Let $M$ be a closed oriented manifold with a finite group action by $G$. We denote its Borel construction by $M_{G}$. As an extension of string topology due to Chas-Sullivan, Lupercio-Uribe-Xicot$\’{e}$ncatl constructed a graded commutative associative product (loop product) on $ H_{*}(LM_{G})$, which plays a significant role in the “orbifold string topology” . They also ... Read more about "The loop homology algebra of discrete torsion"

What does high dimensional mean? How high is “high dimensional”? In this lecture I will give a rather personal view of how our ideas of high dimensionality have changed, with particular reference to recent developments in Quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods for high-dimensional integration.

The goal of this workshop is to find translations and connections between various approaches to compute partition functions and, at the same time, advance the state-of-the-art in each. Read more about "Theoretical Challenges in Partition Functions"

While the Newtonian theory of gravity is similar to electrostatics, the field equations in both cases being elliptic, Einstein's general relativity is more similar to Maxwell's electromagnetic theory, the field equations in both cases being of hyperbolic character. A consequence of this fact is the presence in general relativity of gravitational waves, which are analogous ...

Abstract: Over the past decade, approaches from signal processing, machine learning, and network science, have had a profound impact on the analysis and the interpretation of brain activity measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Functional connectivity studies have given not only insights into how the brain supports coordinated cognition, learning, or stability in a ...
