Superconsistent discretizations with application to hyperbolic equation
(in English), pp.89-99

A family of finite difference methods for the linear hyperbolic equations, constructed on a six-point stencil, is presented. The family depends on 3 parameters and includes many of the classical linear schemes. The approximation method is based on the use of two different grids. One grid is used to represent the approximated solution, the other (the collocation grid) is where the equation is to be satisfied. The two grids are related in such a way that the exact and the discrete operators have a common space which is as large as possible.

These theorems contain the characterization of points of the sets , , from [2, Theorem 2.2] and present a final classification of polynomials, which are the least deviating from zero in the metric L[-1,1] with four prescribed leading coefficients.

On generalized solution of two-dimensional elliptic problem with piecewise constant coefficients based on splitting a differential operator and using specific basis functions
(in Russian), pp.59-72

An alternative method with respect to difference and variational-difference algorithms is offered. It is intended for solving a boundary value problem with the second order elliptic operator in a two-dimensional domain combined of rectangles. Coefficients of a differential operator are assumed to be piecewise constant, i.e., are constant inside each rectangle. An approximate solution of the problem is realized in a generalized version. The proposed method is based on the splitting of the differential operator, using a specific system of the basic functions which ensures approximation of the solution by means of their small number. The final objective is to reduce the problem to a solution of one-dimensional problems with the algorithm oriented to a sufficiently small dimension of algebraic systems of equations and, respectively, to the fast convergence rate of the iterative process as well as to the essentially decreased computer memory.

Numerical simulation of N-body gravitational dynamics by PIC method: a parallel implementation
(in Russian), pp.25-39

The evolution of self-gravitating systems such as the accretion discs is of great interest to astrophysics. The aim of this work is to create a parallel program for the accretion disc simulation on high-performance multiprocessor computers. The disc structure formation is N-body problem in a self-consistent gravity field. A good approximation to the problem is the Vlasov-Liouville kinetic equation. In the present work, the equation is solved by the PIC method. The main difficulty here is the evaluation of gravitational potential which is given by the 3D Poisson equation. The parallel scheme of the algorithm was designed for the MIMD computers in an assembly technology. This means that the program is assembled of minimal fragments, each being a ready-made program containing potential values and the particles from one or more grid layers. The values of a grid potential are uniformly distributed among the processor elements uniformly in the radial direction. As the potential evaluation takes the main time, the distribution of particles is of minor importance here. Test computations conducted on the ICT cluster of Pentium-III workstations showed the linear acceleration as compared to the sequential version.

(in English), pp.113-124

We study a damping beam construction on elastic supports. For this kind of a construction a general mathematical model is deduced. The external load is a time-depending harmonic function. The corresponding spectral problem contains the eigenvalue parameter in the boundary conditions. The variational formulations of the considered boundary value problems are obtained. The dynamic stresses of the constructions are determined using the finite element method and the method of normal shapes. Finally, the numerical results related to the problem with practical applications are presented.

Optimization of costs policy in a geriatric queuing model with extra beds provision
(in English), pp.139-147

The planning of a hospital geriatric department is a complex task, concerning both health care itself and the corresponding financial issues. The long-term geriatric services frequently occupy hospital beds for long periods of time incurring high costs. On the other hand, there are a lot of elderly people who are unable to obtain a hospital bed, because they are all occupied. The aim of this paper is to analyze the influence of the admission policy and bed allocation upon the hospital costs. Such methodology can be used by health service managers to optimize the geriatric department activity.

The problem of moments on a finite set of points
(in Russian), pp.149-157

The influence of the last diagonal entry bn of the Jacobi matrix on its eigenvalues, which at the same time are the nodes of orthogonality of respective polynomials as well as on the squares of the first components of the normalized eigenvectors - the weights of the orthogonality, is considered. The weights of orthogonality are the distribution masses whose moments are known and given by the positive definite Hankel matrix independent of bn. Using the solutions to the equations with special matrices the first derivatives of bn of the nodes and the weights of orthogonality of the polynomials are calculated. Their asymptotic behavior with bn =>  is discussed.

A high order numerical method for the integral Volterra equations with weak singularity
(in Russian), pp.181-195

A new method of numerical solution of the linear integral Volterra equations with high accuracy, based on approximation of integrals by quadratures independent of the kernel values is proposed. This approach does allow to numerically solve special integral equations, for example, the equations with slightly singular kernels. The main idea of the method is to expand a sought for function by the Taylor formula and to use the kernel moments at the subgrid points to find the matrix of the quadrature coefficients.
The dependence of the approximation constant on the number of the subgrid points is analyzed. It is shown that the constant exponentially decreases. An estimate of the solution error for a problem with perturbations of the kernel and the right-hand side is found. The theorem of convergence for the second kind Volterra equations is proved.

Stochastic solution to partial differential equations of fractional orders
(in English), pp.197-203

Partial differential equations containing the fractional derivatives β ! f/t β (0 < β ≤ 1) and (m ) α/2 (0 < α < 2).are considered. These equations generalize the ordinary diffusion equation to an anomalous one and can be solved by m-dimensional isotropic random walk with delay. In contrast to the ordinary case, a free path distribution should have a heavy tail of the inverse power type with the exponent α, and the delay time distribution should have a similar tail with the exponent β.

(in English), pp.249-261

The paper deals with the ``true" multi-dimensional interpolation problem at scattered meshes with a huge number of interpolating points. For its solution we suggest here a new numerical technology consisting in partitioning of the problem on a number of subproblems and in a successive glueing of solutions to the subproblems. The basis of the partitioning method is the algorithm of optimal hyperplane, dividing a mesh in two intersected ones.

The conclusions obtained are confirmed by the results of numerical statistical modelling.

Climate and climate change: mathematical theory and numerical modeling
(in Russian), pp.347-379

In the paper, a climate system model constructed on the basis of coupling models of general circulation of the atmosphere and ocean is presented. This model does not use the correction of turbulent heat fluxes on the sea surface. The method to calculate the response operator of climatic models and real climatic system to small external perturbations of forcing is described. The method is based on the use of dissipation-fluctuation relations for systems with a large number of positive Lyapunov's exponents. To illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method, some results of constructing an approximate response operator for the atmospheric general circulation model are discussed. Numerical experiments to reproduce the present-day climate have been carried out. Climatic characteristics simulated by the coupled model are compared to the characteristics obtained from the community of models participating in the project SMIP. The coupled atmosphere and ocean model response to an increase of the atmospheric CO_2 concentration is analyzed. It is found that the maximal warming about 2-3.5 К takes place in the centre of Euroasia. During the cold season this warming is expressed stronger (3-5 К) than during the warm season (1-1.5 К). Approximately one third of the cold season warming in Euroasia (1-2 К) is explained by a change of the atmospheric dynamics, namely, by an increase of the arctic oscillation index.

Geometrical fundamentals of seismic imaging: realization of contact mappings
(in English), pp.323-345

In this paper, a general formulation of the seismic imaging process on the base of ray theory is proposed. Media and wavefields are considered within geometrical seismics: a medium consists of reflectors and refractors, a useful component of the wave field coinciding with basic terms of a ray series. As connections of reflectors and seismic traveltime surfaces belong to a class of contact mappings, the problem of migration is posed as realization of a given contact mapping in a class of wavefield transforms (including the class of pseudo-differential operators).

Numerical methods for the solution of direct and inverse problems of above-ground, surface and underground electromagnetic exploration geophysics are considered. Approximations of two-dimensional and three-dimensional boundary value problems are made by finite volume methods of high accuracy. The systems of linear algebraic equations with high order sparse matrices are solved by fast incomplete factorization algorithms with acceleration by conjugate gradients. The questions of computing apparent resistivity and sensitivity of characteristics fields to variations of geometric and material properties of media are described. The solution of inverse problems are implemented by optimization approaches including the interior point methods, the Lagrange multipliers and application of sequential quadratic programming.

Some examples of the calculation of seismic wave fields are given.
