A magnetostatic energy formula arising from the $L^2$-orthogonal decomposition of the stray fieldNov 07 2016Jul 23 2018A formula for the magnetostatic energy of a finite magnet is proven. In contrast to common approaches, the new energy identity does not rely on evaluation of a nonlocal boundary integral inside the magnet or the solution of an equivalent Dirichlet problem. ... More

Spectral inequalities for Jacobi operators and related sharp Lieb-Thirring inequalities on the continuumOct 14 2013In this paper we approximate a Schr\"odinger operator on $L^2(\R)$ by Jacobi operators on $\ell^2(\Z)$ to provide new proofs of sharp Lieb-Thirring inequalities for the powers $\gamma=1/2$ and $\gamma=3/2$. To this end we first investigate spectral inequalities ... More

Gorensteinness and iteration of Cox rings for Fano type varietiesMar 19 2019We show that finitely generated Cox rings are Gorenstein. This leads to a refined characterization of varieties of Fano type: they are exactly those projective varieties with Gorenstein canonical quasicone Cox ring. We then show that for varieties of ...

Contractive Families on Compact SpacesDec 02 2013A family f_1,...,f_n of operators on a complete metric space X is called contractive if there exists lambda < 1 such that for any x,y in X we have d(f_i(x),f_i(y)) leq lambda d(x,y) for some i. Stein conjectured that for any contractive family there is ... More

Classification theorem for strong triangle blocking arrangementsSep 23 2018A strong triangle blocking arrangement is a geometric arrangement of some line segments in a triangle with certain intersection properties. It turns out that they are closely related to blocking sets. Our aim in this paper is to prove a classification ... More

Long-Range Superharmonic Josephson CurrentJan 27 2011Jul 23 2011We consider a long superconductor-ferromagnet-superconductor junction with one spin-active region. It is shown that an \textit{odd} number of Cooper pairs cannot have a long-range propagation when there is \textit{only one} spin-active region. When temperature ... More

Polynomial bound for partition rank in terms of analytic rankFeb 26 2019Let $G_1, \dots, G_k$ be vector spaces over a finite field $\mathbb{F} = \mathbb{F}_q$ with a non-trivial additive character $\chi$. The analytic rank of a multilinear form $\alpha \colon G_1 \times \dots \times G_k \to \mathbb{F}$ is defined as $\operatorname{arank}(\alpha) ... More
