Abstract: Vaccine-induced protection is substantial to control, prevent, and reduce the spread of infectious diseases and to get rid of infectious diseases. In this paper, we propose an SVEIR epidemic model with age-dependent vaccination, latency, and infection. The model also considers that the waning vaccine-induced immunity depends on vaccination age and the vaccinated individuals fall back to the susceptible class after losing immunity. The model is a coupled system of (hyperbolic) partial differential equations with ordinary differential equations. The global dynamics of the model is established through construction of appropriate Lyapunov functionals and application of Lasalle’s invariance principle. As a result, the global stability of the infection-free equilibrium and endemic equilibrium is obtained and is fully determined by the basic reproduction number .

The operator is neither required to be defined everywhere nor required to be pseudomonotone type. The results are applied to prove existence of solution for nonlinear variational inequality problems.

Abstract: We introduce a new iterative method called D-iteration to approximate a fixed point of continuous nondecreasing functions on arbitrary closed intervals. The purpose is to improve the rate of convergence compared to previous work. Specifically, our main result shows that D-iteration converges faster than P-iteration and SP-iteration to the fixed point. Consequently, we have that D-iteration converges faster than the others under the same computational cost. Moreover, the analogue of their convergence theorem holds for D-iteration.

Abstract: We give a scheme of approximation of the MK problem based on the symmetries of the underlying spaces. We take a Haar type MRA constructed according to the geometry of our spaces. Thus, applying the Haar type MRA based on symmetries to the MK problem, we obtain a sequence of transportation problem that approximates the original MK problem for each of MRA. Moreover, the optimal solutions of each level solution converge in the weak sense to the optimal solution of original problem. PubDate: Sun, 03 Jun 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: An efficient iteration method is introduced and used for solving a type of system of nonlinear Volterra integro-differential equations. The scheme is based on a combination of the spectral collocation technique and the parametric iteration method. This method is easy to implement and requires no tedious computational work.

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to study various properties of Mittag-Leffler (M-L) function. Here we establish two theorems which give the image of this M-L function under the generalized fractional integral operators involving Fox’s -function as kernel. Corresponding assertions in terms of Euler, Mellin, Laplace, Whittaker, and -transforms are also presented. On account of general nature of M-L function a number of results involving special functions can be obtained merely by giving particular values for the parameters.

Abstract: By a rotational system, we mean a closed subset of the circle, , together with a continuous transformation with the requirements that the dynamical system be minimal and that respect the standard orientation of . We show that infinite rotational systems , with the property that map has finite preimages, are extensions of irrational rotations of the circle. Such systems have been studied when they arise as invariant subsets of certain specific mappings, . Because our main result makes no explicit mention of a global transformation on , we show that such a structure theorem holds for rotational systems that arise as invariant sets of any continuous transformation with finite preimages. In particular, there are no explicit conditions on the degree of . We then give a development of known results in the case where for an integer . The paper concludes with a construction of infinite rotational sets for mappings of the unit circle of degree larger than one whose lift to the universal cover is monotonic.

Abstract: There are many industrial and biological reaction diffusion systems which involve the time-varying features where certain parameters of the system change during the process. A part of the transport-reaction phenomena is often modelled as an abstract nonautonomous equation generated by a (generalized) Riesz-spectral operator on a Hilbert space. The basic problems related to the equations are existence of solutions of the equations and how to control dynamical behaviour of the equations. In contrast to the autonomous control problems, theory of controllability and observability for the nonautonomous systems is less well established. In this paper, we consider some relevant aspects regarding the controllability and observability for the nonautonomous Riesz-spectral systems including the Sturm-Liouville systems using a -quasi-semigroup approach. Three examples are provided. The first is related to sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions and the others are to confirm the approximate controllability and observability of the nonautonomous Riesz-spectral systems and Sturm-Liouville systems, respectively.

Abstract: Multiple stochastic integrals of higher multiplicity cannot always be expressed in terms of simpler stochastic integrals, especially when the Wiener process is multidimensional. In this paper we describe how the Fourier series expansion of Wiener process can be used to simulate a two-dimensional stochastic differential equation (SDE) using Matlab program. Our numerical experiments use Matlab to show how our truncation of Itô’-Taylor expansion at an appropriate point produces Milstein method for the SDE. PubDate: Thu, 10 May 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: The Riemann solutions of a deposition model are shown. A singular flux-function limit of the obtained Riemann solutions is considered. As a result, it is shown that the Riemann solutions of the deposition model just converge to the Riemann solutions of the limit system, the scalar conservation law with a linear flux function involving discontinuous coefficient. Especially, for some initial data, the two-shock Riemann solution of the deposition model tends to the delta-shock Riemann solution of the limit system; by contrast, for some initial data, the two-rarefaction-wave Riemann solution of the deposition model tends to the vacuum Riemann solution of the limit system. Some numerical results exhibiting the formation processes of delta-shocks and vacuum states are presented. PubDate: Tue, 08 May 2018 09:06:18 +000

Abstract: We show that the geometric and PH-preserving properties of the Enneper surface allow us to find PH interpolants for all regular Hermite data-sets. Each such data-set is satisfied by two scaled Enneper surfaces, and we can obtain four interpolants on each surface. Examples of these interpolants were found to be better, in terms of bending energy and arc-length, than those obtained using a previous PH-preserving mapping. PubDate: Tue, 08 May 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: In recent years, the two-dimensional (2D) quaternion Fourier and quaternion linear canonical transforms have been the focus of many research papers. In the present paper, based on the relationship between the quaternion Fourier transform (QFT) and the quaternion linear canonical transform (QLCT), we derive a version of the uncertainty principle associated with the QLCT. We also discuss the generalization of the Hausdorff-Young inequality in the QLCT domain. PubDate: Mon, 07 May 2018 06:13:57 +000

Abstract: We consider convergence acceleration of the modified Fourier expansions by rational trigonometric corrections which lead to modified-trigonometric-rational approximations. The rational corrections contain some unknown parameters and determination of their optimal values for improved pointwise convergence is the main goal of this paper. The goal was accomplished by deriving the exact constants of the asymptotic errors of the approximations with further elimination of the corresponding main terms by appropriate selection of those parameters. Numerical experiments outline the convergence improvement of the optimal rational approximations compared to the expansions by the modified Fourier basis. PubDate: Sun, 01 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: Air pollutant levels in Bangkok are generally high in street tunnels. They are particularly elevated in almost closed street tunnels such as an area under the Bangkok sky train platform with high traffic volume where dispersion is limited. There are no air quality measurement stations in the vicinity, while the human population is high. In this research, the numerical simulation is used to measure the air pollutant levels. The three-dimensional air pollution measurement model in a heavy traffic area under the Bangkok sky train platform is proposed. The finite difference techniques are employed to approximate the modelled solutions. The vehicle air pollutant emission due to the high traffic volume is mathematically assumed by the pollutant sources term. The simulation is also considered in averaged and moving pollutant sources due to manner vehicle emission. The proposed approximated air pollutant concentration indicators can be replaced by user required gaseous pollutants indices such as NOx, SO2, CO, and PM2.5. PubDate: Mon, 05 Mar 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: The one-dimensional advection-diffusion-reaction equation is a mathematical model describing transport and diffusion problems such as pollutants and suspended matter in a stream or canal. If the pollutant concentration at the discharge point is not uniform, then numerical methods and data analysis techniques were introduced. In this research, a numerical simulation of the one-dimensional water-quality model in a stream is proposed. The governing equation is advection-diffusion-reaction equation with nonuniform boundary condition functions. The approximated pollutant concentrations are obtained by a Saulyev finite difference technique. The boundary condition functions due to nonuniform pollutant concentrations at the discharge point are defined by the quadratic interpolation technique. The approximated solutions to the model are verified by a comparison with the analytical solution. The proposed numerical technique worked very well to give dependable and accurate solutions to these kinds of several real-world applications. PubDate: Thu, 01 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +000

Abstract: We characterize the existence of (weak) Pareto optimal solutions to the classical multiobjective optimization problem by referring to the naturally associated preorders and their finite (Richter-Peleg) multiutility representation. The case of a compact design space is appropriately considered by using results concerning the existence of maximal elements of preorders. The possibility of reformulating the multiobjective optimization problem for determining the weak Pareto optimal solutions by means of a scalarization procedure is finally characterized.
