## Forward and backward in time Cauchy problems for systems of parabolic-type PDE with a small parameter

The paper introduces a class of functions where the resolving operator for a system of Kolmogorov–Feller-type equations with a small parameter is well posed in forward and backward times. The introduced class of functions is invariant under the resolving operator if the solution is understood in the weak sense with an exponential weight. The paper continues the study of [6].

We explain the relation between the weak asymptotics method introduced by the author and V. M. Shelkovich and the classical Maslov-Whitham method for constructing approximate solutions describing the propagation of nonlinear solitary waves.

An example of Schrodinger and Klein-Gordon equations with fast oscillating coefficients is used to show that they can be averaged by an adiabatic approximation based on V.P. Maslov's operator method.

Filtering the suspension in porous media is important for long-term assessment of the strength of soil in the construction of underground and hydraulic engineering structures. The geometrical and mechanical model of filtering is considered: solid particles pass freely through the larger pores, and get stuck at the entrance of tiny pores smaller than the diameter of the particles. The asymptotics of the suspended and retained particle concentrations in the suspension is constructed on the assumption of small deposit.

On the basis of full stationary Navier-Stokes and Darcy equations an asymptotic solution of the hydrodynamic calculation of the porous bearing of finite length is presented. On the basis of numerical analysis obtained in the analytical expression for the bearing capacity is established that when the permeability of the porous layer varies according to the same laws that form the lubricating film, the bearing in the bearing capacity possesses the dual action property. The effect of Reynolds number on the main bearing performance is assessed.

A size-exclusion model of solid particle capture for a flow of suspension in a porous media is considered. For a quasi-linear system of equations for the concentration of suspended and retainrd particles the asymptotic solution is constructed near the filter inlet. For linear filtration coefficient the numerical comparison of the asymptotics and the exact solution is performed.

The flow of monodispersed suspension in porous media with geometric capture mechanism of solid particles in filter pores is considered. Based on the integral representation of the solution the asymptotic solution of deep bed filtration problem near the concentration front is constructed and proved.

Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k- rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the question whether or not the field extensions k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G are purely transcendental. We show that the answer is the same for k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G, and reduce the problem to the case where G is simple. For simple groups we show that the answer is positive if G is split of type A_n or C_n, and negative for groups of other types, except possibly G_2. A key ingredient in the proof of the negative result is a recent formula for the unramified Brauer group of a homogeneous space with connected stabilizers. As a byproduct of our investigation we give an affirmative answer to a question of Grothendieck about the existence of a rational section of the categorical quotient morphism for the conjugating action of G on itself.

Let G be a connected semisimple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. In 1965 Steinberg proved that if G is simply connected, then in G there exists a closed irreducible cross-section of the set of closures of regular conjugacy classes. We prove that in arbitrary G such a cross-section exists if and only if the universal covering isogeny Ĝ → G is bijective; this answers Grothendieck's question cited in the epigraph. In particular, for char k = 0, the converse to Steinberg's theorem holds. The existence of a cross-section in G implies, at least for char k = 0, that the algebra k[G]G of class functions on G is generated by rk G elements. We describe, for arbitrary G, a minimal generating set of k[G]G and that of the representation ring of G and answer two Grothendieck's questions on constructing generating sets of k[G]G. We prove the existence of a rational (i.e., local) section of the quotient morphism for arbitrary G and the existence of a rational cross-section in G (for char k = 0, this has been proved earlier); this answers the other question cited in the epigraph. We also prove that the existence of a rational section is equivalent to the existence of a rational W-equivariant map T- - - >G/T where T is a maximal torus of G and W the Weyl group.

This proceedings publication is a compilation of selected contributions from the “Third International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems” which took place at the University of Florida, Gainesville, February 16–18, 2011. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia in order to exchange new discoveries and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information Systems: Mathematical Foundation presents state-of-the art research and is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in some of the most recent discoveries in information theory and dynamical systems. Scientists in other disciplines may also benefit from the applications of new developments to their own area of study.
