A duality theory for a class of fractional programs is developed. A fractionalprogram which is non-convex is convexified using a one-to-one transformation. The resulting convex equivalent is then dualized with generalized geometric programming duality.
This paper presents an efficient method for generating the class of all twelve-tone rows which are transpositions of their own retrograde-inversions. It is shown here that the members of this class can be obtained from a subclass of those rows whose first six notes are ascending and whose first note is C. The number of twelve-tone rows in this subclass is 192, and a complete listing is given in an appendix to this paper. The theory as developed here can be applied to tone rows having any even number of notes.
The paper analyes the dynamics of duopoly output game involving a warfare strategy proposed by Robert Bishop. Necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained for the stability of a duopoly warfare game.
The quesiton of the location of the eigenvalues of a linear operator is considered. In particular, a numerical technique is developed which can be used to demonstrate the absence of eigenvalues in certain segements of the real line.
Optimal strategies are obtained for two-player games with an alternating staek doubling option. A complete two-parameter analysis is provided for games that must end within two moves, and a recursive procedure then enables a solution for games of any number of moves. Examples are given of relevance to extureme end games in backgammon.
A Demianski-type metric investigated in connection with Einstein's field equations corresponding to pure radiation fields. With aid of complex vectorical formalism, a general solution of these fiel equations is obtained. The solution is algebraically spcial. A particular case of the solution is considered which includes many known solutions; among them are the raiationg versions of some of Kinnersley's solutions.
Generalizations of the Green-Lanford-Dollard theorem on scattering into cones and Ruelle-Amerin-Georgescu theorem characterizing bound states and scattering states are derived. The first is shown to be an easy consequence of the Kato-Trotter theorem on semi-group convergence whilst the latter is corollary of Wiener's version of the mean ergodic theorem.
It is shown that a problem which arose in the scheduling of two simultaneous competitions between a number of golf clubs may be reduced to that of 4- colouring the edges of a certain bipartite graph which has 4 edges meeting at each vertex. This colouring problem is solved by an analysis in terms of directed cycles, which is simple to carry through in a practical case and is easily extended to the problem with 4 replaced by 2m. The more general colouring problem with 4 replaced by any positive integer is solved by relating it to the marriage problem enunciated by Philip Hall and to the latin multiplication technique of Kaufmann but, in practical applications, this approach involves severe computational difficulties.
The aggregation-decomposition method is used to derive sufficient conditions for the uniform stability, uniform asymptotic stability and exponential stability of the null solution of large-scale systems described by functional differential equations with lags appearing only in the interconnections. The free subsystems are described by ordinary differential equations for which converse theorems involving Lyapunov functions exist and thus enable the sufficient conditions to be expressed in terms of Lyapunov functions rather than the more complicated Lyapunov functionals.
