The boundedness of chaotic systems plays an important role in investigating the stability of the equilibrium, estimating the Lyapunov dimension of attractors, the Hausdorff dimension of attractors, the existence of periodic solutions, chaos control, and chaos synchronization. However, as far as the authors know, there are only a few papers dealing with bounds of high-order...

Understanding the infectious diseases outbreak of algae can provide significant knowledge for disease control intervention and/or prevention. We consider here a disease caused by highly pathogenic organisms that can result in the death of algae. Even though a great deal of understanding about diseases of algae has been reached, studies concerning effects of the outbreak at the...

Using variational methods, we study the existence and multiplicity of homoclinic solutions for a class of discrete Schrödinger equations in infinite m-dimensional lattices with nonlinearities being superlinear at infinity. Our results generalize some existing results in the literature by using some weaker conditions.

In this paper we introduce the concept of a PC-mild solution to a general new class of noninstantaneous impulsive fractional differential inclusions involving the generalized Caputo derivative with the lower bound at zero in infinite dimensional Banach spaces. Using the formula of a PC-mild solution, we give two classes of sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence of PC...

In this article, we propose an exponential B-spline approach to obtain approximate solutions for the fractional sub-diffusion equation of Caputo type. The presented method is established via a uniform nodal collocation strategy by using an exponential B-spline based interpolation in conjunction with an effective finite difference scheme in time. The unique solvability is...

In this paper, we study a coupled system of fractional boundary value problems subject to integral boundary conditions. By applying a recent fixed point theorem in ordered Banach spaces, we investigate the local existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for the coupled system. We show that the unique positive solution can be found in a product set, and that it can be...

The equivalent integral equation of a new form for a class of fractional evolution equations is obtained by the method of Laplace transform, which is different from those given in the existing literature. By the monotone iterative method without the assumption of lower and upper solutions, we present some new results on the existence of positive mild solutions for the abstract...

Meanwhile, we also give the exponential estimates and almost surely asymptotic estimates of solutions to...

In this paper, the existence of local and global Hopf bifurcation for a delay commodity market model is studied in detail. As time delay increases, the commodity price will fluctuate periodically. Furthermore, such fluctuations will occur even if the time delay is sufficiently large. MSC: 91B55, 34K18.

Integral conditions on the kernel, and for some degrees of the involved parameters, ensuring the nonexistence of global solutions are determined. Unlike the existing results, the source term considered is, in general, a convolution...

The paper develops a derivative-type (D-type) networked iterative learning control (NILC) scheme for repetitive discrete-time systems with packet dropouts stochastically occurred in input and output communication channels. The scheme generates the sequential recursive-mode control inputs by mending the dropped instant-wise output with the synchronous desired output, while it...
