Asymptotes of Space CurvesApr 25 2014May 15 2014In this paper, we generalize the results presented in [5] for the case of real algebraic space curves. More precisely, given an algebraic space curve C (parametrically or implicitly defined), we show how to compute the generalized asymptotes. The approach ... More

Separation axioms and covering dimension of asymmetric normed spacesMay 03 2018Jan 05 2019In this paper, we approach the question if some of the separation axioms are equivalent in the class of asymmetric normed spaces. In particular, we make a remark on a known theorem which states that every $T_1$ asymmetric normed space with compact closed ... More

A Class of Infinitely Divisible Multivariate and Matrix Gamma Distributions and Cone-valued Generalised Gamma ConvolutionsJan 06 2012Classes of multivariate and cone valued infinitely divisible Gamma distributions are introduced. Particular emphasis is put on the cone-valued case, due to the relevance of infinitely divisible distributions on the positive semi-definite matrices in applications. ... More

Double spend racesFeb 06 2017Feb 17 2017We correct the double spend race analysis given in Nakamoto's foundational Bitcoin article and give a closed-form formula for the probability of success of a double spend attack using the Regularized Incomplete Beta Function. We give a proof of the exponential ... More

On Profitability of Trailing MiningNov 22 2018We compute the revenue ratio of the Trail Stubborn mining strategy in the Bitcoin network and compare its profitability to other block-withholding strategies. We use for this martingale techniques and a classical analysis of the hiker problem. In this ... More

Model of the polarized foreground diffuse Galactic emissions from 33 to 353 GHzApr 16 2012We present 3D models of the Galactic magnetic field including regular and turbulent components, and of the distribution of matter in the Galaxy including relativistic electrons and dust grains. By integrating along the line of sight, we construct maps ... More
