Abstract: Schrödinger operators with nonlocal \(\delta\)-interaction are studied with the use of the Lax-Phillips scattering theory methods. The condition of applicability of the Lax-Phillips approach in terms of non-cyclic functions is established. Two formulas for the \(S\)-matrix are obtained. The first one deals with the Krein-Naimark resolvent formula and the Weyl-Titchmarsh function, whereas the second one is based on modified reflection and transmission coefficients. The \(S\)-matrix \(S(z)\) is analytical in the lower half-plane \(\mathbb{C}_{−}\) when the Schrödinger operator with nonlocal \(\delta\)-interaction is positive self-adjoint. Otherwise, \(S(z)\) is a meromorphic matrix-valued function in \(\mathbb{C}_{−}\) and its properties are closely related to the properties of the corresponding Schrödinger operator. Examples of \(S\)-matrices are given. Keywords: Lax-Phillips scattering scheme, scattering matrix, \(S\)-matrix, nonlocal \(\delta\)-interaction, non-cyclic function.

Abstract: Let \(A\) and \(\tilde{A}\) be bounded operators in a Hilbert space. We consider the following problem: let the spectrum of \(A\) lie in some strip. In what strip the spectrum of \(\tilde{A}\) lies if \(A\) and \(\tilde{A}\) are "close"? Applications of the obtained results to integral operators and matrices are also discussed. In addition, we apply our perturbation results to approximate the spectral strip of a Hilbert-Schmidt operator by the spectral strips of finite matrices.

Abstract: Given a dissipative operator \(A\) on a complex Hilbert space \(\mathcal{H}\) such that the quadratic form \(f \mapsto \text{Im}\langle f, Af \rangle\) is closable, we give a necessary and sufficient condition for an extension of \(A\) to still be dissipative.

Abstract: In this paper, we consider finite dimensional vector spaces \(\mathbb{H}^n\) over the ring \(\mathbb{H}\) of all quaternions. In particular, we are interested in certain functions acting on \(\mathbb{H}^n\), and corresponding functional equations. Our main results show that (i) all quaternions of \(\mathbb{H}\) are classified by the spectra of their realizations under representation, (ii) all vectors of \(\mathbb{H}^n\) are classified by a canonical extended setting of (i), and (iii) the usual spectral analysis on the matricial ring \(M_n(\mathbb{C})\) of all \((n \times n)\)-matrices over the complex numbers \(\mathbb{C}\) has close connections with certain "non-linear" functional equations on \(\mathbb{H}^n\) up to the classification of (ii).

Abstract: In 1870 G. Cantor proved that if \(\lim_{N \rightarrow \infty}\sum_{n=-N}^N c_{n}e^{inx} = 0\), \(\bar{c}_{n}=c_{n}\), then \(c_{n}=0\) for \(n\in\mathbb{Z}\). In 2004 G. Gevorkyan raised the issue that if Cantor's result extends to the Franklin system. He solved this conjecture in 2015. In 2014 Z. Wronicz proved that there exists a Franklin series for which a subsequence of its partial sums converges to zero, where not all coefficients of the series are zero. In the present paper we show that to the uniqueness of the Franklin system \(\lim_{n\rightarrow \infty}\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_{n}f_{n}\) it suffices to prove the convergence its subsequence \(s_{2^{n}}\) to zero by the condition \(a_{n}=o(\sqrt{n})\). It is a solution of the Gevorkyan problem formulated in 2016. Keywords: Franklin system, orthonormal spline system, uniqueness of series. Mathematics Subject Classification: 42C10, 42C25, 41A15.

Abstract: Let \(G\) be a graph with vertex set \(V(G)\). If \(u\in V(G)\), then \(N[u]\) is the closed neighborhood of \(u\). An outer-independent double Italian dominating function (OIDIDF) on a graph \(G\) is a function \(f:V(G)\longrightarrow \{0,1,2,3\}\) such that if \(f(v)\in\{0,1\}\) for a vertex \(v\in V(G)\), then \(\sum_{x\in N[v]}f(x)\ge 3\), and the set \(\{u\in V(G):f(u)=0\}\) is independent. The weight of an OIDIDF \(f\) is the sum \(\sum_{v\in V(G)}f(v)\). The outer-independent double Italian domination number \(\gamma_{oidI}(G)\) equals the minimum weight of an OIDIDF on \(G\). In this paper we present Nordhaus-Gaddum type bounds on the outer-independent double Italian domination number which improved corresponding results given in [F. Azvin, N. Jafari Rad, L. Volkmann, Bounds on the outer-independent double Italian domination number, Commun. Comb. Optim. 6 (2021), 123-136]. Furthermore, we determine the outer-independent double Italian domination number of some families of graphs.

Abstract: We introduce and study the dominated edge coloring of a graph. A dominated edge coloring of a graph \(G\), is a proper edge coloring of \(G\) such that each color class is dominated by at least one edge of \(G\). The minimum number of colors among all dominated edge coloring is called the dominated edge chromatic number, denoted by \(\chi_{dom}^{\prime}(G)\). We obtain some properties of \(\chi_{dom}^{\prime}(G)\) and compute it for specific graphs. Also examine the effects on \(\chi_{dom}^{\prime}(G)\), when \(G\) is modified by operations on vertex and edge of \(G\). Finally, we consider the \(k\)-subdivision of \(G\) and study the dominated edge chromatic number of these kind of graphs. Keywords: dominated edge chromatic number, subdivision, operation, corona.

Abstract: In this paper we consider a retained digits Cantor set \(T\) based on digit expansions with Gaussian integer base. Let \(F\) be the set all \(x\) such that the intersection of \(T\) with its translate by \(x\) is non-empty and let \(F_{\beta}\) be the subset of \(F\) consisting of all \(x\) such that the dimension of the intersection of \(T\) with its translate by \(x\) is \(\beta\) times the dimension of \(T\). We find conditions on the retained digits sets under which \(F_{\beta}\) is dense in \(F\) for all \(0\leq\beta\leq 1\). The main novelty in this paper is that multiplication the Gaussian integer base corresponds to an irrational (in fact transcendental) rotation in the complex plane.

Abstract: We consider a bounded domain \(\Omega\) of \(\mathbb{R}^N\), \(N \geq 3\), \(h\) and \(b\) continuous functions on \(\Omega\). Let \(\Gamma\) be a closed curve contained in \(\Omega\). We study existence of positive solutions \(u \in H^1_0(\Omega)\) to the perturbed Hardy-Sobolev equation: \[-\Delta u+hu+bu^{1+\delta}=\rho^{-\sigma}_{\Gamma} u^{2^*_{\sigma}-1} \quad \textrm{ in } \Omega,\] where \(2^*_{\sigma}:=\frac{2(N-\sigma)}{N-2}\) is the critical Hardy-Sobolev exponent, \(\sigma\in [0,2)\), \(0\lt\delta\lt\frac{4}{N-2}\) and \(\rho_{\Gamma}\) is the distance function to \(\Gamma\). We show that the existence of minimizers does not depend on the local geometry of \(\Gamma\) nor on the potential \(h\). For \(N=3\), the existence of ground-state solution may depends on the trace of the regular part of the Green function of \(-\Delta+h\) and or on \(b\). This is due to the perturbative term of order \(1+\delta\). Keywords: Hardy-Sobolev inequality, positive minimizers, parametrized curve, mass, Green function.

Abstract: The crossing number \(\mathrm{cr}(G)\) of a graph \(G\) is the minimum number of edge crossings over all drawings of \(G\) in the plane. The main aim of the paper is to give the crossing number of the join product \(W_4+P_n\) and \(W_4+C_n\) for the wheel \(W_4\) on five vertices, where \(P_n\) and \(C_n\) are the path and the cycle on \(n\) vertices, respectively. Yue et al. conjectured that the crossing number of \(W_m+C_n\) is equal to \(Z(m+1)Z(n)+(Z(m)-1) \big \lfloor \frac{n}{2} \big \rfloor + n+ \big\lceil\frac{m}{2}\big\rceil +2\), for all \(m,n \geq 3\), and where the Zarankiewicz's number \(Z(n)=\big \lfloor \frac{n}{2} \big \rfloor \big \lfloor \frac{n-1}{2} \big \rfloor\) is defined for \(n\geq 1\). Recently, this conjecture was proved for \(W_3+C_n\) by Klešč. We establish the validity of this conjecture for \(W_4+C_n\) and we also offer a new conjecture for the crossing number of the join product \(W_m+P_n\) for \(m\geq 3\) and \(n\geq 2\).

Abstract: In this paper we deal with the following problem \[\begin{cases}-\sum\limits_{i=1}^{N}\left[ \left( a+b\int\limits_{\, \Omega }\left\vert \partial _{i}u\right\vert ^{p_{i}}dx\right) \partial _{i}\left( \left\vert \partial _{i}u\right\vert ^{p_{i}-2}\partial _{i}u\right) \right]=\frac{f(x)}{u^{\gamma }}\pm g(x)u^{q-1} & in\ \Omega, \\ u\geq 0 & in\ \Omega, \\ u=0 & on\ \partial \Omega, \end{cases}\] where \(\Omega\) is a bounded regular domain in \(\mathbb{R}^{N}\). We will assume without loss of generality that \(1\leq p_{1}\leq p_{2}\leq \ldots\leq p_{N}\) and that \(f\) and \(g\) are non-negative functions belonging to a suitable Lebesgue space \(L^{m}(\Omega)\), \(1\lt q\lt \overline{p}^{\ast}\), \(a\gt 0\), \(b\gt 0\) and \(0\lt\gamma \lt 1.\) Keywords: anisotropic operator, integro-differential problem, variational methods.
