    • C^k Conjugacy of 1-D Diffeomorphisms with Periodic Points 

      Young, Todd R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-06-05)
      It is shown that the set of heteroclinic orbits between two periodic orbits of saddle-node type induces a functional modulus. For one-dimensional C^2 diffeomorphisms with saddle-node periodic points, two such diffeomorphisms ...

    • Center Manifolds for Invariant Manifolds 

      Chow, Shui-Nee; Liu, Weishi; Yi, Yingfei (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Mathematical Society, 1997)
      We study dynamics of flows generated from smooth vector fields in R^n in the vicinity of an invariant and closed smooth manifold Y. By applying the Hadamard graph transform technique, we show that there exists an invariant ...

      Chow, Shui-Nee; Liu, Weishi; Yi, Yingfei (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999)
      We derive a general center manifolds theory for a class of compact invariant sets of flows generated by a smooth vector fields in R^n. By applying the Hadamard graph transform technique, it is shown that, associated to ...

      Liu, Yingjie; Shu, Chi-Wang; Tadmor, Eitan; Zhang, Mengping (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-08-28)
      The central scheme of Nessyahu and Tadmor [J. Comput. Phys, 87 (1990)] solves hyperbolic conservation laws on a staggered mesh and avoids solving Riemann problems across cell boundaries. To overcome the difficulty of ...
    • Central Schemes and Central Discontinuous Galerkin Methods on Overlapping Cells 

      Liu, Yingjie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005)
      The central scheme of Nessyahu and Tadmor (J. Comput. Phys, 87(1990)) has the bene t of not having to deal with the solution within the Riemann fan for solving hyperbolic conservation laws and related equations. But the ...
    • Central Schemes on Overlapping Cells 

      Liu, Yingjie (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004)
      Nessyahu and Tadmor's central scheme (J. Comput. Phys, 87(1990)) has the benefi t of not using Riemann solvers or characteristic decomposition for solving hyperbolic conservation laws and related convection diffusion ...
    • A Characterization of Gaussian Measures via the Isoperimetric Property of Half-Spaces 

      Bobkov, S. G.; Houdré, Christian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-07-25)
      If the half-spaces of the form {x\in R^n: x_1 \le c} are extremal in the isoperimetric problem for the product measure \mu^n, n\ge 2, then \mu is Gaussian.

      Harrell, Evans M., II; Michel, Patricia L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994-03)
    • Commutator Bounds for Eigenvalues, with Applications to Spectral Geometry 

      Harrell, Evans M., II; Michel, Patricia L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994-03)
      We prove a purely algebraic version of an eigenvalue inequality of Hile and Protter, and derive corollaries bounding differences of eigenvalues of Laplace-Beltrami operators on manifolds. We significantly improve earlier ...
    • Complete Families of Pseudotrajectories and Shape of Attractors 

      Pilyugin, S. Yu. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)
      We study the behavior of families of δ-trajectories (pseudotrajectories) near an attractor of a finite-dimensional dynamical system. It is shown that for arbitrary dynamical system the boundary of any attractor can be ...
    • Construction of Orthogonal Wavelets Using Fractal Interpolation Functions 

      Donovan, George; Geronimo, Jeffrey Stephen; Hardin, Douglas P.; Massopust, Peter R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1993-10)
      Fractal interpolation functions are used to construct a compactly supported continuous, orthogonal wavelet basis spanning L^2(IR). The wavelets share many of the properties normally associated with spline wavelets in ...
    • Conventional Multipliers for Homoclinic Orbits 

      Afraimovich, Valentine; Liu, Weishi; Young, Todd R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-01-30)
      In this work we introduce and describe conventional multipliers, a new characteristic of homoclinic orbits of saddle-node type periodic trajectories. We prove existence and smooth dependence of conventional multipliers on ...
    • Convergence in Almost Periodic Fisher and Kolmogorov Models 

      Shen, Wenxian; Yi, Yingfei (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
      We study convergence of positive solutions for almost periodic reaction diffusion equations of Fisher or Kolmogorov type. It is proved that under suitable conditions every positive solution is asymptotically almost periodic. ...
    • Converse Poincaré Type Inequalities for Convex Functions 

      Bobkov, S. G.; Houdré, Christian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-12-07)
      Converse Poincaré type inequalities are obtained within the class of smooth convex functions. This is, in particular, applied to the double exponential distribution.
    • Counting Sets of Integers, No k of Which Sum to Another 

      Calkin, Neil J.; Taylor, Angela C. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1995-07)
      We show that for every k greater or equal than 3 the number of subsets of {1,2,...,n} containing no solution to x_1 + x_2 + ... + x_k = y, where the x_i need not be distinct, is at most c2^{\alpha n}, where \alpha = (k-1)/k.
