The approximations solutions are obtained by using the local fractional series expansion method. The obtained solutions show that the present method is an efficient and simple tool for solving...

    Considering vectorial integrals in the multidimensional calculus of variations and quasilinear elliptic systems of partial differential equations, we prove gradient regularity of minimizers and weak solutions, respectively. In contrast to the classical theory, we impose our assumptions on the...

    We present an overlapping domain decomposition technique for solving the Laplace-Beltrami equation on the sphere with spherical splines. We prove that the condition number of the additive Schwarz operator is bounded by $O\left(H^2/h^2\right)$, where H and h are the sizes of the coarse and fine...

The present work is concerned...
