**Abstract:**

In this paper we investigate the long time behavior of a nonautonomous dynamical system (cocycle) when its driving semigroup is subjected to impulses. We provide conditions to ensure the existence of global attractors for the associated impulsive skew-product semigroups, uniform attractors for the coupled impulsive cocycle and pullback attractors for the associated evolution processes. Finally, we illustrate the theory with an application to cascade systems.

**Abstract:**

Hele-Shaw cells where the top plate is lifted uniformly at a prescribed speed and the bottom plate is fixed have been used to study interface related problems. This paper focuses on an interfacial flow with kinetic undercooling regularization in a radial Hele-Shaw cell with a time dependent gap. We obtain the local existence of analytic solution of the moving boundary problem when the initial data is analytic. The methodology is to use complex analysis and reduce the free boundary problem to a Riemann-Hilbert problem and an abstract Cauchy-Kovalevskaya evolution problem.

**Abstract:**

Based on the local energy dissipation property of the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) model with slope selection, we develop three, second order fully discrete, local energy dissipation rate preserving (LEDP) algorithms for the model using finite difference methods. For periodic boundary conditions, we show that these algorithms are global energy dissipation rate preserving (GEDP). For adiabatic, physical boundary conditions, we construct two GEDP algorithms from the three LEDP ones with consistently discretized physical boundary conditions. In addition, we show that all the algorithms preserve the total mass at the discrete level as well. Mesh refinement tests are conducted to confirm the convergence rates of the algorithms and two benchmark examples are presented to show the accuracy and performance of the methods.

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we study the invasion dynamics of a diffusive pioneer-climax model in monotone and non-monotone cases. For parameter ranges in which the system admits monotone properties, we establish the existence of spreading speeds and their coincidence with the minimum wave speeds by monotone dynamical system theories. The linear determinacy of the minimum wave speeds is also studied by constructing suitable upper solutions. For parameter ranges in which the system is non-monotone, we further determine the existence of spreading speeds and traveling waves by the sandwich technique and upper-lower solution method. Our results generalize the existing results established under monotone assumptions to more general cases.

**Abstract:**

This paper is concerned with propagation phenomena for an epidemic model describing the circulation of a disease within two populations or two subgroups in periodic media, where the susceptible individuals are assumed to be motionless. The spatial dynamics for the cooperative system obtained by a classical transformation are investigated, including spatially periodic steady state, spreading speeds and pulsating travelling fronts. It is proved that the minimal wave speed is linearly determined and given by a variational formula involving linear eigenvalue problem. Further, we prove that the existence and non-existence of travelling wave solutions of the model are entirely determined by the basic reproduction ratio

**Abstract:**

The stability and the basin of attraction of a periodic orbit can be determined using a contraction metric, i.e., a Riemannian metric with respect to which adjacent solutions contract. A contraction metric does not require knowledge of the position of the periodic orbit and is robust to perturbations.

In this paper we characterize such a Riemannian contraction metric as matrix-valued solution of a linear first-order Partial Differential Equation. This enables the explicit construction of a contraction metric by numerically solving this equation in [

**Abstract:**

Taking account of spatial heterogeneity, latency in infected individuals, and time for shed bacteria to the aquatic environment, we build a delayed nonlocal reaction-diffusion cholera model. A feature of this model is that the incidences are of general nonlinear forms. By using the theories of monotone dynamical systems and uniform persistence, we obtain a threshold dynamics determined by the basic reproduction number

**Abstract:**

The tempered fractional diffusion equation could be recognized as the generalization of the classic fractional diffusion equation that the truncation effects are included in the bounded domains. This paper focuses on designing the high order fully discrete local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method based on the generalized alternating numerical fluxes for the tempered fractional diffusion equation. From a practical point of view, the generalized alternating numerical flux which is different from the purely alternating numerical flux has a broader range of applications. We first design an efficient finite difference scheme to approximate the tempered fractional derivatives and then a fully discrete LDG method for the tempered fractional diffusion equation. We prove that the scheme is unconditionally stable and convergent with the order

**Abstract:**

The Feynman–Kac formula implies that every suitable classical solution of a semilinear Kolmogorov partial differential equation (PDE) is also a solution of a certain stochastic fixed point equation (SFPE). In this article we study such and related SFPEs. In particular, the main result of this work proves existence of unique solutions of certain SFPEs in a general setting. As an application of this main result we establish the existence of unique solutions of SFPEs associated with semilinear Kolmogorov PDEs with Lipschitz continuous nonlinearities even in the case where the associated semilinear Kolmogorov PDE does not possess a classical solution.

**Abstract:**

This paper is devoted to the mathematical and numerical study of a new proposed model based on a fractional diffusion equation coupled with a nonlinear regularization of the Total Variation operator. This model is primarily intended to introduce a weak norm in the fidelity term, where this norm is considered more appropriate for capturing very oscillatory characteristics interpreted as a texture. Furthermore, our proposed model profits from the benefits of a variable exponent used to distinguish the features of the image. By using Faedo-Galerkin method, we prove the well-posedness (existence and uniqueness) of the weak solution for the proposed model. Based on the alternating direction implicit method of Peaceman-Rachford and the approximations of the Gr

**Abstract:**

This paper presents a comparative study on several issues of the microscopic stress definitions. Firstly, we derived an Irving-Kirkwood formulation for Cauchy stress evaluation in Eulerian coordinates. We showed that quantities, such as density and momentum, should to be defined properly on microscopic level in order to guarantee the conservation relations on macroscopic level. Secondly, the relation between Cauchy and first Piola-Kirchhoff stress was investigated both theoretically and numerically. At zero temperature, classical pointwise relation between these two stress is satisfied both in Virial and Hardy formulation. While at finite temperature, temporal averaging is required to guarantee this relation for Virial formulation. For Hardy formulation, an additional term need to be included in the classical relation between the Cauchy stress and the first Piola-Kirchhoff stress. Meanwhle, the linear relation between the Cauchy stress and the first Piola-Kirchhoff stress with respect to the temperature are obtained in both Virial and Hardy formulations. The thermal expansion coefficients are also studied by using quasi-harmonic approximation. Thirdly, different from that in the Lagrangian coordinates case, where the time averaging procedure can be performed in a post-processing manner when the kernel function is separable, the stress evaluation in Eulerian system must be evaluated spatially and temporally at the same time, even in separable kernel case. This can be seen from the comparison of the two procedures. Numerical examples were provided to illustrate our investigations.

**Abstract:**

Fisher-KPP equations are an important class of mathematical models with practical background. Previous studies analyzed the asymptotic behaviors of the front and back of the wavefront and proved the existence of stochastic traveling waves, by imposing decrease constraints on the growth function. For the Fisher-KPP equation with a stochastically fluctuated growth rate, we find that if the decrease restrictions are removed, the same results still hold. Moreover, we show that with increasing the noise intensity, the original equation with Fisher-KPP nonlinearity evolves into first the one with degenerated Fisher-KPP nonlinearity and then the one with Nagumo nonlinearity. For the Fisher-KPP equation subjected to the environmental noise, the established asymptotic behavior of the front of the wavefront still holds even if the decrease constraint on the growth function is ruled out. If this constraint is removed, however, the established asymptotic behavior of the back of the wavefront will no longer hold, implying that the decrease constraint on the growth function is a sufficient and necessary condition to ensure the asymptotic behavior of the back of the wavefront. In both cases of noise, the systems can allow stochastic traveling waves.

**Abstract:**

As we all know, "summer fishing moratorium" is an internationally recognized management measure of fishery, which can protect stock of fish and promote the balance of marine ecology. In this paper, "intermittent control" is used to simulate this management strategy, which is the first attempt in theoretical analysis and the intermittence fits perfectly the moratorium. As an application, a stochastic two-prey one-predator Lotka-Volterra model with intermittent capture is considered. Modeling ideas and analytical skills in this paper can also be used to other stochastic models. In order to deal with intermittent capture in stochastic model, a new time-averaged objective function is proposed. Besides, the corresponding optimal harvesting strategies are obtained by using the equivalent method (equivalency between time-average and expectation). Theoretical results show that intermittent capture can affect the optimal harvesting effort, but it cannot change the corresponding optimal time-averaged yield, which are accord with observations. Finally, the results are illustrated by practical examples of marine fisheries and numerical simulations.

In this paper we analyze the dynamics of a cancer invasion model that incorporates the cancer stem cell hypothesis. In particular, we develop a model that includes a cancer stem cell subpopulation of tumor cells. Traveling wave analysis and Geometric Singular Perturbation Theory are used in order to determine existence and persistence of solutions for the model.

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we consider the Schrödinger-KdV system with time-dependent boundary external forces. We give conditions on the external forces sufficient for the unique existence of small solutions bounded for all time. Then, we investigate the existence of bounded solution, periodic solution, quasi-periodic solution and almost periodic solution for the Schrödinger-KdV system. The main difficulty is the nonlinear terms in the equations, in order to overcome this difficulty, we establish some properties for the semigroup associated with linear operator which is a crucial tool.

**Abstract:**

This paper demonstrates input-to-state stability (ISS) of the SIR model of infectious diseases with respect to the disease-free equilibrium and the endemic equilibrium. Lyapunov functions are constructed to verify that both equilibria are individually robust with respect to perturbation of newborn/immigration rate which determines the eventual state of populations in epidemics. The construction and analysis are geometric and global in the space of the populations. In addition to the establishment of ISS, this paper shows how explicitly the constructed level sets reflect the flow of trajectories. Essential obstacles and keys for the construction of Lyapunov functions are elucidated. The proposed Lyapunov functions which have strictly negative derivative allow us to not only establish ISS, but also get rid of the use of LaSalle's invariance principle and popular simplifying assumptions.
