Enhanced Metric Regularity And Lipschitzian Properties Of Variational Systems, 2010 University of Alicante, Spain

#### Enhanced Metric Regularity And Lipschitzian Properties Of Variational Systems, Francisco J. Aragón Artacho, Boris S. Mordukhovich

*Mathematics Research Reports*

This paper mainly concerns the study of a large class of variational systems governed by parametric generalized equations, which encompass variational and hemivariational inequalities, complementarity problems, first-order necessary optimality conditions, and other optimization-related models important for optimization theory and applications. An efficient approach to these issues has been developed in our preceding work [1] establishing qualitative and quantitative relationships between conventional metric regularity jsubregularity and Lipschitzian/calmness properties in the framework of parametric generalized equations in arbitrary Banach spaces. This paper provides, on one hand, significant extensions of the major results in [1] to new partial metric regularity and hemiregularity ...

A Majorization Algorithm For Constrained Correlation Matrix Approximation, 2010 General Motors Company

#### A Majorization Algorithm For Constrained Correlation Matrix Approximation, Daniel J. Simon, Jeff Abell

*Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Faculty Publications*

We desire to find a correlation matrix of a given rank that is as close as possible to an input matrix *R*, subject to the constraint that specified elements in must be zero. Our optimality criterion is the weighted Frobenius norm of the approximation error, and we use a constrained majorization algorithm to solve the problem. Although many correlation matrix approximation approaches have been proposed, this specific problem, with the rank specification and the constraints, has not been studied until now. We discuss solution feasibility, convergence, and computational effort. We also present several examples.

Improved Automated Monitoring And New Analysis Algorithm For Circadean Phototaxis Rhythms In Chlamydomonas, 2010 Western Kentucky University

#### Improved Automated Monitoring And New Analysis Algorithm For Circadean Phototaxis Rhythms In Chlamydomonas, Christa Gaskill, Jennifer Forbes-Stovall, Bruce Kessler, Mike Young, Claire A. Rinehart, Sigrid Jacobshagen

*Bruce Kessler*

Automated monitoring of circadian rhythms is an efficient way of gaining insight into oscillation parameters like period and phase for the underlying pacemaker of the circadian clock. Measurement of the circadian rhythm of phototaxis (swimming towards light) exhibited by the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has been automated by directing a narrow and dim light beam through a culture at regular intervals and determining the decrease in light transmittance due to the accumulation of cells in the beam. In this study, the monitoring process was optimized by constructing a new computercontrolled measuring machine that limits the test beam to wavelengths reported ...

The Camassa-Holm Hierarchy And Soliton Perturbations, 2010 Dublin Institute of Technology

#### The Camassa-Holm Hierarchy And Soliton Perturbations, Georgi Grahovski, Rossen Ivanov

*Conference papers*

The theory of soliton perturbations is considered. The focus is on the usefulness of the so-called Generalised Fourier Transform (GFT). This is a method that involves expansions over the complete basis of “squared solutions” of the spectral problem, associated to the soliton equation. The Inverse Scattering Transform for the corresponding hierarchy of soliton equations can be viewed as a GFT where the expansions of the solutions have generalised Fourier coefficients given by the scattering data. The GFT provides a natural setting for the analysis of small perturbations to an integrable equation: starting from a purely soliton solution one can ’modify ...

High Accuracy Multiscale Multigrid Computation For Partial Differential Equations, 2010 University of Kentucky

#### High Accuracy Multiscale Multigrid Computation For Partial Differential Equations, Yin Wang

*University of Kentucky Doctoral Dissertations*

Scientific computing and computer simulation play an increasingly important role in scientific investigation and engineering designs, supplementing traditional experiments, such as in automotive crash studies, global climate change, ocean modeling, medical imaging, and nuclear weapons. The numerical simulation is much cheaper than experimentation for these application areas and it can be used as the third way of science discovery beyond the experimental and theoretical analysis. However, the increasing demand of high resolution solutions of the Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) with less computational time has increased the importance for researchers and engineers to come up with efficient and scalable computational techniques ...

Traveling Wave Solutions For A Nonlocal Reaction-Diffusion Model Of Influenza A Drift, 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

#### Traveling Wave Solutions For A Nonlocal Reaction-Diffusion Model Of Influenza A Drift, Joaquin Riviera, Yi Li

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications*

In this paper we discuss the existence of traveling wave solutions for a nonlocal reaction-diffusion model of Influenza A proposed in Lin et. al. (2003). The proof for the existence of the traveling wave takes advantage of the different time scales between the evolution of the disease and the progress of the disease in the population. Under this framework we are able to use the techniques from geometric singular perturbation theory to prove the existence of the traveling wave.

A Projection-Based Error Analysis Of Hdg Methods, 2010 Portland State University

#### A Projection-Based Error Analysis Of Hdg Methods, Jay Gopalakrishnan, Bernardo Cockburn, Francisco-Javier Sayas

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications and Presentations*

We introduce a new technique for the error analysis of hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods. The technique relies on the use of a new projection whose design is inspired by the form of the numerical traces of the methods. This renders the analysis of the projections of the discretization errors simple and concise. By showing that these projections of the errors are bounded in terms of the distance between the solution and its projection, our studies of influence of the stabilization parameter are reduced to local analyses of approximation by the projection. We illustrate the technique on a specific HDG ...

Symmetry And Stability Of Homogeneous Flocks, 2010 Portland State University

#### Symmetry And Stability Of Homogeneous Flocks, J. J. P. Veerman

*Mathematics and Statistics Faculty Publications and Presentations*

The study of the movement of flocks, whether biological or technological, is motivated by the desire to understand the capability of coherent motion of a large number of agents that only receive very limited information. In a biological flock a large group of animals seek their course while moving in a more or less fixed formation. It seems reasonable that the immediate course is determined by leaders at the boundary of the flock. The others follow: what is their algorithm? The most popular technological application consists of cars on a one-lane road. The light turns green and the lead car ...

Optimal Control And Feedback Design Of State-Constrained Parabolic Systems In Uncertainty Conditions, 2010 Wayne State University

#### Optimal Control And Feedback Design Of State-Constrained Parabolic Systems In Uncertainty Conditions, Boris S. Mordukhovich

*Mathematics Research Reports*

The paper concerns minimax control problems for linear multidimensional parabolic systems with distributed uncertain perturbations and control functions acting in the Dirichlet boundary conditions. The underlying parabolic control system is functioning under hard/pointwise constraints on control and state variables. The main goal is to design a feedback control regulator that ensures the required state performance and robust stability under any feasible perturbations and minimize an energy-type functional under the worst perturbations from the given area. We develop a constructive approach to the minimax control design of constrained parabolic systems that is based on certain characteristic features of the parabolic ...

Modeling And Optimal Control Of A Nonlinear Dynamical System In Microbial Fed-Batch Fermentation Process, 2010 Shandong Institute of Business and Technology

#### Modeling And Optimal Control Of A Nonlinear Dynamical System In Microbial Fed-Batch Fermentation Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong, Enmin Feng

*Chongyang Liu*

The mathematical model and optimal control of microbial fed-batch fermentation is considered in this paper. Since it is decisive for increasing the productivity of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) to optimize the feeding rate of glycerol and the switching instants between the batch and feeding processes in the fermentation process, we propose a new nonlinear dynamical system to formulate the process. In the system, the switching instants are variable and the feeding rate of glycerol is regarded as the control function. Some important properties of the proposed system and its solution are then discussed. To maximize the concentration of 1,3-PD ...
