Diffusion Approximations for Double-ended Queues with Reneging in Heavy TrafficJul 06 2016Jul 15 2016We study a double-ended queue which consists of two classes of customers. Whenever there is a pair of customers from both classes, they are matched and leave the system immediately. The matching follows first-come-first-serve principle. If a customer ... More

On W_2 lifting of Frobenius of Algebraic SurfacesSep 03 2013We completely decide which minimal algebraic surfaces in positive characteristics allow a lifting of their Frobenius over the trucated witt rings of lengh 2.

On Zeilberger's Constant Term for Andrews' TSSCPP TheoremJun 24 2011This paper studies Zeilberger's two prized constant term identities. For one of the identities, Zeilberger asked for a simple proof that may give rise to a simple proof of Andrews theorem for the number of totally symmetric self complementary plane partitions. ...

Ring C*-algebrasMay 29 2009We associate reduced and full C*-algebras to arbitrary rings and study the inner structure of these ring C*-algebras. As a result, we obtain conditions for them to be purely infinite and simple. We also discuss several examples. Originially, our motivation ... More

Singularity formation to the Cauchy problem of the two-dimensional non-baratropic magnetohydrodynamic equations without heat conductivityJan 28 2018We study the breakdown of strong solutions to the two-dimensional (2D) Cauchy problem of the non-baratropic compressible magnetohydrodynamic equations without heat conductivity. It is proved that the strong solution exists globally if the gradient of ... More
