### Locally nilpotent derivations on rings with zero divisors

Almost all books that I have found deal with derivation on several types of rings (or algebras) (for instance, commutative, noncommutative, domains, non-domains etc).
However, each paper about ...

### Why we use Caputo fractional derivative in application?

I'm working on some papers which use Caputo fractional evolution equation as application for thier main result:
For example:
$$\left\{\begin{matrix}
^CD^{\sigma}_tx(t)+Ax(t)=&f(t,x(t),\int_{...

### “Insanely increasing” $C^\infty$ function with upper bound

Let $C^\infty$ denote the collection of functions $f:\mathbb{R}\to\mathbb{R}$ such that for every positive integer $n$, the $n$-th derivative of $f$ exists. For $f\in C^\infty$ we set
$f^{(0)} = f$, ...

### Find formula for recurrence relation with two function and two variables

$f(n,k) = 2g(n-2,k-1)+f(n-1,k)$
$g(n,k) = g(n-1,k-1)+f(n,k)$
when $n\le0$ or $k\le0: \quad f(n,k) = 0$
when $n < k:\quad f(n,k) = 0$
when $n-k<-1:\quad g(n,k) = 0$
when $k=0:\quad g(n,k) = 1$
$...

### Locally nilpotent derivation on $A[X,Y]$ whose kernel is $A$; where $A$ is an affine $k$ domain, $char k=0$

Let $k$ be a field of characteristic zero and $A$ be a $k$-algebra. A derivation on $A$ is a $k$-linear map $D: A \to A$ such that $D(ab)=aD(b)+bD(a), \forall a,b \in A$. A derivation is called ...

### Semantics of derivations as derivatives

My understanding of how derivations on commutative rings are like derivatives is that a derivation on $R$ is differentiation with respect to a vector field on $\text{Spec}(R)$. But derivations are ...

### Restricted universal extensions and lifting of derivations

Let $L$ be a perfect Lie algebra. Then it is well-known that $L$ has a universal central extension $\hat{L}$ and every derivation of $L$ can be lifted to a derivation of $\hat{L}$. (See e.g. Section 2 ...
