On convexity and solution concepts in cooperative interval gamesNov 09 2018Cooperative interval game is a cooperative game in which every coalition gets assigned some closed real interval. This models uncertainty about how much the members of a coalition get for cooperating together. In this paper we study convexity, core and ... More

Jacob's ladders and new synergetic formula generating infinite set of $ζ$-cooperative three-parametric invariantsOct 03 2018In this paper we obtain new $\zeta$-synergetic formula namely an exact secondary complete hybrid formula. This one is generated by some set of trigonometric and power functions together with the square of module of the Riemann's zeta-function on the critical ... More

Jacob's ladders and grafting of the complete hybrid formulas into $ζ$-synergetic meta-functional equation for Riemann's zeta-functionSep 14 2018In this paper we prove that there is a grafting of complete hybrid formula on meta-functional equation. This synergetic formula gives the result of a $\zeta$-chemical reaction between different sets of values of Riemann's zeta-function on the critical ... More

Group-theoretical origin of symmetries of hypergeometric class equations and functionsJun 08 2019We show that properties of hypergeometric class equations and functions become transparent if we derive them from appropriate 2nd order differential equations with constant coefficients. More precisely, properties of the hypergeometric and Gegenbauer ... More
