One main advantage is that our method can easily increase numerical accuracy by using highdegree Lagrange basis functions, but remain its scheme structure and computer implementation unchanged. Moreover, it results in a symmetric (multilevel) Toeplitz differentiation matrix, enabling efficient computation via the fast Fourier transforms. If constant or linear basis functions are used, our method has an accuracy of\begin{document}$ \alpha \in (0, 2) $\end{document} , while\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^2) $\end{document} for quadratic basis functions with\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^4) $\end{document} a small mesh size. This accuracy can be achieved for any\begin{document}$ h $\end{document} and can be further increased if higherdegree basis functions are chosen. Numerical experiments are provided to approximate the fractional Laplacian and solve the fractional Poisson problems. It shows that if the solution of fractional Poisson problem satisfies\begin{document}$ \alpha \in (0, 2) $\end{document} for\begin{document}$ u \in C^{m, l}(\bar{ \Omega}) $\end{document} and\begin{document}$ m \in {\mathbb N} $\end{document} , our method has an accuracy of\begin{document}$ 0 < l < 1 $\end{document} for constant and linear basis functions, while\begin{document}$more » for quadratic basis functions. Additionally, our method can be readily applied to approximate the generalized fractional Laplacians with symmetric kernel function, and numerical study on the tempered fractional Poisson problem demonstrates its efficiency.\begin{document}$ {\mathcal O}(h^{\min\{m+l, \, 4\}}) $\end{document} 
We consider the linear third order (in time) PDE known as the SMGTJequation, defined on a bounded domain, under the action of either Dirichlet or Neumann boundary control
. Optimal interior and boundary regularity results were given in [\begin{document}$ g $\end{document} 1 ], after [41 ], when , which, moreover, in the canonical case\begin{document}$ g \in L^2(0, T;L^2(\Gamma)) \equiv L^2(\Sigma) $\end{document} , were expressed by the wellknown explicit representation formulae of the wave equation in terms of cosine/sine operators [\begin{document}$ \gamma = 0 $\end{document} 19 ], [17 ], [24 ,Vol Ⅱ]. The interior or boundary regularity theory is however the same, whether or\begin{document}$ \gamma = 0 $\end{document} , since\begin{document}$ 0 \neq \gamma \in L^{\infty}(\Omega) $\end{document} is responsible only for lower order terms. Here we exploit such cosine operator basedexplicit representation formulae to provide optimal interior and boundary regularity results with\begin{document}$ \gamma \neq 0 $\end{document} "smoother" than\begin{document}$ g $\end{document} , qualitatively by one unit, two units, etc. in the Dirichlet boundary case. To this end, we invoke the corresponding results for wave equations, as in [\begin{document}$ L^2(\Sigma) $\end{document} 17 ]. Similarly for the Neumann boundary case,more » 
We study the asymptotics of the Poisson kernel and Green's functions of the fractional conformal Laplacian for conformal infinities of asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. We derive sharp expansions of the Poisson kernel and Green's functions of the conformal Laplacian near their singularities. Our expansions of the Green's functions answer the first part of the conjecture of KimMussoWei[
21 ] in the case of locally flat conformal infinities of PoincareEinstein manifolds and together with the Poisson kernel asymptotic is used also in our paper [25 ] to show solvability of the fractional Yamabe problem in that case. Our asymptotics of the Green's functions on the general case of conformal infinities of asymptotically hyperbolic space is used also in [29 ] to show solvability of the fractional Yamabe problem for conformal infinities of dimension and fractional parameter in\begin{document}$ 3 $\end{document} corresponding to a global case left by previous works.\begin{document}$ (\frac{1}{2}, 1) $\end{document} 
Many dynamical systems described by nonlinear ODEs are unstable. Their associated solutions do not converge towards an equilibrium point, but rather converge towards some invariant subset of the state space called an attractor set. For a given ODE, in general, the existence, shape and structure of the attractor sets of the ODE are unknown. Fortunately, the sublevel sets of Lyapunov functions can provide bounds on the attractor sets of ODEs. In this paper we propose a new Lyapunov characterization of attractor sets that is well suited to the problem of finding the minimal attractor set. We show our Lyapunov characterization is nonconservative even when restricted to SumofSquares (SOS) Lyapunov functions. Given these results, we propose a SOS programming problem based on determinant maximization that yields an SOS Lyapunov function whose
sublevel set has minimal volume, is an attractor set itself, and provides an optimal outer approximation of the minimal attractor set of the ODE. Several numerical examples are presented including the Lorenz attractor and VanderPol oscillator.\begin{document}$ 1 $\end{document} 
We establish existence of finite energy weak solutions to the kinetic FokkerPlanck equation and the linear Landau equation near Maxwellian, in the presence of specular reflection boundary condition for general domains. Moreover, by using a method of reflection and the
estimate of [\begin{document}$ S_p $\end{document} 7 ], we prove regularity in the kinetic Sobolev spaces and anisotropic Hölder spaces for such weak solutions. Such\begin{document}$ S_p $\end{document} regularity leads to the uniqueness of weak solutions.\begin{document}$ S_p $\end{document}
