This paper is devoted to bi-spatial random attractors of the stochastic Fitzhugh-Nagumo equations with additive noise on thin domains when the terminate space is the Sobolev space. We first established the existence of random attractor on regular space and then show that the upper semi-continuity of these attractors under the Sobolev norm when a family of

**Abstract:**

To study the emergence and evolution of drug resistance during treatment of HIV infection, we study a mathematical model with two strains, one drug-sensitive and the other drug-resistant, by incorporating cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) immune response. The reproductive numbers for each strain with and without the CTL immune response are obtained and shown to determine the stability of the steady states. By sensitivity analysis, we evaluate how the changes of parameters influence the reproductive numbers. The model shows that CTL immune response can suppress the development of drug resistance. There is a dynamic relationship between antiretroviral drug administration, the prevalence of drug resistance, the total level of viral production, and the strength of immune responses. We further investigate the scenario under which the drug-resistant strain can outcompete the wild-type strain. If drug efficacy is at an intermediate level, the drug-resistant virus is likely to arise. The slower the immune response wanes, the slower the drug-resistant strain grows. The results suggest that immunotherapy that aims to enhance immune responses, combined with antiretroviral drug treatment, may result in a functional control of HIV infection.

**Abstract:**

The present paper concerns an initial boundary value problem of two-dimensional (2D) nonhomogeneous magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations with non-negative density. We establish the global existence and exponential decay of strong solutions. In particular, the initial data can be arbitrarily large. The key idea is to use a lemma due to Desjardins (Arch. Rational Mech. Anal. 137:135–158, 1997).

**Abstract:**

In our paper, the finite-time cluster synchronization problem is investigated for the coupled dynamical systems in networks. Based on impulsive differential equation theory and differential inequality method, two novel Lyapunov-based finite-time stability results are proposed and be used to obtain the finite-time cluster synchronization criteria for the coupled dynamical systems with synchronization and desynchronization impulsive effects, respectively. The settling time with respect to the average impulsive interval is estimated according to the sufficient synchronization conditions. It is illustrated that the introduced settling time is not only dependent on the initial conditions, but also dependent on the impulsive effects. Compared with the results without stabilizing impulses, the attractive domain of the finite-time stability can be enlarged by adding impulsive control input. Conversely, the smaller attractive domain can be obtained when the original system is subject to the destabilizing impulses. By using our criteria, the continuous feedback control can always be designed to finite-time stabilize the unstable impulsive system. Several existed results are extended and improved in the literature. Finally, typical numerical examples involving the large-scale complex network are outlined to exemplify the availability of the impulsive control and continuous feedback control, respectively.

**Abstract:**

The current paper is devoted to the study of the existence and stability of generalized transition waves of the following time-dependent reaction-diffusion cooperative system

Here *J. Differential Equations* 265 (2018) 3048-3091]. In this paper, using the principal Lyapunov exponent and principal Floquent bundle theory of linear cooperative systems, we prove the existence of generalized transition waves in any given direction with speed greater than the spreading speed by constructing appropriate subsolutions and supersolutions. When the initial value is uniformly bounded with respect to a weighted maximum norm, we further show that all solutions converge to the generalized transition wave solutions exponentially in time.

**Abstract:**

We establish a new robustness theorem of delayed random attractors at zero-memory and the criteria are given by *part* convergence of cocycles along with regularity, recurrence and eventual compactness of attractors, where we relax the convergence condition of cocycles in all known robustness theorem of attractors, especially by Wang et al.(Siam-jads, 2015). As an application, we consider the stochastic non-autonomous 2D-Ginzburg-Landau delay equation, whose solutions seem not to be convergent for all initial data as the memory time goes to zero, but we can show the convergence of solutions toward zero-memory for *part* initial data in the lower-regular space. As a further result, we show that, for each memory time, the delay equation has a pullback random attractor such that it is upper semi-continuous at zero-memory.

**Abstract:**

As we known, it is popular for a designed system to achieve a prescribed performance, which have remarkable capability to regulate the flow of information from distinct and independent components. Also, it is not well understand, in both theories and applications, how self propelled agents use only limited environmental information and simple rules to organize into an ordered motion. In this paper, we focus on analysis the flocking behaviour and the line-shaped pattern for collective motion involving time delay effects. Firstly, we work on a delayed Cucker-Smale-type system involving a general communication weight and a constant delay

**Abstract:**

Birth-death processes are a fundamental reaction module for which we can find its prototypes in many scientific fields. For such a kind of module, if all the reaction events are Markovian, the reaction kinetics is simple. However, experimentally observable quantities are in general consequences of a series of reactions, implying that the synthesis of a macromolecule in general involve multiple middle reaction steps with some reactions that would not be specified by experiments. This multistep process can create molecular memory between reaction events, leading to non-Markovian behavior. Based on the theoretical framework established in a recent paper published in [

In this work we consider a family of reaction-diffusion equations with variable exponents reaching as a limit problem a semilinear equation. We provide uniform estimates for the solutions and we prove that the solutions of the family of quasilinear equations with variable exponents converge to the solution of a limit semilinear equation when the exponents go to 2. Moreover, the robustness of the global attractors is also studied.

In this paper, a general viral infection model with humoral immunity is investigated. The model describes the interaction of uninfected target cells, infected cells, free viruses and humoral immune response, incorporating two virus transmission modes and intracellular delay. Some reasonable hypothesises are made for the general incidence rates. Through stability analysis of equilibria under these hypothesises, the model exhibits threshold dynamics with respect to the immune-inactivated reproduction rate

**Abstract:**

A class of stochastic Fredholm-algebraic equations (SFAEs) is introduced and investigated. Like backward stochastic differential equations (BSDEs), its solution includes two parts. The interesting thing is that the first part is deterministic and constrained, even though the whole system is stochastic. Our study is mainly motivated by risk indifference pricing problem. Actually, the existing risk indifference price always keeps unchangeable with respect to initial wealth, which is economically unsatisfying. Nevertheless, here a new wealth dependent risk indifference price is proposed by particular SFAEs.

**Abstract:**

Fractional telegraph equations are an important class of evolution equations and have widely applications in signal analysis such as transmission and propagation of electrical signals. Aiming at the one-dimensional time-fractional telegraph equation, a class of explicit-implicit (E-I) difference methods and implicit-explicit (I-E) difference methods are proposed. The two methods are based on a combination of the classical implicit difference method and the classical explicit difference method. Under the premise of smooth solution, theoretical analysis and numerical experiments show that the E-I and I-E difference schemes are unconditionally stable, with 2nd order spatial accuracy,

**Abstract:**

In this work, we consider the forced generalized Burgers-Huxley equation and establish the existence and uniqueness of a global weak solution using a Faedo-Galerkin approximation method. Under smoothness assumptions on the initial data and external forcing, we also obtain further regularity results of weak solutions. Taking external forcing to be zero, a positivity result as well as a bound on the classical solution are also established. Furthermore, we examine the long-term behavior of solutions of the generalized Burgers-Huxley equations. We first establish the existence of absorbing balls in appropriate spaces for the semigroup associated with the solutions and then show the existence of a global attractor for the system. The inviscid limits of the Burgers-Huxley equations to the Burgers as well as Huxley equations are also discussed. Next, we consider the stationary Burgers-Huxley equation and establish the existence and uniqueness of weak solution by using a Faedo-Galerkin approximation technique and compactness arguments. Then, we discuss about the exponential stability of stationary solutions. Concerning numerical studies, we first derive error estimates for the semidiscrete Galerkin approximation. Finally, we present two computational examples to show the convergence numerically.
