Authors:Mehdi Bastani; Davod Khojasteh Salkuyeh Pages: 999 - 1010 Abstract: In this paper, the non-Hermitian positive definite linear systems are solved via preconditioned Krylov subspace methods such as the generalized minimal residual (GMRES) method. To do so, the two-parameter generalized Hermitian and skew-Hermitian splitting (TGHSS) iteration method is applied to establish an m-step polynomial preconditioner. Some theoretical results are also given to investigate the convergence properties of the preconditioned method. Three numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the performance of the new method and to compare it with a recently proposed method.

Authors:Ayoub B. M. Basheer; Jamshid Moori Pages: 1011 - 1032 Abstract: This paper is dealing with two split extensions of the form \(2^{8}{:}A_{9}.\) We refer to these two groups by \(\overline{G}_{1}\) and \(\overline{G}_{2}.\) For \(\overline{G}_{1},\) the 8-dimensional GF(2)-module is in fact the deleted permutation module for \(A_{9}.\) We firstly determine the conjugacy classes of \(\overline{G}_{1}\) and \(\overline{G}_{2}\) using the coset analysis technique. The structures of inertia factor groups were determined for the two extensions. The inertia factor groups of \(\overline{G}_{1}\) are \(A_{9},\,A_{8},\, S_{7},\,(A_{6} \times 3){:}2 \) and \((A_{5} \times A_{4}){:}2,\) while the inertia factor groups of \(\overline{G}_{2}\) are \(A_{9},\, PSL(2,8){:}3\) and \(2^{3}{:}GL(3,2).\) We then determine the Fischer matrices for these two groups and apply the Clifford–Fischer theory to compute the ordinary character tables of \(\overline{G}_{1}\) and \(\overline{G}_{2}.\) The Fischer matrices of \(\overline{G}_{1}\) and \(\overline{G}_{2}\) are all integer valued, with sizes ranging from 1 to 9 and from 1 to 4 respectively. The full character tables of \(\overline{G}_{1}\) and \(\overline{G}_{2}\) are \(84 \times 84\) and \(40 \times 40\) complex valued matrices respectively.

Authors:Saleem Abdullah; Shah Hussain Pages: 1033 - 1059 Abstract: In this article, a new generalization of intuitionsitic fuzzy bi-ideals of a semigroup considered so called \((\alpha ,\beta )\) -intuitionistic fuzzy bi-ideals, (1, 2)-ideals in a semigroup. We combine the notion of intuitionsitic fuzzy point and intuitionistic fuzzy sets to defined different types of intuitionsitic fuzzy bi-ideals of a semigroups. We investigate different properties of these notions and their relationships, particularly, we define \((\in ,\in \vee q)\) -intuitionistic fuzzy bi-ideals and (1, 2) ideals in semigroups.

Authors:Kanak Kanti Baishya Pages: 1061 - 1066 Abstract: Recently the present author introduced the notion of generalized quasi-conformal curvature tensor which bridges conformal curvature tensor, concircular curvature tensor, projective curvature tensor and conharmonic curvature tensor. The object of the present paper is to find out curvature conditions for which Ricci solitons in Sasakian manifolds are sometimes shrinking and some other time remain expanding.

Authors:P. Mafuta Pages: 1067 - 1074 Abstract: Let G be a simple 2-connected, \(C_4\) -free graph with minimum degree \(\delta (G)\ge 4\) and leaf number L(G) such that \(\delta (G)\ge \displaystyle \frac{1}{2}L(G)\) . We show that G is Hamiltonian. In addition, we provide family of graphs to show that the results are best possible for aforementioned class of graphs. The results, apart from supporting the conjecture (Graffiti.pc 190) of the computer program Graffiti.pc, instructed by DeLaVi \({\tilde{n}}\) a, provide a new sufficient condition for Hamiltonicity in \(C_4\) -free graphs.

Authors:F. Baghery; N. Khelfallah; B. Mezerdi; I. Turpin Pages: 1075 - 1092 Abstract: We consider a control problem where the system is driven by a decoupled as well as a coupled forward–backward stochastic differential equation. We prove the existence of an optimal control in the class of relaxed controls, which are measure-valued processes, generalizing the usual strict controls. The proof is based on some tightness properties and weak convergence on the space \(\mathcal {D}\) of càdlàg functions, endowed with the Jakubowsky S-topology. Moreover, under some convexity assumptions, we show that the relaxed optimal control is realized by a strict control.

Authors:Amina Boucenna; Smaïl Djebali; Toufik Moussaoui Pages: 1115 - 1129 Abstract: The aim of this work is to present new abstract fixed point theorems in ordered Banach spaces and on Banach algebras. The main existence results generalize Krasnosel’skii’s fixed point theorem of compression and expansion to a class of \(\alpha \) -homogeneous operators and monotone operators. Two applications to nonlinear Hammerstein integral equations, one of which is of fractional order, are provided together with a numerical example.

We deduce the generating functions of several restrictions of these numbers. In addition, a new combinatorial interpretations is presented for the r-Whitney numbers and the r-Whitney-Lah numbers.

Authors:Aissa Guesmia Pages: 1253 - 1284 Abstract: In this paper, we consider a vibrating system of Timoshenko-type in a bounded one-dimensional domain with discrete time delay and complementary frictional damping and infinite memory controls all acting on the transversal displacement. We show that the system is well-posed in the sens of semigroup and that, under appropriate assumptions on the weights of the delay and the history data, the stability of the system holds in case of the equal-speed propagation as well as in the opposite case in spite of the presence of a discrete time delay, where the decay rate of solutions is given in terms of the smoothness of the initial data and the growth of the relaxation kernel at infinity. The results of this paper extend the ones obtained by the present author and Messaoudi in (Acta Math Sci 36:1–33, 2016) to the case of presence of discrete delay.

Authors:Ibrahima Bakayoko; Bakary Manga Pages: 1297 - 1311 Abstract: In this paper we introduce modules over both left and right Hom-alternative algebras. We give some constructions of left and right Hom-alternative modules and give various properties of both, as well as examples. Then, we prove that morphisms of left alternative algebras extend to morphisms of left Hom-alternative algebras. Next, we introduce comodules over Hom–Poisson coalgebras and show that we may obtain a structure map of a comodule over a Hom–Poisson coalgebra from a given one.

Authors:Pierre Kouadjo Brou; Youssouf M. Diagana Pages: 1313 - 1325 Abstract: Let R be a ring and A a subring of R. Let \(h=\left( \mathcal {M} _{n}\right) _{n\in \mathbb {Z}\cup \left\{ +\infty \right\} }\) be a family of subgroups of an R-module \(\mathcal {M}\) . We say that h is an A-quasi-graduation of \(\mathcal {M}\) if for every \(p\in \mathbb {N}, \mathcal {M}_{p}\) is a sub-A-module of R with \(\mathcal {M}_{\infty }=(0)\) . We present weak notions of J-independence for different extensions of the analytic spread. We show that under some conditions they coincide with \(\lim \nolimits _{n \rightarrow +\infty }\ell _{J}(h^{(n!)},A,k)\) , where, for all integers \(p, h^{(p)} = (\mathcal {M}_{pn})_{n\in \mathbb {Z}\cup \left\{ +\infty \right\} }\) and where \(\ell _J (h^{(p)}, A, k)\) is the maximum number of elements of J which are J-independent of order k with respect to the A-quasi-graduation \(h^{(p)}\) of the R-module \(\mathcal {M}\) .

Type-2 Bishop motion have been defined for space curve \(\beta \) and then type-2 Bishop Darboux vector of this motion has been calculated for fixed and moving spaces in \(E^3\) . Also, we have showed that type-2 Bishop rotation for space curves is decomposed into two simultaneous rotations. One of the axes of this simultaneous rotations is a parallel of the binormal vector of the curve, the other is the direction of the type-2 Bishop Darboux vector of the curve.
