    The Beale-Kato-Majda criterion asserts that smooth solutions to the Euler equations remain bounded past T as long as ∫0T ‖ω ‖∈dt is finite, ω being the vorticity. We show how to replace this by a weaker statement, on supj ∫0T ‖Δjω...

    The article focuses on Euler's limit formula that plays an essential part in the theory of the gamma function. Topics covered include an alternative method for the real case based on the fact that a sequence is convergent if it is increasing and bounded above, proof of the Bohr-Mollerup theorem...

    In this paper we expose two different proofs for the fact that the sequence of general term (1+1/n) n+0.5which converges to the celebrated constant of Napier also called the number of Euler, the number e, is strictly decreasing. The one of the proofs shows the possibility of work without to use...

    The aim of this paper, firstly, is to construct generating functions of q-Euler numbers and polynomials of higher order by applying the fermionic p-adic q-Volkenborn integral, secondly, to define multivariate q-Euler zeta function (Barnes-type Hurwitz q-Euler zeta function) and l-function which...

    The main purpose of this paper is using the elementary and analytic methods to study the mean value properties of the Smarandache repetitional sequence, and give two asymptotic formulas for it.

    In this paper we introduce an explicit one-step method that can be used for solving stiff problems. This method can be viewed as a modification of the explicit Euler method that allows to reduce the stiffness in some sense. Some numerical experiments on linear stiff problems and on the Van der...

    It is conjectured that Euler possessed an elementary proof of Fermat’s theorem for n = 3. In this note, we show that this opinion is rather credible, because, from Euler’s results, one can obtain an elementary proof of the nonexistence of positive integer solutions of the equation...
