A splitting method for the augmented Burgers equation
(20170701)In this paper we consider a splitting method for the augmented Burgers equation and prove that it is of ﬁrst order. We also analyze the largetime behavior of the approximated solution by obtaining the ﬁrst term in the ... 
A semidiscrete largetime behavior preserving scheme for the augmented Burgers equation
(20170601)In this paper we analyze the largetime behavior of the augmented Burgers equation. We first study the wellposedness of the Cauchy problem and obtain $L^1L^p$ decay rates. The asymptotic behavior of the solution is ... 
Spherically symmetric solutions to a model for phase transitions driven by configurational forces
(20111231)We prove the globalintime existence of spherically symmetric solutions to an initialboundary value problem for a system of partial differential equations, which consists of the equations of linear elasticity and a ... 
Approximation of Hölder continuous homeomorphisms by piecewise affine homeomorphisms
(20111231)This paper is concerned with the problem of approximating a homeomorphism by piecewise affine homeomorphisms. The main result is as follows: every homeomorphism from a planar domain with a polygonal boundary to ℝ2 that is ... 
A splitting method for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation
(20111231)We introduce a splitting method for the semilinear Schrödinger equation and prove its convergence for those nonlinearities which can be handled by the classical wellposedness L2(Rd)theory. More precisely, we prove that ... 
Dispersive Properties for Discrete Schrödinger Equations
(20111231)In this paper we prove dispersive estimates for the system formed by two coupled discrete Schrödinger equations. We obtain estimates for the resolvent of the discrete operator and prove that it satisfies the limiting ... 
Solvability via viscosity solutions for a model of phase transitions driven by configurational forces
(20111231)This article is concerned with an initialboundary value problem for an ellipticparabolic coupled system arising in martensitic phase transition theory of elastically deformable solid materials, e.g., steel. This model ... 
The asymptotic behaviour of the heat equation in a twisted DirichletNeumann waveguide
(20111231)We consider the heat equation in a straight strip, subject to a combination of Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions. We show that a switch of the respective boundary conditions leads to an improvement of the decay ... 
Interface motion by interface diffusion driven by bulk energy: Justification of a diffusive interface model
(20111231)We construct an asymptotic solution of a system consisting of the partial differential equations of linear elasticity theory coupled with a degenerate parabolic equation, and show that when a regularity parameter tends to ... 
Homogenization of the Neumann problem in perforated domains: An alternative approach
(20111231)The main result of this paper is a compactness theorem for families of functions in the space SBV (Special functions of Bounded Variation) defined on periodically perforated domains. Given an open and bounded set Ω n, and ... 
Stationary policies for the second moment stability in a class of stochastic systems
(20111231)This paper presents a study on the uniform second moment stability for a class of stochastic control system. The main result states that the existence of the longrun average cost under a stationary policy is equivalent ... 
A kinetic scheme for transient mixed flows in non uniform closed pipes: A global manner to upwind all the source terms
(20111231)We present a numerical kinetic scheme for an unsteady mixed pressurized and free surface model. This model has a source term depending on both the space variable and the unknown U of the system. Using the Finite Volume and ... 
Nematic elastomers: Gammalimits for large bodies and small particles

Traveling waves to models of solidsolid phase transitions driven by configurational forces
(20111231)We study the existence of traveling/standing waves to models based on configurational forces. These models describe, respectively, structural phase transitions in solids, e.g., Shape memory alloys, and phase transitions ...
