This book features a collection of recent findings in Applied Real and Complex Analysis that were presented at the 3rd International Conference ´´Boundary Value Problems, Functional Equations and Applications´´ (BAF-3), held in Rzeszow, Poland on 20-23 April 2016. The contributions presented here develop a technique related to the scope of the workshop and touching on the fields of differential and functional equations, complex and real analysis, with a special emphasis on topics related to boundary value problems. Further, the papers discuss various applications of the technique, mainly in solid mechanics (crack propagation, conductivity of composite materials), biomechanics (viscoelastic behavior of the periodontal ligament, modeling of swarms) and fluid dynamics (Stokes and Brinkman type flows, Hele-Shaw type flows). The book is addressed to all readers who are interested in the development and application of innovative research results that can help solve theoretical and real-world problems.
The research and review papers presented in this volume provide an overview of the main issues, findings, and open questions in cutting-edge research on the fields of modeling, optimization and dynamics and their applications to biology, economics, energy, finance, industry, physics and psychology. Given the scientific relevance of the innovative applications and emerging issues they address, the contributions to this volume, written by some of the world´s leading experts in mathematics, economics and other applied sciences, will be seminal to future research developments and will spark future works and collaborations. The majority of the papers presented in this volume were written by participants of the 4th International Conference on Dynamics, Games and Science: Decision Models in a Complex Economy (DGS IV) , held at the National Distance Education University (UNED) in Madrid, Spain in June 2016 and of the 8th Berkeley Bioeconomy Conference: The Future of Biofuels , held at the UC Berkeley Alumni House in April 2015.
This volume gathers contributions reflecting topics presented during an INDAM workshop held in Rome in May 2016. The event brought together many prominent researchers in both Mathematical Analysis and Numerical Computing, the goal being to promote interdisciplinary collaborations. Accordingly, the following thematic areas were developed: 1. Lagrangian discretizations and wavefront tracking for synchronization models; 2. Astrophysics computations and post-Newtonian approximations; 3. Hyperbolic balance laws and corrugated isometric embeddings; 4. Caseology techniques for kinetic equations; 5. Tentative computations of compressible non-standard solutions; 6. Entropy dissipation, convergence rates and inverse design issues. Most of the articles are presented in a self-contained manner; some highlight new achievements, while others offer snapshots of the state of the art in certain fields. The book offers a unique resource, both for young researchers looking to quickly enter a given area of application, and for more experienced ones seeking comprehensive overviews and extensive bibliographic references. Laurent Gosse received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees both in Mathematics from Universities of Lille 1 and Paris IX Dauphine in 1991 and 1997 respectively. Between 1997 and 1999 he was a TMR postdoc in IACM-FORTH (Heraklion, Crete) mostly working on well-balanced numerical schemes and a posteriori error estimates with Ch. Makridakis. From 1999 to 2001, he was postdoc in Universtity of LAquila (Italy) working on stability theory for systems of balance laws and multiphase computations in geometrical optics with K-multibranch solutions. In 2001, he moved to University of Pavia working on asymptotic-preserving schemes and degenerate parabolic equations with G. Toscani. In 2002, he was granted a permanent researcher position at CNR in Bari (Italy) where he developed Lagrangian schemes for nonlinear diffusion models and a stable inversion algorithm for Markov moment problem with O. Runborg. Numerical investigation of semiclassical WKB approximation for quantum models of crystals was conducted with P.A. Markowich between 2003 and 2006. Since 2011, he holds a CNR position at both Roma and University of LAquila and works mainly on the applications of Caseology to well-balanced schemes for collisional kinetic equations. Roberto Natalini received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Bordeaux I (France) in 1986. He has been the Director of the National Research Council of Italys Istituto per le Applicazioni del Calcolo since 2014. His research interests include: analysis of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws, fluid dynamics, road traffic, semiconductors, chemical damage to monuments, and biomathematics. He serves on the Board of the Italian Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics and is Chair of the European Mathematical Societys Raising Awareness Committee.
Innovative Algorithms and Analysis:1st ed. 2017
Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1.0, Bocconi University, course: Innovation in Services, language: English, abstract: Throughout the paper theoretical frameworks discussed during the course Innovation in Services at Bocconi University will be applied to describe and analyse the development of Snapchat as an innovative service. In the following the characteristics of Snapchat, its innovative features and evolution are introduced. The paper includes an analysis of the sectoral competitive environment, the demand and how it has influenced diffusion of innovation as well as prospects. The company Snapchat Inc. was founded by Evan Spiegel and co-founders Robert Murphy and Reggie Brown in September 2011. Today, it delivers the most popular app among teenagers in the United States, and was valued by investors at $18 billion. In 2016, Snapchat Inc. changed its name to Snap Inc.. The evolution of Snapchat has gone from an instant photo messaging app to becoming a brand network, a marketing platform, as well as live stream media. In short, the platform has morphed into combining the best of social networks, magazines and television in an omni-entertainment app.
