  • Graph of Linear Transformations Over R 

    Badawi, Ayman; El-Ashi, Yasmine Ahmed (Springer, 2022-12-01)
    In this paper, we study a connection between graph theory and linear transformations of finite dimensional vector spaces over R (the set of all real numbers). Let Rm, Rn be finite vector spaces over R, and let L be the set ...
  • Maximum principles and overdetermined problems for Hessian equations 

    Enache, Cristian; Marras, Monica; Porru, Giovanni (ISTE Group, 2021)
    In this article we investigate some Hessian type equations. Our main aim is to derive new maximum principles for some suitable P-functions, in the sense of L.E. Payne, that is for some appropriate functional combinations ...
  • Fractional Integrodifferentiation and Toeplitz Operators with Vertical Symbols 

    Karapetyants, Alexey; Louhichi, Issam (Birkhäuser, 2020)
    We consider the so-called vertical Toeplitz operators on the weighted Bergman space over the half plane. The terminology “vertical” is motivated by the fact that if a is a symbol of such Toeplitz operator, then a(z) depends ...
  • On the powers of quasihomogeneous Toeplitz operators 

    Aissa, Bouhali; Zohra, Bendaoud; Louhichi, Issam (Springer, 2021)
    In this article, a fixed point iterative scheme involving Green's function is applied to reach a solution for the buckling of nano-actuators under nonlinear forces. Our solution is convergent. The nano-actuators problem ...

    Yousef, Abdelrahman; Khoury, Suheil; Louhichi, Issam (Springer, 2022)
    In this article, a fixed point iterative scheme involving Green's function is applied to reach a solution for the buckling of nano-actuators under nonlinear forces. Our solution is convergent. The nano-actuators problem ...
  • On 1-absorbing primary ideals of commutative rings 

    Badawi, Ayman; Celikel, Ece Yetkin (World Scientific, 2019-04-30)
    Let R be a commutative ring with nonzero identity. In this paper, we introduce the concept of 1-absorbing primary ideals in commutative rings. A proper ideal I of R is called a 1-absorbing primary ideal of R if whenever ...

    Badawi, Ayman; Celikel, Ece Yetkin (World Scientific, 2022)
    Let R be a commutative ring with 1 ≠ 0. In this paper, we introduce the concept of weakly 1-absorbing primary ideal which is a generalization of 1-absorbing primary ideal. A proper ideal I of R is called a weakly 1-absorbing ...

  • The n-zero-divisor graph of a commutative semigroup 

    Anderson, David F.; Badawi, Ayman (Taylor and Francis, 2022-04-16)
    Let S be a (multiplicative) commutative semigroup with 0, Z(S) the set of zero-divisors of S, and n a positive integer. The zero-divisor graph of S is the (simple) graph Γ(S) with vertices Z(S) ∗ = Z(S) \ {0}, and distinct ...
  • Assessing test suites of extended finite state machines against model and code based faults 

    El-Fakih, Khaled; Alzaatreh, Ayman; Turker, Uraz Cengiz (John Wiley & Sons, 2021)
    Tests can be derived from extended finite state machine (EFSM) specifications considering the coverage of single-transfer faults, all transitions using a transition tour, all-uses, edge-pair, and prime path with side trip. ...
  • Lower Semicontinuity in L¹ of a Class of Functionals Defined on BV with Caratheodory Integrands 

    Wunderli, Thomas (Hindawi Limited, 2021)
    We prove lower semicontinuity in 𝐿¹(Ω) for a class of functionals 𝒢 :𝐵𝑉(Ω) →ℝ of the form 𝒢(𝑢)=∫Ω𝑔(𝑥, 𝛻𝑢)𝑑𝑥 + ∫Ω𝜓(𝑥)𝑑|Dˢ𝑢| where 𝑔 :Ω⨉ℝᴺ→ℝ, Ω⊂ℝᴺ is open and bounded, 𝑔(.,𝑝) ∊ 𝐿¹(Ω) for each 𝑝 satisfies ...
  • The Kumaraswamy Pareto IV Distribution 

    Tahir, M. H.; Cordeiro, Gauss M.; Mansoor, M.; Zubair, M.; Alzaatreh, Ayman (Austrian Statistical Society, 2021)
    We introduce a new model named the Kumaraswamy Pareto IV distribution which extends the Pareto and Pareto IV distributions. The density function is very flexible and can be left-skewed, right-skewed and symmetrical shapes. ...
  • Using Fractional Bernoulli Wavelets for Solving Fractional Diffusion Wave Equations with Initial and Boundary Conditions

    Al-Sharawi, Ziyad; Pal, Nikhil; Chattopadhyay, Joydev (American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2022)
