## Canonical transformations and multipartite coupled parametric processes, Physica Scripta, T160 (2014)

A general approach is considered to find wave function and density operator evolution of the systems including the arbitrary number of coupled optical parametric interactions described by the quadratic Hamiltonian. This approach is based on the time-dependent canonical transformations that define the evolution of the system in the Heisenberg picture or in the interaction picture. An application is illustrated with four-frequency entangled light fields, which can be produced at the nonlinear optical interactions in vapors and solid states. The process includes one non-degenerate parametric down-conversion followed by two parametric up-conversions occurring in the field of the same classical pumping wave.

Based on the leximin and leximax preferences, we consider two threshold preference relations on the set X of alternatives, each of which is characterized by an n-dimensional vector (n is greater than 2) with integer components varying between 1 and m>2. We determine explicitly in terms of binomial coe±cients the unique utility function for each of the two relations, which in addition maps X onto the natural `interval' {1, 2,...,|~X|}, where ~X is the quotient set of X with respect to the indifference relation I on X induced by the threshold preference. This permits us to evaluate all equivalence classes and indifference classes of the threshold order on X, present an algorithm of ordering the monotone representatives of indifference classes, and restore the indifference class of an alternative via its ordinal number with respect to the threshold preference order.

The complexity of today’s statistical data calls for modern mathematical tools. Many fields of science make use of mathematical statistics and require continuous updating on statistical technologies. Practice makes perfect, since mastering the tools makes them applicable. Our book of exercises and solutions offers a wide range of applications and numerical solutions based on R. In modern mathematical statistics, the purpose is to provide statistics students with a number of basic exercises and also an understanding of how the theory can be applied to real-world problems. The application aspect is also quite important, as most previous exercise books are mostly on theoretical derivations. Also we add some problems from topics often encountered in recent research papers. The book was written for statistics students with one or two years of coursework in mathematical statistics and probability, professors who hold courses in mathematical statistics, and researchers in other fields who would like to do some exercises on math statistics.

The dynamics of a two-component Davydov-Scott (DS) soliton with a small mismatch of the initial location or velocity of the high-frequency (HF) component was investigated within the framework of the Zakharov-type system of two coupled equations for the HF and low-frequency (LF) fields. In this system, the HF field is described by the linear Schrödinger equation with the potential generated by the LF component varying in time and space. The LF component in this system is described by the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a term of quadratic influence of the HF field on the LF field. The frequency of the DS soliton`s component oscillation was found analytically using the balance equation. The perturbed DS soliton was shown to be stable. The analytical results were confirmed by numerical simulations.

Radiation conditions are described for various space regions, radiation-induced effects in spacecraft materials and equipment components are considered and information on theoretical, computational, and experimental methods for studying radiation effects are presented. The peculiarities of radiation effects on nanostructures and some problems related to modeling and radiation testing of such structures are considered.

This volume presents new results in the study and optimization of information transmission models in telecommunication networks using different approaches, mainly based on theiries of queueing systems and queueing networks .

The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process. A summary of definitions of technology already available in OECD manuals and the stocktaking results are provided in the Annex section.
