2^n Bordered Constructions of SelfDual codes from Group RingsSelfdual codes, which are codes that are equal to their orthogonal, are a widely studied family of codes. Various techniques involving circulant matrices and matrices from group rings have been used to construct such codes. Moreover, families of rings have been used, together with a Gray map, to construct binary selfdual codes. In this paper, we introduce a new bordered construction over group rings for selfdual codes by combining many of the previously used techniques. The purpose of this is to construct selfdual codes that were missed using classical construction techniques by constructing selfdual codes with diﬀerent automorphism groups. We apply the technique to codes over ﬁnite commutative Frobenius rings of characteristic 2 and several group rings and use these to construct interesting binary selfdual codes. In particular, we construct some extremal selfdual codes length 64 and 68, constructing 30 new extremal selfdual codes of length 68.

Addendum to the article: On the Dirichlet to Neumann Problem for the 1dimensional Cubic NLS Equation on the HalfLineWe present a short note on the extension of the results of [1] to the case of nonzero initial data. More specifically, the defocusing cubic NLS equation is considered on the halfline with decaying (in time) Dirichlet data and sufficiently smooth and decaying (in space) initial data. We prove that for this case also, and for a large class of decaying Dirichlet data, the Neumann data are sufficiently decaying so that the Fokas unified method for the solution of defocusing NLS is applicable.

An algorithm for the numerical solution of twosided spacefractional partial differential equations.We introduce an algorithm for solving twosided spacefractional partial differential equations. The spacefractional derivatives we consider here are lefthanded and righthanded Riemann–Liouville fractional derivatives which are expressed by using Hadamard finitepart integrals. We approximate the Hadamard finitepart integrals by using piecewise quadratic interpolation polynomials and obtain a numerical approximation of the spacefractional derivative with convergence order

An Altered Four Circulant Construction for SelfDual Codes from Group Rings and New Extremal Binary Selfdual Codes IWe introduce an altered version of the four circulant construction over group rings for selfdual codes. We consider this construction over the binary field, the rings F2 + uF2 and F4 + uF4; using groups of order 4 and 8. Through these constructions and their extensions, we find binary selfdual codes of lengths 16, 32, 48, 64 and 68, many of which are extremal. In particular, we find forty new extremal binary selfdual codes of length 68, including twelve new codes with \gamma=5 in W68,2, which is the first instance of such a value in the literature.

An analysis of the modified L1 scheme for timefractional partial differential equations with nonsmooth dataWe introduce a modified L1 scheme for solving time fractional partial differential equations and obtain error estimates for smooth and nonsmooth initial data in both homogeneous and inhomogeneous cases. Jin \et (2016, An analysis of the L1 scheme for the subdiffusion equation with nonsmooth data, IMA J. of Numer. Anal., 36, 197221) established an $O(k)$ convergence rate for the L1 scheme for smooth and nonsmooth initial data for the homogeneous problem, where $k$ denotes the time step size. We show that the modified L1 scheme has convergence rate $O(k^{2\alpha}), 0< \alpha <1$ for smooth and nonsmooth initial data in both homogeneous and inhomogeneous cases. Numerical examples are given to show that the numerical results are consistent with the theoretical results.

Analysis of transient RivlinEricksen fluid and irreversibility of exothermic reactive hydromagnetic variable viscosityThe study analysed unsteady RivlinEricksen fluid and irreversibility of exponentially temperature dependent variable viscosity of hydromagnetic twostep exothermic chemical reactive flow along the channel axis with walls convective cooling. The nonNewtonian HeleShaw flow of RivlinErickson fluid is driven by bimolecular chemical kinetic and unvarying pressure gradient. The reactive fluid is induced by periodic changes in magnetic field and time. The Newtons law of cooling is satisfied by the constant heat coolant convection exchange at the wall surfaces with the neighboring regime. The dimensionless nonNewtonian reactive fluid equations are numerically solved using a convergent and consistence semiimplicit finite difference technique which are confirmed stable. The response of the reactive fluid flow to variational increase in the values of some entrenched fluid parameters in the momentum and energy balance equations are obtained. A satisfying equations for the ratio of irreversibility, entropy generation and Bejan number are solved with the results presented graphically and discussed quantitatively. From the study, it was obtained that the thermal criticality conditions with the right combination of thermofluid parameters, the thermal runaway can be prevented. Also, the entropy generation can minimize by at low dissipation rate and viscosity.

An analytic approach to the normalized Ricci flowlike equation: RevisitedIn this paper we revisit Hamilton’s normalized Ricci flow, which was thoroughly studied via a PDE approach in Kavallaris and Suzuki (2010). Here we provide an improved convergence result compared to the one presented Kavallaris and Suzuki (2010) for the critical case λ=8πλ=8π. We actually prove that the convergence towards the stationary normalized Ricci flow is realized through any time sequence.

An approach to construct higher order time discretisation schemes for time fractional partial differential equations with nonsmooth dataIn this paper, we shall review an approach by which we can seek higher order time discretisation schemes for solving time fractional partial differential equations with nonsmooth data. The low regularity of the solutions of time fractional partial differential equations implies standard time discretisation schemes only yield first order accuracy. To obtain higher order time discretisation schemes when the solutions of time fractional partial differential equations have low regularities, one may correct the starting steps of the standard time discretisation schemes to capture the singularities of the solutions. We will consider these corrections of some higher order time discretisation schemes obtained by using Lubich's fractional multistep methods, L1 scheme and its modification, discontinuous Galerkin methods, etc. Numerical examples are given to show that the theoretical results are consistent with the numerical results.

Blending loworder stabilised finite element methods: a positivity preserving local projection method for the convectiondiffusion equationIn this work we propose a nonlinear blending of two loworder stabilisation mechanisms for the convection–diffusion equation. The motivation for this approach is to preserve monotonicity without sacrificing accuracy for smooth solutions. The approach is to blend a firstorder artificial diffusion method, which will be active only in the vicinity of layers and extrema, with an optimal order local projection stabilisation method that will be active on the smooth regions of the solution. We prove existence of discrete solutions, as well as convergence, under appropriate assumptions on the nonlinear terms, and on the exact solution. Numerical examples show that the discrete solution produced by this method remains within the bounds given by the continuous maximum principle, while the layers are not smeared significantly.

Bordered Constructions of SelfDual Codes from Group Rings and New Extremal Binary SelfDual CodesWe introduce a bordered construction over group rings for selfdual codes. We apply the constructions over the binary field and the ring $\F_2+u\F_2$, using groups of orders 9, 15, 21, 25, 27, 33 and 35 to find extremal binary selfdual codes of lengths 20, 32, 40, 44, 52, 56, 64, 68, 88 and best known binary selfdual codes of length 72. In particular we obtain 41 new binary extremal selfdual codes of length 68 from groups of orders 15 and 33 using neighboring and extensions. All the numerical results are tabulated throughout the paper.
