The Riccati inequality and equality are studied for infinite dimensional linear discrete time stationary systems with respect to the scattering supply rate. The results obtained are an addition to and based on our earlier work on the Kalman-Yakubovich-Popov inequality in [6]. The main theorems are closely related to the results of Yu. M. Arlinskiĭ in [3]. The main difference is that we do not assume the original system to be a passive scattering system, and we allow the solutions of the Riccati inequality and equality to satisfy weaker conditions.

We study topological, metric and fractal properties of the level sets $$S_{\theta}=\{x:r(x)=\theta\}$$ of the function $r$ of asymptotic mean of digits of a number $x\in[0;1]$ in its $4$-adic representation, $$r(x)=\lim\limits_{n\to\infty}\frac{1}{n}\sum\limits^{n}_{i=1}\alpha_i(x)$$ if the asymptotic frequency $\nu_j(x)$ of at least one digit does not exist, were $$ \nu_j(x)=\lim_{n\to\infty}n^{-1}\#\{k: \alpha_k(x)=j, k\leqslant n\}, \:\: j=0,1,2,3. $$

A characterization of the scalar type spectral generators of Beurling type Carleman ultradifferentiable $C_0$-semigroups is established, the important case of the Gevrey ultradifferentiability is considered in detail, the implementation of the general criterion corresponding to a certain rapidly growing defining sequence is observed.

On nonsymmetric rank one singular perturbations of selfadjoint operators

We consider nonsymmetric rank one singular perturbations of a selfadjoint operator, i.e., an expression of the form $\tilde A=A+\alpha\left\langle\cdot,\omega_1\right\rangle\omega_2$, $\omega_1\not=\omega_2$, $\alpha\in{\mathbb C}$, in a general case $\omega_1,\omega_2\in{\mathcal H}_{-2}$. Using a constructive description of the perturbed operator $\tilde A$, we investigate some spectral and approximations properties of $\tilde A$. The wave operators corresponding to the couple $A$, $\tilde A$ and a series of examples are also presented.
