We analyze the overall behavior of discrete systems in the presence of defects (modeled by truncated quadratic potentials for some of the interactions) by exhibiting approximate free-discontinuity continuous energies. We give bounds on the limit surface energy densities, and we prove that these bounds are sharp in the classes of energy densities depending only on the normal to the discontinuity set, or concave and depending only on the jump across the interface. As a preliminary result we give a continuous descriptions of the 'discrete Neumann sieve'.

    Let A be a ternary Banach algebra. We prove that if A has a left-bounded approximating set, then A has a left-bounded approximate identity. Moreover, we show that if A has bounded left and right approximate identities, then A has a bounded approximate identity. Hence, we prove Altman's Theorem...

    It is well known that saturation of ideals is closely related to the "antichain-catching" phenomenon from Foreman-Magidor-Shelah [10]. We consider several antichain-catching properties that are weaker than saturation, and prove: (1) If í”— is a normal ideal on É·2 which satisfies...

Specifically, we study main properties of these new integral transforms (linearity, similarity). We find representations of generalized...
