A proof of the Kazdan-Warner identity via the Minkowski spacetimeFeb 05 2016Any 2-dim Riemannian manifold with spherical topology can be embedded isometrically into a lightcone of the Minkowski spacetime. We apply this fact to give a proof of the Kazdan-Warner identity.

A diffusion process associated with Fréchet meansOct 23 2015This paper studies rescaled images, under $\exp^{-1}_{\mu}$, of the sample Fr\'{e}chet means of i.i.d. random variables $\{X_k\vert k\geq 1\}$ with Fr\'{e}chet mean $\mu$ on a Riemannian manifold. We show that, with appropriate scaling, these images converge ... More
