Isotropic covariance matrix polynomials on spheres
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)This article characterizes the covariance matrix function of a Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on the sphere. By applying the characterization ... 
Stochastic representations of isotropic vector random fields on spheres
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)A stochastic representation is derived for a vector random field that is stationary, isotropic, and mean square continuous on a sphere or unit circle. The established stochastic representation is an infinite series involving ... 
Nilsolitons of Htype in the Lorentzian setting
(Houston Journal of Mathematics, 2015)It is known that all leftinvariant pseudoRiemannian metrics on the threedimensional Heisenberg group H3 are algebraic Ricci solitons. We consider generalizations of Riemannian Htype, namely pseudoHtype and pHtype. ... 
On the relationship of continuity and boundary regularity in prescribed mean curvature dirichlet problems
(Pacific Journal of Mathematics, 20160303)In 1976, Leon Simon showed that if a compact subset of the boundary of a domain is smooth and has negative mean curvature, then the nonparametric least area problem with Lipschitz continuous Dirichlet boundary data has a ... 
Hybrid basis scheme for computing electrostatic fields exterior to closetotouching discs
(Oxford University Press, 201604)This paper presents a simple and effective new numerical scheme for the computation of electrostatic fields exterior to a collection of closetotouching discs. The method is presented in detail for the twodisc case. The ... 
Protostellar collapse using multigroup radiation hydrodynamics
(Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2015)Many simulations of protostellar collapse make use of a grey treatment of radiative transfer coupled to the hydrodynamics. However, interstellar gas and dust opacities present large variations as a function of frequency. ... 
Increasing stability for the conductivity and attenuation coefficients
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2016)In this work we consider stability of recovery of the conductivity and attenuation coefficients of the stationary Maxwell and Schrodinger equations from a complete set of (Cauchy) boundary data. By using complex geometrical ... 
On an ad hoc test for order restricted multivariate normal means
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)For several normal mean vectors restricted by a simple ordering with respect to a multivariate order, this article derives sufficient and necessary conditions for the restricted MLEs for both mean vectors and covariance ... 
Increasing stability in the inverse source problem with many frequencies
(Elsevier B.V., 20160305)We study increasing stability in the interior inverse source problem for the Helmholtz equation from boundary Cauchy data for multiple wave numbers. By using the Fourier transform with respect to the wave number, explicit ... 
Consistent estimation of survival functions under uniform stochastic ordering; the ksample case
(Elsevier B.V., 201602)Let S1, S2, ... , Sk be survival functions of life distributions. They are said to be uniformly stochastically ordered, S1 <=(uso) S2 <=(uso) ... <=(uso) Sk, if Si/Si+1 is a survival function for 1 <= i <= k  1. ... 
KahlerEinstein metrics with edge singularities
(Princeton University, 201601)This article considers the existence and regularity of Kahler Einstein metrics on a compact Kahler manifold M with edge singularities with cone angle 2 pi beta along a smooth divisor D. We prove existence of such metrics ... 
A new test for new better than used in expectation lifetimes
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2015)The mean residual life of a non negative random variable X with a finite mean is defined by M(t) = E[X  t  X > t] for t >= 0. A popular nonparametric model of aging is new better than used in expectation (NBUE), when ... 
Regularization via Cheeger deformations
(Springer Netherlands, 201512)We show that Cheeger deformations regularize Ginvariant metrics in a very strong sense. 
Increasing stability for near field from the scattering amplitude
(American Mathematical Society, 2015)We obtain stability estimates for the near field of a radiating solution of the Helmholtz equation from the far field (scattering amplitude). This estimates contain the best possible Lipschitz term, a Holder term, and terms ... 
How to lift positive Ricci curvature
(Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 20150521)We show how to lift positive Ricci and almost nonnegative curvatures from an orbit space M / G to the corresponding Gmanifold, M. We apply the results to get new examples of Riemannian manifolds that satisfy both curvature ... 
Isotropic covariance matrix functions on all spheres
(Springer International Publishing AG, 201508)This paper reviews and introduces characterizations of the covariance function on all spheres that is isotropic and continuous, and characterizations of the covariance matrix function on all spheres whose entries are ... 
Multifractional vector Brownian motions, their decompositions, and generalizations
(Taylor & Francis Group, 20150504)This article introduces three types of covariance matrix structures for Gaussian or elliptically contoured vector random fields in space and/or time, which include fractional, bifractional, and trifractional vector Brownian ... 
Logistic vector random fields with logistic direct and cross covariances
(Elsevier B.V., 201506)The logistic vector random field is introduced in this paper as a scale mixture of Gaussian vector random fields, and is thus a particular elliptically contoured (spherically invariant) vector random field. Such a logistic ... 
Increasing stability for the inverse problem of the Schrodinger equation with the partial Cauchy data
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 201505)To show increasing stability in the problem of recovering potential c is an element of C1 (Omega) in the Schrodinger equation with the given partial Cauchy data when energy frequency k is growing, we will obtain some ... 
Zeta function of selfadjoint operators on surfaces of revolution
(IOP Publishing, 20150410)In this article we analyze the zeta function for the Laplace operator on a surface of revolution. A variety of boundary conditions, separated and unseparated, are considered. Formulas for several residues and values of the ...
