The Fourier method is combined with the Nitsche-finite-element method (as a mortar method) and applied to the Dirichlet problem of the Poisson equation in three-dimensional axisymmetric domains with reentrant edges generating singularities. The approximating Fourier method yields a splitting of the 3D problem into a set of 2D problems on the meridian plane(More)
The mean return time of a discrete Markov chain to a point x is the reciprocal of the invariant probability π(x). We revisit this classical theme to investigate certain exit times for stochastic difference equations of autoregressive type. More specifically, we will discuss the asymptotics, as ε→ 0, of the first time τ that the n-dimensional process Yt =(More)
In this paper, a branching process model of the Northern Spotted Owl is simulated. We focus on the time until extinction. It is shown how an approximation of the model with a multivariate autoregressive process works well near the equilibrium, but does not give a good estimate of the time until extinction. We also show that introduction of randomness in(More)
