Statistical Analysis of Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus is a disease where the glucosis-content of the blood does not automatically decrease to a ”normal” value between 70 mg/dl and 120 mg/dl (3,89 mmol/l and 6,67 mmol/l) between perhaps one hour (or two hours) after eating. Several instruments can be used to arrive at a relative low increase of the glucosis-content. Besides drugs (oral antidiabetica, insulin) the blood-sugar content can mainly be influenced by (i) eating, i.e., consumption of the right amount of food at the right time (ii) physical ...
On Oseen Resolvent Estimates: A Negative Result
We consider the resolvent problem for the scalar Oseen equation in the whole space R^3. We show that for small values of the resolvent parameter it is impossible to obtain an L^2-estimate analogous to the one which is valid for the Stokes resolvent, even if the resolvent parameter has positive real part.
Orthogonal polynomials and recurrence equations, operator equations and factorization
(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)
This article surveys the classical orthogonal polynomial systems of the Hahn class, which are solutions of second-order differential, difference or q-difference equations. Orthogonal families satisfy three-term recurrence equations. Example applications of an algorithm to determine whether a three-term recurrence equation has solutions in the Hahn class - implemented in the computer algebra system Maple - are given. Modifications of these families, in particular associated orthogonal systems, satisfy fourth-order ...
The Navier-Stokes Equations with Particle Methods
The non-stationary nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations describe the motion of a viscous incompressible fluid flow for 0<t≤T in some bounded three-dimensional domain. Up to now it is not known wether these equations are well-posed or not. Therefore we use a particle method to develop a system of approximate equations. We show that this system can be solved uniquely and globally in time and that its solution has a high degree of spatial regularity. Moreover we prove that the system of approximate solutions has an ...
Lagrangian approximations and weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations
The motion of a viscous incompressible fluid flow in bounded domains with a smooth boundary can be described by the nonlinear Navier-Stokes equations. This description corresponds to the so-called Eulerian approach. We develop a new approximation method for the Navier-Stokes equations in both the stationary and the non-stationary case by a suitable coupling of the Eulerian and the Lagrangian representation of the flow, where the latter is defined by the trajectories of the particles of the fluid. The method leads to ...
Computations in Relative Algebraic K-Groups
Let G be finite group and K a number field or a p-adic field with ring of integers O_K. In the first part of the manuscript we present an algorithm that computes the relative algebraic K-group K_0(O_K[G],K) as an abstract abelian group. We solve the discrete logarithm problem, both in K_0(O_K[G],K) and the locally free class group cl(O_K[G]). All algorithms have been implemented in MAGMA for the case K = \IQ. In the second part of the manuscript we prove formulae for the torsion subgroup of K_0(\IZ[G],\IQ) for large ...
Computing Generators of Free Modules over Orders in Group Algebras
Let E be a number field and G be a finite group. Let A be any O_E-order of full rank in the group algebra E[G] and X be a (left) A-lattice. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for X to be free of given rank d over A. In the case that the Wedderburn decomposition E[G] \cong \oplus_xM_x is explicitly computable and each M_x is in fact a matrix ring over a field, this leads to an algorithm that either gives elements \alpha_1,...,\alpha_d \in X such that X = A\alpha_1 \oplus ... \oplusA\alpha_d or determines ...
The Navier-Stokes Equations with Time Delay
In the present paper we use a time delay epsilon > 0 for an energy conserving approximation of the nonlinear term of the non-stationary Navier-Stokes equations. We prove that the corresponding initial value problem (N_epsilon)in smoothly bounded domains G \subseteq R^3 is well-posed. Passing to the limit epsilon \rightarrow 0 we show that the sequence of stabilized solutions has an accumulation point such that it solves the Navier-Stokes problem (N_0) in a weak sense (Hopf).
Artificial boundary conditions for the Stokes and Navier-Stokes equations in domains that are layer-like at infinity
(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)
Artificial boundary conditions are presented to approximate solutions to Stokes- and Navier-Stokes problems in domains that are layer-like at infinity. Based on results about existence and asymptotics of the solutions v^infinity, p^infinity to the problems in the unbounded domain Omega the error v^infinity - v^R, p^infinity - p^R is estimated in H^1(Omega_R) and L^2(Omega_R), respectively. Here v^R, p^R are the approximating solutions on the truncated domain Omega_R, the parameter R controls the exhausting of Omega. ...
Stability of preconditioned finite volume schemes at low Mach numbers
(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2004)
In , Guillard and Viozat propose a finite volume method for the simulation of inviscid steady as well as unsteady flows at low Mach numbers, based on a preconditioning technique. The scheme satisfies the results of a single scale asymptotic analysis in a discrete sense and comprises the advantage that this can be derived by a slight modification of the dissipation term within the numerical flux function. Unfortunately, it can be observed by numerical experiments that the preconditioned approach combined with an ...
