Observing him in these moods, I often dwelt meditatively upon the old philosophy of the Bi-Part Soul, and amused myself with the fancy of a double Dupin - the creative and the resolvent.
The main objective of this paper is to establish sufficient conditions which guarantee existence of solution for inclusions of the type [mathematical expression not reproducible] is maximal monotone of compact resolvents and C : X [contains or equal to] D(C) [right arrow] [X.sup.*] is bounded and continuous with D(T) [subset or equal to] D(C)) provided that there exists R > 0 such that (T + C + [epsilon]J)(D(T) [intersection] [partial derivative][B.sub.R](0)) [??] [f.sup.*] for all [epsilon] > 0.

The AGS equation is directly connected to the scattering matrix elements via the channel resolvents, and is thus fit to calculate reaction quantities, but is not directly connected to the wave function.
In PicoSAT's certificates, there are initial clauses and resolvents. Resolvents are obtained from linear regular resolution.
Note that only three lock resolvents were generated for this proof, while in the ordinary resolution, 35 resolvents would be generated using the level-saturation method.
This is a major difficulty in the case of the integrals representing [A.sup.1/p] and [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] (A, E) because the integrands involve resolvents; see the discussion on bounding resolvents in the previous section.
His findings suggest a new approach to investigating entire functions based on the recent estimates for the resolvents of compact operators.
