### One-dimensional parameter-dependent boundary-value problems in Hölder spaces

Hanna Masliuk, Vitalii Soldatov

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 2, 143-151

We study the most general class of linear boundary-value problems for systems of $r$-th order ordinary differential equations whose solutions range over the complex H\"older space $C^{n+r,\alpha}$, with $0\leq n\in\mathbb{Z}$ and $0<\alpha\leq1$. We prove a constructive criterion under which the solution to an arbitrary parameter-dependent problem from this class is continuous in $C^{n+r,\alpha}$ with respect to the parameter. We also prove a two-sided estimate for the degree of convergence of this solution to the solution of the corresponding nonperturbed problem.

### Symmetric extensions of symmetric linear relations (operators) preserving the multivalued part

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 2, 152-177

Let $\mathfrak H$ be a Hilbert space and let $A$ be a symmetric linear relation (in particular, a nondensely defined operator) in $\mathfrak H$. By using the concept of a boundary triplet for $A^*$ we characterize symmetric extensions $\widetilde A\supset A$ preserving the multivalued part of $A$. Such a characterization is given in terms of an abstract boundary parameter and the Weyl function of the boundary triplet. Application of these results to the Hamiltonian system $Jy'-B(t)y=\lambda\Delta(t) y$ enabled us to describe its matrix solutions generating the generalized Fourier transform with the nonempty set of respective spectral functions.

### Self-consistent translational motion of reference frames and sign-definiteness of time in universal kinematics

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 2, 107-119

Universal kinematics as mathematical objects may be interesting for astrophysics, because there exists a hypothesis that, in the large scale of the Universe, physical laws (in particular, the laws of kinematics) may be different from the laws acting in a neighborhood of our solar System. The present paper is devoted to investigation of self-consistent translational motion of reference frames in abstract universal kinematics. In the case of self-consistent translational motion we can give a clear and unambiguous definition of displacement as well as the average and the instantaneous speed of the reference frame. Hence the uniform rectilinear motion is a particular case of self-consistent translational motion. So, the investigation of self-consistently translational motion is technically necessary for definition of classes of inertially-related reference frames (being in the state of uniform rectilinear mutual motion) in universal kinematics. In the paper we investigate the correlations between self-consistent translational motion and definiteness of time direction for reference frames in universal kinematics.

### On the inverse eigenvalue problems for a Jacobi matrix with mixed given data

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **24** (2018), no. 2, 178-186

We give necessary and sufficient conditions for existence and uniqueness of a solution to inverse eigenvalues problems for Jacobi matrix with given mixed initial data. We also propose effective algorithms for solving these problems.
