A Shrinking Target Problem with Target at Infinity in Rank One Homogeneous SpacesOct 06 2016Jun 11 2019In this paper, we give a definition of Diophantine points of type $\gamma$ for $\gamma\geq0$ in a homogeneous space $G/\Gamma$, and compute the Hausdorff dimension of the subset of points which are not Diophantine of type $\gamma$ when $G$ is a semisimple ...

The chord index, its definitions, applications and generalizationsJun 05 2016In this paper we study the chord index of virtual knots, which can be thought of as an extension of the chord parity. We show how to use the chord index to define finite type invariants of virtual knots. The notions of indexed Jones polynomial and indexed ... More

A Constructive Algebraic Proof of Student's TheoremJun 21 2018Student's theorem is an important result in statistics which states that for normal population, the sample variance is independent from the sample mean and has a chi-square distribution. The existing proofs of this theorem either overly rely on advanced ... More
