a domain of Euclidean space is governed by an integro-differential operator, called a Waldenfels operator, in the interior of the domain, and it obeys a boundary condition, called the Ventcel' boundary condition, on the boundary of the domain. Probabilistically, a Markovian particle moves both by jumps and continuously in the state space and it obeys the Ventcel' boundary condition, which consists of six terms corresponding to the diffusion along the boundary, the absorption phenomenon, the reflection phenomenon, the sticking (or viscosity) phenomenon, the jump phenomenon on the boundary, and the inward jump phenomenon from the boundary. In particular, second-order elliptic differential operators are called diffusion operators and describe analytically strong Markov pr...

18. A selfadjoint hyperbolic boundary-value problem

Nezam Iraniparast

2003-02-01

Full Text Available We consider the eigenvalue wave equation $$u_{tt} - u_{ss} = lambda pu,$$ subject to $u(s,0 = 0$, where $uinmathbb{R}$, is a function of $(s, t in mathbb{R}^2$, with $tge 0$. In the characteristic triangle $T ={(s,t:0leq tleq 1, tleq sleq 2-t}$ we impose a boundary condition along characteristics so that $$alpha u(t,t-beta frac{partial u}{partial n_1}(t,t = alpha u(1+t,1-t +betafrac{partial u}{partial n_2}(1+t,1-t,quad 0leq tleq1.$$ The parameters $alpha$ and $beta$ are arbitrary except for the condition that they are not both zero. The two vectors $n_1$ and $n_2$ are the exterior unit normals to the characteristic boundaries and $frac{partial u}{partial n_1}$, $frac{partial u}{partial n_2}$ are the normal derivatives in those directions. When $pequiv 1$ we will show that the above characteristic boundary value problem has real, discrete eigenvalues and corresponding eigenfunctions that are complete and orthogonal in $L_2(T$. We will also investigate the case where $pgeq 0$ is an arbitrary continuous function in $T$.

20. Boundary value problems on product domains

Ehsani, Dariush

2005-01-01

We consider the inhomogeneous Dirichlet problem on product domains. The main result is the asymptotic expansion of the solution in terms of increasing smoothness up to the boundary. In particular, we show the exact nature of the singularities of the solution at singularities of the boundary by constructing singular functions which make up an asymptotic expansion of the solution.

1. Geodesic boundary value problems with symmetry

Cotter, C J

2009-01-01

This paper shows how left and right actions of Lie groups on a manifold may be used to complement one another in a variational reformulation of optimal control problems equivalently as geodesic boundary value problems with symmetry. We prove an equivalence theorem to this effect and illustrate it with several examples. In finite-dimensions, we discuss geodesic flows on the Lie groups SO(3) and SE(3) under the left and right actions of their respective Lie algebras. In an infinite-dimensional example, we discuss optimal large-deformation matching of one closed curve to another embedded in the same plane. In the curve-matching example, the manifold $\\Emb(S^1, \\mathbb{R}^2)$ comprises the space of closed curves $S^1$ embedded in the plane $\\mathbb{R}^2$. The diffeomorphic left action $\\Diff(\\mathbb{R}^2)$ deforms the curve by a smooth invertible time-dependent transformation of the coordinate system in which it is embedded, while leaving the parameterisation of the curve invariant. The diffeomorphic right action...

2. Spherical gravitational curvature boundary-value problem

Šprlák, Michal; Novák, Pavel

2016-08-01

Values of scalar, vector and second-order tensor parameters of the Earth's gravitational field have been collected by various sensors in geodesy and geophysics. Such observables have been widely exploited in different parametrization methods for the gravitational field modelling. Moreover, theoretical aspects of these quantities have extensively been studied and well understood. On the other hand, new sensors for observing gravitational curvatures, i.e., components of the third-order gravitational tensor, are currently under development. As the gravitational curvatures represent new types of observables, their exploitation for modelling of the Earth's gravitational field is a subject of this study. Firstly, the gravitational curvature tensor is decomposed into six parts which are expanded in terms of third-order tensor spherical harmonics. Secondly, gravitational curvature boundary-value problems defined for four combinations of the gravitational curvatures are formulated and solved in spectral and spatial domains. Thirdly, properties of the corresponding sub-integral kernels are investigated. The presented mathematical formulations reveal some important properties of the gravitational curvatures and extend the so-called Meissl scheme, i.e., an important theoretical framework that relates various parameters of the Earth's gravitational field.

4. State-dependent impulses boundary value problems on compact interval

Rachůnková, Irena

2015-01-01

This book offers the reader a new approach to the solvability of boundary value problems with state-dependent impulses and provides recently obtained existence results for state dependent impulsive problems with general linear boundary conditions. It covers fixed-time impulsive boundary value problems both regular and singular and deals with higher order differential equations or with systems that are subject to general linear boundary conditions. We treat state-dependent impulsive boundary value problems, including a new approach giving effective conditions for the solvability of the Dirichlet problem with one state-dependent impulse condition and we show that the depicted approach can be extended to problems with a finite number of state-dependent impulses. We investigate the Sturm–Liouville boundary value problem for a more general right-hand side of a differential equation. Finally, we offer generalizations to higher order differential equations or differential systems subject to general linear boundary...

For a linear case, by the discrete variational theory, a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence, uniqueness and multiplicity of the solutions is also established.

17. Local solution for a class of mixed boundary value problems

A local method is developed for solving locally partial differential equations with mixed boundary conditions. The method is based on a heuristic idea, properties of diffusion processes, stopping times and the Ito formula for semimartingales. According to the heuristic idea, the diffusion process used for solving locally a partial differential with mixed boundary conditions is stopped when it reaches a Neumann boundary and then restarted inside the domain of definition of this equation at a point depending on the Neumann conditions. The proposed method is illustrated and its accuracy assessed by two simple numerical examples solving locally mixed boundary value problems in one and two space dimensions

In this paper we study nonlinear second-order differential inclusions involving the ordinary vector -Laplacian, a multivalued maximal monotone operator and nonlinear multivalued boundary conditions. Our framework is general and unifying and incorporates gradient systems, evolutionary variational inequalities and the classical boundary value problems, namely the Dirichlet, the Neumann and the periodic problems. Using notions and techniques from the nonlinear operatory theory and from multivalued analysis, we obtain solutions for both the convex' and nonconvex' problems. Finally, we present the cases of special interest, which fit into our framework, illustrating the generality of our results.

Gusev, A. A.; Hai, L. L.; Chuluunbaatar, O.; Vinitsky, S. I.; Derbov, V. L.

2016-02-01

We propose a computational scheme for solving the eigenvalue problem for an elliptic differential equation in a two-dimensional domain with Dirichlet boundary conditions. The solution is sought in the form of Kantorovich expansion over the basis functions of one of the independent variables with the second variable treated as a parameter. The basis functions are calculated as solutions of the parametric eigenvalue problem for an ordinary second-order differential equation. As a result, the initial problem is reduced to a boundary-value problem for a set of self-adjoint second-order differential equations for functions of the second independent variable. The discrete formulation of the problem is implemented using the finite element method with Hermite interpolation polynomials. The effciency of the calculation scheme is shown by benchmark calculations for a square membrane with a degenerate spectrum.

Discussion of the critical state concept in terms of an incremental theory of plasticity in granular (soil) media, and formulation of the governing equations which are convenient for a computational scheme using the finite element method.

9. Iterative schemes for nonsymmetric and indefinite elliptic boundary value problems

The purpose of this paper is twofold. The first is to describe some simple and robust iterative schemes for nonsymmetric and indefinite elliptic boundary value problems. The schemes are based in the Sobolev space H (Ω) and require minimal hypotheses. The second is to develop algorithms utilizing a coarse-grid approximation. This leads to iteration matrices whose eigenvalues lie in the right half of the complex plane. In fact, for symmetric indefinite problems, the iteration is reduced to a well-conditioned symmetric positive definite system which can be solved by conjugate gradient interation. Applications of the general theory as well as numerical examples are given. 20 refs., 8 tabs

We consider, first, the case which F has values in ℝ and we establish the existence of extremal solutions in the order interval determined by the lower and the upper solution. Then we prove the existence of solutions for a Dirichlet problem in the case in which F takes their values in a Hilbert space.

12. Fractional Extensions of some Boundary Value Problems in Oil Strata

Mridula Garg; Alka Rao

2007-05-01

In the present paper, we solve three boundary value problems related to the temperature field in oil strata - the fractional extensions of the incomplete lumped formulation and lumped formulation in the linear case and the fractional generalization of the incomplete lumped formulation in the radial case. By using the Caputo differintegral operator and the Laplace transform, the solutions are obtained in integral forms where the integrand is expressed in terms of the convolution of some auxiliary functions of Wright function type. A generalization of the Laplace transform convolution theorem, known as Efros’ theorem is widely used.

We consider boundary-value problems for x-analytical functions of a complex variable z = x + iy in a number of domains. Limit values with the weight (ln x){sup {minus}1} are given for the real part of the x-analytical function on the sections of the boundary that follow the imaginary axis, and simple limits are given for the real part of the x-analytical functions on the part of the boundary outside the imaginary axis. The apparatus of integral representations of x-analytical functions is applied to obtain a solution of the problem in quadratures.

15. An Adaptive Pseudospectral Method for Fractional Order Boundary Value Problems

2012-01-01

Full Text Available An adaptive pseudospectral method is presented for solving a class of multiterm fractional boundary value problems (FBVP which involve Caputo-type fractional derivatives. The multiterm FBVP is first converted into a singular Volterra integrodifferential equation (SVIDE. By dividing the interval of the problem to subintervals, the unknown function is approximated using a piecewise interpolation polynomial with unknown coefficients which is based on shifted Legendre-Gauss (ShLG collocation points. Then the problem is reduced to a system of algebraic equations, thus greatly simplifying the problem. Further, some additional conditions are considered to maintain the continuity of the approximate solution and its derivatives at the interface of subintervals. In order to convert the singular integrals of SVIDE into nonsingular ones, integration by parts is utilized. In the method developed in this paper, the accuracy can be improved either by increasing the number of subintervals or by increasing the degree of the polynomial on each subinterval. Using several examples including Bagley-Torvik equation the proposed method is shown to be efficient and accurate.

18. The boundary value problem for discrete analytic functions

Skopenkov, Mikhail

2013-06-01

This paper is on further development of discrete complex analysis introduced by R.Isaacs, J.Ferrand, R.Duffin, and C.Mercat. We consider a graph lying in the complex plane and having quadrilateral faces. A function on the vertices is called discrete analytic, if for each face the difference quotients along the two diagonals are equal.We prove that the Dirichlet boundary value problem for the real part of a discrete analytic function has a unique solution. In the case when each face has orthogonal diagonals we prove that this solution uniformly converges to a harmonic function in the scaling limit. This solves a problem of S.Smirnov from 2010. This was proved earlier by R.Courant-K.Friedrichs-H.Lewy and L.Lusternik for square lattices, by D.Chelkak-S.Smirnov and implicitly by P.G.Ciarlet-P.-A.Raviart for rhombic lattices.In particular, our result implies uniform convergence of the finite element method on Delaunay triangulations. This solves a problem of A.Bobenko from 2011. The methodology is based on energy estimates inspired by alternating-current network theory. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

6. Ray tracing in relativistic astrometry: the boundary value problem

Relativistic astrometry has recently become an active field of research owing to new observational technologies which allow for accuracies of a microarcsecond. To assure this accuracy in data analysis, one has to perform ray tracing in a general relativistic framework including terms of the order of (v/c)3 in the weak field treatment of Einstein equations applied to the solar system. Basic to the solution of a ray tracing problem are the boundary conditions that one has to fix from the observational data. In this paper we solve this problem to (v/c)3 in a fully analytical way

7. A kernel-free boundary integral method for elliptic boundary value problems

Ying, Wenjun; Henriquez, Craig S.

2007-12-01

This paper presents a class of kernel-free boundary integral (KFBI) methods for general elliptic boundary value problems (BVPs). The boundary integral equations reformulated from the BVPs are solved iteratively with the GMRES method. During the iteration, the boundary and volume integrals involving Green's functions are approximated by structured grid-based numerical solutions, which avoids the need to know the analytical expressions of Green's functions. The KFBI method assumes that the larger regular domain, which embeds the original complex domain, can be easily partitioned into a hierarchy of structured grids so that fast elliptic solvers such as the fast Fourier transform (FFT) based Poisson/Helmholtz solvers or those based on geometric multigrid iterations are applicable. The structured grid-based solutions are obtained with standard finite difference method (FDM) or finite element method (FEM), where the right hand side of the resulting linear system is appropriately modified at irregular grid nodes to recover the formal accuracy of the underlying numerical scheme. Numerical results demonstrating the efficiency and accuracy of the KFBI methods are presented. It is observed that the number of GMRES iterations used by the method for solving isotropic and moderately anisotropic BVPs is independent of the sizes of the grids that are employed to approximate the boundary and volume integrals. With the standard second-order FEMs and FDMs, the KFBI method shows a second-order convergence rate in accuracy for all of the tested Dirichlet/Neumann BVPs when the anisotropy of the diffusion tensor is not too strong.

18. A boundary value problem for first order strictly hyperbolic systems on the plane

Soldatov, Alexander P.; Zhura, Nikolay A.

2015-11-01

Boundary value problems, more precisely Dirichlet's problem for a string equation, or for an equivalent system of first order equations have been first studied in the first half of last century ([1] - [9]). The interest to these problems has been big ever since, see e.g. [10, 11]. All these papers have looked into the boundary value problems in a finite domains in the plane. Strictly hyperbolic systems with more than two characteristics in infinite domains, have been studied in [12, 13]. The question of boundary value problems for a hyperbolic system of equations with more than two characteristics in finite domain on the plane, when a boundary conditions are prescribed at a whole boundary of the domain, evidently remained open. In this paper, we study this problem in a finite domain on the plane for a hyperbolic system of equations of the first order with constant coefficients and with three mutually distinct characteristics.

Also we establish some properties of the solutions and of the set they form.

Completed Beltrami-Michell formulation for analyzing mixed boundary value problems in elasticity Patnaik, Surya N.; Kaljevic, Igor; Hopkins, Dale A.; Saigal, Sunil 1995-01-01 In elasticity, the method of forces, wherein stress parameters are considered as the primary unknowns, is known as the Beltrami-Michell formulation (BMF). The existing BMF can only solve stress boundary value problems; it cannot handle the more prevalent displacement of mixed boundary value problems of elasticity. Therefore, this formulation, which has restricted application, could not become a true alternative to the Navier's displacement method, which can solve all three types of boundary value problems. The restrictions in the BMF have been alleviated by augmenting the classical formulation with a novel set of conditions identified as the boundary compatibility conditions. This new method, which completes the classical force formulation, has been termed the completed Beltrami-Michell formulation (CBMF). The CBMF can solve general elasticity problems with stress, displacement, and mixed boundary conditions in terms of stresses as the primary unknowns. The CBMF is derived from the stationary condition of the variational functional of the integrated force method. In the CBMF, stresses for kinematically stable structures can be obtained without any reference to the displacements either in the field or on the boundary. This paper presents the CBMF and its derivation from the variational functional of the integrated force method. Several examples are presented to demonstrate the applicability of the completed formulation for analyzing mixed boundary value problems under thermomechanical loads. Selected example problems include a cylindrical shell wherein membrane and bending responses are coupled, and a composite circular plate. 1.

SUPORT, Solution of Linear 2 Point Boundary Value Problems, Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg Method 1 - Description of problem or function: SUPORT solves a system of linear two-point boundary-value problems subject to general separated boundary conditions. 2 - Method of solution: The method of solution uses superposition coupled with an ortho-normalization procedure and a variable-step Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integration scheme. Each time the superposition solutions start to lose their numerical independence, the vectors are re-ortho-normalized before integration proceeds. The underlying principle of the algorithm is then to piece together the intermediate (orthogonalized) solutions, defined on the various subintervals, to obtain the desired solution. 3 - Restrictions on the complexity of the problem: The boundary-value problem must be linear and the boundary conditions must be separated.

Two-scale homogenization of electromechanically coupled boundary value problems. Consistent linearization and applications Schröder, Jörg; Keip, Marc-André 2012-08-01 The contribution addresses a direct micro-macro transition procedure for electromechanically coupled boundary value problems. The two-scale homogenization approach is implemented into a so-called FE2-method which allows for the computation of macroscopic boundary value problems in consideration of microscopic representative volume elements. The resulting formulation is applicable to the computation of linear as well as nonlinear problems. In the present paper, linear piezoelectric as well as nonlinear electrostrictive material behavior are investigated, where the constitutive equations on the microscale are derived from suitable thermodynamic potentials. The proposed direct homogenization procedure can also be applied for the computation of effective elastic, piezoelectric, dielectric, and electrostrictive material properties. 17.

Mixed initial-boundary value problem for equations of motion of Kelvin-Voigt fluids Baranovskii, E. S. 2016-07-01 The initial-boundary value problem for equations of motion of Kelvin-Voigt fluids with mixed boundary conditions is studied. The no-slip condition is used on some portion of the boundary, while the impermeability condition and the tangential component of the surface force field are specified on the rest of the boundary. The global-in-time existence of a weak solution is proved. It is shown that the solution is unique and depends continuously on the field of external forces, the field of surface forces, and initial data. 4. Elliptic boundary value problems for Bessel operators, with applications to anti-de Sitter spacetimes Gannot, Oran 2015-01-01 This paper considers boundary value problems for a class of singular elliptic operators which appear naturally in the study of anti-de Sitter spacetimes. These problems involve a singular Bessel operator acting in the normal direction. After formulating a Lopatinskii condition, elliptic estimates are established for functions supported near the boundary. A global Fredholm property follows from additional hypotheses in the interior. The results of this paper provide a rigorous framework for the study of quasinormal modes on anti-de Sitter black holes for the full range of boundary conditions considered in the physics literature. 5.

Comparison, existence, uniqueness and successive approximations for ordinary and elliptic boundary value problems Bailey, Shampine and Waltman have developed an existence theory for two-point boundary value problems of second-order differential equations whose second members satisfy one-sided Lipshitz conditions. These results suggest that solutions should exist in the following much more general situation: the second member f is bounded by two functions f1, f2, such that the corresponding second-order equations have solutions for two-point boundary value problems. The condition f12 implies that if xsub(i) is a solution of the Picard problem xsub(i)'' = fsub(i)(t, xsub(i)), xsub(i)(a) = A, xsub(i)(b) = B, then x2 and x1 are, respectively, a lower and an upper solution of the Picard problem x'' = f(t,x), x(a) = A, x(a) = A, x(b) = B. Then a well-known result would imply an affirmative answer to our conjecture if x21. The aim of this paper is to provide a comnparison result and to apply it to uniqueness and existence of solutions as well as to the convergence of successive approximations. The argument is so general that it applies to (i) periodic solutions of first-order ordinary differential equations; (ii) periodic solutions and a large class of Sturm-Liouville problems (including Nicoletti boundary value problem) for second-order ordinary differential equations; and (iii) Dirichlet boundary value problems for elliptic equations.

The use of the Adomian decomposition method for solving multipoint boundary value problems In this paper, a method for solving multipoint boundary value problems is presented.

Using this method, it is possible to obtain the solution of the general form of multipoint boundary value problems.

About potential of double layer and boundary value problems for Laplace equation An integral operator raisen by a kernel of the double layer's potential is investigated. The kernel is defined on S (S - two-digit variety of C2 class presented by a boundary of the finite domain in R3). The operator is considered on C(S). Following results are received: the operator's spectrum belongs to [-1,1]; it's eigenvalues and eigenfunctions may be found by Kellog's method; knowledge of the operator's spectrum is enough to construct it's resolvent. These properties permit to point out the determined interation processes, solving boundary value problems for Laplace equation. One of such processes - solving of Roben problem - is generalized on electrostatic problems. 6 refs 14.

The second boundary value problem for equations of viscoelastic diffusion in polymers Vorotnikov, Dmitry A 2009-01-01 The classical approach to diffusion processes is based on Fick's law that the flux is proportional to the concentration gradient. Various phenomena occurring during propagation of penetrating liquids in polymers show that this type of diffusion exhibits anomalous behavior and contradicts the just mentioned law. However, they can be explained in the framework of non-Fickian diffusion theories based on viscoelasticity of polymers. Initial-boundary value problems for viscoelastic diffusion equations have been studied by several authors. Most of the studies are devoted to the Dirichlet BVP (the concentration is given on the boundary of the domain). In this chapter we study the second BVP, i.e. when the normal component of the concentration flux is prescribed on the boundary, which is more realistic in many physical situations. We establish existence of weak solutions to this problem. We suggest some conditions on the coefficients and boundary data under which all the solutions tend to the homogeneous state as tim... 14.

Estimation of parameters of boundary value problems for linear ordinary differential equations with uncertain data Nakonechnyi, Olexandr; Shestopalov, Yury 2009-01-01 In this paper we construct optimal, in certain sense, estimates of values of linear functionals on solutions to two-point boundary value problems (BVPs) for systems of linear first-order ordinary differential equations from observations which are linear transformations of the same solutions perturbed by additive random noises. It is assumed here that right-hand sides of equations and boundary data as well as statistical characteristics of random noises in observations are not known and belong to certain given sets in corresponding functional spaces. This leads to the necessity of introducing minimax statement of an estimation problem when optimal estimates are defined as linear, with respect to observations, estimates for which the maximum of mean square error of estimation taken over the above-mentioned sets attains minimal value. Such estimates are called minimax estimates. We establish that the minimax estimates are expressed via solutions of some systems of differential equations of special type. Similar ... 20. Asymptotics of linear initial boundary value problems with periodic boundary data on the half-line and finite intervals Dujardin, G. M. 2009-08-12 This paper deals with the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of linear initial boundary value problems with constant coefficients on the half-line and on finite intervals. We assume that the boundary data are periodic in time and we investigate whether the solution becomes time-periodic after sufficiently long time. Using Fokas\\' transformation method, we show that, for the linear Schrödinger equation, the linear heat equation and the linearized KdV equation on the half-line, the solutions indeed become periodic for large time. However, for the same linear Schrödinger equation on a finite interval, we show that the solution, in general, is not asymptotically periodic; actually, the asymptotic behaviour of the solution depends on the commensurability of the time period T of the boundary data with the square of the length of the interval over. © 2009 The Royal Society. 1. Continuum and Discrete Initial-Boundary Value Problems and Einstein's Field Equations Olivier Sarbach 2012-08-01 Full Text Available Many evolution problems in physics are described by partial differential equations on an infinite domain; therefore, one is interested in the solutions to such problems for a given initial dataset. A prominent example is the binary black-hole problem within Einstein's theory of gravitation, in which one computes the gravitational radiation emitted from the inspiral of the two black holes, merger and ringdown. Powerful mathematical tools can be used to establish qualitative statements about the solutions, such as their existence, uniqueness, continuous dependence on the initial data, or their asymptotic behavior over large time scales. However, one is often interested in computing the solution itself, and unless the partial differential equation is very simple, or the initial data possesses a high degree of symmetry, this computation requires approximation by numerical discretization. When solving such discrete problems on a machine, one is faced with a finite limit to computational resources, which leads to the replacement of the infinite continuum domain with a finite computer grid. This, in turn, leads to a discrete initial-boundary value problem. The hope is to recover, with high accuracy, the exact solution in the limit where the grid spacing converges to zero with the boundary being pushed to infinity. The goal of this article is to review some of the theory necessary to understand the continuum and discrete initial boundary-value problems arising from hyperbolic partial differential equations and to discuss its applications to numerical relativity; in particular, we present well-posed initial and initial-boundary value formulations of Einstein's equations, and we discuss multi-domain high-order finite difference and spectral methods to solve them. 2. A MIXED ELECTRIC BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM FOR AN ANTI－PLANE PIEZOELECTRIC CRACK ttnAngZlaenyu; KuangZhenbang 2003-01-01 The analytical continuation method is adopted to solve a mixed electric boundary value problem for a piezoelectric medium under anti-plane deformation. The crack face is partly conductive and partly impermeable. The results show that the stress intensity factor is identical with the mode III stress intensity factor independent of the conducting length. But the electric field and the electric displacement are dependent on the electric boundary conditions on the crack faces and are singular not only at the crack tips but also at the junctures between the impermeable part and conducting portions. 3. On the asymptotic of solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in domains with edges Solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in three-dimensional domains with edges may exhibit singularities. The usual procedure to study these singularities is by the application of the classical Mellin transformation or continuous Fourier transformation. In this paper, we show how the asymptotic behavior of solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in general three-dimensional domains with straight edges can be investigated by means of discrete Fourier transformation. We apply this approach to time-harmonic Maxwell's equations and prove that the singular solutions can fully be described in terms of Fourier series. The representation here can easily be used to approximate three-dimensional stress intensity factors associated with edge singularities. (author) 4.

The second boundary value problem for equations of viscoelastic diffusion in polymers Vorotnikov, Dmitry A. 2009-01-01 The classical approach to diffusion processes is based on Fick's law that the flux is proportional to the concentration gradient. Various phenomena occurring during propagation of penetrating liquids in polymers show that this type of diffusion exhibits anomalous behavior and contradicts the just mentioned law.

Upwind finite difference method for miscible oil and water displacement problem with moving boundary values Yi-rang YUAN; Chang-feng LI; Cheng-shun YANG; Yu-ji HAN 2009-01-01 The research of the miscible oil and water displacement problem with moving boundary values is of great value to the history of oil-gas transport and accumulation in the basin evolution as well as to the rational evaluation in prospecting and exploiting oil-gas resources. The mathematical model can be described as a coupled system of nonlinear partial differential equations with moving boundary values. For the two-dimensional bounded region, the upwind finite difference schemes are proposed. Some techniques, such as the calculus of variations, the change of variables, and the theory of a priori estimates, are used. The optimal order l2-norm estimates are derived for the errors in the approximate solutions. The research is important both theoretically and practically for the model analysis in the field, the model numerical method, and the software development. 15. Computational solution of nonlinear two-point boundary-value problems. [SUPOR Q, in FORTRAN for CDC 6600 Scott, M.R.; Watts, H.A. 1977-01-01 A working computer code, called SUPOR Q, which solves quite general nonlinear two-point boundary value problems is described. The nonlinear problem is replaced by a sequence of linear problems by applying quasilinearization (Newton's method) to the nonlinear differential operator. Each linear two-point boundary value problem is solved by an initial-value procedure which combines the well-known technique of superposition with a process called orthonormalization. 3 tables. 16.

Our main goal consists in a fairly general definition of these functions as couples from . Some conditions ensuring their existence are indicated, as well. 18. Solution of Seventh Order Boundary Value Problems by Variation of Parameters Method Muzammal Iftikhar 2013-01-01 Full Text Available The induction motor behavior is represented by a fifth order differential equation model. Addition of a torque correction factor to this model accurately reproduces the transient torques and instantaneous real and reactive power flows of the full seventh order differential equation model. The aim of this study is to solve the seventh order boundary value problems and the variation of parameters method is used for this purpose. The approximate solutions of the problems are obtained in terms of rapidly convergent series. Two numerical examples have been given to illustrate the efficiency and implementation of the method. 19. MULTIPLE POSITIVE SOLUTIONS OF SINGULAR THIRD-ORDER PERIODIC BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM Sun Jingxian; Liu Yansheng 2005-01-01 This paper deals with the singular nonlinear third-order periodic boundary value problem u′″ + ρau = f(t,u), 0 ≤ t ≤ 2π, with u(i)(0) = u(i)(2π), i = 0, 1, 2, where ρ∈ (0, 1/√3) and f is singular at t = 0, t = 1 and u = 0. Under suitable weaker conditions than those of [1], it is proved by constructing a special cone in C[0, 2π] and employing the fixed point index theory that the problem has at least one or at least two positive solutions. 20. Lie symmetries and reductions of multi-dimensional boundary value problems of the Stefan type A new definition of Lie invariance for nonlinear multi-dimensional boundary value problems (BVPs) is proposed by the generalization of known definitions to much wider classes of BVPs. The class of (1+3)-dimensional nonlinear BVPs of the Stefan type, modeling the process of melting and evaporation of metals, is studied in detail. Using the definition proposed, the group classification problem for this class of BVPs is solved and some reductions (with physical meaning) to BVPs of lower dimensionality are made. Examples of how to construct exact solutions of the (1+3)-dimensional nonlinear BVP with the correctly specified coefficients are presented. (paper) 1. Quintic nonpolynomial spline solutions for fourth order two-point boundary value problem Ramadan, M. A.; Lashien, I. F.; Zahra, W. K. 2009-04-01 In this paper, we develop quintic nonpolynomial spline methods for the numerical solution of fourth order two-point boundary value problems. Using this spline function a few consistency relations are derived for computing approximations to the solution of the problem. The present approach gives better approximations and generalizes all the existing polynomial spline methods up to order four. This approach has less computational cost. Convergence analysis of these methods is discussed. Two numerical examples are included to illustrate the practical usefulness of our methods. 2. On explicit and numerical solvability of parabolic initial-boundary value problems Olga Lepsky 2006-05-01 Full Text Available A homogeneous boundary condition is constructed for the parabolic equation (Ã¢ÂˆÂ‚t+IÃ¢ÂˆÂ’ÃŽÂ”u=f in an arbitrary cylindrical domain ÃŽÂ©ÃƒÂ—Ã¢Â„Â (ÃŽÂ©Ã¢ÂŠÂ‚Ã¢Â„Ân being a bounded domain, I and ÃŽÂ” being the identity operator and the Laplacian which generates an initial-boundary value problem with an explicit formula of the solution u. In the paper, the result is obtained not just for the operator Ã¢ÂˆÂ‚t+IÃ¢ÂˆÂ’ÃŽÂ”, but also for an arbitrary parabolic differential operator Ã¢ÂˆÂ‚t+A, where A is an elliptic operator in Ã¢Â„Ân of an even order with constant coefficients. As an application, the usual Cauchy-Dirichlet boundary value problem for the homogeneous equation (Ã¢ÂˆÂ‚t+IÃ¢ÂˆÂ’ÃŽÂ”u=0 in ÃŽÂ©ÃƒÂ—Ã¢Â„Â is reduced to an integral equation in a thin lateral boundary layer. An approximate solution to the integral equation generates a rather simple numerical algorithm called boundary layer element method which solves the 3D Cauchy-Dirichlet problem (with three spatial variables. 3. Solving Directly Two Point Non Linear Boundary Value Problems Using Direct Adams Moulton Method Zanariah A. Majid 2011-01-01 Full Text Available Problem statement: In this study, a direct method of Adams Moulton type was developed for solving non linear two point Boundary Value Problems (BVPs directly. Most of the existence researches involving BVPs will reduced the problem to a system of first order Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs. This approach is very well established but it obviously will enlarge the systems of first order equations. However, the direct method in this research will solved the second order BVPs directly without reducing it to first order ODEs. Approach: Lagrange interpolation polynomial was applied in the derivation of the proposed method. The method was implemented using constant step size via shooting technique in order to determine the approximated solutions. The shooting technique will employ the Newtons method for checking the convergent of the guessing values for the next iteration. Results: Numerical results confirmed that the direct method gave better accuracy and converged faster compared to the existing method. Conclusion: The proposed direct method is suitable for solving two point non linear boundary value problems. 4. A new efficient recursive technique for solving singular boundary value problems arising in various physical models Roul, Pradip 2016-04-01 The paper deals with a numerical technique for solving nonlinear singular boundary value problems arising in various physical models. First, we convert the original problem to an equivalent integral equation to surmount the singularity and employ afterward the boundary condition to compute the undetermined coefficient. Finally, the integral equation without undetermined coefficient is treated using homotopy perturbation method. The present method is implemented on three physical model examples: i) thermal explosions; ii) steady-state oxygen diffusion in a spherical shell; iii) the equilibrium of the isothermal gas sphere. The results obtained by the present method are compared with that obtained using finite-difference method, B-spline method and a numerical technique based on the direct integration method, and comparison reveals that the proposed method with few solution components produces similar results and the method is computationally efficient than others. 5. Existence of countably many positive solutions for nth-order m-point boundary-value problems on time scales Zhiyong Wang 2008-09-01 Full Text Available In this paper, we study the existence of positive solutions for the nonlinear nth-order with m-point singular boundary-value problem. By using the fixed point index theory and a new fixed point theorem in cones, the existence of countably many positive solutions for a nonlinear singular boundary value problem are obtained. 6. Probability distribution and the boundary value problem in noncommutative quantum mechanics Full text: Non-commutative quantum mechanics (NCQM) still has some important open questions, such as, for example, the correct definition of the probability density and the consistent formulation of the boundary value problem. The main difficulty relies on the fact that in a non-commutative space the classical notion of point has no operational meaning. Besides that, it is well known that in NCQM the ordinary definition of probability density does not satisfy the continuity equation, thus being physically inadequate to this context. As a consequence, the formulation of the boundary value problem in NCQM is ill-defined, since the confining conditions for a particle trapped in a closed region are often formulated in terms of the properties of the probability density at the boundaries of such a region. In this work we solve both problems in a unified way. We consider a two-dimensional configuration space generated by two non-commutative coordinates satisfying a canonical commutation relation. This non-commutative space is formally equal to the phase space of a quantum particle moving in a line, what suggests an approach based on the Wigner formulation of quantum mechanics. We introduce a quasi-probability distribution function, constructed by means of the Moyal product of functions. By making use of the operation of partial trace we construct a normalizable, positive-definite function. We demonstrate that this function satisfy the continuity equation, so that it can be interpreted as a probability density function, thus providing a physically consistent probabilistic interpretation for NCQM. Even though the probability density contains all the available information about the physical system, it is useful to formulate the boundary value problem in terms of wave functions fulfilling some appropriated differential equation. By making use of harmonic analysis we introduce an auxiliary wave function, which is related to the physical probability density in the same way as 7. A simple finite element method for boundary value problems with a Riemann–Liouville derivative Jin, Bangti 2016-02-01 © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. We consider a boundary value problem involving a Riemann-Liouville fractional derivative of order α∈(3/2,2) on the unit interval (0,1). The standard Galerkin finite element approximation converges slowly due to the presence of singularity term xα-1 in the solution representation. In this work, we develop a simple technique, by transforming it into a second-order two-point boundary value problem with nonlocal low order terms, whose solution can reconstruct directly the solution to the original problem. The stability of the variational formulation, and the optimal regularity pickup of the solution are analyzed. A novel Galerkin finite element method with piecewise linear or quadratic finite elements is developed, and L2(D) error estimates are provided. The approach is then applied to the corresponding fractional Sturm-Liouville problem, and error estimates of the eigenvalue approximations are given. Extensive numerical results fully confirm our theoretical study. 8. GLOBAL C1 SOLUTION TO THE INITIAL-BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM FOR DIAGONAL HYPERBOLIC SYSTEMS WITH LINEARLY DEGENERATE CHARACTERISTICS Li Ta-tsien(李大潜); Peng Yue-Jun 2003-01-01 Abstract We prove that the C0 boundedness of solution impliesthe global existence and uniqueness of C1 solution to the initial-boundary value problem for linearly degenerate quasilinear hyperbolic systems of diagonal form with nonlinear boundary conditions. Thus, if the C1 solution to the initial-boundary value problem blows up in a finite time, then the solution itself must tend to the infinity at the starting point of singularity. 9. Solving Singular Two-Point Boundary Value Problems Using Continuous Genetic Algorithm Omar Abu Arqub 2012-01-01 Full Text Available In this paper, the continuous genetic algorithm is applied for the solution of singular two-point boundary value problems, where smooth solution curves are used throughout the evolution of the algorithm to obtain the required nodal values. The proposed technique might be considered as a variation of the finite difference method in the sense that each of the derivatives is replaced by an appropriate difference quotient approximation. This novel approach possesses main advantages; it can be applied without any limitation on the nature of the problem, the type of singularity, and the number of mesh points. Numerical examples are included to demonstrate the accuracy, applicability, and generality of the presented technique. The results reveal that the algorithm is very effective, straightforward, and simple. 10. Spectral Shifted Jacobi Tau and Collocation Methods for Solving Fifth-Order Boundary Value Problems A. H. Bhrawy 2011-01-01 Full Text Available We have presented an efficient spectral algorithm based on shifted Jacobi tau method of linear fifth-order two-point boundary value problems (BVPs. An approach that is implementing the shifted Jacobi tau method in combination with the shifted Jacobi collocation technique is introduced for the numerical solution of fifth-order differential equations with variable coefficients. The main characteristic behind this approach is that it reduces such problems to those of solving a system of algebraic equations which greatly simplify the problem. Shifted Jacobi collocation method is developed for solving nonlinear fifth-order BVPs. Numerical examples are performed to show the validity and applicability of the techniques. A comparison has been made with the existing results. The method is easy to implement and gives very accurate results. 11.

Then under different assumptions on the nonlinearity F(t,u, we show the existence of weak solutions of the problem when lambda lies in various intervals. Our main tools are variational methods and critical point theorems. 12.

Optimization of solving the boundary-value problems related to physical geodesy. Macák, Marek; Mikula, Karol 2016-04-01 Our aim is to present different approaches for optimization of solving the boundary-value problem related to physical geodesy in spatial domain. In physical geodesy, efficient numerical methods like the finite element method, boundary element method or finite volume method represent alternatives to classical approaches (e.g. the spherical harmonics). They lead to a solution of the linear system and in this context, we focus on three tasks. First task is to choose the fastest solver with respect to the number of iteration and computational time. The second one is to use parallel techniques (MPI or OpenMP) and the third one is to implement advance method like Multigrid and Domain decomposition. All presented examples deal with the gravity field modelling. 14.

In terms of Korn inequality and theory of function space, we prove the uniqueness of the weak solution. This gives an extension of existence theorem of solution for classical elasticity to that of quasicrystals, and develops the weak solution theory of elasticity of 2D quasicrystals given by the second author of the paper and his students. 18. A NEW EFFICIENT METHOD TO BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM FOR BALLISTIC ROCKET GUIDANCE 2005-01-01 The exploitation of rocket guidance technology on the basis of the guidance law of Space Shuttle and Pegasus rocket was performed.

The numerical simulation results have shown that the method features good performances of stability, robustness, high precision, and algebraic formulas in real computation. By virtue of modern DSP (digital signal processor) high speed chip technology, the algorithm can be used in real time and can adapt to the requirements of the big primary bias of rocket guidance. 19.

Two-point boundary value and Cauchy formulations in an axisymmetrical MHD equilibrium problem In this paper we present two equilibrium solvers for axisymmetrical toroidal configurations, both based on the expansion in poloidal angle method. The first one has been conceived as a two-point boundary value solver in a system of coordinates with straight field lines, while the second one uses a well-conditioned Cauchy formulation of the problem in a general curvilinear coordinate system. In order to check the capability of our moment methods to describe equilibrium accurately, a comparison of the moment solutions with analytical solutions obtained for a Solov'ev equilibrium has been performed.

Positive Solutions for Second-Order m-Point Boundary Value Problems on Time Scales Wan Tong LI; Hong Rui SUN 2006-01-01 Let T be a time scale such that 0, T ∈ T. By means of the Schauder fixed point theorem and analysis method, we establish some existence criteria for positive solutions of the m-point boundary value problem on time scaleswhere a ∈ Cld((0, T),[0,∞)), f ∈ Cld([0, ∞) × [0, ∞),[0, ∞)), β,γ∈ [0, ∞), ξi ∈ (0, ρ(T)), b, ai ∈(0, ∞) (for i = 1,..., m - 2) are given constants satisfying some suitable hypotheses. We show that this problem has at least one positive solution for sufficiently small b ＞ 0 and no solution for sufficiently large b. Our results are new even for the corresponding differential equation (T= R) and difference equation (T = Z). 3. EXISTENCE AND MULTIPLE EXISTENCE OF POSITIVE SOLUTIONS TO SECOND-ORDER m-POINT BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEM ON TIME SCALES 2010-01-01 By different fixed point theorems in cones, sufficient conditions for the existence and multiple existence of positive solutions to a class of second-order multi-point boundary value problem for dynamic equation on time scales are obtained. 4. Coarse projective kMC integration: forward/reverse initial and boundary value problems In 'equation-free' multiscale computation a dynamic model is given at a fine, microscopic level; yet we believe that its coarse-grained, macroscopic dynamics can be described by closed equations involving only coarse variables. These variables are typically various low-order moments of the distributions evolved through the microscopic model. We consider the problem of integrating these unavailable equations by acting directly on kinetic Monte Carlo microscopic simulators, thus circumventing their derivation in closed form. In particular, we use projective multi-step integration to solve the coarse initial value problem forward in time as well as backward in time (under certain conditions). Macroscopic trajectories are thus traced back to unstable, source-type, and even sometimes saddle-like stationary points, even though the microscopic simulator only evolves forward in time. We also demonstrate the use of such projective integrators in a shooting boundary value problem formulation for the computation of 'coarse limit cycles' of the macroscopic behavior, and the approximation of their stability through estimates of the leading 'coarse Floquet multipliers' 5. New formulations on the finite element method for boundary value problems with internal/external boundary layers New Petrov-Galerkin formulations on the finite element methods for convection-diffusion problems with boundary layers are presented. Such formulations are based on a consistent new theory on discontinuous finite element methods. Existence and uniqueness of solutions for these problems in the new finite element spaces are demonstrated. Some numerical experiments shows how the new formulation operate and also their efficacy.

Collisional plasma transport: two-dimensional scalar formulation of the initial boundary value problem and quasi one-dimensional models The collisional plasma transport problem is formulated as an initial boundary value problem for general characteristic boundary conditions. Starting from the full set of hydrodynamic and electrodynamic equations an expansion in the electron-ion mass ratio together with a multiple timescale method yields simplified equations on each timescale. On timescales where many collisions have taken place for the simplified equations the initial boundary value problem is formulated. Through the introduction of potentials a two-dimensional scalar formulation in terms of quasi-linear integro-differential equations of second order for a domain consisting of plasma and vacuum sub-domains is obtained.

Numerical continuation methods for dynamical systems path following and boundary value problems Krauskopf, Bernd; Galan-Vioque, Jorge 2007-01-01 Path following in combination with boundary value problem solvers has emerged as a continuing and strong influence in the development of dynamical systems theory and its application. It is widely acknowledged that the software package AUTO - developed by Eusebius J. Doedel about thirty years ago and further expanded and developed ever since - plays a central role in the brief history of numerical continuation. This book has been compiled on the occasion of Sebius Doedel''s 60th birthday. Bringing together for the first time a large amount of material in a single, accessible source, it is hoped that the book will become the natural entry point for researchers in diverse disciplines who wish to learn what numerical continuation techniques can achieve. The book opens with a foreword by Herbert B. Keller and lecture notes by Sebius Doedel himself that introduce the basic concepts of numerical bifurcation analysis. The other chapters by leading experts discuss continuation for various types of systems and objects ... 10. Modeling Granular Materials as Compressible Non-Linear Fluids: Heat Transfer Boundary Value Problems Massoudi, M.C.; Tran, P.X. 2006-01-01 We discuss three boundary value problems in the flow and heat transfer analysis in flowing granular materials: (i) the flow down an inclined plane with radiation effects at the free surface; (ii) the natural convection flow between two heated vertical walls; (iii) the shearing motion between two horizontal flat plates with heat conduction. It is assumed that the material behaves like a continuum, similar to a compressible nonlinear fluid where the effects of density gradients are incorporated in the stress tensor. For a fully developed flow the equations are simplified to a system of three nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The equations are made dimensionless and a parametric study is performed where the effects of various dimensionless numbers representing the effects of heat conduction, viscous dissipation, radiation, and so forth are presented. 11.

Advances in the study of boundary value problems for nonlinear integrable PDEs In this review I summarize some of the most significant advances of the last decade in the analysis and solution of boundary value problems for integrable partial differential equations (PDEs) in two independent variables. These equations arise widely in mathematical physics, and in order to model realistic applications, it is essential to consider bounded domain and inhomogeneous boundary conditions. I focus specifically on a general and widely applicable approach, usually referred to as the unified transform or Fokas transform, that provides a substantial generalization of the classical inverse scattering transform. This approach preserves the conceptual efficiency and aesthetic appeal of the more classical transform approaches, but presents a distinctive and important difference. While the inverse scattering transform follows the ‘separation of variables’ philosophy, albeit in a nonlinear setting, the unified transform is based on the idea of synthesis, rather than separation, of variables. I will outline the main ideas in the case of linear evolution equations, and then illustrate their generalization to certain nonlinear cases of particular significance. (invited article) 16. Interior and exterior solutions for boundary value problems in composite elastic and viscous media R. P. Kanwal 1985-06-01 Full Text Available We present the solutions for the boundary value problems of elasticity when a homogeneous and isotropic solid of an arbitrary shape is embedded in an infinite homogeneous isotropic medium of different properties. The solutions are obtained inside both the guest and host media by an integral equation technique. The boundaries considered are an oblong, a triaxial ellipsoid and an elliptic cyclinder of a finite height and their limiting configurations in two and three dimensions. The exact interior and exterior solutions for an ellipsoidal inclusion and its limiting configurations are presented when the infinite host medium is subjected to a uniform strain. In the case of an oblong or an elliptic cylinder of finite height the solutions are approximate. Next, we present the formula for the energy stored in the infinite host medium due to the presence of an arbitrary symmetrical void in it. This formula is evaluated for the special case of a spherical void. Finally, we analyse the change of shape of a viscous incompressible ellipsoidal region embedded in a slowly deforming fluid of a different viscosity. Two interesting limiting cases are discussed in detail. 17.

20. Boundary value problems of finite elasticity local theorems on existence, uniqueness, and analytic dependence on data

Valent, Tullio

1988-01-01

In this book I present, in a systematic form, some local theorems on existence, uniqueness, and analytic dependence on the load, which I have recently obtained for some types of boundary value problems of finite elasticity. Actually, these results concern an n-dimensional (n ~ 1) formal generalization of three-dimensional elasticity. Such a generalization, be­ sides being quite spontaneous, allows us to consider a great many inter­ esting mathematical situations, and sometimes allows us to clarify certain aspects of the three-dimensional case. Part of the matter presented is unpublished; other arguments have been only partially published and in lesser generality. Note that I concentrate on simultaneous local existence and uniqueness; thus, I do not deal with the more general theory of exis­ tence. Moreover, I restrict my discussion to compressible elastic bodies and I do not treat unilateral problems. The clever use of the inverse function theorem in finite elasticity made by STOPPELLI [1954, 1957a, 1957b]...

Moreover, the limit when α↗1 of the respective solutions is analyzed, recovering the solutions of the classical boundary-value problems when α = 1, and the fractional diffusion equation becomes the heat equation.

10. Two-point boundary value problems and exact controllability for several kinds of linear and nonlinear wave equations

All articles must In this paper we introduce some new concepts for second-order hyperbolic equations: two-point boundary value problem, global exact controllability and exact controllability. For several kinds of important linear and nonlinear wave equations arising from physics and geometry, we prove the existence of smooth solutions of the two-point boundary value problems and show the global exact controllability of these wave equations. In particular, we investigate the two-point boundary value problem for one-dimensional wave equation defined on a closed curve and prove the existence of smooth solution which implies the exact controllability of this kind of wave equation. Furthermore, based on this, we study the two-point boundary value problems for the wave equation defined on a strip with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions and show that the equation still possesses the exact controllability in these cases. Finally, as an application, we introduce the hyperbolic curvature flow and obtain a result analogous to the well-known theorem of Gage and Hamilton for the curvature flow of plane curves.

To solve boundary value problems for linear systems of stochastic differential equations we propose and justify a numerical method based on the Gibbs sampler.

Such generalizations are discussed as well.

6. Elliptic boundary value problems on corner domains smoothness and asymptotics of solutions

Dauge, Monique

1988-01-01

This research monograph focusses on a large class of variational elliptic problems with mixed boundary conditions on domains with various corner singularities, edges, polyhedral vertices, cracks, slits. In a natural functional framework (ordinary Sobolev Hilbert spaces) Fredholm and semi-Fredholm properties of induced operators are completely characterized. By specially choosing the classes of operators and domains and the functional spaces used, precise and general results may be obtained on the smoothness and asymptotics of solutions. A new type of characteristic condition is introduced which involves the spectrum of associated operator pencils and some ideals of polynomials satisfying some boundary conditions on cones. The methods involve many perturbation arguments and a new use of Mellin transform. Basic knowledge about BVP on smooth domains in Sobolev spaces is the main prerequisite to the understanding of this book. Readers interested in the general theory of corner domains will find here a new basic t...
