The results obtained are used for the construction of the exact ... More

Nonstandard Tools for Nonsmooth AnalysisJun 11 2012This is an overview of the basic tools of nonsmooth analysis which are grounded on nonstandard models of set theory. By way of illustration we give a criterion for an infinitesimally optimal path of a general discrete dynamic system.

Ghost-Stochastic Resonance in a Unidirectionally Coupled and Small-World NetworksOct 27 2015Ghost-stochastic resonance is a noise-induced resonance at a missing fundamental frequency in the input signal. In this paper we investigate the features of ghost-stochastic resonance in a unidirectionally coupled network and small-world network with ... More
