Authors:Luisa Consiglieri Abstract: This paper deals with thermoelectric problems including the Peltier and Seebeck effects. The coupled elliptic and doubly quasilinear parabolic equations for the electric and heat currents are stated, respectively, under power-type boundary conditions that describe the thermal radiative effects. To verify the existence of weak solutions to this coupled problem (Theorem 1), analytical investigations for abstract multi-quasilinear elliptic-parabolic systems with nonsmooth data are presented (Theorems 2 and 3). They are essentially approximated solutions based on the Rothe method. It consists on introducing time discretized problems, establishing their existence, and then passing to the limit as the time step goes to zero. The proof of the existence of time discretized solutions relies on fixed point and compactness arguments. In this study, we establish quantitative estimates to clarify the smallness conditions.

Authors:Aibo Liu; Changchun Liu Abstract: We consider a simplified smectic-A liquid crystal model in two dimensional bounded domain. The model consists of a Navier–Stokes equation governing the fluid velocity coupled with the transported heat flows of harmonic map. Based on the combination of the suitable dissipative estimates with the energy techniques, we established the existence of global attractor \(\mathcal {A}\) on a suitable phase-space and proved that the system has a regular compact absorbing set.

Authors:Kathryn E. Hare; Jimmy He Abstract: Let G be a compact, connected simple Lie group and \(\mathfrak {g}\) its Lie algebra. It is known that if \(\mu \) is any G-invariant measure supported on an adjoint orbit in \(\mathfrak {g}\) , then for each integer k, the k-fold convolution product of \(\mu \) with itself is either singular or in \( L^{2}\) . This was originally proven by computations that depended on the Lie type of \(\mathfrak {g}\) , as well as properties of the measure. In this note, we observe that the validity of this dichotomy is a direct consequence of the Duistermaat–Heckman theorem from symplectic geometry and that, in fact, any convolution product of (even distinct) orbital measures is either singular or in \(L^{2+\varepsilon }\) for some \(\varepsilon >0\) . An abstract transference result is given to show that the \(L^{2}\) -singular dichotomy holds for certain of the G-invariant measures supported on conjugacy classes in G.

Authors:Maurizio Brunetti; Adriana Ciampella Abstract: Let p be an odd prime. In this paper we determine the group of length-preserving automorphisms for the ordinary Steenrod algebra A(p) and for \({\mathcal {B}}(p)\) , the algebra of cohomology operations for the cohomology of cocommutative \(\mathbb {F}_p\) -Hopf algebras. Contrarily to the \(p=2\) case, no length-preserving strict monomorphism turns out to exist. PubDate: 2018-01-10 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0155-8

Authors:Qi Han Pages: 503 - 515 Abstract: In this paper, we describe a family of meromorphic functions in \(\mathbf {C}\) from analyzing some properties of these L-functions in the extended Selberg class and show two uniqueness results of such a function, in terms of shared values with a general meromorphic function in \(\mathbf {C}\) . In particular, we show the condition “ \(\displaystyle {1\mathsf{CM}+3\mathsf{IM}}\) value-sharing” suffices. PubDate: 2017-12-01 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-016-0081-1 Issue No:Vol. 10, No. 4 (2017)

Authors:T. S. S. R. K. Rao Pages: 585 - 589 Abstract: In this paper we exhibit new classes of Banach spaces for which strong notions of optimization can be lifted from quotient spaces. Motivated by a well known result of Cheney and Wulbert on lifting of proximinality from a quotient space to a subspace, for closed subspaces, \(Z \subset Y \subset X\) , we consider stronger forms of optimization, that Z has in X and the quotient space Y / Z has in X / Z should lead to the conclusion Y has the same property in X. The versions we consider have been studied under various names in the literature as L-proximinal subspaces or subspaces that have the strong- \(1\frac{1}{2}\) -ball property. We give an example where the strong- \(1\frac{1}{2}\) -ball property fails to lift to the quotient. We show that if every M-ideal in Y is a M-summand, for a finite codimensional subspace \(Z \subset Y\) , that is a M-ideal in X with the strong- \(1\frac{1}{2}\) -ball property in X and if Y / Z has the \(1\frac{1}{2}\) -ball property in X / Z, then Y has the strong- \(1\frac{1}{2}\) -ball property in X.

Authors:Kamal Paykan Pages: 607 - 616 Abstract: A ring is quasi-Baer (respectively, right p.q.-Baer) in case the right annihilator of every (respectively, principal right) ideal is generated by an idempotent, as a right ideal. A ring R is right AIP if the right annihilator of any right ideal of R is pure as a right ideal. In this article, we study relations between the quasi-Baer, right p.q.-Baer, and right AIP properties of a ring R, and its skew Hurwitz series ring \((HR, \alpha )\) , where R is a ring equipped with an endomorphism \(\alpha \) . Examples to illustrate and delimit the theory are provided. PubDate: 2017-12-01 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-016-0098-5 Issue No:Vol. 10, No. 4 (2017)

Authors:L. Boccardo; F. Murat Pages: 617 - 625 Abstract: We consider a nonlinear equation with a monotone operator acting in \(W^{1, p}_0 (\Omega )\) , a lower order term \(u u ^{n-1}\) , and a source term in \(L^m (\Omega )\) with a poor summability \(m > 1\) or even \(m = 1\) . When the power n increases and tends to \(\infty \) , we prove that the (conveniently defined) solution of this problem converges (in a convenient sense) to the solution of the variational inequality posed on the convex set \(\{ v \in W^{1, p}_0(\Omega ) : v(x) \le 1 \}\) .

Authors:Michael Axtell; Nicholas R. Baeth; Joe Stickles Pages: 649 - 670 Abstract: The self-idealization of a commutative ring R is isomorphic to the ring \(R[x]/(x^2)\) or, equivalently, the ring of upper-triangular Toeplitz matrices \({{\mathrm{\mathcal {T}}}}(R)=\left\{ \left( \begin{matrix} a &{} b \\ 0 &{} a \end{matrix}\right) :a,b\in R\right\} \) . Recently, Chang and Smertnig characterized the sets of lengths of factorizations in \({{\mathrm{\mathcal {T}}}}(D)\) where D is a principal ideal domain. In this work, in addition to correcting an error in their paper, we extend the study to \({{\mathrm{\mathcal {T}}}}(R)\) when R is either a principal ideal ring or a unique factorization ring.

Authors:Hawete Hattab Pages: 671 - 679 Abstract: Let (G, X) be a flow such that X is a locally finite graph and G is a finitely generated group. In this paper, it is shown that the following properties are equivalent: (G, X) is pointwise recurrent; (G, X) is pointwise periodic; (G, X) is pointwise almost periodic. We show that every pointwise recurrent flow of a locally finite graph is equicontinuous. We also give some qualitative properties of an equicontinuous flow.

Authors:Matteo Casati; Daniele Valeri Abstract: We give an introduction to the Mathematica packages MasterPVA and MasterPVAmulti used to compute \(\lambda \) -brackets in Poisson vertex algebras, which play an important role in the theory of infinite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems. As an application, we give an introduction to the Mathematica package WAlg aimed to compute the \(\lambda \) -brackets among the generators of classical affine \({\mathcal {W}}\) -algebras. The use of these packages is shown by providing some explicit examples. PubDate: 2017-12-09 DOI: 10.1007/s40574-017-0146-9
