Global Dissipative Solutions of the Generalized Camassa-Holm Equation

Octavian G. Mustafa
Pages: 96 - 115
A new approach to the analysis of wave-breaking solutions to the generalized Camassa-Holm equation is presented in this paper. Introduction of a set of variables allows for solving the singularities. A continuous semigroup of dissipative solutions is also built. The solutions have non-increasing H1 energy...

On a canonical nine-body problem. Integrable Ermakov decomposition via reciprocal transformations

Colin Rogers
Pages: 98 - 106
Here, a recently introduced nine-body problem is shown to be decomposable via a novel class of reciprocal transformations into a set of integrable Ermakov systems. This Ermakov decomposition is exploited to construct more general integrable nine-body systems in which the canonical nine-body system is...

Steady Internal Water Waves with a Critical Layer Bounded by the Wave Surface

Anca-Voichita Matioc
Pages: 98 - 118
In this paper we construct small amplitude periodic internal waves traveling at the boundary region between two rotational and homogeneous fluids with different densities. Within a period, the waves we obtain have the property that the gradient of the stream function associated to the fluid beneath the...

Hamiltonian Structure and Linear Stability of Solitary Waves of the Green-Naghdi Equations

Yi A. Li
Pages: 99 - 105
We investigate linear stability of solitary waves of a Hamiltonian system. Unlike weakly nonlinear water wave models, the physical system considered here is nonlinearly dispersive, and contains nonlinearity in its highest derivative term. This results in more detailed asymptotic analysis of the eigenvalue...

Periodic Motions Galore: How to Modify Nonlinear Evolution Equations so that They Feature a Lot of Periodic Solutions

F. Calogero, J-P Françoise
Pages: 99 - 125
A simple trick is illustrated, whereby nonlinear evolution equations can be modified so that they feature a lot ­ or, in some cases, only ­ periodic solutions. Several examples (ODEs and PDEs) are exhibited.

Dynamical Correlation Functions for an Impenetrable Bose Gas with Neumann or Dirichlet Boundary Conditions

Takeo Kojima
Pages: 99 - 119
We study the time and temperature dependent correlation functions for an impenetrable Bose gas with Neumann or Dirichlet boundary conditions (x1, 0) (x2, t) ±,T . We derive the Fredholm determinant formulae for the correlation functions, by means of the Bethe Ansatz. For the special case x1 = 0, we express...

Brownian Motion on a Smash Line

Demosthenes Ellinas, Ioannis Tsohantjis
Pages: 100 - 105
Brownian motion on a smash line algebra (a smash or braided version of the algebra resulting by tensoring the real line and the generalized paragrassmann line algebras), is constructed by means of its Hopf algebraic structure. Further, statistical moments, non stationary generalizations and its diffusion...

The space of initial conditions and the property of an almost good reduction in discrete Painlevé II equations over finite fields

Masataka Kanki, Jun Mada, Tetsuji Tokihiro
Pages: 101 - 109
We investigate the discrete Painlevé equations (dPII and qPII) over finite fields. We first show that they are well defined by extending the domain according to the theory of the space of initial conditions. Then we treat them over local fields and observe that they have a property that is similar to...

Total Differentiation Under Jet Composition

Maido Rahula, Vitali Retsnoi
Pages: 102 - 109
Total differentiation operators as linear vector fields, their flows, invariants and symmetries form the geometry of jet space. In the jet space the dragging of tensor fields obeys the exponential law. The composition of smooth maps induces a composition of jets in corresponding jet spaces. The prolonged...

Approximate Waiting-Time for a Thin Liquid Drop Spreading under Gravity

E. Momoniat
Pages: 102 - 109
The method of multiple scales is used to introduce a small-time scale into the nolinear diffusion equation modelling the spreading of a thin liquid drop under gravity. The Lie group method is used to analyse the resulting system. An approximate group invariant solution and an approximation to the waiting-time...

Graph Expansions and Graphical Enumeration Applied to Semiclassical Propagator Expansions

S.A. Fulling
Pages: 102 - 110
In recent years T.A. Osborn and his coworkers at the University of Manitoba have extensively developed the well known connected graph expansion and applied it to a wide variety of problems in semiclassical approximation to quantum dynamics [2, 5, 7, 19, 21, 22, 26, 27]. The work I am reporting on attempts...

Pages: 102 - 111
In this work we discuss the complete synchronization of two identical double-well Duffing oscillators unidirectionally coupled, from the point of view of symbolic dynamics. Working with Poincaré cross-sections and the return maps associated, the synchronization of the two oscillators, in terms of the...
