Flux identification for 1d scalar conservation laws in the presence of shocks
(20111231)We consider the problem of flux identification for 1d scalar conservation laws formulating it as an optimal control problem. We introduce a new optimization strategy to compute numerical approximations of minimizing fluxes. ... 
Fracture Surfaces and the Regularity of Inverses for BV Deformations
(20111231)Motivated by nonlinear elasticity theory, we study deformations that are approximately differentiable, orientationpreserving and onetoone almost everywhere, and in addition have finite surface energy. This surface energy ... 
Full characterization of the fractional Poisson process
(20111231)The fractional Poisson process (FPP) is a counting process with independent and identically distributed interevent times following the MittagLeffler distribution. This process is very useful in several fields of applied ... 
Generation of twodimensional water waves by moving bottom disturbances
(20141231)In this study we investigate the potential and limitations of the wave genera tion by disturbances moving at the bottom. More precisely, we assume that the wavemaker is composed of an underwater object of a given shape ... 
Global Attractor for a Generalized Discrete Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation

(20141231)In this paper, we study the problem of controllability of Schrödinger equation. We prove that the system is exactly controllable in infinite time to any po sition. The proof is based on an inverse mapping theorem for ... 
Gradientbased optimization techniques for the design of static controllers for Markov jump linear systems with unobservable modes
