Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We investigate the influence of interface conditions at a singularity of an indefinite canonical system on its Weyl coefficient. An explicit formula which parameterizes all possible Weyl coefficients of indefinite canonical systems with fixed Hamiltonian function is derived. This result is illustrated with two examples: the Bessel equation, which has a singular endpoint, and a Sturm-Liouville equation whose potential has an inner singularity, which arises from a continuation problem for a positive definite function.
