Abstract: We linearize the Einstein-scalar field equations, expressed relative to constant mean curvature (CMC)-transported spatial coordinates gauge, around members of the well-known family of Kasner solutions on $(0,\infty) \times \mathbb{T}^3$. The Kasner solutions model a spatially uniform scalar field evolving in … Continue reading → PubDate: Wed, 05 Jul 2017 16:02:58 +000

Abstract: We show that $\lim_{t \to 0} e^{it\Delta}f(x) = f(x)$ almost everywhere for all $f \in H^s (\mathbb{R}^2)$ provided that $s>1/3$. This result is sharp up to the endpoint. The proof uses polynomial partitioning and decoupling. PubDate: Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:17:06 +000

Abstract: We give a completely constructive solution to Tarski’s circle squaring problem. More generally, we prove a Borel version of an equidecomposition theorem due to Laczkovich.

Abstract: The Buchsbaum-Eisenbud-Horrocks Conjecture predicts that the $i^{\mathrm{th}}$ Betti number $\beta_i(M)$ of a non-zero module $M$ of finite length and finite projective dimension over a local ring $R$ of dimension $d$ should be at least ${d \choose i}$. It would follow … Continue reading → PubDate: Tue, 06 Jun 2017 14:18:12 +000

Abstract: We prove that the 2-primary $\pi_{61}$ is zero. As a consequence, the Kervaire invariant element $\theta_5$ is contained in the strictly defined 4-fold Toda bracket $\langle 2, \theta_4, \theta_4, 2\rangle$. Our result has a geometric corollary: the 61-sphere has a … Continue reading → PubDate: Tue, 02 May 2017 18:16:55 +000

Abstract: We describe the de Rham complex of the étale coverings of Drinfeld’s $p$-adic upper half-plane for ${\rm GL}_2(\mathbf{Q}_p)$.
