Harmonic maps and para-Sasakian geometry | 153--163 |

**Abstract**

The purpose of this paper is to study the harmonicity of maps to or from para-Sasakian manifolds. We derive a condition for the tension field of paraholomorphic map between almost para-Hermitian manifold and para-Sasakian manifold. Necessary and sufficient conditions for a paraholomorphic map between para-Sasakian manifolds to be parapluriharmonic are shown and a non-trivial example is presented for their illustration.

**Keywords:** Harmonic maps; paraholomorphic maps; paracomplex manifolds; paracontact manifolds.

Exploring stronger forms of transitivity on $G$-spaces | 164--175 |

**Abstract**

In this paper we introduce and study some stronger forms of transitivity like total transitivity, weakly mixing for maps on $G$-spaces. We obtain their relationship with the earlier defined notion of strongly mixing for maps on $G$-spaces. We also study in detail $G$-minimal maps on $G$-spaces.

**Keywords:** Topological transitivity; topological mixing; $G$-space; pseudoequivariant map.

Strong mixed and generalized fractional calculus for banach space valued functions | 176--191 |

**Keywords:** Right and left fractional derivative; right and left fractional Taylor's formula; Banach space valued functions;
integral inequalities; Bochner integral.

Arithmetic properties of $3$-regular bi-partitions with designated summands | 192--206 |

**Abstract**

Recently Andrews, Lewis and Lovejoy introduced the partition functions $PD(n)$ defined by the number of partitions of $n$ with designated summands and they found several modulo 3 and 4. In this paper, we find several congruences modulo 3 and 4 for $PBD_{3}(n)$, which represent the number of 3-regular bi-partitions of $n$ with designated summands. For example, for each \quad $n\ge1$ and $\alpha\geq0$ \quad $PBD_{3}(4\cdot3^{\alpha+2}n+10\cdot3^{\alpha+1})\equiv 0 \pmod{3}$.

**Keywords:** Partitions; designated summands; congruences.

On optimality of the index of sum, product, maximum, and minimum of finite Baire index functions | 207--213 |

**Abstract**

Chaatit, Mascioni, and Rosenthal defined finite Baire index for a bounded real-valued function $f$ on a separable metric space, denoted by $i(f)$, and proved that for any bounded functions $f$ and $g$ of finite Baire index, $i(h)\leq i(f)+i(g)$, where $h$ is any of the functions $f+g$, $fg$, $f\vee g$, $f\wedge g$. In this paper, we prove that the result is optimal in the following sense : for each $n,k<\omega$, there exist functions $f,g$ such that $i(f)=n$, $i(g)=k$, and $i(h)=i(f)+i(g)$.

**Keywords:** Finite Baire index; oscillation index; Baire-1 functions.

Coupled fixed points for mappings on a $b$-metric space with a graph | 214--225 |

**Abstract**

In this paper, we will develop a new method to study coupled fixed points of a mapping $T:X \times X \to X$, where $(X, d)$ is a special class of $b$-metric spaces endowed with a graph. We will prove some general fixed point theorems which enable us to extend some old results in fixed point theory. Moreover, we will extend Edelstein's fixed point theorem for two variable mappings in $\varepsilon$-chainable $b$-metric spaces.

**Keywords:** Coupled fixed point; connected graph; Picard operator; $b$-metric space.

Finite groups whose commuting graphs are integral | 226--230 |

**Abstract**

A finite non-abelian group $G$ is called commuting integral if the commuting graph of $G$ is integral. In this paper, we show that a finite group is commuting integral if its central quotient is isomorphic to $\mathbb{Z}_p \times \mathbb{Z}_p$ or $D_{2m}$, where $p$ is any prime integer and $D_{2m}$ is the dihedral group of order $2m$.

**Keywords:** Integral graph; commuting graph; spectrum of a graph.
