  • Numerical Solution of a Parabolic Equation with a Weakly Singular Positive-type Memory Term 

    Slodicka, Marian (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-06-04)
    We find a numerical solution of an initial and boundary value problem. This problem is a parabolic integro-differential equation whose integral is the convolution product of a positive-definite weakly singular kernel with ...
  • Semilinear Hyperbolic Systems in one Space Dimension with Strongly Singular Initial Data 

    Travers, Kirsten E. (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-08-28)
    In this article interactions of singularities in semilinear hyperbolic partial differential equations in R^2 are studied. Consider a simple non-linear system of three equations with derivatives of Dirac delta functions as ...
  • Partial Regularity for Flows of H-Surfaces 

    Wang, Changyou (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-11-20)
    This article studies regularity of weak solutions to the heat equation for H-surfaces. Under the assumption that the function H is Lipschitz and depends only on the first two components, the solution has regularity on its ...
  • Stable Multiple-layer Stationary Solutions of a Semilinear Parabolic Equation in Two-dimensional Domains 

    Nascimento, Arnaldo Simal do (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-12-01)
    We use Γ-convergence to prove existence of stable multiple-layer stationary solutions (stable patterns) to a reaction-diffusion equation. Given nested simple closed curves in R2, we give sufficient conditions on their ...
  • A Spectral Problem with an Indefinite Weight for an Elliptic System 

    Sango, Mamadou (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-11-29)
    We establish the completeness and the summability in the sense of Abel-Lidskij of the root vectors of a non-selfadjoint elliptic problem with an indefinite weight matrix and the angular distribution of its eigenvalues.
  • Solutions to Perturbed Eigenvalue Problems of the p-Laplacian in R(N) 

    Marcos, Joao B. do O (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-07-15)
    Using a variational approach, we investigate the existence of solutions for non-autonomous perturbations of the p-Laplacian eigenvalue problem Δpu=f(x,u) in R(N). Under the assumptions that the primitive F(x,u) of ...
  • Analysis of the Mushy Region in Conduction-convection Problems with Change of Phase 

    O'Leary, Mike (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-01-30)
    A conduction-convection problem with change of phase is studied, where convective motion of the liquid affects the change of phase. The mushy region is the portion of the system to which temperature and enthalpy do not ...
  • Stable Evaluation of Differential Operators and Linear and Nonlinear Multi-scale Filtering 

    Scherzer, Otmar (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-09-10)
    Diffusion processes create multi--scale analyses, which enable the generation of simplified pictures, where for increasing scale the image gets sketchier. In many practical applications the ``scaled image'' can be characterized ...
  • Numerical Calculation of Singularities for Ginzburg-Landau Functionals 

    Neuberger, John W.; Renka, Robert J. (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-06-18)
    We give results of numerical calculations of asymptotic behavior of critical points of a Ginzburg-Landau functional. We use both continuous and discrete steepest descent in connection with Sobolev gradients in order to ...
  • A Note on Very Weak P-Harmonic Mappings 

    Kinnunen, Juha; Zhou, Shulin (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-12-19)
    We prove a new a priori estimate for very weak p-harmonic mappings when p is close to two. This sheds some light on a conjecture posed by Iwaniec and Sbordone.

    Binding, Paul A.; Drabek, Pavel; Huang, Yin Xi (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-01-30)
    We study the role played by the indefinite weight function a(x) on the existence of positive solutions to the problem { −div (|∇u|p−2∇u) = λa(x)|u|p−2u + b(x)|u|γ−2u, x ∈ Ω, ∂u = 0, x ∈ ∂Ω , ∂n where Ω is a smooth ...

    Eloe, Paul W.; Henderson, Johnny (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-12-19)
    Values of λ are determined for which there exist solutions in a cone of the nth order nonlinear differential equation, u(n) = λa(t)f(u), 0 <t< 1, satisfying the multipoint boundary conditions, u(j)(ai) = 0, 0 ≤ j ≤ ni−1, ...

    Ignatyev, Alexander O. (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-10-29)
    A criterion of asymptotic stability for a linear oscillator with variable parameters is obtained. It is shown that this criterion is close to a necessary and sufficient conditions of asymptotic stability. An instability ...

    Chen, Chao-Nien; Tzeng, Shyuh-yaur (Texas State University, Department of Mathematics, 1997-03-26)
    Homoclinic orbits play an important role in the study of qualitative behavior of dynamical systems. Such kinds of orbits have been studied since the time of Poincare. In this paper, we discuss how to use variational methods ...
