      Differential invariants for quasi-linear and semi-linear wave-type equations 

      Sophocleous, Christodoulos; Tracinà, Rita (2008)
      In this paper, we consider the class of wave-type equations utt = f (x, t, u) uxx + g (x, t, u, ux, ut) and two special cases of it. We derive the equivalence transformations for these equations and using these transformations, ...

      Eigenvalue estimates on bakry–Émery manifolds 

      Charalambous, N.; Lu, Z.; Rowlett, J. (Springer Verlag, 2015)
      We demonstrate lower bounds for the eigenvalues of compact Bakry– Émery manifolds with and without boundary. The lower bounds for the first eigenvalue rely on a generalized maximum principle which allows gradient estimates ...
