Accurate numerical bounds for the spectral points of singular Sturm-Liouville problems over 0 < x < infinity

The eigenvalues of singular Sturm-Liouville problems defined over the semi-infinite positive real axis are examined on a truncated interval 0<x<l as functions of the boundary point l. As a basic theoretical result, it is shown that the eigenvalues of the truncated interval problems satisfying Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions provide, respectively, upper and lower bounds to the eigenvalues of the original problem. Moreover, the unperturbed system in a perturbation problem, where l remains sufficiently small, admits analytical solutions in terms of the Bessel functions of the first kind. Applications to the Schrodinger equations of diatomic molecules and a harmonic oscillator confirm the practical implementation of this approach in calculating highly accurate numerical eigenvalue enclosures. It is worth mentioning that this study is, therefore, a completion of the paper (J. Comput. Appl. Math. 115 (2000) 535) where similar problems on the whole real axis -infinity<x<infinity were treated along the same lines.


Nonlinear oscillation of second-order dynamic equations on time scales
Anderson, Douglas R.; Zafer, Ağacık (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
Interval oscillation criteria are established for a second-order nonlinear dynamic equation on time scales by utilizing a generalized Riccati technique and the Young inequality. The theory can be applied to second-order dynamic equations regardless of the choice of delta or nabla derivatives.
Least-squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of diffusive-convective problems
Bozkaya, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Least-squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in diffusive-convective type problems with variable coefficients. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, which is easy to implement computation ally. The terms except the Laplacian are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation, which ar...

It is shown that the second-order nonlinear differential equation
Manguoğlu, Murat (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2019-01-01)
We propose a two-level nested preconditioned iterative scheme for solving sparse linear systems of equations in which the coefficient matrix is symmetric and indefinite with a relatively small number of negative eigenvalues. The proposed scheme consists of an outer minimum residual (MINRES) iteration, preconditioned by an inner conjugate gradient (CG) iteration in which CG can be further preconditioned. The robustness of the proposed scheme is illustrated by solving indefinite linear systems that arise in t...
Dynamic programming for a Markov-switching jump-diffusion
Azevedo, N.; Pinheiro, D.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2014-09-01)
We consider an optimal control problem with a deterministic finite horizon and state variable dynamics given by a Markov-switching jump-diffusion stochastic differential equation. Our main results extend the dynamic programming technique to this larger family of stochastic optimal control problems. More specifically, we provide a detailed proof of Bellman's optimality principle (or dynamic programming principle) and obtain the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Belman equation, which turns out to be a partial in...
