Let C denote the class of all near-rings which have the property that the subnear-ring of constants forms an ideal. Prominent examples are abstract affine near-rings and a generalisation of these by Feigelstock . In this note we show C forms a variety and construct a proper sub-class such that every N ε C can be embedded into some . It turns out that near-rings have an ideal structure which is similar to the ideal structure of abstract affine near-rings, in contrast to the situation for arbitrary elements of C.
Using a weighted Poincaré inequality, we study (ω1,…,ωn)-elliptic operators. This method is applied to solve singular elliptic equations with boundary conditions in W1,2. We also obtain a result about the regularity of solutions of singular elliptic equations. An application to (ω1,…,ωn)-parabolic equations is given.
In some situations weak convergence in L1, implies strong convergence. Let P, L: T → C∘(ℝd) be measurable multifunctions (C∘(ℝd) being the set of closed, convex subsets of ℝd) the values L(t) affine sets and W(t) = P(t) ∩ L(t) extremal faces of P(t). Let pk be integrable selections of P, the projection of pk,(t) on L(t) and pk(t) on W(t). We prove that if converges weakly to zero then pk − k converges to zero in measure. We give also some extensions of this theorem. As applications to differential inclusions we investigate convergence of derivatives of convergent sequences of solutions and we describe solutions which are in some sense isolated. Finally we discuss what can be said about control functions u when the corresponding trajectories of ẋ = f(t, x, u) are convergent to some trajectory.
The weak global dimension of a right coherent ring with left Krull dimension α ≥ 1 is found to be the supremum of the weak dimensions of the β-critical cyclic modules, where β < α. If, in addition, the mapping I → assl gives a bijection between isomorphism classes on injective left R-modules and prime ideals of R, then the weak global dimension of R is the supremum of the weak dimensions of the simple left R-modules. These results are used to compute the left homological dimension of a right coherent, left noetherian ring. Some analogues of our results are also given for rings with Gabriel dimension.
Given a closed and convex set K in Rn and two continuous maps F: K → Rn and η: K × K → Rn, the problem considered here is to find ε K such that
We call it a variational-like inequality problem, and develop a theory for the existence of a solution. We also show the relationship between the variational-like inequality problem and some mathematical programming problems.
We investigate the circumstances under which the distance function to a closed set in a Banach space having a one-sided directional derivative equal to 1 or −1 implies the existence of nearest points. In reflexive spaces we show that at a dense set of points outside a closed set the distance function has a directional derivative equal to 1.
In this paper we prove the existence of an optimal admissible state-control pair for a nonlinear distributed parameter system, with control constraints of feedback type and with an integral cost criterion. An example is also worked in detail.
Let G be a finite group and let k be a field. We determine the smallest possible rank of a free kG-module that contains submodules of every possible dimension. As an application, we obtain various criteria for the wreath product of two finite groups to be a CLT-group.
Let I denote a compact real interval and let f ∈ C0(I, I). In this note we show that if f chaotic in the sense of Li and Yorke, then there is an uncountable perfect δ-scrambled set S for f in the recurrent set of f. Furthermore, the ω-limit set of every x ∈ S under f contains S and contains infinitely many periodic points of f with arbitrarily large periods.
In this paper varieties are investigated which are generated by graph algebras of undirected graphs and—in most cases—contain Murskii's groupoid (that is the graph algebra of the graph with two adjacent vertices and one loop). Though these varieties are inherently nonfinitely based, they can be finitely based as graph varieties (finitely graph based) like, for example, the varitey generated by Murskii's groupoid. Many examples of nonfinitely based graph varities containing Murskii's groupoid are given, too. Moreover, the coatoms in the subvariety lattice of the graph variety of all undirected graphs are described. There are two coatoms and they are finitely graph based.
By considering the concept of weak minima, different scalar duality results are extended to multiple objective programming problems. A number of weak, strong and converse duality theorems are given under a variety of generalised convexity conditions.
With a view to further applications, we give a self-contained account of indexed limits for 2-categories, including necessary and sufficient conditions for 2-categorical completeness. Many important 2-categories fail to be complete but do admit a wide class of limits. Accordingly, we introduce a variety of particular 2-categorical limits of practical importance, and show that certain of these suffice for the existence of indexed lax- and pseudo-limits. Other important 2-categories fail to admit even pseudo-limits, but do admit the weaker bilimits; we end by discussing these.
