A quantum spin system with random interactions I
We study a quantum spin glass as a quantum spin system with random interactions and establish the existence of a family of evolution groups {τ_{t}(ω)}_{ω∈/Ω} of the spin system. The notion of ergodicity of a measure preserving group of automorphisms of the probability space Ω, is used to prove the almost sure independence of the Arveson spectrum Sp(τ(ω)) of τ_{t}(ε). As a consequence, for any family of (τ(ω),β) — KMS states {ρ(ω)}, the spectrum of the generator of the group of unitaries which implement τ(ω) in the GNS representation is also almost surely independent of ω.

Weighted approximation of continuous functions by sequences of linear positive operators
In this work we obtain, under suitable conditions, theorems of Korovkin type for spaces with different weight, composed of continuous functions defined on unbounded regions. These results can be seen as an extension of theorems by Gadjiev in [4] and [5].

Hyperfinite representation of distributions
Hyperfinite representation of distributions is studied following the method introduced by Kinoshita [2,3], although we use a different approach much in the vein of [4]. Products and Fourier transforms of representatives of distributions are also analysed.

Sampling and Π-sampling expansions
Using the hyperfinite representation of functions and generalized functions this paper develops a rigorous version of the so-called ‘delta method’ approach to sampling theory. This yields a slightly more general version of the classical WKS sampling theorem for band-limited functions.

Formula for a solution ofu_{t} +H(u,Du) =g
We study the continuous as well as the discontinuous solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi equationu_{t} +H(u,Du) =g in ℝ^{n} x ℝ_{+} withu(x, 0) =u_{0}(x). The HamiltonianH(s,p) is assumed to be convex and positively homogeneous of degree one inp for eachs in ℝ. IfH is non increasing ins, in general, this problem need not admit a continuous viscosity solution. Even in this case we obtain a formula for discontinuous viscosity solutions.

Completely monotone multisequences, symmetric probabilities and a normal limit theorem
Let G_{n,k} be the set of all partial completely monotone multisequences of ordern and degreek, i.e., multisequencesc_{n}(β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}), β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}= 0,1,2,…, β_{1}+β_{2} + … +β_{k} ≤n,c_{n}(0,0,…, 0) = 1 and$$( - 1)^{\beta _0 } \Delta ^{\beta _0 } c_n (\beta _1 ,\beta _2 ,...,\beta _k ) \geqslant 0$$ whenever β_{0} ≤n - (β_{1} + β_{2} + … + β_{k}) where Δc_{n}(β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}) =c_{n}(β_{1} + 1, β_{2},…, β_{k})+c_{n}(β_{1},β_{2}+1,…, β_{k})+…+c_{n} (β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}+1) -c_{n}(β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}). Further, let Π_{n,k} be the set of all symmetric probabilities on {0,1,2,…,k}^{n}. We establish a one-to-one correspondence between the sets G_{n,k} and Π_{n,k} and use it to formulate and answer interesting questions about both. Assigning to G_{n,k} the uniform probability measure, we show that, asn→∞, any fixed section {it{c_{n}}(β_{1},β_{2},…, β_{k}), 1 ≤ Σβ_{i} ≤m}, properly centered and normalized, is asymptotically multivariate normal. That is,$$\left\{ {\sqrt {\left( \begin{gathered} n + k \hfill \\ k \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \right)} (c_n (\beta _1 ,\beta _2 ,...,\beta _k ) - c_0 (\beta _1 ,\beta _2 ,...,\beta _k ),1 \leqslant \beta _1 + \beta _2 + \cdots + \beta _k \leqslant m} \right\}$$ converges weakly to MVN[0, Σ_{m}]; the centering constantsc_{0}(β_{1}, β_{2},…, β_{k}) and the asymptotic covariances depend on the moments of the Dirichlet (1, 1,…, 1; 1) distribution on the standard simplex inR^{k}.

An asymptotic derivation of weakly nonlinear ray theory
Using a method of expansion similar to Chapman-Enskog expansion, a new formal perturbation scheme based on high frequency approximation has been constructed. The scheme leads to an eikonal equation in which the leading order amplitude appears. The transport equation for the amplitude has been deduced with an errorO(ε^{2}) where ε is the small parameter appearing in the high frequency approximation. On a length scale over which Choquet-Bruhat’s theory is valid, this theory reduces to the former. The theory is valid on a much larger length scale and the leading order terms give the weakly nonlinear ray theory (WNLRT) of Prasad, which has been very successful in giving physically realistic results and also in showing that the caustic of a linear theory is resolved when nonlinear effects are included. The weak shock ray theory with infinite system of compatibility conditions also follows from this theory.

Microrotation effect of a load applied normal to the boundary and moving at a constant velocity along one of the co-ordinate axis in a generalized thermoelastic half-space is studied. The analytical expressions of the displacement component, force stress, couple stress and temperature field for two different theories i.e. Lord-Shulman (L-S) and Green-Lindsay (G-L) for supersonic, subsonic and transonic velocities in case of mechanical and thermal sources applied, are obtained by the use of Fourier transform technique. The integral transforms have been inverted by using a numerical technique and the numerical results are illustrated graphically for magnesium crystal-like material.
