In this paper, we introduce the notion of screen semi-slant lightlike submanifolds of indefinite Sasakian manifolds giving characterization theorem with some non-trivial examples of such submanifolds. Integrability conditions of distributions *D*_{1}, *D*_{2} and *RadTM* on screen semi-slant lightlike submanifolds of indefinite Sasakian manifolds have been obtained. Further we obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for foliations determined by above distributions to be totally geodesic. We also study mixed geodesic screen semi-slant lightlike submanifolds of indefinite Sasakian manifolds and obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for induced connection to be metric connection.

Networks play important roles in the theory of discrete potentials. Especially, the theory of Dirichlet spaces on networks has become one of the most important tools for the study of potentials on networks. In this paper, first we study some relations between the Dirichlet sums of a function and of its Laplacian. We introduce some conditions to investigate properties of several functional spaces related to Dirichlet potentials and to biharmonic functions. Our goal is to study the growth of the Laplacian related to biharmonic functions on an infinite network. As an application, we prove a Riesz Decomposition theorem for Dirichlet functions satisfying various conditions.
