    Inverse scattering without phase information

    (Joint work with A. Gillman, T. Hohage and R. G. Novikov) We consider the phaseless inverse scattering problem for the Schrodinger equation at fixed energy. The problem consists in determination of an unknown potential under the assumption that only the modulus of the scattering amplitude can be measured directly in an experiment. This limitation is related to the probabilistic interpretation of wavefunction which goes back to Max Born (1926). We show that a single experiment is not sufficient for the unique determination of the potential, but that it is possible to get rid of this non-uniqueness and recover the potential by making two additional experiments with known background potentials. We introduce an iterative reconstruction algorithm, estimate reconstruction errors and give numerical examples. The talk is based on the results of the work [2] and of the previous works [1,3].

    The study of the Bellman equation in the model of production company functioning in conditions of current assets deficit taking into account influence of debt burden

    The production company model with allowance for a working capital deficit and considering influence of a debt load is offered. The study is motivated by new economic operating conditions of production after crisis of 2014. The model is formalized in the form of Bellman’s equation for which the sufficient condition of uniqueness of the decision in the chosen class of functions is found. For received conditions economic interpretation is offered. Numerical calculations were performed to analyze the effect of model parameters on the interest rate and the debt discounting option.

    Bicompact schemes for numerical solving of transport problems by HOLO algorithms

    The integral-differential transport equation is common description of neutron or uncharged particles transport processes. One of the ways to accelerate iterations due to presence of an integral term in the equation is implementation of HOLO algorithms. At least two (or more) systems of equations are solved: high order (HO) transport equation with respect to distribution function in phase space and time and low order (LO) equations which are direct consequences of the transport equation on some conditions. The first HOLO algorithm was quasi-diffusion method (QDM) suggested by V.Ya.Goldin in 1964. At the present time HOLO algorithms find application for transport problems, plasma etc. In QDM low order equations derived from the transport equation by integration over angle variables defining a direction of particle propagation. These equations are written with respect to macroscopic parameters such as flux and vector flux. At present work a bicompact schemes of fours approximation order on space and third approximation order on time are used for both HO and LO systems of equations. Bicompact schemes of different approximation orders in space and time (not less than 4 and 3 respectively) for transport equation are investigated in B.V.Rogov works. A bicompact scheme for the quasi-diffusion system of equations with approximation orders matched with these ones for transport equation are presented in this work. The stencil of bicompact scheme includes two points in each space direction and two points in time. The bicompact scheme is constructed in semi-discrete way (method of lines). Time derivatives are remained in differential form, finite differences are used only on space variables. The high order of approximation in space is possible due to widening list of unknown variables and finding not only nodal values of unknown functions but spatial cell averaged values too. SDIRK methods are used for numerical integration of the semi-discrete system over time. Unlike to schemes for transport equation, a boundary problems appear in schemes for the system of quasi-diffusion equations. Economic algorithm for numerical solving of this boundary problem has been suggested.

    Numerical modeling of a low-velocity impact on hybrid composites

    Polymer composites that are being used in aviation are often exposed to low-velocity strikes - hail, gravel, hits during maintenance, etc.). These strikes don’t leave visible marks or dents, but lead to the emergence of barely visible impact damage, which severely reduces the residual strength of the whole part. In this work, we propose the application of an existing set of programs based on the grid-characteristic method for the investigation of various parameters that can influence the final strength of hybrid composites with respect to low-speed impacts. The grid-characteristic method proposed in this work was previously used for numerical simulation of polymer composites and helped to obtain a good correspondence to the experiment. Its application for the analysis of failure processes in hybrid composites will allow to modify the structure of the hybrid composite and increase its strength at low-velocity impacts.

    We develop the algebraic version of the boundary control method, which is an approach to inverse problems based on their relations to control and system theory. In the framework of this version, the reconstruction of a Riemannian manifold via its boundary inverse data is considered. Possible applications of the harmonic quaternion field algebras to 3d elliptic tomography problem are discussed.

    Injectivity of the Radon transform with restricted data

    For a compactly supported function $f$ in the plane we denote by $Rf(L)$ the value of the Radon transform $R f$ at the line $L$, i.e., $R f(L) = \int_L f\, ds$, where $ds$ denotes arc length measure on the line $L$. Given a compact set $K$ in the plane one can ask for which open and connected sets $E$ of lines $L$ it is true that a function $f$, supported in $K$, is uniquely determined by $R f(L)$ for all $L \in E$. This question, as well as a couple of closely related questions, will be discussed in the talk.

    Quasilinear integral equation in dynamics of rigid body projectile motion in medium conditions close to real ones

    Dual-projective variables were used to trasform radically dynamical equations of projectile motion in medium with density gradient and sophisticated dependence of aerodynamical forces and torques on speed. Account of all the factors above leads to integral equation relatively second derivative of tangent line intercept by inclination. In frames of perturbative approach these equations may be led to quasilinear and solved by iterative method. And inverse Lagrange transformation allows to receive parametrical equation of the projectile trajectory.

    Local reconstruction of solution of the wave equation from boundary data

    We consider the problem of determining solution of the wave equation in a domain from Cauchy data given on the boundary. The case of local data is studied: the solution and its normal derivative are given on some part of the boundary on a finite time interval. We provide a reconstruction algorithm based on analytic expressions. Possible reformulations of the problem in consideration are the source identification problem and the problem of recovering initial data in the IBVP for the wave equation. Such problems arise in geophysics (ground-penetrating radar), photoacoustic tomography with limited data, and source identification in the linearized theory of shallow water waves.

    On the search algorithm for all essentially different solutions of the inverse problem for the Grad-Shafranov equation

    For suppression of plasma instabilities in a tokamak is necessary to know the distribution of electric current $j:\overline{\omega}\ni (x,y)\mapsto j(x,y)\ge 0$ flowing through the cross section $\omega$ plasma discharge. In the simplest case, $j(x,y)=f_{u}(x,y),$ where $f_{u}(x,y)=f\bigl(u(x,y)\bigl).$ What as regards the functions $f$ and $u$, it is known only that \begin{equation}\label{0.1new} \tag{1} \left|\int_{\omega}f\bigl(u(x,y)\bigl)\,dxdy- 1\right| \le \mu\ll 1\,, \end{equation} \begin{equation}\label{LapluF} \tag{2} \Delta u=f\bigl(u(x,y)\bigl)\ge 0\,,\quad u\bigl|_{\gamma=\partial\omega}=0,\quad \sup\limits_{P\in\gamma}\Bigl|\frac{\partial u}{\partial\nu}(P)-~\Phi(P)\Bigl|\le\lambda\sup\limits_{P\in\gamma}\Bigl|\Phi(P)\Bigl|\,. \end{equation} Here $1/\lambda\gg 1,$ and $\Phi$ is a given function. It has been shown [1] that for some $\Phi$ there are essentially different solutions $f_u^1$ and $f_u^2$ of the problem \eqref{0.1new}-\eqref{LapluF} in the sense that \begin{equation*}\label{0.6} \Bigl|\frac{\|f^1_u\|-\|f^2_u\|} {\max\limits\{\,\|f^1_u\|\,,\,\|f^2_u\|\,\}}\Bigl|\ge \alpha\sim~0.1\div 0.2\,,\quad\text{where}\quad \|f^j_u\|\overset{def}{=} \max\limits_{(x,y)\in\omega}|f^j_u(x,y)|\,, \end{equation*} and \begin{equation*}\label{eq6new} (\hat x,\hat y)\in \mathop{\rm absmax} f^1_u \qquad \Rightarrow %\Longrightarrow \qquad (\hat x,\hat y)\in \mathop{\rm absmin} f^2_u\,. \end{equation*} The report will consider the finding of all essentially different solutions to the problem \eqref{0.1new}-\eqref{LapluF}.

    About the development of strategies for minimizing of risks of a different nature by full-wave numerical simulation

    Full-wave numerical simulation by grid-characteristic method allows to analyze dynamic wave patterns and dynamics of destructions of various structures. This analysis enables geophysicists to study the causes of the appearance of certain effects on seismograms, which is an alternative to solving inverse problems. Also, analysis of dynamic wave patterns can be used to improve algorithms for solving inverse problems. Analysis of the dynamics of destruction of various buildings enables engineers to optimize their structures to minimize the risks of their destruction as a result of negative impacts of natural and man-made character.

    Combined method for detecting small inclusions in the ultrasound tomography problem

    The paper is devoted to the problem of determining small sound speed fluctuations in medical ultrasound tomography problem. We studied two-dimensional sound speed model based on model of breast, considered in the papers of N. Duric [1]. The sound speed in the fatty tissue and the glandular tissue are assumed to be known but the boundary “FG” between them is unknown as well as inclusions. The problem we are numerically solved is to find “FG” boundary and inclusions visualization. Moreover we recover sound speed in inclusions. The method is based on 1) - determination of the internal boundary, 2) - visualization of inclusions using method of Reverse Time Migration and 3) - determination of sound speed in inclusions. The results of numerical simulation are presented. This work was supported by the Russian Science Foundation under grant 16-11-10027. 1. Sandhu GY, Li C, Roy O, Schmidt S, Duric N.

    Application of parallel calculations to speed up the determination of earthquake parameters by a systematic exploration of their values

    We consider the source of an earthquake in approximation of instant point shift dislocation. Such a source is given by its depth, the focal mechanism determined by three angles (strike, dip and slip) and the seismic moment characterizing the earthquake intensity. We determine the source depth and focal mechanism by a systematic exploration of 4D parametric space, and seismic moment - by solving the problem of minimization of the misfit between observed and calculated surface wave spectra for every combination of all other parameters. But this approach in the case of sufficiently high detail of the exploration requires considerable computer time. To speed up the determination of earthquake parameters we apply the methods of parallel calculations. The results of use of such approach to study the deep Okhotsk sea earthquake (2013) are presented.

    The inverse Magnetoencephalography problem and its flat approximation

    Contrary to the prevailing opinion about the incorrectness of the inverse MEEG-problem, we prove that its uniqueness solution in the framework of the electrodynamic system of Maxwell equations~[1]. The solution of this problem is the distribution of ${\bf y} \mapsto {\bf q}({\bf y})$ current dipoles of brain neurons that occupies the region $Y \subset \mathbb{R}^3 $. It is uniquely determined by the non-invasive measurements of the electric and magnetic fields induced by the current dipoles of neurons on the patient's head. The solution can be represented in the form ${\bf q}={\bf q}^*+\rho\delta\Big|_{\partial Y}$, where ${\bf q}^*$ is the usual function defined in $Y,$ and $\rho\delta\Big|_{\partial Y} $ is a $\delta$-function on the boundary of the domain $Y$ with a certain density $\rho.$ However, in cases where the conductivity is assumed to be everywhere the same (in the brain, skull, ambient air) and, in addition, it is not possible (or impossible) to record {\it in time} the electric and magnetic inductions, it is impossible to completely find ${\bf q}$. Nevertheless, it is still possible to obtain partial information about the distribution of ${\bf q}: Y\ni {\bf y} \mapsto {\bf q}({\bf y})$. This question is considered in detail in a flat model situation. A.S. Demidov (2017) Unique solvability of the inverse MEEG-problem (to appear) T.A. Stroganova et al.

    Seismic imaging in elastic media: novel approaches

    Seismic survey process is the main method for finding oil and gas deposits nowadays. To identify boundaries between different geological layers the specific procedure called migration is used. In common case, it is based on the acoustic approximation for seismic waves propagation that leads to a high level of errors and misestimating. In this work we discuss novel methods of migration that is based on elastic system of equations. Different approaches like Born approximation, Kirchhoff (Rayleigh) approximation and the grid-characteristic numerical method are used. The results are compared and pros and cons of them are discussed. The research was supported by the grant of the President of the Russian Federation No. MK- 1831.2017.9.

    We consider the periodic Cauchy problem for the self-focusing NLS equation assuming that we have a small perturbation of the constant solution. The development of instabilities near the constant solutions is one of the basic models used in the study of rouge waves. In this special situation one has an essential simplification of the theta-functional formulas, and we show, that up to a small corrections, all answers could be reduces to elementary functions (but the elementary functional formulas are different in different regions of the (x,t)-plane).

    Phase Retrieval and Phase Contrast Tomography: Uniqueness, Stability, and Reconstruction Methods

    As opposed to conventional computed tomography, phase contrast tomography does not only yield information on the imaginary part, but also the real part of the refractive index of the sample, which yields good contrast for nanoscale-imaging of living tissues. At each direction of the incident beam a phase retrieval problem has to be solved: The missing phase information of the field in the detector plane have to be reconstructed from the measurable intensities using a-priori information. Surprisingly, for compactly supported objects the complex-valued field in the exit field is uniquely determined by the amplitude of the field in the detector plane. Even more, we show that the corresponding linearized inverse problem is well-posed. However, the condition number grows exponentially with the Fresnel number. For real-valued refractive indices one has a much more favorable linear growth with the Fresnel number. Finally, we discuss the solution of phase retrieval problems by regularized Newton method. In particular we show that joint reconstruction of phase and amplitude is possible for moderate Fresnel numbers. Moreover, we present three-dimensional reconstructions from experimental tomographic data using a Newton-Kaczmarz method.

    We consider a bounded medium where light propagation is described by a stationary linear transport equation with boundary light sources and boundary measurements modelled by a so-called albedo operator. We review stability estimates for the reconstruction of the optical (absorption and scattering) parameters of the medium from the albedo operator in a $L^1$ framework [Bal-Jollivet, 2008], [McDowall-Stefanov-Tamasan, 2010]. Then we revisit such stability estimates by substituting the $L^1$-norm by a more realistic Wasserstein distance to model measurement errors. This is a joint work with Guillaume Bal (University of Chicago, USA).

    Testing economic data for consistency with the model of two rational representative consumers

    We provide a review of the applications of the generalized non-parametric method to studying the economic data for the case when the observed economic behavior is not consistent with the classical Pareto's model of a single rational representative consumer, but may be consistent with the more general model of two representative consumers. We start with the recent result about NP-completeness of a problem of testing economic data for consistency with the model of two or more temporary dictators. This model is a particular case of the general model with many representative consumers. We then overview two cases where we could revealed two rational representative consumers while not having the general algorithm for this. One case is about studying the budget statistics of UK in 1975 to 1999 and revealing the emergence of the class of the richest households. The second case is about studying the Chinese stock market crash in the Summer 2015 and revealing the class of minor investors or speculators. That analysis allowed us to reveal a single stock that explains the increased irrationality on the Chinese stock market in the Summer 2015.

    Phaseless Inverse Scattering and Global Convergence for Inverse Problems

    Inverse Scattering Problems without the phase information arise in applications to imaging of nanostructures. In this case the wavelength of the incident wave is of the order of one micron size. On this range of wavelengths only the intensity of the complex valued wave field can be measured. The phase cannot be measured. We will present uniqueness theorems and reconstruction methods (joint with V.G. Romanov) for these problems. In fact, these results, along with some results of R.G. Novikov, address, for the first time, a well known unsolved problem posed in 1977 by French mathematicians K. Shadan and P. Sabatier. The second topic, which is closely connected with the first one, is the topic of globally convergent numerical methods for Coefficient Inverse Problems with single measurement data. Global convergence addresses the following crucial question: “How to obtain at least one point in a sufficiently small neighborhood of the exact coefficient without any advanced knowledge of this neighborhood?” In the last several years, the research group of the Speaker has achieved a significant progress in this topic. These results will be presented. In particular, we will present results for experimental data. These data were collected by our group.

    Fast numerical method of solving 3D coefficient inverse problem for wave equation from integral data

    An inverse coefficient problem for time-dependent wave equation in three dimensions is under consideration. We are looking for a spatially varying coefficient of this equation knowing special time integrals of the scattered wave field in an observation domain. The inverse problem has applications to the reconstruction of the refractive index of an inhomogeneous medium, as well as to acoustic sounding, medical imaging etc. In the article, a new linear 3D Fredholm integral equation of the first kind is introduced from which it is possible to find the unknown coefficient. We present and substantiate a numerical algorithm for solving this integral equation. The algorithm does not require large computational resources and big-time implementation. It is based on the use of fast Fourier transform under some a priori assumptions about unknown coefficient and observation region of the scattered wave field. Typical results of solving this 3D inverse problem on a personal computer for simulated data demonstrate the capabilities of the proposed algorithm.

    The Inviscid Burgers Equation with Fractional Brownian Initial Data: The Dimension of Regular Lagrangian Points

    Ya. Sinai and U. Frisch initiated in 1992 the study of fractal properties of solutions of the inviscid Burgers equation with a stochastic initial velocity u(x). One of the problems that arose was the Hausdorff dimension of regular Lagrangian points S. These points describe the initial locations of those fluid particles which have not collided until a fixed time. The original model of u(x) was Fractional Brownian motion, H-FBM, with Hurst parameter $0 \le H \le 1$. Sinai (1992) showed that $dim S=1/2$ for the Brownian motion case (H=1/2). Handa (1993) found simple arguments to derive a lower bound of dim S, namely dim S >=H. The exact equality dim S=H is known as a conjecture since 1992. We represent a complete proof of the conjecture as a result of analysis of more general problem related to so called persistence/survival exponents of H-FBM

We consider a double porosity type model describing the flow of a compressible fluid in a heterogeneous anisotropic porous medium obeying the nonlinear Darcy law. We assume that the permeability ratio of matrix blocks to fractures is of order $ε^{p_ε(x)}$, where $p_ε(x)$ is a continuous positive function. We obtained the convergence of the solution and a macroscopic model of the problem was constructed using the notion of two-scale convergence combined with the variational homogenization method in the framework of Sobolev spaces with variable exponents.

    The general principal of the stabilization for periodic solutions of the quasi-linear equation of traffic flow

    We discuss some mathematical effects that appear by motion of a closed traffic flows on a ring road. The quasi-linear equation of traffic flow with a concave fundamental diagram is studied. We consider weak and periodic (with respect to ) solutions that satisfies the standard Oleinik entropy condition. Under the additional assumption of a piecewise linear structure of the fundamental diagram, it is shown that any such solution stabilizes to a moving ordinary wave. We formulate the strict mathematical statement. The results of computer experiments are presented.

    Optical Polarimetric Tomography Residual Stresses with Beam Deflection (Grin Articles)

    GRIN structures, like rod lenses, laser rods, ball lenses, fiber preforms, optical waveguides, diffractive gratings, etc. are widely used in many fields of optics and optoelectronics. Most of them have an axially symmetric refractive index distribution. Only some works devoted to reconstruction of residual stresses by using polarimetric tensor tomography with beam deflection has been published during this time. All these investigations are based on the measurement of the change in the polarization of light passed through a birefringent medium. Birefringence in GRIN lenses is very weak thus the linearized quasi - isotropic approximation can used as the bases of tensor tomography. In this case, we can separate optical problem on two parts: determination of the ray paths and determination of the change in the polarization of light passed through a birefringent medium. A surprisingly large diversity of optical profiling techniques has been developed during last decades, and first problem has numerous technical solution [1]. Solution of the second problem can be written as two linearized integrals. One of them is connected with the transversal interaction of the two-dimensional vector field and the other with the transversal interaction of the two-dimensional tensor field. From a mathematical point of view we have specal case of tesor tomography with beam deflection [2]. The reconstruction algorithm is based on cicular harmonic decomposition (Cormac – type inversion)[3]. This method of reconstruction is applicable to axially symmetric refractive index and axisymmetric attenuation. In uor case complete reconstruction of the tensor stress field by using sample transilluminatuion in a system of parallel planes is possible only based on additional information. In particula case , the consept of fictitious temperature is used when determinig the residual stress in GRIN lenses. In contrast to the straight light rays polarimetric tomography the optical problem and the inverse thermoelastic problem must be solved together [4]. References 1. Yablon A. D.

    On the variational description of the averaging quantum dynamical maps

    The dynamics of quantum system with degenerated Hamiltonian will be studied. To this end the approximating sequence of regularized Hamiltonians and corresponding sequence of dynamical semigroups acting in the space of quantum states will be considered. The regularization semigroups will be investigated as the random variable with values in the space of strongly continuous operator-valued function. The mean values of random semigroups and its properties are investigated. The trajectories of the family of averaging dynamical maps are described by the solutions of some variational problems.

    Orthogonality relations for a stationary flow of ideal fluid

    The work relates to the long standing open question: Do the stationary Euler equations have a non-trivial smooth compactly supported solution in $R^3$? If such a solution exists, it satisfies an infinite series of integral equations that are called orthogonality relations. For example, if $v=(v_1,v_2,v_3)$ is the velocity vector field, then the functions $v_1,v_2,v_3$ are pairwise $L^2$-orthogonal to each other and have coincident $L^2$-norms.

The Chaplygin transformation of the plane, or axially symmetric potential transonic flow makes it well-posed. The model of ideal gas is adequate by virtue of the existence continuous boundary layer condition. The examples discussed: supersonic Laval nozzles, nozzles with the central body, supersonic nozzle lattices of turbines, subcritical wing profiles, inlet valves of piston engines. Designing turbojets and rocket nozzles is discussed as well.

    Numerical modeling of functional algorithms for purposes of medical and ocean acoustic tomography problems

    Acoustic tomography is the unique approach for studying natural media that are transparent to acoustic waves when direct measurement of medium properties is difficult or impossible. The main characteristics, which influence on propagation of acoustic waves and, as result, which can be reconstructed by acoustic tomography methods, are spatial distributions of sound speed, medium density, absorption coefficient, and vector field of flows. To use algorithms, which allow reconstruction of all mentioned medium characteristics for a wide class of scatterers in a joint tomography scheme, is perspective for solution of the inverse scattering problems in acoustic applications. Most of the known methods for the solution of acoustic tomography problems are approximate. The linear approximation is generally applied with iteration procedures and regularizations. The general perturbation theory is also considered. On the other hand, there are quite mathematically rigorous (at least, for a rather wide class of scatterers) functional-analytical methods for solving the inverse problems; these methods were initially developed in quantum mechanics. Nowadays, detail investigations based on numerical modeling are required to understand applicability of these methods for acoustics inverse problems. Possibilities of the functional algorithms [1–5] for the purposes of 2D and 3D acoustic tomography are discussed in the present report. These algorithms take into account the multiple scattering processes and do not require either linearization of the model with iterations or an additional regularization. The joint reconstruction of sound speed, absorption coefficient, medium density and vector field of flows is considered in 2D problem. In comparison with previously reported results, reconstruction of frequency dependence of the absorption coefficient is regarded. The frequency dependence of the absorption coefficient is an additional informative parameter, which can be used in medical applications for early diagnostics of breast cancer. Results of 3D tomography reconstruction which takes into account multichannel scattering effects are also presented. These results are perspective for the ocean acoustic tomography which takes into account nonadiabatic propagation of acoustic modes in ocean waveguides. Results of the numerical simulation which show high resolution and good interference resistance of the considered functional algorithms are presented. Thus, the algorithms can be acceptable for practical purposes. The work was supported by RFBR grants № 16-29-02097 ofi_m and № 16-02-00680. Grinevich P.G., Novikov R.G.

    The Moutard transformation of two-dimensional Dirac operators and conformal geometry of surfaces in the four-space

    The Moutard transformation for a two-dimensional Dirac operator with a complex-valued potential is constructed. It is showed that this transformation relates the potentials of Weierstrass representations of surfaces related by a composition of the inversion and a reflection with respect to an axis. It is given an analytical description of an explicit example of such a transformation which results in a creation of double points on the spectral curve of a Dirac operator with a double-periodic potential.

    Multiscale modeling of shock wave – dense particles cloud interaction

    The work is devoted to the mathematical modeling of shock wave – dense particles cloud interaction. The problem is considered on different scales. The detailed gas dynamics simulations using Cartesian grid method are used to get information about the collective effects during shock wave – particles interaction. The simulations using heterogeneous media mechanics approach (Baer-Nunziato equations) are used to describe the large scale effects such as particles cloud motion. The results of modeling using both approaches are compared with each other and with the available experimental data.

    The Hamilton–Jacobi Method in the Non Hamiltonian Situation and Boltzmann extremals

    The hydrodynamic substitution, which is well known in the theory of the Vlasov equation [1–3], has recently been applied to the Liouville equation and Hamiltonian mechanics [4–8]. In [4–6], Kozlov outlined the simplest derivation of the Hamilton–Jacobi(HJ) equation, and the hydrodynamic substitution simply related this derivation to the Liouville equation[7, 8,10]. The hydrodynamic substitution also solves the interesting geometric problem of how a surface of any dimension subject to an arbitrary system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations moves in Euler coordinates (in Lagrangian coordinates, the answer is obvious). This has created prerequisites for generalizing the HJ method to the non Hamiltonian situation. The H-theorem is proved for generalized equations of chemical kinetics, and important physical examples of such generalizations are considered: a discrete model of the quantum kinetic equations (the Uehling–Uhlenbeck equations) and a quantum Markov process (a quantum random walk). The time means are shown to coincide with the Boltzmann extremes for these equations and for the Liouville equation[9,11]. This give possibility to prove existence of analogues of action-angles variables in non hamiltonian situation. 1. A. A.

    Inverse problems and the Korteweg-de-Vries equation Abstract

    We used relatively new method of ``not fixed constructive changes of variables'' dynamic systems for the nonlinear partial differential Harry Dym and Korteweg-de Vries (PDE HD and KdV) equations. The necessary condition for the stability of the phase trajectories and condition of reduction the volume of the phase flow was formulated. It was proved that two necessary solvability conditions of the system PD of the first order has one common non-trivial factor. Nonlinear PDE HD and KdV equations have a new feature, namely: after the change of variables in the equation for the function of the first derivative in new variables, this equation is accurately separated from all another equations. This is nonlinear PDE, which is important for further researches. The study of dynamic systems in neighborhoods of the fixed points was performedd. We found two new wide classes of exact solutions both for KdV and HD equations. The method gives a possibility to construct exact and approximate solutions.

    Regularized Inversion of Full Tensor Magnetic Gradient Data

    Features of numerical solution of the three-dimensional ill-posed problem devoted to the inversion of full tensor magnetic gradient data are considered. This problem is simulated by a system of three-dimensional Fredholm integral equations of the first kind. The Tikhonov regularization is applied to solve this ill-posed problem. The conjugate gradient method is used as a minimization method. The choice of the regularization parameter is realized according to the generalized discrepancy principle with consideration of round-off errors capable of affecting the final result of calculations significantly.

    Farsighted v.s. myopic optimal pricing and emission reduction strategy in a green supply chain under emission permits trading

    As an effective tool to reduce the emission of greenhouse gas (GHG), the market-based emission permits trading scheme has been developing prosperously in recent years. In this study, we examine the impacts of emission permits trading and foresight on low carbon supply chain behaviors. In a manufacturer-retailer channel, the unit production cost will decrease with the accumulation of production because of the presence of learning by doing, and the market demand is influenced by the emission level per unit production due to the improvement of consumers' environmental awareness. Our results show that the emission permits price and unit production emission play an important role in the choice of channel members' pricing strategies. It is necessary for the farsighted decision maker to be patient and to be confident of the future from the profit perspective. For emission reduction strategy, the integrated channel's emission reduction level is much higher than the one in the decentralized channel. Additionally, when the emission permits price is high enough, there will be a free-riding in the decentralized channel, i.e. the retailer acquires the extra benefit from the manufacturer's emission reduction behavior.
