On the topology and the boundary of N-dimensional RCD(K,N) spacesJul 04 2019We establish topological regularity and stability of N-dimensional RCD(K,N) spaces (up to a small singular set), also called non-collapsed RCD(K,N) in the literature. We also introduce the notion of a boundary of such spaces and study its properties, ... More
Lower deviation probabilities for supercritical Galton-Watson processesMay 31 2005There is a well-known sequence of constants c_n describing the growth of supercritical Galton-Watson processes Z_n. With 'lower deviation probabilities' we refer to P(Z_n=k_n) with k_n=o(c_n) as n increases. We give a detailed picture of the asymptotic ... More
Fractional Cable Model for Signal Conduction in Spiny Neuronal DendritesFeb 17 2017The cable model is widely used in several fields of science to describe the propagation of signals. A relevant medical and biological example is the anomalous subdiffusion in spiny neuronal dendrites observed in several studies of the last decade. Anomalous ... More
