On a p-adic interpolation function for the q-extension of the generalized Bernoulli polynomials and Its derivativeFeb 22 2005We construct the q-extension of the Hurwitz's type L-function which interpolates the q-extension of generalized Bernoulli polynomials attached to $chi$.

A note on multiple Dirichlet's q-L--functionJun 09 2005Recently, the two variable $q$-$L$-functions which interpolate the generalized $q$-Bernoulli polynomials associated with $\chi$ are introduced and studied, cf. [2]. In this paper, we construct multiple Dirichlet's $q$-$L$-function which interpolates the ... More

Parameterized Wasserstein mean with its propertiesApr 20 2019A new least squares mean of positive definite matrices for the divergence associated with the sandwiched quasi-relative entropy has been introduced. It generalizes the well-known Wasserstein mean for covariance matrices of Gaussian distributions with ... More

Algebraic Ranks of CAT(0) GroupsOct 05 2012Aug 16 2013We study the algebraic rank of various classes of $\mathrm{CAT}(0)$ groups. They include right-angled Coxeter groups, right-angled Artin groups, relatively hyperbolic groups and groups acting geometrically on $\mathrm{CAT}(0)$ spaces with isolated flats. ... More

Link diagrams with low Turaev genusJul 10 2015Nov 30 2015We classify link diagrams with Turaev genus one and two in terms of an alternating tangle structure of the link diagram. The proof involves surgery along simple closed curves on the Turaev surface, called cutting loops, which have corresponding cutting ... More

Normal all pseudo-Anosov subgroups of mapping class groupsJun 20 1999Oct 14 2000We construct the first known examples of nontrivial, normal, all pseudo-Anosov subgroups of mapping class groups of surfaces. Specifically, we construct such subgroups for the closed genus two surface and for the sphere with five or more punctures. Using ... More

An alternating labeling on a spanning tree of Seifert graphs and applications in knot theoryAug 06 2011Feb 07 2014The existence of basket, flat plumbing and flat plumbing basket surfaces of a link was first proven from a braid representative of the link. In the present article, we show the existence of such surfaces from an induced graph of the link. Consequently, ... More

The nullcone in the multi-vector representation of the symplectic group and related combinatoricsApr 25 2009Mar 18 2010We study the nullcone in the multi-vector representation of the symplectic group with respect to a joint action of the general linear group and the symplectic group. By extracting an algebra over a distributive lattice structure from the coordinate ring ... More

Hyperelliptic curves and Hitchin tangential coversAug 30 2011Oct 11 2011In \cite{kim11} we have generalized a tangency condition in the Treibich-Verdier theory \cite{trei89,tv90,trei97} about elliptic solitons to a Hitchin system. As an application of this generalization, we will define, so-called, Hitchin hyperelliptic tangential ... More
