Dual sufficient characterizations of transversality properties

**Authors:**Cuong, Nguyen , Kruger, Alexander**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Positivity Vol. 24, no. 5 (2020), p. 1313-1359**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**This paper continues the study of ‘good arrangements’ of collections of sets near a point in their intersection. Our aim is to develop a general scheme for quantitative analysis of several transversality properties within the same framework. We consider a general nonlinear setting and establish dual (subdifferential and normal cone) sufficient characterizations of transversality properties of collections of sets in Banach/Asplund spaces. Besides quantitative estimates for the rates/moduli of the corresponding properties, we establish here also estimates for the other parameters involved in the definitions, particularly the size of the neighbourhood where a property holds. Interpretations of the main general nonlinear characterizations for the case of Hölder transversality are provided. Some characterizations are new even in the linear setting. As an application, we provide dual sufficient conditions for nonlinear extensions of the new transversality properties of a set-valued mapping to a set in the range space due to Ioffe. © 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.**Description:**The research was supported by the Australian Research Council, Project DP160100854, and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sk

Embeddings of free topological vector spaces

**Authors:**Leiderman, Arkady , Morris, Sidney**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society Vol. 101, no. 2 (2020), p. 311-324**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**It is proved that the free topological vector space contains an isomorphic copy of the free topological vector space for every finite-dimensional cube , thereby answering an open question in the literature. We show that this result cannot be extended from the closed unit interval to general metrisable spaces. Indeed, we prove that the free topological vector space does not even have a vector subspace isomorphic as a topological vector space to , where is a Cook continuum, which is a one-dimensional compact metric space. This is also shown to be the case for a rigid Bernstein set, which is a zero-dimensional subspace of the real line. © 2019 Australian Mathematical Publishing Association Inc..

Energy sector development : system dynamics analysis

**Authors:**Laimon, Mohamd , Mai, Thanh , Goh, Steven , Yusaf, Talal**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Applied Sciences-Basel Vol. 10, no. 1 (Jan 2020), p. 19**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**The development of a complex and dynamic system such as the energy sector requires a comprehensive understanding of its constituent components and their interactions, and thus requires approaches that can adapt to the dynamic complexity in systems. Previous efforts mainly used reductionist approaches, which examine the components of the system in isolation, neglecting their interdependent nature. Such approaches reduce our ability to understand the system and/or mitigate undesirable outcomes. We adopt a system dynamics approach to construct an integrated model for analysing the behaviour of the energy sector. Although the Australian energy sector is used as a case study, the model can be applied in other context elsewhere around the world The results indicate that the current trajectory of the Australian energy sector is unsustainable and growth is not being controlled. Limits to growth are fast approaching due to excessive fossil fuel extraction, high emissions and high energy dependency. With the current growth, Australia's global CO2 emissions footprint will increase to unprecedented levels reaching 12% by 2030 (9.5% for exports and 2.5% for domestic). Oil dependency will account for 43% and 47% of total consumption by 2030 and 2050. By 2032, coal will be the only fossil fuel resource available in Australia. Expansion of investment in coal and gas production is a large risk.

In the first part of this paper, we prove that alternating sequences of any continuous function are finite in any given segment and then propose an original approach to obtain new proofs of the well known necessary and sufficient optimality conditions. There are two main advantages of this approach. First of all, the proofs are intuitive and easy to understand. Second, these proofs are constructive and therefore they lead to new alternation-based algorithms. In the second part of this paper, we develop new local optimality conditions for free knot polynomial spline approximation. The proofs for free knot approximation are relying on the techniques developed in the first part of this paper. The piecewise polynomials are required to be continuous on the approximation segment. © 2020, Springer Nature B.V.

Bacterial concentration, quantitative polymerase chain reactions, and sequencing were performed on water samples and identified Acidobacteria, Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes, Chlorobi, Chloroflexi, Cyanobacteria, Firmicutes, Nitrospirae, Planctomycetes, Proteobacteria, and Verrucomicrobia. The spatial model tessellated the parts of the Bay of Bengal with hexagons and analyzed the relationship between the distribution of bacteria and water temperature. A geographically weighted regression was used to observe whether water temperature contributed strongly or weakly to the distribution of bacteria. The residuals were examined to assess the model's fitness. The spatial model has the potential to predict the bacterial diversity in the selected regions of Bangladesh. © 2020 by the authors.

Such systems include, e.g., quasi-variational inequalities and implicit complementarity problems. Concerning the Aubin property, possible restrictions imposed on the parameter are also admitted. Throughout the paper, tools from the directional limiting generalized differential calculus are employed enabling us to impose only rather weak (non- restrictive) qualification conditions.

The non-smooth and bi-objective team orienteering problem with soft constraints

**Authors:**Estrada-Moreno, Alejandro , Ferrer, Albert , Juan, Angel , Panadero, Javier , Bagirov, Adil**Date:**2020**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Mathematics Vol. 8, no. 9 (2020), p.**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**In the classical team orienteering problem (TOP), a fixed fleet of vehicles is employed, each of them with a limited driving range. The manager has to decide about the subset of customers to visit, as well as the visiting order (routes). Each customer offers a different reward, which is gathered the first time that it is visited. The goal is then to maximize the total reward collected without exceeding the driving range constraint. This paper analyzes a more realistic version of the TOP in which the driving range limitation is considered as a soft constraint: every time that this range is exceeded, a penalty cost is triggered. This cost is modeled as a piece-wise function, which depends on factors such as the distance of the vehicle to the destination depot. As a result, the traditional reward-maximization objective becomes a non-smooth function. In addition, a second objective, regarding the design of balanced routing plans, is considered as well. A mathematical model for this non-smooth and bi-objective TOP is provided, and a biased-randomized algorithm is proposed as a solving approach. © 2020 by the authors.**Description:**This work has been partially supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness & FEDER (SEV-2015-0563), the Spanish Ministry of Science (PID2019-111100RB-C21, RED2018-102642-T), and the Erasmus+ Program (2019-I-ES01-KA103-062602).

This cost is modeled as a piece-wise function, which depends on factors such as the distance of the vehicle to the destination depot. As a result, the traditional reward-maximization objective becomes a non-smooth function. In addition, a second objective, regarding the design of balanced routing plans, is considered as well. A mathematical model for this non-smooth and bi-objective TOP is provided, and a biased-randomized algorithm is proposed as a solving approach. © 2020 by the authors.**Description:**This work has been partially supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness & FEDER (SEV-2015-0563), the Spanish Ministry of Science (PID2019-111100RB-C21, RED2018-102642-T), and the Erasmus+ Program (2019-I-ES01-KA103-062602).

In variational analysis, well-posedness is often understood as a regularity property, which is usually employed to measure the effect of perturbations and approximations of a problem on its solutions. In this paper we focus on evaluating the radius of the property of metric subregularity which, in contrast to its siblings, metric regularity, strong regularity and strong subregularity, exhibits a more complicated behavior under various perturbations. We consider three kinds of perturbations: by Lipschitz continuous functions, by semismooth functions, and by smooth functions, obtaining different expressions/bounds for the radius of subregularity, which involve generalized derivatives of set-valued mappings. We also obtain different expressions when using either Frobenius or Euclidean norm to measure the radius. As an application, we evaluate the radius of subregularity of a general constraint system. Examples illustrate the theoretical findings. © 2019, Springer Nature B.V.**Description:**Funding details: Austrian Science Fund, FWF, P26132-N25, P26640-N25, P29190-N32 Funding details: National Science Foundation, NSF Funding details: Australian Research Council, ARC Funding details: Australian Research Council, ARC, DP160100854 Funding details: Austrian Science Fund, FWF Funding details: Universiteit Stellenbosch, US, P26640-N25 P26132-N25, BodyRef/PDF/11228_2019_Article_523.pdf Funding details: Grantová Agentura

A remark on the separable quotient problem for topological groups

**Authors:**Morris, Sidney**Date:**2019**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society Vol. 100, no. 3 (Dec 2019), p. 453-457**Full Text:**false**Reviewed:****Description:**The Banach-Mazur separable quotient problem asks whether every infinite-dimensional Banach space B has a quotient space that is an infinite-dimensional separable Banach space. The question has remained open for over 80 years, although an affirmative answer is known in special cases such as when B is reflexive or even a dual of a Banach space. Very recently, it has been shown to be true for dual-like spaces. An analogous problem for topological groups is: Does every infinite-dimensional (in the topological sense) connected (Hausdorff) topological group G have a quotient topological group that is infinite dimensional and metrisable? While this is known to be true if G is the underlying topological group of an infinite-dimensional Banach space, it is shown here to be false even if G is the underlying topological group of an infinite-dimensional locally convex space. Indeed, it is shown that the free topological vector space on any countably infinite k(omega)-space is an infinite-dimensional toplogical vector space which does not have any quotient topological group that is infinite dimensional and metrisable. By contrast, the Graev free abelian topological group and the Graev free topological group on any infinite connected Tychonoff space, both of which are connected topological groups, are shown here to have the tubby torus T-omega, which is an infinite-dimensional metrisable group, as a quotient group.

**Authors:**Benko, Matúš , Gfrerer, Helmut , Outrata, Jiri**Date:**2019**Type:**Text , Journal article**Relation:**Set-Valued and Variational Analysis Vol. 27, no. 3 (2019), p. 713-745**Full Text:****Reviewed:****Description:**The paper is devoted to the development of a comprehensive calculus for directional limiting normal cones, subdifferentials and coderivatives in finite dimensions. This calculus encompasses the whole range of the standard generalized differential calculus for (non-directional) limiting notions and relies on very weak (non-restrictive) qualification conditions having also a directional character. The derived rules facilitate the application of tools exploiting the directional limiting notions to difficult problems of variational analysis including, for instance, various stability and sensitivity issues. This is illustrated by some selected applications in the last part of the paper.
