Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The study of differential equations is useful for understanding natural phenomena. In this Special Issue, we aim to present the latest research on the properties of ODE (Ordinary Differential Equations) and PDE (Partial Differential Equations) related to different techniques for finding solutions and methods describing the nature of these solutions or their related approximations.

In addition, we welcome papers on numerical aspects using classical or non-standard approaches, for example, the concepts and related formalism of special functions. Furthermore, articles on fractional differential equations are of interest, as are contributions related to the symmetry approach to problems of integrability in the field of differential equations.

In this paper, sufficient conditions ensuring existence and multiplicity of positive solutions for a class of nonlinear singular fractional differential systems are derived with Riemann–Stieltjes coupled integral boundary value conditions in Banach Spaces. Nonlinear functions f(t,u,v) and g(t,u,v) in the considered systems are allowed to be singular at every variable. The boundary conditions here are coupled forms with Riemann–Stieltjes integrals. In order to overcome the difficulties arising from the singularity, a suitable cone is constructed through the properties of Green’s functions associated with the systems. The main tool used in the present paper is the fixed point theorem on cone. Lastly, an example is offered to show the effectiveness of our obtained new results. Full article

This article deals with finite-time quenching for the system of coupled semi-linear heat equations ut=uxx+f(v) and vt=vxx+g(u), for (x,t)(0,1)×(0,T), where f and g are given functions. The system has the homogeneous Neumann boundary conditions and the bounded nonnegative initial conditions that are compatible with the boundary conditions. The existence result is established by using the method of upper and lower solutions. We obtain sufficient conditions for finite time quenching of solutions. The quenching set is also provided. From the quenching set, it implies that the quenching solution has asymmetric profile. We prove the blow-up of time-derivatives when quenching occurs. We also find the criteria to identify simultaneous and non-simultaneous quenching of solutions. For non-simultaneous quenching, the corresponding quenching rate of solutions is given. Full article

In many engineering problems associated with various physical phenomena, there occurs a necessity of analysis of signals that are described by multidimensional functions of more than one variable such as time t or space coordinates x, y, z. Therefore, in such cases, we should consider dynamical models of two or more dimensions. In this paper, a new two-dimensional (2D) model described by the Roesser type of state-space equations will be considered. In the introduced model, partial differential operators described by the Conformable Fractional Derivative (CFD) definition with respect to the first (horizontal) and second (vertical) variables will be applied. For the model under consideration, the general response formula is derived using the inverse fractional Laplace method. Next, the properties of the solution will be considered. Usefulness of the general response formula will be discussed and illustrated by a numerical example. Full article

This work is devoted to the modeling and investigation of the architecture design for the delayed recurrent neural network, based on the delayed differential equations. The usage of discrete and distributed delays makes it possible to model the calculation of the next states using internal memory, which corresponds to the artificial recurrent neural network architecture used in the field of deep learning. The problem of exponential stability of the models of recurrent neural networks with multiple discrete and distributed delays is considered. For this purpose, the direct method of stability research and the gradient descent method is used. The methods are used consequentially. Firstly we use the direct method in order to construct stability conditions (resulting in an exponential estimate), which include the tuple of positive definite matrices. Then we apply the optimization technique for these stability conditions (or of exponential estimate) with the help of a generalized gradient method with respect to this tuple of matrices. The exponential estimates are constructed on the basis of the Lyapunov–Krasovskii functional. An optimization method of improving estimates is offered, which is based on the notion of the generalized gradient of the convex function of the tuple of positive definite matrices. The search for the optimal exponential estimate is reduced to finding the saddle point of the Lagrange function. Full article

The main purpose of this study was to demonstrate the existence and the uniqueness theorem of the solution of the neutral stochastic differential equations under sufficient conditions. As an alternative to the stochastic analysis theory of the neutral stochastic differential equations, we impose a weakened Ho¨lder condition and a weakened linear growth condition. Stochastic results are obtained for the theory of the existence and uniqueness of the solution. We first show that the conditions guarantee the existence and uniqueness; then, we show some exponential estimates for the solutions. Full article

In this work, we obtain exact solutions and continuous numerical approximations for mixed problems of coupled systems of diffusion equations with delay. Using the method of separation of variables, and based on an explicit expression for the solution of the separated vector initial-value delay problem, we obtain exact infinite series solutions that can be truncated to provide analytical–numerical solutions with prescribed accuracy in bounded domains. Although usually implicit in particular applications, the method of separation of variables is deeply correlated with symmetry ideas. Full article

A continuum model for tumor invasion in a two-dimensional spatial domain based on the interaction of the urokinase plasminogen activation system with a model for cancer cell dynamics is proposed. The arising system of partial differential equations is numerically solved using the finite element method. We simulated a portion of biological tissue imposing no flux boundary conditions. We monitored the cancer cell dynamics, as well the degradation of an extra cellular matrix representative, vitronectin, and the evolution of a specific degrading enzyme, plasmin, inside the biological tissue. The computations were parameterized as a function of the indirect cell proliferation induced by a plasminogen activator inhibitor binding to vitronectin and of the indirect plasmin deactivation due to the plasminogen activator inhibitor binding to the urokinase plasminogen activator. Their role during the cancer dynamical evolution was identified, together with a possible marker helping the mapping of the cancer invasive front. Our results indicate that indirect cancer cell proliferation biases the speed of the tumor invasive front as well as the heterogeneity of the cancer cell clustering and networking, as it ultimately acts on the proteolytic activity supporting cancer formation. Because of the initial conditions imposed, the numerical solutions of the model show a symmetrical dynamical evolution of heterogeneities inside the simulated domain. Moreover, an increase of up to about 12% in the invasion speed was observed, increasing the rate of indirect cancer cell proliferation, while increasing the plasmin deactivation rate inhibits heterogeneities and networking. As cancer cell proliferation causes vitronectin consumption and plasmin formation, the intensities of the concentration maps of both vitronectin and plasmin are superimposable to the cancer cell concentration maps. The qualitative imprinting that cancer cells leave on the extra cellular matrix during the time evolution as well their activity area is identified, framing the numerical results in the context of a methodology aimed at diagnostic and therapeutic improvement.

Solutions such as symmetric, periodic, and solitary wave solutions play a significant role in the field of partial differential equations (PDEs), and they can be utilized to explain several phenomena in physics and engineering. Therefore, constructing such solutions is significantly essential. This article concentrates on employing the improved exp(ϕ(η))-expansion approach and the method of lines on the variant Boussinesq system to establish its exact and numerical solutions. Novel solutions based on the solitary wave structures are obtained. We present a comprehensible comparison between the accomplished exact and numerical results to testify the accuracy of the used numerical technique. Some 3D and 2D diagrams are sketched for some solutions. We also investigate the L2 error and the CPU time of the used numerical method. The used mathematical tools can be comfortably invoked to handle more nonlinear evolution equations. Full article

In this paper, two forms of an exact solution and an analytical–numerical solution of the three-term fractional differential equation with the Caputo derivatives are presented. The Prabhakar function and an asymptotic expansion are utilized to present the double series solution. Using properties of the Pochhammer symbol, a solution is obtained in the form of an infinite series of generalized hypergeometric functions. As an alternative for the series solutions of the fractional commensurate equation, a solution received by an analytical–numerical method based on the Laplace transform technique is proposed. This solution is obtained in the form of a finite sum of the Mittag-Leffler type functions. Numerical examples and a discussion are presented. Full article

Fractional differential equations depict nature sufficiently in light of the symmetry properties which describe biological and physical processes. This article is concerned with the numerical treatment of three-term time fractional-order multi-dimensional diffusion equations by using an efficient local meshless method. The space derivative of the models is discretized by the proposed meshless procedure based on the multiquadric radial basis function though the time-fractional part is discretized by Liouville–Caputo fractional derivative. The numerical results are obtained for one-, two- and three-dimensional cases on rectangular and non-rectangular computational domains which verify the validity, efficiency and accuracy of the method.

Hybrid nanofluid is considered a new type of nanofluid and is further used to increase the heat transfer efficiency. This paper explores the two-dimensional steady axisymmetric boundary layer which contains water (base fluid) and two different nanoparticles to form a hybrid nanofluid over a permeable moving plate. The plate is suspected to move to the free stream in the similar or opposite direction. Similarity transformation is introduced in order to convert the nonlinear partial differential equation of the governing equation into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Then, the ODEs are solved using bvp4c in MATLAB 2019a software. The mathematical hybrid nanofluid and boundary conditions under the effect of suction, S, and the concentration of nanoparticles, ϕ 1 (Al2O3) and ϕ 2 (TiO2) are taken into account. Numerical results are graphically described for the skin friction coefficient, C f , and local Nusselt number, N u x , as well as velocity and temperature profiles. The results showed that duality occurs when the plate and the free stream travel in the opposite direction. The range of dual solutions expand widely for S and closely reduce for ϕ . Thus, a stability analysis is performed. The first solution is stable and realizable compared to the second solution. The C f and N u x increase with the increment of S. It is also noted that the increase of ϕ 2 leads to an increase in C f and decrease in N u x . Full article

A plethora of higher order iterative methods, involving derivatives in algorithms, are available in the literature for finding multiple roots. Contrary to this fact, the higher order methods without derivatives in the iteration are difficult to construct, and hence, such methods are almost non-existent. This motivated us to explore a derivative-free iterative scheme with optimal fourth order convergence. The applicability of the new scheme is shown by testing on different functions, which illustrates the excellent convergence. Moreover, the comparison of the performance shows that the new technique is a good competitor to existing optimal fourth order Newton-like techniques. Full article

In this paper, a kind of nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation, called an NLS-like equation, is Riemann–Hilbert investigated. We construct a 2 × 2 Lax pair associated with the NLS equation and combine the spectral analysis to formulate the Riemann–Hilbert (R–H) problem. Then, we mainly use the symmetry relationship of potential matrix Q to analyze the zeros of det P + and det P ; the N-soliton solutions of the NLS-like equation are expressed explicitly by a particular R–H problem with an unit jump matrix. In addition, the single-soliton solution and collisions of two solitons are analyzed, and the dynamic behaviors of the single-soliton solution and two-soliton solutions are shown graphically. Furthermore, on the basis of the R–H problem, the evolution equation of the R–H data with the perturbation is derived. Full article
