Direct Limits of Adèle Rings and Their CompletionsDec 21 2017Jun 13 2018If $\mathbb A_K$ and $\mathbb A_L$ are ad\`ele rings of global fields $K \subseteq L$, then $\mathbb A_K$ may be identified with a topological subring of $\mathbb A_L$ via the injection $\mathrm{con}_{L/K}:\mathbb A_K \to \mathbb A_L$. For a fixed global ... More

A class of phylogenetic networks reconstructable from ancestral profilesJan 13 2019May 01 2019Rooted phylogenetic networks provide an explicit representation of the evolutionary history of a set $X$ of sampled species. In contrast to phylogenetic trees which show only speciation events, networks can also accommodate reticulate processes (for example, ... More

Dissipative-regime measurements as a tool for confirming and characterizing near-room-temperature superconductivityJun 30 2019The search for new superconducting materials approaching room temperature benefits from having a variety of testing methodologies to confirm and characterize the presence of superconductivity. Often the first signatures of new superconducting species ... More

The Effect of Disease-induced Mortality on Structural Network PropertiesNov 02 2015As the understanding of the importance of social contact networks in the spread of infectious diseases has increased, so has the interest in understanding the feedback process of the disease altering the social network. While many studies have explored ... More

Transition probabilities for degenerate diffusions arising in population geneticsAug 06 2016We provide a detailed description of the structure of the transition probabilities and of the hitting distributions of boundary components of a manifold with corners for a degenerate strong Markov process arising in population genetics. The Markov processes ... More

Universal quantum dynamics from two 2-local HamiltoniansJan 29 2008In this paper, we show that the ability to switch globally between two 2-local Hamiltonians on n qubits is sufficient for achieving universal unitary dynamics on those n qubits. Of the two Hamiltonians used in the construction, one is comprised of nearest-neighbour ... More
