Satellite Orbits and Relative Motion in Levi-Civita CoordinatesJul 26 2015In this paper we consider satellite trajectories in central force field with quadratic drag using two formalisms. The first using polar coordinates in which the angular momentum plays a dominant role. The second is in Levi-Civita coordinates in which ... More

Self-intersection of the relative dualizing sheaf on modular curves $X_1(N)$Dec 06 2012Let $N$ be an odd and squarefree positive integer divisible by at least two relative prime integers bigger or equal than 4. Our main theorem is an asymptotic formula solely in terms of $N$ for the stable arithmetic self-intersection number of the relative ... More

Motivic cell structuresOct 13 2003Jul 16 2005An object in motivic homotopy theory is called cellular if it can be built out of motivic spheres using homotopy colimit constructions. We explore some examples and consequences of cellularity. We explain why the algebraic K-theory and algebraic cobordism ... More

Weak equivalences of simplicial presheavesMay 02 2002The usual way of defining weak equivalences for simplicial presheaves is to require an isomorphism on all sheaves of homotopy groups. We unravel some of the machinery here, and give a more concrete description in terms of local homotopy lifting properties. ... More

The Hopf condition for bilinear forms over arbitrary fieldsSep 11 2003We settle an old question about the existence of certain "sums-of-squares" formulas over a field F (which are the simplest examples of composition formulas for quadratic forms). A classical theorem says that if such a formula exists over a field of characteristic ... More
