### STUDY OF MN CONCENTRATION EFFECT ON PHASE-FORMATION, DIMENSIONS AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF BiFe1-xMnxO3 NANOPARTICLES

Nanoscale multiferroic powders BiFe1-xMnxO3 (x = 0.00, 0.05, 0.075) synthesized by the sol-gel method are the object of the study. Samples are calcined at appropriate temperatures and for a specified period. Phase analysis of the samples is performed with the use of x-ray diffraction (XRD). The morphology of BiFe1-xMnxO3 (x = 0.00, 0.05, 0.075) powder particles is investigated using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The spectra of UV-visible absorption of the samples are obtained using a spectrophotometric system Cary 5000 UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer. The results show that Mn doping with a certain ratio will help to remove the secondary phase and create samples with single-phase BFO, and this will lead to a decrease in particle size. The study of the absorption spectra in the UV-visible region of the fabricated samples showed that Mn doping expanded and shifted the absorbing edge of the samples towards large wavelength, and reduced the width of the forbidden band. This will increase the photocatalytic activity of the BFO material system, which will make the application more practical.

The article contains the description of the genetic code of the symmetric group. A new approach to the construction of the genetic codes of the symmetric group is proposed. Based on this approach, an unambiguous representation of the elements of the group in the form of a product of cycles is obtained. Using this representation, we studied some properties of the Sn group. The representation of the elements of the group as a monomial allows constructing orthogonal bases in the space of complex-valued functions on the group.

The main result of the paper (Theorem 2) is that in the space C(I) of continuous functions on the interval I = [0, ∞], the cone K⊂C (I) consisting of absolutely monotone functions is Chebyshev, that is, for each continuous function f∈C (I) there is a unique absolutely monotonic function φ∈K of the best uniform approximation on the interval I. In the proof, we use a special criterion for the uniqueness of the best approximation by the wedge (Theorem 1). This criterion can be used in proving the uniqueness of the best approximation for other cones consisting of continuous functions.

Read More### MATHEMATICAL COMPETITIVE MODELS ON THE TROPHIC RESOURCE

The authors have developed mathematical models of operational and interference competition on a linear range based on the systems of equations with distributed parameters. They also have conducted an analysis of stationary states stability. It is shown that the operational competition on the restored trophic resource does not lead to the disappearance of one of the populations due to competition. The model of interference competition contains various options for the effects of competition between the two populations. In both models, for populations with a small number of individuals, the influence of competition is not significant. The assessment of the distribution rates of small populations on the range is given, and the conditions for the existence of an autowave solution on an unbounded straight line are obtained. In order to construct a numerical solution of a boundary value problem for a system of nonlinear differential equations, they have used the grid method with software implementation in the programming environment of the Matlab environment. Numerical results are consistent with analytical results on fine grids.

The consideration of numerous applied problems leads to systems of nonlinear equations, they include boundary problems for ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations (solved by the finite difference method), optimization problems, problems of minimization of functions of many variables, the use of implicit methods for integrating ordinary differential equations, etc. Numerical solution of systems of nonlinear equations in the general case is a more complicated problem than the solution of systems of linear equations, since there are no methods that guarantee the success of solving any problem of this kind. Identifying the optimal method and its further selection allows you to increase the chances of successfully solving systems of nonlinear equations. In connection with the relevance of the above-mentioned, this article presents the algorithms for methods for the numerical solution of systems of nonlinear equations, according to which the root of a typical system for applied problems was searched. According to the obtained results, a comparative analysis was conducted in order to identify the optimal method. The optimal method is the one that found the values of all the roots of the system with the required accuracy in the least number of iterations.

A review of the elastic behavior of materials in the temperature region before martensitic transformations (MP) is carried out. The nature of changes in elastic constants before these transformations is extremely informative in studying both the mechanisms and the nature of structural transitions, since elastic modules determine the resistance of the crystal lattice to uniform shifts and influence the stability of structures during martensitic rearrangement. All metals and their alloys by the nature of the change of elastic properties can be divided into three groups. In the 1st group, the temperature dependence of the elastic moduli is normal (the temperature coefficient is less than zero) and phase transformations take place far from the point of loss of stability of metals and intermetallic compounds. The anomalous “softening” of elastic constants of single crystals of alloys before the MP is common for all compounds of the 2nd group. In this case, as a rule, the elastic constant “softens” 11-04-2019 14-37-45, corresponding to the Bane deformation and lattice structural adjustment, it is smaller than all the other constants cij. Alloys of the 3rd group are characterized by an anomalous decrease in the modulus 11-04-2019 14-34-25 and a sharp increase in the elastic anisotropy А = с44/11-04-2019 14-34-25 to dramatic values. The part of the intermetallic compounds is characterized by the type of premartensitic instability, found in B2 compounds based on titanium nickelide and consisting in the simultaneous “softening” of all the shear and longitudinal moduli of elasticity and a decrease in the elastic anisotropy coefficient. As a result, the lattice becomes soft in all major shear systems, which ensures the diversity of structural phase transitions in this group of alloys and the unique properties of shape memory and super elasticity.

Quantum dots (QDs) of CdSe, PbS, InSb semiconductors are synthesized. The laboratory technology of applying layers on the substrate is tested. It is determined from 3D-ACM-topograms that QDs in a layer on a substrate are aggregated into conglomerates with polygonal flattened shape and consisting of tightly packed smaller particles. The experimental characteristics of the photoluminescence spectra are in good accord with the theoretical ones. The quantum output level at QD-PbS and InSb is 5-10 times lower than the best results for colloidal CdSe/CdS quantum dots. A decrease in the quantum yield is observed when transferring quantum dots from a suspension to a substrate, which may be due to the weakening of the dimensional quantization in QD during their aggregation.

The features of fractal object perception by the human visual system forming a sense of beauty are considered in the paper. The interpretation of a fractal beauty phenomenon and the numerous facts of the positive influence of fractal images on the psychological state of a person described in the literature are presented based on optical and physical concepts using numerical modeling. It is found that regardless of the model of a fractal object and variations in a wide range of its parameters, there is a self-similarity of the spatial spectra of a fractal image in different spectral ranges. We have a reason to believe that the presence of self-similarity, simplifying the processing of optical information in the cerebral cortex, creates a feeling of comfort and excites a sense of beauty.

A description is given of a laboratory setup for studying the temperature dependence of the photocurrent of semiconductor photoresistors and the results of experimental measurements of the lifetime of minority carriers of a photocurrent of conductivity depending on the temperature and frequency of light irradiation waves. It is established that the temperature dependence of the lifetime of minority photocurrent carriers in the studied semiconductor photoresistors is linear when illuminated with the green spectrum light. The magnitude of the lifetime monotonously decreases with an increase in temperature up to a statistical distribution of the measured quantity. The dependence of the lifetime of minority carriers on the frequency of light waves is almost linear. The lifetime of the minority carriers of the photocurrent monotonously increases with an increase in the wavelength of the irradiated light.
