    Number that is not zero but is less than any finite number. Infinitesimal numbers clearly do not exist in the conventional system of real numbers, but modern developments in logic allow the use of an extended system of numbers that includes infinitesimal numbers. Calculations with these adhere...

    We obtain a description of the maximum and minimum values of the remainder in the problem of the distribution of fractional parts. The exact maximum and minimum values of the remainder are calculated; they are independent of the length of the bounded remainder interval. It is shown that these...

    We study a nonlinear elliptic problem with Dirichlet boundary condition involving an anisotropic operator with variable exponents on a smooth bounded domain Ω ⊂ RN. For that equation we prove the existence of at least two nonnegative and nontrivial weak solutions. Our main result is...

    A right-handed cut-free sequent calculus GRW for the contraction-less relevant logic RW is presented. Based on GRW, the disjunction property and the decidability, the properties which both had been proved for RW earlier, are obtained by a pure proof–theoretical method.

    The modern geometrical approach to nonlinear PDEs is the out-come of a nontrivial synthesis of differential calculus over commutative al-gebras and cohomological algebra in the context of infinite jet spaces. In this paper we propose a very natural generalization of the notion of a jet space,...
