Authors:Philippe Rambour Pages: 159 - 178 Abstract: Abstract Using previous results we propose an asymptotic expression of the coefficients of the orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle with respect to a weight of type \(f_{\alpha _{1},\ldots ,\alpha _{M},\, \theta _{1},\ldots ,\theta _{M}}\) defined by \({ \theta \mapsto \prod \nolimits _{1\le j \le M} \vert 1 - e^{i(\theta -\theta _{j})}\vert ^{2\alpha _{j}} c}\) with \(\theta _{j}\in ]-\pi ,\pi ]\) , \(\theta _{i}\ne \theta _{j}\) , and \(-\frac{1}{2} < \alpha _{j}<\frac{1}{2}\) and c a sufficiently smooth regular function. As a corollary we give an asymptotic expansion of the entries of \(T_{N}^{-1}\big ( f_{\alpha _{1},\ldots ,\alpha _{M},\theta _{1},\ldots ,\theta _{M},\, \theta _{1},\ldots ,\theta _{M}}\big )\) for \(\max ( \alpha _{1},\ldots ,\alpha _{M})\in ]0, \frac{1}{2}[\) .

Authors:Binayak S. Choudhury; Samir Kumar Bhandari; Parbati Saha Pages: 179 - 189 Abstract: Abstract Cyclic contractions have received attention especially due to their uses in problems of global optimizations. In this paper we consider p-cyclic maps in 2-Menger spaces which are cyclic mappings between p-number of subsets of the space. We establish a fixed point result for these maps under the assumption of an inequality which is Kannan type and involves two control functions. Our results extends a previous results and is illustrated with an example. PubDate: 2017-06-01 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-016-0073-1 Issue No:Vol. 10, No. 2 (2017)

Authors:Andrea Cancedda Pages: 199 - 222 Abstract: Abstract We consider a Neumann–Robin spectral problem in a perforated domain \(\Omega _{\varepsilon }\) . By homogenization techniques we find the suitable homogenized problem and we discuss the asymptotics of eigenpairs, as the size of the perforation tends to zero. Our results involve an approach based on Višík lemma and the Mosco convergence of eigenspaces. We prove that eigenpairs of our problem converge to eigenpairs of the homogenized problem with rate \(\sqrt{\varepsilon }\) .

We investigate many properties of these modules. We characterize \(\xi \) -torsion modules and \(\xi \) -torsion-free modules using short exact sequences and module homomorphisms.

Authors:Michel Artola Pages: 241 - 269 Abstract: Abstract Methods developed by Lions and Peetre (Pub Math de l’IHES 19:5–68, 1964) are used to extend results derived in Artola (Bolletino UMI (9) V:125–158, 2012) for traces of weighted spaces. The weights are required to belong to the Hardy class H(p) defined in Artola (Bolletino UMI (9) V:125–158, 2012) to ensure that a necessary convolution product remains valid in weighted spaces. The restriction, apparently new, is necessary for the present treatment. PubDate: 2017-06-01 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-016-0079-8 Issue No:Vol. 10, No. 2 (2017)

Authors:M. Mursaleen; Md. Nasiruzzaman Pages: 271 - 289 Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we apply (p, q)-calculus to construct generalized bivariate Bleimann–Butzer–Hahn operators based on (p, q)-integers and obtain Korovkin type approximation theorem. Furthermore, we compute the rate of convergence for these operators by using the modulus of continuity and Lipschitz type maximal function.

Authors:Henrique F. de Lima; Fábio R. dos Santos; Jogli G. Araújo; Marco Antonio L. Velásquez Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we establish a criterion of parabolicity for complete two-sided hypersurfaces immersed in a Riemannian warped product of the type \(I\times _fM^n\) , where \(M^{n}\) is a connected n-dimensional oriented Riemannian manifold and \(f:I\rightarrow \mathbb {R}\) is a positive smooth function. As applications, we obtain several uniqueness results concerning these hypersurfaces with constant mean curvature, under standard constraints on the Ricci curvature of \(M^n\) and on the warping function f. Moreover, considering the higher order mean curvatures, we also obtain estimates for the index of relative nullity. PubDate: 2017-07-25 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0138-9

Authors:Sayed Saber Abstract: Abstract Let X be a Stein manifold of dimension \(n \ge 3\) . Let \(\Omega _{1}\) be a weakly q-convex and \(\Omega _{2}\) be a weakly \((n-q-1)\) -convex in X with smooth boundaries such that \(\overline{\Omega }_{2}\Subset \Omega _{1}\Subset X\) . Assume that \(\Omega =\Omega _{1}\backslash \overline{\Omega }_{2}\) . In this paper, we establish sufficient conditions for the closed range of \(\overline{\partial }\) on \(\Omega \) . Moreover, we study the global boundary regularity of the \(\overline{\partial }\) -problem on \(\Omega \) . PubDate: 2017-07-20 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0135-z

Authors:Pietro Caputo; Fabio Martinelli; Fabio Lucio Toninelli Abstract: Abstract We consider the \((2+1)\) -dimensional generalized solid-on-solid (SOS) model, that is the random discrete surface with a gradient potential of the form \( \nabla \phi ^{p}\) , where \(p\in [1,+\infty ]\) . We show that at low temperature, for a square region \(\Lambda \) with side L, both under the infinite volume measure and under the measure with zero boundary conditions around \(\Lambda \) , the probability that the surface is nonnegative in \(\Lambda \) behaves like \(\exp (-4\beta \tau _{p,\beta } L H_p(L) )\) , where \(\beta \) is the inverse temperature, \(\tau _{p,\beta }\) is the surface tension at zero tilt, or step free energy, and \(H_p(L)\) is the entropic repulsion height, that is the typical height of the field when a positivity constraint is imposed. This generalizes recent results obtained in [8] for the standard SOS model ( \(p=1\) ). PubDate: 2017-07-15 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0137-x

Authors:Francesco Polizzi Abstract: Abstract We relate the existence of some surfaces of general type and maximal Albanese dimension to the existence of some monodromy representations of the braid group \(\mathsf {B}_2(C_2)\) in the symmetric group \(\mathsf {S}_n\) . Furthermore, we compute the number of such representations up to \(n=9\) , and we analyze the cases \(n \in \{2, \, 3, \, 4\}\) . For \(n=2, \, 3\) we recover some surfaces with \(p_g=q=2\) recently studied (with different methods) by the author and his collaborators, whereas for \(n=4\) we obtain some conjecturally new examples.

Authors:Alessandra Bernardi; Grigoriy Blekherman; Giorgio Ottaviani Abstract: Abstract We study typical ranks with respect to a real variety X. Examples of such are tensor rank (X is the Segre variety) and symmetric tensor rank (X is the Veronese variety). We show that any rank between the minimal typical rank and the maximal typical rank is also typical. We investigate typical ranks of n-variate symmetric tensors of order d, or equivalently homogeneous polynomials of degree d in n variables, for small values of n and d. We show that 4 is the unique typical rank of real ternary cubics, and quaternary cubics have typical ranks 5 and 6 only. For ternary quartics we show that 6 and 7 are typical ranks and that all typical ranks are between 6 and 8. For ternary quintics we show that the typical ranks are between 7 and 13.

Authors:M. Di Francesco; S. Fagioli; M. D. Rosini Abstract: Abstract In this paper we prove that the unique entropy solution to a scalar nonlinear conservation law with strictly monotone velocity and nonnegative initial condition can be rigorously obtained as the large particle limit of a microscopic follow-the-leader type model, which is interpreted as the discrete Lagrangian approximation of the nonlinear scalar conservation law. The result is complemented with some numerical simulations. PubDate: 2017-06-20 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0132-2

Authors:Francesco Bastianelli; Ciro Ciliberto; Flaminio Flamini; Paola Supino Abstract: Abstract This short paper concerns the existence of curves with low gonality on smooth hypersurfaces \(X\subset \mathbb {P}^{n+1}\) . After reviewing a series of results on this topic, we report on a recent progress we achieved as a product of the Workshop Birational geometry of surfaces, held at University of Rome “Tor Vergata” on January 11th–15th, 2016. In particular, we obtained that if \(X\subset \mathbb {P}^{n+1}\) is a very general hypersurface of degree \(d\geqslant 2n+2\) , the least gonality of a curve \(C\subset X\) passing through a general point of X is \(\mathrm {gon}(C)=d-\left\lfloor \frac{\sqrt{16n+1}-1}{2}\right\rfloor \) , apart from some exceptions we list.

In particular, we analyze the case when X / G has terminal singularities. We prove that, if G is cyclic of prime order and X / G has terminal singularities, then G has order lower than or equal to 5.
