# Orthogonal polynomials and moment problem

2004
Topkara, Mustafa
The generalized moment of order k of a mass distribution sigma for a natural number k is given by integral of lambda to the power k with respect to mass distribution sigma and variable lambda. In extended moment problem, given a sequence of real numbers, it is required to find a mass distribution whose generalized moment of order k is k'th term of the sequence. The conditions of existence and uniqueness of the solution obtained by Hamburger are studied in this thesis by the use of orthogonal polynomials determined by a measure on real line. A chapter on the study of asymptotic behaviour of orthogonal functions on compact subsets of complex numbers is also included.

 Piecewise polynomials with different smoothness degrees on polyhedral complexes ALTINOK BHUPAL, SELMA; Sipahi, Neslihan Os (Informa UK Limited, 2019-05-01) For a given d-dimensional polyhedral complex Delta and a given degree k, we consider the vector space of piecewise polynomial functions on Delta of degree at most k with a different smoothness condition on each pair of adjacent d-faces of Delta. This is a finite dimensional vector space. The fundamental problem in Approximation Theory is to compute the dimension of this vector space. It is known that the dimension is given by a polynomial for sufficiently large k via commutative algebra. By using the techni...
 Invariant subspaces for Banach space operators with an annular spectral set Yavuz, Onur (2008-01-01) Consider an annulus Omega = {z epsilon C : r(0) 0 such that parallel to p(T)parallel to <= K sup{vertical bar p(lambda)vertical bar : vertical bar lambda vertical bar <= 1} and parallel to p(r(0)T(-1))parallel to <= K sup{vertical bar p(lambda)vertical bar : vertical bar lambda vertical bar <= 1} for all polynomials p. Then there exists a nontrivial common invariant subspace for T* and T*(-1).
 Stability criterion for second order linear impulsive differential equations with periodic coefficients Guseinov, G. Sh.; Zafer, Ağacık (Wiley, 2008-01-01) In this paper we obtain instability and stability criteria for second order linear impulsive differential equations with periodic coefficients. Further, a Lyapunov type inequality is also established. (C) 2008 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
 Hyperbolic conservation laws on manifolds. An error estimate for finite volume schemes Lefloch, Philippe G.; Okutmuştur, Baver; Neves, Wladimir (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-07-01) Following Ben-Artzi and LeFloch, we consider nonlinear hyperbolic conservation laws posed on a Riemannian manifold, and we establish an L (1)-error estimate for a class of finite volume schemes allowing for the approximation of entropy solutions to the initial value problem. The error in the L (1) norm is of order h (1/4) at most, where h represents the maximal diameter of elements in the family of geodesic triangulations. The proof relies on a suitable generalization of Cockburn, Coquel, and LeFloch's theo...
 On a Fitting length conjecture without the coprimeness condition Ercan, Gülin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-08-01) Let A be a finite nilpotent group acting fixed point freely by automorphisms on the finite solvable group G. It is conjectured that the Fitting length of G is bounded by the number of primes dividing the order of A, counted with multiplicities. The main result of this paper shows that the conjecture is true in the case where A is cyclic of order p (n) q, for prime numbers p and q coprime to 6 and G has abelian Sylow 2-subgroups.
