The Structure of the Kauffman Bracket Skein Algebra at Roots of UnityJul 12 2016This paper is focused on the structure of the Kauffman bracket skein algebra of a punctured surface at roots of unity. A criterion that determines when a collection of skeins forms a basis of the skein algebra as an extension over the $SL(2,{\mathbb C})$ ... More

Planetesimal formation during protoplanetary disk buildupMar 01 2018Mar 08 2018Models of dust coagulation and subsequent planetesimal formation are usually computed on the backdrop of an already fully formed protoplanetary disk model. At the same time, observational studies suggest that planetesimal formation should start early, ... More
