### Derivations and Identities for Kravchuk Polynomials

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 2013νmber=7. - 65, № 12. - pp. 1587–1603

We introduce the notion of Kravchuk derivations of the polynomial algebra. It is proved that any element of the kernel of a derivation of this kind gives a polynomial identity satisfied by the Kravchuk polynomials. In addition, we determine the explicit form of isomorphisms mapping the kernel of the basicWeitzenb¨ock derivation onto the kernels of Kravchuk derivations.

The exact value of the extremal characteristic

is obtained on the class *L* _{2} ^{ r } (*D* _{ ρ })*,* where *r ∈* ℤ_{+}; \( {D}_{\rho} = \sigma (x)\frac{d^2}{d{ x}^2}+\tau (x)\frac{d}{d x} \) *, σ* and τ are polynomials of at most the second and first degrees, respectively, *ρ* is a weight function, 0 *< p* ≤ 2*,* 0 *< h <* 1*, λ* _{ n }(*ρ*)
are eigenvalues of the operator *D* _{ ρ } *, φ*
is a nonnegative measurable and summable function (in the interval (*a, b*)) which is not equivalent to zero, *Ω* _{ k,ρ } is the generalized modulus of continuity of the *k* th order in the space *L* _{2,ρ } (*a, b*)*,* and *E* _{ n } (*f*)_{2,ρ }
is the best polynomial approximation in the mean with weight *ρ* for a function *f ∈ L* _{2,ρ } (*a, b*)*.* The exact values of widths for the classes of functions specified by the characteristic of smoothness *Ω* _{ k,ρ } and the *K*-functional \( \mathbb{K} \) _{m} are also obtained.

### Asymptotic Rate of Convergence of a Two-Layer Iterative Method of the Variational Type

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 2013νmber=7. - 65, № 12. - pp. 1622–1635

We present the definition and study the dependence on the initial approximation of the asymptotic rate of convergence of a two-layer symmetrizable iterative method of the variational type. The explicit expression is obtained for the substantial (with respect to the Lebesgue measure) range of its values. Its domain of continuity is described.

### On the Invariants of Root Subgroups of Finite Classical Groups

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 2013νmber=7. - 65, № 12. - pp. 1636–1645

We show that the invariant fields *F* _{ q }(*X* _{1} *, . . . ,X* _{ n })^{ G } are purely transcendental over *F* _{ q } if *G* are root subgroups of finite classical groups. The key step is to find good similar groups of our groups. Moreover, the invariant rings of the root subgroups of special linear groups are shown to be polynomial rings and their corresponding Poincaré series are presented.

Mashayekhy B., Pakdaman A., Torabi H.

↓ Abstract

Ukr. Mat. Zh. - 2013νmber=7. - 65, № 12. - pp. 1700–1711

Let *p*: *X* → *X/A* be a quotient map, where *A* is a subspace of *X*.
We study the conditions under which *p* _{∗}(π _{1} ^{qtop} (*X*, *x* _{0})) is dense in π _{1} ^{qtop} (*X*/*A*,∗)), where the fundamental groups have the natural quotient topology inherited from the loop space and *p* _{*} is a continuous homomorphism induced by the quotient map *p*. In addition, we present some applications in order to determine the properties of π _{1} ^{qtop} (*X*/*A*,∗). In particular, we establish conditions under which π _{1} ^{qtop} (*X*/*A*,∗) is an indiscrete topological group.
