    Rational Bernoulli functions for solving problems on unbounded domains
    Velinda Calvert, Mathematics, Msstate,

    Title:  Rational Bernoulli functions for solving problems on unbounded domains

    Abstract: A new numerical method for solving some problems on the semi-infinite domain is presented. The method is based upon the modified rational Bernoulli functions. These functions are first introduced. Operational matrices of derivative and product of modified rational Bernoulli functions are then derived and are utilized to reduce the solution of the equations to a system of algebraic equations. This method is used to solve the following problems: Lane-Emden type equations, Volterra's population model, Blasius equation, and MHD Falkner-Skan equation. Illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique.

    Groups of isometries associated with automorphisms of the half-plane
    Job Bonyo, Mathematics, Msstate,

    Title:  Groups of isometries associated with automorphisms of the half-plane
    Abstract:  The study of integral operators on spaces of analytic functions has been considered for the past few decades. However, most of the studies in this line are based on spaces of analytic functions of the unit disc. For the analytic spaces of the upper half-plane, the literature is still scanty. Most notable is the recent work of Siskakis and Arvanitidis concerning the classical Cesaro operator on Hardy spaces of the upper half-plane. In this dissertation, we characterize all continuous one-parameter groups of automorphisms of the upper half-plane according to the nature and location of their fixed points into three distinct classes, namely, the scaling, the translation, and the rotation groups. We then introduce the associated groups of weighted composition operators on both Hardy and weighted Bergman spaces of the half-plane. Interestingly, it turns out that these groups of composition operators form three strongly continuous groups of isometries. A detailed analysis of each of these groups of isometries is carried out. Specifically, we determine the spectral properties of the generators of every group, and using both spectral and semigroup theory of Banach spaces, we obtain concrete representations of the resolvents as integral operators on both Hardy and Bergman spaces of the half-plane. For the scaling group, the resulting resolvent operators are exactly the Cesaro-like operators. The spectral properties of the obtained integral operators is also determined. Finally, we detail the theory of both Szego and Bergman projections of the half-plane, and use it to determine the duality properties of these spaces. Consequently, we obtain the adjoints of the resolvent operators on the reflexive Hardy and Bergman spaces of the half-plane.
