  1. A simple algebraic cancer equation: calculating how cancers may arise with normal mutation rates

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The purpose of this article is to present a relatively easy to understand cancer model where transformation occurs when the first cell, among many at risk within a colon, accumulates a set of driver mutations. The analysis of this model yields a simple algebraic equation, which takes as inputs the number of stem cells, mutation and division rates, and the number of driver mutations, and makes predictions about cancer epidemiology. Methods The equation [p = 1 - (1 - (1 - (1 - udkNm ] calculates the probability of cancer (p and contains five parameters: the number of divisions (d, the number of stem cells (N × m, the number of critical rate-limiting pathway driver mutations (k, and the mutation rate (u. In this model progression to cancer "starts" at conception and mutations accumulate with cell division. Transformation occurs when a critical number of rate-limiting pathway mutations first accumulates within a single stem cell. Results When applied to several colorectal cancer data sets, parameter values consistent with crypt stem cell biology and normal mutation rates were able to match the increase in cancer with aging, and the mutation frequencies found in cancer genomes. The equation can help explain how cancer risks may vary with age, height, germline mutations, and aspirin use. APC mutations may shorten pathways to cancer by effectively increasing the numbers of stem cells at risk. Conclusions The equation illustrates that age-related increases in cancer frequencies may result from relatively normal division and mutation rates. Although this equation does not encompass all of the known complexity of cancer, it may be useful, especially in a teaching setting, to help illustrate relationships between small and large cancer features.

    2015-01-01

    Some of the most recent and significant results on homomorphisms and derivations in Banach algebras, quasi-Banach algebras, C*-algebras, C*-ternary algebras, non-Archimedean Banach algebras and multi-normed algebras are presented in this book. A brief introduction for functional equations and their stability is provided with historical remarks. Since the homomorphisms and derivations in Banach algebras are additive and R-linear or C-linear, the stability problems for additive functional equations and additive mappings are studied in detail. The latest results are discussed and examined in stability theory for new functional equations and functional inequalities in Banach algebras and C*-algebras, non-Archimedean Banach algebras, non-Archimedean C*-algebras, multi-Banach algebras and multi-C*-algebras. Graduate students with an understanding of operator theory, functional analysis, functional equations and analytic inequalities will find this book useful for furthering their understanding and discovering the l...

    2007-01-01

    It is classical that univariate algebraic functions satisfy linear differential equations with polynomial coefficients. Linear recurrences follow for the coefficients of their power series expansions. We show that the linear differential equation of minimal order has coefficients whose degree is cubic in the degree of the function. We also show that there exists a linear differential equation of order linear in the degree whose coefficients are only of quadratic degree. Furthermore, we prove ...

    We employ the so-called companion matrix method from computational algebraic geometry, tailored for zero-dimensional ideals, to study the scattering equations. The method renders the CHY-integrand of scattering amplitudes computable using simple linear algebra and is amenable to an algorithmic approach. Certain identities in the amplitudes as well as rationality of the final integrand become immediate in this formalism.

  12. The kinematic algebras from the scattering equations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study kinematic algebras associated to the recently proposed scattering equations, which arise in the description of the scattering of massless particles. In particular, we describe the role that these algebras play in the BCJ duality between colour and kinematics in gauge theory, and its relation to gravity. We find that the scattering equations are a consistency condition for a self-dual-type vertex which is associated to each solution of those equations. We also identify an extension of the anti-self-dual vertex, such that the two vertices are not conjugate in general. Both vertices correspond to the structure constants of Lie algebras. We give a prescription for the use of the generators of these Lie algebras in trivalent graphs that leads to a natural set of BCJ numerators. In particular, we write BCJ numerators for each contribution to the amplitude associated to a solution of the scattering equations. This leads to a decomposition of the determinant of a certain kinematic matrix, which appears naturally in the amplitudes, in terms of trivalent graphs. We also present the kinematic analogues of colour traces, according to these algebras, and the associated decomposition of that determinant

    WANG; Xinghua; YANG; Shijun

    2006-01-01

    It is well known that a system of equations of sum of equal powers can be converted to an algebraic equation of higher degree via Newton's identities. This is the Viete-Newton theorem. This work reports the generalizations of the Viete-Newton theorem to a system of equations of algebraic sum of equal powers. By exploiting some facts from algebra and combinatorics,it is shown that a system of equations of algebraic sum of equal powers can be converted in a closed form to two algebraic equations, whose degree sum equals the number of unknowns of the system of equations of algebraic sum of equal powers.

    Neuman, C. P.; Casasent, D.

    1984-01-01

    The philosophy and data encoding possible in systolic array optical processor (SAOP) were reviewed. The multitude of linear algebraic operations achievable on this architecture is examined. These operations include such linear algebraic algorithms as: matrix-decomposition, direct and indirect solutions, implicit and explicit methods for partial differential equations, eigenvalue and eigenvector calculations, and singular value decomposition. This architecture can be utilized to realize general techniques for solving matrix linear and nonlinear algebraic equations, least mean square error solutions, FIR filters, and nested-loop algorithms for control engineering applications. The data flow and pipelining of operations, design of parallel algorithms and flexible architectures, application of these architectures to computationally intensive physical problems, error source modeling of optical processors, and matching of the computational needs of practical engineering problems to the capabilities of optical processors are emphasized.

A linear representation of a group (Abelian group for a pair of quasigroup operations satisfying one of these parastrophically uncancellable quadratic equations is obtained.

    CERN Document Server

    Thomas, Krajewski

    2008-01-01

    In this paper, we present an algebraic formalism inspired by Butcher's B-series in numerical analysis and the Connes-Kreimer approach to perturbative renormalization. We first define power series of non linear operators and propose several applications, among which the perturbative solution of a fixed point equation using the non linear geometric series. Then, following Polchinski, we show how perturbative renormalization works for a non linear perturbation of a linear differential equation that governs the flow of effective actions. Finally, we define a general Hopf algebra of Feynman diagrams adapted to iterations of background field effective action computations. As a simple combinatorial illustration, we show how these techniques can be used to recover the universality of the Tutte polynomial and its relation to the $q$-state Potts model. As a more sophisticated example, we use ordered diagrams with decorations and external structures to solve the Polchinski's exact renormalization group equation. Finally...

    The problem of preserving fidelity in numerical computation of nonlinear ordinary differential equations is studied in terms of preserving local differential structure and approximating global integration structure of the dynamical system.The ordinary differential equations are lifted to the corresponding partial differential equations in the framework of algebraic dynamics,and a new algorithm-algebraic dynamics algorithm is proposed based on the exact analytical solutions of the ordinary differential equations by the algebraic dynamics method.In the new algorithm,the time evolution of the ordinary differential system is described locally by the time translation operator and globally by the time evolution operator.The exact analytical piece-like solution of the ordinary differential equations is expressd in terms of Taylor series with a local convergent radius,and its finite order truncation leads to the new numerical algorithm with a controllable precision better than Runge Kutta Algorithm and Symplectic Geometric Algorithm.

    We prove that if y" = f(y,y',t,\\alpha, \\beta,..) is a generic Painleve equation (i.e. an equation in one of the families PI-PVI but with the complex parameters \\alpha, \\beta,.. algebraically independent) then any algebraic dependence over C(t) between a set of solutions and their derivatives (y_1,..,y_n,y_1',..,y_n') is witnessed by a pair of solutions and their derivatives (y_i,y_i',y_j,y_j'). The proof combines work by the Japanese school on "irreducibility" of the Painleve equations, with the trichomoty theorem for strongly minimal sets in differentially closed fields.

    Kayoya, J. B.

    2005-02-01

    Using the Jordan algebras methods, specially the properties of Peirce decomposition and the Frobenius transformation, we compute the coefficients of the zeta functional equation, in the case of Jordan algebras of type II. As particular cases of our result, we can cite the case of studied by Gelbart [Mem. Amer. Math. Soc. 108 (1971)] and Godement and Jacquet [Zeta functions of simple algebras, Lecture Notes in Math., vol. 260, Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1972], and the case of studied by Muro [Adv. Stud. Pure Math. 15 (1989) 429]. Let us also mention, that recently, Bopp and Rubenthaler have obtained a more general result on the zeta functional equation by using methods based on the algebraic properties of regular graded algebras which are in one-to-one correspondence with simple Jordan algebras [Local Zeta Functions Attached to the Minimal Spherical Series for a Class of Symmetric Spaces, IRMA, Strasbourg, 2003]. The method used in this paper is a direct application of specific properties of Jordan algebras of type II.

  13. Algebraic Integrability of Lotka-Volterra equations in three dimensions

    CERN Document Server

    Constandinides, Kyriacos

    2009-01-01

    We examine the algebraic complete integrability of Lotka-Volterra equations in three dimensions. We restrict our attention to Lotka-Volterra systems defined by a skew symmetric matrix. We obtain a complete classification of such systems. The classification is obtained using Painleve analysis and more specifically by the use of Kowalevski exponents. The imposition of certain integrality conditions on the Kowalevski exponents gives necessary conditions for the algebraic integrability of the corresponding systems. We also show that the conditions are sufficient.

  20. The equationally-defined commutator a study in equational logic and algebra

    CERN Document Server

    Czelakowski, Janusz

    2015-01-01

    This monograph introduces and explores the notions of a commutator equation and the equationally-defined commutator from the perspective of abstract algebraic logic.  An account of the commutator operation associated with equational deductive systems is presented, with an emphasis placed on logical aspects of the commutator for equational systems determined by quasivarieties of algebras.  The author discusses the general properties of the equationally-defined commutator, various centralization relations for relative congruences, the additivity and correspondence properties of the equationally-defined commutator, and its behavior in finitely generated quasivarieties. Presenting new and original research not yet considered in the mathematical literature, The Equationally-Defined Commutator will be of interest to professional algebraists and logicians, as well as graduate students and other researchers interested in problems of modern algebraic logic.

  3. Dirac's equation in half of his algebra

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Relativistic quantum physics has, since 1928, been introduced in textbooks by using 4x4 complex number matrices. Matrices are actually not needed at all. If used, then only the block diagonal 4x4 matrices are really needed for both the momentum operator and for the wavefunction. This new approach should 'simplify' the mathematics (no matrices), so that this wave-equation material can finally be pushed down into the Junior/Senior-level Modern Physics course. (author)

    This paper addresses the notion of detectability for continuous-time switched systems comprising linear differential-algebraic equations (DAEs). It relates to studying asymptotic stability of the set of state trajectories corresponding to zero input and zero output. Due to the nature of solutions of switched DAEs, the problem reduces to stability of the trajectories emanating from a non-vanishing unobservable subspace, for which we first derive a geometric expression.

    Full Text Available We consider an integrable system of reduced Maxwell-Bloch equations that describes the evolution of an electromagnetic field in a two-level medium that is inhomogeneously broadened. We prove that the relevant Bäcklund transformation preserves the reality of the n-soliton potentials and establish their pole structure with respect to the broadening parameter. The natural phase space of the model is embedded in an infinite dimensional loop algebra. The dynamical equations of the model are associated to an infinite family of higher order Hamiltonian systems that are in involution. We present the Hamiltonian functions and the Poisson brackets between the extended potentials.

To prove the stability we use the Yosida Spectral Representation Theorem.

  12. Truncatable bootstrap equations in algebraic form and critical surface exponents

    CERN Document Server

    Gliozzi, Ferdinando

    2016-01-01

    We describe examples of drastic truncations of conformal bootstrap equations encoding much more information than that obtained by a direct numerical approach. A three-term truncation of the four point function of a free scalar in any space dimensions provides algebraic identities among conformal block derivatives which generate the exact spectrum of the infinitely many primary operators contributing to it. In boundary conformal field theories, we point out that the appearance of free parameters in the solutions of bootstrap equations is not an artifact of truncations, rather it reflects a physical property of permeable conformal interfaces which are described by the same equations. Surface transitions correspond to isolated points in the parameter space. We are able to locate them in the case of 3d Ising model, thanks to a useful algebraic form of 3d boundary bootstrap equations. It turns out that the low-lying spectra of the surface operators in the ordinary and the special transitions of 3d Ising model form...

This mathematical object is often used to represent physical systems such as dynamics of solid or chemical interactions. These equations are different from Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) in sense that some of the dependent variables occur without their derivatives. These variables are called ``algebraic variables'', which means free of derivatives and not with respect to abstract algebra...

    We construct cluster algebras the variables and coefficients of which satisfy the discrete mKdV equation, the discrete Toda equation and other integrable bilinear equations, several of which lead to q-discrete Painlevé equations. These cluster algebras are obtained from quivers with an infinite number of vertices or with the mutation-period property. We will also show that a suitable transformation of quivers corresponds to a reduction of the difference equation. (paper)

    The Maxwell–Proca-like field equations of gravitolectromagnetism are formulated using space-time algebra (STA). The gravitational wave equation with massive gravitons and gravitomagnetic monopoles has been derived in terms of this algebra. Using space-time algebra, the most generalized form of gravitoelectromagnetic Klein–Gordon equation has been obtained. Finally, the analogy in formulation between massive gravitational theory and electromagnetism has been discussed.

  20. Confluences of the Painlevé equations, Cherednik algebras and q-Askey scheme

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mazzocco, Marta

    2016-09-01

    In this paper we produce seven new algebras as confluences of the Cherednik algebra of type \\check {{{{C}1}}} {{C}1} and we characterise their spherical-sub-algebras. The limit of the spherical sub-algebra of the Cherednik algebra of type \\check {{{{C}1}}} {{C}1} is the monodromy manifold of the Painlevé VI equation (Oblomkov 2004 Int. Math. Res. Not. 2004 877–912). Here we prove that by considering the limits of the spherical sub-algebras of our new confluent algebras, one obtains the monodromy manifolds of all other Painlevé differential equations. Moreover, we introduce confluent versions of the Zhedanov algebra and prove that each of them (quotiented by their Casimir) is isomorphic to the corresponding spherical sub-algebra of our new confluent Cherednik algebras. We show that in the basic representation our confluent Zhedanov algebras act as symmetries of certain elements of the q-Askey scheme, thus setting a stepping stone towards the solution of the open problem of finding the corresponding quantum algebra for each element of the q-Askey scheme. These results establish a new link between the theory of the Painlevé equations and the theory of the q-Askey scheme making a step towards the construction of a representation theoretic approach for the Painlevé theory.

    CERN Document Server

    Bollhöfer, Matthias; Kressner, Daniel; Mehl, Christian; Stykel, Tatjana

    2015-01-01

    This edited volume highlights the scientific contributions of Volker Mehrmann, a leading expert in the area of numerical (linear) algebra, matrix theory, differential-algebraic equations and control theory. These mathematical research areas are strongly related and often occur in the same real-world applications. The main areas where such applications emerge are computational engineering and sciences, but increasingly also social sciences and economics. This book also reflects some of Volker Mehrmann's major career stages. Starting out working in the areas of numerical linear algebra (his first full professorship at TU Chemnitz was in "Numerical Algebra," hence the title of the book) and matrix theory, Volker Mehrmann has made significant contributions to these areas ever since. The highlights of these are discussed in Parts I and II of the present book. Often the development of new algorithms in numerical linear algebra is motivated by problems in system and control theory. These and his later major work on ...

  2. Projective BGG equations, algebraic sets, and compactifications of Einstein geometries

    CERN Document Server

    Cap, A; Hammerl, M

    2010-01-01

    For curved projective manifolds we introduce a notion of a normal tractor frame field, based around any point. This leads to canonical systems of (redundant) coordinates that generalise the usual homogeneous coordinates on projective space. These give preferred local maps to the model projective space that encode geometric contact with the model to a level that is optimal, in a suitable sense. In terms of the trivialisations arising from the special frames, normal solutions of classes of natural linear PDE (so-called first BGG equations) are shown to be necessarily polynomial in the generalised homogeneous coordinates; the polynomial system is the pull back of a polynomial system that solves the corresponding problem on the model. Thus questions concerning the zero locus of solutions, as well as related finer geometric and smooth data, are reduced to a study of the corresponding polynomial systems and algebraic sets. We show that a normal solution determines a canonical manifold stratification that reflects a...

    2008-01-01

    Starting from the variable separation approach, the algebraic soliton solution and the solution describing the interaction between line soliton and algebraic soliton are obtained by selecting appropriate seed solution for (2+1)-dimensional ANNV equation. The behaviors of interactions are discussed in detail both analytically and graphically. It is shown that there are two kinds of singular interactions between line soliton and algebraic soliton: 1) the resonant interaction where the algebraic soliton propagates together with the line soliton and persists infinitely; 2) the extremely repulsive interaction where the algebraic soliton affects the motion of the line soliton infinitely apart.

    Non-associative algebras is a research direction gaining much attention these days. New developments show that associative algebras and some not-associative structures can be unified at the level of Yang-Baxter structures. In this paper, we present a unification for associative algebras, Jordan algebras and Lie algebras. The (quantum) Yang-Baxter equation and related structures are interesting topics, because they have applications in many areas of physics, mathematics, and computer science. Several new interpretations and results are presented in this paper

    Full Text Available A new technique for solving a certain class of systems of autonomous ordinary differential equations over n is introduced ( being the real or complex field. The technique is based on two observations: (1, if n has the structure of certain normed, associative, commutative, and with a unit, algebras over , then there is a scheme for reducing the system of differential equations to an autonomous ordinary differential equation on one variable of the algebra; (2 a technique, previously introduced for solving differential equations over ℂ, is shown to work on the class mentioned in the previous paragraph. In particular it is shown that the algebras in question include algebras linearly equivalent to the tensor product of matrix algebras with certain normal forms.

  12. Index-aware model order reduction methods applications to differential-algebraic equations

    CERN Document Server

    Banagaaya, N; Schilders, W H A

    2016-01-01

    The main aim of this book is to discuss model order reduction (MOR) methods for differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) with linear coefficients that make use of splitting techniques before applying model order reduction. The splitting produces a system of ordinary differential equations (ODE) and a system of algebraic equations, which are then reduced separately. For the reduction of the ODE system, conventional MOR methods can be used, whereas for the reduction of the algebraic systems new methods are discussed. The discussion focuses on the index-aware model order reduction method (IMOR) and its variations, methods for which the so-called index of the original model is automatically preserved after reduction.

As an application example of this algebraic structure, a τ-symmetry algebra for the Volterra lattice integrable couplings is engendered from this theory.

  16. Intertwining operators for ℓ-conformal Galilei algebras and hierarchy of invariant equations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The ℓ-conformal Galilei algebra, denoted by gl(d), is a non-semisimple Lie algebra specified by a pair of parameters (d, ℓ). The algebra is regarded as a nonrelativistic analogue of the conformal algebra. We derive hierarchies of partial differential equations which have invariance of the group generated by gl(d) with a central extension as kinematical symmetry. This is done by developing a representation theory such as Verma modules, singular vectors of gl(d) and vector field representations for d = 1, 2. (paper)

    Full Text Available This research aimed to describe how algebra tiles can support students’ understanding of linear equations with one variable. This article is a part of a larger research on learning design of linear equations with one variable using algebra tiles combined with balancing method. Therefore, it will merely discuss one activity focused on how students use the algebra tiles to find a method to solve linear equations with one variable. Design research was used as an approach in this study. It consists of three phases, namely preliminary design, teaching experiment and retrospective analysis. Video registrations, students’ written works, pre-test, post-test, field notes, and interview are technic to collect data. The data were analyzed by comparing the hypothetical learning trajectory (HLT and the actual learning process. The result shows that algebra tiles could supports students’ understanding to find the formal solution of linear equation with one variable.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The reflection equation algebra of Sklyanin is extended to the supersymmetric case. A graded reflection equation algebra is proposed and the corresponding graded (supersymmetric) boundary quantum inverse scattering method (QISM) is formulated. As an application, integrable open-boundary conditions for the doped spin-1 chain of the supersymmetric t-J model are studied in the framework of the boundary QISM. Diagonal boundary K-matrices are found and four classes of integrable boundary terms are determined. (author)

  20. Representations of ℓ-conformai Galilei algebra and hierarchy of invariant equation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The ℓ-conformai Galilei algebra, denoted by gℓ(d), is a particular non-semisimple Lie algebra specified by a positive integer d and a spin value ℓ. The algebra gℓ(d) admits central extensions. We study lowest weight representations, in particular Verma modules, of gℓ(d) with the central extensions for d = 1,2. We give a classification of irreducible modules over d = 1 algebras and a condition of the Verma modules over d = 2 algebras being reducible. As an application of the representation theory, hierarchies of differential equations are derived. The Lie group generated by gℓ(d) with the central extension is a kinematical symmetry of the differential equations.

    2004-01-01

    Meticulous and complete, this presentation of Galois' theory of algebraic equations is geared toward upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. The theories of both Lagrange and Galois are developed in logical rather than historical form. And they are given a more thorough exposition than is customary. For this reason, and also because the author concentrates on concrete applications of algebraic theory, Algebraic Equations is an excellent supplementary text, offering students a concrete introduction to the abstract principles of Galois theory. Of further value are the many numerical ex

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kenichi Kondo

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available Ultradiscretization with negative values is a long-standing problem and several attempts have been made to solve it. Among others, we focus on the symmetrized max-plus algebra, with which we ultradiscretize the discrete sine-Gordon equation. Another ultradiscretization of the discrete sine-Gordon equation has already been proposed by previous studies, but the equation and the solutions obtained here are considered to directly correspond to the discrete counterpart. We also propose a noncommutative discrete analogue of the sine-Gordon equation, reveal its relations to other integrable systems including the noncommutative discrete KP equation, and construct multisoliton solutions by a repeated application of Darboux transformations. Moreover, we derive a noncommutative ultradiscrete analogue of the sine-Gordon equation and its 1-soliton and 2-soliton solutions, using the symmetrized max-plus algebra. As a result, we have a complete set of commutative and noncommutative versions of continuous, discrete, and ultradiscrete sine-Gordon equations.

  6. The Hamiltonian structure of soliton equations and deformed scr(W)-algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Poisson bracket algebra corresponding to the second Hamiltonian structure of a large class of generalized KdV and mKdV integrable hierarchies is carefully analysed. These algebras are known to have conformal properties and their relation to scr(W)-algebras has been previously investigated in some particular cases. The class of equations that is considered includes practically all the generalizations of the Drinfel close-quote d endash Sokolov hierarchies constructed in the literature. In particular, it has been recently shown that it includes matrix generalizations of the Gelfand endash Dickey and the constrained KP hierarchies. Therefore, our results provide a unified description of the relation between the Hamiltonian structure of soliton equations and scr(W)-algebras, and it comprises almost all the results formerly obtained by other authors. The main result of this paper is an explicit general equation showing that the second Poisson bracket algebra is a deformation of the Dirac bracket algebra corresponding to the scr(W)-algebras obtained through Hamiltonian reduction. copyright 1997 Academic Press, Inc

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new method for solving algebraic equations without the use of imaginary numbers has been proposed. Complex-conjugate roots can be expressed in terms of their absolute value and real part. This method simplifies the process of solving quadratic equations and provides simple approximate but sufficiently accurate formulas for the roots of cubic equations. This method can also be useful for solving equations of higher orders

  9. Extended trigonometric Cherednik algebras and nonstationary Schrödinger equations with delta-potentials

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We realize an extended version of the trigonometric Cherednik algebra as affine Dunkl operators involving Heaviside functions. We use the quadratic Casimir element of the extended trigonometric Cherednik algebra to define an explicit nonstationary Schrödinger equation with delta-potential. We use coordinate Bethe ansatz methods to construct solutions of the nonstationary Schrödinger equation in terms of generalized Bethe wave functions. It is shown that the generalized Bethe wave functions satisfy affine difference Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equations as functions of the momenta. The relation to the vector valued root system analogs of the quantum Bose gas on the circle with delta-function interactions is indicated.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rutwig Campoamor-Stursberg

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available A direct approach to non-linear second-order ordinary differential equations admitting a superposition principle is developed by means of Vessiot-Guldberg-Lie algebras of a dimension not exceeding three. This procedure allows us to describe generic types of second-order ordinary differential equations subjected to some constraints and admitting a given Lie algebra as Vessiot-Guldberg-Lie algebra. In particular, well-known types, such as the Milne-Pinney or Kummer-Schwarz equations, are recovered as special cases of this classification. The analogous problem for systems of second-order differential equations in the real plane is considered for a special case that enlarges the generalized Ermakov systems.

We construct the lowest weight representations of S-perpendicularq, starting from the Verma modules over S-perpendicularq, finding their singular vectors and factoring the Verma submodules built on the singular vectors. We also give a vector-field realization of S-perpendicularq which provides polynomial realization of the lowest weight representations and an infinite hierarchy of q-difference equations which may be called generalized q-deformed heat equations. We also apply our methods to the on-shell q-Schroedinger algebra proposed by Floreanini and Vinet. (author). 12 refs

    In this paper we have investigated the algebraic structure of the Fokker-Planck equation with a nonlinear drift force. Using the Lie-algebraic approach we have obtained an exact form of the time evolution operator which, in turn, enables us to derive the propagator readily. Since the propagator is for a very general Fokker-Planck equation with a nonlinear drift force, results for any special case can be easily deduced from it.

    Technical and physical systems, especially electronic circuits, are frequently modeled as a system of differential and nonlinear implicit equations. In the literature such systems of equations are called differentialalgebraic equations (DAEs). It turns out that the numerical and analytical properties of a DAE depend on an integer called the index of the problem. For example, the well-known BDF method of Gear can be applied, in general, to a DAE only if the index does not exceed one. In this p...

    During recent years, exact solutions of position-dependent mass Schr\\"odinger equations have inspired intense research activities, based on the use of point canonical transformations, Lie algebraic methods or supersymmetric quantum mechanical techniques. Here we highlight the interest of another approach to such problems, relying on quadratic algebras. We illustrate this point by constructing spectrum generating algebras for a class of $d$-dimensional radial harmonic oscillators with $d\\ge2$ (including the one-dimensional oscillator on the line via some minor changes) and a specific mass choice. This provides us with a counterpart of the well-known su(1,1) Lie algebraic approach to the constant-mass oscillators.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new algorithm is proposed to solve differential-algebraic equations. The algorithm is an extension of the algorithm of general purpose HIDM (higher order implicit difference method). A computer program named HDMTDV and based on the new algorithm is constructed and its high performance is proved numerically through several numerical computations, including index-2 problem of differential-algebraic equations and connected rigid pendulum equations. The new algorithm is also secular error free when applied to dissipationless dynamical systems. This nature is demonstrated numerically by computation of the Kepler motion. The new code can solve the initial value problem O = L { φ(x), [dφ(x)]/dx, [d2φ(x)]/dx2, x }, where L and φ are vectors of length N. The values of first or second derivatives of φ(x) are not always necessary in the equations. (author)

  10. On Generating Discrete Integrable Systems via Lie Algebras and Commutator Equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhang, Yu-Feng; Tam, Honwah

    2016-03-01

    In the paper, we introduce the Lie algebras and the commutator equations to rewrite the Tu-d scheme for generating discrete integrable systems regularly. By the approach the various loop algebras of the Lie algebra A1 are defined so that the well-known Toda hierarchy and a novel discrete integrable system are obtained, respectively. A reduction of the later hierarchy is just right the famous Ablowitz–Ladik hierarchy. Finally, via two different enlarging Lie algebras of the Lie algebra A1, we derive two resulting differential-difference integrable couplings of the Toda hierarchy, of course, they are all various discrete expanding integrable models of the Toda hierarchy. When the introduced spectral matrices are higher degrees, the way presented in the paper is more convenient to generate discrete integrable equations than the Tu-d scheme by using the software Maple.

  15. Statistical and algebraic analysis of a family of random Boolean equations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The statistical and algebraic properties of a family of random Boolean equations are studied in this paper. Based on studying the mechanism of influence propagation from some variable fixed to 1, the giant strongly connected component and magnetization of solutions are investigated, which exhibit the splitting phenomenon of solution space and a ferromagnetic transition. Furthermore, by analyzing the semi-group property of the solution space and the influence of propagation from some variable fixed to 0, the scale of generating elements is calculated, which undergoes linear, polynomial and exponential phases. Compared with the analysis by statistical mechanics, it is suggested that these different phases of algebraic complexity correspond to the structural complexity of the solution space as replica symmetry, one-step replica symmetry breaking and further-step replica symmetry breaking phases. It is supposed that the structural complexity of solution space can be interpreted from the viewpoint of algebra

  16. Multi-matrix loop equations: algebraic and differential structures and an approximation based on deformation quantization

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Large-N multi-matrix loop equations are formulated as quadratic difference equations in concatenation of gluon correlations. Though non-linear, they involve highest rank correlations linearly. They are underdetermined in many cases. Additional linear equations for gluon correlations, associated to symmetries of action and measure are found. Loop equations aren't differential equations as they involve left annihilation, which doesn't satisfy the Leibnitz rule with concatenation. But left annihilation is a derivation of the commutative shuffle product. Moreover shuffle and concatenation combine to define a bialgebra. Motivated by deformation quantization, we expand concatenation around shuffle in powers of q, whose physical value is 1. At zeroth order the loop equations become quadratic PDEs in the shuffle algebra. If the variation of the action is linear in iterated commutators of left annihilations, these quadratic PDEs linearize by passage to shuffle reciprocal of correlations. Remarkably, this is true for regularized versions of the Yang-Mills, Chern-Simons and Gaussian actions. But the linear equations are underdetermined just as the loop equations were. For any particular solution, the shuffle reciprocal is explicitly inverted to get the zeroth order gluon correlations. To go beyond zeroth order, we find a Poisson bracket on the shuffle algebra and associative q-products interpolating between shuffle and concatenation. This method, and a complementary one of deforming annihilation rather than product are shown to give over and underestimates for correlations of a gaussian matrix model

By utilizing the techniques of noncompactness measures, we operate the fixed point theorems such as Darbo's theorem in Banach algebra concerning the estimate on the solutions. The results obtained in this paper extend and improve essentially some known results in the recent literature. We also provide an example of nonlinear functional-integral equation to show the ability of our main result.

    So far fluid mechanical Nambu brackets have mainly been given on an intuitive basis. Alternatively an algorithmic construction of such a bracket for the two-dimensional vorticity equation is presented here. Starting from the Lie-Poisson form and its algebraic properties it is shown how the Nambu representation can be explicitly constructed as the continuum limit from the structure preserving Zeitlin discretization. -- Highlights: → Generalized Hamiltonian fluid mechanics for the two-dimensional vorticity equation. → Enstrophy as Casimir of the Zeitlin (sine-bracket) truncation. → Algebraic construction of Nambu bracket by Bialynicki-Birula and Morrison method. → Infinite-mode limit yields continuum Nambu bracket. → Discussion of generalized Jacobi identity.

  19. On a geometric interpretation of Heisenberg's commutation rule and the algebraic structure of the Pauli equation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is shown that Heisenberg's commutation rule between the position co-ordinate and the corresponding canonically conjugate momentum may be interpreted by noncommuting geometrical structures. As in the absence of a magnetic field the Euclidean norm of the momentum space directly enters the kinetic energy, the momentum space can be mapped onto the quaternion field U2. Such a mapping preserves the norm of the momentum space. By that, the geometric and algebraic structure of the Pauli equation can be obtained and the relationship between the Pauli and the Dirac equation can be made apparent by noncommuting algebraic structures. In an appendix it will also be shown that the extension of the procedure to vector spaces equipped with Riemannian geometry makes no difficulties and a covariant quantization procedure can be formulated.

    OpenAIRE

    Schropp, Johannes

    2003-01-01

    In the present paper we introduce a new class of methods, Projected Runge-Kutta methods, for the solution of index 3 differential algebraic equations (DAEs) in Hessenberg form. The methods admit the integration of index 3 DAEs without any drift effects. This makes them particularly well suited for long term integration. Finally, implemented on the basis of the Radau5 code, the projected Runge-Kutta method admits larger step sizes for a prescribed tolerance than the corresponding classical sc...

    2016-05-01

    In this paper, the Olbers method for the preliminary parabolic orbit determination (in the Lagrange-Subbotin modification) and the method based on systems of algebraic equations for two or three variables proposed by the author are compared. The maximum number of possible solutions is estimated. The problem of selection of the true solution from the set of solutions obtained both using additional equations and by the problem reduction to finding the objective function minimum is considered. The results of orbit determination of the comets 153P/Ikeya-Zhang and 2007 N3 Lulin are cited as examples.

  3. Integrable discretisations for a class of nonlinear Schrödinger equations on Grassmann algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Integrable discretisations for a class of coupled (super) nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) type of equations are presented. The class corresponds to a Lax operator with entries in a Grassmann algebra. Elementary Darboux transformations are constructed. As a result, Grassmann generalisations of the Toda lattice and the NLS dressing chain are obtained. The compatibility (Bianchi commutativity) of these Darboux transformations leads to integrable Grassmann generalisations of the difference Toda and NLS equations. The resulting systems will have discrete Lax representations provided by the set of two consistent elementary Darboux transformations. For the two discrete systems obtained, initial value and initial-boundary problems are formulated.

  5. A new linear Dirac-like spin-3/2 wave equation using Clifford algebra

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new linear Dirac-like wave equation for spin-3/2 is derived, employing four of the seven irreducible eight-dimensional matrices obeying the Clifford algebra C7 with the wave function having the needed eight components only. Though this wave equation is not manifestly covariant and the wave function employed is not locally covariant, it is relativistically invariant and by its very derivation is connected to the Weaver, Hammer and Good (Phys. Rev.; 135: B241 (1964)) formalism for spin-3/2 by a chain of transformations which can be arbitrarily chosen to be either unitary or non-unitary. (author)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper it is proved that all generators of the invariant group of the KdV, MKdV or Burgers equation form a commutative Lie algebra, from which it follows that for any symmetry of these three equations, the evolution equation possesses an infinite number of symmetries (or conservation laws in the case of KdV and MKdV equations). The authors conjecture that this result holds for a yet wider class of equations. (Auth.)

  9. An algebraic fractional order differentiator for a class of signals satisfying a linear differential equation

    KAUST Repository

    2015-04-30

    This paper aims at designing a digital fractional order differentiator for a class of signals satisfying a linear differential equation to estimate fractional derivatives with an arbitrary order in noisy case, where the input can be unknown or known with noises. Firstly, an integer order differentiator for the input is constructed using a truncated Jacobi orthogonal series expansion. Then, a new algebraic formula for the Riemann-Liouville derivative is derived, which is enlightened by the algebraic parametric method. Secondly, a digital fractional order differentiator is proposed using a numerical integration method in discrete noisy case. Then, the noise error contribution is analyzed, where an error bound useful for the selection of the design parameter is provided. Finally, numerical examples illustrate the accuracy and the robustness of the proposed fractional order differentiator.

  10. Multiple travelling wave solutions of nonlinear evolution equations using a unified algebraic method

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new direct and unified algebraic method for constructing multiple travelling wave solutions of general nonlinear evolution equations is presented and implemented in a computer algebraic system. Compared with most of the existing tanh methods, the Jacobi elliptic function method or other sophisticated methods, the proposed method not only gives new and more general solutions, but also provides a guideline to classify the various types of the travelling wave solutions according to the values of some parameters. The solutions obtained in this paper include (a) kink-shaped and bell-shaped soliton solutions, (b) rational solutions, (c) triangular periodic solutions and (d) Jacobi and Weierstrass doubly periodic wave solutions. Among them, the Jacobi elliptic periodic wave solutions exactly degenerate to the soliton solutions at a certain limit condition. The efficiency of the method can be demonstrated on a large variety of nonlinear evolution equations such as those considered in this paper, KdV-MKdV, Ito's fifth MKdV, Hirota, Nizhnik-Novikov-Veselov, Broer-Kaup, generalized coupled Hirota-Satsuma, coupled Schroedinger-KdV, (2+1)-dimensional dispersive long wave, (2+1)-dimensional Davey-Stewartson equations. In addition, as an illustrative sample, the properties of the soliton solutions and Jacobi doubly periodic solutions for the Hirota equation are shown by some figures. The links among our proposed method, the tanh method, extended tanh method and the Jacobi elliptic function method are clarified generally. (author)

  11. Algebraic solution of the Lindblad equation for a collection of multilevel systems coupled to independent environments

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bolaños, Marduk; Barberis-Blostein, Pablo

    2015-11-01

    We consider the Lindblad equation for a collection of multilevel systems coupled to independent environments. The equation is symmetric under the exchange of the labels associated with each system and thus the open-system dynamics takes place in the permutation-symmetric subspace of the operator space. The dimension of this space grows polynomially with the number of systems. We construct a basis of this space and a set of superoperators whose action on this basis is easily specified. For a given number of levels, M, these superoperators are written in terms of a bosonic realization of the generators of the Lie algebra {sl}({M}2). In some cases, these results enable finding an analytic solution of the master equation using known Lie-algebraic methods. To demonstrate this, we obtain an analytic expression for the state operator of a collection of three-level atoms coupled to independent radiation baths. When analytic solutions are difficult to find, the basis and the superoperators can be used to considerably reduce the computational resources required for simulations.

    Full Text Available We have considered linear partial differential algebraic equations (LPDAEs of the form , which has at least one singular matrix of . We have first introduced a uniform differential time index and a differential space index. The initial conditions and boundary conditions of the given system cannot be prescribed for all components of the solution vector here. To overcome this, we introduced these indexes. Furthermore, differential transform method has been given to solve LPDAEs. We have applied this method to a test problem, and numerical solution of the problem has been compared with analytical solution.

    The analysis of the $\\mathbb{Z}_2^{3}$ Laplace-Dunkl equation on the $2$-sphere is cast in the framework of the Racah problem for the Hopf algebra $sl_{-1}(2)$. The related Dunkl-Laplace operator is shown to correspond to a quadratic expression in the total Casimir operator of the tensor product of three irreducible $sl_{-1}(2)$-modules. The operators commuting with the Dunkl Laplacian are seen to coincide with the intermediate Casimir operators and to realize a central extension of the Banna...

    Some key features of the symmetries of the Schr\\"odinger equation that are common to a much broader class of dynamical systems (some under construction) are illustrated. I discuss the algebra/superalgebra duality involving first and second-order differential operators. It provides different viewpoints for the spectrum-generating subalgebras. The representation-dependent notion of on-shell symmetry is introduced. The difference in associating the time-derivative symmetry operator with either a root or a Cartan generator of the $sl(2)$ subalgebra is discussed. In application to one-dimensional Lagrangian superconformal sigma-models it implies superconformal actions which are either supersymmetric or non-supersymmetric.

    We argue that one can factorize the difference equation of hypergeometric type on non-uniform lattices in the general case. It is shown that in the most cases of q-linear spectrum of the eigenvalues, this directly leads to the dynamical symmetry algebra su{sub q}(1, 1), whose generators are explicitly constructed in terms of the difference operators, obtained in the process of factorization. Thus all models with the q-linear spectrum (some of them, but not all, previously considered in a number of publications) can be treated in a unified form.

    Under the influence of human population distribution, the boyciana-fish ecological system is considered. First, the system can be described as a nonlinear partial differential algebraic equations system (PDAEs) with Neumann boundary conditions and ratio-dependent functional response. Second, we examine the system's persistence properties: the loacl stabilities of positive steady states, the absorbtion region and the global stability. And the proposed approach is illustrated by numerical simulation. Finally, by using the realistic data collected in the past fourteen years, the PDAEs parameter optimization model is built to predict the boyciana population. PMID:27155570

    The $\\Sigma$-method for structural analysis of a differential-algebraic equation (DAE) system produces offset vectors from which the sparsity pattern of a system Jacobian is derived.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We obtain the exceptional part of the eigenspectrum of the generalized Rabi model, also known as the driven Rabi model, in terms of the roots of a set of algebraic equations. This approach provides a product form for the wavefunction components and allows an explicit connection with recent results obtained for the wavefunction in terms of truncated confluent Heun functions. Other approaches are also compared. For particular parameter values the exceptional part of the eigenspectrum consists of doubly degenerate crossing points. We give a proof for the number of roots of the constraint polynomials and discuss the number of crossing points. (paper)

  2. Asymptotic Analysis of a System of Algebraic Equations Arising in Dislocation Theory

    KAUST Repository

    2010-01-01

    The system of algebraic equations given by σn j=0, j≠=i sgn(xi-xj )|xi-xj|a = 1, i = 1, 2, ⋯ , n, x0 = 0, appears in dislocation theory in models of dislocation pile-ups. Specifically, the case a = 1 corresponds to the simple situation where n dislocations are piled up against a locked dislocation, while the case a = 3 corresponds to n dislocation dipoles piled up against a locked dipole. We present a general analysis of systems of this type for a > 0 and n large. In the asymptotic limit n→∞, it becomes possible to replace the system of discrete equations with a continuum equation for the particle density. For 0 < a < 2, this takes the form of a singular integral equation, while for a > 2 it is a first-order differential equation. The critical case a = 2 requires special treatment, but, up to corrections of logarithmic order, it also leads to a differential equation. The continuum approximation is valid only for i neither too small nor too close to n. The boundary layers at either end of the pile-up are also analyzed, which requires matching between discrete and continuum approximations to the main problem. © 2010 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

  3. Direct Method to Solve Differential-Algebraic Equations by Using the Operational Matrices of Chebyshev Cardinal Functions

    Full Text Available A new and effective direct method to determine the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear differential-algebraic equations (DAEs is proposed. The method consists of expanding the required approximate solution as the elements of Chebyshev cardinal functions. The operational matrices for the integration and product of the Chebyshev cardinal functions are presented. A general procedure for forming these matrices is given. These matrices play an important role in modelling of problems. By using these operational matrices together, a differentialalgebraic equation can be transformed to a system of algebraic equations. Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique

    2010-08-07

    The Ernst equation for Fourier transform nuclear magnetic resonance (MR) describes the spoiled steady-state signal created by periodic partial excitation. In MR imaging (MRI), it is commonly applied to spoiled gradient-echo acquisition in the steady state, created by a small flip angle {alpha} at a repetition time TR much shorter than the longitudinal relaxation time T{sub 1}. We describe two parameter transformations of {alpha} and TR/T{sub 1}, which render the Ernst equation as a low-order rational function. Computer algebra can be readily applied for analytically solving protocol optimization, as shown for the dual flip angle experiment. These transformations are based on the half-angle tangent substitution and its hyperbolic analogue. They are monotonic and approach identity for small {alpha} and small TR/T{sub 1} with a third-order error. Thus, the exact algebraization can be readily applied to fast gradient echo MRI to yield a rational approximation in {alpha} and TR/T{sub 1}. This reveals a fundamental relationship between the square of the flip angle and TR/T{sub 1} which characterizes the Ernst angle, constant degree of T{sub 1}-weighting and the influence of the local radio-frequency field.

  8. A novel technique to solve nonlinear higher-index Hessenberg differential-algebraic equations by Adomian decomposition method.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Benhammouda, Brahim

    2016-01-01

    Since 1980, the Adomian decomposition method (ADM) has been extensively used as a simple powerful tool that applies directly to solve different kinds of nonlinear equations including functional, differential, integro-differential and algebraic equations. However, for differential-algebraic equations (DAEs) the ADM is applied only in four earlier works. There, the DAEs are first pre-processed by some transformations like index reductions before applying the ADM. The drawback of such transformations is that they can involve complex algorithms, can be computationally expensive and may lead to non-physical solutions. The purpose of this paper is to propose a novel technique that applies the ADM directly to solve a class of nonlinear higher-index Hessenberg DAEs systems efficiently. The main advantage of this technique is that; firstly it avoids complex transformations like index reductions and leads to a simple general algorithm. Secondly, it reduces the computational work by solving only linear algebraic systems with a constant coefficient matrix at each iteration, except for the first iteration where the algebraic system is nonlinear (if the DAE is nonlinear with respect to the algebraic variable). To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed technique, we apply it to a nonlinear index-three Hessenberg DAEs system with nonlinear algebraic constraints. This technique is straightforward and can be programmed in Maple or Mathematica to simulate real application problems. PMID:27330880

  9. Contribution to the resolution of algebraic differential equations. Application to electronic circuits and nuclear reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This note deals with the resolution of large algebraic differential systems involved in the physical sciences, with special reference to electronics and nuclear physics. The theoretical aspect of the algorithms established and developed for this purpose is discussed in detail. A decomposition algorithm based on the graph theory is developed in detail and the regressive analysis of the error involved in the decomposition is carried out. The specific application of these algorithms on the analyses of non-linear electronic circuits and to the integration of algebraic differential equations simulating the general operation of nuclear reactors coupled to heat exchangers is discussed in detail. To conclude, it is shown that the development of efficient digital resolution techniques dealing with the elements in order is sub-optimal for large systems and calls for the revision of conventional formulation methods. Thus for a high-order physical system, the larger, the number of auxiliary unknowns introduced, the easier the formulation and resolution, owing to the elimination of any form of complex matricial calculation such as those given by the state variables method

    2010-07-01

    Full text: In this work a modified Skyrme model is considered such as to incorporate the interaction of the hedgehog with a scalar field, based on a previous work. The Skyrme model is a model of the nucleon in which the baryon emerges as a topological soliton and its coupling to a scalar field can either correspond to the coupling to the lightest scalar isoscalar meson sigma and also to implement the spontaneous breakdown of chiral symmetry in a consistent way. Therefore it can be related to modifications of a dense interacting medium and it becomes suitable for investigating the role of the symmetry breaking and its restoration. A transcendental algebraic equation is found to be enough to extract a new class of profile solutions of the skyrmion in a constant background. The mass of the corresponding topological soliton was found to decrease considerably in the case small masses are associated to the scalar field. (author)

    Qi Zhaohui; Liu Yuqi; Hu Ping

    2001-01-01

    The computational efficiency of numerical solution of linear algebraic equations in finite elements can be improved in tow wqys. One is to decrease the fill-in numbers, which are new non-ze-ro numbers in the matrix of global stiffness generated during the process of elimination.The other is to reduce the computational operation of multiplying a real number by zero.Based on the fact that the order of elimination can determine how many fill-in numbers should be generated, we present a new method for optimization of numbering nodes. This method is quite different from bandwidth optimization. Fill-in numbers can be decreased in a large scale by the use of this method. The bi-factorization method is adoted to avoid multiplying real numbers by zero.For large scale finite element analysis, the method presented in this paper is more efficient than the traditional LDLT method.

  12. Finite difference method and algebraic polynomial interpolation for numerically solving Poisson's equation over arbitrary domains

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tsugio Fukuchi

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available The finite difference method (FDM based on Cartesian coordinate systems can be applied to numerical analyses over any complex domain. A complex domain is usually taken to mean that the geometry of an immersed body in a fluid is complex; here, it means simply an analytical domain of arbitrary configuration. In such an approach, we do not need to treat the outer and inner boundaries differently in numerical calculations; both are treated in the same way. Using a method that adopts algebraic polynomial interpolations in the calculation around near-wall elements, all the calculations over irregular domains reduce to those over regular domains. Discretization of the space differential in the FDM is usually derived using the Taylor series expansion; however, if we use the polynomial interpolation systematically, exceptional advantages are gained in deriving high-order differences. In using the polynomial interpolations, we can numerically solve the Poisson equation freely over any complex domain. Only a particular type of partial differential equation, Poisson's equations, is treated; however, the arguments put forward have wider generality in numerical calculations using the FDM.

    2007-05-01

    Full Text Available An exactly solvable position-dependent mass Schrödinger equation in two dimensions, depicting a particle moving in a semi-infinite layer, is re-examined in the light of recent theories describing superintegrable two-dimensional systems with integrals of motion that are quadratic functions of the momenta. To get the energy spectrum a quadratic algebra approach is used together with a realization in terms of deformed parafermionic oscillator operators. In this process, the importance of supplementing algebraic considerations with a proper treatment of boundary conditions for selecting physical wavefunctions is stressed. Some new results for matrix elements are derived. This example emphasizes the interest of a quadratic algebra approach to position-dependent mass Schrödinger equations.

    2010-01-01

    We give an equivalent construction of the infinitesimal time translation operator for partial differential evolution equation in the algebraic dynamics algorithm proposed by Shun-Jin Wang and his students. Our construction involves only simple partial differentials and avoids the derivative terms of δ function which appear in the course of computation by means of Wang-Zhang operator. We prove Wang’s equivalent theorem which says that our construction and Wang-Zhang’s are equivalent. We use our construction to deal with several typical equations such as nonlinear advection equation, Burgers equation, nonlinear Schrodinger equation, KdV equation and sine-Gordon equation, and obtain at least second order approximate solutions to them. These equations include the cases of real and complex field variables and the cases of the first and the second order time derivatives.

  19. Comparison of critical behaviors of elliptic and hyperbolic quadratic algebraic equations with variable coefficients

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available A comparison of the behaviours of the elliptic with those of hyperbolic quadratic algebraic equations (QAEs with free and linear variable coefficients, in vicinity of their critical surfaces is made. The critic values of the elliptic and hyperbolic QAEs with variables coefficients are obtained by can-celling their great determinant. If only the free term of a QAE is variable from -∞ to + ∞ and the QAE are two-dimensional, an elliptic QAE is represented by coaxial ellipses, which decrease in size and collapse in their common centre. A hyperbolic QAE is represented by coaxial hyperbolas, which approach their asymptotes, degenerate in them, jump over them and go away from them. The real solutions of hyperbolic QAEs exist for all the values of free term and for elliptic QAE, if the value of the free term is greater than the critical one, the real solutions of elliptic QAEs do no longer exist. If, additionally, also the free term is variable, critical parabolas occur, if a plane of coefficients is used. The real solutions for elliptic QAE collapse along their critical parabola and do not exist inside of it. The hyperbolic QAE is represented by coaxial hyperbolas which degenerate in their asymptotes and jump over them along their critical parabola.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper, we study the Dirac equation with spin and pseudospin symmetry by the quadratic algebra approach for the 4-dimensional harmonic oscillator. By realization of the quadratic algebras in the deformed oscillator algebra, we obtain the relativistic energy spectrum. Also, by regarding the generalized Kustaanheimo–Stiefel transformation, we obtain the relativistic energy spectrum for the charge-dyon system with the U(1) monopole. (author)

  4. Geometric interpretation of Heisenberg's commutation rule and the algebraic structure of the Pauli equation

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ulmer, W.; Hartmann, H. (Frankfurt Univ. (Germany, F.R.). Inst. fuer Physikalische und Theoretische Chemie)

    1978-09-01

    It is shown that Heisenberg's commutation rule between the position co-ordinate and the corresponding canonically conjugate momentum may be interpreted by noncommuting geometrical structures. As in the absence of a magnetic field the Euclidean norm of the momentum space directly enters the kinetic energy, the momentum space can be mapped onto the quaternion field U/sub 2/. Such a mapping preserves the norm of the momentum space. By that, the geometric and algebraic structure of the Pauli equation can be obtained and the relationship between the Pauli and the Dirac equation can be made apparent by noncommuting algebraic structures. In an appendix it will also be shown that the extension of the procedure to vector spaces equipped with Riemannian geometry makes no difficulties and a covariant quantization procedure can be formulated.

    2014-03-01

    In the current paper, a simplified model of Tower Cranes has been presented in order to investigate and analyze the nonlinear differential equation governing on the presented system in three different cases by Algebraic Method (AGM). Comparisons have been made between AGM and Numerical Solution, and these results have been indicated that this approach is very efficient and easy so it can be applied for other nonlinear equations. It is citable that there are some valuable advantages in this way of solving differential equations and also the answer of various sets of complicated differential equations can be achieved in this manner which in the other methods, so far, they have not had acceptable solutions. The simplification of the solution procedure in Algebraic Method and its application for solving a wide variety of differential equations not only in Vibrations but also in different fields of study such as fluid mechanics, chemical engineering, etc. make AGM be a powerful and useful role model for researchers in order to solve complicated nonlinear differential equations.

    The Dirac-Dunkl operator on the two-sphere associated to the Z23 reflection group is considered. Its symmetries are found and are shown to generate the Bannai-Ito algebra. Representations of the Bannai-Ito algebra are constructed using ladder operators. Eigenfunctions of the spherical Dirac-Dunkl operator are obtained using a Cauchy-Kovalevskaia extension theorem. These eigenfunctions, which correspond to Dunkl monogenics, are seen to support finite-dimensional irreducible representations of the Bannai-Ito algebra.

    Commutative sets of Jucys–Murphy elements for affine braid groups of {A}(1),{B}(1),{C}(1),{D}(1) types were defined. Construction of R-matrix representations of the affine braid group of type {C}(1) and its distinguished commutative subgroup generated by the {C}(1)-type Jucys–Murphy elements are given. We describe a general method to produce flat connections for the two-boundary quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equations as necessary conditions for Sklyanin's type transfer matrix associated with the two-boundary multicomponent Zamolodchikov algebra to be invariant under the action of the {C}(1)-type Jucys–Murphy elements. We specify our general construction to the case of the Birman–Murakami–Wenzl algebras (BMW algebras for short). As an application we suggest a baxterization of the Dunkl–Cherednik elements {Y}\\prime {{s}} in the double affine Hecke algebra of type A. Dedicated to Professor Rodney Baxter on the occasion of his 75th Birthday.

  9. Adaptive Algebraic Multigrid for Finite Element Elliptic Equations with Random Coefficients

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kalchev, D

    2012-04-02

    This thesis presents a two-grid algorithm based on Smoothed Aggregation Spectral Element Agglomeration Algebraic Multigrid (SA-{rho}AMGe) combined with adaptation. The aim is to build an efficient solver for the linear systems arising from discretization of second-order elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) with stochastic coefficients. Examples include PDEs that model subsurface flow with random permeability field. During a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation process, that draws PDE coefficient samples from a certain distribution, the PDE coefficients change, hence the resulting linear systems to be solved change. At every such step the system (discretized PDE) needs to be solved and the computed solution used to evaluate some functional(s) of interest that then determine if the coefficient sample is acceptable or not. The MCMC process is hence computationally intensive and requires the solvers used to be efficient and fast. This fact that at every step of MCMC the resulting linear system changes, makes an already existing solver built for the old problem perhaps not as efficient for the problem corresponding to the new sampled coefficient. This motivates the main goal of our study, namely, to adapt an already existing solver to handle the problem (with changed coefficient) with the objective to achieve this goal to be faster and more efficient than building a completely new solver from scratch. Our approach utilizes the local element matrices (for the problem with changed coefficients) to build local problems associated with constructed by the method agglomerated elements (a set of subdomains that cover the given computational domain). We solve a generalized eigenproblem for each set in a subspace spanned by the previous local coarse space (used for the old solver) and a vector, component of the error, that the old solver cannot handle. A portion of the spectrum of these local eigen-problems (corresponding to eigenvalues close to zero) form the

    Solutions of linear iterative equations and expressions for these solutions in terms of the parameters of the first-order source equation are obtained. Based on certain properties of iterative equations, finding the solutions is reduced to finding solutions of the second-order source equation. We have therefore found classes of solutions to the source equations by letting the parameters of the source equation be functions of a specific type such as monomials, functions of exponential and logarithmic type.

Furthermore, a sufficient condition for the existence of smooth solutions of quasi-linear differential-algebraic equations is presented.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Based on a new general ansaetz, a new general algebraic method named improved Riccati equation rational expansion method is devised for constructing multiple nontravelling wave solutions for nonlinear partial differential equations. Compared with most existing tanh methods and other sophisticated methods, the proposed method not only recover some known solutions, but also find some new and general solutions. With the aid of symbolic computation, we choose the (2 + 1)-dimensional cubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation to illustrate the method. As a result, six families of new exact analytical solutions for this equation are found, which include some new and more general exact rational form soliton-like solutions and triangular periodic-like solutions

  7. Resolving G\\"odel's Incompleteness Myth: Polynomial Equations and Dynamical Systems for Algebraic Logic

    CERN Document Server

    Norman, Joseph W

    2011-01-01

    A new computational method that uses polynomial equations and dynamical systems to evaluate logical propositions is introduced and applied to G\\"odel's incompleteness theorems. The truth value of a logical formula subject to a set of axioms is computed from the solution to the corresponding system of polynomial equations. A reference by a formula to its own provability is shown to be a recurrence relation, which can be either interpreted as such to generate a discrete dynamical system, or interpreted in a static way to create an additional simultaneous equation. In this framework the truth values of logical formulas and other polynomial objectives have complex data structures: sets of elementary values, or dynamical systems that generate sets of infinite sequences of such solution-value sets. Besides the routine result that a formula has a definite elementary value, these data structures encode several exceptions: formulas that are ambiguous, unsatisfiable, unsteady, or contingent. These exceptions represent ...

  8. Efficient simulation of gas-liquid pipe flows using a generalized population balance equation coupled with the algebraic slip model

    KAUST Repository

    Icardi, Matteo

    2014-09-01

    The inhomogeneous generalized population balance equation, which is discretized with the direct quadrature method of moment (DQMOM), is solved to predict the bubble size distribution (BSD) in a vertical pipe flow. The proposed model is compared with a more classical approach where bubbles are characterized with a constant mean size. The turbulent two-phase flow field, which is modeled using a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equation approach, is assumed to be in local equilibrium, thus the relative gas and liquid (slip) velocities can be calculated with the algebraic slip model, thereby accounting for the drag, lift, and lubrication forces. The complex relationship between the bubble size distribution and the resulting forces is described accurately by the DQMOM. Each quadrature node and weight represents a class of bubbles with characteristic size and number density, which change dynamically in time and space to preserve the first moments of the BSD. The predictions obtained are validated against previously published experimental data, thereby demonstrating the advantages of this approach for large-scale systems as well as suggesting future extensions to long piping systems and more complex geometries. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

  14. On the algebraic classification of perfect fluid solutions of Einstein's equations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis concerns the Einstein-Petrov problem for perfect fluid space-times. This is the problem of finding exact solutions of Einstein's perfect fluid field equations for which the Weyl tensor is of a specific Petrov type. No examples of exact perfect fluid space-times having a Weyl tensor of Petrov type III have ever appeared in the literature. This is the only Petrov Class for which this is so. Consequently an example of such a solution is sought. Using the Newman-Penrose formalism a particular solution is obtained and its properties are discussed. (author)

    We investigate a problem of state estimation for the dynamical system described by the linear operator equation with unknown parameters in Hilbert space. We present explicit expressions for linear minimax estimation and error provided that any pair of uncertain parameters belongs to the quadratic bounding set. As an application of the introduced approach we introduce a notion of minimax directional observability and index of non-causality for linear noncausal DAEs. Application of these notions to the problem of state estimation for the linear uncertain noncausal DAEs allows to construct the state estimation in the form of the recursive minimax filter. A numerical example of the state estimation for 3D non-causal descriptor system is presented.

    Liesen, Jörg

    2015-01-01

    This self-contained textbook takes a matrix-oriented approach to linear algebra and presents a complete theory, including all details and proofs, culminating in the Jordan canonical form and its proof. Throughout the development, the applicability of the results is highlighted. Additionally, the book presents special topics from applied linear algebra including matrix functions, the singular value decomposition, the Kronecker product and linear matrix equations. The matrix-oriented approach to linear algebra leads to a better intuition and a deeper understanding of the abstract concepts, and therefore simplifies their use in real world applications. Some of these applications are presented in detailed examples. In several ‘MATLAB-Minutes’ students can comprehend the concepts and results using computational experiments. Necessary basics for the use of MATLAB are presented in a short introduction. Students can also actively work with the material and practice their mathematical skills in more than 300 exerc...

    2001-01-01

    Let R be a left artinian central F-algebra, T(R) = J(R) + [R, R],and U(R) the group of units of R. As one of our results, we show that, if R is algebraic and char F = 0, then the number of simple components of -R = R/J(R)is greater than or equal to dimF R/T(R). We show that, when char F = 0 or F is uncountable, R is algebraic over F if and only if [R, R] is algebraic over F. As another approach, we prove that R is algebraic over F if and only if the derived subgroup of U(R) is algebraic over F. Also, we present an elementary proof for a special case of an old question due to Jacobson.

  7. Convergence of the standard RLS method and UDUT factorisation of covariance matrix for solving the algebraic Riccati equation of the DLQR via heuristic approximate dynamic programming

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moraes Rêgo, Patrícia Helena; Viana da Fonseca Neto, João; Ferreira, Ernesto M.

    2015-08-01

    The main focus of this article is to present a proposal to solve, via UDUT factorisation, the convergence and numerical stability problems that are related to the covariance matrix ill-conditioning of the recursive least squares (RLS) approach for online approximations of the algebraic Riccati equation (ARE) solution associated with the discrete linear quadratic regulator (DLQR) problem formulated in the actor-critic reinforcement learning and approximate dynamic programming context. The parameterisations of the Bellman equation, utility function and dynamic system as well as the algebra of Kronecker product assemble a framework for the solution of the DLQR problem. The condition number and the positivity parameter of the covariance matrix are associated with statistical metrics for evaluating the approximation performance of the ARE solution via RLS-based estimators. The performance of RLS approximators is also evaluated in terms of consistence and polarisation when associated with reinforcement learning methods. The used methodology contemplates realisations of online designs for DLQR controllers that is evaluated in a multivariable dynamic system model.

    The second order $N$-dimensional Schr\\"odinger equation with pseudoharmonic potential is reduced to a first order differential equation by using the Laplace transform approach and exact bound state solutions are obtained using convolution theorem. Our results generalize all other previous works that done for various potential combinations in the case of lower dimensions.The Ladder operators are also constructed for the pseudoharmonic potential in $N$-dimensions.Lie algebra associated with these operators are studied and found that they satisfy the commutation relations for the SU(1,1) group. Matrix elements of different operators such as $z$, $z\\frac{d}{dz}$ are derived and finally the Casimir operator is discussed briefly.

    We consider the Dirac equation with an external Yang-Mills gauge field in a homogeneous space with an invariant metric. The Yang-Mills fields for which the motion group of the space serves as the symmetry group for the Dirac equation are found by comparison of the Dirac equation with an invariant matrix differential operator of the first order. General constructions are illustrated by the example of de Sitter space. The eigenfunctions and the corresponding eigenvalues for the Dirac equation are obtained in the space R2 × S2 by a noncommutative integration method

  10. The Algebraic Way

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hiley, B. J.

    In this chapter, we examine in detail the non-commutative symplectic algebra underlying quantum dynamics. By using this algebra, we show that it contains both the Weyl-von Neumann and the Moyal quantum algebras. The latter contains the Wigner distribution as the kernel of the density matrix. The underlying non-commutative geometry can be projected into either of two Abelian spaces, so-called `shadow phase spaces'. One of these is the phase space of Bohmian mechanics, showing that it is a fragment of the basic underlying algebra. The algebraic approach is much richer, giving rise to two fundamental dynamical time development equations which reduce to the Liouville equation and the Hamilton-Jacobi equation in the classical limit. They also include the Schrödinger equation and its wave-function, showing that these features are a partial aspect of the more general non-commutative structure. We discuss briefly the properties of this more general mathematical background from which the non-commutative symplectic algebra emerges.

  18. Proposition Algebra with Projective Limits

    CERN Document Server

    Bergstra, J A

    2008-01-01

    Sequential logic deviates from propositional logic by taking into account that atomic propositions yield different Boolean values at different times during the sequential evaluation of a single proposition. Reactive valuations capture this dynamics of a proposition's environment. This logic is phrased as an equationally specified algebra rather than in the form of proof rules. It is strictly more general than Boolean algebra to the extent that the classical connectives fail to be expressively complete in the sequential case. The proposition algebra PRA is developed in a fashion similar to the process algebra ACP and the program algebra PGA via an algebraic specification which has a meaningful initial algebra for which a range of courser congruences are considered important as well. In addition infinite objects (that is propositions, processes and programs respectively) are preferably dealt with by means of an inverse limit construction which allows the transfer of knowledge concerning finite objects to facts ...

  19. Quantum computation using geometric algebra

    Science.gov (United States)

    Matzke, Douglas James

    This dissertation reports that arbitrary Boolean logic equations and operators can be represented in geometric algebra as linear equations composed entirely of orthonormal vectors using only addition and multiplication Geometric algebra is a topologically based algebraic system that naturally incorporates the inner and anticommutative outer products into a real valued geometric product, yet does not rely on complex numbers or matrices. A series of custom tools was designed and built to simplify geometric algebra expressions into a standard sum of products form, and automate the anticommutative geometric product and operations. Using this infrastructure, quantum bits (qubits), quantum registers and EPR-bits (ebits) are expressed symmetrically as geometric algebra expressions. Many known quantum computing gates, measurement operators, and especially the Bell/magic operators are also expressed as geometric products. These results demonstrate that geometric algebra can naturally and faithfully represent the central concepts, objects, and operators necessary for quantum computing, and can facilitate the design and construction of quantum computing tools.

    Basic Linear Algebra is a text for first year students leading from concrete examples to abstract theorems, via tutorial-type exercises. More exercises (of the kind a student may expect in examination papers) are grouped at the end of each section. The book covers the most important basics of any first course on linear algebra, explaining the algebra of matrices with applications to analytic geometry, systems of linear equations, difference equations and complex numbers. Linear equations are treated via Hermite normal forms which provides a successful and concrete explanation of the notion of linear independence. Another important highlight is the connection between linear mappings and matrices leading to the change of basis theorem which opens the door to the notion of similarity. This new and revised edition features additional exercises and coverage of Cramer's rule (omitted from the first edition). However, it is the new, extra chapter on computer assistance that will be of particular interest to readers:...

    Science.gov (United States)

    2012-11-01

    Some concepts in semigroup theory can be interpreted in several algebraic structures. A generalization fA,B,fA,B(X) = A(X')B of the complement operator (') on Boolean matrices is made, where A and B denote any rectangular Boolean matrices. While (') is an isomorphism between Boolean semilattices, the generalized complement operator is homomorphism in the general case. The map fA,B and its general inverse (fA,B)+ have quite similar properties to those in the linear algebra and are useful for solving linear equations in Boolean matrix algebras. For binary relations on a finite set, necessary and sufficient conditions for the equation αξβ = γ to have a solution ξ are proved. A generalization of Green's equivalence relations in semigroups for rectangular matrices is proposed. Relationships between them and the Moore-Penrose inverses are investigated. It is shown how any generalized Green's H-class could be constructed by given its corresponding linear subspaces and converted into a group isomorphic to a linear group. Some information about using computer algebra methods concerning this paper is given.

  11. Algebraic Rate of Decay for the Excess Free Energy and Stability of Fronts for a Nonlocal Phase Kinetics Equation with a Conservation Law. I

    Science.gov (United States)

    Carlen, E. A.; Carvalho, M. C.; Orlandi, E.

    1999-06-01

    This is the first of two papers devoted to the study of a nonlocal evolution equation that describes the evolution of the local magnetization in a continuum limit of an Ising spin system with Kawasaki dynamics and Kac potentials. We consider subcritical temperatures, for which there are two local equilibria, and begin the proof of a local nonlinear stability result for the minimum free energy profiles for the magnetization at the interface between regions of these two different local equilibria; i.e., the fronts. We shall show in the second paper that an initial perturbation v 0 of a front that is sufficiently small in L 2 norm, and sufficiently localized that ∫ x 2 v 0( x)2 dx<∞, yields a solution that relaxes to another front, selected by a conservation law, in the L 1 norm at an algebraic rate that we explicitly estimate. There we also obtain rates for the relaxation in the L 2 norm and the rate of decrease of the excess free energy. Here we prove a number of estimates essential for this result. Moreover, the estimates proved here suffice to establish the main result in an important special case.

  12. Algebraic Riccati equation based Q and R matrices selection algorithm for optimal LQR applied to tracking control of 3rd order magnetic levitation system

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kumare Vinodh

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents an analytical approach for solving the weighting matrices selection problem of a linear quadratic regulator (LQR for the trajectory tracking application of a magnetic levitation system. One of the challenging problems in the design of LQR for tracking applications is the choice of Q and R matrices. Conventionally, the weights of a LQR controller are chosen based on a trial and error approach to determine the optimum state feedback controller gains. However, it is often time consuming and tedious to tune the controller gains via a trial and error method. To address this problem, by utilizing the relation between the algebraic Riccati equation (ARE and the Lagrangian optimization principle, an analytical methodology for selecting the elements of Q and R matrices has been formulated. The novelty of the methodology is the emphasis on the synthesis of time domain design specifications for the formulation of the cost function of LQR, which directly translates the system requirement into a cost function so that the optimal performance can be obtained via a systematic approach. The efficacy of the proposed methodology is tested on the benchmark Quanser magnetic levitation system and a detailed simulation and experimental results are presented. Experimental results prove that the proposed methodology not only provides a systematic way of selecting the weighting matrices but also significantly improves the tracking performance of the system.

  20. A Deductive Approach towards Reasoning about Algebraic Transition Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jun Fu

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Algebraic transition systems are extended from labeled transition systems by allowing transitions labeled by algebraic equations for modeling more complex systems in detail. We present a deductive approach for specifying and verifying algebraic transition systems. We modify the standard dynamic logic by introducing algebraic equations into modalities. Algebraic transition systems are embedded in modalities of logic formulas which specify properties of algebraic transition systems. The semantics of modalities and formulas is defined with solutions of algebraic equations. A proof system for this logic is constructed to verify properties of algebraic transition systems. The proof system combines with inference rules decision procedures on the theory of polynomial ideals to reduce a proof-search problem to an algebraic computation problem. The proof system proves to be sound but inherently incomplete. Finally, a typical example illustrates that reasoning about algebraic transition systems with our approach is feasible.

  5. Lie algebra cohomology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We calculate the cohomology of the BRS operator s modulo an auxiliary differential operator t where both operators act on invariant polynomials in anticommuting variables Ci and commuting variables Xi. Ci and Xi transform according to the adjoint representation of the Lie algebra of a compact Lie group. The cohomology classes of s modulo t are related to the solutions of the consistency equations which have to be satisfied by anomalies of Yang-Mills theories. The present investigation completes the proof of the completeness and nontriviality of these solutions and, as a by-product, determines the cohomology of the underlying Lie algebra. (orig.)

    In this paper we introduce a precise definition of algebraic traveling wave solution for general n-th order partial differential equations. All examples of explicit traveling waves known by the authors fall in this category.

As a paradigmatic application we prove that, for the celebrated Fisher- Kolmogorov equation...

    This insightful book combines the history, pedagogy, and popularization of algebra to present a unified discussion of the subject. Classical Algebra provides a complete and contemporary perspective on classical polynomial algebra through the exploration of how it was developed and how it exists today. With a focus on prominent areas such as the numerical solutions of equations, the systematic study of equations, and Galois theory, this book facilitates a thorough understanding of algebra and illustrates how the concepts of modern algebra originally developed from classical algebraic precursors. This book successfully ties together the disconnect between classical and modern algebraand provides readers with answers to many fascinating questions that typically go unexamined, including: What is algebra about? How did it arise? What uses does it have? How did it develop? What problems and issues have occurred in its history? How were these problems and issues resolved?

  14. On Axiomatic Approaches to Intertwining Operator Algebras

    CERN Document Server

    Chen, Ling

    2015-01-01

    We study intertwining operator algebras introduced and constructed by Huang. In the case that the intertwining operator algebras involve intertwining operators among irreducible modules for their vertex operator subalgebras, a number of results on intertwining operator algebras were given in [H9] but some of the proofs were postponed to an unpublished monograph. In this paper, we give the proofs of these results in [H9] and we formulate and prove results for general intertwining operator algebras without assuming that the modules involved are irreducible. In particular, we construct fusing and braiding isomorphisms for general intertwining operator algebras and prove that they satisfy the genus-zero Moore-Seiberg equations. We show that the Jacobi identity for intertwining operator algebras is equivalent to generalized rationality, commutativity and associativity properties of intertwining operator algebras. We introduce the locality for intertwining operator algebras and show that the Jacobi identity is equi...

  15. Generalized Galilean algebras and Newtonian gravity

    Science.gov (United States)

    González, N.; Rubio, G.; Salgado, P.; Salgado, S.

    2016-04-01

    The non-relativistic versions of the generalized Poincaré algebras and generalized AdS-Lorentz algebras are obtained. These non-relativistic algebras are called, generalized Galilean algebras of type I and type II and denoted by GBn and GLn respectively. Using a generalized Inönü-Wigner contraction procedure we find that the generalized Galilean algebras of type I can be obtained from the generalized Galilean algebras type II. The S-expansion procedure allows us to find the GB5 algebra from the Newton Hooke algebra with central extension. The procedure developed in Ref. [1] allows us to show that the nonrelativistic limit of the five dimensional Einstein-Chern-Simons gravity is given by a modified version of the Poisson equation. The modification could be compatible with the effects of Dark Matter, which leads us to think that Dark Matter can be interpreted as a non-relativistic limit of Dark Energy.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Equations of motion of classical particle with spin in electromagnetic field are derived in terms of the Clifford algebra of the Minkowsky space. The use of the Clifford algebra simplifies the derivation of these equations as well as their form and process of their solving. The equations also get an evident geometric interpretation. The perturbation theory for these equations is formulated which allows to analyze the motion and the polarization of particles in various electromagnetic fields

This implies that if for every Hilbert $C^*$-module $E$ over a $C^*$-algebra $\\mathcal{A}$, the algebra $B(E)$ of adjointable operators on $E$ is a $ W^*$-algebra, then $\\mathcal{A}$ is a $C^*$-algebra of compact operators. Also we show that a unital $C^*$-algebr...

Simulation, optimal control and parametric sensitivity analysis of a molten carbonate fuel cell using a partial differential algebraic dynamic equation system; Simulation, Optimale Steuerung und Sensitivitaetsanalyse einer Schmelzkarbonat-Brennstoffzelle mithilfe eines partiellen differential-algebraischen dynamischen Gleichungssystems

    Sternberg, K.

    2007-02-08

    Molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFCs) allow an efficient and environmentally friendly energy production by converting the chemical energy contained in the fuel gas in virtue of electro-chemical reactions. In order to predict the effect of the electro-chemical reactions and to control the dynamical behavior of the fuel cell a mathematical model has to be found. The molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) can indeed be described by a highly complex,large scale, semi-linear system of partial differential algebraic equations. This system includes a reaction-diffusion-equation of parabolic type, several reaction-transport-equations of hyperbolic type, several ordinary differential equations and finally a system of integro-differential algebraic equations which describes the nonlinear non-standard boundary conditions for the entire partial differential algebraic equation system (PDAE-system). The existence of an analytical or the computability of a numerical solution for this high-dimensional PDAE-system depends on the kind of the differential equations and their special characteristics. Apart from theoretical investigations, the real process has to be controlled, more precisely optimally controlled. Hence, on the basis of the PDAE-system an optimal control problem is set up, whose analytical and numerical solvability is closely linked to the solvability of the PDAE-system. Moreover the solution of that optimal control problem is made more difficult by inaccuracies in the underlying database, which does not supply sufficiently accurate values for the model parameters. Therefore the optimal control problem must also be investigated with respect to small disturbances of model parameters. The aim of this work is to analyze the relevant dynamic behavior of MCFCs and to develop concepts for their optimal process control. Therefore this work is concerned with the simulation, the optimal control and the sensitivity analysis of a mathematical model for MCDCs, which can be characterized

    Handbook of Algebra defines algebra as consisting of many different ideas, concepts and results. Even the nonspecialist is likely to encounter most of these, either somewhere in the literature, disguised as a definition or a theorem or to hear about them and feel the need for more information. Each chapter of the book combines some of the features of both a graduate-level textbook and a research-level survey. This book is divided into eight sections. Section 1A focuses on linear algebra and discusses such concepts as matrix functions and equations and random matrices. Section 1B cover linear d

    2009-01-01

    Starting from a recently-introduced algebraic structure on spin foam models, we define a Hopf algebra by dividing with an appropriate quotient. The structure, thus defined, naturally allows for a mirror analysis of spin foam models with quantum field theory, from a combinatorial point of view. A grafting operator is introduced allowing for the equivalent of a Dyson-Schwinger equation to be written. Non-trivial examples are explicitly worked out. Finally, the physical significance of the results is discussed.

    Within the context of an algebraic theory of processes, an equational specification of process cooperation is provided. Four cases are considered: free merge or interleaving, merging with communication, merging with mutual exclusion of tight regions, and synchronous process cooperation. The rewrite system behind the communication algebra is shown to be confluent and terminating (modulo its permutative reductions). Further, some relationships are shown to hold between the four concepts of merg...

The corresponding entropy is an index of the complexity of the map. The definition inherits the basic properties from the definition of entropy for rational maps. We give an example with positive entropy, as well as two examples taken from the theory of Bäcklund transformations. (letter)

  1. Rota-Baxter algebras and the Hopf algebra of renormalization

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Recently, the theory of renormalization in perturbative quantum field theory underwent some exciting new developments. Kreimer discovered an organization of Feynman graphs into combinatorial Hopf algebras. The process of renormalization is captured by a factorization theorem for regularized Hopf algebra characters. Hereby the notion of Rota-Baxter algebras enters the scene. In this work we develop in detail several mathematical aspects of Rota-Baxter algebras as they appear also in other sectors closely related to perturbative renormalization, to wit, for instance multiple-zeta-values and matrix differential equations. The Rota-Baxter picture enables us to present the algebraic underpinning for the Connes-Kreimer Birkhoff decomposition in a concise way. This is achieved by establishing a general factorization theorem for filtered algebras. Which in turn follows from a new recursion formula based on the Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff formula. This allows us to generalize a classical result due to Spitzer to non-commutative Rota-Baxter algebras. The Baker-Campbell-Hausdorff based recursion turns out to be a generalization of Magnus' expansion in numerical analysis to generalized integration operators. We will exemplify these general results by establishing a simple representation of the combinatorics of renormalization in terms of triangular matrices. We thereby recover in the presence of a Rota-Baxter operator the matrix representation of the Birkhoff decomposition of Connes and Kreimer. (orig.)

    Geophysical inverse problems are endowed with a rich mathematical structure. When discretized, most differential and integral equations of interest are algebraic (polynomial) in form. Techniques from algebraic geometry and computational algebra provide a means to address questions of existence and uniqueness for both linear and non-linear inverse problem. In a sense, the methods extend ideas which have proven fruitful in treating linear inverse problems.

  9. Algebraicity and Asymptotics: An explosion of BPS indices from algebraic generating series

    CERN Document Server

    Mainiero, Tom

    2016-01-01

    It is an observation of Kontsevich and Soibelman that generating series that produce certain (generalized) Donaldson Thomas invariants are secretly algebraic functions over the rationals. From a physical perspective this observation arises naturally for DT invariants that appear as BPS indices in theories of class S[A]: explicit algebraic equations (that completely determine these series) can be derived using (degenerate) spectral networks. In this paper, we conjecture an algebraic equation associated to DT invariants for the Kronecker 3-quiver with dimension vectors (3n,2n), n>0 in the non-trivial region of its stability parameter space. Using a functional equation due to Reineke, we show algebraicity of generating series for Euler characteristics of stable moduli for the Kronecker m-quiver assuming algebraicity of generating series for DT invariants. In the latter part of the paper we deduce very explicit results on the asymptotics of DT invariants/Euler characteristics under the assumption of algebraicity ...

    罗绍凯; 陈向炜; 郭永新

    2002-01-01

    We have studied the algebraic structure of the dynamical equations of a rotational relativistic Birkhoff system. It is proven that autonomous and semi-autonomous rotational relativistic Birkhoff equations possess consistent algebraic structure and Lie algebraic structure. In general, non-autonomous rotational relativistic Birkhoff equations possess no algebraic structure, but a type of special non-autonomous rotational relativistic Birkhoff equation possesses consistent algebraic structure and consistent Lie algebraic structure. Then, we obtain the Poisson integrals of the dynamical equations of the rotational relativistic Birkhoff system. Finally, we give an example to illustrate the application of the results.

    Ribenboim, Paulo

    2001-01-01

    Gauss created the theory of binary quadratic forms in "Disquisitiones Arithmeticae" and Kummer invented ideals and the theory of cyclotomic fields in his attempt to prove Fermat's Last Theorem These were the starting points for the theory of algebraic numbers, developed in the classical papers of Dedekind, Dirichlet, Eisenstein, Hermite and many others This theory, enriched with more recent contributions, is of basic importance in the study of diophantine equations and arithmetic algebraic geometry, including methods in cryptography This book has a clear and thorough exposition of the classical theory of algebraic numbers, and contains a large number of exercises as well as worked out numerical examples The Introduction is a recapitulation of results about principal ideal domains, unique factorization domains and commutative fields Part One is devoted to residue classes and quadratic residues In Part Two one finds the study of algebraic integers, ideals, units, class numbers, the theory of decomposition, iner...

  14. Combinatorics and commutative algebra

    CERN Document Server

    Stanley, Richard P

    1996-01-01

    Some remarkable connections between commutative algebra and combinatorics have been discovered in recent years. This book provides an overview of two of the main topics in this area. The first concerns the solutions of linear equations in nonnegative integers. Applications are given to the enumeration of integer stochastic matrices (or magic squares), the volume of polytopes, combinatorial reciprocity theorems, and related results. The second topic deals with the face ring of a simplicial complex, and includes a proof of the Upper Bound Conjecture for Spheres. An introductory chapter giving background information in algebra, combinatorics and topology broadens access to this material for non-specialists. New to this edition is a chapter surveying more recent work related to face rings, focusing on applications to f-vectors. Included in this chapter is an outline of the proof of McMullen's g-conjecture for simplicial polytopes based on toric varieties, as well as a discussion of the face rings of such special ...

    We develop a Galois theory for linear differential equations equipped with the action of an endomorphism. This theory is aimed at studying the difference algebraic relations among the solutions of a linear differential equation. The Galois groups here are linear difference algebraic groups, i.e., matrix groups defined by algebraic difference equations.

  18. Wavelets and quantum algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A non-linear associative algebra is realized in terms of translation and dilation operators, and a wavelet structure generating algebra is obtained. We show that this algebra is a q-deformation of the Fourier series generating algebra, and reduces to this for certain value of the deformation parameter. This algebra is also homeomorphic with the q-deformed suq(2) algebra and some of its extensions. Through this algebraic approach new methods for obtaining the wavelets are introduced.

    Poisson algebras are fundamental algebraic structures in physics and symplectic geometry. However, the structure theory of Poisson algebras has not been well developed. In this paper, we determine the structure of the central simple Poisson algebras related to locally finite derivations, over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero.The Lie algebra structures of these Poisson algebras are in general not finitely-graded.

    In this thesis, four realizations of the Onsager algebra are explored. We begin with its original definition as introduced by Lars Onsager. We then examine how the Onsager algebra can be presented as a Lie algebra with two generators and two relations. The third realization of the Onsager algebra consists of viewing it as an equivariant map algebra which then gives us the tools to classify its closed ideals. Finally, we examine the Onsager algebra as a subalgebra of the tetrahedron algebra. U...

  3. Parsing with Regular Expressions & Extensions to Kleene Algebra

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Grathwohl, Niels Bjørn Bugge

    . In the second part of this thesis, we study two extensions to Kleene algebra. Chomsky algebra is an algebra with a structure similar to Kleene algebra, but with a generalized mu-operator for recursion instead of the Kleene star. We show that the axioms of idempotent semirings along with continuity of the mu......-operator completely axiomatize the equational theory of the context-free languages. KAT+B! is an extension to Kleene algebra with tests (KAT) that adds mutable state. We describe a test algebra B! for mutable tests and give a commutative coproduct between KATs. Combining the axioms of B! with those of KAT and some...

  4. A new quantum so(2,2) algebra

    OpenAIRE

    1999-01-01

    By starting from the non-standard quantum deformation of the sl(2,R) algebra, a new quantum deformation for the real Lie algebra so(2,2) is constructed by imposing the former to be a Hopf subalgebra of the latter. The quantum so(2,2) algebra so obtained is realized as a quantum conformal algebra of the (1+1) Minkowskian spacetime. This Hopf algebra is shown to be the symmetry algebra of a time discretization of the (1+1) wave equation and its contraction gives rise to a new $(2+1)$ quantum Po...

  11. Exact WKB analysis and cluster algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We develop the mutation theory in the exact WKB analysis using the framework of cluster algebras. Under a continuous deformation of the potential of the Schrödinger equation on a compact Riemann surface, the Stokes graph may change the topology. We call this phenomenon the mutation of Stokes graphs. Along the mutation of Stokes graphs, the Voros symbols, which are monodromy data of the equation, also mutate due to the Stokes phenomenon. We show that the Voros symbols mutate as variables of a cluster algebra with surface realization. As an application, we obtain the identities of Stokes automorphisms associated with periods of cluster algebras. The paper also includes an extensive introduction of the exact WKB analysis and the surface realization of cluster algebras for nonexperts. This article is part of a special issue of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical devoted to ‘Cluster algebras in mathematical physics’. (paper)

  19. Cluster algebras in mathematical physics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This special issue of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical contains reviews and original research articles on cluster algebras and their applications to mathematical physics. Cluster algebras were introduced by S Fomin and A Zelevinsky around 2000 as a tool for studying total positivity and dual canonical bases in Lie theory. Since then the theory has found diverse applications in mathematics and mathematical physics. Cluster algebras are axiomatically defined commutative rings equipped with a distinguished set of generators (cluster variables) subdivided into overlapping subsets (clusters) of the same cardinality subject to certain polynomial relations. A cluster algebra of rank n can be viewed as a subring of the field of rational functions in n variables. Rather than being presented, at the outset, by a complete set of generators and relations, it is constructed from the initial seed via an iterative procedure called mutation producing new seeds successively to generate the whole algebra. A seed consists of an n-tuple of rational functions called cluster variables and an exchange matrix controlling the mutation. Relations of cluster algebra type can be observed in many areas of mathematics (Plücker and Ptolemy relations, Stokes curves and wall-crossing phenomena, Feynman integrals, Somos sequences and Hirota equations to name just a few examples). The cluster variables enjoy a remarkable combinatorial pattern; in particular, they exhibit the Laurent phenomenon: they are expressed as Laurent polynomials rather than more general rational functions in terms of the cluster variables in any seed. These characteristic features are often referred to as the cluster algebra structure. In the last decade, it became apparent that cluster structures are ubiquitous in mathematical physics. Examples include supersymmetric gauge theories, Poisson geometry, integrable systems, statistical mechanics, fusion products in infinite dimensional algebras, dilogarithm

    2007-01-01

    It is a small step toward the Koszul-type algebras. The piecewise-Koszul algebras are,in general, a new class of quadratic algebras but not the classical Koszul ones, simultaneously they agree with both the classical Koszul and higher Koszul algebras in special cases. We give a criteria theorem for a graded algebra A to be piecewise-Koszul in terms of its Yoneda-Ext algebra E(A), and show an A∞-structure on E(A). Relations between Koszul algebras and piecewise-Koszul algebras are discussed. In particular, our results are related to the third question of Green-Marcos.

    里特-吴特征集提供了用计算机解代数方程的有效方法,但迄今为止,还不能由这一方法给出孤立解的重数. 文章给出了孤立解的重数的两个定义,它们是等价的,并且在范德瓦尔登的定义有意义时与后者一致. 一个定义是在非标准分析的框架中,另一个则是标准分析的. 在证明与范德瓦尔登的定义一致时,非标准分析的定义是本质的. 通过再一次在计算机上应用里特-吴方法于由原方程得到的含无穷小参数的代数方程,可以得到原方程的孤立解的重数. 文中给出一个例子的计算机计算结果:首先得出有八个解,然后给出它们的重数:其中有两个的重数为六重,另六个为单根.%Ritt-Wu′s method of characteristic sets is an effective method to solve algebraic equations by computer, while one cannot get the multiplicity of an isolated solution by this method so far. We introduce two definitions for the multiplicity of an isolated solution, they are equivalent and coincide with that of Van der Waerden in the case the later works. One of our definitions is in the framework of nonstandard analysis, and another is in standard analysis. To prove the equivalence with that of Van der Waeden, the nonstandard one is essential. By using Ritt-Wu′s method on computer again to the algebraic equations with some infinitesimals as parameters obtained by modifying the original equations, we can then determine the multiplicity of an isolated solution of the original equations.An example by computer is given: first get 8 solutions, then compute their multiplicities-6 of them are simple roots, while each of the other two has multiplicity 6.

    A universal C*-algebra of the electromagnetic field is constructed. It is represented in any quantum field theory which incorporates electromagnetism and expresses basic features of the field such as Maxwell's equations, Poincaré covariance and Einstein causality. Moreover, topological properties of the field resulting from Maxwell's equations are encoded in the algebra, leading to commutation relations with values in its center. The representation theory of the algebra is discussed with focus on vacuum representations, fixing the dynamics of the field.

    2001-01-01

    Two general families of new quantum-deformed current algebras are proposed and identified both as infinite Hopf family of algebras, a structure which enables one to define "tensor products" of these algebras. The standard quantum affine algebras turn out to be a very special case of the two algebra families, in which case the infinite Hopf family structure degenerates into a standard Hopf algebra. The relationship between the two algebraic families as well as thefr various special examples are discussed, and the free boson representation is also considered.

  17. On fermionic Novikov algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Novikov algebras were introduced in connection with the Poisson brackets of hydrodynamic type and Hamiltonian operators in formal variational calculus. They are a class of left-symmetric algebras with commutative right multiplication operators, which can be viewed as bosonic. Fermionic Novikov algebras are a class of left-symmetric algebras with anti-commutative right multiplication operators. They correspond to a certain Hamiltonian superoperator in a supervariable. In this paper, we commence a study on fermionic Novikov algebras from the algebraic point of view. We will show that any fermionic Novikov algebra in dimension ≤3 must be bosonic. Moreover, we give the classification of real fermionic Novikov algebras on four-dimensional nilpotent Lie algebras and some examples in higher dimensions. As a corollary, we obtain kinds of four-dimensional real fermionic Novikov algebras which are not bosonic.

    Q-systems first appeared in the analysis of the Bethe equations for the XXX model and generalized Heisenberg spin chains (Kirillov and Reshetikhin 1987 Zap. Nauchn. Sem. Leningr. Otd. Mat. Inst. Steklov. 160 211-21, 301). Such systems are known to exist for any simple Lie algebra and many other Kac-Moody algebras. We formulate the Q-system associated with any simple, simply-laced Lie algebras g in the language of cluster algebras (Fomin and Zelevinsky 2002 J. Am. Math. Soc. 15 497-529), and discuss the relation of the polynomiality property of the solutions of the Q-system in the initial variables, which follows from the representation-theoretical interpretation, to the Laurent phenomenon in cluster algebras (Fomin and Zelevinsky 2002 Adv. Appl. Math. 28 119-44)

    2008-01-01

    We study the structure of renormalization Hopf algebras of gauge theories. We identify certain Hopf subalgebras in them, whose character groups are semidirect products of invertible formal power series with formal diffeomorphisms. This can be understood physically as wave function renormalization and renormalization of the coupling constants, respectively. After taking into account the Slavnov-Taylor identities for the couplings as generators of a Hopf ideal, we find Hopf subalgebras in the corresponding quotient as well. In the second part of the paper, we explain the origin of these Hopf ideals by considering a coaction of the renormalization Hopf algebras on the Batalin-Vilkovisky (BV) algebras generated by the fields and couplings constants. The so-called classical master equation satisfied by the action in the BV-algebra implies the existence of the above Hopf ideals in the renormalization Hopf algebra. Finally, we exemplify our construction by applying it to Yang-Mills gauge theory.

    2007-01-01

    Algebraically periodic directions on translation surfaces were introduced by Calta in her study of genus two translation surfaces. We say that a translation surface with three or more algebraically periodic directions is an algebraically periodic surface. We show that for an algebraically periodic surface the slopes of the algebraically periodic directions are given by a number field which we call the periodic direction field. We show that translation surfaces with pseudo-Anosov automorphisms...

  4. A new method for deriving analytical solutions of partial differential equations-Algebraically explicit analytical solutions of two-buoyancy natural convection in porous media

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    Analytical solutions of governing equations of various phenomena have their irre-placeable theoretical meanings. In addition, they can also be the benchmark solu-tions to verify the outcomes and codes of numerical solutions, and even to develop various numerical methods such as their differencing schemes and grid generation skills as well. A hybrid method of separating variables for simultaneous partial differential equation sets is presented. It is proposed that different methods of separating variables for different independent variables in the simultaneous equa-tion set may be used to improve the solution derivation procedure, for example, using the ordinary separating method for some variables and using extraordinary methods of separating variables, such as the separating variables with addition promoted by the first author, for some other variables. In order to prove the ability of the above-mentioned hybrid method, a lot of analytical exact solutions of two-buoyancy convection in porous media are successfully derived with such a method. The physical features of these solutions are given.

    The classical Hamilton equations of motion yield a structure sufficiently general to handle an almost arbitrary set of ordinary differential equations. Employing elementary algebraic methods, it is possible within the Hamiltonian structure to describe many physical systems exhibiting Lie group symmetries. Elementary examples include magnetic moment precession and the mechanical orbits of color charged particles in classical non-abelian chromodynamics.

    Let K be a field. Let H be a finite-dimensional K-Hopf algebra and D(H) be the Drinfel'd double of H. In this paper, we study Radford's induced module Hβ, whereβ is a group-like element in H*. Using the commuting pair established in [7], we obtain an analogue of the class equation for H*β when H is semisimple and cosemisimple. In case H is a finite group algebra or a factorizable semisimple cosemisimple Hopf algebra, we give an explicit decomposition of each Hβ into a direct sum of simple D(H)-modules.

    Full Text Available The non-relativistic versions of the generalized Poincaré algebras and generalized AdS-Lorentz algebras are obtained. These non-relativistic algebras are called, generalized Galilean algebras of type I and type II and denoted by GBn and GLn respectively. Using a generalized Inönü–Wigner contraction procedure we find that the generalized Galilean algebras of type I can be obtained from the generalized Galilean algebras type II. The S-expansion procedure allows us to find the GB5 algebra from the Newton Hooke algebra with central extension. The procedure developed in Ref. [1] allows us to show that the nonrelativistic limit of the five dimensional Einstein–Chern–Simons gravity is given by a modified version of the Poisson equation. The modification could be compatible with the effects of Dark Matter, which leads us to think that Dark Matter can be interpreted as a non-relativistic limit of Dark Energy.

    Solving linear systems arising from systems of partial differential equations, multigrid and multilevel methods have proven optimal complexity and efficiency properties. Due to shortcomings of geometric approaches, algebraic multigrid methods have been developed. One example is the filtering algebraic multigrid method introduced by C. Wagner. This paper proposes a variant of Wagner's method with substantially improved robustness properties. The method is used in an adaptive, self-correcting framework and tested numerically.

    The Lukasiewicz-Moisil algebras were created by Moisil as an algebraic counterpart for the many-valued logics of Lukasiewicz. The theory of LM-algebras has developed to a considerable extent both as an algebraic theory of intrinsic interest and in view of its applications to logic and switching theory.This book gives an overview of the theory, comprising both classical results and recent contributions, including those of the authors. N-valued and &THgr;-valued algebras are presented, as well as &THgr;-algebras with negation.Mathematicians interested in lattice theory or symbolic logic, and computer scientists, will find in this monograph stimulating material for further research.

A Workshop on Lie Algebras, of which these are the proceedings, inaugurated the special year. The principal focus of the year and of the workshop was the long-standing problem of classifying the simple finite-dimensional Lie algebras over algebraically closed field of prime characteristic. However, other lectures at the workshop dealt with the related areas of algebraic groups, representation theory, and Kac-Moody Lie algebras. Fourteen papers were presented and nine of these (eight research articles and one expository article) make up this volume.

  19. On W1+∞ 3-algebra and integrable system

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Min-Ru Chen

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available We construct the W1+∞ 3-algebra and investigate its connection with the integrable systems. Since the W1+∞ 3-algebra with a fixed generator W00 in the operator Nambu 3-bracket recovers the W1+∞ algebra, it is intrinsically related to the KP hierarchy. For the general case of the W1+∞ 3-algebra, we directly derive the KP and KdV equations from the Nambu–Poisson evolution equation with the different Hamiltonian pairs of the KP hierarchy. Due to the Nambu–Poisson evolution equation involves two Hamiltonians, the deep relationship between the Hamiltonian pairs of KP hierarchy is revealed. Furthermore we give a realization of the W1+∞ 3-algebra in terms of a complex bosonic field. Based on the Nambu 3-brackets of the complex bosonic field, we derive the (generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation and give an application in optical soliton.

    It is shown that every almost *-homomorphism h: A → B of a unital JC*-algebra A to a unital JC*-algebra B is a *-homomorphism when h(rx) = rh(x) (r > 1) for all x ∈ A, and that every almost linear mapping h: A → B is a *-homomorphism when h(2nu o y) = h(2nu) o h(y),h(3nu o y) = h(3nu) o h(y) or h(qnu o y) = h(qnu) o h(y) for all unitaries u ∈ A, all y ∈ A, and n = 0, 1, Here the numbers 2, 3, q depend on the functional equations given in the almost linear mappings.We prove that every almost *-homomorphism h: A → B of a unital Lie C*-algebra A to a unital Lie C*-algebra B is a *-homomorphism when h(rx) = rh(x) (r > 1) for all x ∈ A.

  2. On Algebra and Tachyons

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Problem statement: After formulating the special theory of relativity in 1905, Albert Einstein politely remarked: “for velocities that are greater than light our deliberations become meaningless”. In 1962, Sudarshan and his co-researchers proposed a hypothesis that particles/objects whose rest mass is imaginary can travel by birth faster than light. After the publication of Sudarshan’s research, many scholars began to probe into faster than light phenomena. In extended relativity, many properties of tachyons have been found. But still this micro second, the velocity of a free tachyon with respect to us is unknown. In this research the researchers found tachyon velocity. Approach: In this research, Einstein’s variation of mass with velocity equation was transformed into quadratic equation. We introduced a new hypothesis to find the roots of the quadratic equation. Results: By introducing a new hypothesis in tachyon algebra, the researchers found that the velocity of superluminal objects with respect to us is v = c√3 where c is the velocity of the light. Conclusion/Recommendations: But the road to tachyon is too long. Hereafter it is up to experimental physicists to establish the existence/generation of tachyons.

    2013-01-01

    Algebraic logic is a subject in the interface between logic, algebra and geometry, it has strong connections with category theory and combinatorics. Tarski’s quest for finding structure in logic leads to cylindric-like algebras as studied in this book, they are among the main players in Tarskian algebraic logic. Cylindric algebra theory can be viewed in many ways:  as an algebraic form of definability theory, as a study of higher-dimensional relations, as an enrichment of Boolean Algebra theory, or, as logic in geometric form (“cylindric” in the name refers to geometric aspects). Cylindric-like algebras have a wide range of applications, in, e.g., natural language theory, data-base theory, stochastics, and even in relativity theory. The present volume, consisting of 18 survey papers, intends to give an overview of the main achievements and new research directions in the past 30 years, since the publication of the Henkin-Monk-Tarski monographs. It is dedicated to the memory of Leon Henkin.

    Written by pioneers in this exciting new field, Algebraic Statistics introduces the application of polynomial algebra to experimental design, discrete probability, and statistics. It begins with an introduction to Gröbner bases and a thorough description of their applications to experimental design. A special chapter covers the binary case with new application to coherent systems in reliability and two level factorial designs. The work paves the way, in the last two chapters, for the application of computer algebra to discrete probability and statistical modelling through the important concept of an algebraic statistical model.As the first book on the subject, Algebraic Statistics presents many opportunities for spin-off research and applications and should become a landmark work welcomed by both the statistical community and its relatives in mathematics and computer science.

  16. GNSS algebraic structures

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lannes, A.; Teunissen, P. J. G.

    2011-05-01

    The first objective of this paper is to show that some basic concepts used in global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) are similar to those introduced in Fourier synthesis for handling some phase calibration problems. In experimental astronomy, the latter are at the heart of what is called `phase closure imaging.' In both cases, the analysis of the related structures appeals to the algebraic graph theory and the algebraic number theory. For example, the estimable functions of carrier-phase ambiguities, which were introduced in GNSS to correct some rank defects of the undifferenced equations, prove to be `closure-phase ambiguities:' the so-called `closure-delay' (CD) ambiguities. The notion of closure delay thus generalizes that of double difference (DD). The other estimable functional variables involved in the phase and code undifferenced equations are the receiver and satellite pseudo-clock biases. A related application, which corresponds to the second objective of this paper, concerns the definition of the clock information to be broadcasted to the network users for their precise point positioning (PPP). It is shown that this positioning can be achieved by simply having access to the satellite pseudo-clock biases. For simplicity, the study is restricted to relatively small networks. Concerning the phase for example, these biases then include five components: a frequency-dependent satellite-clock error, a tropospheric satellite delay, an ionospheric satellite delay, an initial satellite phase, and an integer satellite ambiguity. The form of the PPP equations to be solved by the network user is then similar to that of the traditional PPP equations. As soon as the CD ambiguities are fixed and validated, an operation which can be performed in real time via appropriate decorrelation techniques, estimates of these float biases can be immediately obtained. No other ambiguity is to be fixed. The satellite pseudo-clock biases can thus be obtained in real time. This is

  17. Shifted genus expanded W ∞ algebra and shifted Hurwitz numbers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zheng, Quan

    2016-05-01

    We construct the shifted genus expanded W ∞ algebra, which is isomorphic to the central subalgebra A ∞ of infinite symmetric group algebra and to the shifted Schur symmetrical function algebra Λ* defined by Okounkov and Olshanskii. As an application, we get some differential equations for the generating functions of the shifted Hurwitz numbers; thus, we can express the generating functions in terms of the shifted genus expanded cut-and-join operators.

  18. Bases of Schur algebras associated to cellularly stratified diagram algebras

    CERN Document Server

    Bowman, C

    2011-01-01

    We examine homomorphisms between induced modules for a certain class of cellularly stratified diagram algebras, including the BMW algebra, Temperley-Lieb algebra, Brauer algebra, and (quantum) walled Brauer algebra. We define the `permutation' modules for these algebras, these are one-sided ideals which allow us to study the diagrammatic Schur algebras of Hartmann, Henke, Koenig and Paget. We construct bases of these Schur algebras in terms of modified tableaux. On the way we prove that the (quantum) walled Brauer algebra and the Temperley-Lieb algebra are both cellularly stratified and therefore have well-defined Specht filtrations.

    We compute complete leading logarithms in $\\Phi^4$ theory with the help of Connes and Kreimer RG equations. These equations are defined in the Lie algebra dual to the Hopf algebra of graphs. The results are compared with calculations in parquet approximation. An interpretation of the new RG equations is discussed.

  20. Algebraic relaxation of a time correlation function

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A second order non-linear differential equation obtained from Mori's integro- differential equation is shown to transform to another form which provides algebraic decay to a time correlation function. Involved parameters in algebraic formula are related to exact properties of the corresponding correlation function. The model has been used to study a sol-gel system which is known, experimentally, to exhibit a power law decay to stress auto-correlation function. The expression obtained for the viscosity shows a logarithmic divergence at some critical value of the parameter. Some features of the model have also been tested using available information about Lennard-Jones fluids. (author)

    1989-01-01

    The symbolic computation of operator expansions is discussed. Some of the capabilities that prove useful when performing computer algebra computations involving operators are considered. These capabilities may be broadly divided into three areas: the algebraic manipulation of expressions from the algebra generated by operators; the algebraic manipulation of the actions of the operators upon other mathematical objects; and the development of appropriate normal forms and simplification algorithms for operators and their actions. Brief descriptions are given of the computer algebra computations that arise when working with various operators and their actions.

    We study the structure of split Malcev algebras of arbitrary dimension over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. We show that any such algebras is of the form $M=\\mathcal{U}+\\sum_jI_j$ with $\\mathcal{U}$ a subspace of the abelian Malcev subalgebra and any $I_j$ a well described ideal of satisfying $[I_j, I_k]=0$ if ≠ . Under certain conditions, the simplicity of is characterized and it is shown that is the direct sum of a semisimple split Lie algebra and a direct sum of simple non-Lie Malcev algebras.

    We study some properies of $Z^{*}$ algebras, thos C^* algebra which all positive elements are zero divisors. We show by means of an example that an extension of a Z* algebra by a Z* algebra is not necessarily Z* algebra. However we prove that an extension of a non Z* algebra by a non Z* algebra is again a Z^* algebra. As an application of our methods, we prove that evey compact subset of the positive cones of a C* algebra has an upper bound in the algebra.

    OpenAIRE

    2012-01-01

    The paper is devoted to 2-local derivations on matrix algebras over commutative regular algebras. We give necessary and sufficient conditions on a commutative regular algebra to admit 2-local derivations which are not derivations. We prove that every 2-local derivation on a matrix algebra over a commutative regular algebra is a derivation. We apply these results to 2-local derivations on algebras of measurable and locally measurable operators affiliated with type I von Neumann algebras.

  7. Operator Algebras of Functions

    CERN Document Server

    Mittal, Meghna

    2009-01-01

    We present some general theorems about operator algebras that are algebras of functions on sets, including theories of local algebras, residually finite dimensional operator algebras and algebras that can be represented as the scalar multipliers of a vector-valued reproducing kernel Hilbert space. We use these to further develop a quantized function theory for various domains that extends and unifies Agler's theory of commuting contractions and the Arveson-Drury-Popescu theory of commuting row contractions. We obtain analogous factorization theorems, prove that the algebras that we obtain are dual operator algebras and show that for many domains, supremums over all commuting tuples of operators satisfying certain inequalities are obtained over all commuting tuples of matrices.

  8. Lectures on algebraic statistics

    CERN Document Server

    Drton, Mathias; Sullivant, Seth

    2009-01-01

    How does an algebraic geometer studying secant varieties further the understanding of hypothesis tests in statistics? Why would a statistician working on factor analysis raise open problems about determinantal varieties? Connections of this type are at the heart of the new field of "algebraic statistics". In this field, mathematicians and statisticians come together to solve statistical inference problems using concepts from algebraic geometry as well as related computational and combinatorial techniques. The goal of these lectures is to introduce newcomers from the different camps to algebraic statistics. The introduction will be centered around the following three observations: many important statistical models correspond to algebraic or semi-algebraic sets of parameters; the geometry of these parameter spaces determines the behaviour of widely used statistical inference procedures; computational algebraic geometry can be used to study parameter spaces and other features of statistical models.

  9. The graded Lie algebra of general relativity

    CERN Document Server

    Reiterer, Michael

    2014-01-01

    We construct a graded Lie algebra in which a solution to the vacuum Einstein equations is any element of degree 1 whose bracket with itself is zero. Each solution generates a cochain complex, whose first cohomology is linearized gravity about that solution. We gauge-fix to get a smaller cochain complex with the same cohomologies (deformation retraction). The new complex is much smaller, it consists of the solution spaces of linear homogeneous wave equations (symmetric hyperbolic equations). The algorithm that produces these gauges and wave equations is both for linearized gravity and the full Einstein equations. The gauge groupoid is the groupoid of rank 2 complex vector bundles.

Several members of the infinite set of conserved quantities are derived explicitly. (author)

  13. On Derivations Of Genetic Algebras

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A genetic algebra is a (possibly non-associative) algebra used to model inheritance in genetics. In application of genetics this algebra often has a basis corresponding to genetically different gametes, and the structure constant of the algebra encode the probabilities of producing offspring of various types. In this paper, we find the connection between the genetic algebras and evolution algebras. Moreover, we prove the existence of nontrivial derivations of genetic algebras in dimension two

  14. On Generalized I-Algebras and 4-valued Modal Algebras

    CERN Document Server

    Figallo, Aldo V

    2012-01-01

    In this paper we establish a new characterization of 4-valued modal algebras considered by A. Monteiro. In order to obtain this characterization we introduce a new class of algebras named generalized I-algebras. This class contains strictly the class of C-algebras defined by Y. Komori as an algebraic counterpart of the infinite-valued implicative Lukasiewicz propositional calculus. On the other hand, the relationship between I-algebras and conmutative BCK-algebras, defined by S. Tanaka in 1975, allows us to say that in a certain sense G-algebras are also a generalization of these latter algebras

  19. Conformal and current algebras on a general Riemann surface

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Starting from a path integral formulation, Ward identifies are derived for conformal algebras on a general Riemann surface. An n + 1-point amplitude with energy-momentum tensor insertion is related by the Ward identity to an n-point amplitude and its derivative with respect to the modular parameters. This paper discusses how conformal algebra, defined in each coordinate path, is glued together to form a global algebraic structure on the Riemann surface. The authors discuss differential equations for correlation and partition functions of a theory corresponding to a degenerates representation of virasoro algebra

  20. Lax operator algebras and Hamiltonian integrable hierarchies

    CERN Document Server

    Sheinman, Oleg K

    2009-01-01

    We consider the theory of Lax equations in complex simple and reductive classical Lie algebras with the spectral parameter on a Riemann surface of finite genus. Our approach is based on the new objects -- the Lax operator algebras, and develops the approach of I.Krichever treating the $\\gl(n)$ case. For every Lax operator considered as the mapping sending a point of the cotangent bundle on the space of extended Tyrin data to an element of the corresponding Lax operator algebra we construct the hierarchy of mutually commuting flows given by Lax equations and prove that those are Hamiltonian with respect to the Krichever-Phong symplectic structure. The corresponding Hamiltonians give integrable finite-dimensional Hitchin-type systems. For example we derive elliptic $A_n$, $C_n$, $D_n$ Calogero-Moser systems in frame of our approach.

  2. Evolution algebras and their applications

    CERN Document Server

    Tian, Jianjun Paul

    2008-01-01

    Behind genetics and Markov chains, there is an intrinsic algebraic structure. It is defined as a type of new algebra: as evolution algebra. This concept lies between algebras and dynamical systems. Algebraically, evolution algebras are non-associative Banach algebras; dynamically, they represent discrete dynamical systems. Evolution algebras have many connections with other mathematical fields including graph theory, group theory, stochastic processes, dynamical systems, knot theory, 3-manifolds, and the study of the Ihara-Selberg zeta function. In this volume the foundation of evolution algebra theory and applications in non-Mendelian genetics and Markov chains is developed, with pointers to some further research topics.

  5. Four Lie algebras associated with R6 and their applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhang, Yufeng; Tam, Honwah

    2010-09-01

    The first part in the paper reads that a three-dimensional Lie algebra is first introduced, whose corresponding loop algebra is constructed, for which isospectral problems are established. By employing zero curvature equations, a modified Kaup-Newell (mKN) soliton hierarchy of evolution equations is obtained. The corresponding hereditary operator and Hamiltonian structure are worked out, respectively. Then two types of enlarging semisimple Lie algebras isomorphic to the linear space R6 are followed to construct, one of them is a complex Lie algebra. Their corresponding loop algebras are also given so that two types of new isospectral problems are introduced to generate two kinds of integrable couplings of the above mKN hierarchy. The hereditary operators, Hamiltonian structures of the hierarchies are produced again, respectively. The exact computing formulas of the constant γ appearing in the trace identity and the variational identity are derived under the semisimple algebras. The second part of this paper is devoted to constructing two kinds of Lie algebras by using product of complex vectors, which are also isomorphic to the linear space R6. Then we make use of the corresponding loop algebras to produce two integrable hierarchies along with bi-Hamiltonian structures. From various aspects, we give some ways for constructing Lie algebras which have extensive applications in generating integrable Hamiltonian systems.

    2015-01-01

    This course-based primer provides an introduction to Lie algebras and some of their applications to the spectroscopy of molecules, atoms, nuclei and hadrons. In the first part, it concisely presents the basic concepts of Lie algebras, their representations and their invariants. The second part includes a description of how Lie algebras are used in practice in the treatment of bosonic and fermionic systems. Physical applications considered include rotations and vibrations of molecules (vibron model), collective modes in nuclei (interacting boson model), the atomic shell model, the nuclear shell model, and the quark model of hadrons. One of the key concepts in the application of Lie algebraic methods in physics, that of spectrum generating algebras and their associated dynamic symmetries, is also discussed. The book highlights a number of examples that help to illustrate the abstract algebraic definitions and includes a summary of many formulas of practical interest, such as the eigenvalues of Casimir operators...

    For a quiver with weighted arrows we define gauge-theory K-theoretic W-algebra generalizing the definition of Shiraishi et al., and Frenkel and Reshetikhin. In particular, we show that the qq-character construction of gauge theory presented by Nekrasov is isomorphic to the definition of the W-algebra in the operator formalism as a commutant of screening charges in the free field representation. Besides, we allow arbitrary quiver and expect interesting applications to representation theory of generalized Borcherds-Kac-Moody Lie algebras, their quantum affinizations and associated W-algebras.

    CERN Document Server

    Hoeven, Joris

    Transseries are formal objects constructed from an infinitely large variable x and the reals using infinite summation, exponentiation and logarithm. They are suitable for modeling "strongly monotonic" or "tame" asymptotic solutions to differential equations and find their origin in at least three different areas of mathematics: analysis, model theory and computer algebra. They play a crucial role in Écalle's proof of Dulac's conjecture, which is closely related to Hilbert's 16th problem. The aim of the present book is to give a detailed and self-contained exposition of the theory of transseries, in the hope of making it more accessible to non-specialists.

  7. Algebraic analysis of minimal representations

    CERN Document Server

    Kobayashi, Toshiyuki

    2010-01-01

    Small representations of a group bring us to large symmetries in a representation space. Analysis on minimal representations utilises large symmetries in their geometric models, and serves as a driving force in creating new interesting problems that interact with other branches of mathematics. This article discusses the following three topics that arise from minimal representations of the indefinite orthogonal group: 1. construction of conservative quantities for ultra-hyperbolic equations, 2. quantative discrete branching laws, 3. deformation of the Fourier transform with emphasis on the prominent roles of Sato's idea on algebraic analysis.

    Some properties of BZMVdM-algebra are proved, and a new operator is introduced. It is shown that the substructure of BZMVdM-algebra can produce a quasi-lattice implication algebra. The relations between BZMVdM-algebra and other algebras are discussed in detail. A pseudo-distance function is defined in linear BZMVdM-algebra, and its properties are derived.

    The purpose of this paper is to construct quotient algebras L(A)C1/I(A) of complex degenerate composition Lie algebras L(A)C1 by some ideals, where L(A)C1 is defined via Hall algebras of tubular algebras A, and to prove that the quotient algebras L(A)C1/I(A) are isomorphic to the corresponding affine Kac-Moody algebras.

    In this paper we show that a strongly homotopy commutative (or $C_\\infty$-) algebra with an invariant inner product on its cohomology can be uniquely extended to a symplectic $C_\\infty$-algebra (an $\\infty$-generalisation of a commutative Frobenius algebra introduced by Kontsevich). This result relies on the algebraic Hodge decomposition of the cyclic Hochschild cohomology of a $\\ci$-algebra and does not generalize to algebras over other operads.

    A smooth affine algebraic variety $X$ equipped with an algebraic volume form $\\omega$ has the algebraic volume density property (AVDP) if the Lie algebra generated by completely integrable algebraic vector fields of $\\omega$-divergence zero coincides with the space of all algebraic vector fields of $\\omega$-divergence zero. We develop an effective criterion of verifying whether a given $X$ has AVDP. As an application of this method we establish AVDP for any homogeneous space $X=G/R$ that admi...

Using auto-invariance, we find the automorphism groups of the Laurent extension of the polynomial ring and the quantum n-plane (respectively, twisting polynomial ring) in this work. As an application of the results of this work, we can find the automorphism group of a twisting algebra. We define a generalized Weyl algebra and show that the generalized Weyl algebra is simple.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Traces of powers of the zero mode in the W3 Algebra have recently been found to be of interest, for example in relation to Black Hole thermodynamics, and arise as the terms in an expansion of the full characters of the algebra. We calculate the first few such powers in two cases. Firstly, we find the traces in the 3-state Potts model by using null vectors to derive modular differential equations for the traces. Secondly, we calculate the exact results for Verma module representations. We compare our two methods with each other and the result of brute-force diagonalisation for low levels and find complete agreement

    Six new infinite series of trigonometric solutions to triangule equations (quantum R-matrices) associated with the nonexceptional simple Lie algebras: sl(N), sp(N), o(N) have been obtained. R-matrices are given in two equivalent representations: in an additive one (as a sum of poles with matrix coefficients) and in a multiplicative one (as a ratio of entire matrix functions). These R-matrices provide an exact integrability of anisotropic generalizations of sl(N), sp(N), o(N) invariant one-dimensional lattice magnetics and two-dimensional periodic Toda lattices associated with the above algebras

  11. Unifying Clifford algebra formalism for relativistic fields

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It is shown that a Clifford algebra formalism provides a unifying description of spin-0, -1/2, and -1 fields. Since the operators and operands are both expressed in terms of the same Clifford algebra, the formalism obtains some results which are considerably different from those of the standard of formalisms for these fields. In particular, the conservation laws are obtained uniquely and unambiguously from the equations of motion in this formalism and do not suffer from the ambiguities and inconsistencies of the standard methods

    CERN Document Server

    Bourbaki, Nicolas

    2003-01-01

    This is a softcover reprint of the English translation of 1990 of the revised and expanded version of Bourbaki's, Algèbre, Chapters 4 to 7 (1981). This completes Algebra, 1 to 3, by establishing the theories of commutative fields and modules over a principal ideal domain. Chapter 4 deals with polynomials, rational fractions and power series. A section on symmetric tensors and polynomial mappings between modules, and a final one on symmetric functions, have been added. Chapter 5 was entirely rewritten. After the basic theory of extensions (prime fields, algebraic, algebraically closed, radical extension), separable algebraic extensions are investigated, giving way to a section on Galois theory. Galois theory is in turn applied to finite fields and abelian extensions. The chapter then proceeds to the study of general non-algebraic extensions which cannot usually be found in textbooks: p-bases, transcendental extensions, separability criterions, regular extensions. Chapter 6 treats ordered groups and fields and...

  13. Introduction to noncommutative algebra

    CERN Document Server

    Brešar, Matej

    2014-01-01

    Providing an elementary introduction to noncommutative rings and algebras, this textbook begins with the classical theory of finite dimensional algebras. Only after this, modules, vector spaces over division rings, and tensor products are introduced and studied. This is followed by Jacobson's structure theory of rings. The final chapters treat free algebras, polynomial identities, and rings of quotients. Many of the results are not presented in their full generality. Rather, the emphasis is on clarity of exposition and simplicity of the proofs, with several being different from those in other texts on the subject. Prerequisites are kept to a minimum, and new concepts are introduced gradually and are carefully motivated. Introduction to Noncommutative Algebra is therefore accessible to a wide mathematical audience. It is, however, primarily intended for beginning graduate and advanced undergraduate students encountering noncommutative algebra for the first time.

    Despite improvements in cancer therapy and treatments, tumor recurrence is a common event in cancer patients. One explanation of recurrence is that cancer therapy focuses on treatment of tumor cells and does not eradicate cancer stem cells (CSCs). CSCs are postulated to behave similar to normal stem cells in that their role is to maintain homeostasis. That is, when the population of tumor cells is reduced or depleted by treatment, CSCs will repopulate the tumor, causing recurrence. In this pa...

    2008-01-01

    If a vertex operator algebra $V=\\oplus_{n=0}^{\\infty}V_n$ satisfies $\\dim V_0=1, V_1=0$, then $V_2$ has a commutative (nonassociative) algebra structure called Griess algebra. One of the typical examples of commutative (nonassociative) algebras is a Jordan algebra. For example, the set $Sym_d(\\C)$ of symmetric matrices of degree $d$ becomes a Jordan algebra. On the other hand, in the theory of vertex operator algebras, central charges influence the properties of vertex operator algebras. In t...

  16. The algebraic locus of Feynman integrals

    CERN Document Server

    Kol, Barak

    2016-01-01

    In the Symmetries of Feynman Integrals (SFI) approach, a diagram's parameter space is foliated by orbits of a Lie group associated with the diagram. SFI is related to the important methods of Integrations By Parts and of Differential Equations. It is shown that sometimes there exist a locus in parameter space where the set of SFI differential equations degenerates into an algebraic equation, thereby enabling a solution in terms of integrals associated with degenerations of the diagram. This is demonstrated by the two-loop vacuum diagram, where the algebraic locus can be interpreted as a threshold phenomenon and is given by the zeros of the Baikov polynomial. In addition, the symmetry group is interpreted geometrically as linear transformations of loop currents which preserve the subspace of squared currents within the space of quadratics in loop currents.

  17. Lattice Landau Gauge and Algebraic Geometry

    CERN Document Server

    Mehta, Dhagash; von Smekal, Lorenz; Williams, Anthony G

    2009-01-01

    Finding the global minimum of a multivariate function efficiently is a fundamental yet difficult problem in many branches of theoretical physics and chemistry. However, we observe that there are many physical systems for which the extremizing equations have polynomial-like non-linearity. This allows the use of Algebraic Geometry techniques to solve these equations completely. The global minimum can then straightforwardly be found by the second derivative test. As a warm-up example, here we study lattice Landau gauge for compact U(1) and propose two methods to solve the corresponding gauge-fixing equations. In a first step, we obtain all Gribov copies on one and two dimensional lattices. For simple 3x3 systems their number can already be of the order of thousands. We anticipate that the computational and numerical algebraic geometry methods employed have far-reaching implications beyond the simple but illustrating examples discussed here.

    To a semisimple and cosemisimple Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field, we associate a planar algebra defined by generators and relations and show that it is a connected, irreducible, spherical, non-degenerate planar algebra with non-zero modulus and of depth two. This association is shown to yield a bijection between (the isomorphism classes, on both sides, of) such objects.

    2006-01-01

    The abc-conjecture for the ring of integers states that, for every ε> 0 and every triple of relatively prime nonzero integers (a, b, c) satisfying a + b = c, we have max(|a|, |b|, |c|) ≤ rad(abc)1+ε with a finite number of exceptions. Here the radical rad(m) is the product of all distinct prime factors of m.In the present paper we propose an abc-conjecture for the field of all algebraic numbers. It is based on the definition of the radical (in Section 1) and of the height (in Section 2) of an algebraic number.From this abc-conjecture we deduce some versions of Fermat's last theorem for the field of all algebraic numbers, and we discuss from this point of view known results on solutions of Fermat's equation in fields of small degrees over Q.

  3. Algebraic classification of Robinson-Trautman spacetimes

    CERN Document Server

    Podolsky, Jiri

    2016-01-01

    We consider a general class of four-dimensional geometries admitting a null vector field that has no twist and no shear but has an arbitrary expansion. We explicitly present the Petrov classification of such Robinson-Trautman (and Kundt) gravitational fields, based on the algebraic properties of the Weyl tensor. In particular, we determine all algebraically special subcases when the optically privileged null vector field is a multiple principal null direction (PND), as well as all the cases when it remains a single PND. No field equations are a priori applied, so that our classification scheme can be used in any metric theory of gravity in four dimensions. In the classic Einstein theory this reproduces previous results for vacuum spacetimes, possibly with a cosmological constant, pure radiation and electromagnetic field, but can be applied to an arbitrary matter content. As non-trivial explicit examples we investigate specific algebraic properties of the Robinson-Trautman spacetimes with a free scalar field, ...

A new nonbraided algebra whose coalgebra structure is the same as the braided one is found to be a two parameter deformed algebra.

    The stabilized Poincare-Heisenberg algebra (SPHA) is the Lie algebra of quantum relativistic kinematics generated by fifteen generators. It is obtained from imposing stability conditions after attempting to combine the Lie algebras of quantum mechanics and relativity which by themselves are stable, however not when combined.

At the core of algebraic signal processing is the concept of a linear signal model defined as a triple (A, M, phi), where familiar concepts like the filter space and the signal space are cast as an algebra A and a module M, respectively, and phi generalizes the concept of the z-transform to bijective linear mappings from a vector space of, e.g., signal samples, into the module M.

We show that for $W$ acyclic, the cohomology of the quotient $H(W/)$ is isomorphic to a Clifford algebra $\\text{Cl}(P,B)$, where the (possibly degenerate) bilinear form $B$ depends on $W$. This observation is an analogue of an old result of Borel in a non-commutative context. As an application, we study the case of $W$ given by ...

We can choose $V$ so that if $A$ has a unit $e$, then $2e$ is the Virasoro element of $V$, and if $G$ is a finite group of automorphisms of $A$, then $G$ acts on $V$ as well. In addition, the algebra $V$ can be chosen with...

    "Control theory represents an attempt to codify, in mathematical terms, the principles and techniques used in the analysis and design of control systems. Algebraic geometry may, in an elementary way, be viewed as the study of the structure and properties of the solutions of systems of algebraic equations.

    Vacuum gravitational fields invariant for a bidimensional non Abelian Lie algebra of Killing fields, are explicitly described. They are parameterized either by solutions of a transcendental equation (the tortoise equation) or by solutions of a linear second order differential equation on the plane. Gravitational fields determined via the tortoise equation, are invariant for a 3-dimensional Lie algebra of Killing fields with bidimensional leaves. Global gravitational fields out of local ones are also constructed.

    Full Text Available Lichnerowicz's algebra of differential geometric operators acting on symmetric tensors can be obtained from generalized geodesic motion of an observer carrying a complex tangent vector. This relation is based upon quantizing the classical evolution equations, and identifying wavefunctions with sections of the symmetric tensor bundle and Noether charges with geometric operators. In general curved spaces these operators obey a deformation of the Fourier-Jacobi Lie algebra of sp(2,R. These results have already been generalized by the authors to arbitrary tensor and spinor bundles using supersymmetric quantum mechanical models and have also been applied to the theory of higher spin particles. These Proceedings review these results in their simplest, symmetric tensor setting. New results on a novel and extremely useful reformulation of the rank 2 deformation of the Fourier-Jacobi Lie algebra in terms of an associative algebra are also presented. This new algebra was originally motivated by studies of operator orderings in enveloping algebras. It provides a new method that is superior in many respects to common techniques such as Weyl or normal ordering.

  17. Riemann surfaces, Clifford algebras and infinite dimensional groups

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We introduce of class of Riemann surfaces which possess a fixed point free involution and line bundles over these surfaces with which we can associate an infinite dimensional Clifford algebra. Acting by automorphisms of this algebra is a 'gauge' group of meromorphic functions on the Riemann surface. There is a natural Fock representation of the Clifford algebra and an associated projective representation of this group of meromorphic functions in close analogy with the construction of the basic representation of Kac-Moody algebras via a Fock representation of the Fermion algebra. In the genus one case we find a form of vertex operator construction which allows us to prove a version of the Boson-Fermion correspondence. These results are motivated by the analysis of soliton solutions of the Landau-Lifshitz equation and are rather distinct from recent developments in quantum field theory on Riemann surfaces. (orig.)

    Lie-Yamaguti algebras (or generalized Lie triple systems) are binary-ternary algebras intimately related to reductive homogeneous spaces. The Lie-Yamaguti algebras which are irreducible as modules over their Lie inner derivation algebra are the algebraic counterpart of the isotropy irreducible homogeneous spaces. These systems will be shown to split into three disjoint types: adjoint type, non-simple type and generic type. The systems of the first two types will be classified and most of them...

  19. Hom-power associative algebras

    A generalization of power associative algebra, called Hom-power associative algebra, is studied. The main result says that a multiplicative Hom-algebra is Hom-power associative if and only if it satisfies two identities of degrees three and four. It generalizes Albert's result that power associativity is equivalent to third and fourth power associativity. In particular, multiplicative right Hom-alternative algebras and non-commutative Hom-Jordan algebras are Hom-power associative.

  20. Unitary spaces on Clifford algebras

    For the complex Clifford algebra Cl(p,q) of dimension n=p+q we define a Hermitian scalar product. This scalar product depends on the signature (p,q) of Clifford algebra. So, we arrive at unitary spaces on Clifford algebras. With the aid of Hermitian idempotents we suggest a new construction of, so called, normal matrix representations of Clifford algebra elements. These representations take into account the structure of unitary space on Clifford algebra.
