Threshold harvesting policy and delayed ratiodependent functional response predatorprey model
2
2
This paper deals with a delayed ratiodependent functional response predatorprey model with a threshold harvesting policy. We study the equilibria of the system before and after the threshold. We show that the threshold harvesting can improve the undesirable behavior such as nonexistence of interior equilibria. The global analysis of the model as well as boundedness and permanence properties are examined too. Then we analyze the effect of time delay on the stabilization of the equilibria, i.e., we study whether time delay could change the stability of a coexistence point from an unstable mood to a stable one. The systemundergoes a Hopf bifurcation when it passes a critical time delay. Finally, some numerical simulations are performed tosupport our analytic results.

Existence of positive solution to a class of boundary value problems of fractional differential equations
2
2
This paper is devoted to the study of establishing sufficient conditions forexistence and uniqueness of positive solution to a class ofnonlinear problems of fractional differential equations. The boundary conditionsinvolved RiemannLiouville fractional order derivative and integral. Further, the nonlinear function $f$ containfractional order derivative which produce extra complexity. Thank to classical fixed point theorems of nonlinear alternative of LeraySchauder and Banach Contraction principle, sufficient conditions are developed under which the proposed problem has at least one solution. An example has been provided to illustrate themain results.

An approach based on statistical spline model for VolterraFredholm integral equations
2
2
In this paper, an approach based on statistical spline model (SSM) and collocation method is proposed to solve VolterraFredholm integral equations. The set of collocation nodes is chosen so that the points yield minimal error in the nodal polynomials. Under some standard assumptions, we establish the convergence property of this approach. Numerical results on some problems are given to describe the introduced method. A comparison between the numerical results and those obtained from Lagrange and Taylor collocation methods demonstrates that the proposed method generates an approximate solution with minimal error.

The comparison of optimal homotopy asymptotic method and homotopy perturbation method to solve Fisher equation
2
2
In recent years, numerous approaches have been applied for ﬁnding the solutions of functional equations. One of them is the optimal homotopy asymptotic method. In current paper, this method has been applied for obtaining the approximate solution of Fisher equation. The reliability of the method will be shown by solving some examples of various kinds and comparing the obtained outcomes with the results of homotopy Perturbation method.

On the splitstep method for the solution of nonlinear Schr"{o}dinger equation with the Riesz space fractional derivative
2
2
The aim of this paper is to extend the splitstep idea for the solution of fractional partial differential equations.We consider the multidimensional nonlinear Schr"{o}dinger equation with the Riesz space fractional derivative andpropose an efficient numerical algorithm to obtain it's approximate solutions. To this end, we first discretize the Riesz fractional derivative then apply the CrankNicolson and a splitstep methods to obtain a numerical method for this equation. In the proposed method there is no need to solve the nonlinear system of algebraic equations and the method is convergent and unconditionally stable.The proposed method preserves the discrete mass which will be investigated numerically. Numerical results demonstrate the reliability, accuracyand efficiency of the proposed method.

Analytical solution of MHD flow and heat transfer over a permeable nonlinearly stretching sheet in a porous medium filled by a nanofluid
2
2
In this paper, the differential transform method and Padé approximation (DTMPadé) is applied to obtain the approximate analytical solutions of the MHD flow and heat transfer of a nanofluid over a nonlinearly stretching permeable sheet in porous. The similarity solution is used to reduce the governing system of partial differential equations to a set of nonlinear ordinary differential equations which are then solved by DTMPadé and validity of our solutions is verified by the numerical results (fourthorder RungeKutta scheme with the shooting method). The stretching velocity of sheet is assumed to have a powerlaw variation with the horizontal distance along the plate. It was shown that the differential transform method (DTM) solutions are only valid for small values of independent variable but the obtained results by the DTMPadé are valid for the whole solution domain with high accuracy. Finally, the analytical solutions of the problem for different values of the fixed parameters are shown and discussed. Furthermore, it is found that permeability parameter of medium has a greater effect on the flow and heat transfer of a nanofluid than the magnetic parameter.
