Solution properties of the de Branges differential recurrence equation

(2005)

In this 1984 proof of the Bieberbach and Milin conjectures de Branges used a positivity result of special functions which follows from an identity about Jacobi polynomial sums thas was published by Askey and Gasper in 1976. The de Branges functions Tn/k(t) are defined as the solutions of a system of differential recurrence equations with suitably given initial values. The essential fact used in the proof of the Bieberbach and Milin conjectures is the statement Tn/k(t)<=0. In 1991 Weinstein presented another proof of ...

Preconditioner updates applied to CFD model problems

(2007)

In the present paper we concentrate on solving sequences of nonsymmetric linear systems with block structure arising from compressible flow problems. We attempt to improve the solution process by sharing part of the computational effort throughout the sequence. This is achieved by application of a cheap updating technique for preconditioners which we adapted in order to be used for our applications. Tested on three benchmark compressible flow problems, the strategy speeds up the entire computation with an acceleration ...

Construction of recurrent fractal interpolation surfaces(RFISs) on rectangular grids

(2008)

A recurrent iterated function system (RIFS) is a genaralization of an IFS and provides
nonself-affine fractal sets which are closer to natural objects. In general, it's attractor
is not a continuous surface in R3. A recurrent fractal interpolation surface (RFIS) is an
attractor of RIFS which is a graph of bivariate continuous interpolation function. We
introduce a general method of generating recurrent interpolation surface which are at-
tractors of RIFSs about any data set on a grid.

Construction of fractal interpolation surfaces on rectangular grids

(2008)

We present a general method of generating continuous fractal interpolation surfaces
by iterated function systems on an arbitrary data set over rectangular grids and estimate
their Box-counting dimension.

The Parity of the Number of Irreducible Factors for Some Pentanomials

(2008)

It is well known that Stickelberger-Swan theorem is very important for determining reducibility of polynomials over a binary field. Using this theorem it was determined the parity of the number of irreducible factors for some kinds of polynomials over a binary field, for instance, trinomials,
tetranomials, self-reciprocal polynomials and so on. We discuss this problem for type II pentanomials namely x^m +x^{n+2} +x^{n+1} +x^n +1 \in\ IF_2 [x].
Such pentanomials can be used for efficient implementing multiplication ...

Approximate solutions and error estimates for a Stokes boundary value problem

(2009)

The aim of this paper is the numerical treatment of a boundary value
problem for the system of Stokes' equations. For this we extend the method
of approximate approximations to boundary value problems. This method
was introduced by V. Maz'ya in 1991 and has been used until now for the
approximation of smooth functions defined on the whole space and for the
approximation of volume potentials.
In the present paper we develop an approximation procedure for the solution
of the interior Dirichlet problem for the ...

On Nonlinear Preconditioners in Newton-Krylov-Methods for Unsteady Flows

(2008)

The application of nonlinear schemes like dual time stepping as preconditioners in matrix-free Newton-Krylov-solvers is considered and analyzed. We provide a novel formulation of the left preconditioned operator that says it is in fact linear in the matrix-free sense, but changes the Newton scheme. This allows to get some insight in the convergence properties of these schemes which are demonstrated through numerical results.

Negative Größen bei Diophant?

(Universität Kassel, FB 17, Mathematik/Informatik, 2005)

In this paper we champion Diophantus of Alexandria and Isabella Basmakova against Norbert Schappacher. In two publications ([46] and [47]) he puts forward inter alia two propositions: Questioning Diophantus' originality he considers affirmatively the possibility, that the Arithmetica are the joint work of a team of authors like Bourbaki. And he calls Basmakova's claim (in [5]), that Diophantus uses negative numbers, a "nonsense", reproaching her for her "thoughtlessness". First, we disprove Schappacher's Bourbaki ...

Bieberbach's Conjecture, the de Branges and Weinstein Functions and the Askey-Gasper Inequality

(2005)

The Bieberbach conjecture about the coefficients of univalent functions of the unit disk was formulated by Ludwig Bieberbach in 1916 [Bieberbach1916]. The conjecture states that the coefficients of univalent functions are majorized by those of the Koebe function which maps the unit disk onto a radially slit plane. The Bieberbach conjecture was quite a difficult problem, and it was surprisingly proved by Louis de Branges in 1984 [deBranges1985] when some experts were rather trying to disprove it. It turned out that ...
