IPA Recipients for October 2016

IPA Recipients for October 2016

Jose Ernie C. Lope and Mark Philip F. Ona Institute of Mathematics College of Science UP Diliman Holomorphic and Gevrey Solutions of a Singular Integro-Differential Equation. AIP Conference Proceedings, 1707: 040001, 7 pages, 11 February 2016. Finding solutions to differential equations is an important problem in applied and also theoretical mathematics. In this research, we study an integro- differential equation and show that it has a power series solution. The said equation arose from investigations in differential geometry. We will use a fixed point argument and a family of functions to show that the equation has unique and convergent series solution. […]
