    OpenAIRE

    Haydon, Richard

    2006-01-01

    It is shown that a Banach space with locally uniformly convex dual admits an equivalent norm which is itself locally uniformly convex. It follows that on any such space all continuous real-valued functions may be uniformly approximated by C^1 functions.

    Kopecká, Eva; Reich, Simeon

    2010-01-01

    A zone diagram is a relatively new concept which has emerged in computational geometry and is related to Voronoi diagrams. Formally, it is a fixed point of a certain mapping, and neither its uniqueness nor its existence are obvious in advance. It has been studied by several authors, starting with T. Asano, J. Matousek and T. Tokuyama, who considered the Euclidean plane with singleton sites, and proved the existence and uniqueness of zone diagrams there. In the present paper we prove the existence of zone diagrams with respect to finitely many pairwise disjoint compact sites contained in a compact and convex subset of a uniformly convex normed space. The proof is based on the Schauder fixed point theorem, the Curtis-Schori theorem regarding the Hilbert cube, and on recent results concerning the characterization of Voronoi cells as a collection of line segments and their geometric stability with respect to small changes of the corresponding sites. Along the way we obtain the continuity of the Dom mapping as wel...

    OpenAIRE

    Kell Martin

    2014-01-01

    In this paper the theory of uniformly convex metric spaces is developed. These spaces exhibit a generalized convexity of the metric from a fixed point. Using a (nearly) uniform convexity property a simple proof of reflexivity is presented and a weak topology of such spaces is analyzed. This topology called co-convex topology agrees with the usualy weak topology in Banach spaces. An example of a $CAT(0)$-spaces with weak topology which is not Hausdorff is given. This answers questions raised b...

  9. A class of free locally convex spaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sipacheva, O. V.

    2003-04-01

    Stratifiable spaces are a natural generalization of metrizable spaces for which Dugundji's theorem holds. It is proved that the free locally convex space of a stratifiable space is stratifiable. This means, in particular, that the space of finitely supported probability measures on a stratifiable space is a retract of a locally convex space, and that each stratifiable convex subset of a locally convex space is a retract of a locally convex space.

  10. Uniformly convex-transitive function spaces

    OpenAIRE

    Rambla-Barreno, Fernando; Talponen, Jarno

    2009-01-01

    We introduce a property of Banach spaces called uniform convex-transitivity, which falls between almost transitivity and convex-transitivity. We will provide examples of uniformly convex-transitive spaces. This property behaves nicely in connection with some Banach-valued function spaces. As a consequence, we obtain new examples of convex-transitive Banach spaces.

    Full Text Available The concepts of complex extreme points, complex strongly extreme points, complex strict convexity, and complex midpoint locally uniform convexity in general modular spaces are introduced. Then we prove that, for any Orlicz modular sequence space lΦ,ρ, lΦ,ρ is complex midpoint locally uniformly convex. As a corollary, lΦ,ρ is also complex strictly convex.

  12. Compactly convex sets in linear topological spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Banakh, T; Ravsky, O

    2012-01-01

    A convex subset X of a linear topological space is called compactly convex if there is a continuous compact-valued map $\\Phi:X\\to exp(X)$ such that $[x,y]\\subset\\Phi(x)\\cup \\Phi(y)$ for all $x,y\\in X$. We prove that each convex subset of the plane is compactly convex. On the other hand, the space $R^3$ contains a convex set that is not compactly convex. Each compactly convex subset $X$ of a linear topological space $L$ has locally compact closure $\\bar X$ which is metrizable if and only if each compact subset of $X$ is metrizable.

    This book is a systematic treatment of barrelled spaces, and of structures in which barrelledness conditions are significant. It is a fairly self-contained study of the structural theory of those spaces, concentrating on the basic phenomena in the theory, and presenting a variety of functional-analytic techniques.Beginning with some basic and important results in different branches of Analysis, the volume deals with Baire spaces, presents a variety of techniques, and gives the necessary definitions, exploring conditions on discs to ensure that they are absorbed by the barrels of the sp

    2005-01-01

    This paper presents a type of variational principles for real valued w* lower semicon tinuous functions on certain subsets in duals of locally convex spaces, and resolve a problem concerning differentiability of convex functions on general Banach spaces. They are done through discussing differentiability of convex functions on nonlinear topological spaces and convexification of nonconvex functions on topological linear spaces.

  18. Deformation in locally convex topological linear spaces

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    DING; Yanheng

    2004-01-01

    We are concerned with a deformation theory in locally convex topological linear spaces. A special "nice" partition of unity is given. This enables us to construct certain vector fields which are locally Lipschitz continuous with respect to the locally convex topology. The existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of flows associated to the vector fields are established. Deformations related to strongly indefinite functionals are then obtained. Finally, as applications, we prove some abstract critical point theorems.

    2007-11-01

    In this paper, we give a characteristic of abstract convexity structures on topological spaces with selection property. We show that if a convexity structure defined on a topological space has the weak selection property then satisfies H0-condition. Moreover, in a compact convex subset of a topological space with convexity structure, the weak selection property implies the fixed point property.

    The purpose of this note is to present two elementary, but useful, facts concerning actions on uniformly convex spaces. We demonstrate how each of them can be used in an alternative proof of the triviality of the first $L_p$-cohomology of higher rank simple Lie groups, proved in [BFGM].

    A locally convex space is said to be a Gateaux differentiability space (GDS)provided every continuous convex function defined on a nonempty convex open subset D of the space is densely Gateaux differentiable in D.This paper shows that the product of a GDS and a family of separable Frechet spaces is a GDS,and that the product of a GDS and an arbitrary locally convex space endowed with the weak topology is a GDS.

    Saejung, Satit

    2008-08-01

    We prove that F-convexity, the property dual to P-convexity of Kottman, implies uniform normal structure. Moreover, in the presence of the WORTH property, normal structure follows from a weaker convexity condition than F-convexity. The latter result improves the known fact that every uniformly nonsquare space with the WORTH property has normal structure.

    We discuss a new class of Banach spaces which are the generalization of uniformly extremely convex spaces introduced by Wulede and Ha. We prove that the new class of Banach spaces lies strictly between either the classes of k-uniformly rotund spaces and k-strongly convex spaces or classes of fully k-convex spaces and k-strongly convex spaces and has no inclusive relation with the class of locally k-uniformly convex spaces. We obtain in addition some characterizations and properties of this ne...

  6. Measuring Voting Power in Convex Policy Spaces

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sascha Kurz

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available Classical power index analysis considers the individual’s ability to influence the aggregated group decision by changing its own vote, where all decisions and votes are assumed to be binary. In many practical applications we have more options than either “yes” or “no”. Here we generalize three important power indices to continuous convex policy spaces. This allows the analysis of a collection of economic problems like, e.g., tax rates or spending that otherwise would not be covered in binary models.

    All the existing books in Infinite Dimensional Complex Analysis focus on the problems of locally convex spaces. However, the theory without convexity condition is covered for the first time in this book. This shows that we are really working with a new, important and interesting field. Theory of functions and nonlinear analysis problems are widespread in the mathematical modeling of real world systems in a very broad range of applications. During the past three decades many new results from the author have helped to solve multiextreme problems arising from important situations, non-convex and

    2013-01-01

    In this paper, we study the problem of finding the extremal element for a linear functional over a uniformly convex Banach space. We show that a unique extremal element exists and depends continuously on the linear functional, and vice versa. Using this, we simplify and clarify Ryabykh's proof that for any linear functional on a uniformly convex Bergman space with kernel in a certain Hardy space, the extremal functional belongs to the corresponding Hardy space.

    CERN Document Server

    Rataj, Jan

    2009-01-01

    If $X$ is a convex surface in a Euclidean space, then the squared (intrinsic) distance function $\\dist^2(x,y)$ is d.c. (DC, delta-convex) on $X\\times X$ in the only natural extrinsic sense. For the proof we use semiconcavity (in an intrinsic sense) of $\\dist^2(x,y)$ on $X \\times X$ if $X$ is an Alexandrov space with nonnegative curvature. Applications concerning $r$-boundaries (distance spheres) and the ambiguous locus (exoskeleton) of a closed subset of a convex surface are given.

  12. Convexity and the "Pythagorean" metric of space(-time)

    CERN Document Server

    Kalogeropoulos, Nikos

    2016-01-01

    We address the question about the reasons why the "Wick-rotated", positive-definite, space-time metric obeys the Pythagorean theorem. An answer is proposed based on the convexity and smoothness properties of the functional spaces providing the kinematic framework for the statistical or quantum treatments of gravity. We rely on particular moduli of convexity and smoothness which are extremized by Hilbert spaces. In the spirit of the variational principles employed in classical and quantum Physics, such Hilbert spaces dominate in a functional integral approach. The "Pythagorean" metric of space(-time) is then induced by such Hilbert spaces.

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available In this article, we formalize topological properties of real normed spaces. In the first part, open and closed, density, separability and sequence and its convergence are discussed. Then we argue properties of real normed subspace. Then we discuss linear functions between real normed speces. Several kinds of subspaces induced by linear functions such as kernel, image and inverse image are considered here. The fact that Lipschitz continuity operators preserve convergence of sequences is also refered here. Then we argue the condition when real normed subspaces become Banach’s spaces. We also formalize quotient vector space. In the last session, we argue the properties of the closure of real normed space. These formalizations are based on [19](p.3-41, [2] and [34](p.3-67.

    In general normed spaces,we consider a multiobjective piecewise linear optimization problem with the ordering cone being convex and having a nonempty interior.We establish that the weak Pareto optimal solution set of such a problem is the union of finitely many polyhedra and that this set is also arcwise connected under the cone convexity assumption of the objective function.Moreover,we provide necessary and suffcient conditions about the existence of weak(sharp) Pareto solutions.

  17. Airborne gravimetry data sparse reconstruction via L1-norm convex quadratic programming

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yang, Ya-Peng; Wu, Mei-Ping; Tang, Gang

    2015-06-01

    In practice, airborne gravimetry is a sub-Nyquist sampling method because of the restrictions imposed by national boundaries, financial cost, and database size. In this study, we analyze the sparsity of airborne gravimetry data by using the discrete Fourier transform and propose a reconstruction method based on the theory of compressed sensing for large-scale gravity anomaly data. Consequently, the reconstruction of the gravity anomaly data is transformed to a L1-norm convex quadratic programming problem. We combine the preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm (PCG) and the improved interior-point method (IPM) to solve the convex quadratic programming problem. Furthermore, a flight test was carried out with the homegrown strapdown airborne gravimeter SGA-WZ. Subsequently, we reconstructed the gravity anomaly data of the flight test, and then, we compared the proposed method with the linear interpolation method, which is commonly used in airborne gravimetry. The test results show that the PCG-IPM algorithm can be used to reconstruct large-scale gravity anomaly data with higher accuracy and more effectiveness than the linear interpolation method.

    Full Text Available We address the reasons why the “Wick-rotated”, positive-definite, space-time metric obeys the Pythagorean theorem. An answer is proposed based on the convexity and smoothness properties of the functional spaces purporting to provide the kinematic framework of approaches to quantum gravity. We employ moduli of convexity and smoothness which are eventually extremized by Hilbert spaces. We point out the potential physical significance that functional analytical dualities play in this framework. Following the spirit of the variational principles employed in classical and quantum Physics, such Hilbert spaces dominate in a generalized functional integral approach. The metric of space-time is induced by the inner product of such Hilbert spaces.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lu-Chuan Ceng

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available We introduce composite implicit and explicit iterative algorithms for solving a general system of variational inequalities and a common fixed point problem of an infinite family of nonexpansive mappings in a real smooth and uniformly convex Banach space. These composite iterative algorithms are based on Korpelevich's extragradient method and viscosity approximation method. We first consider and analyze a composite implicit iterative algorithm in the setting of uniformly convex and 2-uniformly smooth Banach space and then another composite explicit iterative algorithm in a uniformly convex Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Under suitable assumptions, we derive some strong convergence theorems. The results presented in this paper improve, extend, supplement, and develop the corresponding results announced in the earlier and very recent literatures.

    Full Text Available We study the existence of fixed points and convergence of iterates for asymptotic pointwise contractions in uniformly convex metric spaces. We also study the existence of fixed points for set-valued nonexpansive mappings in the same class of spaces. Our results do not assume convexity of the metric which makes a big difference when studying the existence of fixed points for set-valued mappings.

    This paper deals with the problems of best approximation in β-normed spaces.With the tool of conjugate cone introduced in [1] and via the Hahn-Banach extension theorem of β-subseminorm in [2],the characteristics that an element in a closed subspace is the best approximation are given in Section 2.It is obtained in Section 3 that all convex sets or subspaces of a β-normed space are semi-Chebyshev if and only if the space is itself strictly convex.The fact that every finite dimensional subspace of a strictly convex β-normed space must be Chebyshev is proved at last.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Skala, Vaclav

    2016-06-01

    There are many space subdivision and space partitioning techniques used in many algorithms to speed up computations. They mostly rely on orthogonal space subdivision, resp. using hierarchical data structures, e.g. BSP trees, quadtrees, octrees, kd-trees, bounding volume hierarchies etc. However in some applications a non-orthogonal space subdivision can offer new ways for actual speed up. In the case of convex polygon in E2 a simple Point-in-Polygon test is of the O(N) complexity and the optimal algorithm is of O(log N) computational complexity. In the E3 case, the complexity is O(N) even for the convex polyhedron as no ordering is defined. New Point-in-Convex Polygon and Point-in-Convex Polyhedron algorithms are presented based on space subdivision in the preprocessing stage resulting to O(1) run-time complexity. The presented approach is simple to implement. Due to the principle of duality, dual problems, e.g. line-convex polygon, line clipping, can be solved in a similarly.

  10. Differential calculus in normed linear spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Mukherjea, Kalyan

    2007-01-01

    This book presents Advanced Calculus from a geometric point of view: instead of dealing with partial derivatives of functions of several variables, the derivative of the function is treated as a linear transformation between normed linear spaces. Not only does this lead to a simplified and transparent exposition of "difficult" results like the Inverse and Implicit Function Theorems but also permits, without any extra effort, a discussion of the Differential Calculus of functions defined on infinite dimensional Hilbert or Banach spaces.The prerequisites demanded of the reader are modest: a sound understanding of convergence of sequences and series of real numbers, the continuity and differentiability properties of functions of a real variable and a little Linear Algebra should provide adequate background for understanding the book. The first two chapters cover much of the more advanced background material on Linear Algebra (like dual spaces, multilinear functions and tensor products.) Chapter 3 gives an ab ini...

  12. Convex analysis and monotone operator theory in Hilbert spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Bauschke, Heinz H

    2017-01-01

    This reference text, now in its second edition, offers a modern unifying presentation of three basic areas of nonlinear analysis: convex analysis, monotone operator theory, and the fixed point theory of nonexpansive operators. Taking a unique comprehensive approach, the theory is developed from the ground up, with the rich connections and interactions between the areas as the central focus, and it is illustrated by a large number of examples. The Hilbert space setting of the material offers a wide range of applications while avoiding the technical difficulties of general Banach spaces. The authors have also drawn upon recent advances and modern tools to simplify the proofs of key results making the book more accessible to a broader range of scholars and users. Combining a strong emphasis on applications with exceptionally lucid writing and an abundance of exercises, this text is of great value to a large audience including pure and applied mathematicians as well as researchers in engineering, data science, ma...

    Full Text Available In this paper we show the weak convergence and stability of the proximal point method when applied to the constrained convex optimization problem in uniformly convex and uniformly smooth Banach spaces. In addition, we establish a nonasymptotic estimate of convergence rate of the sequence of functional values for the unconstrained case. This estimate depends on a geometric characteristic of the dual Banach space, namely its modulus of convexity. We apply a new technique which includes Banach space geometry, estimates of duality mappings, nonstandard Lyapunov functionals and generalized projection operators in Banach spaces.

Then f is additive.

    The authors investigate the conditions for the botmdedness of Bergman type operators Pa,t in mixed norm space Lp,q(μ) on the unit ball of Cn (n ≥ 1), and obtain a sufficient conditionand a necessary condition for general normal function μ, and a sufficient and necessary condition for μ(r)=(1-r2)α logβ(2(1-r)-1)(α>0,β≥0), This generalizes the result of Forelli-Rudin[3] on Bergman operator in Bergman space. As applications,a more natural method is given to compute the duality of the mixed norm space,solve the Gleason's problem for mixed norm space and obtain the characterization of mixed norm space in terms of partial derivatives.Moreover,it is proved that f∈L(0) ∞,q(μ) for holomorphic function f,1≤q≤∞.

  5. A forward backward splitting algorithm for the minimization of non-smooth convex functionals in Banach space

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bredies, Kristian

    2009-01-01

    We consider the task of computing an approximate minimizer of the sum of a smooth and a non-smooth convex functional, respectively, in Banach space. Motivated by the classical forward-backward splitting method for the subgradients in Hilbert space, we propose a generalization which involves the iterative solution of simpler subproblems. Descent and convergence properties of this new algorithm are studied. Furthermore, the results are applied to the minimization of Tikhonov-functionals associated with linear inverse problems and semi-norm penalization in Banach spaces. With the help of Bregman-Taylor-distance estimates, rates of convergence for the forward-backward splitting procedure are obtained. Examples which demonstrate the applicability are given, in particular, a generalization of the iterative soft-thresholding method by Daubechies, Defrise and De Mol to Banach spaces as well as total-variation-based image restoration in higher dimensions are presented.

Moreover, integrated semigroups in such spaces are introduced and generation theorems and some basic properties for semigroups of this type are obtained. As examples, elliptic differential operators on certain classes of function spaces with locally convex topology are shown to be the generators of integrated semigroups under some conditions.

    We investigate the Fermat-Torricelli problem in d-dimensional real normed spaces or Minkowski spaces, mainly for d=2. Our approach is to study the Fermat-Torricelli locus in a geometric way. We present many new results, as well as give an exposition of known results that are scattered in various sources, with proofs for some of them. Together, these results can be considered to be a minitheory of the Fermat-Torricelli problem in Minkowski spaces and especially in Minkowski planes. This demonstrates that substantial results about locational problems valid for all norms can be found using a geometric approach.

Finally, we improve this method to find a measure satisfying some important properties in geometric measure theory.

    Full Text Available We study local uniform convexity and Kadec-Klee type properties in K-interpolation spaces of Lorentz couples. We show that a wide class of Banach couples of (commutative and non-commutative Lorentz spaces possess the (so-alled (DGL-property originally introduced by Davis, Ghoussoub and Lindenstrauss in the context of renorming order continuous Banach latties. This property is used as a key tool to show that local uniform convexity and certain Kadec-Klee type properties in non-commutative symmetric spaces of measurable operators may be inferred from corresponding properties of the parameter space of the K-interpolation method. Further applications are given to renorming properties of separable symmetric Banach function spaces and their non-commutative counterparts.

    A class of biholomorphic mappings named "quasi-convex mapping" is introduced in the unitball of a complex Banach space. It is proved that this class of mappings is a proper subset of the class ofstarlike mappings and contains the class of convex mappings properly, and it has the same growth and coveringtheorems as the convex mappings. Furthermore, when the Banach space is confined to Cn, the "quasi-convexmapping" is exactly the "quasi-convex mapping of type A" introduced by K. A. Roper and T. J. Suffridge.

    We prove three facts about intrinsic geometry of surfaces in a normed (Minkowski) space. When put together, these facts demonstrate a rather intriguing picture. We show that (1) geodesics on saddle surfaces (in a space of any dimension) behave as they are expected to: they have no conjugate points and thus minimize length in their homotopy class; (2) in contrast, every two-dimensional Finsler manifold can be locally embedded as a saddle surface in a 4-dimensional space; and (3) geodesics on c...

The study has also aimed to define the statistical Λ-convergence and statistical Λ-Cauchy in PN-spaces. The concepts of these approaches have been defined by some examples, which have demonstrated the concepts of statistical Λ-convergence and statistical Λ-Cauchy in PN-spaces.

    The notion of ideal convergence is a generalization of statistical convergence which has been intensively investigated in last few years.For an admissible ideal ∮ (∈) N × N,the aim of the present paper is to introduce the concepts of ∮-convergence and ∮*-convergence for double sequences on probabilistic normed spaces (PN spaces for short).We give some relations related to these notions and find condition on the ideal ∮ for which both the notions coincide.We also define ∮-Cauchy and ∮*-Cauchy double sequences on PN spaces and show that ∮-convergent double sequences are ∮-Cauchy on these spaces.We establish example which shows that our method of convergence for double sequences on PN spaces is more general.

  16. The free abelian topological group and the free locally convex space on the unit interval

    1992-01-01

    We give a complete description of the topological spaces $X$ such that the free abelian topological group $A(X)$ embeds into the free abelian topological group $A(I)$ of the closed unit interval. In particular, the free abelian topological group $A(X)$ of any finite-dimensional compact metrizable space $X$ embeds into $A(I)$. The situation turns out to be somewhat different for free locally convex spaces. Some results for the spaces of continuous functions with the pointwise topology are also obtained. Proofs are based on the classical Kolmogorov's Superposition Theorem.

  18. Maximum geometrical hindrance to diffusion in brain extracellular space surrounding uniformly spaced convex cells.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tao, L; Nicholson, C

    2004-07-07

    Brain extracellular space (ECS) constitutes a porous medium in which diffusion is subject to hindrance, described by tortuosity, lambda = (D/D*)1/2, where D is the free diffusion coefficient and D* is the effective diffusion coefficient in brain. Experiments show that lambda is typically 1.6 in normal brain tissue although variations occur in specialized brain regions. In contrast, different theoretical models of cellular assemblies give ambiguous results: they either predict lambda-values similar to experimental data or indicate values of about 1.2. Here we constructed three different ECS geometries involving tens of thousands of cells and performed Monte Carlo simulation of 3-D diffusion. We conclude that the geometrical hindrance in the ECS surrounding uniformly spaced convex cells is independent of the cell shape and only depends on the volume fraction alpha (the ratio of the ECS volume to the whole tissue volume). This dependence can be described by the relation lambda = ((3-alpha)/2)1/2, indicating that the geometrical hindrance in such ECS cannot account for lambda > 1.225. Reasons for the discrepancy between the theoretical and experimental tortuosity values are discussed.

  1. A primer on Hilbert space theory linear spaces, topological spaces, metric spaces, normed spaces, and topological groups

    CERN Document Server

    Alabiso, Carlo

    2015-01-01

    This book is an introduction to the theory of Hilbert space, a fundamental tool for non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Linear, topological, metric, and normed spaces are all addressed in detail, in a rigorous but reader-friendly fashion. The rationale for an introduction to the theory of Hilbert space, rather than a detailed study of Hilbert space theory itself, resides in the very high mathematical difficulty of even the simplest physical case. Within an ordinary graduate course in physics there is insufficient time to cover the theory of Hilbert spaces and operators, as well as distribution theory, with sufficient mathematical rigor. Compromises must be found between full rigor and practical use of the instruments. The book is based on the author's lessons on functional analysis for graduate students in physics. It will equip the reader to approach Hilbert space and, subsequently, rigged Hilbert space, with a more practical attitude. With respect to the original lectures, the mathematical flavor in all sub...

  2. Functional analysis and applied optimization in Banach spaces applications to non-convex variational models

    CERN Document Server

    Botelho, Fabio

    2014-01-01

    This book introduces the basic concepts of real and functional analysis. It presents the fundamentals of the calculus of variations, convex analysis, duality, and optimization that are necessary to develop applications to physics and engineering problems. The book includes introductory and advanced concepts in measure and integration, as well as an introduction to Sobolev spaces. The problems presented are nonlinear, with non-convex variational formulation. Notably, the primal global minima may not be attained in some situations, in which cases the solution of the dual problem corresponds to an appropriate weak cluster point of minimizing sequences for the primal one. Indeed, the dual approach more readily facilitates numerical computations for some of the selected models. While intended primarily for applied mathematicians, the text will also be of interest to engineers, physicists, and other researchers in related fields.

    Full Text Available Perhaps one of the major unsolved problem in Approximation Theoryis: Whether or not every Chebyshev subset of a Hilbert space must be convex. Many partial answers to this problem are available in the literature. R.R. Phelps[Proc. Amer. Math.

We extend this result to metricspaces.

  7. Characterization of subdifferentials of a singular convex functional in Sobolev spaces of order minus one

    CERN Document Server

    Kashima, Yohei

    2011-01-01

    Subdifferentials of a singular convex functional representing the surface free energy of a crystal under the roughening temperature are characterized. The energy functional is defined on Sobolev spaces of order -1, so the subdifferential mathematically formulates the energy's gradient which formally involves 4th order spacial derivatives of the surface's height. The subdifferentials are analyzed in the negative Sobolev spaces of arbitrary spacial dimension on which both a periodic boundary condition and a Dirichlet boundary condition are separately imposed. Based on the characterization theorem of subdifferentials, the smallest element contained in the subdifferential of the energy for a spherically symmetric surface is calculated under the Dirichlet boundary condition.

    Full Text Available We introduce an iterative method for finding a common fixed point of a countable family of multivalued quasi-nonexpansive mapping {Ti} in a uniformly convex Banach space. We prove that under certain control conditions, the iterative sequence generated by our method is an approximating fixed point sequence of each Ti. Some strong convergence theorems of the proposed method are also obtained for the following cases: all Ti are continuous and one of Ti is hemicompact, and the domain K is compact.

    By a ball-covering B of a Banach space X,we mean thatB is a collection of open (or closed)balls off the origin whose union contains the unit sphere of X; and X is said to have the ball-covering property provided it admits a ball-covering of countably many balls.This paper shows that universal finite representability and B-convexity of X can be characterized by properties of ball-coverings of its finite dimensioral subspaces.

  13. A maximin characterization of the escape rate of nonexpansive mappings in metrically convex spaces

    CERN Document Server

    2010-01-01

    We establish a maximin characterization of the linear escape rate of the orbits of a nonexpansive mapping on a complete (hemi-)metric space, under a mild form of Busemann's nonpositive curvature condition (we require a distinguished family of geodesics with a common origin to satisfy a convexity inequality). This characterization, which involves horofunctions, generalizes the Collatz-Wielandt characterization of the spectral radius of a nonnegative matrix. It yields as corollaries a theorem of Kohlberg and Neyman (1981), concerning nonexpansive maps in Banach spaces, a variant of a Denjoy-Wolff type theorem of Karlsson (2001), together with a refinement of a theorem of Gunawardena and Walsh (2003), concerning order-preserving positively homogeneous self-maps of symmetric cones.

    Here, we extend the notion of (E.A.) property in a convex metric space defined by Kumar and Rathee (Fixed Point Theory Appl 1-14, 2014) by introducing a new class of self-maps which satisfies the common property (E.A.) in the context of convex metric space and ensure the existence of common fixed point for this newly introduced class of self-maps. Also, we guarantee the existence of common best proximity points for this class of maps satisfying generalized non-expansive type condition. We furnish an example in support of the proved results.

    Adimurthi; Ghoshal, Shyam Sundar; Veerappa Gowda, G. D.

    Here we consider the scalar convex conservation laws in one space dimension with strictly convex flux which is in C1. Existence, uniqueness and L1 contractivity were proved by Kružkov [14]. Using the relative entropy method, Leger showed that for a uniformly convex flux and for the shock wave solutions, the L2 norm of a perturbed solution relative to the shock wave is bounded by the L2 norm of the initial perturbation. Here we generalize the result to Lp norm for all 1⩽p<∞. Also we show that for the non-shock wave solution, Lp norm of the perturbed solution relative to the modified N-wave is bounded by the Lp norm of the initial perturbation for all 1⩽p<∞.

    In order to construct a high-dimensional data approximate model in the purpose of the best coverage of the distribution of high-dimensional samples, the classification algorithm of multiple observation samples based on LI norm convex hull data description is proposed. The convex hull for each class in the train set and multiple observation samples in the test set is constructed as the first step. So the classification of multiple observation samples is transformed to the similarity of convex hulls. If the test convex hull and every train hull are not overlapping, LI norm distance measure is used to solve the similarity of convex hulls. Otherwise, LI norm distance measure is used to solve the similarity of reduced convex hulls. Then the nearest neighbor classifier is used to solve the classification of multiple observation samples. Experiments on three types of databases show that the proposed method is valid and efficient.%为建立高维空间样本分布的最佳覆盖为目标来实现覆盖分类,该文提出基于L1范数凸包数据描述的多观测样本分类算法.首先对训练集的每个类别以及测试集的多观测样本分别构造凸包模型,这样多观测样本的分类就转化为凸包模型的相似性度量问题.若测试集的凸包模型与训练集无重叠,采用L1范数距离测度进行凸包模型之间的相似性度量;若有重叠,采用L1范数距离测度进行收缩凸包(reduced convex hulls)之间的相似性度量.然后采用最近邻准则作为多观测样本的分类决策.在3个数据库上进行的实验结果,表明该文提出方法对于多观测样本分类具有可行性和有效性.

  8. A Convex Formulation for Magnetic Particle Imaging X-Space Reconstruction.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Justin J Konkle

    Full Text Available Magnetic Particle Imaging (mpi is an emerging imaging modality with exceptional promise for clinical applications in rapid angiography, cell therapy tracking, cancer imaging, and inflammation imaging. Recent publications have demonstrated quantitative mpi across rat sized fields of view with x-space reconstruction methods. Critical to any medical imaging technology is the reliability and accuracy of image reconstruction. Because the average value of the mpi signal is lost during direct-feedthrough signal filtering, mpi reconstruction algorithms must recover this zero-frequency value. Prior x-space mpi recovery techniques were limited to 1d approaches which could introduce artifacts when reconstructing a 3d image. In this paper, we formulate x-space reconstruction as a 3d convex optimization problem and apply robust a priori knowledge of image smoothness and non-negativity to reduce non-physical banding and haze artifacts. We conclude with a discussion of the powerful extensibility of the presented formulation for future applications.

    In various approaches, data cubes are pre-computed in order to answer efficiently OLAP queries. The notion of data cube has been declined in various ways: iceberg cubes, range cubes or differential cubes. In this paper, we introduce the concept of convex cube which captures all the tuples of a datacube satisfying a constraint combination. It can be represented in a very compact way in order to optimize both computation time and required storage space. The convex cube is not an additional structure appended to the list of cube variants but we propose it as a unifying structure that we use to characterize, in a simple, sound and homogeneous way, the other quoted types of cubes. Finally, we introduce the concept of emerging cube which captures the significant trend inversions. characterizations.

    In multiple scientific and technological applications we face the problem of having low dimensional data to be justified by a linear model defined in a high dimensional parameter space. The difference in dimensionality makes the problem ill-defined: the model is consistent with the data for many values of its parameters. The objective is to find the probability distribution of parameter values consistent with the data, a problem that can be cast as the exploration of a high dimensional convex polytope. In this work we introduce a novel algorithm to solve this problem efficiently. It provides results that are statistically indistinguishable from currently used numerical techniques while its running time scales linearly with the system size. We show that the algorithm performs robustly in many abstract and practical applications. As working examples we simulate the effects of restricting reaction fluxes on the space of feasible phenotypes of a genome scale Escherichia coli metabolic network and infer the traffic flow between origin and destination nodes in a real communication network.

    Let H(B) be the set of all harmonic functions f on the unit ball B of Rn.For 0 < p,q ≤ ∞ and a normal weight φ, the mixed norm space Hp,q,φ(B) consists of all functions f in H(B) for which the mixed norm ||·||p,q,φ < ∞. In this article, we obtain some characterizations in terms of radial, tangential, and partial derivative norms in Hp,q,φ(B).The parallel results for the Bloch-type space are also obtained. As an application, the analogous problems for polyharmonic functions are discussed.

    This paper presents a new and simple scheme to describe the convex hull in Rd,which only uses three kinds of the faces of the convex hull.i.e.,the d-1-faces,d-2-faces and 0-faces.Thus,we develop and efficient new algorithm for constructing the convex hull of a finite set of points incrementally.This algorithm employs much less storage and time than that of the previously-existing approaches.The analysis of the runniing time as well as the storage for the new algorithm is also theoretically made.The algorithm is optimal in the worst case for even d.

    CERN Document Server

    van de Vel, MLJ

    1993-01-01

    Presented in this monograph is the current state-of-the-art in the theory of convex structures. The notion of convexity covered here is considerably broader than the classic one; specifically, it is not restricted to the context of vector spaces. Classical concepts of order-convex sets (Birkhoff) and of geodesically convex sets (Menger) are directly inspired by intuition; they go back to the first half of this century. An axiomatic approach started to develop in the early Fifties. The author became attracted to it in the mid-Seventies, resulting in the present volume, in which graphs appear si

    Full Text Available Wardowski (2012 introduced a new type of contractive mapping and proved a fixed point result in complete metric spaces as a generalization of Banach contraction principle. In this paper, we introduce a notion of generalized F-contraction mappings which is used to prove a fixed point result for generalized nonexpansive mappings on star-shaped subsets of normed linear spaces. Some theorems on invariant approximations in normed linear spaces are also deduced. Our results extend, unify, and generalize comparable results in the literature.

  20. A Convex Optimization Approach to pMRI Reconstruction

    CERN Document Server

    Zhang, Cishen

    2013-01-01

    In parallel magnetic resonance imaging (pMRI) reconstruction without using estimation of coil sensitivity functions, one group of algorithms reconstruct sensitivity encoded images of the coils first followed by the magnitude only image reconstruction, e.g. GRAPPA, and another group of algorithms jointly compute the image and sensitivity functions by regularized optimization which is a non-convex problem with local only solutions. For the magnitude only image reconstruction, this paper derives a reconstruction formulation, which is linear in the magnitude image, and an associated convex hull in the solution space of the formulated equation containing the magnitude of the image. As a result, the magnitude only image reconstruction for pMRI is formulated into a two-step convex optimization problem, which has a globally optimal solution. An algorithm based on split-bregman and nuclear norm regularized optimizations is proposed to implement the two-step convex optimization and its applications to phantom and in-vi...

  1. Parthood and Convexity as the Basic Notions of a Theory of Space

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Robering, Klaus

    , a ``pregeometry'' is described in which only the notion of convexity but no further axiom is added to that background framework. Pregeometry is extended to the full system in three steps. First the notion of a line segment is explained as the convex hull of the mereological sum of two points. In a second step two...... axioms are added which describe what it means for a thus determined line segment to be ``straight''. In the final step we deal with the order of points on a line segment and define the notion of a line. The presentation of the geometric system is concluded with a brief consideration of the geometrical...

    Swanepoel, Konrad J

    2010-01-01

    The midpoint set M(S) of a set S of points is the set of all midpoints of pairs of points in S. We study the largest cardinality of a midpoint set M(S) in a finite-dimensional normed space, such that M(S) is contained in the unit sphere, and S is outside the closed unit ball. We show in three dimensions that this maximum (if it exists) is determined by the facial structure of the unit ball. In higher dimensions no such relationship exists. We also determine the maximum for euclidean and sup norm spaces.

Characterizations are given for single bounded llner operator being a topo-logical proper contraction. By using complexification of a real Banach space and by applying afixed point theorem of Edelstein, it is shown that every compact topological strict contractionon a Banach space is a topological proper contraction. Finally, results on simultaneous propercontractification are applied to study the stability of a common fixed point of maps which areFr6chet differentiable at that point.

    CERN Document Server

    Azagra, D

    2011-01-01

    We show that for every (not necessarily bounded) open convex subset $U$ of $\\R^n$, every (not necessarily Lipschitz or strongly) convex function $f:U\\to\\R$ can be approximated by real analytic convex functions, uniformly on all of $U$. In doing so we provide a technique which transfers results on uniform approximation on bounded sets to results on uniform approximation on unbounded sets, in such a way that not only convexity and $C^k$ smoothness, but also local Lipschitz constants, minimizers, order, and strict or strong convexity, are preserved. This transfer method is quite general and it can also be used to obtain new results on approximation of convex functions defined on Riemannian manifolds or Banach spaces. We also provide a characterization of the class of convex functions which can be uniformly approximated on $\\R^n$ by strongly convex functions.

(3)Let E be separated and let E be the completion of E. If every closed subspace E0 of E is the complete hull of E0∩E,then E has H.-B. extension property if and only if E has H.-B. extension property.

    Fuzzy logic was introduced by Zadeh in 1965. Since then, the importance of fuzzy logic has come increasingly to the present.There are many applications of fuzzy logic in the field of science and engineering, e.g. population dynamics (Barros), chaos control (Feng,Fradkov), computer programming (Giles), nonlinear dynamical systems (Hong), etc. The concept of intuitionistic fuzzy set, as a generalization of fuzzy logic, was introduced by Atanassov in 1986. Quite recently Park has introduced the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy metric space, and Saadati and Park studied the notion of intuitionistic fuzzy normed space. Intuitionistic fuzzy analogues of many concept in classical analysis was studied by many authors (Mursaleen, Rsaadati, Jebril, Dinda, etc.). The concept of statistical convergence was introduced by Fast. Mursaleen defined {\\lambda}-statistical convergence in Muhammed. Also the concept of statistical convergence was studied in intuitionistic fuzzy normed space in Karakus..Quite recently, Karakaya et a...

  3. Automatically stable discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin methods for stationary transport problems: Quasi-optimal test space norm

    KAUST Repository

    Niemi, Antti H.

    2013-12-01

    We investigate the application of the discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) finite element framework to stationary convection-diffusion problems. In particular, we demonstrate how the quasi-optimal test space norm improves the robustness of the DPG method with respect to vanishing diffusion. We numerically compare coarse-mesh accuracy of the approximation when using the quasi-optimal norm, the standard norm, and the weighted norm. Our results show that the quasi-optimal norm leads to more accurate results on three benchmark problems in two spatial dimensions. We address the problems associated to the resolution of the optimal test functions with respect to the quasi-optimal norm by studying their convergence numerically. In order to facilitate understanding of the method, we also include a detailed explanation of the methodology from the algorithmic point of view. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    The aim of this study was to determine the performance of axial and coronal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting the narrowing of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) space at the high convexity and high midline areas, which is speculated to be one of the clinical characteristics of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH). We retrospectively examined axial and coronal T1-weighted images of 14 iNPH patients and 12 age-matched controls. The narrowness of the CSF space at the high convexity/midline was blindly evaluated by five raters using a continuous confidence rating scale for receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis. Axial and coronal imaging accurately determined the presence of the narrow cisterns/sulci at the high convexity/midline and was capable of predicting probable/definite iNPH with a high degree of accuracy. there were also no significant differences in the detection of this finding between the axial and coronal images. Both axial and coronal T1-weighted MRI can detect the narrow CSF space at the high convexity/midline accurately and may therefore facilitate clinicians in choosing a management strategy for iNPH patients.

    Full Text Available In this paper, the author introduces a notion of partially condensing mappings in a partially ordered normed linear space and proves some hybrid fixed point theorems under certain mixed conditions of algebra, analysis and topology. The applications of abstract results presented here are given to some nonlinear functional integral equations for proving the existence as well as global attractivity of the comparable solutions under certain monotonicity conditions. The abstract theory presented here is very much useful to develop the algorithms for the solutions of some nonlinear problems of analysis and allied areas of mathematics. A realization of of our hypotheses is also indicated by a numerical example.

As applications, we establish noncommutative versions of various best approximation results for generalized I-nonexpansive maps on non-starshaped domain. Our results unify and extend that of Al-Thagafi, Dotson, Habiniak, Jungck and Sessa, Latif, Sahab, Khan and Sessa and Shahzad.

  15. Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin method based on the optimal test space norm for steady transport problems in one space dimension

    KAUST Repository

    2013-05-01

    We revisit the finite element analysis of convection-dominated flow problems within the recently developed Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) variational framework. We demonstrate how test function spaces that guarantee numerical stability can be computed automatically with respect to the optimal test space norm. This makes the DPG method not only stable but also robust, that is, uniformly stable with respect to the Péclet number in the current application. We employ discontinuous piecewise Bernstein polynomials as trial functions and construct a subgrid discretization that accounts for the singular perturbation character of the problem to resolve the corresponding optimal test functions. We also show that a smooth B-spline basis has certain computational advantages in the subgrid discretization. The overall effectiveness of the algorithm is demonstrated on two problems for the linear advection-diffusion equation. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

    Full Text Available In 1940 and 1964, Ulam proposed the general problem: “When is it true that by changing a little the hypotheses of a theorem one can still assert that the thesis of the theorem remains true or approximately true?”. In 1941, Hyers solved this stability problem for linear mappings. According to Gruber (1978 this kind of stability problems are of the particular interest in probability theory and in the case of functional equations of different types. In 1981, Skof was the first author to solve the Ulam problem for quadratic mappings. In 1982–2011, J. M. Rassias solved the above Ulam problem for linear and nonlinear mappings and established analogous stability problems even on restricted domains. The purpose of this paper is the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability for the following cubic functional equation: (++(−=(++(−+2(3−(,≥2 in various normed spaces.

  8. Salt-body Inversion with Minimum Gradient Support and Sobolev Space Norm Regularizations

    KAUST Repository

    Kazei, V.V.

    2017-05-26

    Full-waveform inversion (FWI) is a technique which solves the ill-posed seismic inversion problem of fitting our model data to the measured ones from the field. FWI is capable of providing high-resolution estimates of the model, and of handling wave propagation of arbitrary complexity (visco-elastic, anisotropic); yet, it often fails to retrieve high-contrast geological structures, such as salt. One of the reasons for the FWI failure is that the updates at earlier iterations are too smooth to capture the sharp edges of the salt boundary. We compare several regularization approaches, which promote sharpness of the edges. Minimum gradient support (MGS) regularization focuses the inversion on blocky models, even more than the total variation (TV) does. However, both approaches try to invert undesirable high wavenumbers in the model too early for a model of complex structure. Therefore, we apply the Sobolev space norm as a regularizing term in order to maintain a balance between sharp and smooth updates in FWI. We demonstrate the application of these regularizations on a Marmousi model, enriched by a chunk of salt. The model turns out to be too complex in some parts to retrieve its full velocity distribution, yet the salt shape and contrast are retrieved.

    In this paper we study the covering numbers of the space of convex and uniformly bounded functions in multi-dimension. We find optimal upper and lower bounds for the $\\epsilon$-covering number of $\\C([a, b]^d, B)$, in the $L_p$-metric, $1 \\le p 0$, and $\\C([a,b]^d, B)$ denotes the set of all convex functions on $[a, b]^d$ that are uniformly bounded by $B$. We summarize previously known results on covering numbers for convex functions and also provide alternate proofs of some known results. Our results have direct implications in the study of rates of convergence of empirical minimization procedures as well as optimal convergence rates in the numerous convexity constrained function estimation problems.

    We revisit the finite element analysis of convection dominated flow problems within the recently developed Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) variational framework. We demonstrate how test function spaces that guarantee numerical stability can be computed automatically with respect to the so called optimal test space norm by using an element subgrid discretization. This should make the DPG method not only stable but also robust, that is, uniformly stable with respect to the Ṕeclet number in the current application. The e_ectiveness of the algorithm is demonstrated on two problems for the linear advection-di_usion equation.

    Full Text Available We study continuous descent methods for minimizing convex functions, defined on general Banach spaces, which are associated with an appropriate complete metric space of vector fields. We show that there exists an everywhere dense open set in this space of vector fields such that each of its elements generates strongly convergent trajectories.

    2012-01-01

    We prove that linearizing certain families of polynomial optimization problems leads to new functorial operations in real convex sets. We show that under some conditions these operations can be computed or approximated in ways amenable to efficient computation. These operations are convex analogues of Hom functors, tensor products, symmetric powers, exterior powers and general Schur functors on vector spaces and lead to novel constructions even for polyhedra.

    Using the game approach to fragmentability, we give new and simpler proofs of the following known results: (a) If the Banach space admits an equivalent Kadec norm, then its weak topology is fragmented by a metric which is stronger than the norm topology. (b) If the Banach space admits an equivalent rotund norm, then its weak topology is fragmented by a metric. (c) If the Banach space is weakly locally uniformly rotund, then its weak topology is fragmented by a metric which is stronger than the norm topology.

    Given a normed cone (, ) and a subcone , we construct and study the quotient normed cone $(X/Y,\\tilde{p})$ generated by . In particular we characterize the bicompleteness of $(X/Y,\\tilde{p})$ in terms of the bicompleteness of (, ), and prove that the dual quotient cone $((X/Y)^∗,\\|\\cdot\\|_{\\tilde{p},u})$ can be identified as a distinguished subcone of the dual cone $(X^∗,\\|\\cdot\\|_{\\tilde{p},u})$. Furthermore, some parts of the theory are presented in the general setting of the space $CL(X,Y)$ of all continuous linear mappings from a normed cone (, ) to a normed cone (, ), extending several well-known results related to open continuous linear mappings between normed linear spaces.

  14. On convexity in complex networks

    CERN Document Server

    Marc, Tilen

    2016-01-01

    Metric graph properties lie in the heart of the analysis of complex networks, while in this paper we study their convexity. We analyze the expansion of convex subsets of nodes in empirical networks and also convexity of small subgraphs known as graphlets. We demonstrate that convexity is an inherent property of complex networks not present in a random graph. According to our perception of convexity, a convex network is such in which every connected subset of nodes induces a convex subgraph. Especially convex are technological networks and social collaboration graphs, whereas food webs are the only networks studied that are truly non-convex. Many other networks can be divided into a non-convex core surrounded by a convex periphery. We interpret convexity in terms of redundancy of shortest paths in a network and discuss possible applications.

    2009-06-01

    This study forms part of the Spanish Multicenter Normative Studies (NEURONORMA project). Normative data for people aged over 49 years are presented for selected tasks of the visual object and space perception battery (VOSP) and for the judgment of line orientation (JLO) test. Age-adjusted norms were derived from a sample of 341 participants who are cognitively normal and community-dwelling. Age- and education-adjusted norms are also provided. Years of education were modeled on age-scaled scores to derive regression equations that were applied for further demographic adjustments. The normative information provided here should prove useful for characterizing and interpreting individual test performances as well as comparing the scores from these tests with any other test using NEURONORMA norms.

  7. Exact and Approximate Sizes of Convex Datacubes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nedjar, Sébastien

    In various approaches, data cubes are pre-computed in order to efficiently answer Olap queries. The notion of data cube has been explored in various ways: iceberg cubes, range cubes, differential cubes or emerging cubes. Previously, we have introduced the concept of convex cube which generalizes all the quoted variants of cubes. More precisely, the convex cube captures all the tuples satisfying a monotone and/or antimonotone constraint combination. This paper is dedicated to a study of the convex cube size. Actually, knowing the size of such a cube even before computing it has various advantages. First of all, free space can be saved for its storage and the data warehouse administration can be improved. However the main interest of this size knowledge is to choose at best the constraints to apply in order to get a workable result. For an aided calibrating of constraints, we propose a sound characterization, based on inclusion-exclusion principle, of the exact size of convex cube as long as an upper bound which can be very quickly yielded. Moreover we adapt the nearly optimal algorithm HyperLogLog in order to provide a very good approximation of the exact size of convex cubes. Our analytical results are confirmed by experiments: the approximated size of convex cubes is really close to their exact size and can be computed quasi immediately.

  9. A Mean Point Based Convex Hull Computation Algorithm

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Digvijay Singh

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available The optimal solution of a Linear Programming problem (LPP is a basic feasible solution and all basic feasible solutions are extreme or boundary points of a convex region formed by the constraint functions of the LPP. In fact, the feasible solution space is not always a convex set so the verification of extreme points for optimality is quite difficult. In order to cover the non-convex feasible points within a convex set, a convex hull is imagined so that the extreme or boundary points may be checked for evaluation of the optimum solution in the decision-making process. In this article a computer assisted convex hull computation algorithm using the Mean Point and Python code verified results of the designed algorithm are discussed.

    Hörmander, Lars

    1994-01-01

    The first two chapters of this book are devoted to convexity in the classical sense, for functions of one and several real variables respectively. This gives a background for the study in the following chapters of related notions which occur in the theory of linear partial differential equations and complex analysis such as (pluri-)subharmonic functions, pseudoconvex sets, and sets which are convex for supports or singular supports with respect to a differential operator. In addition, the convexity conditions which are relevant for local or global existence of holomorphic differential equations are discussed, leading up to Trépreau’s theorem on sufficiency of condition (capital Greek letter Psi) for microlocal solvability in the analytic category. At the beginning of the book, no prerequisites are assumed beyond calculus and linear algebra. Later on, basic facts from distribution theory and functional analysis are needed. In a few places, a more extensive background in differential geometry or pseudodiffer...

  11. Finding approximately rank-one submatrices with the nuclear norm and l1 norm

    2010-01-01

    We propose a convex optimization formulation with the nuclear norm and $\\ell_1$-norm to find a large approximately rank-one submatrix of a given nonnegative matrix. We develop optimality conditions for the formulation and characterize the properties of the optimal solutions. We establish conditions under which the optimal solution of the convex formulation has a specific sparse structure. Finally, we show that, under certain hypotheses, with high probability, the approach can recover the rank-one submatrix even when it is corrupted with random noise and inserted as a submatrix into a much larger random noise matrix.

    2011-01-01

    We demonstrate the benefits of a convex geometric perspective for questions on chemical stoichiometry. We show that the balancing of chemical equations, the use of "mixtures" to explain multiple stoichiometry, and the half-reaction for balancing redox actions all yield nice convex geometric interpretations. We also relate some natural questions on reaction mechanisms with the enumeration of lattice points in polytopes. Lastly, it is known that a given reaction mechanism imposes linear constraints on observed stoichiometries. We consider the inverse question of deducing reaction mechanism consistent with a given set of linear stoichiometric restrictions.

    Within sexual geographies, sexual struggles over urban public spaces are frequently explored. Less common is research on sexual struggles within sexually shared spaces and gay spaces. The aim of the article is to examine discursive struggles of meanings of gay male identity enacted in discussions of commodification/capitalism, disclosure, and space in Swedish gay press during 1969-1986. We trace the ambivalent feelings or the emergence of a new gay male norm situated between commercialism and non-commercialism within the Swedish gay press back to the 1970s. In the article we show how a monosexualization process was taking place in both the Swedish gay press as well as within sexual spaces. We explore rhetorical struggles between two competing discursive meanings of (ideal homonormative) male homosexuality, gay culture, and space: one wider (inclusive) and one narrower (exclusive).

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cain, George L., Jr.; González, Luis

    2008-02-01

    The Knaster-Kuratowski-Mazurkiewicz covering theorem (KKM), is the basic ingredient in the proofs of many so-called "intersection" theorems and related fixed point theorems (including the famous Brouwer fixed point theorem). The KKM theorem was extended from Rn to Hausdorff linear spaces by Ky Fan. There has subsequently been a plethora of attempts at extending the KKM type results to arbitrary topological spaces. Virtually all these involve the introduction of some sort of abstract convexity structure for a topological space, among others we could mention H-spaces and G-spaces. We have introduced a new abstract convexity structure that generalizes the concept of a metric space with a convex structure, introduced by E. Michael in [E. Michael, Convex structures and continuous selections, Canad. J. MathE 11 (1959) 556-575] and called a topological space endowed with this structure an M-space. In an article by Shie Park and Hoonjoo Kim [S. Park, H. Kim, Coincidence theorems for admissible multifunctions on generalized convex spaces, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 197 (1996) 173-187], the concepts of G-spaces and metric spaces with Michael's convex structure, were mentioned together but no kind of relationship was shown. In this article, we prove that G-spaces and M-spaces are close related. We also introduce here the concept of an L-space, which is inspired in the MC-spaces of J.V. Llinares [J.V. Llinares, Unified treatment of the problem of existence of maximal elements in binary relations: A characterization, J. Math. Econom. 29 (1998) 285-302], and establish relationships between the convexities of these spaces with the spaces previously mentioned.

    We give a general solution to the question of when the convex hulls of orbits of quantum states on a finite-dimensional Hilbert space under unitary actions of a compact group have a non-empty interior in the surrounding space of all density operators. The same approach can be applied to study convex combinations of quantum channels. The importance of both problems stems from the fact that, usually, only sets with non-vanishing volumes in the embedding spaces of all states or channels are of practical importance. For the group of local transformations on a bipartite system we characterize maximally entangled states by the properties of a convex hull of orbits through them. We also compare two partial characteristics of convex bodies in terms of the largest balls and maximum volume ellipsoids contained in them and show that, in general, they do not coincide. Separable states, mixed-unitary channels and k-entangled states are also considered as examples of our techniques.

    A coloring of a tree is convex if the vertices that pertain to any color induce a connected subtree; a partial coloring (which assigns colors to some of the vertices) is convex if it can be completed to a convex (total) coloring. Convex coloring of trees arise in areas such as phylogenetics, linguistics, etc. eg, a perfect phylogenetic tree is one in which the states of each character induce a convex coloring of the tree. Research on perfect phylogeny is usually focused on finding a tree so t...

  10. Holonomic Spaces

    Solórzano, Pedro

    2010-01-01

    A holonomic space $(V,H,L)$ is a normed vector space, $V$, a subgroup, $H$, of $Aut(V, \\|\\cdot\\|)$ and a group-norm, $L$, with a convexity property. We prove that with the metric $d_L(u,v)=\\inf_{a\\in H}\\{\\sqrt{L^2(a)+\\|u-av\\|^2}\\}$, $V$ is a metric space which is locally isometric to a Euclidean ball. Given a Sasaki-type metric on a vector bundle $E$ over a Riemannian manifold, we prove that the triplet $(E_p,Hol_p,L_p)$ is a holonomic space, where $Hol_p$ is the holonomy group and $L_p$ is the length norm defined within. The topology on $Hol_p$ given by the $L_p$ is finer than the subspace topology while still preserving many desirable properties. Using these notions, we introduce the notion of holonomy radius for a Riemannian manifold and prove it is positive. These results are applicable to the Gromov-Hausdorff convergence of Riemannian manifolds.

  15. Mixed-norm estimates for the M/EEG inverse problem using accelerated gradient methods.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gramfort, Alexandre; Kowalski, Matthieu; Hämäläinen, Matti

    2012-04-07

    Magneto- and electroencephalography (M/EEG) measure the electromagnetic fields produced by the neural electrical currents. Given a conductor model for the head, and the distribution of source currents in the brain, Maxwell's equations allow one to compute the ensuing M/EEG signals. Given the actual M/EEG measurements and the solution of this forward problem, one can localize, in space and in time, the brain regions that have produced the recorded data. However, due to the physics of the problem, the limited number of sensors compared to the number of possible source locations, and measurement noise, this inverse problem is ill-posed. Consequently, additional constraints are needed. Classical inverse solvers, often called minimum norm estimates (MNE), promote source estimates with a small ℓ₂ norm. Here, we consider a more general class of priors based on mixed norms. Such norms have the ability to structure the prior in order to incorporate some additional assumptions about the sources. We refer to such solvers as mixed-norm estimates (MxNE). In the context of M/EEG, MxNE can promote spatially focal sources with smooth temporal estimates with a two-level ℓ₁/ℓ₂ mixed-norm, while a three-level mixed-norm can be used to promote spatially non-overlapping sources between different experimental conditions. In order to efficiently solve the optimization problems of MxNE, we introduce fast first-order iterative schemes that for the ℓ₁/ℓ₂ norm give solutions in a few seconds making such a prior as convenient as the simple MNE. Furthermore, thanks to the convexity of the optimization problem, we can provide optimality conditions that guarantee global convergence. The utility of the methods is demonstrated both with simulations and experimental MEG data.

  16. NORM regulations

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gray, P. [ed.

    1997-02-01

    The author reviews the question of regulation for naturally occuring radioactive material (NORM), and the factors that have made this a more prominent concern today. Past practices have been very relaxed, and have often involved very poor records, the involvment of contractors, and the disposition of contaminated equipment back into commercial service. The rationale behind the establishment of regulations is to provide worker protection, to exempt low risk materials, to aid in scrap recycling, to provide direction for remediation and to examine disposal options. The author reviews existing regulations at federal and state levels, impending legislation, and touches on the issue of site remediation and potential liabilities affecting the release of sites contaminated by NORM.

    Convexity, though extremely important in mathematical programming, has not drawn enough attention in the field of dynamic programming. This paper gives conditions for verifying convexity of the cost-to-go functions, and introduces an accurate, fast and reliable algorithm for solving convex dynamic programs with multivariate continuous states and actions, called Adaptive Convex Enveloping. This is a short introduction of the core technique created and used in my dissertation, so it is less formal, and misses some parts, such as literature review and reference, compared to a full journal paper.

    A convex polytope is defined as the convex hull of a finite non-empty set of vectors. We present a theorem of Rado (1952) which characterizes the convex hull of the collection of all permutations of a given real d-tuple in terms of the Hardy-Littlewood-Polya spectral order relation prec. We give a necessary and sufficient condition to construct a d-dimensional convex polytope which utilizes Rado's original (d-1)-dimensional characterization, and we describe how the resulting polytope may be placed in a quantum mechanical framework.

    2010-01-01

    Sparse additive models are families of $d$-variate functions that have the additive decomposition \\mbox{$f^* = \\sum_{j \\in S} f^*_j$,} where $S$ is a unknown subset of cardinality $s \\ll d$. We consider the case where each component function $f^*_j$ lies in a reproducing kernel Hilbert space, and analyze a simple kernel-based convex program for estimating the unknown function $f^*$. Working within a high-dimensional framework that allows both the dimension $d$ and sparsity $s$ to scale, we derive convergence rates in the $L^2(\\mathbb{P})$ and $L^2(\\mathbb{P}_n)$ norms. These rates consist of two terms: a \\emph{subset selection term} of the order $\\frac{s \\log d}{n}$, corresponding to the difficulty of finding the unknown $s$-sized subset, and an \\emph{estimation error} term of the order $s \\, \

    The set of controllers stabilizing a linear system is generally non-convex in the parameter space. In the case of two-parameter controller design (e.g. PI control or static output feedback with one input and two outputs), we observe however that quite often for benchmark problem instances, the set of stabilizing controllers seems to be convex. In this note we use elementary techniques from real algebraic geometry (resultants and Bezoutian matrices) to explain this phenomenon. As a byproduct, we derive a convex linear matrix inequality (LMI) formulation of two-parameter fixed-order controller design problem, when possible.

    A improving Steady State Genetic Algorithm for global optimization over linear constraint non-convex programmin g problem is presented. By convex analyzing, the primal optimal problem can be converted to an equivalent problem, in which only the information of convex extremes of feasible space is included, and is more easy for GAs to solve. For avoiding invalid genetic operators, a redesigned convex crossover operator is also performed in evolving. As a integrality, the quality of two problem is proven, and a method is also given to get all extremes in linear constraint space. Simulation result show that new algorithm not only converges faster, but also can maintain an diversity population, and can get the global optimum of test problem.

    2011-01-01

    We study the general problem of minimizing a convex function over a compact convex domain. We will investigate a simple iterative approximation algorithm that does not need projection steps in order to stay inside the optimization domain. Instead of a projection step, the linearized problem defined by a current subgradient is solved, which gives a step direction that will naturally stay in the domain. The approach generalizes the sparse greedy algorithm of Clarkson (and the low-rank SDP solver by Hazan) to arbitrary convex domains, and to using subgradients for the case of non-differentiable convex functions. Analogously, we give a convergence proof guaranteeing {\\epsilon}-small duality gap after O(1/{\\epsilon}) iterations. The framework allows us understand the sparsity of approximate solutions for any l1-regularized convex optimization problem, expressed as a function of the approximation quality. We obtain matching upper and lower bounds of {\\Theta}(1/{\\epsilon}) for the sparsity for l1-problems. The same ...

  11. On convex relaxation of graph isomorphism.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Aflalo, Yonathan; Bronstein, Alexander; Kimmel, Ron

    2015-03-10

    We consider the problem of exact and inexact matching of weighted undirected graphs, in which a bijective correspondence is sought to minimize a quadratic weight disagreement. This computationally challenging problem is often relaxed as a convex quadratic program, in which the space of permutations is replaced by the space of doubly stochastic matrices. However, the applicability of such a relaxation is poorly understood. We define a broad class of friendly graphs characterized by an easily verifiable spectral property. We prove that for friendly graphs, the convex relaxation is guaranteed to find the exact isomorphism or certify its inexistence. This result is further extended to approximately isomorphic graphs, for which we develop an explicit bound on the amount of weight disagreement under which the relaxation is guaranteed to find the globally optimal approximate isomorphism. We also show that in many cases, the graph matching problem can be further harmlessly relaxed to a convex quadratic program with only n separable linear equality constraints, which is substantially more efficient than the standard relaxation involving n2 equality and n2 inequality constraints. Finally, we show that our results are still valid for unfriendly graphs if additional information in the form of seeds or attributes is allowed, with the latter satisfying an easy to verify spectral characteristic.

    We investigate some basic properties of the {\\it heart} $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K})$ of a convex set $\\mathcal{K}.$ It is a subset of $\\mathcal{K},$ whose definition is based on mirror reflections of euclidean space, and is a non-local object. The main motivation of our interest for $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K})$ is that this gives an estimate of the location of the hot spot in a convex heat conductor with boundary temperature grounded at zero. Here, we investigate on the relation between $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K})$ and the mirror symmetries of $\\mathcal{K};$ we show that $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K})$ contains many (geometrically and phisically) relevant points of $\\mathcal{K};$ we prove a simple geometrical lower estimate for the diameter of $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K});$ we also prove an upper estimate for the area of $\\heartsuit(\\mathcal{K}),$ when $\\mathcal{K}$ is a triangle.

  16. High-Dimensional Analysis of Convex Optimization-Based Massive MIMO Decoders

    KAUST Repository

    Ben Atitallah, Ismail

    2017-04-01

    A wide range of modern large-scale systems relies on recovering a signal from noisy linear measurements. In many applications, the useful signal has inherent properties, such as sparsity, low-rankness, or boundedness, and making use of these properties and structures allow a more efficient recovery. Hence, a significant amount of work has been dedicated to developing and analyzing algorithms that can take advantage of the signal structure. Especially, since the advent of Compressed Sensing (CS) there has been significant progress towards this direction. Generally speaking, the signal structure can be harnessed by solving an appropriate regularized or constrained M-estimator. In modern Multi-input Multi-output (MIMO) communication systems, all transmitted signals are drawn from finite constellations and are thus bounded. Besides, most recent modulation schemes such as Generalized Space Shift Keying (GSSK) or Generalized Spatial Modulation (GSM) yield signals that are inherently sparse. In the recovery procedure, boundedness and sparsity can be promoted by using the ℓ1 norm regularization and by imposing an ℓ∞ norm constraint respectively. In this thesis, we propose novel optimization algorithms to recover certain classes of structured signals with emphasis on MIMO communication systems. The exact analysis permits a clear characterization of how well these systems perform. Also, it allows an automatic tuning of the parameters. In each context, we define the appropriate performance metrics and we analyze them exactly in the High Dimentional Regime (HDR). The framework we use for the analysis is based on Gaussian process inequalities; in particular, on a new strong and tight version of a classical comparison inequality (due to Gordon, 1988) in the presence of additional convexity assumptions. The new framework that emerged from this inequality is coined as Convex Gaussian Min-max Theorem (CGMT).

    2010-12-01

    The idea of describing animal movement by mathematical models based on diffusion and Brownian motion has a long heritage. It has thus been natural to account for those aspects of motion that depart from the Brownian by the use of models incorporating long memory & subdiffusion (“the Joseph effect”) and/or heavy tails & superdiffusion (“the Noah effect”). My own interest in this problem was originally from a geoscience perspective, and was triggered by the need to model time series in space physics where both effects coincide. Subsequently I have been involved in animal foraging studies [e.g. Edwards et al, Nature, 2007]. I will describe some recent work [Watkins et al, PRE, 2009] which studies how fixed-timestep and variable-timestep formulations of anomalous diffusion are related in the presence of heavy tails and long range memory (stable processes versus the CTRW). Quantities for which different scaling relations are predicted between the two approaches are of particular interest, to aid testability. I will also present some of work in progress on the convex hull of anomalously diffusing walkers, inspired by its possible relevance to the idea of home range in biology, and by Randon-Furling et al’s recent analytical results in the Brownian case [PRL, 2009].

  18. Convex functions, monotone operators and differentiability

    CERN Document Server

    Phelps, Robert R

    1989-01-01

    These notes start with an introduction to the differentiability of convex functions on Banach spaces, leading to the study of Asplund spaces and their intriguing relationship to monotone operators (and more general set-values maps) and Banach spaces with the Radon-Nikodym property. While much of this is classical, some of it is presented using streamlined proofs which were not available until recently. Considerable attention is paid to contemporary results on variational principles and perturbed optimization in Banach spaces, exhibiting their close connections with Asplund spaces. An introductory course in functional analysis is adequate background for reading these notes which can serve as the basis for a seminar of a one-term graduate course. There are numerous excercises, many of which form an integral part of the exposition.

    2008-01-01

    In this paper we examine decision problems associated with various classes of convex languages, studied by Ang and Brzozowski (under the name "continuous languages''). We show that we can decide whether a given language L is prefix-, suffix-, factor-, or subword-convex in polynomial time if L is represented by a DFA, but that the problem is PSPACE-hard if L is represented by an NFA. In the case that a regular language is not convex, we prove tight upper bounds on the length of the shortest words demonstrating this fact, in terms of the number of states of an accepting DFA. Similar results are proved for some subclasses of convex languages: the prefix-, suffix-, factor-, and subword-closed languages, and the prefix-, suffix-, factor-, and subword-free languages.

    Full Text Available To each closed subset S of a finite-dimensional Euclidean space corresponds a σ-ideal of sets  (S which is σ-generated over S by the convex subsets of S. The set-theoretic properties of this ideal hold geometric information about the set. We discuss the relation of reducibility between convexity ideals and the connections between convexity ideals and other types of ideals, such as the ideals which are generated over squares of Polish space by graphs and inverses of graphs of continuous self-maps, or Ramsey ideals, which are generated over Polish spaces by the homogeneous sets with respect to some continuous pair coloring. We also attempt to present to nonspecialists the set-theoretic methods for dealing with formal independence as a means of geometric investigations.

  4. Linear System Identification via Atomic Norm Regularization

    Shah, Parikshit; Tang, Gongguo; Recht, Benjamin

    2012-01-01

    This paper proposes a new algorithm for linear system identification from noisy measurements. The proposed algorithm balances a data fidelity term with a norm induced by the set of single pole filters. We pose a convex optimization problem that approximately solves the atomic norm minimization problem and identifies the unknown system from noisy linear measurements. This problem can be solved efficiently with standard, freely available software. We provide rigorous statistical guarantees that explicitly bound the estimation error (in the H_2-norm) in terms of the stability radius, the Hankel singular values of the true system and the number of measurements. These results in turn yield complexity bounds and asymptotic consistency. We provide numerical experiments demonstrating the efficacy of our method for estimating linear systems from a variety of linear measurements.

  5. Systematization of problems on ball estimates of a convex compactum

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dudov, S. I.

    2015-09-01

    We consider a class of finite-dimensional problems on the estimation of a convex compactum by a ball of an arbitrary norm in the form of extremal problems whose goal function is expressed via the function of the distance to the farthest point of the compactum and the function of the distance to the nearest point of the compactum or its complement. Special attention is devoted to the problem of estimating (approximating) a convex compactum by a ball of fixed radius in the Hausdorff metric. It is proved that this problem plays the role of the canonical problem: solutions of any problem in the class under consideration can be expressed via solutions of this problem for certain values of the radius. Based on studying and using the properties of solutions of this canonical problem, we obtain ranges of values of the radius in which the canonical problem expresses solutions of the problems on inscribed and circumscribed balls, the problem of uniform estimate by a ball in the Hausdorff metric, the problem of asphericity of a convex body, the problems of spherical shells of the least thickness and of the least volume for the boundary of a convex body. This makes it possible to arrange the problems in increasing order of the corresponding values of the radius. Bibliography: 34 titles.

    Aspheric optical components are the indispensable part of modern optics systems. With the constant development of aspheric optical fabrication technique, the systems with large aperture convex aspheric optical components are widely used in astronomy and space optics. Thus, the measurement of the figure error of the whole convex aspherical surface with high precision comes to be a challenge in the area of optical surface manufacture, and surface testing method is also very important. This paper presents a new partial compensating system by the combination of a refractive lens and a reflective mirror for testing convex aspherical surface. The refractive lens is used to compensate the aberration of the tested convex asphere partially. The reflective mirror is a spherical mirror which is coaxial to the refractive lens and reflecting the lights reflected by the tested convex asphere back to the convex asphere itself. With the long focal length and large aperture system we can realize a lighter and more compact system than the refractive partial compensating system because the spheric reflective mirror is more easily to realize and can bending the light conveniently.

Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of E, T:C→C a continuous pseudocontractive mapping with F(T≠∅, and A:C→C a continuous bounded strongly pseudocontractive mapping with a pseudocontractive constant k∈(0,1.

If either every weakly compact convex subset of E has the fixed point property for nonexpansive mappings or E is strictly convex, then {xn} converges strongly to a fixed point of T, which solves a certain variational inequality related to A.

    In linear prediction of speech, the 1-norm error minimization criterion has been shown to provide a valid alternative to the 2-norm minimization criterion. However, unlike 2-norm minimization, 1-norm minimization does not guarantee the stability of the corresponding all-pole filter and can generate...... of the shift operator associated with the particular prediction problem considered. The second method uses the alternative Cauchy bound to impose a convex constraint on the predictor in the 1-norm error minimization. These methods are compared with two existing methods: the Burg method, based on the 1-norm...... minimization of the forward and backward prediction error, and the iteratively reweighted 2-norm minimization known to converge to the 1-norm minimization with an appropriate selection of weights. The evaluation gives proof of the effectiveness of the new methods, performing as well as unconstrained 1-norm...

    The shape of homogeneous, smooth convex bodies as described by the Euclidean distance from the center of gravity represents a rather restricted class M_C of Morse-Smale functions on S^2. Here we show that even M_C exhibits the complexity known for general Morse-Smale functions on S^2 by exhausting all combinatorial possibilities: every 2-colored quadrangulation of the sphere is isomorphic to a suitably represented Morse-Smale complex associated with a function in M_C (and vice versa). We prove our claim by an inductive algorithm, starting from the path graph P_2 and generating convex bodies corresponding to quadrangulations with increasing number of vertices by performing each combinatorially possible vertex splitting by a convexity- preserving local manipulation of the surface. Since convex bodies carrying Morse-Smale complexes isomorphic to P_2 exist, this algorithm not only proves our claim but also defines a hierarchical order among convex solids and general- izes the known classification scheme in [35], ...

    Full Text Available We study the fixed point property (FPP in the Banach space c0 with the equivalent norm ‖⋅‖D. The space c0 with this norm has the weak fixed point property. We prove that every infinite-dimensional subspace of (c0,‖⋅‖D contains a complemented asymptotically isometric copy of c0, and thus does not have the FPP, but there exist nonempty closed convex and bounded subsets of (c0,‖⋅‖D which are not ω-compact and do not contain asymptotically isometric c0—summing basis sequences. Then we define a family of sequences which are asymptotically isometric to different bases equivalent to the summing basis in the space (c0,‖⋅‖D, and we give some of its properties. We also prove that the dual space of (c0,‖⋅‖D over the reals is the Bynum space l1∞ and that every infinite-dimensional subspace of l1∞ does not have the fixed point property.

    In various wireless networking settings, node locations determine a network’s topology, allowing the network to be modelled by a geometric graph drawn in the plane. Without any additional information, local geometric routing algorithms can guarantee delivery to the target node only in restricted...... classes of geometric graphs, such as triangulations. In order to guarantee delivery on more general classes of geometric graphs (e.g., convex subdivisions or planar subdivisions), previous local geometric routing algorithms required Θ(logn) state bits to be stored and passed with the message.

We also define and study the dual cone of a monotone normed cone and the monotone quotient of a general cone.We provide a decomposition theorem which allows us to write a cone as a direct sum of a monotone subcone that is isomorphic to the monotone quotient and other particular subcone.

  11. Bounding the errors for convex dynamics on one or more polytopes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tresser, Charles

    2007-09-01

    We discuss the greedy algorithm for approximating a sequence of inputs in a family of polytopes lying in affine spaces by an output sequence made of vertices of the respective polytopes. More precisely, we consider here the case when the greed of the algorithm is dictated by the Euclidean norms of the successive cumulative errors. This algorithm can be interpreted as a time-dependent dynamical system in the vector space, where the errors live, or as a time-dependent dynamical system in an affine space containing copies of all the original polytopes. This affine space contains the inputs, as well as the inputs modified by adding the respective former errors; it is the evolution of these modified inputs that the dynamical system in affine space describes. Scheduling problems with many polytopes arise naturally, for instance, when the inputs are from a single polytope P, but one imposes the constraint that whenever the input belongs to a codimension n face, the output has to be in the same codimension n face (as when scheduling drivers among participants of a carpool). It has been previously shown that the error is bounded in the case of a single polytope by proving the existence of an arbitrary large convex invariant region for the dynamics in affine space: A region that is simultaneously invariant for several polytopes, each considered separately, was also constructed. It was then shown that there cannot be an invariant region in affine space in the general case of a family of polytopes. Here we prove the existence of an arbitrary large convex invariant set for the dynamics in the vector space in the case when the sizes of the polytopes in the family are bounded and the set of all the outgoing normals to all the faces of all the polytopes is finite. It was also previously known that starting from zero as the initial error set, the error set could not be saturated in finitely many steps in some cases with several polytopes: Contradicting a former conjecture, we show

  20. Relations for certain symmetric norms and anti-norms before and after partial trace

    CERN Document Server

    Rastegin, Alexey E

    2012-01-01

    Changes of some unitarily invariant norms and anti-norms under the operation of partial trace are examined. The norms considered form a two-parametric family, including both the Ky Fan and Schatten norms as particular cases. The obtained results concern operators acting on the tensor product of two finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. For any such operator, we obtain lower bounds on norms of its partial trace in terms of the corresponding dimensionality and norms of this operator. Similar inequalities, but in the opposite direction, are obtained for certain anti-norms of positive matrices. Applications of the results to generalized quantum entropies are discussed. We derive inequalities between the unified entropies of a composite quantum system and one of its subsystems, where the traced-out dimensionality is involved as well.

  1. Constrained spacecraft reorientation using mixed integer convex programming

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tam, Margaret; Glenn Lightsey, E.

    2016-10-01

    A constrained attitude guidance (CAG) system is developed using convex optimization to autonomously achieve spacecraft pointing objectives while meeting the constraints imposed by on-board hardware. These constraints include bounds on the control input and slew rate, as well as pointing constraints imposed by the sensors. The pointing constraints consist of inclusion and exclusion cones that dictate permissible orientations of the spacecraft in order to keep objects in or out of the field of view of the sensors. The optimization scheme drives a body vector towards a target inertial vector along a trajectory that consists solely of permissible orientations in order to achieve the desired attitude for a given mission mode. The non-convex rotational kinematics are handled by discretization, which also ensures that the quaternion stays unity norm. In order to guarantee an admissible path, the pointing constraints are relaxed. Depending on how strict the pointing constraints are, the degree of relaxation is tuneable. The use of binary variables permits the inclusion of logical expressions in the pointing constraints in the case that a set of sensors has redundancies. The resulting mixed integer convex programming (MICP) formulation generates a steering law that can be easily integrated into an attitude determination and control (ADC) system. A sample simulation of the system is performed for the Bevo-2 satellite, including disturbance torques and actuator dynamics which are not modeled by the controller. Simulation results demonstrate the robustness of the system to disturbances while meeting the mission requirements with desirable performance characteristics.

    The goal of one-class classification model is to design the covering model for the target class. The model should ideally cover the objects of target class, and reject all other non-targets. The support vector data description (SVDD) aims to find the minimum ball enclosed all the target objects. However, this model couldn't perform better for the data with irregular and complex distribution. The convex hull data description (CHDD) based tight covering model is presented in this paper. The model is a non-parametric classifier which covers the irregular data adaptively in the feature spaces. By the introduction of kernel functions, the stronger ability of nonlinear classification could be obtained. When the training set of target class contains outliers, the model can be made more robust by rejecting a fraction of the training objects. The experimental results show that the presented method performs better by comparing its results on the UCI, MNIST and MIT-CBCL face data sets with other one-class cl assification methods.%一类分类问题的研究目标是设计目标类样本的覆盖函数,理想情况下使得目标类样本被接受,所有非目标类的样本被拒绝.经典SVDD覆盖模型寻找包含训练数据的最小半径超球对其进行覆盖,该模型对非规则复杂分布的数据描述存在较多的冗余区域.本文提出一种基于训练集样本凸壳数据描述(Convex Hull Data Description,CHDD)的紧致覆盖模型.该模型无须参数设置,可实现对样本非规则复杂分布的自适应覆盖,并可通过利用核函数方法获得更强的非线性分类能力.当训练集包含噪声样本时,通过拒绝一定比例的目标类样本可获得更为鲁棒的凸壳边界描述.在UCI数据库、MNIST手写体数据库和MIT-CBCL人脸识别数据库上的实验结果表明了本文方法的有效性,相比现有一类分类算法,CHDD取得更好的分类效果.

    Full Text Available Let A and B be C*-algebras. We consider a noncommutative convexity in Hilbert A-B-bimodules, called A-B-convexity, as a generalization of C*-convexity in C*-algebras. We show that if X is a Hilbert A-B-bimodule, then Mn(X is a Hilbert Mn(A-Mn(B-bimodule and apply it to show that the closed unit ball of every Hilbert A-B-bimodule is A-B-convex. Some properties of this kind of convexity and various examples have been given.

    We show a powerful method to compute entanglement measures based on convex roof constructions. In particular, our method is applicable to measures that, for pure states, can be written as low order polynomials of operator expectation values. We show how to compute the linear entropy of entanglement, the linear entanglement of assistance, and a bound on the dimension of the entanglement for bipartite systems. We discuss how to obtain the convex roof of the three-tangle for three-qubit states. We also show how to calculate the linear entropy of entanglement and the quantum Fisher information based on partial information or device independent information. We demonstrate the usefulness of our method by concrete examples.

    Let K be a nonempty, closed and convex subset of a real reflexive Banach space E which has a uniformly Gˆateaux differentiable norm. Assume that every nonempty closed con-vex and bounded subset of K has the fixed point property for nonexpansive mappings. Strong convergence theorems for approximation of a fixed point of Lipschitz pseudo-contractive map-pings which is also a unique solution to variational inequality problem involving φ-strongly pseudo-contractive mappings are proved. The results presented in this article can be applied to the study of fixed points of nonexpansive mappings, variational inequality problems, con-vex optimization problems, and split feasibility problems. Our result extends many recent important results.

    2010-01-01

    This article describes a method to compute successive convex approximations of the convex hull of a set of points in R^n that are the solutions to a system of polynomial equations over the reals. The method relies on sums of squares of polynomials and the dual theory of moment matrices. The main feature of the technique is that all computations are done modulo the ideal generated by the polynomials defining the set to the convexified. This work was motivated by questions raised by Lov\\'asz concerning extensions of the theta body of a graph to arbitrary real algebraic varieties, and hence the relaxations described here are called theta bodies. The convexification process can be seen as an incarnation of Lasserre's hierarchy of convex relaxations of a semialgebraic set in R^n. When the defining ideal is real radical the results become especially nice. We provide several examples of the method and discuss convergence issues. Finite convergence, especially after the first step of the method, can be described expl...

    Ostomy skin barriers that incorporate a convexity feature have been available in the marketplace for decades, but limited resources are available to guide clinicians in selection and use of convex products. Given the widespread use of convexity, and the need to provide practical guidelines for appropriate use of pouching systems with convex features, an international consensus panel was convened to provide consensus-based guidance for this aspect of ostomy practice. Panelists were provided with a summary of relevant literature in advance of the meeting; these articles were used to generate and reach consensus on 26 statements during a 1-day meeting. Consensus was achieved when 80% of panelists agreed on a statement using an anonymous electronic response system. The 26 statements provide guidance for convex product characteristics, patient assessment, convexity use, and outcomes. PMID:28002174

A close reading of the peace-building process...... in post-conflict Kosovo provides the backdrop for the theoretical discussion that identifies friction in norm diffusion processes and the different agencies that are generated through encounters between global norms and local practices. We unpack the interplay between the 'global' and the 'local......' in peacebuilding and, through the lens of friction, we reveal the diverse and unequal encounters that produce new power relations. By foregrounding agency, we theorise different agentive subjects in the post-conflict setting, and map local agency from various segments of society that may localise, co-opt or reject...

This confirms a conjecture of Donaldson in this particular case and implies a complete classification of the explicit toric K\\"ahler-Einstein and toric Sasaki-Einstein metrics constructed in [6,23,14]. As a byproduct, we obtain a wealth of extremal toric (complex) orbi-surfaces, including K\\"ahler-Einstein ones, and show that for a toric orbi-surface with 4 fixed points of the torus action, the vanishing of the Futaki invariant is a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of K\\"ahler metric with constant scalar curvature. Our results also provide explicit examples of relative K-unstable toric orbi-surfaces that do not admit extremal metrics.

    The set of all surface tensors of a convex body K (Minkowski tensors derived from the surface area measure of K) determine K up to translation, and hereby, the surface tensors of K contain all information on the shape of K. Here, shape means the equivalence class of all convex bodies...... that are translates of each other. An algorithm for reconstructing an unknown convex body in R 2 from its surface tensors up to a certain rank is presented. Using the reconstruction algorithm, the shape of an unknown convex body can be approximated when only a finite number s of surface tensors are available....... The output of the reconstruction algorithm is a polytope P, where the surface tensors of P and K are identical up to rank s. We establish a stability result based on a generalization of Wirtinger’s inequality that shows that for large s, two convex bodies are close in shape when they have identical surface...

    For a self-similar set E satisfying the open set condition,upper convex density is an important concept for the computation of its Hausdorff measure,and it is well known that the set of relative interior points with upper convex density 1has a full Hausdorff measure.But whether the upper convex densities of E at all the relative interior points are equal to 1? In other words,whether there exists a relative interior point of E such that the upper convex density of E at this point is less than 1?In this paper,the authors construct a self-similar set satisfying the open set condition,which has a relative interior point with upper convex density less than 1.Thereby,the above problem is sufficiently answered.

  2. Generalized convexity, generalized monotonicity recent results

    CERN Document Server

    Martinez-Legaz, Juan-Enrique; Volle, Michel

    1998-01-01

    A function is convex if its epigraph is convex. This geometrical structure has very strong implications in terms of continuity and differentiability. Separation theorems lead to optimality conditions and duality for convex problems. A function is quasiconvex if its lower level sets are convex. Here again, the geo­ metrical structure of the level sets implies some continuity and differentiability properties for quasiconvex functions. Optimality conditions and duality can be derived for optimization problems involving such functions as well. Over a period of about fifty years, quasiconvex and other generalized convex functions have been considered in a variety of fields including economies, man­ agement science, engineering, probability and applied sciences in accordance with the need of particular applications. During the last twenty-five years, an increase of research activities in this field has been witnessed. More recently generalized monotonicity of maps has been studied. It relates to generalized conve...

  3. Norm and anti-norm inequalities for positive semi-definite matrices

    CERN Document Server

    Bourin, Jean-Christophe

    2010-01-01

    Some subadditivity results involving symmetric (unitarily invariant) norms are obtained. For instance, if $g(t)=\\sum_{k=0}^m a_kt^k$ is a polynomial of degree $m$ with non-negative coefficients, then, for all positive operators $A,\\,B$ and all symmetric norms, $\\|g(A+B)\\|^{1/m} \\le \\|g(A)\\|^{1/m} + \\|g(B)\\|^{1/m}$. To give parallel superadditivity results, we investigate anti-norms, a class of functionals containing the Schatten $q$-norms for $q\\in(0,1]$ and $q<0$. The results are extensions of the Minkowski determinantal inequality. A few estimates for block-matrices are derived. For instance, let $f:[0,\\infty) \\to [0,\\infty)$ be concave and $p\\in(1,\\infty)$. If $f^p(t)$ is superadditive, then $Tr f(A) \\ge (\\sum_{i=1}^m f^p(a_{ii}))^{1/p}$ for all positive $m\\times m$ matrix $A=[a_{ij}]$. Furthermore, for the normalized trace $\\tau$, we consider functions $\\phi(t)$ and $f(t)$ for which the functional $A\\mapsto\\phi\\circ\\tau\\circ f(A)$ is convex or concave, and obtain a simple analytic criterion.

    2010-01-01

    We obtain the plasticity equations for convex quadrilaterals on a complete convex surface with bounded specific curvature and derive a plasticity principle which states that: Given four shortest arcs which meet at the weighted Fermat-Torricelli point P_F and their endpoints form a convex quadrilateral, an increase of the weight that corresponds to a shortest arc causes a decrease to the two weights that correspond to the two neighboring shortest arcs and an increase to the weight that corresponds to the opposite shortest arc. We show a connection between the plasticity of convex quadrilaterals on a complete convex surface with bounded specific curvature with the plasticity of generalized convex quadrilaterals on a manifold which is composed by triangles located on a complete convex surface of bounded specific curvature and triangles located on a two dimensional sphere whose constant Gaussian curvature equals to the infimum or supremum of the specific curvature. Furthermore, we give some cases of geometrizatio...

As special cases, we get the strong convergence of the implicit viscosity iteration process for approximating common fixed points of the nonexpansive semigroup in Banach spaces satisfying some conditions. The results presented in this paper extend and generalize some results concerned with the nonexpansive semigroup in (Chen and He, 2007 and the pseudocontractive mapping in (Zegeye et al., 2007 to the pseudocontractive semigroup in Banach spaces under different conditions.

  9. Bundles of Norms About Teen Sex and Pregnancy.

    2015-09-01

    Teen pregnancy is a cultural battleground in struggles over morality, education, and family. At its heart are norms about teen sex, contraception, pregnancy, and abortion. Analyzing 57 interviews with college students, we found that "bundles" of related norms shaped the messages teens hear. Teens did not think their communities encouraged teen sex or pregnancy, but normative messages differed greatly, with either moral or practical rationalizations. Teens readily identified multiple norms intended to regulate teen sex, contraception, abortion, childbearing, and the sanctioning of teen parents. Beyond influencing teens' behavior, norms shaped teenagers' public portrayals and post hoc justifications of their behavior. Although norm bundles are complex to measure, participants could summarize them succinctly. These bundles and their conflicting behavioral prescriptions create space for human agency in negotiating normative pressures. The norm bundles concept has implications for teen pregnancy prevention policies and can help revitalize social norms for understanding health behaviors.

  10. Convex integration theory solutions to the h-principle in geometry and topology

    CERN Document Server

    Spring, David

    1998-01-01

    This book provides a comprehensive study of convex integration theory in immersion-theoretic topology. Convex integration theory, developed originally by M. Gromov, provides general topological methods for solving the h-principle for a wide variety of problems in differential geometry and topology, with applications also to PDE theory and to optimal control theory. Though topological in nature, the theory is based on a precise analytical approximation result for higher order derivatives of functions, proved by M. Gromov. This book is the first to present an exacting record and exposition of all of the basic concepts and technical results of convex integration theory in higher order jet spaces, including the theory of iterated convex hull extensions and the theory of relative h-principles. A second feature of the book is its detailed presentation of applications of the general theory to topics in symplectic topology, divergence free vector fields on 3-manifolds, isometric immersions, totally real embeddings, u...

    In an economy where there is no double coincidence of wants and without recordkeeping of past transactions, money is usually seen as the only mechanism that can support exchange. In this paper, we show that, as long as the population is finite and agents are sufficiently patient, a social norm establishing gift-exchange can substitute for money. Notwithstanding, for a given discount factor, the growth of the population size eventually leads to the breakdown of the social norm, ...

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, the authors introduce the concept of h-quasiconvex functions on Carnot groups G. It is shown that the notions of h-quasiconvex functions and h-convex sets are equivalent and the L∞ estimates of first derivatives of h-quasiconvex functions are given. For a Carnot group G of step two, it is proved that h-quasiconvex functions are locally bounded from above. Furthermore, the authors obtain that h-convex functions are locally Lipschitz continuous and that an h-convex function is twice differentiable almost everywhere.

  13. On the vertex index of convex bodies

    CERN Document Server

    Bezdek, Karoly

    2011-01-01

    We introduce the vertex index, vein(K), of a given centrally symmetric convex body K, which, in a sense, measures how well K can be inscribed into a convex polytope with small number of vertices. This index is closely connected to the illumination parameter of a body, introduced earlier by the first named author, and, thus, related to the famous conjecture in Convex Geometry about covering of a d-dimensional body by 2^d smaller positively homothetic copies. We provide asymptotically sharp estimates (up to a logarithmic term) of this index in the general case. Also, we provide sharp estimates in dimensions 2 and 3.

Our results improve and extend the results obtained by Marino-Xu, Zhou, Osilike-Udomene, Zhang-Guo and the corresponding results. We also point out that the condition given by Chidume-Shahzad (2010 is not satisfied in a real Hilbert space. We show that their results still are true under a new condition.

  15. Designing Camera Networks by Convex Quadratic Programming

    KAUST Repository

    Ghanem, Bernard

    2015-05-04

    ​In this paper, we study the problem of automatic camera placement for computer graphics and computer vision applications. We extend the problem formulations of previous work by proposing a novel way to incorporate visibility constraints and camera-to-camera relationships. For example, the placement solution can be encouraged to have cameras that image the same important locations from different viewing directions, which can enable reconstruction and surveillance tasks to perform better. We show that the general camera placement problem can be formulated mathematically as a convex binary quadratic program (BQP) under linear constraints. Moreover, we propose an optimization strategy with a favorable trade-off between speed and solution quality. Our solution is almost as fast as a greedy treatment of the problem, but the quality is significantly higher, so much so that it is comparable to exact solutions that take orders of magnitude more computation time. Because it is computationally attractive, our method also allows users to explore the space of solutions for variations in input parameters. To evaluate its effectiveness, we show a range of 3D results on real-world floorplans (garage, hotel, mall, and airport). ​

    2014-01-01

    The ratio of convexity radius over injectivity radius may be made arbitrarily small within the class of compact Riemannian manifolds of any fixed dimension at least two. This is proved using Gulliver's method of constructing manifolds with focal points but no conjugate points. The approach is suggested by a characterization of the convexity radius that resembles a classical result of Klingenberg about the injectivity radius.

  20. Convex-Faced Combinatorially Regular Polyhedra of Small Genus

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jörg M. Wills

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Combinatorially regular polyhedra are polyhedral realizations (embeddings in Euclidean 3-space E3 of regular maps on (orientable closed compact surfaces. They are close analogues of the Platonic solids. A surface of genus g ≥ 2 admits only finitely many regular maps, and generally only a small number of them can be realized as polyhedra with convex faces. When the genus g is small, meaning that g is in the historically motivated range 2 ≤ g ≤ 6, only eight regular maps of genus g are known to have polyhedral realizations, two discovered quite recently. These include spectacular convex-faced polyhedra realizing famous maps of Klein, Fricke, Dyck, and Coxeter. We provide supporting evidence that this list is complete; in other words, we strongly conjecture that in addition to those eight there are no other regular maps of genus g, with 2 ≤ g ≤ 6, admitting realizations as convex-faced polyhedra in E3. For all admissible maps in this range, save Gordan’s map of genus 4, and its dual, we rule out realizability by a polyhedron in E3.

  1. Gauss images of hyperbolic cusps with convex polyhedral boundary

    CERN Document Server

    Fillastre, François

    2009-01-01

    We prove that a 3--dimensional hyperbolic cusp with convex polyhedral boundary is uniquely determined by its Gauss image. Furthermore, any spherical metric on the torus with cone singularities of negative curvature and all closed contractible geodesics of length greater than $2\\pi$ is the metric of the Gauss image of some convex polyhedral cusp. This result is an analog of the Rivin-Hodgson theorem characterizing compact convex hyperbolic polyhedra in terms of their Gauss images. The proof uses a variational method. Namely, a cusp with a given Gauss image is identified with a critical point of a functional on the space of cusps with cone-type singularities along a family of half-lines. The functional is shown to be concave and to attain maximum at an interior point of its domain. As a byproduct, we prove rigidity statements with respect to the Gauss image for cusps with or without cone-type singularities. In a special case, our theorem is equivalent to existence of a circle pattern on the torus, with prescrib...

  3. Understanding multiple levels of norms about teen pregnancy and their relationships to teens' sexual behaviors.

    Mollborn, Stefanie; Domingue, Benjamin W; Boardman, Jason D

    2014-06-01

    Researchers seeking to understand teen sexual behaviors often turn to age norms, but they are difficult to measure quantitatively. Previous work has usually inferred norms from behavioral patterns or measured group-level norms at the individual level, ignoring multiple reference groups. Capitalizing on the multilevel design of the Add Health survey, we measure teen pregnancy norms perceived by teenagers, as well as average norms at the school and peer network levels. School norms predict boys' perceived norms, while peer network norms predict girls' perceived norms. Peer network and individually perceived norms against teen pregnancy independently and negatively predict teens' likelihood of sexual intercourse. Perceived norms against pregnancy predict increased likelihood of contraception among sexually experienced girls, but sexually experienced boys' contraceptive behavior is more complicated: When both the boy and his peers or school have stronger norms against teen pregnancy he is more likely to contracept, and in the absence of school or peer norms against pregnancy, boys who are embarrassed are less likely to contracept. We conclude that: (1) patterns of behavior cannot adequately operationalize teen pregnancy norms, (2) norms are not simply linked to behaviors through individual perceptions, and (3) norms at different levels can operate independently of each other, interactively, or in opposition. This evidence creates space for conceptualizations of agency, conflict, and change that can lead to progress in understanding age norms and sexual behaviors.

    An $n-1$--dimensional tropical simplex $\\TT_A$ is the set of points tropically spanned by $n$ points in $n-1$--dimensional space, when they are not contained in any tropical hyperplane. The coordinates of the points are written as the columns of an $n\\times n$ real matrix $A$. In theorem \\ref{thm:convexity}, we show that convexity of $\\TT_A$ is equivalent to normality and tropical idempotency of $A$. A description of $\\TT_A$ by $n(n-1)$ linear inequalities is immediate from $A$. Set $n=4$. We study \\textbf{tropical tetrahedra} which are \\textbf{convex} and \\textbf{maximal} (i.e., having the maximal number of extremal points, which is 20, and maximal number of facets, which is 12). By tropicality, the facets in $\\TT_A$ are $m$--gons, with $m=3,4,5,6$. In corollary \\ref{cor:no(0,0,12,0)ni(0,1,10,1)}, we show that a polyhedron $\\TT_A$ combinatorially equivalent to the regular dodecahedron does not occur, i.e., the polygon--vector $(f_3,f_4,f_5,f_6)$ of $\\TT_A$ (with $12=f_3+f_4+f_5+f_6$) cannot be $(0,0,12,0)$. ...

We prove strong convergence theorem for the iterative algorithm under suitable conditions. On the other hand, we also propose another implicit iterative algorithm for finding a fixed point of infinitely many nonexpansive mappings with the same constraints, and derive its strong convergence under mild assumptions.

    2013-12-01

    Spectral calibration of imaging spectrometer plays an important role for acquiring target accurate spectrum. There are two spectral calibration types in essence, the wavelength scanning and characteristic line sampling. Only the calibrated pixel is used for the wavelength scanning methods and he spectral response function (SRF) is constructed by the calibrated pixel itself. The different wavelength can be generated by the monochromator. The SRF is constructed by adjacent pixels of the calibrated one for the characteristic line sampling methods. And the pixels are illuminated by the narrow spectrum line and the center wavelength of the spectral line is exactly known. The calibration result comes from scanning method is precise, but it takes much time and data to deal with. The wavelength scanning method cannot be used in field or space environment. The characteristic line sampling method is simple, but the calibration precision is not easy to confirm. The standard spectroscopic lamp is used to calibrate our manufactured convex grating imaging spectrometer which has Offner concentric structure and can supply high resolution and uniform spectral signal. Gaussian fitting algorithm is used to determine the center position and the Full-Width-Half-Maximum(FWHM)of the characteristic spectrum line. The central wavelengths and FWHMs of spectral pixels are calibrated by cubic polynomial fitting. By setting a fitting error thresh hold and abandoning the maximum deviation point, an optimization calculation is achieved. The integrated calibration experiment equipment for spectral calibration is developed to enhance calibration efficiency. The spectral calibration result comes from spectral lamp method are verified by monochromator wavelength scanning calibration technique. The result shows that spectral calibration uncertainty of FWHM and center wavelength are both less than 0.08nm, or 5.2% of spectral FWHM.

Methods dialectic approach to the cognition of social phenomena allowing to analyze them in their historical development and functioning in the context of the integrity of subjective and objective factors this determines the choice of the research methods systemicstructural formallegal and comparative. Results The first part of this chapter will explain the way in which people in societies different from our own were subject to other motivations in situations where selfinterest would tend to dominate in our society. The reasoning is based on three examples one drawn from the history of Ancient Rome one from the High Middle Ages of the European society and one from a contemporary nonWestern culture. The second part of the chapter analyzes the reason why material selfinterest maximizing became a dominant motivation in the modern Western society. The works on historical sociology attribute this development to Calvinism but this hypothesis suffers from some serious defects. In the article we prove that the modern sensibility resulted from much longeracting trends specifically secularization urbanization and commercialization. The final section of the chapter explores the relationship between the Westrsquos prevailing norm of selfinterest maximization and the particular norms that have been discussed in microeconomic theory. It argues that some of these norms are internal to the prevailing one and are thus explicable in terms of material selfinterest but that others reflect additional norms in the general society that exist alongside and sometimes in competition with the prevailing norm of selfinterest maximization. The historicallybased view that selfinterest maximizing is a prevailing norm rather than a human universal allows these other norms to be acknowledged in a plausible and realistic manner rather than being explained away by a

Using the method of Banach spaces theory, we show that the fc-very extreme convex space is just the duality of fc-very extreme smooth space and lies strictly between fc-uniformly extreme convex spaces and fc-very convex spaces. We obtain some characteristic descriptions of fc-very extreme convex spaces or fc-very extreme smooth space, and study the relation between fc-very extreme convexity (resp. Fc-very extreme smoothness) with various convexity (resp. Various smoothness). The results generalize the very extreme convexity and very extreme smoothness, and perfect the research on fc-very extreme convex space and its dual space.

  17. Fractional norm regularization: learning with very few relevant features.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kaban, Ata

    2013-06-01

    Learning in the presence of a large number of irrelevant features is an important problem in high-dimensional tasks. Previous studies have shown that L1-norm regularization can be effective in such cases while L2-norm regularization is not. Furthermore, work in compressed sensing suggests that regularization by nonconvex (e.g., fractional) semi-norms may outperform L1-regularization. However, for classification it is largely unclear when this may or may not be the case. In addition, the nonconvex problem is harder to solve than the convex L1 problem. In this paper, we provide a more in-depth analysis to elucidate the potential advantages and pitfalls of nonconvex regularization in the context of logistic regression where the regularization term employs the family of Lq semi-norms. First, using results from the phenomenon of concentration of norms and distances in high dimensions, we gain intuition about the working of sparse estimation when the dimensionality is very high. Second, using the probably approximately correct (PAC)-Bayes methodology, we give a data-dependent bound on the generalization error of Lq-regularized logistic regression, which is applicable to any algorithm that implements this model, and may be used to predict its generalization behavior from the training set alone. Third, we demonstrate the usefulness of our approach by experiments and applications, where the PAC-Bayes bound is used to guide the choice of semi-norm in the regularization term. The results support the conclusion that the optimal choice of regularization depends on the relative fraction of relevant versus irrelevant features, and a fractional norm with a small exponent is most suitable when the fraction of relevant features is very small.

  18. The Iterative Reweighted Mixed-Norm Estimate for Spatio-Temporal MEG/EEG Source Reconstruction.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Strohmeier, Daniel; Bekhti, Yousra; Haueisen, Jens; Gramfort, Alexandre

    2016-10-01

    Source imaging based on magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG) allows for the non-invasive analysis of brain activity with high temporal and good spatial resolution. As the bioelectromagnetic inverse problem is ill-posed, constraints are required. For the analysis of evoked brain activity, spatial sparsity of the neuronal activation is a common assumption. It is often taken into account using convex constraints based on the l1-norm. The resulting source estimates are however biased in amplitude and often suboptimal in terms of source selection due to high correlations in the forward model. In this work, we demonstrate that an inverse solver based on a block-separable penalty with a Frobenius norm per block and a l0.5-quasinorm over blocks addresses both of these issues. For solving the resulting non-convex optimization problem, we propose the iterative reweighted Mixed Norm Estimate (irMxNE), an optimization scheme based on iterative reweighted convex surrogate optimization problems, which are solved efficiently using a block coordinate descent scheme and an active set strategy. We compare the proposed sparse imaging method to the dSPM and the RAP-MUSIC approach based on two MEG data sets. We provide empirical evidence based on simulations and analysis of MEG data that the proposed method improves on the standard Mixed Norm Estimate (MxNE) in terms of amplitude bias, support recovery, and stability.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yanhui Li

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper investigates the Hankel norm filter design problem for stochastic time-delay systems, which are represented by Takagi-Sugeno (T-S fuzzy model. Motivated by the parallel distributed compensation (PDC technique, a novel filtering error system is established. The objective is to design a suitable filter that guarantees the corresponding filtering error system to be mean-square asymptotically stable and to have a specified Hankel norm performance level γ. Based on the Lyapunov stability theory and the Itô differential rule, the Hankel norm criterion is first established by adopting the integral inequality method, which can make some useful efforts in reducing conservativeness. The Hankel norm filtering problem is casted into a convex optimization problem with a convex linearization approach, which expresses all the conditions for the existence of admissible Hankel norm filter as standard linear matrix inequalities (LMIs.

    Bucur, Dorin; Lamboley, Jimmy

    2011-01-01

    Motivated by a long-standing conjecture of Polya and Szeg\\"o about the Newtonian capacity of convex bodies, we discuss the role of concavity inequalities in shape optimization, and we provide several counterexamples to the Blaschke-concavity of variational functionals, including capacity. We then introduce a new algebraic structure on convex bodies, which allows to obtain global concavity and indecomposability results, and we discuss their application to isoperimetriclike inequalities. As a byproduct of this approach we also obtain a quantitative version of the Kneser-S\\"uss inequality. Finally, for a large class of functionals involving Dirichlet energies and the surface measure, we perform a local analysis of strictly convex portions of the boundary via second order shape derivatives. This allows in particular to exclude the presence of smooth regions with positive Gauss curvature in an optimal shape for Polya-Szeg\\"o problem.

  1. On the convexity of Relativistic Ideal Magnetohydrodynamics

    CERN Document Server

    Ibáñez, José-María; Aloy, Miguel-Ángel; Martí, José-María; Miralles, Juan-Antonio

    2015-01-01

    We analyze the influence of the magnetic field in the convexity properties of the relativistic magnetohydrodynamics system of equations. To this purpose we use the approach of Lax, based on the analysis of the linearly degenerate/genuinely non-linear nature of the characteristic fields. Degenerate and non-degenerate states are discussed separately and the non-relativistic, unmagnetized limits are properly recovered. The characteristic fields corresponding to the material and Alfv\\'en waves are linearly degenerate and, then, not affected by the convexity issue. The analysis of the characteristic fields associated with the magnetosonic waves reveals, however, a dependence of the convexity condition on the magnetic field. The result is expressed in the form of a generalized fundamental derivative written as the sum of two terms. The first one is the generalized fundamental derivative in the case of purely hydrodynamical (relativistic) flow. The second one contains the effects of the magnetic field. The analysis ...

  2. A generalization of the convex Kakeya problem

    We consider the following geometric alignment problem: Given a set of line segments in the plane, find a convex region of smallest area that contains a translate of each input segment. This can be seen as a generalization of Kakeya\\'s problem of finding a convex region of smallest area such that a needle can be turned through 360 degrees within this region. Our main result is an optimal Θ(n log n)-time algorithm for our geometric alignment problem, when the input is a set of n line segments. We also show that, if the goal is to minimize the perimeter of the region instead of its area, then the optimum placement is when the midpoints of the segments coincide. Finally, we show that for any compact convex figure G, the smallest enclosing disk of G is a smallest-perimeter region containing a translate of any rotated copy of G. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

    Multi-objective robust state-feedback controller synthesis problems for linear discrete-time uncertain systems are addressed. Based on parameter-dependent Lyapunov functions, the Gl2 and GH2 norm expressed in terms of LMI (Linear Matrix Inequality) characterizations are further generalized to cope with the robust analysis for convex polytopic uncertain system.Robust state-feedback controller synthesis conditions are also derived for this class of uncertain systems. Using the above results,multi-objective state-feedback controller synthesis procedures which involve the LMI optimization technique are developed and less conservative than the existing one. An illustrative example verified the validity of the approach.

    International audience; The convex onion-peeling of a set of points is the organization of these points into a sequence of interpolating convex polygons. This method is adequate to detect the shape of the “center” of a set of points when this shape is convex. However it reveals inadequate to detect non-convex shapes. Alternatively, we propose an extension of the convex onion-peeling method. It consists in representing a set of points with a sequence of non-convex polylines which are computed ...

    Our first contribution in this paper is to prove that three natural sum of squares (sos) based sufficient conditions for convexity of polynomials via the definition of convexity, its first order characterization, and its second order characterization are equivalent. These three equivalent algebraic conditions, henceforth referred to as sos-convexity, can be checked by semidefinite programming whereas deciding convexity is NP-hard. If we denote the set of convex and sos-convex polynomials in $n$ variables of degree $d$ with $\\tilde{C}_{n,d}$ and $\\tilde{\\Sigma C}_{n,d}$ respectively, then our main contribution is to prove that $\\tilde{C}_{n,d}=\\tilde{\\Sigma C}_{n,d}$ if and only if $n=1$ or $d=2$ or $(n,d)=(2,4)$. We also present a complete characterization for forms (homogeneous polynomials) except for the case $(n,d)=(3,4)$ which is joint work with G. Blekherman and is to be published elsewhere. Our result states that the set $C_{n,d}$ of convex forms in $n$ variables of degree $d$ equals the set $\\Sigma C_{...

If f:K→K is any contraction map on K and if every nonempty closed convex and bounded subset of K has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings, then it is shown, under appropriate conditions on the sequences of real numbers { α n } , { μ n } , that the iteration process z 1 ∈K , z n+1 = μ n ( α n T z n +( 1− α n z n +( 1− μ n f( z n , n∈ℕ , strongly converges to the fixed point of T , which is the unique solution of some variational inequality, provided that K is bounded.

  12. Best approximation in quotient spaces with application to the finishing of optical surfaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bennett, Therese Lynn

    The finishing of axisymmetric optical surfaces relies upon the use of Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines. Porsching and Hall developed a mathematical model for a general class of such machines, which can be used to generate material removal rates. These removal rates give the amount of material removed at each radial point on the workpiece per unit time. In this thesis, we use these material removal rates to generate two different material removal strategies for Operator Controlled (OC) finishing. Given an initial error profile which is an element of the quotient space C[a, b]IK where K is the space of constant functions, we seek a best approximation to this error profile by elements of a closed convex set. Some other nonstandard features of this best approximation problem are nonnegativity constraints on the variables, the nondifferentiability of the approximating functions, and the fact that the approximating functions do not form a Haar space. We explore best approximation on a quotient space and show that many of the standard existence and uniqueness theorems can be extended. For the first removal strategy, we solve the best approximation problem using the L2-norm, which leads to a quadratic programming problem (QPP). This QPP is solved after first using a modified Gram-Schmidt process to obtain a set of orthogonal removal rates. Our second strategy employs best minimax approximation. Since we do not have a Haar space, the standard characterizations theorems do not apply, although similar theorems are established. Using two definitions of the infinity norm on the quotient space C[a, b]IK, the problem can be reformulated as both a semi-infinite programming problem and as a convex programming problem. Computer programs which implement the least squares algorithm and two minimax algorithms which solve the related convex programming problems are described. Finally, we generate and discuss numerical examples which illustrate the theory and simulate the

    2011-02-01

    The current research investigated the organization of children's face space by examining whether 5- and 8-year-olds show race-contingent aftereffects. Participants read a storybook in which Caucasian and Chinese children's faces were distorted in opposite directions. Before and after adaptation, participants judged the normality/attractiveness of expanded, compressed, and undistorted Caucasian and Chinese faces. The method was validated with adults and then refined to test 8- and 5-year-olds. The 5-year-olds were also tested in a simple aftereffects paradigm. The current research provides the first evidence for simple attractiveness aftereffects in 5-year-olds and for race-contingent aftereffects in both 5- and 8-year-olds. Evidence that adults and 5-year-olds may possess only a weak prototype for Chinese children's faces suggests that Caucasian adults' prototype for Chinese adult faces does not generalize to child faces and that children's face space undergoes a period of increasing differentiation between 5 and 8 years of age.

    Given a set of line segments in the plane, not necessarily finite, what is a convex region of smallest area that contains a translate of each input segment? This question can be seen as a generalization of Kakeya\\'s problem of finding a convex region of smallest area such that a needle can be rotated through 360 degrees within this region. We show that there is always an optimal region that is a triangle, and we give an optimal Θ(nlogn)-time algorithm to compute such a triangle for a given set of n segments. We also show that, if the goal is to minimize the perimeter of the region instead of its area, then placing the segments with their midpoint at the origin and taking their convex hull results in an optimal solution. Finally, we show that for any compact convex figure G, the smallest enclosing disk of G is a smallest-perimeter region containing a translate of every rotated copy of G. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

    CERN Document Server

    Guillemin, Victor

    2005-01-01

    This is a monograph on convexity properties of moment mappings in symplectic geometry. The fundamental result in this subject is the Kirwan convexity theorem, which describes the image of a moment map in terms of linear inequalities. This theorem bears a close relationship to perplexing old puzzles from linear algebra, such as the Horn problem on sums of Hermitian matrices, on which considerable progress has been made in recent years following a breakthrough by Klyachko. The book presents a simple local model for the moment polytope, valid in the "generic&rdquo case, and an elementary Morse-theoretic argument deriving the Klyachko inequalities and some of their generalizations. It reviews various infinite-dimensional manifestations of moment convexity, such as the Kostant type theorems for orbits of a loop group (due to Atiyah and Pressley) or a symplectomorphism group (due to Bloch, Flaschka and Ratiu). Finally, it gives an account of a new convexity theorem for moment map images of orbits of a Borel sub...

    There has been much recent progress in global optimization algo­ rithms for nonconvex continuous and discrete problems from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. Convex analysis plays a fun­ damental role in the analysis and development of global optimization algorithms. This is due essentially to the fact that virtually all noncon­ vex optimization problems can be described using differences of convex functions and differences of convex sets. A conference on Convex Analysis and Global Optimization was held during June 5 -9, 2000 at Pythagorion, Samos, Greece. The conference was honoring the memory of C.

    2012-01-01

    The minimality of the penalization function associated with a convex risk measure is analyzed in this paper. First, in a general static framework, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for a penalty function defined in a convex and closed subset of the absolutely continuous measures with respect to some reference measure $\\mathbb{P}$ to be minimal. When the probability space supports a L\\'{e}vy process, we establish results that guarantee the minimality property of a penalty function described in terms of the coefficients associated with the density processes. The set of densities processes is described and the convergence of its quadratic variation is analyzed.

    The aim of this paper is to develop an efficient algorithm for solving a class of unconstrained nondifferentiable convex optimization problems in finite dimensional spaces. To this end we formulate first its Fenchel dual problem and regularize it in two steps into a differentiable strongly convex one with Lipschitz continuous gradient. The doubly regularized dual problem is then solved via a fast gradient method with the aim of accelerating the resulting convergence scheme. The theoretical results are finally applied to an l1 regularization problem arising in image processing.

  8. Fast approximate convex decomposition using relative concavity

    KAUST Repository

    Ghosh, Mukulika

    2013-02-01

    Approximate convex decomposition (ACD) is a technique that partitions an input object into approximately convex components. Decomposition into approximately convex pieces is both more efficient to compute than exact convex decomposition and can also generate a more manageable number of components. It can be used as a basis of divide-and-conquer algorithms for applications such as collision detection, skeleton extraction and mesh generation. In this paper, we propose a new method called Fast Approximate Convex Decomposition (FACD) that improves the quality of the decomposition and reduces the cost of computing it for both 2D and 3D models. In particular, we propose a new strategy for evaluating potential cuts that aims to reduce the relative concavity, rather than absolute concavity. As shown in our results, this leads to more natural and smaller decompositions that include components for small but important features such as toes or fingers while not decomposing larger components, such as the torso, that may have concavities due to surface texture. Second, instead of decomposing a component into two pieces at each step, as in the original ACD, we propose a new strategy that uses a dynamic programming approach to select a set of n c non-crossing (independent) cuts that can be simultaneously applied to decompose the component into n c+1 components. This reduces the depth of recursion and, together with a more efficient method for computing the concavity measure, leads to significant gains in efficiency. We provide comparative results for 2D and 3D models illustrating the improvements obtained by FACD over ACD and we compare with the segmentation methods in the Princeton Shape Benchmark by Chen et al. (2009) [31]. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Dickerson, M. [Middlebury College, VT (United States); Scharstein, D. [Cornell Univ., Ithaca, NY (United States)

    1996-12-31

    Given a convex polygon P with m vertices and a set S of n points in the plane, we consider the problem of finding a placement of P that contains the maximum number of points in S. We allow both translation and rotation. Our algorithm is self-contained and utilizes the geometric properties of the containing regions in the parameter space of transformations. The algorithm requires O(nk{sup 2} m{sup 2} log(mk)) time and O(n + m) space, where k is the maximum number of points contained. This provides a linear improvement over the best previously known algorithm when k is large ({Theta}(n)) and a cubic improvement when k is small. We also show that the algorithm can be extended to solve bichromatic and general weighted variants of the problem.

    The channel network (S) is a nonconvex set, while its basin [C(S)] is convex. We remove open-end points of the channel connectivity network iteratively to generate a traveltime sequence of networks (Sn). The convex hulls of these traveltime networks provide an interesting topological quantity, which has not been noted thus far. We compute lengths of shrinking traveltime networks L(Sn) and areas of corresponding convex hulls C(Sn), the ratios of which provide convexity measures CM(Sn) of traveltime networks. A statistically significant scaling relationship is found for a model network in the form L(Sn) ˜ A[C(Sn)]0.57. From the plots of the lengths of these traveltime networks and the areas of their corresponding convex hulls as functions of convexity measures, new power law relations are derived. Such relations for a model network are CM(Sn) ˜ ? and CM(Sn) ˜ ?. In addition to the model study, these relations for networks derived from seven subbasins of Cameron Highlands region of Peninsular Malaysia are provided. Further studies are needed on a large number of channel networks of distinct sizes and topologies to understand the relationships of these new exponents with other scaling exponents that define the scaling structure of river networks.

    Qin, Sitian; Xue, Xiaoping

    2015-06-01

    In this paper, a two-layer recurrent neural network is proposed to solve the nonsmooth convex optimization problem subject to convex inequality and linear equality constraints. Compared with existing neural network models, the proposed neural network has a low model complexity and avoids penalty parameters. It is proved that from any initial point, the state of the proposed neural network reaches the equality feasible region in finite time and stays there thereafter. Moreover, the state is unique if the initial point lies in the equality feasible region. The equilibrium point set of the proposed neural network is proved to be equivalent to the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker optimality set of the original optimization problem. It is further proved that the equilibrium point of the proposed neural network is stable in the sense of Lyapunov. Moreover, from any initial point, the state is proved to be convergent to an equilibrium point of the proposed neural network. Finally, as applications, the proposed neural network is used to solve nonlinear convex programming with linear constraints and L1 -norm minimization problems.

This paper exploits the higher-order generalization of matrix recovery, named higher-order principal component pursuit (HOPCP), since it is critical in multi-way data analysis. Unlike the convexification (nuclear norm) for matrix rank function, the tensorial nuclear norm is stil an open problem. While existing preliminary works on the tensor completion field provide a viable way to indicate the low complexity estimate of tensor, therefore, the paper focuses on the low multi-linear rank tensor and adopt its convex relaxation to formulate the convex optimization model of HOPCP. The paper further propose two algorithms for HOPCP based on alternative minimization scheme: the augmented Lagrangian alternating di-rection method (ALADM) and its truncated higher-order singular value decomposition (ALADM-THOSVD) version. The former can obtain a high accuracy solution while the latter is more efficient to handle the computational y intractable problems. Experimental re-sults on both synthetic data and real magnetic resonance imaging data show the applicability of our algorithms in high-dimensional tensor data processing.

  19. A New Interpolation Approach for Linearly Constrained Convex Optimization

    KAUST Repository

    Espinoza, Francisco

    2012-08-01

    In this thesis we propose a new class of Linearly Constrained Convex Optimization methods based on the use of a generalization of Shepard\\'s interpolation formula. We prove the properties of the surface such as the interpolation property at the boundary of the feasible region and the convergence of the gradient to the null space of the constraints at the boundary. We explore several descent techniques such as steepest descent, two quasi-Newton methods and the Newton\\'s method. Moreover, we implement in the Matlab language several versions of the method, particularly for the case of Quadratic Programming with bounded variables. Finally, we carry out performance tests against Matab Optimization Toolbox methods for convex optimization and implementations of the standard log-barrier and active-set methods. We conclude that the steepest descent technique seems to be the best choice so far for our method and that it is competitive with other standard methods both in performance and empirical growth order.

  20. Rationally convex sets on the unit sphere in ℂ2

    Let X be a rationally convex compact subset of the unit sphere S in ℂ2, of three-dimensional measure zero. Denote by R( X) the uniform closure on X of the space of functions P/ Q, where P and Q are polynomials and Q≠0 on X. When does R( X)= C( X)? Our work makes use of the kernel function for the bar{δ}b operator on S, introduced by Henkin in [5] and builds on results obtained in Anderson Izzo Wermer [3]. We define a real-valued function ɛ X on the open unit ball int B, with ɛ X ( z, w) tending to 0 as ( z, w) tends to X. We give a growth condition on ɛ X ( z, w) as ( z, w) approaches X, and show that this condition is sufficient for R( X)= C( X) (Theorem 1.1). In Section 4, we consider a class of sets X which are limits of a family of Levi-flat hypersurfaces in int B. For each compact set Y in ℂ2, we denote the rationally convex hull of Y by widehat{Y}. A general reference is Rudin [8] or Aleksandrov [1].

    Full Text Available Suppose that C is a nonempty closed convex subset of a real reflexive Banach space E which has a uniformly Gateaux differentiable norm. A viscosity iterative process is constructed in this paper. A strong convergence theorem is proved for a common element of the set of fixed points of a finite family of pseudocontractive mappings and the set of solutions of a finite family of monotone mappings. And the common element is the unique solution of certain variational inequality. The results presented in this paper extend most of the results that have been proposed for this class of nonlinear mappings.

  2. Norms for environmentally responsible behaviour

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Thøgersen, John

    The currently used concept of personal or moral norms is ambiguous with regard to its motivational content. Therefore, a revision of the norm taxonomy is suggested, implying a distinction between three types of personal norms, called introjected, identified, and integrated norms. A preliminary...... assessment of the taxonomy is carried out based of a survey of a random sample of Danish residents 18 years or older. A range of norm constructs were measured with regard to four environmentally relevant behaviours: buying organic milk, buying energy saving light bulbs, source-separating compostable kitchen...... is also supported, with the reservation that the different behavioural references are more than just different methods of measuring the same latent construct(s). People evidently hold different norms for different environmentally responsible behaviours....

    1988-01-01

    Full Text Available If each sequence converging to 0 in a locally convex space is also Mackey convergent to 0, that space is said to satisfy the Mackey convergence condition. The problem of characterizing those locally convex spaces with this property is still open. In this paper, spaces with compatible webs are used to construct both a necessary and a sufficient condition for a locally convex space to satisfy the Mackey convergence condition.

    Yang, Fan; Jian, Zhen; Li, Erqiang; Thoroddsen, S. T.

    2015-11-01

    We study the coalescence of two convex surfaces of the same liquid. One of the convex free surfaces is formed at a circular opening of a closed tank by imposing a negative pressure difference. The other surface is a droplet of larger curvature, which is pendant from a concentric nozzle. The coalescence starts from near-zero velocity, so the configuration can be characterized by two dimensionless numbers: the Ohnesorge number Oh = μ /√{ ργL } and the radius ratio between the two surfaces α =rd /rs . We use high-speed video, PIV and numerical simulations, using the Gerris program, to study the dynamics of the coalescence. Our focus is on the interface shapes, the growth-rate of the neck connecting the two surfaces and the formation of a vortex ring. The growth-rate is compared to earlier models for the coalescence of drops or bubbles.

  5. Convex Modeling of Interactions with Strong Heredity

    Haris, Asad; Witten, Daniela; Simon, Noah

    2015-01-01

    We consider the task of fitting a regression model involving interactions among a potentially large set of covariates, in which we wish to enforce strong heredity. We propose FAMILY, a very general framework for this task. Our proposal is a generalization of several existing methods, such as VANISH [Radchenko and James, 2010], hierNet [Bien et al., 2013], the all-pairs lasso, and the lasso using only main effects. It can be formulated as the solution to a convex optimization problem, which we solve using an efficient alternating directions method of multipliers (ADMM) algorithm. This algorithm has guaranteed convergence to the global optimum, can be easily specialized to any convex penalty function of interest, and allows for a straightforward extension to the setting of generalized linear models. We derive an unbiased estimator of the degrees of freedom of FAMILY, and explore its performance in a simulation study and on an HIV sequence data set. PMID:28316461

  6. Convex Arrhenius plots and their interpretation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Truhlar, Donald G.; Kohen, Amnon

    2001-01-01

    This paper draws attention to selected experiments on enzyme-catalyzed reactions that show convex Arrhenius plots, which are very rare, and points out that Tolman's interpretation of the activation energy places a fundamental model-independent constraint on any detailed explanation of these reactions. The analysis presented here shows that in such systems, the rate coefficient as a function of energy is not just increasing more slowly than expected, it is actually decreasing. This interpretation of the data provides a constraint on proposed microscopic models, i.e., it requires that any successful model of a reaction with a convex Arrhenius plot should be consistent with the microcanonical rate coefficient being a decreasing function of energy. The implications and limitations of this analysis to interpreting enzyme mechanisms are discussed. This model-independent conclusion has broad applicability to all fields of kinetics, and we also draw attention to an analogy with diffusion in metastable fluids and glasses. PMID:11158559

    The relativistic hydrodynamic system of equations for a perfect fluid obeying a causal equation of state is hyperbolic (Anile 1989 {\\it Relativistic Fluids and Magneto-Fluids} (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press)). In this report, we derive the conditions for this system to be convex in terms of the fundamental derivative of the equation of state (Menikoff and Plohr 1989 {\\it Rev. Mod. Phys.} {\\bf 61} 75). The classical limit is recovered.

    The three chapters of this book are entitled Basic Concepts, Tensor Norms, and Special Topics. The first may serve as part of an introductory course in Functional Analysis since it shows the powerful use of the projective and injective tensor norms, as well as the basics of the theory of operator ideals. The second chapter is the main part of the book: it presents the theory of tensor norms as designed by Grothendieck in the Resumé and deals with the relation between tensor norms and operator ideals. The last chapter deals with special questions. Each section is accompanied by a series of exer

    2009-01-01

    A principal wishes to transact business with a multidimensional distribution of agents whose preferences are known only in the aggregate. Assuming a twist (= generalized Spence-Mirrlees single-crossing) hypothesis and that agents can choose only pure strategies, we identify a structural condition on the preference b(x,y) of agent type x for product type y -- and on the principal's costs c(y) -- which is necessary and sufficient for reducing the profit maximization problem faced by the principal to a convex program. This is a key step toward making the principal's problem theoretically and computationally tractable; in particular, it allows us to derive uniqueness and stability of the principal's optimum strategy -- and similarly of the strategy maximizing the expected welfare of the agents when the principal's profitability is constrained. We call this condition non-negative cross-curvature: it is also (i) necessary and sufficient to guarantee convexity of the set of b-convex functions, (ii) invariant under r...

  12. Convexity at finite temperature and non-extensive thermodynamics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Alexandre, J.

    2016-09-01

    Assuming that tunnel effect between two degenerate bare minima occurs, in a scalar field theory at finite volume, this article studies the consequences for the effective potential, to all loop orders. Convexity is achieved only if the two bare minima are taken into account in the path integral, and a new derivation of the effective potential is given, in the large volume limit. The effective potential then has a universal form, it is suppressed by the space time volume, and does not feature spontaneous symmetry breaking as long as the volume is finite. The finite temperature analysis leads to surprising thermal properties, following from the non-extensive expression for the free energy. Although the physical relevance of these results is not clear, the potential application to ultra-light scalar particles is discussed.

  13. Entropies from Coarse-graining: Convex Polytopes vs. Ellipsoids

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nikos Kalogeropoulos

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available We examine the Boltzmann/Gibbs/Shannon SBGS and the non-additive Havrda-Charvát/Daróczy/Cressie-Read/Tsallis Sq and the Kaniadakis κ-entropy Sκ from the viewpoint of coarse-graining, symplectic capacities and convexity. We argue that the functional form of such entropies can be ascribed to a discordance in phase-space coarse-graining between two generally different approaches: the Euclidean/Riemannian metric one that reflects independence and picks cubes as the fundamental cells in coarse-graining and the symplectic/canonical one that picks spheres/ellipsoids for this role. Our discussion is motivated by and confined to the behaviour of Hamiltonian systems of many degrees of freedom. We see that Dvoretzky’s theorem provides asymptotic estimates for the minimal dimension beyond which these two approaches are close to each other. We state and speculate about the role that dualities may play in this viewpoint.

  18. Mutational analysis a joint framework for Cauchy problems in and beyond vector spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Lorenz, Thomas

    2010-01-01

    Ordinary differential equations play a central role in science and have been extended to evolution equations in Banach spaces. For many applications, however, it is difficult to specify a suitable normed vector space. Shapes without a priori restrictions, for example, do not have an obvious linear structure. This book generalizes ordinary differential equations beyond the borders of vector spaces with a focus on the well-posed Cauchy problem in finite time intervals. Here are some of the examples: - Feedback evolutions of compact subsets of the Euclidean space - Birth-and-growth processes of random sets (not necessarily convex) - Semilinear evolution equations - Nonlocal parabolic differential equations - Nonlinear transport equations for Radon measures - A structured population model - Stochastic differential equations with nonlocal sample dependence and how they can be coupled in systems immediately - due to the joint framework of Mutational Analysis. Finally, the book offers new tools for modelling.

In this short note, we discuss the norm of UA,B. We show that if and ||UA,B||=||A||||B||, then either AB* or B*A is 0. We give some examples of Jordan elementary operators UA,B such that ||UA,B||=||A||||B|| but AB*[not equal to]0 and B*A[not equal to]0, which answer negatively a question posed by M. Boumazgour in [M. Boumazgour, Norm inequalities for sums of two basic elementary operators, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 342 (2008) 386-393].

  20. Inductive limits and geometry of Banach spaces

    Science.gov (United States)

    Taskinen, Jari

    1999-01-01

    One of the main problems in the theory of inductive limits of Banach spaces is the projective description problem, finding a reasonable representation for the continuous seminorms. The problem is nontrivial even in the simplest cases. Recall that given, for example, an increasing sequence of Banach spaces (Yk)[infty infinity]k=1 with continuous embeddings Yk[hookrightarrow A: rt arrow-hooked]Yk+1 the inductive limit is the space Y=[cup B: union or logical sum]kYk endowed with the finest locally convex topology [tau] such that every embedding Yk[hookrightarrow A: rt arrow-hooked](Y, [tau]) becomes continuous. It is possible to give abstract definitions for families of continuous seminorms generating the topology [tau], but the connection with the norms of the step spaces Yk is not necessarily very close. For example, if the spaces Yk are Banach spaces of continuous functions endowed with weighted sup-norms, it is not clear if the continuous seminorms of the inductive limit are of the same type.We mention that inductive limits of spaces of continuous and holomorphic functions occur in many areas of analysis like linear partial differential operators, convolution equations [BD1], [E], complex and Fourier analysis and distribution theory. The projective description problem in these spaces has been thoroughly studied in [BMS1, BB1, BB2, BB3, BT, BM1, BM2], to mention some examples. We refer to the survey articles [BM1,BMS2, BB3]. The present work is also connected with the factorization problems which are treated in the book [Ju].

An appendix is devoted to convexity and completeness in Finsler manifolds. For students and researchers in such diverse fields as pu...

  2. Asymptotic Performance of Sparse Signal Detection Using Convex Programming Method

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    LEI Chuan; ZHANG Jun

    2012-01-01

    The detection of sparse signals against background noise is considered.Detecting signals of such kind is difficult since only a small portion of the signal carries information.Prior knowledge is usually assumed to ease detection.In this paper,we consider the general unknown and arbitrary sparse signal detection problem when no prior knowledge is available.Under a Neyman-Pearson hypothesis-testing framework,a new detection scheme is proposed by combining a generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT)-like test statistic and convex programming methods which directly exploit sparsity in an underdetermined system of linear equations.We characterize large sample behavior of the proposed method by analyzing its asymptotic performance.Specifically,we give the condition for the Chernoff-consistent detection which shows that the proposed method is very sensitive to the (e)2 norm energy of the sparse signals.Both the false alarm rate and the miss rate tend to zero at vanishing signal-to-noise ratio (SNR),as long as the signal energy grows at least logarithmically with the problem dimension.Next we give a large deviation analysis to characterize the error exponent for the Neyman-Pearson detection.We derive the oracle error exponent assuming signal knowledge.Then we explicitly derive the error exponent of the proposed scheme and compare it with the oracle exponent.We complement our study with numerical experiments,showing that the proposed method performs in the vicinity of the likelihood ratio test (LRT) method in the finite sample scenario and the error probability degrades exponentially with the number of observations.

    Full Text Available Integral representations of the locally defined star-generalized surface content measures on star spheres are derived for boundary spheres of balls being convex or radially concave with respect to a fan in Rn. As a result, the general geometric measure representation of star-shaped probability distributions and the general stochastic representation of the corresponding random vectors allow additional specific interpretations in the two mentioned cases. Applications to estimating and testing hypotheses on scaling parameters are presented, and two-dimensional sample clouds are simulated.

    2011-01-01

    The mean width is a measure on three-dimensional convex bodies that enjoys equal status with volume and surface area [Rota]. As the phrase suggests, it is the mean of a probability density f. We verify formulas for mean widths of the regular tetrahedron and the cube. Higher-order moments of f_tetra and f_cube have not been examined until now. Assume that each polyhedron has edges of unit length. We deduce that the mean square width of the regular tetrahedron is 1/3+(3+sqrt(3))/(3*pi) and the mean square width of the cube is 1+4/pi.

    Full Text Available Abstract A real-valued continuous function on an interval gives rise to a map via functional calculus from the convex set of Hermitian matrices all of whose eigenvalues belong to the interval. Since the subpace of Hermitian matrices is provided with the order structure induced by the cone of positive semidefinite matrices, one can consider convexity of this map. We will characterize its convexity by the following trace-inequalities: for . A related topic will be also discussed.

We showed that a convex universal cover for a unit length curve has area at least 0.232239. In addition, we show that a convex universal cover for a unit closed curve has area at least 0.0879873.

  7. Restricted strong convexity and weighted matrix completion: Optimal bounds with noise

    CERN Document Server

    Negahban, Sahand

    2010-01-01

    We consider the matrix completion problem under a form of row/column weighted entrywise sampling, including the case of uniform entrywise sampling as a special case. We analyze the associated random observation operator, and prove that with high probability, it satisfies a form of restricted strong convexity with respect to weighted Frobenius norm. Using this property, we obtain as corollaries a number of error bounds on matrix completion in the weighted Frobenius norm under noisy sampling and for both exact and near low-rank matrices. Our results are based on measures of the "spikiness" and "low-rankness" of matrices that are less restrictive than the incoherence conditions imposed in previous work. Our technique involves an $M$-estimator that includes controls on both the rank and spikiness of the solution, and we establish non-asymptotic error bounds in weighted Frobenius norm for recovering matrices lying with $\\ell_q$-"balls" of bounded spikiness. Using information-theoretic methods, we show that no algo...

    For the affine distance d(C,D)between two convex bodies C,D(∈)Rn,which reduces to the Banach-Mazur distance for symmetric convex bodies, the bounds of d(C,D)have been studied for many years. Some well known estimates for the upper-bounds are as follows: F. John proved d(C,D)≤n1/2 if one is an ellipsoid and another is symmetric,d(C,D)≤n if both are symmetric, and fromF. John's result and d(C1,C2)≤d(C1,C3)d(C2,C3) one has d(C,D)≤n2 for general convex bodies;M.Lassak proved d(C,D)≤(2n-1) if one of them is symmetric.In this paper we get an estimate which includes all the results above as special cases and refines some of them in terms of measures of asymmetry for convex bodies.

  9. Stable anisotropic plasma confinement in magnetic configurations with convex-concave field lines

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tsventoukh, M. M.

    2014-02-01

    It is shown that a combination of the convex and the concave part of a field line provides a strong stabilizing action against convective (flute-interchange) plasma instability (Tsventoukh 2011 Nucl. Fusion 51 112002). This results in internal peaking of the stable plasma pressure profile that is calculated from the collisionless kinetic stability criterion for any magnetic confinement system with combination of mirrors and cusps. Connection of the convex and concave field line parts results in a reduction of the space charge that drives the unstable E × B motion, as there is an opposite direction of the particle drift in a non-uniform field at convex and concave field lines. The pressure peaking arises at the minimum of the second adiabatic invariant J that takes place at the ‘middle’ of a tandem mirror-cusp transverse cross-section. The position of the minimum in J varies with the particle pitch angle that results in a shift of the peaking position depending on plasma anisotropy. This allows one to improve a stable peaked pressure profile at a convex-concave field by changing the plasma anisotropy over the trap cross-section. Examples of such anisotropic distribution functions are found that give an additional substantial enhancement in the maximal central pressure. Furthermore, the shape of new calculated stable profiles has a wide central plasma layer instead of a narrow peak.

  10. Error bound results for convex inequality systems via conjugate duality

    CERN Document Server

    Bot, Radu Ioan

    2010-01-01

    The aim of this paper is to implement some new techniques, based on conjugate duality in convex optimization, for proving the existence of global error bounds for convex inequality systems. We deal first of all with systems described via one convex inequality and extend the achieved results, by making use of a celebrated scalarization function, to convex inequality systems expressed by means of a general vector function. We also propose a second approach for guaranteeing the existence of global error bounds of the latter, which meanwhile sharpens the classical result of Robinson.

    Shi Sheng ZHANG; Chi Kin CHAN; H.W. JOSEPH LEE

    2012-01-01

    The purpose of this paper is by using the modified block iterative method to propose an algorithm for finding a common element in the intersection of the set of common fixed points of an infinite family of quasi-φ-asymptotically nonexpansive and the set of solutions to an equilibrium problem and the set of solutions to a variational inequality.Under suitable conditions some strong convergence theorems are established in 2-uniformly convex and uniformly smooth Banach spaces.As applications we utilize the results presented in the paper to solving the convex feasibility problem (CFP) and zero point problem of maximal monotone mappings in Banach spaces.The results presented in the paper improve and extend the corresponding results announced by many authors.

    Didenkulova, Ira; Soomere, Tarmo

    2008-01-01

    Long linear wave transformation in the basin of varying depth is studied for a case of a convex bottom profile in the framework of one-dimensional shallow water equation. The existence of travelling wave solutions in this geometry and the uniqueness of this wave class is established through construction of a 1:1 transformation of the general 1D wave equation to the analogous wave equation with constant coefficients. The general solution of the Cauchy problem consists of two travelling waves propagating in opposite directions. It is found that generally a zone of a weak current is formed between these two waves. Waves are reflected from the coastline so that their profile is inverted with respect to the calm water surface. Long wave runup on a beach with this profile is studied for sine pulse, KdV soliton and N-wave. Shown is that in certain cases the runup height along the convex profile is considerably larger than for beaches with a linear slope. The analysis of wave reflection from the bottom containing a s...

    Gabriel, Adrian T; Meyer, Timm; Germano, Guido

    2008-03-01

    Coarse-grained modeling of molecular fluids is often based on nonspherical convex rigid bodies like ellipsoids or spherocylinders representing rodlike or platelike molecules or groups of atoms, with site-site interaction potentials depending both on the distance among the particles and the relative orientation. In this category of potentials, the Gay-Berne family has been studied most extensively. However, conventional molecular graphics programs are not designed to visualize such objects. Usually the basic units are atoms displayed as spheres or as vertices in a graph. Atomic aggregates can be highlighted through an increasing amount of stylized representations, e.g., Richardson ribbon diagrams for the secondary structure of proteins, Connolly molecular surfaces, density maps, etc., but ellipsoids and spherocylinders are generally missing, especially as elementary simulation units. We fill this gap providing and discussing a customized OpenGL-based program for the interactive, rendered representation of large ensembles of convex bodies, useful especially in liquid crystal research. We pay particular attention to the performance issues for typical system sizes in this field. The code is distributed as open source.

Technologically Enhanced naturally occuring radioactive material includes any radionuclides whose physical, chemical, radiological properties or radionuclide concentration have been altered from their natural state. With regard to NORM in particular, radioactive contamination is radioactive material in an undesired location. This is a concern in a range of industries: petroleum; uranium mining; phosphorus and phosphates; fertilizers; fossil fuels; forestry products; water treatment; metal mining and processing; geothermal energy. The author discusses in more detail the problem in the petroleum industry, including the isotopes of concern, the hazards they present, the contamination which they cause, ways to dispose of contaminated materials, and regulatory issues. He points out there are three key programs to reduce legal exposure and problems due to these contaminants: waste minimization; NORM assesment (surveys); NORM compliance (training).

    Bach, Francis

    2007-01-01

    Regularization by the sum of singular values, also referred to as the trace norm, is a popular technique for estimating low rank rectangular matrices. In this paper, we extend some of the consistency results of the Lasso to provide necessary and sufficient conditions for rank consistency of trace norm minimization with the square loss. We also provide an adaptive version that is rank consistent even when the necessary condition for the non adaptive version is not fulfilled.

    2017-01-01

    This paper argues that Intergovernmental Organisations (IGOs) can play a significant role in the processes of system transformation required by Grand Challenges. The reason is their potential to influence socio-technical regimes connected to policy areas in which they have authority. Supported...... public and private actors, IGOs implement and protect novel practices that reinforce the new norms, from legally binding agreements to the creation of new spaces for international collaboration. These processes are examined here in the field of global health, where outside pressure directed...

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available We introduce a modified block hybrid projection algorithm for solving the convex feasibility problems for an infinite family of closed and uniformly quasi-ϕ-asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and the set of solutions of the generalized equilibrium problems. We obtain a strong convergence theorem for the sequences generated by this process in a uniformly smooth and strictly convex Banach space with Kadec-Klee property. The results presented in this paper improve and extend some recent results.

  1. The uniqueness-of-norm problem for Calkin algebras

    OpenAIRE

    Skillicorn, Richard

    2015-01-01

    We examine the question of whether the Calkin algebra of a Banach space must have a unique complete algebra norm. We present a survey of known results, and make the observation that a recent Banach space construction of Argyros and Motakis (preprint, 2015) provides the first negative answer. The parallel question for the weak Calkin algebra also has a negative answer; we demonstrate this using a Banach space of Read (J. London Math. Soc. 1989).

    Full Text Available A C1 convex surface data interpolation scheme is presented to preserve the shape of scattered data arranged over a triangular grid. Bernstein–Bézier quartic function is used for interpolation. Lower bound of the boundary and inner Bézier ordinates is determined to guarantee convexity of surface. The developed scheme is flexible and involves more relaxed constraints.

    In the present paper infinitesimal nonrigidity of a class of convex surfaces with planar boundary is given. This result shows that if the image of the Gauss map of an evolution convex surface with planar boundary covers some hemisphere, this surface may be of infinitesimal nonrigidity for the isometric deformation of planar boundary.

    Full Text Available In this paper we investigate some extensions of sufficient conditions for meromorphic multivalent functions in the open unit disk to be meromorphic multivalent starlike and convex of order α. Our results unify and extend some starlikeness and convexity conditions for meromorphic multivalent functions obtained by Xu et al. [2], and some interesting special cases are given.

  11. PhaseLift: Exact and Stable Signal Recovery from Magnitude Measurements via Convex Programming

    CERN Document Server

    Candes, Emmanuel J; Voroninski, Vladislav

    2011-01-01

    Suppose we wish to recover a signal x in C^n from m intensity measurements of the form ||^2, i = 1, 2,..., m; that is, from data in which phase information is missing. We prove that if the vectors z_i are sampled independently and uniformly at random on the unit sphere, then the signal x can be recovered exactly (up to a global phase factor) by solving a convenient semidefinite program---a trace-norm minimization problem; this holds with large probability provided that m is on the order of n log n, and without any assumption about the signal whatsoever. This novel result demonstrates that in some instances, the combinatorial phase retrieval problem can be solved by convex programming techniques. Finally, we also prove that our methodology is robust vis a vis additive noise.

  12. Convex Set Theory for Reliability Assessment of Steel Beam with Bounded Uncertainty

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Li-Zhe Jia; Yi-Ming Duan

    2014-01-01

    Probabilistic reliability model established by insufficient data is inaccessible. The convex model was applied to model the uncertainties of variables. A new non-probabilistic reliability model was proposed based on the robustness of system to uncertainty. The non-probabilistic reliability model, the infinite norm model, and the probabilistic model were used to assess the reliability of a steel beam, respectively. The results show that the resistance is allowed to couple with the action effect in the non-probabilistic reliability model. Additionally, the non-probabilistic reliability model becomes the same accurate as probabilistic model with the increase of the bounded uncertain information. The model is decided by the available data and information.

  13. Waardes as norme en as meta-norme/beginsels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    P. J. Van Niekerk

    1987-03-01

    Full Text Available The fruitfulness and the necessity of the distinction between values and norms and as principles are investigated by way of the theory of political development, the legal philosophical issue surrounding natural law and positivism and the views of Habermas. In political developmental theory questions centring on value gained legitimate relevancy under the influ­ ence of the post-behaviorist approach. The quest for cultural universalia or values as principles became important in this sphere because it seems to be the only way to escape from the syndrome of modernity. Through the rejection of the oppositions and one-sidedness of legal positivism and natural law and with the aid of the distinction between values, norms and principles the productive contribution of this spurious dilemma is high­ lighted and a clearer delineation is given of the concepts legal develop­ ment and structural violence. In conclusion Habermas's distinction between norms and meta-norms is investigated critically and immanent contradictions in his views are pointed out. The central place which this issue has in his thought can be seen as a confirmation of the importance of this distinction. It is relevant for all the normative disciplines which - in contrast to the natural sciences - focus on the role of linguistic, social, ethical, legal and artistic norms valid for human societies.

  14. The inverse moment problem for convex polytopes

    CERN Document Server

    Gravin, Nick; Pasechnik, Dmitrii; Robins, Sinai

    2011-01-01

    The goal of this paper is to present a general and novel approach for the reconstruction of any convex d-dimensional polytope P, from knowledge of its moments. In particular, we show that the vertices of an N-vertex polytope in R^d can be reconstructed from the knowledge of O(DN) axial moments (w.r.t. to an unknown polynomial measure od degree D) in d+1 distinct generic directions. Our approach is based on the collection of moment formulas due to Brion, Lawrence, Khovanskii-Pukhikov, and Barvinok that arise in the discrete geometry of polytopes, and what variously known as Prony's method, or Vandermonde factorization of finite rank Hankel matrices.

    This article presents some new results on the class SLMα of functions that are analytic in the open unit discu ={z:[z[< 1} satisfying the conditions that f(0)=0,f'(0)=1,and α (1+ zf"(z)/f'(z)) + (1-α)zf'(z)/f(x) ∈(p)(u)for all z ∈ u,where α is a real number and (p)(z) =1 + τ2z2/ 1-τz-τ2z2 (z ∈ u).The number τ =(1-√5)/2 is such that τ2 =1 + T.The class SLMα introduced by J.Dziok,R.K.Raina,and J.Sokól [3,Appl.Math.Comput.218 (2011),996-1002] is closely related to the classes of starlike and convex functions.The article deals with several ideas and techniques used in geometric function theory and differential subordinations theory.

    It is shown how size distributions of arbitrarily oriented, convex, non-overlapping particles extracted from conventional transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images may be determined by a variation of the Schwartz-Saltykov method. In TEM, particles cut at the surfaces have diminished projections, which alter the observed size distribution. We represent this distribution as a vector and multiply it with the inverse of a matrix comprising thickness-dependent Scheil or Schwartz-Saltykov terms. The result is a corrected size distribution of the projections of uncut particles. It is shown how the real (3D) distribution may be estimated when particle shape is considered. Computer code to generate the matrix is given. A log-normal distribution of spheres and a real distribution of pill-box-shaped dispersoids in an Al-Mg-Si alloy are given as examples. The errors are discussed in detail.

  17. Weighted composition operators and locally convex algebras

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Edoardo Vesentini

    2005-01-01

    The Gleason-Kahane-Zelazko theorem characterizes the continuous homomorphism of an associative, locally multiplicatively convex, sequentially complete algebra A into the field C among all linear forms on A. This characterization will be applied along two different directions. In the case in which A is a commutative Banach algebra, the theorem yields the representation of some classes of continuous linear maps A: A → A as weighted composition operators, or as composition operators when A is a continuous algebra endomorphism. The theorem will then be applied to explore the behaviour of continuous linear forms on quasi-regular elements, when A is either the algebra of all Hilbert-Schmidt operators or a Hilbert algebra.

    Support vector clustering (SVC) is an important boundary-based clustering algorithm in multiple applications for its capability of handling arbitrary cluster shapes. However,SVC's popularity is degraded by its highly intensive time complexity and poor label performance.To overcome such problems,we present a novel efficient and robust convex decomposition based cluster labeling (CDCL) method based on the topological property of dataset.The CDCL decomposes the implicit cluster into convex hulls and each one is comprised by a subset of support vectors (SVs).According to a robust algorithm applied in the nearest neighboring convex hulls,the adjacency matrix of convex hulls is built up for finding the connected components; and the remaining data points would be assigned the label of the nearest convex hull appropriately.The approach's validation is guaranteed by geometric proofs.Time complexity analysis and comparative experiments suggest that CDCL improves both the efficiency and clustering quality significantly.

    2008-01-01

    Neyman-Pearson classification has been studied in several articles before.But they all proceeded in the classes of indicator functions with indicator function as the loss function,which make the calculation to be difficult.This paper investigates NeymanPearson classification with convex loss function in the arbitrary class of real measurable functions.A general condition is given under which Neyman-Pearson classification with convex loss function has the same classifier as that with indicator loss function.We give analysis to NP-ERM with convex loss function and prove it's performance guarantees.An example of complexity penalty pair about convex loss function risk in terms of Rademacher averages is studied,which produces a tight PAC bound of the NP-ERM with convex loss function.

  20. Introducing convex layers to the Traveling Salesman Problem

    CERN Document Server

    Liew, Sing

    2012-01-01

    In this paper, we will propose convex layers to the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). Firstly, we will focus on human performance on the TSP. Experimental data shows that untrained humans appear to have the ability to perform well in the TSP. On the other hand, experimental data also supports the hypothesis of convex hull i.e. human relies on convex hull to search for the optimal tour for the TSP. Secondly, from the paper published by Bonabeau, Dorigo and Theraulaz, social insect behavior would be able to help in some of the optimizing problems, especially the TSP. Thus, we propose convex layers to the TSP based on the argument that, by the analogy to the social insect behavior, untrained humans' cognition should be able to help in the TSP. Lastly, we will use Tour Improvement algorithms on convex layers to search for an optimal tour for a 13-cities problem to demonstrate the idea.
