Approximation processes and representation formulae for operator semigroups in terms of integrated means 
The representation/approximation formulae for strongly continuous operator semigroups (in short, C0  semigroups) are of interest both from a theoretical point of view and from an applied one, especially when they are involved, for instance, in the numerical analysis of the partial differential equations governed by such C0 semigroups.
Various methods and results are known in this field, often accompanied by a through study of the rate of
convergence of the given representations/approximations.
The talk will be devoted to report some recent results on such a topic which are documented in the paper
[1] and which has been jointly written with M. Cappelletti Montano and V. Leonessa.
Of concern are some representation formulae for C0 semigroups on Banach spaces, in terms of integrated means with respect to a given family of probability Borel measures and other parameters.
Such representation formulae have been suggested by some recent studies devoted to new sequences of positive linear operators which, among other things, generalize both Bernstein operators as well as Kantorovich operators ([2], [3]). They extend the representation formulae which have been obtained in [4] with purely probabilistic methods.
Some estimates of the rate of convergence in terms of the rectified modulus of continuity and the second modulus of continuity will be discussed as well.

(\beta,\gamma)Chebyshev functions and points of the interval and some extensions 
In this talk, we introduce the class of (\beta,\gamma)Chebyshev functions and corresponding points, which can be seen as a family of generalized Chebyshev polynomials and points.
For the (\beta,\gamma)Chebyshev functions, we prove that they are orthogonal in certain subintervals of [1,1] with respect to a weighted arccosine measure.
In particular we investigate the cases where they become polynomials, deriving new results concerning classical Chebyshev polynomials of first kind.
Besides, we show that subsets of Chebyshev and ChebyshevLobatto points are instances of
(\beta,\gamma)Chebyshev points. We also study the behavior of the Lebesgue constants of the polynomial interpolant at these points on varying the parameters (\beta) and (\gamma).
If time allows, we discuss their extension to the square [1,1]^2.
This is a joint work with Giacomo Elefante and Francesco Marchetti (both from UNIPD).

Recently, the idea of exponential type operators is extended in capturing semiexponential

The present study is focused on the approximation properties of the semiexponential
Baskakov operators type, connected with . A Voronovskaja type results are obtained and some
approximation properties in the weighted spaces of continuous functions are also studied.

Rhaly Operators, Boundedness, Compactness, Zero Statistical Density 
We present a study upon Rhaly operators on Hilbert spaces, that is operators defined by "terraced matrices".
We prove a necessary condition for a terraced matrix to define a bounded Rhaly operator, or a compact operator, involving subsequences with zero statistical density. We show that boundedness and compactness of Rhaly operators are reduced to study the Rhaly operators defined by subsequences of the reciprocal of natural numbers. This leads to study the reduced operators of the Cesaro operator and investigate harmonic series defined by subsequences of natural numbers with zero statistical density.

The Akima.s Fitting Method for Quartic Splines 
For the Hermite type quartic spline interpolating on the partition knots and at the midpoint of each subinterval, we consider the estimation of the derivatives on the knots, and the values of these derivatives are obtained by constructing an algorithm of Akima.s type. For computing the derivatives on endpoints are also considered alternatives that request optimal properties near the endpoints. The error estimate in the interpolation with this quartic spline is generally obtained in terms of the modulus of continuity. In the case of interpolating smooth functions, the corresponding error estimate reveal the maximal order of approximation O(h3). A numerical experiment is presented for making the comparison between the Akima.s cubic spline and the Akima.s variant quartic spline having de.ciency 2 and natural endpoint conditions.

Bernstein numerical method for solving nonlinear fractional and weakly singular Volterra integral equations of the second kind 
We will show a method of approximation for a fractional nonlinear Volterra integral equation. This method is based on Banach's Fixed Point Theorem. At each iteration step of this method, we will apply a Bernstein polynomial approximation of the functions involved in the integral. At the end of the article, we will demonstrate our results, providing some numerical examples.

Enhancing the approximation order of Shepherd operators through barycentric coordinates 
This paper presents a new approach to constructing approximation operators, with cubic and quartic approximation order, which interpolates functional values on a set of scattered data. We based on a combination of multinodes Shepard basis functions with rational interpolants based on set of nodes. Numerical results show the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed operators and are implemented by fast algorithms that are useful in multiple applications.

On a method for uniform summation of the FourierJacobi series 
We point out that there is a matrix method of summation of FourierJacobi series attached to all continuous functions, which is given by the representation of Durrmeyer operators with Jacobi weight. It is shown that this method of summation is stronger than the Cesaro methods of summation of all orders.

PoincareReeb graphs of real algebraic domains 
An algebraic domain is a closed topological subsurface of a real affine plane whose boundary consists of
disjoint smooth connected components of real algebraic plane curves.
We study the nonconvexity of an algebraic domain by collapsing all vertical
segments contained in it: this yields a PoincareReeb graph, which is naturally transversal to the
foliation by vertical lines. Using an adapted version of a Weierstrasstype approximation theorem, we show that any transversal graph whose vertices have only valencies 1 and 3 and are situated on distinct vertical lines can be realized as a PoincaréReeb graph. This talk is based on joint work with Arnaud Bodin and Patrick PopescuPampu.

About uniform continuous functions which are not Lipschitz 
To approximate a function, some simpler functions are used: simpler as definitory structure (formula) and also as regularity, continuity and/or smoothness.
Any Lipschitz function is a uniformly continuous function, but conversely it not always true. We add to the usual examples some other, especially of the class of differentiable functions.

Generalized Kantorovich Operators on Multidimensional Hypercube 
In this talk, based on the construction of Stancu's operators [1], we introduce a new generalization of Kantorovich operators acting on $L^p( Q)$, $1\leq p<\infty $, where $Q$ is a multidimensional unit hypercube. We study approximation in $L^p$norm by the sequence of
such operators. And, for the rate of the approximation, we present some estimates via multivariate averaged modulus of smoothness of the first order for functions from $L^p( Q)$ as well as from a smooth subspace of $L^p( Q)$.

On the constant in a direct inequality for the SzaszMirakyan operator 
We are concerned with the approximation of continuous functions by the classical Sz\'{a}szMirakyan operators $S_t$, $t>1$, in terms of the DitzianTotik modulus of smoothness $\omega_2^{\varphi}$ with stepweight function $\varphi (x)=\sqrt{x}$.
Information about the rate of uniform convergence is given by the direct inequality
$$\S_tff\_{[0,\infty )}\leq K_S\omega_2^{\varphi}\left(f;\frac{1}{\sqrt{t}}\right).$$
Here, we focus on the absolute constant $K_S$, and prove that it can be taken smaller than $2.5$.

A diffusive two predatorsone prey model on
periodically evolving domains

The talk deals with a diffusive two predatorsone prey model
with Hollingtype II functional response. We assume that the density of
prey and predators are spatially inhomogeneous on a (periodically)
evolving domain and are subject to homogeneous Neumann boundary
conditions.
We study the asymptotic properties of the solutions of this
reactiondiffusion model. More specifically, we introduce suitable
conditions in order that one predator species faces extinction and the
surviving predator and its prey coexist stably, showing that their
density, as time increases, tends to the periodic solution of the
corresponding kinetic two species predatorprey model. We also consider
an autonomous model on a fixed domain.

On the new positive definite RBFs by using Fourier cosine transform

In this article, we introduce a new family of infinitely smooth positive definite (PD) radial basis functions (RBFs) by using the Fourier cosine transform of the squared of a completely monotone function. These bases are represented in terms of positive Borel measures and their Fourier transforms are also given. The proposed theory is used for reconstructing the wellknown Matérn RBF and presenting a new positive definite RBF. Numerical results show an accurate reconstruction of functions in which both the Runge and Gibbs phenomena are substantially mitigated.

Algebraic construction of Zolotarev polynomials with interchanged parameters

The inverse polynomial image (IPI) of [1,1] under the monic proper aka hardcore Zolotarev polynomial Z(x; s) of degree n > 1, with prescribed parameter s, consists of [1,1] and [\alpha, \beta], and there is a point \gamma (1 < \gamma < \alpha) where Z´(x = \gamma; s) = 0. The four occurring parameters are interrelated by (\alpha + \beta) = 2*(\gamma + s) and Z(x; s) was originally represented in terms of elliptic functions, see [1][5] for details. In [5] the problem is solved to construct by algebraic means the related Zolotarev polynomial Z(x; \beta), with prescribed \beta. This amounts to determine the compatible \alpha to retain the said IPI with a corresponding new s = s_0, say. We obtain here solutions for the two analogous problems: To construct by algebraic means Z(x; \alpha) and Z(x; \gamma), which amounts to determine the compatible \beta respectively \alpha and \beta. Advantage is taken of reduced relation curves, cylindrical algebraic decomposition, and the CAS Mathematica. This is joint work with Robert Vajda.

Onesided Korovkin approximation

We consider a Korovkintype approximation problem which allows to distinguish between upper and lower approximation. The results are based on a classical characterization of Korovkin closures in terms of upper and lower envelopes and are exsposed both in the context of continuous than integrable functions. In this last case an analogous of the classical characterization is obtained which allows to consider Korovkin systems including integrable non continuous functions.

On a conjecture of G. T. Thachev

In [6], for the classical Bernstein operators, $B_n$, Thachev formulated the following conjecture:
$$\lim_{n\to\infty}\frac{B_n\big((e_1x)^{q+1},x\big)}{B_n\big(\mid e_1x\mid^q,x\big)}=0,$$
for all $q\in\mathbb{N}$. In this note we give some different proofs for this conjecture that can be applied for a general class of linear positive operators. We can also offer constants for the limit involved in the conjecture. We use techniques presented by Adell, Bustamante and Quesada [1], López and Gupta [3,4], Xiang [7] and others.

Voronovskaja type results for the Aldaz, Kounchev, Render modification of Baskakov type operators

For $j>1$, $j\in {\mathbb N}$ fixed and $n\geq j$, Aldaz, Kounchev and Render [1] introduced a modification of the Bernstein operator that preserves the monomials $e_0$ and $e_j$. This operator $B_{n,j}: C[0,1]\to C[0,1]$ is constructed using the classical original Bernstein basis functions $p_{n,k}(x) = {n \choose k} x^k (1x)^{nk}$, $ x \in [0,1]$ and is explicitly given by
$$ B_{n,j}(f;x)=\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^n f\left(t_{n,k}^{(j)}\right)p_{n,k}(x),$$
where $$t_{n,k}^{(j)}=\left(\dfrac{k(k1)\dots(kj+1)}{n(n1)\dots(nj+1)}\right)^{1/j}.$$
We generalize the definition to Baskakov type operators and prove a corresponding Voronovskaja type result.

Voronovskaya type results for special sequences of operators

The aim of this paper is twofold. First, we present Voronovskaya type formulas that can be
”differentiated” and other ones which are associated with operators preserving two prescribed
functions. Then the BernsteinSchnabl type operators Ln are considered. This sequence of positive
linear operators was studied in the literature; we provide new properties of it. In particular, its
Voronovskaya formula can be ”differentiated” and each Ln is invariant under the Kantorovich type
modification. The moments of each operator Ln form a sequence of Appell polynomials, while the
central moments are constant functions.

Normal Discrete Velocity Models for Boltzmann Equation for Mixtures

Discretization methods for Boltzmann equation (BE) have been developed on the idea of replacing the original equation by a finite set of nonlinear hyperbolic PDEs corresponding to the densities linked to a suitable finite set of velocities. Making a transition from the BE to its discrete version, we often gain some unphysical (spurious) conservation laws. The wellknown theorem of uniqueness of collision invariants for the continuous velocity space R^d very often does not work for a finite set of discrete velocities. One open problem related to the discrete BE is the construction of normal (fulfilling only physical conservation laws) discrete velocity models (DVMs). In many papers on DVMs, authors postulate from the beginning that a finite velocity space with such properties is given and after that they study the discrete BE. Our aim is not to study the equations for DVMs, but to discuss possible choices of finite sets of velocities satisfying this type of restrictions. In this presentation, we will address ways of constructing DVMs for mixtures.
