Generalized parameter-free duality models in discrete minmax fractional programming based on second-order optimality conditions

Description: This article discusses the construction of six generalized second-order parameter-free duality models, and proves several weak, strong, and strict converse duality theorems for a discrete minmax fractional programming problem using two partitioning schemes and various types of generalized second-order (ℱ, β, ɸ, 𝜌, θ, 𝑚)-univexity assumptions.

Solution thermodynamics and preferential solvation of sulfamethazine in (methanol + water) mixtures

Description: This article discusses the determination of the solubility of sulfamethazine (SMT) in {methanol (1) + water (2)} co-solvent mixtures at five different temperatures from 293.15 K to 313.15 K. The Jouyban-Acree model was used to correlate/predict the solubility values.

A novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees

Description: In this paper, the authors discuss a novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees for quantitative traits. This method uses a retrospective view that treats the traits as fixed and the genotypes as random, which accounts for complex and undefined ascertainment of families.

Sturm bounds for Siegel modular forms

Description: This article establishes Sturm bounds for degree g Siegel modular forms modulo a prime p, which are vital for explicit computations. This includes an inductive proof that exploits Fourier-Jacobi expansions of Siegel modular forms and properties of specializations of Jacobi forms to torsion points.

Stochastics and thermodynamics for equilibrium measures of holomorphic endomorphisms on complex projective spaces

Description: This article proves that the dynamical system (f,μφ) enjoys exponential decay of correlations of Hölder continuous observables as well as the Central Limit Theorem and the Law of Iterated Logarithm for the class of these variables that, in addition, satisfy a natural co-boundary condition. This article also shows that the topological pressure function t ↦ P(tφ) is real-analytic throughout the open set of all parameters t for which the potentials tφ have pressure gaps.
