Weakly contractive iterated function systems and beyond: a manual
ABSTRACT We give a systematic account of iterated function systems (IFS) of weak contractions of different types (Browder, Rakotch, topological). We show that the existence of attractors and
Survival probability of precipitations and rain attenuation in tropical and equatorial regions
This contribution presents a stochastic model useful for the generation of a long-term tropospheric rain attenuation time series for Earth space or a terrestrial radio link in tropical and equatorial
On Graphs, Groups and Geometry
A metric space (X, d) is declared to be natural if (X, d) determines an up to isomorphism unique group structure (X,+) on the set X such that all the group translations and group inversion are
A Mathematical Model for Control of Drainage in an Irrigation System
Mathematical models describing the estimation of optimal amounts of water depend on various parameters such as the quality of soil that depends on many random factors. Investigation methods and
Transportation inequalities for coupled systems of stochastic delay evolution equations with a fractional Brownian motion
Abstract We prove an existence and uniqueness result of mild solution for a system of stochastic semilinear differential equations with fractional Brownian motions and Hurst parameter H < 1∕2. Our
Considering Random Factors in Modeling Complex Microeconomic Systems
Within the framework of a model describing real-functioning association of three enterprises, numerical calculations of economic dynamics parameters considering fluctuating market demand for the
On Leader-Following Consensus in Multi-Agent Systems with Discrete Updates at Random Times
Some sufficient conditions are derived to design the control law that ensures the leader-following consensus is asymptotically reached (in the sense of the expected value of a stochastic process) in continuous-time multi-agent networks.

The demand for electric power in aircrafts is increasing fast. As a result, an elevated voltage is needed for the rising power level, in order to optimize the whole system. This will make the system
Probabilistic analysis of a concrete column in an aggressive soil environment
The proposed method to prevent unexpected structural failures during column service life can assist designers and can help to make decisions on existing foundations to ensure the safety of geotechnical construction.
Statistical delay QoS driven resource allocation and performance analysis for wireless communication networks
A joint optimization problem of link-layer energy efficiency and EC in a single-user single-carrier communication system, and a total EC maximization problem subject to the individual linklayer EE requirement as well as the per-user average transmit power limit in a multi-user multi- carrier orthogonal frequency-division multiple access system.
