    2012-01-01

    We establish an $L^1$-estimate to validate the weakly nonlinear geometric optics for entropy solutions of nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws with arbitrary initial data of small bounded variation. This implies that the simpler geometric optics expansion function can be employed to study the properties of general entropy solutions to hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. Our analysis involves new techniques which rely on the structure of the approximate equations, besides the properties of the wave-front tracking algorithm and the standard semigroup estimates.

    2001-01-01

    The propagation of curved, nonlinear wavefronts and shock fronts are very complex phenomena. Since the 1993 publication of his work Propagation of a Curved Shock and Nonlinear Ray Theory, author Phoolan Prasad and his research group have made significant advances in the underlying theory of these phenomena. This volume presents their results and provides a self-contained account and gradual development of mathematical methods for studying successive positions of these fronts.Nonlinear Hyperbolic Waves in Multidimensions includes all introductory material on nonlinear hyperbolic waves and the theory of shock waves. The author derives the ray theory for a nonlinear wavefront, discusses kink phenomena, and develops a new theory for plane and curved shock propagation. He also derives a full set of conservation laws for a front propagating in two space dimensions, and uses these laws to obtain successive positions of a front with kinks. The treatment includes examples of the theory applied to converging wavefronts...

    In this note,we apply the h-adaptive streamline diffusion finite element method with a small mesh-dependent artificial viscosity to solve nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations,with the objective of achieving high order accuracy and mesh efficiency.We compute the numerical solution to a steady state Burgers equation and the solution to a converging-diverging nozzle problem.The computational results verify that,by suitably choosing the artificial viscosity coefficient and applying the adaptive strategy based on a posterior error estimate by Johnson et al.,an order of N-3/2 accuracy can be obtained when continuous piecewise linear elements are used,where N is the number of elements.

    2016-01-01

    We present a novel implementation of the modal discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for hyperbolic conservation laws in two dimensions on graphics processing units (GPUs) using NVIDIA's Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). Both flexible and highly accurate, DG methods accommodate parallel architectures well as their discontinuous nature produces element-local approximations. High performance scientific computing suits GPUs well, as these powerful, massively parallel, cost-effective devices have recently included support for double-precision floating point numbers. Computed examples for Euler equations over unstructured triangle meshes demonstrate the effectiveness of our implementation on an NVIDIA GTX 580 device. Profiling of our method reveals performance comparable to an existing nodal DG-GPU implementation for linear problems.

    The mathematical structure of hyperbolic systems and the scalar equation case of conservation laws are discussed. Linear, nonlinear systems and the Riemann problem for the Euler equations are also studied. The numerical methods for conservation laws are presented in a nonstandard manner which leads to large time steps generalizations and computations on irregular grids. The solution of conservation laws with stiff source terms is examined.

  6. Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws

    KAUST Repository

    2016-11-11

    Hyperbolic conservation laws form a special class of partial differential equations. They describe phenomena that involve conserved quantities and their solutions show discontinuities which reflect the formation of shock waves. We consider one-dimensional systems of hyperbolic conservation laws and produce approximations using finite difference, finite volume and finite element methods. Due to stability issues of classical finite element methods for hyperbolic conservation laws, we study the discontinuous Galerkin method, which was recently introduced. The method involves completely discontinuous basis functions across each element and it can be considered as a combination of finite volume and finite element methods. We illustrate the implementation of discontinuous Galerkin method using Legendre polynomials, in case of scalar equations and in case of quasi-linear systems, and we review important theoretical results about stability and convergence of the method. The applications of finite volume and discontinuous Galerkin methods to linear and non-linear scalar equations, as well as to the system of elastodynamics, are exhibited.

  7. Solutions in the large for some nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws of gas dynamics

    Temple, J. B.

    1980-03-01

    The constraints under which a gas at a certain state will evolve can be given by three partial differential equations which express the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy. A particular energy function was discovered for which there is a global weak solution for bounded measurable data having finite total variation. This energy function models an ideal gas, and is given by the formula e = - lambda eta V + (S/R). The following general existence theorem is also obtained: let e sub epsilon (v,S) be any smooth one parameter family of energy functions such that at epsilon = 0 the energy is given by e (v,S) = - lambda eta V + (S/R). It is proven that there exists a constant C independent of epsilon, such that, if the total variation of the inertial data C, then there exists a global weak solution to the equations. An existence theorem for polytropic gases was also obtained.

    2008-01-01

    In this paper, we investigate the large-time behavior of solutions to the initial-boundary value problem for nxn hyperbolic system of conservation laws with artificial viscosity in the half line (0, ∞). We first show that a boundary layer exists if the corresponding hyperbolic part contains at least one characteristic field with negative propagation speed. We further show that such boundary layer is nonlinearly stable under small initial perturbation. The proofs are given by an elementary energy method.

    The field of nonlinear hyperbolic problems has been expanding very fast over the past few years, and has applications - actual and potential - in aerodynamics, multifluid flows, combustion, detonics amongst other. The difficulties that arise in application are of theoretical as well as numerical nature. In fact, the papers in this volume of proceedings deal to a greater extent with theoretical problems emerging in the resolution of nonlinear hyperbolic systems than with numerical methods. The volume provides an excellent up-to-date review of the current research trends in this area.

    2007-01-01

    We construct and implement a non-oscillatory relaxation scheme for multidimensional hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. The method transforms the nonlinear hyperbolic system to a semilinear model with a relaxation source term and linear characteristics which can be solved numerically without using either Riemann solver or linear iterations.To discretize the relaxation system we consider a high-resolution reconstruction in space and a TVD Runge-Kutta time integration. Detailed formulation of the scheme is given for problems in three space dimensions and numerical experiments are implemented in both scalar and system cases to show the effectiveness of the method.

Parallel scaling analysis and grid-independent results including contours and isosurfaces of density and velocity and magnetic field vectors are shown in this study, confirming the ability of these types of solvers to approximate the solutions of hyperbolic equations efficiently and accurately.

  17. Nonlinear electrodynamics as a symmetric hyperbolic system

    CERN Document Server

    Abalos, Fernando; Goulart, Érico; Reula, Oscar

    2015-01-01

    Nonlinear theories generalizing Maxwell's electromagnetism and arising from a Lagrangian formalism have dispersion relations in which propagation planes factor into null planes corresponding to two effective metrics which depend on the point-wise values of the electromagnetic field. These effective Lorentzian metrics share the null (generically two) directions of the electromagnetic field. We show that, the theory is symmetric hyperbolic if and only if the cones these metrics give rise to have a non-empty intersection. Namely that there exist families of symmetrizers in the sense of Geroch which are positive definite for all covectors in the interior of the cones intersection. Thus, for these theories, the initial value problem is well-posed. We illustrate the power of this approach with several nonlinear models of physical interest such as Born-Infeld, Gauss-Bonnet and Euler-Heisenberg.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lukáčová-Medvid'ová, M.; Saibertová, J.; Warnecke, G.

    2002-12-01

    We present new truly multidimensional schemes of higher order within the frame- work of finite volume evolution Galerkin (FVEG) methods for systems of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws. These methods couple a finite volume formulation with approximate evolution operators. The latter are constructed using the bicharacteristics of the multidimensional hyperbolic system, such that all of the infinitely many directions of wave propagation are taken into account. Following our previous results for the wave equation system, we derive approximate evolution operators for the linearized Euler equations. The integrals along the Mach cone and along the cell interfaces are evaluated exactly, as well as by means of numerical quadratures. The influence of these numerical quadratures will be discussed. Second-order resolution is obtained using a conservative piecewise bilinear recovery and the midpoint rule approximation for time integration. We prove error estimates for the finite volume evolution Galerkin scheme for linear systems with constant coefficients. Several numerical experiments for the nonlinear. Euler equations, which confirm the accuracy and good multidimensional behavior of the FVEG schemes, are presented as well.

    2011-01-01

    We study the multiscale homogenization of a nonlinear hyperbolic equation in a periodic setting. We obtain an accurate homogenization result. We also show that as the nonlinear term depends on the microscopic time variable, the global homogenized problem thus obtained is a system consisting of two hyperbolic equations. It is also shown that in spite of the presence of several time scales, the global homogenized problem is not a reiterated one.

  1. An Efficient Numerical Approach for Solving Nonlinear Coupled Hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations with Nonlocal Conditions

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. H. Bhrawy

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available One of the most important advantages of collocation method is the possibility of dealing with nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs as well as PDEs with variable coefficients. A numerical solution based on a Jacobi collocation method is extended to solve nonlinear coupled hyperbolic PDEs with variable coefficients subject to initial-boundary nonlocal conservation conditions. This approach, based on Jacobi polynomials and Gauss-Lobatto quadrature integration, reduces solving the nonlinear coupled hyperbolic PDEs with variable coefficients to a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equation which is far easier to solve. In fact, we deal with initial-boundary coupled hyperbolic PDEs with variable coefficients as well as initial-nonlocal conditions. Using triangular, soliton, and exponential-triangular solutions as exact solutions, the obtained results show that the proposed numerical algorithm is efficient and very accurate.

    2015-01-01

    We explore the phase structure of nonlinear sigma models with target spaces corresponding to compact quotients of hyperbolic space, focusing on the case of a hyperbolic genus-2 Riemann surface. The continuum theory of these models can be approximated by a lattice spin system which we simulate using Monte Carlo methods. The target space possesses interesting geometric and topological properties which are reflected in novel features of the sigma model. In particular, we observe a topological phase transition at a critical temperature, above which vortices proliferate, reminiscent of the Kosterlitz-Thouless phase transition in the $O(2)$ model. Unlike in the $O(2)$ case, there are many different types of vortices, suggesting a possible analogy to the Hagedorn treatment of statistical mechanics of a proliferating number of hadron species. Below the critical temperature the spins cluster around six special points in the target space known as Weierstrass points. The diversity of compact hyperbolic manifolds suggest...

    2002-01-01

    The method of compensated compactness as a technique for studying hyperbolic conservation laws is of fundamental importance in many branches of applied mathematics. Until now, however, most accounts of this method have been confined to research papers. Offering the first comprehensive treatment, Hyperbolic Conservation Laws and the Compensated Compactness Method gathers together into a single volume the essential ideas and developments.The authors begin with the fundamental theorems, then consider the Cauchy problem of the scalar equation, build a framework for L8 estimates of viscosity solutions, and introduce the Invariant Region Theory. The study then turns to methods for symmetric systems of two equations and two equations with quadratic flux, and the extension of these methods to the Le Roux system. After examining the system of polytropic gas dynamics (g-law), the authors first study two special systems of one-dimensional Euler equations, then consider the general Euler equations for one-dimensional com...

    2003-01-01

    AD (Alternating direction) Galerkin schemes for d-dimensional nonlinear pseudo-hyperbolic equations are studied. By using patch approximation technique, AD procedure is realized,and calculation work is simplified. By using Galerkin approach, highly computational accuracy is kept. By using various priori estimate techniques for differential equations,difficulty coming from non-linearity is treated, and optimal H1 and L2 convergence properties are demonstrated. Moreover, although all the existed AD Galerkin schemes using patch approximation are limited to have only one order accuracy in time increment, yet the schemes formulated in this paper have second order accuracy in it. This implies an essential advancement in AD Galerkin analysis.

    We study a transport-diffusion initial value problem where the diffusion codlicient is "small" and the transport coefficient is a time function depending on the solution in a nonlinear and nonlocal way. We show the existence and the uniqueness of a weak solution of this problem. Moreover we discuss its asymptotic behaviour as the diffusion coefficient goes to zero, obtaining a well-posed first-order nonlinear hyperbolic problem. These problems arise from mathematical models of muscle contraction in the framework of the sliding filament theory.

    2003-01-01

    For nonlinear hyperbolic problems, conservation of the numerical scheme is importantfor convergence to the correct weak solutions. In this paper the conservation of the well-known compact scheme up to fourth order of accuracy on a single and uniform grid isstudied, and a conservative interface treatment is derived for compact schemes on patchedgrids. For a pure initial value problem, the compact scheme is shown to be equivalent toa scheme in the usual conservative form. For the case of a mixed initial boundary valueproblem, the compact scheme is conservative only if the rounding errors are small enough.For a patched grid interface, a conservative interface condition useful for mesh refinementand for parallel computation is derived and its order of local accuracy is analyzed.

    Full Text Available We firstly give some new functions called generalized hyperbolic functions. By the using of the generalized hyperbolic functions, new kinds of transformations are defined to discover the exact approximate solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. Based on the generalized hyperbolic function transformation of the generalized KdV equation and the coupled equal width wave equations (CEWE, we find new exact solutions of two equations and analyze the properties of them by taking different parameter values of the generalized hyperbolic functions. We think that these solutions are very important to explain some physical phenomena.

Some conservative nonlinear oscillators are analysed to illustrate the usefulness and effectiveness of the technique.

  17. A new efficient formulation of the HLLEM Riemann solver for general conservative and non-conservative hyperbolic systems

    In this paper a new, simple and universal formulation of the HLLEM Riemann solver (RS) is proposed that works for general conservative and non-conservative systems of hyperbolic equations. For non-conservative PDE, a path-conservative formulation of the HLLEM RS is presented for the first time in this paper. The HLLEM Riemann solver is built on top of a novel and very robust path-conservative HLL method. It thus naturally inherits the positivity properties and the entropy enforcement of the underlying HLL scheme. However, with just the slight additional cost of evaluating eigenvectors and eigenvalues of intermediate characteristic fields, we can represent linearly degenerate intermediate waves with a minimum of smearing. For conservative systems, our paper provides the easiest and most seamless path for taking a pre-existing HLL RS and quickly and effortlessly converting it to a RS that provides improved results, comparable with those of an HLLC, HLLD, Osher or Roe-type RS. This is done with minimal additional computational complexity, making our variant of the HLLEM RS also a very fast RS that can accurately represent linearly degenerate discontinuities. Our present HLLEM RS also transparently extends these advantages to non-conservative systems. For shallow water-type systems, the resulting method is proven to be well-balanced. Several test problems are presented for shallow water-type equations and two-phase flow models, as well as for gas dynamics with real equation of state, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD & RMHD), and nonlinear elasticity. Since our new formulation accommodates multiple intermediate waves and has a broader applicability than the original HLLEM method, it could alternatively be called the HLLI Riemann solver, where the “I” stands for the intermediate characteristic fields that can be accounted for. -- Highlights: •New simple and general path-conservative formulation of the HLLEM Riemann solver. •Application to general conservative and non-conservative

    Some concepts about approximate and semi-approximate weak inertial manifolds are introduced and the existence of global attractor and semi-approximate weak inertial manifolds is obtained for a class of nonlinear hyperbolic dynamical systems by means of some topologically homeomorphic mappings and techniques. Using these results, the existence of approximate weak inertial manifolds is also presented for a kind of nonlinear hyperbolic system arising from relativistic quantum mechanics. The regularization problem is proposed finally.

    Full Text Available With the help of the generalized hyperbolic function, the subsidiary ordinary differential equation method is improved and proposed to construct exact traveling wave solutions of the nonlinear partial differential equations in a unified way. A class of nonlinear Schrödinger-type equations including the generalized Zakharov system, the Rangwala-Rao equation, and the Chen-Lee-Liu equation are investigated and the exact solutions are derived with the aid of the homogenous balance principle and generalized hyperbolic functions. We study the effect of the generalized hyperbolic function parameters p and q in the obtained solutions by using the computer simulation.

    A cubication procedure of the nonlinear differential equation for conservative nonlinear oscillators is analysed and discussed. This scheme is based on the Chebyshev series expansion of the restoring force, and this allows us to approximate the original nonlinear differential equation by a Duffing equation in which the coefficients for the linear and cubic terms depend on the initial amplitude, A, while in a Taylor expansion of the restoring force these coefficients are independent of A. The replacement of the original nonlinear equation by an approximate Duffing equation allows us to obtain an approximate frequency-amplitude relation as a function of the complete elliptic integral of the first kind. Some conservative nonlinear oscillators are analysed to illustrate the usefulness and effectiveness of this scheme.

    1987-01-01

    Finite element analysis, applied to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) problem classes, presents a formal procedure for establishing the ingredients of a discrete approximation numerical solution algorithm. A classical Galerkin weak-statement formulation, formed on a Taylor series extension of the conservation law system, is developed herein that embeds a set of parameters eligible for constraint according to specification of suitable norms. The derived family of Taylor weak statements is shown to contain, as special cases, over one dozen independently derived CFD algorithms published over the past several decades for the high speed flow problem class. A theoretical analysis is completed that facilitates direct qualitative comparisons. Numerical results for definitive linear and nonlinear test problems permit direct quantitative performance comparisons.

  4. Shock structure simulation using hyperbolic moment models in partially-conservative form

    2016-11-01

    The Boltzmann equation is often used to model rarefied gas flow in the transition or kinetic regime for moderate to large Knudsen numbers. However, standard moment methods like Grad's approach lack hyperbolicity of the equations. We point out the failure of Grad's method and overcome the deficiencies with the help of the new hyperbolic moment models called QBME and HME, derived by an operator projection framework. The new model equations are in partially-conservative form meaning that a subset of the equations cannot be written in conservative form due to some changes in these equations. This leads to additional numerical difficulties. The influence of the partially-conservative terms on the solution is analyzed and we present a numerical scheme for the solution of the partially-conservative PDE systems, namely the PRICE-C scheme by Canestrelli. Furthermore, a shock structure test case is used to compare the accuracy of the different hyperbolic moment models to a discrete velocity reference solution. The results show that the new hyperbolic models achieve higher accuracy than the standard Grad model despite the fact that the model equations cannot be fully written in conservative form.

  8. A new fifth order finite difference WENO scheme for solving hyperbolic conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhu, Jun; Qiu, Jianxian

    2016-08-01

    In this paper a new simple fifth order weighted essentially non-oscillatory (WENO) scheme is presented in the finite difference framework for solving the hyperbolic conservation laws. The new WENO scheme is a convex combination of a fourth degree polynomial with two linear polynomials in a traditional WENO fashion. This new fifth order WENO scheme uses the same five-point information as the classical fifth order WENO scheme [14,20], could get less absolute truncation errors in L1 and L∞ norms, and obtain the same accuracy order in smooth region containing complicated numerical solution structures simultaneously escaping nonphysical oscillations adjacent strong shocks or contact discontinuities. The associated linear weights are artificially set to be any random positive numbers with the only requirement that their sum equals one. New nonlinear weights are proposed for the purpose of sustaining the optimal fifth order accuracy. The new WENO scheme has advantages over the classical WENO scheme [14,20] in its simplicity and easy extension to higher dimensions. Some benchmark numerical tests are performed to illustrate the capability of this new fifth order WENO scheme.

  10. The Characteristic Galerkin Method for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Childs, P. N.

    Available from UMI in association with The British Library. Requires signed TDF. The purpose of this thesis is to study Morton's characteristic Galerkin method for hyperbolic problems. The scheme arises through employing the method of characteristics within a finite element context. While initially based on a piecewise constant approximation space, an adaptive linear recovery process permits high resolution while maintaining stability; and furthermore, some degree of shock recovery is permitted. In the scalar case, a rigorous analysis is carried out for convergence of the scheme for an initial boundary value problem; and we give an assessment of various qualitative features of the method in the presence of discontinuities. The method is explicit, yet an important feature is the lack of a stability restriction on the timestep. We extend the method to one dimensional systems using various forms of flux splitting and investigate the questions of entropy satisfaction and optimal order accuracy. The finite element viewpoint allows the incorporation of various grid adaptation strategies. The results of a number of numerical experiments for compressible gas flow are presented through which to assess the method and enable a comparison with finite difference methods to be made. Finally, we consider the extension to multidimensional systems and to inhomogeneous equations.

  11. Global attractors for damped abstract nonlinear hyperbolic systems

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pinter, Gabriella Agnes

    1997-12-01

    This dissertation is concerned with the long time dynamics of a class of damped abstract hyperbolic systems that arise in the study of certain smart material structures, namely elastomers. The term smart material refers to a material capable of both sensing and responding actively to outside excitation. These properties make smart materials a prime canditate for actuation and sensing in next generation control systems. However, modeling and numerically simulating their behavior poses several difficulties. In this work we consider a model for elastomers developed by H. T. Banks, N. J. Lybeck, B. C. Munoz, L. C. Yanyo, formulate this model as an abstract evolution system, and study the long time behavior of its solutions. We remark that the question of existence and uniqueness of solutions for this class of systems is a challenging problem and was only recently solved by H. T. Banks, D. S. Gilliam and V. I. Shubov. Concerning the long time dynamics of the problem, we first prove that the system generates a weak dynamical system, and possesses a weak global attractor. Our main result is the existence of a "strong" dynamical system which has a compact global attractor. With the help of a Lyapunov function we are able to characterize the structure of this attractor. We also give a theorem that guarantees the stability of the global attractor with respect to varying parameters in the system. Our last result concerns the uniform differentiability of the dynamical system.

    By making use of the integral inequalities and some results of the functional differential equations, oscillatory properties of solutions of certain nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations of neutral type with multi-delays were investigated and a series of sufficient conditions for oscillations of the equations were established. The results fully indicate that the oscillations are caused by delay and hence reveal the difference between these equations and those equations without delay.

  15. On the Cauchy problem of a 2 times 2 system of nonstrictly hyperbolic conservation laws

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kan, P.T.

    1989-01-01

    Global existence for a 2 {times} 2 system of nonstrictly hyperbolic conservation law is established for data of arbitrary bounded variation. This result is obtained by proving a convergence theorem for the method of artificial viscosity applied to this system of conservation law. For this purpose, the method of compensated compactness and an analysis of the entropy functions are used. This system under consideration is a special case of a canonical class of 2 {times} 2 systems of conservation laws with quadratic flux functions possessing an isolated umbilic point (point of coinciding wave speeds where strict hyperbolicity fails) at the origin of the state space. These systems arise as model equations to equations used in oil reservoir simulations. Their wave curves and Riemann problem solutions are known to exhibit complexities not seen in any strictly hyperbolic systems. In this thesis, besides establishing global existence for a special system in the canonical class, general properties of a subclass are also investigated. The geometry of rarefaction wave curves are analytically studied and Riemann invariants are constructed. An L{sup {infinity}} bound (independent of the viscosity) for the solutions of the corresponding viscous systems are obtained. Also studied is the monotonicity properties of the wave speeds in the Riemann invariant plane.

  16. An HP Adaptive Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws. Ph.D. Thesis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bey, Kim S.

    1994-01-01

    This dissertation addresses various issues for model classes of hyperbolic conservation laws. The basic approach developed in this work employs a new family of adaptive, hp-version, finite element methods based on a special discontinuous Galerkin formulation for hyperbolic problems. The discontinuous Galerkin formulation admits high-order local approximations on domains of quite general geometry, while providing a natural framework for finite element approximations and for theoretical developments. The use of hp-versions of the finite element method makes possible exponentially convergent schemes with very high accuracies in certain cases; the use of adaptive hp-schemes allows h-refinement in regions of low regularity and p-enrichment to deliver high accuracy, while keeping problem sizes manageable and dramatically smaller than many conventional approaches. The use of discontinuous Galerkin methods is uncommon in applications, but the methods rest on a reasonable mathematical basis for low-order cases and has local approximation features that can be exploited to produce very efficient schemes, especially in a parallel, multiprocessor environment. The place of this work is to first and primarily focus on a model class of linear hyperbolic conservation laws for which concrete mathematical results, methodologies, error estimates, convergence criteria, and parallel adaptive strategies can be developed, and to then briefly explore some extensions to more general cases. Next, we provide preliminaries to the study and a review of some aspects of the theory of hyperbolic conservation laws. We also provide a review of relevant literature on this subject and on the numerical analysis of these types of problems.

    Arun, K. R.; Kraft, M.; Lukáčová-Medvid'ová, M.; Prasad, Phoolan

    2009-02-01

    We present a generalization of the finite volume evolution Galerkin scheme [M. Lukáčová-Medvid'ová, J. Saibertov'a, G. Warnecke, Finite volume evolution Galerkin methods for nonlinear hyperbolic systems, J. Comp. Phys. (2002) 183 533- 562; M. Lukáčová-Medvid'ová, K.W. Morton, G. Warnecke, Finite volume evolution Galerkin (FVEG) methods for hyperbolic problems, SIAM J. Sci. Comput. (2004) 26 1-30] for hyperbolic systems with spatially varying flux functions. Our goal is to develop a genuinely multi-dimensional numerical scheme for wave propagation problems in a heterogeneous media. We illustrate our methodology for acoustic waves in a heterogeneous medium but the results can be generalized to more complex systems. The finite volume evolution Galerkin (FVEG) method is a predictor-corrector method combining the finite volume corrector step with the evolutionary predictor step. In order to evolve fluxes along the cell interfaces we use multi-dimensional approximate evolution operator. The latter is constructed using the theory of bicharacteristics under the assumption of spatially dependent wave speeds. To approximate heterogeneous medium a staggered grid approach is used. Several numerical experiments for wave propagation with continuous as well as discontinuous wave speeds confirm the robustness and reliability of the new FVEG scheme.

  18. A scalar hyperbolic equation with GR-type non-linearity

    CERN Document Server

    Khokhlov, A M

    2003-01-01

    We study a scalar hyperbolic partial differential equation with non-linear terms similar to those of the equations of general relativity. The equation has a number of non-trivial analytical solutions whose existence rely on a delicate balance between linear and non-linear terms. We formulate two classes of second-order accurate central-difference schemes, CFLN and MOL, for numerical integration of this equation. Solutions produced by the schemes converge to exact solutions at any fixed time $t$ when numerical resolution is increased. However, in certain cases integration becomes asymptotically unstable when $t$ is increased and resolution is kept fixed. This behavior is caused by subtle changes in the balance between linear and non-linear terms when the equation is discretized. Changes in the balance occur without violating second-order accuracy of discretization. We thus demonstrate that a second-order accuracy, althoug necessary for convergence at finite $t$, does not guarantee a correct asymptotic behavior...

    2008-01-01

    This is the second part of a work aimed to study complex-phase oscillatory solutions of nonlinear symmetric hyperbolic systems. We consider, in particular, the case of one space dimension. That is a remarkable case, since one can always satisfy the \\emph{naive} coherence condition on the complex phases, which is required in the construction of the approximate solution. Formally the theory applies also in several space dimensions, but the \\emph{naive} coherence condition appears to be too restrictive; the identification of the optimal coherence condition is still an open problem.

    Improved L2-error estimates are computed for mixed finite element methods for second order nonlinear hyperbolic equations. Results are given for the continuous-time case. The convergence of the values for both the scalar function and the flux is demonstrated. The technique used here covers the lowest-order Raviart-Thomas spaces, as well as the higherorder spaces. A second paper will present the analysis of a fully discrete scheme (Numer.Math. J. Chinese Univ. vol.9, no.2, 2000, 181-192).

  1. Hybrid entropy stable HLL-type Riemann solvers for hyperbolic conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schmidtmann, Birte; Winters, Andrew R.

    2017-02-01

    It is known that HLL-type schemes are more dissipative than schemes based on characteristic decompositions. However, HLL-type methods offer greater flexibility to large systems of hyperbolic conservation laws because the eigenstructure of the flux Jacobian is not needed. We demonstrate in the present work that several HLL-type Riemann solvers are provably entropy stable. Further, we provide convex combinations of standard dissipation terms to create hybrid HLL-type methods that have less dissipation while retaining entropy stability. The decrease in dissipation is demonstrated for the ideal MHD equations with a numerical example.

  2. Discontinuous Galerkin finite element method for the nonlinear hyperbolic problems with entropy-based artificial viscosity stabilization

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zingan, Valentin Nikolaevich

    This work develops a discontinuous Galerkin finite element discretization of non- linear hyperbolic conservation equations with efficient and robust high order stabilization built on an entropy-based artificial viscosity approximation. The solutions of equations are represented by elementwise polynomials of an arbitrary degree p > 0 which are continuous within each element but discontinuous on the boundaries. The discretization of equations in time is done by means of high order explicit Runge-Kutta methods identified with respective Butcher tableaux. To stabilize a numerical solution in the vicinity of shock waves and simultaneously preserve the smooth parts from smearing, we add some reasonable amount of artificial viscosity in accordance with the physical principle of entropy production in the interior of shock waves. The viscosity coefficient is proportional to the local size of the residual of an entropy equation and is bounded from above by the first-order artificial viscosity defined by a local wave speed. Since the residual of an entropy equation is supposed to be vanishingly small in smooth regions (of the order of the Local Truncation Error) and arbitrarily large in shocks, the entropy viscosity is almost zero everywhere except the shocks, where it reaches the first-order upper bound. One- and two-dimensional benchmark test cases are presented for nonlinear hyperbolic scalar conservation laws and the system of compressible Euler equations. These tests demonstrate the satisfactory stability properties of the method and optimal convergence rates as well. All numerical solutions to the test problems agree well with the reference solutions found in the literature. We conclude that the new method developed in the present work is a valuable alternative to currently existing techniques of viscous stabilization.

  3. A universal asymptotic regime in the hyperbolic nonlinear Schr\\"odinger equation

    CERN Document Server

    Ablowitz, Mark J; Rumanov, Igor

    2016-01-01

    The appearance of a fundamental long-time asymptotic regime in the two space one time dimensional hyperbolic nonlinear Schr\\"odinger (HNLS) equation is discussed. Based on analytical and extensive numerical simulations an approximate self-similar solution is found for a wide range of initial conditions -- essentially for initial lumps of small to moderate energy. Even relatively large initial amplitudes, which imply strong nonlinear effects, eventually lead to local structures resembling those of the self-similar solution, with appropriate small modifications. These modifications are important in order to properly capture the behavior of the phase of the solution. This solution has aspects that suggest it is a universal attractor emanating from wide ranges of initial data.

  4. Attractors for strongly damped wave equations with nonlinear hyperbolic dynamic boundary conditions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jameson Graber, P.; Shomberg, Joseph L.

    2016-04-01

    We establish the well-posedness of a strongly damped semilinear wave equation equipped with nonlinear hyperbolic dynamic boundary conditions. Results are carried out with the presence of a parameter distinguishing whether the underlying operator is analytic, α >0 , or only of Gevrey class, α =0 . We establish the existence of a global attractor for each α \\in ≤ft[0,1\\right], and we show that the family of global attractors is upper-semicontinuous as α \\to 0. Furthermore, for each α \\in ≤ft[0,1\\right] , we show the existence of a weak exponential attractor. A weak exponential attractor is a finite dimensional compact set in the weak topology of the phase space. This result ensures the corresponding global attractor also possesses finite fractal dimension in the weak topology; moreover, the dimension is independent of the perturbation parameter α. In both settings, attractors are found under minimal assumptions on the nonlinear terms.

  5. An assessment of semi-discrete central schemes for hyperbolic conservation laws.

    2003-09-01

    High-resolution finite volume methods for solving systems of conservation laws have been widely embraced in research areas ranging from astrophysics to geophysics and aero-thermodynamics. These methods are typically at least second-order accurate in space and time, deliver non-oscillatory solutions in the presence of near discontinuities, e.g., shocks, and introduce minimal dispersive and diffusive effects. High-resolution methods promise to provide greatly enhanced solution methods for Sandia's mainstream shock hydrodynamics and compressible flow applications, and they admit the possibility of a generalized framework for treating multi-physics problems such as the coupled hydrodynamics, electro-magnetics and radiative transport found in Z pinch physics. In this work, we describe initial efforts to develop a generalized 'black-box' conservation law framework based on modern high-resolution methods and implemented in an object-oriented software framework. The framework is based on the solution of systems of general non-linear hyperbolic conservation laws using Godunov-type central schemes. In our initial efforts, we have focused on central or central-upwind schemes that can be implemented with only a knowledge of the physical flux function and the minimal/maximal eigenvalues of the Jacobian of the flux functions, i.e., they do not rely on extensive Riemann decompositions. Initial experimentation with high-resolution central schemes suggests that contact discontinuities with the concomitant linearly degenerate eigenvalues of the flux Jacobian do not pose algorithmic difficulties. However, central schemes can produce significant smearing of contact discontinuities and excessive dissipation for rotational flows. Comparisons between 'black-box' central schemes and the piecewise parabolic method (PPM), which relies heavily on a Riemann decomposition, shows that roughly equivalent accuracy can be achieved for the same computational cost with both

  7. Flooding in urban drainage systems: Coupling hyperbolic conservation laws for sewer systems and surface flow

    CERN Document Server

    Borsche, Raul

    2014-01-01

    In this paper we propose a model for a sewer network coupled to surface flow and investigate it numerically. In particular, we present a new model for the manholes in storm sewer systems. It is derived using the balance of the total energy in the complete network. The resulting system of equations contains, aside from hyperbolic conservation laws for the sewer network and algebraic relations for the coupling conditions, a system of ODEs governing the flow in the manholes. The manholes provide natural points for the interaction of the sewer system and the run off on the urban surface modelled by shallow water equations. Finally, a numerical method for the coupled system is presented. In several numerical tests we study the influence of the manhole model on the sewer system and the coupling with 2D surface flow.

  8. The finite volume local evolution Galerkin method for solving the hyperbolic conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sun, Yutao; Ren, Yu-Xin

    2009-07-01

    This paper presents a finite volume local evolution Galerkin (FVLEG) scheme for solving the hyperbolic conservation laws. The FVLEG scheme is the simplification of the finite volume evolution Galerkin method (FVEG). In FVEG, a necessary step is to compute the dependent variables at cell interfaces at tn + τ (0 FVEG. The FVLEG scheme greatly simplifies the evaluation of the numerical fluxes. It is also well suited with the semi-discrete finite volume method, making the flux evaluation being decoupled with the reconstruction procedure while maintaining the genuine multi-dimensional nature of the FVEG methods. The derivation of the FVLEG scheme is presented in detail. The performance of the proposed scheme is studied by solving several test cases. It is shown that FVLEG scheme can obtain very satisfactory numerical results in terms of accuracy and resolution.

  9. Semi-implicit and fully implicit shock-capturing methods for hyperbolic conservation laws with stiff source terms

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yee, H. C.; Shinn, Judy L.

    1987-01-01

    Some numerical aspects of finite-difference algorithms for nonlinear multidimensional hyperbolic conservation laws with stiff nonhomogeneous (source) terms are discussed. If the stiffness is entirely dominated by the source term, a semi-implicit shock-capturing method is proposed provided that the Jacobian of the source terms possesses certain properties. The proposed semi-implicit method can be viewed as a variant of the Bussing and Murman point-implicit scheme with a more appropriate numerical dissipation for the computation of strong shock waves. However, if the stiffness is not solely dominated by the source terms, a fully implicit method would be a better choice. The situation is complicated by problems that are higher than one dimension, and the presence of stiff source terms further complicates the solution procedures for alternating direction implicit (ADI) methods. Several alternatives are discussed. The primary motivation for constructing these schemes was to address thermally and chemically nonequilibrium flows in the hypersonic regime. Due to the unique structure of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors for fluid flows of this type, the computation can be simplified, thus providing a more efficient solution procedure than one might have anticipated.

  10. Nonlinear self-adjointness and conservation laws

    2011-10-28

    The general concept of nonlinear self-adjointness of differential equations is introduced. It includes the linear self-adjointness as a particular case. Moreover, it embraces the strict self-adjointness (definition 1) and quasi-self-adjointness introduced earlier by the author. It is shown that the equations possessing nonlinear self-adjointness can be written equivalently in a strictly self-adjoint form by using appropriate multipliers. All linear equations possess the property of nonlinear self-adjointness, and hence can be rewritten in a nonlinear strictly self-adjoint form. For example, the heat equation u{sub t} - {Delta}u = 0 becomes strictly self-adjoint after multiplying by u{sup -1}. Conservation laws associated with symmetries are given in an explicit form for all nonlinearly self-adjoint partial differential equations and systems. (fast track communication)

    We provide a precise description of the set of residual boundary conditions generated by the self-similar viscous approximation introduced by Dafermos et al. We then apply our results, valid for both conservative and non conservative systems, to the analysis of the boundary Riemann problem and we show that, under appropriate assumptions, the limits of the self-similar and the classical vanishing viscosity approximation coincide. We require neither genuinely nonlinearity nor linear degeneracy of the characteristic fields.

    2011-05-01

    A new class of high-order numerical methods for approximating nonlinear conservation laws is described (entropy viscosity method). The novelty is that a nonlinear viscosity based on the local size of an entropy production is added to the numerical discretization at hand. This new approach does not use any flux or slope limiters, applies to equations or systems supplemented with one or more entropy inequalities and does not depend on the mesh type and polynomial approximation. Various benchmark problems are solved with finite elements, spectral elements and Fourier series to illustrate the capability of the proposed method. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.

    It is well known that semi-discrete high order discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods satisfy cell entropy inequalities for the square entropy for both scalar conservation laws (Jiang and Shu (1994) [39]) and symmetric hyperbolic systems (Hou and Liu (2007) [36]), in any space dimension and for any triangulations. However, this property holds only for the square entropy and the integrations in the DG methods must be exact. It is significantly more difficult to design DG methods to satisfy entropy inequalities for a non-square convex entropy, and/or when the integration is approximated by a numerical quadrature. In this paper, we develop a unified framework for designing high order DG methods which will satisfy entropy inequalities for any given single convex entropy, through suitable numerical quadrature which is specific to this given entropy. Our framework applies from one-dimensional scalar cases all the way to multi-dimensional systems of conservation laws. For the one-dimensional case, our numerical quadrature is based on the methodology established in Carpenter et al. (2014) [5] and Gassner (2013) [19]. The main ingredients are summation-by-parts (SBP) operators derived from Legendre Gauss-Lobatto quadrature, the entropy conservative flux within elements, and the entropy stable flux at element interfaces. We then generalize the scheme to two-dimensional triangular meshes by constructing SBP operators on triangles based on a special quadrature rule. A local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) type treatment is also incorporated to achieve the generalization to convection-diffusion equations. Extensive numerical experiments are performed to validate the accuracy and shock capturing efficacy of these entropy stable DG methods.

  14. A Hybrid Riemann Solver for Large Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws

    2016-01-01

    We are interested in the numerical solution of large systems of hyperbolic conservation laws or systems in which the characteristic decomposition is expensive to compute. Solving such equations using finite volumes or Discontinuous Galerkin requires a numerical flux function which solves local Riemann problems at cell interfaces. There are various methods to express the numerical flux function. On the one end, there is the robust but very diffusive Lax-Friedrichs solver; on the other end the upwind Godunov solver which respects all resulting waves. The drawback of the latter method is the costly computation of the eigensystem. This work presents a family of simple first order Riemann solvers, named HLLX$\\omega$, which avoid solving the eigensystem. The new method reproduces all waves of the system with less dissipation than other solvers with similar input and effort, such as HLL and FORCE. The family of Riemann solvers can be seen as an extension or generalization of the methods introduced by Degond et al. \\...

  15. EXISTENCE AND UNIQUENESS OF THE ENTROPY SOLUTION TO A NONLINEAR HYPERBOLIC EQUATION

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    R.EYMARD; T.Gallouёt; R.Herbin

    1995-01-01

    This work is concerned with the proof of the existence and uniqueness of the entropy weak solution to the following nonlinear hyperbolic equation: ut+div(vf(u)) = 0 in IRN×(0, T), with initial data u(-, 0) = u0(-) in IRN, where u0 ∈ L∞(IRN) is a given function, v is a divergence-free bounded fnnction of class C1 from IRN × [0, T] to IRN, and f is a 5motion of class C1 from IR to IR. It also gives a result of convergence of a numerical scheme for the discretization of this equation. The authors first show the existence of a “process” solution (which generalizes the concept of entropy weak solutions, and can be obtained by passing to the limit of solutions ofthe numerical scheme). The uniqueness of this entropy process solution is then proven; it isalso proven that the entropy process solution is in fact an entropy weak solution. Hence the existence and uniqueness of the entropy weak solution are proven.

  17. Errors in the Bag Model of Strings, and Regge Trajectories Represent the Conservation of Angular Momentum in Hyperbolic Space

    CERN Document Server

    Lavenda, B H

    2011-01-01

    The MIT bag model is shown to be wrong because the bag pressure cannot be held constant, and the volume can be fixed in terms of it. The bag derivation of Regge's trajectories is invalidated by an integration of the energy and angular momentum over all values of the radius up to $r_0=c/\\omega$. This gives the absurd result that "total" angular momentum decreases as the frequency increases. The correct expression for the angular momentum is obtained from hyperbolic geometry of constant negative curvature $r_0$. When the square of the relativistic mass is introduced, it gives a negative intercept which is the Euclidean value of the angular momentum. Regge trajectories are simply statements of the conservation of angular momentum in hyperbolic space. The frequencies and values of the angular momentum are in remarkable agreement with experiment.

  18. Directional Diffusion Regulator (DDR) for some numerical solvers of hyperbolic conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jaisankar, S.; Sheshadri, T. S.

    2013-01-01

    A computational tool called "Directional Diffusion Regulator (DDR)" is proposed to bring forth real multidimensional physics into the upwind discretization in some numerical schemes of hyperbolic conservation laws. The direction based regulator when used with dimension splitting solvers, is set to moderate the excess multidimensional diffusion and hence cause genuine multidimensional upwinding like effect. The basic idea of this regulator driven method is to retain a full upwind scheme across local discontinuities, with the upwind bias decreasing smoothly to a minimum in the farthest direction. The discontinuous solutions are quantified as gradients and the regulator parameter across a typical finite volume interface or a finite difference interpolation point is formulated based on fractional local maximum gradient in any of the weak solution flow variables (say density, pressure, temperature, Mach number or even wave velocity etc.). DDR is applied to both the non-convective as well as whole unsplit dissipative flux terms of some numerical schemes, mainly of Local Lax-Friedrichs, to solve some benchmark problems describing inviscid compressible flow, shallow water dynamics and magneto-hydrodynamics. The first order solutions consistently improved depending on the extent of grid non-alignment to discontinuities, with the major influence due to regulation of non-convective diffusion. The application is also experimented on schemes such as Roe, Jameson-Schmidt-Turkel and some second order accurate methods. The consistent improvement in accuracy either at moderate or marked levels, for a variety of problems and with increasing grid size, reasonably indicate a scope for DDR as a regular tool to impart genuine multidimensional upwinding effect in a simpler framework.

    Full Text Available This research work describes the modelling of two novel 3-D chaotic systems, the first with a hyperbolic sinusoidal nonlinearity and two quadratic nonlinearities (denoted as system (A and the second with a hyperbolic cosinusoidal nonlinearity and two quadratic nonlinearities (denoted as system (B. In this work, a detailed qualitative analysis of the novel chaotic systems (A and (B has been presented, and the Lyapunov exponents and Kaplan-Yorke dimension of these chaotic systems have been obtained. It is found that the maximal Lyapunov exponent (MLE for the novel chaotic systems (A and (B has a large value, viz. for the system (A and for the system (B. Thus, both the novel chaotic systems (A and (B display strong chaotic behaviour. This research work also discusses the problem of finding adaptive controllers for the global chaos synchronization of identical chaotic systems (A, identical chaotic systems (B and nonidentical chaotic systems (A and (B with unknown system parameters. The adaptive controllers for achieving global chaos synchronization of the novel chaotic systems (A and (B have been derived using adaptive control theory and Lyapunov stability theory. MATLAB simulations have been shown to illustrate the novel chaotic systems (A and (B, and also the adaptive synchronization results derived for the novel chaotic systems (A and (B.

    1992-01-01

    The present treatment of elliptic regions via hyperbolic flux-splitting and high order methods proposes a flux splitting in which the corresponding Jacobians have real and positive/negative eigenvalues. While resembling the flux splitting used in hyperbolic systems, the present generalization of such splitting to elliptic regions allows the handling of mixed-type systems in a unified and heuristically stable fashion. The van der Waals fluid-dynamics equation is used. Convergence with good resolution to weak solutions for various Riemann problems are observed.

  1. Concentration of source terms in generalized Glimm scheme for global entropy solutions of nonlinear hyperbolic balance laws

    Chou, Shih-Wei; Lin, Ying-Chieh

    2017-08-01

    In this paper, we investigate the Cauchy problem for a nonlinear hyperbolic system of balance laws with sources ax g and at h. To get the approximate solutions of our problem, we consider a version of generalized Riemann problem that concentrates the variation of a on a thin T-shaped region of each grid. A new version of Glimm scheme is introduced to construct the approximate solutions and its stability is proved by considering two types of conditions on a. Finally, we verify the consistency of the scheme and the entropy inequality to establish the global existence of entropy solutions.

    In this article, we investigate the BV stability of 2 × 2 hyperbolic systems of conservation laws with strictly positive velocities under dissipative boundary conditions. More precisely, we derive sufficient conditions guaranteeing the exponential stability of the system under consideration for entropy solutions in BV. Our proof is based on a front tracking algorithm used to construct approximate piecewise constants solutions whose BV norms are controlled through a Lyapunov functional. This Lyapunov functional is inspired by the one proposed in J. Glimm's seminal work [16], modified with some suitable weights in the spirit of the previous works [9,10].

  4. Singular solutions of a fully nonlinear 2x2 system of conservation laws

    CERN Document Server

    Kalisch, Henrik

    2011-01-01

    Existence and admissibility of $\\delta$-shock type solution is discussed for the following nonconvex strictly hyperbolic system arising in studues of plasmas: \\pa_t u + \\pa_x \\big(\\Sfrac{u^2+v^2}{2} \\big) &=0 \\pa_t v +\\pa_x(v(u-1))&=0. The system is fully nonlinear, i.e. it is nonlinear with respect to both variables. The latter system does not admit the classical Lax-admissible solution to certain Riemann problems. By introducing complex valued corrections in the framework of the weak asymptotic method, we show that an overcompressive $\\delta$-shock type solution resolves such Riemann problems. By letting the approximation parameter to zero, the corrections become real valued and we obtain a $\\delta$-type solution concept. In the frame of that concept, we can show that every $2\\times 2$ system of conservation laws admits $\\delta$-type solution.

    Kim, J; Shin, H J; Kim, Jongbae

    1999-01-01

    Conservation laws of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation are studied in the presence of higher-order nonlinear optical effects including the third-order dispersion and the self-steepening. In a context of group theory, we derive a general expression for infinitely many conserved currents and charges of the coupled higher-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The first few currents and charges are also presented explicitly. Due to the higher-order effects, conservation laws of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation are violated in general. The differences between the types of the conserved currents for the Hirota and the Sasa-Satsuma equations imply that the higher-order terms determine the inherent types of conserved quantities for each integrable cases of the higher-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation.

  9. An iterative Riemann solver for systems of hyperbolic conservation law s, with application to hyperelastic solid mechanics

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Miller, Gregory H.

    2003-08-06

    In this paper we present a general iterative method for the solution of the Riemann problem for hyperbolic systems of PDEs. The method is based on the multiple shooting method for free boundary value problems. We demonstrate the method by solving one-dimensional Riemann problems for hyperelastic solid mechanics. Even for conditions representative of routine laboratory conditions and military ballistics, dramatic differences are seen between the exact and approximate Riemann solution. The greatest discrepancy arises from misallocation of energy between compressional and thermal modes by the approximate solver, resulting in nonphysical entropy and temperature estimates. Several pathological conditions arise in common practice, and modifications to the method to handle these are discussed. These include points where genuine nonlinearity is lost, degeneracies, and eigenvector deficiencies that occur upon melting.

However, when Prof Gottlieb passed away in December 2008, Professor Hesthaven took over as PI to ensure proper mentoring of students and postdoctoral researchers already involved in the project. This unusual circumstance has naturally impacted the project and its timeline. However, as the report reflects, the planned work has been accomplished and some activities beyond the original scope have been pursued with success. Project overview and main results The effort in this project focuses on the development of high order accurate computational methods for the solution of hyperbolic equations with application to problems with strong shocks. While the methods are general, emphasis is on applications to gas dynamics with strong shocks.

    In this paper, we present a solution method for constructing exact analytic solutions to magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations. The method is constructed via all the trigonometric and hyperbolic functions. The method is applied to MHD equilibria with mass flow. Applications to a solar system concerned with the properties of coronal mass ejections that affect the heliosphere are presented. Some examples of the constructed solutions which describe magnetic structures of solar eruptions are investigated. Moreover, the constructed method can be applied to a variety classes of elliptic partial differential equations which arise in plasma physics.

  13. A conservation law formulation of nonlinear elasticity in general relativity

    Gundlach, Carsten; Erickson, Stephanie J

    2011-01-01

    We present a practical framework for ideal hyperelasticity in numerical relativity. For this purpose, we recast the formalism of Carter and Quintana as a set of Eulerian conservation laws in an arbitrary 3+1 split of spacetime. The resulting equations are presented as an extension of the standard Valencia formalism for a perfect fluid, with additional terms in the stress-energy tensor, plus a set of kinematic conservation laws that evolve a configuration gradient. We prove that the equations can be made symmetric hyperbolic by suitable constraint additions, at least in a neighbourhood of the unsheared state. We discuss the Newtonian limit of our formalism and its relation to a second formalism also used in Newtonian elasticity. We validate our framework by numerically solving a set of Riemann problems in Minkowski spacetime, as well as Newtonian ones from the literature.

    2016-01-01

    This monograph explores the modeling of conservation and balance laws of one-dimensional hyperbolic systems using partial differential equations. It presents typical examples of hyperbolic systems for a wide range of physical engineering applications, allowing readers to understand the concepts in whichever setting is most familiar to them. With these examples, it also illustrates how control boundary conditions may be defined for the most commonly used control devices. The authors begin with the simple case of systems of two linear conservation laws and then consider the stability of systems under more general boundary conditions that may be differential, nonlinear, or switching. They then extend their discussion to the case of nonlinear conservation laws and demonstrate the use of Lyapunov functions in this type of analysis. Systems of balance laws are considered next, starting with the linear variety before they move on to more general cases of nonlinear ones. They go on to show how the problem of boundary...

    2001-06-01

    We study the evolution of fronts in the Klein-Gordon equation when the nonlinear term is inhomogeneous. Extending previous works on homogeneous nonlinear terms, we describe the derivation of an equation governing the front motion, which is strongly nonlinear, and, for the two-dimensional case, generalizes the damped Born-Infeld equation. We study the motion of one- and two-dimensional fronts finding a much richer dynamics than in the homogeneous system case, leading, in most cases, to the stabilization of one phase inside the other. For a one-dimensional front, the function describing the inhomogeneity of the nonlinear term acts as a "potential function" for the motion of the front, i.e., a front initially placed between two of its local maxima asymptotically approaches the intervening minimum. Two-dimensional fronts, with radial symmetry and without dissipation can either shrink to a point in finite time, grow unboundedly, or their radius can oscillate, depending on the initial conditions. When dissipation effects are present, the oscillations either decay spirally or not depending on the value of the damping dissipation parameter. For fronts with a more general shape, we present numerical simulations showing the same behavior.

In this model, a quasi-score function with aggregated data is defined. When this function happens to be conservative, it is projection of the true score function onto a class of estimation functions. By constructing, the potential function for the projected score with aggregated data is obtained, which have some properties of log-likelihood function.

  20. A-Posteriori Error Estimation for Hyperbolic Conservation Laws with Constraint

    Science.gov (United States)

    2004-01-01

    This lecture considers a-posteriori error estimates for the numerical solution of conservation laws with time invariant constraints such as those arising in magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and gravitational physics. Using standard duality arguments, a-posteriori error estimates for the discontinuous Galerkin finite element method are then presented for MHD with solenoidal constraint. From these estimates, a procedure for adaptive discretization is outlined. A taxonomy of Green's functions for the linearized MHD operator is given which characterizes the domain of dependence for pointwise errors. The extension to other constrained systems such as the Einstein equations of gravitational physics are then considered. Finally, future directions and open problems are discussed.

  1. Exact solutions to robust control problems involving scalar hyperbolic conservation laws using Mixed Integer Linear Programming

    KAUST Repository

    Li, Yanning

    2013-10-01

    This article presents a new robust control framework for transportation problems in which the state is modeled by a first order scalar conservation law. Using an equivalent formulation based on a Hamilton-Jacobi equation, we pose the problem of controlling the state of the system on a network link, using boundary flow control, as a Linear Program. Unlike many previously investigated transportation control schemes, this method yields a globally optimal solution and is capable of handling shocks (i.e. discontinuities in the state of the system). We also demonstrate that the same framework can handle robust control problems, in which the uncontrollable components of the initial and boundary conditions are encoded in intervals on the right hand side of inequalities in the linear program. The lower bound of the interval which defines the smallest feasible solution set is used to solve the robust LP (or MILP if the objective function depends on boolean variables). Since this framework leverages the intrinsic properties of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation used to model the state of the system, it is extremely fast. Several examples are given to demonstrate the performance of the robust control solution and the trade-off between the robustness and the optimality. © 2013 IEEE.

    Analytic solutions for cylindrical thermal waves in solid medium is given based on the nonlinear hyperbolic system of heat flux relaxation and energy conservation equations. The Fourier-Cattaneo phenomenological law is generalized where the relaxation time and heat propagation coefficient have a general power law temperature dependence. From such laws one cannot form a second order parabolic or telegraph-type equation. We consider the original non-linear hyperbolic system itself with the self-similar Ansatz for the temperature distribution and for the heat flux. As results continuous and shock-wave solutions are presented. For physical establishment numerous materials with various temperature dependent heat conduction coefficients are mentioned.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pan, JianHua; Ren, YuXin

    2017-08-01

    In this paper, a family of sub-cell finite volume schemes for solving the hyperbolic conservation laws is proposed and analyzed in one-dimensional cases. The basic idea of this method is to subdivide a control volume (main cell) into several sub-cells and the finite volume discretization is applied to each of the sub-cells. The averaged values on the sub-cells of current and face neighboring main cells are used to reconstruct the polynomial distributions of the dependent variables. This method can achieve arbitrarily high order of accuracy using a compact stencil. It is similar to the spectral volume method incorporating with PNPM technique but with fundamental differences. An elaborate utilization of these differences overcomes some shortcomings of the spectral volume method and results in a family of accurate and robust schemes for solving the hyperbolic conservation laws. In this paper, the basic formulation of the proposed method is presented. The Fourier analysis is performed to study the properties of the one-dimensional schemes. A WENO limiter based on the secondary reconstruction is constructed.

    2008-01-01

    @@ Based on the Lie-group and Gauss-Legendre methods, two kinds of square-conservative integrators for squareconservative nonlinear evolution equations are presented. Lie-group based square-conservative integrators are linearly implicit, while Gauss-Legendre based square-conservative integrators are nonlinearly implicit and iterarive schemes are needed to solve the corresponding integrators. These two kinds of integrators provide natural candidates for simulating square-conservative nonlinear evolution equations in the sense that these integrators not only preserve the square-conservative properties of the continuous equations but also are nonlinearly stable.Numerical experiments are performed to test the presented integrators.

  9. Non-linear equation: energy conservation and impact parameter dependence

    CERN Document Server

    Kormilitzin, Andrey

    2010-01-01

    In this paper we address two questions: how energy conservation affects the solution to the non-linear equation, and how impact parameter dependence influences the inclusive production. Answering the first question we solve the modified BK equation which takes into account energy conservation. In spite of the fact that we used the simplified kernel, we believe that the main result of the paper: the small ($\\leq 40%$) suppression of the inclusive productiondue to energy conservation, reflects a general feature. This result leads us to believe that the small value of the nuclear modification factor is of a non-perturbative nature. In the solution a new scale appears $Q_{fr} = Q_s \\exp(-1/(2 \\bas))$ and the production of dipoles with the size larger than $2/Q_{fr}$ is suppressed. Therefore, we can expect that the typical temperature for hadron production is about $Q_{fr}$ ($ T \\approx Q_{fr}$). The simplified equation allows us to obtain a solution to Balitsky-Kovchegov equation taking into account the impact pa...

    1999-01-01

    These proceedings contain, in two volumes, approximately one hundred papers presented at the conference on hyperbolic problems, which has focused to a large extent on the laws of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation. Two-fifths of the papers are devoted to mathematical aspects such as global existence, uniqueness, asymptotic behavior such as large time stability, stability and instabilities of waves and structures, various limits of the solution, the Riemann problem and so on. Roughly the same number of articles are devoted to numerical analysis, for example stability and convergence of numerical schemes, as well as schemes with special desired properties such as shock capturing, interface fitting and high-order approximations to multidimensional systems. The results in these contributions, both theoretical and numerical, encompass a wide range of applications such as nonlinear waves in solids, various computational fluid dynamics from small-scale combustion to relativistic astrophysical problems, multiphase phe...

    2013-12-01

    Electromagnetic metamaterials, artificial media created by subwavelength structuring, are useful for engineering electromagnetic space and controlling light propagation. Such materials exhibit many unusual properties that are rarely or never observed in nature. They can be employed to realize useful functionalities in emerging metadevices based on light. Here, we review hyperbolic metamaterials -- one of the most unusual classes of electromagnetic metamaterials. They display hyperbolic (or indefinite) dispersion, which originates from one of the principal components of their electric or magnetic effective tensor having the opposite sign to the other two principal components. Such anisotropic structured materials exhibit distinctive properties, including strong enhancement of spontaneous emission, diverging density of states, negative refraction and enhanced superlensing effects.

    The approximate analytical frequency chirps and the critical distances for cross-phase modulation induced optical wave breaking (OWB) of the initial hyperbolic-secant optical pulses propagating in optical fibers with quintic nonlinearity (QN) are presented. The pulse evolutions in terms of the frequency chirps, shapes and spectra are numerically calculated in the normal dispersion regime. The results reveal that, depending on different QN parameters, the traditional OWB or soliton or soliton pulse trains may occur. The approximate analytical critical distances are found to be in good agreement with the numerical ones only for the traditional OWB whereas the approximate analytical frequency chirps accords well with the numerical ones at the initial evolution stages of the pulses.

    With the aid of symbolic computation, some algorithms are presented for the rational expansion methods, which lead to closed-form solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs). The new algorithms are given to find exact rational formal polynomial solutions of PDEs in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions, solutions of the Riccati equation and solutions of the generalized Riccati equation. They can be implemented in symbolic computation system Maple. As applications of the methods, we choose some nonlinear PDEs to illustrate the methods. As a result, we not only can successfully obtain the solutions found by most existing Jacobi elliptic function methods and Tanh-methods, but also find other new and more general solutions at the same time.

    2016-01-01

    We demonstrate that light is subject to anomalous (i.e., negative) diffraction when propagating in the presence of hyperbolic dispersion. We show that light propagation in hyperbolic media resembles the dynamics of a quantum particle of negative mass moving in a two-dimensional potential. The negative effective mass implies time reversal if the medium is homogeneous. Such property paves the way to diffraction compensation, spatial analogue of dispersion compensating fibers in the temporal domain. At variance with materials exhibiting standard elliptic dispersion, in inhomogeneous hyperbolic materials light waves are pulled towards regions with a lower refractive index. In the presence of a Kerr-like optical response, bright (dark) solitons are supported by a negative (positive) nonlinearity.

    2004-01-01

    A system whose energy is not conserved is called nonconservative. To investigate if there exists a conserved quantity that has the same dimension as energy and is positively definite, the author analyzed the bending vibration of an axially moving beam with geometric nonlinearity.Based on the governing equation, the energy was proven to be not conserved in the case where the beam has two simply supported or fixed ends. A definitely positive quantity with the energy dimension was defined. The quantity was verified to remain a constant during the motion. The investigation indicates that an energy-like conserved quantity may exist in a nonlinear nonconservative continuous system.

  19. Ray equations of a weak shock in a hyperbolic system of conservation laws in multi-dimensions

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Phoolan Prasad

    2016-05-01

    In this paper we give a complete proof of a theorem, which states that ‘for a weak shock, the shock ray velocity is equal to the mean of the ray velocities of nonlinear wavefronts just ahead and just behind the shock, provided we take the wavefronts ahead and behind to be instantaneously coincident with the shock front. Similarly, the rate of turning of the shock front is also equal to the mean of the rates of turning of such wavefronts just ahead and just behind the shock’. A particular case of this theorem for shock propagation in gasdynamics has been used extensively in applications. Since it is useful also in other physical systems, we present here the theorem in its most general form.

    2012-01-01

    "Hyperbolic Chaos: A Physicist’s View” presents recent progress on uniformly hyperbolic attractors in dynamical systems from a physical rather than mathematical perspective (e.g. the Plykin attractor, the Smale – Williams solenoid). The structurally stable attractors manifest strong stochastic properties, but are insensitive to variation of functions and parameters in the dynamical systems. Based on these characteristics of hyperbolic chaos, this monograph shows how to find hyperbolic chaotic attractors in physical systems and how to design a physical systems that possess hyperbolic chaos.   This book is designed as a reference work for university professors and researchers in the fields of physics, mechanics, and engineering.   Dr. Sergey P. Kuznetsov is a professor at the Department of Nonlinear Processes, Saratov State University, Russia.  

  1. A simple two-dimensional extension of the HLL Riemann solver for hyperbolic systems of conservation laws

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vides, Jeaniffer; Nkonga, Boniface; Audit, Edouard

    2015-01-01

    We derive a simple method to numerically approximate the solution of the two-dimensional Riemann problem for gas dynamics, using the literal extension of the well-known HLL formalism as its basis. Essentially, any strategy attempting to extend the three-state HLL Riemann solver to multiple space dimensions will by some means involve a piecewise constant approximation of the complex two-dimensional interaction of waves, and our numerical scheme is not the exception. In order to determine closed form expressions for the involved fluxes, we rely on the equivalence between the consistency condition and the use of Rankine-Hugoniot conditions that hold across the outermost waves. The proposed scheme is carefully designed to simplify its eventual numerical implementation and its advantages are analytically attested. In addition, we show that the proposed solver can be applied to obtain the edge-centered electric fields needed in the constrained transport technique for the ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. We present several numerical results for hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics that display the scheme's accuracy and its ability to be applied to various systems of conservation laws.

    Finite-difference (FD) approaches to the numerical solution of the differential equations describing the motion of a nonlinear conservative oscillator are investigated analytically. A generalized formulation of the Duffing and modified Duffing equations is derived and analyzed using several FD techniques, and it is concluded that, although it is always possible to contstruct FD models of conservative oscillators which are themselves conservative, caution is required to avoid numerical solutions which do not accurately reflect the properties of the original equation.

We prove that the ill-posed Boussinesq equation is nonlinearly self-adjoint. Using this property and Lie point symmetries, we construct conservation laws for the underlying equation. In addition, the generalized solitonary, periodic and compact-like solutions are constructed by the exp-function method.

  8. Covariant Hyperbolization of Force-free Electrodynamics

    CERN Document Server

    Carrasco, Federico

    2016-01-01

    Force-Free Flectrodynamics (FFE) is a non-linear system of equations modeling the evolution of the electromagnetic field, in the presence of a magnetically dominated relativistic plasma. This configuration arises on several astrophysical scenarios, which represent exciting laboratories to understand physics in extreme regimes. We show that this system, when restricted to the correct constraint submanifold, is symmetric hyperbolic. In numerical applications is not feasible to keep the system in that submanifold, and so, it is necessary to analyze its structure first in the tangent space of that submanifold and then in a whole neighborhood of it. As already shown by Pfeiffer, a direct (or naive) formulation of this system (in the whole tangent space) results in a weakly hyperbolic system of evolution equations for which well-possednes for the initial value formulation does not follows. Using the generalized symmetric hyperbolic formalism due to Geroch, we introduce here a covariant hyperbolization for the FFE s...

    2015-06-01

    We propose a novel mechanism for designing quantum hyperbolic metamaterials with the use of semiconductor Bragg mirrors containing periodically arranged quantum wells. The hyperbolic dispersion of exciton-polariton modes is realized near the top of the first allowed photonic miniband in such a structure which leads to the formation of exciton-polariton X waves. Exciton-light coupling provides a resonant nonlinearity which leads to nontrivial topologic solutions. We predict the formation of low amplitude spatially localized oscillatory structures: oscillons described by kink shaped solutions of the effective Ginzburg-Landau-Higgs equation. The oscillons have direct analogies in gravitational theory. We discuss implementation of exciton-polariton Higgs fields for the Schrödinger cat state generation.

    In this paper, a method that can be used to construct the infinitely-many conservation laws with the Lax pair is generalized from the (1+1)-dimensional nonlinear evolution equations (NLEEs) to the (2+1)-dimensional ones. Besides, we apply that method to the Kadomtsev– Petviashvili (KP) and Davey–Stewartson equations in fluids, and respectively obtain their infinitelymany conservation laws with symbolic computation. Based on that method, we can also construct the infinitely-many conservation laws for other multidimensional NLEEs possessing the Lax pairs, including the cylindrical KP, modified KP and (2+1)-dimensional Gardner equations, in fluids, plasmas, optical fibres and Bose–Einstein condensates.

    Strongly anisotropic media where the principal components of electric permittivity or magnetic permeability tensors have opposite signs are termed as hyperbolic media. Such media support propagating electromagnetic waves with extremely large wave vectors exhibiting unique optical properties. However, in all artificial and natural optical materials studied to date, the hyperbolic dispersion originates solely from the electric response. This restricts material functionality to one polarization of light and inhibits free-space impedance matching. Such restrictions can be overcome in media having components of opposite signs for both electric and magnetic tensors. Here we present the experimental demonstration of the magnetic hyperbolic dispersion in three-dimensional metamaterials. We measure metamaterial isofrequency contours and reveal the topological phase transition between the elliptic and hyperbolic dispersion. In the hyperbolic regime, we demonstrate the strong enhancement of thermal emission, which becomes directional, coherent and polarized. Our findings show the possibilities for realizing efficient impedance-matched hyperbolic media for unpolarized light.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    WU Jun-Yi; DING Qing; Keti Tenenblat

    2006-01-01

    In this paper, we introduce the notion of a (2+1)-dimensional differential equation describing threedimensional hyperbolic spaces (3-h.s.). The (2+1)-dimensional coupled nonlinear Schrodinger equation and its sister equation, the (2+1)-dimensional coupled derivative nonlinear Schrodinger equation, are shown to describe 3-h.s. The (2+1)-dimensional generalized HF model: St = (1/2i [S, Sy] + 2iσS)x, σx = 1-4itr(SSxSy), in which S ∈ GLC(2)/GLC(1)×GLC(1),provides another example of (2+1)-dimensional differential equations describing 3-h.s. As a direct consequence, the geometric construction of an infinite number of conservation laws of such equations is illustrated. Furthermore we display a new infinite number of conservation laws of the (2+1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation and the (2+1)odimensional derivative nonlinear Schrodinger equation by a geometric way.

    CERN Document Server

    Teruel, Ginés R Pérez

    2015-01-01

    In this work we revisit the study of the gravitational interaction in the context of the Special Theory of Relativity. It is found that, as long as the equivalence principle is respected, a relativistic non-linear energy conservation theorem arises in a natural way. We interpret that this non-linear conservation law stresses the non-linear character of the gravitational interaction.The theorem reproduces the energy conservation theorem of Newtonian mechanics in the corresponding low energy limit, but also allows to derive some standard results of post-Newtonian gravity, such as the formula of the gravitational redshift. Guided by this conservation law, we develop a Lagrangian formalism for a particle in a gravitational field. We realize that the Lagrangian can be written in an explicit covariant fashion, and turns out to be the geodesic Lagrangian of a curved Lorentzian manifold. Therefore, any attempt to describe gravity within the Special Theory, leads outside their own domains towards a curved space-time. ...

    2014-01-01

    © 2014 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. This paper proposes an explicit, (at least) second-order, maximum principle satisfying, Lagrange finite element method for solving nonlinear scalar conservation equations. The technique is based on a new viscous bilinear form introduced in Guermond and Nazarov [Comput. Methods Appl. Mech. Engrg., 272 (2014), pp. 198-213], a high-order entropy viscosity method, and the Boris-Book-Zalesak flux correction technique. The algorithm works for arbitrary meshes in any space dimension and for all Lipschitz fluxes. The formal second-order accuracy of the method and its convergence properties are tested on a series of linear and nonlinear benchmark problems.

    Developing stable and robust high-order finite difference schemes requires mathematical formalism and appropriate methods of analysis. In this work, nonlinear entropy stability is used to derive provably stable high-order finite difference methods with formal boundary closures for conservation laws. Particular emphasis is placed on the entropy stability of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. A newly derived entropy stable weighted essentially non-oscillatory finite difference method is used to simulate problems with shocks and a conservative, entropy stable, narrow-stencil finite difference approach is used to approximate viscous terms.

    Chossat, Pascal; Faugeras, Olivier

    2010-01-01

    Motivated by a model for the perception of textures by the visual cortex in primates, we analyse the bifurcation of periodic patterns for nonlinear equations describing the state of a system defined on the space of structure tensors, when these equations are further invariant with respect to the isometries of this space. We show that the problem reduces to a bifurcation problem in the hyperbolic plane D (Poincar\\'e disc). We make use of the concept of periodic lattice in D to further reduce the problem to one on a compact Riemann surface D/T, where T is a cocompact, torsion-free Fuchsian group. The knowledge of the symmetry group of this surface allows to carry out the machinery of equivariant bifurcation theory. Solutions which generically bifurcate are called "H-planforms", by analogy with the "planforms" introduced for pattern formation in Euclidean space. This concept is applied to the case of an octagonal periodic pattern, where we are able to classify all possible H-planforms satisfying the hypotheses o...

    We derive a new method for a coupled nonlinear Schr(o)dinger system by using the square of first-order Fourier spectral differentiation matrix D1 instead of traditional second-order Fourier spectral differentiation matrix D2 to approximate the second derivative.We prove the proposed method preserves the charge and energy conservation laws exactly.In numerical tests,we display the accuracy of numerical solution and the role of the nonlinear coupling parameter in cases of soliton collisions.Numerical experiments also exhibit the excellent performance of the method in preserving the charge and energy conservation laws.These numerical results verify that the proposed method is both a charge-preserving and an energy-preserving algorithm.

    A new hyperbolic metamaterial based on a modified semiconductor Bragg mirror structure with embedded periodically arranged quantum wells is proposed. It is shown that exciton polaritons in this material feature hyperbolic dispersion in the vicinity of the second photonic band gap. Exciton-photon interaction brings about resonant nonlinearity leading to the emergence of nontrivial topological polaritonic states. The formation of spatially localized breather-type structures (oscillons) representing kink-shaped solutions of the effective Ginzburg-Landau-Higgs equation slightly oscillating along one spatial direction is predicted.

Existence and uniqueness of solutions to the wave equation in the Colombeau algebra G is established for a conical space-time and this solution is shown to be associated to a distributional solution. A concept of generalised hyperbolicity, based on test fields, can be defined for such singular space-times and it is shown that a conical space-time is G-hyperbolic.

The improved algorithm is more efficient not only in removing the redundant terms of the general form of the conserved densities but also in solving the conserved densities with the associated flux synchronously without using Euler operator. Furthermore, the program conslaw. mpl can be used to determine the preferences for a given parameterized nonlinear evolution systems. The code is tested on several well-known nonlinear evolution equations from the soliton theory.

  9. Hyperbolic neighborhoods as organizers of finite-time exponential stretching

    Balasuriya, Sanjeeva; Ouellette, Nicholas

    2016-11-01

    Hyperbolic points and their unsteady generalization, hyperbolic trajectories, drive the exponential stretching that is the hallmark of nonlinear and chaotic flow. Typical experimental and observational velocity data is unsteady and available only over a finite time interval, and in such situations hyperbolic trajectories will move around in the flow, and may lose their hyperbolicity at times. Here we introduce a way to determine their region of influence, which we term a hyperbolic neighborhood, which marks fluid elements whose dynamics are instantaneously dominated by the hyperbolic trajectory. We establish, using both theoretical arguments and numerical verification from model and experimental data, that the hyperbolic neighborhoods profoundly impact Lagrangian stretching experienced by fluid elements. In particular, we show that fluid elements traversing a flow experience exponential boosts in stretching while within these time-varying regions, that greater residence time within hyperbolic neighborhoods is directly correlated to larger Finite-Time Lyapunov Exponent (FTLE) values, and that FTLE diagnostics are reliable only when the hyperbolic neighborhoods have a geometrical structure which is regular in a specific sense.

  13. Energetics and conserved quantity of an axially moving string undergoing three-dimensional nonlinear vibration

    2008-01-01

    Nonlinear three-dimensional vibration of axially moving strings is investigated in the view of energetics. The governing equation is derived from the Eulerian equation of motion of a continuum for axially accelerating strings. The time-rate of the total mechanical energy associated with the vibration is calculated for the string with its ends moving in a prescribed way. For a string moving in a constant axial speed and constrained by two fixed ends, a conserved quan-tity is proved to remain unchanged during three-dimensional vibration, while the string energy is not conserved. An approximate conserved quantity is derived from the con-served quantity in the neighborhood of the straight equilib-rium configuration. The approximate conserved quantity is applied to verify the Lyapunov stability of the straight equi-librium configuration. Numerical simulations are performed for a rubber string and a steel string. The results demonstrate the variation of the total mechanical energy and the invari-ance of the conserved quantity.

  14. Fourth order difference methods for hyperbolic IBVP's

    1994-01-01

    Fourth order difference approximations of initial-boundary value problems for hyperbolic partial differential equations are considered. We use the method of lines approach with both explicit and compact implicit difference operators in space. The explicit operator satisfies an energy estimate leading to strict stability. For the implicit operator we develop boundary conditions and give a complete proof of strong stability using the Laplace transform technique. We also present numerical experiments for the linear advection equation and Burgers' equation with discontinuities in the solution or in its derivative. The first equation is used for modeling contact discontinuities in fluid dynamics, the second one for modeling shocks and rarefaction waves. The time discretization is done with a third order Runge-Kutta TVD method. For solutions with discontinuities in the solution itself we add a filter based on second order viscosity. In case of the non-linear Burger's equation we use a flux splitting technique that results in an energy estimate for certain different approximations, in which case also an entropy condition is fulfilled. In particular we shall demonstrate that the unsplit conservative form produces a non-physical shock instead of the physically correct rarefaction wave. In the numerical experiments we compare our fourth order methods with a standard second order one and with a third order TVD-method. The results show that the fourth order methods are the only ones that give good results for all the considered test problems.

    2015-01-01

    We introduce a class of "weakly asymptotically hyperbolic" geometries whose sectional curvatures tend to $-1$ and are $C^0$, but are not necessarily $C^1$, conformally compact. We subsequently investigate the rate at which curvature invariants decay at infinity, identifying a conformally invariant tensor which serves as an obstruction to "higher order decay" of the Riemann curvature operator. Finally, we establish Fredholm results for geometric elliptic operators, extending the work of Rafe Mazzeo and John M. Lee to this setting. As an application, we show that any weakly asymptotically hyperbolic metric is conformally related to a weakly asymptotically hyperbolic metric of constant negative curvature.

    Strongly anisotropic media where the principal components of the electric permittivity and/or magnetic permeability tensor have opposite signs are termed as hyperbolic media. Such media support propagating electromagnetic waves with extremely large wavevectors, and therefore they exhibit unique optical properties. However in all artificial and natural optical structures studied to date the hyperbolic dispersion originates solely from their electric response. This restricts functionality of these materials for only one polarization of light and inhibits impedance matching with free space. Such restrictions can be overcome in media having components of opposite signs in both electric and magnetic tensors. Here we present the first experimental demonstration of the magnetic hyperbolic dispersion in three-dimensional metamaterials. We measure experimentally metamaterial's dispersion and trace the topological transition between the elliptic and hyperbolic regimes. We experimentally demonstrate that due to the uniq...

    A Fourier pseudo-spectral method that conserves mass and energy is developed for a two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation. By establishing the equivalence between the semi-norm in the Fourier pseudo-spectral method and that in the finite difference method, we are able to extend the result in Ref. [56] to prove that the optimal rate of convergence of the new method is in the order of O (N-r +τ2) in the discrete L2 norm without any restrictions on the grid ratio, where N is the number of modes used in the spectral method and τ is the time step size. A fast solver is then applied to the discrete nonlinear equation system to speed up the numerical computation for the high order method. Numerical examples are presented to show the efficiency and accuracy of the new method.

    2012-01-01

    We present SPH formulations of Dedner et al's hyperbolic/parabolic divergence cleaning scheme for magnetic and velocity fields. Our implementation preserves the conservation properties of SPH which is important for stability. This is achieved by deriving an energy term for the Psi field, and imposing energy conservation on the cleaning subsystem of equations. This necessitates use of conjugate operators for divB and gradPsi in the numerical equations. For both the magnetic and velocity fields, the average divergence error in the system is reduced by an order of magnitude with our cleaning algorithm. Divergence errors in SPMHD are maintained to < 1%, even for realistic 3D applications with a corresponding gain in numerical stability. Density errors for an oscillating elliptic water drop using weakly compressible SPH are reduced by a factor of two.

    We prove the existence of a global semigroup for conservative solutions of the nonlinear variational wave equation $u_{tt}-c(u)(c(u)u_x)_x=0$. We allow for initial data $u|_{t=0}$ and $u_t|_{t=0}$ that contain measures. We assume that $0<\\kappa^{-1}\\le c(u) \\le \\kappa$. Solutions of this equation may experience concentration of the energy density $(u_t^2+c(u)^2u_x^2)dx$ into sets of measure zero. The solution is constructed by introducing new variables related to the characteristics, whereby singularities in the energy density become manageable. Furthermore, we prove that the energy may only focus on a set of times of zero measure or at points where $c'(u)$ vanishes. A new numerical method to construct conservative solutions is provided and illustrated on examples.

    We apply He's homotopy perturbation method to find improved approximate solutions to conservative truly nonlinear oscillators. This approach gives us not only a truly periodic solution but also the period of the motion as a function of the amplitude of oscillation. We find that this method works very well for the whole range of parameters in the case of the cubic oscillator, and excellent agreement of the approximate frequencies with the exact one has been demonstrated and discussed. For the second order approximation we have shown that the relative error in the analytical approximate frequency is approximately 0.03% for any parameter values involved. We also compared the analytical approximate solutions and the Fourier series expansion of the exact solution. This has allowed us to compare the coefficients for the different harmonic terms in these solutions. The most significant features of this method are its simplicity and its excellent accuracy for the whole range of oscillation amplitude values and the results reveal that this technique is very effective and convenient for solving conservative truly nonlinear oscillatory systems.

    This paper develops delay-independent fuzzy hyperbolic guaranteed cost control for nonlinear continuous-time systems with parameter uncertainties. Fuzzy hyperbolic model (FHM) can be used to establish the model for certain unknown complex system. The main advantage of using FHM over Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) fuzzy model is that no premise structure identification is needed and no completeness design of premise variables space is needed. In addition, an FHM is not only a kind of valid global description but also a kind of nonlinear model in nature. A nonlinear quadratic cost function is developed as a performance measurement of the closed-loop fuzzy system based on FHM.Based on delay-independent Lyapunov functional approach, some sufficient conditions for the existence of such a fuzzy hyperbolic guaranteed cost controller via state feedback are provided. These conditions are given in terms of the feasibility of linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). A simulation example is provided to illustrate the design procedure of the proposed method.

The presence of unique electromagnetic states in a broad bandwidth leads to super-planckian thermal energy transfer between metamaterials separated by a nano-gap. We consider practical phonon-polaritonic metamaterials for thermal engineering in the mid-infrared range and show that the effect exists in spite of the losses, absorption and finite unit cell size. For thermophotovoltaic energy conversion applications requiring energy transfer in the near-infrared range we introduce high temperature hyperbolic metamaterials based on plasmonic materials with a high melting point. Our work paves the way for practical high temperature radiative thermal energy transfer applications of hyperbolic metamaterials.

    When engineered on scales much smaller than the operating wavelength, metal-semiconductor nanostructures exhibit properties unobtainable in nature. Namely, a uniaxial optical metamaterial described by a hyperbolic dispersion relation can simultaneously behave as a reflective metal and an absorptive or emissive semiconductor for electromagnetic waves with orthogonal linear polarization states. Using an unconventional multilayer architecture, we demonstrate luminescent hyperbolic metasurfaces, wherein distributed semiconducting quantum wells display extreme absorption and emission polarization anisotropy. Through normally incident micro-photoluminescence measurements, we observe absorption anisotropies greater than a factor of 10 and degree-of-linear polarization of emission >0.9. We observe the modification of emission spectra and, by incorporating wavelength-scale gratings, show a controlled reduction of polarization anisotropy. We verify hyperbolic dispersion with numerical simulations that model the metasurface as a composite nanoscale structure and according to the effective medium approximation. Finally, we experimentally demonstrate >350% emission intensity enhancement relative to the bare semiconducting quantum wells.

The frequency–amplitude relations for the oscillator which the restoring force is inversely proportional to the dependent variable are achieved analytically. The approximate frequency obtained using the coupled method is more accurate than the modified variational approach and ones obtained using other approximate methods and the discrepancy between the approximate frequency using this coupled method and the exact one is lower than 0.31% for the whole range of values of oscillation amplitude. The coupled method provides a very good accuracy and is a promising technique to a lot of practical engineering and physical problems.

A recognition of Beltrami comparable to that given the pioneering works of Bolyai and Lobachevsky seems long overdue-not only because Beltrami rescued hyperbolic geometry from oblivion by proving it to be logically consistent, but because he gave it a concrete meaning (a model) that made hyperbolic geometry part of ordinary mathematics. The models subsequently discovered by Klein and Poincaré brought hyperbolic geometry even further down to earth and paved the way for the current explosion of activity in low-dimensional geometry and topology. By placing the works of these three mathematicians side by side and providing commentaries, this book gives the student, historian, or professional geometer a bird's-eye view of one of the great episodes in mathematics. The unified setting and historical context reveal the insights of Beltrami, Klein, and Po...

    This paper is part of the general project of proof mining, developed by Kohlenbach. By "proof mining" we mean the logical analysis of mathematical proofs with the aim of extracting new numerically relevant information hidden in the proofs. We present logical metatheorems for classes of spaces from functional analysis and hyperbolic geometry, like Gromov hyperbolic spaces, ${\\mathbb R}$-trees and uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces. Our theorems are adaptations to these structures of previous metatheorems of Gerhardy and Kohlenbach, and they guarantee a-priori, under very general logical conditions, the existence of uniform bounds. We give also an application in nonlinear functional analysis, more specifically in metric fixed-point theory. Thus, we show that the uniform bound on the rate of asymptotic regularity for the Krasnoselski-Mann iterations of nonexpansive mappings in uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces obtained in a previous paper is an instance of one of our metatheorems.

    This paper presents an extension to classic component mode synthesis methods to compute the steady-state forced response of nonlinear and dissipative structures. The procedure makes use of the nonlinear complex modes of each substructure, computed by means of a modified harmonic balance method, in order to build a reduced-order model easily solved by standard iterative solvers. The proposed method is applied to a mistuned cyclic structure subjected to dry friction forces, and proves particularly suitable for the study of such systems with high modal density and non-conservative nonlinearities.

We show that the boundary of a Gromov hyperbolic groupoid has a natural local product structure and that actions of hyperbolic groupoids on their boundaries can be described axiomatically as generalized Smale spaces (which we call Smale quasi-flows). The original groupoid is equivalent to the projection of the corresponding Smale quasi-flow onto the stable direction of the local product structure. The projection onto the unstable direction is called the dual of the groupoid. Examples of pairs of mutually dual hyperbolic groupoids and associated Smale quasi-flows are described.

The novel feature of our approach involves the coupling of a linear scalar reaction diffusion equation to our system of conservation laws, whose solution $C(x,t)$ is the coefficient to an additional (and artificial) term added to the flux, which determines both the location and strength of the added viscosity. Near shock discontinuities, $C(x,t)$ is large and localized, and transitions smoothly in space-time to zero away from the shock. This simple approach has two fundamental features: (1) our regularization is at the continuum level--i.e., the level of he partial differential equations (PDE)-- so that any higher-order numerical discretization scheme can be employed, and ...

    The sensitivity of the evolution of quantum uncertainties to the choice of the initial conditions is shown via a complex nonlinear Riccati equation leading to a reformulation of quantum dynamics. This sensitivity is demonstrated for systems with exact analytic solutions with the form of Gaussian wave packets. In particular, one-dimensional conservative systems with at most quadratic Hamiltonians are studied.

  8. Comment on “Conservation Laws of Two (2 + 1-Dimensional Nonlinear Evolution Equations with Higher-Order Mixed Derivatives”

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Long Wei

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available In a recent paper (Zhang (2013, the author claims that he has proposed two rules to modify Ibragimov’s theorem on conservation laws to “ensure the theorem can be applied to nonlinear evolution equations with any mixed derivatives.” In this letter, we analysis the paper. Indeed, the so-called “modification rules” are needless and the theorem of Ibragimov can be applied to construct conservation laws directly for nonlinear equations with any mixed derivatives as long as the formal Lagrangian is rewritten in symmetric form. Moreover, the conservation laws obtained by the so-called “modification rules” in the paper under discussion are equivalent to the one obtained by Ibragimov’s theorem.

  9. Hyperbolicity of projective hypersurfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Diverio, Simone

    2016-01-01

    This book presents recent advances on Kobayashi hyperbolicity in complex geometry, especially in connection with projective hypersurfaces. This is a very active field, not least because of the fascinating relations with complex algebraic and arithmetic geometry. Foundational works of Serge Lang and Paul A. Vojta, among others, resulted in precise conjectures regarding the interplay of these research fields (e.g. existence of Zariski dense entire curves should correspond to the (potential) density of rational points). Perhaps one of the conjectures which generated most activity in Kobayashi hyperbolicity theory is the one formed by Kobayashi himself in 1970 which predicts that a very general projective hypersurface of degree large enough does not contain any (non-constant) entire curves. Since the seminal work of Green and Griffiths in 1979, later refined by J.-P. Demailly, J. Noguchi, Y.-T. Siu and others, it became clear that a possible general strategy to attack this problem was to look at particular algebr...

  10. Asymptotically hyperbolic connections

    CERN Document Server

    Fine, Joel; Krasnov, Kirill; Scarinci, Carlos

    2015-01-01

    General Relativity in 4 dimensions can be equivalently described as a dynamical theory of SO(3)-connections rather than metrics. We introduce the notion of asymptotically hyperbolic connections, and work out an analog of the Fefferman-Graham expansion in the language of connections. As in the metric setup, one can solve the arising "evolution" equations order by order in the expansion in powers of the radial coordinate. The solution in the connection setting is arguably simpler, and very straightforward algebraic manipulations allow one to see how the obstruction appears at third order in the expansion. Another interesting feature of the connection formulation is that the "counter terms" required in the computation of the renormalised volume all combine into the Chern-Simons functional of the restriction of the connection to the boundary. As the Chern-Simons invariant is only defined modulo large gauge transformations, the requirement that the path integral over asymptotically hyperbolic connections is well-d...

  11. Shadowing and hyperbolicity

    CERN Document Server

    Pilyugin, Sergei Yu

    2017-01-01

    Focusing on the theory of shadowing of approximate trajectories (pseudotrajectories) of dynamical systems, this book surveys recent progress in establishing relations between shadowing and such basic notions from the classical theory of structural stability as hyperbolicity and transversality. Special attention is given to the study of "quantitative" shadowing properties, such as Lipschitz shadowing (it is shown that this property is equivalent to structural stability both for diffeomorphisms and smooth flows), and to the passage to robust shadowing (which is also equivalent to structural stability in the case of diffeomorphisms, while the situation becomes more complicated in the case of flows). Relations between the shadowing property of diffeomorphisms on their chain transitive sets and the hyperbolicity of such sets are also described. The book will allow young researchers in the field of dynamical systems to gain a better understanding of new ideas in the global qualitative theory. It will also be of int...

  12. Asymptotically hyperbolic connections

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fine, Joel; Herfray, Yannick; Krasnov, Kirill; Scarinci, Carlos

    2016-09-01

    General relativity in four-dimensions can be equivalently described as a dynamical theory of {SO}(3)˜ {SU}(2)-connections rather than metrics. We introduce the notion of asymptotically hyperbolic connections, and work out an analogue of the Fefferman-Graham expansion in the language of connections. As in the metric setup, one can solve the arising ‘evolution’ equations order by order in the expansion in powers of the radial coordinate. The solution in the connection setting is arguably simpler, and very straightforward algebraic manipulations allow one to see how the unconstrained by Einstein equations ‘stress-energy tensor’ appears at third order in the expansion. Another interesting feature of the connection formulation is that the ‘counter terms’ required in the computation of the renormalised volume all combine into the Chern-Simons functional of the restriction of the connection to the boundary. As the Chern-Simons invariant is only defined modulo large gauge transformations, the requirement that the path integral over asymptotically hyperbolic connections is well-defined requires the cosmological constant to be quantised. Finally, in the connection setting one can deform the 4D Einstein condition in an interesting way, and we show that asymptotically hyperbolic connection expansion is universal and valid for any of the deformed theories.

  13. Non-Conservative Variational Approximation for Nonlinear Schrodinger Equations and its Applications

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rossi, Julia M.

    Recently, Galley [Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 174301 (2013)] proposed an initial value problem formulation of Hamilton's principle applied to non-conservative systems. Here, we explore this formulation for complex partial differential equations of the nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) type, using the non-conservative variational approximation (NCVA) outlined by Galley. We compare the formalism of the NCVA to two variational techniques used in dissipative systems; namely, the perturbed variational approximation and a generalization of the so-called Kantorovitch method. We showcase the relevance of the NCVA method by exploring test case examples within the NLS setting including combinations of linear and density dependent loss and gain. We also present an example applied to exciton-polariton condensates that intrinsically feature loss and a spatially dependent gain term. We also study a variant of the NLS used in optical systems called the Lugiato-Lefever (LL) model applied to (i) spontaneous temporal symmetry breaking instability in a coherently-driven optical Kerr resonator observed experimentally by Xu and Coen in Opt. Lett. 39, 3492 (2014) and (ii) temporal tweezing of cavity solitons in a passive loop of optical fiber pumped by a continuous-wave laser beam observed experimentally by Jang, Erkintalo, Coen, and Murdoch in Nat. Commun. 6, 7370 (2015). For application (i) we perform a detailed stability analysis and analyze the temporal bifurcation structure of stationary symmetric configurations and the emerging asymmetric states as a function of the pump power. For intermediate pump powers a pitchfork loop is responsible for the destabilization of symmetric states towards stationary asymmetric ones while at large pump powers we find the emergence of periodic asymmetric solutions via a Hopf bifurcation. For application (ii) we study the existence and dynamics of cavity solitons through phase-modulation of the holding beam. We find parametric regions for the manipulation of

    CERN Document Server

    Pettersson, Mass Per; Nordström, Jan

    2015-01-01

    This monograph presents computational techniques and numerical analysis to study conservation laws under uncertainty using the stochastic Galerkin formulation. With the continual growth of computer power, these methods are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to more classical sampling-based techniques. The approach described in the text takes advantage of stochastic Galerkin projections applied to the original conservation laws to produce a large system of modified partial differential equations, the solutions to which directly provide a full statistical characterization of the effect of uncertainties. Polynomial Chaos Methods of Hyperbolic Partial Differential Equations focuses on the analysis of stochastic Galerkin systems obtained for linear and non-linear convection-diffusion equations and for a systems of conservation laws; a detailed well-posedness and accuracy analysis is presented to enable the design of robust and stable numerical methods. The exposition is restricted to one spatial dime...

    We investigate distributions of hyperbolic Bessel processes. We find links between the hyperbolic cosinus of the hyperbolic Bessel processes and the functionals of geometric Brownian motion. We present an explicit formula of Laplace transform of hyperbolic cosinus of hyperbolic Bessel processes and some interesting different probabilistic representations of this Laplace transform. We express the one-dimensional distribution of hyperbolic Bessel process in terms of other, known and independent processes. We present some applications including a new proof of Bougerol's identity and it's generalization. We characterize the distribution of the process being hyperbolic sinus of hyperbolic Bessel processes.

    Full Text Available We study the asymptotic equivalence of the Jin-Xin relaxation model and its formal limit for genuinely nonlinear $2imes 2$ conservation laws. The initial data is allowed to have jump discontinuities corresponding to centered rarefaction waves, which includes Riemann data connected by rarefaction curves. We show that, as long as the initial data is a small perturbation of a constant state, the solution for the relaxation system exists globally in time and converges, in the zero relaxation limit, to the solution of the corresponding conservation law uniformly except for an initial layer.

    2016-01-01

    A thermal antenna is an electromagnetic source which emits in its surrounding, a spatially coherent field in the infrared frequency range. Usually, its emission pattern changes with the wavelength so that the heat flux it radiates is weakly directive. Here, we show that a class of hyperbolic materials, possesses a Brewster angle which is weakly dependent on the wavelength, so that they can radiate like a true thermal antenna with a highly directional heat flux. The realization of these sources could open a new avenue in the field of thermal management in far-field regime.

    The construction of conserved vectors using Noether's theorem via a knowledge of a Lagrangian (or via the recently developed concept of partial Lagrangians) is well known. The formulas to determine these for higher order flows are somewhat cumbersome but peculiar and become more so as the order increases. We carry out these for a class of high-order partial differential equations from mathematical physics and then consider some specific ones with mixed derivatives. In the latter set of examples, our main focus is that the resultant conserved flows display some previously unknown interesting 'divergence properties' owing to the presence of the mixed derivatives. Overall, we consider a large class of equations of interest and construct some new conservation laws.

    CERN Document Server

    Coornaert, Michel

    1993-01-01

    Gromov's theory of hyperbolic groups have had a big impact in combinatorial group theory and has deep connections with many branches of mathematics suchdifferential geometry, representation theory, ergodic theory and dynamical systems. This book is an elaboration on some ideas of Gromov on hyperbolic spaces and hyperbolic groups in relation with symbolic dynamics. Particular attention is paid to the dynamical system defined by the action of a hyperbolic group on its boundary. The boundary is most oftenchaotic both as a topological space and as a dynamical system, and a description of this boundary and the action is given in terms of subshifts of finite type. The book is self-contained and includes two introductory chapters, one on Gromov's hyperbolic geometry and the other one on symbolic dynamics. It is intended for students and researchers in geometry and in dynamical systems, and can be used asthe basis for a graduate course on these subjects.

    2017-02-01

    A large variety of interacting complex systems are characterized by interactions occurring between more than two nodes. These systems are described by simplicial complexes. Simplicial complexes are formed by simplices (nodes, links, triangles, tetrahedra etc.) that have a natural geometric interpretation. As such simplicial complexes are widely used in quantum gravity approaches that involve a discretization of spacetime. Here, by extending our knowledge of growing complex networks to growing simplicial complexes we investigate the nature of the emergent geometry of complex networks and explore whether this geometry is hyperbolic. Specifically we show that an hyperbolic network geometry emerges spontaneously from models of growing simplicial complexes that are purely combinatorial. The statistical and geometrical properties of the growing simplicial complexes strongly depend on their dimensionality and display the major universal properties of real complex networks (scale-free degree distribution, small-world and communities) at the same time. Interestingly, when the network dynamics includes an heterogeneous fitness of the faces, the growing simplicial complex can undergo phase transitions that are reflected by relevant changes in the network geometry.

  5. Fourth-Order Difference Methods for Hyperbolic IBVPs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gustafsson, Bertil; Olsson, Pelle

    1995-03-01

    In this paper we consider fourth-order difference approximations of initial-boundary value problems for hyperbolic partial differential equations. We use the method of lines approach with both explicit and compact implicit difference operators in space. The explicit operator satisfies an energy estimate leading to strict stability. For the implicit operator we develop boundary conditions and give a complete proof of strong stability using the Laplace transform technique. We also present numerical experiments for the linear advection equation and Burgers' equation with discontinuities in the solution or in its derivative. The first equation is used for modeling contact discontinuities in fluid dynamics; the second one is used for modeling shocks and rarefaction waves. The time discretization is done with a third-order Runge-Kutta TVD method. For solutions with discontinuities in the solution itself we add a filter based on second-order viscosity. In case of the non-linear Burgers' equation we use a flux splitting technique that results in an energy estimate for certain difference approximations, in which case also an entropy condition is fulfilled. In particular we shall demonstrate that the unsplit conservative form produces a non-physical shock instead of the physically correct rarefaction wave. In the numerical experiments we compare our fourth-order methods with a standard second-order one and with a third-order TVD method. The results show that the fourth-order methods are the only ones that give good results for all the considered test problems.

  7. Platonic hyperbolic monopoles

    CERN Document Server

    Manton, Nicholas

    2014-01-01

    We construct a number of explicit examples of hyperbolic monopoles, with various charges and often with some platonic symmetry. The fields are obtained from instanton data in four-dimensional Euclidean space that are invariant under a circle action, and the monopole charge is equal to the instanton charge. A key ingredient is the identification of a new set of constraints on ADHM instanton data that are sufficient to ensure the circle invariance. Algebraic formulae for the Higgs field magnitude are given and from these we compute and illustrate the energy density of the monopoles. For particular monopoles, the explicit formulae provide a proof that the number of zeros of the Higgs field is greater than the monopole charge. We also present some one-parameter families of monopoles analogous to known scattering events for Euclidean monopoles within the geodesic approximation.

  8. Hyperbolically Shaped Centrifugal Compressor

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Romuald Puzyrewski; Pawel Flaszy(n)ski

    2003-01-01

    Starting from the classical centrifugal compressor, cone shaped in meridional cross section, two modifications are considered on the basis of results from 2D and 3D flow models. The first modification is the change of the meridional cross section to hyperbolically shaped channel. The second modification, proposed on the basis of 2D axisymmetric solution, concerns the shape of blading. On the strength of this solution the blades are formed as 3D shaped blades, coinciding with the recent tendency in 3D designs. Two aims were considered for the change of meridional compressor shape. The first was to remove the separation zone which appears as the flow tums from axial to radial direction. The second aim is to uniformize the flow at exit of impeller. These two goals were considered within the frame of 2D axisymmetric model. Replacing the cone shaped compressor by a hyperbolically shaped one, the separation at the corner was removed. The disc and shroud shape of the compressor was chosen in the way which satisfies the condition of most uniform flow at the compressor exit. The uniformity of exit flow from the rotor can be considered as the factor which influences the performance of the diffuser following the rotor. In the 2D model a family of stream surfaces of S1 type is given in order to find S2 surfaces which may be identified with the midblade surfaces of compressor blading. A computation of 3D type has been performed in order to establish the relations between 2D and 3D models in the calculation of flow parameters. In the presented example the 2D model appears as the inverse model which leads to 3D shape of blading whereas the 3D model has been used for the direct solution. In the presented example the confrontation of two models, 2D and 3D, leads to a better understanding of the application of these models to the design procedure.

    Hyperbolic discounting of future outcomes is widely observed to underlie choice behavior in animals. Additionally, recent studies (Kobayashi & Schultz, 2008) have reported that hyperbolic discounting is observed even in neural systems underlying choice. However, the most prevalent models of temporal discounting, such as temporal difference learning, assume that future outcomes are discounted exponentially. Exponential discounting has been preferred largely because it is able to be expressed r...

    In this paper, we investigate two hyperbolic flows obtained by adding forcing terms in direction of the position vector to the hyperbolic mean curvature flows in \\cite{klw,hdl}. For the first hyperbolic flow, as in \\cite{klw}, by using support function, we reduce it to a hyperbolic Monge-Amp$\\grave{\\rm{e}}$re equation successfully, leading to the short-time existence of the flow by the standard theory of hyperbolic partial differential equation. If the initial velocity is non-negative and the coefficient function of the forcing term is non-positive, we also show that there exists a class of initial velocities such that the solution of the flow exists only on a finite time interval $[0,T_{max})$, and the solution converges to a point or shocks and other propagating discontinuities are generated when $t\\rightarrow{T_{max}}$. These generalize the corresponding results in \\cite{klw}. For the second hyperbolic flow, as in \\cite{hdl}, we can prove the system of partial differential equations related to the flow is ...

    For a hyperbolic Brownian motion on the Poincar\\'e half-plane $\\mathbb{H}^2$, starting from a point of hyperbolic coordinates $z=(\\eta, \\alpha)$ inside a hyperbolic disc $U$ of radius $\\bar{\\eta}$, we obtain the probability of hitting the boundary $\\partial U$ at the point $(\\bar \\eta,\\bar \\alpha)$. For $\\bar{\\eta} \\to \\infty$ we derive the asymptotic Cauchy hitting distribution on $\\partial \\mathbb{H}^2$ and for small values of $\\eta$ and $\\bar \\eta$ we obtain the classical Euclidean Poisson kernel. The exit probabilities $\\mathbb{P}_z\\{T_{\\eta_1}hyperbolic annulus in $\\mathbb{H}^2$ of radii $\\eta_1$ and $\\eta_2$ are derived and the transient behaviour of hyperbolic Brownian motion is considered. Similar probabilities are calculated also for a Brownian motion on the surface of the three dimensional sphere.

  14. A stochastic Galerkin method for first-order quasilinear hyperbolic systems with uncertainty

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wu, Kailiang; Tang, Huazhong; Xiu, Dongbin

    2017-09-01

    This paper is concerned with generalized polynomial chaos (gPC) approximation for first-order quasilinear hyperbolic systems with uncertainty. The one-dimensional (1D) hyperbolic system is first symmetrized with the aid of left eigenvector matrix of the Jacobian matrix. Then the gPC stochastic Galerkin method is applied to derive a provably symmetrically hyperbolic equations for the gPC expansion coefficients. The resulting deterministic gPC Galerkin system is discretized by a path-conservative finite volume WENO scheme in space and a third-order total variation diminishing Runge-Kutta method in time. The method is further extended to two-dimensional (2D) quasilinear hyperbolic system with uncertainty, where the symmetric hyperbolicity of the one-dimensional gPC Galerkin system is carried over via an operator splitting technique. Several numerical experiments are conducted to demonstrate the accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed gPC stochastic Galerkin method.

    We obtain an asymptotic solution for $\\ep \\to 0$ of the Cauchy problem for linear first-order symmetric hyperbolic systems with oscillatory initial values written in the eikonal form of geometric optics with frequency $1/\\ep$, but with complex phases. For the most common linear wave propagation models, this kind on Cauchy problems are well-known in the applied literature and their asymptotic theory, referred to as complex geometric optics, is attracting interest for applications. In this work, which is the first of a series of papers dedicated to complex geometric optics for nonlinear symmetric hyperbolic systems, we develop a rigorous linear theory and set the basis for the subsequent nonlinear analysis.

    2016-12-01

    The construction of the ternary Cantor set is generalized into the context of hyperbolic numbers. The partial order structure of hyperbolic numbers is revealed and the notion of hyperbolic interval is defined. This allows us to define a general framework of the fractal geometry on the hyperbolic plane. Three types of the hyperbolic analogues of the real Cantor set are identified. The complementary nature of the real Cantor dust and the real Sierpinski carpet on the hyperbolic plane are outlined. The relevance of these findings in the context of modern physics are briefly discussed.

In this context, exact solvers for nonconvex 1D Riemann problems are developed. First a scalar conservation law for a nonconvex flux with two inflection points is studied. Then the P-system for an isothermal version of the van der Waals gas model is examined in a range of temperatures allowing for a nonconvex pressure function. Eventually the system of the Euler equations of gasdynamics is considered for the polytropic van der Waals gas. In this case, a suitably large specific heat is considered such that the isentropes display a local loss of convexity near the saturation curve and the critical point. Such a nonconvex physical model allows for nonclassical waves to appear as a result of the change of sign of the fundamental derivative of gasdynamics. The solution of the Riemann problem for the considered real gas model reduces to a system of two nonlinear ...

    Hyperbolic metamaterials can provide unprecedented properties in accommodation of high-k (high wave vector) waves and enhancement of the optical density of states. To reach such performance the metamaterials have to be fabricated with as small imperfections as possible. Here we report on our advances in two approaches in fabrication of optical metamaterials. We deposit ultrathin ultrasmooth gold layers with the assistance of organic material (APTMS) adhesion layer. The technology supports the stacking of such layers in a multiperiod construction with alumina spacers between gold films, which is expected to exhibit hyperbolic properties in the visible range. As the second approach we apply the atomic layer deposition technique to arrange vertical alignment of layers or pillars of heavily doped ZnO or TiN, which enables us to produce hyperbolic metamaterials for the near- and mid-infrared ranges.

  19. The spectrum of hyperbolic surfaces

    CERN Document Server

    Bergeron, Nicolas

    2016-01-01

    This text is an introduction to the spectral theory of the Laplacian on compact or finite area hyperbolic surfaces. For some of these surfaces, called “arithmetic hyperbolic surfaces”, the eigenfunctions are of arithmetic nature, and one may use analytic tools as well as powerful methods in number theory to study them. After an introduction to the hyperbolic geometry of surfaces, with a special emphasis on those of arithmetic type, and then an introduction to spectral analytic methods on the Laplace operator on these surfaces, the author develops the analogy between geometry (closed geodesics) and arithmetic (prime numbers) in proving the Selberg trace formula. Along with important number theoretic applications, the author exhibits applications of these tools to the spectral statistics of the Laplacian and the quantum unique ergodicity property. The latter refers to the arithmetic quantum unique ergodicity theorem, recently proved by Elon Lindenstrauss. The fruit of several graduate level courses at Orsay...

  20. Underlying conservation and stability laws in nonlinear propagation of axicon-generated Bessel beams

    Porras, Miguel A; Losada, Juan Carlos

    2015-01-01

    In light filamentation induced by axicon-generated, powerful Bessel beams, the spatial propagation dynamics in the nonlinear medium determines the geometry of the filament channel and hence its potential applications. We show that the observed steady and unsteady Bessel beam propagation regimes can be understood in a unified way from the existence of an attractor and its stability properties. The attractor is identified as the nonlinear unbalanced Bessel beam (NL-UBB) whose inward H\\"ankel beam amplitude equals the amplitude of the linear Bessel beam that the axicon would generate in linear propagation. A simple analytical formula that determines de NL-UBB attractor is given. Steady or unsteady propagation depends on whether the attracting NL-UBB has a small, exponentially growing, unstable mode. In case of unsteady propagation, periodic, quasi-periodic or chaotic dynamics after the axicon reproduces similar dynamics after the development of the small unstable mode into the large perturbation regime.

  1. An energy conserving finite-difference model of Maxwell's equations for soliton propagation

    Bachiri, H; Vázquez, L

    1997-01-01

    We present an energy conserving leap-frog finite-difference scheme for the nonlinear Maxwell's equations investigated by Hile and Kath [C.V.Hile and W.L.Kath, J.Opt.Soc.Am.B13, 1135 (96)]. The model describes one-dimensional scalar optical soliton propagation in polarization preserving nonlinear dispersive media. The existence of a discrete analog of the underlying continuous energy conservation law plays a central role in the global accuracy of the scheme and a proof of its generalized nonlinear stability using energy methods is given. Numerical simulations of initial fundamental, second and third-order hyperbolic secant soliton pulses of fixed spatial full width at half peak intensity containing as few as 4 and 8 optical carrier wavelengths, confirm the stability, accuracy and efficiency of the algorithm. The effect of a retarded nonlinear response time of the media modeling Raman scattering is under current investigation in this context.

    Mooring lines in the Ocean might be seen as a pretty simple seamanlike activity. Connecting valuable scientific instrumentation to it transforms this simple activity into a sophisticated engineering support which needs to be accurately designed, developed, deployed, monitored and hopefully recovered with its precious load of scientific data. This work is an historical travel along the efforts carried out by scientists all over the world to successfully predict mooring line behaviour through both mathematical simulation and experimental verifications. It is at first glance unexpected how many factors one must observe to get closer and closer to a real ocean situation. Most models have dual applications for mooring lines and towed bodies lines equations. Numerous references are provided starting from the oldest one due to Isaac Newton. In his "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Matematica" (1687) the English scientist, while discussing about the law of motion for bodies in resistant medium, is envisaging a hyperbolic fitting to the phenomenon including asymptotic behaviour in non-resistant media. A non-exhaustive set of mathematical simulations of the mooring lines trajectory prediction is listed hereunder to document how the subject has been under scientific focus over almost a century.

    2015-01-01

    Hyperbolic plasmonic metamaterials provide numerous opportunities for designing unusual linear and nonlinear optical properties. We show that the modal overlap of fundamental and second-harmonic light in an anisotropic plasmonic metamaterial slab results in the broadband enhancement of radiated second-harmonic intensity by up to 2 and 11 orders of magnitudes for TM- and TE-polarized fundamental light, respectively, compared to a smooth Au film under TM-polarised illumination. The results open up possibilities to design tuneable frequency-doubling metamaterial with the goal to overcome limitations associated with classical phase matching conditions in thick nonlinear crystals.

    Metamaterials are artificial optical media composed of sub-wavelength metallic and dielectric building blocks that feature optical phenomena not present in naturally occurring materials. Although they can serve as the basis for unique optical devices that mould the flow of light in unconventional ways, three-dimensional metamaterials suffer from extreme propagation losses. Two-dimensional metamaterials (metasurfaces) such as hyperbolic metasurfaces for propagating surface plasmon polaritons have the potential to alleviate this problem. Because the surface plasmon polaritons are guided at a metal-dielectric interface (rather than passing through metallic components), these hyperbolic metasurfaces have been predicted to suffer much lower propagation loss while still exhibiting optical phenomena akin to those in three-dimensional metamaterials. Moreover, because of their planar nature, these devices enable the construction of integrated metamaterial circuits as well as easy coupling with other optoelectronic elements. Here we report the experimental realization of a visible-frequency hyperbolic metasurface using single-crystal silver nanostructures defined by lithographic and etching techniques. The resulting devices display the characteristic properties of metamaterials, such as negative refraction and diffraction-free propagation, with device performance greatly exceeding those of previous demonstrations. Moreover, hyperbolic metasurfaces exhibit strong, dispersion-dependent spin-orbit coupling, enabling polarization- and wavelength-dependent routeing of surface plasmon polaritons and two-dimensional chiral optical components. These results open the door to realizing integrated optical meta-circuits, with wide-ranging applications in areas from imaging and sensing to quantum optics and quantum information science.

    Metamaterials are nano-engineered media with designed properties beyond those available in nature with applications in all aspects of materials science. In particular, metamaterials have shown promise for next generation optical materials with electromagnetic responses that cannot be obtained from conventional media. We review the fundamental properties of metamaterials with hyperbolic dispersion and present the various applications where such media offer potential for transformative impact. These artificial materials support unique bulk electromagnetic states which can tailor light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. We present a unified view of practical approaches to achieve hyperbolic dispersion using thin film and nanowire structures. We also review current research in the field of hyperbolic metamaterials such as sub-wavelength imaging and broadband photonic density of states engineering. The review introduces the concepts central to the theory of hyperbolic media as well as nanofabrication and characterization details essential to experimentalists. Finally, we outline the challenges in the area and offer a set of directions for future work.

    2015-11-16

    We analyze and model the nonlocal response of ultrathin hyperbolic metasurfaces (HMTSs) by applying an effective medium approach. We show that the intrinsic spatial dispersion in the materials employed to realize the metasurfaces imposes a wavenumber cutoff on the hyperbolic isofrequency contour, inversely proportional to the Fermi velocity, and we compare it with the cutoff arising from the structure granularity. In the particular case of HTMSs implemented by an array of graphene nanostrips, we find that graphene nonlocality can become the dominant mechanism that closes the hyperbolic contour - imposing a wavenumber cutoff at around 300k(0) - in realistic configurations with periodicity Lnonlocal response is mainly relevant in hyperbolic metasurfaces and metamaterials with periodicity below a few nm, being very weak in practical scenarios. In addition, we investigate how spatial dispersion affects the spontaneous emission rate of emitters located close to HMTSs. Our results establish an upper bound set by nonlocality to the maximum field confinement and light-matter interactions achievable in practical HMTSs, and may find application in the practical development of hyperlenses, sensors and on-chip networks.

  11. Beyond partial differential equations on linear and quasi-linear abstract hyperbolic evolution equations

    CERN Document Server

    Beyer, Horst Reinhard

    2007-01-01

    The present volume is self-contained and introduces to the treatment of linear and nonlinear (quasi-linear) abstract evolution equations by methods from the theory of strongly continuous semigroups. The theoretical part is accessible to graduate students with basic knowledge in functional analysis. Only some examples require more specialized knowledge from the spectral theory of linear, self-adjoint operators in Hilbert spaces. Particular stress is on equations of the hyperbolic type since considerably less often treated in the literature. Also, evolution equations from fundamental physics need to be compatible with the theory of special relativity and therefore are of hyperbolic type. Throughout, detailed applications are given to hyperbolic partial differential equations occurring in problems of current theoretical physics, in particular to Hermitian hyperbolic systems. This volume is thus also of interest to readers from theoretical physics.

    2005-01-01

    In this paper we study a free boundary problem modelling tumor growth, proposed by A. Friedman in 2004. This free boundary problem involves a nonlinear second-order parabolic equation describing the diffusion of nutrient in the tumor, and three nonlinear first-order hyperbolic equations describing the evolution of proliferative cells, quiescent cells and dead cells, respectively. By applying Lp theory of parabolic equations, the characteristic theory of hyperbolic equations, and the Banach fixed point theorem, we prove that this problem has a unique global classical solution.

  14. Conserved charges for black holes in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity coupled to nonlinear electrodynamics in AdS space

    Mišković, Olivera; Olea, Rodrigo

    2011-01-01

    Motivated by possible applications within the framework of anti-de Sitter gravity/conformal field theory correspondence, charged black holes with AdS asymptotics, which are solutions to Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity in D dimensions, and whose electric field is described by nonlinear electrodynamics are studied. For a topological static black hole ansatz, the field equations are exactly solved in terms of the electromagnetic stress tensor for an arbitrary nonlinear electrodynamic Lagrangian in any dimension D and for arbitrary positive values of Gauss-Bonnet coupling. In particular, this procedure reproduces the black hole metric in Born-Infeld and conformally invariant electrodynamics previously found in the literature. Altogether, it extends to D>4 the four-dimensional solution obtained by Soleng in logarithmic electrodynamics, which comes from vacuum polarization effects. Falloff conditions for the electromagnetic field that ensure the finiteness of the electric charge are also discussed. The black hole mass and vacuum energy as conserved quantities associated to an asymptotic timelike Killing vector are computed using a background-independent regularization of the gravitational action based on the addition of counterterms which are a given polynomial in the intrinsic and extrinsic curvatures.

    The nonlinear Euler equations are used to model two-dimensional atmosphere dynamics in a thin rotating spherical shell. The energy balance is deduced on the basis of two classes of functorially independent invariant solutions associated with the model. It it shown that the energy balance is exactly the conservation law for one class of the solutions whereas the second class of invariant solutions provides and asymptotic convergence of the energy balance to the conservation law.

Each network is able to generate the conservative chaotic attractors with the certain degree of the structural stability.

    Deformations of the focusing non-linear Schr\\"odinger model (NLS) are considered in the context of the quasi-integrability concept. We strengthen the results of JHEP09(2012)103 for bright soliton collisions. We addressed the focusing NLS as a complement to the one in JHEP03(2016)005, in which the modified defocusing NLS models with dark solitons were shown to exhibit an infinite tower of exactly conserved charges. We show, by means of analytical and numerical methods, that for certain two-bright-soliton solutions, in which the modulus and phase of the complex modified NLS field exhibit even parities under a space-reflection symmetry, the first four and the sequence of even order charges are exactly conserved during the scattering process of the solitons. We perform extensive numerical simulations and consider the bright solitons with deformed potential $ V = \\frac{ 2\\eta}{2+ \\epsilon} \\( |\\psi|^2\\)^{2 + \\epsilon}, \\epsilon \\in \\IR, \\eta<0$. However, for two-soliton field components without definite parity ...

    Küchler, Sebastian; Meurer, Thomas; Jacobs, Laurence J; Qu, Jianmin

    2009-03-01

    This study investigates two-dimensional wave propagation in an elastic half-space with quadratic nonlinearity. The problem is formulated as a hyperbolic system of conservation laws, which is solved numerically using a semi-discrete central scheme. These numerical results are then analyzed in the frequency domain to interpret the nonlinear effects, specifically the excitation of higher-order harmonics. To quantify and compare the nonlinearity of different materials, a new parameter is introduced, which is similar to the acoustic nonlinearity parameter beta for one-dimensional longitudinal waves. By using this new parameter, it is found that the nonlinear effects of a material depend on the point of observation in the half-space, both the angle and the distance to the excitation source. Furthermore it is illustrated that the third-order elastic constants have a linear effect on the acoustic nonlinearity of a material.

    Inc, Mustafa; Aliyu, Aliyu Isa; Yusuf, Abdullahi

    2017-05-01

    This paper studies the dynamics of solitons to the nonlinear Schrödinger’s equation (NLSE) with spatio-temporal dispersion (STD). The integration algorithm that is employed in this paper is the Riccati-Bernoulli sub-ODE method. This leads to dark and singular soliton solutions that are important in the field of optoelectronics and fiber optics. The soliton solutions appear with all necessary constraint conditions that are necessary for them to exist. There are four types of nonlinear media studied in this paper. They are Kerr law, power law, parabolic law and dual law. The conservation laws (Cls) for the Kerr law and parabolic law nonlinear media are constructed using the conservation theorem presented by Ibragimov.

In this paper we characterize the product graphs 1 × 2 which are hyperbolic, in terms of 1 and 2: the product graph 1 × 2 is hyperbolic if and only if 1 is hyperbolic and 2 is bounded or 2 is hyperbolic and 1 is bounded. We also prove some sharp relations between the hyperbolicity constant of $1 × 2,(1),(2) and the diameters of 1 and 2 (and we find families of graphs for which the inequalities are attained). Furthermore, we obtain the precise value of the hyperbolicity constant for many product graphs.

    2012-01-01

    We revisit the problem of the electromagnetic Green function for homogeneous hyperbolic media, where longitudinal and transverse components of the dielectric permittivity tensor have different signs. We analyze the dipole emission patterns for both dipole orientations with respect to the symmetry axis and for different signs of dielectric constants, and show that the emission pattern is highly anisotropic and has a characteristic cross-like shape: the waves are propagating within a certain cone and are evanescent outside this cone. We demonstrate the coexistence of the cone-like pattern due to emission of the extraordinary TM-polarized waves and elliptical pattern due to emission of ordinary TE-polarized waves. We find a singular complex term in the Green function, proportional to the $\\delta-$function and governing the photonic density of states and Purcell effect in hyperbolic media.

    Blachère, F.; Turpault, R.

    2016-06-01

    The objective of this work is to design explicit finite volumes schemes for specific systems of conservations laws with stiff source terms, which degenerate into diffusion equations. We propose a general framework to design an asymptotic preserving scheme, that is stable and consistent under a classical hyperbolic CFL condition in both hyperbolic and diffusive regime, for any two-dimensional unstructured mesh. Moreover, the scheme developed also preserves the set of admissible states, which is mandatory to keep physical solutions in stiff configurations. This construction is achieved by using a non-linear scheme as a target scheme for the diffusive equation, which gives the form of the global scheme for the complete system of conservation laws. Numerical results are provided to validate the scheme in both regimes.

    A flux difference splitting numerical scheme based on the finite volume method is applied to study ideal/resistive magnetohydrodynamics. The ideal/resistive MHD equations are cast as a set of hyperbolic conservation laws, and we develop a numerical capability to solve the weak solutions of these hyperbolic conservation laws by combining a multi-state Harten-Lax-Van Leer approximate Riemann solver with the hyperbolic divergence cleaning technique, high order shock-capturing reconstruction schemes, and a third order total variance diminishing Runge-Kutta time evolving scheme. The developed simulation code is applied to study the long time nonlinear evolution of the coalescence instability. It is verified that small structures in the instability oscillate with time and then merge into medium structures in a coherent manner. The medium structures then evolve and merge into large structures, and this trend continues through all scale-lengths. The physics of this interesting nonlinear dynamics is numerically analyzed. supported by the National Magnetic Confinement Fusion Science Program of China (Nos. 2013GB111002, 2013GB105003, 2013GB111000, 2014GB124005, 2015GB111003), National Natural Science Foundation of China (Nos. 11305171, 11405208), JSPS-NRF-NSFC A3 Foresight Program in the field of Plasma Physics (NSFC-11261140328), the Science Foundation of the Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (DSJJ-15-JC02) and the CAS Program for the Interdisciplinary Collaboration Team

  5. Closure constraints for hyperbolic tetrahedra

    CERN Document Server

    Charles, Christoph

    2015-01-01

    We investigate the generalization of loop gravity's twisted geometries to a q-deformed gauge group. In the standard undeformed case, loop gravity is a formulation of general relativity as a diffeomorphism-invariant SU(2) gauge theory. Its classical states are graphs provided with algebraic data. In particular closure constraints at every node of the graph ensure their interpretation as twisted geometries. Dual to each node, one has a polyhedron embedded in flat space R^3. One then glues them allowing for both curvature and torsion. It was recently conjectured that q-deforming the gauge group SU(2) would allow to account for a non-vanishing cosmological constant Lambda, and in particular that deforming the loop gravity phase space with real parameter q>0 would lead to a generalization of twisted geometries to a hyperbolic curvature. Following this insight, we look for generalization of the closure constraints to the hyperbolic case. In particular, we introduce two new closure constraints for hyperbolic tetrahe...

    In this paper we consider the Cauchy problem for quasilinear hyperbolic systems with characteristics with constant multiplicity. Without restriction on characteristics with constant multiplicity(> 1), under the assumptions that there is a genuinely nonlinear simple characteristic and the initial data possess certain decaying properties, the blow-up result is obtained for the C,1 solution to the Cauchy problem.

    Full Text Available We study the Cauchy problem for the cubic hyperbolic Schrodinger equation in two space dimensions. We prove existence of analytic global solutions for sufficiently small and exponential decaying data. The method of proof depends on the generalized Leibniz rule for the generator of pseudo-conformal transform acting on pseudo-conformally invariant nonlinearity.

  15. On hyperbolicity violations in cosmological models with vector fields

    CERN Document Server

    Golovnev, Alexey

    2014-01-01

    Cosmological models with vector fields received much attention in recent years. Unfortunately, most of them are plagued with severe instabilities or other problems. In particular, it was noted by G. Esposito-Farese, C. Pitrou and J.-Ph. Uzan in arXiv:0912.0481 that the models with a non-linear function of the Maxwellian kinetic term do always imply violations of hyperbolicity somewhere in the phase space. In this work we make this statement more precise in several respects and show that those violations may not be present around spatially homogeneous configurations of the vector field.

    2016-08-09

    In this paper, the problem of estimating the distributed profile of the temperature along the tube of a concentrated distributed solar collector from boundary measurements is addressed. A nonlinear observer is proposed based on a nonlinear integral transformation. The objective is to force the estimation error to follow some stable transport dynamics. Convergence conditions are derived in order to determine the observer gain ensuring the stabilization of the estimation error in a finite time. Numerical simulations are given to show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm under different working conditions.

    2015-01-01

    The dimensionally split reconstruction method as described by Kurganov et al.\\cite{kurganov-2000} is revisited for better understanding and a simple fourth order scheme is introduced to solve 3D hyperbolic conservation laws following dimension by dimension approach. Fourth order central weighted essentially non-oscillatory (CWENO) reconstruction methods have already been proposed to study multidimensional problems \\cite{lpr4,cs12}. In this paper, it is demonstrated that a simple 1D fourth order CWENO reconstruction method by Levy et al.\\cite{lpr7} provides fourth order accuracy for 3D hyperbolic nonlinear problems when combined with the semi-discrete scheme by Kurganov et al.\\cite{kurganov-2000} and fourth order Runge-Kutta method for time integration.

    2008-01-01

    Cubic algebraic hyperbolic (AH) Bezier curves and AH spline curves are defined with a positive parameter α in the space spanned by {1, t, sinht, cosht}. Modifying the value of α yields a family of AH Bezier or spline curves with the family parameter α. For a fixed point on the original curve, it will move on a defined curve called "path of AH curve" (AH Bezier and AH spline curves) when α changes. We describe the geometric effects of the paths and give a method to specify a curve passing through a given point.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available The paper presents a review on hyperbolic metamaterials which are normally described by the permittivity and permeability tensors with the components of the opposite sign. Therefore, the hyperbolic metamaterials have the hyperbolic isofrequency surfaces in the wave vector space. It leads to a number of unusual properties, such as the negative refraction, the diverging density of photonic states, ultra-high rate of spontaneous emission and increasing of subwavelength fields. The presence of the unique properties mentioned above makes the concept of hyperbolic metamaterials promising for research in modern science and explains the attempts of research groups around the world to realize structures with hyperbolic isofrequency curve suitable for applications in different frequency ranges. Hyperbolic metamaterials realized as layered metal-dielectric structures, arrays of nanowires, graphene layers, as well as artificial transmission lines are considered in the paper. Possible practical applications of hyperbolic metamaterials are described including hyperlens able to increase the nanoscale objects; wire mediums applied for spectroscopy to improve the resolution and increasing the distance to the object being scanned. Hyperbolic metamaterials are noted to be extremely promising for applications in nanophotonics, including single-photon generation, sensing and photovoltaics.

  5. A high-order accurate embedded boundary method for first order hyperbolic equations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mattsson, Ken; Almquist, Martin

    2017-04-01

    A stable and high-order accurate embedded boundary method for first order hyperbolic equations is derived. Where the grid-boundaries and the physical boundaries do not coincide, high order interpolation is used. The boundary stencils are based on a summation-by-parts framework, and the boundary conditions are imposed by the SAT penalty method, which guarantees linear stability for one-dimensional problems. Second-, fourth-, and sixth-order finite difference schemes are considered. The resulting schemes are fully explicit. Accuracy and numerical stability of the proposed schemes are demonstrated for both linear and nonlinear hyperbolic systems in one and two spatial dimensions.

The Lie group analysis as well as the simplest equation method are used to carry out the integration of these equations. The solutions obtained are cnoidal waves, periodic solutions and soliton solutions. Subsequently, the conservation laws are derived for the underlying equations.

  7. The art and science of hyperbolic tessellations.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Van Dusen, B; Taylor, R P

    2013-04-01

    The visual impact of hyperbolic tessellations has captured artists' imaginations ever since M.C. Escher generated his Circle Limit series in the 1950s. The scaling properties generated by hyperbolic geometry are different to the fractal scaling properties found in nature's scenery. Consequently, prevalent interpretations of Escher's art emphasize the lack of connection with nature's patterns. However, a recent collaboration between the two authors proposed that Escher's motivation for using hyperbolic geometry was as a method to deliberately distort nature's rules. Inspired by this hypothesis, this year's cover artist, Ben Van Dusen, embeds natural fractals such as trees, clouds and lightning into a hyperbolic scaling grid. The resulting interplay of visual structure at multiple size scales suggests that hybridizations of fractal and hyperbolic geometries provide a rich compositional tool for artists.

  8. Hyperbolic monopoles, JNR data and spectral curves

    CERN Document Server

    Bolognesi, Stefano; Sutcliffe, Paul

    2014-01-01

    A large class of explicit hyperbolic monopole solutions can be obtained from JNR instanton data, if the curvature of hyperbolic space is suitably tuned. Here we provide explicit formulae for both the monopole spectral curve and its rational map in terms of JNR data. Examples with platonic symmetry are presented, together with some one-parameter families with cyclic and dihedral symmetries. These families include hyperbolic analogues of geodesics that describe symmetric monopole scatterings in Euclidean space and we illustrate the results with energy density isosurfaces. There is a metric on the moduli space of hyperbolic monopoles, defined using the abelian connection on the boundary of hyperbolic space, and we provide a simple integral formula for this metric on the space of JNR data.

  9. High order ADER schemes for a unified first order hyperbolic formulation of continuum mechanics: Viscous heat-conducting fluids and elastic solids

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dumbser, Michael; Peshkov, Ilya; Romenski, Evgeniy; Zanotti, Olindo

    2016-06-01

    This paper is concerned with the numerical solution of the unified first order hyperbolic formulation of continuum mechanics recently proposed by Peshkov and Romenski [110], further denoted as HPR model. In that framework, the viscous stresses are computed from the so-called distortion tensor A, which is one of the primary state variables in the proposed first order system. A very important key feature of the HPR model is its ability to describe at the same time the behavior of inviscid and viscous compressible Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids with heat conduction, as well as the behavior of elastic and visco-plastic solids. Actually, the model treats viscous and inviscid fluids as generalized visco-plastic solids. This is achieved via a stiff source term that accounts for strain relaxation in the evolution equations of A. Also heat conduction is included via a first order hyperbolic system for the thermal impulse, from which the heat flux is computed. The governing PDE system is hyperbolic and fully consistent with the first and the second principle of thermodynamics. It is also fundamentally different from first order Maxwell-Cattaneo-type relaxation models based on extended irreversible thermodynamics. The HPR model represents therefore a novel and unified description of continuum mechanics, which applies at the same time to fluid mechanics and solid mechanics. In this paper, the direct connection between the HPR model and the classical hyperbolic-parabolic Navier-Stokes-Fourier theory is established for the first time via a formal asymptotic analysis in the stiff relaxation limit. From a numerical point of view, the governing partial differential equations are very challenging, since they form a large nonlinear hyperbolic PDE system that includes stiff source terms and non-conservative products. We apply the successful family of one-step ADER-WENO finite volume (FV) and ADER discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite element schemes to the HPR model in the stiff

    Under investigation in this article is a generalised nonlinear Schroedinger-Maxwell-Bloch system for the picosecond optical pulse propagation in an inhomogeneous erbium-doped silica optical fibre. Lax pair, conservation laws, Darboux transformation, and generalised Darboux transformation for the system are constructed; with the one- and two-soliton solutions, the first- and second-order rogue waves given. Soliton propagation is discussed. Nonlinear tunneling effect on the solitons and rogue waves are investigated. We find that (i) the detuning of the atomic transition frequency from the optical pulse frequency affects the velocity of the pulse when the detuning is small, (ii) nonlinear tunneling effect does not affect the energy redistribution of the soliton interaction, (iii) dispersion barrier/well has an effect on the soliton velocity, whereas nonlinear well/barrier does not, (iv) nonlinear well/barrier could amplify/compress the solitons or rogue waves in a smoother manner than the dispersion barrier/well, and (v) dispersion barrier could ''attract'' the nearby rogue waves, whereas the dispersion well has a repulsive effect on them.

  11. L^1 stability of conservation laws for a traffic flow model

    2001-02-01

    Full Text Available We establish the $L^1$ well-posedness theory for a system of nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws with relaxation arising in traffic flows. In particular, we obtain the continuous dependence of the solution on its initial data in $L^1$ topology. We construct a functional for two solutions which is equivalent to the $L^1$ distance between the solutions. We prove that the functional decreases in time which yields the $L^1$ well-posedness of the Cauchy problem. We thus obtain the $L^1$-convergence to and the uniqueness of the zero relaxation limit.

    In this paper, we derive a boundary and an internal observability inequality for stochastic hyperbolic equations with nonsmooth lower order terms. The required inequalities are obtained by global Carleman estimate for stochastic hyperbolic equations. By these inequalities, we study a state observation problem for stochastic hyperbolic equations. As a consequence, we also establish a unique continuation property for stochastic hyperbolic equations.

We give the counterexamples showing nonexistence of such trajectories for nonhyperbolic stationary points.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available A system arising in the modeling of oil-recovery processes is analyzed. It consists of a hyperbolic conservation law governing the saturation and an elliptic equation for the pressure. By an operator splitting approach, an approximate solution is constructed. For this approximation appropriate a-priori bounds are derived. Applying the Arzela-Ascoli theorem, local existence and uniqueness of a classical solution for the original hyperbolic-elliptic system is proved. Furthermore, convergence of the approximation generated by operator splitting towards the unique solution follows. It is also proved that the unique solution is stable with respect to perturbations of the initial data.

    The mere mention of hyperbolic geometry is enough to strike fear in the heart of the undergraduate mathematics and physics student. Some regard themselves as excluded from the profound insights of hyperbolic geometry so that this enormous portion of human achievement is a closed door to them. The mission of this book is to open that door by making the hyperbolic geometry of Bolyai and Lobachevsky, as well as the special relativity theory of Einstein that it regulates, accessible to a wider audience in terms of novel analogies that the modern and unknown share with the classical and familiar.

    The stickiness effect of invariant tori in the phase space is widely studied, and extended to the slow-down of orbital diffusion due to some other invariant sets, such as Cantori, island-chains and hyperbolic periodic orbits.We report on two models in which hyperbolic periodic orbits show the stickiness effect. We discuss the generalized stickiness effects caused by different invariant sets. We believe that the main cause of the generalized stickiness effects is the hyperbolic structures in the phase space of the dynamical systems.

  17. Hyperbolically embedded subgroups and rotating families in groups acting on hyperbolic spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Dahmani, F; Osin, D

    2017-01-01

    The authors introduce and study the notions of hyperbolically embedded and very rotating families of subgroups. The former notion can be thought of as a generalization of the peripheral structure of a relatively hyperbolic group, while the latter one provides a natural framework for developing a geometric version of small cancellation theory. Examples of such families naturally occur in groups acting on hyperbolic spaces including hyperbolic and relatively hyperbolic groups, mapping class groups, Out(F_n), and the Cremona group. Other examples can be found among groups acting geometrically on CAT(0) spaces, fundamental groups of graphs of groups, etc. The authors obtain a number of general results about rotating families and hyperbolically embedded subgroups; although their technique applies to a wide class of groups, it is capable of producing new results even for well-studied particular classes. For instance, the authors solve two open problems about mapping class groups, and obtain some results which are n...

  20. Hodograph Method and Numerical Integration of Two Hyperbolic Quasilinear Equations. Part I. The Shallow Water Equations

    CERN Document Server

    Shiryaeva, E V

    2014-01-01

    In paper [S.I. Senashov, A. Yakhno. 2012. SIGMA. Vol.8. 071] the variant of the hodograph method based on the conservation laws for two hyperbolic quasilinear equations of the first order is described. Using these results we propose a method which allows to reduce the Cauchy problem for the two quasilinear PDE's to the Cauchy problem for ODE's. The proposed method is actually some similar method of characteristics for a system of two hyperbolic quasilinear equations. The method can be used effectively in all cases, when the linear hyperbolic equation in partial derivatives of the second order with variable coefficients, resulting from the application of the hodograph method, has an explicit expression for the Riemann-Green function. One of the method's features is the possibility to construct a multi-valued solutions. In this paper we present examples of method application for solving the classical shallow water equations.

  1. Hyperbolic character of the angular moment equations of radiative transfer and numerical methods

    CERN Document Server

    Pons, J A; Miralles, J A; Pons, Jose A.; Miralles, Juan A.

    2000-01-01

    We study the mathematical character of the angular moment equations of radiative transfer in spherical symmetry and conclude that the system is hyperbolic for general forms of the closure relation found in the literature. Hyperbolicity and causality preservation lead to mathematical conditions allowing to establish a useful characterization of the closure relations. We apply numerical methods specifically designed to solve hyperbolic systems of conservation laws (the so-called Godunov-type methods), to calculate numerical solutions of the radiation transport equations in a static background. The feasibility of the method in any kind of regime, from diffusion to free-streaming, is demonstrated by a number of numerical tests and the effect of the choice of the closure relation on the results is discussed.

  2. Penrose type inequalities for asymptotically hyperbolic graphs

    CERN Document Server

    Dahl, Mattias; Sakovich, Anna

    2013-01-01

    In this paper we study asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds given as graphs of asymptotically constant functions over hyperbolic space $\\bH^n$. The graphs are considered as subsets of $\\bH^{n+1}$ and carry the induced metric. For such manifolds the scalar curvature appears in the divergence of a 1-form involving the integrand for the asymptotically hyperbolic mass. Integrating this divergence we estimate the mass by an integral over an inner boundary. In case the inner boundary satisfies a convexity condition this can in turn be estimated in terms of the area of the inner boundary. The resulting estimates are similar to the conjectured Penrose inequality for asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. The work presented here is inspired by Lam's article concerning the asymptotically Euclidean case.

  5. Infinitesimal Lyapunov functions and singular-hyperbolicity

    CERN Document Server

    Araujo, Vitor

    2012-01-01

    We present an extension of the notion of infinitesimal Lyapunov function to singular flows on three-dimensional manifolds, and show how this technique provides a characterization of partially hyperbolic structures for invariant sets for such flows, and also of singular-hyperbolicity. In the absence of singularities, we can also rephrase uniform hyperbolicity with the language of infinitesimal Lyapunov functions. These conditions are expressed using the vector field X and its space derivative DX together with an infinitesimal Lyapunov function only and are reduced to checking that a certain symmetric operator is positive definite on the trapping region: we show how to express partial hyperbolicity using only the interplay between the infinitesimal generator X of the flow X_t, its derivative DX and the infinitesimal Lyapunov function.

    2011-01-01

    A large class of partial differential equations in the modelling of ocean waves are due to Ostrovsky. We determine the invariance properties (through the Lie point symmetry generators) and construct classes of conservation laws for some of the models. In the latter case, the method involves finding the 'multipliers' associated with the conservation laws with a stronger emphasis on the 'higher-order' ones. The relationship between the symmetries and conservation laws is investigated by considering the invariance properties of the multipliers.

    This paper deals with absorbing boundary conditions for hyperbolic systems in one and two space dimensions. We prove the strict well-posedness of the resulting initial boundary value problem in 1D. Afterwards we establish the GKS-stability of the corresponding Lax-Wendroff-type finite difference scheme. Hereby, we have to extend the classical proofs, since the (discretized) absorbing boundary conditions do not fit the standard form of boundary conditions for hyperbolic systems.

  13. Toward optical sensing with hyperbolic metamaterials

    Mackay, Tom G.

    2015-06-01

    A possible means of optical sensing, based on a porous hyperbolic material that is infiltrated by a fluid containing an analyte to be sensed, was theoretically investigated. The sensing mechanism relies on the observation that extraordinary plane waves propagate in the infiltrated hyperbolic material only in directions enclosed by a cone aligned with the optic axis of the infiltrated hyperbolic material. The angle this cone subtends to the plane perpendicular to the optic axis is θc. The sensitivity of θc to changes in the refractive index of the infiltrating fluid, namely nb, was explored; also considered were the permittivity parameters and porosity of the hyperbolic material, as well as the shape and size of its pores. Sensitivity was gauged by the derivative dθc/dnb. In parametric numerical studies, values of dθc/dnb in excess of 500 deg per refractive index unit were computed, depending upon the constitutive parameters of the porous hyperbolic material and infiltrating fluid and the nature of the porosity. In particular, it was observed that exceeding large values of dθc/dnb could be attained as the negative-valued eigenvalue of the infiltrated hyperbolic material approached zero.

    Hyperbolic metamaterials were originally introduced to overcome the diffraction limit of optical imaging. Soon thereafter it was realized that hyperbolic metamaterials demonstrate a number of novel phenomena resulting from the broadband singular behavior of their density of photonic states. These novel phenomena and applications include super resolution imaging, new stealth technologies, enhanced quantum-electrodynamic effects, thermal hyperconductivity, superconductivity, and interesting gravitation theory analogues. Here we briefly review typical material systems, which exhibit hyperbolic behavior and outline important novel applications of hyperbolic metamaterials. In particular, we will describe recent imaging experiments with plasmonic metamaterials and novel VCSEL geometries, in which the Bragg mirrors may be engineered in such a way that they exhibit hyperbolic metamaterial properties in the long wavelength infrared range, so that they may be used to efficiently remove excess heat from the laser cavity. We will also discuss potential applications of three-dimensional self-assembled photonic hypercrystals, which are based on cobalt ferrofluids in external magnetic field. This system bypasses 3D nanofabrication issues, which typically limit metamaterial applications. Photonic hypercrystals combine the most interesting features of hyperbolic metamaterials and photonic crystals.

    Uniaxial materials whose axial and tangential permittivities have opposite signs are referred to as indefinite or hyperbolic media. While hyperbolic responses are normally achieved with metamaterials, hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) naturally possesses this property due to the anisotropic phonons in the mid-infrared. Using scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy, we studied polaritonic phenomena in hBN. We performed infrared nano-imaging of highly confined and low-loss hyperbolic phonon polaritons in hBN. The polariton wavelength was shown to be governed by the hBN thickness according to a linear law persisting down to few atomic layers [Science, 343, 1125-1129 (2014)]. Additionally, we carried out the modification of hyperbolic response in heterostructures comprised of a mononlayer graphene deposited on hBN. Electrostatic gating of the top graphene layer allows for the modification of wavelength and intensity of hyperbolic phonon polaritons in bulk hBN. The physics of the modification originates from the plasmon-phonon coupling in the hyperbolic medium. Furthermore, we demonstrated the ``hyperlens'' for subdiffractional imaging and focusing using a slab of hBN.

    Stratified hydrostatic fluids have linear internal gravity waves with different phase speeds and vertical profiles. Here a simplified set of partial differential equations (PDE) is derived to represent the nonlinear dynamics of waves with different vertical profiles. The equations are derived by projecting the full nonlinear equations onto the vertical modes of two gravity waves, and the resulting equations are thus referred to here as the two-mode shallow water equations (2MSWE). A key aspect of the nonlinearities of the 2MSWE is that they allow for interactions between a background wind shear and propagating waves. This is important in the tropical atmosphere where horizontally propagating gravity waves interact together with wind shear and have source terms due to convection. It is shown here that the 2MSWE have nonlinear internal bore solutions, and the behavior of the nonlinear waves is investigated for different background wind shears. When a background shear is included, there is an asymmetry between the east- and westward propagating waves. This could be an important effect for the large-scale organization of tropical convection, since the convection is often not isotropic but organized on large scales by waves. An idealized illustration of this asymmetry is given for a background shear from the westerly wind burst phase of the Madden-Julian oscillation; the potential for organized convection is increased to the west of the existing convection by the propagating nonlinear gravity waves, which agrees qualitatively with actual observations. The ideas here should be useful for other physical applications as well. Moreover, the 2MSWE have several interesting mathematical properties: they are a system of nonconservative PDE with a conserved energy, they are conditionally hyperbolic, and they are neither genuinely nonlinear nor linearly degenerate over all of state space. Theory and numerics are developed to illustrate these features, and these features are

    In a recent paper (R Narain and A H Kara 2010 J. Phys. A: Math. Theor. 43 085205), the authors claim to be applying Noether's theorem to higher-order partial differential equations and state that in a large class of examples 'the resultant conserved flows display some previously unknown interesting 'divergence properties' owing to the presence of the mixed derivatives' (citation from their abstract). It turns out that what this obscure sentence is meant to say is that the vector whose divergence must be zero (according to Noether's theorem), turns out to have non-zero divergence and subsequently must be modified to obtain a true conservation law. Clearly this cannot be right: we explain in detail the main source of the error. (comment)

    Highlights: • A kind of jerk equations are proposed. • Chaos can occur with all types of a non-hyperbolic equilibrium. • The mechanism of generating chaos is discussed. • Feigenbaum's constant explains the identified chaotic flows. - Abstract: This paper describes a class of third-order explicit autonomous differential equations, called jerk equations, with quadratic nonlinearities that can generate a catalog of nine elementary dissipative chaotic flows with the unusual feature of having a single non-hyperbolic equilibrium. They represent an interesting sub-class of dynamical systems that can exhibit many major features of regular and chaotic motion. The proposed systems are investigated through numerical simulations and theoretical analysis. For these jerk dynamical systems, a certain amount of nonlinearity is sufficient to produce chaos through a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations.

    In this paper, we consider the Riemann problem for a five-equation, two-pressure (5E2P) model proposed by Ransom and Hicks for an isentropic compressible gas–liquid two-phase flows. The model is given by a strictly hyperbolic, non-conservative system of five partial differential equations (PDEs). We investigate the structure of the Riemann problem and construct an approximate solution for it. We solve the Riemann problemfor this model approximately assuming that all waves corresponding to the genuinely nonlinear characteristic fields are rarefaction and discuss their properties. To verify the solver, a series of test problems selected from the literature are presented.

    2015-08-01

    In a numerical solution of the Maxwell-Vlasov system, the consistency with the charge conservation and divergence conditions has to be kept solving the hyperbolic evolution equations of the Maxwell system, since the vector identity ∇ ṡ (∇ × u →) = 0 and/or the charge conservation of moving particles may be not satisfied completely due to discretization errors. One possible method to force the consistency is the hyperbolic divergence cleaning. This hyperbolic constraint formulation of Maxwell's equations has been proposed previously, coupling the divergence conditions to the hyperbolic evolution equations, which can then be treated with the same numerical method. We pick up this method again and show that electrostatic limit may be obtained by accentuating the divergence cleaning sub-system and converging to steady state. Hence, the electrostatic case can be treated by the electrodynamic code with reduced computational effort. In addition, potential boundary conditions as often given in practical applications can be coupled in a similar way to get appropriate boundary conditions for the field equations. Numerical results are shown for an electric dipole, a parallel-plate capacitor, and a Langmuir wave. The use of potential boundary conditions is demonstrated in an Einzel lens simulation.

  7. IDENTIFICATION PECULIARITIES OF HYPERBOLE AND EUPHEMISMS

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The article represents a research carried out within a cognitive-discursive paradigm of modern linguistics. The study represents an attempt to develop a method for hyperbole and euphemism identification as special cases of a metaphor. The Authors of article use the following determinations of tropes. Hyperbole is an expression that is more extreme than justified given its ontological referent [1, p. 163]. Euphemiya (greek eu – "good", phemi – "say" are the mitigations promoting effect indirect names substitutes of terrible, shameful or odious which brought to life by moral or religious motives [2]. As a basis for new method we use the Hyperbole Identification Procedure developed by research group from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam under the leadership of G. Steen. The detailed analysis of hyperbolization and euphemization allows revealing and describing specifics of processes. The amplification of the existing sign is characteristic of the hyperbolization. The lexical unit with negative meaning becomes more expressional with additional negative connotations. The positive sign amplifies with addition of new positive meanings. In the euphemiya the positive connotations mitigate the negative meaning of lexical unit; sometimes it is possible full replacement negative on positive.

    This brief considers recent results on optimal control and stabilization of systems governed by hyperbolic partial differential equations, specifically those in which the control action takes place at the boundary.  The wave equation is used as a typical example of a linear system, through which the author explores initial boundary value problems, concepts of exact controllability, optimal exact control, and boundary stabilization.  Nonlinear systems are also covered, with the Korteweg-de Vries and Burgers Equations serving as standard examples.  To keep the presentation as accessible as possible, the author uses the case of a system with a state that is defined on a finite space interval, so that there are only two boundary points where the system can be controlled.  Graduate and post-graduate students as well as researchers in the field will find this to be an accessible introduction to problems of optimal control and stabilization.

    The radiation dynamics of optical emitters can be manipulated by properly designed material structures providing high local density of photonic states, a phenomenon often referred to as the Purcell effect. Plasmonic nanorod metamaterials with hyperbolic dispersion of electromagnetic modes are believed to deliver a significant Purcell enhancement with both broadband and non-resonant nature. Here, we have investigated finite-size cavities formed by nanorod metamaterials and shown that the main mechanism of the Purcell effect in these hyperbolic resonators originates from the cavity hyperbolic modes, which in a microscopic description stem from the interacting cylindrical surface plasmon modes of the finite number of nanorods forming the cavity. It is found that emitters polarized perpendicular to the nanorods exhibit strong decay rate enhancement, which is predominantly influenced by the rod length. We demonstrate that this enhancement originates from Fabry-Perot modes of the metamaterial cavity. The Purcell fa...

    Coherent nanoscale photon sources are of paramount importance to achieving all-optical communication. Several nanolasers smaller than the diffraction limit have been theoretically proposed and experimentally demonstrated using plasmonic cavities to confine optical fields. Such compact cavities exhibit large Purcell factors, thereby enhancing spontaneous emission, which feeds into the lasing mode. However, most plasmonic nanolasers reported so far have employed resonant nanostructures and therefore had the lasing restricted to the proximity of the resonance wavelength. Here, we report on an approach based on gold nanorod hyperbolic metamaterials for lasing. Hyperbolic metamaterials provide broadband Purcell enhancement due to large photonic density of optical states, while also supporting surface plasmon modes to deliver optical feedback for lasing due to nonlocal effects in nanorod media. We experimentally demonstrate the advantage of hyperbolic metamaterials in achieving lasing action by its comparison with ...

    We investigate the effects of hydrodynamic nonlocal response in hyperbolic metamaterials (HMMs), focusing on the experimentally realizable parameter regime where unit cells are much smaller than an optical wavelength but much larger than the wavelengths of the longitudinal pressure waves of the free-electron plasma in the metal constituents. We derive the nonlocal corrections to the effective material parameters analytically, and illustrate the noticeable nonlocal effects on the dispersion curves numerically. As an application, we find that the focusing characteristics of a HMM lens in the local-response approximation and in the hydrodynamic Drude model can differ considerably. In particular, the optimal frequency for imaging in the nonlocal theory is blueshifted with respect to that in the local theory. Thus, to detect whether nonlocal response is at work in a hyperbolic metamaterial, we propose to measure the near-field distribution of a hyperbolic metamaterial lens.

  14. Domain Decomposition Methods for Hyperbolic Problems

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Pravir Dutt; Subir Singh Lamba

    2009-04-01

    In this paper a method is developed for solving hyperbolic initial boundary value problems in one space dimension using domain decomposition, which can be extended to problems in several space dimensions. We minimize a functional which is the sum of squares of the 2 norms of the residuals and a term which is the sum of the squares of the 2 norms of the jumps in the function across interdomain boundaries. To make the problem well posed the interdomain boundaries are made to move back and forth at alternate time steps with sufficiently high speed. We construct parallel preconditioners and obtain error estimates for the method. The Schwarz waveform relaxation method is often employed to solve hyperbolic problems using domain decomposition but this technique faces difficulties if the system becomes characteristic at the inter-element boundaries. By making the inter-element boundaries move faster than the fastest wave speed associated with the hyperbolic system we are able to overcome this problem.

    Acoustic metamaterials (AMMs) are engineered materials, made from subwavelength structures, that exhibit useful or unusual constitutive properties. There has been intense research interest in AMMs since its first realization in 2000 by Liu et al. A number of functionalities and applications have been proposed and achieved using AMMs. Hyperbolic metamaterials are one of the most important types of metamaterials due to their extreme anisotropy and numerous possible applications, including negative refraction, backward waves, spatial filtering, and subwavelength imaging. Although the importance of acoustic hyperbolic metamaterials (AHMMs) as a tool for achieving full control of acoustic waves is substantial, the realization of a broad-band and truly hyperbolic AMM has not been reported so far. Here, we demonstrate the design and experimental characterization of a broadband AHMM that operates between 1.0 kHz and 2.5 kHz.

    The non-linear dynamic behaviors of thermoelastic circular plate with varying thickness subjected to radially uniformly distributed follower forces are considered. Two coupled non-linear differential equations of motion for this problem are derived in terms of the transverse deflection and radial displacement component of the mid-plane of the plate. Using the Kantorovich averaging method, the differential equation of mode shape of the plate is derived, and the eigenvalue problem is solved by using shooting method. The eigencurves for frequencies and critical loads of the circular plate with unmovable simply supported edge and clamped edge are obtained. The effects of the variation of thickness and temperature on the frequencies and critical loads of the thermoelastic circular plate subjected to radially uniformly distributed follower forces are then discussed.

    A recent proof-of-principle study proposes a nonlinear electrostatic implicit particle-in-cell (PIC) algorithm in one dimension (Chen, Chacon, Barnes, J. Comput. Phys. 230 (2011) 7018). The algorithm employs a kinetically enslaved Jacobian-free Newton-Krylov (JFNK) method, and conserves energy and charge to numerical round-off. In this study, we generalize the method to electromagnetic simulations in 1D using the Darwin approximation of Maxwell's equations, which avoids radiative aliasing noise issues by ordering out the light wave. An implicit, orbit-averaged time-space-centered finite difference scheme is applied to both the 1D Darwin field equations (in potential form) and the 1D-3V particle orbit equations to produce a discrete system that remains exactly charge- and energy-conserving. Furthermore, enabled by the implicit Darwin equations, exact conservation of the canonical momentum per particle in any ignorable direction is enforced via a suitable scattering rule for the magnetic field. Several 1D numer...

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available Humans are known to discount future rewards hyperbolically in time. Nevertheless, a formal recursive model of hyperbolic discounting has been elusive until recently, with the introduction of the hyperbolically discounted temporal difference (HDTD model. Prior to that, models of learning (especially reinforcement learning have relied on exponential discounting, which generally provides poorer fits to behavioral data. Recently, it has been shown that hyperbolic discounting can also be approximated by a summed distribution of exponentially discounted values, instantiated in the µAgents model. The HDTD model and the µAgents model differ in one key respect, namely how they treat sequences of rewards. The µAgents model is a particular implementation of a parallel discounting model, which values sequences based on the summed value of the individual rewards whereas the HDTD model contains a nonlinear interaction. To discriminate among these models, we ascertained how subjects discounted a sequence of three rewards, and then we tested how well each candidate model fit the subject data. The results show that the parallel model generally provides a better fit to the human data.

    Semiclassical quantization rules and numerical calculations are applied to study polariton modes of materials whose permittivity tensor has principal values of opposite sign (so-called hyperbolic materials). The spectra of volume- and surface-confined polaritons are computed for spheroidal nanogranules of hexagonal boron nitride, a natural hyperbolic crystal. The field distribution created by polaritons excited by an external dipole source is predicted to exhibit raylike patterns due to classical periodic orbits. Near-field infrared imaging and Purcell-factor measurements are suggested to test these predictions.

    1998-01-01

    The research topic for this IAS/PCMI Summer Session was nonlinear wave phenomena. Mathematicians from the more theoretical areas of PDEs were brought together with those involved in applications. The goal was to share ideas, knowledge, and perspectives. How waves, or "frequencies", interact in nonlinear phenomena has been a central issue in many of the recent developments in pure and applied analysis. It is believed that wavelet theory-with its simultaneous localization in both physical and frequency space and its lacunarity-is and will be a fundamental new tool in the treatment of the phenomena. Included in this volume are write-ups of the "general methods and tools" courses held by Jeff Rauch and Ingrid Daubechies. Rauch's article discusses geometric optics as an asymptotic limit of high-frequency phenomena. He shows how nonlinear effects are reflected in the asymptotic theory. In the article "Harmonic Analysis, Wavelets and Applications" by Daubechies and Gilbert the main structure of the wavelet theory is...

The method is second order accurate with an explicit time step determined by the grid size away from the boundary. Slope limiters are used on the embedded boundary to avoid non-physical oscillations near shock waves. They show computed examples of supersonic flow past a cylinder and compare with results computed on a body fitted grid. Furthermore, they discuss the implementation of the method for thin geometries, and show computed examples of transonic flow past an airfoil.

  8. Lobachevsky geometry and modern nonlinear problems

    CERN Document Server

    Popov, Andrey

    2014-01-01

    This monograph presents the basic concepts of hyperbolic Lobachevsky geometry and their possible applications to modern nonlinear applied problems in mathematics and physics, summarizing the findings of roughly the last hundred years. The central sections cover the classical building blocks of hyperbolic Lobachevsky geometry, pseudo spherical surfaces theory, net geometrical investigative techniques of nonlinear differential equations in partial derivatives, and their applications to the analysis of the physical models. As the sine-Gordon equation appears to have profound “geometrical roots” and numerous applications to modern nonlinear problems, it is treated as a universal “object” of investigation, connecting many of the problems discussed. The aim of this book is to form a general geometrical view on the different problems of modern mathematics, physics and natural science in general in the context of non-Euclidean hyperbolic geometry.

    The evolution of physical and gauge degrees of freedom in the Einstein and Yang-Mills theories are separated in a gauge-invariant manner. We show that the equations of motion of these theories can always be written in flux-conservative first-order symmetric hyperbolic form. This dynamical form is ideal for global analysis, analytic approximation methods such as gauge-invariant perturbation theory, and numerical solution.

  10. Blow up for a 2x2 strictly hyperbolic system arising from chemical engineering

    Bourdarias, Christian; Junca, Stéphane

    2009-01-01

    We consider a 2x2 hyperbolic system of conservation laws modeling heat less adsorption of a gaseous mixture with two species and infinite exchange kinetics, close to the system of Chromatography. In this model the velocity is not constant because the sorption effect is taken in account. Our aim is to construct a solution with a velocity which blows up at the characteristic boundary. This phenomenon only occurs in particular but physically relevant cases.

    We consider a dynamical system consisting of subsystems indexed by a lattice. Each subsystem has one conserved degree of freedom ("energy") the rest being uniformly hyperbolic. The subsystems are weakly coupled together so that the sum of the subsystem energies remains conserved. We prove that the subsystem energies satisfy the diffusion equation in a suitable scaling limit.

This property is applied to construct conservation laws corresponding to the symmetries of the system. Moreover, via the truncated Painlevé analysis and consistent tanh-function expansion (CTE) method, the soliton-cnoidal periodic wave interaction solutions and corresponding images will be eventually achieved.

    Abstract In this paper, the Dirac operator on the Klein model for the hyperbolic space is considered. A function space containing L2-functions on the sphere Sm-1 in (R)m, which are boundary values of solutions for this operator, is defined, and it is proved that this gives rise to a Hilbert module with a reproducing kernel.

  20. Mass Law Predicts Hyperbolic Hypoxic Ventilatory Response

    Science.gov (United States)

    Severinghaus, John W.

    The hyperbolic hypoxic ventilatory response vs PaO2, HVRp, is interpreted as relecting a mass hyperbolic relationship of cytochrome PcO2 to cytochrome potential Ec, offset 32 torr by the constant diffusion gradient between arterial blood and cytochrome in CB at its constant metabolic rate dot VO_2 . Ec is taken to be a linear function of redox reduction and CB ventilatory drive. As Ec rises in hypoxia, the absolute potentials of each step in the citric acid cycle rises equally while the potential drop across each step remains constant because flux rate remains constant. A hypothetic HVRs ( dot VE vs SaO2) response curve computed from these assumptions is strikingly non linear. A hypothetic HVRp calculated from an assumed linear HVRs cannot be fit to the observed hyperbolic increase of ventilation in response to isocapnic hypoxia at PO2 less than 40 torr. The incompatibility of these results suggest that in future studies HVRs will not be found to be linear, especially below 80% SaO2 and HVRp will fail to be accurately hyperbolic.

Finally, several numeric examples are given.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This article presents the nonlinear free convection boundary layer flow and heat transfer of an incompressible Tangent Hyperbolic non-Newtonian fluid from a vertical porous plate with velocity slip and thermal jump effects. The transformed conservation equations are solved numerically subject to physically appropriate boundary conditions using a second-order accurate implicit finite-difference Keller Box technique. The numerical code is validated with previous studies. The influence of a number of emerging non-dimensional parameters, namely the Weissenberg number (We, the power law index (n, Velocity slip (Sf, Thermal jump (ST, Prandtl number (Pr and dimensionless tangential coordinate ( on velocity and temperature evolution in the boundary layer regime are examined in detail. Furthermore, the effects of these parameters on surface heat transfer rate and local skin friction are also investigated. Validation with earlier Newtonian studies is presented and excellent correlation achieved. It is found that velocity, skin friction and heat transfer rate (Nusselt number is increased with increasing Weissenberg number (We, whereas the temperature is decreased. Increasing power law index (n enhances velocity and heat transfer rate but decreases temperature and skin friction. An increase in Thermal jump (ST is observed to decrease velocity, temperature, local skin friction and Nusselt number. Increasing Velocity slip (Sf is observed to increase velocity and heat transfer rate but decreases temperature and local skin friction. An increasing Prandtl number, (Pr, is found to decrease both velocity and temperature. The study is relevant to chemical materials processing applications.

  7. Stability analysis and H∞ control of discrete T–S fuzzy hyperbolic systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Duan Ruirui

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper focuses on the problem of constraint control for a class of discrete-time nonlinear systems. Firstly, a new discrete T–S fuzzy hyperbolic model is proposed to represent a class of discrete-time nonlinear systems. By means of the parallel distributed compensation (PDC method, a novel asymptotic stabilizing control law with the “soft” constraint property is designed. The main advantage is that the proposed control method may achieve a small control amplitude. Secondly, for an uncertain discrete T–S fuzzy hyperbolic system with external disturbances, by the proposed control method, the robust stability and H∞ performance are developed by using a Lyapunov function, and some sufficient conditions are established through seeking feasible solutions of some linear matrix inequalities (LMIs to obtain several positive diagonally dominant (PDD matrices. Finally, the validity and feasibility of the proposed schemes are demonstrated by a numerical example and a Van de Vusse one, and some comparisons of the discrete T–S fuzzy hyperbolic model with the discrete T–S fuzzy linear one are also given to illustrate the advantage of our approach.

  8. Conserved charges for black holes in Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity coupled to nonlinear electrodynamics in AdS space

    CERN Document Server

    Miskovic, Olivera

    2010-01-01

    Motivated by possible applications within the framework of anti-de Sitter gravity/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence, charged black holes with AdS asymptotics, which are solutions to Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity in D dimensions, and whose electric field is described by a nonlinear electrodynamics (NED) are studied. For a topological static black hole ansatz, the field equations are exactly solved in terms of the electromagnetic stress tensor for an arbitrary NED Lagrangian, in any dimension D and for arbitrary positive values of Gauss-Bonnet coupling. In particular, this procedure reproduces the black hole metric in Born-Infeld and conformally invariant electrodynamics previously found in the literature. Altogether, it extends to D>4 the four-dimensional solution obtained by Soleng in logarithmic electrodynamics, which comes from vacuum polarization effects. Fall-off conditions for the electromagnetic field that ensure the finiteness of the electric charge are also discussed. The black hole mass...

  9. Guided Waves in Asymmetric Hyperbolic Slab Waveguides. The TM Mode Case

    CERN Document Server

    Lyashko, Ekaterina I

    2016-01-01

    Nonlinear guided wave modes in an asymmetric slab waveguide formed by an isotropic dielectric layer placed on a linear or nonlinear substrate and covered by a hyperbolic material are investigated. Optical axis is normal to the slab plane. The dispersion relations for TM waves are found. It is shown that there are additional cut-off frequencies for each TM mode. The effects of the nonlinearity on the dispersion relations are investigated and discussed. There are the modes, which are corresponded with situation where the peak of electric field is localized in the nonlinear substrate. These modes are absent in the linear waveguide. To excite these modes the power must exceed certain threshold value.

    2013-01-01

    In this paper,the problem of determining the most generalLie point symmetries group and conservation laws of a well known nonlinear hyperbolic PDE in mathematical physics called the Hunter-Saxton equation (HSE) is analyzed.By applying the basic Lie symmetry method for the HSE,the classical Lie point symmetry operators are obtained.Also,the algebraic structure of the Lie algebra of symmetries is discussed and an optimal system of one-dimensional subalgebras of the HSE symmetry algebra which creates the preliminary classification of group invariant solutions is constructed.Particularly,the Lie invariants as well as similarity reduced equations corresponding to infinitesimal symmetries are obtained.Mainly,the conservation laws of the HSE are computed via three different methods including Boyer's generalization of Noether's theorem,first homotopy method and second homotopy method.

  11. A Hyperbolic Decay of the Dst Index during the Recovery Phase of Intense Geomagnetic Storms

    CERN Document Server

    Aguado, J; Saiz, E; Cerrato, Y

    2014-01-01

    What one commonly considers for reproducing the recovery phase of magnetosphere, as seen by the Dst index, is exponential function. However, the magnetosphere recovers faster in the first hours than in the late recovery phase. The early steepness followed by the late smoothness in the magnetospheric response is a feature that leads to the proposal of a hyperbolic decay function to reproduce the recovery phase, instead of the exponential function. A superposed epoch analysis of recovery phases of intense storms from 1963-2006 was performed, categorizing the storms by their intensity into five subsets. The hyperbolic decay function reproduces experimental data better than what the exponential function does for any subset of storms, which indicates a non-linear coupling between dDst/dt and Dst. Moreover, this kind of mathematical function, where the degree of reduction of the Dst index depends on time, allows for explaining different lifetimes of the physical mechanisms involved in the recovery phase and provide...

  12. Dispersionless gaps and cavity modes in photonic crystals containing hyperbolic metamaterials

    Xue, Chun-hua; Ding, Yaqiong; Jiang, Hai-tao; Li, Yunhui; Wang, Zhan-shan; Zhang, Ye-wen; Chen, Hong

    2016-03-01

    We theoretically study dispersionless gaps and cavity modes in one-dimensional photonic crystals composed of hyperbolic metamaterials and dielectric. Bragg gaps in conventional all-dielectric photonic crystals are always dispersive because propagating phases in two kinds of dielectrics decrease with incident angle. Here, based on phase variation compensation between a hyperbolic metamaterial layer and an isotropic dielectric layer, the dispersion of the gap can be offset and thus a dispersionless gap can be realized. Moreover, the dispersionless property of such gap has a wide parameter space. The dispersionless gap can be used to realize a dispersionless cavity mode. The dispersionless gaps and cavity modes will possess significant applications for all-angle reflectors, high-Q filters excited with finite-sized sources, and nonlinear wave mixing processes.

  13. The algebraic-hyperbolic approach to the linearized gravitational constraints on a Minkowski background

    Science.gov (United States)

    Winicour, Jeffrey

    2017-08-01

    An algebraic-hyperbolic method for solving the Hamiltonian and momentum constraints has recently been shown to be well posed for general nonlinear perturbations of the initial data for a Schwarzschild black hole. This is a new approach to solving the constraints of Einstein’s equations which does not involve elliptic equations and has potential importance for the construction of binary black hole data. In order to shed light on the underpinnings of this approach, we consider its application to obtain solutions of the constraints for linearized perturbations of Minkowski space. In that case, we find the surprising result that there are no suitable Cauchy hypersurfaces in Minkowski space for which the linearized algebraic-hyperbolic constraint problem is well posed.

  14. A multi-dimensional, energy- and charge-conserving, nonlinearly implicit, electromagnetic Vlasov-Darwin particle-in-cell algorithm

    CERN Document Server

    Chen, Guangye

    2015-01-01

    For decades, the Vlasov-Darwin model has been recognized to be attractive for particle-in-cell (PIC) kinetic plasma simulations in non-radiative electromagnetic regimes, to avoid radiative noise issues and gain computational efficiency. However, the Darwin model results in an elliptic set of field equations that renders conventional explicit time integration unconditionally unstable. Here, we explore a fully implicit PIC algorithm for the Vlasov-Darwin model in multiple dimensions, which overcomes many difficulties of traditional semi-implicit Darwin PIC algorithms. The finite-difference scheme for Darwin field equations and particle equations of motion is space-time-centered, employing particle sub-cycling and orbit-averaging. The algorithm conserves total energy, local charge, canonical-momentum in the ignorable direction, and preserves the Coulomb gauge exactly. An asymptotically well-posed fluid preconditioner allows efficient use of large time steps and cell sizes, which are determined by accuracy consid...

  15. A remark on geometric desingularization of a non-hyperbolic point using hyperbolic space

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kuehn, Christian

    2016-06-01

    A steady state (or equilibrium point) of a dynamical system is hyperbolic if the Jacobian at the steady state has no eigenvalues with zero real parts. In this case, the linearized system does qualitatively capture the dynamics in a small neighborhood of the hyperbolic steady state. However, one is often forced to consider non-hyperbolic steady states, for example in the context of bifurcation theory. A geometric technique to desingularize non-hyperbolic points is the blow-up method. The classical case of the method is motivated by desingularization techniques arising in algebraic geometry. The idea is to blow up the steady state to a sphere or a cylinder. In the blown-up space, one is then often able to gain additional hyperbolicity at steady states. The method has also turned out to be a key tool to desingularize multiple time scale dynamical systems with singularities. In this paper, we discuss an explicit example of the blow-up method where we replace the sphere in the blow-up by hyperbolic space. It is shown that the calculations work in the hyperbolic space case as for the spherical case. This approach may be even slightly more convenient if one wants to work with directional charts. Hence, it is demonstrated that the sphere should be viewed as an auxiliary object in the blow-up construction. Other smooth manifolds are also natural candidates to be inserted at steady states. Furthermore, we conjecture several problems where replacing the sphere could be particularly useful, i.e., in the context of singularities of geometric flows, for avoiding compactification, and generating 'interior' steady states.

  16. A three-dimensional finite volume method for conservation laws in conjunction with modified solution for nonlinear coupled constitutive relations

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jiang, Zhongzheng; Zhao, Wenwen; Chen, Weifang

    2016-11-01

    Non-equilibrium effects play a vital role in high-speed and rarefied gas flows and the accurate simulation of these flow regimes are far beyond the capability of near-local-equilibrium Navier-Stokes-Fourier equations. Eu proposed generalized hydrodynamic equations which are consistent with the laws of irreversible thermodynamics to solve this problem. Based on Eu's generalized hydrodynamics equations, a computation model, namely the nonlinear coupled constitutive relations (NCCR), was developed by R.S. Myong and applied successfully to one-dimensional shock wave structure and two-dimensional rarefied flows. In this paper, finite volume schemes, including LU-SGS time advance scheme, MUSCL interpolation and AUSMPW+ scheme, are firstly adopted to investigate NCCR model's validity and potential in three-dimensional complex hypersonic rarefied gas flows. Moreover, in order to solve the computational stability problems in 3D complex flows, a modified solution is developed for the NCCR model. Finally, the modified solution is tested for a slip complex flow over a 3D hollow cylinder-flare configuration. The numerical results show that the NCCR model by the modified solution yields good solutions in better agreement with the DSMC results and experimental data than NSF equations, and imply NCCR model's great potential capability in further application.

  17. Lagrange interpolation and modified cubic B-spline differential quadrature methods for solving hyperbolic partial differential equations with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jiwari, Ram

    2015-08-01

    In this article, the author proposed two differential quadrature methods to find the approximate solution of one and two dimensional hyperbolic partial differential equations with Dirichlet and Neumann's boundary conditions. The methods are based on Lagrange interpolation and modified cubic B-splines respectively. The proposed methods reduced the hyperbolic problem into a system of second order ordinary differential equations in time variable. Then, the obtained system is changed into a system of first order ordinary differential equations and finally, SSP-RK3 scheme is used to solve the obtained system. The well known hyperbolic equations such as telegraph, Klein-Gordon, sine-Gordon, Dissipative non-linear wave, and Vander Pol type non-linear wave equations are solved to check the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed methods. The numerical results are shown in L∞ , RMS andL2 errors form.

    2016-08-01

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) is known to have a semiconductor-to-metal phase transition at ˜68 °C. Therefore, it can be used as a tunable component of an active metamaterial. The lamellar metamaterial studied in this work is composed of subwavelength VO2 and Au layers and is designed to undergo a temperature controlled transition from the optical hyperbolic phase to the metallic phase. VO2 films and VO2/Au lamellar metamaterial stacks have been fabricated and studied in electrical conductivity and optical (transmission and reflection) experiments. The observed temperature-dependent changes in the reflection and transmission spectra of the metamaterials and VO2 thin films are in a good qualitative agreement with theoretical predictions. The demonstrated optical hyperbolic-to-metallic phase transition is a unique physical phenomenon with the potential to enable advanced control of light-matter interactions.

  19. Unknotting tunnels in hyperbolic 3-manifolds

    CERN Document Server

    Adams, Colin

    2012-01-01

    An unknotting tunnel in a 3-manifold with boundary is a properly embedded arc, the complement of an open neighborhood of which is a handlebody. A geodesic with endpoints on the cusp boundary of a hyperbolic 3-manifold and perpendicular to the cusp boundary is called a vertical geodesic. Given a vertical geodesic in a hyperbolic 3-manifold M, we find sufficient conditions for it to be an unknotting tunnel. In particular, if the vertical geodesic corresponds to a 4-bracelet, 5-bracelet or 6-bracelet in the universal cover and has short enough length, it must be an unknotting tunnel. Furthermore, we consider a vertical geodesic that satisfies the elder sibling property, which means that in the universal cover, every horoball except the one centered at infinity is connected to a larger horoball by a lift of the vertical geodesic. Such a vertical geodesic with length less than ln(2) is then shown to be an unknotting tunnel.

  20. Is the Bianchi identity always hyperbolic?

    CERN Document Server

    Rácz, István

    2014-01-01

    We consider $n+1$ dimensional smooth Riemannian and Lorentzian spaces satisfying Einstein's equations. The base manifold is assumed to be smoothly foliated by a one-parameter family of hypersurfaces. In both cases---likewise it is usually done in the Lorentzian case---Einstein's equations may be split into `Hamiltonian' and `momentum' constraints and a `reduced' set of field equations. It is shown that regardless whether the primary space is Riemannian or Lorentzian whenever the foliating hypersurfaces are Riemannian the `Hamiltonian' and `momentum' type expressions are subject to a subsidiary first order symmetric hyperbolic system. Since this subsidiary system is linear and homogeneous in the `Hamiltonian' and `momentum' type expressions the hyperbolicity of the system implies that in both cases the solutions to the `reduced' set of field equations are also solutions to the full set of equations provided that the constraints hold on one of the hypersurfaces foliating the base manifold.

    in the local-response approximation and in the hydrodynamic Drude model can differ considerably.

  2. Emergent hyperbolic geometry of growing simplicial complexes

    CERN Document Server

    Bianconi, Ginestra

    2016-01-01

    A large variety of interacting complex systems, including brain functional networks, protein interactions and collaboration networks is characterized by interactions occurring between more than two nodes. These systems are described by simplicial complexes. Simplicial complexes are formed by simplices (nodes, links, triangles, tetrahedra etc.) that have a natural geometric interpretation. As such they are ideal structures to investigate the hidden geometry of complex networks and explore whether this geometry is hyperbolic. Here we show an hyperbolic network geometry emerges spontaneously from models of growing simplicial complexes. The statistical and geometrical properties of the growing simplicial complexes strongly depend on their dimensionality and display all the universal properties of real complex networks. Interestingly, when the network dynamics includes an heterogeneous fitness of the faces, the growing simplicial complex can undergo phase transitions that are reflected by dramatic changes in the n...

  3. The remains of a spinning, hyperbolic encounter

    De Vittori, Lorenzo; Gupta, Anuradha; Jetzer, Philippe

    2014-01-01

    We review a recently proposed approach to construct gravitational wave (GW) polarization states of unbound spinning compact binaries. Through this rather simple method, we are able to include corrections due to the dominant order spin-orbit interactions, in the quadrupolar approximation and in a semi-analytic way. We invoke the 1.5 post-Newtonian (PN) accurate quasi-Keplerian parametrization for the radial part of the dynamics and impose its temporal evolution in the PN accurate polarization states equations. Further, we compute 1PN accurate amplitude corrections for the polarization states of non-spinning compact binaries on hyperbolic orbits. As an interesting application, we perform comparisons with previously available results for both the GW signals in the case of non-spinning binaries and the theoretical prediction for the amplitude of the memory effect on the metric after the hyperbolic passage.

An asymptotically well-posed fluid preconditioner allows efficient use of large cell sizes, which are determined by accuracy considerations, not stability, and can be orders of magnitude larger than required in a standard explicit electromagnetic PIC simulation. We demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency properties of the algorithm with various numerical experiments in 2D-3V.

    We explain the design of one dimensional Hyperbolic Metamaterials (HMM) using a genetic algorithm (GA) and provide sample applications including the realization of negative refraction. The design method is a powerful optimization approach to find the optimal performance of such structures, which "naturally" finds HMM structures that are globally optimized for specific applications. We explain how a fitness function can be incorporated into the GA for different metamaterial properties.

  6. On hyperbolic fixed points in ultrametric dynamics

    Lindahl, Karl-Olof; 10.1134/S2070046610030052

    2011-01-01

    Let K be a complete ultrametric field. We give lower and upper bounds for the size of linearization discs for power series over K near hyperbolic fixed points. These estimates are maximal in the sense that there exist examples where these estimates give the exact size of the corresponding linearization disc. In particular, at repelling fixed points, the linearization disc is equal to the maximal disc on which the power series is injective.

  7. Studies in the Hyperbolic Circle Problem

    Cherubini, Giacomo

    In this thesis we study the remainder term e(s) in the hyperbolic lattice point counting problem. Our main approach to this problem is that of the spectral theory of automorphic forms. We show that the function e(s) exhibits properties similar to those of almost periodic functions, and we study d...... distribution for certain integral versions of it. Finally we describe what results can be obtained by application of fractional calculus, especially fractional integration to small order, to the problem....

  8. Mapped tent pitching schemes for hyperbolic systems

    2016-01-01

    A spacetime domain can be progressively meshed by tent shaped objects. Numerical methods for solving hyperbolic systems using such tent meshes to advance in time have been proposed previously. Such schemes have the ability to advance in time by different amounts at different spatial locations. This paper explores a technique by which standard discretizations, including explicit time stepping, can be used within tent-shaped spacetime domains. The technique transforms the equations within a spa...

    We study finite metric spaces with elements picked from, and distances consistent with, ambient Riemannian manifolds. The concepts of negative type and strictly negative type are reviewed, and the conjecture that hyperbolic spaces are of strictly negative type is settled, in the affirmative....... The technique of the proof is subsequently applied to show that every compact manifold of negative type must have trivial fundamental group, and to obtain a necessary criterion for product manifolds to be of negative type....

  10. Accuracy property of certain hyperbolic difference schemes

    1976-12-01

    An accuracy property called the CFL1 property is shared by several successful difference schemes. It appears to be a property at least as important as the property of higher-order accuracy for hyperbolic difference schemes when weak solutions (e.g., shocks) are sought. Investigation of this property leads to suggestions of ways to improve the accuracy in such wavecodes as WONDY, CHARTD, and THREEDY. 10 figures.

    Kleinschmidt, Axel; Palmkvist, Jakob

    2010-01-01

    We study the recently discovered isomorphisms between hyperbolic Weyl groups and unfamiliar modular groups. These modular groups are defined over integer domains in normed division algebras, and we focus on the cases involving quaternions and octonions. We outline how to construct and analyse automorphic forms for these groups; their structure depends on the underlying arithmetic properties of the integer domains. We also give a new realization of the Weyl group W(E8) in terms of unit octavians and their automorphism group.

  12. Remarks on the notion of global hyperbolicity

    CERN Document Server

    Sánchez, Miguel

    2007-01-01

    Global hyperbolicity is a classical and well-known concept, which lies in the core of General Relativity. Here we discuss briefly five approaches to this concept. They yield different definitions which become natural in diverse contexts: the initial value problem, singularity theorems, existence of maximizing causal geodesics, possibility to split globally the spacetime, causal boundaries. The neat formulation and definitive equivalence between these definitions have been completed only recently. A very brief summary is presented.

    CERN Document Server

    Anderson, A; York, J W; Anderson, Arlen; Choquet-Bruhat, Yvonne

    1999-01-01

    We discuss several explicitly causal hyperbolic formulations of Einstein's dynamical 3+1 equations in a coherent way, emphasizing throughout the fundamental role of the ``slicing function,'' $\\alpha$---the quantity that relates the lapse $N$ to the determinant of the spatial metric $\\bar{g}$ through $N = \\bar{g}^{1/2} \\alpha$. The slicing function allows us to demonstrate explicitly that every foliation of spacetime by spatial time-slices can be used in conjunction with the causal hyperbolic forms of the dynamical Einstein equations. Specifically, the slicing function plays an essential role (1) in a clearer form of the canonical action principle and Hamiltonian dynamics for gravity and leads to a recasting (2) of the Bianchi identities evolution of the gravitational constraints in vacuum, and also (3) of evolution of the energy and momentum components of the stress tensor in the presence of matter, (4) in an explicit rendering of four hyperbolic formulations of Einstein's equations with only physical charact...

  14. Conformal plasmonic and hyperbolic metamaterials (Conference Presentation)

    2016-09-01

    The majority of plasmonic and metamaterials research utilizes noble metals such as gold and silver which commonly operate in the visible region. However, these materials are not well suited for many applications due to their low melting temperature and polarization response at longer wavelengths. A viable alternative is aluminum doped zinc oxide (AZO); a high melting point, low loss, visibly transparent conducting oxide which can be tuned to show strong plasmonic behavior in the near-infrared region. Due to it's ultrahigh conformality, atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a powerful tool for the fabrication of the nanoscale features necessary for many nanoplasmonic and optical metamaterials. Despite many attempts, high quality, low loss AZO has not been achieved with carrier concentrations high enough to support plasmonic behavior at the important telecommunication wavelengths (ca. 1550 nm) by ALD. Here, we present a simple process for synthesizing high carrier concentration, thin film AZO with low losses via ALD that match the highest quality films created by all other methods. We show that this material is tunable by thermal treatment conditions, altering aluminum concentration, and changing buffer layer thickness. The use of this process is demonstrated by creating hyperbolic metamaterials with both a multilayer and embedded nanowire geometry. Hyperbolic dispersion is proven by negative refraction and numerical calculations in agreement with the effective medium approximation. This paves the way for fabricating high quality hyperbolic metamaterial coatings on high aspect ratio nanostructures that cannot be created by any other method.

  15. Arithmetic and Hyperbolic Structures in String Theory

    CERN Document Server

    Persson, Daniel

    2010-01-01

    This monograph is an updated and extended version of the author's PhD thesis. It consists of an introductory text followed by two separate parts which are loosely related but may be read independently of each other. In Part I we analyze certain hyperbolic structures arising when studying gravity in the vicinity of a spacelike singularity (the "BKL-limit"). In this limit, spatial points decouple and the dynamics exhibits ultralocal behaviour which may be described in terms of a (possibly chaotic) hyperbolic billiard. In all supergravities arising as low-energy limits of string theory or M-theory, the billiard dynamics takes place within the fundamental Weyl chambers of certain hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebras, suggesting that these algebras generate hidden infinite-dimensional symmetries of the theory. Part II of the thesis is devoted to a study of how (U-)dualities in string theory provide powerful constraints on perturbative and non-perturbative quantum corrections. These dualities are described by certain arit...

  16. Constrained hyperbolic divergence cleaning in smoothed particle magnetohydrodynamics with variable cleaning speeds

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tricco, Terrence S.; Price, Daniel J.; Bate, Matthew R.

    2016-10-01

    We present an updated constrained hyperbolic/parabolic divergence cleaning algorithm for smoothed particle magnetohydrodynamics (SPMHD) that remains conservative with wave cleaning speeds which vary in space and time. This is accomplished by evolving the quantity ψ /ch instead of ψ. Doing so allows each particle to carry an individual wave cleaning speed, ch, that can evolve in time without needing an explicit prescription for how it should evolve, preventing circumstances which we demonstrate could lead to runaway energy growth related to variable wave cleaning speeds. This modification requires only a minor adjustment to the cleaning equations and is trivial to adopt in existing codes. Finally, we demonstrate that our constrained hyperbolic/parabolic divergence cleaning algorithm, run for a large number of iterations, can reduce the divergence of the magnetic field to an arbitrarily small value, achieving ∇ ṡ B = 0 to machine precision.

    We introduce a class of singular partial differential equations, the second-order hyperbolic Fuchsian systems, and we investigate the associated initial value problem when data are imposed on the singularity. First of all, we analyze a class of equations in which hyperbolicity is not assumed and we construct asymptotic solutions of arbitrary order. Second, for the proposed class of second-order hyperbolic Fuchsian systems, we establish the existence of solutions with prescribed asymptotic beh...

    Borthwick, D; Taylor, E; Borthwick, David; Rae, Alan Mc; Taylor, Edward

    1996-01-01

    Take two isomorphic convex co-compact co-infinite volume Kleinian groups, whose regular sets are diffeomorphic. The quotient of hyperbolic 3-space by these groups gives two hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose scattering operators may be compared. We prove that the operator norm of the difference between the scattering operators is small, then the groups are related by a coorespondingly small quasi-conformal deformation. This in turn implies that the two hyperbolic 3-manifolds are quasi-isometric.

    In this paper, we give a method to construct holonomy matrices of hyperbolic 3-manifolds by extending the known method of hyperbolic 2-manifolds. It enables us to consider hyperbolic 3-manifolds with nontrivial holonomies. We apply our method to an ideal tetrahedron and succeed in making the holonomies nontrivial. We also derive the partition function of the ideal tetrahedron with nontrivial holonomies by using the duality proposed by Dimofte, Gaiotto and Gukov.

    Full Text Available We use a three-step iterative process to prove some strong and Δ-convergence results for nonexpansive mappings in a uniformly convex hyperbolic space, a nonlinear domain. Three-step iterative processes have numerous applications and hyperbolic spaces contain Banach spaces (linear domains as well as CAT(0 spaces. Thus our results can be viewed as extension and generalization of several known results in uniformly convex Banach spaces as well as CAT(0 spaces.

  3. Considerations on the hyperbolic complex Klein-Gordon equation

    CERN Document Server

    2010-01-01

    The article summarizes and consolidates investigations on hyperbolic complex numbers with respect to the Klein-Gordon equation for fermions and bosons. The hyperbolic complex numbers are applied in the sense that complex extensions of groups and algebras are performed not with the complex unit, but with the product of complex and hyperbolic unit. The modified complexification is the key ingredient for the theory. The Klein-Gordon equation is represented in this framework in the form of the first invariant of the Poincar\\'e group, the mass operator, in order to emphasize its geometric origin. The possibility of new interactions arising from hyperbolic complex gauge transformations is discussed.

    Control of the electromagnetic waves in nano-scale structured materials is crucial to the development of next generation photonic circuits and devices. In this context, hyperbolic metamaterials, where elliptical isofrequency surfaces are morphed into surfaces with exotic hyperbolic topologies when the structure parameters are tuned, have shown unprecedented control over light propagation and interaction. Here we show that such topological transitions can be even more unusual when the hyperbolic metamaterial is endowed with nonreciprocity. Judicious design of metamaterials with reduced spatial symmetries, together with the breaking of time-reversal symmetry through magnetization, is shown to result in nonreciprocal dispersion and one-way topological phase transitions in hyperbolic metamaterials.

    Given the current interest in the use of flyby trajectories for human Mars exploration, a key requirement is the capability to execute hyperbolic rendezvous. Hyperbolic rendezvous is used to transport crew from a Mars centered orbit, to a transiting Earth bound habitat that does a flyby. Representative cases are taken from future potential missions of this type, and a thorough sensitivity analysis of the hyperbolic rendezvous phase is performed. This includes early engine cutoff, missed burn times, and burn misalignment. A finite burn engine model is applied that assumes the hyperbolic rendezvous phase is done with at least two burns.

    Let p,q,rp,q,r be positive integers. Complex hyperbolic (p,q,r)(p,q,r) triangle groups are representations of the hyperbolic (p,q,r)(p,q,r) reflection triangle group to the holomorphic isometry group of complex hyperbolic space H2CHℂ2, where the generators fix complex lines. In this paper, we obtain all the discrete and faithful complex hyperbolic (3,3,n)(3,3,n) triangle groups for n≥4n≥4. Our result solves a conjecture of Schwartz in the case when p=q=3p=q=3.

    2016-01-01

    We show that deliberately engineered spatially dispersive metamaterial slab can enable co-existence and phase matching of contra-propagating ordinary fundamental and backward second harmonic electromagnetic modes. Energy flux and phase velocity are contra-directed in backward waves which determines extraordinary nonlinear-optical propagation processes. Frequencies, phase and group velocities, as well as nanowavequide losses inherent to the electromagnetic modes supported by the metamaterial can be tailored to optimize nonlinear-optical conversion of frequencies and propagation directions of the coupled waves. Such a possibility, which is of paramount importance for nonlinear photonics, is proved with numerical model of the hyperbolic metamaterial made of carbon nanotubes standing on metal surface. Extraordinary properties of backward-wave second harmonic in the THz and IR propagating in the reflection direction are investigated with focus on pulsed regime.

    2017-07-01

    Subpicosecond or femtosecond optical pulse propagation in the inhomogeneous fiber can be described by a higher-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation with variable coefficients, which is investigated in the paper. Via the Ablowitz-Kaup-Newell-Segur system and symbolic computation, the Lax pair and infinitely-many conservation laws are deduced. Based on the Lax pair and a modified Darboux transformation technique, the first- and second-order rogue wave solutions are constructed. Effects of the groupvelocity dispersion and third-order dispersion on the properties of the first- and second-order rouge waves are graphically presented and analyzed: The groupvelocity dispersion and third-order dispersion both affect the ranges and shapes of the first- and second-order rogue waves: The third-order dispersion can produce a skew angle of the first-order rogue wave and the skew angle rotates counterclockwise with the increase of the groupvelocity dispersion, when the groupvelocity dispersion and third-order dispersion are chosen as the constants; When the groupvelocity dispersion and third-order dispersion are taken as the functions of the propagation distance, the linear, X-shaped and parabolic trajectories of the rogue waves are obtained.

    2015-08-15

    Under investigation in this paper is a fifth-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation, which describes the propagation of attosecond pulses in an optical fiber. Based on the Lax pair, infinitely-many conservation laws are derived. With the aid of auxiliary functions, bilinear forms, one-, two- and three-soliton solutions in analytic forms are generated via the Hirota method and symbolic computation. Soliton velocity varies linearly with the coefficients of the high-order terms. Head-on interaction between the bidirectional two solitons and overtaking interaction between the unidirectional two solitons as well as the bound state are depicted. For the interactions among the three solitons, two head-on and one overtaking interactions, three overtaking interactions, an interaction between a bound state and a single soliton and the bound state are displayed. Graphical analysis shows that the interactions between the two solitons are elastic, and interactions among the three solitons are pairwise elastic. Stability analysis yields the modulation instability condition for the soliton solutions.

    A numerical solution of MHD flow of tangent hyperbolic fluid model over a stretching cylinder is obtained in this paper. The governing boundary layer equation of tangent hyperbolic fluid is converted into an ordinary differential equation using similarity transformations, which is then solved numerically by applying the implicit finite difference Keller box method. The effects of various parameters on velocity profiles are analyzed and discussed in detail. The values of skin friction coefficient are tabulated and plotted in order to understand the flow behavior near the surface of the cylinder. For validity of the model a comparison of the present work with the literature has been made. - Highlights: • Non-Newtonian (tangent hyperbolic) fluid is taken by using boundary layer approximation. • MHD effects are assumed. • To solve the highly non-linear equations by numerical approach (Keller box Method). • Keller box method is one of the best computational methods capable of solving different engineering problems in fluid mechanics. • Keller box method is an implicit method and has truncation error of order h{sup 2}.

Thus, if the C1 solution to the initial-boundary value problem blows up in a finite time, then the solution itself must tend to the infinity at the starting point of singularity.

    Stokes–Fourier theory is established for the first time via a formal asymptotic analysis in the stiff relaxation limit. From a numerical point of view, the governing partial differential equations are very challenging, since they form a large nonlinear hyperbolic PDE system that includes stiff source terms and non-conservative products. We apply the successful family of one-step ADER–WENO finite volume (FV) and ADER discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite element schemes to the HPR model in the stiff relaxation limit, and compare the numerical results with exact or numerical reference solutions obtained for the Euler and Navier–Stokes equations. Numerical convergence results are also provided. To show the universality of the HPR model, the paper is rounded-off with an application to wave propagation in elastic solids, for which one only needs to switch off the strain relaxation source term in the governing PDE system. We provide various examples showing that for the purpose of flow visualization, the distortion tensor A seems to be particularly useful.

  14. Resolution of a shock in hyperbolic systems modified by weak dispersion

    Science.gov (United States)

    El, G. A.

    2005-09-01

    We present a way to deal with dispersion-dominated "shock-type" transition in the absence of completely integrable structure for the systems that one may characterize as strictly hyperbolic regularized by a small amount of dispersion. The analysis is performed by assuming that the dispersive shock transition between two different constant states can be modeled by an expansion fan solution of the associated modulation (Whitham) system for the short-wavelength nonlinear oscillations in the transition region (the so-called Gurevich-Pitaevskii problem). We consider both single-wave and bidirectional systems. The main mathematical assumption is that of hyperbolicity of the Whitham system for the solutions of our interest. By using general properties of the Whitham averaging for a certain class of nonlinear dispersive systems and specific features of the Cauchy data prescription on characteristics we derive a set of transition conditions for the dispersive shock, actually bypassing full integration of the modulation equations. Along with the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) and modified KdV (mKdV) equations as model examples, we consider a nonintegrable system describing fully nonlinear ion-acoustic waves in collisionless plasma. In all cases our transition conditions are in complete agreement with previous analytical and numerical results.

  15. Delay-dependent robust H∞ control for uncertain fuzzy hyperbolic systems with multiple delays

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    The robust H∞ control problem was considered for a class of fuzzy hyperbolic model (FHM) systems with parametric uncertainties and multiple delays. First, FHM modeling method was presented for time-delay nonlinear systems. Then, by using Lyapunov-Krasovskii approaches, delay-dependent sufficient condition for the existence of a kind of state feedback controller was proposed, which was expressed as linear matrix inequalities (LMIs). The controller can guarantee that the resulting closed-loop system is robustly asymptotically stable with a prescribed H∞ performance level for all admissible uncertainties and time-delay. Finally, a simulation example was provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

    Full Text Available The aim of the present paper is to investigate shock and rarefaction waves in a hyperbolic model of incompressible materials. To this aim, we use the so-called extended quasi-thermal-incompressible (EQTI model, recently proposed by Gouin & Ruggeri (H. Gouin, T. Ruggeri, Internat. J. Non-Linear Mech. 47 688–693 (2012. In particular, we use as constitutive equation a variant of the well-known Bousinnesq approximation in which the specific volume depends not only on the temperature but also on the pressure. The limit case of ideal incompressibility, namely when the thermal expansion coefficient and the compressibility factor vanish, is also considered.

    JIN Hong; ZOU Zhi-li

    2008-01-01

    A new form of hyperbolic mild slope equations is derived with the inclusion of the amplitude dispersion of nonlinear waves. The effects of including the amplitude dispersion effect on the wave propagation are discussed. Wave breaking mechanism is incorporated into the present model to apply the new equations to surf zone. The equations are solved numerically for regular wave propagation over a shoal and in surf zone, and a comparison is made against measurements. It is found that the inclusion of the amplitude dispersion can also improve model's performance on prediction of wave heights around breaking point for the wave motions in surf zone.

    A., Ahmad; Asghar, S.; Alsaedi, A.

    2014-07-01

    This article explores the boundary layer flow and heat transfer of a viscous nanofluid bounded by a hyperbolically stretching sheet. Effects of Brownian and thermophoretic diffusions on heat transfer and concentration of nanoparticles are given due attention. The resulting nonlinear problems are computed for analytic and numerical solutions. The effects of Brownian motion and thermophoretic property are found to increase the temperature of the medium and reduce the heat transfer rate. The thermophoretic property thus enriches the concentration while the Brownian motion reduces the concentration of the nanoparticles in the fluid. Opposite effects of these properties are observed on the Sherwood number.

    This is the final report of a three-year, Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The authors calculated observables in strongly chaotic systems. This is difficult to do because of a lack of a workable orbit classification for such systems. This is due to global geometrical information from the original dynamical system being entangled in an unknown way throughout the orbit sequence. They used geometrical methods from modern mathematics and recent connections between global geometry and modern quantum field theory to study the natural geometrical objects belonging to hard chaos-hyperbolic manifolds.

    We classify the quadratic extensions $K=\\mathbb{Q}[\\sqrt{d}]$ and the finite groups for which the group ring $\\mathfrak{o}_K[G]$ of over the ring $\\mathfrak{o}_K$ of integers of has the property that the group $\\mathcal{U}_1(\\mathfrak{o}_K[G])$ of units of augmentation 1 is hyperbolic. We also construct units in the $\\mathbb{Z}$-order $\\mathcal{H}(\\mathfrak{o}_K)$ of the quaternion algebra $\\mathcal{H}(K)=\\left\\frac{-1,-1}{k}(\\right)$, when it is a division algebra.

    We show that for a very general and natural class of curvature functions, the problem of finding a complete strictly convex hypersurface satisfying f({\\kappa}) = {\\sigma} over (0,1) with a prescribed asymptotic boundary {\\Gamma} at infinity has at least one solution which is a "vertical graph" over the interior (or the exterior) of {\\Gamma}. There is uniqueness for a certain subclass of these curvature functions and as {\\sigma} varies between 0 and 1, these hypersurfaces foliate the two components of the complement of the hyperbolic convex hull of {\\Gamma}.

    Sandoval-Villalbazo, A; García-Perciante, A L

    2006-01-01

    This paper shows that a hyperbolic equation for heat conduction can be obtained directly using the tenets of linear irreversible thermodynamics in the context of the five dimensional space-time metric originally proposed by T. Kaluza back in 1922. The associated speed of propagation is slightly lower than the speed of light by a factor inversely proportional to the specific charge of the fluid element. Moreover, consistency with the second law of thermodynamics is achieved. Possible implications in the context of physics of clusters of galaxies of this result are briefly discussed.

    2008-01-01

    Two first order strongly hyperbolic formulations of scalar tensor theories of gravity (STT) allowing non-minimal couplings (Jordan frame) are presented along the lines of the 3+1 decomposition of spacetime. One is based on the Bona-Masso formulation while the other one employs a conformal decomposition similar to that of Baumgarte-Shapiro-Shibata-Nakamura. A modified Bona-Masso slicing condition adapted to the STT is proposed for the analysis. This study confirms that STT posses a well posed Cauchy problem even when formulated in the Jordan frame.

    2016-01-01

    Hyperbolic Meta-Materials~(HMMs) are anisotropic materials with permittivity tensor that has both positive and negative eigenvalues. Here we report that by using a type II HMM as cladding material, a waveguide which only supports higher order modes can be achieved, while the lower order modes become leaky and are absorbed in the HMM cladding. This counter intuitive property can lead to novel application in optical communication and photonic integrated circuit. The loss in our HMM-Insulator-HMM~(HIH) waveguide is smaller than that of similar guided mode in a Metal-Insulator-Metal~(MIM) waveguide.

    A thermal antenna is an electromagnetic source which emits in its surrounding, a spatially coherent field in the infrared frequency range. Usually, its emission pattern changes with the wavelength so that the heat flux it radiates is weakly directive. Here, we show that a class of hyperbolic materials, possesses a Brewster angle which is weakly dependent on the wavelength, so that they can radiate like a true thermal antenna with a highly directional heat flux. The realization of these sources could open a new avenue in the field of thermal management in far-field regime.

    Based on the concept of material event as an elementary material source that is concentrated on metric sphere of zero radius --- light-cone of Minkowski space-time, we deduce the analog of Coulomb's law for hyperbolic space-time field universally acting between the events of space-time. Collective field that enables interaction of world lines of a pair of particles at rest contains a standard 3-dimensional Coulomb's part and logarithmic addendum. We've found that the Coulomb's part depends on a fine balance between causal and geometric space-time characteristics (the two regularizations concordance).

    2014-01-01

    Engineering plasmonic metamaterials with anisotropic optical dispersion enables us to tailor the properties of metamaterial-based waveguides. We investigate plasmonic waveguides with dielectric cores and multilayer metal-dielectric claddings with hyperbolic dispersion. Without using any homogenization, we calculate the resonant eigenmodes of the finite-width cladding layers, and find agreement with the resonant features in the dispersion of the cladded waveguides. We show that at the resonant widths, the propagating modes of the waveguides are coupled to the cladding eigenmodes and hence, are strongly absorbed. By avoiding the resonant widths in the design of the actual waveguides, the strong absorption can be eliminated.

    Iorsh, Ivan; Ginzburg, Pavel; Belov, Pavel; Kivshar, Yuri

    2014-01-01

    We study the Compton scattering of light by free electrons inside a hyperbolic medium. We demonstrate that the unconventional dispersion and local density of states of the electromagnetic modes in such media can lead to a giant Compton shift and dramatic enhancement of the scattering cross section. We develop an universal approach for the study of coupled multi-photon processes in nanostructured media and derive the spectral intensity function of the scattered radiation for realistic metamaterial structures. We predict the Compton shift of the order of a few meVs for the infrared spectrum that is at least one order of magnitude larger than the Compton shift in any other system.

  12. Hyperbolic normal forms and invariant manifolds: Astronomical applications

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available In recent years, the study of the dynamics induced by the invariant manifolds of unstable periodic orbits in nonlinear Hamiltonian dynamical systems has led to a number of applications in celestial mechanics and dynamical astronomy. Two applications of main current interest are i space manifold dynamics, i.e. the use of the manifolds in space mission design, and, in a quite different context, ii the study of spiral structure in galaxies. At present, most approaches to the computation of orbits associated with manifold dynamics (i.e. periodic or asymptotic orbits rely either on the use of the so-called Poincaré - Lindstedt method, or on purely numerical methods. In the present article we briefly review an analytic method of computation of invariant manifolds, first introduced by Moser (1958, and developed in the canonical framework by Giorgilli (2001. We use a simple example to demonstrate how hyperbolic normal form computations can be performed, and we refer to the analytic continuation method of Ozorio de Almeida and co-workers, by which we can considerably extend the initial domain of convergence of Moser’s normal form.

  13. An Internal Observability Estimate for Stochastic Hyperbolic Equations

    OpenAIRE

    2015-01-01

    This paper is addressed to establishing an internal observability estimate for some linear stochastic hyperbolic equations. The key is to establish a new global Carleman estimate for forward stochastic hyperbolic equations in the $L^2$-space. Different from the deterministic case, a delicate analysis of the adaptedness for some stochastic processes is required in the stochastic setting.

    We analyse the mathematical underpinnings of a mixed hyperbolic-elliptic form of the Einstein equations of motion in which the lapse function is determined by specified mean curvature and the shift is arbitrary. We also examine a new recently-published first order symmetric hyperbolic form of the equations of motion.

    In this paper we higlight the fact that the physical content of hyperbolic theories of relativistic dissipative fluids is, in general, much broader than that of the hyperbolic ones. This is substantiated by presenting an ample range of dissipative fluids whose behavior noticeably departs from Navier-Stokes.

    Surface plasmon polaritons usually exist on a few suitable plasmonic materials; however, nanostructured plasmonic metamaterials allow a much broader range of optical properties to be designed. Here, bottom-up and top-down nanostructuring are combined, creating hyperbolic metamaterial-based photonic crystals termed hyperbolic polaritonic crystals, allowing free-space access to the high spatial frequency modes supported by these metamaterials.

  1. Computing the Gromov hyperbolicity constant of a discrete metric space

    KAUST Repository

    Ismail, Anas

    2012-07-01

    Although it was invented by Mikhail Gromov, in 1987, to describe some family of groups[1], the notion of Gromov hyperbolicity has many applications and interpretations in different fields. It has applications in Biology, Networking, Graph Theory, and many other areas of research. The Gromov hyperbolicity constant of several families of graphs and geometric spaces has been determined. However, so far, the only known algorithm for calculating the Gromov hyperbolicity constant of a discrete metric space is the brute force algorithm with running time O (n4) using the four- point condition. In this thesis, we first introduce an approximation algorithm which calculates a O (log n)-approximation of the hyperbolicity constant , based on a layering approach, in time O (n2), where n is the number of points in the metric space. We also calculate the fixed base point hyperbolicity constant r for a fixed point r using a (max; min)matrix multiplication algorithm by Duan in time O (n2:688) [2]. We use this result to present a 2-approximation algorithm for calculating the hyperbolicity constant in time O (n2:688). We also provide an exact algorithm to compute the hyperbolicity constant in time O (n3:688) for a discrete metric space. We then present some partial results we obtained for designing some approximation algorithms to compute the hyperbolicity constant.

    2013-01-01

    Through detailed analysis of scores of publicly available data sets corresponding to a wide range of large-scale networks, from communication and road networks to various forms of social networks, we explore a little-studied geometric characteristic of real-life networks, namely their hyperbolicity. In smooth geometry, hyperbolicity captures the notion of negative curvature; within the more abstract context of metric spaces, it can be generalized as d-hyperbolicity. This generalized definition can be applied to graphs, which we explore in this report. We provide strong evidence that communication and social networks exhibit this fundamental property, and through extensive computations we quantify the degree of hyperbolicity of each network in comparison to its diameter. By contrast, and as evidence of the validity of the methodology, applying the same methods to the road networks shows that they are not hyperbolic, which is as expected. Finally, we present practical computational means for detection of hyperb...

    The propagation of light in foams creates patterns which are generated due to the reflection and refraction of light. One of these patterns is observed by the formation of multiple mirror images inside liquid bridges in a layer of bubbles in a Hele-Shaw cell. We are presenting the existence of these patterns in foams and their relation with hyperbolic geometry and Sierpinski gaskets using the Poincare disk model. The images obtained from the experiment in foams are compared to the case of hyperbolic optical elements. -- Highlights: → The chaotic scattering of light in foams generating deltoid patterns is based on hyperbolic geometry. → The deltoid patterns are obtained through the Plateau borders in a Hele-Shaw cell. → The Plateau borders act like hyperbolic prism. → Some effects of the refraction and reflection of the light rays were studied using a hyperbolic prism.

  8. Twisted Alexander polynomials of hyperbolic knots

    Dunfield, Nathan M; Jackson, Nicholas

    2011-01-01

    We study a twisted Alexander polynomial naturally associated to a hyperbolic knot in an integer homology 3-sphere via a lift of the holonomy representation to SL(2, C). It is an unambiguous symmetric Laurent polynomial whose coefficients lie in the trace field of the knot. It contains information about genus, fibering, and chirality, and moreover is powerful enough to sometimes detect mutation. We calculated this invariant numerically for all 313,209 hyperbolic knots in S^3 with at most 15 crossings, and found that in all cases it gave a sharp bound on the genus of the knot and determined both fibering and chirality. We also study how such twisted Alexander polynomials vary as one moves around in an irreducible component X_0 of the SL(2, C)-character variety of the knot group. We show how to understand all of these polynomials at once in terms of a polynomial whose coefficients lie in the function field of X_0. We use this to help explain some of the patterns observed for knots in S^3, and explore a potential...

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2001-01-01

    The hyperbolic function method for nonlinear wave equations ispresented. In support of a computer algebra system, many exact solitary wave solutions of a class of nonlinear wave equations are obtained via the method. The method is based on the fact that the solitary wave solutions are essentially of a localized nature. Writing the solitary wave solutions of a nonlinear wave equation as the polynomials of hyperbolic functions, the nonlinear wave equation can be changed into a nonlinear system of algebraic equations. The system can be solved via Wu Elimination or Grbner base method. The exact solitary wave solutions of the nonlinear wave equation are obtained including many new exact solitary wave solutions.

    1996-01-01

    A technique to achieve output tracking for nonminimum phase linear systems with non-hyperbolic and near non-hyperbolic internal dynamics is presented. This approach integrates stable inversion techniques, that achieve exact-tracking, with approximation techniques, that modify the internal dynamics to achieve desirable performance. Such modification of the internal dynamics is used (1) to remove non-hyperbolicity which an obstruction to applying stable inversion techniques and (2) to reduce large pre-actuation time needed to apply stable inversion for near non-hyperbolic cases. The method is applied to an example helicopter hover control problem with near non-hyperbolic internal dynamic for illustrating the trade-off between exact tracking and reduction of pre-actuation time.

    We construct the traveling wave solutions of nonlinear evolution equations (NLEEs) with variable coefficients arising in physics. Some interesting nonlinear evolution equations are investigated by traveling wave solutions which are expressed by the hyperbolic functions, the trigonometric functions and rational functions. The applied method will be used in further works to establish more entirely new solutions for other kinds of such nonlinear evolution equations with variable coefficients arising in physics.

    2017-08-01

    In this paper an experimental method for extensional measurements on medium viscosity fluids in contraction flow is evaluated through numerical simulations and experimental measurements. This measuring technique measures the pressure drop over a hyperbolic contraction, caused by fluid extension and fluid shear, where the extensional component is assumed to dominate. The present evaluative work advances our previous studies on this experimental method by introducing several contraction ratios and addressing different constitutive models of varying shear and extensional response. The constitutive models included are those of the constant viscosity Oldroyd-B and FENE-CR models, and the shear-thinning LPTT model. Examining the results, the impact of shear and first normal stress difference on the measured pressure drop are studied through numerical pressure drop predictions. In addition, stream function patterns are investigated to detect vortex development and influence of contraction ratio. The numerical predictions are further related to experimental measurements for the flow through a 15:1 contraction ratio with three different test fluids. The measured pressure drops are observed to exhibit the same trends as predicted in the numerical simulations, offering close correlation and tight predictive windows for experimental data capture. This result has demonstrated that the hyperbolic contraction flow is well able to detect such elastic fluid properties and that this is matched by numerical predictions in evaluation of their flow response. The hyperbolical contraction flow technique is commended for its distinct benefits: it is straightforward and simple to perform, the Hencky strain can be set by changing contraction ratio, non-homogeneous fluids can be tested, and one can directly determine the degree of elastic fluid behaviour. Based on matching of viscometric extensional viscosity response for FENE-CR and LPTT models, a decline is predicted in pressure drop for

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available In this article, we investigate the nonlinear steady boundary layer flow and heat transfer of an incompressible Tangent Hyperbolic fluid from a sphere. The transformed conservation equations are solved numerically subject to physically appropriate boundary conditions using implicit finite-difference Keller Box technique. The numerical code is validated with previous studies. The influence of a number of emerging non-dimensional parameters, namely Weissenberg number (We, power law index (n, Prandtl number (Pr, Biot number (γ and dimensionless tangential coordinate (ξ on velocity and temperature evolution in the boundary layer regime is examined in detail. Furthermore, the effects of these parameters on heat transfer rate and skin friction are also investigated. Validation with earlier Newtonian studies is presented and excellent correlation is achieved. It is found that the velocity, Skin friction and the Nusselt number (heat transfer rate are decreased with increasing Weissenberg number (We, whereas the temperature is increased. Increasing power law index (n increases the velocity and the Nusselt number (heat transfer rate but decreases the temperature and the Skin friction. An increase in the Biot number (γ is observed to increase velocity, temperature, local skin friction and Nusselt number. The study is relevant to chemical materials processing applications.

  16. Hyperbolic Mild Slope Equations with Inclusion of Amplitude Dispersion Effect: Random Waves

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    New hyperbolic mild slope equations for random waves are developed with the inclusion of amplitude dispersion. The frequency perturbation around the peak frequency of random waves is adopted to extend the equations for regular waves to random waves. The nonlinear effect of amplitude dispersion is incorporated approximately into the model by only considering the nonlinear effect on the carrier waves of random waves, which is done by introducing a representative wave amplitude for the carrier waves. The computation time is greatly saved by the introduction of the representative wave amplitude. The extension of the present model to breaking waves is also considered in order to apply the new equations to surf zone. The model is validated for random waves propagate over a shoal and in surf zone against measurements.

  17. Tunable hyperbolic dispersion and negative refraction in natural electride materials

    Science.gov (United States)

    Guan, Shan; Huang, Shao Ying; Yao, Yugui; Yang, Shengyuan A.

    2017-04-01

    Hyperbolic (or indefinite) materials have attracted significant attention due to their unique capabilities for engineering electromagnetic space and controlling light propagation. A current challenge is to find a hyperbolic material with wide working frequency window, low energy loss, and easy controllability. Here, we propose that naturally existing electride materials could serve as high-performance hyperbolic medium. Taking the electride Ca2N as a concrete example and using first-principles calculations, we show that the material is hyperbolic over a wide frequency window from short-wavelength infrared to near infrared (from about 3.3 μ m to 880 nm). More importantly, it is almost lossless in the window. We clarify the physical origin of these remarkable properties and show its all-angle negative refraction effect. Moreover, we find that the optical properties can be effectively tuned by strain. With moderate strain, the material can even be switched between elliptic and hyperbolic for a particular frequency. Our result points out a new route toward high-performance natural hyperbolic materials, and it offers realistic materials and novel methods to achieve controllable hyperbolic dispersion with great potential for applications.

    2010-01-01

    The Internet infrastructure is severely stressed. Rapidly growing overhead associated with the primary function of the Internet---routing information packets between any two computers in the world---causes concerns among Internet experts that the existing Internet routing architecture may not sustain even another decade; parts of the Internet have started sinking into black holes already. Here we present a method to map the Internet to a hyperbolic space. Guided with the constructed map, which we release with this paper, Internet routing exhibits scaling properties close to theoretically best possible, thus resolving serious scaling limitations that the Internet faces today. Besides this immediate practical viability, our network mapping method can provide a different perspective on the community structure in complex networks.

    Wigderson and Xiao presented an efficient derandomization of the matrix Chernoff bound using the method of pessimistic estimators. Based on their construction, we present a derandomization of the matrix Bernstein inequality which can be viewed as generalization of Spencer's hyperbolic cosine algorithm. We apply our construction to several problems by analyzing its computational efficiency under two special cases of matrix samples; one in which the samples have a group structure and the other in which they have rank-one outer-product structure. As a consequence of the former case, we present a deterministic algorithm that, given the multiplication table of a finite group of size n, constructs an Alon-Roichman expanding Cayley graph of logarithmic degree in O(n^2 log^3 n) time. For the latter case, we present a fast deterministic algorithm for spectral sparsification of positive semi-definite matrices (as defined in [Sri10]) which implies directly an improved deterministic algorithm for spectral graph sparsific...

  20. Variable Lebesgue spaces and hyperbolic systems

    CERN Document Server

    2014-01-01

    This book targets graduate students and researchers who want to learn about Lebesgue spaces and solutions to hyperbolic equations. It is divided into two parts. Part 1 provides an introduction to the theory of variable Lebesgue spaces: Banach function spaces like the classical Lebesgue spaces but with the constant exponent replaced by an exponent function. These spaces arise naturally from the study of partial differential equations and variational integrals with non-standard growth conditions. They have applications to electrorheological fluids in physics and to image reconstruction. After an introduction that sketches history and motivation, the authors develop the function space properties of variable Lebesgue spaces; proofs are modeled on the classical theory. Subsequently, the Hardy-Littlewood maximal operator is discussed. In the last chapter, other operators from harmonic analysis are considered, such as convolution operators and singular integrals. The text is mostly self-contained, with only some mor...

    We study generalized electric/magnetic duality in Abelian gauge theory by combining techniques from locally covariant quantum field theory and Cheeger-Simons differential cohomology on the category of globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifolds. Our approach generalizes previous treatments using the Hamiltonian formalism in a manifestly covariant way and without the assumption of compact Cauchy surfaces. We construct semi-classical configuration spaces and corresponding presymplectic Abelian groups of observables, which are quantized by the CCR-functor to the category of C*-algebras. We demonstrate explicitly how duality is implemented as a natural isomorphism between quantum field theories. We apply this formalism to develop a fully covariant quantum theory of self-dual fields.

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available The subject of the publication concerns the propagation of thermoelastic waves with a particular emphasis on the refraction of waves at the boundary of a layer laying (resting on a halfspace. Analogously to the effect of wave matching, which appears in the case of acoustic and electromagnetic waves, the impedance of a thermoelastic wave has been introduced and its influence and the reflection andrefraction on the boundary at media has been investigated. The model of the medium describes a mutual coupling of mechanical and thermalinteractions with a wave type propagation of heat in media taken into account.[b]Keywords[/b]: hyperbolic thermoelasticity, wave impedance of a thermoelastic medium,refraction and wave matching

    Energy analyzers are important plasma diagnostic tools with applications in a broad range of disciplines including molecular spectroscopy, electron microscopy, basic plasma physics, plasma etching, plasma processing, and ion sputtering technology. The Hyperbolic Field Energy Analyzer (HFEA) is a novel device able to determine ion and electron energy spectra and temperatures. The HFEA is well suited for ion temperature and density diagnostics at those situations where ions are scarce. A simulation of the capacities of the HFEA to discriminate particles of a particular energy level, as well as to determine temperature and density is performed in this work. The electric field due the combination of the conical elements, collimator lens, and Faraday cup applied voltage was computed in a well suited three-dimensional grid. The field is later used to compute the trajectory of a set of particles with a predetermined energy distribution. The results include the observation of the particle trajectories inside the sens...

    Full Text Available Frequency diverse array (FDA with uniform frequency offset (UFO has been in spot light of research for past few years. Not much attention has been devoted to non-UFOs in FDA. This study investigates tangent hyperbolic (TH function for frequency offset selection scheme in circular FDAs (CFDAs. Investigation reveals a three-dimensional single-maximum beampattern, which promises to enhance system detection capability and signal-to-interference plus noise ratio. Furthermore, by utilising the versatility of TH function, a highly configurable type array system is achieved, where beampatterns of three different configurations of FDA can be generated, just by adjusting a single function parameter. This study further examines the utility of the proposed TH-CFDA in some practical radar scenarios.

    Optical forces constitute a fundamental phenomenon important in various fields of science, from astronomy to biology. Generally, intense external radiation sources are required to achieve measurable effects suitable for applications. Here we demonstrate that quantum emitters placed in a homogeneous anisotropic medium induce self-torques, aligning themselves in the well-defined direction determined by an anisotropy, in order to maximize their radiation efficiency. We develop a universal quantum-mechanical theory of self-induced torques acting on an emitter placed in a material environment. The theoretical framework is based on the radiation reaction approach utilizing the rigorous Langevin local quantization of electromagnetic excitations. We show more than 2 orders of magnitude enhancement of the self-torque by an anisotropic metamaterial with hyperbolic dispersion, having negative ratio of permittivity tensor components, in comparison with conventional anisotropic crystals with the highest naturally available anisotropy.

    Transverse spin angular momentum is an inherent feature of evanescent waves which may have applications in nanoscale optomechanics, spintronics, and quantum information technology due to the robust spin-directional coupling. Here we analyze a local spin angular momentum density of hybrid surface waves propagating along anisotropic hyperbolic metasurfaces. We reveal that, in contrast to bulk plane waves and conventional surface plasmons at isotropic interfaces, the spin of the hybrid surface waves can be engineered to have an arbitrary angle with the propagation direction. This property allows to tailor directivity of surface waves via the magnetic control of the spin projection of quantum emitters, and it can be useful for optically controlled spin transfer.

    With the aid of Mathematica, three auxiliary equations, i.e.the Riccati equation, the Lenard equation and the Hyperbolic equation, are employed to investigate traveling wave solutions of a cosh-Gaussian laser beam in both Kerr and cubic quintic nonlinear media. As a result, many traveling wave solutions are obtained, including soliton-like solutions, hyperbolic function solutions and trigonometric function solutions.

    Colangeli, Matteo; Karlin, Iliya V; Kröger, Martin

    2007-05-01

    Inspired by a recent hyperbolic regularization of Burnett's hydrodynamic equations [A. Bobylev, J. Stat. Phys. 124, 371 (2006)], we introduce a method to derive hyperbolic equations of linear hydrodynamics to any desired accuracy in Knudsen number. The approach is based on a dynamic invariance principle which derives exact constitutive relations for the stress tensor and heat flux, and a transformation which renders the exact equations of hydrodynamics hyperbolic and stable. The method is described in detail for a simple kinetic model -- a 13 moment Grad system.

    2007-10-01

    We prove a volume inequality for 3-manifolds having C^{0} metrics ``bent'' along a surface and satisfying certain curvature conditions. The result makes use of Perelman's work on the Ricci flow and geometrization of closed 3-manifolds. Corollaries include a new proof of a conjecture of Bonahon about volumes of convex cores of Kleinian groups, improved volume estimates for certain Haken hyperbolic 3-manifolds, and a lower bound on the minimal volume of orientable hyperbolic 3-manifolds. An appendix compares estimates of volumes of hyperbolic 3-manifolds drilled along a closed embedded geodesic with experimental data.

    Strange hyperbolic attractors are hard to find in real physical systems. This paper provides the first example of a realistic system, a canonical three-dimensional (3D) model of bursting neurons, that is likely to have a strange hyperbolic attractor. Using a geometrical approach to the study...... of the neuron model, we derive a flow-defined Poincare map giving ail accurate account of the system's dynamics. In a parameter region where the neuron system undergoes bifurcations causing transitions between tonic spiking and bursting, this two-dimensional map becomes a map of a disk with several periodic...... holes. A particular case is the map of a disk with three holes, matching the Plykin example of a planar hyperbolic attractor. The corresponding attractor of the 3D neuron model appears to be hyperbolic (this property is not verified in the present paper) and arises as a result of a two-loop (secondary...

  17. Hyperbolicity measures democracy in real-world networks

    Borassi, Michele; Chessa, Alessandro; Caldarelli, Guido

    2015-09-01

    In this work, we analyze the hyperbolicity of real-world networks, a geometric quantity that measures if a space is negatively curved. We provide two improvements in our understanding of this quantity: first of all, in our interpretation, a hyperbolic network is "aristocratic", since few elements "connect" the system, while a non-hyperbolic network has a more "democratic" structure with a larger number of crucial elements. The second contribution is the introduction of the average hyperbolicity of the neighbors of a given node. Through this definition, we outline an "influence area" for the vertices in the graph. We show that in real networks the influence area of the highest degree vertex is small in what we define "local" networks (i.e., social or peer-to-peer networks), and large in "global" networks (i.e., power grid, metabolic networks, or autonomous system networks).

    CERN Document Server

    Wen, Lan

    2016-01-01

    This is a graduate text in differentiable dynamical systems. It focuses on structural stability and hyperbolicity, a topic that is central to the field. Starting with the basic concepts of dynamical systems, analyzing the historic systems of the Smale horseshoe, Anosov toral automorphisms, and the solenoid attractor, the book develops the hyperbolic theory first for hyperbolic fixed points and then for general hyperbolic sets. The problems of stable manifolds, structural stability, and shadowing property are investigated, which lead to a highlight of the book, the \\Omega-stability theorem of Smale. While the content is rather standard, a key objective of the book is to present a thorough treatment for some tough material that has remained an obstacle to teaching and learning the subject matter. The treatment is straightforward and hence could be particularly suitable for self-study. Selected solutions are available electronically for instructors only.

    The integration of the Einstein equations split into the solution of constraints on an initial space like 3 - manifold, an essentially elliptic system, and a system which will describe the dynamical evolution, modulo a choice of gauge. We prove in this paper that the simplest gauge choice leads to a system which is causal, but hyperbolic non strict in the sense of Leray - Ohya. We review some strictly hyperbolic systems obtained recently.

First, we assume the exponential potential and then consider hyperbolic cosine type potential. In both cases, we obtain behavior of the Hubble, deceleration and EoS parameters. Comparison with observational data suggest the model with hyperbolic cosine type scalar field potentials has good model to describe universe.

    One of the main differences between parabolic transport, associated with Langevin equations driven by Wiener processes, and hyperbolic models related to generalized Kac equations driven by Poisson processes, is the occurrence in the latter of multiple stable invariant densities (Frobenius multiplicity) in certain regions of the parameter space. This phenomenon is associated with the occurrence in linear hyperbolic balance equations of a typical bifurcation, referred to as the ergodicity-breaking bifurcation, the properties of which are thoroughly analyzed.

  13. On the stability of weakly hyperbolic invariant sets

    Science.gov (United States)

    Begun, N. A.; Pliss, V. A.; Sell, G. R.

    2017-02-01

    The dynamical object which we study is a compact invariant set with a suitable hyperbolic structure. Stability of weakly hyperbolic sets was studied by V. A. Pliss and G. R. Sell (see [1,2]). They assumed that the neutral, unstable and stable linear spaces of the corresponding linearized systems satisfy Lipschitz condition. They showed that if a perturbation is small, then the perturbed system has a weakly hyperbolic set KY, which is homeomorphic to the weakly hyperbolic set K of the initial system, close to K, and the dynamics on KY is close to the dynamics on K. At the same time, it is known that the Lipschitz property is too strong in the sense that the set of systems without this property is generic. Hence, there was a need to introduce new methods of studying stability of weakly hyperbolic sets without Lipschitz condition. These new methods appeared in [16-20]. They were based on the local coordinates introduced in [18] and the continuous on the whole weakly hyperbolic set coordinates introduced in [19]. In this paper we will show that even without Lipschitz condition there exists a continuous mapping h such that h (K) =KY.

    Uniaxial materials whose axial and tangential permittivities have opposite signs are referred to as indefinite or hyperbolic media. While hyperbolic responses are normally achieved with metamaterials, hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) naturally possesses this property due to the anisotropic phonons in the mid-infrared. Using scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy, we studied polaritonic phenomena in hBN. We performed infrared nano-imaging of highly confined and low-loss hyperbolic phonon polaritons in hBN. The polariton wavelength was shown to be governed by the hBN thickness according to a linear law persisting down to few atomic layers [1]. Additionally, we carried out the modification of hyperbolic response in meta-structures comprised of a mononlayer graphene deposited on hBN [2]. Electrostatic gating of the top graphene layer allows for the modification of wavelength and intensity of hyperbolic phonon polaritons in bulk hBN. The physics of the modification originates from the plasmon-phonon coupling in the hyperbolic medium. Furthermore, we demonstrated the "hyperlens" for subdiffractional focusing and imaging using a slab of hBN [3]. References [1] S. Dai et al., Science, 343, 1125 (2014). [2] S.

  15. Hyperbole, abstract motion and spatial knowledge: sequential versus simultaneous scanning.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Catricalà, Maria; Guidi, Annarita

    2012-08-01

    Hyperbole is an interesting trope in the perspective of Space Grammar, since it is related to the displacing of a limit (Lausberg in Elemente der literarischen Rhetorik. M.H. Verlag, Munchen 1967; see the Ancient Greek meaning 'to throw over' > 'exaggerate'). Hyperbole semantic mechanisms are related to virtual scanning (Holmqvist and Płuciennik in Imagery in language. Peter Lang, Frankfurt am Main, pp 777-785, 2004). Basic concepts of SIZE and QUANTITY, related image-schemas (IS) and conceptual metaphors (UP IS MORE; IMPORTANT IS BIG: Lakoff 1987, Johnson 1987) are implied in hyperbole processing. The virtual scanning is the simulation of a perceptual domain (here, the vertically oriented space). The virtual limit is defined by expected values on the relevant scale. Since hyperbole is a form of intensification, its linguistic interest lies in cases involving the extremes of a scale, for which a limit can be determined (Schemann 1994). In this experimental study, we analyze the concept of 'limit' in terms of 'abstract motion' and 'oriented space' domains (Langacker 1990) with respect to hyperboles expressed by Italian Verbs of movement. The IS considered are PATH and SOURCE-PATH-GOAL. The latter corresponds to a virtual scale whose limit is arrived at, or overcome, in hyperboles.

  16. Hyperbolic billiards of pure D=4 supergravities

    CERN Document Server

    Henneaux, M; Henneaux, Marc; Julia, Bernard

    2003-01-01

    We compute the billiards that emerge in the Belinskii-Khalatnikov-Lifshitz (BKL) limit for all pure supergravities in D=4 spacetime dimensions, as well as for D=4, N=4 supergravities coupled to k (N=4) Maxwell supermultiplets. We find that just as for the cases N=0 and N=8 investigated previously, these billiards can be identified with the fundamental Weyl chambers of hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebras. Hence, the dynamics is chaotic in the BKL limit. A new feature arises, however, which is that the relevant Kac-Moody algebra can be the Lorentzian extension of a twisted affine Kac-Moody algebra, while the N=0 and N=8 cases are untwisted. This occurs for N=5, N=3 and N=2. An understanding of this property is provided by showing that the data relevant for determining the billiards are the restricted root system and the maximal split subalgebra of the finite-dimensional real symmetry algebra characterizing the toroidal reduction to D=3 spacetime dimensions. To summarize: split symmetry controls chaos.

  17. Displaced orbits generated by solar sails for the hyperbolic and degenerated cases

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Ming Xu; Shi-Jie Xu

    2012-01-01

    Displaced non-Keplerian orbits above planetary bodies can be achieved by orientating the solar sail normal to the sun line.The dynamical systems techniques are employed to analyze the nonlinear dynamics of a displaced orbit and different topologies of equilibria are yielded from the basic configurations of Hill's region,which have a saddlenode bifurcation point at the degenerated case.The solar sail near hyperbolic or degenerated equilibrium is quite unstable.Therefore,a controller preserving Hamiltonian structure is presented to stabilize the solar sail near hyperbolic or degenerated equilibrium,and to generate the stable Lissajous orbits that stay stable inside the stabilizing region of the controller.The main contribution of this paper is that the controller preserving Hamiltonian structure not only changes the instability of the equilibrium,but also makes the modified elliptic equilibrium become unique for the controlled system.The allocation law of the controller on the sail's attitude and lightness number is obtained,which verifies that the controller is realizable.

    Fetecau, Razvan C; Eftimie, Raluca

    2010-10-01

    In this article, we introduce and study a new nonlocal hyperbolic model for the formation and movement of animal aggregations. We assume that the nonlocal attractive, repulsive, and alignment interactions between individuals can influence both the speed and the turning rates of group members. We use analytical and numerical techniques to investigate the effect of these nonlocal interactions on the long-time behavior of the patterns exhibited by the model. We establish the local existence and uniqueness and show that the nonlinear hyperbolic system does not develop shock solutions (gradient blow-up). Depending on the relative magnitudes of attraction and repulsion, we show that the solutions of the model either exist globally in time or may exhibit finite-time amplitude blow-up. We illustrate numerically the various patterns displayed by the model: dispersive aggregations, finite-size groups and blow-up patterns, the latter corresponding to aggregations which may collapse to a point. The transition from finite-size to blow-up patterns is governed by the magnitude of the social interactions and the random turning rates. The presence of these types of patterns and the absence of shocks are consequences of the biologically relevant assumptions regarding the form of the speed and the turning rate functions, as well as of the kernels describing the social interactions.

    In the current study, sway of nanofluid on peristaltic transport of a hyperbolic tangent fluid model in the incidence of tending magnetic field has been argued. The governing equations of a nanofluid are first modeled and then simplified under lubrication approach. The coupled nonlinear equations of temperature and nano particle volume fraction are solved analytically using a homotopy perturbation technique. The analytical solution of the stream function and pressure gradient are carried out using perturbation technique.

    Dipole–dipole interactions, which govern phenomena such as cooperative Lamb shifts, superradiant decay rates, Van der Waals forces and resonance energy transfer rates, are conventionally limited to the Coulombic near-field. Here we reveal a class of real-photon and virtual-photon long-range quantum electrodynamic interactions that have a singularity in media with hyperbolic dispersion. The singularity in the dipole–dipole coupling, referred to as a super-Coulombic interaction, is a result of an effective interaction distance that goes to zero in the ideal limit irrespective of the physical distance. We investigate the entire landscape of atom–atom interactions in hyperbolic media confirming the giant long-range enhancement. We also propose multiple experimental platforms to verify our predicted effect with phonon–polaritonic hexagonal boron nitride, plasmonic super-lattices and hyperbolic meta-surfaces as well. Our work paves the way for the control of cold atoms above hyperbolic meta-surfaces and the study of many-body physics with hyperbolic media. PMID:28120826

    To improve the hyperbolic mapping methods both in terms of accuracy and running time, a novel mapping method called Community and Hyperbolic Mapping (CHM) is proposed based on community information in this paper. Firstly, an index called Community Intimacy (CI) is presented to measure the adjacency relationship between the communities, based on which a community ordering algorithm is introduced. According to the proposed Community-Sector hypothesis, which supposes that most nodes of one community gather in a same sector in hyperbolic space, CHM maps the ordered communities into hyperbolic space, and then the angular coordinates of nodes are randomly initialized within the sector that they belong to. Therefore, all the network nodes are so far mapped to hyperbolic space, and then the initialized angular coordinates can be optimized by employing the information of all nodes, which can greatly improve the algorithm precision. By applying the proposed dual-layer angle sampling method in the optimization procedure, CHM reduces the time complexity to O(n2) . The experiments show that our algorithm outperforms the state-of-the-art methods.

    We analyze the hyperbolicity of real-world networks, a geometric quantity that measures if a space is negatively curved. In our interpretation, a network with small hyperbolicity is "aristocratic", because it contains a small set of vertices involved in many shortest paths, so that few elements "connect" the systems, while a network with large hyperbolicity has a more "democratic" structure with a larger number of crucial elements. We prove mathematically the soundness of this interpretation, and we derive its consequences by analyzing a large dataset of real-world networks. We confirm and improve previous results on hyperbolicity, and we analyze them in the light of our interpretation. Moreover, we study (for the first time in our knowledge) the hyperbolicity of the neighborhood of a given vertex. This allows to define an "influence area" for the vertices in the graph. We show that the influence area of the highest degree vertex is small in what we define "local" networks, like most social or peer-to-peer ne...

  4. Computing the Gromov hyperbolicity of a discrete metric space

    We give exact and approximation algorithms for computing the Gromov hyperbolicity of an n-point discrete metric space. We observe that computing the Gromov hyperbolicity from a fixed base-point reduces to a (max,min) matrix product. Hence, using the (max,min) matrix product algorithm by Duan and Pettie, the fixed base-point hyperbolicity can be determined in O(n2.69) time. It follows that the Gromov hyperbolicity can be computed in O(n3.69) time, and a 2-approximation can be found in O(n2.69) time. We also give a (2log2⁡n)-approximation algorithm that runs in O(n2) time, based on a tree-metric embedding by Gromov. We also show that hyperbolicity at a fixed base-point cannot be computed in O(n2.05) time, unless there exists a faster algorithm for (max,min) matrix multiplication than currently known.

  5. On a method for constructing the Lax pairs for nonlinear integrable equations

    2016-01-01

    We suggest a direct algorithm for searching the Lax pairs for nonlinear integrable equations. It is effective for both continuous and discrete models. The first operator of the Lax pair corresponding to a given nonlinear equation is found immediately, coinciding with the linearization of the considered nonlinear equation. The second one is obtained as an invariant manifold to the linearized equation. A surprisingly simple relation between the second operator of the Lax pair and the recursion operator is discussed: the recursion operator can immediately be found from the Lax pair. Examples considered in the article are convincing evidence that the found Lax pairs differ from the classical ones. The examples also show that the suggested objects are true Lax pairs which allow the construction of infinite series of conservation laws and hierarchies of higher symmetries. In the case of the hyperbolic type partial differential equation our algorithm is slightly modified; in order to construct the Lax pairs from the invariant manifolds we use the cutting off conditions for the corresponding infinite Laplace sequence. The efficiency of the method is illustrated by application to some equations given in the Svinolupov-Sokolov classification list for which the Lax pairs and the recursion operators have not been found earlier.

    This attempt predicts the hydromagnetic flow of a tangent hyperbolic nanofluid originated by a non-linear impermeable stretching surface. The considered nanofluid model takes into account the Brownian diffusion and thermophoresis characteristics. An incompressible liquid is electrically conducted in the presence of a non-uniformly applied magnetic field. Heat and mass transfer phenomena posses flux conditions. Mathematical formulation is developed by utilizing the boundary layer approach. A system of ordinary differential equations is obtained by employing adequate variables. Convergence for obtained series solutions is checked and explicitly verified through tables and plots. Effects of numerous pertinent variables on velocity, temperature and concentration fields are addressed. Computations for surface drag coefficient, heat transfer rate and mass transfer rate are presented and inspected for the influence of involved variables. Temperature is found to enhance for a higher magnetic variable. Present and previous outcomes in limiting sense are also compared.

    The objective of present paper is to examine the thermal radiation effects in the two-dimensional mixed convection flow of a tangent hyperbolic fluid near a stagnation point. The analysis is performed in the presence of heat generation/absorption and chemical reaction. Convective boundary conditions for heat and mass transfer are employed. The resulting partial differential equations are reduced into nonlinear ordinary differential equations using appropriate transformations. Series solutions of momentum, energy and concentration equations are computed. The characteristics of various physical parameters on the distributions of velocity, temperature and concentration are analyzed graphically. Numerical values of skin friction coefficient, local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are computed and examined. It is observed that larger values of thermal and concentration Biot numbers enhance the temperature and concentration distributions.

  8. Observer-Based Bilinear Control of First-Order Hyperbolic PDEs: Application to the Solar Collector

    KAUST Repository

    Mechhoud, Sarra

    2015-12-18

    In this paper, we investigate the problem of bilinear control of a solar collector plant using the available boundary and solar irradiance measurements. The solar collector is described by a first-order 1D hyperbolic partial differential equation where the pump volumetric flow rate acts as the plant control input. By combining a boundary state observer and an internal energy-based control law, a nonlinear observer based feedback controller is proposed. With a feed-forward control term, the effect of the solar radiation is cancelled. Using the Lyapunov approach we prove that the proposed control guarantees the global exponential stability of both the plant and the tracking error. Simulation results are provided to illustrate the performance of the proposed method.

    We review recent work on the stability of flat spatially homogeneous and isotropic backgrounds with a self-interacting scalar field. We derive a first order quasi-linear symmetric hyperbolic system for the Einstein-nonlinear-scalar field system. Then, using the linearized system, we show how to obtain necessary and sufficient conditions which ensure the exponential decay to zero of small non-linear perturbations.

  12. On Applications of a Generalized Hyperbolic Measure of Entropy

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available After generalization of Shannon‘s entropy measure by Renyi in 1961, many generalized versions of Shannon measure were proposed by different authors. Shannon measure can be obtained from these generalized measures asymptotically. A natural question arises in the parametric generalization of Shannon‘s entropy measure. What is the role of the parameter(s from application point of view? In the present communication, super additivity and fast scalability of generalized hyperbolic measure [Bhatia and Singh, 2013] of probabilistic entropy as compared to some classical measures of entropy has been shown. Application of a generalized hyperbolic measure of probabilistic entropy in certain situations has been discussed. Also, application of generalized hyperbolic measure of fuzzy entropy in multi attribute decision making have been presented where the parameter affects the preference order.

  13. Output regulation problem for a class of regular hyperbolic systems

    2016-01-01

    This paper investigates the output regulation problem for a class of regular first-order hyperbolic partial differential equation (PDE) systems. A state feedback and an error feedback regulator are considered to force the output of the hyperbolic PDE plant to track a periodic reference trajectory generated by a neutrally stable exosystem. A new explanation is given to extend the results in the literature to solve the regulation problem associated with the first-order hyperbolic PDE systems. Moreover, in order to provide the closed-loop stability condition for the solvability of the regulator problems, the design of stabilising feedback gain and its dual problem design of stabilising output injection gain are considered in this paper. This paper develops an easy method to obtain an adjustable stabilising feedback gain and stabilising output injection gain with the aid of the operator Riccati equation.

  14. Hyperbolic Metamaterials and Coupled Surface Plasmon Polaritons: comparative analysis

    CERN Document Server

    2016-01-01

    We investigate the optical properties of sub-wavelength layered metal/dielectric structures, also known as hyperbolic metamaterials (HMMs), using exact analytical Kronig Penney (KP) model. We show that hyperbolic isofrequency surfaces exist for all combinations of layer permittivities and thicknesses, and the largest Purcell enhancements (PE) of spontaneous radiation are achieved away from the nominally hyperbolic region. Detailed comparison of field distributions, dispersion curves, and Purcell factors (PF) between the HMMs and Surface Plasmon Polaritons (SPPs) guided modes in metal/dielectric waveguides demonstrates that HMMs are nothing but weakly coupled gap or slab SPPs modes. Broadband PE is not specific to the HMMs and can be easily attained in single thin metallic layers. Furthermore, large wavevectors and PE are always combined with high loss, short propagation distances and large impedances; hence PE in HMMs is essentially a direct coupling of the energy into the free electron motion in the metal, o...

    The objective of this paper is to present experimental evidence of the wave nature of heat propagation in processed meat and to demonstrate that the hyperbolic heat conduction model is an accurate representation, on a macroscopic level, of the heat conduction process in such biological material. The value of the characteristic thermal time of a specific material, processed bologna meat, is determined experimentally. As a part of the work different thermophysical properties are also measured. The measured temperature distributions in the samples are compared with the Fourier results and significant deviation between the two is observed, especially during the initial stages of the transient conduction process. The measured values are found to match the theoretical non-Fourier hyperbolic predictions very well. The superposition of waves occurring inside the meat sample due to the hyperbolic nature of heat conduction is also proved experimentally. 14 refs., 7 figs., 2 tabs.

    Let $1→(K, K_1)→(G, N_G(K_1))→(\\mathcal{Q}, \\mathcal{Q}_1)→ 1$ be a short exact sequence of pairs of finitely generated groups with 1 a proper non-trivial subgroup of and strongly hyperbolic relative to $K_1$. Assuming that, for all $g\\in G$, there exists $k_g\\in K$ such that $gK_1g^{-1}=k_gK_1k^{-1}_g$, we will prove that there exists a quasi-isometric section $s:\\mathcal{Q}→ G$. Further, we will prove that if is strongly hyperbolic relative to the normalizer subgroup $N_G(K_1)$ and weakly hyperbolic relative to $K_1$, then there exists a Cannon–Thurston map for the inclusion $i:_K→_G$.

  17. Hyperbolic value addition and general models of animal choice.

    2001-01-01

    Three mathematical models of choice--the contextual-choice model (R. Grace, 1994), delay-reduction theory (N. Squires & E. Fantino, 1971), and a new model called the hyperbolic value-added model--were compared in their ability to predict the results from a wide variety of experiments with animal subjects. When supplied with 2 or 3 free parameters, all 3 models made fairly accurate predictions for a large set of experiments that used concurrent-chain procedures. One advantage of the hyperbolic value-added model is that it is derived from a simpler model that makes accurate predictions for many experiments using discrete-trial adjusting-delay procedures. Some results favor the hyperbolic value-added model and delay-reduction theory over the contextual-choice model, but more data are needed from choice situations for which the models make distinctly different predictions.

    The $\\log 3$ Theorem, proved by Culler and Shalen, states that every point in the hyperbolic 3-space is moved a distance at least $\\log 3$ by one of the non-commuting isometries $\\xi$ or $\\eta$ provided that $\\xi$ and $\\eta$ generate a torsion-free, discrete group which is not co-compact and contains no parabolic. This theorem lies in the foundation of many techniques that provide lower estimates for the volumes of orientable, closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds whose fundamental group has no 2-generator subgroup of finite index and, as a consequence, gives insights into the topological properties of these manifolds. In this paper, we show that every point in the hyperbolic 3-space is moved a distance at least $(1/2)\\log(5+3\\sqrt{2})$ by one of the isometries in $\\{\\xi,\\eta,\\xi\\eta\\}$ when $\\xi$ and $\\eta$ satisfy the conditions given in the $\\log 3$ Theorem.

    2014-10-01

    We investigate the behavior of five hyperbolic reaction-diffusion equations most commonly employed to describe systems of interacting organisms or reacting particles where dispersal displays inertia. We first discuss the macroscopic or mesoscopic foundation, or lack thereof, of these reaction-transport equations. This is followed by an analysis of the temporal evolution of spatially uniform states. In particular, we determine the uniform steady states of the reaction-transport systems and their stability properties. We then address the spatiotemporal behavior of pure death processes. We end with a unified treatment of the front speed for hyperbolic reaction-diffusion equations with Kolmogorov-Petrosvskii-Piskunov kinetics. In particular, we obtain an exact expression for the front speed of a general class of reaction correlated random walk systems. Our results establish that three out of the five hyperbolic reaction-transport equations provide physically acceptable models of biological and chemical systems.

  20. BTZ extensions of globally hyperbolic singular flat spacetimes

    2016-01-01

    Minkowski space is the local model of 3 dimensionnal flat spacetimes. Recent progress in the description of globally hyperbolic flat spacetimes showed strong link between Lorentzian geometry and Teichm{\\"u}ller space. We notice that Lorentzian generalisations of conical singularities are useful for the endeavours of descripting flat spacetimes, creating stronger links with hyperbolic geometry and compactifying spacetimes. In particular massive particles and extreme BTZ singular lines arise naturally. This paper is three-fold. First, prove background local properties which will be useful for future work. Second, generalise fundamental theorems of the theory of globally hyperbolic flat spacetimes. Third, defining BTZ-extension and proving it preserves Cauchy-maximality and Cauchy-completeness.
