We establish the bounds 4 on the Nordhaus- Gaddum sum upper bound multipliers for all graphs G, in connections with certain Colin de Verdi ere type graph parameters. The Nordhaus-Gaddum sum lower bound is conjectured ...

The fixed-point iteration is a simple method for finding the maximal Hermitian positive definite solutions of the matrix equations $X\pm A^*X^{-1}A=I$ (the plus/minus equations). The convergence of this method ...
• (Elsevier, 2012)
The Green's function approach for treating quantum transport in nano devices requires the solution of nonlinear matrix equations of the form $X+(C^*+{\rm i} \eta D^*)X^{-1}(C+{\rm i} \eta D)=R+{\rm i}\eta P$, where $R$ ...
• (SIAM, 2012)
The matrix equation $X+A^{T}X^{-1}A=Q$ arises in Green's function calculations in nano research, where $A$ is a real square matrix and $Q$ is a real symmetric matrix dependent on a parameter and is usually indefinite. ...
• (Elsevier, 2013)
We consider the algebraic Riccati equation for which the four coefficient matrices form an $M$-matrix $K$. When $K$ is a nonsingular $M$-matrix or an irreducible singular $M$-matrix, the Riccati equation is known to have ...

User's choices involve habitual behavior and genuine decisions. Habitual behavior is often represented using preferences. The conditional preference network (CP-net) is a graphical tool for representing and reasoning about ...
• (Elsevier, 2010)
If $A$ is a matrix with no negative real eigenvalues and all zero eigenvalues of $A$ are semisimple, the principal $p$th root of $A$ can be computed by Newton's method or Halley's method, with a preprocessing procedure ...
• (Elsevier, 2015)
The positive semidefinite zero forcing number of a graph is a graph parameter that arises from a non-traditional type of graph colouring and is related to a more conventional version of zero forcing. We establish a relation ...
• (The Charles Babbage Research Centre, 2013-02)
In this work, we study the structure of the null spaces of matrices associated with graphs. Our primary tool is utilizing Schur complements based on certain collections of independent vertices. This idea is applied in ...
• (2014)
The zero forcing number and the positive zero forcing number of a graph are two graph parameters that arise from two types of graph colourings. The zero forcing number is an upper bound on the minimum number of induced ...
• (Springer, 2014-06)
There is a large gap between attitude and action when it comes to consumer purchases of ethical food. Amongst the various aspects of this gap, this paper focuses on the difficulty in knowing enough about the various ...
• (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2013)
Tree-width, and variants that restrict the allowable tree decompositions, play an important role in the study of graph algorithms and have application to computer science. The zero forcing number is used to study the ...
• (Oxford University Press, 2014)
A new class of complex nonsymmetric algebraic Riccati equations has been studied by Liu and Xue (SIAM J. Matrix Anal. Appl., 33 (2012), 569-596), which is related to the M-matrix algebraic Riccati equations. Doubling ...

The North Qoroq centre comprises a series of nested nepheline syenite intrusions and forms part of the midlate Proterozoic Gardar province of South Greenland. Within the centre fractionation has produced varied rock types ...

Given an n-by-n matrix, its principal rank characteristic sequence is a sequence of length n + 1 of 0s and 1s where, for k = 0; 1,..., n, a 1 in the kth position indicates the existence of a principal submatrix of rank ...

Taking into account relationships between interacting objects can improve the understanding of the dynamic model governing their behaviors. Moreover, maintaining a belief about the ongoing activity while tracking allows ...

In studying the vibration of fast trains, we encounter a palindromic quadratic eigenvalue problem (QEP) $(\lambda^2 A^T + \lambda Q + A)z = 0$, where $A, Q \in \mathbb{C}^{n \times n}$ and $Q^T = Q$. Moreover, the matrix ...

The card sorting problem involves the similarity judgments of pairs of photos, taken from a set of photos, by a group of participants. Given the lack of an objective standard for judging similarity, different participants ...
