#### On the classification of scalar evolution equations with non-constant separant

(IOP Publishing Ltd, 2017)

The ` separant' of the evolution equation u(t) = F where F is some differentiable function of the derivatives of u up to order m is the partial derivative partial derivative F/partial derivative u(m) where um u(m) = partial ...

#### The critical point of a sigmoidal curve

(Babeș-Bolyai University, 2020)

Let y(t) be a monotone increasing curve with lim(t ->+/-infinity) y((n))(t) = 0 for all n and let t(n) be the location of the global extremum of the nth derivative y((n))(t). Under certain assumptions on the Fourier and ...

#### Determination of epidemic parameters from early phase fatality data: A case study of the 2009 A(H1N1) pandemic in Europe

(World Scientific Publ Co Pte Ltd, 2018)

This paper demonstrates that the susceptible-infected-removed (SIR) model applied to the early phase of an epidemic can be used to determine epidemic parameters reliably. As a case study the SIR model is applied to the ...

#### An Overview of the 2009 A(H1N1) Pandemic in Europe: Efficiency of the Vaccination and Healthcare Strategies

(Hindawi Ltd, 2016)

2009 A(H1N1) data for 13 European countries obtained from the weekly influenza surveillance overview (WISO) reports of European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) in the form of weekly cumulative fatalities ...

#### Epidemic models for phase transitions: application to a physical gel

(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2017)

Carrageenan gels are characterized by reversible sol-gel and gel-sol transitions under cooling and heating processes and these transitions are approximated by generalized logistic growth curves. We express the transitions ...

#### Mathematical Characterization of Thermo-reversible Phase Transitions of Agarose Gels

(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2018)

The thermal phase transition temperatures of high (HMP) and low melting point (LMP) agarose gels were investigated by using UV-vis spectroscopy techniques. Transmitted light intensities from the gel samples with different ...

#### An equivalence class decomposition of finite metric spaces via Gromov products

(Elsevier Science Bv, 2017)

Let (X, d) be a finite metric space with elements P-i, i = 1,..., n and with the distance functions d(ij) The Gromov Product of the "triangle" (P-i, P-j, P-k) with vertices P-t, P-j and P-k at the vertex Pi is defined by ...

#### Self-duality in higher dimensions

(IOP Publishing Ltd, 2017)

Let w be a 2-form on a 2n dimensional manifold. In previous work, we called w "strong self-dual, if the eigenvalues of its matrix with respect to an orthonormal frame are equal in absolute value. In a series of papers, we ...

#### What Can We Estimate From Fatality and Infectious Case Data Using the Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) Model? A Case Study of Covid-19 Pandemic

(Frontıers Medıa Sa, 2020)

The rapidly spreading Covid-19 that affected almost all countries, was first reported at the end of 2019. As a consequence of its highly infectious nature, countries all over the world have imposed extremely strict measures ...

#### Modeling of Wind Effects on Stratified Flows in Open Channels: A Model for the Istanbul Strait (Bosphorus)

(2016)

Stratified flows in open channels arise as a result of density or surface level differences. If the channel is connected to a basin at one or both ends, strong winds originating from the basin cause the "wind setup" effect ...
