We analyze Hopf bifurcation and its properties of a class of system of reaction-diffusion equations involving two discrete time delays. First, we discuss the existence of periodic solutions of this class under Neumann boundary conditions, and determine the required conditions on parameters of the system at which Hopf bifurcation arises near equilib...

We present a mathematical model for a market involving two stocks which are traded within a single homogeneous group of investors who have similar motivations and strategies for trading. It is assumed that the market consists of a fixed amount of cash and stocks (additions in time are not allowed, so the system is closed) and that the trading group...

We consider a general first-order scalar difference equation with and without Allee effect. The model without Allee effect represents asexual reproduction of a species while the model including Allee effect represents sexual reproduction. We analyze global stabilities of both models analytically and compare the results obtained. Numerical simulation...

We present an algorithm for determining the existence of a Hopf bifurcation of a system of delayed reaction–diffusion equations with the Neumann boundary conditions. The conditions on parameters of the system that a Hopf bifurcation occurs as the delay parameter passes through a critical value are determined. These conditions depend on the coeffici...

We study stability and Hopf bifurcation analysis of a model that refers to the competition between the immune system and an aggressive host such as a tumor. The model which describes this competition is governed by a reaction-diffusion system including time delay under the Neumann boundary conditions, and is based on Kuznetsov-Taylor's model. Choos...

The model analyzed in this paper is based on the model set forth by Aziz Alaoui et al.

This model incorporates a modified version of the Leslie-Gower functional response as well as that of Beddington-DeAngelis. In...

We investigate bifurcations of the Lengyel-Epstein reaction-diffusion model involving time delay under the Neumann boundary conditions.

The effect of the high/low liquidity in the market on the asset price forecasting is studied by deriving a system of ordinary differential equations. The model is an extension of that introduced by Caginalp and Merdan for the system involving a single asset traded by heterogenous groups. Derivation is based on the finiteness of assets (rather than...

Asset price dynamics is studied by using a system of ordinary differential equations which is derived by utilizing a new excess demand function introduced by Caginalp [4] for a market involving more information on demand and supply for a stock rather than their values at a particular price. Derivation is based on the finiteness of assets (rather th...

Article
A system of ordinary differential equations is used to study the price dynamics of an asset under various conditions. One of these involves the introduction of new information that is interpreted differently by two groups. Another studies the price change due to a change in the number of shares. The steady state is examined under these conditions t...

We study the temporal evolution of an interface separating two phases for its large-time behavior by adapting renormalization group methods and scaling theory. We consider a full two-phase model in the quasi-static regime and implement a renormalization procedure in order to calculate the characteristic length of a self-similar system, R(t), that i...
Article
Renormalization group and scaling theory have been used to determine the large time growth exponent for the characteristic length, R(t), of an interface in the form R(t) ∼ tβ. The exponent β is different in the two cases: quasi-static, in which the time derivative in the heat equation is suppressed, and the fully dynamic system. This paper examines...

The application of renormalization techniques to interface problems is considered after a brief review of the methodology. We study the standard sharp interface problem in the quasi-static limit (time derivative set to zero in the heat equation) for large time. The characteristic length, R(t), behaves as t β where β has values in the continuous spe...

Scaling and renormalization group (RG) methods are used to study parabolic equations with a small nonlinear term and find the decay exponents. The determination of decay exponents is viewed as an asymptoti-cally self similar process that facilitates an RG approach. These RG methods are extended to higher order in the small coefficient of the nonlin...
