System of Caputo Fractional Differential Equations with Applications to Predator and Prey Model

By: Aghalaya S. Vatsala , Govinda Pageni

Page No : 1-18

In this research article, we provide a methodology to solve the three systems of qth order linear Caputo fractional differential equations, where 0 < q < 1. Since the Caputo derivative is in the convolution form, we can apply the Laplace transform technique. The solution of the two linear system can be used as a tool to study the stability of the equilibrium solution of the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model. We have referenced three system SIR model in this work. Due to the global nature of the Caputo derivative, the solution obtained is closer to the real data than the integer derivative.

Bilevel Optimization and Conjectural Equilibrium: Theoretical Results and Numerical Algorithms (An Invited Tutorial Paper)

By: José Guadalupe Flores- Muñiz , Viacheslav Kalashnikov , Nataliya Kalashnykova

Page No : 19-113

We study a mixed oligopoly model, including a nonprivate firm that maximizes the convex combination of domestic social surplus and net profit, under the concepts of consistent conjectural variations (CCVE), Cournot–Nash, and perfect competition equilibria and analyze the behavior of these equilibria. We compare the results to develop an optimality criterion for a parameter, decided by the nonprivate firm, known as socialization level. To work with the CCVE, we need to define the concept of consistency; hence, we also consider a classic oligopoly, which only includes private firms that maximize net profit, and reformulated it as a non-cooperative game, named meta-game, where the players (the private firms) select a conjecture as their strategies; then, we prove that the Nash equilibrium for the meta-game implies the CCVE. After that, due to its similarities with the meta-game, we study the Tolls Optimization Problem (TOP). Taking advantage of the sensitivity analysis for convex quadratic optimization and the filled function method; then, we present an efficient algorithm to solve the TOP. Finally, we apply these results to a financial model in which a group of sectors buy, sell, or exchange a set of instruments; each sector faces some uncertainty when selecting its assets and liabilities to optimize its portfolio structure. The problem is modeled using the concepts of conjectural variations and meta-game and we present results concerning the CCVE.

Studies on Association Rule-based Table Data Analysis and its Applications - New Mathematics for Data Sciences - (An Invited Tutorial Paper)

By: Hiroshi Sakai

Page No : 115-230

This tutorial paper will survey the research on association rule-based table data analysis and its application. The proposed methods obtain helpful information from discrete table data through rules, which differs from statistical table data analysis by mean or variance. Regression expressions in continuous value table data can characterize past data and predict future data values. The same will hold for rules in discrete value table data.
This tutorial paper consists of the following three parts.
Part I: Background and Examples of Rule Generation from Tables
Part II: Mathematical Research of Rule Generation from Tables
Part III: Realization of Software Tools and Applications. We introduce the research trends in this field widely through three parts.

Algebras and Logics Emerging Out of Rough Sets (An Invited Review Paper)

By: Mihir Kumar Chakraborty , Masiur Rahaman Sardar

Page No : 231-313

This is basically a survey work though some new results have also been incorporated. The contents presented are from the research done by Chakraborty and his co-workers for last three decades. A major part consists in presentation of set-models of abstract algebraic structures generated from rough sets. Three Types of logics developed during the course of research are categorized. Some foundational issues are raised at the end and open questions are mentioned.
