      Nikolaos S Papageorgiou

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this paper we prove some convergence theorems for Banach space valued multifunctions. First we consider the notion of weak convergence of sets and prove a weak completeness and a weak compactness result of the Dunford-Pettis type for weakly compact, convex valued integrable multifunctions. Then we consider set valued martingales and establish two convergence theorems. One using the Kuratowski-Mosco mode of convergence and for the other the Hausdorff mode.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We give a necessary and sufficient condition for the uniformly non-ln(1) property of Musielak-Orlicz sequence spaceslΦ generated by a sequence Φ=(ϕn:n⩾l) of finite Orlicz functions such that$$\mathop {\lim }\limits_{u \to 0} u^{ - 1} \phi _n (u) = 0$$ for eachn∈ℕ. As a result, forn0⩾2, there exist spaceslΦ which are only uniformly non-ln(1)fornn0. Moreover we obtain a characterization of uniformly non-ln(1) and reflexive Orlicz sequence spaces over a wide class of purely atomic measures and of uniformly non-ln(1) Nakano sequence spaces. This extends a result of Luxemburg in [19].

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In Chapter I, a theorem of Margulis which gives the structure of normal subgroups ofSL(1,D) for a quaternion division algebraD over a global fieldK of characteristic not 2, is generalized to semi-local ringsR inK. Using this, we obtain in Chapter II, a description of normal subgroups ofG(R) forK-anisotropic algebraic groupsG of typesA3, Bn, Cn,1Dn,2Dn and some forms of2An. As a Corollary, a proof of the Platonov-Margulis conjecture is obtained for the above groups.

    • On continuous maps between Grassmann manifolds

      LetGn,k denote the Grassmann manifold ofk-planes in ℝn. We show that for any continuous mapf: Gn,k→Gn,l the induced map inZ/2-cohomology is either zero in positive dimensions or has image in the subring generated by w1n, k), provided 1≤l<k≤[n/2] andnk+2l-1. Our main application is to obtain negative results on the existence of equivariant maps between oriented Grassmann manifolds. We also obtain positive results in many cases on the existence of equivariant maps between oriented Grassmann manifolds.

    • Linear, hydrodynamic flow in a rotating saturated porous medium

      V Soma Raju V Sundaram

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Linear, steady, axisymmetric flow of a homogeneous fluid in a rigid, bounded, rotating, saturated porous medium is analyzed. The fluid motions are driven by differential rotation of horizontal boundaries. The dynamics of the interior region and vertical boundary layers are investigated as functions of the Ekman number E(=vL2) and rotational Darcy 3 numberN(=kΩ/v) which measures the ratio between the Coriolis force and the Darcy frictional term. IfNE−1/2, the permeability is sufficiently high and the flow dynamics are the same as those of the conventional free flow problem with Stewartson'sE1/3 andE1/4 double layer structure. For values ofNE−1/2 the effect of porous medium is felt by the flow; the Taylor-Proudman constraint is no longer valid. ForNE−1/3 the porous medium strongly affects the flow; viscous side wall layer is absent to the lowest order and the fluid pumped by the Ekman layer, returns through a region of thicknessO(N−1). The intermediate rangeE−1/3NE−1/2 is characterized by double side wall layer structure: (1)E1/3 layer to return the mass flux and (ii) (NE)1/2 layer to adjust the interior azimuthal velocity to that of the side wall. Spin-up problem is also discussed and it is shown that the steady state is reached quickly in a time scaleO(N).
