Spectral analysis of stable processes on the positive half-lineSep 22 2015We study the spectral expansion of the semigroup of a general stable process killed on the first exit from the positive half-line. Starting with the Wiener-Hopf factorization we obtain the q-resolvent density for the killed process, from which we derive ... More

Transportation inequalities for non-globally dissipative SDEs with jumps via Malliavin calculus and couplingOct 21 2016Nov 24 2016By using the mirror coupling for solutions of SDEs driven by pure jump L\'evy processes, we extend some transportation and concentration inequalities, which were previously known only in the case where the coefficients in the equation satisfy a global ...

Obstructions to combinatorial formulas for plethysmJul 25 2015Feb 26 2016Motivated by questions of Mulmuley and Stanley we investigate quasi-polynomials arising in formulas for plethysm. We demonstrate, on the examples of $S^3(S^k)$ and $S^k(S^3)$, that these need not be counting functions of inhomogeneous polytopes of dimension ... More

Notes on bounded induction for the compositional truth predicateDec 01 2017We prove that the theory of the extensional compositional truth predicate for the language of arithmetic with $\Delta_0$-induction scheme for the truth predicate and the full arithmetical induction scheme is not conservative over Peano Arithmetic. In ... More

Hitting times of points for symmetric Lévy processes with completely monotone jumpsMar 14 2014Apr 17 2015Small-space and large-time estimates and asymptotic expansion of the distribution function and (the derivatives of) the density function of hitting times of points for symmetric L\'evy processes are studied. The L\'evy measure is assumed to have completely ... More

Martin kernels for Markov processes with jumpsSep 18 2015We prove existence of boundary limits of ratios of positive harmonic functions for a wide class of Markov processes with jumps and irregular domains, in the context of general metric measure spaces. As a corollary, we prove uniqueness of the Martin kernel ... More

Structural and electrical properties of electrodeposited single junction of cuprous (I) oxide copperNov 03 2016Cuprous (I) oxide (Cu_{2}O) based solar cells were fabricated with the use of the electrodeposition technique at nanometre scale, and the structural, morphological and electrical properties were investigated. The Cu_{2}O layers were electrodeposited on ... More

Formation of Cystine Slipknots in Dimeric ProteinsMar 26 2013We consider mechanical stability of dimeric and monomeric proteins with the cystine knot motif. A structure based dynamical model is used to demonstrate that all dimeric and some monomeric proteins of this kind should have considerable resistance to stretching ... More

Hard to Cheat: A Turing Test based on Answering Questions about ImagesJan 14 2015Jan 15 2015Progress in language and image understanding by machines has sparkled the interest of the research community in more open-ended, holistic tasks, and refueled an old AI dream of building intelligent machines. We discuss a few prominent challenges that ... More
