Existence of Approximate Solution to Abstract Nonlocal Cauchy Problem
(1992)The aim of the paper is to prove a theorem about the existence of an approximate solution to an abstract nonlinear nonlocal Cauchy problem in a Banach space. The righthand side of the nonlocal condition belongs to a locally ... 
Lyapunov Stability Theory for Dynamic Systems on Time Scales
(1992)By use of the necessary calculus and the fundamental existence theory for dynamic systems on time scales, in this paper, we develop Lyapunov’s second method in the framework of general comparison principle so that one can ... 
On Modulated Random Measures
(1991)In this paper the author introduces the notion of a modulated marked random measure, Zξ on the class of locally compact and σcompact spaces with countable bases. As special cases, are marked processes modulated by ξ are ... 
Monotone iterations for differential equations with a parameter
(1997)Consider the problem {y′(t)=f(t,y(t),λ),t∈J=[0,b],y(0)=k0,G(y,λ)=0. Employing the method of upper and lower solutions and the monotone iterative technique, existence of extremal solutions for the above equation are proved.

(1992)The authors introduce and study a class of bulk queueing systems with a compound Poisson input modulated by a semiMarkov process, multilevel control service time and a queue length dependent service delay discipline. ... 
Extremal Solutions to a Class of Multivalued Integral Equations in Banach Space
(1992)We consider a nonlinear Volterra integral inclusion in a Banach space. We establish the existence of extremal integral solutions, and we show that they are dense in the solution set of the original equation. As an important ... 
Generalized Two Point Boundary Value Problems. Existence and Uniqueness
(1992)An algorithm is presented for finding the pseudoinverse of a rectangular matrix. Using this algorithm as a tool, existence and uniqueness of solutions to two point boundary value problems associated with general first ...

A First Passage Problem and its Applications to the Analysis of a Class of Stochastic Models
(1992)A problem of the first passage of a cumulative random process with generally distributed discrete or continuous increments over a fixed level is considered in the article as an essential part of the analysis of a class of ... 
Nuclearmodification factor for openheavyflavor production at forward rapidity in Cu+Cu collisions at √sNN=200 GeV
(20120820)Background: Heavyflavor production in p + p collisions is a good test of perturbativequantumchromodynamics (pQCD) calculations. Modification of heavyflavor production in heavyion collisions relative to binarycollision ...

(20131220)The azimuthal anisotropy coefficients v₂ and v₄ of π⁰ and η mesons are measured in Au + Au collisions at √sNN=200 GeV as a function of transverse momentum pT (114 GeV/c) and centrality. The extracted v₂ coefficients are ...

(20050302)This paper presents new existence results for the singular discrete boundary value problem  Δ²u(k  1) = g(k, u(k)) + λh(k,u(k)), k ∈ [1,T], u(0) = 0 = u(T + 1). In particular, our nonlinearity may be singular in its ...

Error Bounds for Two Even Degree Tridiagonal Splines
(1990)We study a C(¹) parabolic and a C(²) quartic spline which are determined by solution of a tridiagonal matrix and which interpolate subinterval midpoints. In contrast to the cubic C(²) spline, both of these algorithms ... 
Strong Maximum Principles for Parabolic Nonlinear Problems With Nonlocal Inequalities Together With Integrals
