Parallel SpeedUp of Monte Carlo Methods for Global Optimization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 199008)We introduce the notion of expected hitting time to a goal as a measure of the con vergence rate of a Monte Carlo optimization method. The techniques developed apply to Simulated Annealing, Genetic Algorithms and other ... 
Construction of Orthogonal Wavelets Using Fractal Interpolation Functions
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 199310)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 ... 
Wave Train of Monotone Travelling Waves for Generic CompetitionDiffusion Systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)In this paper, we consider monotone travelling waves for the generic competitiondiffusion system which satisfies the following property: The system has a finite number of equilibrium points in the first quadrant, and each ...

Dynamics in a Discrete Nagumo Equation  Spatial Topological Chaos
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)In this paper we show the existence of spatial topological chaos in a discrete Nagumo equation, and discuss the similarities and differences between the discrete Nagumao equation and the continuous one. 
Stability and Bifurcation of Traveling Wave Solutions in Coupled Map Lattices
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)A class of coupled map lattices are considered. For each such coupled map lattice, the stability and bifurcation of its traveling wave solutions are studied. A stability criteria is given. It is shown that bifurcation ... 
SlowlyMigrating Transition Layers for the Discrete AllenCahn and CahnHilliard Equations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)It has recently been proposed that spatially discretized versions of the AllenCahn and CahnHilliard equations for modeling phase transitions have certain theoretical and phenomenological advantages over their continuous ... 
Instability of Stationary Solutions for LotkaVolterra Competition Model with Diffusion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)We consider the LotkaVolterra competition model with diffusion on R, and study the stability of axial symmetric positive stationary solutions relative to the space X of bounded uniformly continuous functions with the ... 
Complete Families of Pseudotrajectories and Shape of Attractors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)We study the behavior of families of δtrajectories (pseudotrajectories) near an attractor of a finitedimensional dynamical system. It is shown that for arbitrary dynamical system the boundary of any attractor can be ... 
Uniform Ultimate Boundedness and Synchronization for Nonautonomous Equations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)In this work we present some mathematical methods for the study of synchronization of two similar nonautonomous systems of differential equations. We give sufficient conditions to control the coupling devices in order to ... 
Least Energy Solutions of Semilinear Neumann Problems and Asymptotics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1994)The asymptotic behavior of the least energy solutions of the semilinear Neumann problems involving critical Sobolev exponent on a bounded domain in R^4 is studied. The effect of the geometry of the boundary and the critical ... 
Proof and Generalization of KaplanYorke's Conjecture on Periodic Solution of Differential Delay Equations
