The goal of this paper is to study fractional calculus of distributions, the generalized Abel’s integral equations, as well as fractional differential equations in the distributional space D ( R + ) based on inverse convolutional operators and Babenko’s approach. Furthermore, we provide interesting applications of Abel’s integral equations in viscoelastic systems, as well as solving other integral equations, such as θ π / 2 y ( φ ) cos β φ ( cos θ cos φ ) α d φ = f ( θ ) , and 0 x 1 / 2 g ( x ) y ( x + t ) d x = f ( t ) .

The Marchaud fractional derivative can be obtained as a Dirichlet-to–Neumann map via an extension problem to the upper half space. In this paper we prove interior Schauder regularity estimates for a degenerate elliptic equation with mixed Dirichlet–Neumann boundary conditions. The degenerate elliptic equation arises from the Bernardis–Reyes–Stinga–Torrea extension of the Dirichlet problem for the Marchaud fractional derivative. Full article

A dynamical model of Zika virus (ZIKV) epidemic with direct transmission, sexual transmission, and vertical transmission is developed. A sub-optimal control problem to counter against the disease is proposed including three controls: vector elimination, vector-to-human contact reduction, and sexual contact reduction. Each control variable is discretized into piece-wise constant intervals. The problem is solved by Differential Evolution (DE), which is one of the evolutionary algorithm developed for optimization. Two scenarios, namely four time horizons and eight time horizons, are compared and discussed. The simulations show that models with controls lead to decreasing the number of patients as well as epidemic period length. From the optimal solution, vector elimination is the prioritized strategy for disease control. Full article

In our paper, by using the concept of Wasymptotically J statistical equivalence of order α which has been previously defined, we present the definitions of Wasymptotically Jλstatistical equivalence of order α, Wstrongly asymptotically Jλstatistical equivalence of order α, and Wstrongly Cesáro asymptotically Jstatistical equivalence of order α where 0<α1. We also extend these notions with a sequence of positive real numbers, p=(pk), and we investigate how our results change if p is constant. Full article

One-dimensional equations of telegrapher’s-type (TE) and Guyer–Krumhansl-type (GK-type) with substantial derivative considered and operational solutions to them are given. The role of the exponential differential operators is discussed. The examples of their action on some initial functions are explored. Proper solutions are constructed in the integral form and some examples are studied with solutions in elementary functions. A system of hyperbolic-type inhomogeneous differential equations (DE), describing non-Fourier heat transfer with substantial derivative thin films, is considered. Exact harmonic solutions to these equations are obtained for the Cauchy and the Dirichlet conditions. The application to the ballistic heat transport in thin films is studied; the ballistic properties are accounted for by the Knudsen number. Two-speed heat propagation process is demonstrated—fast evolution of the ballistic quasi-temperature component in low-dimensional systems is elucidated and compared with slow diffusive heat-exchange process. The comparative analysis of the obtained solutions is performed. Full article

Essentially, whenever a generalized hypergeometric series can be summed in terms of gamma functions, the result will be important as only a few such summation theorems are available in the literature. In this paper, we apply two identities of generalized hypergeometric series in order to extend some classical summation theorems of hypergeometric functions such as Gauss, Kummer, Dixon, Watson, Whipple, Pfaff–Saalschütz and Dougall formulas and also obtain some new summation theorems in the sequel.

This paper continues our earlier investigation, where a walk-on-spheres (WOS) algorithm for Monte Carlo simulation of the solutions of the Yukawa and the Helmholtz partial differential equations (PDEs) was developed by using the Duffin correspondence. In this paper, we investigate the foundations behind the algorithm for the case of the Yukawa PDE. We study the panharmonic measure, which is a generalization of the harmonic measure for the Yukawa PDE. We show that there are natural stochastic definitions for the panharmonic measure in terms of the Brownian motion and that the harmonic and the panharmonic measures are all mutually equivalent. Furthermore, we calculate their Radon–Nikodym derivatives explicitly for some balls, which is a key result behind the WOS algorithm. Full article

In this paper, using an infinite matrix of complex numbers, a modulus function and a lacunary sequence, we generalize the concept of I -statistical convergence, which is a recently introduced summability method. The names of our new methods are A I -lacunary statistical convergence and strongly A I -lacunary convergence with respect to a sequence of modulus functions. These spaces are denoted by S θ A I , F and N θ A I , F , respectively. We give some inclusion relations between S A I , F , S θ A I , F and N θ A I , F . We also investigate Cesáro summability for A I and we obtain some basic results between A I -Cesáro summability, strongly A I -Cesáro summability and the spaces mentioned above. Full article
