  • Dynamical behaviour of miscibles fluids in Porous Media   Order a copy of this article
    by Fatma Zohra Nouri, Aicha Assala, Noura Djedaidi 
    Abstract: In this paper, we are interested in studying the dynamics of miscible fluids in porous media. The model describing this issue is a system of equations, coupling the standard Navier-Stokes equations with gravity g as external force and a convective diffusion equation for a dilute concentration in the carrier fluid. By assuming that the fluids are incompressible, we first derive a new system of equations, by taking into account additional terms, due to the concentration inhomogeneties and an interfacial tension between the fluids. Then we propose a numerical approach to solve our system in order to illustrate the effectiveness of the dynamics during the fluid miscibility process. At this stage, we start by showing a stability result for our numerical scheme and then present numerical results.

  • A note on homoclinic solutions for a class of semilinear fourth order differential equations without coercivity   Order a copy of this article
    by Adel Daouas 
    Abstract: In this paper, we study the existence of homoclinic solutions for the following fourth order nonautonomous differential equations u(4)+wu''+a(x)u=f(x,u), x epsilon R, (F)where w is a constant, a epsilon C(R, R) and f epsilon C(R x R,R). Without coercive condition on a and under suitable assumptions on the growth of the functions f, we obtain the existence of at least one homoclinic solution for (F) by using the Mountain Pass Theorem. Some recent results in the literature are generalized. Particulary, the open problem proposed by Zhang and Yuan [Applied Mathematics and Computation 250 (2015) 280-286] is solved.

  • Dynamical behaviors of an impulsive food-chain system with Hassell-Varley functional response and mutual interference   Order a copy of this article
    by Si Zhou, Yuanfu Shao, Qin Liu, Zhen Wang 
    Abstract: An impulsively controlled food-chain system with Hassell-Varley functional response and mutual interference is established in this article. By applying theories and methods of ecology and ordinary differential equation, the dynamical complexity of this system is investigated. We give conditions of the extinction of prey and top predator and show that this system is uniformly bounded. By use of Floquet theory of impulsive equation and small amplitude perturbation skills, we consider the local stability and global stability of the prey-free and top predator-free periodic solution. Moreover, we obtain sufficient conditions for the system to be permanent via impulsive comparison theorem. Finally, numerical simulations are given to substantiate our theoretical results and to illustrate various dynamical behaviors of this system.

    Abstract: We propose in this contribution numerical tests for local meshrnrefinement with the PCD method. We investigate two rates of localrnmesh refinement: the ratio $2$ and the ratio $3$. First we introduce arnlocal mesh refinement by subdividing the elements of the zone to bernrefined by the ratio $2$ in each direction i. e. each coarse elementrnis subdivided by $4$ fine elements. Second we subdivide the elementsrnof the zone to be refined by the ratio $3$ in each direction i. e.rneach coarse element is subdivided by $9$ fine elements. Here werninvestigate some numerical experiments to show that the optimalrnlocal refinement rate is $2$. This is in agreement with the regularityrnassumptions required for the proposed discretization.

Under appropriate conditions on the functions $p, q$ and $r$, we prove that any $lambda > 0$ sufficiently small is an eigenvalue of the above nonhomogeneous quasilinear problem. The proof relies on simple variational arguments based on Ekeland'{}s variational principle.

  • Cryptanalysis Of Farash et al.'s SIP Authentication Protocol   Order a copy of this article
    by Mourade AZROUR, Yousef FARHAOUI, Mohammed OUANAN 
    Abstract: Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the most popular signaling protocol used in order to establish, maintain and terminate a multimedia sessions between different participants. Nowadays, the security of SIP is becoming more and more important. Authentication is the most important security service required for SIP. To provide secure communication, many SIP authentication schemes have been proposed. Very recently, Farash et al. proposed a new SIP authentication protocol based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography. They proved that their scheme is secured against different attacks. However, in this paper we show that Farash et al.'s protocol suffers from Denning-Sacco attacks and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. Moreover, we propose our solution to solve the problem. The security analysis shows that our proposed solution is more secure and can resist to various attacks.

  • Vector extrapolation method for non-overlapping Schwarz iterations   Order a copy of this article
    by Nabila Nagid, Hassan Belhadj, Mohamed Ridouan Amattouch 
    Abstract: In this paper, we propose a vector extrapolation method for accelerating the non-overlapping Schwarz iterations in the case of the nonlinear reaction diffusion equations. The acceleration occurs at two levels: the acceleration of sequences produced by the fixed point algorithm, and the acceleration of sequences generated by Schwarz method. Specifically, the acceleration occurs in the internal Dirichlet boundary conditions. In order to illustrate the interest of the proposed algorithm, we have performed different test-cases of analytical examples, all results show the efficiency of the proposed approach in terms of CPU-Time, number of iterations and the rate of convergence.

  • Content Frequency and Shape Features based on CBIR: Application to color images   Order a copy of this article
    by Youness CHAWKI 
    Abstract: Due to the diversity of the image content, we propose in this study a new technique for Content-based Image Retrieval (CBIR) to characterize the image. In this scenario, all images are characterized by their frequency content and their shape information. Indeed, using the High Resolution Spectral Analysis methods, especially the 2-D ESPRIT (Estimation of Signal Parameters via Rotational Invariance Techniques), we extract from the image its content frequency and with the ART (Angular Radial Transform) its shape information in order to construct a new vector descriptor. The experimental results applied to the Coil_100 database show the effectiveness and the robustness of our approach compared to the method based on the shame information only, the precision average can be reaches 74.49%.
