Graph Compositions of "Dense" Graphs

Let G be a graph and let E(G) and V(G) represent the edge and vertex sets of G (respectively).
A composition of G is defined as a partition of V(G) into vertex sets of connected induced subgraphs of G.
We consider the number of compositions of complete graphs with certain families of graphs deleted
such as paths, cycles, stars, and sets of disjoint edges.

Asymptotic decay for the
Cauchy problem for thin films

Date: 04/15/2014
Time: 2:30PM-5:00PM
Place: Rm G27, Eiesland Hall

*All are welcome.

Abstract: We study the evolution of a thin film of fluid modeled by the lubrication approximation for thin viscous films. We prove existence of (dissipative) strong solutions for the Cauchy problem when the subdiffusive exponent ranges between 3/8 and 2; then it follows that these solutions tend to zero at rates matching the decay of the source-type self-similar solutions with zero contact angle. Finally, we introduce the weaker concept of dissipative mild solutions and we show that in the case 0
