Bloch Spectra For High Contrast Elastic Media, Jayasinghage Ruchira Nirmali Perera 2022 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Bloch Spectra For High Contrast Elastic Media, Jayasinghage Ruchira Nirmali Perera

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

The primary goal of this dissertation is to develop analytic representation formulas and power series to describe the band structure inside periodic elastic crystals made from high contrast inclusions. We use source free modes associated with structural spectra to represent the solution operator of the Lame' system inside phononic crystals. Then we obtain convergent power series for the Bloch wave spectrum using the representation formulas. An explicit bound on the convergence radius is given through the structural spectra of the inclusion array and the Dirichlet spectra of the inclusions. Sufficient conditions for the separation of spectral branches of the dispersion ...


Analytic Solution Of 1d Diffusion-Convection Equation With Varying Boundary Conditions, Małgorzata B. Glinowiecka-Cox 2022 Portland State University

Analytic Solution Of 1d Diffusion-Convection Equation With Varying Boundary Conditions, Małgorzata B. Glinowiecka-Cox

University Honors Theses

A diffusion-convection equation is a partial differential equation featuring two important physical processes. In this paper, we establish the theory of solving a 1D diffusion-convection equation, subject to homogeneous Dirichlet, Robin, or Neumann boundary conditions and a general initial condition. Firstly, we transform the diffusion-convection equation into a pure diffusion equation. Secondly, using a separation of variables technique, we obtain a general solution formula for each boundary type case, subject to transformed boundary and initial conditions. While eigenvalues in the cases of Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions can be constructed easily, the Robin boundary condition necessitates solving a transcendental algebraic ...

Interaction Of Two Long Waves In Shallow Water Using Hirota-Satsuma Model And Similarity Transformations, Ahmed Rashed 2022 Delta University for Science and Technology, Gamasa, Egypt

Interaction Of Two Long Waves In Shallow Water Using Hirota-Satsuma Model And Similarity Transformations, Ahmed Rashed

Delta University Scientific Journal

Nonlinear evolution equations in different dimensions are the corner stone in understanding numerous physical phenomena. The engineering applications comprise ocean waves, shallow water waves, plasma waves, fluid dynamics and many other applications. one of the most known models of evolution equations is Hirota-Satsuma coupled system of equation in (1+1)-dimensions which describes the interaction of two long waves in shallow water. As the system is coupled and nonlinear, the group transformation technique was employed to transform the system of partial differential equations (PDEs) into a simpler system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The resultant system is numerically solved using ...


Random Variable Shape Parameter Strategy To Minimize Error In Oscillatory Radial Basis Function Approximation Method For Solving Partial Differential Equations., Quinnlan Paul Aiken 2022 Ohio Northern University

Random Variable Shape Parameter Strategy To Minimize Error In Oscillatory Radial Basis Function Approximation Method For Solving Partial Differential Equations., Quinnlan Paul Aiken

ONU Student Research Colloquium

Approximation of the functions which are the solutions of complex or difficult problems is a worthwhile endeavor. This has resulted in many ways to effectively approximate the solution of the partial differential equations. One such way to approximate the solution of the partial differential equation is Oscillatory radial basis function method. This method can approximate the solution of the partial differential equation well however relies heavily on a “shape parameter” to achieve acceptable error. Choosing this parameter was traditionally done through a trial-and-error method. Selecting shape parameters in a more analytical way has been desired. One such method is the ...


On The Consistency Of Alternative Finite Difference Schemes For The Heat Equation, Tran April 2022 Augustana College

On The Consistency Of Alternative Finite Difference Schemes For The Heat Equation, Tran April

Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal

While the well-researched Finite Difference Method (FDM) discretizes every independent variable into algebraic equations, Method of Lines discretizes all but one dimension, leaving an Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) in the remaining dimension. That way, ODE's numerical methods can be applied to solve Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). In this project, Linear Multistep Methods and Method of Lines are used to numerically solve the heat equation. Specifically, the explicit Adams-Bashforth method and the implicit Backward Differentiation Formulas are implemented as Alternative Finite Difference Schemes. We also examine the consistency of these schemes.


The Gelfand Problem For The Infinity Laplacian, Fernando Charro, Byungjae Son, Peiyong Wang 2022 Wayne State University

The Gelfand Problem For The Infinity Laplacian, Fernando Charro, Byungjae Son, Peiyong Wang

Mathematics Faculty Research Publications

We study the asymptotic behavior as p → ∞ of the Gelfand problem

−Δpu = λeu in Ω ⊂ Rn, u = 0 on ∂Ω.

Under an appropriate rescaling on u and λ, we prove uniform convergence of solutions of the Gelfand problem to solutions of

min{|∇u|−Λeu, −Δu} = 0 in Ω, u = 0 on ∂Ω.

We discuss existence, non-existence, and multiplicity of solutions of the limit problem in terms of Λ.


Asymptotic Mean-Value Formulas For Solutions Of General Second-Order Elliptic Equations, Pablo Blanc, Fernando Charro, Juan J. Manfredi, Julio D. Rossi 2022 University of Jyväskylä

Asymptotic Mean-Value Formulas For Solutions Of General Second-Order Elliptic Equations, Pablo Blanc, Fernando Charro, Juan J. Manfredi, Julio D. Rossi

Mathematics Faculty Research Publications

We obtain asymptotic mean-value formulas for solutions of second-order elliptic equations. Our approach is very flexible and allows us to consider several families of operators obtained as an infimum, a supremum, or a combination of both infimum and supremum, of linear operators. The families of equations that we consider include well-known operators such as Pucci, Issacs, and k-Hessian operators.


A Spatially And Temporally Second Order Method For Solving Parabolic Interface Problems, Kumudu Gamage, Yan Peng 2022 Old Dominion University

A Spatially And Temporally Second Order Method For Solving Parabolic Interface Problems, Kumudu Gamage, Yan Peng

College of Sciences Posters

Parabolic interface problems have many applications in physics and biology, such as hyperthermia treatment of cancer, underground water flow, and food engineering. Here we present an algorithm for solving two-dimensional parabolic interface problems where the coefficient and the forcing term have a discontinuity across the interface. The Crank-Nicolson scheme is used for time discretization, and the direct immersed interface method is used for spatial discretization. The proposed method is second order in both space and time for both solution and gradients in maximum norm.


A Meshless Approach To Computational Pharmacokinetics, Anthony Matthew Khoury 2022 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

A Meshless Approach To Computational Pharmacokinetics, Anthony Matthew Khoury

PhD Dissertations and Master's Theses

The meshless method is an incredibly powerful technique for solving a variety of problems with unparalleled accuracy and efficiency. The pharmacokinetic problem of transdermal drug delivery (TDDD) is one such topic and is of significant complexity. The locally collocated meshless method (LCMM) is developed in solution to this topic. First, the meshless method is formulated to model this transport phenomenon and is then validated against an analytical solution of a pharmacokinetic problem set, to demonstrate this accuracy and efficiency. The analytical solution provides a locus by which convergence behavior are evaluated, demonstrating the super convergence of the locally collocated meshless ...


Existence And Uniqueness Of Minimizers For A Nonlocal Variational Problem, Michael Pieper 2022 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Existence And Uniqueness Of Minimizers For A Nonlocal Variational Problem, Michael Pieper

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Nonlocal modeling is a rapidly growing field, with a vast array of applications and connections to questions in pure math. One goal of this work is to present an approachable introduction to the field and an invitation to the reader to explore it more deeply. In particular, we explore connections between nonlocal operators and classical problems in the calculus of variations. Using a well-known approach, known simply as The Direct Method, we establish well-posedness for a class of variational problems involving a nonlocal first-order differential operator. Some simple numerical experiments demonstrate the behavior of these problems for specific choices of ...


Inverse Boundary Value Problems For Polyharmonic Operators With Non-Smooth Coefficients, Landon Gauthier 2022 University of Kentucky

Inverse Boundary Value Problems For Polyharmonic Operators With Non-Smooth Coefficients, Landon Gauthier

Theses and Dissertations--Mathematics

We consider inverse boundary problems for polyharmonic operators and in particular, the problem of recovering the coefficients of terms up to order one. The main interest of our result is that it further relaxes the regularity required to establish uniqueness. The proof relies on an averaging technique introduced by Haberman and Tataru for the study of an inverse boundary value problem for a second order operator.

(R1491) Numerical Solution Of The Time-Space Fractional Diffusion Equation With Caputo Derivative In Time By A-Polynomial Method, Saeid Abbasbandy, Jalal Hajishafieiha

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

In this paper, a novel type of polynomial is defined which is equipped with an auxiliary parameter a. These polynomials are a combination of the Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind. The approximate solution of each equation is assumed as the sum of these polynomials and then, with the help of the collocation points, the unknown coefficients of each polynomial, as well as auxiliary parameter, is obtained optimally. Now, by placing the optimal value of a in polynomials, the polynomials are obtained without auxiliary parameter, which is the restarted step of the present method. The time discretization is performed on ...

(R1480) Heat Transfer In Peristaltic Motion Of Rabinowitsch Fluid In A Channel With Permeable Wall, Mahadev M. Channakote, Dilipkumar V. Kalse

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

This paper is intended to investigate the effect of heat transfer on the peristaltic flow of Rabinowitsch fluid in a channel lined with a porous material. The Navier -Stokes equation governs the channel's flow, and Darcy's law describes the permeable boundary. The Rabinowitsch fluid model's governing equations are solved by utilizing approximations of the long-wavelength and small number of Reynolds. The expressions for axial velocity, temperature distribution, pressure gradient, friction force, stream function are obtained. The influence on velocity, pressure gradient, friction force, and temperature on pumping action of different physical parameters is explored via graphs.


(R1494) Approximate Solutions Of The Telegraph Equation, Ilija Jegdić 2021 Texas Southern University

(R1494) Approximate Solutions Of The Telegraph Equation, Ilija Jegdić

Applications and Applied Mathematics: An International Journal (AAM)

In this paper the initial boundary value problems for the linear telegraph equation in one and two space dimensions are considered. To find approximate solutions, a recently proposed optimization-free approach that utilizes artificial neural networks with one hidden layer is used, in which the connecting weights from the input layer to the hidden layer are chosen randomly and the weights from the hidden layer to the output layer are found by solving a system of linear equations. One of the advantages of this method, in comparison to the usual discretization methods for the two-dimensional linear telegraph equation, is that this ...

Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have unique atom-like properties. In this work, the electronic states of quantum dot grown on a GaAs substrate has been studied. The analytical expressions of electron wave function for cone-like quantum dot on the semiconductor surface has been obtained and the governing eigen value equation has been solved, thereby obtaining the dependence of ground state energy on radius and height of the cone-shaped -dots. In addition, the energy of eigenvalues is computed for various length and thickness of the wetting layer (WL). We discovered that the eigen functions and energies are nearly associated with the GaAs ...
