)
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In celebration of Princeton University's 250th anniversary, the mathematics department held a conference entitled "Prospects in Mathematics". The purpose of the conference was to speculate on future directions of research in mathematics. This collection of articles provides a rich panorama of current mathematical activity in many research areas

Effective bisector estimate with application to Apollonian circle packings
by Ilya Vinogradov
(
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Let Gamma < PSL(2, C) be a geometrically finite nonelementary discrete subgroup, and let its critical exponent delta be greater than 1. We use representation theory of PSL(2, C) to prove an effective bisector counting theorem for Gamma, which allows counting the number of points of Gamma in general expanding regions in PSL(2, C) and provides an explicit error term. We apply this theorem to give power savings in the Apollonian circle packing problem and related counting problems
An assortment of results in combinatorics and compressed sensing
by Boris Alexeev
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide We prove a variety of results spanning combinatorics, compressed sensing, and theoretical computer science. Our methods throughout are primarily combinatorial, but we also use algebraic techniques and occasionally estimates from analysis
Quantum Cohomology of Hypertoric Varieties and Geometric Representations of Yangians
by Michael Ben McBreen
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This thesis compares two geometric constructions of a Yangian, due to Varagnolo and Nakajima on the one hand and Maulik and Okounkov on the other. It also, separately, computes the quantum cohomology of smooth hypertoric varieties, and finds a mirror formula for their quantum connection. It contains brief introductions to the background material for both problems
Abelianization of stable envelopes in symplectic resolutions
by Daniel Shenfeld
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Stable envelopes, introduced by Maulik and Okounkov, form a basis for the equivariant cohomology of symplectic resolutions. We study the case of Nakajima quiver varieties, where the resolution is a hyperkahler quotient. We relate the stable basis to that of the associated quotient by a maximal torus, and obtain a formula for the transition between the stable basis and the fixed point basis, using the root system and combinatorial data from the torus quotient

KahlerEinstein metrics and Kstability
by Ji Li
(
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this thesis, we study several problems related to the existence problem of KahlerEinstein metric on Fano manifold. After introduction in the first chapter, in the second chapter, we review the basic theory both from PDE and variational point of view. Tian's program using finite dimensional approximation is then explained. Futaki invariant is discussed in detail for both its definition and calculation. Kstability is introduced following Tian and Donaldson. In the third chapter, we extend the basic theory to the twisted setting. As an important case, the analytic and algebraic theory are both extended to the conic setting. In the third chapter, we study the continuity method on toric Fano manifolds. We calculate the maximal value of parameter for solvability and study the limit behavior of the solution metrics. As a corollary, we prove Tian's partial C0estimate on toric Fano manifolds. The logFutaki invariant is calculated on toric Fano manifolds too. In the fourth chapter, we discuss the recent joint work with Dr. Chenyang Xu. We use Minimal Model Program (MMP) to simplify the degeneration and prove Tian's conjecture which reduce the test for Kstability to special degenerations. In the final chapter, we construct examples of rotationally symmetric solitons. These solitons are local models of special singularities of KahlerRicci flow
FiniteSheeted Covering Spaces and Solenoids over 3manifolds
by Will Cavendish
(
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide This thesis develops techniques for studying towers of finitesheeted covering spaces of 3manifolds. The central question we seek to address is the following: given a pi1injective continuous map ƒ : S → M of a 2manifold S into a 3manifold M, when does there exist a nontrivial connected finitesheeted covering space M' of M such that ƒ lifts to M'? We approach this problem by reformulating it in terms of isometric actions of pi1(M) on compact metric spaces. We then study regular solenoids over M, which give natural examples of compact metric spaces with isometric pi 1(M)actions. We conclude by introducing a construction that we call the mapping solenoid of a map ƒ : S → M, which can be used to derive cohomological criteria that guarantee the existence of a lift of ƒ to a nontrivial connected finitesheeted covering space of M

Three perspectives on n points in P(n2)

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Finally, in the last chapter, we briefly discuss the representation theoretic import of the sextic resolvent of a quintic field. At this time, we have not been able to use this to extend Bhargava's parameterization of quintic rings to arbitrary base schemes in the spirit of Deligne and Wood, but we believe that this chapter forms an important start in that direction
Variations on a theorem of Tate
by Stefan Patrikis
(
)
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Let F be a number field, with absolute Galois group G. For any homomorphism r of G valued in the ladic points of a linear algebraic group H, we consider lifting problems through covers H' of H with central torus kernel. By a theorem of Tate, elaborated by B. Conrad, any such continuous homomorphism to H lifts to H'. Largely motivated by a question of Conrad, who asked when geometric homomorphisms (in the sense of FontaineMazur) should admit geometric liftings, we address a number of Galoistheoretic, automorphic, and motivic variants of the lifting problem

Etale covering between resolution of isolated singularities and GaffneyLazarsfeld theorem for homogeneous spaces
by YuChao Tu
(
)
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide In the third chapter, we begin with the notions of local degrees and higher ramification loci in order to obtain the GaffneyLazarsfeld theorem on projective spaces and Grassmannians. After some fundamental properties of homogeneous spaces, we give a generalization of the GaffneyLazarsfeld theorem for homogeneous spaces of Picard number one
