Point island dynamics under fixed rate depositionFeb 15 2018Dec 12 2018In this paper we consider the dynamics of point islands during submonolayer deposition, in which the fragmentation of subcritical size islands is allowed. To understand asymptotics of solutions, we use methods of centre manifold theory, and for globalisation, ... More

On a generalized theorem of de Bruijn and Erdös in d-dimensional Fuzzy Linear SpacesFeb 13 2018In this study we follow a new framework for the theory that offers us, other than traditional, a new angle to observe and investigate some relations between finite sets, F-lattice L and their elements. The theory is based on the Fuzzy Linear Spaces (FLS) ... More

Minimal asymptotic translation lengths of Torelli groups and pure braid groups on the curve graphFeb 13 2018Nov 01 2018In this paper, we show that the minimal asymptotic translation length of the Torelli group $\mathcal{I}_g$ of the surface $S_g$ of genus $g$ on the curve graph asymptotically behaves like $1/g$, contrary to the mapping class group $Mod(S_g)$, which behaves ...

Ball Prolate Spheroidal Wave Functions In Arbitrary DimensionsFeb 11 2018In this paper, we introduce the prolate spheroidal wave functions (PSWFs) of real order $\alpha>-1$ on the unit ball in arbitrary dimension, termed as ball PSWFs. They are eigenfunctions of both a weighted concentration integral operator, and a Sturm-Liouville ... More

On closed finite gap curves in spaceforms IJan 22 2018Jun 12 2019We show that the spaces of closed finite gap curves in $R^3$ and $S^3$ are dense with respect to the Sobolev $W^{1,2}$-norm in the spaces of closed curves in $R^3$ respectively $S^3$.
