Normal Hopf subalgebras, depth two and Galois extensionsNov 06 2004Apr 06 2005Let $S$ be the left $R$-bialgebroid of a depth two extension with centralizer $R$ as defined in math.QA/0108067. We show that the left endomorphism ring of depth two extension, not necessarily balanced, is a left $S$-Galois extension of $A^{\rm op}$. ... More
On the Whitehead spectrum of the circleOct 15 2007May 22 2008The seminal work of Waldhausen, Farrell and Jones, Igusa, and Weiss and Williams shows that the homotopy groups in low degrees of the space of homeomorphisms of a closed Riemannian manifold of negative sectional curvature can be expressed as a functor ...

Fine and coarse multifractal zeta-functions: On the multifractal formalism for multifractal zeta-functionsNov 20 2014Multifractal analysis refers to the study of the local properties of measures and functions, and consists of two parts: the fine multifractal theory and the coarse multifractal theory. The fine and the coarse theory are linked by a web of conjectures ... More
Report on GRG18, Session A3, Mathematical Studies of the Field EquationsMar 31 2008Apr 01 2008In this report I will give a summary of some of the main topics covered in Session A3, mathematical studies of the field equations, at GRG18, Sydney. Unfortunately, due to length constraints, some of the topics covered at the session will be very briefly ... More
