We study the Yamabe problem on open manifolds of bounded geometry and show that under suitable assumptions there exist Yamabe metrics, i.e. conformal metrics of constant scalar curvature. For that, we use weighted Sobolev embeddings.

It is shown that in a topological dynamical system with positive entropy, there is a measure-theoretically "rather big" set such that a multivariant version of mean Li-Yorke chaos happens on the closure of the stable or unstable set of any point from the set. It is also proved that the intersections of the sets of asymptotic tuples and mean Li-Yorke tuples with the set of topological entropy tuples are dense in the set of topological entropy tuples respectively.

We compare the central mass distribution of galaxies simulated with three different models of the interstellar medium (ISM) with increasing complexity: primordial (H+He) cooling down to 10^4K, additional cooling via metal lines and to lower temperatures, and molecular hydrogen (H_2) with shielding of atomic and molecular hydrogen, in addition to metal line cooling. In order to analyze the effect of these models, we follow the evolution of four field galaxies with V_peak < 120 km/s to a...

A new slender-body theory for viscous flow, based on the concepts of dimensional reduction and hyperviscous regularization, is presented. The geometry of flat, elongated, or point-like rigid bodies immersed in a viscous fluid is approximated by lower-dimensional objects, and a hyperviscous term is added to the flow equation. The hyperviscosity is given by the product of the ordinary viscosity with the square of a length that is shown to play the role of effective thickness of any...

Study of the matrix-level affine algebra $U_{m,K}$ is motivated by conformal field theory and the fractional quantum Hall effect. Gannon completed the classification of $U_{m,K}$ modular-invariant partition functions. Here we connect the algebra $U_{2,K}$ to strings on 2-tori describable by rational conformal field theories. As Gukov and Vafa proved, rationality selects the complex-multiplication tori. We point out that the rational conformal field theories describing strings on...

This article considers the performance of wireless communication systems that utilize reconfigurable or pattern-dynamic antennas. The focus is on finite-state channels with memory and performance is assessed in terms of real-time behavior. In a wireless setting, when a slow fading channel enters a deep fade, the corresponding communication system faces the threat of successive decoding failures at the destination. Under such circumstances, rapidly getting out of deep fades becomes a priority....

We investigate the potential and limitations of the wave generation by disturbances moving at the bottom. More precisely, we assume that the wavemaker is composed of an underwater object of a given shape which can be displaced according to a prescribed trajectory. We address the practical question of computing the wavemaker shape and trajectory generating a wave with prescribed characteristics. For the sake of simplicity we model the hydrodynamics by a generalized forced Benjamin-Bona-Mahony...

Optimal power flow (OPF) is considered for microgrids, with the objective of minimizing either the power distribution losses, or, the cost of power drawn from the substation and supplied by distributed generation (DG) units, while effecting voltage regulation. The microgrid is unbalanced, due to unequal loads in each phase and non-equilateral conductor spacings on the distribution lines. Similar to OPF formulations for balanced systems, the considered OPF problem is nonconvex. Nevertheless, a...

Event-Driven Particle Dynamics is a fast and precise method to simulate particulate systems of all scales. In this work it is demonstrated that, despite the high accuracy of the method, the finite machine precision leads to simulations entering invalid states where the dynamics are undefined. A general event-detection algorithm is proposed which handles these situations in a stable and efficient manner. This requires a definition of the dynamics of invalid states and leads to improved...

We introduce two complementary notions of $\ell_q$ subspace sparsity: row sparsity and column sparsity. We prove nonasymptotic lower and upper bounds on the minimax subspace estimation error for $0\leq q\leq1$....

It is assumed that the total Hamiltonian is a self-adjoint operator on the state space and bounded from below. Then it is proven that a subset of real numbers is the essential spectrum of the total Hamiltonian. It is applied to the system of a Dirac field coupled to a Klein-Gordon field. Then the HVZ theorem for the system is...

The paper investigates the properties of a class of resource allocation algorithms for communication networks: if a node of this network has $x$ requests to transmit, then it receives a fraction of the capacity proportional to $\log(1+x)$, the logarithm of its current load. A detailed fluid scaling analysis of such a network with two nodes is presented. It is shown that the interaction of several time scales plays an important role in the evolution of such a system, in particular its...

We construct loop soups for general Markov processes without transition densities and show that the associated permanental process is equal in distribution to the loop soup local time. This is used to establish isomorphism theorems connecting the local time of the original process with the associated permanental process. Further properties of the loop measure are studied.

Finding the coordinate-wise maxima and the convex hull of a planar point set are probably the most classic problems in computational geometry. We consider these problems in the self-improving setting. Here, we have $n$ distributions $\mathcal{D}_1, \ldots, \mathcal{D}_n$ of planar points. An input point set $(p_1, \ldots, p_n)$ is generated by taking an independent sample $p_i$ from each $\mathcal{D}_i$, so the input is distributed according to the product $\mathcal{D} = \prod_i \mathcal{D}_i$....

Our framework is based on the theory of random atomic measures, with prior specified by a completely random measure. We characterise the posterior distribution given data, and derive a simple and effective Gibbs sampler for posterior simulation. We then...

Incompleteness of CSIT refers to the perfect knowledge at each transmitter (TX) of only a sub-matrix of the global channel matrix, where the sub-matrix is specific to each TX. This paper investigates the notion of IA feasibility for CSIT configurations being as incomplete as possible, as...

We also construct an interpolating spline of low degree having optimal norm up to a constant factor. A general result relating interpolation in $L^r_p(R)$ and $W^r_p(R)$ for all $r \geq 1$ is also given.

We show that the construction preserves comprehensions and all the logical operations which are in the starting doctrine, in the sense that it maps a first order many-sorted theory into a the same theory formulated with equality. As a corollary it forces an implicational doctrine to have an extentional entailment.

We present a model of truthful elicitation which generalizes and extends mechanisms, scoring rules, and a number of related settings that do not quite qualify as one or the other. Our main result is a characterization theorem, yielding characterizations for all of these settings, including a new characterization of scoring rules for non-convex sets of distributions. Conceptually, our results clarify the connection between scoring rules and mechanisms and show how phrasing results as statements...

We heuristically analyze the Cocks-Pinch method by using the Bateman-Horn conjecture. Especially, we present the first known heuristic which suggests that any efficient construction of pairing-friendly elliptic curves can efficiently generate such curves over pairing-friendly fields, naturally including the Cocks-Pinch method. Finally, some numerical evidence is given.

We study random perturbations of multidimensional piecewise expanding maps. We characterize absolutely continuous stationary measures (acsm) of randomly perturbed dynamical systems in terms of pseudo-orbits linking the ergodic components of absolutely invariant measures (acim) of the unperturbed system. We focus on those components, called least-elements, which attract pseudo-orbits. We show that each least element admits a neighbourhood which supports exactly one ergodic acsm of the random...

We give a polynomial time reduction from vector scheduling problem (VS) to generalized load balancing problem (GLB). This reduction gives the first non-trivial online algorithm for VS where vectors come in an online fashion. The online algorithm is very simple in that each vector only needs to minimize the $L_{\ln(md)}$ norm of the resulting load when it comes, where $m$ is the number of partitions and $d$ is the dimension of vectors. It has an approximation bound of $e\log(md)$, which is in...

By adopting a new approach to the analysis of the density of p-adic solutions arising in applications of the circle method, we show that under modest conditions the existence of non-trivial p-adic solutions suffices to establish positivity of the singular series. This improves on earlier approaches due to Davenport, Schmidt and others, which require the existence of non- singular p-adic solutions. As a by-product, we obtain a version of Hensel's Lemma for linear spaces.

We study aleph_0-stable theories, and prove that if T either has eni-DOP or is eni-deep, then its class of countable models is Borel complete. We introduce the notion of lambda-Borel completeness and prove that such theories are lambda-Borel complete. Using this, we conclude that an aleph_0-stable theory has 2^lambda pairwise non-L(infinity,aleph_0) equivalent models of size lambda for all infinite cardinals lambda if and only if T either has eni-DOP or is eni-deep.

We consider a one-dimensional continuous time random walk with transition rates depending on an underlying autonomous simple symmetric exclusion process starting out of equilibrium. This model represents an example of a random walk in a slowly non-uniform mixing dynamic random environment. Under a proper space-time rescaling in which the exclusion is speeded up compared to the random walk, we prove a hydrodynamic limit theorem for the exclusion as seen by this walk and we derive an ODE...

Software verification has emerged as a key concern for ensuring the continued progress of information technology. Full verification generally requires, as a crucial step, equipping each loop with a "loop invariant". Beyond their role in verification, loop invariants help program understanding by providing fundamental insights into the nature of algorithms. In practice, finding sound and useful invariants remains a challenge. Fortunately, many invariants seem intuitively to exhibit a...

The paper investigates the sensitivity of the inverse problem of recovering the velocity field in a bounded domain from the boundary dynamic Dirichlet-to-Neumann map (DDtN) for the wave equation. Three main results are obtained: (1) assuming that two velocity fields are non-trapping and are equal to a constant near the boundary, it is shown that the two induced scattering relations must be identical if their corresponding DDtN maps are sufficiently close; (2) a geodesic X-ray transform operator...

We revisit the Bieberbach conjecture in the framework of SLE processes and, more generally, L\'evy processes. The study of their unbounded whole-plane versions leads to a discrete series of exact results for the expectations of coefficients and their variances, and, more generally, for the derivative moments of some prescribed order p. These results are generalized to the m-fold conformal maps of whole-plane SLEs or L\'evy-Loewner Evolutions (LLEs). We also study the (averaged) integral means...

The graded parts of $R_w$ are certain Kostka numbers, so this Hilbert function computes stretched Kostka numbers. If all the weights...

The Mathieu twisted twining genera, i.e. the analogues of Norton's generalised Moonshine functions, are constructed for the elliptic genus of K3. It is shown that they satisfy the expected consistency conditions, and that their behaviour under modular transformations is controlled by a 3-cocycle in H^3(M_24,U(1)), just as for the case of holomorphic orbifolds. This suggests that a holomorphic VOA may be underlying Mathieu Moonshine.

It is well known that a quantum correlated probe can yield better precision in estimating an unknown parameter than classically possible. However, how such a quantum probe should be measured remains somewhat elusive. We examine the role of measurements in quantum metrology by considering two types of readout strategies: coherent, where all probes are measured simultaneously in an entangled basis; and adaptive, where probes are measured sequentially, with each measurement conditioned on the...

A graph on the sphere naturally gives a combinatorial tiling. We study the tilings such that all tiles has five edges (i.e., pentagons). We prove that the tiling has at least two vertices of degree > 3, and any vertex of degree > 3 must have another vertex of degree > 3 within distance 5. Moreover, we classify all tilings with exactly two vertices of degree > 3. These results are needed for the classification of tilings of the sphere by geometrically congruent pentagons.

First, the equality constraint is transformed into a continuous-time...

We first give the decompositions of the tensor products of finite dimensional indecomposable modules into the direct sum of indecomposable modules over $D(H_4)$. Then we describe the structure of the Green ring $r(D(H_4))$ of $D(H_4)$ and show that $r(D(H_4))$ is generated, as a ring, by infinitely many elements subject to a family of relations.
