    • Criteria for the unitarizability of some highest weight modules

      R Parthasarathy

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      For a linear semisimple Lie group we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for a highest weight module with non-singular infinitesimal character to be unitarizable.

      S K Sen

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A method to obtain a nonnegative integral solution of a system of linear equations, if such a solution exists is given. The method writes linear equations as an integer programming problem and then solves the problem using a combination of artificial basis technique and a method of integer forms.

    • On duality in linear fractional programming

      C R Seshan

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this paper, a dual of a given linear fractional program is defined and the weak, direct and converse duality theorems are proved. Both the primal and the dual are linear fractional programs. This duality theory leads to necessary and sufficient conditions for the optimality of a given feasible solution. A unmerical example is presented to illustrate the theory in this connection. The equivalence of Charnes and Cooper dual and Dinkelbach’s parametric dual of a linear fractional program is also established.

    • On generalised thermoelastic wave propagation

      D S Chandrasekharaiah

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Generalised thermoelasticity theories are employed to study one-dimensional disturbances in a half-space due to a thermal impulse on the boundary. Short time approximation of solutions are deduced and the exact discontinuities in the mechanical and thermal fields are analysed using the Laplace transform technique.

    • On weak discontinuities through thermally conducting and dissociating gases

      Rama Shankar Sunil Kumar Jain

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Using singular surface theory, the phenomena associated with the uniform and nonuniform propagation of weak discontinuities through thermally conducting and dissociating gases is studied. The basic differential equations governing the criteria for decay or blow up of these discontinuities is obtained. It turns out that growth and decay of weak discontinuities are derived and solved completely. The the thermal conduction and dissociation allow the existence of a singular surface carrying a weak discontinuity which grows into a shock and the role of dissociation and thermal conduction is to cause rapid damping in the formation of this shock.

    • On the breakdown of acceleration waves in dissociating gas flows

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The present paper is devoted to the study of characteristic solution in the neighbourhood of the leading frozen characteristics in dissociating gas flows. It is found that at the cusp of the envelope of intersecting forward characteristics there occurs a breakdown of the wave after a finite critical timeto. It is observed that there exists a critical value of the initial amplitude of the wave such that all compressive waves with an initial amplitude greater than the critical one will terminate into a shock wave due to non-linear steepening while an initial amplitude less than the critical one will result in a continuous decay. It is also concluded that the breakdown point moves forward along the leading characteristics due to dissociation effects.

    • Numerical solution of a quasilinear parabolic problem

      P C Jain M K Kadalbajoo

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A combined approach of linearisation techniques and finite difference method is presented for obtaining the numerical solution of a quasilinear parabolic problem. The given problem is reduced to a sequence of linear problems by using the Picard or Newton methods. Each problem of this sequence is approximated by Crank-Nicolson difference scheme. The solutions of the resulting system of algebraic equations are obtained by using Block-Gaussian elimination method. Two numerical examples are solved by using both linearisation procedures to illustrate the method. For these examples, the Newton method is found to be more effective, especially when the given nonlinear problem has steep gradients.
