Numerical integration of asymptotic solutions of ordinary differential equations
Thurston, Gaylen A.
1989-01-01
Classical asymptotic analysis of ordinary differential equations derives approximate solutions that are numerically stable. However, the analysis also leads to tedious expansions in powers of the relevant parameter for a particular problem. The expansions are replaced with integrals that can be evaluated by numerical integration. The resulting numerical solutions retain the linear independence that is the main advantage of asymptotic solutions. Examples, including the Falkner-Skan equation from laminar boundary layer theory, illustrate the method of asymptotic analysis with numerical integration.
On Approximate Asymptotic Solution of Integral Equations
Jikia, Vagner
2013-01-01
It is well known that multi-particle integral equations of collision theory, in general, are not compact. At the same time it has been shown that the motion of three and four particles is described with consistent integral equations. In particular, by using identical transformations of the kernel of the Lipman-Schwinger equation for certain classes of potentials Faddeev obtained Fredholm type integral equations for three-particle problems $[1]$. The motion of for bodies is described by equations of Yakubovsky and Alt-Grassberger-Sandhas-Khelashvili $[2.3]$, which are obtained as a result of two subsequent transpormations of the kernel of Lipman-Schwinger equation. in the case of $N>4$ the compactness of multi-particle equations has not been proven yet. In turn out that for sufficiently high energies the $N$-particle $\\left( {N \\ge 3} \\right)$ dynamic equations have correct asymptotic solutions satisfying unitary condition $[4]$. In present paper by using the Heitler formalism we obtain the results briefly sum...
Asymptotic Solutions of Serial Radial Fuel Shuffling
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Xue-Nong Chen
2015-12-01
Full Text Available In this paper, the mechanism of traveling wave reactors (TWRs is investigated from the mathematical physics point of view, in which a stationary fission wave is formed by radial fuel drifting. A two dimensional cylindrically symmetric core is considered and the fuel is assumed to drift radially according to a continuous fuel shuffling scheme. A one-group diffusion equation with burn-up dependent macroscopic coefficients is set up. The burn-up dependent macroscopic coefficients were assumed to be known as functions of neutron fluence. By introducing the effective multiplication factor keff, a nonlinear eigenvalue problem is formulated. The 1-D stationary cylindrical coordinate problem can be solved successively by analytical and numerical integrations for associated eigenvalues keff. Two representative 1-D examples are shown for inward and outward fuel drifting motions, respectively. The inward fuel drifting has a higher keff than the outward one. The 2-D eigenvalue problem has to be solved by a more complicated method, namely a pseudo time stepping iteration scheme. Its 2-D asymptotic solutions are obtained together with certain eigenvalues keff for several fuel inward drifting speeds. Distributions of the neutron flux, the neutron fluence, the infinity multiplication factor kinf and the normalized power are presented for two different drifting speeds.
An asymptotic solution of large-N QCD
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Bochicchio Marco
2014-01-01
Full Text Available We find an asymptotic solution for two-, three- and multi-point correlators of local gauge-invariant operators, in a lower-spin sector of massless large-N QCD, in terms of glueball and meson propagators, in such a way that the solution is asymptotic in the ultraviolet to renormalization-group improved perturbation theory, by means of a new purely field-theoretical technique that we call the asymptotically-free bootstrap, based on a recently-proved asymptotic structure theorem for two-point correlators. The asymptotically-free bootstrap provides as well asymptotic S-matrix amplitudes in terms of glueball and meson propagators. Remarkably, the asymptotic S-matrix depends only on the unknown particle spectrum, but not on the anomalous dimensions, as a consequence of the LS Z reduction formulae. Very many physics consequences follow, both practically and theoretically. In fact, the asymptotic solution sets the strongest constraints on any actual solution of large-N QCD, and in particular on any string solution.

Asymptotic solutions of one-dimensional and scalar magnetohydrodynamics equations near the derivatives discontinuity lines have been discussed. The equations of magnetohydrodynamics for the cases of finite and infinite conductivities are formulated and the problem of eigenvalues and eigenvectors is solved. The so called transport equations which describe the behaviour of derivatives in solutions of the quasilinear equations have been used to find the asymptotic solutions of the magnetohydrodynamics equations.

Liang, Jin; Wu, Yuan; Hu, Bei
2016-07-01
In this paper, an asymptotic traveling wave solution of a free boundary model for pricing a corporate bond with credit rating migration risk is studied. This is the first study to associate the asymptotic traveling wave solution to the credit rating migration problem. The pricing problem with credit rating migration risk is modeled by a free boundary problem. The existence, uniqueness and regularity of the solution are obtained. Under some condition, we proved that the solution of our credit rating problem is convergent to a traveling wave solution, which has an explicit form. Furthermore, numerical examples are presented.

This paper uses the boundary layer theory to obtain an asymptotic solution of the nonlinear educed wave equation.

2015-10-01
Full Text Available In this article we employ an oscillatory condition on the nonlinear term, to prove the existence of a connected component of solutions of a nonlinear problem, which bifurcates from infinity and asymptotically oscillates over an interval of parameter values. An interesting and immediate consequence of such oscillation property of the connected component is the existence of infinitely many solutions to the nonlinear problem for all parameter values in that interval.

A model of nonlinear electrodynamics coupled with the gravitational field is studied. We obtain the asymptotic black hole solutions at $r\\rightarrow 0$ and $r\\rightarrow \\infty$. The asymptotic at $r\\rightarrow 0$ is shown, and we find corrections to the Reissner-Nordstr\\"om solution and Coulomb's law at $r\\rightarrow\\infty$. The mass of the black hole is evaluated having the electromagnetic origin. We investigate the thermodynamics of charged black holes and their thermal stability. The critical point corresponding to the second-order phase transition (where heat capacity diverges) is found. If the mass of the black hole is greater than the critical mass, the black hole becomes unstable.

An Asymptotic Solution for the Navier-Stokes Equation

We have used as the velocity field of a fluid the functional form derived in Casuso (2007), obtained by studying the origin of turbulence as a consequence of a new de- scription of the density distribution of matter as a modified discontinuous Dirichlet in- tegral. As an interesting result we have found that this functional form for velocities is a solution to the Navier-Stokes equation when considering asymptotic behaviour, i.e. for large values of time.

Solute transport through porous media using asymptotic dispersivity
Indian Academy of Sciences (India)
P K Sharma; Teodrose Atnafu Abgaze
2015-08-01
In this paper, multiprocess non-equilibrium transport equation has been used, which accounts for both physical and chemical non-equilibrium for reactive transport through porous media. An asymptotic distance dependent dispersivity is used to embrace the concept of scale-dependent dispersion for solute transport in heterogeneous porous media. Semi-analytical solution has been derived of the governing equations with an asymptotic distance dependent dispersivity by using Laplace transform technique and the power series method. For application of analytical model, we simulated observed experimental breakthrough curves from 1500 cm long soil column experiments conducted in the laboratory. The simulation results of break-through curves were found to deviate from the observed breakthrough curves for both mobile–immobile and multiprocess non-equilibrium transport with constant dispersion models. However, multiprocess non-equilibrium with an asymptotic dispersion model gives better fit of experimental breakthrough curves through long soil column and hence it is more useful for describing anomalous solute transport through hetero-geneous porous media. The present model is simpler than the stochastic numerical method.

To understand well the shape of the solution $u_lambda$ when $lambda gg 1$, we establish the leading and second terms of $Vert u_lambdaVert_q$ ($1 le q < infty$ with the estimate of third term as $lambda o infty$. We also obtain the asymptotic formula for $u_lambda'(R$ as $lambda o infty$.
Stokes Waves Revisited: Exact Solutions in the Asymptotic Limit
Davies, Megan
2016-01-01
Stokes perturbative solution of the nonlinear (boundary value dependent) surface gravity wave problem is known to provide results of reasonable accuracy to engineers in estimating the phase speed and amplitudes of such nonlinear waves. The weakling in this structure though is the presence of aperiodic secular variation in the solution that does not agree with the known periodic propagation of surface waves. This has historically necessitated increasingly higher ordered (perturbative) approximations in the representation of the velocity profile. The present article ameliorates this long standing theoretical insufficiency by invoking a compact exact $n$-ordered solution in the asymptotic infinite depth limit, primarily based on a representation structured around the third ordered perturbative solution, that leads to a seamless extension to higher order (e.g. fifth order) forms existing in the literature. The result from this study is expected to improve phenomenological engineering estimates, now that any desir...
Global, uniform, asymptotic wave-equation solutions for large wavenumbers
Klauder, John R.
1987-11-01
For each of a large class of linear wave equations-relevant, for example, to very general acoustical or optical propagation problems-we develop within a single expression a global, uniform, asymptotic solution for large wavenumbers (small wavelengths) based on coherentstate transformation techniques. Such techniques effectively separate the configuration-space field into its orientational components, and are thus analogous to a phase-space description of rays by their position and direction. The resultant coherent-state approximation offers distinct advantages over more traditional asymptotic approximations based on direct or Fourier transform techniques. In particular, coherent-state methods lead to an everywhere well-defined approximation independent of the complexity of the caustic structure, independent of whether there are a few or a vast number of relevant rays, or even in shadow regions where no conventional rays exist. For propagation in random media it is shown that coherent-state techniques also offer certain advantages. Approximations are developed for wave equations in an arbitrary number of space dimensions for single component fields as well as multicomponent fields that, for example, can account for backscattering. It is noteworthy that the coherentstate asymptotic approximation should lend itself to numerical studies as well.

In this paper, we employ a new approximate analytical method called the optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) to solve steady state heat transfer problem in slabs. The heat transfer problem is modeled using nonlinear two-point boundary value problem. Using OHAM, we obtained the approximate analytical solution for dimensionless temperature with different values of a parameter ε. Further, the OHAM results for dimensionless temperature have been presented graphically and in tabular form. Comparison has been provided with existing results from the use of homotopy perturbation method, perturbation method and numerical method. For numerical results, we used Runge-Kutta Fehlberg fourth-fifth order method. It was found that OHAM produces better approximate analytical solutions than those which are obtained by homotopy perturbation and perturbation methods, in the sense of closer agreement with results obtained from the use of Runge-Kutta Fehlberg fourth-fifth order method.
Solution of internal erosion equations by asymptotic expansion
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Dubujet P.
2012-07-01
Full Text Available One dimensional coupled soil internal erosion and consolidation equations are considered in this work for the special case of well determined sand and clay mixtures with a small proportion of clay phase. An enhanced modelling of the effect of erosion on elastic soil behavior was introduced through damage mechanics concepts. A modified erosion law was proposed. The erosion phenomenon taking place inside the soil was shown to act like a perturbation affecting the classical soil consolidation equation. This interpretation has enabled considering an asymptotic expansion of the coupled erosion consolidation equations in terms of a perturbation parameter linked to the maximum expected internal erosion. A robust analytical solution was obtained via direct integration of equations at order zero and an adequate finite difference scheme that was applied at order one.

The authors study the asymptotic behavior of the smooth solutions to the Cauchy problems for two macroscopic models (hydrodynamic and drift-diffusion models) for semiconductors and the related relaxation limit problem. First, it is proved that the solutions to these two systems converge to the unique stationary solution time asymptotically without the smallness assumption on doping profile. Then, very sharp estimates on the smooth solutions, independent of the relaxation time, are obtained and used to establish the zero relaxation limit.

Asymptotically free scaling solutions in non-Abelian Higgs models
Gies, Holger; Zambelli, Luca
2015-07-01
We construct asymptotically free renormalization group trajectories for the generic non-Abelian Higgs model in four-dimensional spacetime. These ultraviolet-complete trajectories become visible by generalizing the renormalization/boundary conditions in the definition of the correlation functions of the theory. Though they are accessible in a controlled weak-coupling analysis, these trajectories originate from threshold phenomena which are missed in a conventional perturbative analysis relying on the deep Euclidean region. We identify a candidate three-parameter family of renormalization group trajectories interconnecting the asymptotically free ultraviolet regime with a Higgs phase in the low-energy limit. We provide estimates of their low-energy properties in the light of a possible application to the standard model Higgs sector. Finally, we find a two-parameter subclass of asymptotically free Coleman-Weinberg-type trajectories that do not suffer from a naturalness problem.

Sharp asymptotic estimates for vorticity solutions of the 2D Navier-Stokes equation
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The asymptotic dynamics of high-order temporal-spatial derivatives of the two-dimensional vorticity and velocity of an incompressible, viscous fluid flow in $mathbb{R}^2$ are studied, which is equivalent to the 2D Navier-Stokes equation. It is known that for any integrable initial vorticity, the 2D vorticity solution converges to the Oseen vortex. In this paper, sharp exterior decay estimates of the temporal-spatial derivatives of the vorticity solution are established. These estimates are then used and combined with similarity and $L^p$ compactness to show the asymptotical attraction rates of temporal-spatial derivatives of generic 2D vorticity and velocity solutions by the Oseen vortices and velocity solutions respectively. The asymptotic estimates and the asymptotic attraction rates of all the derivatives obtained in this paper are independent of low or high Reynolds numbers.

Self-similar cosmological solutions with dark energy. I. Formulation and asymptotic analysis
Harada, Tomohiro; Maeda, Hideki; Carr, B. J.
2008-01-01
Based on the asymptotic analysis of ordinary differential equations, we classify all spherically symmetric self-similar solutions to the Einstein equations which are asymptotically Friedmann at large distances and contain a perfect fluid with equation of state p=(γ-1)μ with 0antigravity. This extends the previous analysis of spherically symmetric self-similar solutions for fluids with positive pressure (γ>1). However, in the latter case there is an additional parameter associated with the weak discontinuity at the sonic point and the solutions are only asymptotically “quasi-Friedmann,” in the sense that they exhibit an angle deficit at large distances. In the 0<γ<2/3 case, there is no sonic point and there exists a one-parameter family of solutions which are genuinely asymptotically Friedmann at large distances. We find eight classes of asymptotic behavior: Friedmann or quasi-Friedmann or quasistatic or constant-velocity at large distances, quasi-Friedmann or positive-mass singular or negative-mass singular at small distances, and quasi-Kantowski-Sachs at intermediate distances. The self-similar asymptotically quasistatic and quasi-Kantowski-Sachs solutions are analytically extendible and of great cosmological interest. We also investigate their conformal diagrams. The results of the present analysis are utilized in an accompanying paper to obtain and physically interpret numerical solutions.

Non-asymptotically AdS/dS Solutions and Their Higher Dimensional Origins
Cai, R G; Cai, Rong-Gen; Wang, Anzhong
2004-01-01
We look for and analyze in some details some exact solutions of Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton gravity with one or two Liouville-type dilaton potential(s) in an arbitrary dimension. Such a theory could be obtained by dimensionally reducing Einstein-Maxwell theory with a cosmological constant to a lower dimension. These (neutral/magnetic/electric charged) solutions can have a (two) black hole horizon(s), cosmological horizon, or a naked singularity. Black hole horizon or cosmological horizon of these solutions can be a hypersurface of positive, zero or negative constant curvature. These exact solutions are neither asymptotically flat, nor asymptotically AdS/dS. But some of them can be uplifted to a higher dimension, and those higher dimensional solutions are either asymptotically flat, or asymptotically AdS/dS with/without a compact constant curvature space. This observation is useful to better understand holographic properties of these non-asymptotically AdS/dS solutions.

The asymptotic solution describing the free interface dynamics is constructed. As the small parameter tends to zero, the limiting solution satisfies the modified Stefan problem with corrected Gibbs-Thomson law. The justification of the asymptotic solution is proved.

We first consider the problem posed on a bounded domain and prove existence of maximal nonnegative viscosity solutions. Uniqueness is obtained for strictly positive solutions with Lipschitz in time data. We also describe the asymptotic behaviour for the Dirichlet problem in the class of maximal solutions. We then discuss the Cauchy problem posed in the whole space. As in the standard porous medium equa...
An exact, asymptotically flat, vacuum solution of Einstein's equations with closed timelike curves
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Solutions of Einstein's equations representing spacetimes with closed timelike curves (CTC) are commonly dismissed as unrealistic. Recently I published approximate solutions, containing CTC, which refer to ordinary sources. In this paper I present an exact vacuum solution, asymptotically flat, which contains CTC. It represents a massless rotating rod of finite length, and I give reasons why addition of mass would not abolish the CTC. I suggest that there is now an urgent need for a realistic physical interpretation of CTC in general relativity

In this paper, a revised optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) is applied to derive an explicit analytical solution of the Falkner-Skan wedge flow problem. The comparisons between the present study with the numerical solutions using (fourth order Runge-Kutta) scheme and with analytical solution using HPM-Padé of order [4/4] and order [13/13] show that the revised form of OHAM is an extremely effective analytical technique.

Asymptotic behavior of a generalized Burgers' equation solutions on a finite interval
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The article is concerned with the study of asymptotic behavior of solutions of the Burgers equation and its generalizations with initial value — boundary problem on a finite interval, with constant boundary conditions. Since these equations take a dissipation into account, it is naturally to presuppose that any initial profile will evolve to an invariant time-independent solution with the same boundary values. Yet the answer happens to be slightly more complex. There are three possibilities: the initial profile may regularly decay to an invariant solution; or a Heaviside-type gap develops through a dispersive shock and multi-oscillations; or, exotically, an asymptotic limit is a 'frozen multi-oscillation' piecewise-differentiable solution, composed of different smooth invariant solutions

We construct finite mass, asymptotically flat black hole solutions in d=5 Einstein-Yang-Mills-Chern-Simons theory. Our results indicate the existence of a second order phase transition between Reissner-Nordström solutions and the non-Abelian black holes which generically are thermodynamically preferred.

We prove the asymptotic stability of nonplanar two-states Riemann solutions in BGK approximations of a class of multidimensional systems of conservation laws. The latter consists of systems whose flux-functions in different directions share a common complete system of Riemann invariants, the level surfaces of which are hyperplanes. The asymptotic stability to which the main result refers is in the sense of the convergence as t→∞ in Lloc1 of the space of directions ζ=x/t. That is, the solution z(t,x,ξ) of the perturbed Cauchy problem for the corresponding BGK system satisfies ∫z(t,tζ,ξ) dμ(ξ)→R(ζ) as t→∞, in Lloc1(R), where R(ζ) is the self-similar entropy solution of the two-states nonplanar Riemann problem for the system of conservation laws.

The process of contaminant transport is a problem of multicomponent and multiphase flow in unsaturated zone. Under the presupposition that gas existence affects water transport , a coupled mathematical model of contaminant transport in unsaturated zone has been established based on fluid-solid interaction mechanics theory. The asymptotical solutions to the nonlinear coupling mathematical model were accomplished by the perturbation and integral transformation method. The distribution law of pore pressure,pore water velocity and contaminant concentration in unsaturated zone has been presented under the conditions of with coupling and without coupling gas phase. An example problem was used to provide a quantitative verification and validation of the model. The asymptotical solution was compared with Faust model solution. The comparison results show reasonable agreement between asymptotical solution and Faust solution, and the gas effect and media deformation has a large impact on the contaminant transport. The theoretical basis is provided for forecasting contaminant transport and the determination of the relationship among pressure-saturation-permeability in laboratory.

2001-04-01
Full Text Available This paper is concerned with porous medium equation with periodic absorption. We are interested in the discussion of asymptotic behaviour of solutions of the first boundary value problem for the equation. In contrast to the equation without sources, we show that the solutions may not decay but may be Ã‚Â“attractedÃ‚Â” into any small neighborhood of the set of all nontrivial periodic solutions, as time tends to infinity. As a direct consequence, the null periodic solution is Ã‚Â“unstable.Ã‚Â” We have presented an accurate condition on the sources for solutions to have such a property. Whereas in other cases of the sources, the solutions might decay with power speed, which implies that the null periodic solution is Ã‚Â“stable.Ã‚Â”
Quasi-Periodic Solutions and Asymptotic Properties for the Isospectral BKP Equation
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this paper, based on a Riemann theta function and Hirota's bilinear form, a straightforward way is presented to explicitly construct Riemann theta functions periodic waves solutions of the isospectral BKP equation. Once the bilinear form of an equation obtained, its periodic wave solutions can be directly obtained by means of an unified theta function formula and the way of obtaining the bilinear form is given in this paper. Based on this, the Riemann theta function periodic wave solutions and soliton solutions are presented. The relations between the periodic wave solutions and soliton solutions are strictly established and asymptotic behaviors of the Riemann theta function periodic waves are analyzed by a limiting procedure. The N-soliton solutions of isospectral BKP equation are presented with its detailed proof. (general)

The global asymptotic nonlinear behavior of 1 1 explicit and implicit time discretizations for four 2 x 2 systems of first-order autonomous nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODES) is analyzed. The objectives are to gain a basic understanding of the difference in the dynamics of numerics between the scalars and systems of nonlinear autonomous ODEs and to set a baseline global asymptotic solution behavior of these schemes for practical computations in computational fluid dynamics. We show how 'numerical' basins of attraction can complement the bifurcation diagrams in gaining more detailed global asymptotic behavior of time discretizations for nonlinear differential equations (DEs). We show how in the presence of spurious asymptotes the basins of the true stable steady states can be segmented by the basins of the spurious stable and unstable asymptotes. One major consequence of this phenomenon which is not commonly known is that this spurious behavior can result in a dramatic distortion and, in most cases, a dramatic shrinkage and segmentation of the basin of attraction of the true solution for finite time steps. Such distortion, shrinkage and segmentation of the numerical basins of attraction will occur regardless of the stability of the spurious asymptotes, and will occur for unconditionally stable implicit linear multistep methods. In other words, for the same (common) steady-state solution the associated basin of attraction of the DE might be very different from the discretized counterparts and the numerical basin of attraction can be very different from numerical method to numerical method. The results can be used as an explanation for possible causes of error, and slow convergence and nonconvergence of steady-state numerical solutions when using the time-dependent approach for nonlinear hyperbolic or parabolic PDES.

We consider a two-dimensional model Schroedinger equation with logarithmic integral non-linearity. We find asymptotic expansions for its solutions (Airy polarons) that decay exponentially at the 'semi-infinity' and oscillate along one direction. These solutions may be regarded as new special functions, which are somewhat similar to the Airy function. We use them to construct global asymptotic solutions of Schroedinger equations with a small parameter and with integral non-linearity of Hartree type

An invariant asymptotic formula for solutions of second-order linear ODE's
Gingold, H.
1988-01-01
An invariant-matrix technique for the approximate solution of second-order ordinary differential equations (ODEs) of form y-double-prime = phi(x)y is developed analytically and demonstrated. A set of linear transformations for the companion matrix differential system is proposed; the diagonalization procedure employed in the final stage of the asymptotic decomposition is explained; and a scalar formulation of solutions for the ODEs is obtained. Several typical ODEs are analyzed, and it is shown that the Liouville-Green or WKB approximation is a special case of the present formula, which provides an approximation which is valid for the entire interval (0, infinity).

This paper concerns the asymptotic behaviors of the solutions to the initial-boundary value problem for scalar viscous conservations laws ut + f(u)x = uxx on [0, 1], with the boundary condition u(0, t) =u_,u(1,t) = u+ and the initial data u(x, 0) = u0(x), where u_ ≠ u+ and f is a given function satisfying f″ (u) ＞ 0 for u under consideration. By means of energy estimates method and under some more regular conditions on the initial data, both the global existence and the asymptotic behavior are obtained. When u_ ＜ u+, which corresponds to rarefaction waves in inviscid conservation laws, no smallness conditions are needed. While for u_ ＞ u+, which corresponds to shock waves in inviscid conservation laws, it is established for weak shock waves, which means that |u_ - u+| is small. Moreover, exponential decay rates are both given.

In this paper, the (2+1)-dimensional Saweda-Kotera-Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (SK-KP) equation is investigated, which can be used to describe certain situations from the fluid mechanics, ocean dynamics and plasma physics. With the aid of generalized Bell's polynomials, the Hirota's bilinear equation and N-soliton solution are explicitly constructed to the SK-KP equation, respectively. Based on the Riemann theta function, a direct and lucid way is presented to explicitly construct quasi-periodic wave solutions for the SK-KP equation. The two-periodic waves admit two independent spatial periods in two independent horizontal directions, which are a direct generalization of one-periodic waves. Finally, the relationships between soliton solutions and periodic wave solutions are strictly established, which implies the asymptotic behaviors of the periodic waves under a limited procedure.

We prove the asymptotic stability of two-state nonplanar Riemann solutions for a class of multidimensional hyperbolic systems of conservation laws when the initial data are perturbed and viscosity is added. The class considered here is those systems whose flux functions in different directions share a common complete system of Riemann invariants, the level surfaces of which are hyperplanes. In particular, we obtain the uniqueness of the self-similar L ∞ entropy solution of the two-state nonplanar Riemann problem. The asymptotic stability to which the main result refers is in the sense of the convergence as t→∞ in L loc 1 of the space of directions ξ = x/t. That is, the solution u(t, x) of the perturbed problem satisfies u(t, t ξ)→R(ξ) as t→∞, in L loc 1(ℝ n ), where R(ξ) is the self-similar entropy solution of the corresponding two-state nonplanar Riemann problem.

In this article, two reliable techniques, Haar wavelet method and optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) are presented. Haar wavelet method is an efficient numerical method for the numerical solution of fractional order partial differential equation like Fisher type. The approximate solutions of the fractional Fisher type equation are compared with the optimal homotopy asymptotic method as well as with the exact solutions. Comparisons between the obtained solutions with the exact solutions exhibit that both the featured methods are effective and efficient in solving nonlinear problems. However, the results indicate that OHAM provides more accurate value than Haar wavelet method

Full Text Available This work investigates transient heat conduction in a functionally graded plate (FGM plate subjected to gradual cooling/heating at its boundaries. The thermal properties of the FGM are assumed to be continuous and piecewise differentiable functions of the coordinate in the plate thickness direction. A linear ramp function describes the cooling/heating rates at the plate boundaries. A multi-layered material model and Laplace transform are employed to obtain the transformed temperatures at the interfaces between the layers. An asymptotic analysis and an integration technique are then used to obtain a closed form asymptotic solution of the temperature field in the FGM plate for short times. The thermal stress intensity factor (TSIF for an edge crack in the FGM plate calculated based on the asymptotic temperature solution shows that the asymptotic solution can capture the peak TSIFs under the finite cooling rate conditions.

An Asymptotic Theory for the Re-Equilibration of a Micellar Surfactant Solution
Griffiths, I. M.
2012-01-01
Micellar surfactant solutions are characterized by a distribution of aggregates made up predominantly of premicellar aggregates (monomers, dimers, trimers, etc.) and a region of proper micelles close to the peak aggregation number, connected by an intermediate region containing a very low concentration of aggregates. Such a distribution gives rise to a distinct two-timescale reequilibration following a system dilution, known as the t1 and t2 processes, whose dynamics may be described by the Becker-Döring equations. We use a continuum version of these equations to develop a reduced asymptotic description that elucidates the behavior during each of these processes.© 2012 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Under natural spectral stability assumptions motivated by previous investigations of the associated spectral stability problem, we determine sharp L p estimates on the linearized solution operator about a multidimensional planar periodic wave of a system of conservation laws with viscosity, yielding linearized L 1 ∩ L p → L p stability for all {p ≥q 2} and dimensions {d ≥q 1} and nonlinear L 1 ∩ H s → L p ∩ H s stability and L 2-asymptotic behavior for {p≥q 2} and {d≥q 3} . The behavior can in general be rather complicated, involving both convective (that is, wave-like) and diffusive effects.

We study light transport in optically thick luminescent random media. Using radiative transport theory for luminescent media and applying asymptotic and computational methods, a corrected diffusion approximation is derived with the associated boundary conditions and boundary layer solution. The accuracy of this approach is verified for a plane-parallel slab problem. In particular, the reduced system models accurately the effect of reabsorption. The impacts of varying the Stokes shift and using experimentally measured luminescence data are explored in detail. The results of this study have application to the design of luminescent solar concentrators, fluorescence medical imaging, and optical cooling using anti-Stokes fluorescence

We study the asymptotic behaviour of sharp front solutions arising from the nonlinear diffusion equation \\theta_t = (D(\\theta)\\theta_x)_x, where the diffusivity is an exponential function D({\\theta}) = D_o exp(\\beta\\theta). This problem arises in the study of unsaturated flow in porous media where {\\theta} represents the liquid saturation. For the physical parameters corresponding to actual porous media, the diffusivity at the residual saturation is D(0) = D_o << 1 so that the diffusion problem is nearly degenerate. Such problems are characterised by wetting fronts that sharply delineate regions of saturated and unsaturated flow, and that propagate with a well-defined speed. Using matched asymptotic expansions in the limit of large {\\beta}, we derive an analytical description of the solution that is uniformly valid throughout the wetting front. This is in contrast with most other related analyses that instead truncate the solution at some specific wetting front location, which is then calculated as part...
Impedance of strip-traveling waves on an elastic half space - Asymptotic solution
Crandall, S. H.; Nigam, A. K.
1973-01-01
The dynamic normal-load distribution across a strip that is required to maintain a plane progressive wave along its length is studied for the case where the strip is of infinite length and lies on the surface of a homogeneous isotropic elastic half space. This configuration is proposed as a preliminary idealized model for analyzing the dynamic interaction between soils and flexible foundations. The surface load distribution across the strip and the motion of the strip are related by a pair of dual integral equations. An asymptotic solution is obtained for the limiting case of small wavelength. The nature of this solution depends importantly on the propagation velocity of the strip-traveling wave in comparison with the Rayleigh wave speed, the shear wave speed and the dilatational wave speed. When the strip-traveling wave propagates faster than the Rayleigh wave speed, a pattern of trailing Rayleigh waves is shed from the strip. The limiting amplitude of the trailing waves is provided by the asymptotic solution.

Theoretical work based on the Freedericksz transition in a wedge of smectic C liquid crystal is presented. Continuum theory is employed in order to mathematically model the two-way interaction between the anisotropic fluid and an applied electric field. Asymptotic methods are used to obtain concise and informative explicit solutions for limiting regimes where (a) the applied voltage is just above threshold, and (b) a high voltage is applied. As is anticipated, in the case of a small dielectric anisotropy, the solution reduces to that obtained when the two-way interaction is neglected. Nevertheless, at voltages close to threshold, this interaction can have a significant effect upon the director profile. Realistic material, geometry and field parameters are adopted in order to display these solutions. By comparing them with those obtained using a numerical method, a high degree of accuracy can be found within the above regimes
On the asymptotic of solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in domains with edges
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in three-dimensional domains with edges may exhibit singularities. The usual procedure to study these singularities is by the application of the classical Mellin transformation or continuous Fourier transformation. In this paper, we show how the asymptotic behavior of solutions of elliptic boundary value problems in general three-dimensional domains with straight edges can be investigated by means of discrete Fourier transformation. We apply this approach to time-harmonic Maxwell's equations and prove that the singular solutions can fully be described in terms of Fourier series. The representation here can easily be used to approximate three-dimensional stress intensity factors associated with edge singularities. (author)

Asymptotic solutions of glass temperature profiles during steady optical fibre drawing
Taroni, M.
2013-03-12
In this paper we derive realistic simplified models for the high-speed drawing of glass optical fibres via the downdraw method that capture the fluid dynamics and heat transport in the fibre via conduction, convection and radiative heating. We exploit the small aspect ratio of the fibre and the relative orders of magnitude of the dimensionless parameters that characterize the heat transfer to reduce the problem to one- or two-dimensional systems via asymptotic analysis. The resulting equations may be readily solved numerically and in many cases admit exact analytic solutions. The systematic asymptotic breakdown presented is used to elucidate the relative importance of furnace temperature profile, convection, surface radiation and conduction in each portion of the furnace and the role of each in controlling the glass temperature. The models derived predict many of the qualitative features observed in real industrial processes, such as the glass temperature profile within the furnace and the sharp transition in fibre thickness. The models thus offer a desirable route to quick scenario testing, providing valuable practical information about the dependencies of the solution on the parameters and the dominant heat-transport mechanism. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

Following the fractional cable equation established in the letter [B.I. Henry, T.A.M. Langlands, and S.L. Wearne, Phys. Rev. Lett. 100 (2008) 128103], we present the time-space fractional cable equation which describes the anomalous transport of electrodiffusion in nerve cells. The derivation is based on the generalized fractional Ohm's law; and the temporal memory effects and spatial-nonlocality are involved in the time-space fractional model. With the help of integral transform method we derive the analytical solutions expressed by the Green's function; the corresponding fractional moments are calculated; and their asymptotic behaviors are discussed. In addition, the explicit solutions of the considered model with two different external current injections are also presented. (general)
Hybrid resonance and long-time asymptotic of the solution to Maxwell's equations
Després, Bruno
2015-01-01
We study the long-time asymptotic of the solutions to Maxwell's equation in the case of a hybrid resonance in the cold plasma model. We base our analysis in the transfer to the time domain of the recent results of B. Despr\\'es, L.M. Imbert-G\\'erard and R. Weder, J. Math. Pures Appl. {\\bf 101} ( 2014) 623-659, where the singular solutions to Maxwell's equations in the frequency domain where constructed by means of a limiting absorption principle and a formula for the heating of the plasma in the limit of vanishing collision frequency was obtained. Currently there is considerable interest in these problems because hybrid resonances are a possible scenario for the heating of plasmas in the future ITER Tokamak.

2009-01-01
Asymptotic solutions up to third-order which describe irrotational finite amplitude standing waves are derived in Lagrangian coordinates. The analytical Lagrangian solution that is uniformly valid for large times satisfies the irrotational condition and the pressure p = 0 at the free surface, which is in contrast with the Eulerian solution existing under a residual pressure at the free surface due to Taylor's series expansion. In the third-order Lagrangian approximation, the explicit parametric equation and the Lagrangian wave frequency of water particles could be obtained. In particular, the Lagrangian mean level of a particle motion that is a function of vertical label is found as a part of the solution which is different from that in an Eulerian description. The dynamic properties of nonlinear standing waves in water of a finite depth, including particle trajectory, surface profile and wave pressure are investigated. It is also shown that the Lagrangian solution is superior to an Eulerian solution of the same order for describing the wave shape and the kinematics above the mean water level.
On "scattering law" for Kasner parameters appearing in asymptotics of an exact S-brane solution
Ivashchuk, V D
2007-01-01
Multidimensional cosmological model with scalar and form fields [1,2,3,4] is studied. An exact S-brane solution (either electric or magnetic one) in a model with l scalar fields and one antisymmetric form of rank m > 1 is considered. This solution is defined on a product manifold containing n Ricci-flat factor spaces M_1, ..., M_n. In the case when the kinetic term for scalar fields is positive definite we singled out a special solution governed by cosh-function. It is shown that this special solution has Kasner-like asymptotics in the limits \\tau \\to + 0 and \\tau \\to + \\infty, where \\tau is a synchronous time variable. A relation between two sets of Kasner parameters \\alpha_{\\infty} and \\alpha_0 is found. This relation, named as ``scattering law'' (SL) formula, is coinciding with the ``collision law'' (CL) formula obtained previously in Ref. [5] in a context of a billiard description of S-brane solutions near the singularity. A geometrical sense of SL formula is clarified: it is shown that SL transformation ...

Asymptotic solution for a class of sea-air oscillator model for El Nino-southern oscillation
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is an interannual phenomenon involved in the tropical Pacific Ocean-atmosphere interactions. In this paper, an asymptotic method of solving the nonlinear equation for the ENSO model is used. And based on a class of oscillator of ENSO model, the approximate solution of a corresponding problem is studied by employing the perturbation method. Firstly, an ENSO model of nonlinear time delay equation of equatorial Pacific is introduced, Secondly, by using the perturbed method, the zeroth and first order asymptotic perturbed solutions are constructed. Finally, from the comparison of the values for a figure, it is seen that the first asymptotic perturbed solution using the perturbation method has a good accuracy. And it is proved from the results that the perturbation method can be used as an analytic operation for the sea surface temperature anomaly in the equatorial Pacific of the atmosphere-ocean oscillation for the ENSO model

Under natural spectral stability assumptions motivated by previous investigations of the associated spectral stability problem, we determine sharp $L^p$ estimates on the linearized solution operator about a multidimensional planar periodic wave of a system of conservation laws with viscosity, yielding linearized $L^1\\cap L^p\\to L^p$ stability for all $p \\ge 2$ and dimensions $d \\ge 1$ and nonlinear $L^1\\cap H^s\\to L^p\\cap H^s$ stability and $L^2$-asymptotic behavior for $p\\ge 2$ and $d\\ge 3$. The behavior can in general be rather complicated, involving both convective (i.e., wave-like) and diffusive effects.
Asymptotic profiles for a travelling front solution of a biological equation
Chapuisat, Guillemette
2010-01-01
We are interested in the existence of depolarization waves in the human brain. These waves propagate in the grey matter and are absorbed in the white matter. We consider a two-dimensional model $u_t=\\Delta u + f(u) \\1_{|y|\\leq R} - \\alpha u \\1_{|y|>R}$, with $f$ a bistable nonlinearity taking effect only on the domain $\\Rm\\times [-R,R]$, which represents the grey matter layer. We study the existence, the stability and the energy of non-trivial asymptotic profiles of possible travelling fronts. For this purpose, we present dynamical systems technics and graphic criteria based on Sturm-Liouville theory and apply them to the above equation. This yields three different behaviours of the solution $u$ after stimulation, depending of the thickness $R$ of the grey matter. This may partly explain the difficulties to observe depolarization waves in the human brain and the failure of several therapeutic trials.
Elliptic boundary value problems on corner domains smoothness and asymptotics of solutions
Dauge, Monique
1988-01-01
This research monograph focusses on a large class of variational elliptic problems with mixed boundary conditions on domains with various corner singularities, edges, polyhedral vertices, cracks, slits. In a natural functional framework (ordinary Sobolev Hilbert spaces) Fredholm and semi-Fredholm properties of induced operators are completely characterized. By specially choosing the classes of operators and domains and the functional spaces used, precise and general results may be obtained on the smoothness and asymptotics of solutions. A new type of characteristic condition is introduced which involves the spectrum of associated operator pencils and some ideals of polynomials satisfying some boundary conditions on cones. The methods involve many perturbation arguments and a new use of Mellin transform. Basic knowledge about BVP on smooth domains in Sobolev spaces is the main prerequisite to the understanding of this book. Readers interested in the general theory of corner domains will find here a new basic t...

An asymptotic expansion of the solution is constructed: it contains some Poiseuille type flows in the channels (rectangles) with some boundary layers correctors in the neighborhoods of the bifurcations of the channels.

Employing a new class of string theories we construct a family of S -matrix amplitudes that factorize over linear Regge trajectories, and that are good candidates to be asymptotically free, i.e. to lead to asymptotically-free correlation functions working out the LS Z formulae the other way around. In particular, we propose a candidate for a string solution of QCD with NF massless quarks in the large-N 't Hooft limit, for the glueball and meson spectrum, and for certain S-matrix amplitudes in the collinear limit. The solution extends to massive quarks of equal mass.

In classical kinetic models a particle free path distribution is exponential, but this is more likely to be an exception than a rule. In this paper we derive a generalized linear Boltzmann equation (GLBE) for a general free path distribution in the framework of Alt's model. In the case that the free path distribution has at least first and second finite moments we construct an asymptotic solution to the initial value problem for the GLBE for small mean free paths. In the special case of the one-speed transport problem the asymptotic solution results in a diffusion approximation to the GLBE.
Asymptotics of self-similar solutions to coagulation equations with product kernel
McLeod, J B; Velázquez, J J L
2011-01-01
We consider mass-conserving self-similar solutions for Smoluchowski's coagulation equation with kernel $K(\\xi,\\eta)= (\\xi \\eta)^{\\lambda}$ with $\\lambda \\in (0,1/2)$. It is known that such self-similar solutions $g(x)$ satisfy that $x^{-1+2\\lambda} g(x)$ is bounded above and below as $x \\to 0$. In this paper we describe in detail via formal asymptotics the qualitative behavior of a suitably rescaled function $h(x)=h_{\\lambda} x^{-1+2\\lambda} g(x)$ in the limit $\\lambda \\to 0$. It turns out that $h \\sim 1+ C x^{\\lambda/2} \\cos(\\sqrt{\\lambda} \\log x)$ as $x \\to 0$. As $x$ becomes larger $h$ develops peaks of height $1/\\lambda$ that are separated by large regions where $h$ is small. Finally, $h$ converges to zero exponentially fast as $x \\to \\infty$. Our analysis is based on different approximations of a nonlocal operator, that reduces the original equation in certain regimes to a system of ODE.

In this paper, we propose two methods to carry out the quasi-steady state approximation in stochastic models of enzyme catalytic regulation, based on WKB asymptotics of the chemical master equation or of the corresponding partial differential equation for the generating function. The first of the methods we propose involves the development of multiscale generalisation of a WKB approximation of the solution of the master equation, where the separation of time scales is made explicit which allows us to apply the quasi-steady state approximation in a straightforward manner. To the lowest order, the multi-scale WKB method provides a quasi-steady state, Gaussian approximation of the probability distribution. The second method is based on the Hamilton-Jacobi representation of the stochastic process where, as predicted by large deviation theory, the solution of the partial differential equation for the corresponding characteristic function is given in terms of an effective action functional. The optimal transition paths between two states are then given by those paths that maximise the effective action. Such paths are the solutions of the Hamilton equations for the Hamiltonian associated to the effective action functional. The quasi-steady state approximation is applied to the Hamilton equations thus providing an approximation to the optimal transition paths and the transition time between two states. Using this approximation we predict that, unlike the mean-field quasi-steady approximation result, the rate of enzyme catalysis depends explicitly on the initial number of enzyme molecules. The accuracy and validity of our approximated results as well as that of our predictions regarding the behaviour of the stochastic enzyme catalytic models are verified by direct simulation of the stochastic model using Gillespie stochastic simulation algorithm.

Asymptotics of solutions to Schroedinger equations with singular magnetic and electric potentials is investigated. By using a Almgren type monotonicity formula, separation of variables, and an iterative Brezis-Kato type procedure, we describe the exact behavior near the singularity of solutions to linear and semilinear (critical and subcritical) elliptic equations with an inverse square electric potential and a singular magnetic potential with a homogeneity of order -1.

We find a new supersymmetric 5D solution of N= 2 supergravity coupled to one hypermultiplet that depends only on the fifth dimension (the energy scale in a holographic context). In one asymptotic limit the domain wall approaches to the AdS{sub 5} form but in the other one it does not. Similarly, the hyperscalars, which are all proportional between them, go asymptotically to a critical point of the potential only in one direction. The quaternionic Kaehler manifold of the model is the H{sup 4} hyperboloid. We use the standard metric of H{sup 4} in an explicit conformally flat form with several arbitrary parameters. We argue that the holographic dual of the domain wall is a RG flow of a D = 4, N= 1 gauge theory acquiring a conformal supersymmetry at the IR limit, which corresponds to the AdS{sub 5} asymptotic limit.
Pressurized Poroelastic Inclusions: Short-term and Long-term Asymptotic Solutions
Bedayat, Houman; Dahi Taleghani, Arash
2015-11-01
This paper provides semi-analytical, asymptotic short-term and long-term solutions for the volume change and corresponding leak-off volume of a fluid-saturated, three-dimensional poroelastic inclusion, considering fluid exchange with the surrounding poroelastic medium. Considering possibly different material properties and different fluid pressure of hydrocarbon-bearing formations or proppant-filled fractures in comparison to those of the surrounding geological structures, fractures or whole reservoirs can be regarded as inclusions. The problem-solving approach used in our study is inspired by the theory of inclusions and modal decomposition technique previously developed and used to solve several poroelasticity problems. Previous studies on the topic, however, have not incorporated the hydraulic communication between the inclusion and the surrounding medium; therefore, fluid pressure changes in the surrounding rock due to fluid pressure changes in the inclusion were ignored. An example of this problem would be a pressurized stationary fracture, which, depending on pressure, might have fluid exchange with the surroundings. Numerical examples considering inclusions with different aspect ratios and material properties are provided to better describe the significance of fluid exchange.

Full Text Available The authors present an efficient algorithm different from the previously known to construct the asymptotics of solutions of nonautonomous systems of ordinary differential equations with meromorphic matrix. Schrödinger equation, Dirac system, Lippman-Schwinger equation and other equations of quantum mechanics with spherically symmetric and meromorphic potentials may be reduced to such systems. The Schrödinger equation and the Dirac system describe the stationary states of an electron in a Coulomb field with a fixed point charge in the description of the relativistic and nonrelativistic hydrogen atom. The Lippman-Schwinger equation of scattering theory describes the results of collision and interaction of quantum-mechanical particles in mathematical language after these particles have already diverged a long way from one another and ceased to interact. The observed algorithm supplements the known results and allows you to approach the analysis of the problems of this type with a fairly simple and at the same time, a universal point of view.

In this article we further develop the solution theory for the Einstein constraint equations on an n-dimensional, asymptotically Euclidean manifold M with interior boundary S. Building on recent results for both the asymptotically Euclidean and compact with boundary settings, we show existence of far-from-CMC and near-CMC solutions to the conformal formulation of the Einstein constraints when nonlinear Robin boundary conditions are imposed on S, similar to those analyzed previously by Dain (2004), by Maxwell (2004, 2005), and by Holst and Tsogtgerel (2013) as a model of black holes in various CMC settings, and by Holst, Meier, and Tsogtgerel (2013) in the setting of far-from-CMC solutions on compact manifolds with boundary. These "marginally trapped surface" Robin conditions ensure that the expansion scalars along null geodesics perpendicular to the boundary region S are non-positive, which is considered the correct mathematical model for black holes in the context of the Einstein constraint equations.

The dynamics of internal waves in stratified media, such as the ocean or atmosphere, is highly dependent on the topography of their floor. A closed-form analytical solution can be derived only in cases when the water distribution density and the shape of the floor are modeled with specific functions. In a general case when the characteristics of stratified media and the boundary conditions are arbitrary, the dynamics of internal waves can be only approximated with numerical methods. However, numerical solutions do not describe the wave field qualitatively. At the same time, the need for a qualitative analysis of the far field of internal waves arises in studies applying remote sensing methods in space-based radar applications. In this case, the dynamics of internal waves can be described using asymptotic models. In this paper, we derive asymptotic solutions to the problem of characterizing the far field of internal gravity waves propagating in a stratified medium with a smoothly varying floor.

It is well known that confinings and asymptotic freedom are properties of quantum chromo-dynamics (QCD). But hints of these features can also be observed at purely classic levels. For this purpose we need to find solutions to the colorly-sourceful Yang—Mills equations with both confining and asymptotic freedom features. We provide such a solution in this paper which at the near-source region is of serial form, while at the far-away region is approximately expressed through simple elementary functions. From the solution, we derive out a classically non-perturbative beta function describing the running of effective coupling constant, which is linear in the couplings both in the infrared and ultraviolet region.

Asymptotic Solution of a Model for Bilayer Organic Diodes and Solar Cells
Richardson, Giles
2012-11-15
Organic diodes and solar cells are constructed by placing together two organic semiconducting materials with dissimilar electron affinities and ionization potentials. The electrical behavior of such devices has been successfully modeled numerically using conventional drift diffusion together with recombination (which is usually assumed to be bimolecular) and thermal generation. Here a particular model is considered and the dark current-voltage curve and the spatial structure of the solution across the device is extracted analytically using asymptotic methods. We concentrate on the case of Shockley-Read-Hall recombination but note the extension to other recombination mechanisms. We find that there are three regimes of behavior, dependent on the total current. For small currents-i.e., at reverse bias or moderate forward bias-the structure of the solution is independent of the total current. For large currents-i.e., at strong forward bias-the current varies linearly with the voltage and is primarily controlled by drift of charges in the organic layers. There is then a narrow range of currents where the behavior undergoes a transition between the two regimes. The magnitude of the parameter that quantifies the interfacial recombination rate is critical in determining where the transition occurs. The extension of the theory to organic solar cells generating current under illumination is discussed as is the analogous current-voltage curves derived where the photo current is small. Finally, by comparing the analytic results to real experimental data, we show how the model parameters can be extracted from the shape of current-voltage curves measured in the dark. © 2012 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

Percolation induced effects in two-dimensional coined quantum walks: analytic asymptotic solutions
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Quantum walks on graphs can model physical processes and serve as efficient tools in quantum information theory. Once we admit random variations in the connectivity of the underlying graph, we arrive at the problem of percolation, where the long-time behaviour appears untreatable with direct numerical methods. We develop novel analytic methods based on the theory of random unitary operations which help us to determine explicitly the asymptotic dynamics of quantum walks on two-dimensional finite integer lattices with percolation. Based on this theory, we find new unexpected features of percolated walks like asymptotic position inhomogeneity or special directional symmetry breaking. (paper)

We propose a general method for solving exactly the static field equations of Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell gravity minimally coupled to a scalar field. Our method starts from an ansatz for the scalar field profile, and determines, together with the metric functions, the corresponding form of the scalar self-interaction potential. Using this method we prove a new no-hair theorem about the existence of hairy black-hole and black-brane solutions and derive broad classes of static solutions with radial symmetry of the theory, which may play an important role in applications of the AdS/CFT correspondence to condensed matter and strongly coupled QFTs. These solutions include: (1) four- or generic (d+2)-dimensional solutions with planar, spherical or hyperbolic horizon topology; (2) solutions with anti-de Sitter, domain wall and Lifshitz asymptotics; (3) solutions interpolating between an anti-de Sitter spacetime in the asymptotic region and a domain wall or conformal Lifshitz spacetime in the near-horizon region.

Under investigation in this paper is a fifth-order Korteweg-de Vries type (fKdV-type) equation with time-dependent coefficients, which can be used to describe many nonlinear phenomena in fluid mechanics, ocean dynamics and plasma physics. The binary Bell polynomials are employed to find its Hirota’s bilinear formalism with an extra auxiliary variable, based on which its N-soliton solutions can be also directly derived. Furthermore, by considering multi-dimensional Riemann theta function, a lucid and straightforward generalization of the Hirota-Riemann method is presented to explicitly construct the multiperiodic wave solutions of the equation. Finally, the asymptotic properties of these periodic wave solutions are strictly analyzed to reveal the relationships between periodic wave solutions and soliton solutions.

A special case of coupled integrable nonlinear equations with a singular dispersion law is derived in the context of the small amplitude limit of general wave equations in a fluid-type warm electrons/cold ions plasma irradiated by a continuous laser beam. This model accounts for a nonlinear mode coupling of the electrostatic wave with the ion sound wave and is shown to be highly unstable. Its instability is understood as a continuous secular transfer of energy from the electrostatic wave to the ion sound wave through the ponderomotive force. The exact asymptotic solution of the system is constructed and shows that the dynamics of the energy transfer results in a singular asymptotic behavior of the ion sound wave, which explains the low penetration of the incident laser beam.
Rigorous asymptotics of traveling-wave solutions to the thin-film equation and Tanner’s law
Giacomelli, Lorenzo; Gnann, Manuel V.; Otto, Felix
2016-09-01
We are interested in traveling-wave solutions to the thin-film equation with zero microscopic contact angle (in the sense of complete wetting without precursor) and inhomogeneous mobility {{h}3}+{λ3-n}{{h}n} , where h, λ, and n\\in ≤ft(\\frac{3}{2},\\frac{7}{3}\\right) denote film height, slip parameter, and mobility exponent, respectively. Existence and uniqueness of these solutions have been established by Maria Chiricotto and the first of the authors in previous work under the assumption of sub-quadratic growth as h\\to ∞ . In the present work we investigate the asymptotics of solutions as h\\searrow 0 (the contact-line region) and h\\to ∞ . As h\\searrow 0 we observe, to leading order, the same asymptotics as for traveling waves or source-type self-similar solutions to the thin-film equation with homogeneous mobility h n and we additionally characterize corrections to this law. Moreover, as h\\to ∞ we identify, to leading order, the logarithmic Tanner profile, i.e. the solution to the corresponding unperturbed problem with λ =0 that determines the apparent macroscopic contact angle. Besides higher-order terms, corrections turn out to affect the asymptotic law as h\\to ∞ only by setting the length scale in the logarithmic Tanner profile. Moreover, we prove that both the correction and the length scale depend smoothly on n. Hence, in line with the common philosophy, the precise modeling of liquid–solid interactions (within our model, the mobility exponent) does not affect the qualitative macroscopic properties of the film.

We study exact solutions to Cosmological Topologically Massive Gravity (CTMG) coupled to Topologically Massive Electrodynamics (TME) at special values of the coupling constants. For the particular case of the so called chiral point l\\mu_G=1, vacuum solutions (with vanishing gauge field) are exhibited. These correspond to a one-parameter deformation of GR solutions, and are continuously connected to the extremal Banados-Teitelboim-Zanelli black hole (BTZ) with bare constants J=-lM. In CTMG this extremal BTZ turns out to be massless, and thus it can be regarded as a kind of ground state. For certain range of parameters, our solution exhibits an event horizon located at finite geodesic distance. Although the solution is not asymptotically AdS_3 in the sense of Brown-Henneaux boundary conditions, it does obey the weakened asymptotic recently proposed by Grumiller and Johansson. Consequently, we discuss the computation of the conserved chages in terms of the stress-tensor in the boundary, and we find that the sign...

The BPS equations in M-theory for solutions with 16 residual supersymmetries, $SO(2,2)\\times SO(4)\\times SO(4)$ symmetry, and $AdS_4 \\times S^7$ asymptotics, were reduced in [arXiv:0806.0605] to a linear first order partial differential equation on a Riemann surface with boundary, subject to a non-trivial quadratic constraint. In the present paper, suitable regularity and boundary conditions are imposed for the existence of global solutions. We seek regular solutions with multiple distinct asymptotic $AdS_4 \\times S^7$ regions, but find that, remarkably, such solutions invariably reduce to multiple covers of the M-Janus solution found by the authors in [arXiv:0904.3313], suggesting rigidity of the half-BPS M-Janus solution. In particular, we prove analytically that no other smooth deformations away from the M-Janus solution exist, as such deformations invariably violate the quadratic constraint. These rigidity results are contrasted to the existence of half-BPS solutions with non-trivial 4-form fluxes and cha...

A polymer network can imbibe water, forming an aggregate called hydrogel, and undergo large and inhomogeneous deformation with external mechanical constraint. Due to the large deformation, nonlinearity plays a crucial role, which also causes the mathematical difficulty for obtaining analytical solutions. Based on an existing model for equilibrium states of a swollen hydrogel with a core-shell structure, this paper seeks analytical solutions of the deformations by perturbation methods for three cases, i.e. free-swelling, nearly free-swelling and general inhomogeneous swelling. Particularly for the general inhomogeneous swelling, we introduce an extended method of matched asymptotics to construct the analytical solution of the governing nonlinear second-order variable-coefficient differential equation. The analytical solution captures the boundary layer behavior of the deformation. Also, analytical formulas for the radial and hoop stretches and stresses are obtained at the two boundary surfaces of the shell, ma...

The Dirac equation for Eckart potential and trigonometric Manning Rosen potential with exact spin symmetry is obtained using an asymptotic iteration method. The combination of the two potentials is substituted into the Dirac equation, then the variables are separated into radial and angular parts. The Dirac equation is solved by using an asymptotic iteration method that can reduce the second order differential equation into a differential equation with substitution variables of hypergeometry type. The relativistic energy is calculated using Matlab 2011. This study is limited to the case of spin symmetry. With the asymptotic iteration method, the energy spectra of the relativistic equations and equations of orbital quantum number l can be obtained, where both are interrelated between quantum numbers. The energy spectrum is also numerically solved using the Matlab software, where the increase in the radial quantum number nr causes the energy to decrease. The radial part and the angular part of the wave function are defined as hypergeometry functions and visualized with Matlab 2011. The results show that the disturbance of a combination of the Eckart potential and trigonometric Manning Rosen potential can change the radial part and the angular part of the wave function.

This paper is concerned with a class of semilinear hyperbolic systems in odd space dimensions. Our main aim is to prove the existence of a small amplitude solution which is asymptotic to the free solution as t → -∞ in the energy norm, and to show it has a free profile as t → +∞. Our approach is based on the work of [11]. Namely we use a weighted L∞ norm to get suitable a priori estimates. This can be done by restricting our attention to radially symmetric solutions. Corresponding initial value problem is also considered in an analogous framework. Besides, we give an extended result of [14] for three space dimensional case in Section 5, which is prepared independently of the other parts of the paper.
Asymptotic solution of the low Reynolds-number flow between two co-axial cones of common apex

Full Text Available The paper is concerned with the axi-symmetrlc, incompressible, steady, laminar and Newtonian flow between two, stationary, conical-boundaries, which exhibit a common apex but may include arbitrary angles. The flow pattern and pressure field are obtained by solving the pertinent Navier-Stokes' equations in the spherical coordinate system. The solution is presented in the form of an asymptotic series, which converges towards the creeping flow solution as a cross-sectional Reynolds-number tends to zero. The first term in the series, namely the creeping flow solution, is given in closed form; whereas, higher order terms contain functions which generally could only be expressed in infinite series form, or else evaluated numerically. Some of the results obtained for converging and diverging flows are displayed and they are demonstrated to be plausible and informative.

In this paper, an extended Korteweg-de Vries (eKdV) equation is investigated, which can be used to describe many nonlinear phenomena in fluid dynamics and plasma physics. With the aid of the generalized Bell’s polynomials, the Hirota’s bilinear equation to the eKdV equation is succinctly constructed. Based on that, its solition solutions are directly obtained. By virtue of the Riemann theta function, a straightforward way is presented to explicitly construct Riemann theta function periodic wave solutions of the eKdV equation. Finally, the asymptotic behaviors of the Riemann theta function periodic waves are presented, which yields a relationship between the periodic waves and solition solutions by considering a limiting procedure.
Asymptotic Solutions of Detonation Propagation in a 2D Circular Arc.
Short, Mark; Meyer, Chad; Quirk, James
2015-11-01
The large pressure of the product gas generated by detonating high explosives causes lateral motion of the explosive at the material interface between the explosive and its confinement. In turn, this leads to streamline divergence and curvature of the detonation front (typically in a divergent fashion). The propagation of a detonation front in a given geometry depends on the amount of curvature generated. Here we describe an asymptotic analysis of detonation propagation in a 2D circular arc, examining dependencies of the motion on the size of the inner and outer arc radii, and the relation between the detonation velocity and curvature for different types of explosive.

In this paper we consider an oscillatory medium whose dynamics are modeled by the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation. In particular, we focus on n-armed spiral wave solutions of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation in a disk of radius d with homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions. It is well-known that such solutions exist for small enough values of the twist parameter q and large enough values of d. We investigate the effect of boundaries on the rotational frequency of the spirals, which is an unknown of the problem uniquely determined by the parameters d and q. We show that there is a threshold in the parameter space where the effect of the boundary on the rotational frequency switches from being algebraic to exponentially weak. We use the method of matched asymptotic expansions to obtain explicit expressions for the asymptotic wavenumber as a function of the twist parameter and the domain size for small values of q. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

We present a study of planar physical solutions to the Lorentz-Dirac equation in a constant electromagnetic field. In this case, we reduced the Lorentz-Dirac equation to the one second order differential equation. We found the asymptotics of physical solutions to this equation at large proper times. It turns out that, in the crossed constant uniform electromagnetic field with vanishing invariants, a charged particle goes to a universal regime at large times. We found the ratio of momentum components which tends to a constant determined only by the external field. This effect is essentially due to a radiation reaction. There is no such an effect for the Lorentz equation in this field.

The paper analyzes the asymptotic behavior of disperse systems with coagulation and fragmentation of particles. The possible types of self-similarity regimes have been analyzed and conditions required for their existence have been set. The generalized approximation method (GA-method) numerical simulation is used to determine the actual behavior of moments Lα(t). The examples of GA-method application show its suitability for use in research problems. In general, the obtained results show that binary breakage coagulation is a wide and non-trivial scope for investigation. A number of regimes are represented such as steady state, coagulation winning, gelation, collapsing self-similarity and spectrum singularity. The existence of collapsing (accumulating in zero) self-similar spectra is illustrated in terms of a particular example of the coagulation kernel K(g, n) = gn and breakage rate f(g, n) = a. (paper)

In this paper, we study phase transitions in a slender circular cylinder composed of a compressible hyperelastic material with a non-convex strain energy function. We aim to construct the asymptotic solutions based on an axisymmetrical three-dimensional setting and use the results to describe the key features (in particular, instability phenomena) observed in the experiments by others. The difficult problem of the solution bifurcations of the governing nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE's) is solved through a novel approach. By using a methodology involving coupled series-asymptotic expansions, we derive the normal form equation of the original complicated system of nonlinear PDE's. By writing the normal form equation into a first-order dynamical system and with a phase-plane analysis, we manage to deduce the global bifurcation properties and to solve the boundary-value problem analytically. The asymptotic solutions (including post-bifurcation solutions) in terms of integrals are obtained. The engi...

We show that the dissipation is strong enough to produce exponential decay of the solution, provided the relaxation function also decays exponentially. When the relaxation function decays polynomially, we show that the solution decays polynomially and with the same rate.

An asymptotic solution is presented for the singular stress and strain fields near the tip of a steadily growing crack in an elastic-viscoplastic material under Mode III loading. By taking into account the experimental study made by Clark-Duwez in which no further increase of dynamic yield stress was observed when the strain rate exceeded the critical value, an intense strain region which behaves as an elastic-perfectly plastic material is introduced in the vicinity of the crack tip where this region is surrounded by the elastic-viscoplastic material. It is shown that the size of the intense strain region measured along the crack line is proportional to the velocity of the crack growth, and the singularity of the strain distribution near the crack tip is weakened by the intense strain region.

The time-convolutionless mode-coupling theory (TMCT) equation for the intermediate scattering function fα(q , t) derived recently by the present author is analyzed mathematically and numerically, where α = c stands for a collective case and α = s for a self case. All the mathematical formulations discussed by Götze for the MCT equation are then shown to be directly applicable to the TMCT equation. Firstly, it is shown that similarly to MCT, there exists an ergodic to non-ergodic transition at a critical point, above which the long-time solution fα(q , t = ∞) , that is, the so-called Debye-Waller factor fα(q) , reduces to a non-zero value. The critical point is then shown to be definitely different from that of MCT. Secondly, it is also shown that there is a two-step relaxation process in a β stage near the critical point, which is described by the same two different power-law decays as those obtained in MCT. In order to discuss the asymptotic solutions, the TMCT equation is then transformed into a recursion formula for a cumulant function Kα(q , t) (= - ln [fα(q , t) ]) . By employing the same simplified model as that proposed by MCT, the simplified asymptotic recursion formula is then numerically solved for different temperatures under the initial conditions obtained from the simulations. Thus, it is discussed how the TMCT equation can describe the simulation results within the simplified model.

On de Sitter solutions in asymptotically safe $f(R)$ theories
Falls, Kevin; Nikolakopoulos, Kostas; Rahmede, Christoph

The availability of scaling solutions in renormalisation group improved versions of cosmology are investigated in the high-energy limit. We adopt $f(R)$-type models of quantum gravity which display an interacting ultraviolet fixed point at shortest distances. Expanding the gravitational fixed point action to very high order in the curvature scalar, we detect a convergence-limiting singularity in the complex field plane. Resummation techniques including Pad\\'e approximants as well as infinite order approximations of the effective action are used to maximise the domain of validity. We find that the theory displays near de Sitter solutions as well as an anti-de Sitter solution in the UV whereas real de Sitter solutions, for small curvature, appear to be absent. The significance of our results for inflation, and implications for more general models of quantum gravity are discussed.

We discuss a transfer line consisting of a reliable machine, an unreliable machine and a storage buffer. This transfer line can be described by a group of partial differential equations with integral boundary conditions. First we show that the operator corresponding to these equations generates a positive contraction C0-semigroup T(t), and prove that T(t) is a quasi-compact operator. Next we verify that 0 is an eigenvalue of this operator and its adjoint operator with geometric multiplicity one. Last, by using the above results we obtain that the time-dependent solution of these equations converges strongly to their steady-state solution.

We consider a class of asymptotic representations of the Borel subalgebra of the quantum affine superalgebra U{sub q}(gl{sup ^}(M|N)). This is characterized by Drinfeld rational fractions. In particular, we consider contractions of U{sub q}(gl(M|N)) in the FRT formulation and obtain explicit solutions of the graded Yang–Baxter equation in terms of q-oscillator superalgebras. These solutions correspond to L-operators for Baxter Q-operators. We also discuss an extension of these representations to the ones for contracted algebras of U{sub q}(gl{sup ^}(M|N)) by considering the action of renormalized generators of the other side of the Borel subalgebra. We define model independent universal Q-operators as the supertrace of the universal R-matrix and write universal T-operators in terms of these Q-operators based on shift operators on the supercharacters. These include our previous work on U{sub q}(sl{sup ^}(2|1)) case [1] in part, and also give a cue for the operator realization of our Wronskian-like formulas on T- and Q-functions in [2,3].

The problem of a cold gas flowing past a stationary object is considered. It is shown that at large distances from the obstacle the shock front forms a parabolic solid of revolution. The interior of the shock front is obtained by solution of the hydrodynamic equations in parabolic coordinates. The results are verified with a hydrodynamic simulation. The drag force and expected spectra are calculated for such shock, both in case of an optically thin and thick media. Finally, relations to astrophysical bow shocks and other analytic works on oblique shocks are discussed.

Asymptotic properties of solutions of the Maxwell Klein Gordon equation with small data

We prove peeling estimates for the small data solutions of the Maxwell Klein Gordon equations with non-zero charge and with a non-compactly supported scalar field, in $(3+1)$ dimensions. We obtain the same decay rates as in an earlier work by Lindblad and Sterbenz, but giving a simpler proof. In particular we dispense with the fractional Morawetz estimates for the electromagnetic field, as well as certain space-time estimates. In the case that the scalar field is compactly supported we can avoid fractional Morawetz estimates for the scalar field as well. All of our estimates are carried out using the double null foliation and in a gauge invariant manner.

This paper deals with the investigation of the analytical approximate solutions for two-term fractional-order diffusion, wave-diffusion, and telegraph equations. The fractional derivatives are defined in the Caputo sense, whose orders belong to the intervals [0,1], (1,2), and [1,2], respectively. In this paper, we extended optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM) for two-term fractional-order wave-diffusion equations. Highly approximate solution is obtained in series form using this extended method. Approximate solution obtained by OHAM is compared with the exact solution. It is observed that OHAM is a prevailing and convergent method for the solutions of nonlinear-fractional-order time-dependent partial differential problems. The numerical results rendering that the applied method is explicit, effective, and easy to use, for handling more general fractional-order wave diffusion, diffusion, and telegraph problems.

We derive the continuum equations and boundary conditions governing phonon-mediated heat transfer in the limit of a small but finite mean-free path from the asymptotic solution of the linearized Boltzmann equation in the relaxation time approximation. Our approach uses the ratio of the mean-free path to the characteristic system length scale, also known as the Knudsen number, as the expansion parameter to study the effects of boundaries on the breakdown of the Fourier description. We show that, in the bulk, the traditional heat conduction equation using Fourier's law as a constitutive relation is valid at least up to second order in the Knudsen number for steady problems and first order for time-dependent problems. However, this description does not hold within distances on the order of a few mean-free paths from the boundary; this breakdown is a result of kinetic effects that are always present in the boundary vicinity and require solution of a Boltzmann boundary layer problem to be determined. Matching the inner, boundary layer solution to the outer, bulk solution yields boundary conditions for the Fourier description as well as additive corrections in the form of universal kinetic boundary layers; both are found to be proportional to the bulk-solution gradients at the boundary and parametrized by the material model and the phonon-boundary interaction model (Boltzmann boundary condition). Our derivation shows that the traditional no-jump boundary condition for prescribed temperature boundaries and the no-flux boundary condition for diffusely reflecting boundaries are appropriate only to zeroth order in the Knudsen number; at higher order, boundary conditions are of the jump type. We illustrate the utility of the asymptotic solution procedure by demonstrating that it can be used to predict the Kapitza resistance (and temperature jump) associated with an interface between two materials. All results are validated via comparisons with low-variance deviational Monte

Asymptotology is given using an example from aerodynamics, and a rent Phys. Rev. Letter Comment is used as a case study of one subtle way things can go wrong. It is shown that the application of local analysis leads to erroneous conclusions regarding the existence of a continuous spectrum in a simple test problem, showing that a global analysis must be used.

We show that this action is finite on-shell and that the variational principle is well-defined for solutions of vacuum gravity satisfying our asymptotically plane wave falloff condi...
Exponential asymptotic stability for linear volterra equations

This note studies the exponential asymptotic stability of the zero solution of the linear Volterra equation x˙ (t) = Ax(t) + t 0 K(t − s)x(s) ds by extending results in the paper of Murakami “Exponential Asymptotic Stability for scalar linear Volterra Equations”, Differential and Integral Equations, 4, 1991. In particular, when K isi ntegrable and has entries which do not change sign, and the equation has a uniformly asymptotically stable solution, exponential asympto...
Asymptotically hyperbolic connections
Fine, Joel; Krasnov, Kirill; Scarinci, Carlos
2015-01-01
General Relativity in 4 dimensions can be equivalently described as a dynamical theory of SO(3)-connections rather than metrics. We introduce the notion of asymptotically hyperbolic connections, and work out an analog of the Fefferman-Graham expansion in the language of connections. As in the metric setup, one can solve the arising "evolution" equations order by order in the expansion in powers of the radial coordinate. The solution in the connection setting is arguably simpler, and very straightforward algebraic manipulations allow one to see how the obstruction appears at third order in the expansion. Another interesting feature of the connection formulation is that the "counter terms" required in the computation of the renormalised volume all combine into the Chern-Simons functional of the restriction of the connection to the boundary. As the Chern-Simons invariant is only defined modulo large gauge transformations, the requirement that the path integral over asymptotically hyperbolic connections is well-d...

In this paper, we investigate the decay property of a Timoshenko system in thermoelasticity of type III in the whole space where the heat conduction is given by the Green and Naghdi theory. Surprisingly, we show that the coupling of the Timoshenko system with the heat conduction of Green and Naghdi\\'s theory slows down the decay of the solution. In fact we show that the L-2-norm of the solution decays like (1 + t)(-1/8), while in the case of the coupling of the Timoshenko system with the Fourier or Cattaneo heat conduction, the decay rate is of the form (1 + t)(-1/4) [25]. We point out that the decay rate of (1 + t)(-1/8) has been obtained provided that the initial data are in L-1 (R) boolean AND H-s (R); (s >= 2). If the wave speeds of the fi rst two equations are di ff erent, then the decay rate of the solution is of regularity-loss type, that is in this case the previous decay rate can be obtained only under an additional regularity assumption on the initial data. In addition, by restricting the initial data to be in H-s (R) boolean AND L-1,L-gamma (R) with gamma is an element of [0; 1], we can derive faster decay estimates with the decay rate improvement by a factor of t(-gamma/4).

In this study we extend the Spatial Markov model, which has been successfully used to upscale conservative transport across a diverse range of porous media flows, to test if it can accurately upscale reactive transport, defined by a spatially heterogeneous first order degradation rate. We test the model in a well known highly simplified geometry, commonly considered as an idealized pore or fracture structure, a periodic channel with wavy boundaries. The edges of the flow domain have a layer through which there is no flow, but in which diffusion of a solute still occurs. Reactions are confined to this region. We demonstrate that the Spatial Markov model, an upscaled random walk model that enforces correlation between successive jumps, can reproduce breakthrough curves measured from microscale simulations that explicitly resolve all pertinent processes. We also demonstrate that a similar random walk model that does not enforce successive correlations is unable to reproduce all features of the measured breakthrough curves.
Asymptotic freedom, asymptotic flatness and cosmology
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Holographic RG flows in some cases are known to be related to cosmological solutions. In this paper another example of such correspondence is provided. Holographic RG flows giving rise to asymptotically-free β-functions have been analyzed in connection with holographic models of QCD. They are shown upon Wick rotation to provide a large class of inflationary models with logarithmically-soft inflaton potentials. The scalar spectral index is universal and depends only on the number of e-foldings. The ratio of tensor to scalar power depends on the single extra real parameter that defines this class of models. The Starobinsky inflationary model as well as the recently proposed models of T-inflation are members of this class. The holographic setup gives a completely new (and contrasting) view to the stability, naturalness and other problems of such inflationary models

We prove that $u'= A u + \\phi $ has on $\\Bbb{R}$ a mild solution $u_{\\phi}\\in BUC (\\Bbb{R},X)$ (that is bounded and uniformly continuous), where $A$ is the generator of a $C_0$-semigroup on the Banach space ${X}$ with resolvent satisfying $||R(it,A)||= O(|t|^{-\\theta})$, $|t|\\to \\infty $, with some $\\theta > 1/2$, $\\phi\\in L^{\\infty} (\\Bbb{R},{X})$ and $i\\,sp (\\phi)\\cap \\sigma (A)=\\emptyset$.

Asymptotic perturbation theory of waves
Ostrovsky, Lev
2014-01-01
This book is an introduction to the perturbation theory for linear and nonlinear waves in dispersive and dissipative media. The main focus is on the direct asymptotic method which is based on the asymptotic expansion of the solution in series of one or more small parameters and demanding finiteness of the perturbations; this results in slow variation of the main-order solution. The method, which does not depend on integrability of basic equations, is applied to quasi-harmonic and non-harmonic periodic waves, as well as to localized waves such as solitons, kinks, and autowaves. The basic theor
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In this paper, a (3+1)-dimensional generalized Kadomtsev—Petviashvili (GKP) equation is investigated, which can be used to describe many nonlinear phenomena in fluid dynamics and plasma physics. Based on the generalized Bell's polynomials, we succinctly construct the Hirota's bilinear equation to the GKP equation. By virtue of multidimensional Riemann theta functions, a lucid and straightforward way is presented to explicitly construct multiperiodic Riemann theta function periodic waves (quasi-periodic waves) for the (3+1)-dimensional GKP equation. Interestingly, the one-periodic waves are well-known cnoidal waves, which are considered as one-dimensional models of periodic waves. The two-periodic waves are a direct generalization of one-periodic waves, their surface pattern is two-dimensional that they have two independent spatial periods in two independent horizontal directions. Finally, we analyze asymptotic behavior of the multiperiodic periodic waves, and rigorously present the relationships between the periodic waves and soliton solutions by a limiting procedure.

Asymptotically free SU(5) models
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The behaviour of Yukawa and Higgs effective charges of the minimal SU(5) unification model is investigated. The model includes ν=3 (or more, up to ν=7) generations of quarks and leptons and, in addition, the 24-plet of heavy fermions. A number of solutions of the renorm-group equations are found, which reproduce the known data about quarks and leptons and, due to a special choice of the coupling constants at the unification point are asymptotically free in all charges. The requirement of the asymptotical freedom leads to some restrictions on the masses of particles and on their mixing angles
Asymptotic analysis and boundary layers
Cousteix, Jean
2007-01-01
This book presents a new method of asymptotic analysis of boundary-layer problems, the Successive Complementary Expansion Method (SCEM). The first part is devoted to a general comprehensive presentation of the tools of asymptotic analysis. It gives the keys to understand a boundary-layer problem and explains the methods to construct an approximation. The second part is devoted to SCEM and its applications in fluid mechanics, including external and internal flows. The advantages of SCEM are discussed in comparison with the standard Method of Matched Asymptotic Expansions. In particular, for the first time, the theory of Interactive Boundary Layer is fully justified. With its chapter summaries, detailed derivations of results, discussed examples and fully worked out problems and solutions, the book is self-contained. It is written on a mathematical level accessible to graduate and post-graduate students of engineering and physics with a good knowledge in fluid mechanics. Researchers and practitioners will estee...

Asymptotically hyperbolic black holes in Horava gravity
Janiszewski, Stefan

Solutions of Hořava gravity that are asymptotically Lifshitz are explored. General near boundary expansions allow the calculation of the mass of these spacetimes via a Hamiltonian method. Both analytic and numeric solutions are studied which exhibit a causal boundary called the universal horizon, and are therefore black holes of the theory. The thermodynamics of an asymptotically Anti-de Sitter Hořava black hole are verified.

Universal asymptotic umbrella for hydraulic fracture modeling
Linkov, Aleksandr M
2014-01-01
The paper presents universal asymptotic solution needed for efficient modeling of hydraulic fractures. We show that when neglecting the lag, there is universal asymptotic equation for the near-front opening. It appears that apart from the mechanical properties of fluid and rock, the asymptotic opening depends merely on the local speed of fracture propagation. This implies that, on one hand, the global problem is ill-posed, when trying to solve it as a boundary value problem under a fixed position of the front. On the other hand, when properly used, the universal asymptotics drastically facilitates solving hydraulic fracture problems (both analytically and numerically). We derive simple universal asymptotics and comment on their employment for efficient numerical simulation of hydraulic fractures, in particular, by well-established Level Set and Fast Marching Methods.
Asymptotic stability of Riemann waves for conservation laws
Chen, G.-Q.; Frid, H.; Marta
We are concerned with the asymptotic behavior of entropy solutions of conservation laws. A new notion about the asymptotic stability of Riemann solutions is introduced, and corresponding analytical frameworks are developed. The correlation between the asymptotic problem and many important topics in conservation laws and nonlinear analysis is recognized and analyzed, such as zero dissipation limits, uniqueness of entropy solutions, entropy analysis, and divergence-measure fields in L∞ . Then this theory is applied to understanding the asymptotic behavior of entropy solutions for many important systems of conservation laws.

Adopting an elastic-viscoplastic, the asymptotic problem of mode I propagating crack-tip field is investigated. Various asymptotic solutions resulting from the analysis of crack growing programs are presented. The analysis results show that the quasi-statically growing crack solutions are the special case of the dynamic propagating solutions. Therefore these two asymptotic solutions can be unified.

Incorporating substantial developments from the last thirty years into one resource, Asymptotics and Borel Summability provides a self-contained introduction to asymptotic analysis with special emphasis on topics not covered in traditional asymptotics books. The author explains basic ideas, concepts, and methods of generalized Borel summability, transseries, and exponential asymptotics. He provides complete mathematical rigor while supplementing it with heuristic material and examples, so that some proofs may be omitted by applications-oriented readers.To give a sense of how new methods are us

Asymptotic Resource Usage Bounds

When describing the resource usage of a program, it is usual to talk in asymptotic terms, such as the well-known “big O” notation, whereby we focus on the behaviour of the program for large input data and make a rough approximation by considering as equivalent programs whose resource usage grows at the same rate. Motivated by the existence of non-asymptotic resource usage analyzers, in this paper, we develop a novel transformation from a non-asymptotic cost function (which can be produced by ...
Large Deviations and Asymptotic Methods in Finance
Gatheral, Jim; Gulisashvili, Archil; Jacquier, Antoine; Teichmann, Josef
2015-01-01
Topics covered in this volume (large deviations, differential geometry, asymptotic expansions, central limit theorems) give a full picture of the current advances in the application of asymptotic methods in mathematical finance, and thereby provide rigorous solutions to important mathematical and financial issues, such as implied volatility asymptotics, local volatility extrapolation, systemic risk and volatility estimation. This volume gathers together ground-breaking results in this field by some of its leading experts. Over the past decade, asymptotic methods have played an increasingly important role in the study of the behaviour of (financial) models. These methods provide a useful alternative to numerical methods in settings where the latter may lose accuracy (in extremes such as small and large strikes, and small maturities), and lead to a clearer understanding of the behaviour of models, and of the influence of parameters on this behaviour. Graduate students, researchers and practitioners will find th...
Nonstandard asymptotic analysis
Berg, Imme
1987-01-01
This research monograph considers the subject of asymptotics from a nonstandard view point. It is intended both for classical asymptoticists - they will discover a new approach to problems very familiar to them - and for nonstandard analysts but includes topics of general interest, like the remarkable behaviour of Taylor polynomials of elementary functions. Noting that within nonstandard analysis, "small", "large", and "domain of validity of asymptotic behaviour" have a precise meaning, a nonstandard alternative to classical asymptotics is developed. Special emphasis is given to applications in numerical approximation by convergent and divergent expansions: in the latter case a clear asymptotic answer is given to the problem of optimal approximation, which is valid for a large class of functions including many special functions. The author's approach is didactical. The book opens with a large introductory chapter which can be read without much knowledge of nonstandard analysis. Here the main features of the t...

We show that known entropy bounds constrain the information carried off by radiation to null infinity. We consider distant, planar null hypersurfaces in asymptotically flat spacetime. Their focussing and area loss can be computed perturbatively on a Minkowski background, yielding entropy bounds in terms of the energy flux of the outgoing radiation. In the asymptotic limit, we obtain boundary versions of the Quantum Null Energy Condition, of the Generalized Second Law, and of the Quantum Bousso Bound.
Asymptotically Safe Dark Matter
Sannino, Francesco
2014-01-01
We introduce a new paradigm for dark matter interactions according to which the interaction strength is asymptotically safe. In models of this type, the interaction strength is small at low energies but increases at higher energies towards a finite constant value of the coupling. The net effect is to partially offset direct detection constraints without affecting thermal freeze-out at higher energies. High-energy collider and indirect annihilation searches are the primary ways to constrain or discover asymptotically safe dark matter.

Puschnigg, Michael
1996-01-01
The aim of cyclic cohomology theories is the approximation of K-theory by cohomology theories defined by natural chain complexes. The basic example is the approximation of topological K-theory by de Rham cohomology via the classical Chern character. A cyclic cohomology theory for operator algebras is developed in the book, based on Connes' work on noncommutative geometry. Asymptotic cyclic cohomology faithfully reflects the basic properties and features of operator K-theory. It thus becomes a natural target for a Chern character. The central result of the book is a general Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem in noncommutative geometry with values in asymptotic cyclic homology. Besides this, the book contains numerous examples and calculations of asymptotic cyclic cohomology groups.

Many branches of science and engineering involve applications of mathematical analysis. An important part of applied analysis is asymptotic approximation which is, therefore, an active area of research with new methods and publications being found constantly. This book gives an introduction to the subject sufficient for scientists and engineers to grasp the fundamental techniques, both those which have been known for some time and those which have been discovered more recently. The asymptotic approximation of both integrals and differential equations is discussed and the discussion includes hy
Asymptotics for spherical needlets
Baldi, P.; Kerkyacharian, G.; Marinucci, D.; Picard, D.
We investigate invariant random fields on the sphere using a new type of spherical wavelets, called needlets. These are compactly supported in frequency and enjoy excellent localization properties in real space, with quasi-exponentially decaying tails. We show that, for random fields on the sphere, the needlet coefficients are asymptotically uncorrelated for any fixed angular distance. This property is used to derive CLT and functional CLT convergence results for polynomial functionals of the needlet coefficients: here the asymptotic theory is considered in the high-frequency sense. Our proposals emerge from strong empirical motivations, especially in connection with the analysis of cosmological data sets.

Asymptotically anti-de Sitter Proca Stars
Duarte, Miguel
2016-01-01
We show that complex, massive spin-1 fields minimally coupled to Einstein's gravity with a negative cosmological constant, admit asymptotically anti-de Sitter self-gravitating solutions. Focusing on 4-dimensional spacetimes, we start by obtaining analytical solutions in the test-field limit, where the Proca field equations can be solved in a fixed anti-de Sitter background, and then find fully non-linear solutions numerically. These solutions are a natural extension of the recently found asymptotically flat Proca stars and share similar properties with scalar boson stars. In particular, we show that they are stable against spherically symmetric linear perturbations for a range of fundamental frequencies limited by their point of maximum mass. We finish with an overview of the behavior of Proca stars in $5$ dimensions.
An Overview of Geometric Asymptotic Analysis of Continuous and Discrete Painlev\\'e Equations

The classical Painlev\\'e equations are so well known that it may come as a surprise to learn that the asymptotic description of its solutions remains incomplete. The problem lies mainly with the description of families of solutions in the complex domain. Where asymptotic descriptions are known, they are stated in the literature as valid for large connected domains, which include movable poles of families of solutions. However, asymptotic analysis necessarily assumes that the solutions are bou...

The maximum drag reduction asymptote
Choueiri, George H.; Hof, Bjorn
2015-11-01
Addition of long chain polymers is one of the most efficient ways to reduce the drag of turbulent flows. Already very low concentration of polymers can lead to a substantial drag and upon further increase of the concentration the drag reduces until it reaches an empirically found limit, the so called maximum drag reduction (MDR) asymptote, which is independent of the type of polymer used. We here carry out a detailed experimental study of the approach to this asymptote for pipe flow. Particular attention is paid to the recently observed state of elasto-inertial turbulence (EIT) which has been reported to occur in polymer solutions at sufficiently high shear. Our results show that upon the approach to MDR Newtonian turbulence becomes marginalized (hibernation) and eventually completely disappears and is replaced by EIT. In particular, spectra of high Reynolds number MDR flows are compared to flows at high shear rates in small diameter tubes where EIT is found at Re Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under REA grant agreement n° [291734].

A construction of conformal infinity in null and spatial directions is constructed for the Rainbow-flat space-time corresponding to doubly special relativity. From this construction a definition of asymptotic DSRness is put forward which is compatible with the correspondence principle of Rainbow gravity. Furthermore a result equating asymptotically flat space-times with asymptotically DSR spacetimes is presented.

Asymptotic notations are heavily used while analysing runtimes of algorithms. Present paper argues that some of these usages are non trivial, therefore incurring errors in communication of ideas. After careful reconsidera- tion of the various existing notations a new notation is proposed. This notation has similarities with the other heavily used notations like Big-Oh, Big Theta, while being more accurate when describing the order relationship. It has been argued that this notation is more su...
Duality and asymptotic geometries
Boonstra, H J; Skenderis, K
1997-01-01
We consider a series of duality transformations that leads to a constant shift in the harmonic functions appearing in the description of a configuration of branes. This way, for several intersections of branes, we can relate the original brane configuration which is asymptotically flat to a geometry of the type $adS_k \\xx E^l \\xx S^m$. The implications of our results for supersymmetry enhancement, M(atrix) theory at finite N, and for supergravity theories in diverse dimensions are discussed.
Asymptotically Lifshitz Brane-World Black Holes
Ranjbar, Arash; Shahidi, Shahab
2012-01-01
We study the gravity dual of a Lifshitz field theory in the context of a RSII brane-world scenario, taking into account the effects of the extra dimension through the contribution of the electric part of the Weyl tensor. We show that although the Lifshitz space-time cannot be considered as a vacuum solution of the RSII brane-world, the asymptotically Lifshitz solution can. We then study the thermodynamical behavior of such asymptotically Lifshitz black holes. It is shown that the condition on the positivity of entropy imposes an upper bound on the critical exponent $z$. This maximum value of $z$ corresponds to a positive infinite entropy as long as the temperature is kept positive. The stability and phase transition for different spatial topologies are also discussed.

We prove an asymptotic stability result for the water wave equations linearized around small solitary waves. The equations we consider govern irrotational flow of a fluid with constant density bounded below by a rigid horizontal bottom and above by a free surface under the influence of gravity neglecting surface tension. For sufficiently small amplitude waves, with waveform well-approximated by the well-known sech-squared shape of the KdV soliton, solutions of the linearized equations decay a...

The goal here is to look at quantum polarization effects in these spacetimes, and to this aim, we develop a way to compute th...
Asymptotic Symmetries from finite boxes
Andrade, Tomas
2015-01-01
It is natural to regulate an infinite-sized system by imposing a boundary condition at finite distance, placing the system in a "box." This breaks symmetries, though the breaking is small when the box is large. One should thus be able to obtain the asymptotic symmetries of the infinite system by studying regulated systems. We provide concrete examples in the context of Einstein-Hilbert gravity (with negative or zero cosmological constant) by showing in 4 or more dimensions how the Anti-de Sitter and Poincar\\'e asymptotic symmetries can be extracted from gravity in a spherical box with Dirichlet boundary conditions. In 2+1 dimensions we obtain the full double-Virasoro algebra of asymptotic symmetries for AdS$_3$ and, correspondingly, the full Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) algebra for asymptotically flat space. In higher dimensions, a related approach may continue to be useful for constructing a good asymptotically flat phase space with BMS asymptotic symmetries.

In 2 + 1 dimensions we obtain the full double-Virasoro algebra of asymptotic symmetries for AdS3 and, correspondingly, the full Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) algebra for asymptotically flat space. In higher dimensions, a related approach may continue to be useful for constructing a good asymptotically flat phase space with BMS asymptotic symmetries.

In this note we introduce the basic concepts of asymptotic analysis. After some comments of historical interest we begin by defining the order relations O, o, and O{sup {number_sign}}, which enable us to compare the asymptotic behavior of functions of a small positive parameter {epsilon} as {epsilon} {down_arrow} 0. Next, we introduce order functions, asymptotic sequences of order functions and more general gauge sets of order functions and define the concepts of an asymptotic approximation and an asymptotic expansion with respect to a given gauge set. This string of definitions culminates in the introduction of the concept of a regular asymptotic expansion, also known as a Poincare expansion, of a function f : (0, {epsilon}{sub o}) {yields} X, where X is a normed vector space of functions defined on a domain D {epsilon} R{sup N}. We conclude the note with the asymptotic analysis of an initial value problem whose solution is obtained in the form of a regular asymptotic expansion.
Phase Spaces for asymptotically de Sitter Cosmologies
Kelly, William R
2012-01-01
We construct two types of phase spaces for asymptotically de Sitter Einstein-Hilbert gravity in each spacetime dimension $d \\ge 3$. One type contains solutions asymptotic to the expanding spatially-flat ($k=0$) cosmological patch of de Sitter space while the other is asymptotic to the expanding hyperbolic $(k=-1)$ patch. Each phase space has a non-trivial asymptotic symmetry group (ASG) which includes the isometry group of the corresponding de Sitter patch. For $d=3$ and $k=-1$ our ASG also contains additional generators and leads to a Virasoro algebra with vanishing central charge. Furthermore, we identify an interesting algebra (even larger than the ASG) containing two Virasoro algebras related by a reality condition and having imaginary central charges $\\pm i \\frac{3\\ell}{2G}$. On the appropriate phase spaces, our charges agree with those obtained previously using dS/CFT methods. Thus we provide a sense in which (some of) the dS/CFT charges act on a well-defined phase space. Along the way we show that, des...
Regular Variation and Smile Asymptotics
Benaim, Shalom; Friz, Peter
2006-01-01
We consider risk-neutral returns and show how their tail asymptotics translate directly to asymptotics of the implied volatility smile, thereby sharpening Roger Lee's celebrated moment formula. The theory of regular variation provides the ideal mathematical framework to formulate and prove such results. The practical value of our formulae comes from the vast literature on tail asymptotics and our conditions are often seen to be true by simple inspection of known results.
Asymptotics of the instantons of Painleve I
Garoufalidis, Stavros; Kapaev, Andrei; Marino, Marcos
2010-01-01
The 0-instanton solution of Painlev\\'e I is a sequence $(u_{n,0})$ of complex numbers which appears universally in many enumerative problems in algebraic geometry, graph theory, matrix models and 2-dimensional quantum gravity. The asymptotics of the 0-instanton $(u_{n,0})$ for large $n$ were obtained by the third author using the Riemann-Hilbert approach. For $k=0,1,2,...$, the $k$-instanton solution of Painlev\\'e I is a doubly-indexed sequence $(u_{n,k})$ of complex numbers that satisfies an explicit quadratic non-linear recursion relation. The goal of the paper is three-fold: (a) to compute the asymptotics of the 1-instanton sequence $(u_{n,1})$ to all orders in $1/n$ by using the Riemann-Hilbert method, (b) to present formulas for the asymptotics of $(u_{n,k})$ for fixed $k$ and to all orders in $1/n$ using resurgent analysis, and (c) to confirm numerically the predictions of resurgent analysis. We point out that the instanton solutions display a new type of Stokes behavior, induced from the tritronqu\\'ee ...
Extended asymptotic functions - some examples
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Several examples of extended asymptotic functions are exposed. These examples will illustrate the notions introduced in another paper but at the same time they have a significance as realizations of some Schwartz disctibutions: delta(x), H(x), P(1/xsup(n)), etc. The important thing is that the asymptotic functions of these examples (which, on their part, are realizations of the above-mentioned distributions) can be multiplied in the class of the asymptotic functions as opposed to the theory of Schwartz distributions. Some properties of the set of all extended asymptotic functions are considered which are essential for the next step of this approach
Asymptotic stability of solitons for the Benjamin-Ono equation

In this paper, we prove the asymptotic stability of the family of solitons of the Benjamin-Ono equation in the energy space. The proof is based on a Liouville property for solutions close to the solitons for this equation, in the spirit of [Martel, Y. and Merle, F.: Asymptotic stability of solitons for subcritical generalized KdV equations.

AI Yuan-fang; MEI Chi; HUANG Guo-dong; JIANG Shao-jian; CHEN Hong-rong
2006-01-01
An asymptotic semi-analytical method for heat transfer in counter-flow honeycomb regenerator is proposed. By introducing a combined heat-transfer coefficient between the gas and solid phase, a heat transfer model is built based on the thin-walled assumption. The dimensionless thermal equation is deduced by considering solid heat conduction along the passage length. The asymptotic analysis is used for the small parameter of heat conduction term in equation. The first order asymptotic solution to temperature distribution under weak solid heat conduction is achieved after Laplace transformation through the multiple scales method and the symbolic manipulation function in MATLAB. Semi-analytical solutions agree with tests and finite-difference numerical results. It is proved possible for the asymptotic analysis to improve the effectiveness, economics and precision of thermal research on regenerator.
Asymptotic properties of difference schemes of maximum odd accuracy
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The asymptotic estimates of the difference Green function and difference step function are obtained for difference schemes of maximum odd accuracy (2k-1), k = 0(1nh-1), h is step of the net. The problem is reduced to construction of asymptotic expansion of some integrals. Principal estimates are obtained by application of the saddle point method. The saddle points determining asymptotic expansion are situated near finite radius circle and they become close to each other when h → 0. These asymptotic estimates give that the numerical solution convergences to the solution of the continuous problem with the rate 0(hsup(N+α) 1n1nh-1). The width of zone over which an isolated discontinuity spreads out is proportional to 1nh-1
Asymptotic Efficiency in OLEDS
Nelson, Mitchell C
2015-01-01
Asymptotic efficiency (high output without droop) was recently reported for OLEDS in which a thin emitter layer is located at the anti-node in a resonant microcavity. Here we extend our theoretical analysis to treat multi-mode devices with isotropic emitter orientation. We recover our efficiency equations for the limiting cases with an isotropic emitter layer located at the anti-node where output is linear in current, and for an isotropic emitter located at the node where output can exhibit second order losses with an overall efficiency coefficient that depends on loss terms in competition with a cavity factor. Additional scenarios are described where output is driven by spontaneous emission, or mixed spontaneous and stimulated emission, with stimulated emission present in a loss mode, potentially resulting in cavity driven droop or output clamping, and where the emitter layer is a host-guest system.
An asymptotically exact theory of functionally graded piezoelectric shells
Le, Khanh Chau
2016-01-01
An asymptotically exact two-dimensional theory of functionally graded piezoelectric shells is derived by the variational-asymptotic method. The error estimation of the constructed theory is given in the energetic norm. As an application, analytical solution to the problem of forced vibration of a functionally graded piezoceramic cylindrical shell with thickness polarization fully covered by electrodes and excited by a harmonic voltage is found.
Asymptotic heat transfer model in thin liquid films
Chhay, Marx; Dutykh, Denys; Gisclon, Marguerite; Ruyer-Quil, Christian
2015-01-01
In this article, we present a modelling of heat transfer occuring through a liquid film flowing down a vertical wall. This model is formally derived thanks to asymptotic developpment, by considering the physical ratio of typical length scales of the study. A new Nusselt thermal solution is proposed, taking into account the hydrodynamic free surface variations and the contributions of the higher order terms in the asymptotic model are numerically pointed out. The comparisons are provided again...

An asymptotically exact two-dimensional theory of elastic-piezoceramic sandwich shells is derived by the variational-asymptotic method.

As an application, analytical solution to the problem of forced vibration of a circular elastic plate partially covered by two piezoceramic patches with thickness polarization excited by a harmonic voltage is found.
Mass-like invariants for asymptotically hyperbolic metrics
Cortier, Julien; Gicquaud, Romain
2016-01-01
In this article, we classify the set of asymptotic mass-like invariants for asymptotically hyperbolic metrics. It turns out that the standard mass is just one example (but probably the most important one) among the two families of invariants we find. These invariants are attached to finite-dimensional representations of the group of isometries of hyperbolic space. They are then described in terms of wave harmonic polynomials and polynomial solutions to the linearized Einstein equations in Minkowski space.
Asymptotic-induced numerical methods for conservation laws
Garbey, Marc; Scroggs, Jeffrey S.
1990-01-01
Asymptotic-induced methods are presented for the numerical solution of hyperbolic conservation laws with or without viscosity. The methods consist of multiple stages. The first stage is to obtain a first approximation by using a first-order method, such as the Godunov scheme. Subsequent stages of the method involve solving internal-layer problems identified by using techniques derived via asymptotics. Finally, a residual correction increases the accuracy of the scheme. The method is derived and justified with singular perturbation techniques.

Asymptotic Phase for Stochastic Oscillators
Thomas, Peter J.; Lindner, Benjamin
2014-12-01
Oscillations and noise are ubiquitous in physical and biological systems. When oscillations arise from a deterministic limit cycle, entrainment and synchronization may be analyzed in terms of the asymptotic phase function. In the presence of noise, the asymptotic phase is no longer well defined. We introduce a new definition of asymptotic phase in terms of the slowest decaying modes of the Kolmogorov backward operator. Our stochastic asymptotic phase is well defined for noisy oscillators, even when the oscillations are noise dependent. It reduces to the classical asymptotic phase in the limit of vanishing noise. The phase can be obtained either by solving an eigenvalue problem, or by empirical observation of an oscillating density's approach to its steady state.
On the Asymptotics for the Vacuum Einstein Constraint Equations
Corvino, J; Corvino, Justin; Schoen, Richard M.
2003-01-01
Given asymptotically flat initial data on M^3 for the vacuum Einstein field equation, and given a bounded domain in M, we construct solutions of the vacuum constraint equations which agree with the original data inside the given domain, and are identical to that of a suitable Kerr slice (or identical to a member of some other admissible family of solutions) outside a large ball in a given end. The data for which this construction works is shown to be dense in an appropriate topology on the space of asymptotically flat solutions of the vacuum constraints. This construction generalizes work of the first author, where the time-symmetric case was studied.
Asymptotic analysis of rf-heated collisional plasma
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
It is shown that a distribution of electrons in resonance with traveling waves, but colliding with background distributions of electrons and ions, evolves to a steady state. Details of the steady state are given analytically in the asymptotic limit of high electron energy and are compared with numerical solutions. The asymptotic analytic solution may be useful for quickly relating emission data to likely excitations and is more reliable than conventional numerical solutions at high energy. A method of improving numerics at high energy is suggested
Asymptotic safety and the cosmological constant
Falls, Kevin
2016-01-01
We study the non-perturbative renormalisation of quantum gravity in four dimensions. Taking care to disentangle physical degrees of freedom, we observe the topological nature of conformal fluctuations arising from the functional measure. The resulting beta functions possess an asymptotically safe fixed point with a global phase structure leading to classical general relativity for positive, negative or vanishing cosmological constant. If only the conformal fluctuations are quantised we find an asymptotically safe fixed point predicting a vanishing cosmological constant on all scales. At this fixed point we reproduce the critical exponent, ν = 1/3, found in numerical lattice studies by Hamber. Returning to the full theory we find that by setting the cosmological constant to zero the critical exponent agrees with the conformally reduced theory. This suggests the fixed point may be physical while hinting at solution to the cosmological constant problem.
Brane model with two asymptotic regions
Lubo, Musongela
2005-02-01
Some brane models rely on a generalization of the Melvin magnetic universe including a complex scalar field among the sources. We argue that the geometric interpretation of Kip. S. Thorne of this geometry restricts the kind of potential a complex scalar field can display to keep the same asymptotic behavior. While a finite energy is not obtained for a Mexican hat potential in this interpretation, this is the case for a potential displaying a broken phase and an unbroken one. We use for technical simplicity and illustrative purposes an ad hoc potential which however shares some features with those obtained in some supergravity models. We construct a sixth dimensional cylindrically symmetric solution which has two asymptotic regions: the Melvin-like metric on one side and a flat space displaying a conical singularity on the other. The causal structure of the configuration is discussed. Unfortunately, gravity is not localized on the brane.

Quantum fields from global propagators on asymptotically Minkowski and extended de Sitter spacetimes
Vasy, András
2015-01-01
We consider the wave equation on asymptotically Minkowski spacetimes and the Klein-Gordon equation on even asymptotically de Sitter spaces. In both cases we show that the extreme difference of propagators (i.e. retarded propagator minus advanced, or Feynman minus anti-Feynman), defined as Fredholm inverses, induces a symplectic form on the space of solutions with wave front set confined to the radial sets. Furthermore, we construct isomorphisms between the solution spaces and symplectic spaces of asymptotic data. As an application of this result we obtain distinguished Hadamard two-point functions from asymptotic data. Ultimately, we prove that the corresponding Quantum Field Theory on asymptotically de Sitter spacetimes induces canonically a QFT beyond the future and past conformal horizon, i.e. on two even asymptotically hyperbolic spaces. Specifically, we show this to be true both at the level of symplectic spaces of solutions and at the level of Hadamard two-point functions.

Asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes in topologically massive gravity
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We consider asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes in three-dimensional topologically massive gravity with a negative cosmological constant, for all values of the mass parameter μ (μ≠0). We provide consistent boundary conditions that accommodate the recent solutions considered in the literature, which may have a slower falloff than the one relevant for general relativity. These conditions are such that the asymptotic symmetry is in all cases the conformal group, in the sense that they are invariant under asymptotic conformal transformations and that the corresponding Virasoro generators are finite. It is found that, at the chiral point |μl|=1 (where l is the anti-de Sitter radius), allowing for logarithmic terms (absent for general relativity) in the asymptotic behavior of the metric makes both sets of Virasoro generators nonzero even though one of the central charges vanishes.
Stability of Non-Isolated Asymptotic Profiles for Fast Diffusion
Akagi, Goro
2016-07-01
The stability of asymptotic profiles of solutions to the Cauchy-Dirichlet problem for fast diffusion equation (FDE, for short) is discussed. The main result of the present paper is the stability of any asymptotic profiles of least energy. It is noteworthy that this result can cover non-isolated profiles, e.g., those for thin annular domain cases. The method of proof is based on the Łojasiewicz-Simon inequality, which is usually used to prove the convergence of solutions to prescribed limits, as well as a uniform extinction estimate for solutions to FDE. Besides, local minimizers of an energy functional associated with this issue are characterized. Furthermore, the instability of positive radial asymptotic profiles in thin annular domains is also proved by applying the Łojasiewicz-Simon inequality in a different way.
Asymptotic structure of isolated systems
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The main methods to formulate asymptotic flatness conditions are introduced and motivation and basic ideas are emphasized. Any asymptotic flatness condition proposed up to now describes space-times which behave somehow like Minkowski space, and a very explicit exposition of the structure at infinity of Minkowski space is given. This structure is used to describe the asymptotic behaviour of fields on Minkowski space in a frame-dependent way. The definition of null infinity for curved space-time according to Penrose is given and attempts to define spacelike infinity are outlined. The conformal bundle approach to the formulation of asymptotic behaviour is described and its relation to null and spacelike infinity is given, as far as known. (Auth.)

Exponential asymptotics and gravity waves

The problem of irrotational inviscid incompressible free-surface flow is examined in the limit of small Froude number. Since this is a singular perturbation, singularities in the flow field (or its analytic continuation) such as stagnation points, or corners in submerged objects or on rough beds, lead to a divergent asymptotic expansion, with associated Stokes lines. Recent techniques in exponential asymptotics are employed to observe the switching on of exponentially small gravity waves acro...
Asymptotic behavior of atomic momentals
Thakkar, Ajit J.
1987-05-01
Knowledge of the large and small momentum transfer behavior of the electron momentum distribution is an important ingredient in the analysis of experimental isotropic Compton profiles. This behavior ultimately rests upon the asymptotic behavior of atomic momentals (momentum space orbitals). The small momentum Maclaurin expansion and the large momentum asymptotic expansion of atomic momentals with arbitrary angular momentum quantum number are derived in this paper. Their implications for momentum densities and Compton profiles are derived and discussed.
On the rate of asymptotic eigenvalue degeneracy
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The gap between asymptotically degenerate eigenvalues of onedimensional Schroedinger operators is estimated. The procedure is illustrated for two examples, one where the solutions of Schroedinger's equation are explicitly known and one where they are not. For the latter case a comparison theorem for ordinary differential equationsis required. An incidental result is that a semiclassical (W-K-B) method gives a much better approximation to the logarithmic derivative of a wave-function than to the wave-funtion itself; explicit error-bounds for the logarithmic derivative are given.

Vacuum polarization in asymptotically Lifshitz black holes
Quinta, Gonçalo M.; Flachi, Antonino; Lemos, José P. S.
2016-06-01
There has been considerable interest in applying the gauge-gravity duality to condensed matter theories with particular attention being devoted to gravity duals (Lifshitz spacetimes) of theories that exhibit anisotropic scaling. In this context, black hole solutions with Lifshitz asymptotics have also been constructed, focused on incorporating finite temperature effects. The goal here is to look at quantum polarization effects in these spacetimes and, to this aim, we develop a way to compute the coincidence limit of the Green's function for massive, nonminimally coupled scalar fields, adapting to the present situation the analysis developed for the case of asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes. The basics are similar to previous calculations; however, in the Lifshitz case, one needs to extend the previous results to include a more general form for the metric and dependence on the dynamical exponent. All formulas are shown to reduce to the anti-de Sitter (AdS) case studied before once the value of the dynamical exponent is set to unity and the metric functions are accordingly chosen. The analytical results we present are general and can be applied to a variety of cases, in fact, to all spherically symmetric Lifshitz black hole solutions. We also implement the numerical analysis choosing some known Lifshitz black hole solutions as illustration.
A New Class of Asymptotically Non-Chaotic Vacuum Singularities
Klinger, Paul
2015-01-01
The BKL conjecture, stated in the 60s and early 70s by Belinski, Khalatnikov and Lifshitz, proposes a detailed description of the generic asymptotic dynamics of spacetimes as they approach a spacelike singularity. It predicts complicated chaotic behaviour in the generic case, but simpler non-chaotic one in cases with symmetry assumptions or certain kinds of matter fields. Here we construct a new class of four-dimensional vacuum spacetimes containing spacelike singularities which show non-chaotic behaviour. In contrast with previous constructions, no symmetry assumptions are made. Rather, the metric is decomposed in Iwasawa variables and conditions on the asymptotic evolution of some of them are imposed. The constructed solutions contain five free functions of all space coordinates, two of which are constrained by inequalities. We investigate continuous and discrete isometries and compare the solutions to previous constructions. Finally, we give the asymptotic behaviour of the metric components and curvature.
Holography of 3D Asymptotically Flat Black Holes
Fareghbal, Reza
2014-01-01
We study the asymptotically flat rotating hairy black hole solution of a three-dimensional gravity theory which is given by taking flat-space limit (zero cosmological constant limit) of New Massive Gravity (NMG). We propose that the dual field theory of the flat-space limit of NMG can be described by a Contracted Conformal Field Theory (CCFT). Using Flat/CCFT correspondence we construct a stress tensor which yields the conserved charges of the asymptotically flat black hole solution. Furthermore, by taking appropriate limit of the Cardy formula in the parent CFT, we find a Cardy-like formula which reproduces the Wald's entropy of the 3D asymptotically flat black hole.
Asymptotic behaviour of electro-$\\Lambda$ spacetimes
Saw, Vee-Liem
2016-01-01
We derive the asymptotic solutions for vacuum spacetimes with non-zero cosmological constant $\\Lambda$ coupled to Maxwell fields, using the Newman-Penrose formalism. This extends a recent work that dealt with the vacuum Einstein (Newman-Penrose) equations with $\\Lambda=0$. Using these asymptotic solutions, we discuss the mass-loss of an isolated electro-gravitating system with cosmological constant. In a universe with $\\Lambda>0$, the physics of electromagnetic (EM) radiation is relatively straightforward compared to those of gravitational radiation: 1) It is clear that outgoing EM radiation results in a decrease to the Bondi mass of the isolated system. 2) It is also perspicuous that if any incoming EM radiation from elsewhere is present, those beyond the isolated system's cosmological horizon would eventually arrive at the spacelike $\\mathcal{I}$ and increase the Bondi mass of the isolated system. Hence, the (outgoing and incoming) EM radiation fields do not couple with the Bondi mass-loss formula in any un...

The Riemannian 10j symbols are spin networks that assign an amplitude to each 4-simplex in the Barrett-Crane model of Riemannian quantum gravity. This amplitude is a function of the areas of the 10 faces of the 4-simplex, and Barrett and Williams have shown that one contribution to its asymptotics comes from the Regge action for all non-degenerate 4-simplices with the specified face areas. However, we show numerically that the dominant contribution comes from degenerate 4-simplices. As a consequence, one can compute the asymptotics of the Riemannian 10j symbols by evaluating a `degenerate spin network', where the rotation group SO(4) is replaced by the Euclidean group of isometries of R^3. We conjecture formulas for the asymptotics of a large class of Riemannian and Lorentzian spin networks, including the Lorentzian 10j symbols, in terms of these degenerate spin networks.
Asymptotics for restricted integer compositions
Malandro, Martin E
2011-01-01
We study the compositions of an integer n where the part sizes of the compositions are restricted to lie in a finite set. We obtain asymptotic formulas for the number of such compositions, the total and average number of parts among all such compositions, and the total and average number of times a particular part size appears among all such compositions. Several of our asymptotics have the additional property that their absolute errors---not just their percentage errors---go to 0 as n goes to infinity. Along the way we also obtain recurrences and generating functions for calculating several of these quantities. Our asymptotic formulas come from the meromorphic analysis of our generating functions. Our results also apply to questions about certain kinds of tilings and rhythm patterns.
Superradiant instabilities of asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes
Green, Stephen R.; Hollands, Stefan; Ishibashi, Akihiro; Wald, Robert M.
2016-06-01
We study the linear stability of asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes in general relativity in spacetime dimension d≥slant 4. Our approach is an adaptation of the general framework of Hollands and Wald, which gives a stability criterion in terms of the sign of the canonical energy, { E }. The general framework was originally formulated for static or stationary and axisymmetric black holes in the asymptotically flat case, and the stability analysis for that case applies only to axisymmetric perturbations. However, in the asymptotically anti-de Sitter case, the stability analysis requires only that the black hole have a single Killing field normal to the horizon and there are no restrictions on the perturbations (apart from smoothness and appropriate behavior at infinity). For an asymptotically anti-de Sitter black hole, we define an ergoregion to be a region where the horizon Killing field is spacelike; such a region, if present, would normally occur near infinity. We show that for black holes with ergoregions, initial data can be constructed such that { E }\\lt 0, so all such black holes are unstable. To obtain such initial data, we first construct an approximate solution to the constraint equations using the WKB method, and then we use the Corvino–Schoen technique to obtain an exact solution. We also discuss the case of charged asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes with generalized ergoregions.
Asymptotic risks of Viterbi segmentation
Kuljus, Kristi
2010-01-01
We consider the maximum likelihood (Viterbi) alignment of a hidden Markov model (HMM). In an HMM, the underlying Markov chain is usually hidden and the Viterbi alignment is often used as the estimate of it. This approach will be referred to as the Viterbi segmentation. The goodness of the Viterbi segmentation can be measured by several risks. In this paper, we prove the existence of asymptotic risks. Being independent of data, the asymptotic risks can be considered as the characteristics of the model that illustrate the long-run behavior of the Viterbi segmentation.
ASYMPTOTIC METHODS OF STATISTICAL CONTROL

2014-10-01
Full Text Available Statistical control is a sampling control based on the probability theory and mathematical statistics. The article presents the development of the methods of statistical control in our country. It discussed the basics of the theory of statistical control – the plans of statistical control and their operational characteristics, the risks of the supplier and the consumer, the acceptance level of defectiveness and the rejection level of defectiveness. We have obtained the asymptotic method of synthesis of control plans based on the limit average output level of defectiveness. We have also developed the asymptotic theory of single sampling plans and formulated some unsolved mathematical problems of the theory of statistical control
Asymptotic freedom for nonrelativistic confinement
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Some aspects of asymptotic freedom are discussed in the context of a simple two-particle nonrelativistic confining potential model. In this model, asymptotic freedom follows from the similarity of the free-particle and bound state radial wave functions at small distances and for the same angular momentum and the same large energy. This similarity, which can be understood using simple quantum mechanical arguments, can be used to show that the exact response function approaches that obtained when final state interactions are ignored. A method of calculating corrections to this limit is given, and explicit examples are given for the case of a harmonic oscillator

We comment on Weinberg's interesting analysis of asymptotically safe inflation (arXiv:0911.3165). We find that even if the gravity theory exhibits an ultraviolet fixed point, the energy scale during inflation is way too low to drive the theory close to the fixed point value. We choose the specific renormalization groupflow away from the fixed point towards the infrared region that reproduces the Newton's constant and today's cosmological constant. We follow this RG flow path to scales below the Planck scale to study the stability of the inflationary scenario. Again, we find that some fine tuning is necessary to get enough efolds of infflation in the asymptotically safe inflationary scenario.

Full Text Available In this work we study the asymptotic behavior of solutions of a dissipative plate equation in $mathbb{R}^N$ with periodic coefficients. We use the Bloch waves decomposition and a convenient Lyapunov function to derive a complete asymptotic expansion of solutions as $to infty$. In a first approximation, we prove that the solutions for the linear model behave as the homogenized heat kernel.
Asymptotic pointwise behavior for systems of semilinear wave equations in three space dimensions
Katayama, Soichiro
2011-01-01
In connection with the weak null condition, Alinhac introduced a sufficient condition for global existence of small amplitude solutions to systems of semilinear wave equations in three space dimensions. We introduce a slightly weaker sufficient condition for the small data global existence, and we investigate the asymptotic pointwise behavior of global solutions for systems satisfying this condition. As an application, the asymptotic behavior of global solutions under the Alinhac condition is also derived.
Asymptotic analysis and numerical modeling of mass transport in tubular structures
Cardone, G; Sirakov, Y
2009-01-01
In the paper the flow in a thin tubular structure is considered. The velocity of the flow stands for a coefficient in the diffusion-convection equation set in the thin structure. An asymptotic expansion of solution is constructed. This expansion is used further for justification of an asymptotic domain decomposition strategy essentially reducing the memory and the time of the code. A numerical solution obtained by this strategy is compared to the numerical solution obtained by a direct FEM computation.
Asymptotic speed of spreading in a delay lattice differential equation without quasimonotonicity
Fuzhen Wu
2014-01-01
This article concerns the asymptotic speed of spreading in a delay lattice differential equation without quasimonotonicity. We obtain the speed of spreading by constructing an auxiliary undelayed equation, whose speed of spreading is the same as that of the original equation. The minimal wave speed of bounded positive traveling wave solutions is obtained from the asymptotic spreading.

2007-12-01
New explicit sufficient conditions for the asymptotic stability of the zero solution of higher order difference equations are obtained. These criteria can be applied to autonomous and nonautonomous equations. The celebrated Clark asymptotic stability criterion is improved. Also, applications to models from mathematical biology and macroeconomics are given.

Full Text Available We investigate the oscillatory and asymptotic behavior of a class of odd-order nonlinear differential equations with impulses. We obtain criteria that ensure every solution is either oscillatory or (nonoscillatory and zero convergent. We provide several examples to show that impulses play an important role in the asymptotic behaviors of these equations.

We deal with asymptotic speed of wave propagation for a discrete reaction-diffusion equation. We find the minimal wave speed c* from the characteristic equation and show that c* is just the asymptotic speed of wave propagation. The isotropic property and the existence of solution of the initial value problem for the given equation are also discussed.

A grouped data model for Weibull distribution is considered. Under mild con-ditions, the maximum likelihood estimators(MLE) are shown to be identifiable, strongly consistent, asymptotically normal, and satisfy the law of iterated logarithm. Newton iter- ation algorithm is also considered, which converges to the unique solution of the likelihood equation. Moreover, we extend these results to a random case.

Asymptotically open quantum systems
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In the present thesis we investigate the structure of time-dependent equations of motion in quantum mechanics.We start from two coupled systems with an autonomous equation of motion. A limit, in which the dynamics of one of the two systems has a decoupled evolution and imposes a non-autonomous evolution for the second system is identified. A result due to K. Hepp that provides a classical limit for dynamics turns out to be part and parcel for this limit and is generalized in our work. The method introduced by J.S. Howland for the solution of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation is interpreted as such a limit. Moreover, we associate our limit with the modern theory of quantization. (orig.)
Asymptotic linear stability of solitary water waves
Pego, Robert L
2010-01-01
We prove an asymptotic stability result for the water wave equations linearized around small solitary waves. The equations we consider govern irrotational flow of a fluid with constant density bounded below by a rigid horizontal bottom and above by a free surface under the influence of gravity neglecting surface tension. For sufficiently small amplitude waves, with waveform well-approximated by the well-known sech-squared shape of the KdV soliton, solutions of the linearized equations decay at an exponential rate in an energy norm with exponential weight translated with the wave profile. This holds for all solutions with no component in (i.e., symplectically orthogonal to) the two-dimensional neutral-mode space arising from infinitesimal translational and wave-speed variation of solitary waves. We also obtain spectral stability in an unweighted energy norm.
Asymptotic methods in mechanics of solids
Bauer, Svetlana M; Smirnov, Andrei L; Tovstik, Petr E; Vaillancourt, Rémi
2015-01-01
The construction of solutions of singularly perturbed systems of equations and boundary value problems that are characteristic for the mechanics of thin-walled structures are the main focus of the book. The theoretical results are supplemented by the analysis of problems and exercises. Some of the topics are rarely discussed in the textbooks, for example, the Newton polyhedron, which is a generalization of the Newton polygon for equations with two or more parameters. After introducing the important concept of the index of variation for functions special attention is devoted to eigenvalue problems containing a small parameter. The main part of the book deals with methods of asymptotic solutions of linear singularly perturbed boundary and boundary value problems without or with turning points, respectively. As examples, one-dimensional equilibrium, dynamics and stability problems for rigid bodies and solids are presented in detail. Numerous exercises and examples as well as vast references to the relevant Russi...

In the present paper we begin studies on the large time asymptotic behavior for solutions of the Cauchy problem for the Novikov--Veselov equation (an analog of KdV in 2 + 1 dimensions) at positive energy. In addition, we are focused on a family of reflectionless (transparent) potentials parameterized by a function of two variables. In particular, we show that there are no isolated soliton type waves in the large time asymptotics for these solutions in contrast with well-known large time asymptotics for solutions of the KdV equation with reflectionless initial data.
Multichannel Scattering Problem with Non-trivial Asymptotic Non-adiabatic Coupling
Yakovlev, S L; Elander, N; Belyaev, A K
2016-01-01
The multichannel scattering problem in an adiabatic representation is considered. The non-adiabatic coupling matrix is assumed to have a non-trivial constant asymptotic behavior at large internuclear separations. The asymptotic solutions at large internuclear distances are constructed. It is shown that these solutions up to the first order of perturbation theory are identical to the asymptotic solutions of the re-projection approach, which was proposed earlier as a remedy for the electron translation problem in the context of the Born-Oppenheimer treatment.

Dynamics of loops: asymptotic freedom and quark confinement
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
New manifestly gauge invariant diagram technique in the loop space is developed. For that purpose a boot-strap ' equation, determining the self-consistent asymptotics, is solved in the framework of the perturbation theory. The boot-strap equation is equivalent to the system including the Bianchi identity and the planar equation accompanied by Euclidean boundary conditions. It is shown that the area law of quark confinement is a self-consistent solution of the boot-strap equation. The frame diagrams constructed by means of certain operator technique reproduce asymptotic freedom in the ultraviolet range
Asymptotic heat transfer model in thin liquid films
Chhay, Marx; Gisclon, Marguerite; Ruyer-Quil, Christian
2015-01-01
In this article, we present a modelling of heat transfer occuring through a liquid film flowing down a vertical wall. This model is formally derived thanks to asymptotic developpment, by considering the physical ratio of typical length scales of the study. A new Nusselt thermal solution is proposed, taking into account the hydrodynamic free surface variations and the contributions of the higher order terms in the asymptotic model are numerically pointed out. The comparisons are provided against the resolution of the full Fourier equations in a steady state frame.
Counting spanning trees on fractal graphs and their asymptotic complexity
Anema, Jason A.; Tsougkas, Konstantinos
2016-09-01
Using the method of spectral decimation and a modified version of Kirchhoff's matrix-tree theorem, a closed form solution to the number of spanning trees on approximating graphs to a fully symmetric self-similar structure on a finitely ramified fractal is given in theorem 3.4. We show how spectral decimation implies the existence of the asymptotic complexity constant and obtain some bounds for it. Examples calculated include the Sierpiński gasket, a non-post critically finite analog of the Sierpiński gasket, the Diamond fractal, and the hexagasket. For each example, the asymptotic complexity constant is found.
Asymptotic analysis of spatial discretizations in implicit Monte Carlo
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Densmore, Jeffery D [Los Alamos National Laboratory
2009-01-01
We perform an asymptotic analysis of spatial discretizations in Implicit Monte Carlo (IMC). We consider two asymptotic scalings: one that represents a time step that resolves the mean-free time, and one that corresponds to a fixed, optically large time step. We show that only the latter scaling results in a valid spatial discretization of the proper diffusion equation, and thus we conclude that IMC only yields accurate solutions when using optically large spatial cells if time steps are also optically large. We demonstrate the validity of our analysis with a set of numerical examples.

On the charge density and asymptotic tail of a monopole
Harland, Derek
2015-01-01
We propose a new definition for the abelian magnetic charge density of a non-abelian monopole, based on zero-modes of an associated Dirac operator. Unlike the standard definition of the charge density, this density is smooth in the core of the monopole. We show that this charge density induces a magnetic field whose expansion in powers of 1/r agrees with that of the conventional asymptotic magnetic field to all orders. We also show that the asymptotic field can be easily calculated from the spectral curve. Explicit examples are given for known monopole solutions.
Contact mechanics of articular cartilage layers asymptotic models
Argatov, Ivan
2015-01-01
This book presents a comprehensive and unifying approach to articular contact mechanics with an emphasis on frictionless contact interaction of thin cartilage layers. The first part of the book (Chapters 1–4) reviews the results of asymptotic analysis of the deformational behavior of thin elastic and viscoelastic layers. A comprehensive review of the literature is combined with the authors’ original contributions. The compressible and incompressible cases are treated separately with a focus on exact solutions for asymptotic models of frictionless contact for thin transversely isotropic layers bonded to rigid substrates shaped like elliptic paraboloids. The second part (Chapters 5, 6, and 7) deals with the non-axisymmetric contact of thin transversely isotropic biphasic layers and presents the asymptotic modelling methodology for tibio-femoral contact. The third part of the book consists of Chapter 8, which covers contact problems for thin bonded inhomogeneous transversely isotropic elastic layers, and Cha...

Vacuum polarization in asymptotically Lifshitz black holes
Quinta, Gonçalo M; Lemos, José P S
2016-01-01
There has been considerable interest in applying the gauge/gravity duality to condensed matter theories with particular attention being devoted to gravity duals (Lifshitz spacetimes) of theories that exhibit anisotropic scaling. In this context, black hole solutions with Lifshitz asymptotics have also been constructed aiming at incorporating finite temperature effects. The goal here is to look at quantum polarization effects in these spacetimes, and to this aim, we develop a way to compute the coincidence limit of the Green's function for massive, non-minimally coupled scalar fields, adapting to the present situation the analysis developed for the case of asymptotically anti de Sitter black holes. The basics are similar to previous calculations, however in the Lifshitz case one needs to extend previous results to include a more general form for the metric and dependence on the dynamical exponent. All formulae are shown to reduce to the AdS case studied before once the value of the dynamical exponent is set to...
ASYMPTOTIC THEORY OF INITIAL VALUE PROBLEMS FOR NONLINEAR PERTURBED KLEIN-GORDON EQUATIONS
Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)
GAN Zai-hui; ZHANG Jian
2005-01-01
The asymptotic theory of initial value problems for a class of nonlinear perturbed Klein-Gordon equations in two space dimensions is considered. Firstly, using the contraction mapping principle, combining some priori estimates and the convergence of Bessel function, the well-posedness of solutions of the initial value problem in twice continuous differentiable space was obtained according to the equivalent integral equation of initial value problem for the Klein-Gordon equations. Next, formal approximations of initial value problem was constructed by perturbation method and the asymptotic validity of the formal approximation is got. Finally, an application of the asymptotic theory was given, the asymptotic approximation degree of solutions for the initial value problem of a specific nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation was analyzed by using the asymptotic approximation theorem.
Asymptotic Behaviour of Neutron Transport Processes
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The solution of the initial-value problem of the time-dependent linear Boltzmann equation corresponds to a semigroup of linear transformations: Initial-value problem: δn/δt = An n(x, v, 0) = f(x, v) Solution: n(x, v, t) = Ttf(x, v) Tt = eAt Lehner and Wing were the first to use a Laplace transform technique for the study of the asymptotic behaviour of the solution. Mika, Bednarz, Albertoni, Kaper et al. extended this technique to more general problems. The main task is always to find the spectrum of the Boltzmann operator A. Asymptotic behaviour is closely related to the point spectrum of A , if the latter exists. This paper uses a completely new approach, mean ergodic theory, the study of asymptotic properties of semigroups of bounded transformations in a Banach space. Two types of function spaces are considered; (1) The Banach space Ltm of functions integrable on the six-dimensional μ- space of statistical mechanics. The Banach norm ||f|| equals the total number of neutrons in the system; (2) The Hilbert space L2m of functions square integrable on the μ-space. The inner product (f, g) equals the totalNcount rate of the neutron distribution f due to an array of neutron detectors described by the weight function g of the space dual to that of all neutron distributions. Excluding the case of a super-critical system, the semigroup generated by the Boltzmann operator A is uniformly bounded || Tt II K, t ≥ 0. The splitting theorem of mean ergodic theory can be applied to T t . The initial distribution is split uniquely into a sum of a reversible and a flight vector. Now a special property of the semigroup generated by the Boltzmann operator A enters: there exists a characteristic time t0 > 0 depending only on the geometry and chemistry of the system such that Ttf(x,v) > 0 for all (x, v) , for all f and all t ≥ 0. From this property it is possible to deduce that an equilibrium distribution exists and is unique. Taking the Hilbert space L2m criticality of a
Localized travelling waves in the asymptotic suction boundary layer
Kreilos, Tobias; Schneider, Tobias M
2016-01-01
We present two spanwise-localized travelling wave solutions in the asymptotic suction boundary layer, obtained by continuation of solutions of plane Couette flow. One of the solutions has the vortical structures located close to the wall, similar to spanwise-localized edge states previously found for this system. The vortical structures of the second solution are located in the free stream far above the laminar boundary layer and are supported by a secondary shear gradient that is created by a large-scale low-speed streak. The dynamically relevant eigenmodes of this solution are concentrated in the free stream, and the departure into turbulence from this solution evolves in the free stream towards the walls. For invariant solutions in free-stream turbulence, this solution thus shows that that the source of energy of the vortical structures can be a dynamical structure of the solution itself, instead of the laminar boundary layer.

Asymptotic structure of isolated systems
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
I discuss the general ideas underlying the subject of ''asymptotics'' in general relativity and describe the current status of the concepts resulting from these ideas. My main concern will be the problem of consistency. By this I mean the question as to whether the geometric assumptions inherent in these concepts are compatible with the dynamics of the theory, as determined by Einstein's equations. This rather strong bias forces me to leave untouched several issues related to asymptotics, discussed in the recent literature, some of which are perhaps thought equally, or more important, by other workers in the field. In addition I shall, for coherence of presentation, mainly consider Einstein's equations in vacuo. When attention is confined to small neighbourhoods of null and spacelike infinity, this restriction is not important, but is surely relevant for more global issues. (author)
Asymptotic safety goes on shell
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
It is well known in quantum field theory that the off-shell effective action depends on the gauge choice and field parametrization used in calculating it. Nevertheless, the typical scheme in which the scenario of asymptotically safe gravity is investigated is an off-shell version of the functional renormalization group equation. Working with the Einstein-Hilbert truncation as a test bed, we develop a new scheme for the analysis of asymptotically safe gravity in which the on-shell part of the effective action is singled out and we show that the beta function for the essential coupling has no explicit gauge dependence. In order to reach our goal, we introduce several technical novelties, including a different decomposition of the metric fluctuations, a new implementation of the ghost sector and a new cut-off scheme. We find a nontrivial fixed point, with a value of the cosmological constant that is independent of the gauge-fixing parameters. (paper)

Asymptotic analysis of Hoppe trees
Leckey, Kevin
2012-01-01
We introduce and analyze a random tree model associated to Hoppe's urn. The tree is built successively by adding nodes to the existing tree when starting with the single root node. In each step a node is added to the tree as a child of an existing node where these parent nodes are chosen randomly with probabilities proportional to their weights. The root node has weight $\\vartheta>0$, a given fixed parameter, all other nodes have weight 1. This resembles the stochastic dynamic of Hoppe's urn. For $\\vartheta=1$ the resulting tree is the well-studied random recursive tree. We analyze the height, internal path length and number of leaves of the Hoppe tree with $n$ nodes as well as the depth of the last inserted node asymptotically as $n\\to \\infty$. Mainly expectations, variances and asymptotic distributions of these parameters are derived.
Asymptotic Excisions of Metric Spaces and Ideals of Asymptotic Coarse Roe Algebras

2006-01-01
We introduce in this note the notions of asymptotic excision of proper metric spaces and asymptotic equivalence relation for subspaces of metric spaces, which are relevant in characterizing spatial ideals of the asymptotic coarse Roe algebras. We show that the lattice of the asymptotic equivalence classes of the subspaces of a proper metric space is isomorphic to the lattice of the spatial ideals of the asymptotic Roe algebra. For asymptotic excisions of the metric space, we also establish a Mayer-Vietoris sequence in K-theory of the asymptotic coarse Roe algebras.
Asymptotically Lifshitz spacetimes with universal horizons in $(1 + 2)$ dimensions

2016-01-01
Horava gravity theory possesses global Lifshitz space as a solution and has been conjectured to provide a natural framework for Lifshitz holography. We derive the conditions on the two derivative Horava gravity Lagrangian that are necessary for static, asymptotically Lifshitz spacetimes with flat transverse dimensions to contain a universal horizon, which plays a similar thermodynamic role as the Killing horizon in general relativity. Specializing to z=2 in 1+2 dimensions, we then numerically construct such regular solutions over the whole spacetime. We calculate the mass for these solutions and show that, unlike the asymptotically anti-de Sitter case, the first law applied to the universal horizon is straightforwardly compatible with a thermodynamic interpretation.

Asymptotically flat black holes in 2 +1 dimensions
Alkaç, Gökhan; Kilicarslan, Ercan; Tekin, Bayram
2016-04-01
Asymptotically flat black holes in 2 +1 dimensions are a rarity. We study the recently found black flower solutions (asymptotically flat black holes with deformed horizons), static black holes, rotating black holes and the dynamical black flowers (black holes with radiative gravitons) of the purely quadratic version of new massive gravity. We show how they appear in this theory and we also show that they are also solutions to the infinite order extended version of the new massive gravity, that is the Born-Infeld extension of new massive gravity with an amputated Einsteinian piece. The same metrics also solve the topologically extended versions of these theories, with modified conserved charges and the thermodynamical quantities, such as the Wald entropy. Besides these we find new conformally flat radiating type solutions to these extended gravity models. We also show that these metrics do not arise in Einstein's gravity coupled to physical perfect fluids.
Exponential asymptotics and capillary waves
Chapman, S. J.; Vanden-Broeck, J.
2002-01-01
Recently developed techniques in exponential asymptotics beyond all orders are employed on the problem of potential flows with a free surface and small surface tension, in the absence of gravity. Exponentially small capillary waves are found to be generated on the free surface where the equipotentials from singularities in the flow (for example, stagnation points and corners) meet it. The amplitude of these waves is determined, and the implications are considered for many quite general flows....
Asymptotic safety: A simple example
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We use the Gross-Neveu model in 2f expansion where the model is known to be renormalizable to all orders. In this limit, the fixed-point action as well as all universal critical exponents can be computed analytically. As asymptotic safety has become an important scenario for quantizing gravity, our description of a well-understood model is meant to provide for an easily accessible and controllable example of modern nonperturbative quantum field theory.
Extended Analytic Device Optimization Employing Asymptotic Expansion
Mackey, Jonathan; Sehirlioglu, Alp; Dynsys, Fred
2013-01-01
Analytic optimization of a thermoelectric junction often introduces several simplifying assumptionsincluding constant material properties, fixed known hot and cold shoe temperatures, and thermallyinsulated leg sides. In fact all of these simplifications will have an effect on device performance,ranging from negligible to significant depending on conditions. Numerical methods, such as FiniteElement Analysis or iterative techniques, are often used to perform more detailed analysis andaccount for these simplifications. While numerical methods may stand as a suitable solution scheme,they are weak in gaining physical understanding and only serve to optimize through iterativesearching techniques. Analytic and asymptotic expansion techniques can be used to solve thegoverning system of thermoelectric differential equations with fewer or less severe assumptionsthan the classic case. Analytic methods can provide meaningful closed form solutions and generatebetter physical understanding of the conditions for when simplifying assumptions may be valid.In obtaining the analytic solutions a set of dimensionless parameters, which characterize allthermoelectric couples, is formulated and provide the limiting cases for validating assumptions.Presentation includes optimization of both classic rectangular couples as well as practically andtheoretically interesting cylindrical couples using optimization parameters physically meaningful toa cylindrical couple. Solutions incorporate the physical behavior for i) thermal resistance of hot andcold shoes, ii) variable material properties with temperature, and iii) lateral heat transfer through legsides.

In this paper, we discuss the error estimation of the linear finite element solution on criss-cross mesh. Using space orthogonal decomposition techniques, we obtain an asymptotic expansion and superconvergence results of the finite element solution. We first prove that the asymptotic expansion has different forms on the two kinds of nodes and then derive a high accuracy combination formula of the approximate derivatives.

This paper studies the asymptotic behaviour of steady supersonic flow past a piecewise smooth corner or bend. Under the hypothese that both vertex angle and the total variation of tangent along the boundary are small, it is shown that the solution can be obtained by a modified Glimm scheme, and that the asymptotic behaviour of the solution is determined by the velocity of incoming flow and the limit of the tangent of the boundary at infinity.
Exact and asymptotic results for insurance risk models with surplus-dependent premiums
Albrecher, Hansjörg; Palmowski, Zbigniew; Regensburger, Georg; Rosenkranz, Markus
2011-01-01
In this paper we develop a symbolic technique to obtain asymptotic expressions for ruin probabilities and discounted penalty functions in renewal insurance risk models when the premium income depends on the present surplus of the insurance portfolio. The analysis is based on boundary problems for linear ordinary differential equations with variable coefficients. The algebraic structure of the Green's operators allows us to develop an intuitive way of tackling the asymptotic behavior of the solutions, leading to exponential-type expansions and Cram\\'er-type asymptotics. Furthermore, we obtain closed-form solutions for more specific cases of premium functions in the compound Poisson risk model.
Asymptotic algebra for charged particles and radiation
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
A C*-algebra of asymptotic fields which properly describes the infrared structure in quantum electrodynamics is proposed. The algebra is generated by the null asymptotic of electromagnetic field and the time asymptotic of charged matter fields which incorporate the corresponding Coulomb fields. As a consequence Gauss' law is satisfied in the algebraic setting. Within this algebra the observables can be identified by the principle of gauge invariance. A class of representations of the asymptotic algebra is constructed which resembles the Kulish-Faddeev treatment of electrically charged asymptotic fields. (orig.)
Asymptotics of the filtration problem for suspension in porous media
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The mechanical-geometric model of the suspension filtering in the porous media is considered. Suspended solid particles of the same size move with suspension flow through the porous media - a solid body with pores - channels of constant cross section. It is assumed that the particles pass freely through the pores of large diameter and are stuck at the inlet of pores that are smaller than the particle size. It is considered that one particle can clog only one small pore and vice versa. The particles stuck in the pores remain motionless and form a deposit. The concentrations of suspended and retained particles satisfy a quasilinear hyperbolic system of partial differential equations of the first order, obtained as a result of macro-averaging of micro-stochastic diffusion equations. Initially the porous media contains no particles and both concentrations are equal to zero; the suspension supplied to the porous media inlet has a constant concentration of suspended particles. The flow of particles moves in the porous media with a constant speed, before the wave front the concentrations of suspended and retained particles are zero. Assuming that the filtration coefficient is small we construct an asymptotic solution of the filtration problem over the concentration front. The terms of the asymptotic expansions satisfy linear partial differential equations of the first order and are determined successively in an explicit form. It is shown that in the simplest case the asymptotics found matches the known asymptotic expansion of the solution near the concentration front.

We study large time asymptotics of solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation ut + uux - uxx + uxxx = 0, x ∈ R, t ＞ 0.We are interested in the large time asymptotics for the case when the initial data have an arbitrary size. We prove that ifthe initial data u0 ∈ Hs (R) ∩L1 (R), where s ＞ -1/2,then there exists a uniquesolution u (t,x) ∈ C∞ ((0, ∞);H∞ (R)) to the Cauchy problem for the Korteweg-de Vries-Burgers equation, which has asymptotics u (t) = t-1/2fM((·)t-1/2) + o(t-1/2) as t →∞, where fM is the self-similar solution for the Burgers equation. Moreover if xu0 (x) ∈ L1 (R),then the asymptotics are true u (t) = t-1/2fM((·)t-1/2) + O(t-1/2-γ),where γ∈ (0,1/2).
Asymptotic Analysis of Fiber-Reinforced Composites of Hexagonal Structure
Kalamkarov, Alexander L.; Andrianov, Igor V.; Pacheco, Pedro M. C. L.; Savi, Marcelo A.; Starushenko, Galina A.
2016-08-01
The fiber-reinforced composite materials with periodic cylindrical inclusions of a circular cross-section arranged in a hexagonal array are analyzed. The governing analytical relations of the thermal conductivity problem for such composites are obtained using the asymptotic homogenization method. The lubrication theory is applied for the asymptotic solution of the unit cell problems in the cases of inclusions of large and close to limit diameters, and for inclusions with high conductivity. The lubrication method is further generalized to the cases of finite values of the physical properties of inclusions, as well as for the cases of medium-sized inclusions. The analytical formulas for the effective coefficient of thermal conductivity of the fiber-reinforced composite materials of a hexagonal structure are derived in the cases of small conductivity of inclusions, as well as in the cases of extremely low conductivity of inclusions. The three-phase composite model (TPhM) is applied for solving the unit cell problems in the cases of the inclusions with small diameters, and the asymptotic analysis of the obtained solutions is performed for inclusions of small sizes. The obtained results are analyzed and illustrated graphically, and the limits of their applicability are evaluated. They are compared with the known numerical and asymptotic data in some particular cases, and very good agreement is demonstrated.

We consider the Cauchy problem for systems of nonlinear wave equations with multiple propagation speeds in three space dimensions. Under the null condition for such systems, the global existence of small amplitude solutions is known. In this paper, we will show that the global solution is asymptotically free in the energy sense, by obtaining the asymptotic pointwise behavior of the derivatives of the solution. Nonetheless we can also show that the pointwise behavior of the solution itself may be quite different from that of the free solution.

Modeling broadband poroelastic propagation using an asymptotic approach
Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)
Vasco, Donald W.
2009-05-01
An asymptotic method, valid in the presence of smoothly-varying heterogeneity, is used to derive a semi-analytic solution to the equations for fluid and solid displacements in a poroelastic medium. The solution is defined along trajectories through the porous medium model, in the manner of ray theory. The lowest order expression in the asymptotic expansion provides an eikonal equation for the phase. There are three modes of propagation, two modes of longitudinal displacement and a single mode of transverse displacement. The two longitudinal modes define the Biot fast and slow waves which have very different propagation characteristics. In the limit of low frequency, the Biot slow wave propagates as a diffusive disturbance, in essence a transient pressure pulse. Conversely, at low frequencies the Biot fast wave and the transverse mode are modified elastic waves. At intermediate frequencies the wave characteristics of the longitudinal modes are mixed. A comparison of the asymptotic solution with analytic and numerical solutions shows reasonably good agreement for both homogeneous and heterogeneous Earth models.
The Einstein Constraint Equations on Asymptotically Euclidean Manifolds
Dilts, James
2015-01-01
In this dissertation, we prove a number of results regarding the conformal method of finding solutions to the Einstein constraint equations. These results include necessary and sufficient conditions for the Lichnerowicz equation to have solutions, global supersolutions which guarantee solutions to the conformal constraint equations for near-constant-mean-curvature (near-CMC) data as well as for far-from-CMC data, a proof of the limit equation criterion in the near-CMC case, as well as a model problem on the relationship between the asymptotic constants of solutions and the ADM mass. We also prove a characterization of the Yamabe classes on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds and resolve the (conformally) prescribed scalar curvature problem on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds for the case of nonpositive scalar curvatures. Many, though not all, of the results in this dissertation have been previously published in [Dilts13b], [DIMM14], [DL14], [DM15], and [DGI15]. This article is the author's Ph.D. dissertation...
Asymptotic black hole quasinormal frequencies
Motl, Lubos; Neitzke, Andrew
2003-01-01
We give a new derivation of the quasinormal frequencies of Schwarzschild black holes in d greater than or equal to 4 and Reissner-Nordstrom black holes in d = 4, in the limit of infinite damping. For Schwarzschild in d greater than or equal to 4 we find that the asymptotic real part is THawkinglog(3) for scalar perturbations and for some gravitational perturbations; this confirms a result previously obtained by other means in the case d = 4. For Reissner-Nordstrom in d = 4 w...
Asymptotics of robust utility maximization
Knispel, Thomas
2012-01-01
For a stochastic factor model we maximize the long-term growth rate of robust expected power utility with parameter $\\lambda\\in(0,1)$. Using duality methods the problem is reformulated as an infinite time horizon, risk-sensitive control problem. Our results characterize the optimal growth rate, an optimal long-term trading strategy and an asymptotic worst-case model in terms of an ergodic Bellman equation. With these results we propose a duality approach to a "robust large deviations" criterion for optimal long-term investment.
Asymptotics for Associated Random Variables
Oliveira, Paulo Eduardo
2012-01-01
The book concerns the notion of association in probability and statistics. Association and some other positive dependence notions were introduced in 1966 and 1967 but received little attention from the probabilistic and statistics community. The interest in these dependence notions increased in the last 15 to 20 years, and many asymptotic results were proved and improved. Despite this increased interest, characterizations and results remained essentially scattered in the literature published in different journals. The goal of this book is to bring together the bulk of these results, presenting
Inspiralling, nonprecessing, spinning black hole binary spacetime via asymptotic matching
Ireland, Brennan; Mundim, Bruno C.; Nakano, Hiroyuki; Campanelli, Manuela
2016-05-01
We construct a new global, fully analytic, approximate spacetime which accurately describes the dynamics of nonprecessing, spinning black hole binaries during the inspiral phase of the relativistic merger process. This approximate solution of the vacuum Einstein's equations can be obtained by asymptotically matching perturbed Kerr solutions near the two black holes to a post-Newtonian metric valid far from the two black holes. This metric is then matched to a post-Minkowskian metric even farther out in the wave zone. The procedure of asymptotic matching is generalized to be valid on all spatial hypersurfaces, instead of a small group of initial hypersurfaces discussed in previous works. This metric is well suited for long term dynamical simulations of spinning black hole binary spacetimes prior to merger, such as studies of circumbinary gas accretion which requires hundreds of binary orbits.
Asymptotically flat black holes with scalar hair: a review
Herdeiro, Carlos A R
2015-01-01
We consider the status of black hole solutions with non-trivial scalar fields but no gauge fields, in four dimensional asymptotically flat space-times, reviewing both classical results and recent developments. We start by providing a simple illustration on the physical difference between black holes in electro-vacuum and scalar-vacuum. Next, we review no-scalar-hair theorems. In particular, we detail an influential theorem by Bekenstein and stress three key assumptions: 1) the type of scalar field equation; 2) the spacetime symmetry inheritance by the scalar field; 3) an energy condition. Then, we list regular (on and outside the horizon), asymptotically flat BH solutions with scalar hair, organizing them by the assumption which is violated in each case and distinguishing primary from secondary hair. We provide a table summary of the state of the art.
Conformal symmetries of gravity from asymptotic methods: further developments
Lambert, Pierre-Henry
2014-01-01
In this thesis, the symmetry structure of gravitational theories at null infinity is studied further, in the case of pure gravity in four dimensions and also in the case of Einstein-Yang-Mills theory in $d$ dimensions with and without a cosmological constant. The first part of this thesis is devoted to the presentation of asymptotic methods (symmetries, solution space and surface charges) applied to gravity in the case of the BMS gauge in three and four spacetime dimensions. The second part of this thesis contains the original contributions. Firstly, it is shown that the enhancement from Lorentz to Virasoro algebra also occurs for asymptotically flat spacetimes defined in the sense of Newman-Unti. As a first application, the transformation laws of the Newman-Penrose coefficients characterizing solution space of the Newman-Unti approach are worked out, focusing on the inhomogeneous terms that contain the information about central extensions of the theory. These transformations laws make the conformal structure...

An asymptotic preserving scheme for strongly anisotropic elliptic problems
Degond, Pierre; Deluzet, Fabrice; Negulescu, Claudia
2009-01-01
21 pages In this article we introduce an asymptotic preserving scheme designed to compute the solution of a two dimensional elliptic equation presenting large anisotropies. We focus on an anisotropy aligned with one direction, the dominant part of the elliptic operator being supplemented with Neumann boundary conditions. A new scheme is introduced which allows an accurate resolution of this elliptic equation for an arbitrary anisotropy ratio.
Asymptotic Analysis for One-Name Credit Derivatives

We propose approximate solutions to price defaultable zero-coupon bonds as well as the corresponding credit default swaps and bond options. We consider the intensity-based approach of a two-correlated-factor Hull-White model with stochastic volatility of interest rate process. Perturbations from the stochastic volatility are computed by using an asymptotic analysis. We also study the sensitive properties of the defaultable bond prices and the yield curves.

Asymptotic black hole quasinormal frequencies
Motl, L; Motl, Lubos; Neitzke, Andrew
2003-01-01
We give a simple derivation of the quasinormal frequencies of Schwarzschild black holes in d>=4 and non-extremal Reissner-Nordstrom black holes in d=4, in the limit of infinite damping. For Schwarzschild in d=4 the asymptotic real part of the frequency is (T_Hawking)log(1+2cos(pi.j)), where j is the spin of the perturbation; this confirms a result previously obtained by other means. For Schwarzschild in d>4 we find that the asymptotic real part is (T_Hawking)log(3) for scalar perturbations. For non-extremal Reissner-Nordstrom in d=4 we find a specific but generally aperiodic behavior for the quasinormal frequencies, both for scalar perturbations and for axial electromagnetic-gravitational perturbations; there is nevertheless a hint that the value (T_Hawking)log(2) may be special in this case. The formulae are obtained by studying the monodromy of the perturbation analytically continued to the complex plane.
Asymptotically Free Gauge Theories. I
Wilczek, Frank; Gross, David J.
1973-07-01
Asymptotically free gauge theories of the strong interactions are constructed and analyzed. The reasons for doing this are recounted, including a review of renormalization group techniques and their application to scaling phenomena. The renormalization group equations are derived for Yang-Mills theories. The parameters that enter into the equations are calculated to lowest order and it is shown that these theories are asymptotically free. More specifically the effective coupling constant, which determines the ultraviolet behavior of the theory, vanishes for large space-like momenta. Fermions are incorporated and the construction of realistic models is discussed. We propose that the strong interactions be mediated by a "color" gauge group which commutes with SU(3)xSU(3). The problem of symmetry breaking is discussed. It appears likely that this would have a dynamical origin. It is suggested that the gauge symmetry might not be broken, and that the severe infrared singularities prevent the occurrence of non-color singlet physical states. The deep inelastic structure functions, as well as the electron position total annihilation cross section are analyzed. Scaling obtains up to calculable logarithmic corrections, and the naive lightcone or parton model results follow. The problems of incorporating scalar mesons and breaking the symmetry by the Higgs mechanism are explained in detail.
Asymptotic safety goes on shell
Benedetti, Dario
2011-01-01
It is well known in quantum field theory that the off-shell effective action depends on the gauge choice and field parametrization used in calculating it. Nevertheless, the typical scheme in which the scenario of asymptotically safe gravity is investigated is an off-shell version of the functional renormalization group equation. Working with the Einstein-Hilbert truncation as a test bed, we develop a new scheme for the analysis of asymptotically safe gravity in which the on-shell part of the effective action is singled out and we show that the beta function for the essential coupling has no explicit gauge-dependence. In order to reach our goal, we introduce several technical novelties, including a different decomposition of the metric fluctuations, a new implementation of the ghost sector, and a new cut-off scheme. We find a non-trivial fixed point, with a value of the cosmological constant which is independent of the gauge-fixing parameters.
Asymptotic conservation laws in field theory
Anderson, Ian M.; Torre, Charles G.
1996-01-01
A new, general, field theoretic approach to the derivation of asymptotic conservation laws is presented. In this approach asymptotic conservation laws are constructed directly from the field equations according to a universal prescription which does not rely upon the existence of Noether identities or any Lagrangian or Hamiltonian formalisms. The resulting general expressions of the conservation laws enjoy important invariance properties and synthesize all known asymptotic conservation...
Asymptotics of near unit roots (in Russian)
Stanislav Anatolyev; Nikolay Gospodinov
2012-01-01
Sometimes the conventional asymptotic theory yields that the limiting distribution changes discontinuously, or that the asymptotic distribution does not approximate accurately the actual finite-sample distribution. In such situations one finds useful an asymptotic tool of drifting parameterizations where certain parameters are allowed to depend explicitly on the sample size. It proves useful, among other things, for impulse response analysis and forecasting of strongly dependent processes at ...
Asymptotic independence and a network traffic model
Maulik, Krishanu; Resnick, Sidney; Rootzén, Holger
2002-01-01
The usual concept of asymptotic independence, as discussed in the context of extreme value theory, requires the distribution of the coordinatewise sample maxima under suitable centering and scaling to converge to a product measure. However, this definition is too broad to conclude anything interesting about the tail behavior of the product of two random variables that are asymptotically independent. Here we introduce a new concept of asymptotic independence which allows u...
Supersymmetric asymptotic safety is not guaranteed
DEFF Research Database (Denmark)
Intriligator, Kenneth; Sannino, Francesco
It was recently shown that certain perturbatively accessible, non-supersymmetric gauge-Yukawa theories have UV asymptotic safety, without asymptotic freedom: the UV theory is an interacting RG fixed point, and the IR theory is free. We here investigate the possibility of asymptotic safety in...... supersymmetric theories, and use unitarity bounds, and the a-theorem, to rule it out in broad classes of theories. The arguments apply without assuming perturbation theory. Therefore, the UV completion of a non-asymptotically free susy theory must have additional, non-obvious degrees of freedom, such as those of...
Why are tensor field theories asymptotically free?
Rivasseau, Vincent
2015-01-01
In this pedagogic letter we explain the combinatorics underlying the generic asymptotic freedom of tensor field theories. We focus on simple combinatorial models with a $1/p^2$ propagator and quartic interactions and on the comparison between the intermediate field representations of the vector, matrix and tensor cases. The transition from asymptotic freedom (tensor case) to asymptotic safety (matrix case) is related to the crossing symmetry of the matrix vertex whereas in the vector case, the lack of asymptotic freedom ("Landau ghost"), as in the ordinary scalar case, is simply due to the absence of any wave function renormalization at one loop.
A note on asymptotically anti-de Sitter quantum spacetimes in loop quantum gravity
Bodendorfer, Norbert
2015-01-01
A framework conceptually based on the conformal techniques employed to study the structure of the gravitational field at infinity is set up in the context of loop quantum gravity to describe asymptotically anti-de Sitter quantum spacetimes. A conformal compactification of the spatial slice is performed, which, in terms of the rescaled metric, has now finite volume, and can thus be conveniently described by spin networks states. The conformal factor used is a physical scalar field, which has the necessary asymptotics for many asymptotically AdS black hole solutions.
Thermodynamics of asymptotically safe theories
Rischke, Dirk H
2015-01-01
We investigate the thermodynamic properties of a novel class of gauge-Yukawa theories that have recently been shown to be completely asymptotically safe, because their short-distance behaviour is determined by the presence of an interacting fixed point. Not only do all the coupling constants freeze at a constant and calculable value in the ultraviolet, their values can even be made arbitrarily small for an appropriate choice of the ratio $N_c/N_f$ of fermion colours and flavours in the Veneziano limit. Thus, a perturbative treatment can be justified. We compute the pressure, entropy density, and thermal degrees of freedom of these theories to next-to-next-to-leading order in the coupling constants.

The aim of this work is to study the traveling wavefronts in a discrete-time integral recursion with a Gauss kernel in R2.We first establish the existence of traveling wavefronts as well as their precise asymptotic behavior.Then,by employing the comparison principle and upper and lower solutions technique,we prove the asymptotic stability and uniqueness of such monostable wavefronts in the sense of phase shift and circumnutation.We also obtain some similar results in R.

This paper considers the distributed computation of confidence regions tethered to multidimensional parameter estimation under linear measurement models. In particular, the considered confidence regions are non-asymptotic, this meaning that the number of required measurements is finite. Distributed solutions for the computation of non-asymptotic confidence regions are proposed, suited to wireless sensor networks scenarios. Their performances are compared in terms of required traffic load, bot...
Shadow boundary effects in hybrid numerical-asymptotic methods for high frequency scattering

The hybrid numerical-asymptotic (HNA) approach aims to reduce the computational cost of conventional numerical methods for high frequency wave scattering problems by enriching the numerical approximation space with oscillatory basis functions, chosen based on partial knowledge of the high frequency solution asymptotics.

Dissipation of acoustic-gravity waves: an asymptotic approach.
Godin, Oleg A
2014-12-01
Acoustic-gravity waves in the middle and upper atmosphere and long-range propagation of infrasound are strongly affected by air viscosity and thermal conductivity. To characterize the wave dissipation, it is typical to consider idealized environments, which admit plane-wave solutions. Here, an asymptotic approach is developed that relies instead on the assumption that spatial variations of environmental parameters are gradual. It is found that realistic assumptions about the atmosphere lead to rather different predictions for wave damping than do the plane-wave solutions. A modification to the Sutherland-Bass model of infrasound absorption is proposed. PMID:25480091

We consider the asymptotic expansion of the logarithmic derivative of the Airy function Ai'(z)/Ai(z), and also its reciprocal Ai(z)/Ai'(z), as |z| {yields} {infinity}. We derive simple, closed-form solutions for the coefficients which appear in these expansions, which are of interest since they are encountered in a wide variety of problems. The solutions are presented as Mellin transforms of given functions; this fact, together with the methods employed, suggests further avenues for research.
Antigraviting Bubbles with the Non-Minkowskian Asymptotics
Barnaveli, A T
1996-01-01
The conventional approach describes the spherical domain walls by the same state equation as the flat ones. In such case they also must be gravitationally repulsive, what is seemingly in contradiction with Birkhoff's theorem. However this theorem is not valid for the solutions which do not display Minkowski geometry in the infinity. In this paper the solution of Einstein equations describing the stable gravitationally repulsive spherical domain wall is considered within the thin-wall formalism for the case of the non-Minkowskian asymptotics.
Asymptotic spectral theory for nonlinear time series
Shao, Xiaofeng; Wu, Wei Biao
2007-01-01
We consider asymptotic problems in spectral analysis of stationary causal processes. Limiting distributions of periodograms and smoothed periodogram spectral density estimates are obtained and applications to the spectral domain bootstrap are given. Instead of the commonly used strong mixing conditions, in our asymptotic spectral theory we impose conditions only involving (conditional) moments, which are easily verifiable for a variety of nonlinear time series.

We present wormhole solutions to Horava non-relativistic gravity theory in vacuum. We show that, if the parameter $\\lambda$ is set to one, transversable wormholes connecting two asymptotically de Sitter or anti-de Sitter regions exist. In the case of arbitrary $\\lambda$, the asymptotic regions have a more complicated metric with constant curvature. We also show that, when the detailed balance condition is violated softly, tranversable and asymptotically Minkowski, de Sitter or anti-de Sitter ...
Penrose type inequalities for asymptotically hyperbolic graphs
Dahl, Mattias; Sakovich, Anna
2013-01-01
In this paper we study asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds given as graphs of asymptotically constant functions over hyperbolic space $\\bH^n$. The graphs are considered as subsets of $\\bH^{n+1}$ and carry the induced metric. For such manifolds the scalar curvature appears in the divergence of a 1-form involving the integrand for the asymptotically hyperbolic mass. Integrating this divergence we estimate the mass by an integral over an inner boundary. In case the inner boundary satisfies a convexity condition this can in turn be estimated in terms of the area of the inner boundary. The resulting estimates are similar to the conjectured Penrose inequality for asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. The work presented here is inspired by Lam's article concerning the asymptotically Euclidean case.
Asymptotic continuum wave functions for two-center problem of quantum mechanics
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Asymptotic (large-r) solutions are constructed for the continuum state of the electron moving in the field of two fixed Coulomb centres. A 3C-type solution is derived for a two-center problem of quantum mechanics. When calculating approximately, the terms of order O(1/(kr)2) in Schroedinger equation and the 3C-type solution are modified. The essential feature of the modified solution is that the wave function describing the electronic motion relatively to one of the Coulomb center, also depends on the Sommerfeld parameter of another center. In the point dipole approximation, the asymptotic wave functions are obtained for slow electron scattering. It is shown that in the particular case Z1+Z2=0 this function differs from the Redmond asymptotic by a product rs, where Re{s}≥-0.5

The integral version of the method of matched asymptotic expansion is applied to the construction of the solution over long intervals of time.

It is shown that the solution exists within the same range of Froude n...

We prove that in a certain class of conformal data on an asymptotically cylindrical manifold, if the conformally decomposed Einstein constraint equations do not admit a solution, then one can always find a nontrivial solution to the limit equation first explored by Dahl, Gicquaud, and Humbert in [DGH11]. We also give an example of a Ricci curvature condition on the manifold which precludes the existence of a solution to this limit equation, showing that such a limit criterion can be a useful tool for studying the Einstein constraint equations on manifolds with asymptotically cylindrical ends.
Asymptotic fingerprinting capacity for non-binary alphabets
Boesten, Dion
2011-01-01
We compute the channel capacity of non-binary fingerprinting under the Marking Assumption, in the limit of large coalition size c. The solution for the binary case was found by Huang and Moulin. They showed that asymptotically, the capacity is $1/(c^2 2\\ln 2)$, the interleaving attack is optimal and the arcsine distribution is the optimal bias distribution. In this paper we prove that the asymptotic capacity for general alphabet size q is $(q-1)/(c^2 2\\ln q)$. Our proof technique does not reveal the optimal attack or bias distribution. The fact that the capacity is an increasing function of q shows that there is a real gain in going to non-binary alphabets.

@@This paper studies the behaviors of the solutions in the vicinity of a givenalmost periodic solution of the autonomous system x′=f(x), x Rn , (1) where f C1 (Rn ,Rn ). Since the periodic solutions of the autonomous system are not Liapunov asymptotic stable, we consider the weak orbitally stability.

Asymptotically AdS spacetimes with a timelike Kasner singularity
Ren, Jie
2016-07-01
Exact solutions to Einstein's equations for holographic models are presented and studied. The IR geometry has a timelike cousin of the Kasner singularity, which is the less generic case of the BKL (Belinski-Khalatnikov-Lifshitz) singularity, and the UV is asymptotically AdS. This solution describes a holographic RG flow between them. The solution's appearance is an interpolation between the planar AdS black hole and the AdS soliton. The causality constraint is always satisfied. The entanglement entropy and Wilson loops are discussed. The boundary condition for the current-current correlation function and the Laplacian in the IR is examined. There is no infalling wave in the IR, but instead, there is a normalizable solution in the IR. In a special case, a hyperscaling-violating geometry is obtained after a dimensional reduction.
Avoidance of singularities in asymptotically safe Quantum Einstein Gravity
Kofinas, Georgios
2015-01-01
New general spherically symmetric solutions have been derived with a cosmological "constant" \\Lambda as a source. This \\Lambda field is not constant but it satisfies the properties of the asymptotically safe gravity at the ultraviolet fixed point. The importance of these solutions comes from the fact that they describe the near to the centre region of black hole spacetimes as this is modified by the Renormalization Group scaling behaviour of the fields. The consistent set of field equations which respect the Bianchi identities is derived and solved. One of the solutions (with conventional sign of temporal-radial metric components) is timelike geodesically complete, and although there is still a curvature divergent origin, this is never approachable by an infalling massive particle which is reflected at a finite distance due to the repulsive origin. Another family of solutions (of both signatures) range from a finite radius outwards, they cannot be extended to the centre of spherical symmetry, and the curvatur...
Asymptotics of phase and wave functions

For single and twochannel nucleon-nucleon scattering the asymptotic form of the phase function for r->0 were taken into account for the asymptotic behavior of the wave function. Asymptotics of the wave function will not r^(l+1), and will have a more complex view and be also determined by the behavior of the potential near the origin. Have examined the cases for nonsingular (weakly singular) and strongly singular potentials. Were the numerical calculations of phase, amplitude and wave functions for the nucleon-nucleon potential Argonne v18. Considered 1S0-, 3P0-, 3P1- states of the np- system.
Asymptotic study of subcritical graph classes
Drmota, Michael; Kang, Mihyun; Kraus, Veronika; Rué, Juanjo
2010-01-01
We present a unified general method for the asymptotic study of graphs from the so-called "subcritical"$ $ graph classes, which include the classes of cacti graphs, outerplanar graphs, and series-parallel graphs. This general method works both in the labelled and unlabelled framework. The main results concern the asymptotic enumeration and the limit laws of properties of random graphs chosen from subcritical classes. We show that the number $g_n/n!$ (resp. $g_n$) of labelled (resp. unlabelled) graphs on $n$ vertices from a subcritical graph class ${\\cG}=\\cup_n {\\cG_n}$ satisfies asymptotically the universal behaviour

The Lorentzian proper vertex amplitude: Asymptotics
Engle, Jonathan; Zipfel, Antonia
2015-01-01
In previous work, the Lorentzian proper vertex amplitude for a spin-foam model of quantum gravity was derived. In the present work, the asymptotics of this amplitude are studied in the semi-classical limit. The starting point of the analysis is an expression for the amplitude as an action integral with action differing from that in the EPRL case by an extra `projector' term which scales linearly with spins only in the asymptotic limit. New tools are introduced to generalize stationary phase methods to this case. For the case of boundary data which can be glued to a non-degenerate Lorentzian 4-simplex, the asymptotic limit of the amplitude is shown to equal the single Feynman term, showing that the extra term in the asymptotics of the EPRL amplitude has been eliminated.

A quantum kinematics for asymptotically flat spacetimes
Campiglia, Miguel
2014-01-01
We construct a quantum kinematics for asymptotically flat spacetimes based on the Koslowski-Sahlmann (KS) representation. The KS representation is a generalization of the representation underlying Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) which supports, in addition to the usual LQG operators, the action of `background exponential operators' which are connection dependent operators labelled by `background' $su(2)$ electric fields. KS states have, in addition to the LQG state label corresponding to 1 dimensional excitations of the triad, a label corresponding to a `background' electric field which describes 3 dimensional excitations of the triad. Asymptotic behaviour in quantum theory is controlled through asymptotic conditions on the background electric fields which label the {\\em states} and the background electric fields which label the {\\em operators}. Asymptotic conditions on the triad are imposed as conditions on the background electric field state label while confining the LQG spin net graph labels to compact sets. We...

We study heat traces associated with positive unbounded operators with compact inverses. With the help of the inverse Mellin transform we derive necessary conditions for the existence of a short time asymptotic expansion. The conditions are formulated in terms of the meromorphic extension of the associated spectral zeta-functions and proven to be verified for a large class of operators. We also address the problem of convergence of the obtained asymptotic expansions. General results are illustrated with a number of explicit examples.

We investigate the dependence of the eigenvalues on this altitude. For the first eigenvalues and eigenfunctions, we obtain an asymptotic expansion at any order at the scale cube root of this altitude due to the influence of the Airy operator. Asymptotic expansions of the eigenpairs are provided, ex...
Asymptotic representation theorems for poverty indices
Lo, Gane Samb; Sall, Serigne Touba
2010-01-01
We set general conditions under which the general poverty index, which summarizes all the available indices, is asymptotically represented with some empirical processes. This representation theorem offers a general key, in most directions, for the asymptotics of the bulk of poverty indices and issues in poverty analysis. Our representation results uniformly hold on a large collection of poverty indices. They enable the continuous measure of poverty with longitudinal data.

States in these Hilbert spaces can be interpreted as describing fluctuations around fiducial fixed backgrounds. When the backgr...

Asymptotic dynamics on a singular chemotaxis system modeling onset of tumor angiogenesis
Wang, Zhi-An; Xiang, Zhaoyin; Yu, Pei
2016-02-01
The asymptotic behavior of solutions to a singular chemotaxis system modeling the onset of tumor angiogenesis in two and three dimensional whole spaces is investigated in the paper. By a Cole-Hopf type transformation, the singular chemotaxis is converted into a non-singular hyperbolic system. Then we study the transformed system and establish the global existence, asymptotic decay rates and diffusion convergence rate of solutions by the method of energy estimates. The main novelty of our results is the finding of a hidden interactive dissipation structure in the system by which the energy dissipation is established.
Stable Asymptotically Free Extensions (SAFEs) of the Standard Model
Holdom, Bob; Zhang, Chen
2014-01-01
We consider possible extensions of the standard model that are not only completely asymptotically free, but are such that the UV fixed point is completely UV attractive. All couplings flow towards a set of fixed ratios in the UV. Motivated by low scale unification, semi-simple gauge groups with elementary scalars in various representations are explored. The simplest model is a version of the Pati-Salam model. The Higgs boson is truly elementary but dynamical symmetry breaking from strong interactions may be needed at the unification scale. A hierarchy problem, much reduced from grand unified theories, is still in need of a solution.
Measuring sectoral diversification in an asymptotic multi-factor framework

We investigate a multi-factor extension of the asymptotic single risk factor (ASRF) model that underlies the capital charges of the "Basel II Accord". In this extended model, it is still possible to derive closed-form solutions for the risk contributions to Value-at-Risk and Expected Shortfall. As an application of the risk contribution formulae we introduce a new concept for a diversification measure. The use of this new measure is illustrated by an example calculated with a two-factor model...
A Penrose inequality for asymptotically locally hyperbolic graphs
de Lima, Levi Lopes
2013-01-01
We use the inverse mean curvature flow to prove a sharp Alexandrov-Fenchel-type inequality for a class of hypersurfaces in certain locally hyperbolic manifolds. As an application we derive an optimal Penrose inequality for asymptotically locally hyperbolic graphs in any dimension $n\\geq 3$. When the horizon has the topology of a compact surface of genus at least one, this provides an affirmative answer, for this class of initial data sets, to a question posed by Gibbons, Chru\\'sciel and Simon on the validity of a Penrose-type inequality for black hole solutions carrying a higher genus horizon.
Nonlinear vibrations of buckled plates by an asymptotic numerical method
Benchouaf, Lahcen; Boutyour, El Hassan
2016-03-01
This work deals with nonlinear vibrations of a buckled von Karman plate by an asymptotic numerical method and harmonic balance approach. The coupled nonlinear static and dynamic problems are transformed into a sequence of linear ones solved by a finite-element method. The static behavior of the plate is first computed. The fundamental frequency of nonlinear vibrations of the plate, about any equilibrium state, is obtained. To improve the validity range of the power series, Padé approximants are incorporated. A continuation technique is used to get the whole solution. To show the effectiveness of the proposed methodology, numerical tests are presented.
Time-harmonic Maxwell equations with asymptotically linear polarization
Qin, Dongdong; Tang, Xianhua
2016-06-01
This paper is concerned with the following time-harmonic semilinear Maxwell equation: nabla× (nabla× u)+λ u=f(x,u), &in Ω ν × u=0, &on partialΩ, where {Ωsubset {R}3} is a bounded, convex domain and {ν : partial Ωto {R}3} is the exterior normal. Motivated by recent work of Bartsch and Mederski and based on some observations and new techniques, we study above equation by developing the generalized Nehari manifold method. Particularly, existence of ground-state solutions of Nehari-Pankov type for the equation is established with asymptotically linear nonlinearity.
Black hole remnant in asymptotic Anti-de Sitter space
Wen, Wen-Yu
2015-01-01
It is known that a solution of remnant were suggested for black hole ground state after surface gravity is corrected by loop quantum effect. On the other hand, a Schwarzschild black hole in asymptotic Anti-de Sitter space would tunnel into the thermal soliton solution known as the Hawking-Page phase transition. In this letter, we investigate the low temperature phase of three-dimensional BTZ black hole and four-dimensional AdS Schwarzschild black hole. We find that the thermal soliton is energetically favored than the remnant solution at low temperature in three dimensions, while Planck-size remnant is still possible in four dimensions. Though the BTZ remnant seems energetically disfavored, we argue that it is still possible to be found in the overcooled phase if strings were present and its implication is discussed.
Pólya distribution and its asymptotics in nucleation theory
Dubrovskii, V. G.
2014-02-01
A model of condensation-decay rate constants that are linear with respect to the number of monomers in the nucleus is considered. In a particular case of stable growth, this model leads to an exact solution of discrete kinetic equations of the theory of heterogeneous nucleation in the form of the Pólya distribution function. An asymptotic solution in the region of large nucleus sizes that satisfies the normalization condition and provides correct mean nucleus size has been found. It is shown that, in terms of the logarithmic invariant size, the obtained distribution has a universal time-independent form. The obtained solution, being more general than the double-exponent distribution used previously, describes both Gaussian and asymmetric distributions depending on the rate constant of condensation on a bare core. The obtained results are useful for modeling processes in some systems, in particular, the growth of linear chains, two-dimensional clusters, and filamentary nanocrystals.

Asymptotic analysis of discrete schemes for non-equilibrium radiation diffusion
Cui, Xia; Yuan, Guang-wei; Shen, Zhi-jun
2016-05-01
Motivated by providing well-behaved fully discrete schemes in practice, this paper extends the asymptotic analysis on time integration methods for non-equilibrium radiation diffusion in [2] to space discretizations. Therein studies were carried out on a two-temperature model with Larsen's flux-limited diffusion operator, both the implicitly balanced (IB) and linearly implicit (LI) methods were shown asymptotic-preserving. In this paper, we focus on asymptotic analysis for space discrete schemes in dimensions one and two. First, in construction of the schemes, in contrast to traditional first-order approximations, asymmetric second-order accurate spatial approximations are devised for flux-limiters on boundary, and discrete schemes with second-order accuracy on global spatial domain are acquired consequently. Then by employing formal asymptotic analysis, the first-order asymptotic-preserving property for these schemes and furthermore for the fully discrete schemes is shown. Finally, with the help of manufactured solutions, numerical tests are performed, which demonstrate quantitatively the fully discrete schemes with IB time evolution indeed have the accuracy and asymptotic convergence as theory predicts, hence are well qualified for both non-equilibrium and equilibrium radiation diffusion.
More on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spaces in topologically massive gravity
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Recently, the asymptotic behavior of three-dimensional anti-de Sitter (AdS) gravity with a topological mass term was investigated. Boundary conditions were given that were asymptotically invariant under the two dimensional conformal group and that included a falloff of the metric sufficiently slow to consistently allow pp-wave type of solutions. Now, pp waves can have two different chiralities. Above the chiral point and at the chiral point, however, only one chirality can be considered, namely, the chirality that has the milder behavior at infinity. The other chirality blows up faster than AdS and does not define an asymptotically AdS spacetime. By contrast, both chiralities are subdominant with respect to the asymptotic behavior of AdS spacetime below the chiral point. Nevertheless, the boundary conditions given in the earlier treatment only included one of the two chiralities (which could be either one) at a time. We investigate in this paper whether one can generalize these boundary conditions in order to consider simultaneously both chiralities below the chiral point. We show that this is not possible if one wants to keep the two-dimensional conformal group as asymptotic symmetry group. Hence, the boundary conditions given in the earlier treatment appear to be the best possible ones compatible with conformal symmetry. In the course of our investigations, we provide general formulas controlling the asymptotic charges for all values of the topological mass (not just below the chiral point).
Non-existence of asymptotically flat geons in (2 + 1) gravity
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
Geons, small topological structures that exhibit particle properties such as charge and angular momentum without the presence of matter sources, have been extensively discussed in (3 + 1)-dimensional general relativity. Given the recent renewal of interest in (2 + 1) gravity, it is natural to ask whether or not the notion of geons extends to three dimensions. We prove here that, in contrast to the (3 + 1)-dimensional case, there are no (2 + 1)-dimensional asymptotically flat solutions of the vacuum Einstein or Einstein-Maxwell equations containing geons. In contrast, (2 + 1)-dimensional asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes can indeed contain geons; however, the geons are always hidden behind a single black hole horizon. We also prove sufficient conditions for the non-existence of (2 + 1)-dimensional asymptotically flat geon-containing solutions.
AdS-like spectrum of the asymptotically G\\"odel space-times
Konoplya, R A
2011-01-01
A black hole immersed in a rotating Universe, described by the Gimon-Hashimoto solution, is tested on stability against scalar field perturbations. Unlike the previous studies on perturbations of this solution, which dealt only with the limit of slow Universe rotation j, we managed to separate variables in the perturbation equation for the general case of arbitrary rotation. This leads to qualitatively different dynamics of perturbations, because the exact effective potential does not allow for Schwarzschild-like asymptotic of the wave function in the form of purely outgoing waves. The Dirichlet boundary conditions are allowed instead, which result in a totally different spectrum of asymptotically G\\"odel black holes: the spectrum of quasinormal frequencies is similar to the spectrum of asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes. At large and intermediate overtones N, the spectrum is equidistant in N. In the limit of small black holes, quasinormal modes (QNMs) approach the normal modes of the empty G\\"odel spa...
A unified treatment for non-asymptotic and asymptotic approaches to minimax signal detection
Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)
Clément Marteau
2016-01-01
Full Text Available We are concerned with minimax signal detection. In this setting, we discuss non-asymptotic and asymptotic approaches through a unified treatment. In particular, we consider a Gaussian sequence model that contains classical models as special cases, such as, direct, well-posed inverse and ill-posed inverse problems. Working with certain ellipsoids in the space of squared-summable sequences of real numbers, with a ball of positive radius removed, we compare the construction of lower and upper bounds for the minimax separation radius (non-asymptotic approach and the minimax separation rate (asymptotic approach that have been proposed in the literature. Some additional contributions, bringing to light links between non-asymptotic and asymptotic approaches to minimax signal, are also presented. An example of a mildly ill-posed inverse problem is used for illustrative purposes. In particular, it is shown that tools used to derive ‘asymptotic’ results can be exploited to draw ‘non-asymptotic’ conclusions, and vice-versa. In order to enhance our understanding of these two minimax signal detection paradigms, we bring into light hitherto unknown similarities and links between non-asymptotic and asymptotic approaches.

Analytic Asymptotic Solution to Spherical Relativistic Shock Breakout
Yalinewich, Almog
2016-01-01
We investigate the relativistic breakout of a shock wave from the surface of a star. In this process, each fluid shell is endowed with some kinetic and thermal energy by the shock, and then continues to accelerate adiabatically by converting thermal energy into kinetic energy. This problem has been previously studied for a mildly relativistic breakout, where the acceleration ends close to the surface of the star. The current work focuses on the case where the acceleration ends at distances much greater than the radius of the star. We derive an analytic description for the hydrodynamic evolution of the ejecta in this regime, and validate it using a numerical simulation. We also provide predictions for the expected light curves and spectra from such an explosion. The relevance to astrophysical explosions is discussed, and it is shown that such events require more energy than is currently believed to result from astrophysical explosions.
Solutions to the reconstruction problem in asymptotic safety
Morris, Tim R.; Slade, Zoë H.
2015-11-01
Starting from a full renormalised trajectory for the effective average action (a.k.a. infrared cutoff Legendre effective action) Γ k , we explicitly reconstruct corresponding bare actions, formulated in one of two ways. The first step is to construct the corresponding Wilsonian effective action S k through a tree-level expansion in terms of the vertices provided by Γ k . It forms a perfect bare action giving the same renormalised trajectory. A bare action with some ultraviolet cutoff scale Λ and infrared cutoff k necessarily produces an effective average action Γ k Λ that depends on both cutoffs, but if the already computed S Λ is used, we show how Γ k Λ can also be computed from Γ k by a tree-level expansion, and that Γ k Λ → Γ k as Λ → ∞. Along the way we show that Legendre effective actions with different UV cutoff profiles, but which correspond to the same Wilsonian effective action, are related through tree-level expansions. All these expansions follow from Legendre transform relationships that can be derived from the original one between Γ k Λ and S k .

Starting from a full renormalised trajectory for the effective average action (a.k.a. infrared cutoff Legendre effective action) $\\Gamma_k$, we explicitly reconstruct corresponding bare actions, formulated in one of two ways. The first step is to construct the corresponding Wilsonian effective action $S^k$ through a tree-level expansion in terms of the vertices provided by $\\Gamma_k$. It forms a perfect bare action giving the same renormalised trajectory. A bare action with some ultraviolet cutoff scale $\\Lambda$ and infrared cutoff $k$ necessarily produces an effective average action $\\Gamma^\\Lambda_k$ that depends on both cutoffs, but if the already computed $S^\\Lambda$ is used, we show how $\\Gamma^\\Lambda_k$ can also be computed from $\\Gamma_k$ by a tree-level expansion, and that $\\Gamma^\\Lambda_k\\to\\Gamma_k$ as $\\Lambda\\to\\infty$. Along the way we show that Legendre effective actions with different UV cutoff profiles, but which correspond to the same Wilsonian effective action, are related through tree-le...
Functional truncations in asymptotic safety for quantum gravity
Dietz, Juergen
2016-01-01
Finite dimensional truncations and the single field approximation have thus far played dominant roles in investigations of asymptotic safety for quantum gravity. This thesis is devoted to exploring asymptotic safety in infinite dimensional, or functional, truncations of the effective action as well as the effects that can be caused by the single field approximation in this context. It begins with a comprehensive analysis of the three existing flow equations of the single field f(R) truncation by determining their spaces of global fixed point solutions and, where applicable, of corresponding eigenoperator solutions. As a second result, it is then shown that one incarnation of the single field f(R) approximation actually breaks down in the sense that there is no physical content left to explore. In order to clarify whether such drastic findings can be caused by the approximations used in setting up the renormalisation group flow, we identify the single field approximation as a prime candidate and show in the mo...
Lectures on renormalization and asymptotic safety
Nagy, Sandor
2012-01-01
A short introduction is given on the functional renormalization group method, putting emphasis on its nonperturbative aspects. The method enables to find nontrivial fixed points in quantum field theoretic models which make them free from divergences and leads to the concept of asymptotic safety. It can be considered as a generalization of the asymptotic freedom which plays a key role in the perturbative renormalization. We summarize and give a short discussion of some important models, which are asymptotically safe such as the Gross-Neveu model, the nonlinear $\\sigma$ model, the sine-Gordon model, and the model of quantum Einstein gravity. We also give a detailed analysis of infrared behavior of the models where a spontaneous symmetry breaking takes place. The deep infrared behavior of the broken phase cannot be treated within the framework of perturbative calculations. We demonstrate that there exists an infrared fixed point in the broken phase which creates a new scaling regime there, however its structure ...
The optimal homotopy asymptotic method engineering applications
Marinca, Vasile
2015-01-01
This book emphasizes in detail the applicability of the Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method to various engineering problems. It is a continuation of the book “Nonlinear Dynamical Systems in Engineering: Some Approximate Approaches”, published at Springer in 2011, and it contains a great amount of practical models from various fields of engineering such as classical and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, nonlinear oscillations, electrical machines, and so on. The main structure of the book consists of 5 chapters. The first chapter is introductory while the second chapter is devoted to a short history of the development of homotopy methods, including the basic ideas of the Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method. The last three chapters, from Chapter 3 to Chapter 5, are introducing three distinct alternatives of the Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method with illustrative applications to nonlinear dynamical systems. The third chapter deals with the first alternative of our approach with two iterations. Five application...

This paper deals with the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of linear initial boundary value problems with constant coefficients on the half-line and on finite intervals. We assume that the boundary data are periodic in time and we investigate whether the solution becomes time-periodic after sufficiently long time. Using Fokas\\' transformation method, we show that, for the linear Schrödinger equation, the linear heat equation and the linearized KdV equation on the half-line, the solutions indeed become periodic for large time. However, for the same linear Schrödinger equation on a finite interval, we show that the solution, in general, is not asymptotically periodic; actually, the asymptotic behaviour of the solution depends on the commensurability of the time period T of the boundary data with the square of the length of the interval over. © 2009 The Royal Society.
Statistical tests of nonparametric hypotheses asymptotic theory
Pons, Odile
2013-01-01
An overview of the asymptotic theory of optimal nonparametric tests is presented in this book. It covers a wide range of topics: Neyman-Pearson and LeCam's theories of optimal tests, the theories of empirical processes and kernel estimators with extensions of their applications to the asymptotic behavior of tests for distribution functions, densities and curves of the nonparametric models defining the distributions of point processes and diffusions. With many new test statistics developed for smooth curves, the reliance on kernel estimators with bias corrections and the weak convergence of the
Asymptotic Regime in N Random Interacting Species
Fiasconaro, A; Valenti, D
2005-01-01
The asymptotic regime of a complex ecosystem with N random interacting species and in the presence of an external multiplicative noise is analyzed. We find the role of the external noise on the long time probability distribution of the i_th density species, the extinction of species and the local field acting on the i_th population. We analyze in detail the transient dynamics of this field and the cavity field, which is the field acting on the i_th species when this is absent. We find that the presence or the absence of some population give different asymptotic distributions of these fields.
Asymptotic Redundancies for Universal Quantum Coding
Krattenthaler, C; Krattenthaler, Christian; Slater, Paul
1996-01-01
We investigate the question of whether or not there exists a noncommutative/ quantum extension of a recent (commutative probabilistic) result of Clarke and Barron. They demonstrated that the Jeffreys' invariant prior of Bayesian theory yields the common asymptotic (minimax and maximin) redundancy - the excess of the encoding cost over the source entropy - of universal data compression in a parametric setting. We study certain probability distributions for the two-level quantum systems. We are able to compute exact formulas for the corresponding redundancies, for which we find the asymptotic limits. These results are very suggestive and do indeed point towards a possible quantum extension of the result of Clarke and Barron.
Asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds with small mass
Dahl, Mattias; Sakovich, Anna
2014-01-01
For asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds of dimension $n$ with scalar curvature at least equal to $-n(n-1)$ the conjectured positive mass theorem states that the mass is non-negative, and vanishes only if the manifold is isometric to hyperbolic space. In this paper we study asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds which are also conformally hyperbolic outside a ball of fixed radius, and for which the positive mass theorem holds. For such manifolds we show that the conformal factor tends to one as the mass tends to zero.
Extended asymptotic theory of unstable resonator modes.
Li, Y Q; Sung, C C
1990-10-20
The modes in an unstable resonator can be computed within the limit of a large Fresnel number using the asymptotic expansion of the diffraction integral, as shown by Horwitz, Butts, and Avizonis. The expansion is not valid for the points of interest around or beyond the shadow boundary of the output light. We use a better numerical representation, which extends the regions of use. The comparison of several cases with earlier work shows that the asymptotic theory can be successfully applied for all parameters without restrictions. PMID:20577410

Full Text Available We consider the approximate solution of the coupled Schrödinger-KdV equation by using the extended optimal homotopy asymptotic method (OHAM. We obtained the extended OHAM solution of the problem and compared with the exact, variational iteration method (VIM and homotopy perturbation method (HPM solutions. The obtained solution shows that extended OHAM is effective, simpler, easier, and explicit and gives a suitable way to control the convergence of the approximate solution.

Structural-acoustic waveguides of two different geometries are considered: a 2-D rectangular and a circular cylindrical geometry. The objective is to obtain asymptotic expansions of the fluid-structure coupled wavenumbers. The required asymptotic parameters are derived in a systematic way, in contrast to the usual intuitive methods used in such problems. The systematic way involves analyzing the phase change of a wave incident on a single boundary of the waveguide. Then, the coupled wavenumber expansions are derived using these asymptotic parameters. The phase change is also used to qualitatively demarcate the dispersion diagram as dominantly structure-originated, fluid-originated or fully coupled. In contrast to intuitively obtained asymptotic parameters, this approach does not involve any restriction on the material and geometry of the structure. The derived closed-form solutions are compared with the numerical solutions and a good match is obtained.

Small time asymptotics of Ornstein-Uhlenbeck densities in Hilbert spaces

We show that Varadhan's small time asymptotics for densities of the solution of a stochastic differential equation in $\\mathbb{R}^n$ carries over to a Hilbert space-valued Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process whose transition semigroup is strongly Feller and symmetric. In the Hilbert space setting, densities are with respect to a Gaussian invariant measure.

The isotropy of the universal 3K background radiation is discussed and a superunified field theory incorporating gravity and possessing asymptotic freedom is suggested to provide a solution to the problem. Thermal equilibrium is established in this context through interactions occurring in a temporally indefinite preplanckian era.

Full Text Available We introduce the general iterative methods for finding a common fixed point of asymptotically nonexpansive semigroups which is a unique solution of some variational inequalities.

This paper concerns the large time behavior toward planar rarefaction waves of solutions for the relaxation approximation of conservation laws in several dimensions. It is shown that a planar rarefaction wave is nonlinear stable in the sense that it is an asymptotic attractor for the relaxation approximation of conservation laws.
Asymptotic Behavior of a Competition-Diffusion System with Variable Coefficients and Time Delays
Miguel Uh Zapata; Eric Avila Vales; Angel G. Estrella
2008-01-01
A class of time-delay reaction-diffusion systems with variable coefficients which arise from the model of two competing ecological species is discussed. An asymptotic global attractor is established in terms of the variable coefficients, independent of the time delays and the effect of diffusion by the upper-lower solutions and iteration method.
Scalar hair on the black hole in asymptotically anti--de Sitter spacetime
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
We examine the no-hair conjecture in asymptotically anti--de Sitter (AdS) spacetime. First, we consider a real scalar field as the matter field and assume static spherically symmetric spacetime. Analysis of the asymptotics shows that the scalar field must approach the extremum of its potential. Using this fact, it is proved that there is no regular black hole solution when the scalar field is massless or has a 'convex' potential. Surprisingly, while the scalar field has a growing mode around the local minimum of the potential, there is no growing mode around the local maximum. This implies that the local maximum is a kind of 'attractor' of the asymptotic scalar field. We give two examples of the new black hole solutions with a nontrivial scalar field configuration numerically in the symmetric or asymmetric double well potential models. We study the stability of these solutions by using the linear perturbation method in order to examine whether or not the scalar hair is physical. In the symmetric double well potential model, we find that the potential function of the perturbation equation is positive semidefinite in some wide parameter range and that the new solution is stable. This implies that the black hole no-hair conjecture is violated in asymptotically AdS spacetime

Relativistic Stars in Starobinsky gravity matched asymptotic expansion
Arapoğlu, Savaş; Ekşi, K Yavuz
2016-01-01
We study the structure of relativistic stars in $\\mathcal{R}+\\alpha \\mathcal{R}^{2}$ theory using the method of matched asymptotic expansion to handle the higher order derivatives in field equations arising from the higher order curvature term. We find solutions, parametrized by $\\alpha$, for uniform density stars matching to the Schwarzschild solution outside the star. We obtain the mass-radius relations and study the dependence of maximum mass on $\\alpha$. We find that $M_{\\max} \\propto \\alpha^{-3/2}$ for values of $\\alpha$ larger than $10~{\\rm km^2}$. For each $\\alpha$ the maximum mass configuration has the biggest compactness parameter ($\\eta = GM/Rc^2$) and we argue that the general relativistic stellar configuration corresponding to $\\alpha=0$ is the most compact among these.
Spinning, Precessing, Black Hole Binary Spacetime via Asymptotic Matching
Nakano, Hiroyuki; Campanelli, Manuela; West, Eric J
2016-01-01
We briefly discuss a method to construct a global, analytic, approximate spacetime for precessing, spinning binary black holes. The spacetime construction is broken into three parts: the inner zones are the spacetimes close to each black hole, and are approximated by perturbed Kerr solutions; the near zone is far from the two black holes, and described by the post-Newtonian metric; and finally the wave (far) zone, where retardation effects need to be taken into account, is well modeled by the post-Minkowskian metric. These individual spacetimes are then stitched together using asymptotic matching techniques to obtain a global solution that approximately satisfies the Einstein field equations. Precession effects are introduced by rotating the black hole spin direction according to the precessing equations of motion, in a way that is consistent with the global spacetime construction.
Caustics, counting maps and semi-classical asymptotics
Ercolani, N M
2009-01-01
This paper develops a deeper understanding of the structure and combinatorial significance of the partition function for Hermitean random matrices. The coefficients of the large N expansion of the logarithm of this partition function, also known as the genus expansion, (and its derivatives) are generating functions for a variety of graphical enumeration problems. The main results are to prove that these generating functions are in fact specific rational functions of a distinguished irrational (algebraic) function of the generating function parameters. This distinguished function is itself the generating function for the Catalan numbers (or generalized Catalan numbers, depending on the choice of parameter). It is also a solution of the inviscid Burgers equation for certain initial data. The shock formation, or caustic, of the Burgers characteristic solution is directly related to the poles of the rational forms of the generating functions. These results in turn provide new information about the asymptotics of ...
On the asymptotic stability in the energy space for multi-solitons of the Landau-Lifshitz equation
Bahri, Yakine
2016-01-01
We establish the asymptotic stability of multi-solitons for the one-dimensional Landau-Lifshitz equation with an easy-plane anisotropy. The solitons have non-zero speed, are ordered according to their speeds and have sufficiently separated initial positions. We provide the asymptotic stability around solitons and between solitons. More precisely, we show that for an initial datum close to a sum of $N$ dark solitons, the corresponding solution converges weakly to one of the solitons in the sum...
Long-time asymptotics of the periodic Toda lattice under short-range perturbations
Kamvissis, Spyridon; Teschl, Gerald
2012-07-01
We compute the long-time asymptotics of periodic (and slightly more generally of algebro-geometric finite-gap) solutions of the doubly infinite Toda lattice under a short-range perturbation. In particular, we prove that the perturbed lattice asymptotically approaches a modulated lattice. More precisely, let g be the genus of the hyperelliptic curve associated with the unperturbed solution. We show that, apart from the phenomenon of solitons travelling in a quasi-periodic background, the n/t-pane contains g + 2 areas where the perturbed solution is close to a finite-gap solution on the same isospectral torus. In between there are g + 1 regions where the perturbed solution is asymptotically close to a modulated lattice which undergoes a continuous phase transition (in the Jacobian variety) and which interpolates between these isospectral solutions. In the special case of the free lattice (g = 0), the isospectral torus consists of just one point and we recover the known result. Both the solutions in the isospectral torus and the phase transition are explicitly characterized in terms of Abelian integrals on the underlying hyperelliptic curve. Our method relies on the equivalence of the inverse spectral problem to a vector Riemann-Hilbert problem defined on the hyperelliptic curve and generalizes the so-called nonlinear stationary phase/steepest descent method for Riemann-Hilbert problem deformations to Riemann surfaces.

Asymptotic evolution of quantum Markov chains
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
The iterated quantum operations, so called quantum Markov chains, play an important role in various branches of physics. They constitute basis for many discrete models capable to explore fundamental physical problems, such as the approach to thermal equilibrium, or the asymptotic dynamics of macroscopic physical systems far from thermal equilibrium. On the other hand, in the more applied area of quantum technology they also describe general characteristic properties of quantum networks or they can describe different quantum protocols in the presence of decoherence. A particularly, an interesting aspect of these quantum Markov chains is their asymptotic dynamics and its characteristic features. We demonstrate there is always a vector subspace (typically low-dimensional) of so-called attractors on which the resulting superoperator governing the iterative time evolution of quantum states can be diagonalized and in which the asymptotic quantum dynamics takes place. As the main result interesting algebraic relations are presented for this set of attractors which allow to specify their dual basis and to determine them in a convenient way. Based on this general theory we show some generalizations concerning the theory of fixed points or asymptotic evolution of random quantum operations.
Asymptotic structure in substitution tiling spaces
Barge, Marcy
2011-01-01
Every sufficiently regular space of tilings of $\\R^d$ has at least one pair of distinct tilings that are asymptotic under translation in all the directions of some open $(d-1)$-dimensional hemisphere. If the tiling space comes from a substitution, there is a way of defining a location on such tilings at which asymptoticity `starts'. This leads to the definition of the {\\em branch locus} of the tiling space: this is a subspace of the tiling space, of dimension at most $d-1$, that summarizes the `asymptotic in at least a half-space' behavior in the tiling space. We prove that if a $d$-dimensional self-similar substitution tiling space has a pair of distinct tilings that are asymptotic in a set of directions that contains a closed $(d-1)$-hemisphere in its interior, then the branch locus is a topological invariant of the tiling space. If the tiling space is a 2-dimensional self-similar Pisot substitution tiling space, the branch locus has a description as an inverse limit of an expanding Markov map on a 1-dimens...
Contraints on Matter from Asymptotic Safety
Percacci, Roberto; Perini, Daniele
2002-01-01
Recent studies of the ultraviolet behaviour of pure gravity suggest that it admits a non-Gaussian attractive fixed point, and therefore that the theory is asymptotically safe. We consider the effect on this fixed point of massless minimally coupled matter fields. The existence of a UV attractive fixed point puts bounds on the type and number of such fields.

In the non-lattice case it is shown that the bootstrap approximation of the distribution of the standardized sample mean is asymptotically more accurate than approximation by the limiting normal distribution. The exact convergence rate of the bootstrap approximation of the distributions of sample quantiles is obtained. A few other convergence rates regarding the bootstrap method are also studied.

A short introduction is given on the functional renormalization group method, putting emphasis on its nonperturbative aspects. The method enables to find nontrivial fixed points in quantum field theoretic models which make them free from divergences and leads to the concept of asymptotic safety. It can be considered as a generalization of the asymptotic freedom which plays a key role in the perturbative renormalization. We summarize and give a short discussion of some important models, which are asymptotically safe such as the Gross–Neveu model, the nonlinear σ model, the sine–Gordon model, and we consider the model of quantum Einstein gravity which seems to show asymptotic safety, too. We also give a detailed analysis of infrared behavior of such scalar models where a spontaneous symmetry breaking takes place. The deep infrared behavior of the broken phase cannot be treated within the framework of perturbative calculations. We demonstrate that there exists an infrared fixed point in the broken phase which creates a new scaling regime there, however its structure is hidden by the singularity of the renormalization group equations. The theory spaces of these models show several similar properties, namely the models have the same phase and fixed point structure. The quantum Einstein gravity also exhibits similarities when considering the global aspects of its theory space since the appearing two phases there show analogies with the symmetric and the broken phases of the scalar models. These results be nicely uncovered by the functional renormalization group method
Asymptotic quantum cloning is state estimation
Bae, Joonwoo; Acin, Antonio
2006-01-01
The impossibility of perfect cloning and state estimation are two fundamental results in Quantum Mechanics. It has been conjectured that quantum cloning becomes equivalent to state estimation in the asymptotic regime where the number of clones tends to infinity. We prove this conjecture using two known results of Quantum Information Theory: the monogamy of quantum correlations and the properties of entanglement breaking channels.
Asymptotic probability density functions in turbulence
Minotti, F. O.; Speranza, E.
2007-01-01
A formalism is presented to obtain closed evolution equations for asymptotic probability distribution functions of turbulence magnitudes. The formalism is derived for a generic evolution equation, so that the final result can be easily applied to rather general problems. Although the approximation involved cannot be ascertained a priori, we show that application of the formalism to well known problems gives the correct results.

Heavy axion in asymptotically safe QCD
Kobakhidze, Archil

Assuming QCD exhibits an interacting fixed-point behaviour in the ultraviolet regime, I argue that the axion can be substantially heavier than in the conventional case of asymptotically free QCD due to the enhanced contribution of small size instantons to its mass.
Duality-based Asymptotic-Preserving method for highly anisotropic diffusion equations
Degond, Pierre; Lozinski, Alexei; Narski, Jacek; Negulescu, Claudia
2010-01-01
The present paper introduces an efficient and accurate numerical scheme for the solution of a highly anisotropic elliptic equation, the anisotropy direction being given by a variable vector field. This scheme is based on an asymptotic preserving reformulation of the original system, permitting an accurate resolution independently of the anisotropy strength and without the need of a mesh adapted to this anisotropy. The counterpart of this original procedure is the larger system size, enlarged by adding auxiliary variables and Lagrange multipliers. This Asymptotic-Preserving method generalizes the method investigated in a previous paper [arXiv:0903.4984v2] to the case of an arbitrary anisotropy direction field.
Higher Spin Black Holes in Three Dimensions: Comments on Asymptotics and Regularity
Banados, M; Theisen, S
2016-01-01
In the context of (2+1)--dimensional SL(N,R)\\times SL(N,R) Chern-Simons theory we explore issues related to regularity and asymptotics on the solid torus, for stationary and circularly symmetric solutions. We display and solve all necessary conditions to ensure a regular metric and metric-like higher spin fields. We prove that holonomy conditions are necessary but not sufficient conditions to ensure regularity, and that Hawking conditions do not necessarily follow from them. Finally we give a general proof that once the chemical potentials are turn on -- as demanded by regularity -- the asymptotics cannot be that of Brown-Henneaux.
The Second Painlev\\'e Equation in the Large-Parameter Limit I: Local Asymptotic Analysis

In this paper, we find all possible asymptotic behaviours of the solutions of the second Painlev\\'e equation $y''=2y^3+xy +\\alpha$ as the parameter $\\alpha\\to\\infty$ in the local region $x\\ll\\alpha^{2/3}$. We prove that these are asymptotic behaviours by finding explicit error bounds. Moreover, we show that they are connected and complete in the sense that they correspond to all possible values of initial data given at a point in the local region.

We prove that holonomy conditions are necessary but not sufficient conditions to ensure regularity, and that Hawking conditions do not necessarily follow from them. Finally we give a general proof that once the chemical potentials are turned on—as demanded by regularity—the asymptotics cannot be that of Brown-Henneaux.

A delayed n-species nonautonomous Lotka-Volterra type competitive systemwithout dominating instantaneous negative feedback is investigated. By means of a suitableLyapunov functional, sufficient conditions are derived for the global asymptotic stability ofthe positive solutions of the system. As a corollary, it is shown that the global asymptoticstability of the positive solution is maintained provided that the delayed negative feedbacksdominate other interspecific interaction effects with delays and the delays are sufficientlysmall.
Asymptotic stability of rarefaction waves for 2 ∗ 2 viscous hyperbolic conservation laws
Xin, Zhouping
This paper concerns the asymptotic behavior toward rarefaction waves of the solution of a general 2 × 2 hyperbolic conservation laws with positive viscosity. We prove that if the initial data is close to a constant state and its values at ±∞ lie on the kth rarefaction curve for the corresponding hyperbolic conservation laws, then the solution tends as t → ∞ to the rarefaction wave determined by these states.
Asymptotic stability of traveling waves for viscous conservation laws with dispersion
Pan, Jun; Warnecke, Gerald
2004-01-01
This work is concerned with the asymptotic stability of traveling waves for scalar viscous conservation laws with a convex flux function and a dispersion term. First we prove the existence of solutions locally in time of the initial-value problem for initial data near a constant solution by Fourier analysis. Using the semigroup method the local existence for initial data that are an $L^2$ perturbation of a traveling-wave profile is proved. We also obtain a regularity property o...
The energy decay and asymptotics for a class of semilinear wave equations in two space dimensions
Katayama, Soichiro; Sunagawa, Hideaki
2011-01-01
We consider semilinear wave equations with small initial data in two space dimensions. For a class of wave equations with cubic nonlinearity, we show the global existence of small amplitude solutions, and give an asymptotic description of the solution as $t \\to \\infty$ uniformly in $x \\in {\\mathbb R}^2$. In particular, our result implies the decay of the energy when the nonlinearity is dissipative.

In this paper we consider a multi-dimensional wave equation with dynamic boundary conditions, related to the KelvinVoigt damping. Global existence and asymptotic stability of solutions starting in a stable set are proved. Blow up for solutions of the problem with linear dynamic boundary conditions with initial data in the unstable set is also obtained. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
The renormalization method based on the Taylor expansion and applications for asymptotic analysis
Liu, Cheng-shi
2016-01-01
Based on the Taylor expansion, we propose a renormalization method for asymptotic analysis. The standard renormalization group (RG) method for asymptotic analysis can be derived out from this new method, and hence the mathematical essence of the RG method is also recovered. The biggest advantage of the proposed method is that the secular terms in perturbation series are automatically eliminated, but in usual perturbation theory, we need more efforts and tricks to eliminate these terms. At the same time, the mathematical foundation of the method is simple and the logic of the method is very clear, therefore, it is very easy in practice. As application, we obtain the uniform valid asymptotic solutions to some problems including vector field, boundary layer and boundary value problems of nonlinear wave equations. Moreover, we discuss the normal form theory and reduction equations of dynamical systems. Furthermore, by combining the topological deformation and the RG method, a modified method namely the homotopy r...
Buoyancy-aided convection flow in a heated straight pipe: comparing different asymptotic models
Arfaoui, Walid; Safi, Mohamed Jomaa; Lagrée, Pierre-Yves
2016-08-01
A vertical straight circular adiabatic vertical long tube, open at its lower and upper ends, is heated at its base on a short portion. The flow is studied with the hypothesis of no pressure drop between the entrance and the exit. Direct resolution of Navier Stokes equations is done by finite volumes. The numerical solutions are then compared to a one dimensional model and to two asymptotic models. The first asymptotic model is inspired from boundary layer approximations whereas the second one is more a linear perturbation of the Navier Stokes Boussinesq equations. For moderate values of the Grashof number, pressure, starting from zero decreases over the heated part to a minimum and increases on the adiabatic tube to zero. For larger values of Grashof, a local maximum in pressure appears, this pressure hump may even be positive. The four model agree, for moderate Grashof. When increasing the Grashof, only the two asymptotic models recover the behavior obtained from the numerical simulations.
Nonlinear mechanics of thin-walled structures asymptotics, direct approach and numerical analysis
Vetyukov, Yury
2014-01-01
This book presents a hybrid approach to the mechanics of thin bodies. Classical theories of rods, plates and shells with constrained shear are based on asymptotic splitting of the equations and boundary conditions of three-dimensional elasticity. The asymptotic solutions become accurate as the thickness decreases, and the three-dimensional fields of stresses and displacements can be determined. The analysis includes practically important effects of electromechanical coupling and material inhomogeneity. The extension to the geometrically nonlinear range uses the direct approach based on the principle of virtual work. Vibrations and buckling of pre-stressed structures are studied with the help of linearized incremental formulations, and direct tensor calculus rounds out the list of analytical techniques used throughout the book. A novel theory of thin-walled rods of open profile is subsequently developed from the models of rods and shells, and traditionally applied equations are proven to be asymptotically exa...

The theory of massive gravity proposed by Bergshoeff, Hohm and Townsend is considered in the special case of the pure irreducibly fourth-order quadratic Lagrangian. It is shown that the asymptotically locally flat black holes of this theory can be consistently deformed to "black flowers" that are no longer spherically symmetric. Moreover, we construct radiating spacetimes settling down to these black flowers in the far future. The generic case can be shown to fit within a relaxed set of asymptotic conditions as compared to the ones of general relativity at null infinity, while the asymptotic symmetries remain the same. Conserved charges as surface integrals at null infinity are constructed following a covariant approach, and their algebra represents BMS3 , but without central extensions. For solutions possessing an event horizon, we derive the first law of thermodynamics from these surface integrals.

This paper considers the asymptotic stability analysis of both exact and numericalsolutions of the following neutral delay differential equation with pantograph delay.{x′(t)+Bx(t)+Cx′(qt)+Dx(qt)=0, t>0,x(0)=x0,where B, C, D ∈ Cd×d, q ∈ (0, 1), and B is regular. After transforming the above equation to non-automatic neutral equation with constant delay, we determine sufficient conditions for the asymptotic stability of the zero solution. Furthermore, we focus on the asymptotic stability behavior of Runge-Kutta method with variable stepsize. It is proved that a Lstable Runge-Kutta method can preserve the above-mentioned stability properties.

Ultraviolet asymptotics and singular dynamics of AdS perturbations
Craps, Ben; Vanhoof, Joris
2015-01-01
Important insights into the dynamics of spherically symmetric AdS-scalar field perturbations can be obtained by considering a simplified time-averaged theory accurately describing perturbations of amplitude epsilon on time-scales of order 1/epsilon^2. The coefficients of the time-averaged equations are complicated expressions in terms of the AdS scalar field mode functions, which are in turn related to the Jacobi polynomials. We analyze the behavior of these coefficients for high frequency modes. The resulting asymptotics can be useful for understanding the properties of the finite-time singularity in solutions of the time-averaged theory recently reported in the literature. We highlight, in particular, the gauge dependence of this asymptotics, with respect to the two most commonly used gauges. The harsher growth of the coefficients at large frequencies in higher-dimensional AdS suggests strengthening of turbulent instabilities in higher dimensions. In the course of our derivations, we arrive at recursive rel...
Asymptotic modelling of a thermopiezoelastic anisotropic smart plate
Long, Yufei
Motivated by the requirement of modelling for space flexible reflectors as well as other applications of plate structures in engineering, a general anisotropic laminated thin plate model and a monoclinic Reissner-Mindlin plate model with thermal deformation, two-way coupled piezoelectric effect and pyroelectric effect is constructed using the variational asymptotic method, without any ad hoc assumptions. Total potential energy contains strain energy, electric potential energy and energy caused by temperature change. Three-dimensional strain field is built based on the concept of warping function and decomposition of the rotation tensor. The feature of small thickness and large in-plane dimension of plate structure helped to asymptotically simplify the three-dimensional analysis to a two-dimensional analysis on the reference surface and a one-dimensional analysis through the thickness. For the zeroth-order approximation, the asymptotically correct expression of energy is derived into the form of energetic equation in classical laminated plate theory, which will be enough to predict the behavior of plate structures as thin as a space flexible reflector. A through-the-thickness strain field can be expressed in terms of material constants and two-dimensional membrane and bending strains, while the transverse normal and shear stresses are not predictable yet. In the first-order approximation, the warping functions are further disturbed into a high order and an asymptotically correct energy expression with derivatives of the two-dimensional strains is acquired. For the convenience of practical use, the expression is transformed into a Reissner-Mindlin form with optimization implemented to minimize the error. Transverse stresses and strains are recovered using the in-plane strain variables. Several numerical examples of different laminations and shapes are studied with the help of analytical solutions or shell elements in finite element codes. The constitutive relation is
Nonperturbative tests for asymptotic freedom in the PT-symmetric (-φ4)3+1 theory
International Nuclear Information System (INIS)
In the literature, the asymptotic freedom property of the (-φ4) theory is always concluded from real-line calculations while the theory is known to be a non-real-line one. In this article, we test the existence of the asymptotic freedom in the (-φ4)3+1 theory using the mean field approach. In this approach and contrary to the original Hamiltonian, the obtained effective Hamiltonian is rather a real-line one. Accordingly, this work resembles the first reasonable analysis for the existence of the asymptotic freedom property in the PT-symmetric (-φ4) theory. In this respect, we calculated three different amplitudes of different positive dimensions (in mass units) and find that all of them go to very small values at high energy scales (small coupling) in agreement with the spirit of the asymptotic freedom property of the theory. To test the validity of our calculations, we obtained the asymptotic behavior of the vacuum condensate in terms of the coupling, analytically, and found that the controlling factor Λ has the value ((4π)2/6)=26.319 compared to the result Λ=26.3209 from the literature, which was obtained via numerical predictions. We assert that the nonblowup of the massive quantities at high energy scales predicted in this work strongly suggests the possibility of the solution of the famous hierarchy puzzle in a standard model with the PT-symmetric Higgs mechanism.

We investigate the global existence and asymptotic behavior of classical solutions for the 3D compressible non-isentropic damped Euler equations on a periodic domain. The global existence and uniqueness of classical solutions are obtained when the initial data is near an equilibrium. Furthermore, the exponential convergence rates of the pressure and velocity are also proved by delicate energy methods.
Weak Gibbs measures as Gibbs measures for asymptotically additive sequences
Iommi, Godofredo; Yayama, Yuki
2015-01-01
In this note we prove that every weak Gibbs measure for an asymptotically additive sequences is a Gibbs measure for another asymptotically additive sequence. In particular, a weak Gibbs measure for a continuous potential is a Gibbs measure for an asymptotically additive sequence. This allows, for example, to apply recent results on dimension theory of asymptotically additive sequences to study multifractal analysis for weak Gibbs measure for continuous potentials.
