405, Mathematics Research Center Building (ori. New Math. Bldg.)In the first part of this lecture, we shall study dispersion effects in evolution of wave packets. The notions of "group velocity" and "parabolic equation" will be introduced. From the fact that wave packets spread out with time, we conclude that nonlinear effects should be taken into account for explanation of dispersive shocks. In the second part of the lecture we shall start studying effects of nonlinearity on wave evolution. Wave breaking phenomenon will be explained first in the simplest case of Hopf equation and then it will be generalized on so called "simple waves" solution of compressible gas dynamics equations. This solution will be illustrated by itsapplication to "piston problem".

405, Mathematics Research Center Building (ori. New Math. Bldg.)Computing a profile empirical likelihood function, which involves constrained maximization, is a key step in applications of empirical likelihood. However, in some situations, the required numerical problem has no solution. In this case, the convention is to assign a zero value to the profile empirical likelihood. This strategy has at least two limitations. First, it is numerically difficult to determine that there is no solution secondly, no information is provided on the relative plausibility of the parameter values where the likelihood is set to zero. In this talk, we present a novel adjustment to the empirical likelihood that retains all the optimality properties, and guarantees a sensible value of the likelihood at any parameter value. Our simulation indicates that the adjusted empirical likelihood is much faster to compute than the profile empirical likelihood. The confidence regions constructed via the adjusted empirical likelihood are found to have coverage probabilities closer to the nominal levels without employing complex procedures such as Bartlett correction or bootstrap calibration. The method is also shown to be effective in solving several practical problems associated with the empirical likelihood.
