  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 17: An Independent Set of Axioms of MV-Algebras and
           Solutions of the Set-Theoretical Yang–Baxter Equation

    • Authors: Tahsin Oner, Ibrahim Senturk, Gulsah Oner
      First page: 17
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to give a new equivalent set of axioms for MV-algebras, and to show that the axioms are independent. In addition to this, we handle Yang–Baxter equation problem. In conclusion, we construct a new set-theoretical solution for the Yang–Baxter equation by using MV-algebras.

    • Authors: Ram Saxena, Rakesh Parmar
      First page: 18
      Abstract: We aim to present some formulas for the Saigo hypergeometric fractional integral and differential operators involving the generalized Mathieu series S μ ( r ) , which are expressed in terms of the Hadamard product of the generalized Mathieu series S μ ( r ) and the Fox–Wright function p Ψ q ( z ) . Corresponding assertions for the classical Riemann–Liouville and Erdélyi–Kober fractional integral and differential operators are deduced. Further, it is emphasized that the results presented here, which are for a seemingly complicated series, can reveal their involved properties via the series of the two known functions.

    • Authors: María Campión, Edurne Falcó, José García-Lapresta, Esteban Induráin
      First page: 19
      Abstract: In this paper, we study different methods of scoring linguistic expressions defined on a finite set, in the search for a linear order that ranks all those possible expressions. Among them, particular attention is paid to the canonical extension, and its representability through distances in a graph plus some suitable penalization of imprecision. The relationship between this setting and the classical problems of numerical representability of orderings, as well as extension of orderings from a set to a superset is also explored. Finally, aggregation procedures of qualitative rankings and scorings are also analyzed.

           Arbitrary Dimensions

    • Authors: Xiaosheng Zhuang
      First page: 20
      Abstract: In this paper, we generalize the family of Deslauriers–Dubuc’s interpolatory masks from dimension one to arbitrary dimensions with respect to the quincunx dilation matrices, thereby providing a family of quincunx fundamental refinable functions in arbitrary dimensions. We show that a family of unique quincunx interpolatory masks exists and such a family of masks is of real value and has the full-axis symmetry property. In dimension d = 2 , we give the explicit form of such unique quincunx interpolatory masks, which implies the nonnegativity property of such a family of masks.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 21: The SIC Question: History and State of Play

    • Authors: Christopher Fuchs, Michael Hoang, Blake Stacey
      First page: 21
      Abstract: Recent years have seen significant advances in the study of symmetric informationally complete (SIC) quantum measurements, also known as maximal sets of complex equiangular lines. Previously, the published record contained solutions up to dimension 67, and was with high confidence complete up through dimension 50. Computer calculations have now furnished solutions in all dimensions up to 151, and in several cases beyond that, as large as dimension 844. These new solutions exhibit an additional type of symmetry beyond the basic definition of a SIC, and so verify a conjecture of Zauner in many new cases. The solutions in dimensions 68 through 121 were obtained by Andrew Scott, and his catalogue of distinct solutions is, with high confidence, complete up to dimension 90. Additional results in dimensions 122 through 151 were calculated by the authors using Scott’s code. We recap the history of the problem, outline how the numerical searches were done, and pose some conjectures on how the search technique could be improved. In order to facilitate communication across disciplinary boundaries, we also present a comprehensive bibliography of SIC research.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 22: New Order on Type 2 Fuzzy Numbers

    • Authors: Pablo Hernández, Susana Cubillo, Carmen Torres-Blanc, José Guerrero
      First page: 22
      Abstract: Since Lotfi A. Zadeh introduced the concept of fuzzy sets in 1965, many authors have devoted their efforts to the study of these new sets, both from a theoretical and applied point of view. Fuzzy sets were later extended in order to get more adequate and flexible models of inference processes, where uncertainty, imprecision or vagueness is present. Type 2 fuzzy sets comprise one of such extensions. In this paper, we introduce and study an extension of the fuzzy numbers (type 1), the type 2 generalized fuzzy numbers and type 2 fuzzy numbers. Moreover, we also define a partial order on these sets, which extends into these sets the usual order on real numbers, which undoubtedly becomes a new option to be taken into account in the existing total preorders for ranking interval type 2 fuzzy numbers, which are a subset of type 2 generalized fuzzy numbers.

      First page: 23
      Abstract: Let C → be a category whose objects are semigroups with topology and morphisms are closed semigroup relations, in particular, continuous homomorphisms. An object X of the category C → is called C → -closed if for each morphism Φ ⊂ X × Y in the category C → the image Φ ( X ) = { y ∈ Y : ∃ x ∈ X ( x , y ) ∈ Φ } is closed in Y. In the paper we survey existing and new results on topological groups, which are C → -closed for various categories C → of topologized semigroups.

    • Authors: Paul Alsing, Howard Blair, Matthew Corne, Gordon Jones, Warner Miller, Konstantin Mischaikow, Vidit Nanda
      First page: 24
      Abstract: We implement methods from computational homology to obtain a topological signal of singularity formation in a selection of geometries evolved numerically by Ricci flow. Our approach, based on persistent homology, produces precise, quantitative measures describing the behavior of an entire collection of data across a discrete sample of times. We analyze the topological signals of geometric criticality obtained numerically from the application of persistent homology to models manifesting singularities under Ricci flow. The results we obtain for these numerical models suggest that the topological signals distinguish global singularity formation (collapse to a round point) from local singularity formation (neckpinch). Finally, we discuss the interpretation and implication of these results and future applications.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 25: Orness For Idempotent Aggregation Functions

    • Authors: Leire Legarreta, Inmaculada Lizasoain, Iraide Mardones-Pérez
      First page: 25
      Abstract: Aggregation functions are mathematical operators that merge given data in order to obtain a global value that preserves the information given by the data as much as possible. In most practical applications, this value is expected to be between the infimum and the supremum of the given data, which is guaranteed only when the aggregation functions are idempotent. Ordered weighted averaging (OWA) operators are particular cases of this kind of function, with the particularity that the obtained global value depends on neither the source nor the expert that provides each datum, but only on the set of values. They have been classified by means of the orness—a measurement of the proximity of an OWA operator to the OR-operator. In this paper, the concept of orness is extended to the framework of idempotent aggregation functions defined both on the real unit interval and on a complete lattice with a local finiteness condition.

    • Authors: Eli Appleboim
      First page: 26
      Abstract: This paper gives a study of a two dimensional version of the theory of normal surfaces; namely, a study o normal curves and their relations with respect to geodesic curves. This study results with a nice discrete approximation of geodesics embedded in a triangulated orientable Riemannian surface. Experimental results of the two dimensional case are given as well.

      Abstract: Using the Kaczmarz algorithm, we prove that for any singular Borel probability measure μ on [ 0 , 1 ) , every f ∈ L 2 ( μ ) possesses a Fourier series of the form f ( x ) = ∑ n = 0 ∞ c n e 2 π i n x . We show that the coefficients c n can be computed in terms of the quantities f ^ ( n ) = ∫ 0 1 f ( x ) e − 2 π i n x d μ ( x ) . We also demonstrate a Shannon-type sampling theorem for functions that are in a sense μ -bandlimited.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 8: Expansion of the Kullback-Leibler Divergence, and
           a New Class of Information Metrics

    • Authors: David Galas, Gregory Dewey, James Kunert-Graf, Nikita Sakhanenko
      First page: 8
      Abstract: Inferring and comparing complex, multivariable probability density functions is fundamental to problems in several fields, including probabilistic learning, network theory, and data analysis. Classification and prediction are the two faces of this class of problem. This study takes an approach that simplifies many aspects of these problems by presenting a structured, series expansion of the Kullback-Leibler divergence—a function central to information theory—and devise a distance metric based on this divergence. Using the Möbius inversion duality between multivariable entropies and multivariable interaction information, we express the divergence as an additive series in the number of interacting variables, which provides a restricted and simplified set of distributions to use as approximation and with which to model data. Truncations of this series yield approximations based on the number of interacting variables. The first few terms of the expansion-truncation are illustrated and shown to lead naturally to familiar approximations, including the well-known Kirkwood superposition approximation. Truncation can also induce a simple relation between the multi-information and the interaction information. A measure of distance between distributions, based on Kullback-Leibler divergence, is then described and shown to be a true metric if properly restricted. The expansion is shown to generate a hierarchy of metrics and connects this work to information geometry formalisms. An example of the application of these metrics to a graph comparison problem is given that shows that the formalism can be applied to a wide range of network problems and provides a general approach for systematic approximations in numbers of interactions or connections, as well as a related quantitative metric.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 9: Euclidean Algorithm for Extension of Symmetric
           Laurent Polynomial Matrix and Its Application in Construction of Multiband
           Symmetric Perfect Reconstruction Filter Bank

    • Authors: Jianzhong Wang
      First page: 9
      Abstract: For a given pair of s-dimensional real Laurent polynomials ( a → ( z ) , b → ( z ) ) , which has a certain type of symmetry and satisfies the dual condition b → ( z ) T a → ( z ) = 1 , an s × s Laurent polynomial matrix A ( z ) (together with its inverse A - 1 ( z ) ) is called a symmetric Laurent polynomial matrix extension of the dual pair ( a → ( z ) , b → ( z ) ) if A ( z ) has similar symmetry, the inverse A - 1 ( Z ) also is a Laurent polynomial matrix, the first column of A ( z ) is a → ( z ) and the first row of A - 1 ( z ) is ( b → ( z ) ) T . In this paper, we introduce the Euclidean symmetric division and the symmetric elementary matrices in the Laurent polynomial ring and reveal their relation. Based on the Euclidean symmetric division algorithm in the Laurent polynomial ring, we develop a novel and effective algorithm for symmetric Laurent polynomial matrix extension. We also apply the algorithm in the construction of multi-band symmetric perfect reconstruction filter banks.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 10: Orientation Asymmetric Surface Model for
           Membranes: Finsler Geometry Modeling

    • Authors: Evgenii Proutorov, Hiroshi Koibuchi
      First page: 10
      Abstract: We study triangulated surface models with nontrivial surface metrices for membranes. The surface model is defined by a mapping r from a two-dimensional parameter space M to the three-dimensional Euclidean space R 3 . The metric variable g a b , which is always fixed to the Euclidean metric δ a b , can be extended to a more general non-Euclidean metric on M in the continuous model. The problem we focus on in this paper is whether such an extension is well defined or not in the discrete model. We find that a discrete surface model with a nontrivial metric becomes well defined if it is treated in the context of Finsler geometry (FG) modeling, where triangle edge length in M depends on the direction. It is also shown that the discrete FG model is orientation asymmetric on invertible surfaces in general, and for this reason, the FG model has a potential advantage for describing real physical membranes, which are expected to have some asymmetries for orientation-changing transformations.

    • Authors: Dhannya Joseph
      First page: 11
      Abstract: In this paper, I consider multivariate analogues of the extended gamma density, which will provide multivariate extensions to Tsallis statistics and superstatistics. By making use of the pathway parameter β , multivariate generalized gamma density can be obtained from the model considered here. Some of its special cases and limiting cases are also mentioned. Conditional density, best predictor function, regression theory, etc., connected with this model are also introduced.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 12: Toward Measuring Network Aesthetics Based on

    • Authors: Zengqiang Chen, Matthias Dehmer, Frank Emmert-Streib, Mowshowitz, Yongtang Shi
      First page: 12
      Abstract: In this exploratory paper, we discuss quantitative graph-theoretical measures of network aesthetics. Related work in this area has typically focused on geometrical features (e.g., line crossings or edge bendiness) of drawings or visual representations of graphs which purportedly affect an observer’s perception. Here we take a very different approach, abandoning reliance on geometrical properties, and apply information-theoretic measures to abstract graphs and networks directly (rather than to their visual representaions) as a means of capturing classical appreciation of structural symmetry. Examples are used solely to motivate the approach to measurement, and to elucidate our symmetry-based mathematical theory of network aesthetics.

           Right-Angled Artin Group

    • Authors: Gianluca Paolini, Saharon Shelah
      First page: 13
      Abstract: We prove that if G is a Polish group and A a group admitting a system of generators whose associated length function satisfies: (i) if 0 < k < ω , then l g ( x ) ≤ l g ( x k ) ; (ii) if l g ( y ) < k < ω and x k = y , then x = e , then there exists a subgroup G * of G of size b (the bounding number) such that G * is not embeddable in A. In particular, we prove that the automorphism group of a countable structure cannot be an uncountable right-angled Artin group. This generalizes analogous results for free and free abelian uncountable groups.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 14: Tsallis Entropy and Generalized Shannon

    • Authors: Sonja Jäckle, Karsten Keller
      First page: 14
      Abstract: The Tsallis entropy given for a positive parameter α can be considered as a generalization of the classical Shannon entropy. For the latter, corresponding to α = 1 , there exist many axiomatic characterizations. One of them based on the well-known Khinchin-Shannon axioms has been simplified several times and adapted to Tsallis entropy, where the axiom of (generalized) Shannon additivity is playing a central role. The main aim of this paper is to discuss this axiom in the context of Tsallis entropy. We show that it is sufficient for characterizing Tsallis entropy, with the exceptions of cases α = 1 , 2 discussed separately.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 15: Scalable and Fully Distributed Localization in
           Large-Scale Sensor Networks

    • Authors: Miao Jin, Su Xia, Hongyi Wu, Xianfeng Gu
      First page: 15
      Abstract: This work proposes a novel connectivity-based localization algorithm, well suitable for large-scale sensor networks with complex shapes and a non-uniform nodal distribution. In contrast to current state-of-the-art connectivity-based localization methods, the proposed algorithm is highly scalable with linear computation and communication costs with respect to the size of the network; and fully distributed where each node only needs the information of its neighbors without cumbersome partitioning and merging process. The algorithm is theoretically guaranteed and numerically stable. Moreover, the algorithm can be readily extended to the localization of networks with a one-hop transmission range distance measurement, and the propagation of the measurement error at one sensor node is limited within a small area of the network around the node. Extensive simulations and comparison with other methods under various representative network settings are carried out, showing the superior performance of the proposed algorithm.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 16: An Evaluation of ARFIMA (Autoregressive
           Fractional Integral Moving Average) Programs

    • Authors: Kai Liu, YangQuan Chen, Xi Zhang
      First page: 16
      Abstract: Strong coupling between values at different times that exhibit properties of long range dependence, non-stationary, spiky signals cannot be processed by the conventional time series analysis. The autoregressive fractional integral moving average (ARFIMA) model, a fractional order signal processing technique, is the generalization of the conventional integer order models—autoregressive integral moving average (ARIMA) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) model. Therefore, it has much wider applications since it could capture both short-range dependence and long range dependence. For now, several software programs have been developed to deal with ARFIMA processes. However, it is unfortunate to see that using different numerical tools for time series analysis usually gives quite different and sometimes radically different results. Users are often puzzled about which tool is suitable for a specific application. We performed a comprehensive survey and evaluation of available ARFIMA tools in the literature in the hope of benefiting researchers with different academic backgrounds. In this paper, four aspects of ARFIMA programs concerning simulation, fractional order difference filter, estimation and forecast are compared and evaluated, respectively, in various software platforms. Our informative comments can serve as useful selection guidelines.

  • Axioms, Vol. 6, Pages 1: Cuntz Semigroups of Compact-Type Hopf C*-Algebras

    • Authors: Dan Kučerovský
      First page: 1
      Abstract: The classical Cuntz semigroup has an important role in the study of C*-algebras, being one of the main invariants used to classify recalcitrant C*-algebras up to isomorphism. We consider C*-algebras that have Hopf algebra structure, and find additional structure in their Cuntz semigroups. We show that in many cases, isomorphisms of Cuntz semigroups that respect this additional structure can be lifted to Hopf algebra (bi)isomorphisms, up to a possible flip of the co-product. This shows that the Cuntz semigroup provides an interesting invariant of C*-algebraic quantum groups.

           Operators with Piecewise Polynomial Coefficients

    • Authors: Dana Černá, Václav Finĕk
      First page: 4
      Abstract: We propose a construction of a Hermite cubic spline-wavelet basis on the interval and hypercube. The basis is adapted to homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions. The wavelets are orthogonal to piecewise polynomials of degree at most seven on a uniform grid. Therefore, the wavelets have eight vanishing moments, and the matrices arising from discretization of differential equations with coefficients that are piecewise polynomials of degree at most four on uniform grids are sparse. Numerical examples demonstrate the efficiency of an adaptive wavelet method with the constructed wavelet basis for solving the one-dimensional elliptic equation and the two-dimensional Black–Scholes equation with a quadratic volatility.

           Information of Experiments in the Fuzzy Case

    • Authors: Dagmar Markechová
      First page: 5
      Abstract: The main aim of this contribution is to define the notions of Kullback-Leibler divergence and conditional mutual information in fuzzy probability spaces and to derive the basic properties of the suggested measures. In particular, chain rules for mutual information of fuzzy partitions and for Kullback-Leibler divergence with respect to fuzzy P-measures are established. In addition, a convexity of Kullback-Leibler divergence and mutual information with respect to fuzzy P-measures is studied.

      Abstract: We make a detailed study of norm retrieval. We give several classification theorems for norm retrieval and give a large number of examples to go with the theory. One consequence is a new result about Parseval frames: If a Parseval frame is divided into two subsets with spans W 1 , W 2 and W 1 ∩ W 2 = { 0 } , then W 1 ⊥ W 2 .
