Radon transformation on reductive symmetric spaces: support theoremsNov 26 2010Apr 03 2013We introduce a class of Radon transforms for reductive symmetric spaces, including the horospherical transforms, and study some of their properties. In particular we obtain a support theorem that generalizes Helgason's support theorem for the horospherical ... More

An inequality between multipoint Seshadri constantsApr 10 2008Let X be a projective variety of dimension n and L be a nef divisor on X. Denote by e_d(r;X,L) the d-dimensional Seshadri constant of r very general points in X. We prove that e_d(rs;X,L) >= e_d(r;X,L)e_d(s;P^n,O_{P^n}(1)).

Origin of the quasi-universality of the graphene minimal conductivityApr 15 2010Sep 16 2010It is a fact that the minimal conductivity $\sigma_0$ of most graphene samples is larger than the well-established universal value for ideal graphene $4e^2/\pi h$; in particular, larger by a factor $\gtrsim\pi$. Despite intense theoretical activity, this ... More
