Pranesh Kumar1

Abstract

Copula functions are used as an alternative means of modeling and simulating multivariate data. Copula function is precisely a multivariate distribution function on marginally uniform random variables on the unit interval. Copula parameter measures both the linear and nonlinear dependence and provides an alternative to the dependence measures like linear correlation coefficient. Copula functions have played an important role in statistics, insurance, finance, economics, survival analysis, image processing and engineering applications. In this paper, we will describe the copula functions, their properties, simulations and examples of copula applications from different scientific areas.


Relativistic rotation --- how does the energy vary with angular momentum?

Manuel Fiolhais1

1University of Coimbra, Department of Physics, Portugal

Abstract

This work is about relativistic rotations around a principal axis and results from a fruitful collaboration between physicists (M. Fiolhais and J. Güémez) and a mathematician (L.A. Fernández). The relativistic rotation, including the inertia and the moment of inertia of rotating bodies, and the rotation equation, has deserved some interest, certainly due to the qualitative differences in comparison with the classical situation. We describe the relativistic rotations through the relativistic rotation dynamical equations derived in the framework of the the Hamiltonian-Lagrangian formalism. We consider a rigid solid body of volume $\Omega,$ and constant density, $\rho,$ rotating with angular velocity $\omega$ around a principal axis. Differently from classical mechanics, now the inertia of the body is angular velocity dependent, and it is given by $$ {\cal M}(\omega) = \rho \int_{\Omega} \gamma\left( {\omega \, r(x)} \right) {\rm d}x\, , $$ where $r(x)$ is the distance from point $x$ to the rotation axis and $\gamma(v)= \left[ 1+\left( \frac{v}{c}\right)^2 \right]^{-1/2}$ is the usual relativistic factor. Similarly, the moment of inertia is also angular velocity dependent: $$ I(\omega) = \rho \int_{\Omega} r^2(x)\gamma\left( {\omega r(x)} \right) {\rm d}x\, . $$ As in non-relativistic mechanics, the angular momentum is $$ J=I \omega \, , $$ and $$ \frac{ {\rm d} J}{{\rm d} t} = \Gamma^{\rm ext} , $$ where the right hand side is the external torque. A central part of this work is to show that the following equality holds: $$ \frac{ {\rm d} \left[{\cal M} (\omega)c^2\right] }{ {\rm d}\, J } = \omega\, . \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ (1) $$ We present the mathematical proof of this equation which, physically speaking, relates the variation of energy with the angular momentum variation, throught the angular velocity. Though there is a counterpart in classical physics, Equation (1), to the best of our knowledge, has never been shown in the literature, until our derivation of it published in a recent issue of Europhysics Letters [1]. We show its usefulness by discussing some examples of relativistic rotating systems that illustrate how special relativity formalism, including Equation (1), deals with rotational processes of systems acted upon by external torques, including cases when dissipative forces are present. $$ $$ [1] J.

Abstract

The article examines the issue of the effectiveness of goods shipment inside the country. Progress in the methods and principles of managing transportation processes allows to increase the speed of delivery, improve the quality of service, and regulate transport tariffs. Considering the current state of Russia with its vast territory, a wide variety of natural and climatic and economic-geographical conditions, it can be noted that it needs a clear logistics system to link production procedures. The aim of the study is the formation of a developed regional transport and logistics system. To achieve this goal, we consider two main tasks: the identification of regions in terms of the priority of design and location of logistics centers; optimization of logistic schemes of cargo delivery. Creation of a developed regional transport and logistics system is the most important condition for the economic development of the country, as well as the development of interregional economic interaction, which will increase the social and economic potential of the regions. Increasing the economic efficiency of commodity exchange is achieved both through the effective organization of a system of interregional logistics centers, and through the development of interregional economic interaction.

Abstract

The work researches the influence of parent thundercloud charge structure and atmospheric electric field (AEF) perturbations on the process of tornadoes and downbursts formation on the basis of electrohydrodynamic equations system. The authors first have derived a one-parameter formula describing the process of thundercloud recharge, i.e. transition of dipole charge structure to tripole one. Thundercloud vorticity increase, i.e. transforming thundercloud into the tornado-cyclone, during the recharge process is shown to be possible due to electromagnetic factors, not Coriolis forces. Besides that, dipole and tripole structures of the cloud charge can create necessary conditions for correspondingly downburst and tornado formation. The authors have presented the electrohydrodynamic model of downburst formation from the dipole thundercloud, have determined velocity and AEF magnitude fields near the burst. The work researches the role of electrohydrodynamic pressure in the process of tornado formation from the tripole cloud. Using the formula of AEF perturbations, the authors have solved the problem of tornado funnel motion and theoretically explained frequently observed “hill” growth on the water surface toward the descending funnel. It is shown that strong AEF perturbations can lead to the funnel descent as well as its hang at some height above the ground.

Abstract

This article investigates the increase of traction-coupling properties of propellers, patency of machine-tractor units and decrease of soil compaction. For a propulsor equipped with anti-skid devices, the slippage process is formed due to factors of soil compression by the soil-tread and shear of the soil by tire hooks. With the decrease in the number of detachable hooks, the period when the first hook disengaged and the second has not yet entered in interaction with the ground, increases. At the moment, traction and coupling properties of the wheel are formed only due to the tire hooks. When the detachable hook engages with the soil, the traction capacity of the wheel is made up of the forces of shear of soil "bricks" sandwiched between tire hooks and the forces of soil deformation by detachable hooks. As a result of integrating the dependence of the shear stress and deformation of the soil, a formula was obtained to determine the tangential traction force of the tractor. If the skidding of the wheel assembly depends on the pulling force, then the drag force from the anti-skid device. Using the known dependencies of the slippage of wheeled propellers, dependences are obtained to determine the slippage of the propulsion unit with the anti-skid device. With the increase in the number of anti-skid devices on the wheel, slippage is reduced, however, according to the research, the time required for the assembly and disassembly of the device reduces the interchangeability of the wheel assembly. We calculated he number of anti-skid devices at which the maximum exchange capacity will be reached. The penetration depths at which the maximum efficiency of the wheel assembly running system will be reached are obtained and the results are tabulated.


Integrable dissipative dynamical systems with three degrees of freedom

Maxim V. Shamolin1

1Lomonosov Moscow State University, Institute of Mechanics, Russian Federation

Abstract

In many problems of dynamics, there appear mechanical systems with three-dimensional manifolds as position spaces. Tangent bundles of such manifolds naturally become phase spaces of such systems. For example, study of a four-dimensional generalized spherical pendulum in a nonconservative force field leads to a dynamic system on the tangent bundle of a three-dimensional sphere, and the metric of special form on it is induced by an additional symmetry group. In this case, dynamic systems describing the motion of such a pendulum possess alternating dissipation and the complete list of first integrals consists of transcendental functions that can be expressed in terms of a finite combination of elementary functions. The class of problems about the motion of a point on a three-dimensional surface is also known; the metric on it is induced by the Euclidean metric of the ambient space. In some cases of systems with dissipation, it is also possible to find a complete list of first integrals; the list consists of transcendental functions. The results obtained are especially important in the aspect of the presence of just a nonconservative force field in the system.

Abstract

A modified dual method for solving an elastic problem with a crack extending to the outer boundary is considered. The method is based on a modified Lagrange functional. The convergence of the method is investigated in detail under a natural assumption of $H^1$ - regularity of the solution to the crack problem. Basic duality relation for the primal and dual problems is proposed.

Abstract

Quantum Information is a quantum resource being advised as a useful tool to set up information processing. Physical components considered are normally two-level systems, but their combination and their entangling interactions become in a complex dynamics on $U(2^n)$ required to be modeled to reproduce certain processing operations useful to develop quantum algorithms. $SU(2)$ decomposition is a mathematical mechanism to translate the dynamics from $U(2^{2d})$ into $U(1)^{2(d-1)-1} \times SU(2)^{2(d-1)}$. Then, still the two-qubit case becomes relevant because it is the core of $SU(2)$ decomposition by Hamiltonians as: $$ H_h = \sum_{k=1}^3 J_k {\sigma_1}_k {\sigma_2}_k -{B_1}_h {\sigma_1}_h-{B_2}_h {\sigma_2}_h $$ (expressed for magnetic qubits despite other physical systems fits into equivalent Hamiltonians) into a direct sum of momentary two-level quantum information subspaces (with dynamics on $SU(2)$ group) as equivalent quantum resources to the direct physical elements (with dynamics on $U(4)$ group): $$ H_h(t) = \bigoplus_{k=1}^2 H_{k,h} \rightarrow U_h(t) = \bigoplus_{k=1}^2 {s_h}_{k} $$ where control is achieved as driven operations on physical elements of the setup, but reflected on certain pure quantum information states as a grammar. This work presents a comparative benchmark of numerical approaches to address these problems with time-dependent fields ${B_i}_h$ (more affordable technologically and free of resonant effects) together with some useful outcomes for the dynamics in the context of quantum information processing.

Abstract

The topic of wetting has received very much interest from both fundamental and applied points of view. It plays an important role in many industrial processes, such as oil recovery, liquid coating, lubrication, printing, and spray quenching. Boron sheets electron deficiency prevent it to form a graphene-like structure nevertheless it have been predicted that they are stable with triangular lattices and hexagonal vacancies and in recent studies of a cluster containing 36 boron atoms a planar C6v structure have been observed and named it borophene. After that, two-dimensional (2D) boron sheets (i.e., borophene) with a hexagonal structure has been grown on Ag(111) crystal. Previous studies on graphene shows hydrophobic with contact angles between 95° to 100° and because of graphene and borophene structure similarity it is expected that borophene will also exhibits hydrophobic behaviour. Therefore, we perform a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation to calculate the contact angle and define hydrophilic or hydrophobic characteristic of borophene surface with water. This was done by LAMMPS molecular dynamics simulator package. We use TIP3P model with long-range Columbic interaction for water molecules and ReaxFF force field to show interaction of boron atoms in borophene and also for interaction between surface and water nanodroplet. The obtained MD simulation results show that a borophene surface is hydrophobic. Moreover, the obtained MD results show that the contact angle of water nanodroplet on a borophene surface is considerably influenced by the temperature variations, i.e. as the temperature increases, the contact angle decreases and the surface becomes less hydrophobic. Finally, we show that contact angle of water nanodroplet on a borophene decrease with increasing nanodroplet size.


Application of a hybrid model for the numerical study of the generation of runaway electrons during the formation of nanosecond and sub-nanosecond high-pressure gas discharge

Vasily Lisenkov1

Abstract

Nowadays, the generation of runaway electrons in high-pressure gases is one of the most studied topics in gas discharge physics. The most advanced method of modeling this process is the combination of the Monte Carlo method and the particle-in-cell method (PIC MC method). However, even in a two-dimensional formulation, this approach requires very large computational resources. This is explained by the fact that the numerical density of the runaway electrons is several orders of magnitude lower than the plasma (slow) electrons. Therefore, it is necessary to take into account a large number of particles. Using of a hybrid model can significantly reduce computing resources. In hybrid model, PIC MC method is used only for calculation of runaway electrons, and the standard hydrodynamic approach is used for calculation of plasma electrons. The paper analyzes the details of the application of the hybrid model for calculation of the formation of high-pressure gas discharge in conditions where the transition of electrons into runaway mode is possible. The results of calculation of kinetics of electrons emitted from a micro-spike on the cathode during the formation of the cathode layer of nanosecond and sub-nanosecond high-pressure gas discharge are presented. The conditions of transition of electrons into runaway mode at this stage and their influence on the further formation of the gas discharge are analyzed.

Abstract

Amorphous alloys based on rare-earth metals are of great interest due to their unique magnetic properties. In this work we report on the Monte Carlo simulation of magnetic properties of amorphous alloys of Re-Tb and Re-Gd systems in the wide compositional region. Using the Monte Carlo method in the frame of the Heisenberg model, the computer simulation of magnetic properties of Re-Tb and Re-Gd amorphous alloys was performed. For pure amorphous Tb and Re-Tb amorphous alloys the model Hamiltonian contained two terms responsible for nearest-neighbour exchange interaction between the Tb ions with the mean value J0 and for random single-ion anisotropy D. In the models of the Re-Tb amorphous alloys the spin-glass-like phase transition was also observed. With increasing concentration of Tb atoms, the transition temperature linearly increases, which is in a good agreement with the experimental results. The spin-glass transition is observed only above the percolation threshold in this system, i.e. at x>13 at. % Tb. For pure amorphous Gd and Re-Gd amorphous alloys the model Hamiltonian contained two terms responsible for ferromagnetic exchange interaction J1 between the nearest-neighbour Gd ions and for antiferromagnetic exchange interaction J2 between the Gd ions that were in the second coordination sphere. In the models of the Re-Gd amorphous alloys the spin-glass phase transition was also observed. With increasing concentration of Gd atoms, the spin-glass transition temperature linearly increases, which is in a good agreement with the experimental results. The magnetization relaxation after switching-off the external magnetic field at different values of D/J0 (for Re-Tb alloys) J1/J2 (for Re-Gd alloys) was studied. For amorphous Tb and Re-Tb amorphous alloys the magnetization relaxation goes on in two stages. In the first stage, the magnetization decreases abruptly by a definite magnitude ΔMZ. At this stage the magnetic moments reorients to the directions determined by the random anisotropy axes. At the second stage the magnetization decreases very slowly according to the logarithmic law. At this stage the magnetic moments of Tb atoms rotate by small angles due to competition of exchange interaction and random anisotropy. In the models of amorphous Gd and Re-Gd amorphous alloys, the jump of the magnetization after the switching-off the external magnetic field is not observed. Thus, in these systems the relaxation is one-stage. The time dependence of magnetization is not logarithmic, but is described by the lineal combination of two decreasing exponential functions.

Abstract

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is a very effective minimally invasive therapy to manage leg varicosities. Modeling of radiative and thermal processes in the case of EVLA assumes taking into account the conduction of heat from the laser tip, thermal radiation from the laser tip, and thermal sources caused by the absorbed energy of the laser light. Moreover, at the blood fraction temperature close to 100$^\mathrm{o}$C, an important contribution to the heat transfer occurs due to the formation and convection of vapour bubbles. The paper of A.A. Poluektova et al (Laser Med. Sci., 2014) proposes to simulate the presence of bubbles by varying the coefficient of thermal conductivity. Namely, in the area inside a vein, if the temperature reaches 95$^\mathrm{o}$C or higher, the coefficient of thermal conductivity increases by 200 times. The last value is adjusted experimentally, which ensures a good consistency of the model considered in the work of A.A. Poluektova et al (Laser Med. Sci., 2014 ). Because of the spatially propagating sharp jump in thermal conductivity, the corresponding initial boundary value problem is a free-boundary one of the Stefan type. As usually, such a problem can be approximated by a relaxed phase field model with the smoothed interface. To describe the process of endovenous laser ablation, the system of heat and radiation transfer equations with moving source is chosen. The conventional non-stationary normalized $P_1$ approximation of the radiative and heat transfer model describing radiative, conductive, and convective contributions is considered in a bounded domain $\Omega \subset \mathbf{R}^3$: $$ \partial\theta/\partial t - \mathrm{div}\,(a\nabla\theta) + \mathbf v \cdot \nabla \theta - b\kappa_a \varphi = u_1,\; $$ $$ -\alpha \Delta \varphi + \kappa_a\varphi = u_2,\; x\in\Omega,\ t\in (0,T). $$ Here, $\theta$ is the normalized temperature, $\varphi$ the normalized radiation intensity averaged over all directions, $\textbf{v}$ a given divergence free velocity field, and $u_{1,2}=u_{1,2}(x,t)$ describe the intensities of heat and radiation sources moving along a given trajectory. Parameters $a$, $b$, $\kappa_a$, and $\alpha$ describe the radiation and thermal properties of the medium. Moreover, $a=a(x,\theta)$, $b= b(x)$, $\kappa_a= \kappa_a(x)$, and $\alpha= \alpha(x)$. Due to the dependence of the coefficient $a$ on the temperature, we will simulate a high thermal conductivity at the points of the blood fraction where temperature reaches 95$^\mathrm{o}$C The following boundary conditions on $\Gamma := \partial \Omega$ and the initial condition at $t=0$ are assumed: $$ a\partial_n \theta + \beta(\theta - \theta_b)|_\Gamma = 0,\;\; \alpha\partial_n \varphi + \gamma\varphi |_\Gamma = 0, \quad \theta|_{t=0} = \theta_0. $$ Here, the boundary functions, $\theta_{b}$, $\beta$, $\gamma$, and the initial function, $\theta_0$, are given. We note the essential nonlinearity of the problem caused by the dependence of the thermal conductivity on temperature. In the current work, theoretical and numerical analysis of this problem are fulfilled. The numerical examples simulated the process of endovenous laser ablation are presented.


Phase Ordering in Some Complex Spin Systems

Varsha Banerjee1

Abstract

Many magnetic and dielectric solids are well-represented by (i) the random field Ising model with conserved order parameter (C-RFIM) and (ii) the Ising model with dipolar interactions (IM+DI). We perform deep quenches to study the kinetics of domain growth in these spin systems. In the C-RFIM, (a) the correlation function exhibits dynamical scaling but is not robust with respect to the disorder $\Delta$; (b) at early times the domains follow algebraic growth with a disorder-dependent exponent: $L(t,\Delta)\sim t^{1/z(\Delta)}$. At late times, there is a cross-over to logarithmic growth $L(t,\Delta) \sim (\ln t)^{1/\varphi}$, where $\varphi$ is the disorder-independent logarithmic exponent. In the IM+DI, (a) there is emergence of columnar domains along $z$-axis (Ising axis) with a transient periodicity in the $xy$-plane; (b) there are anisotropic growth laws: $\ell_{\rho}(t) \sim t^{\phi}$; $\ell_z(t) \sim t^{\psi}$, where $\vec{\rho}= (x,y)$ and $\ell$ is the characteristic length scale. Our results explain experimental observations in a wide range of complex systems and have important technological implications.

Abstract

The dynamic interaction of multilayer woven barriers of aramid fibers with various forms of impactors is considered, and the processes of energy dissipation are investigated. Experimental investigation of the interface friction coefficients is performed under the conditions of the transverse compression for different weaving types of fabrics. The required range for the compressive loads is estimated by the use of FE-modelling of impact loading of the multi-layer woven barriers. Static and dynamic friction coefficients are determined for all possible combinations of textile-textile interfaces with plain and four types of twill weaving patterns. It is obtained that the interface static friction coefficient depends on the weaving types of the fabric layers. Moreover, it cannot be always derived from the averaged values of friction coefficients for each weaving type on the interface. For the higher values of the transversal compression the experimental equipment is proposed and designed for pulling out a textile layer from a free multilayer structure of fabrics under the conditions of controllable transverse compression loading. The numerical modelling of the load distribution in the tested fabric layer is accomplished which allows us to estimate the irregularity of the transversal pressure in the specimen and to correct the experimental results for friction coefficients. The finite elements models of different complexity for fabrics of five weaving types and for their combinations are constructed. Advantages and disadvantages for different approaches to aramid fabric modeling are compared. The case of a three-dimensional plain-base weaving was considered separately. Verification of the models is carried out by full-scale ballistic experiments, and the simulation error is estimated. The contribution of various mechanisms to the energy dissipation of the impactor is estimated. The influence of the placement of layers with different weaving type in the woven barriers on the impactor velocity after the rupture is analysed numerically. The advantages of the particular combinations of weaving type placement in comparison with the uniform barriers with the same number of layers is shown. The research is carried out using the equipment of the shared research facilities of HPC computing resources at Lomonosov Moscow State University. The work was carried out in accordance with the scientific research plan of the Institute of Mechanics Lomonosov Moscow State University.


Fundamentals of the theory of compressible oscillating ether

Nikolai Magnitskii1

1Federal Research Center Informatic and Control, Institute for Sistems Analysis, Nonlinear and Chaotic Dynamics, Russian Federation

Abstract

In the paper, ether is considered as a dense compressible inviscid oscillating medium in three-dimensional Euclidean space, having a density of ether and a velocity vector of propagation of density perturbations at each instant of time. Ether can be described by two nonlinear equations, where the first equation is the continuity equation, and the second is the ether momentum conservation law. It is shown that the consequences of the system of these two equations are: a generalized nonlinear system of Maxwell-Lorentz equations that is invariant under Galilean transformations, the linearization of which leads to the classical system of Maxwell-Lorentz equations; laws of Bio-Savar-Laplas, Ampère and Coulomb; representations for Planck's and fine structure constants; formulas for the electron, proton and neutron in the form of wave solutions of the system of two ether equations for which the calculated values of their internal energies, masses and magnetic moments coincide, with an accuracy to fractions of a percent, with their experimental values, anomalous from the point of view of modern science.


On asymptotic structure of three-body absolutely continuous spectrum eigenfunctions for the scattering problem of charged quantum particles

Sergey B. Levin1

1St.-Petersburg State University , Faculty of Physics, Department of Higher Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, Russian Federation

Abstract

We study the quantum scattering problem of three three-dimensional charged particles involving pair potentials of Coulomb attraction in the framework of the diffraction approach. The method was offered earlier in the works [1]-[2] for the system of three one-dimensional neutral quantum particles and was developed further in the works [3]-[6] for the systems of few one-dimensional and three-dimensional like-charged quantum particles. In the present work we obtain the unified contribution of pair excited states to the asymptotics (at infinity in configuration space) of the three-body absolutely continuous spectrum eigenfunctions. The first steps in the direction were already made in the work [7]. Note that it is the case that is most interesting and rich from the physical point of view, as it is connected in particular with re-clustering of charged quantum complexes. \vskip1cm References [1] V.S.Buslaev, S.P.Merkuriev, S.P.Salikov, On diffraction character of scattering in quantum system of three onedimensional particles.

Abstract

In this paper, we explore theoretically the flow instabilities occur in thin liquid films of a perturbation flow using in Euler equation in Cartesian coordinate system. We derived the shallow water equations describing the motion of thin liquid film on the rotating cylinder surface. The governing equations have been constructed by using the usual multi-scale asymptotic expansion methods. The hodograph method is used to investigate the behavior of solutions of the liquid layer motion on the outer cylinder surface. It is found that, when the liquid layer located on the outer surface of the cylinder, the behaviors of solutions are periodic perturbations. The modelling results showed that the initial perturbations can develop in the unstable media. The diagrams are drawn to illustrate the physical properties of the exact solutions, and indicate their stability and bifurcation by using various techniques.

Abstract

Strong and stable financial sector is a primary element for the inflow of investments and increasing liquidity in the economic system of a state striving for a developed economy. The practice of several previous years has shown the presence of certain factors of the instability of the Russian financial sector. The most important among the fundamental factors of the instability of the national financial sector is the problem of ensuring the monetary obligations of financial institutions, which leads credit institutions and investment institutions at best to introduce external management from the Central Bank, and in the worst case to bankruptcy. Traditionally, the main focus in assessing the quality of assets of financial institutions is to determine the market (fair) value of tangible assets, namely financial assets and real estate. However, recent events that have occurred with large Russian credit institutions have revealed shortcomings in this approach. First of all, because the objects of intellectual property and other intangible assets are either undervalued or overvalued. Based on these facts, a team of researchers developed and presented a mathematical model that allows an alternative valuation of intangible intellectual assets in the ownership structure of financial institutions. The model was applied in the analysis of the activities of individual financial institutions operating within the national economic system.

A study of the influence of electric fields on the emission spectra of atoms is a topical problem of modern theoretical and experimental physics. Electric fields lead to changes in all spectral characteristics of atoms, and an analysis of these characteristics enables us to understand processes taking place in emitting media. In this work, the software package StarkD for calculating the emission spectra of atoms in an alternating circularly polarized electric field is presented. The emission spectra are calculated by the numerical method based on diagonalization of the energy matrix of an atom in an electric field. This method is free from limitations of perturbation theory and valid in wide ranges of the electric field frequency and strength. The package StarkD allows us to calculate the positions of the Stark components of atomic spectral lines as well as the transition probabilities, lifetimes, line intensities, and profiles of spectral lines of atoms in the electric field. The package capabilities are demonstrated by the example of calculating the emission spectra of He, Ne, Ar, and Kr atoms in the electric field. The calculations have allowed us to establish a number of interesting theoretical regularities and to analyze mechanisms of the formation of atomic spectra in the electric field. The package StarkD can be used in solving problems of gas discharge physics, low-temperature plasma, laser physics, and in technologies of creation of new radiation sources.

Abstract

Leonid Kagan$^1$, Peter Gordon$^2$, Gregory Sivashinsky$^1$ $^1$ Sackler Faculty of Exact Sciences, School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv 69978, Israel.\\ $^2$ Department of Mathematical Sciences, Kent State University, Kent, OH 44242, USA. Successful numerical simulations of deflagration-to-detonation transition began fifteen years ago. Since that time many theoretical problems of the transition have been solved. However, numerical studies per se suffer from a serious unsolved issue relating to resolution. It is generally agreed that a finer grid yields more accurate results. Yet, a finer grid demands a more powerful computational facility with larger internal memory as well as CPU-time. The question is how fine the grid should be for the results to be reliable. The single way to answer this question is to conduct resolution tests. Generally, one repeats simulations with a grid twice finer than the original one. If the results obtained differ less than 2-3% one assumes that the resolution is acceptable. This approach however does not guarantee the convergence of the numerical scheme employed. The present study is concerned with the following practical points: (i) how to prove the convergence of the solution (ii) how to estimate the resolution required, (iii) why the degree of convergence differs from the degree of approximation.

Abstract

Influence of random migration on population growth of biological system I.V. Derevich, A.A. Panova Faculty of Fundamental Sciences, Department of Applied Mathematics, Moscow State Technical University by N.E. Bauman (MSTU), 2-ya Baumanskaya Str. 5 (main Building), Moscow, 105005, Russian Federation A new approach is proposed to analyze the effect of random noise on biological systems with explosive behavior. The growth of the population of biological object, for example, a viral infection as a result of migration to an region with favorable conditions for reproduction of the virus, is considered. In this case, the initial concentration of the virus in the considered region can be equal to zero. The rate of reproduction of the population is proportional to the square of the concentration, and the rate of extinction is proportional to the concentration of the population. The diffusion of microorganisms from the environment takes place in this region. On the boundary of the region we establish condition for mass transfer. As a result of averaging over the volume of the restricted region, we obtain an equation for the average concentration of microobjects within the region. In the obtained equation migration flux is proportional to the concentration difference in the region and environment. We obtained an analytical solution of the concentration equation, in which we taking into account the migration of microorganisms across the boundary of the region. It is shown that there is a critical concentration beyond the boundary of the region, exceeding which causes an explosive growth in the concentration inside the region. In real biological systems there is no complete determinism in their behavior. There are always fluctuations in the parameters of vital activity of organisms, or random movement of the microobjects. The effect of fluctuations in the concentration of microorganisms in the environment is investigated as a result of two approaches. In the first case we carry out an analytical study based on the probability density function of the concentration of microorganisms in the restricted region. On the basis of the method of functional differentiation a closed equation for the density distribution function of the probability of the concentration inside the region is obtained. On the basis of a closed system of equations for the first and second moments the effect of concentration fluctuations outside the region on the dynamics of population growth is studied. The qualitative difference in the behavior of a system with an explosion in a random environment is illustrated. Concentration fluctuations outside the region can lead to explosive growth even if the averaged concentration outside the region is noticeably below the critical level. In the deterministic case, the concentration in this situation is always finite and reaches a stationary value. The second approach to the study of the influence of random fluctuations of concentration outside the region is based on a direct numerical solution of the system of stochastic ordinary differential equations. The numerical algorithm is based on the Euler-Maruyama integration. It is shown that there are actual realizations in which a random concentration fluctuates near a stationary value found from an analytical solution. On the other hand, random trajectories in the concentration space are observed, which lead to an explosive character of population growth. Thus, we illustrate the principal possibility of explosive behavior of a dynamical system in a random environment, when in a deterministic case the explosion is not realized.

On the Discretization of Continuous-Time Chaotic Systems for Digital Implementations

Ashraf Zaher1

Abstract

Recently, many continuous-time chaotic systems were synthesized using microcontrollers and FPGAs. This requires applying mathematical discretization to convert integration into recursion. Depending on the approximation algorithms, the speed of the numerical processors, and the number of bits used to represent data, different accuracies and stabilities could be obtained. This article explores the conditions necessary to faithfully generate signals that reflect the true behavior of the chaotic systems, while maintaining the same values for their Lyapunov exponents. This is very important for chaos control and synchronization, especially for applications in secure communication that rely on digital cryptography. The Lorenz system and the Duffing oscillator are investigated to illustrate the effect of having autonomous versus nonautonomous structures. In addition, the Nosé-Hoover dynamical model is investigated to detect the relationship between agility and numerical accuracy. The obtained results prove that identical deterministic chaotic systems can behave differently, for the same set of initial conditions, depending on the discretization algorithm. This added sensitivity requires careful design of the mathematical models required for digital implementations of chaotic systems. The article concludes with useful recommendations for best practices in designing, synthesizing, and implementing digital chaotic systems, while commenting on the best compromise between mathematical complexity and numerical accuracy.


Design of Model-Based Gain Scheduling Controllers for Nonlinear Systems

Ashraf Zaher1

1American University of Kuwait, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Kuwait

Abstract

The design of controllers for nonlinear systems has always been a challenge due to their complex dynamic structures that have ill-defined models with inherent uncertainties. This article investigates the implementation of PID controllers, using a gain scheduling technique that allows dynamic tuning of their gains. The methodology introduced in this paper is model-based, where sub-models for the system to be controlled are created, based on the output, as a scheduling parameter. Dominant dynamics of the nonlinear models are encapsulated into a linearized version that has a dynamic nature to cover the whole range of operation. A pole-placement technique is used to design the PID dynamic gain. The proposed technique is shown to be effectively applied to robotic manipulators, process industry, and automotives.

Abstract

Within the Stokes approximation, a steady-state pressure-driven flow of a viscous fluid in a plane microchannel with one or two striped superhydrophobic walls containing rectangular microcavities partially filled with gas bubbles is studied numerically. The most general case is considered when the cavities on the bottom and top walls of the microchannel are located either symmetrically or asymmetrically with respect to the centerline of the selected flow period. The mathematical problem corresponding to the considered geometry of the flow is solved by the boundary element method. This method makes it possible to reduce the initial differential problem with mixed boundary conditions on the flow boundaries to a system of boundary integral equations and thus to reduce the dimension of the original problem by one. An effective numerical procedure based on the boundary element method is developed to calculate the flow patern in the chosen periodic domain. A parametric study of the flow is performed for a microchannel containing microcavities partially or fully filled with gas bubbles on the bottom and/or top channel walls. The value of the effective slip length entering in the averaged Navier slip boundary condition is found using the calculated fluid velocity field. The reduction of the pressure difference in the microchannel due to the presence of the gas bubbles trapped in the microcavities is estimated. The method developed and the results obtained can be used for the opimization of the design of striped superhydrophobic surfaces in microfluidic applications.

Abstract

The content and the structure of a personal consumption is an important factor determining the dynamics of economic and social indicators, since consumer expenditure accounts for more than half of total expenditures and determines the amount of investment into the human capital that, in the conditions of a postindustrial society, plays a decisive role in shaping sustainable economic growth rates and realizing a socially oriented national development strategy. The article analyses the peculiarities of the personal consumption process in the conditions of the modern welfare economy and its determinants, there is made an attempt to systematize and identify the interrelations between them, which will help in developing an objective forecast of GDP dynamics, on the basis of which state programs for social and economic development are formed.


Classical and ab initio molecular dynamics simulation of p-coumaric acid in methanol-modified supercritical carbon dioxide

Darya Gurina1

Abstract

The p-coumaric acid (pCA) is a representative of a wide class of phenolic compounds, namely, hydroxycinnamic acids. pCA exhibits such useful activities as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiplatelet, anti-melanogenic and so on. Due to its high physiological activity p-coumaric acid has a great potential for biomedical and industrial applications. It was shown that pCA can be extracted from plant sources by means of supercritical (SC) fluid extraction process [1] with CO2 as a solvent. Solubility of pCA in SC CO2 is very low that is why using small amount of a polar cosolvent (such as alcohol or acetone) is a common practice. The reasons for increasing the solubility of bioactive molecules in modified SC CO2 are probably related to intermolecular interactions between the solute and the cosolvent. In order to study in details intermolecular interactions in such systems the classical and ab initio molecular dynamics simulation of triple mixtures (pCA-methanol-SC CO2) has been performed. Firstly classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulation was carried out with Gromacs-5.0.7 software package (GPU-accelerated). NVT cubic box with periodic boundary condition contains 10342 CO2 molecules, 320 methanol molecules, and 1 pCA molecule. Constant temperature 328 K was maintained by Nose-Hoover thermostat, box length was 10.0045 nm which corresponded to a system density of 772 kg/m3 and experimental pressure of 21.3 MPa. After the equilibration, a production time was 5 ns with a time step 0.1 fs and collecting time each 0.1 ps. Statistical analysis of obtained data allowed defining the composition of the pCA first solvation shell. Preferential solvation of pCA by methanol molecules was observed. From 3 to 6 methanol molecules can be found around pCA simultaneously. One of them forms a stable hydrogen bond (HB) with H atom of a hydroxyl group of pCA and two molecules form HBs with H atom of –COOH group and carbonyl oxygen. Based on the classical MD data we have chosen an initial configuration of the first solvation shell for further simulation by ab initio molecular dynamics. Car-Parrinello MD simulation was carried out with help of CPMD-3.13.2 program in NVT-ensemble (1 solute, 6 molecule of methanol, 50 CO2 molecules, T=328 K). BLYP exchange-correlation functional and ultrasoft Vanderbilt pseudopotential with plane wave basis set were used. The production time was 20 ps with time step 0.121 fs. Structural properties, namely atom-atom radial distribution functions, coordination numbers, geometric parameters of solute-cosolvent hydrogen bonds were obtained and analyzed. Vibrational densities of states (VDOS) were calculated from velocity autocorrelation function. The peak positions were compared with the peak positions of IR spectrum presented in literature for pCA in gas phase. The redshift in the frequency of the OH stretching mode for hydroxyl and carboxyl groups of pCA involved in HBs with methanol was observed. 1. Paviani, L. C., Saito, E., Dariva, C., Marcucci, M.

Abstract

We develop here the method for obtaining approximate boundaries of parametric resonance in the space of parameters. We have Floquet theory applied to the system with parametric excitation. The monodromy (Floquet) matrix is found by averaging method. We study domains of stability with the use of fourth order approximations of monodromy matrix on example of inverted position of a pendulum with vertically oscillating pivot. Addition of small damping shifts the stability boundaries upwards, thus resulting to both stabilization and destabilization effects.

Abstract

Mathematical modeling of passing the laser radiation through biological tissue is important for estimating the effectiveness of laser thermotherapy of tumors. It is important to determine the optimal parameters of laser irradiation to provide a sufficient temperature in the tumor to damage it, and to minimize damage to surrounding tissue. The mathematical model of passing the laser radiation through biological tissue bounded by domain $G$ includes the radiation and the heat equations: $$ \dfrac{1}{c}\frac{\partial I(r, \omega, t) }{\partial t} + \omega \cdot \nabla I(r, \omega, t) +(\mu_a+\mu_s)I(r, \omega, t) = \frac{\mu_s}{4 \pi} \int\limits_{\Omega} P(r, \omega \cdot \omega', t)I(r, \omega', t)d\omega',$$ $$\rho C_p \frac{\partial T }{\partial t} - \nabla \cdot (k\nabla T ) = \beta (T_b - T ) + \frac{\mu_a}{4 \pi} \int\limits_{\Omega}I(r, \omega, t)d\omega.$$ Here, $I(r, \omega)$ is the intensity of radiation at the point $r \in G$ and in the direction $\omega \in \Omega$, $\Omega$ is the unit sphere, $T$ is the temperature, $\mu_a$ the absorbtion coefficient, $\mu_s$ the scattering coefficients, $c$ is the speed of light in the tissue, $P(r, \omega \cdot \omega')$ the phase function of scattering, $\rho$ the tissue density, $C_p$ the specific heat capacity, $k$ is the termal conductivity, $\beta$ the blood perfusion coefficient, and $T_b$ the blood temperature. At the boundary $\Gamma$ of the domain $G$, we set the following boundary conditions: $$I(r,\omega, t)= h(r,\omega, t), \;\; r \in \Gamma, \;\; \omega \cdot n < 0, \;\;\;\; k \partial_n T + \gamma(T_c - T)|_{\Gamma} = 0, $$ where $n$ is the outward normal, $\partial_n$ is the normal derivative, $\gamma$, $T_c$, and $h$ are given functions. The initial condition is given by $$I(r, \omega, 0) = 0,$$ $$T(x, 0)=T_0.$$ In the current work, an iterative algorithm to find a solution of the initial-boundary value problem is constructed and implemented. The numerical experiments simulated the pulse laser irradiation of the skin are conducted. The temperature fields at different moments of time are determined.


Cooling in Granular Gases

Sanjay Puri1

1Jawaharlal Nehru University, School of Physical Sciences, India

Abstract

We discuss the dynamical behavior of freely-evolving granular gases, e.g., interstellar dust. This system loses energy (cools) continuously because of the inelastic collisions between particles. The gas initially cools in a homogeneous cooling state (HCS), but a clustering instability drives it into an inhomogeneous cooling state (ICS). We present results for the HCS and ICS of granular gases where (a) the restitution coefficient is constant; (b) the dissipation mechanism is friction. We discuss the analytical and numerical techniques used to study granular gases.

Abstract

In this paper, the behavior of a gas bubble in a vertical cylindrical tube under the effect of peristaltic motion of long wavelength and low Reynolds number with two-phase density has been investigated. The mathematical model is solved analytically by using mass, momentum, and concentration equations to obtain the behavior of gas bubbles, concentration and velocity distributions. The growth of gas bubbles, concentration and velocity distribution are studied under the effect of some physical parameters, such as, the amplitude ratio, Grashof number, heat source parameter, volume rate, and density fraction. Several graphs for these results of physical interest are displayed and discussed in detail.

Abstract

In this work we propose a novel approach to investigate boundary value problems (BVPs) for fully third order differential equations which arise in various areas of applied mathematics and physics. It is based on the reduction of BVPs to operator equations for the nonlinear terms but not for the functions to be sought. By this approach we have established the existence, uniqueness and positivity of solutions and the convergence of the iterative method for approximating the solutions under some easily verified conditions in bounded domains. These conditions are much simpler and weaker than those of other authors when studying solvability of the problems by using different methods. Many examples illustrate the applicability and efficiency of the proposed approach.

Optimal Structural Design of a Circular Cylindrical Ridge Wave Ultrasonic Motor

Tai-Ho Yu1

1National United University, Electronic Engineering, Taiwan

Abstract

Exact solutions for flexural ridge wave propagation around a circular cylindrical tube have not previously been possible. Rather, such problem used to be solved numerically or using an empirical formula. This study investigates the dispersive properties of ridge waves traveling circumferentially around piezoelectric tubes, as well as their resonant modes. Based on the separation of variables, the displacements of ridge waves are represented as the product of a cross-sectional coordinate-dependent function and the propagator along the circumference of a tube. The dispersion equation of ridge waves is formulated by using Hamilton’s principle and the so-called bi-dimensional finite element method (Bi-d FEM). Furthermore, the dispersion curves of traveling waves and resonant frequencies corresponding to standing waves are solved numerically. Several applications, such as an optimal design for circular cylindrical ridge wave ultrasonic motors, are illustrated. The Bi-d FEM and the commercial finite element code ANSYS are used to determine the dispersion curves of circular cylindrical ridge wave ultrasonic motors. The responses of traveling waves around the stator are simulated by using a harmonic analysis of ANSYS. The optimal structural design is achieved and verified by using a laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV) and via impedance measurements made using modal sensors on the outer border of a stator with a network analyzer. The performance test results show that the prototype USM based on a flexural resonant mode of (m=1, n=4) achieves a maximum torque of 22.6 mN-m and the maximum revolution speed of 334 rpm. The validity of the presented numerical approach has thus been verified.


Mathematical Modeling of rubber elasticity

Hiroshi Koibuchi1

1National Institute of Technology, Industrial Engineering, Japan

Abstract

A mathematical modeling, the Finsler geometry (FG) technique, is applied to study rubber elasticity. The existing experimental data of stress-strain diagrams, which are highly non-linear, are numerically reproduced. The rubber elasticity is called entropy elasticity and still insufficiently understood from the microscopic perspective. In the FG modeling for studying the mechanical property of materials, we modify the geometric structure inside the material simply by replacing the Euclidean metric with Finsler metric, and as a consequence an interaction energy between the directional and positional degrees of freedom of polymers is effectively or implicitly introduced in the Hamiltonian (2014, Physica A ${\bf 393}$, 37-50). It must be emphasized that the interaction is automatically introduced in this modeling. Therefore, this technique is new and completely different from the ordinary modeling techniques, in which an interaction energy must be introduced explicitly in the Hamiltonian for the statistical mechanical treatment. Most interestingly in the FG modeling, several different phenomena can be identified in the sense that the models share the same mathematical structure. Indeed, the FG moeling technique was already successfully applied to several interesting phenomena: The so-called soft elasticity as a response to external mechanical forces, the elongations under the temperature change, and those by external electric fields observed in the liquid crystal elastomers are analyzed by 3D FG model (2017 Polymer ${\bf 114}$, 335-369). It was also shown that the J-shaped stress-strain curve of biological materials such as animal skin and muscle is calculated by 2D FG model (2017 Phys. Rev. E ${\bf 95}$, 042411(1-11)). Moreover, the origin of the line tension energy, which plays an important role in the model of two-component membranes, is explained by a 2D FG model (2016 Polymers ${\bf 8}$, 284(1-18); 2017 Axioms ${\bf 6}$, 10).

Abstract

Fires in road tunnels are extremely destructive events destroying irreversibly not only tunnel facilities but also concrete tunnel walls. Therefore it is almost impossible to perform full-scale fire tests of realistic fire scenarios in particular tunnels in operation. From these reasons, specific testing aerosol is used for road tunnel ventilation tests to represent steady-state movement of fire smoke downstream of the fire and to avoid the damage of the tunnel. The testing aerosol is generated by a chemical reaction of 50 times less heat release rate (HRR) than is the HRR of modelled fire; however, it is assumed that the optical density of aerosol in a sufficiently long distance from the modelled fire source corresponds to the optical density of the modelled fire smoke. This study investigates the spread of aerosol in a 240 m long part of a road tunnel by computer simulation using the well-known FDS simulation system and compares it with the fire smoke spread. Conditions under which optical density for both cases is similar are determined, mainly the mass flux of aerosol needed to represent the smoke produced by fire and the distance at which steady-state flow of smoke is formed. The influence of the fire HRR and air flow velocity on the determined aerosol mass flux is studied as well. The determined value of mass flux increases with flow velocity and decreases with fire HRR. The results indicate that the aerosol can be used to represent the optical density of steady-state fire smoke spread downstream of the fire in tunnel ventilation tests.


Multiparametric families of solutions to the Johnson equation.

pierre gaillard1

1université de Bourgogne, mathématiques, France

Abstract

We construct solutions to the Johnson equation in terms of Fredholm determinants. We deduce solutions written as a quotient of wronskians of order 2N. These solutions called solutions of order N depend on 2N-1 parameters. They can be written as a quotient of 2 polynomials of degree 2N(N+1) in x, t and 4N(N+1) in y depending on 2N-2 parameters. We explicitly construct the expressions until the order 5 and we study the patterns of their modulus in the plane (x,y) and their evolution according to time and parameters.


The study of structure of roots of transcendental equation using argument principle

Nail Khabeev1

1Bahrain university, mathematics, Bahrain

Abstract

In acoustics and vibration theory the basic equation are usually linearized. The condition of existence of a nontrivial solution of the linear equations leads to the characteristic transcendental equation with respect to H. Here H is the complex number imaginary part of which is natural frequency of oscillations of the system. Real part is describing the rate of damping of oscillations or instability (in case if real part is positive). The structure of roots of such equations is studied by using argument principle for some specific applied problem from fluid mechanics. It is shown that dispersion equation has two complex-conjugate roots and infinite number of real roots. All roots lie in the left complex half-plane, providing damping of oscillations.

Abstract

During recent years, the attention of researchers has been drawn to the processes of self-organization in dense two-dimensional (2D) granular systems [1]. In particular, many experimental works have been devoted to the pattern formation in thin layers composed of elongated granules subjected to vibrations [2–4]. To model such the systems, it is convenient to use the lattice approach, i.e., a discrete space (square lattice) is used, the rod with the aspect ratio $k$ is represented as a linear $k$-mer (rectangle of size $1 \times k$ lattice units). In this case, the rod can have only two mutually perpendicular spatial orientations, and the coordinates of its angles can be only integer. The diffusion of $k$-mers on a square lattice has been studied using the kinetic Monte Carlo (MC) simulation [5–8]. Initial states with desired packing fraction of $k$-mers were produced using random sequential adsorption (RSA) [9]. Because the $k$-mers were considered as hard-core (completely rigid) particles, the mechanism inducing the force was necessarily entropic. Hard-core interaction between the rods means that energy of interparticle interaction, $U$, is defined as $$U = \begin{cases} 0, & \mbox{if } r>d, \\ \infty, & \mbox{if } r \leq d, \end{cases}$$ where $r$ is the distance between two particles and $d$ is the lattice constant. The Helmholtz energy, $F$, is defined as $F = U - TS,$ where $U$ is the internal energy, $T$ is the absolute temperature of the surroundings, and $S$ is the entropy of the system. At equilibrium, the Helmholtz energy of a system at constant temperature and volume is minimal. Due to hard-core interaction between the rods, the internal energy equals to zero. When the temperature is constant, any changes of the free energy can be induced only by changes of the entropy, i.e., $\Delta F = - T \Delta S.$ Pattern formation or phase transitions in such the system are said to be entropy-driven. In this case, an increase in macroscopic order is driven by an increase of microscopic disorder, i.e., a particle has more free volume to move in the final ordered state than it had in the initial disordered state [10]. The main attention was paid to isotropic systems, i.e., to systems with an equal number of vertical and horizontal particles. In dense systems, only translational diffusion of particles is possible, while rotational diffusion is completely suppressed. The system is isolated, i.e., neither matter nor energy can come in and go away. The influence of the aspect ratio of the particles, their concentration, the size of the system, and the type of boundary conditions on the formation of structures and the change in physical properties have been studied [5,6]. The configurational entropy has been applied to analyze entropy-driven phase transition in a system of long rods on a square lattice [11]. Recently, the orientational phase transitions that occur in the deposition of $k$-mers were characterized by information theory techniques [12]. Namely, the data recognizer ``word length zipper'' (wlzip) was created and utilized to find repeated meaningful information in any sequence of data. In spite of the fact that the change in various characteristics with time was investigated and reported [5,6], the key value---entropy---has not been investigated. Since the degree of randomness or orderliness of the system is characterized by its entropy, the study of this particular quantity is expected to be most important for understanding the details of diffusion-driven self-organization. In this paper, we propose to apply the entropy approach to the study of the process of self-organization, i.e. the study of the change in the entropy of such a system over time. Our goal is entropy changes in the dense 2D system of rods. References [1] I. S. Aranson and L. S. Tsimring, “Patterns and collective behavior in granular media: Theoretical concepts,” Rev. Mod.

Abstract

New technological methods for non-destructive testing (NDT) for in situ and real time control of complex physico-chemical processes are under constant development in the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) [1-12]. These methods should be developed along with mathematical model and computer code to provide both the adequate analytical physical model and the rapid computation of a process under research. In our NDT-studies with Laser Active Radiometry method, samples representative for nuclear and thermonuclear (ITER) installations were under repetitive heating by a pulsed laser radiation. The development of the analytical models and simplified solutions was aimed to simulate laser heating and related temperature distribution T(x, y, z, t) in relation with numerous physical and chemical features of this complex multi-parametric process. The results of our mathematical modeling were validated by the experiments. The simulation and experimental results were in good correlation. The principal results of our theoretical studies, their applicability for rapid NDT and the prospects for future models development for heating temperature calculation in application to complex surfaces with micrometric layers or undersurface defects will be presented and discussed.

Abstract

One of the authors studied thermodynamical aspect of single Reiss-ner-Nordst\"om (RN) black hole where first order phase transition is happened [1] at critical temperature Tc. Same work is followed here but for mean metric of RN black holes statistical ensembles (RNBHSE). Results of this work satisfies qualitatively but not quantitatively with ones which obtained for a single RN black hole. To calculate the mean metric we use Chevalier et al approach to average metric components of the RNBHSE. Using Bekenstein-Hawking entropy theorem for mean metric, we calculate interior and exterior entropy, temperature, Gibbs free energy and heat capacity at constant electric charge e and ensembles parameter a. We obtained that exterior horizon of mean metric is exhibited with a first order phase transition at a critical temperature, because sign of Gibbs free energy first order derivative is changed by increasing the temperature. The mean metric Gibbs free energy of exterior (interior) horizon takes two set of different values synchronously for positive (negative) temperatures which means that the system is mixture of two different subsystems at interior and exterior horizons. Gibbs free energies of subsystems of interior horizon reach to values of Gibbs free energies of exterior horizon subsystems at zero temperature. At last section of the paper we assumed that the mean metric is interacting with mass-less, charge-less quantum scalar matter field and evaluated luminosity and mass loss equation of quantum perturbed mean metric. Same of single evaporating quantum perturbed RN black hole we obtained quantum mean metric switching off effect before than that the mean mass completely vanishes. It reaches to a could Lukewarm type of RN black hole which its final remnant mass will be equal to its invariant electric charge at geometrical units $m_{final}=|e|$.


Shape memory moulding of polymer glass: A numerical simulation study

Abstract

Most of the thermally-deformed polymer glasses can recover back to their original shapes after reheating, but the underlying mechanisms and the potential applications have not been fully explored. With the aid of finite element simulation, this paper studies the shape memory mechanism of a polymer glass (PMMA) and proposes a new moulding technique: shape memory moulding. The simulation results showed that after thermal compression at high temperature and cooling down, the polymer sample can keep its deformed shape and store significant residual stress due to its large viscosity. In the reheating process, however, the residual stress could be released at around 90 ˚C and promote the shape of sample recover back to its original shape. Based on this effect, we further established a numerical platform for exploring the feasibility of shape memory moulding. Particularly, the shape recovery ability of the polymer was evaluated at different pre-treatment temperatures and strains. It was found that the pre-treatment strain can significantly affect the shape recovery ability of polymer, reflected by the contact pressure. The higher the pre-treatment strain, the higher the contact pressure, and thus the better the shape recovery ability one can get. However, the influence of pre-treatment temperature is trivial, and the major shape recovery occurs near the glass transition temperature during the reheating.

Abstract

The Navier-Stokes equations with damping describe the flow with the resistance to the motion such as porous media flow and drag or friction effects and a mathematical viewpoint, the equations can be viewed as a modification of the Navier-Stokes equations with the regularizing term. This paper is concerned with the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations with damping term and homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions in 3D bounded domains. First, we prove a certain regularity of weak solutions of the problem . Next, we prove that the weak solution which satisfies an energy inequality is unique provided one of the conditions is satisfied: (i) , (ii) (iii) , (iv) , where is the kinematic viscosity.


A new mixed formulation and efficient numerical solution of Ginzburg--Landau equations under the temporal gauge

Weiwei Sun1

1City University of Hong Kong , Mathematics, China

Abstract

In this talk we present our recent work on which we introduced a new numerical approach to the time dependent Ginzburg--Landau (GL) equations under the temporal gauge (zero electric potential gauge). The approach is based on a mixed formulation of the GL equations, which consists of two parabolic equations for the order parameter $\psi$ and the magnetic field $\sigma = \curl \, \bA$, respectively and a vector ordinary differential equation for the magnetic potential $\bA$. A fully linearized Galerkin FEM is presented for solving the mixed GL system. The new approach offers many advantages on both accuracy and efficiency over existing methods. In particular, the equations for $\psi$ and $\sigma$ are uniformly parabolic and therefore, the method provides optimal-order accuracy for the two physical components $\psi$ and $\sigma$. Since in the temporal direction, a fully linearized backward Euler scheme is used for $\psi$ and $\sigma$ and a forward Euler scheme is used for $\bA$, respectively, the system is fully decoupled and at each time step, the three variables $\psi$, $\sigma$ and $\bA$ can be solved simultaneously. Moreover, we present numerical comparisons with two commonly-used Galerkin methods for the GL equations under the temporal gauge and the Lorentz gauge, respectively. Our numerical results show that the new approach requires less iterations for solving the linear systems arising at each time step and the computational cost for the vector ODE seems neglectable. Several numerical examples with complex geometries are also investigated.


INSTABILITY AND TRANSITIONS OF DIVERGING AND CONVERGING HEAT-CONDUCTING FLOWS IN AN ANNULUS

Luiza Shapakidze1

1A. Razmadze Mathematical Institute of I. Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Department of Elasticity Theory, Georgia

Abstract

The effect of the direction of the azimuthal pressure gradient on the character of the instability and transitions to turbulence of heat-conducting diverging and converging flows in an annulus between two permeable cylinders is considered. The basic flow is maintained by the azimuthal pressure gradient in the transverse direction and by distribution of angular velocities under the rotation of two cylinders and radial flows. The methods of the nonlinear theory of bifurcations of hydrodynamic flows with cylindrical symmetry together with numerical calculations allow one to demonstrate that the magnitude and direction of the applied pressure gradient control the character of instability and transitions of the basic flow. The instability and transitions to chaotic regimes arising after the loss of stability of the main flow stability are investigated for different values of flow parameters and shown in the graphs.


On the complete continuity of eigenvalues of ordinary differential operators in potentials and weights

Meirong Zhang1

1Tsinghua University, Department of Mathematical Sciences, China

Abstract

In this talk, I will report some recent results on the dependence of eigenvalues of Sturm-Liouville problems on potentials and weights. It will be shown that these eigenvalues are dependent on potentials and weights in a very strongly continuous way, namely, when the weak topologies are considered for potentials and weights in the Lebesgue spaces, as nonlinear functionals, eigenvalues are still continuous. Such a result can be called the complete continuity. If time is allowed, I will then report how we can apply such a complete continuity and the variational method to find some optimal lower and upper bounds of these eigenvalues.

Affine Connections in Quantum Gravity

Kaushik Ghosh1

1Vivekananda College, University of Calcutta, Physics, India

Abstract

In this manuscript, we will discuss the construction of covariant derivative operator in a quantum theory of gravity. We will find it is more appropriate to use connection coefficients more general than the Levi-Civita connections in quantum gravity. We will demonstrate this for the canonical quantization procedure. We will find that quantization of gravity give an additional field besides metric. This field is associated with general connection coefficients and can be described by a third rank tensor which include torsion. This additional field is considered in the Palatini action. The complete tensor is not considered in quantum theories of gravity. General connection coefficients contribute a source term in the free theory of quantum gravity. They will also introduce additional particles besides graviton in quantum gravity. The energy-momentum conservation law no longer remains exactly valid when we do not use the Levi-Civita connections. We will also find that we have to extend the electric charge conservation law when we use connection coefficients more general than the Levi-Civita connections. General connection coefficients will become significant to solve cosmological problems.


Mathematical modeling of dynamics of tornado like stationary vortex: An exact solution

Abstract

Abstract: Tornado vortex is a three dimensional nonlinear phenomenon. In this paper we investigate the dynamics of tornado like stationary vortex by considering the real inflow radial velocity distribution depends on both radial and vertical coordinates based on the experimental and observations data. We present an analytical model for steady, incompressible and viscous fluids. Although all the three components depend on radial and axial coordinates, viscosity affects merely the azimuthal velocity and the pressure. It is observed that the magnitude of the radial velocity increases to the maximum at the core but reverses the trend beyond and vanishes as it reaches the centre line. The magnitude reduces linearly with axial distance as per the supposition. At the core, larger the Reynolds number, lesser is the velocity for moderate Reynolds number. Insignificant impact is observed for very large Reynolds number. However, inside and outside the core, the trends are reversed. Radial pressure distributions for different axial positions are similar to theoretical, numerical and experimental observations. As we move outwards from the axis, pressure falls. Difference between the pressures at the axis and that in outward regions increases with height. Pressure falls with rising Reynolds number uniformly for all radial distances. This is an indication that quantitative difference in pressure is large between viscous and inviscid flows.


The influence of magnetic field on convection in an inclined ferrofluid layer heated from below

Sergey Suslov1

1Swinburne University of Technology, Department of Mathematics, Australia

Abstract

Ferrofluids are modern strongly magneto-polarisable nanofluids. Their flows can be non-intrusively controlled by applying an external magnetic field. One of their prospective applications is as a heat carrier in thermal management systems operating in conditions where natural convection is suppressed due extreme confinement (e.g.~microelectronics). The linear and weakly nonlinear flow stability analyses that will be presented here illustrates an intricate interplay between thermogravitational and thermomagnetic mechanisms of convection in one of the practically important geometrical setups, an inclined fluid layer heated from below. The low-dimensional amplitude evolution equations of Landau type are derived to model the physical phenomena of interest. The solutions of the so-obtained dynamical system show that the application of magnetic field can indeed trigger convection in regimes where natural convection cannot exist, thus enhancing heat transfer. At the same time in regimes where both magnetic and gravitational buoyancy mechanisms are active the competition between the two may suppress the overall heat exchange. The physical reasons for such an intriguing behaviour will be illuminated.


Role of Cloud Computing in Organizational Development: Trust Enhancement Information Security Companies Perspective

Abstract

Cloud computing is an amalgam of techniques and technologies that provide software, infrastructure, platform and storage services that are packaged to provide a new paradigm of scalability, agility, cost effectiveness, availability and flexibility for the benefit of public at large. Along with the provision of useful services, there is also a huge concentration of risks which cloud users are facing. These risks include security, integrity, authenticity, transparency, trust and authorization issues. Information security companies provide offensive and defensive cyber security solutions to guard different organizations from cyber-attacks. They establish policies and measures for providing secure services but still there are many risks that security companies are facing. These risks are associated with keeping sensitive data on cloud. People have a lack of trust due to these issues. Many studies have been conducted previously in which the trust deficiencies at public side for cloud are addressed due to the sensitivity of data, difficulties faced by information security companies while providing cloud services and recommendations were provided to resolve the issue. In this paper the reasons for the lack of trust in cloud environment are addressed as most of the trust issues are stemmed because of security problems so the solutions to these issues for enhancing trust in cloud computing environment are also presented in this paper. For this purpose qualitative study is conducted and interviews were conducted from different security companies. Data is analyzed using Nvivo and results have provided the measures that can be taken to resolve the issues

Mathematical Modeling of Intra Soil Moisture Condensation In Frozen Ground

Petr Permyakov1

1Larionov Institute of the Physical-Technical Problems of the North of the Siberian Branch of the RAS, Department of Physical Chemistry of Materials and Technologies, Russian Federation

Abstract

The process of air vapor condensation is extremely widespread in nature. It occurs in the atmosphere, on open surfaces and in the upper layers of the lithosphere. The process of condensation is exothermic (with release of heat), which proves the need for it to be taken into account in balance calculations in practically any natural and technogenic conditions. Given this fact, water vapor condensation study becomes especially important in the areas of the southern mountainous cryolithozone, where insignificant deviations from the thermal balance cause drastic changes in permafrost conditions. This in turn leads to the development of dangerous cryogenic geological processes. Problems of condensation and evaporation of ground water were studied by many scientists, who have conducted various experimental and field studies. As a result, various hypotheses appeared. Some researchers have established that condensation and evaporation proceed very intensively, while others suggest that these processes can be ignored in practical calculations. Mass exchange in soils occurs with the absorption of heat during evaporation and vice versa with the release of heat during condensation. This work is devoted to the mathematical modeling of heat and moisture exchange taking into account the condensation and evaporation of subsoil moisture during seasonal thawing of permafrost. Moisture motion can be described using the transfer equation in humid or potential (Richards equation) forms in saturated and unsaturated soils. Based on the experimental and full-scale data, the parameters of condensation and evaporation of pore moisture were verified. The numerical realization of the nonlinear heat and mass transfer problem is carried out by method of finite differences using Newton’s method. Validity of the proposed model is shown in the case of seasonal thawing of permafrost. As a result of numerical experiment in the conditions of Central Yakutia, it has been established that when the soil moisture evaporates and condenses, the total moisture content of the soil increases. In the spring-summer period there we observe intense evaporation of intra soil and a decrease in temperature, and the summer-autumn period shows increasing condensation of water vapor, accompanied by an increase in the heat content of the soil. At the end of the summer season, in late September and early October, there occurs a “blocking” of the wet thawed layer. The suggested mathematical model more adequately reflects the process of freezing of the “blocked” zone. The condition for intensive process of water vapor condensation in soils is large temperature gradient (heat exchange at the atmosphere-soil interface), presence of moist air, and porosity of the rocks. The most favorable conditions for the progress of this process are possible in regions with a sharp continental climate and a large amount of precipitation falling in short time periods.

Abstract

Composite nanomaterials attract a lot of attention due to a wide range of different applications. In particular, two-dimensional composites are extremely attractive for transparent and flexible electronics. Adding a certain amount of nanofillers to the polymeric host-matrix significantly affects the mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of such a system. Understanding of the formation of a spanning network of nanofillers inside the host matrix, which occurs above the critical filler concentration, called the percolation threshold, is crucial to design a material with the desired properties. Our goal is some common properties of such the spanning random network of fillers. We consider zero-width rods of length $l$. These rods are randomly and sequentially deposited onto a square sheet of size $L \times L$ ($L \geqslant 2l$) with periodic boundary conditions (PBCs), i.e. onto a torus $\mathbb{T}^2 = \mathbb{R}^2 / (L\cdot \mathbb{Z})^2$. PBCs are applied to eliminate any boundary effects. Deposited rods produce a random graph. Some properties of such the graph can be derived analytically. The expectation of number of vertices is $M(V_n) = \frac{n(n - 1)p}{2} + 2n.$ The expectation of number of edges is $M(E_n) = n(n - 1)p + n.$ Here, $p = \left(\frac{l}{L}\right)^2 \frac{2}{\pi},$ and $n$ is the number of deposited rods. Similarly, some analytical results can be obtained for circles and other simple objects.

The Diffusion-Vortex Problems in Terms of Stresses for Bingham Materials

Dimitri Georgievskii1

1Moscow State University, Mechanical and Mathematical Department, Russian Federation

Abstract

The formulations and the new exact self-similar solutions of the diffusion-vortex problems in terms of stresses simulating a nonsteady one-dimensional shear in some curvilinear orthogonal coordinate system of two-constant rigid viscoplastic medium (the Bingham solid), are analysed. Both the diffusion of plane and axisymmetric vortex layers as and the diffusion of vortex thread belong to these type of incompressible flows. A shear is realized inside the certain expanding in time subdomains of infinite space with beforehand unknown bounds. Herewith one possible way for formulation of additional condition at infinity is described. We introduce into consideration the generalized diffusion of vortex which contains several material parameters and an order of stress irregularity in zero. The self-similar solutions where an order of irregularity corresponds or does not correspond to the kind of shear in the selected coordinate system are constructed.


Universal graded Hopf algebra and classical mechanics

Vyacheslav Kalnitsky1

1Saint-Petersburg state university, Higher geometry, Russian Federation

Abstract

The concept of the tangent and cotangent bundles plays a central role in describing the dynamics of mechanical systems with singular configuration space. There is no any unified approach to the description of these objects at the present time. The reason for considering a particular construction is that the constructed model gives these bundles in the classical case. One example of such a generalization is the algebra of cosymbols of differential operators of the smooth functions algebra on a singular manifold in the category of geometric modules. This algebra has the natural structure of the Hopf algebra and the algebra dual to it in the classical case coincides with the cotangent bundle of a smooth manifold. Generalizing this example, we introduce the notion of a universal graded algebra for which we can define the structure of the Hopf algebra and the Poisson bracket is defined in a natural way on the dual algebra. This allows us to determine the evolution equation of the system.

Abstract

Shock-bubble interaction (SBI) is the classical and widely studied gasdynamic problem that is closely related to Richtmyer-Meshkov instability (RMI). The applications of this flow class cover a wide range of scales, spanning from shock-wave lithotripsy in medicine and supersonic combustion to inertial confinement fusion and shocked interstellar media. In gases, such interaction result in complex flow with shock focusing phenomenon and formation of long-living vortex rings. The flows are divided naturally into two major classes: the light bubble class (Atwood number $At<0$) and the heavy bubble class ($At>0$). Although the shock focusing is present for the both cases, in the case of heavy bubble it is much more expressed. In this scenario, for high Atwood numbers, there is an intense localized shock collapse followed by the formation of high-speed axial jets. This effect may allow an otherwise insufficiently strong incident shock to initiate the combustion of bubbles filled with a reactive gas mixture. $$$$ The shock focusing phenomenon results from the velocity of the transmitted shock inside the bubble being lower than the velocity of the incident shock; the latter shock diffracts around the bubble and collapses at the axis of symmetry while several transversal shocks interact inside the bubble. There are two different interaction modes - external and internal shock refraction patterns - depending on the shock Mach number, bubble geometry and Atwood number. $$$$ The present study is concerned with numerical simulation of interaction of a plane shock with heavy gas bubble ($At>0$). Shock focusing process features depending on bubble density ratio are investigated in detail. Unsteady two-dimensional (plane and axisymmetrical) perfect gas flows are modeled using Euler's equations which are solved with finite-difference implementation of 5th order WENO-Z scheme. $$$$ Three distinct pressure peaks are observed on the symmetry axis (or symmetry plane) during shock focusing process: one of them is outside of the shocked bubble and two are inside. Shock focusing intensity - most notably the third pressure peak - rise with density ratio increase. The highest increase is observed upon transition from external to internal shock focusing pattern.

Abstract

The process of passing a strong shock wave ($M=5-6$) through the region of pre-formed ionization instability in gas discharge plasma in air with pressure equal to 7 Torr and gas-discharge current $200-300\,mA$ has been studied experimentally and numerically. In the experiments the ionization spherical strata have been obtained arising in the gas discharge region due to the development of the ionization instability at high degree of ionization and non-equilibrium (gas temperature $T\sim300-600\,K$, electron temperature $T_e\sim1000\,K$). As a result of the interaction of an initially plane shock wave with plasma area of ionization instability, the formation of a new shock-wave configuration consisting of the shock wave and contact surface is observed. A form of the both discontinuities has been shown to change from smooth-homogeneous to serrated, acquiring an unstable character. Note, that this phenomenon was observed experimentally for the first time. Numerical modeling was carried out on the basis of the Euler and Navier-Stokes systems of equations with the parameters corresponding to the experimental conditions. The energy source was modeled by a set of thermal layers with varying characteristics. Changes in the physico-chemical properties of the medium were described by varying the adiabatic index. Stratified shock-wave structures consisting of modified wavy shock-wave and contact discontinuity fronts have been obtained as a result of the interaction of the shock wave with the region of ionizing-unstable gas-discharge plasma. Generation of the Richtmyer-Meshkov instabilities has been obtained on the thermal strata in the vicinity of the shock wave front curvatures. Results of the study can be used to control of high speed flows and shock-wave configurations, as well as mixing processes.


On structural and phase transitions in aluminum alloys

Yakov Rudaev1

1Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University, Department of Mechanics, Kyrgyzstan

Abstract

Mathematical modeling of behavior of group of the industrial aluminum alloys with initial varying grain size structure showing superplastic properties in certain temperature and strain rate ranges is presented. It is known that the structural superplasticity is connected with facilitated by fine-grained structure formation (1…10 microns) at the preliminary stage. However, for realization of superplasticity of “dynamic type” there has to be a replacement of an initial varying grain size structure state of material with another, ready for superplasticity. Therefore the used definition “the dynamic superplasticity” reflects consecutive change of states which happens in material with initial varying grain size structure under the changing temperature-rate conditions: initial varying grain size → equiaxed fine-grained structure (4…7 microns) formed in the temperature-rate conditions of superplasticity → coarse-grained at further increase in strain rate. These changes are caused by simultaneous action of deformation rates and structural (phase) transitions of evolutionary type in open nonequilibrium systems. In particular, for the considered commercial aluminum alloys with initial varying grain size structure such irreversible transition is dynamic recrystallization. The association of deformation process with metal flow, that has irreversible structural and phase transition of indistinct type at one of the stages, allows using synergetic approach. The mathematical model formulated from positions of solid mechanics use allow to research nonequilibrium system reaction to behavior of thermodynamic response functions – the specific heat and entropy – and to establish implementations features of the irreversible indistinct phase transitions observed in the conditions of dynamic superplasticity for aluminum alloys.


Features of a high-latitude ionospheric parameters modeling

Olga Maltseva1

1Institute for Physics, Southern Federal University, Russian Federation

Abstract

Among the various methods to specify conditions of radio-waves propagation in the ionosphere empirical models play an important role. However, their accuracy in high-latitude region is not sufficiently estimated. In this paper, the International Reference Ionosphere model IRI is used. According to Russian ionospheric stations Gorkovskaya, Lovozero, Salekhard estimations of conformity of model values of parameters to experimental magnitudes are given from May 2017 till January 2018. The particular attention is paid to parameter MUF3000F2 for these stations and to coefficient M(D) for a path Gorkovskaya - Lovozero. It is shown, that these coefficients possess sufficient reliability. Adapting the model to the current diagnostic data has allowed to reduce root-mean-square deviation for MUF(D) almost two times from 31.4 % to 17.2 %. For the identification and localization of disturbances in high latitudes, it is possible to use measurements of the total electron content.

About application of NURBS to monitoring of operational risk of long distance pipelines

Alexander Galakhar1

1Bauman Moscow State Technical University, The School of Computer-driven Systems of Industrial Automation, Russian Federation

Abstract

The system of monitoring of operational risk of long distance pipelines would determine the actual safety factor for instant evaluation of accident risk in real time. The actual safety factor of a pipeline section is determined with not only technical condition of pipes in the section which is assessed using data of periodic inspections, but also with actual distribution of pressure of pipeline transported medium. The pipeline technical condition changes slowly due to degradation. Therefore, the actual safety factor of the operated pipeline depends mainly on loads exerted on the pipe, particularly the load from internal pressure which depends not only on the inlet pressure of the pipeline section, but also on the terrain where the pipeline lies, the actual position of the pipeline in the area and the actual varying conditions of heat transfer from the transported medium to surrounding environment through the pipeline wall. It is proposed to determine the actual pressure distribution in the pipeline section from the differential equation of motion of medium transported through the pipeline which is solved using non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) and the data of real time temperature measurements.

Abstract

A number of salient phenomena have been observed in the laser irradiation of cluster targets. These include the Coulomb explosion of the clusters, enhanced emission of x rays, generation of energetic electrons and energetic ions. There are indications that some strong nonlinear interaction of laser and clusters do occur upon the intense short pulse irradiation. The laser interaction with clusters is far stronger than that of the same intensity laser with other preparations of the same materials such as gas and/or usual plasma and solid with planer surface structure. The results of two - dimensional particle in cell simulations of the ultra short high irradiance laser pulse interaction with cluster targets are presented. We present the energy spectra of the fast ions generated during the Coulomb explosion of the multi-species clusters. The ion acceleration by the radiation pressure of a super-intense laser pulse is demonstrated. When the multi-cluster cloud is imbedded into an underdense plasma the laser radiation expels the electrons from the clusters and ejects them into the wake plasma wave generated by the ultrashort laser pulse. This provides a novel mechanism for the electron injection.


A model for bipolar electrostatic solitary structures with non-Maxwellian (r,q) distributed electrons in space plasmas

M N S Qureshi1

Abstract

Bipolar electric field solitary (EFS) structures are solitary structures in the electric field data observed frequently in space plasmas by various satellites. In this paper, we present a nonlinear fluid model to study ion-acoustic and electron acoustic waves in the presence of electrons that follow the generalized (r,q) distribution. The (r,q) distribution is the generalized form of kappa and Maxwellian distributions and can be reduced in both of these distributions in limiting cases. Non-Maxwellian distributions with high energy tail or flat shoulders at low energies are frequently observed in different regions of space plasmas and found to be best fitted only with the generalized (r,q) distribution function. Interestingly, it has been found that unlike Maxwellian and kappa distributions, the electrostatic waves admit not only density depletions but also allow the formation of density humps for positive values r which correspond to a flat-topped generalized (r,q) distribution. By studying the characteristics of bipolar EFS solitary structures, corresponding to density depletion and humps, we compare our numerical results with the observations from different regions of space plasmas and found good agreement.

Abstract

The possibility of using the homotopy (deformation) method for studying the invariance of extremals for the generalized system of equations of relativistic electrodynamics is considered in this paper. This method makes it possible to investigate the stability of extremals of the action functional. It is known ([1-2]) that a generalized system of equations of relativistic electrodynamics can be obtained by solving the variational extremal problem for the sum of three action functionals, the first of which determines the freely moving charged mass of a particle in an electromagnetic field. The second functional gives the sum of the contributions determined by the four-dimensional electromagnetic Minkowski potential $$ A=(i \varphi, A_{r}) = (i \varphi, A_{1}, A_{2}, A_{3}) $$ and the third one takes into account the more complete dynamics of the electromagnetic (or gravitational) field. The solution of this variational problem allows to obtain a generalized (Hamiltonian) system of equations of the relativistic dynamics [1]. An analysis of the Lyapunov’s stability of solutions of this system is carried out by a deformation (homotopy) method for Hamiltonian systems [3].

Abstract

The theoretical investigation and ab initio calculations of the atomic and electronic structure of 4 variants of the 3C-SiC (111) (2√3 × 2√3) R30o Si- terminated surface: initial, relaxed, reconstructed and relaxed after reconstruction have been performed for the first time. In the layered superlattice approximation, the surface was modeled by a system of the thin films (slabs) with the thickness of 12 atomic layers (~ 1.6 nm) and separated by vacuum gaps of ~ 1.6 nm. To close the carbon dangling bonds on the opposite side of the film, 12 hydrogen atoms with a charge of 1 electron each were added. Ab initio calculations were carried out using the program QUANTUM ESPRESSO, based on the density functional theory In each of the variants, the equilibrium coordinates of the Si and C atoms of the upper four layers were determined. It was shown that the reconstruction leads to the splitting of layers. The results of our previous works and experimental data have shown that such splittings are inherent in the reconstruction of surface (111) in crystals with sphalerite structure. The band structures of 4 variants of slabs and full and layer-by-layer electronic densities of the states have been calculated and analyzed. It turned out that the real surface has a metallic conductivity.

Abstract

It is easy to calculate the partition function of a system with the aid of its spectral density that characterize the degeneracy of each energy level. We compare two methods of a spectral density approximation. They are an approximation by polynomials and our nv-approximation. The approximation by polynomials provides the results that contradict the fundamental physical principles, namely the system finds itself in the ground state at a finite temperature. In addition, this approximation predicts a phase transition type incorrectly. The nv-approximation is free from these defects and it allows us to calculate the critical temperature that differs less than by 5% from the commonly accepted value.

Abstract

Current work solves the problem of feedback control synthesis for a satellite using two-stage approach. During the first stage open-loop control determination task is formulated. It is being solved for various initial conditions via transformation to nonlinear programming problem and its further solution by metaheuristic optimization algorithms. Thus, as the result of the first stage it is possible to find optimal trajectories that correspond to obtained optimal open-loop controls. During the second stage previously gathered information is used to construct a regressor (as the solution of supervised learning problem) which can be treated as the approximation of the desired feedback controller for a satellite.

Curve fitting of Lavalette distribution

Ding-wei Huang1

1Chung Yuan Christian University, Physics, Taiwan, Province Of China

Abstract

In the academic publishing system, impact factor is a measure of citations to recent publications in a scholarly journal. A formulation known as the Lavalette distribution gave a fair description of the empirical data of journal impact factors. As the citation practices vary widely among different disciplines, impact factors can only be properly used to compare journals within the same discipline. Thus, mixing impact factors from different disciplines is not advocated. In some cases, however, the resultant distribution is smooth and conformed to the result within a single discipline, i.e., Lavalette distribution seems to provide a good fit when the data from two different disciplines are mixed together. We systematically explore the likelihood that the mixing of journal impact factors from different disciplines can be well described by a smooth distribution. We examine the capability of curve fitting of Lavalette distribution. We demonstrate that the combinations of two Lavalette distributions are not necessarily fitted well to a single Lavalette distribution. We suggest that the case of doublet, i.e., two identical datasets, can be taken as the criterion for the acceptance of goodness of fit. We distinguish two levels of fitting goodness: satisfied description and perfect description. Two parameters n and k are crucial. We use the approach of frequency distribution to show analytically that a satisfied description can be obtained when the parameter k from each distribution is close enough to one another. We also use the approach of curvature to show that the perfect description can be achieved when the difference in parameter k is small, the difference in parameter n is large, and a larger n is associated with a larger k. The satisfied description covers most of the empirical data. The perfect description is supported in some cases. We present both numerical and analytical results.

Abstract

Free convection of a micropolar fluid is examined analytically in order to see the effect of heat and mass transfer in concentric vertical cylinders. The model of governing equations in non-dimensional velocity, microrotational velocity and temperature using the Boussinesq and Eringen equation with suitable boundary conditions are expressed in terms of cylindrical coordinate system and then exact solution one obtained. The influence of the non-dimensional physical parameters such as the vortex viscosity ratio, material and temperature ratio parameters on the velocity, microrotational velocity and the skin friction at the surface of cylinder has been studied by using graphs and table.

Abstract

Nowadays, studying of the world ocean remains a priority for the world community. Many research complexes are being developed to solve problems in the field of hydrography. Autonomous underwater robotic vehicles are equipped with remote sensing system. Today, the problem of mapping the ocean floor using the side scan-sonars set on the board of an autonomous unmanned submersible is very topical and perspective. The functioning of the sonar is based on periodic emission of the pulsed sound signals and detection of the echo signals reflected from the distant segments of seabottom. The authors have considered a kinetic model of the propagation of an acoustic signal. The model describes high-frequency acoustic wave propagation in a fluctuating medium. The process of propagation of acoustic radiation is described by the transfer equation: $$\frac{1}{c} \frac{\partial I}{\partial t} + k \cdot \nabla_r I(r,k,t) + \mu I(r,k,t) = \frac{\sigma}{4\pi} \int\limits_{\Omega} I(r,k',t) dk'+J(r,k,t),$$ here $r \in \mathbb{R}^3$, $t \in [0,T]$, and the wave vector $k$ belongs to the unit sphere $\Omega = \{k \in \mathbb{R}^3 : |k| = 1\}$. The function $I(r,k,t)$ is interpreted as the energy flux density of the wave propagating in the direction $k$ with the velocity $c$ at the time $t$ at the point $r$. Functions $\mu$ and $\sigma$ denote coefficients of the attenuation and the scattering, whereas $J$ describes the source of the sound field. Initial and boundary conditions for the transfer equation, respectively: $$I|_{t=0} = 0 \\ I(y,k,t)= \frac{\sigma_d}{2\pi} \int\limits_{\Omega_+(y)} |n(y)\cdot k'| I(y,k',t) dk', $$ here $n(y)$ denotes the exterior normal to the boundary surface $\gamma$. $\sigma_d$ is the bottom scattering coefficient. $ \\ $ The authors have derived the solution for radiative transfer equation with a single scattering approximation. The impulse source and receiver are supposed to be located at the same point. The boundary conditions have a diffuse reflection obeys Lambert's cosine law. In 2D case, the problem reduces to solving differential equation for function of a sea bottom profile. The article has included a numerical analysis of the solution for the equation is carried out. The dependence of the reconstruction of the lower surface on the curvature of the function describing the relief is shown.

Abstract

We suggest a new atomistic method for efficient construction of edge and mixed type dislocations based on the introduction of four equispaced dislocations comprising a dislocation quadrupole. Contrary to all other currently used methods, our approach exactly preserves the topology of an ideal crystal with periodic boundary conditions even for small simulation volumes and, thus, restores the verity of the material frame indifference principle, broken in other techniques. A careful procedure for relaxation of atomic positions around a dislocation core has been developed which enables one to achieve arbitrary low dislocation densities characteristic for real crystals. As a demonstration of the method capabilities, we have constructed a sim- ulations volume with as low dislocation density as 1.5 · 1014m−2 , which is realistic in deformed crystals, and one can easily lower this value as desired. All details of dislocation construction process are explicitly specified, making it very easy to reproduce our results. FCC Al crystal is used as a test case.


MHD flow in a circular pipe with arbitrarily conducting slipping walls

Abstract

In this study, the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow is simulated in a circular pipe with slipping and arbitrarily conducting boundary. The electrically conducting fluid is interacted with the external magnetic field producing induced magnetic field in the pipe. The 2D governing coupled equations in terms of the velocity and the induced magnetic field are solved by the Dual Reciprocity Boundary Element Method (DRBEM). The MHD equations are transformed to boundary integral equations using the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, considering all the terms other than Laplacian as inhomogeneity. The discretized system of equations is solved in one stroke without introducing an iteration which reduces the computational cost. It is shown that, the flow decelerates, Hartmann layers enlarge through the top and the bottom of the pipe and induced current lines align as the wall conductivity or Hartmann number increases. An increase in the slip length accelerates the flow, shrinks the stagnant region, diminishes the boundary layers and retards the effect of the wall conductivity increase. The DRBEM is an advantageous method in solving MHD flow especially with slipping and arbitrarily conducting pipe wall, since it enables to insert both the unknowns and their normal derivatives with slip and conductivity wall conditions.

Abstract

In this study, the identification of the Hartmann number in the magnetohyrodynamic (MHD) flow equations is investigated through the inverse formulation in a duct with insulated but no-slip or variably slipping walls. The Cauchy MHD flow problem is constructed with the Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions for the velocity and the induced magnetic field, and also their internal values obtained from the direct solution corresponding to a specified Hartmann number. The solutions for direct and inverse problems are obtained through the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM), and the Tikhonov regularization with L-curve method is used for solving the ill-conditioned DRBEM discretized linear system of equations for inverse problem. The velocity and the induced magnetic field profiles are presented from the direct formulation for depicting the well-known MHD characteristics with increasing values of Hartmann number and slip length. The Hartmann number is reconstructed from the inverse problem with an accuracy of $10^{-6}$ in maximum error norm. The DRBEM discretizes only the boundary of the region and uses low number of arbitrary interior points. Thus, the important parameter, Hartmann number is regained at a small computational expense with the boundary and interior overdetermined information needed in the inverse MHD flow problem.

Abstract

Within the framework of the two-dimensional spatial economy, various forms of urban structures are considered. Since the number of structurally stable urban configurations is rather limited, structurally unstable formations are of great interest. For example, there are city models that behave near unstable singular points like a «running» wave. In this paper we consider a system of quasi-linear parabolic equations for two unknown functions: population density and, so-called, quality of housing stock. After some transformations of the required functions and variables we seek a self-similar solution in the form of a running wave with an unknown amplitude and velocity. Further the stability of the obtained solution is analyzed. To determine the role of the obtained particular (self-similar) solution, the Cauchy problem for different initial conditions is also solved numerically. The results of computational experiments show us that the analytical wave-like solution can be interpreted is an intermediate asymptotic for the partial differential problem which is being considered this paper.


Modeling logistically growing population in a river network

Olga Vasilyeva1

1Memorial University of Newfoundland, Grenfell Campus, Mathematics, Canada

Abstract

We study the population dynamics of aquatic organisms in a river network. The habitat is viewed as a tree-like metric graph with the population density satisfying a reaction-diffusion-advection equation on each segment along with the appropriate junction and boundary conditions. In the case of a linear reaction term, the question of persistence in such models was studied by Sarhad, Carlson and Anderson. We investigate the case of a logistic reaction term and obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of a positive steady state solution for an arbitrary river network. The conditions are formulated in terms of the lengths of river segments, their cross-section areas, and the hydrological and biological parameters (growth rate, carrying capacity, diffusivity and advection speed, all assumed to be constant throughout the network).

Geometry of the pore space and dynamic of pore and cracked media deforming

Boris Sibiryakov1

1Novosibirsk State University, Geophysics, Russian Federation

Abstract

In this paper presents the elements of blocked media deforming theory. It means that these media have a specific surface and (related with it) average distance from one crack (pore) to another one. This way requires the creation a new model of continuum, which is contains the integral geometry of pore space. The equations of motion and equilibrium are equations of the infinite order due to infinite numbers of freedom degrees. Along the usual seismic waves, these equations describe very slow waves, not bounded below and, besides of it, they predict the instable solutions, due to parametric resonances in structures bodies. The number of instable solutions corresponds to seismological Gutenberg-Richter law. The dispersion of an average size of structure produces both the fast catastrophes (small dispersion) and slow catastrophes compare to Rayleigh wave velocity (high dispersion).

Abstract

Global warming climate changes are observed in recent decades. These changes largely associated with anthropogenic increases in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The problem and opportunity of the global climate stabilization at a current level by means of geoengineering methods are investigated. The study is based on a three-dimensional hydrodynamic global climate coupled model, including ocean model with real depths and continents configuration, sea ice evolution model and energy and moisture balance atmosphere model. The climate prediction calculations up to the year 2100, using different CO2 growth scenario are carried out on the first stage. A series of numerical experiments were carried out to assess the possibility of climate stabilization at the level of the year 2010 by controlling emissions into the stratosphere of aerosol, reflecting a part of the incoming solar radiation. Evolution and sedimentation equation for sulphur aerosol mass calculation is considered. A uniform and zonal stratospheric aerosol space distribution was investigated. It is shown that by this way it is impossible to achieve the space and seasonal uniform approximation to the existing climate, although it is possible significantly reduce the greenhouse warming effect. The Pareto optimal frontier was investigated and visualized for two parameters - atmospheric temperature MSD for the winter and summer seasons.

Abstract

In this work we present a mathematical model and simulation technique for the analysis of hydraulic fracture propagation (HF) in fully 3D setting and accounting for all major flow and geomechanical effects. The approach can be used for hydraulic fracture design as well as for analysis of such processes as production/injection stress re-orientation, spontaneous fracture growth during reservoir development etc. The reservoir is described by 3D Biot poroelastic model which couples flow and mechanical processes in medium. The fracture is described as an arbitrary sufficiently smooth surface with boundary. The flow in fracture is described by 2D Reynolds lubrication equation. Only simple Newtonian flow model will be considered but generalizations to more realistic rheological models are straightforward. These (sub)models (for the fracture and for the reservoir) are coupled by appropriate interface conditions which ensure continuity of mass and momentum fluxes at the fracture/reservoir interface. The complete model is fully coupled and self consistent. The numerical approach is based on finite elements method. To account for discontinuous displacement and pressure fields an eXtended Finite Element (X-FEM) method is used [1]. In contrast to most X-FEM implementations we do not use level set approach for fracture representation and evolution [2,3]. Instead the so called closest point projection method is utilized for both solution of the fracture flow Reynolds lubrication equations [4] and fracture geometry representation and evolution in the X-FEM context. The vector version of J-integral for poroelastic medium was used for describing pointwise direction field of fracture evolution. The unified way of HF representation provides flexibility and efficiency of the complete coupled algorithm. The complete system of equations is solved in a partitioned way which provides flexibility for applications. The applicability of developed techniques is demonstrated by a number of simulation results. The research was supported by RSF (project No. 15-11-00021).

Quasihomogeneous Infinite Systems of Linear Algebraic Equations

Abstract

It is known that infinite systems of linear algebraic equations had been applied extensively in solving problems of mechanics and physics. Since the beginning of the last century and up to the present time, infinite systems have been used to solve various problems of the static theory of elasticity. The various problems of the theory of diffraction, the theory of electric circuits, the theory of waveguides, the variety of problems in natural science and technology, for example, in the theory of cybernetic systems, in queuing theory, in quantum chemistry, etc., are solved using infinite systems. But the further broad practical application of infinite systems is greatly limited by the insufficient development of the theory of these systems. In particular, the question of the uniqueness of the solution of infinite systems remains open. This is because that solving the corresponding homogeneous system is a much more difficult task than solving the inhomogeneous system. The solving of homogeneous infinite systems is connected with the study of special infinite systems, the so-called quasihomogeneous systems. Such systems are found, for example, in the theory of electrical circuits. An infinite system of linear algebraic equations is quasihomogeneous, if the finite amount of numbers on the right hand side are not equal to 0, and the infinite amount of them are equal to 0. In this paper, we develop a numerical algorithm for finding the solution of quasihomogeneous infinite systems. In particular, it has been shown that such systems can behave both as "purely"\,inhomogeneous, and as almost homogeneous systems depending on the coefficients of the system.

Abstract

The near-electrode thin layer of a magnetic fluid is an active medium in which an autowave process was experimentally observed in an electric field. Authors propose a system of autowave process equations, based on the FitzHugh-Nagumo model: $$\dot{V} = D\Delta V + \frac{(\alpha - V)(V - 1)V - W}{1 + 2\varphi} \\ \dot{I} = \varepsilon (1 + \frac{\varphi}{1.5})( \beta V - \gamma I - \delta)$$ where V is a function that depends on the field strength in a thin near-electrode layer of a magnetic fluid (activator), I is the function associated with a charge change (inhibitor), the coefficients are responsible for the properties of the oscillating medium: α is the excitation limit, ε is the excitability. Coefficient φ (x, y), defined by authors, is the deceleration factor – it allows the properties of the medium modification near the obstacle to be included into the model. A solution of the system in COMSOL Multiphysics was obtained. Phase portraits and zero isoclines for the activator and inhibitor are constructed, special points and stationary solutions are found. The typical autowave effect – obstacle bending – is investigated in details. It is established that autowaves change its speed near the obstacle. The solution obtained allows us to identify areas with different periods of refractoriness, depending on the geometry and dimensions of the obstacle. A similar situation can actually occur in the heart muscle, when the period of refractoriness of myocardium individual parts increases due to the necrosis of the tissue in a heart attack. This is the practical significance of this work.

Abstract

We are considering a numerical method that is applied in rectangular domains to find numerical solution of the initial-boundary value problems for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. It uses nodal Finite Element approach to reconstruct pressure and Finite Difference method for other parts of the equations. This approach benefits from usage of simple finite difference schemes for linear parts (compact difference schemes) and WENO-type schemes for the the nonlinear part. Finite element is formulated in terms of pressure values in vertexes of elements to form matrix equations. This is a combination of finite element method and difference methods. Let us consider the Navier-Stokes system for velocity vector function $\mathbf{u}$, pressure scalar function $p$ and external force vector function $\mathbf{f}$ in rectangular domain $\Omega$: $$\partial_t \mathbf{u}+(\mathbf{u}, \nabla) \mathbf{u}+\nabla p=\mu \Delta \mathbf{u}+\mathbf{f},$$ $$\nabla \cdot \mathbf{u}=0,$$ with appropriate initial and boundary conditions. We use projection method to recover pressure and enforce incompressibility. Let us introduce rectangular cuboids $W_{jkl}$ that from a 3D tessellation of a rectangular domain $\Omega=\bigcup_{\mathbf{j}}^{}W_{\mathbf{j}}$, where $\mathbf{j}$ is a multi index in 3D. We introduce another set of tessellation $U_{\mathbf{k}}$ that is constructed from swapping central nodes and vertexes, thus each vertex of $W_{\mathbf{j}}$ becomes a geometric center for $U_{\mathbf{k}}$ and vice versa. We define trilinear or spline basis functions in an element $Q_{\mathbf{k}}$, where $Q$ can be $W$ or $U$. Now we consider a set of points $\mathbf{j}$ formed by the centers of $W_{\mathbf{j}}$ or vertexes of $U_{\mathbf{k}}$. Such elements can be considered as finite volumes, i.e. $\overline P_{\mathbf{j}}=\int_{W_{\mathbf{j}}} P(\mathbf{x}) d\mathbf{x}$. We now define Laplace operator $\mathtt{L}$ and gradient operator $\mathtt{Q}$ in the space of nodal finite elements $W$. We also define Laplace operator $\mathtt{A}$, divergence operator $\mathtt{G}$ and nonlinear operator $\mathtt{B}(\cdot,\cdot)$ in the space of finite volumes $W$ (using finite difference schemes). We also define projection of nodal operator to central finite volume point as $\mathcal{W}$ and projection of central finite difference operator to nodes as $\mathcal{U}$. The first operation is performed using finite element expension provided above with $Q:=W$ and the second operation is the inverse of the expansion with $Q:=U$. In this case we introduce temporal grid with grid slices denoted $l$ and time step $\Delta t$ and propose the following scheme: $$ \left \{ \begin{matrix} \mathbf{u}^*=\mathbf{u}^l+\Delta t \mathbf{f}^l + \Delta t \mathtt{B}(\mathbf{u}^l,\mathbf{u}^l) + \Delta t \mathtt{A} \mathbf{u}^*- \beta \Delta t \mathcal{W}\mathtt{Q}p^l,\\ \mathtt{L} \phi=-1/\Delta t \mathcal{U} \mathtt{G} \mathbf{u}^{*},\\ \left \{ \begin{matrix} \mathbf{u}^{l+1}=\mathbf{u}^*-\Delta t \mathcal{W} \mathtt{Q} \phi,\\ p^{l+1}=\beta p^{l}+\phi. \end{matrix} \right. \end{matrix} \right .$$ Here $0 \leq \beta \leq 1$ is the relaxation parameter. For the scheme we can prove the following $$\textbf{Proposition} \textit{The Ladijenskaya-Babuska-Brezzi (LBB)}$$ $$\textit{$inf$-$sup$ condition for the presented scheme is satisfied.}$$ Using the proposed scheme we can show that the approximation is of order $\mathcal{O}(\Delta t)$ for velocity terms. We improve temporal approximation by using either explicit Runge Kutta 3-d order method or Diagonally Implicit Runge Kutta method. The method is implemented under the heterogeneous computational architecture aimed on the utilization of graphical processing units (GPUs). We show parallel efficiency of the method and demonstrate space-time convergence of the method using exact Navier-Stokes solutions (Taylor-Green vortex and Shapiro solutions). We also demonstrate the method capabilities in performing direct numerical simulation of the Rayleigh - Benard convection problem in a cubic domain.

Abstract

The present work is dedicated to the solving the fundamental scientific problem of modern fractal optics. It is associated with the establishing of general regularities that determine the relationship between the features of the structure of fractal-like objects and their spectral characteristics. Finding these laws will enable to develop new diagnostic tools for research of fractal-like objects and processes for their formation. Nanocluster systems and multilayer structures, including metamaterial inserts, were chosen as the objects of research. The choice of a wide range of objects of different physical nature is due to the penetration of fractal optics into a system of interdisciplinary technologies and theoretical concepts. Particular attention is paid to the study of the scaling of the analyzed objects structures and their optical characteristics. On the basis of theoretical studies of the distribution of the amplitude and phase of light waves that diffract or interfere on the analyzed objects the features of scaling in light fields are determined. When analyzing the obtained modeling results, a comparison between the features of the structure of the analyzed objects with the scaling parameters in diffraction patterns and transmission spectra is made.

Abstract

We study the asymptotic as $t\to\infty$ behavior of solutions $u(x,t)$ of the initial boundary value problems for a second-order hyperbolic equation with periodic coefficients on the semi-axis. In the case of non-homogeneous equation, initial and boundary data are zero, and the right-hand side of the equation is of the form $f(x)exp(-i\omega t)$, where $\omega >0$ is real.

Abstract

Femtosecond laser filamentation is a result of dynamic balance of Kerr-induced self-focusing and laser-induced plasma defocusing. The filament is a coupled system of laser plasma (the core) and electromagnetic radiation around it (the reservoir). The energy in the reservoir is used to form the core, and if the reservoir of the filament is blocked (e.g. using a diaphragm), the filament can no longer propagate. While several purely optical methods of filament investigation have been developed, there is a lack of methods for direct reservoir imaging. Photoacoustic tomography is a well-developed imaging method based on the local non-stationary thermoelastic expansion of the medium and generation of acoustic pressure waves. Since both the filament core and the reservoir create a thermal source due to plasma recombination and optical absorption respectively, photoacoustic tomography can be a promising method for identification of the location and the size of the core as well as for reservoir imaging. In order to preserve the wide bandwidth of acoustic signals, broadband (~100 MHz) piezoelectric crystals (e.g. lithium niobate) should be used to record them. Moreover the acoustic attenuation and finite size of the piezoelectric sensor limit the spatial resolution of the optoacoustic imaging, and at the "water-sensor" interface the refraction of acoustic waves occurs due to the speed of sound mismatch. In this work, the semi-analytical model for fast calculation of the acoustic signals from the filament (forward problem) is presented. The model uses the approximation of geometrical acoustics to account for the refraction at a plane "water-sensor" interface and a representation of a filament that allows for a semi-analytical solution accounting for acoustic attenuation. The approximation of geometrical acoustics is used to modify the 2D back-projection algorithm for photoacoustic image reconstruction (inverse problem). The results of numerical simulation are compared with the experimental results. The model is intended to help optimize the experimental setup for photoacoustic imaging of femtosecond laser filaments in water.

Free Boundary Method for Calculating Compressible Viscous Flows on Unfitted Meshes

Abstract

We develop the finite-volume method for solving compressible non-stationary Navier-Stokes equations in geometrically complex domains with using simple unfitted Cartesian grids. This method belongs to the class of immersed boundary methods when an extended region including both the fluid flow domain and the solid geometry is discretized in space with a simple, in most cases Cartesian mesh that is unfitted to the solid surface. To treat numerically the inner boundary conditions on that surface in cut cells, the method named as Free Boundary Method (FBM) has been proposed in [1-3] for the Euler model of inviscid gas dynamics equations. The method is based on the Godunov approach with the numerical flux approximation based on the exact solution to the Riemann problem. The calculation is executed over the set of actual mesh cells containing both fluid and cut cells in a manner as there would be no presence of solid surface in cut cells. The effect of the solid surface is taken into account by means of the compensating flux applied on the element of solid surface in the cut cell. This flux is introduced to compensate losses in mass, momentum, and energy which occur when we virtually remove the solid element from the cut cell. It can be proven that the solution of the initial value (Cauchy) problem with the compensating flux embedded in the governing equations in the extended domain is equivalent to the solution of the conventional boundary value problem in the fluid flow subdomain. This approach is extended to the Navier-Stokes equations. We show how the viscous compensating flux should be introduced to assure the adequate solution in the flow domain, discuss its discrete approximation, and propose the numerical method for solving the system of discrete equations. The calculation algorithm is homogeneous; all computational cells are treated in a unique manner. The only difference in computing fluid and cut cells is adding the compensating flux in summation of conventional fluxes. Calculation of the compensating flux requires a few data about the solid geometry in the cut cell, namely fluid volume fraction, area of the solid element and its unit normal, and baricentric coordinates of the fluid sub-element. All the data can be obtained from the level set method for setting the solid geometry. Numerical results concern testing the FBM on the solution of several benchmark viscous problems of aerodynamics.

Abstract

The main goal of this article is to conceive an algorithm for a software application designed to solve many power engineering optimization problems applying the critical path method (CPM). The classical solution for these problems is found via the schedule graph (the Gantt method), which presents a series of shortcomings: it does not highlight clearly the interdependencies between operations, it does not explain the temporal coincidences, it does not indicate the alternatives of declaring the various operations, it does not have a rigorous mathematical foundation, it does not allow any studies of optimization. All the shortcomings are cleared when using the representation of the program via a graph, where the values of the arcs are the durations of the component operations, and applying the critical path method (CPM), which mainly consists in determining a path of a maximum value between two peaks of that graph. Using CPM offers a great number of advantages: it offers a clear image of the evolution in time of the program, it allows the decreasing of the total duration of realization for the program without condensing the component operation, it highlights the operations that directly determine the duration of realization of the program, as well as those that allow the redistribution of the resources and the reduction of cost; it offers the alternative of rapid evaluation of the consequences of certain delays in realizing certain operations (without totally rebuilding the graph and the calculations); it can be easily implemented on a computer, having a solid mathematical base. Applying CPM and optimizing the program is achieved via the following steps: a) setting the list of the component operations, of their characteristics and representing the program via graphs; b) setting the graphs in order; c) determining the critical path (CP) and its value; d) calculating the time stocks related to the realization of the component operation (using the Ford and the Bellman-Kalaba algorithms); e) optimizing the program as from the length, the cost and the necessary resources points of view. For illustrating the algorithm and the computing program we propose an application from power engineering: a 400 kV electrical overhead line section construction. In the first part of the paper we present the application as a critical path problem. In the second part, we determine the critic path in a program graph and time reserves. In the third part, we present a representative numerical application. In the fourth part, it is described the computing program.

The influence of nonlocal scale of single nano-beams with attached spring mass on critical load is consider for both cases of analyzing loads and the obtained results are compared with the results from local theory. The proposed algorithm is based on exact solutions of motion equations for segments separated in the beam with boundary and continuity conditions. The effect different value of the nonlocal parameter, tangency coefficient, spring coefficient and distributed of mass on stability are discussed.

Abstract

In recent years diverse mathematical physics models became widely used in practice as a great implement for describing economical and physical phenomena. Modeling of the market of derivatives, in particular case, computation of European option rational price, is carried out with Black-Scholes equation, which in terms of constant volatility and non-dividend situation has the well-known analytical solve. Several generalizations of Black-Scholes model were suggested to reach better conformity between the results of mathematical modeling and the real market figures. In these generalized models volatility depends on the desirable function in a rather complicated way. Surveyed are Leland model, Frey-Patie model and also the model of indefinite volatility, which vary from minimum to maximum value. In order to calculate the numerical solution of this mixed task the scheme with scales, which has the second approximation order on the coordinate and time, is used for the equation of parabolic type. Series of computing experiments which allow to compare the results of analytic and numerical analysis were conducted for the different range of parameters. According to the results of computer simulation, generalized non-linear Black-Scholes equation describes the real market simulation describes the real market situation with a very close approximation.

Abstract

Operating at absolute minimum cost can no longer be the only criterion for dispatching electric power due to increasing concern the environmental consideration. The environmentally constrained economic dispatch problem which accounts for minimization of both cost and emission is a multiple objective function problem. In this paper, tabu search is used to solve the economic dispatch problems for a couple of reasons. The modified tabu search algorithm uses a real-valued solution vector and adaptive mechanism for producing neighbors. However, the classical TS algorithm uses a binary solution vector. The neighbors are produced by adding an adjusted coefficient at each iteration. This neighbor production mechanism enables us to find the most promising region of the searched space. The proposed method has achieved efficient and accurate solutions for power systems with 3, 6, 10, 20, 40, 80, 120, 160 and 240 units respectively. The results of the proposed method are compared with those of an improved Hopfield neural network approach, an advance engineered-conditioning genetic approach, an advance Hopfield neural network approach and a fuzzy logic controlled genetic algorithm. It will demonstrate that the proposed method is superior in providing optimal allocation of generation units which minimizes the total fuel cost. Simulation results show that the proposed method yields better solutions when compared to the alternate techniques.

Abstract

Advances in nanofabrication techniques have made it possible to make ultra-thin layer superconductors in which a superconducting sample are connected to non-superconducting component, but also self-assembly of magnetic molecules on solid surfaces that allow to create a new two-dimensional (2D) hybrid superconducting system. Here, we study properties of superconducting vortices in the thin layer of lead (Pb) with inclusion of central stripe of niobium (Nb) in the the presence of external magnetic field. Our primary findings include a substantial controllability of the fundamental superconducting parameters through changing the wide of central stripe that allows the manipulation of magnetic flux quanta.The present study opens a route for designing and creating exotic 2D superconductors with an atomic-scale precision.

Types of tensors in Newtonian physics and the development of the foundations of classical continuum mechanics

George Brovko1

1Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Russian Federation

Abstract

In the Newtonian approach to the description of movements and interactions of bodies, the concepts of objective tensors of various ranks and types are introduced, differing in the rules of transformation when replacing the reference frame. The tough classification of objective tensors is given including tensors of material and spatial types, the diagrams are constructed for non-degenerate ("analogous") relations between tensors of one and the same (any) rank and of various types of objectivity. Mappings and equations expressing dependence between objective tensor processes of various ranks and types are considered, and the fundamental concepts of frame-independence of such mappings and equations are introduced as being inherent to constitutive relations of various physical and mechanical properties in Newtonian approach. The criteria for such frame-independence are established. Simultaneously revealed became the mathematical restrictions imposed on the frame-independent mappings and equations by the objectivity types of connected tensors. The absence of such restrictions is established exclusively for mappings and equations linking tensors of material types. Using this, a generalizing concept of objective differentiation of tensor processes in time and a new concept of objective integration are introduced. The axiomatic construction of the generalized theory of stress and strain tensors in continuum mechanics is given, which leads to the emergence of continuum classes and families of new tensor measures. The axioms are proposed and a variant of the general theory of constitutive relations of mechanical properties of continuous media is constructed, generalizing the known approaches by Ilyushin and Noll, taking into account the possible presence of internal kinematic constraints and internal body-forces in the body. The concepts of the process image and the properties of the five-dimensional Ilyushin’s isotropy are generalized on the range of finite strains.

Abstract

The paper covers the area of block-structured adaptive grid generation for finite-difference, finite-element, and finite-volume methods. It deals with a problem of development of information technologies and algorithms for generation of such grids in complex geometries. Its key idea is to bring together the different existing techniques for computer-aided geometric design of domains, grid generation, and subdivision. The methods used for the construction of domain geometries and working with block-structured quasi-continuous grids are discussed. The results in the generation of three-dimensional adaptive grids for the domain of external flow near a hemisphere, flow around a surface of the high-speed aircraft of the Falcon HTV-2 type and for the domain of the gap between a wheel and body of an aircraft are analyzed. The presented methods and algorithms for grid generation has the following advantages: (1) the grids are structured and mesh cells are hexahedra in the entire domain, (2) the grids can be applied for finite-difference methods, (3) the grid lines are adjusting with the flow in the whole domain.


To the Linearization Problem for Single-Input Control Affine Systems

Dmitry Fetisov1

1Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Mathematical Modeling, Russian Federation

Abstract

State feedback linearization is well-known as an effective tool to solve various problems for nonlinear control systems. An affine system is called to be state feedback linearizable if there exist smooth invertible changes of the state and the inputs which transform the system into a linear controllable system. If an affine system is not state feedback linearizable one can try to use orbital feedback linearization. An affine system is called to be orbital feedback linearizable if there exists time scaling which transforms the system into a state feedback linearizable system. As usual for affine systems, time scaling is considered to be depending only on the state. Recently, it has been shown that if time scaling depends both on the state and on the inputs, then it becomes possible to linearize affine systems which are not orbital feedback linearizable. In this paper, while considering such transformations, we suggest the new sufficient condition for linearizability of single-input control affine systems. We derive a system of partial differential equations which has to be solved in order to find an appropriate time scaling. We provide en example how the proposed approach can be applied to solve a terminal problem.

Modeling of High-Speed Motor Drive Systems Considering Two Kinds of Vibrations

Shun Kuroki1

1Chiba University, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Japan

Abstract

In order to realize energy-saving motor drive systems, the energy consumed by the motor drive must be reduced as more as possible. For this purpose, the use of magnetic bearing (MB) and low inertia shaft are two promising options. MB is friction-free due to its noncontact support property. Meanwhile, the reduction of shaft inertia leads to low vibration frequencies (flexible mode velocities) which imposes a great challenge for the control system. There are two kinds of vibrations in high-speed rotation: one is the bending vibration caused by the decentering of shaft, the other is the torsional vibration caused by disproportion among rotation systems. When driving the motor beyond the flexible mode velocity, it is necessary to model the motor drive system considering the flexible vibrations. In particular, at high-speed rotations these two motions couple with each other. Though the modeling of shaft's torsional vibration is well studied, the bending vibration was ignored up to now such as in the studies on magnetic bearing system. In this paper, we propose a new and integrated model for motor drives including both the bending vibration and the torsional vibration as well as the gyroscopic effect. Special attention is paid to the coupling of these two kinds of vibrations. The approach is based on Lagrangian mechanics and the precise computation of the energies in the bending vibration and the torsion vibration from the viewpoint of flexible material mechanics. Numerical simulations validated that the behavior of the derived model is consistent with the physics. In particular, it was shown that when the motor speed got closer to the critical speed, the coupling between the bending vibration and the torsional vibration was excited, which must be considered in the control design. This model forms the first step toward the construction of a safe, energy-saving and high performance motor drive control system for high-speed and high-power motors.

Abstract

We study self-organization in a nonlinear optical system with a feedback loop, where light is delayed and undergoes a spatial transformation within the thin annulus aperture. The dynamics of the system are modelled by a quasilinear functional differential diffusion equation on a circle that tracks the effects of diffraction by means of a coupled linear Schrodinger equation. We prove the existence of rotating wave solutions and study their stability by constructing the Faria normal form of a Hopf bifurcation.

Abstract

The propagation of laser radiation in a turbulent medium (atmosphere) is considered on the basis of the stochastic Schrödinger equation with higher nonlinearities in terms of statistics. This problem is a stochastic problem with multiplicative noises. A general method is proposed that allows us to reduce this class of problems to an equivalent quantum field model. On the basis of this method, an equivalent quantum-theoretical model is formulated that makes it possible to obtain the Fokker-Planck equation for the system under consideration, as well as the expression for the equilibrium state of the physical system under consideration. On the basis of the numerical approach, the stationary solution is investigated from the point of view of searching for the statistics of extreme values ​​of the field.

Abstract

Urban problems have become very complicated as a result of technological progress and change in the behavior of human beings. The urban systems of our epoch are characterized by increasing spatial and temporal variation. Many urban models have been suggested to explain and forecast urban pattern formation in urban economics, regional science and geography. Within the framework of the spatial economy model, equilibrium states of commodity flows and labor, which are described by two-dimensional vector fields, are considered. These configurations are obtained on the assumption of the validity of divergent and gradient laws, which characterize the influence on the commodity flows and labor by external factors, such as the distance from the places of habitation of labor to industrial objects, the local costs of transportation and so on. The structural stability of such a system for various types of configuration perturbations is investigated. It is very difficult to obtain general characteristics of structurally stable systems, but in the two-dimensional case it turns out to be possible to draw precise picture of structurally stable flows and spatial organization of the economy corresponding to such flows. In the paper possible flow structures for a hyperbolic umbilical for a cubic potential function that depends on three parameters are constructed numerically in accordance with the concept of catastrophe theory. Bifurcation varieties are found in the parameter space, flux fields for various parameter combinations are constructed. A qualitative change in the character of the flow structure in the neighborhood of a bifurcation manifold is demonstrated.

Abstract

The propagation of high-power laser radiation in a medium with saturable cubic self-focusing on the basis of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation is studied. It is shown that under certain conditions this system exhibits superfluidity properties. Numerical schemes are considered for numerical realization of this effect. It is shown that numerical schemes based on the discrete difference approximation of the NLS equations possess the best properties from the point of view of the conservation laws. An effective parallel algorithm for solving the nonlinear Schrödinger equation on an no-uniform grid is realized. Accurate numerical integration is employed to study the general nonlinear evolution of the system from the unstable stationary solutions to the formation of stable vortex patterns.

Abstract

Recently it has been paid a substantial attention for simulation of high velocity and penetration problems using Eulerian formulations for solid mechanics with finite strain. The main advantage of such approach is possibility to handle extreme deformations when for the application of the more traditional arbitrary Eulerian-Lagrangian formulations it is difficult. The natural mathematical model for the considered class of applications has a form of the first-order hyperbolic systems of conservation laws in the Eulerian reference frame [1]. This model is proposed by Godunov and Romenski [2] and has a number of characteristic features from more traditional second-order systems employed in elasticity. The most important one is the presence of a complex structure of contact, shock and rarefaction waves and their interactions. Numerical solution of such problems is a difficult task due to a complex wave structure of the solution. Recently a number of efficient approaches were presented to handle the problem. Most of them are based on linearized HLL type solvers and high order WENO reconstruction techniques to obtain accurate fronts resolution in order to resolve complex solution structure. In this paper we apply high order RKDG method as an alternative to WENO schemes to solve the problem. Up to 5-th order reconstruction is considered with different limiting techniques and 3-rd order timestepping scheme. As a trial problem a one dimensional hyperelastic formulation is presented similar to [1] for a number of test case. The developed computer code utilizes automatic differentiation (AD) approach which allows for an easy switch of underlying EOS and strain measure. The presented results will cover discussion of the problem statement, corresponding RKDG approximations and simulation results which demonstrate possibilities of the RKDG approach applied for the hyperbolic hyperelastic formulations in the Eulerian reference frame.

Abstract

The properties of the motion integral and evolution of the e ective radius of a light beam are analyzed within the framework of the stationary model of the nonlinear Schrdinger equation describing lamentation. A completely conservative numerical scheme for the nonlinear Schrdinger equation is developed. Within the framework of this model, it is shown that lamentation is limited only by dissipative mechanisms. An inverse variational problem is solved for the nonlocal nonlinear Schrdinger equation used in simulation of lamentation in various nonlinear media. The corresponding integral relations, which generalize the conservation laws for the non-conservative case, are derived.

Abstract

R. Y. Gerasimov, Y. V. Gerasimov, G. N. Fadeev Bauman Moscow State Technical University The proposed new method based on the spectra of radio wave radiation of the microwave range wideband scanning receiver. It is experimentally proved that this method has a high accuracy in the determination of the frequency spectrum. This allows to reach a sensitivity of 5-6 Hz/nm. The obtained spectra are analyzed for the particular program hardware-software complex. Practice has shown that the proposed method allows not only to detect the difference of the substances qualitative composition and concentration, but also to determine the presence of heavy and superheavy hydrogen isotopes in water. The method for determining the presence of substances in nanoscopic amounts is based on the registration of radio-wave emission spectra in the microwave region using a scanning wideband receiver [1]. This radiation arises owing to the excitation of alternate high-frequency displacement and conduction currents in an object subjected to testing between the flexible plates of a capacitive working sensor. The results from measurements (the obtained spectra) are analyzed using a hardware–software complex. SUMMARY 1. The method of radioscopy in the microwave range, allows you to explore the fluid system, by comparing the spectra of the pure solvent (reference samples) and solutions. 2. In this work, the parameters of the spectra of the standard with bidistilled water and aqueous solutions: individual substances in the analyzed water; the difference of the concentrations of dissolved substances; evaluation of isotopic composition in the system of hydrogen isotopes. 3. It was established experimentally that this method can detect the presence of small quantities of heavy (D) and superheavy (T) hydrogen isotopes in ordinary (H2O) and heavy (D2О) water. REFERENCES 1.

Abstract

The Wang-Landau (WL) algorithm has been successfully applied to study the different types of phenomena, including statistical physics models, protein molecules (2017 J. Phys.: Conf. Ser. 905 012016), complex fluids, polymers (2013, Polym. Sci. Ser. C, 55, 23-38) etc. The main advantage of this algorithm is that thermodynamic state functions (free energy, entropy etc.) may be calculated by means of one simulation in a wide range of temperatures. In addition, the algorithm allows to visit all the accessible phase states much faster than a Metropolis algorithm. WL algorithm performs a random walk to obtain the density of states. Often, we need probability distribution not only for the energy but also for another parameter, for example, magnetization. In that case, two-dimensional or joint density of states (JDOS) should be estimated by random walk both in the energy and in this parameter. However, the calculation JDOS by WL algorithm requires huge computational time. There are some modifications of WL algorithm to build JDOS: global updates (2006, Phys. Rev. Lett., 96, 120201), two levels method (2016, J Stat Phys, 163, 197–209), transition matrix algorithm (2014, J. Phys.: Conf. Ser., 487, 012002). In this work, we employ the modified parallel WL algorithm for JDOS, which combines global updates and two levels method. This algorithm was illustrated on the three-dimensional Ising and Potts model.

Abstract

The paper presents the results of optimization of the flight program for a passenger aircraft. In mathematical modeling, real operational limitations and possible changes in atmospheric parameters were taken into account. The mathematical model is characterized by the description of the flight of an airplane as a material point and the description of a gas turbine engine by a model of the first level of accuracy. The following operational limitations were considered: the possibility of cruising at certain levels, the restriction on the vertical speed with a decrease, the possibility of transition to the next echelon with an available stock of thrust of 20%. The optimization of the flight program is based on the criterion of the minimum amount of fuel expended for the flight, at a given range. Calculations were conducted for several standards of air temperature change, (depending on the climatic zone). A comparative analysis of the obtained optimization results is carried out, the degree of influence of the change in atmospheric conditions is estimated. When comparing flights in different climatic zones, the fuel costs were compared for a flight program optimized for the given atmospheric conditions and for a flight program optimized for use in the mathematical model of the standard international atmosphere.

Abstract

The present paper is devoted to numerical simulation of two-phase two-component isothermal viscous compressible microflows with surface tension and wetting effects within complex voxel-based flow domains. As a basic mathematical model the Navier-Stokes-Cahn-Hilliard (NSCH) equations are utilized. To use easy-to-implement explicit finite difference approximations we take advantage of regularized (within quasi-hydrodynamic framework) version of NSCH system. The simulation results demonstrate that the developed algorithm for the NSCH system is correct and suitable for solution of industrial level problems thus being a promising technique for simulation of multiphase microflows within complex geometries, including geophysical <> framework.

Abstract

Arutyunov^1 $$ $$^1 Semenov\,Institute\,of\,Chemical\,Physics\,(ICP\,RAS),\,Moscow,\,Russia $$ $$^2 Lomonosov\,Moscow\,State\,University,\,Faculty\,of\,Computational\,Mathematics\,and\,Cybernetics\,(CMC),\,Moscow,\,Russia$$ Associated petroleum gases (APG) is a mixture of light alkanes from C1 to C5 and higher dissolved in oil, which releases from it as a result of pressure drop at oil extraction on surface. The main component of APG, as well as natural gas, is methane. However, the presence of significantly higher concentrations of heavy methane homologues with a low detonation resistance makes APG unsuitable for direct use as fuel for gas piston engines that form the basis of a distributed power generation grid in the range up to 5 MW. Since the profitability of all methods of extraction or chemical transformation of these heavy components decreases sharply with the increasing of the depth of purification or conversion of these impurities, it is very important to determine the necessary cleaning depth, sufficient to achieve the required detonation resistance. One of the most informative and demonstrative parameters that determine the detonation characteristics of gas mixtures is the delay in their self-ignition. Unfortunately, in the world literature there are practically no systematic data on delays of self-ignition even for binary mixtures of methane with its heavier homologues, not to mention the more complex mixtures corresponding to the compositions of real APG. The paper presents the results of computer simulation of self-ignition delays for binary and complex methane-alkane-air mixtures with alkanes C2-C6. For modeling, the NUI Galway (Natural Gas II) kinetic model and its reduced version were used. The model of the Calorimetric Bomb Reactor (CBR, V = const) was used. Results were compared with specially conducted experiments in Closed Bomb Reactor and demonstrated very well correlation. Therefore, the elaborated reduced model can be used for the calculation of self-ignition delays for complex methane-alkane-air mixtures.


A Pure Mathematical Argument for Finiteness of Velocity of Material Objects

Vadim Matveev1

1Midas marketing UAB, Vilnius, Research and Development Group, Lithuania

Abstract

Purely by mathematical means a theorem of the finiteness of the velocity of material bodies is proved without reference to the special theory of relativity. If in material bodies there are always present massless interaction signals and carrier particles that are propagated at a velocity, V, greater than any achieved velocity of the material bodies moreover the massless interaction signals and carrier particles traveling the mean free path, λ, collide with elements of these bodies committing interactions and continuously initiating processes in all bodies then the velocity, V, of massless interaction signals and carrier particles at the distance L > λ is finite. Leaving out of account the limitation of velocity coming from the special theory of relativity we a priori admit the existence of unlimited velocities, v, of material bodies and particles that may have any value. Nevertheless, the velocities of the material bodies are assumed to be less than the signal and carrier particles velocity, V, i.e. v < V. We prove logically that according to the condition of the theorem there is a limit to the allowable achieved velocity of material bodies, admitting that without the condition there is no such limiting velocity. First we ask ourselves question: “What does the concept “instantaneously” mean”? In a metrological sense “instantaneously” means a vanishing time interval between emission and return of the body. In a physical sense “instantaneously” means that no physical process or change of a system can occur between these events. The emission time and the return time must merge together in this instance. We considered a situation with a material body at rest at point, O, and a massless signal travelling a distance, 2L, from point, O, to point, A, and back. While the massless particle outside the body travels the distance, 2L, then inside the material body at rest n signals are committing a certain kind of interaction, and there occur 2nL/λ events in the body, where λ is the average free path of the signals committing this kind of interaction within the body, and it is assumed that λ < L. Since there are interactions and processes in the body, it will change in time, and therefore an arbitrarily accurate clock will show a non-vanishing time interval during the travel of the signal.

Abstract

The transport of oxygen and the essential metabolites throughout the body and the supply of tissues is the main function of the circulatory system. Convection in blood flow and diffusive exchange between blood and surrounding tissues provides effective organ perfusion. For correct functioning of the system rigid constraints should be imposed on the structure of the vasculature. In particular, the delivery of oxygen and other metabolites by diffusion to all cells of the body depends significantly on the spatial arrangement of the vessels, while the network topology and the diameters and lengths of the vessels strongly influence the blood flow distribution. In the present study we have proposed the algorithm for construction of the arterial system of the rat brain, which describes both the main arteries and smaller vessels. In the proposed approach the vasculature is divided into two parts with different modeling methods. The first one includes the main arteries forming the Circle of Willis, which were realized as an ordered set of cylinders. The radii and coordinates of the cylinders were assigned. The second part is a stochastic structure that describes smaller vessels branching from the main arteries, which were modeled as a binary tree according to the physiological laws. The distribution of the bifurcation level follows the gamma distribution with the small deviations in the region corresponding to the vessels of the basic structure. The modal level of the branch order which is necessary for effective perfusion is achieved when the bifurcation exponent is higher than 2.9. Despite the fact that the lower limit of symmetry is not changed with an increase of the bifurcation exponent, analysis of the vasculature symmetry showed that the density of vessels with a symmetry value above 0.5 increases significantly.


A variational approach to wear contact problems

Aleksandr Bobylev1

1Lomonosov Moscow State University, Department of Theory of Elasticity, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Russian Federation

Abstract

Both plane and axisymmetric wear contact problems for elastic semi-infinite bodies with a thin non-uniform coating and finite rigid punches are considered. The coating is modelled by an elastic layer of the Winkler type. Only nominal contact zones are assumed to be known. Real contact areas that may change due to wear are unknown and have to be defined. The variational approach is used to solve the wear contact problems. The variational formulation of the problems in the form of a system of an evolutionary variational inequality and an ordinary differential equation of the first order is obtained. An explicit Euler scheme is used for the time discretization. A spatial discretization of the problems is made using spaces of the integrated fundamental solutions. The boundary element method is applied to construct the spaces. As a result, it is necessary to solve a square programming problem with restrictions in the form of equalities and inequalities on each temporary layer. The linear transformation of variables allowing simplification of a type of restrictions is offered. A modification of the conjugate gradient method considering specifics of restrictions is used for the numerical solution of the problems. Wear processes of wave surfaces with a thin non-uniform coating by finite rigid punches is investigated. The distribution of the wear function in the contact zone is determined and discussed.

Abstract

The numerical simulation is a promising tool for the study of material behavior under dynamic loading. The widespread numerical methods for the simulation of material response to dynamic loading are finite element and finite difference methods. The mathematical formalisms of these methods make possible numerical solution of the complex problems of solid mechanics, including dynamic one. At the same time application of these methods to dynamic problems meets difficulties at the simulation of multiple fractures accompanied by mass mixing and mass transfer. An effective tool for the numerical solution of the problems related to complex fracture of solids is the discrete element method (DEM). Despite the intensive use of DEM for the numerical study of deformation and fracture of brittle materials and media, mathematical formalism of this method is limited by the quasi-static models of material behavior. Therefore the fields of application of the DEM are limited by the strain rate interval <10 s-1. Therefore the aim of this work is the development of the mathematical formalism of the DEM to simulate the behavior of brittle solids under dynamic impact. We developed the model of the dynamic behavior of brittle solids based on the kinetic theory of strength, which was first proposed by Zhurkov and developed in the works of Morozov and Petrov. The model takes into account strain rate sensitivity of inelastic and strength parameters and allows modeling of the dynamic behavior of brittle solids at <103 s-1. The developed model is the modification of the classic “static” Nikolaevsky’s plasticity model and the failure model with a two-parameter criterion of Drucker and Prager. A feature of the proposed dynamic model is the use of the “stress” form of the yield and failure criteria instead of the integral form that is traditionally used in the kinetic theory of strength. Dynamic behavior of material is conventionally described through the dependences of model parameters on strain rate. Note that the strain rate is a technical parameter of loading, which characterizes average (smoothed) deformation of a sample. At the same time there is a physical parameter, which characterizes the process of degradation/fracture of material at the considered spatial scale under applied loading. This is the stress relaxation time. Typically, the relaxation time is a period during which nucleation and growth of the main crack in the sample take place. Therefore the relaxation time as physical parameter of degradation/fracture is preferable to be used as a key parameter of proposed dynamic behavior model. The main issue that arises when applying this model to solving applied problems is the determination of the dependences of model parameters (strength and cohesion) on the time of generation of discontinuities of the corresponding scale. Ideally, a series of laboratory dynamic tests is required to determine these dependencies for considered material. We propose an alternative way to solve this problem. In particular, we propose to estimate the required dependencies with use of the available databases of experimental data about the strain rate dependences of the mechanical characteristics of various brittle materials. The approach to dynamic models developing is relevant for solving applied problems associated with natural and man-caused dynamic impacts on structures of artificial building materials, including concretes, elements of ceramic structures and rock materials. In particular, the implementation of the proposed approach within the framework of the particle-based method makes it possible to solve the problems of the estimating of fracture time of structures and brittle materials with complex internal structure as a function of impact amplitude and strain rate, taking into account the structural features of the materials in question. At the same time the solution of the inverse problem provides to obtain estimation of the characteristic size of the elements of material internal structure which determine the fracture process.

Abstract

We studied the discontinuous stationary solutions for the rheological mesoscopic modified model of Pokrovskii-Vinogradov, which describes the dynamics of liquid polymers. The Rankine-Hugoniot conditions for the model were introduced. We justified the existence of stationary solutions with flat surface of strong discontinuity for the case of constant velocity direction across the discontinuity and for the case with change of direction (rotating discontinuity). The stability of such solutions was also considered. For linearized equations of the model we posed the eigenvalue problem for partial solutions with unlimited grow in time. It was shown that such solutions exists in anisotropic case wich means the stationary solutions with flat discontinuity are unstable within the given model.

Horizontal Visibility Graphs on Markov Approximation with Long Memories

Abstract

Qi Bu, Juntao Wang, and Kwok Yip Szeto* Department of Physics, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong, HKSAR, China *Corresponding author: phszeto@ust.hk ---------------------------- Perforated embedding is a powerful tool searching for optimal Markov approximations of time series data. When a Markov model of order m is assumed, the knowledge of the past values of the time series earlier than m steps has no contribution to the decrease of the uncertainty in the future. A common method for a given conditioning set approximates the information entropy by Grassberger-Procaccia correlation sum, which searches for nearest neighbors with different resolutions, and then finds optimal perforated embedding sets by minimizing both the modeling and statistical errors. However, when time steps in the earlier history are considered, the number of possible conditionings increases exponentially with m. Besides, the complexity of nearest neighbor searching also increases when the time series is embedded into higher dimensions. We propose an efficient alternative solution by using genetic algorithm to find the optimal conditioning sets without testing all candidates. Furthermore, we introduce the horizontal visibility graph algorithm to map the time series to a complex network, which is more efficient. This mapping between time series and complex networks prove to be very useful for searching the optimal conditioning sets. In our application of search for the optimal conditioning sets with genetic algorithm, the fitness criterion is similar to previous methods but we compute the mutual information between time steps using the degree distribution of nodes in horizontal visibility graphs. We illustrate this method of finding the optimal conditioning set in a Markov model of time series on several standard examples.

Abstract

In this work, a multi-model of a quadrator is developed in order to control this system. The kinematic model of each part of the quadrotor will be derived using the Euler angles, and also the dynamics model of the quadrotor will be calculated based on the first principles of a rigid body using the Newton-Euler formulation. Furthermore, the following assumptions are used :1) The structure is completely rigid and perfectly symmetric. 2) The center of mass is in the origin of the quadrotor fixed frame. 3) The thrusts are proportional to the square of the motors rotational speed. An state-space model (kinematics and dynamics) is developed by physical laws. But, this deduced model presents several no linearities that are produced by three factors: the orientation ( Pitch, Roll and Yaw ), the control action and the angular velocities. To be able to control the quadrator system in simple, linear and manageable way, it is necessary to linearize the system. Two method are possible: a classical linearization around several set-points and a multi-model linearization. In this case, a multi-model linearization is proposed due to the obtained control model will be used to compute a multi-model controller using fuzzy techniques. Fuzzy control techniques are suitable for linear parameter varying systems with no linearities, as our quadrator.

Abstract

Juntao Wang, Ka Ki Lau, and Kwok Yip Szeto* Department of Physics, Hong Kong University of Science and Technolgy Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong, HKSAR, China *Corresponding author: phszeto@ust.hk Abstract Evolving complex system such as the stock market provides a very challenging problem for physicists. By focusing on a particular feature such as the management of a portfolio of stocks, we use evolutionary computation to optimize the Sharpe ratio of the portfolio. Among numerous techniques in this approach, we use genetic algorithm to address the adaptive approach for the portfolio management in the asset management involving two stocks and cash. We analyse two stocks selected from Hang Seng Index constituents that satisfy two conditions: they are highly anti-correlated during some periods of time, and with more than 5000 historical data on closing prices. The strategy comprises three parts: conditions and action with selected fraction for investment. By quantization of the closing prices and trading volumes of the historical data of the two stocks and the encryption of the conditions of the strategy into a binary string, we form a population of investment strategies. The population of these strategies form a population of chromosomes, which evolve according to the Darwinian principle of the survival of the fittest. We use a particular form of genetic algorithm with mutation matrix to perform the search for a prediction rule that has sufficient high prediction accuracy as well as high probability of application. The optimal strategy for managing the portfolio is one that achieves the largest Sharpe ratio. By employing this dynamic set of strategies, we show that in testing set, the Sharpe ratio of the investment can be increased and outperform the index.

Abstract

Zhijie Feng, Wenshuo Guo, and Kwok Yip Szeto* \\ Department of Physics, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong, HKSAR, China *Corresponding author: phszeto@ust.hk \\ We investigate the importance of time scale in winning an election with a well-defined deadline $t_D >0$ for counting the vote. We use a symmetric Watts-Strogatz network to model the voting population and consider the election game between two parties, red and blue, modeled by Monte-Carlo simulation with the Ising model. We further study the effect of spies implanted in the enemy’s camp based on the physics of damage spreading in Ising model. We introduce two counterbalancing local disturbances at two different times during the voter interaction. We consider the first agent chosen from the red party. This agent first performs simple random walk on the social network of voters, searching for the optimal site in terms of maximum damage to the blue party. After a preset time $0\le t_1 \le t_D$ of search, the red agent will choose a site (voter) who is originally loyal to the blue party, and influence this voter so that he will change his mind forever to vote for the red party. Similarly, a second agent will do the similar damage to the red party at $0\le t_1 \le t_2 \le t_D$ . This second agent chooses a site(voter) who is originally loyal to the red party and influence this voter so that he will change his mind forever to vote for the blue party. The two ratios of time scale, $\tau_1 = {t_1 \over t_D}$ and $\tau_2 = {t_2\over t_D}$, are important parameters in terms of the probability of winning the election for the two parties. We perform numerical analysis of this model for different sets of parameters for the social network, different deadline values, as well as different critical values (>0.5) defined for a win of the election. A party will win if the percentage of vote surpass the critical value at the deadline. We investigate the relationship between probability of winning and the independent variables $\tau_1, \tau_2$. We also investigate the optimal strategy of the later agent for maximized winning probability using genetic algorithm in the search for the optimal sites based on the topological features of the chosen node during the random walk search by the agents.

Numerical model and procedure for spectral analysis of light-emitting diode with patterned electrode

Yohei Nishidate1

1University of Aizu, Computer Science and Engineering, Japan

Abstract

Electroluminescence (EL) spectra from light-emitting diode (LED) with vertical stack of two sets of quantum wells (QWs) for blue and green emission and mesh-like top electrode revealed equal peak intensities of blue and green emission lines and shallow trough between them. These spectral peculiarities were associated with the influence of mesh-like electrode. Spatially nonuniform potential distribution created by the patterned electrode along the QW-plane was assumed to result in spatially nonuniform compensation of quantum-confined Stark effect (QCSE) which manifests itself as spatially-dependent EL blue-shift. In this paper we verify the assumption of spatially nonuniform compensation of QCSE by performing analysis of the EL-spectrum of LED with blue-green emission by its decomposition. We applied spectrum decomposition procedure in two steps. For this purpose EL-spectrum is presented as a set of sampling points ($\lambda_i$, $g_i$), where $\lambda_i$ and $g_i$ are the wavelength and the intensity of i-th sampling point. Then the EL-spectrum is assumed to be a sum of N Gaussian functions. To find the coefficients for all Gaussian functions we need to minimize the total residual by solving a system of nonlinear equations for these coefficients. After first decomposition the Gaussian functions for blue and green emission lines were obtained with FWHM 23.5 and 40.6 nm, respectively. At the second step we expanded each of blue and green Gaussian functions independently into sets of Gaussian function with smaller FWHM. The refined spectra of blue and green emission lines can be interpreted as a manifestation of spatially-dependent compensation of QCSE resulted in position dependent blue shift of EL.


Magnetorheological bio-suspensions membranes: Influence of magnetic flux density on the electrical conductivity and relative dielectric permittivity

Abstract

Magnetorheological bio-suspensions (MRSBSs)-based membranes are fabricated using a microfibre cloth soaked with a mixture of honey, turmeric powder (TP) and carbonyl iron (CI) microparticles. Plane capacitors are manufactured by introducing the membranes between two parallel Copper plates. The electrical conductivity and the relative dielectric permittivity of the membranes are measured in a static magnetic field superimposed on an electric field with fixed frequency. The results show that the membranes can be used for fabrication of devices which require a controlled release of the bio-active components found in honey and TP, by fixing the value of magnetic field density.

Abstract

Rough surfaces play an essential role in many physical phenomena including wave scattering, friction, adhesion, electrical conductivity, capacitance and heat transport, and in applications ranging from thin films to sensors [1]. Light scatter, which is faster and less invasive than SPM, can also measure surface roughness via the inverse wave scattering method [2]. The study of the surface of samples of sheet metal with polymeric coatings of microscopy showed that it consists of grooves that collect in star-like condensations scattered over the entire surface of the sheet. When comparing images obtained by an optical microscope and the method of scanning probe microscopy, we observed scale invariance.Therefore, the distribution of defects on the surfaces of polymer coatings of a metal sheet is fractal in nature.To construct a fractal model of surface, a three-dimensional anisotropic model based on the Julia set. Obtained fractal dimension determined. The analysis of influence of parameters various fractal functions on a profile of rough surfaces are carried out. The method of determination of parameters of model is given. Values of these parameters for various samples of the coverings of metal rolling received under various conditions of their formation are received. The research of the scattering of electromagnetic waves from various surfaces of sheet metal rolling with polymeric coverings within the received fractal models is conducted. In the frame of the Kirchhoff method, the average coefficient of light scattering, scattering diagrams for the coating surface are numerically calculated for various values of surface roughness and falling angles. The results of the research made it possible to develop a convergence technique for such a metal roll allowing identifying a correspondence between the color and the texture of the sample surfaces.

Inexact matrix exponential preconditioner for implicitly restarted Arnoldi method in fluid dynamics stability problems for parallel heterogeneous architecture

Nikolay Evstigneev1

Abstract

We wish to solve the problem of linear stability analysis of stationary solutions for a fluid dynamics problem governed by Navier Stokes equations. Let $\mathtt{A}$ be a linear operator of discrete approximation of the Navier-Stokes equations linearised on some stationary solution. The discrete problem is of order $\mathcal{O}(10^6)-\mathcal{O}(10^7)$ so we use parallel computations to perform linear analysis. We aim at the heterogeneous computational architecture based on central (CPU) and graphical (GPU) processing units. There are many methods exist that recover the desired part of the spectrum, e.g. power method, inverse power method, Jacobi-Davidson methods, Krylov methods, methods based on Newton iterations. However, there are no implementations of these methods aimed at parallel heterogeneous architecture that take into account parallel computational difficulties. In the papaer we use the implicitly restarted Arnoldi method (IRAM) to solve the eigenvalue problem of recovering the most dangerous eigenvalues, i.e. eigenvalues closest to the imaginary axis. The IRAM has poor convergence without specific transformation of the matrix spectrum, e.g. exact matrix exponential $\exp(\mathtt{A})$, shift-invert $(\mathtt{A}-\sigma \mathtt{E})^{-1}$, Cayley transformation $(\mathtt{A}-\sigma_1 \mathtt{E})^{-1}(\mathtt{A}-\sigma_2 \mathtt{E})$, inverse Kronecker sum $2(\mathtt{A} \otimes \mathtt{E}+\mathtt{E} \otimes \mathtt{A})^{-1}$, where $\mathtt{E}$ is an identity matrix and $\sigma_j$ are real valued parameters. All these methods require either long computations (matrix exponential) or inverse of the modified matrix. This can be troublesome in fluid dynamics problems where matrix is not available explicitly (only matrix vector product is available). In addition the matrix is non-symmetric, ill-conditioned and can be full (for spectral approximation). This is a difficult problem to solve, especially for heterogeneous architecture with multiple GPUs. We propose the following inexact matrix exponential transformation that can perform shift-inverse using only matrix-vector product: $$\left( \left( \mathtt{E}+\mu \mathtt{A} \right)^m - \sigma \mathtt{E} \right) \mathbf{u}^{n+1}=\mathbf{u}^{n},$$ where $\mathbf{u}$ are Krylov space basis vectors used in the IRAM. Here $\mu$ is the compression parameter, $m \sim \mathcal{O}(1)$, $\sigma$ is the shift and $n$ is the number of the Krylov basis vector. The left part of the system is freely available as a time stepper part of the Navier Stokes solver code. The inverse is performed using Krylov methods that require only matrix-vector product. We prove convergence bounds for the GMRES method that is used to recover $\mathbf{u}^{n+1}$ in the Arnoldi process and show that this type of matrix transformation greatly accelerates GMRES convergence. We demonstrate application of the method in recovering eigenvalues close to the imaginary axis in some model problems on the following matrices from the Matrix Market: GT01R, rdb450 and S80PI_n1. We also demonstrate the application of the method for fluid dynamics on incompressible (Kolmogorov 3D flow, Rayleigh-Benard convection) and compressible (Kelvin-Helmholtz instability) flow problems. We demonstrate convergence, acceleration and efficiency on the multiple GPU cluster.


From Coulomb's law to magnetic fi eld of moving point charge and possible implications for gravity

Hrvoje Dodig1

1University of Split, Faculty of Maritime Studies, Department of naval electronic and information technology, Croatia

Abstract

In this paper, we derive the expression for magnetic fi eld of the point charge moving along the straight line directly from Coulomb's force law using the previously unknown mathematical equation that we have recently derived. This mathematical equation shows that the gradient of electrostatic potential function (Coulomb's law) can be expressed as the curl of vector function (vector potential). From this mathematical equation, it is straightforward to derive the expression for magnetic field of the moving point charge directly from Coulomb's law. Furthermore, Coulomb's law and the Newtonian gravity have the same mathematical form up to the constant, therefore the same derivation is carried out from Newton's gravity law. Therefore, we mathematically prove that moving mass produces gravitomagnetic fi eld, the mathematical form of which is exactly the same as the mathematical form of magnetic field of the moving point charge. Furthermore, we theorize that two masses moving with high velocities interact in the same way as predicted by Lorentz force law.


Theoretical Study of Light Emission in Europium-Chelate-Doped Polymer Optical Fibers

Abstract

Abstract: By means of a mathematical model, we carry out a theoretical study of light emission in poly (methyl methacrylate) polymer optical fibers (PMMA POFs) doped with a typical coordination complex, or chelate, of Eu3+. Our mathematical and compu-tational results are intended to provide an insight into the influence of some important design parameters in the field of europium-chelate-doped POF lasers and amplifiers. The main interest of this type of dopant, as compared to other ones proposed for active POFs, such as organic dyes, is that it serves to avoid photodegradation effects. In this respect, highly photostable and strongly luminescent europium-chelate-doped POFs have been proposed as new probes for optical sensing of temperature, and also as solar collectors. In addition, the use of light-emitting POFs enables the achievement of low-coherence, speckle-free light, which is advantageous for optical probes in Medicine, for the manufacture of fiber gyroscopes, etc. Moreover, the emission of Eu3+ in the red re-gion of the spectrum coincides with one of the attenuation windows of typical POFs, thus enabling the design of optical amplifiers for these fibers. One of the reasons why europium ions alone are not employed as dopant is that europi-um is not directly soluble in PMMA. Besides, the absorption cross section of these ions would be too low for the manufacture of compact devices. Both problems are solved if each ion is attached to a chelate, which contains a europium ion and various absorbing ligands, as is the case of the analysed dopant. The set of relevant energy levels and en-ergy transitions of all these chelates are depicted in Fig. 1. We have modelled the system by means of four rate equations that describe the tem-poral and spatial evolution of the generated power, of the pump power and of the num-ber of molecules per unit volume in the excited state corresponding to the europium ion and to the set of ligands. One of the parameters analysed has been the optimum fiber length and its dependence on the pump power. For this purpose, the rate equations have been solved in stationary state by using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method. Addi-tionally, we have derived a simplified analytical expression that serves to model the evo-lution of the generated power as it propagates while the pump power is still non-negligible. The attenuation of the generated light in the green region is also taken into account, and its effect is studied as well. We also show why and under what conditions the optimum length for maximum generated power is about 10 times shorter when the concentration is 10 times higher, i.e. the factor by which the concentration is multiplied is similar to the factor by which the optimum length is divided.


Modeling an experiment to measure the speed of gravity: optimization of the quadrupole mass

Carlos Frajuca1

1IFSP, Mechanics, Brazil

Abstract

An experiment to measure the speed of gravity is being planned. For this purpose, a numerical method was developed for the optimization of a composite quadrupole mass at very high-speed rotation. The calculation aims to optimize a quadrupole mass which must generate a periodic gravitational signal in a very high frequency (3200 Hz) with the maximum amplitude, taking into account geometric features and mechanical properties of the component materials. Using the brazilian gravitational wave detector as the signal receiving device, an estimate was obtained for the distance between the emiter and the detector is 100 m. A simplified modeling of the emitter-detector indicates that the gravitational signal amplitude decreases proportional to r^(-5), where r is the emitter-detector distance.

Abstract

A new theory of thin multilayer anisotropic elastic shells is proposed, based on the application of the asymptotic analysis over small geometric parameter to the general 3-dimensional equations of the elasticity theory for curvilinear coordinates. In deriving the equations of the shell theory no assumptions are made concerning to the distribution of displacements, deformations, or displacements trough thickness. Recurrent consequences of local problems of the elasticity theory for shells are formulated and an analytical solutions are obtained. The averaged equations of the asymptotic theory of shells that are of the same type as the classical equations of the Kirchhoff-Love theory of shells are derived. It is shown that the asymptotic theory makes it possible to obtain in explicit form the distributions of all 6 components of the stress tensor over the thickness of the shell. An example of the calculation of a cylindrical shell under axisymmetric bending is considered. The case of monoclinic shell layers, which have no more than 13 independent elastic constants, is considered. An algorithm is proposed for obtaining explicit analytical equations for calculating the distribution of components of the total stress tensor over the cylindrical shell. The effect of the geometric dimensions of the shell on the character of the distribution of displacements and stresses in the shell is analyzed.

Abstract

The paper proposes a new model of mathematical knowledge representation based on the hierarchical neural network structure of the links between various elements of knowledge. The concept of the level of knowledge and the minimum element of knowledge- «the quantum of knowledge» are introduced. On the base of the developed model, the structuring of mathematical knowledge corresponding to the basic mathematical training of engineers was carried out. The information and educational environment Nomotex was developed for mathematical training of engineers based on the proposed model of knowledge representation and a unique collection of 3D animation of all basic mathematical knowledge, as well as examples of the use of knowledge in engineering. The information and educational environment allows implementing individual educational trajectories in which the educational process is automatically formed from the neural network structure of knowledge according to the specified output competences of the engineer. A specialized software for visualizing educational trajectories was developed. Informational and educational environment allows to realize the multilevel and continuity of mathematical preparation, taking into account the nature of the activity of engineers in their mathematical preparation, taking into account the specifics of engineering training in mathematical courses. The information and educational environment allows implementing distance education, creating online courses, video lectures and automated testing. The introduction of the information and educational environment provides an increase in the attractiveness of the learning process through the extensive use of 3D visualization and animation, as well as computer game elements in the process of mathematical learning. Information and educational environment NOMOTEX, provides the possibility of implementing a systematic approach in the study of mathematical knowledge. The results of the experimental implementation of the information and educational environment in the educational process of engineers at the Bauman MSTU are presented.

Abstract

Economic science and practice has a huge number of developments in financial and mathematical models and analytical indicators that have been tested to improve the efficiency of financial and economic activity, optimize and improve the quality of management of financial processes and economic relations between companies, both private and public. Meanwhile, the integration of these models and analytical indicators into the structure of management tools of public and private corporations, medium and small companies in developing countries is a separate scientific and practical problem due to fundamental limitations that are predetermined by economic, historical, geopolitical, regulatory and other factors. Based on the indicated situation, the authors based on the Russian experience conducted an analytical study in which the main fundamental limitations of the applicability of financial and mathematical models were identified and summarized, their root causes were identified, and a number of debatable aspects of financial management in companies using financial and mathematical models.


Reconsideration of Continual and Statistical Mechanics in Terms of Scalar Deformation Variables

Valeriy Ryabov1

1NRC Kurchatov Institute, , Russian Federation

Abstract

The theory of continuum and statistical mechanics in terms of molecular variables “coordinate-impulse-force” instead of tensor variables “stress-strain”is developed. The concept is based on the representation of classical mechanics in T6 manifold. Six true topological dimensions of the torus surface are represented by six scalars: three relative strains and three shear angles. The separation of spaces, which address the deformation and the coordinates of the particles greatly simplifies the whole computational basis of continuum and statistical mechanics. Instead of the stress-strain ratio, the new governing equations contain the dependence of the generalized tension forces acting on each atom (or small mass element) on the scalar deformation variables. The notions of surface and surface forces can be excluded from statistical and continuous mechanics within new concept. This concept gives rise to a new type of ensemble with a constant tension force NfE. A much simpler principle of virtual work provides a number of advantages over the widespread isostress ensemble NtE in molecular dynamics. In addition, the actual equality of the internal tension forces to the traction ones allows a fully atomistic interpretation of the boundary value problems. In the thermodynamic limit, instead of pressure and volume as state variables, this ensemble uses the tension forces measured in energy units and the stretch ratios. Thus, the changes might be also applied to the formulas in the textbooks. The governing equations of nonlinear elasticity theory for inhomogeneous medium are formulated. Unlike the standard theory, it is not necessary of the compatibility conditions or Saint-Venant principle for solving boundary value problems. The new method offers a completely different strategy in continual mechanic’s computations. The usual calculation algorithms assume the use of the finite element method for constitutive equations. In contrast, the discretization scheme in scalar deformation variables is analogous to the optimization procedure applied in molecular dynamics. This means that the continuum mechanics ceases to be an independent brunch of theoretical physics, becoming a part of many particle mechanics with an effective interaction depending on the deformation variables in the extended space. Several key examples illustrate the implementation of the new theory in calculations of statics and dynamics and thermodynamics of deformed solids. Referencies 1. V.A.

Abstract

We investigate the influence of additive and multiplicative noises on the order-disorder phase transition process. The two-component spatially extended chemical reaction model – brusselator, in which at first multiplicative noise was added, and then additive noise was added, is used for study. Single-site two-dimensional nonlinear self-consistent Fokker-Planck equation in the mean field approximation in Stratonovich interpretation for the system under study was derived in two variants. In the result of numerical simulation in the definite parameter regions, which are different, the intermittency of ordered and disordered phases was discovered. We observed increasing of the ordered and disordered phases frequency intermittency at the receding from the bifurcation point and at the increasing of the noise intensity. We found, that existence duration of ordered phase increases with noise intensity increasing. In our research we showed how disorder originates and grows inside ordered phase under the influence of the additive or multiplicative noise.

Abstract

Direct laboratory exercises and observations are a fundamental part of science courses, but the concepts such as distance learning, and open universities, are now becoming more widely used for teaching and learning. However, due to the nature of the subject domain, the use in science and engineering are relatively behind when using online distance learning. We propose a solution developing several advanced virtual laboratories of electromagnetism which is a replica the real lab fully software-based, using a mobile game development with Unity 3D. Unity is a game development ecosystem: a powerful rendering engine fully integrated with a complete set of intuitive tools and rapid workflows to create interactive 3D and 2D content that is considered a tool of artistic expression which joint the art and technology. We argue for this solution since it offers advantages over real labs, which will be elaborated further in this paper.

Ultrametric diffusion as a model of microblogging network evolution

1National Research University Higher School of Economics, School of Business Informatics, Russian Federation

Abstract

The present paper is a continuation of our studies (see Studies in Computational Intelligence, vol. 689, 2018, pp. 390-400). As a result, it has been recognized that the probability density function for a Twitter time series is a q-exponential (Tsallis) distribution. This phenomenon has not received the theoretical explanation. Therefore, the purpose of the presented study is to construct and analyze a model that explains this phenomenon. Our model is based on the statistical theory of hierarchical networks. Based on the generalized Fokker-Planck equation, we established that the evolution of the microblogging network represents anomalous diffusion over hierarchical levels. In the model, hierarchically subordinate users of the social network form an ultrametric space. At the lower levels of the Cayley tree are the followers of the followers of the social network. In the process of diffusion, a stationary q-exponential distribution is established. Thus, the ultrametric diffusion model is the adequate model of the microblogging networks (such as, for example, Twitter).

Hydrodynamics singularities associated with a static or moving three-phase contact line

Valeriy Kiryushin1

1Moscow Technological University (MIREA), Institute of Cybernetics, Russian Federation

Abstract

Stationary flows of viscous fluids with a static or moving contact line are considered. Contact line separates three phases: vapor, liquid and solid. No-slip condition on the solid-fluid surface and ordinary conditions with account constant surface tension for the fluid-vapor interface are supposed to be fulfilled. The flows presented in the report are induced by some physical mechanism concentrated in the very small region near the contact line. Such contact line is the origin of the flow and treated as a hydrodynamics singularity. As an example the flow in a two- dimensional viscous fluid drop which rests or steadily moves along a horizontal solid surface is considered. Motions of this type can be observed in experiments if the solid-fluid surface wettability is non-uniform. A sequence of solutions for the velocity field and the free surface shape with the successively increasing applicability region near the static or moving contact lines is obtained. At first stage the solution of the problem is found in the case when the distortion of the free surface of the drop during motion can be neglected. The problem is then reformulated using functions of a complex variable and expanded variables are introduced. In the new variables a more accurate solution of the same problem is found, with a much more narrow inapplicability region near the contact lines. Asymptotic behavior of the flow near the contact lines is discussed.

Abstract

Hydraulic synchronization methods are widely used in various technical systems to ensure simultaneous movement of two or more actuators, which are structurally coupled to gas-fluid power cylinders and perform translational or rotational movements. As a rule, the actuators operate in the presence of external force impacts being different in magnitude and direction. These impacts affect dynamic characteristics of the entire synchronization system. Under these conditions, the task of maintaining the simultaneous movement of several actuators can be solved using working fluid flow stabilizers. However, there are tasks in the practice of designing synchronization systems, and external impacts are given in a rather narrow range in these tasks. In this case, the design of the synchronization system can be simplified – throttle washers are used instead of flow stabilizers; the washers are installed in a fluid feed line of each power cylinder. At the same time, there is the need for an optimal choice of flow rate parameters of the throttle washers in order to minimize a mismatch time of the movement of the actuators. An efficient numerical method of a multidimensional optimization based on a Hooke-Jeeves method was proposed, a binary coded genetic algorithm was considered, and a software package was developed. They allow calculating the optimum values of the flow rate coefficients and the geometric characteristics of throttle washers during the computer modeling of a nonstationary process of the synchronization of two power cylinders, the actuators of which are affected by force impacts being constant in modulus and different in sign. A compute core of the software product comprises a dynamic mathematical model of the operation of said mechanical system based on Lagrange’s equations of the second kind and fundamental balance equations of continuum mechanics, for the solution of which the third-order numerical finite-difference Runge-Kutta method was used. The software product was developed using the Qt cross-platform framework. The product offers a user-friendly interface for performing computer-aided design calculations. The performed series of computational experiments demonstrated a quantitative agreement of the obtained results of the solution of the task with the use of these optimization methods.

Abstract

The objective of this research was to determine the absorbed dose to the organs that were likely to receive significant doses from the capsule 131I for treatment of hyperthyroid and thyroid cancer patient. This was achieved by using computer codes that were executed with Monte Carlo N-particle-4b which gives the possibility of studying parameters that cannot be measured experimentally. A key factor in retaining the confidence of the referring clinician, the patient and the public, is to maintain and up-to-date knowledge of the radiation risks associated with their procedures. A method for quantifying the risk to the patient is described in terms of estimating the effective dose. Administered radioactivity presents a risk to the patient who should be balanced against the benefit from obtaining a diagnosis or carrying out the treatment. According to standard therapy routine twenty four administrative activities between 185 MBq and 6105 MBq were studied. Organs of interest were bladder, bone surface, colon, liver, gonads, skin and stomach. Significant risks were observed only in doses received by the stomach wall. The calculated risk for 15 minutes is lowest for 185 MBq (0.340 x10-3), and the highest one is for 6105 MBq (11.237 x10-3).


Boundary Value Problem for a Higher Order Equation with Changing Time Direction

Valery Fedorov1

1North-Eastern Federal University, Reseach Mathematical Institute, Russian Federation

Abstract

Boundary value problems for some higher order nonclassical equations of mathematical physics were studied, for example, in [1-3]. In this work, using the stationary Galerkin method, the solvability of boundary value problem in cylindrical domain for a higher order equation with changing time direction in weighted Sobolev space is proved, under certain conditions for coefficients and the right hand of equation. In terms of the eigenvalues of the spectral problem for a quasi-elliptic equation the error estimate for approximate solutions of this problem is obtained. The eigenfunctions of this spectral problem are a special basis for approximate solutions. The statement of the problem under consideration was proposed in [2], where I.E. Egorov, using the nonstationary Galerkin method and the regularization method, investigated the boundary value problem for this equation in case when the leading coefficient has another sign than in our case, on the bases of cylinder. In [3] the error estimate of the nonstationary Galerkin method is obtained, for the problem in [2].

Modeling the process of formation of fractal structures in thin films

Anastasiya Fedosimova1

1Institute of Physics and Technology, Satbayev University, , Kazakhstan

Abstract

This paper presents the results of modeling the features of the formation of fractal structures in thin films of tin dioxide SnO2 obtained by the sol-gel method. The process of hydrolysis of tin tetrachloride SnCl4 leads to the formation of tin acid Sn(OH)4, which has a gel-like structure. Unstable tin acid decomposes to form water and tin dioxide. The formation of cluster structures is considered depending on the "competition" of these two processes. The nonlinear evolution of sol-gel stochastic processes leads to a fractal structure of the film clusters. The peculiarities of the formation of fractal clusters and the morphology of a thin film are estimated depending on the control (technological) parameters.

Abstract

Free Boundary Method (FBM, [1]) which we develop as extension to the Navier-Stokes equations requires high mesh resolution for problems with complex geometry. In case of Cartesian grids it leads to unnecessarily huge increasing of computational costs and memory consumption whereas high resolution is required only near solid surfaces and for high-gradient regions. So one needs to exploit some kind of adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) approach. The most suitable and robust approach for our methods is AMR based on octree graph representation of 3-dimensional Cartesian grids with recursive multi-level cell subdividing. One of our main goals is to implement highly-scalable framework for solving CFD problems on HPC clusters with massively-parallel accelerators (such GPU and Xeon Phi) so we deal with domain decomposition and dynamic load balancing challenges. Initially domain is discretized with coarse Cartesian grid called base grid and then necessary refinements are performed so each base grid cell becomes root of corresponding octree for its subcells. Z-like space filling curve (SFC) over all octrees is used for domain decomposition on distributed-memory systems with the only restriction: any octree (and corresponding base grid cell) is entirely located in one process i.e. splitting of octree over processes is forbidden. It considerably decreases complexity of mesh and octrees inter-process management with small limitation on dynamic load balancing: minimal portion for exchange between processes is a base grid cell with its whole octree. Parallel implementation for the matrix-free LU-SGS method [2] used in iterative solver for discrete equations of implicit scheme leads to graph coloring problem. If grid is colored such any two neighboring (by face) cells are of different colors than all cells of the same color could be processed simultaniously in parallel keeping strong correctness of the LU-SGS method. In case of Cartesian grids only two colors with "chess"-like pattern are needed to implement highly efficient CFD solver with CUDA and MPI [3]. In case of 3-dimensional 2:1 balanced octree grids one needs allready four colors, correspond coloring algorithm presented in [4]. One its important property is simple local recoloring in case of mesh coarsening and refinement that permits to effectively solve problems with implicit time steps even in case of dynamically modified grids strictly conforming to LU-SGS method over whole distributed mesh. Applying this coloring scheme we achieve good scalability with thread- and process-level parallelism. Our approaches to AMR handling on octree grids are similiar to ones used in p4est [5] but this library lacks of thread-level parallelism (it exploits only MPI) and doesn't provide API for low-level data manipulation which is necessary for implementing such type of parallelism and graph coloring algorithms. CFD tests were performed to evaluate performance of solver, mesh manipulation procedures and overheads at CUDA- and MPI-levels. [1] Menshov, I. S. and Kornev, M. A.

The anisosphere model: a novel differential phase space representation for Foucault pendulums and 2D oscillators

René Verreault1

1Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Fundamental Sciences, Canada

Abstract

It is customary to describe the behaviour and stability of oscillators with the help of phase space representation. However, two-dimensional (2D) oscillators like the Foucault pendulum call for a 4D phase space that is not simple to visualize. Applying celestial body perturbation theory to the Foucault pendulum in his doctor dissertation, Nobel laureate Kamerlingh Onnes showed that the essential features of a Foucault pendulum are its inherent circular and linear anisotropies. A spherical differential 2D sub-space can be defined, where the group of the points of a spherical surface with respect to the operation rotation about a diametral axis is isomorphic with the group of sequential states of oscillation of a 2D pendulum with respect to the operation translation in time. Any Foucault pendulum is then characterized by two elliptical eigenstates which are represented by the poles of that rotation axis on the so-called anisosphere. Such poles play the role of attractor/repellor when “dichroic” damping is present. Moreover, they move drastically within a meridian plane when nonlinear restoring torque giving rise to Airy precession occurs. The concept of anisosphere constitutes a very powerful tool for analysing and optimizing actual Foucault pendulum implementations. That feature is illustrated by a numerical model.


Airy precession analysis of a Foucault pendulum using the anisosphere model and a rotating saddle deformation of the potential well

René Verreault1

1Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Fundamental Sciences, Canada

Abstract

Two-dimensional oscillator dynamics can be analysed and visualized efficiently with the help of the anisosphere, a graphical tool based on a differential phase space between the two dimensions. In fact, the principal variables of the anisosphere can represent the different perturbation terms used in analysing an anisotropic system by perturbation theory. The analysis power of the anisosphere can be efficiently exemplified by the Foucault pendulum, a two-dimensional oscillator with spheroidal gravitational potential well. Conventional perturbation theory shows that elliptical pendulum bob orbits undergo a steady precession of the major axis attributed to the difference between the spheroidal potential well and the paraboloidal potential well of a two-dimensional linear harmonic oscillator taken as the unperturbed system. A new perturbation calculation is presented where the starting unperturbed system is an anisotropic pendulum due to the nonlinear response of unequal major and minor axes of the elliptic orbit. Similarly, the precession rate obtained from the anisotropic pendulum with saddle deformation of its potential well can be visualized using the anisosphere analysis. The same precession behaviour is obtained from those two different approaches, thereby establishing the consistency of the anisosphere model.


Anisosphere analysis of the equivalence between a precessing Foucault pendulum and a torsion pendulum

René Verreault1

1Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Fundamental Sciences, Canada

Abstract

The residual anisotropy of a real Foucault pendulum is responsible for an oscillatory behaviour of the precession angle according to the original description given by Kamerlingh Onnes in his dissertation. Using the anisosphere model, it is shown that the oscillation in precession of a Foucault pendulum and the oscillation of many types of torsional balances are both driven by an extremely shallow gravitational potential wells. Such systems are therefore rendered sensitive to minute horizontal gravitational perturbations. In particular, the periodic apparent motion of the Moon and other celestial bodies can modify the anisotropy characteristic of the precession potential well. This may provide an explanation for the similar responses to Moon position of the paraconical pendulum of Allais during the 1950’s and of the torsion pendulum of Saxl and Allen in 1971.


Uncertainty quantification in the optimization routine for X-ray differential phase contrast imaging system based on Talbot effect

Katerina Smirnova1

1TPU, Physics and Technology, Russian Federation

Abstract

The uncertainty quantification technique – forward uncertainty propagation based on stratified sampling is applied to find the probability density functions of the noise standard deviations of the refraction angle $σ_{α,T}$ and $σ_{α,TL}$ in X-ray differential phase contrast imaging systems are derived. Here subscripts $T$ and $TL$ correspond to Talbot (one source of radiation with final focal spot is considered) and Talbot-Lau (absorbing grating forms an array of sources) type of interferometers and the expressions for the $σ_{α,T}$ and $σ_{α,TL}$ read as $$σ_{α,T}=\frac{γ_1 (k_2,τ_2)γ_2 (p_1,p_2,σ_s)}{4a\sqrt 2},$$ $$σ_{α,TL}=\frac{γ_1 (k_0,τ_0)γ_1 (k_2,τ_2)γ_3 (p_0,p_2)}{4a\sqrt{2I_0 }},$$ where \begin{align} & γ_1 (k,τ)=\frac{\sqrt{τ+k(1-τ)}}{k(1-τ) sinc(k)},\\ &γ_2 (p_1,p_2,σ_s )=\frac{p_2^2}{p_2-p_{11} }\frac {\exp(2 (π σ_s \frac{p_2-p_{11}}{p_2 p_{11}})^2)}{\sqrt{ϱ σ_s }}, p_{11}=p_1⁄η,\\ &γ_3 (p_0,p_2 )=p_0+p_2, \end{align} $p_i$ - the grating period, $k_i$ - the duty cycle, $τ_i$ - transmission factor, $η={1,2}$ - phase gating type ($π/2$ shift phase grating, $π$- shift phase grating) are theparameters of the grating $G_i, i=0,1,2,$ $a$–a pixel size of the detector, $ϱ$ – a dimension coefficient, $I_0$– the intensity of the radiation, which is proportional to the source size, $σ_s$ is the standard deviation of the source size. The parameters of geometrical and material characteristics of interferometers’ components are assumed to be Gaussian-like distributed over the corresponding range of values that results in the change of the design working flow to reach the high-performance grating-based interferometer [1]. In particular, the optimal values of geometrical parameters determined in [1, 2] are shifted by more than 10% as compared to the deterministic approach.

Abstract

This study examines the natural convection flow and the heat transfer of a water-based ferrofluid consisting $\ce{Fe_3O_4}$ nanoparticles in a semi-annulus cavity with a circular outer and a sinusoidal inner wall under the effect of a non-uniform magnetic field produced by multiple nodal magnetic sources. The fluid flow under consideration is two-dimensional, viscous, steady, laminar and incompressible. For the mathematical formulation of the problem both magnetization and electrical conductivity effects on ferrofluid are taken into account and thence the combined principles of magnetohydrodynamics and ferrohydrodnamics are considered. The governing equations are numerically solved using the dual reciprocity boundary element method in which the equations are transformed into integral equations on the boundary by using the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation and treating all other terms as nonhomegeneity through radial basis function approximation. Thus, the resulting discretized system is small in size compared to the ones obtained by domain discretization techniques, and hence the solution is obtained with a less computational cost. The numerical simulations are carried out to investigate the effect of Rayleigh, Hartmann and magnetic numbers, solid volume fraction of nanoparticles and amplitude of sine waves on the flow and heat transfer characteristics. It is observed that adding nanoparticles to the base fluid and increasing the amplitude of sine waves enhance the average Nusselt number, which indicates that the heat transfer inside the enclosure can be controlled by the shape of the computational domain under various combinations of physical parameters.

Abstract

The thermally excited vortical flow in a microsized liquid crystal (LC) volume has been investigated theoretically based on the nonlinear extension of the Ericksen-Leslie theory, with accounting the entropy balance equation. Analysis of the numerical results show that due to interaction between the gradients of the director field $\nabla{\hat{\bg n}}$ and temperature $\nabla T$, caused by the focused laser radiation, the thermally excited vortical fluid flow is maintained in the vicinity of the heat source. Calculations have shown that the features of the vortex flow is influenced not only by the power of the laser radiation, but also by the angle at which the radiation is directed.

The model of Cosserat beam with viscoelastic characteristics

Olga Ivanova1

1IT Decision CJSC, --, Russian Federation

Abstract

Free oscillations of a one-dimensional Cosserat continuum model are considered. The model is built on the base of Ilyuishin’s mechanical modeling approach. It consists of a beam supplied by rigid massive inclusions periodically placed along the longitudinal line of the beam. Those inclusions are connected with their nearest neighbors by belt drives. Bending-tension motion of this construction is considered in one plane. Model behavior is elastic, except for the moment action of inclusions on supporting beam elements which is viscoelastic (Kelvin-Voigt model is used). The linearization of the such model motion equations is made. The problem of free oscillations is considered for the linearized model. The fundamental difference between the system of equations for this model and for the one with fully elastic behavior is mentioned. The general solution of the problem of free oscillations is examined on the assumption with the special form of solution. The “antenna type” construction with known stress-strain properties is taken as an example. The computational solution of the problem of free oscillation is obtained for such construction. It is found that for each oscillation mode there exist exactly two forms of motion. The rate of decay became apparent to depend on viscosity value and oscillation mode. Some graphs are given to demonstrate the dependence.

Abstract

We propose an extension of the modified Vaisburd and Evdokimov model (MVE) [Russ. Phys. J. $\textbf{46}$, 1160 (2003)] to investigate the $L1$-, $L2$- and $L3$-subshells as well as total $L$-shell ionization cross-sections of atomic targets with atomic numbers 18 $\leq Z \leq $ 92 for incident energies upto 1 GeV. The present MVE model combines the Lorentz expression, Bethe term and Gryzinski's relativistic factor. We compare our results with the available experimental data as well as with the theoretical results of XMUIBED, XMCN, GKLV, MUIBED, XCVTS, RPWBA , PWBA, SDWBA and SCADW models. Our model describes satisfactorily most of the experimental data and produce more or less reasonable agreement with the other calculations apart from some differences at the high energy regions for some of the elements considered. This analysis reveals that this model can be used to calculate the inner-shell ionisation cross-sections for any element at any energy in the above range. This simple model may be used for applications in science, technologies and industries where first generation of reasonable cross-sections is needed.


Analysing of Acoustic Attenuation Spectra of Metaphosphate Ion Conductive Glasses

Peter Hockicko1

1University of Zilina, Department of Physics, Slovakia

Abstract

The paper deals with analysing of ultrasonic measurements realised at a constant frequency 13 MHz and the temperature above 300 K – acoustic attenuation of metaphosphate ion conductive glasses. Attenuation measurements have revealed that relaxation peaks from experimental studies of glasses are much broader than those from a Debye process. So, for description of loss peak and distribution of relaxation time, which varies with activation energy were used Double Power Law (DPL) and Gaussian functions. From both of approaches were estimated the value of activation energies of relaxation processes, which are comparable.

Abstract

The mathematical model of the piezo-optical transducer of a new design for high sensitive compact strain gauges was created. The strain gauge assembly is the transducer inserted into the adaptive element that is mounted on the controlled object. The transducer was theoretically and experimentally studied. The temperature dependences of the transducer parameters were studied by means of the model. Such dependences are common cause of accuracy limitations of strain gauges. The model performed the accurate numerical simulations of the light passage through transducer's optical elements via Mueller calculus and allowed to determine strain and stresses in the photoelastic element via finite element method. Based on the simulation results, the transducer's sensitivity should't depend on temperature. Nevertheless, the output signal of the transducer depends on temperature. It is explained by two factors: a) asymmetry of the geometry of the controlled object, b) inaccurate installation of optical elements simultaneously with change in the peak wavelength of the LED with temperature. So the installation tolerances of the optical elements are determined.

Waveriders on the plane shock waves with maximum lift-to-drag ratio

Abstract

The problem of the Waverider shape of maximum aerodynamic quality, constructed on a plane shock wave and having a symmetry plane, is set and solved for two isoperimetric conditions: the specific volume of the Waverider and the lift coefficient are given. The upper surface of the Waverider is directed along the incoming stream and does not disturb it. The bottom surface consists of straight lines that make up the same angle α with the undisturbed flow. The leading edge is a curve located in the plane of the shock wave generated by the lower surface and making an angle θ with the direction of the oncoming stream. In addition to the pressure in the interaction model of the flow with the surfaces of the Waverider, there is a local coefficient of friction, varying, as on a plate, independently along each chord from the front to the trailing edge. Extremal - the distribution of the chord length of the Waverider in the plan along the span is found using the method of local variations, adapted to the variational problem with two isoperimetric conditions. It is shown that in the case of a Cx and Cy normalized in a special way, the problem reduces to finding the minimum of the functional Cx, depending on four parameters: α, Mach number, C - is the tangent of the angle determining the sloping cut and m is the parameter characterizing the state of the boundary layer. Thus, within the framework of the model used, the extremal does not depend on the Reynolds number, but depends only on the state of the boundary layer. As an initial contour of the Waverider in the plan, a contour consisting of segments of straight lines was adopted, which, as an analysis of the necessary conditions of the extremum showed, is not an extremal under any combinations of the determining parameters. The shape of the optimal Waverider is determined in the absence and presence of restrictions on the length and scale of the Waverider, and also on the heat flux to the leading edge with various combinations of the determining parameters and the states of the boundary layer. It is established that the optimal Waverider can contain lateral washers, and the curved section of the leading edge both in the absence of a restriction on the heat flux, and in its presence contains an inflection point. It is shown that as the angle α is reduced, the aerodynamic quality of the optimal wavelets increases, and the shape changes insignificantly. The angle of the cutoff of the bottom cutoff of the Waverider has little effect on K. The increase in the Mach number while maintaining the state of the boundary layer leads to a significant change in the shape of the optimal Waverider.

Abstract

Langevin dynamics and molecular dynamics are actively used for studying of the ions transport in biological transmembrane channels. The above techniques yield to achieve the high level of simulation detail that can reveal atomistic and structural aspects of ion translocation. Nevertheless, these time-consuming approaches require powerful computational tools, especially in the case of large biological systems. Thus, the main purpose of our research is development of a predictive model, which can be used for evaluation of ion localization times in different ion channels based only on their structures. In our model we used a non-parametric method which estimates time values for a research subject. The predictions are based on the structural parameters of various ion channels forming feature space. Their contribution to the result depends on the weights, which are obtained by genetic algorithm. Ion localization times corresponding to the points of feature space are results of Langevin dynamics simulation with respect to hydrodynamic and dielectric friction. The transmembrane potential is simulated by the external uniform electric field, which is directed along the channel axis. Serotonin receptor 5-HT3 was selected as a subject of predictive modeling because it still remains poorly understood. The ion channel was divided into the key areas according to the structure of its transmembrane domain. Corresponding ion localization times were obtained at the external potential values ranging from 0 to 200 mV. Amino acid residues Ile267 and Ile268 were proved to have a strong influence on the time of ion translocation through the channel. Weight distribution analysis showed that the local electrostatic potential is the most significant factor in estimation of times values. However, in the case of 5-HT3 receptor the key area volume is another essential feature for model prediction.


A novel approach to modelling contact problems of the coated systems (topocomposites)

Nikolay Voronin1

Abstract

Topocomposites belong to a class of structured materials providing for specific functional characteristics including tribological ones, which differ essentially from those of compact materials of the same origin. The thickness of coatings and layers received by different types of surface treatments cover five orders of magnitude. To specify the surface layer of the material, differing from the base and with thickness from nanometres to several tens of micrometres, the term "thin coating" is used. Separation of films into thin and thick ones is conventional and relative. The term "thin coatings" is often applied to the surface layers and coatings received by vacuum ion- plasma methods, gas-phase methods, sol-gel technology, as well as others. The tribological properties and characteristics of friction with thin coatings are defined mainly by the coating thickness. If the thickness of a coating (modified surface layer) is comparable to the contact area, or is smaller and the ratio of mechanical characteristics of the materials of the layered system components (base and coating) so that external actions are received and localized, not only in the coating material but also in the base material, then such subsurface volume represents the surface layered composite material and is called a topocomposite. This material, as a subject of scientific and engineering interest of western scientific and technical literature, was called surface engineering. The terms of load, the form of bodies in contact, dimensions and mechanical characteristics of the subsurface volume, which include the base material besides the coating material, is decisive while referring to the class of topocomposites and in providing a certain operating capability and tribotechnical characteristics. A correctly formed composite subsurface layer provides to the friction surface and the article in total a technical efficiency and economic expediency which the elements of the layered system do not give separately. It is known that determination of the stress, the deformation state and deformation—strength parameters of contact areas for homogeneous solid bodies are possible as a result of solving the contact problems. This is an urgent problem for tribotechnical topocomposites and it is in the sphere of the mechanics of contact interaction of solid layered bodies. Some intensity of wear, appearance of microcracks, flaking and plastic deformation in the layered surface of the body is connected with the level, type and localization of stresses in the contact area. Although, at present, the theory of contact interaction has achieved significant advances, due to mathematical difficulties, some gaps between the theory and practical application of these solution for certain problems appears, particularly for the interaction of layered bodies, which is considered a nonclassical problem. The analysis of solutions of certain problems for the layered systems known in the literature shows that exact solutions are obtained with the application of numerical methods requiring use of the PC, software and, in some cases, significant expenditures of computer time. Known asymptotic dependencies are applicable separately for thick and thin layers. But they may have wider use if the specific character of the structure of layered systems is considered, as the physical side of solving the problem is no less important than the mathematical. In this work we propose a novel approach to modelling contact problems of the topocomposites. By this approach we have defined analytical dependencies for calculation of contact parameters, effective elastic compliance; effective yield point and bearing capacity of topocomposites are in terms of thickness of a coating, elastic and mechanical properties of base and coating materials. The local reduction of an effective yield point and bearing capacity is established for specific range of thickness of coatings. Existence of regions of abnormal structural strength for elastic - plastic layered medium is shown allow identifying unequivocally top layered elastic - plastic material (the hardened surface of a solid body), as a topocomposite. The method of study of topocomposites represented in this article enables the scientific design of friction units to choose the method of strengthening treatment, the coating and base material, and to specify the reasonable coating thickness and calculate the life cycle of the strengthened parts of friction units to high precision.

Abstract

Isolation of high-level nuclear waste (HLW) in deep geological repositories is nowadays considered to be the most feasible way of its disposal. Russia, along with other countries like Finland, Sweden, France, Germany, etc., plans the construction of its own repository. One of crucial aspects of repository functioning is the host rock stability, which is governed by the stress-strain state evolution. For one thing, the HLW is a strong source of heat, for another, the repository is subjected to the pressure of large overlying rock mass, thus its state is influenced by the combination of thermal and mechanical loads. 3D repository structure and host rock inhomogeneity, with dykes and cracks, adds to the complexity of the stress-strain state simulation. 3D code FENIA (Finite-Element Nonlinear Incremental Analysis) is being developed as a tool for realistic modeling of thermal and mechanical evolution of underground repositories. It was applied for modeling of thermal state of a prototypic repository, which implements the concept of placing the vitrified HLW in several dozen meters deep boreholes. For such repository configuration, an uneven temperature distribution with sharp 3D gradients is predicted. This will result in considerable shear stress along with compressive one, which can cause crack appearance and propagation. The estimates for effective (von Mises) stress in case of a prototypic repository with respect to realistic thermal and mechanical properties of HLW, engineered barrier system (EBS) and host rock are obtained with the FENIA code. It is shown that in the repository project the distance between the boreholes should be taken with respect to both thermal (maximum HLW, EBS and rock temperature) and mechanical (von Mises stress) acceptance criteria.

Pragya Singh1

1IIT(BHU) Varanasi, Department of Mathematical Sciences , India

Abstract

The objective of this article is concerned with a study of a static cruciform crack problem in an infinite orthotropic elastic medium opened by prescribed normal pressure distributions subjected to steady state temperature field. The problem is reduced to Fredholm singular integral equations of the first kind, which are solved using Chebyshev polynomials. Analytical expressions of the stress intensity factors and crack energies are found and the numerical computations for the orthotropic elastic material Boron-Epoxy composite for different particular cases are depicted through figures. The striking feature of the article is the graphical presentation of a possibility of crack arrest and variations of crack energies with the variations of the arms of the cruciform crack.

Abstract

Phosphate activated glutaminase (GA, E.C. 3.5.1.2) plays a key role in glutamine/glutamate homeostasis in mammalian brain, catalyzing the hydrolytic deamidation of glutamine to glutamate and ammonium ions. GA is mainly localized in mitochondria, where it has the catalytically active form on the inner mitochondrial membrane (IMM) and the other soluble form, which is supposed to be dormant. At present time, the exact localization of the membrane glutaminase active site remains a controversial and an unresolved issue. In our study, we used a multi-compartment kinetic approach to simulate metabolism of glutamate and glutamine in the astrocytic cytosol and mitochondria. A created system includes four compartments: the mitochondrial matrix, the cytosol of the astrocyte, the space of the synaptic cleft around the astrocyte, and the cytosol of the neuron. Metabolic network in these compartments is carried out using key enzymes and carriers. Due to the fact that the exact location of the mitochondrial membrane GA is the subject of a huge discussion, two system configurations have been proposed. In one type of the scheme, glutaminase is located on the inner mitochondrial membrane and its active site faces the matrix. In another configuration, GA is also located on the inner membrane, but its active center faces the intermembrane space. The influx of glutamate into the system was constant, and concentrations of ATP and NH4+ were fixed. We used physiologically important ratio between the concentrations of glutamine inside the matrix of mitochondria [Glnmit] and glutamine in the cytosol [Glncyt] as a marker for precise functioning of the system. Since this ratio directly depends on the mitochondrial glutamine transporter (MGC) flow parameters, key observation was to investigate the dependence of the [Glnmit]/[Glncyt] ratio on the maximal velocity of MGC at different initial concentrations of mitochondrial glutamate. Another important task was to observe the similar dependence at different inhibition constants of the soluble GA, the exact value of which is unknown. The simulation results confirmed the experimental c-side localization hypothesis, in which the glutaminase active site faces the outer surface of the IMM. Moreover, in the case of such localization of the enzyme, a 3-fold decrease in ammonium production was predicted.


Development and simulation of microfluidic comparator as an internal element of a pressure sensor with microfluidic Wheatstone bridge

Abstract

In this work we present the results of analytical modeling and 3D computer simulation of microfluidic comparator, which based on capillary effect. Microfluidic comparator is internal element of the component base of the microfluidic pressure sensor, which we considered earlier (doi:10.1088/1742-6596/738/1/012071). The advantage of such a device is in operating principle. Microfluidic comparator does not have mechanical control valves and other elements that create additional measurement errors. Also, mechanical elements impose limitations on operational requirements. The proposed system has high-quality operability in the extended range of ambient temperatures; this is stable with increased vibrations and hit. We investigated the behavior of this device for various working fluids and gases. Analytical calculations are supported by numerical simulation results. Finally, microfluidic differential pressure sensor with microfluidic comparator has improved characteristics in comparison with analogues, and this opens up new opportunities for using it in the markets of medical and aerospace instrument.

Abstract

Integrable nonlinear differential equations are an important class of nonlinear wave equations that admit exact soliton solutions. All these equations have an amazing property which is that their soliton waves collide elastically. One of such equations is the (1+1)-dimensional Fokas-Lenells equation. In this paper, we have constructed an integrable (2 + 1)-dimensional Fokas-Lenells equation. The integrability of this equation is ensured by the existence of a Lax representation for it. We obtained its bilinear form by the Hirota method. Using the Hirota method, exact one-soliton and two-soliton solutions of the (2 + 1)-dimensional Fokas-Lenells equation were found.

1Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, Russian Federation

Abstract

An idealized deterministic multifractal-based model is suggested for describing the structure of complex hierarchical materials. The corresponding small-angle scattering form factor is calculated from a system containing a macroscopic number of randomly oriented multifractals with uncorrelated positions. The scattering curve is characterized by the presence of the three main structural regions: Guinier, fractal, and Porod. We show how to extract various structural information of the fractal from the scattering data, such as: overall and fractal dimensions, and the size of the basic objects composing the fractal. The obtained results give additional insights into the structure of multifractal systems at nano- and micro-scales.

Abstract

C.V. Atanasiu1, L.E. Zakharov2, K. Lackner3, M. Hoelzl3 1 Institute of Atomic Physics, Bucharest, Romania, 2 LiWFusion, Princeton, US, 3 Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching, Germany The key basis for tokamak plasma disruption modeling is to understand how currents flow to the plasma facing surfaces during plasma disruption events. In ITER, the occurrence of a limited number of major disruptions wills definitely damage the chamber with no possibility to restore the device. In the current exchange plasma-wall-plasma, according to the Helmholtz decomposition theorem, our surface current density in the conducting shell – the unknown of our problem - being a vector field twice continuously differentiable in 3D, has been splited into two components: an irrotational (curl-free) vector field and a solenoidal (divergence-free) vector field. Developing a week formulation form and minimizing the correspondent energy functionals in a Finite Element approach, we have obtained the space and time distribution of the surface currents. We verified successfully our numerical simulation with an analytical solution with pure homogeneous Neumann B.C. and satisfying the necessary existence condition. By considering the iron core presence in JET tokamak, we have split the magnetization currents — the unknowns in some integral equations — into two components, the first producing a magnetic field in the iron region only and the second producing a magnetic field in the vacuum, obtaining thus a better evaluation of the influence of the iron core on the plasma equilibrium. To reduce the influence of the singularities appearing during the surface currents determination in multiply connected domains (L-shaped domains) we have used a conformal transformation method.


The Piecewise Linear Approximation and Collocation Method for a Hypersingular Integral Equation

Abstract

We propose the numerical method to solve the following linear hypersingular integral equation for a function $g(y)$: \begin{equation*} (I\, g) (x) = \int_{\Sigma}g(y)\dfrac{\partial^2 F(x-y)}{\partial n_x\partial n_y}\,d\sigma_y = f(x),\, x\in \Sigma,\, F(x-y) = \frac{1}{|x-y|}, \end{equation*} where $\Sigma$ is a simple smooth surface that can be closed or opened with the boundary $\partial \Sigma$ (in this case the boundary is the closed piecewise smooth curve), $\vec n(x)$ is the unit outward normal vector to the surface $ \Sigma$ at the point $x$, $\partial/\partial n_x$ is the derivative along the vector $\vec n(x)$ and is calculated as a partial derivative of a function depending on $x$ while the variable $y$ is fixed. The integral is considered in the sense of Hadamard finite value. This integral equation arises if one solves the Neumann boundary value problem for the Laplace equation using the boundary integral equation method and representing the solution in the form of a double layer potential [1]. We construct the numerical scheme for the equation based on the piecewise linear approximation of the unknown function and the collocation method with vertices of the triangle cells as the collocation points. The problem is reduced to the system of linear equations which coefficients can be expressed in terms of the integrals over cells of the partition while the integrand can have a strong singularity. These integrals are calculated analytically and therefore we obtain the precise expressions for the coefficients of the system of linear equations. In case of the closed surface we prove the uniform convergence of the numerical solution to the accurate one on the grid as the triangulation size tends to zero. The testing of the method using the model examples shows its effectiveness both for finding the unknown function $g$ and its surface gradient. The latter is important from the point of view of applications to the solution of boundary value problems. // [1] I. K. Lifanov, L. N. Poltavskii, and G. M.

Abstract

Under interaction of plasma flows there are electromagnetic waves are generated in the plasma, which can distribute in different directions, interact with the plasma, change in amplitude and in motion direction. To study the appearing electromagnetic waves in the plasma is impossible due to the nonlinear character of such interaction when modeling. In many problems to solve this problem one place a vacuum domain next to the plasma area, where the electromagnetic waves, generated by the plasma, are studied. Waves in vacuum follow to the linear Maxwell equations and, therefore, it is easy to determine their frequencies and amplitudes using the Fourier analysis. To study this matter, it is sufficient to consider the problem in the 2D case. The problem is in the following: at any time $t$, knowing the values of the functions $E_x$, $E_y$, $E_z$, $B_x$, $B_y$ and $B_z$ (electric and magnetic intensities), to investigate what kind of waves are present in the considering domain, i.e. for each wave number $k_x$ and $k_y$ to find the wave amplitude. As all waves are linearly independent, the only waves having the same $|k_x|$ and $|k_y|$ are considered. The 2D Fourier analysis for the functions $E_z$, $B_x$ and $B_y$ gives amplitudes of all harmonics. However, this expansion mixes four waves which have equal $k_x$ and $k_y$ but have the different motion direction. The aim of the current work is the development of the technique to determine directions and amplitudes of all electromagnetic waves which are present in the solving domain at a definite time. The proposed algorithm will be implemented when solving the 2D/3D problem of the laser impulse and plasma interaction.

Abstract

The exact analytical solution of the problem of axial shear of a cylindrical layer fixed on the inner surface is obtained. On the outer surface, either axial tangential stress or axial movement is specified. The model of hypoelasticity with objective stress rates of the corotation type is adopted: the Jaumann stress rate and the Green-McInnis-Naghdi stress rate. It is assumed that at any point of the layer only the axial displacement differs from zero, and it depends on the radius. Such a motion is isochoric. The kinematic characteristics of the motion are determined: the affinor, the distortion rate tensor, the strain-rate and rotation-rate tensor, the rotation tensor and the Green tensor. All components of the Cauchy stress tensor are found. It is shown that, for small deformations, the obtained formulas become known, and a numerical-graphical illustration of the solutions obtained is presented. The analytical solution of the problem is compared with the numerical solution obtained in the ANSYS software package for the hypoelastic material model using the Green-McInnis-Naghdi stress rate.

Abstract

Cytochrome c oxidase (CcO) is a terminal enzyme complex of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. It catalyzes oxygen reduction to water alongside with cytochrome c oxidation. These reactions are coupled with proton pumping through the membrane from the N-side to the P-side and therefore the membrane potential is generated. In the present work CcO activity was estimated via the computer algorithm based on stochastic approach where the catalytic cycle of enzyme is reported as a set of consecutive transitions between distinct states with the various numbers of metabolites. In the present study the proton channels activity was explored under different pH. The functioning of CcO was investigated with four different schemes, providing various requirements on proton pumping process initiation. In general the pumping protons could be uptaken not only via the D-channel, but also via the K-channel, and the possibility of the such pumping was implemented in the distinct schemes. The increase of uptaken via the K-channel protons flow was observed under pH raising. Furthermore the D- and the K-proton flows were equal under pH 8.5, and significant predominance of K-proton flow was observed under pH from 8.5 to 10. This fact shows that one can observe a change of channel modes under the alkalization of the enzyme environment: the D-channel activity decreases significantly in favor of the K-channel. K-proton flow increased under raising pH, then the peak under pH from 8.4 to 8.6 and further decrease were observed in the model scheme, assuming K-protons transmembrane transfer. The peak of the pumping efficiency was also obtained when pumping of K-protons occurs under the binuclear center full of protons. However the pumping efficiency monotonically increased when three or four protons were present in the binuclear center.


A combined application of boundary element method and Lobatto time stepping procedure in 3-D partially saturated poroelastic media

Abstract

Studying wave propagation in poroelastic bodies subjected to dynamic actions is important in many engineering applications. The results of such studies are used to create the methods of non-destructive evaluation, in soil structure analysis and earthquake seismology. Very often, an analytical solution to wave propagation problems is only possible in some special cases and for particular kinds of boundary conditions, thus the numerical approximation methods have to be used, such as boundary element method (BEM). The BEM is very suitable for wave propagation problems, since the problem is formulated only on the boundary. It also produces highly accurate solutions. In BEM-modeling of dynamic processes, three main approaches can be conventionally discerned: solving in time domain [1], solving in Laplace or Fourier transforms with the subsequent inversion of the transforms [2], and the dual reciprocity approach [3]. The numerical accuracy of the time-domain BEM with time stepping discretization is significantly influenced by a time step size. In particular the time-marching process becomes numerically unstable for using of the collocation method with the small time step size compared with an element size. To overcome this issue the some stabilization techniques have been developed [4, 5]. However, the time-domain approach cannot be applied to solve wave propagation problems for poroelastic media due to the absence of fundamental solutions in time. Methods working in the frequency domain also have limitations. It requires an efficient inverse transforms performed numerically and can be applied only to solve problems for which the correspondence principle is valid. In 1988, the convolution quadrature method (CQM) was proposed by Lubich [6, 7] to discretize the convolution integral. It has attracted significant interest as a technique (CQ-BEM) for applying BEM to time-dependent problems where classical time-step schemes suffer from instability and numerical damping [8-11]. Later in several studies it has been shown that the CQ-BEM based on implicit Runge–Kutta performs better accuracy than the one based on linear multistep method [12-16]. Also, Banjai and Sauter has reformulated CQ-BEM approach to solve decoupled problems in Laplace domain that works as transformation method [17]. This approach preserve properties of the original method concerning numerical stability and have the time step size as only one parameter to be adjusted respect to physical values of problem. The applicability of the reformulated CQ-BEM to poroelastic BE formulations has been shown by Schanz but only using linear multistep method [18]. The present study describes a modification of such a time-step method on the nodes of Runge-Kutta schemes exemplified with 2- and 3-stage Lobatto schemes. This method is close in its formulation to the CQM, but, in contrast from it, is based on the theorem of operational calculus concerning integrating in time-domain. The time-step BEM scheme constructed on its basis is applied to solve wave propagation problem for partially saturated media. The results of comparing the two schemes in analyzing a numerical example are presented. [1] W.J.

Abstract

It is well known that the mechanical response of brittle rocks is largely determined by the features of stress state, including the ratio between volumetric and deviator stresses. In particular, uniaxially compressed (unconfined) rock samples are often broken in a brittle manner by dynamically forming and propagating macrocracks. At the same time, even brittle rocks show strongly pronounced inelastic behavior under confined loading, starting with a certain value of the side pressure. In this case, fracture has a "quasi-viscous" character and is associated with the formation of a localized shear band, or (at still greater side pressures) by a volumetric cataclastic flow. Interpretation and generalization of the results of experimental studies of the behavior of confined brittle porous materials are key problems of both rock mechanics and fracture mechanics. Traditionally, the factors determining the inelastic behavior of such materials are subdivided into structural (dispersion and spatial distribution of pores), material (strength characteristics of pore wall material) and mechanical (characteristic values of external pressure). An experimental analysis of the individual contributions of these factors is rather difficult. Therefore, in the present work such an analysis was carried out using the numerical modeling of the axial compression of model porous samples confined at different side pressures. The considered range of side pressure values was limited to a “brittle fracture” region below the brittle-to-ductile transition threshold. The simulation results showed that at enough large confining pressures ensuring inelastic behavior of porous samples under axial compression, the maximum resistance force to compression is not related to the actual fracture of the sample (which is defined as fragmentation, i.e., separation into a set of contacting blocks). Transition from strain hardening to softening of the confined sample occurs well after the actual fracture and is associated with the formation of a localized shear band and its compaction in the process of relative shear displacement of the parts of the sample separated by this band. The results give grounds to assume that experimentally measured values of strength and ultimate strain of confined macroscopic porous samples (these characteristics are determined at the point of maximum resistance force) can be significantly overestimated in comparison with the true values. We studied the possibility of building a unified strain hardening curve describing the inelastic deformation of porous rock samples at various magnitudes of the side pressure. We showed that the use of plastic flow laws with a linear dependence on the magnitude of the first and second invariants of the stress tensor is strongly limited. In particular, the widely used Mises-Schleicher yield criterion can be correctly applied only for describing the initial stage of inelastic deformation of brittle porous materials (up to the stage of formation of internal cracks with a length of up to 10-15 characteristic distances between pores). To determine the boundary between these stages, it is necessary to carry out several experiments at different magnitudes of side pressure. A more complete description of the inelastic behavior of porous brittle materials up to the stage of fragmentation or the onset of strain softening should be performed using nonlinear (for example, elliptic) yield functions. Simulation results also indicate that the values of the specimen strength obtained in standard uniaxial compression, tensile and/or shear tests should be applied with caution as input parameters for a macroscopic description of porous brittle materials under confined conditions. In particular, the example of the Drucker-Prager failure criterion shows that its constants determined from standard engineering tests differ up to 2 times from those actually corresponding to the behavior of the material under mechanical confinement. In order to obtain adequate values of the constants, one should carry out special tests under conditions close to those in which the behavior of the porous material will be analyzed. The obtained results are important for deepening the understanding of the general laws of inelastic deformation and fracture of brittle porous solids (including rocks) under large compressive stresses.

Abstract

Thermal plume evolution is important task in the field of atmospheric flow research. Depending on the initial parameters of the plume and various meteorological parameters, thermal plume can rise from a few meters up to many kilometers above the ground. Thermal plumes may contain dangerous contaminants like ashes and species. However, even relatively small thermals may have regional impacts, as fine ash is transported far from the base ground by wind and buoyancy forces and thus, could present a major hazard for the environment. Despite a large amount of work and research the dynamics of thermal plumes are still poorly understood. Motivation of this work is development of computational tool for simulation of the dynamics of plume evolution at different initial and meteorological conditions. To this purpose, we developed LES-LBM solver accelerated by the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) on the CUDA computational platform, integrating LBM with Large Eddy Simulation (LES). Simplicity of coding is usually an appealing feature of the LBM. Conventional implementations of LBM suffer from high memory consumption and poor computational performance. The main advantage of the solvers based on GPU is their ability to perform significantly more floating point operations per unit time (FLOPS) than a Central Processing Unit (CPU) and a good scalability of explicit parallel algorithms. LES-LBM code was tested on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 ti and NVIDIA TESLA K80 GPUs. The performance of parallel LES-LBM code was compared with similar OpenMP based LES-LBM code. It is found that GPU can significantly accelerate the computational performance as compared to thread-parallel CPU code. Computed plume parameters, such as height, width and radial spreading of the umbrella cloud were compared with experimental studies and demonstrate the great potential of the LBM for simulation of plume dynamics.

Simulated Symmetry in a Mental Model of Kinematics of Special Relativity in Liquid Environment

Vadim Matveev1

1Midas marketing UAB, Vilnius, Research and Development Group, Lithuania

Abstract

A mental model that on the example of watercrafts traveling at usual speeds in water describes all known kinematic relativistic effects is constructed. The modeled objects conduct themselves in accordance with the formal laws of the special theory of relativity. Simulation of the symmetry in the proposed model makes it possible to simulate kinematic relativistic effects in the water medium in symmetrical relativistic form and to obtain Lorentz transforms. In our mental model individual watercrafts and groups of watercrafts located on the surface of a flat-bottomed water body with a depth of h, filled with slack water, serve as the objects of our conceptual observation. The watercrafts are equipped with hardware components that perform metrological operations. The hardware components have at their disposal sources of sonar signals. The signals travel between the watercrafts and the watercrafts and the bottom. The velocity of the sonar signals equals V and is unapproachable for the other watercraft, i.e., the velocity of the watercrafts, v, correspond to the inequality v < V. Each watercraft is equipped with a clock, during which a sonar signal that continuously travels along a plumb line (relative to this watercraft) between the watercraft and the bottom performs the function of the pendulum. Each sonar signal travel to the bottom and back requires a time of Δt(1) = 2h/Vz , where Vz – the speed of submersion and surfacing of the signal. The sonar clock “mechanism” controls not only the clock’s hands, but also all the watercraft hardware components, thereby ensuring the proportionality of their working speed to the clock’s working speed. As the watercrafts move at a velocity of v, the Vz submersion and surfacing speed of a signal traveling between a watercraft and the bottom along the hypotenuses of right-angled triangles is equal to V/γ, where γ is Lorentz factor. Time on the moving watercrafts, which we named simulated time t', flows more slowly than time t on watercrafts at rest by γ times. The procedure for maintaining distance between group’s watercrafts consists of the following. A sonar signal is dispatched from each watercraft to the neighboring watercraft, and upon reaching it, the signal goes back again. The watercraft’s hardware components, using their clocks, measure the signal’s time of movement to the neighboring watercraft and back, then approach or move away from the neighboring watercraft as necessary in order to maintain this time and the immutability of the sonar “distance”. It is easy to show that the lateral dimensions of the group are retained in this instance; however, the longitudinal dimensions (in the direction of movement) of the watercraft group in motion are contracted by γ times. In order to derive the symmetry of the processes, we simulated relativistic time synchronizing clocks in such a manner that the speeds of movement of a sonar signal in water flow from point, O, to point, x, and back to the point, O, became identical. Thanks to the artificial clock synchronization on the group of moving watercrafts the results of the measurements made by the hardware components on the watercrafts of the groups in motion and at rest become symmetrical. The same thing is true of the distances.

Abstract

The paper proposes a physico-mathematical model of a weakly compressible fluid and a two-scale model of the spatial flow of a weakly compressible fluid that displaces the gas medium in a porous composite structure. The model is based on an asymptotic analysis of the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. Algorithms for the numerical solution of local problems of the spatial flow of liquid and gas on the periodicity cells of composite structures and the algorithm for calculating the permeability tensor are developed. A numerical algorithm for solving the global liquid flow problem that displaces gas from a porous composite structure is developed. Examples of numerical modeling of local spatial flows of liquid and gas on the periodicity cell of typical composite structures are given, and also results of numerical modeling of the macroscopic flow of a liquid binder displacing the gas medium in a typical porous composite structure are obtained.

Abstract

Health-related activities often produce waste that can adversely affect their health. Most of this waste is no more hazardous than municipal solid waste. However, the rest pose significant health risks, being infected (15-25% of all waste), radioactive or toxic (less than 1%). A well-proven method of organic materials thermal utilization is pyrolysis, which can be successfully applied to the processing of medical waste. In this paper, the problems of numerical modeling of pyrolysis of medical waste using ANSYS Fluent software package are investigated. Modeling solid particles pyrolysis process with tools of computational fluid dynamics associated with a number of difficulties, such as: complexity of physico-chemical reactions occurring inside reactor, the need to consider the staged decomposition process, the presence of several phases in the system, the presence of moving parts in the reactor (the screw), the presence of dense porous medium in the reactor. Simulation of the reactor was carried out in a complex manner with a heating combustion chamber, that significantly complicated the problem. The paper offers a number of original solutions to overcome the above difficulties without significantly reducing the reliability of the obtained results and with acceptable time costs for calculation. The proposed approach can be used in the preliminary development of technical solutions for the construction of pyrolysis reactors for various solid waste.

Scaling Bayesian information accumulation in distributed data processing systems by choosing the optimal information space

Peter Golubtsov1

1Lomonosov Moscow State University, Faculty of Physics, Russian Federation

Abstract

In large-scale research, data is usually collected on many sites, have a huge volume, and new data is constantly generated. Since it is often impossible to collect all the relevant data on a single computer, much attention is paid to the algorithms that provide sequential or parallel accumulation of information and do not need to store all the original data. As an example of information accumulation, a Bayesian update for the linear experiment is analyzed. The corresponding $information$ $spaces$ are defined and the relations between them are studied. It is shown that processing can be unified and simplified by introducing a special $canonical$ $form$ of information representation and transforming all the data and the original prior information into this form. Thanks to the rich $algebraic$ $properties$ of the canonical information space, the sequential Bayesian procedure allows various parallelization options that are ideally suited for distributed data processing platforms, such as Hadoop MapReduce. This opens up the possibility of a flexible and efficient scaling of information accumulation in distributed data processing systems.


On the Minimization of Failure Sequences

Nidhal Mahmud1

Abstract

State transition models are increasingly being used to describe systems exhibiting sequence-dependent failures. Such representations can be observed in influential modelling languages like the Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) in the aerospace industry and the Electronic and Software Technology Architecture Description Language (EAST-ADL) in the automotive domain. In safety analysis, a set of paths leading to a safety-relevant state can be encoded as a standard sum of product canonical form, and without any loss of the significance of the order in which failure events occur. Such expressions can then be reduced by symbolic calculus into minimal canonical forms out of which all minimal failure scenarios in the source model can be generated. The resulting failure sequences will be assessed for quantitative analysis. In this paper, we formally propose and discuss such minimization algorithm. This approach offers some advantages particularly when choosing to synthesize system failure expressions from the reduced expressions local to the system constituents.

Abstract

Problems of electroinvestigation are solved for determination of parameters of geophysical structures due to comparison of results of the taken measurements of particular type of physical fields with results of their model operation. If application of electromagnetic fields takes place, then mathematical problem definition consists in searching of coefficients of Maxwell's equations and is the inverse task. In this work are considered a problem of restitution of electromagnetic parameters of the nonuniform mediums, by results of intubation by a direct current. The modelled fields are described by the system of difkferentsialny Maxwell's equations. Tasks are considered in a 3-dimensional approximation. The purpose of work is the solution of a direct task, creation of a program complex for electroinvestigation problem solving and also development of a unique algorithm for the solution of the inverse task, but a basis of a program complex for the solution of a direct task. In work the original algorithm of the solution of the inverse problem of electroinvestigation is constructed by a direct current. For the solution of a direct task the finite element method was used. On the basis of the solution of a direct task the algorithm of searching of electrophysical properties of the nonuniform mediums is developed. For the solution of this task the heuristic algorithm allowing to reduce first of all time of searching of the decision was used. When testing of the developed algorithm it was noted that accuracy of results also is acceptable.

1Bauman, Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, Russian Federation

Abstract

The results of the development of the theory of constructing effective constitutive relations for laminated composites with finite deformations are presented. The theory is based on the application of the method of asymptotic averaging for periodic structures and the use of universal models of constitutive relations for composite layers, proposed by Yu.I. Dimitrienko. Universal models allow us to formulate the constitutive relations simultaneously for all the main conjugated stress – strain tensors pairs. The method of asymptotic averaging makes it possible to obtain a relationship between the effective constitutive relations of the composite and its constituent layers. Cases of incompressible layers and layers with compressibility are considered. A numerical algorithm for constructing effective deformation diagrams of layered composites and calculating the material constants in the effective constitutive relations of an anisotropic composite is proposed. Numerical examples of method implementation and numerical algorithms are given.

1Novosibirsk State University, Mechanics and Mathematics, Russian Federation

Abstract

Using the original numerical method, the characteristics of the van der Waals gas flow between the shock wave and the surface of the cone in the axisymmetric case are calculated. The application of the Lopatinsky condition allows us to establish the type of shock wave: absolutely stable, unstable or neutrally stable. The phase state of the substance is also determined liquid, gaseous, or it is in a transitional two-phase state. For this purpose, the van der Waals isotherms are constructed using the Maxwell's rule of equal areas.

Abstract

Wavelet analysis is becoming more popular in geophysics. It is used for numerous researches, including tropical convection, the El Nino-Southern Oscillation, atmospheric cold fronts, temperature variations, the dispersion of ocean waves, and coherent structures in turbulent flows, number of sunspots etc. In this paper we research how informative is the application of wavelet analysis to the analysis of geomagnetic field variations at the mid-latitude observatory "Mikhnevo" of Institute of Geosphere Dynamics of Russian Academy of Science. We review continuous wavelet transform by focusing attention on such aspects as choice of mother wavelet, choice of scales, cone of influence, visualization of results, reconstruction of time series from wavelet transform and its application to estimate the Holder exponents and singularity spectra. In our work we use Morlet wavelet with frequency parameter of 6. In so doing, the reconstruction of the time series from the wavelet transform has a mean square error of 3.4%. The application of wavelet analysis made it possible to distinguish pronounced periodicities of the geomagnetic field with periods of 27, 13.5, 9, 6 days. In solar quiet-day variations is dominated by the 24- 12-, 8-, and 6-hour period components. An analysis of the modulus of the wavelet transform coefficients qualitatively indicates a scaling (close to the monofractal) character of the variations of the geomagnetic field in the diurnal range. Moreover, the intensity of periodic variations of geomagnetic variation isn’t constant in time. The application of the method of wavelet transform modulus maxima confirmed the monofractal character of the diurnal variation for any solar activity. In contrast to the 1-day variation, the 27-day variation and its harmonics show a higher degree of multifractality during a maximum of solar activity in comparison with the minimum of solar activity.

Abstract

Mirror symmetry breaking (MSB) is of crucial significance in the proposal of scenarios in abiotic chemistry. MSB is commonly studied by classical methods using differential ordinary equations but Stoichiometric Network Analysis (SNA), which uses matrix systems, emerges as an alternative to the study of very complex reaction networks. This, because SNA reduces the number of variables and the complexity of the solutions but retaining all the information of the chemical system. We study the application of SNA to MSB, specifically for the production of amino acids by the Strecker reaction. Results on the dynamics for the generation of MSB in six autocatalytic systems are discussed, including limited enantioselectivity network models, cross inhibition and two factors for MSB (stochastic fluctuactions and electron-nucleus electroweak interactions).

Andrey Dmitriev1

Abstract

By 2018, there are more than 70 million people suffering from various forms of one of the most common neurological diseases – epilepsy. In fact epipelsy is a central nervous system (neurological) disorder , manifesting itself in anomalous brain activity. Nowadays, most of the patients do not have the ability to foresee the onset of an attack in advance, which is due to complex symptoms that are difficult to predict. One of the best way to analyze such kind of behaviour is electroencephalography (EEG). This research paper considers the problem of EEG epileptic seizures prediction from the point of the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems. According to the study, signals of cerebral cortex neural networks corresponds to multifractal nature which gives an opportunity to analyze changes between states in phase space during the abnormal electrical activity. Therefore, monitoring the preictal stage and early indication of an attack may help patients to avoid problems related to sudden seizures. This research will provide valuable information regarding the mechanism of epilepsy onset and introduce the forecasting model utilizing machine learning algorithm which is based on recurrence quantification analysis.

Abstract

Usually, the accuracy is the main criterion in comparing of numerical methods of integration. However, often the qualitative properties of the trajectory is more important than the accuracy. For example, this is the numerical study of a planetary systems motion on large time intervals. In this case that conservative methods show their effectiveness. In this paper we propose the results of a comparison of conservative and nonconservative first-order methods in a numerical study for a well-studied two body problem. It is shown that the nonconservative method leads to exponential departure. The symplectic method of integration describes a chaotic motion close to regular. The results of numerical integration are illustrated graphically.

Abstract

Direct and inverse problems are distinguished in the analysis of electromagnetic radiation interaction with thin film structures. The direct problem is a calculation of the characteristics of reflected electromagnetic field given the known parameters of the structure. The inverse problem is the determination of the parameters of the structure from the characteristics of reflected electromagnetic field. In the present work we analyze the inverse problem of determining the parameters of multilayer metal-dielectric structures using prism-coupling technique. For a relatively long time prism waveguide mode excitation in the geometry of frustrated total internal reflection has been used for measuring refractive index and thickness of thin dielectric films (from 1 to 10 mkm thick). Ordinary algorithms employed for the measurements results processing in the experiments with multilayer samples commonly face serious problems. They do not account for the presence of finite angular divergence of the probe laser beam and they fail to work with non-uniform distribution of the electric characteristics over the thickness for semitransparent metal layers. Many models for the light reflection from multilayer media are not applicable for anisotropic films investigation. Experimental results processing method is proposed for these measurements. It permits to solve all the above mentioned problems simultaneously. The computer algorithm based on gradual variation of the theoretical model parameters and the comparison of the refractive index dependence on the incidence angle, obtained from this model, with the experimental one lies in the foundation of this method. The suggested data processing algorithm may find applications, for example, in the development of integrated optical circuits with anisotropic light-guiding layers and semitransparent metal claddings. It suits for the analysis of any layered systems, when the layers are several microns in thickness and the number of them reaches four and more.

Abstract

An algorithm for the numerical solution of the conjugate problem of external aerodynamics of high-speed aircraft and thermomechanics of heat-shielding structures from thermally decomposing polymer composite materials is proposed. The algorithm is step-by-step and at each time step includes the steps of solving the Navier-Stokes equations with chemical reactions, calculating the heat fluxes to the structure, calculating the internal heat transfer in the material of the structure, calculating the structural ablation, calculating the temperature field in the structure, calculating the stress-strain state of the composite structure materials taking into account phase transformations and temperature degradation of the materials characteristics. In the calculations, the temporary effects of elastic characteristics changing and shrinkage caused by the processes of thermal destruction of the composite are also taken into account. The results of simulation for a model aircraft design illustrating the application of the proposed algorithm are presented.

Abstract

Creation of the Google Books Ngram corpus opened up new opportunities for studying language evolution. This corpus consists of a large amount of digitized books written in 8 languages and contains information on frequencies of words, word combinations and syntactic dependencies of the last 500 years. In this paper, we present data on changes in the key characteristics of syntactic relations in English and Russian and propose a model which allows us to explain the observed changes. The clustering coefficient for the networks of syntactic relations of both languages is quite large. It is 0.70-0.77 for English (in 1800-2008) and 0.42-0.44 for Russian (in 1925-2008).The assortativity coefficient is negative in both cases, and varies from -0.27 to -0.24 for English and from -0.129 to -0.124 for Russian. It should be noted that these parameters are stable enough. The obtained values of the clustering and assortativity coefficients doesn’t let us use most of the common models of complex networks for describing dynamics of the network of syntactic relations. We proposed a new model of network growth and compared its predictions with empirical data on the networks of syntactic relations of English and Russian. Theory of prototypes provided the basis for construction of the model. The backbone of the theory is existence of a prototype, that is, an abstract image embodying a multitude of similar forms of the same object or pattern, the most representative example of a concept that posesses its typical properties. When a new word appears, it inherits a number of semes of its prototype. In accordance with this statement, the distribution of the new word will be similar to the distribution of the word-prototype. Formalizing these considerations mathematically, we get a model in which a new word inherits some of the relations of the word-prototype, and also receives at random a number of new relations. We used Google Books Ngram data (1800-2008) and performed modelling of network growth. Then, we compared the characteristics of the obtained model networks with the characteristics of the network of syntactic relations of the English and Russian languages. It was shown that selection of two parameters of the model allows us to obtain a very good correspondence between the changes in the clustering coefficient, the assortativity coefficient, and word distribution by the number of relations in the model network and in real networks of syntactic relations.

Abstract

Nowadays, the research structure of an institution or an enterprise is the core to do the investigation, development and innovation (ID+I). For this reason, if this structure fails, the institutional ID+I also fails. Based on this, we studied the research structure of Saint Matthew Foundation for the High Education by means of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA). This is the baseline to check the correspondence between the Foundation research aims and the Foundation research structure. From the structure found the concept lattice, formal concepts, subconcept-superconcept relations, partially ordered sets, supremum and infimum of the lattice and implications between attributes (Duquenne-Guigues base), were determined.


Mathematical model for the evaporation process of two interacting aerosol drops on the basis of theory of linear operators

Anis Khasanov1

1Plekhanov Russian University of Economics, Higher Mathematics, Russian Federation

Abstract

Abstract. The solution of the evaporation problem in diffusion mode in the case of two interacting large stationary aerosol drops is obtained by methods of linear operators. Concentration and temperature fields are presented as series of spherical functions. Search for coefficients in these expansions is reduced to search for infinite-dimensional vectors in a Banach space by means of linear operators. The main goal of this work was to investigate the influence of the factor of interacting of drops on their complete evaporation time. The formulas describing the influence of one drop on the complete evaporation time of another drop are obtained. Corresponding graphs and results of calculations of correction factors for different radii of drops and distances between them are presented. The presented approach is simpler and applicable for solving more problems concerning two interacting aerosol particles than the method using bipolar coordinate system.

Abstract

A theory of orientational transitions in plane-parallel chiral nematics liquid crystal (cholesteric – ChLC) cell with account for flexoelectricity, soft anchoring and negative dielectric anisotropy ($\varepsilon_a$) is developed. The main interest will be paid to the electric field inhomogeneity inside the cell. Besides the contribution arising with the voltage U applied to the bounding plates (~ $U^2$), we consider also two terms, which arise in inhomogeneous systems due to the flexoelectricity (first one ~ $\bar{e}U$, and second one ~ $\bar{e}^2U^0$, induced by Maxwell’s equations). Here $\bar{e}$ denotes the mean flexoelectric coefficient. We consider chiral nematics both for $\varepsilon_a > 0$ and for $\varepsilon_a < 0$ (the effect of flexoelectricity on the Fréedericksz transition in non-chiral nematics (NLCs) with $\varepsilon_a > 0$ has been studied in [1,2]). Our analysis showed that in the ChLC with $\varepsilon_a > 0$ the flexoelectric effect promotes the Fredericks transition. It is assumed commonly that there is no Fréedericksz transition in ChLC cells with geometry under consideration and the $\varepsilon_a < 0$ condition in stationary field (nanosecond electro-optics of NLCs with $\varepsilon_a < 0$ had been studied in [3]). Our analysis showed surprisingly that the Freedericksz transition can be driven by the stationary electric field in systems with considerable flexoelectric properties even in the case $\varepsilon_a < 0$. Based on a variation method [4] we investigated the ChLC cell orientational structure above the threshold. To determine type of the transition, continuous or discontinuous, we developed a two-parametrical Landau model with deviations from easy directions at the boundaries taken as the order parameter. It turned out that the Fréedericksz transition in the ChLC cell with the geometry considered can be either continuous or discontinuous depending on the material parameters of the ChLC and on the cell thickness in case εa > 0, while it will be continuous for ChLCs with $\varepsilon_a < 0$.

NUMERICAL MODELING OF MOIST VAPOUR VORTEX FORMATION NEAR THE CONDENSATION SURFACE IN THE VAPOUR CHANNEL OF SHORT LOW TEMPERATURE HEAT PIPES AT HIGH HEAT LOADS

Abstract

Abstract. The results of numerical simulation of vortex formation near the condensation surface in the Laval-liked vapour channel of short low temperature heat pipes (HP’s) at high heat loads are presented. For the first time it was found that the calculated value of moist compressible vapour vortex flow near the condensation surface inside the channel of short HP’s changes its rotational motion direction, depending on the thermal load magnitude on the HP’s evaporator. With low thermal loads, the toroidal vapour vortex ring rotational motion direction due to the Coanda effect and moving vapour jets sticking to the channel walls occurs from the periphery to the vapour channel center. While the thermal load increasing, the direction of the vapour vortex rotation changes to the opposite, from the center to the periphery. The thickness of the liquid condensate film located under the toroidal vortex ring also depends on the magnitude of the thermal load and the vortex rotation direction. Using the original capacitive sensors and special electronic equipment we measured the local thickness of the working fluid films inside the HP’s on its condensing surface. The measurement error does not exceed 1•10-3mm. Experimentally detected that the condensate film thickness lessens sharply with the increase of the heat load on the evaporator of the Laval-like low-temperature HP’s due to the change in the radial rotation direction of the vapour toroidal vortex ring on its condensation surface. The numerical calculations results of the condensate film thickness are close to the experimental values.

Abstract

Nowadays the prediction of ionospheric parameters is an important and acute problem in the field of ensuring the stable operation of radio communication and radio navigation facilities. The network of two-frequency GPS receivers data is used for monitoring the ionospheric condition. Based on these data, a number of laboratories are building global maps of total electron content (TEC). There are strong spatial and temporal correlations in the TEC maps. As a result, in order to successfully solve the problem of TEC prediction, it is advisable to perform preliminary processing of maps data with dimensionality reduction. In this paper, the problem of constructing a low-dimentional model of global distribution of the TEC is solved. In addition, the model of global distribution of the TEC can be useful for the ionosphere dynamics investigation. In this paper, it is proposed to use dense convolutional autoencoders as a base element of the model. This architecture allows us to speed up the neural network learning process and avoid the gradient-vanishing problem in error backpropagation algorithm. To train the network and test the results of the autoencoder, we used a set of two-hour maps from 1998 to 2013, presented by the JPL laboratory. Also, the optimum auto-encoder's latent space dimensionality was selected (in the range from 32 to 128). The application of this technique allowed us to obtain a smaller decompression error for all the maps from the training and test sets in comparison with the principal component analysis (the best result is 2.1 times smaller error) with the same dimensionality of the latent space of the maps.

Abstract

The impenetrability of the GTE cases after blade breakage is one of the most important requirements in modern aircraft engine building. The need for a reliable numerical method for estimate the impenetrability is particularly significant at the stage of designing a new product. The problem of estimating of the impenetrability, in a more general set, can be considered as a study of the supercritical behavior of the engine construction due to the destruction of the blades or other elements of the rotor. The existence of an adequate numerical methodology for this type of research allows one to set and solve the practically important inverse task of genesis – the determination of the sequence of events by the character of the case and rotor damages, which led to a supercritical stage of the machine operation, as well as other problems closely related to the ones under consideration. One of them is the analysis of rotor dynamics due to the resulting misbalance. Over the past several decades, the computational methods for the estimate of the impenetrability have undergone a significant evolution: from relatively simple semi-empirical techniques based on conservative energy criteria up to modern approaches to the analysis of the supercritical behavior of constructions using direct computer modeling. The problem of the most computational methods based on computer modeling is the insufficient level of the obtained results reliability. The article considers the basic settings of an effective and reliable numerical methodology for estimate of the impenetrability of GTE cases after blade breakage. The method is based on an experimental and computational procedure for solving the corresponding boundary value problem by the finite element method in combination with a system of full-scale and virtual verification experiments used for correction of the numerical scheme. The results of numerical analysis of the impenetrability performed using the presented technique are compared with the data of bench tests, and their good agreement is shown.

Abstract

The graphene bilayer (GBL) has many of the electronic, mechanical, thermal properties of the graphene monolayer counterpart, however with a notable difference: one can induce an electronic gap using a perpendicular electric field, which induces an inversion asymmetry between the two layers [1]. This asymmetry can be provided also by extrinsic doping [2] and, for high doping levels, the system becomes a degenerate semiconductor. In this case a gap opens either above of below the Fermi level, depending on the doping type. We investigate here GLB systems with extrinsic impurities in the presence of external electric field, using density functional theory (DFT) calculations implemented by SIESTA package. We show that the position of the gap can be further tuned by the external field, which may switch the behavior from degenerate to intrinsic semiconductor. Furthermore, we compare the formation energies for several group-III and group-V dopants and the binding energies between the two graphene layers.

Abstract

The constitutive equations for viscoelastic finite strains that generalize the differential elementary Maxwell model and use the Cauchy stress tensor, the strain rate tensor and the one-parameter family of objective Gordon – Showalter time derivatives are studied in the paper. Objective derivatives of Oldroyd, Cotter – Rivlin and Jaumann are the particular cases of this family for values of the parameter a equal to 1, -1, 0 respctively. The proposed family of constitutive equations is used in two problems for incompressible viscoelastic material: simple shear and cylinder torsion without elongation. The obtained analytical solutions of these problems showed that the used constitutive equations allow to describe the Poynting effect for any value of the parameter a. For the stepwise process of deformation of the cylinder, the result also qualitatively coincides with the available experimental data. The effect of the parameter a on the stress state in the mentioned above problems is also revealed.

Abstract

The problem of fitting time series by the sum of several exponentials with different decay parameters often arises analyzing the data of a physical experiment. In particular, such a problem arises determining the nuclear transverse relaxation times from the spin-echo decay NMR data. Mathematically, the problem can be formulated as a solution of the Fredholm integral equation of the first kind with an exponential kernel, or an equivalent system of linear equations. To solve this equation, various regularization methods are used, based on the L2 norm in most cases. We report the application of the L1-regularization for the problem, using the LASSO algorithm. A comparison was made between the results of L1- and L2-regularization on model time series, which were the sum of several exponential decays with noise. Also the L1- and L2-regularization were applied to analyze the $^1$H NMR experimental data of the spin-echo decays of n-hexane adsorbed in the porous media of aluminum free MFI-type zeolites known as silicalite-1. It was found out that the L1-regularization is effective method for determination of the transverse relaxation times from NMR data.

Abstract

The dynamic hysteretic effects observed in perovskite solar cells (PSCs) pose serious challenges for a correct determination of the solar cell efficiency, while the internal polarization mechanisms are still debated. In Ref. [1] we introduced the dynamic electrical model (DEM) which successfully explains several features of the dynamic J-V characteristics. It is based on a system of coupled differential equations, yielding a time dependent description of the current subject to voltage variation and initial poling. DEM consistently explains the appearance of normal and inverted hysteresis [2], the current overshoot in reverse J-V characteristics, as well as diminishing hysteresis at very high bias scan rates. Furthermore, based on DEM a set of guidelines were proposed in order to reliably perform J-V scans [3]. A new hysteresis index was defined, underlining the importance of correlated forward and reverse bias scans for a meaningful characterization of the dynamic hysteresis. Further on, we develop an analytical approach based on DEM, which describes the dynamic behavior of PSCs and may further guide current investigations into the polarization mechanisms.

Abstract

We model dynamics of a cabin equipped with a plane solar sail near a heavy artificial space object moving along a heliocentric orbit. We establish that the cabin motion toward the Sun by help of the solar light pressure is possible if the cabin is restricted by some constraint that performs the same function as the sailboat keel. Such constraint could be unilateral and realized by handrail or gantline. Also, the cabin could move along some rigid guides. Analizing the cabin motion equations, we suggest the optimal forms of constraints and the optimal control for the sail orientation to minimize the motion time

MHD natural convection flow in a porous corrugated cavity

Canan Bozkaya1

1Middle East Technical University, Department of Mathematics, Turkey

Abstract

A numerical investigation of free convection flow in a corrugated cavity filled with a fluid-saturated porous medium in the presence of uniform inclined magnetic field is performed. The steady, viscous, incompressible flow inside the porous medium is assumed to obey Darcy law. The fluid physical properties are constant except the density in the body force term which is treated according to Boussinesq approximation. The fluid and porous medium are in thermal equilibrium, and the radiation heat flux in $y$-direction is considered negligible compared to that in $x$-direction. The governing equations subject to appropriate boundary conditions are solved by using the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) which transforms the differential equations into equivalent boundary integral equations by treating the non-homogeneity through a radial basis function approximation. The stream function equation is solved by DRBEM with the fundamental solution of Laplace equation in the usual way, while the DRBEM with fundamental solution to the modified diffusion term by deriving the corresponding radial basis functions is employed for the solution of the energy equation. A parametric study illustrating the influence of the Hartmann number, the Rayleigh number, the magnetic inclination angle and the radiation parameter on the flow and heat transfer characteristics such as the streamlines, isotherms and the average Nusselt number is carried out. It is observed that the heat transfer rate is enhanced with an increase in the Rayleigh number, radiation and wavelength parameters whereas the Hartmann number and inclination angle of the magnetic field do not have significant effects on the temperature distribution.


On the Thomas - Fermi Model and the Emden - Fowler Equation

Sergey Pikulin1

1CC RAS, Applied Mathematical Physics, Russian Federation

Abstract

The quasiclassical model by Thomas and Fermi [1] of the charge distribution inside a heavy cooled atom leads to the nonlinear equation $\Delta \Phi=\Phi^{3/2}$ in $R^3$, which gets reduced in the radially symmetric case to the Emden --- Fowler equation being a singular ordinary differential equation (with respect to the screening coefficient $\Psi$, where $\Phi=:\Psi/r$): $$ \frac{d^2 \Psi}{dr^2} - {r}^{\nu}\, \Psi^{1+\sigma}(r)=0, \qquad r \in (0, +\infty), \qquad \Psi(0)=1, \qquad \Psi(+\infty)=0, $$ whith the parameters value~$\nu=-1/2$, $\sigma=1/2$. The main result of the talk is the following parametric representation of the solution of the problem for the Emden --- Fowler equation formulated above which holds when the value of $\nu$ is rational but not integer, $\nu=m/n$, $m,n \in \mathbf{N}$: $$ r(t) = C_1\, t^{1/\alpha} \, (1-t)^n \, {H}(t), \qquad y(t) = C_2\, t^{-\beta/\alpha} \, {H}^{-\beta}(t), \qquad t \in [0,1], $$ where $\beta,\alpha$ are calculated explicitly in terms of parameters $\nu, \sigma$, $C_1, C_2 = \mathrm{const}>0$, the function ${H}(t)$ is positive and analytic on the whole unit segment~$t \in [0,1]$ including the endpoints $t=0$ (corresponding to the limit as $r\to+\infty$, $\Psi \to 0$), and $t=1$ ($r=0$, $\Psi=1$). In the particular case of the Thomas --- Fermi problem, the method of calculation the solution based on this representation combines the high accuracy of the result with relatively small computational complexity and allows one to effectively find $\Psi(r)$ and its derivative~$\Psi'(r)$ at an arbitrary point of the ray with a prescribed accuracy. The obtained representation is based on an analytic property of solutions of the auxiliary Abel equation of the II kind obtained from the original Emden --- Fowler equation, namely, the partial passage of Painlev\'e test in the (fixed) node singular point of this auxiliary equation. The results of the talk are prepared for the publication [2].

Plasmonic waves in two-dimensional electron gas

Hugo Aya Baquero1

1Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, Facultad de Ingeniería, Colombia

Abstract

The electromagnetic waves applied on surfaces of materials with high density of free charges induce the generation of plasmonic waves both in volume and surface. Plasmonic waves in metals have been widely studied; also, recently plasmons have been investigated in intrinsic and doped semiconductor materials. In this work, plasmonic waves are simulated in a two-dimensional electron gas. Two-dimensional electron gas may be created at the interfaces between GaAs and AlxGa1􀀀xAs. The plasmons propagation speed depends on Fermi velocity and Fermi vector of the two-dimensional electron gas. The 2D plasmons dispersion relations deviate from light dispersion at all frequencies and does not have an asymptotic character as in three-dimensional electron gas; this allows operating plasmonic devices with speeds much lower than the speed of light. At low frequencies the plasmon wave vector is much smaller than the Fermi vector and the geometric capacitance dominates the quantum capacitance. The propagation of plasmons in channels without gate is studied.

A new decomposition law for multiplicative inverses operators in modulo prime powers

Luis Cortes-Vega1

1Antofagasta University, Mathematics Department, Chile

Abstract

In a previous work, the author formulates new laws of decomposition for the modular multiplicative inverse (MMI) over algebraic structures of the type $(Z/bZ)^*$. In this work, we extend one of those laws and present a beautiful expression for the computation of (MMI) on mod p^{m} via parallel computation, where p is a prime number and m is a natural number. In addition, we offer a mathematical explicit expression for the computation of (MMI) mod 2^m. The new results can become a fundamental tool on the arithmetic of finite rings, for image pattern recognition via algebraic topology, in fast RNS algorithms and digital applications as well as in physical applications, for instance, estimation of the Higgs mass.

Abstract

Cancer is a worldwide health issue responsible by 8.8 millions of deaths according to World Health Organization. The most common treatments are chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A new approach has been developed aiming to improve the efficiency of the most commons therapies, the hyperthermia. This technique consists in a magnetic nanoparticles injection submitted to an alternating magnetic field of low frequency. This procedure increases the tissue temperature up to $43^oC$ inducing cellular necrosis. This research aims to maximize the tumor tissue death and to minimize healthy tissue death, searching the optimized positions to inject the magnetic nanoparticles. The optimization is carried out using the Pennes model, responsible by modeling heat transfer in live tissue, in conjunction with a genetic algorithm which searches injection proper position. All the tissue parameters were obtained from the literature and the numeric method of finite differences was utilized. The space convergence was quadratic, $O(\Delta^2_x)$, and the time convergence linear, $O(\Delta_t)$. Spacial discretization used a centered difference while the temporal used a progressive difference.The simulation presented the algorithm convergence to the death of the whole tumor tissue and about $6\%$ of the health tissue.

Abstract

Emergencies of natural and anthropogenic origin are often accompanied by the thermal energy release in which a large-scale thermal is formed. Thermal’s high temperature, pressure and complex chemical composition lead to the formation of environmentally hazardous components. The evolution of the thermal is a complex process involving turbulence mixing, combustion of hydrocarbon fuels, and thermal radiation. Soot formation processes are also important, since the presence of soot particles in combustion products increases the emissivity of the flame. The impossibility of experimental measurements of the thermal’s evolution and its interaction with the environment due to the formation and propagation transience necessitates the use of mathematical modelling methods for the short-term prediction of harmful substances’ spread and environmental hazard assessment. A series of numerical studies of two-phase thermals was currently undertaken in [1-3]. The CFD model in [1] was based on the RANS approach, the structure of burning clouds for different Froude numbers was revealed. In [2-3] the large eddy simulation (LES) results were obtained with the use of ANSYS FLUENT and OpenFOAM. Soot formation and oxidation, as well as flame radiation, were evaluated in two buoyant turbulent diffusion flames fuelled by methane and heptane in [3]. For this, three soot models were compared including Moss-Brookes model which demonstrated best agreement with the measurement data. In this paper, the LES approach is applied for compressible turbulence with the dynamic subgrid Smagorinsky model. Dynamics of the three-dimensional isolated thermal is validated based on the results of [4]. Soot formation and oxidation are described by the Moss-Brookes model. The optical properties of the combustion products of hydrocarbon fuels are described by the weighted-sum-of-gray-gases (WSGGM). The numerical algorithm is based on the Lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) of the second order for space. The model reproduces the main features of the evolution of the buoyant thermal, namely rising and expansion, turbulent mixing and air entrainment, and soot particle distribution. Results demonstrate that the developed mathematical model coupled with the LBM is suited to simulate the three-dimensional dynamics of buoyant two-phase thermals, being able to correctly reproduce the non-equilibrium behavior of gas-particle mixtures with a reduced computational cost with respect to that expected from other computational methods and software.

Abstract

It is known that Bose-Einstein Condansate is well described by the non-linear Schrodinger equation known as the Gross Pitaevskii Equation (GPE) with the macroscopic wave function which evaluates with time and space. Many studies have been performed on nonlinear properties in Bose-Einstein Condansate. In this study, we present some numerical results of the Gross-Pitaevskii Equation with the external potential under noise. The phase portraits and Poincare sections of the system are simulated numerically both with and without noise.

Abstract

In this paper, we consider the unsteady problem of the propagation with finite velocity of one-dimensional thermoelastodiffusion perturbations in a homogeneous multicomponent layer. Physical-mechanical processes are described using a locally-equilibrium model of coupled thermoelastic diffusion (the prime denotes the derivative with respect to the dimensionless spatial variable $x$ and the point - to the dimensionless time $\tau$) that includes the equation of motion of the elastic medium, the heat transfer equation and $N$ the mass transfer equations: $${\ddot{u}=u''-b_{u} \vartheta '-\sum _{q=1}^{N}\alpha _{q} \eta '_{q} ,}$$ $$ {\dot{\vartheta }+\tau _{T} \ddot{\vartheta }=k\vartheta ''-b_{T} \left(\dot{u}'+\tau _{T} \ddot{u}'\right)-\sum _{q=1}^{N}\beta _{q} \left(\dot{\eta }_{q} +\tau _{T} \ddot{\eta }_{q} \right) ,}$$ $$ {\dot{\eta }_{q} +\tau _{\eta q} \ddot{\eta }_{q} =D_{q} \eta ''_{q} -\Lambda _{q} u'''-M_{q} \vartheta ''\quad \left(q=\overline{1,N}\right),}$$ At the boundaries of the layer ($x=0$ and $x=1$), surface mechanical, thermal and diffusion effects are specified: $${\left. u\right|_{x=0} =f_{11} \left(\tau \right),\quad \left. u\right|_{x=1} =f_{12} \left(\tau \right),\quad \left. \vartheta '\right|_{x=0} =f_{21} \left(\tau \right),\quad \left. \vartheta '\right|_{x=1} =f_{22} \left(\tau \right),}$$ $$ {\left. \left(\Lambda _{q} u''-D_{q} \eta '_{q} +M_{q} \vartheta '\right)\right|_{x=0} =f_{q+2,1} \left(\tau \right),\quad \left. \left(\Lambda _{q} u''-D_{q} \eta '_{q} +M_{q} \vartheta '\right)\right|_{x=1} =f_{q+2,2}.}$$ The initial conditions are assumed to be zero: $$\left. u\right|_{\tau =0} =\left. \dot{u}\right|_{\tau =0} =\left. \vartheta \right|_{\tau =0} =\left. \dot{\vartheta }\right|_{\tau =0} =\left. \eta _{q} \right|_{\tau =0} =\left. \dot{\eta }_{q} \right|_{\tau =0} \equiv 0.$$ Dimensionless quantities are used above (with the same print, the dimensional values are indicated by asterisk): $$ x=\frac{x_{1} }{L} ,\quad u=\frac{u_{1} }{L} ,\quad \tau =\frac{Ct}{L} ,\quad C^{2} =\frac{C_{1111} }{\rho } ,\quad \alpha _{q} =\frac{\alpha _{11}^{\left(q\right)} }{C_{1111} } ,\quad D_{q} =\frac{D_{11}^{\left(q\right)} }{CL} ,$$ $$\tau _{T} =\frac{Ct_{T} }{L} ,\quad \tau _{\eta q} =\frac{Ct_{\eta }^{\left(q\right)} }{L} ,\quad \Lambda _{q} =\frac{m^{\left(q\right)} n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} D_{11}^{\left(q\right)} \alpha _{11}^{\left(q\right)} }{\rho RT_{0} CL} ,\quad M_{q} =\frac{n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} D_{11}^{\left(q\right)} \ln \left[n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} \gamma ^{\left(q\right)} \right]}{CL} ,$$ $$\kappa =\frac{\kappa _{11} }{\rho c_{0} LC} ,\quad \beta _{q} =\frac{n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} R\ln \left[n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} \gamma ^{\left(q\right)} \right]}{m^{(q)} c_{0} } ,\quad \vartheta =\frac{\vartheta ^{*} }{T_{0} } ,\quad b_{u} =\frac{b_{11} T_{0} }{C_{1111} } ,\quad b_{T} =\frac{b_{11} }{\rho c_{0} };$$ $$f_{1l} \left(\tau \right)=\frac{f_{1l}^{*} \left(t\right)}{L} ,\quad f_{2l} \left(\tau \right)=\frac{Lf_{2l}^{*} \left(t\right)}{T_{0} } ,\quad f_{q+2,l} \left(\tau \right)=\frac{f_{q+2,l}^{*} \left(t\right)}{n_{0}^{\left(q\right)} C} ,\quad l=\overline{1,2}.$$ Here $t$ is time; $u_{1}$ is component of the displacement vector; $L$ is thickness of the layer; $q$ is the component number of the $N$-component medium; $\eta ^{\left(q\right)} =n^{\left(q\right)} -n_{0}^{\left(q\right)}$ is increment of concentration; $n_{0}^{\left(q\right)}$ and $n^{\left(q\right)}$ are initial and actual concentrations; $t_{T} $ is the time of thermal relaxation; $t_{\eta }^{\left(q\right)}$ is the time of diffusion relaxation; $C_{1111}$ is the elastic constant; $\rho$ is the medium density; $b_{11}$ is the temperature constant characterizing thermal deformations; $\alpha _{11}^{(q)}$ is the coefficient characterizing the volumetric change of the medium due to diffusion; $D_{11}^{(q)}$ is the coefficient of self-diffusion; $m^{(q)}$ is the molar mass; $R$ is the universal gas constant; $\vartheta ^{*} =T-T_{0}$ is temperature increment; $T_{0}$ and $T$ are initial and actual temperatures; $\kappa _{11}$ is the coefficient of thermal conductivity; $\gamma ^{\left(q\right)}$ is the activity coefficient; $c_{0}$ is the specific heat capacity at constant concentration and deformation. The solution is sought in the form of convolutions by time of Green's functions and boundary conditions. To find the Green's functions, we use the Laplace transformation in time domain and the expansion into Fourier series in spatial coordinate domain. As a result of the corresponding transformations, the transformants of the unknown functions are expressed as rational fractions with respect to the Laplace transformation parameter. This means that their originals are found using known theorems and tables of operational calculus. This approach allows us to minimize the using of numerical algorithms and analyze the obtained solution.

Rocking behaviour of freestanding objects (by Antonio Gesualdo, Antonino Iannuzzo, Michela Monaco)

Abstract

The safeguard of museum exhibits like vases and statues, laboratory equipments, storage tanks, or even tall buildings and other structural elements subjected to earthquake and in general to time-dependent forces has been in the last years a topic focus. The classical mechanical problem of the motions of rigid objects simply supported on a base plane, developed in the first year of sixties, thanks to the seminal paper by Housner on the inverted pendulum, can be now take advance due to the development of calculation tools. In some cases the quality of motion can be determined varying the material parameters involved. This is a strong tool to reduce vulnerability, especially when rocking motion should be avoided and sliding motion is welcome, as in the case of artistic heritage. This paper focuses the attention on this last problem, common to a large class of both non-structural and structural elements that can lose their functionality because of earthquake motions. The results of a numerical modelling of sliding and rocking motion in presence of both different excitations and mechanical parameters are presented and compared with experimental data performed by the authors. The results developed are in good agreement with the laboratory tests and this assures the reliability of both the analytical procedure and the determination of the parameters involved. A model for a safeguard proposal is provided.


Dynamic shear behaviour of truss towers for wind turbines (by Antonio Gesualdo, Mariateresa Guadagnuolo, Francesco Penta)

Antonio Gesualdo1

1University of Naples Federico II, Dept. of Structures for Engineering and Architecture, Italy

Abstract

The global interest in renewable energy sources has increased the attention to the manufacturing of wind turbine towers, since they are largely diffused in seismic areas too. Different types of towers have been produced in recent years. Among them, the truss structures assure a reduced mass and the modular characteristics necessary for easy transportation. Reduced costs of production, installation and maintenance are typical of these structures. Nonlinear dynamics is an efficient framework to analyze structures subjected to variable actions, i.e. to assess the seismic safety of wind turbine towers in case of earthquake actions. This study outlines a procedure to evaluate the post-elastic behavior of truss towers for wind turbines. Rigid-plastic behaviour is taken into account to develop approximate solutions for the problem of a tower modeled as a vertical cantilever beam and subjected to harmonic base motion. A comparison with the results of a finite element model is proposed.

Abstract

The paper considers plain nonstationary contact problems for perfectly rigid dies translating into an elastic half-space. As a general case, the boundary of the contact area is assumed to be moving one. The method of functionally invariant solutions is used as a tool of analytic solution and study of distribution of contact stresses. By making use this method, the formulations of the problems are reduced to Riemann-Hilbert problem. It is shown that the distribution of stresses near the boundaries of the region differs for four ranges of contact speed: superseismic, first transseismic, second transseismic and subseismic. It is also shown that in the case when the given stresses or displacements are arbitrary continuous functions, the problem reduces to the considered way with help of approximating the given functions by homogeneous polynomials. The authors found and studied the analytic solution of the problems of indentation with conical and parabolic dies.

Abstract

Numerical modeling of significantly nonlinear spatial processes results in need to analyze non-stationary three-dimensional vector fields which structure is a priori unknown. The high precision of calculations necessary for such researches leads to increase in the sizes of grids, used when modeling. From the practical point of view it means impossibility of the direct analysis of numerical results, as brings graphic (visual) data presentation to the forefront, In article an opportunity to use implicit surfaces for visualization of power lines of the vector field and to apply hierarchical splitting space for effective realization of the offered method which is further development of a method of a stream of spheres is discussed.

Abstract

In this paper we consider the unsteady vibration problem for the Euler-Bernoulli beam. For the mathematical formulation of problem we use the model of coupled elastic diffusion processes in a medium with rectangular Cartesian coordinate system (dot denotes the time derivative): \begin{equation}\label{Zem1} \ddot{u}_i=\frac{\partial\sigma_{ij}}{\partial x_j}+F_i,\;\dot{\eta}^{(q)}=-\frac{\partial J_i^{(q)}}{\partial x_i}+Y^{(q)}\; \left(q=\overline{1,N}\right), \end{equation} where $\sigma_{ij}$ and $J_i^{(q)}$ are the components of the stress tensor and the diffusion flux vector respectively, which are defined as follows: \begin{equation}\label{Zem2} \sigma_{ij}=C_{ijkl}\frac{\partial u_k}{\partial x_l}-\sum_{q=1}^N\alpha_{ij}^{(q)}\eta^{(q)},\; J_i^{(q)}=-\sum_{p=1}^ND_{ij}^{(q)}g^{(qp)}\frac{\partial\eta^{(p)}}{\partial x_j}+\Lambda_{ijkl}^{(q)}\frac{\partial^{2}u_k}{\partial x_j\partial x_l}. \end{equation} Here all quantities are dimensionless. For them the following notation is used: $$ x_i=\frac{x^*_i}{l},\;u_i=\frac{u^*_i}{l},\;\tau=\frac{ct}{l},\;C_{ijkl}=\frac{C_{ijkl}^*}{C_{1111}},\; c^2=\frac{C_{1111}^*}{\rho},\;\alpha_{ij}^{(q)}=\frac{\alpha_{ij}^{*(q)}}{C_{1111}}, $$ $$ D_{ij}^{(q)}=\frac{D_{ij}^{*(q)}}{cl},\;\Lambda_{ijkl}^{(q)}=\frac{m^{(q)}D_{ij}^{*(q)}\alpha_{kl}^{*(q)}n_0^{(q)}}{\rho RT_0cl},\; F_i=\frac{F_i^*}{C_{1111}},\;Y^{(q)}=\frac{LY^{*(q)}}{c}, $$ where $t$ is time; $x_i^*$ are rectangular Cartesian coordinates; $u_{i}^*$ are components of the displacement vector; $l$ is length of the beam; $\eta^{(q)}=n^{(q)}-n_{0}^{(q)}$ is the concentration increment of $q$-th component in the $N$-component medium; $n^{(q)}$ and $n_{0}^{(q)}$ are the actual and initial concentrations; $C_{ijkl}^*$ are components of the elastic constant tensor; $\rho$ is density of the medium; $\alpha_{ij}^{*(q)}$ are coefficients characterizing the volumetric changes of the medium due to diffusion; $D_{ij}^{*(q)}$ are coefficients of self-diffusion; $R$ is the universal gas constant; $T_{0}$ is temperature of the medium; $m^{(q)}$ is the molar mass; $F_{i}^*$, $Y^{*(q)}$ is the body perturbations. To construct the beam bending equations, a transition to the variational formulation of the problem \eqref{Zem1}, \eqref{Zem2} is used. According to the variational principle of Hamilton, the relations \eqref{Zem1} can be regarded as a condition for the stationarity of a certain functional $H\left(u_{i},\eta^{(q)}\right)$, the variation of which is written thus: \begin{equation}\label{Zem3} \begin{split} \delta H=\int_{t_1}^{t_2}d\tau\int_G\left(\ddot{u}_i-\frac{\partial\sigma_{ij}}{\partial x_j}-F_i\right)\delta u_idG+\\ +\sum_{q=1}^N\int_{t_1}^{t_2}d\tau\int_G\left(\dot{\eta}^{(q)}+\frac{\partial J_i^{(q)}}{\partial x_i}-Y^{(q)}\right)\delta\eta^{(q)}dG+\\ +\int_{t_1}^{t_2}\iint\nolimits_{\Pi_{\sigma}}\left(\sigma_{ij}n_j-P_i\right)\delta u_idSd\tau+ \sum_{q=1}^N\int_{t_1}^{t_2}\iint\nolimits_{\Pi_J}\left(J_i^{(q)}-\tilde{I}_i^{(q)}\right)n_i\delta\eta^{(q)}dSd\tau. \end{split} \end{equation} where $P_i$, $\tilde{I}_i^{(q)}$ are the surface perturbations. It is assumed that: 1) The side surface is free from mechanical loads and mass transfer through this is absent. 2) The beam material is a homogeneous isotropic ideal solid compound. 3) The bending of beam is considered in plane $x_1Ox_2$. Mass transfer occurs also in the plane $x_1Ox_2$. 4) The hypothesis of Bernoulli-Euler flat sections is used (here the prime denotes the derivative with respect to the spatial variable $x_1$) $$ u_1=u-x_2v',\;u_2 =v,\;u=u\left(x_1,\tau\right),\;v=v\left(x_1,\tau\right), $$ $$ \eta^{(q)}=N_q+x_2H_q,\;N_q=N_q\left(x_1,\tau\right),\;H_q=H_q\left(x_1,\tau\right). $$ Calculating the variation of the functional \eqref{Zem3}, we obtain the formulation of the problem of the bending of an Euler-Bernoulli beam with taking into account diffusion. It is written as follows with respect to deflection $v$: $$ \frac{I_3}{F}\ddot{v}''-\ddot{v}=\frac{I_3}{F}\left(v^{IV}+\sum_{j=1}^N\alpha_{j}H''_j\right)+\frac{q}{F}+\frac{m'}{F},\;\dot{H}_q =D_qH''_q-\Lambda_q v^{IV}+\frac{Z^{(q)}}{I_3}; $$ $$ \left.\left(v''+\sum_{j=1}^N\alpha_jH_j\right)\right|_{x_1=0,1} =\frac{\left.M\right|_{x_1=0,1}}{I_3}; $$ $$\left.\left(v'''+\sum_{j=1}^N\alpha_jH'_j-\ddot{v'}\right)\right|_{x_1=0,1}=\frac{\left.\left(Q-m\right)\right|_{x_1=0,1}}{I_3}; $$ $$\left.\left(D_qH'_q+\Lambda_qv'''\right)\right|_{x_1=0,1}=-\frac{\left.\Omega^{(q)}\right|_{x_1=0,1}}{I_3}. $$ where $F$ is the cross-sectional area of the beam; $I_3$ is the moment of inertia of beam relative to the axis $Ox_3$; $M$ and $Q$ are bending moment and shearing force; $m$ and $q$ are linearly distributed bending moment and shearing force; $\Omega^{(q)}$ and $Z^{(q)}$ are surface and body sources of mass transfer. The solution of the constructed problem is sought by the Laplace transformation and expansion into incomplete trigonometric Fourier series.

Global properties of the solutions to some Duffing-like Evolution equations

Alain Haraux1

1CNRS, Mathematics, France

Abstract

We discuss some global properties of the semi-flow generated by the scalar ODE $$u’’ + cu’ + g(u) = f(t)$$ where $c>0$, $f$ is a bounded signal and $g(u)$ is an odd polynomial of degree 3 or a more general function with similar properties in a sense to be specified. When $f(u) = au+ bu^3$ with $a, b>0$ (the so-called single well Duffing ODE), many interesting questions have been investigated in the literature as early as the middle of twentieth century, among which rather sharp estimates of the ultimate energy bound of the general solution and the classification of possible asymptotic behaviors, for instance the number of different periodic solutions when $f$ is periodic. It is known that for large periodic forcing terms, subharmonic solutions and chaotic behaviors can appear. In this talk we recall some of the well known results in this direction and more recent advances in the non-chaotic situation both for the single well and the twin well problem corresponding to the case $a<0$. The methodology developped in the last ten years to devise as precise as possible bounds and conditions for the existence of only one (resp. only three) asymptotic regimes has also given interesting results for infinite dimensional « Duffing-like » evolution equations of the form $$u’’ + cu’ + A^2u + g(u) = f(t)$$ where $A$ is a positive self-adjoint operator on an infinite dimensional Hilbert space. The special case $$ g(u) = (b||A^{1/2}u||^2 – a)Au $$ has been recently studied in a joint work of with Marina Ghisi and Massimo Gobbino by improving some of the techniques devised for the twin-well scalar equations, and more realistic models representing small deviations by an external force of some magneto-elastic systems will be the object of future studies, hopefully by using similar tools adapted to this more difficult situation.


Bimetric Theory of Gravitational-Inertial Field in Riemannian and in Finsler-Lagrange Approximation

Jaykov Foukzon1

1Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, math, Israel

Abstract

In present article the original proposition is a generalization of the Einstein's world tensor $g_{ij}$ by the introduction of pure inertial field tensor $g^{ac}_{ij}$ such that $R_{{\mu}{\nu}{\lambda}}^{{\alpha}}(g^{ac}_{ij})\neq0$.Bimetric theory of gravitational-inertial field is considered for the case when the gravitational-Inertial field is governed by either a perfect magnetic fluid.In a series of papers published during the past decade with respect to M\"ossbauer experiments in a rotating system [71]-[75],it has been experimentally shown that the relative energy shift {\Delta}E/E between the source of resonant radiation (situated at the center of the rotating system) and the resonant absorber (located on the rotor rim) is described by the relationship ${\Delta}E/E=-ku^2/c^2$, where u is the tangential velocity of the absorber, c the velocity of light in vacuum, and k some coefficient, which -- contrary to what had been classically predicted equal 1/2 (see for example [35]) -- turns out to be substantially larger than 1/2. It cannot be stressed enough that the equality $k=1/2$ had been predicted by general theory of relativity (GTR) on account of the special relativistic time dilation effect delineated by the tangential displacement of the rotating absorber, where the "clock hypothesis" by Einstein (i.e., the non-reliance of the time rate of any clock on its acceleration [35]) was straightly adopted. Hence, the revealed inequality $k>1/2$ indicates the presence of some additional energy shift (next to the usual time dilation effect arising from tangential displacement alone) between the emitted and absorbed resonant radiation. By using Bimetric Theory of Gravitational-Inertial Field [76] we obtain $k=0.625$ in a good agreement with experimental result $k=0.69$ [75].

MICHAEL AGARANA1

1COVENANT UNIVERSITY, MATHEMATICS, Nigeria

Abstract

This paper is on the dynamics of inverted pendulum as a harmonic mechanical Oscillator. The pendulum considered is inverted, damped and driven. The motion of the dynamical system was modelled. Computer software - Maple, was used to simulate and analyse the model. Some oscillatory phenomena were observed by the exhibition of interesting dynamics by the damped driven inverted pendulum. Specifically, the lower the fixed value of the angular driven force the higher the angular velocity at various values of the angular displacement.


Natural Frequency Analysis of Inverted Pendulum Robot using Energy Method

MICHAEL AGARANA1

1COVENANT UNIVERSITY, MATHEMATICS, Nigeria

Abstract

Dynamical Systems exhibit their natural frequencies when given an initial disturbance and allowed to vibrate freely. This paper attempts to characterize inverted pendulum in terms of one or more natural frequencies. The Energy method was used to determine the natural frequency. This method yielded the equation of motion of the system, which was solved analytically. A computer software – MAPLE, was used to display the three-dimensional figures of the results. The results revealed that the Energy method is closely related to both Rayleigh’s equation methods. Specifically, the results show that the natural frequency of an inverted pendulum is typically a function of time. It was observed that as time increases the natural frequency of the inverted pendulum system decreases.


The dynamics of non-classical correlations under decoherence

ABDALLAH SLAOUI1

1Laboratory Of High Energy Physics, Modeling and Simulation. Faculty of Sciences. Rabat. University mohammed V Morocco, Department of Physics, Morocco

Abstract

Recently, quantum correlations have been the subject of deep studies, principally due to the general belief that they are fundamental resources for different quantum, information processing tasks. These correlations are diffcult to maintain because a quantum system is usually not closed, but in interaction with its environment. In this in work, we employ the concept of local quantum uncertainty (LQU) and trace quantum discord (TQD) to investigate the environmental effects on quantum correlations of a two qubit system. Two decoherence scenarios are considered. The rst one concerns the coupling of the system with two independent bosonic reservoirs. The second scenario deals with a two level system interacting with a quantized electromagnetic radiation.


SCINTILLATION EFFECTS IN THE IONOSPHERE

George Jandieri1

1Institute of Cybernetics, Georgian Technical University, Stochastic analyses and mathematical simulation, Georgia

Abstract

Statistical characteristics of scattered electromagnetic waves in the ionospheric plasma are calculated solving stochastic differential equation for the phase fluctuations taking into account boundary condition, diffraction effects and polarization coefficients for both ordinary and extraordinary waves. Variance and correlation function of the phase fluctuations are obtained for arbitrary correlation function of electron density fluctuations. These second order statistical moments allows to estimate the broadening and shift of maximum of the spatial power spectrum of scattered radiation, and also investigate scintillation effects in the F region of the ionosphere using the experimental data. Numerical calculations are carried out for 3 MHz incident wave and 3D anisotropic spectral function of electron density fluctuations characterizing anisotropic plasma irregularities containing both anisotropy factor and orientation angle of elongated plasma irregularities with respect to the external magnetic field. It is shown that displacement and the width of the SPS for the ordinary and extraordinary waves tends to the saturation increasing anisotropy factor. Shift of maximum of the SPS strongly depends on the orientation angle of anisotropic plasma irregularities, particularly, varying angle in the interval displacement of its maximum increases six times. The angle-of-arrivals in the main plane (containing external magnetic field and wave vector of an incident wave) less than in normal direction. Phase scintillation index for small-scale irregularities fast growth in proportion to the orientation angle and reaching maximum slowly decreases inversely proportion to the characteristic linear scale of plasma irregularities. Small ( ) level scintillations is associated with both positive and negative intensity fluctuations, while the large ( ) levels (primarily corresponds to the positive intensity fluctuations. Sinusoidal type oscillations are observed in the intensity spectrum and are attributed to a Fresnel filtering effect for plasma irregularities having characteristic spatial scale less than the Fresnel radius. Oscillation minima satisfy the “standard relationship” 1: : : … Scintillation level allows to calculate the spectral width (first and second moments) computing the power spectrum and scintillation period. The spectral widths (first and second moments) of the power spectrum and scintillation periods are calculated for “frozen-in” drifting elongated plasma irregularities with apparent velocity transverse to the line of the sight path using the experimental data. If “frozen-in” irregularities drift along the X-axis (perpendicularly to the main plane) with the velocity 100 m/sec, spectral width mHz, period is 100 sec and mHz. If elongated plasma irregularities are moving along the Y-axis in the main plane, sec and mHz. Knowledge data of these oscillations allows to solve the reverse problem - calculate the velocity of plasma irregularities in the principal and perpendicular planes, to estimate characteristic spatial scales and the r.m.s. electron density fluctuations for plasma irregularities smaller than the Fresnel radius.

IMPROVING COMB ALIASING REJECTION USING FILTERS WITH STEPPED TRIANGULAR IMPULSE RESPONSE

Gordana Jovanovic Dolecek1

1Institute INAOE, Electronics, Mexico

Abstract

Decreasing the sample rate by an integer is called decimation. Decimation find applications in audio signal processing, Analog/Digital (A/D) converters, Digital receivers, among others. The signal must be filtered by a digital filter, before decimation, to prevent aliasing which may deteriorate decimated signal. This filter is called anti-aliasing or decimation filter. The simplest decimation filter is a comb filter which has all coefficients equal to unity, and consequently does not require multipliers for its implementation. This filter is usually used in the first stage of decimation. The aliasing occur in the bands around comb zeros, called folding bands. In that way comb filter naturally provides the aliasing rejection in folding bands. However, this attenuation is not enough in many applications, and must be increased. Many methods were proposed to improve aliasing rejection in comb folding bands. The principal goal is keeping comb low complexity, while improving its aliasing rejection. In this paper we propose novel method based on filters with stepped triangular impulse responses (STIR). It is shown that STIR filters are multiplierless filters with three parameters. Using mathematical methods, it is elaborated how to choose the STIR filter parameters to get an improved comb aliasing rejection. The possible filter structures are also analyzed. The method is compared with other methods proposed in literature for comb aliasing rejection improvement,

Abstract

7eme Conférence Internationale - Moscou – 25-29 Juin 2018 – Université Lomonosov Proposition - Conférence invitée sur «Modélisation mathématique en sciences physiques» Auteur : Gerard R. Lemaitre ENGLISH Title : “ Active optics in astronomy – Modeling of deformable substrates : Freeform surfaces for FIREBall and MESSIER” Abstract : Active optics techniques as currently implemented on large telescopes and astronomical instrumentations provide high imaging quality. For ground-based astronomy, the co-addition of adaptive optics again increases angular resolution up to provide diffraction-limited imaging at least in the infrared. Especially active and adaptive optics marked milestone progress in the detection of exoplanets, black holes, and large scale structure of galaxies. This paper is dedicated to highly deformable active optics that can generate non-axisymmetric aspheric surfaces – or freeform surfaces – by use of a minimum number of actuators : a single uniform load acts over the surface of a vase-form substrate whilst under reaction to its elliptical perimeter ring. Two such instruments are presented, 1) the FIREBall telescope and MOS where the freeform reflective diffraction grating is generated by replication of a deformable master grating, and 2) the MESSIER wide-field low-central-obstruction TMA telescope proposal where the freeform mirror is generated by stress figuring and elastic relaxation. Modeling codes to generate these freeform surfaces by plane super-polishing were applied from preliminary analyses with the optics theory of 3rd-order aberrations and elasticity theory of thin elliptical plates. Cross-optimizations required use of Zemax raytracing code and Nastran FEA elasticity code to determine geometry of the deformable substrates. FRANCAIS Titre : Optique active en astronomie – Surfaces « freeform » et modélisation de substrats déformables Résumé : Les techniques d’optique active actuelles installées sur les grands télescopes et l’instrumentation astronomique fournissent des images de haute qualité. Pour l’astronomie au sol, l’ajout de l’optique adaptative augmente encore la résolution angulaire jusqu’a fournir des images de diffraction au moins en infrarouge. Notamment les optiques active et adaptative ont permis des progrès remarquables sur la détection d’exo-planètes, de trous noirs, et des structures à grande échelle des galaxies. Cet article est dédié à l’optique active de grande déformation pouvant générer des surfaces asphériques non de révolution – dites surfaces freeform – par l’emploi d’un nombre minimum d’actionneurs : une seule charge uniforme agit sur la surface d’un substrat de forme en vase tandis que la réaction est absorbée par la jupe elliptique du contour. Deux tels instruments sur présentés, 1) le télescope et MOS FIREBall dont le réseau de diffraction freeform par réflexion est généré par réplique d’un réseau mère sous déformation, and 2) le projet de telescope TMA a grand champ et faible obstruction centrale MESSIER dont le miroir freeform est généré pas taille plane sous contrainte et relaxation élastique. Les logiciels de modélisation permettant de générer ces surfaces freeform par super-polissage ont été appliqués à partir d’analyses préliminaires de la théorie optique des aberrations du 3eme ordre et de la théorie de l’élasticité des plaques minces elliptiques. Les optimisations croisées avec le logiciel de passage de rayons Zemax et le logiciel d’élasticité par éléments finis Nastran ont permis de déterminer la géométrie des substrats déformables.


Mechanism of the high-viscosity water shut-off baffle formation in vertical production wells

Guzel Bulgakova1

1Ufa State Aviation Technical University, Mathematics, Russian Federation

Abstract

An important engineering task for mature oil fields with high water cut production wells is water shut-off (WSO) in these wells. For successful WSO operations in the intervals of porous and fractured-porous formations it is necessary to create appropriate mathematical models, taking into account rock mechanical properties, elastic properties of water-shutoff agents as well as other technological parameters. In this regard, the problem arises on the mathematical model development for evaluating the strength of water shutoff baffles from cement slurry and synthetic resins in porous and fractured-porous formations in production water-cut wells. Based on the solution of Lame problem for an isotropic ideally elastic body, a model is proposed that predicts the WSO synthetic resin baffle strength in porous and fractured-porous formations in production water-cut wells. The strength diagrams were constructed as a function of WSO material volume, bottomhole pressure, reservoir geomechanical properties, WSO material elastic properties, and formation depth. The results of mathematical modeling are compared with actual field data.

Comparison between two interpolation methods: Kriging and EPH

Gottfried Berton1

1Société de Calcul Mathématique, Mathématiques, France

Abstract

The aim of this study is to compare two methods of interpolation, namely Kriging (a standard algorithm), mainly used in geostatistics, and the Experimental Probabilistic Hypersurface (developed by SCM SA). We study several technical points, such as their ability to take uncertainties into account, to return an uncertainty on the interpolation, the quality of the numerical procedures, etc. The Experimental Probabilistic Hypersurface (EPH) is a minimal information model, which only uses the existing data and makes as less artificial hypothesis on the data as possible. The Kriging on the contrary, relies on an estimation of the variability of the data using a variogram.


Pressure pulse propagation in a double-layered elastic tube with viscoelastic liquid

Abstract

The objective of the study is to describe the effect of liquid viscoelasticity on the propagation of a pressure signal, initially generated at the pipe end, in the case of a layered tube. The studied waveguide consists of a thin double-layered cylindrical shell filled with compressible viscoelastic liquid. It is supposed that liquid rheology follows the 3-parameter Oldroyd rheological model. Liquid dynamics in the wave is described within the quasi-one-dimensional approach. It is assumed that the bending stresses in the tube wall can be neglected, as compared with the membrane ones. The solution of the momentum balance equation for the layered shell, found in this approximation, is coupled with a transient solution, describing liquid flow in the wave, by appropriate boundary conditions. The resulting system of equations is solved by the operational method for a standard finite pressure signal, generated at the initial moment of time at the pipe end. The Laplace image of the pressure disturbance in the wave is inverted numerically. The obtained data indicate that combination of elastic properties of the shell’s layers may influence essentially the manifestation of liquid viscoelasticity through a characteristic time of the pressure transient, which is highly sensitive to effective parameters of the pipe wall. The general conclusion, following from the data is that increase in the liquid relaxation time yields a marked decrease in the signal attenuation along the pipe.

Abstract

The complex permitting spectra and thermodynamic properties of 1,2-dichloroethane (DE) and n,n-dimethylformamide (NMF) has been obtained at 15°C temperature in the frequency range of 10 MHz to 30 GHz by using time domain reflectometry technique for 11 different concentrations of the system. A complex spectrum gives information regarding dielectric dispersion (ɛʹ) and dielectric absorption (ɛʺ), which indicates the purity of the liquid mixture. In binary mixture of polar liquids mixed together, there is a change in the energy of the system. This change in energy can be interpreted with thermodynamic parameters such as free energy of activation (G), molar enthalpy of activation (H) and molar entropy of activation (S).

Abstract

P. Martin, J. Olivares and L. Cortes, Universidad de Antofagasta, Chile. Fractional derivatives have become very important in several areas of Engineering as hysteresis cycle, etc. In this paper the solutions of linear nonhomogeneous differential equations of order α are considered . Simple initial conditions are taken first are more complicated forms are also analyzed later. Fractional derivatives of order α are studied for α=1/4,1/3,1/2,2/3 ,3/4 and 1. With simple conditions the solutions are combinations of hypergeometric functions of the type: 〖_1^ 〗F_2(a,b,c;t^3/9) and 〖_2^ 〗F_3(a_1,a_2;〖b_1,b_2,c;t〗^3/9). Caputo definition for fractional derivatives are used . The solutions are found using the Laplace transform first and the inverse transform later . The analysis using α as a rational number m/p do not lead to a general solution.

Simulation of hardware Z-buffer for removing invisible models of three-dimensional objects

Vladimir Roganov1

1Penza State Technological University & Penza State University of Architecture and Construction, Chair Information and technological systems, Russian Federation

Abstract

The article is devoted to the solution of one of the problems arising in the synthesis of images using computer graphics methods, namely, the removal of invisible primitives from which the models of objects found in the visibility pyramid were typed. An algorithm for preliminary sorting of visible primitives has been developed, without regard to their belonging to individual models. If the primitives sorted into such images are called in order of priority, then there is no longer any need to remove invisible primitives. The algorithm is implemented in practice and proved effective in the synthesis of images in real time. Using the proposed algorithm instead of the popular Schumacher method, allows more than 30 percent to increase the number of visible primitives in real time.

Abstract

Currently, the global economy is experiencing a global innovation gap, representing a set of significant disparities in the innovative development of individual countries. The global innovation gap is a consequence of a number of objective phenomena and processes taking place in different countries and regions. The study of the nature of the innovation gap implies the study of specific problems in the innovative development of countries, as well as the search for ways to solve them. This article examines the relationship between the global innovation index and the positions of national universities in international rankings. We have chosen a group of countries (developed, developing and transition economies) and their universities which ranked best in international rankings. The sample consisted of 24 countries, the university's rating was chosen as the dependent variable, and the country's rating on the global innovation index was selected as an independent variable. After the calculations, the linear pair correlation coefficient was set equal to 0.913, which indicates a high level of coupling between the variables. The coefficient of determination indicates that in 83.35% of cases the changes in x lead to a change in y. In other words, the accuracy of selecting the regression equation is high. The remaining 16.65% change in Y is due to factors not taken into account in the model (as well as by specification errors). The conducted studies confirmed the connection between the quality of education, the research sector of universities and the level of innovative development of countries. This made it possible to propose a set of measures to strengthen the positions of national universities in international rankings and increase their contribution to the transition of the Russian economy to an innovative development path.

Abstract

Analytically discussed is the nonlinear propagations of spiraling elliptic beams in nonlocal nonlinear media with linear anisotropy by using an approach of two dimensional asynchronous fractional Fourier transform. The spiraling elliptic beams exhibit a kind of molecule-like libration due to the combined effects of the linear anisotropy and the orbital angular momentum. Depending on the anisotropy parameter of the media, the molecule-like libration mode has two different kinds of dynamical behaviors. When the anisotropy parameter of the media is a rational number, the spiraling elliptic beams evolve as the breathers and can recover their initial shapes after one propagation period. However, when the anisotropy parameter of the media is an irrational number, all the related parameters of spiraling elliptic beams such as the optical intensity, the beam width, and the angular velocity cannot evolve in a periodic manner, and no spiraling elliptic breathers exist in this case.

Abstract

It is demonstrated that the orbital angular momentum (OAM) carried by the elliptic beam without the phase-singularity can induce the anisotropic diffraction (AD). The quantitative relation between the OAM and its induced AD is analytically obtained by a comparison of two different kinds of (1+2)-dimensional beam propagations: the linear propagations of the elliptic beam without the OAM in an anisotropic medium and that with the OAM in an isotropic one. In the former case, the optical beam evolves as the fundamental mode of the eigenmodes when its ellipticity is the square root of the anisotropic parameter defined in the paper; while in the latter case, the fundamental mode exists only when the OAM carried by the optical beam equals a specific one called a critical OAM. The OAM always enhances the beam-expanding in the major-axis direction and weakens that in the minor-axis direction no matter the sign of the OAM, and the larger the OAM, the stronger the AD induced by it. Besides, the OAM can also make the elliptic beam rotate, and the absolute value of the rotation angle is no larger than $\pi/2$ during the propagation.

Unification of Newtonian Physics with Einstein Relativity Theory by using Generalized Metrics of Complex Spacetime and application to the Motions of Planets and Stars, eliminating Dark Matter

Abstract

“Any space of constant curvature is conformally flat; that is, has a metric that can be expressed as a multiple of the Euclidean metric” [1]. At the same way, Generalized Special Relativity (SR) relates the frames of Relativistic Inertial observers (RIOs) where the spacetime has the metric gI=diag(gI00, gI11, gI11, gI11). The parameter ωI (where ωI^2=gI11/gI00) is contained in the matrix (ΛI) of the Euclidean Closed Linear Transformation of complex spacetime (LSTT) [2]. If ωI is an imaginary number, the elements of ΛI are complex numbers. So, the corresponding spacetime is necessarily complex and there exists real Universal Speed UI (where UI^2=-c^2/ωI^2). In addition, the complex Cartesian Coordinates (CCs) of the theory may be turned to the corresponding real CCs, in order to be perceived by human senses. The new real transformation is not closed (the corresponding matrices ΛIR do not form a group) and the successive transformations produce Generalized Thomas Rotation. The specific value ωI=±i gives Vossos transformation (VT) endowed with Lorentz metric (for gI11=1) of complex spacetime and invariant speed of light in vacuum (UI=c), which produce the theory of Euclidean Complex Relativistic Mechanics (ECRMs) [3]. The corresponding real matrix (ΛIR) is the matrix of Lorentz Boost (ΛIR=ΛL). If ωI is a real number (ωI≠0) the elements of the ΛI are real numbers. So, the corresponding spacetime is real, but there exist imaginary UI. The specific value ωI=0 gives Galilean Transformation (GT) with invariant time, in which any other closed LSTT is reduced, if one RIO has small velocity wrt another RIO. Thus we unify Theories of Physics (TPs) such as Newtonian Physics (NPs) keeping the formalism of Einstein Relativity Theory (ERT). The generalized definition of Proper Time (τ) gives us the possibility to compute four-velocity, four-momentum, Relativistic Doppler Shift etc, building the whole structure of the Generalized SR and General Relativity (GR). For instance the Generalized Relativistic Energy of Rest Mass (m) is E=-m c^2/ωI^2. In case of NPs, the annihilation energy becomes infinite. Thus the Lomonosov-Lavoisier Law becomes clear theorem of NPs. In case that we relate accelerated observers with variable metric of spacetime, we have the case of Generalized GR. For being that clear, we produce the 1st Generalized Schwarzschild metric (1GSM) and 2nd Generalized Schwarzschild metric (2GSM), which are in accordance with any SR based on Generalized metrics gI and Einstein field equations [4]. We combine 2GSM with Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND) [5-9], achieving MOND relativization and we then pass to the case of flat spacetime with Lorentz metric (Minkowski space), extending MOND methods to ERT. We use Simple and Standard Interpolating Function (μ) to the Lorentzian-Einsteinian 2GSM for the explanation of the Rotation Curves in Galaxy NGC 3198 as well as the Solar system, eliminating Dark Matter [10-14]. Generally, our approach, in non rotating black hole, planetary and star system scale, coincides to the original Schwarzschild metric, while in galactic scale, it gives MONDian results. In universal scale, the gravitational field strength becomes negative producing slight antigravity. Moreover, we compute the corresponding Lagrangian, geodesics, equations of motion, precession of planets’ orbits etc, resulting formulas which are referred to any TPs. The used theory is open to any other modification as well as the Generalization can be extended to other metrics of spacetime such as Kerr metric, producing Generalized field strength of rotating mass systems. Besides, the theory gives us the possibility of using mathematical objects (such as μ) which have been produced by one specific TPs (such as NPs) to be suitably transformed and then effectively be used in another TPs (such as ERT).


Schwarzschild-de Sitter black hole in canonical quantization

Hossein Ghaffarnejad1

Abstract

We solve Wheeler-De Witt metric probability wave equation for the Schwarzschild de Sitter black hole by applying the perturbation method. We obtained leading order solution which reduces to maximal probability condition of the metric as quantized spherically symmetric slices on $`t=Constant`$ hyper-surfaces with radiuses $\frac{r_n}{2M}=e^{\frac{2\pi n}{\sqrt{|12a+1|}}};$ $n=0,\pm1,\pm2,\cdots,$ where `$2M$` is Schwarzschild radius of the black hole and $a<0$ is a suitable dimensionless integral constant. This result satisfies Penrose hypotheses for cosmic censorship where a causal singularity may be covered by a horizon surface.

Abstract

In this project, a cyclodextrin-based adsorbent was synthesized for the removal of ibuprofen (IB) from pharmaceutical sewage. Our adsorbent was prepared via solution blending of (2-hydroxypropyl)-β-cyclodextrin (HPBCD) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), followed by glutaraldehyde treatment. The obtained adsorbent is in the form of transparent film and is very easy to handle. Its FTIR and thermal analysis results show that it is well crosslinked, preventing it from dissolving in sewage. Our cyclodextrin-based adsorbent has good IB adsorption ability and can adsorb up to 2.56 mg/g IB. It has better IB adsorption ability than other absorbents including mesoporous silica, volcanic soil, and zeolite. Its IB adsorption capacity increases with the HPBCD content and IB concentration. It can remove IB effectively in acidic condition but it has a poor IB adsorption ability at high pH value. Its adsorption kinetics can be well described by the pseudo-second-order kinetic model, as shown in Figure 1. More than 90% of adsorbed IB molecules desorb within 1 hour by simply soaking the consumed sample in 5% ethanol-water solution. As shown in Figure 2, IB molecules are entrapped by HPBCD inside our eco-adsorbent via host–guest interaction [1]. This provides strong attraction between IB and our eco-adsorbent for IB adsorption. Meanwhile, this interaction is reversible so the desorption of adsorbed IB molecules from the eco-adsorbent is allowed.


Nonlinear distributional geometry and Colombeau analysis of gravitation singularities in distributional general relativity with distributional Levi-Civit‘a connection

Abstract

It seemed natural to identify gravitation singularities with singular values of the metric or curvature components and their scalar combinations [1]. However, under formal and mathematically abnormal calculation which known from a very old physics handbooks [2]-[3], such a notion depends on choosing a reference frame and includes fictious singularities which being real for some observers are absent for others.In a nutshell, there is a widespread belief that there exist true physical singularities and unphysical,i.e.,coordinate singularities. We try to base our approach to the problem of the gravitation singularities on the fact that a gravitation singularity leads by a natural way, directly to a singularity of a space-time structure in sense of Colombeau distributional geometry [4]-[6].We aim to describe gravitation singularities using mathematically rigorous approach via Colombeau nonlinear distributional space-time structures with distributional Levi-Civit‘a connection.We pointed out that some important physical singularities which many years mistakenly considered as coordinate singularities.

A relativistic bouncer on a vibrating surface

Abstract

We consider a special relativity scenario in order to study the dynamical behaviour of a particle flying under the influence of a gravitational field, colliding successive times against a rigid vibrating surface, via a restitution coefficient. We define two re-scaled dimensionless dynamical variables, namely: the relative particle velocity {$W$} with respect to the surface's velocity, and the real parameter {$\tau$} accounting for the temporal evolution of the system. In order to analyze the system's nonlinear dynamical behaviour, we construct the mapping at the particle-surface contact point, described for the {$k'th$} collision, by the couple of variables {$\left(\tau_{k}\,W_{k}\right)$}. Then, from the dynamical mapping, we compute the fixed point trajectory and analyze its stability. We find the dynamical behaviour of the fixed point trajectory to be stable or unstable, according to the values of the re-scaled vibrating surface amplitude, the restitution coefficient and the auxiliary variable {$\beta\in\left(0,1\right)$}, sweeping from the non relativistic to the ultra relativistic regimes. Other important dynamical aspects such as the phase space volume and the one cycle vibrating surface (decomposed into absorbing and transmitting regions) are also discussed. Furthermore, the model rescues well known results in the non relativistic limit.

2BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus, Mathematics, India

Abstract

In this talk, the dynamical systems analysis approach is applied; to study the behavior of the cosmological models in general theory of relativity and modified theory gravity will be discussed. The cosmological models are buildup with a set of complicated nonlinear differential equations. It is a challenging problem to find an exact solution of a system of nonlinear differential equations in cosmology. Therefore, in this talk the dynamical systems analysis techniques will be applied to study the qualitative behavior of the cosmological models through the system of nonlinear differential equations, which are involved in dark energy models from different aspects. One of the main objectives of this talk is to bridge the gap between dynamical systems analysis, an area of applied mathematics, and cosmology, an area of astrophysics and astronomy that studies the universe as a whole.


Traversable wormholes in $f(R,T)$ gravity

PRADYUMN SAHOO1

1Birla Institute of Technology and Science-Pilani, Hyderabad Campus, Mathematics, India

Abstract

Wormholes are tunnels connecting different regions in space-time. They were obtained originally as a solution for Einstein's General Relativity theory and according to this theory they need to be filled by an exotic kind of anisotropic matter. In the present sense, by ``exotic matter'' we mean matter that does not satisfy the energy conditions. In this article we propose the modelling of wormholes within an alternative gravity theory that proposes an extra material (rather than geometrical) term in its gravitational action. Our solutions are obtained from well-known particular cases of the wormhole metric potentials, named redshift and shape functions, and yield the wormholes to be filled by a phantom fluid, that is, a fluid with equation of state parameter $\omega<-1$. In possession of the solutions for the wormhole material content, we also apply the energy conditions to them. The features of those are carefully discussed.


Implementation of computational grid

Zainab Nayyar1

1Bahria University, Software Engineering, Pakistan

Abstract

Few years back supercomputers were used for large computational work and they were used only for specific purposes, but after the completion of particular task one could not use them for any other general purpose and not more than one task could run on supercomputers at a time. After the invention of desktops it becomes easy to run more than one task but large computational work cannot be handled by them due to the limitation of resources. Due to these limitations, grid technology has emerged to a large scale to cater the jobs of supercomputers but without the resource limitation. This paper shows the implementation and working of a computational grid, by submitting jobs we can monitor the utilization of resources in grid environment.

Recurrent neural networks as approximators of non-linear filters operators

Elena Solovyeva1

1St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University, Theoretical Electrical Engineering Department , Russian Federation

Abstract

In the cases when the mathematical model of a device is complicated, or it can not be constructed because of the lack of sufficient information about the researched object, an approach based on the description of a unique relationship between the sets of input and output signals is used. Such situations often arise on modelling non-linear devices with high accuracy. The point is to approximate a non-linear operator establishing the unique input-output correspondence by mathematical constructions (multidimensional polynomials, regression models, neural networks). Recurrent neural networks possessing the properties of dynamics and nonlinearity are considered as mathematical models within the input-output approach. Among the different types of neural networks and multidimensional polynomials, it is a cellular neural network, that provides the highest accuracy of modelling a non-linear filter used to restore images distorted by non-Gaussian noise, for instance, by impulse one. It results from the comparison of root-mean-square errors obtained for the different non-linear filters models and for the different probability densities of impulse noise in images. It is shown, that there is possibility to rise the filtration accuracy by applying cascade filters with the different types of the included units models.


Quantum Like Measurements in Biological Systems

Yehuda Roth1

1Oranim College, Science, Israel

Abstract

We identify a living system as one that, in order to survive, continual measurements on its surroundings (and on itself). We also define a conceptual observer that reads and interprets the output of the measurements. In a different discipline of science, quantum measurements are also associated with an observer who interprets reality through the collapse procedure. However, this time, the interpretation has nothing to do with survival skills. Nevertheless, since both disciplines belong to the science of Nature, we suspect they obey similar rules. Indeed, we demonstrate that both measurements follow one fundamental principle: they both correspond with re-coherent processes. Applying a quantum-like model, such as that of a spin glass neural network, we describe brain activity with the Hilbert space concept in what we refer to as quantum-like measurements.

Problems of the form: $$\partial ^α u_i (x,t))/(\partial t^α )=c L_i u_i (x,t)+c f_i (H(t),u)+ c^2 F_i (S(t),x,u),t\lt 0 ,0\lt α\leq 1 \\ u_i (x,0)=[φ] _i (x), i = 1,……,n$$ Are considered, where $L_1,L_2,...,L_n$ are elliptic partial differential operators of higher orders and with coefficients depending on $x={x_1,….,x_m } ,\infty \lt x_j \lt \infty, j=1,2,…,m$. It is supposed that H(t) ia an nxN matrix with elements that are statistically stationary processes with the property of ergodicity of the mean.

We present the results of the investigation of a family of dynamic systems on a real plane containing reciprocal cubic and square polynomials in their right parts. A Poincare method of serial mappings have been used. All possible for the systems under consideration topologically different types of phase portraits in a Poincare circle have been described and constructed.

Was Polchinski wrong? Colombeau distributional Rindler spacetime with distributional Levi-Civita connection induced vacuum dominance. Unruh efect revisited

Jaykov Foukzon1

1Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, math, Israel

Abstract

The vacuum energy density of free scalar quantum field Ф  in a Rindler distributional spacetime with distributional Levi-Civita connection is considered. It has been widely believed that, except in very extreme situations, the inuence of acceleration on quantum elds should amount to just small, sub-dominant contributions. Here we argue that this belief is wrong by showing that in a Rindler distributional background spacetime with distributional Levi-Civita connection the vacuum energy of free quantum elds is forced, by the very same background distributional spacetime such a Rindler distributional background spacetime, to become dominant over any classical energy density component. This semiclassical gravity effect finds its roots in the singular behavior of quantum fields on a Rindler distributional space-time with distributional Levi-Civita connection. In particular we obtain that the vacuum uctuations <Ф^2> has a singular behavior on a Rindler horizon. Therefore suciently strongly accelerated observer burns up near the Rindler horizon. Thus Polchinski's account doesn't violation of the Einstein equivalence principle.


A biomechanical model for the idiopathic scoliosis using robotic traction devices

Joao Fialho1

1British University of Vietnam, Mathematics, Vietnam

Abstract

The mathematical modelling of idiopathic scoliosis has been studied throughout the years. The models presented on those papers are based on the orthotic stabilization of the idiopathic scoliosis, which are based on a transversal force being applied to the human spine on a continuous form. When considering robotic traction devices, the existent models cannot be used, as the type of forces applied are no longer transversal nor applied in a continuous manner. In robotic devices, vertical traction is applied and in addition parameters such as magnitude, direction and angle of the force applied are required and and essential if the best therapy plan is to be administered. In this study we propose a mathematical model to the idiopathic scoliosis, using robotic traction devices, and with the parameters obtained from the mathematical modeling, set up a case-by-case individualized therapy plan, for each patient. To the best of our knowledge, modelling involving these assumptions was never investigated before, neither was the usage of modeling to establish viable and effective bounds for all he possible parameters in a robotic traction device.


Approximate Bayesian Computation applied to Metrology for Nuclear Safeguards

Tom Burr1

1International Atomic Energy Agency, Safeguards/Information Management, Austria

Abstract

Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) is a candidate approach when an explicit likelihood for the data is not available, but there is a model that outputs predicted observables for specified input parameters. This paper briefly reviews ABC and then describes a few measurement methods used in nuclear safeguards, some of which have, and others of which do not have corresponding likelihoods. A key aspect of metrology is uncertainty quantification (UQ), whether approached from physical first principles (“bottom-up”) or empirically by comparing measurements from different methods and/or laboratories (“top-down”). Although ABC is not yet commonly used in metrology, these example measurement methods in nuclear safeguards illustrate advantages in using ABC compared to current bottom-up approaches. ABC is also shown to be useful in top-down UQ approaches. As a diagnostic, in bottom-up and top-down applications of ABC, the actual coverages of probability intervals are compared to the true coverages. If an ABC-based interval for a parameter is constructed to contain approximately 95% of the true parameter values, then it is important to verify that the actual coverage is close to 95%. It is shown that one advantage of ABC is its apparent robustness to misspecifying the likelihood while still maintaining good agreement between nominal and actual probability interval coverage compared to other Bayesian approaches.

Abstract

Analytical expression describing the dependence of the p+-n junction leakage current on the doping level of the highly doped p+- type region is derived taking into account a whole set of nonlinear physical effects: electron-hole scattering, Auger recombination, band-gap narrowing, and nonlinear dependences of charge carrier lifetime and mobility on the doping level. It is shown that the dependence of the leakage current has a minimum at which the injection ability of the p+- type emitter is at a maximum. The dependence of the extremum position on the main parameters of the heavily doped p+- layer is analyzed. The data obtained make it possible to optimize the structure of high power silicon devices and to facilitate the adequacy of numerical calculations.

Abstract

Fast and ultrafast switch-on processes in p-n diodes at very high current densities j and very short current rise time t0 have been investigated. It is demonstrated that even at relatively modest values of the rate of current density rise dj/dt, the switch-on transient fundamentally differs from that in the "classical" quasineutral mode. The switch-on processes occur in modes with broken neutrality. The base resistivity is modulated by fast hole and electron waves that propagate toward each other at the maximum possible (saturated) velocity. The conditions for the appearance of fast waves modes have been established. Analytical expressions for the initial stage of these waves propagation have been derived. Adequate computer simulation confirms the analytical results.

Abstract

It is proved, that it is possible to change by places a cosine and sine transform of Fourier with the opposite sign.The fact is the basic result of the article. From the fact we obtain, that the cosine and sine transform of Fourier are equal on the module. All the transform of Fourier are considered on the positive axis: \[ |\int\limits_{0}^{\infty} \cos {vx} \, u (x) dx |=| \int\limits_{0}^{\infty} \sin {vx} \, u (x) dx|,v\in(0,+\infty),\] for wide class of functions.


Mariotte’s Question and the Laplace Modeling

Robert Finn1

1Stanford University, Mathematics, United States

Abstract

The 17th Century priest and chemist Edme Mariotte observed that two floating balls could either attract or repel each other, in ways that varied with their sizes, materials, and separation. He attempted to find quantitative laws describing the event and determining the mutual forces, but did not succeed and abandoned the project. A half-century later, Johann Segner introduced the concept of surface tension, and in 1805 Thomas Young correlated that concept with rise of liquids neighboring objects that are partially immersed in them. In 1806, Laplace returned to Mariotte’s problem via this new concept, and considered the limiting case in which the balls each have infinite radius, thus reducing the problem to that of finding the fluid rise heights and forces acting between two vertical parallel plates, partly immersed in liquid and subject to a vertical gravity field. Laplace wrote with characteristic insight and produced impressive conclusions, these yielding in their turn a panoply of intriguing new questions. Inexplicably, at that crucial point he abandoned the study and turned his attention elsewhere. His achievements have been documented in many expositions, but –– with one or two notable exceptions –– almost two centuries then passed with little further significant conceptual advance. The present study takes the Laplace modeling as starting point, and addresses some of the questions he left open. We seek here to characterize all ways in which such a fluid interface can join two such plates, and to determine the resultant horizontal forces of mutual attraction or repulsion of the plates. We were led in some instances to new information that was surprising for us, encompassing situations of counterintuitive and even of discontinuous behavior. In cooperation with Sung Kwon Cho and his students, we were able to confirm some of our predictions via laboratory measurements.
