Constraints on Velocity Dispersion Function of Early-type Galaxies from the Statistics of Strong Gravitational LensingJan 18 2005May 30 2005We use the distribution of gravitationally-lensed image separations observed in the Cosmic Lens All-Sky Survey (CLASS) and the PMN-NVSS Extragalactic Lens Survey (PANELS), which are (nearly) complete for the image separation range $0''.3 \le \Delta \theta ...

Galaxy evolution from strong lensing statistics: the differential evolution of the velocity dispersion function in concord with the LambdaCDM paradigmNov 04 2008Nov 21 2009We study galaxy evolution from z=1 to z=0 as a function of velocity dispersion sigma for galaxies with sigma > 95 km/s based on the measured and Monte Carlo realised local velocity dispersion functions (VDFs) of galaxies and the revised statistical properties ...

Fast and Accurate Fourier Series Solutions to Gravitational Lensing by A General Family of Two Power-Law Mass DistributionsDec 10 2001Fourier series solutions to the deflection and magnification by a family of three-dimensional cusped two power-law ellipsoidal mass distributions are presented. The cusped two power-law ellipsoidal mass distributions are characterized by inner and outer ... More

Ratio coordinates for higher Teichmüller spacesJul 11 2014Nov 25 2015We define new coordinates for Fock-Goncharov's higher Teichm\"uller spaces for a surface with holes, which are the moduli spaces of representations of the fundamental group into a reductive Lie group $G$. Some additional data on the boundary leads to ... More

Geometry and Arithmetic on the Siegel-Jacobi SpaceFeb 28 2017The Siegel-Jacobi space is a non-symmetric homogeneous space which is very important geometrically and arithmetically. In this paper, we discuss the theory of the geometry and the arithmetic of the Siegel-Jacobi space.

Structure of heavy baryons in a pion mean-field approachFeb 08 2019In this talk, we briefly review a series of recent works on singly heavy baryons, based on a pion mean-field approach. In the limit of the infinitely heavy quark mass, heavy baryons are governed mainly by the light degress of freedom. Taking the number ... More

A note on invariant differential operators on Siegel-Jacobi spaceNov 13 2006Jul 04 2011In this article, we investigate differential operators on the Siegel-Jacobi space that are invariant under the natural action of the Jacobi group. These invariant differential operators play an important role in the arithmetic theory of Jacobi forms of ... More
