Let f* be the true model among the set of k plausible models. We discuss in this ... More

Symmetric topological complexity as the first obstruction in Goodwillie's Euclidean embedding tower for real projective spacesNov 05 2009Aug 27 2010As a first goal, it is explained why Goodwillie-Weiss calculus of embeddings offers new information about the Euclidean embedding dimension of P^m only for m < 16. Concrete scenarios are described in these low-dimensional cases, pinpointing where to look ... More

Multiplicative bijections of semigroups of interval-valued continuous functionsOct 23 2007Dec 13 2007We characterize all compact and Hausdorff spaces $X$ which satisfy that for every multiplicative bijection $\phi$ on $C(X, I)$, there exist a homeomorphism $\mu : X \to X$ and a continuous map $p: X \to (0, +\infty)$ such that $$\phi (f) (x) = f(\mu (x))^{p(x)}$$ ...
