Title: New Bounds for Equiangular Lines and Spherical Twodistance Sets
Abstract: The set of points in a metric space is called an $s$distance set if pairwise distances between these points admit only $s$ distinct values. Twodistance spherical sets with the set of scalar products $\{\alpha, \alpha\}$, $\alpha\in[0,1)$, are called equiangular. The problem of determining the maximal size of $s$distance sets in various spaces has a long history in mathematics. We determine a new method of bounding the size of an $s$distance set in twopoint homogeneous spaces via zonal spherical functions. This method allows us to prove that the maximum size of a spherical twodistance set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ is $\frac{n(n+1)}2$ with possible exceptions for some $n=(2k+1)^23$, $k \in \mathbb{N}$. We also prove the universal upper bound $\sim \frac 2 3 n a^2$ for equiangular sets with $\alpha=\frac 1 a$ and, employing this bound, prove a new upper bound on the size of equiangular sets in an arbitrary dimension. Finally, we classify all equiangular sets reaching this new bound.

Title: Symplecticity Preserving Solution for the TwoComponent CamassaHolm Equation
Abstract: In this talk a new finite difference scheme for solving twocomponent CamassaHolm (CH) equation will be presented in detail. To simulate shallow water accurately, highorder scheme will be developed for the equivalent system of CH equations which contains only the first order derivative terms. In the space, fifthorder accurate combined compact difference (CCD) scheme is developed together with the sixthorder accurate compact scheme developed in a threepoint stencil is developed for the Helmholtz equation. In the time frame, a symplectic RungeKutta scheme with sixthorder accuracy is proposed to preserve infinite number of conservation laws embedded in the twocomponent CH equation.

Title: Probe Type Method for Acoustic Wave Equations with Discontinuous Coefficients
Abstract: By adapting the idea of Belishev given in the paper below, we will show how the boundary control method abbreviated by BC method can be used to identify an unknown inclusion inside the medium. This idea is quite similar to the probing type argument for the Helmholtz equation and heat equation.

Title: Design and Implementation of MultiplePrecision Arithmetic on MATLAB and Its Applications to Numerically Unstable Problems
Abstract: In this presentation, a new multipleprecision arithmetic environment on MATLAB is introduced. MATLAB is widely used in numerical computations, and double precision arithmetic which has approximately 16 decimal digits accuracy is used. In numerical treatments of unstable problems, rounding errors give serious influences to results. The proposed environment provides approximation and arithmetic of real numbers with arbitrary accuracy, and is effective to overcome numerical instability. Four basic rules are implemented in assembly language for the sake of fast computations, and it runs on MATLAB (2016b) on MacOSX and Windows at present. Comparisons between VPA (variable precision arithmetic) in MATLAB Symbolic Math Toolbox will be presented, and some demonstrations will be also exhibited.

Title: Nonlinear Schrödinger Equations with Square Root and Saturable Nonlinearities
Abstract: Nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations with square root and saturable nonlinearities are wellknown models to describe photorefractive mediums in nonlinear optics. Mathematically, such nonlinearities are different from power nonlinearity in many aspects. For instance, there is scaling invariant on the eigenvalue problem of NLS equations with power nonlinearity but neither square root nor saturable nonlinearity can give such a property. In this lecture, I’ll introduce some problems and results of NLS equations with square root and saturable nonlinearities.
