We show that if the gradient and Hessian of the objective function are Lipschitz continuous, then the method has a global convergence property. Under the local error bound condition which is weaker than nonsingularity, the method has cubic convergence.2015-03-22T03:07:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/46644The Distribution of Zeros of Quadratic Forms over Finite Fields2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Ali H. Hakamiaalhakami@jazanu.edu.saLet $m$ be a positive integer with $m < p/2$ and $p$ is a prime. Let $\mathbb{F}_q$ be the finite field in $q = p^f$ elements, $Q({\mathbf{x}})$ be a nonsinqular quadratic form over $\mathbb{F}_q$ with $q$ odd, $V$ be the set of points in $\mathbb{F}_q^n$ satisfying the equation $Q({\mathbf{x}}) = 0$ in which the variables are restricted to a box of points of the type\[\mathcal{B}(m) = \left\{ {{\mathbf{x}} \in \mathbb{F}_q^n \left| {x_i = \sum\limits_{j = 1}^f {x_{ij} \xi _j } ,\;\left| {x_{ij} } \right| < m,\;1 \leqslant i \leqslant n,\;1 \leqslant j \leqslant f} \right.} \right\},\]where $\xi _1 , \ldots ,\xi _f$ is a basis for $\mathbb{F}_q$ over $\mathbb{F}_p$ and $n > 2$ even. Set $\Delta = \det Q$ such that $\chi \left( {( - 1)^{n/2} \Delta } \right) = 1.$ We shall motivate work of (Cochrane, 1986) to obtain lower bounds on $m,$ size of the box $\mathcal{B},$ so that $\mathcal{B} \cap V$ is nonempty. For this we show that the box $\mathcal{B}(m)$ contains a zero of $Q({\mathbf{x}})$ provided that $m \geqslant p^{1/2}.$ We also show that the box $\mathcal{B}(m)$ contains $n$ linearly independent zeros of $Q({\mathbf{x}})$ provided that $m \geqslant 2^{n/2} p^{1/2} .$2015-03-22T00:00:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/46646Soliton Solutions of a General Rosenau-Kawahara-RLW Equation2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Jin-ming Zuozuojinming@sdut.edu.cnIn this paper, we consider a general Rosenau-Kawahara-RLW equation.

In each iteration, the subproblemsare convex quadratic minimization problem with simple constraintsand a well-conditioned system of nonlinear equations that can be efficiently solvedusing classical methods. Researchers have recently described the convergence rateof projection and contraction methods for variational inequality problems andthe original ADM and its linearized variant. Motivated and inspired by researchinto the convergence rate of these methods, we provide a simple proof to show the $O(1/k)$ convergencerate of alternating directions methods for structured monotone variational inequality problems (He, 2001).2015-03-27T00:00:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/45054On Co-screen Conformality of 1-lightlike Submanifolds in a Lorentzian Manifold2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Erol Kilicmehmetgulbahar85@gmail.comSadik Kelesmehmetgulbahar85@gmail.comMehmet Gulbaharmehmetgulbahar85@gmail.comIn this paper, the co-screen conformal 1-lightlike submanifolds of a Lorentzian manifoldare introduced as a generalization of co-screen locally half-lightlike submanifolds in(Wang, Wang {\&} Liu, 2013; Wang {\&} Liu, 2013) and two examples are given whichone is co-screen locally conformal andthe other is not.

In this article, we try to get some insights into basic behavior of the propensity scores in a probabilistic sense. We do a simple analysis of their usage confining to the case of discrete confounding covariates and outcomes. While making clear about behavior of the propensity score our analysis shows how the so-called prognostic score can be derived simultaneously. However the prognostic score is derived in a limited sense in the current literature whereas our derivation is more general and shows all possibilities of having the score. And we call it outcome score. We argue that application of both the propensity score and the outcome score is the most efficient way for reduction of dimension in the confounding covariates as opposed to current belief that the propensity score alone is the most efficient way.2015-04-07T00:00:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/47290On Solvability of an Inverse Boundary Value Problem for Pseudo Hyperbolic Equation of the Fourth Order2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Yashar T. Mehraliyevyashar_aze@mail.ruAfaq F. Huseynovayashar_aze@mail.ruWe analyze the solvability of the inverse boundary problem with an unknown coefficient depended on time for the pseudo hyperbolic equation of fourth order with periodic and integral conditions.The initial problem is reduced to an equivalent problem. With the help of the Fourier method, the equivalent problem is reduced to a system of integral equations. The existence and uniqueness of the solution of the integral equations is proved. The obtained solution of the integral equations is also the only solution to the equivalent problem. Basing on the equivalence of the problems, the theorem of the existence and uniqueness of the classical solutions of the original problem is proved.2015-04-07T00:00:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/45564A Spline Group – Korovkin Approximation Theorem2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Malik Saad Al-Muhjamalik@mu.edu.iqIn this paper, using homogeneous groups, we prove a Korovkin type approximation theorem for a spline groupby using the notion of a generalization of positive linear operator.2015-04-07T18:21:26-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/46264On the Irreducibility of Artin's Group of Graphs2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Malak M.

Abrarovabrarov@yorku.caBrendan M. Quinebquine@yorku.caWe present a rational approximation for rapid and accurate computation of the Voigt function, obtained by sampling and residue calculus. The computational test reveals that with only $16$ summation terms this approximation provides average accuracy ${10^{ - 14}}$ over a wide domain of practical interest $0 < x < 40,000$ and ${10^{ - 4}} < y < {10^2}$ for applications using the HITRAN molecular spectroscopic database. The proposed rational approximation takes less than half the computation time of that required by Weideman\text{'}s rational approximation. Algorithmic stability is achieved due to absence of the poles at $y \geqslant 0$ and $ - \infty < x < \infty $.2015-05-11T00:00:00-07:00http://www.ccsenet.org/journal/index.php/jmr/article/view/48832A Shifted Power Method for Homogenous Polynomial Optimization over Unit Spheres2015-05-22T20:46:00-07:00Shuquan Wangmsshuquan@163.comIn this paper, we propose a shifted power method for a type of polynomial optimization problem over unit spheres.
