Degenerations of Hodge structureJul 04 2016Two interesting questions in algebraic geometry are: (i) how can a smooth projective varieties degenerate? and (ii) given two such degenerations, when can we say that one is "more singular/degenerate" than the other? Schmid's Nilpotent Orbit Theorem yields ... More

Nilpotent cones and adjoint orbitsMay 13 2014May 27 2014A short note to show that the elements of the (open) cone underlying a nilpotent orbit on a period domain are pairwise congruent under the symmetry group of the period domain.

Grain opacity and the bulk composition of extrasolar planets. II. An analytical model for the grain opacity in protoplanetary atmospheresJun 16 2014Jun 29 2014Context. We investigate the grain opacity k_gr in the atmosphere of protoplanets. This is important for the planetary mass-radius relation since k_gr affects the H/He envelope mass of low-mass planets and the critical core mass of giant planets. Aims. ... More
