Abstract The radiation of steady surface gravity waves by a uniform stream
over locally confined (width$$U_{0}$$ ${U}_{0}$ ) smooth topography is analyzed based on potential flow theory. The linear solution to this classical problem is readily found by Fourier transforms, and the nonlinear response has been studied extensively by numerical methods. Here, an asymptotic analysis is made for subcritical flow$$L$$ $L$ in the lowFroudenumber ($$D/\lambda > 1$$ $D/\lambda >1$ ) limit, where$$F^{2} \equiv \lambda /L \ll 1$$ ${F}^{2}\equiv \lambda /L\ll 1$ is the lengthscale of radiating gravity waves and$$\lambda = U_{0}^{2} /g$$ $\lambda ={U}_{0}^{2}/g$ is the uniform water depth. In this regime, the downstream wave amplitude, although formally exponentially small with respect to$$D$$ $D$ , is determined by a fully nonlinear mechanism even for small topography amplitude. It is argued that this mechanism controls the wave response for a broad range of flow conditions, in contrast to linear theory which has very limited validity.$$F$$ $F$ 
Abstract Recent progress in microspherical superlens nanoscopy raises a fundamental question about the transition from superresolution properties of mesoscale microspheres, which can provide a subwavelength resolution
, to macroscale ball lenses, for which the imaging quality degrades because of aberrations. To address this question, this work develops a theory describing the imaging by contact ball lenses with diameters$$\sim \lambda /7$$ $\sim \lambda /7$ covering this transition range and for a broad range of refractive indices$$30 $30<D/\lambda <4000$ . Starting from geometrical optics we subsequently proceed to an exact numerical solution of the Maxwell equations explaining virtual and real image formation as well as magnification$$1.3 $1.3<n<2.1$ M and resolution near the critical index which is of interest for applications demanding the highest$$n\approx 2$$ $n\approx 2$M such as cellphone microscopy. The wave effects manifest themselves in a strong dependence of the image plane position and magnification on , for which a simple analytical formula is derived. It is demonstrated that a subwavelength resolution is achievable at$$D/\lambda $$ $D/\lambda $ . The theory explains the results of experimental contactball imaging. The understanding of the physical mechanisms of image formation revealed in this study creates a basis for developing applications of contact ball lenses in cellphonebased microscopy.$$D/\lambda \lesssim 1400$$ $D/\lambda \lesssim 1400$ 
Abstract We study the sparsity of the solutions to systems of linear Diophantine equations with and without nonnegativity constraints. The sparsity of a solution vector is the number of its nonzero entries, which is referred to as the
norm of the vector. Our main results are new improved bounds on the minimal$$\ell _0$$ ${\ell}_{0}$ norm of solutions to systems$$\ell _0$$ ${\ell}_{0}$ , where$$A\varvec{x}=\varvec{b}$$ $Ax=b$ ,$$A\in \mathbb {Z}^{m\times n}$$ $A\in {Z}^{m\times n}$ and$${\varvec{b}}\in \mathbb {Z}^m$$ $b\in {Z}^{m}$ is either a general integer vector (lattice case) or a nonnegative integer vector (semigroup case). In certain cases, we give polynomial time algorithms for computing solutions with$$\varvec{x}$$ $x$ norm satisfying the obtained bounds. We show that our bounds are tight. Our bounds can be seen as functions naturally generalizing the rank of a matrix over$$\ell _0$$ ${\ell}_{0}$ , to other subdomains such as$$\mathbb {R}$$ $R$ . We show that these new ranklike functions are all NPhard to compute in general, but polynomialtime computable for fixed number of variables.$$\mathbb {Z}$$ $Z$ 
Abstract For polyhedral constrained optimization problems and a feasible point
, it is shown that the projection of the negative gradient on the tangent cone, denoted$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ , has an orthogonal decomposition of the form$$\nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x})$$ ${\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)$ . At a stationary point,$$\varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x}) + \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})$$ $\beta \left(x\right)+\phi \left(x\right)$ so$$\nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x}) = \textbf{0}$$ ${\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)=0$ reflects the distance to a stationary point. Away from a stationary point,$$\Vert \nabla _\varOmega f(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert {\nabla}_{\Omega}f\left(x\right)\Vert $ and$$\Vert \varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \beta \left(x\right)\Vert $ measure different aspects of optimality since$$\Vert \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \phi \left(x\right)\Vert $ only vanishes when the KKT multipliers at$$\varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})$$ $\beta \left(x\right)$ have the correct sign, while$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ only vanishes when$$\varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})$$ $\phi \left(x\right)$ is a stationary point in the active manifold. As an application of the theory, an active set algorithm is developed for convex quadratic programs which adapts the flow of the algorithm based on a comparison between$$\textbf{x}$$ $x$ and$$\Vert \varvec{\beta }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \beta \left(x\right)\Vert $ .$$\Vert \varvec{\varphi }(\textbf{x})\Vert $$ $\Vert \phi \left(x\right)\Vert $
