      Giné, Jaume; Grau Montaña, Maite; Santallusia Esvert, Xavier (Elsevier, 2015)
      The classical Poincaré center-focus problem for planar polynomial systems of ordinary differential equations can be transformed, in certain particular cases, to the center problem of a trigonometric Abel differential ...

    • The diameter of cyclic Kautz digraphs 

      Böhmová, Katerina; Dalfó, Cristina; Huemer, Clemens (Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics, University of Nis, Serbia, 2017)
      We present a new kind of digraphs, called cyclic Kautz digraphs CK(d, ɭ), which are subdigraphs of the well-known Kautz digraphs K(d,ɭ). The latter have the smallest diameter among all digraphs with their number of ...

      We consider families of planar polynomial vector fields having a singularity with purely imaginary eigenvalues for which a basis of its Bautin ideal B is known. We provide an algorithm for computing an upper bound of the ...
    • The inverse integrating factor and the Poincaré map 

      García, I. A. (Isaac A.); Giacomini, Héctor; Grau Montaña, Maite (American Mathematical Society, 2010)
      This work is concerned with planar real analytic differential systems with an analytic inverse integrating factor defined in a neighborhood of a regular orbit. We show that the inverse integrating factor defines an ...
    • The jumping knight and other (super) edge-magic constructions 

      López Masip, Susana-Clara; Muntaner Batle, F. A.; Rius Font, Miquel (Springer, 2014)
      Let G be a graph of order p and size q with loops allowed. A bijective function f:V(G)∪E(G)→{i}p+qi=1 is an edge-magic labeling of G if the sum f(u)+f(uv)+f(v)=k is independent of the choice of the edge uv. The constant k ...
    • The Manhattan Product of Digraphs 

      Comellas, Francesc; Dalfó, Cristina; Fiol, Miguel Angel (Indonesian Combinatorial Society (InaCombS); Graph Theory and Applications (GTA) Research Centre; University of Newcastle, Australia; Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Indonesia, 2013)
      We study the main properties of a new product of bipartite digraphs which we call Manhattan product. This product allows us to understand the subjacent product in the Manhattan street networks and can be used to built other ...
    • The null divergence factor 

      Chavarriga Soriano, Javier; Giacomini, Héctor; Giné, Jaume (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Matemàtiques, 1997)
      Let (P, Q) be a C 1 vector field defined in a open subset U ⊂ R2 . We call a null divergence factor a C 1 solution V (x, y) of the equation P ∂V + Q ∂V = ∂P + ∂Q V . In previous works ∂x ∂y ∂x ∂y it has been ...
    • The power of digraph products applied to labelings 

      Ichishima, R.; López Masip, Susana-Clara; Muntaner Batle, F. A.; Rius Font, Miquel (Elsevier, 2012)
      The ⊗h-product was introduced in 2008 by Figueroa-Centeno et al. as a way to construct new families of (super) edge-magic graphs and to prove that some of those families admit an exponential number of (super) edge-magic ...
    • The problem of distinguishing between a center and a focus for nilpotent and degenerate analytic systems 

      Giacomini, Héctor; Giné, Jaume; Llibre, Jaume (Elsevier, 2006)
      In this work we study the centers of planar analytic vector fields which are limit of linear type centers. It is proved that all the nilpotent centers are limit of linear type centers and consequently the Poincaré–Liapunov ...
    • The role of algebraic solutions in planar polynomial differential systems

      We study a planar polynomial differential system, given by . We consider a function , where gi(x) are algebraic functions of with ak(x) and algebraic functions, A0(x,y) and A1(x,y) do not share any common factor, h2(x) is ...
