Actual challenges of the ecological-economic system for the case study of the Republic of Armenia (RA) are considered in the paper. The simulation of the ecological-economic system based on methods of the agent-based modelling and the system-dynamics, which allowed designing the Ecological Map of RA, was created. The important purpose of the suggested approach is to seek scenarios of a modernization of enterprises, which are main sources of the air pollution with simultaneous determining the effective strategy of the government regulation. The bi-criteria optimization problem of parameters of the ecological-economic system was formulated and solved for the case study of RA.

We apply the suboptimal sequential nonparametric hypotheses testing approach for effectiveness of a statistical decision by sample space reducing. Numerical examples of the sample space reducing are given when an appropriate reducing makes it possible to construct robust sequential nonparametric hypotheses testing with a smaller mean duration time then one on the total sample space. © 2014 IEEE.

In this paper we introduce a generalized learning algorithm for probabilistic topic models (PTM). Many known and new algorithms for PLSA, LDA, and SWB models can be obtained as its special cases by choosing a subset of the following “options”: regularization, sampling, update frequency, sparsing and robustness. We show that a robust topic model, which distinguishes specific, background and topic terms, doesn’t need Dirichlet regularization and provides controllably sparse solution.

This volume is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of academician V. M. Matrosov. The book contains reviews and original articles, which address the issues of development of the method of vector Lyapunov functions, questions of stability and stabilization control in mechanical systems, stability in differential games, the study of systems with multirate time and other. Articles prepared specially for this edition.

Quite many engineering problems, problems from ecology, medicine, and social sciences are characterized by the presence of factors bringing uncertainty into the corresponding control systems. Additional difficulties for control action construction arise in the case when the objects are described by nonlinear highorder evolutionary equations. An important subset of these objects consists of the object with interval parametric uncertainty with a given control objective and with a given a given termination time of the transient process. For this objects, one of the possible ways of control action synthesis is the application of the guaranteed control concept. We propose the method of control synthesis for one class of nonlinear uncertain objects with using their robust models having linear structure and the parameters, depending on their state.

We present robustness of the firm as an uninterrupted exchange of resources between the firm and owners of resources - stakeholders. We derive the model on the mutually accepted conditions of exchanges for the major resources and indicate the firm's limits to manipulate the exchange conditions. We also argue that temporary benevolent behavior of the firms towards one or several its stakeholders leads to accumulation of stakeholders' quasi-rent and contributes to the overall robustness of the firm.

This book deals with mathematical problems arising in the context of meteorological modelling. It gathers and presents some of the most interesting and important issues from the interaction of mathematics and meteorology. It is unique in that it features contributions on topics like data assimilation, ensemble prediction, numerical methods, and transport modelling, from both mathematical and meteorological perspectives.

The derivation and solution of all kinds of numerical prediction models require the application of results from various mathematical fields. The present volume is divided into three parts, moving from mathematical and numerical problems through air quality modelling, to advanced applications in data assimilation and probabilistic forecasting.

The book arose from the workshop “Mathematical Problems in Meteorological Modelling” held in Budapest in May 2014 and organized by the ECMI Special Interest Group on Numerical Weather Prediction. Its main objective is to highlight the beauty of the development fields discussed, to demonstrate their mathematical complexity and, more importantly, to encourage mathematicians to contribute to the further success of such practical applications as weather forecasting and climate change projections. Written by leading experts in the field, the book provides an attractive and diverse introduction to areas in which mathematicians and modellers from the meteorological community can cooperate and help each other solve the problems that operational weather centres face, now and in the near future.

Readers engaged in meteorological research will become more familiar with the corresponding mathematical background, while mathematicians working in numerical analysis, partial differential equations, or stochastic analysis will be introduced to further application fields of their research area, and will find stimulation and motivation for their future research work.

We consider certain spaces of functions on the circle, which naturally appear in harmonic analysis, and superposition operators on these spaces. We study the following question: which functions have the property that each their superposition with a homeomorphism of the circle belongs to a given space? We also study the multidimensional case.

We consider the spaces of functions on the m-dimensional torus, whose Fourier transform is p -summable. We obtain estimates for the norms of the exponential functions deformed by a C1 -smooth phase. The results generalize to the multidimensional case the one-dimensional results obtained by the author earlier in “Quantitative estimates in the Beurling—Helson theorem”, Sbornik: Mathematics, 201:12 (2010), 1811 – 1836.

The problem of minimizing the root mean square deviation of a uniform string with clamped ends from an equilibrium position is investigated. It is assumed that the initial conditions are specified and the ends of the string are clamped. The Fourier method is used, which enables the control problem with a partial differential equation to be reduced to a control problem with a denumerable system of ordinary differential equations. For the optimal control problem in the l2 space obtained, it is proved that the optimal synthesis contains singular trajectories and chattering trajectories. For the initial problem of the optimal control of the vibrations of a string it is also proved that there is a unique solution for which the optimal control has a denumerable number of switchings in a finite time interval.

For a class of optimal control problems and Hamiltonian systems generated by these problems in the space *l *2, we prove the existence of extremals with a countable number of switchings on a finite time interval. The optimal synthesis that we construct in the space *l *2 forms a fiber bundle with piecewise smooth two-dimensional fibers consisting of extremals with a countable number of switchings over an infinite-dimensional basis of singular extremals.

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.

In this paper, we construct a new distribution corresponding to a real noble gas as well as the equation of state for it.
