The shifted classical circulant and skew circulant splitting iterative methods for Toeplitz matrices
It is known that every Toeplitz matrix $T$ enjoys a circulant
and skew circulant splitting (denoted by CSCS)
i.e., $T=CS$ with $C$ a circulant matrix and $S$ a skew circulant
matrix. Based on the variant of such a splitting (also referred
to as CSCS), we first develop classical CSCS iterative methods
and then introduce shifted CSCS iterative methods for solving
hermitian positive definite Toeplitz systems in this paper. The
convergence of each method is analyzed. Numerical experiments
show that the classical CSCS iterative methods work slightly
better than the GaussSeidel (GS) iterative methods if the CSCS
is convergent, and that there is always a constant $\alpha$ such
that the shifted CSCS iteration converges much faster than the
GaussSeidel iteration, no matter whether the CSCS itself is
convergent or not.

Uniqueness Implies Existence and Uniqueness Conditions for a Class of $(k+j)$Point Boundary Value Problems for $n$th Order Differential Equations
For the $n$th order nonlinear differential equation, $y^{(n)} = f(x, y, y',
\dots, y^{(n1)})$, we consider uniqueness implies uniqueness and existence
results for solutions satisfying certain $(k+j)$point
boundary conditions for $1\le j \le n1$ and $1\leq k \leq nj$. We
define $(k;j)$point unique solvability in analogy to $k$point
disconjugacy and we show that $(nj_{0};j_{0})$point
unique solvability implies $(k;j)$point unique solvability for $1\le j \le
j_{0}$, and $1\leq k \leq nj$. This result is
analogous to
$n$point disconjugacy implies $k$point disconjugacy for $2\le k\le
n1$.

A Pointwise Estimate for the Fourier Transform and Maxima of a Function
We show a pointwise estimate for the Fourier
transform on the line involving the number of times the function
changes monotonicity. The contrapositive of the theorem may be used to
find a lower bound to the number of local maxima of a function. We
also show two applications of the theorem. The first is the two weight
problem for the Fourier transform, and the second is estimating the
number of roots of the derivative of a function.

Summation of Series over Bourget Functions
In this paper we derive formulas for summation of series involving
J.~Bourget's generalization of Bessel functions of integer order, as
well as the analogous generalizations by H.~M.~Srivastava. These series are
expressed in terms of the Riemann $\z$ function and Dirichlet
functions $\eta$, $\la$, $\b$, and can be brought into closed form in
certain cases, which means that the infinite series are represented
by finite sums.

On the Singular Behavior of the Inverse Laplace Transforms of the Functions $\frac{I_n(s)}{s I_n^\prime(s)}$
Exact analytical expressions for the inverse Laplace transforms of
the functions $\frac{I_n(s)}{s I_n^\prime(s)}$ are obtained in the
form of trigonometric series. The convergence of the series is
analyzed theoretically, and it is proven that those diverge on an
infinite denumerable set of points. Therefore it is shown that the
inverse transforms have an infinite number of singular points. This
result, to the best of the author's knowledge, is new, as the
inverse transforms of $\frac{I_n(s)}{s I_n^\prime(s)}$ have
previously been considered to be piecewise smooth and continuous.
It is also found that the inverse transforms have an infinite
number of points of finite discontinuity with different left and
rightside limits. The points of singularity and points of finite
discontinuity alternate, and the sign of the infinity at the
singular points also alternates depending on the order $n$. The
behavior of the inverse transforms in the proximity of the singular
points and the points of finite discontinuity is addressed as well.

A Generalized Rao Bound for Ordered Orthogonal Arrays and $(t,m,s)$Nets
In this paper, we provide a generalization of the classical Rao
bound for orthogonal arrays, which can be applied to ordered
orthogonal arrays and $(t,m,s)$nets. Application of our new bound
leads to improvements in many parameter situations to the strongest
bounds (\ie, necessary conditions) for existence of these objects.
