Instability, Rupture and Fluctuations in Thin Liquid Films: Theory and Computations

requires fluctuations to be taken into account self-consistently. In this work we present an analytical and numerical study of a stochastic thin-film equation derived from first principles. Following a brief ... provides a general theoretical and numerical apparatus that will be relevant in a wide variety of natural processes which involve a similar stochastic gradient-flow structure. In the same spirit, we believe

Model-based production cost estimation to support bid processes: an automotive case study

mechanisms to improve the decentralized approach. To capture the uncertainty during the bid process, associated with key parameters like demand, capacity consumption and cost, we formulate a stochastic version ... . First, we focus on decentralized decision making and analyze different organizational structures to deal with that issue. Second, we introduce a stochastic, recourse based formulation of the problem and

Compositional abstraction of CSP Z processes

Data abstraction is a powerful technique to overcome state explosion in model checking. For CSPZ (a formal integration of the well-known specification languages CSP and Z), current approaches can ... emphasize that our approach is applied to a CSPZ process in isolation; we split the data (Z) part into a data dependent and a data independent part. We can also apply the approach to all CSPZ processes

Probability in quantum mechanics

By using a fluid theory which is an alternative to quantum theory but from which the latter can be deduced exactly, the long-standing problem of how quantum mechanics is related to stochastic ... Brownian motion [4] or some variant of Brownian motion [5]. The reason for this direction of the stochastic search is the analogy between the shape of the simple Schrodinger equation, t 2m x2 (1.2) and the

On Markovian cocycle perturbations in classical and quantum probability

We introduce Markovian cocycle perturbations of the groups of transformations associated with classical and quantum stochastic processes with stationary increments, which are characterized by a ... theory of cohomology of groups can describe the set of all functionals from the classical and quantum stochastic processes with the stationary independent increments. 6.1. The Wiener process. Consider the

Control theory in biology and medicine

From September–December 2017, the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State University hosted a series of workshops on control theory in biology and medicine, including workshops on control ... of the participants in the MBI workshops. Control theory is a mathematically oriented discipline within engineering that concerns the design and analysis of systems for the regulation of physical

An application of the nonselfadjoint operators theory in the study of stochastic processes

As a generalization, we represent the infinitesimal correlation function (ICF) of a nonhomogeneous linearly representable stochastic ... Hindawi Publishing Corporation Journal of Applied Mathematics and Stochastic Analysis The theory of operator colligations in Hilbert spaces gives rise to certain models for nonselfadjoint

On processes of conflict "environmentalization

of environmentalization implies changes both in the State and in the behavior of people at work, in their daily lives and leisure. Such processes are analyzed in order to frame the environmental issue ... processes newly perceived as important, such as "curialization" – the formation of European court societies between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries – or "sportification", starting in nineteenth
