Chains in CR geometry as geodesics of a Kropina metric
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/3c41x28c
With the help of a generalization of the Fermat principle in general
relativity, we show that chains in CR geometry are geodesics of a certain
Kropina metric constructed from the CR structure. We study the projective
equivalence of Kropina metrics and show that if the kernel distributions of the
corresponding 1forms are nonintegrable then two projectively equivalent
metrics are trivially projectively equivalent. As an application, we show that
sufficiently many chains determine the CR structure up to conjugacy,
generalizing and reproving the main result of [J.H. Cheng, 1988]. The
correspondence between geodesics of the Kropina metric and chains allows us to
use the methods of metric geometry and the calculus of variations to study
chains. We use these methods to reprove the result of [H. Jacobowitz, 1985]
that locally any two points of a strictly pseudoconvex CR manifolds can be
joined by a chain. Finally, we generalize this result to the global setting by
showing that any...

On the uniqueness of the foliation of spheres of constant mean curvature in asymptotically flat 3manifolds
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9nj5n7m9
In this note we study constant mean curvature surfaces in asymptotically flat
3manifolds. We prove that, in an asymptotically flat 3manifold with positive
mass, stable spheres of given constant mean curvature outside a fixed compact
subset are unique. Therefore we are able to conclude that there is a unique
foliation of stable spheres of constant mean curvature in an asymptotically
flat 3manifold with positive mass.

On $n$superharmonic functions and some geometric applications
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9fm2d9s6
In this paper we study asymptotic behavior of $n$superharmonic functions at
isolated singularity using the Wolff potential and $n$capacity estimates in
nonlinear potential theory. Our results are inspired by and extend those of
ArsoveHuber and Taliaferro in 2 dimensions. To study $n$superharmonic
functions we use a new notion of $n$thinness by $n$capacity motivated by a
type of Wiener criterion in ArsoveHuber's paper. To extend Taliaferro's work,
we employ the AdamsMoserTrudinger inequality for the Wolff potential, which
is inspired by the one used by BrezisMerle. For geometric applications, we
study the asymptotic end behavior of complete conformally flat manifolds as
well as complete properly embedded hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space. In both
geometric applications the strong $n$capacity lower bound estimate of Gehring
in 1961 is brilliantly used. These geometric applications seem to elevate the
importance of $n$Laplace equations and make a closer tie to the classic
analysis...

Norm inflation for incompressible magnetohydrodynamic system ]{Norm inflation for incompressible magnetohydrodynamic system in $\dot{B}_{\infty}^{1,\infty}$
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9714r4zn
We demonstrate that the solutions to the Cauchy problem for the three
dimensional incompressible magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) system can develop
diferent types of norm inflations in $\dot{B}_{\infty}^{1, \infty}$.
Particularly the magnetic field can develop norm inflation in short time even
when the velocity remains small and vice verse. Efforts are made to present a
very expository development of the inginious construction of Bourgain and
Pavlovi\'{c} for NavierStokes equation.

Weakly horospherically convex hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/8df3j0tn
In [2], the authors develop a global correspondence between immersed weakly
horospherically convex hypersurfaces $\phi:M^n \to \mathbb{H}^{n+1}$ and a
class of conformal metrics on domains of the round sphere $\mathbb{S}^n$. Some
of the key aspects of the correspondence and its consequences have dimensional
restrictions $n\geq3$ due to the reliance on an analytic proposition from [5]
concerning the asymptotic behavior of conformal factors of conformal metrics on
domains of $\mathbb{S}^n$. In this paper, we prove a new lemma about the
asymptotic behavior of a functional combining the gradient of the conformal
factor and itself, which allows us to extend the global correspondence and
embeddedness theorems of [2] to all dimensions $n\geq2$ in a unified way. In
the case of a single point boundary $\partial_{\infty}\phi(M)=\{x\} \subset
\mathbb{S}^n$, we improve these results in one direction. As an immediate
consequence of this improvement and the work on elliptic problems in [2],...

Compactness of conformally compact Einstein 4manifolds II

In this paper, we establish compactness results of some class of conformally
compact Einstein 4manifolds. In the first part of the paper, we improve the
earlier results obtained by ChangGe. In the second part of the paper, as
applications, we derive some compactness results under perturbation conditions
when the L^2norm of the Weyl curvature is small. We also derive the global
uniqueness of conformally compact Einstein metrics on the 4Ball constructed in
the earlier work of GrahamLee.

Hypersurfaces in Hyperbolic Poincaré Manifolds and Conformally Invariant PDEs
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/49t4v63w
We derive a relationship between the eigenvalues of the WeylSchouten tensor
of a conformal representative of the conformal infinity of a hyperbolic
Poincar\'e manifold and the principal curvatures on the level sets of its
uniquely associated defining function with calculations based on [9] [10]. This
relationship generalizes the result for hypersurfaces in ${\H}^{n+1}$ and their
connection to the conformal geometry of ${\SS}^n$ as exhibited in [7] and gives
a correspondence between Weingarten hypersurfaces in hyperbolic Poincar\'e
manifolds and conformally invariant equations on the conformal infinity. In
particular, we generalize an equivalence exhibited in [7] between
Christoffeltype problems for hypersurfaces in ${\H}^{n+1}$ and scalar
curvature problems on the conformal infinity ${\SS}^n$ to hyperbolic Poincar\'e
manifolds.

Hypersurfaces with nonnegative Ricci curvature in hyperbolic space
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/2pz5z60q
Based on properties of nsubharmonic functions we show that a complete,
noncompact, properly embedded hypersurface with nonnegative Ricci curvature in
hyperbolic space has an asymptotic boundary at infinity of at most two points.
Moreover, the presence of two points in the asymptotic boundary is a rigidity
condition that forces the hypersurface to be an equidistant hypersurface about
a geodesic line in hyperbolic space. This gives an affirmative answer to the
question raised by Alexander and Currier in 1990.

On the topology of conformally compact Einstein 4manifolds
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/1rs6r4kk
In this paper we study the topology of conformally compact Einstein
4manifolds. When the conformal infinity has positive Yamabe invariant and the
renormalized volume is also positive we show that the conformally compact
Einstein 4manifold will have at most finite fundamental group. Under the
further assumption that the renormalized volume is relatively large, we
conclude that the conformally compact Einstein 4manifold is diffeomorphic to
$B^4$ and its conformal infinity is diffeomorphic to $S^3$.

GrothendieckNeeman duality and the Wirthmiiller isomorphism
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/3fk4x3fm
We clarify the relationship between Grothendieck duality à la Neeman and the Wirthmüller isomorphism à la Fausk–Hu–May. We exhibit an interesting pattern of symmetry in the existence of adjoint functors between compactly generated tensortriangulated categories, which leads to a surprising trichotomy: there exist either exactly three adjoints, exactly five, or infinitely many. We highlight the importance of socalled relative dualizing objects and explain how they give rise to dualities on canonical subcategories. This yields a duality theory rich enough to capture the main features of Grothendieck duality in algebraic geometry, of generalized Pontryagin–Matlis duality à la Dwyer–Greenless–Iyengar in the theory of ring spectra, and of Brown–Comenetz duality à la Neeman in stable homotopy theory.

On Picard groups of blocks of finite groups
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9512b72c
We show that the subgroup of the Picard group of a $p$block of a finite
group given by bimodules with endopermutation sources modulo the automorphism
group of a source algebra is determined locally in terms of the fusion system
on a defect group. We show that the Picard group of a block over the a complete
discrete valuation ring ${\mathcal O}$ of characteristic zero with an algebraic
closure $k$ of ${\mathbb F}_p$ as residue field is a colimit of finite Picard
groups of blocks over $p$adic subrings of ${\mathcal O}$. We apply the results
to blocks with an abelian defect group and Frobenius inertial quotient, and
specialise this further to blocks with cyclic or Klein four defect groups.

Fibered biset functors
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/8b48v9p1
The theory of biset functors, introduced by Serge Bouc, gives a unified
treatment of operations in representation theory that are induced by
permutation bimodules. In this paper, by considering fibered bisets, we
introduce and describe the basic theory of fibered biset functors which is a
natural framework for operations induced by monomial bimodules. The main result
of this paper is the classification of simple fibered biset functors.

The (+) and (+) constructions for biset functors

In this article we define the $_+$construction and the $^+$construction,
that was crucial in the theory of canonical induction formulas (see
\cite{Boltje1998b}), in the setting of biset functors, thus providing the
necessary framework to define and construct canonical induction formulas for
representation rings that are most naturally viewed as biset functors.
Additionally, this provides a unified approach to the study of a class of
functors including the Burnside ring, the monomial Burnside ring and global
representation ring.

Blocks in the asymmetric simple exclusion process
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/44c3g3xm
In earlier work, the authors obtained formulas for the probability in the asymmetric simple exclusion process that the mth particle from the left is at site x at time t. They were expressed in general as sums of multiple integrals and, for the case of step initial condition, as an integral involving a Fredholm determinant. In the present work, these results are generalized to the case where the mth particle is the leftmost one in a contiguous block of L particles. The earlier work depended in a crucial way on two combinatorial identities, and the present work begins with a generalization of these identities to general L.

Airy Kernel and Painleve II

We prove that the distribution function of the largest eigenvalue in the Gaussian
Unitary Ensemble (GUE) in the edge scaling limit is expressible in terms of Painlev\'e II.
Our goal is to concentrate on this important example of the connection between random
matrix theory and integrable systems, and in so doing to introduce the newcomer to the
subject as a whole. We also give sketches of the results for the limiting distribution of
the largest eigenvalue in the Gaussian Orthogonal Ensemble (GOE) and the Gaussian
Symplectic Ensemble (GSE). This work we did some years ago in a more general setting. These
notes, therefore, are not meant for experts in the field.

Asymptotics of a Class of Solutions to the Cylindrical Toda Equations
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9j9670wn
The small t asymptotics of a class of solutions to the 2D cylindrical Toda
equations is computed. The solutions, q_k(t), have the representation q_k(t) = log
det(Ilambda K_k)  log det(Ilambda K_{k1}) where K_k are integral operators. This class
includes the nperiodic cylindrical Toda equations. For n=2 our results reduce to the
previously computed asymptotics of the 2D radial sinhGordon equation and for n=3 (and with
an additional symmetry contraint) they reduce to earlier results for the radial
BulloughDodd equation.

On ASEP with Step Bernoulli Initial Condition

This paper extends results of earlier work on ASEP to the case of step Bernoulli
initial condition. The main results are a representation in terms of a Fredholm determinant
for the probability distribution of a fixed particle, and asymptotic results which in
particular establish KPZ universality for this probability in one regime. (And, as a
corollary, for the current fluctuations.)

Fluctuations in the composite regime of a disordered growth model
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9fq5t704
We continue to study a model of disordered interface growth in two dimensions. The
interface is given by a height function on the sites of the onedimensional integer
lattice and grows in discrete time: (1) the height above the site $x$ adopts the height
above the site to its left if the latter height is larger, (2) otherwise, the height above
$x$ increases by 1 with probability $p_x$. We assume that $p_x$ are chosen independently at
random with a common distribution $F$, and that the initial state is such that the origin
is far above the other sites. Provided that the tails of the distribution $F$ at its right
edge are sufficiently thin, there exists a nontrivial composite regime in which the
fluctuations of this interface are governed by extremal statistics of $p_x$. In the
quenched case, the said fluctuations are asymptotically normal, while in the annealed case
they satisfy the appropriate...

Asymptotics in ASEP with Step Initial Condition
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9899n7n7
In previous work the authors considered the asymmetric simple exclusion process on
the integer lattice in the case of step initial condition, particles beginning at the
positive integers. There it was shown that the probability distribution for the position of
an individual particle is given by an integral whose integrand involves a Fredholm
determinant. Here we use this formula to obtain three asymptotic results for the positions
of these particles. In one an apparently new distribution function arises and in another
the distribuion function F_2 arises. The latter extends a result of Johansson on TASEP to
ASEP.

We consider the asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integers in which
the initial density at a site (the probability that it is occupied) is given by a periodic
function on the positive integers. (When the function is constant this is the step
Bernoulli initial condition.) Starting with a result in earlier work we find a formula for
the probability distribution for a given particle at a given time which is a sum over
positive integers k of integrals of order k.

Differential Equations for Dyson Processes
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/8jd537h0
We call "Dyson process" any process on ensembles of matrices in which the entries
undergo diffusion. We are interested in the distribution of the eigenvalues (or singular
values) of such matrices. In the original Dyson process it was the ensemble of n by n
Hermitian matrices, and the eigenvalues describe n curves. Given sets X_1,...,X_m the
probability that for each k no curve passes through X_k at time \tau_k is given by the
Fredholm determinant of a certain matrix kernel, the extended Hermite kernel. For this
reason we call this Dyson process the Hermite process. Similarly, when the entries of a
complex matrix undergo diffusion we call the evolution of its singular values the Laguerre
process, for which there is a corresponding extended Laguerre kernel. Scaling the Hermite
process at the edge leads to the Airy process and in the bulk to the sine process; scaling

Correlation Functions, Cluster Functions and Spacing Distributions for Random

The usual formulas for the correlation functions in orthogonal and symplectic
matrix models express them as quaternion determinants. From this representation one can

matrixvalued kernels. The derivations of the various formulas are somewhat involved. In
this article we present a direct approach which leads immediately to scalar kernels for
unitary ensembles and matrix kernels for the orthogonal and symplectic ensembles, and the

in terms of them.

Limit Theorems for Height Fluctuations in a Class of Discrete Space and Time Growth
Models
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/8f51w562
We introduce a class of onedimensional discrete spacediscrete time stochastic
growth models described by a height function $h_t(x)$ with corner initialization. We prove,
with one exception, that the limiting distribution function of $h_t(x)$ (suitably centered
and normalized) equals a Fredholm determinant previously encountered in random matrix
theory. In particular, in the universal regime of large $x$ and large $t$ the limiting
distribution is the Fredholm determinant with Airy kernel. In the exceptional case, called
the critical regime, the limiting distribution seems not to have previously occurred. The
proofs use the dual RSK algorithm, Gessel's theorem, the BorodinOkounkov identity and a
novel, rigorous saddle point analysis. In the fixed $x$, large $t$ regime, we find a
Brownian motion representation. This model is equivalent to the Sepp\"al\"ainenJohansson
model. Hence some of...

Fredholm Determinants, Differential Equations and Matrix Models

Orthogonal polynomial random matrix models of NxN hermitian matrices lead to
Fredholm determinants of integral operators with kernel of the form (phi(x) psi(y)  psi(x)
phi(y))/xy. This paper is concerned with the Fredholm determinants of integral operators
having kernel of this form and where the underlying set is a union of open intervals. The
emphasis is on the determinants thought of as functions of the endpoints of these
intervals. We show that these Fredholm determinants with kernels of the general form
described above are expressible in terms of solutions of systems of PDE's as long as phi
and psi satisfy a certain type of differentiation formula. There is also an exponential
variant of this analysis which includes the circular ensembles of NxN unitary matrices.

A Fredholm Determinant Representation in ASEP
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/8b20z95h
In previous work the authors found integral formulas for probabilities in the
asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integer lattice. The dynamics are
uniquely determined once the initial state is specified. In this note we restrict our
attention to the case of step initial condition with particles at the positive integers,
and consider the distribution function for the m'th particle from the left. In the previous
work an infinite series of multiple integrals was derived for this distribution. In this
note we show that the series can be summed to give a single integral whose integrand
involves a Fredholm determinant. We use this determinant representation to derive
(nonrigorously, at this writing) a scaling limit.

The Pearcey Process

The extended Airy kernel describes the spacetime correlation functions for the

functions themselves are given by integrals in which the exponents have a cubic
singularity, arising from the coalescence of two saddle points in an asymptotic analysis.
Pearcey functions are given by integrals in which the exponents have a quartic singularity,
arising from the coalescence of three saddle points. A corresponding Pearcey kernel appears
in a random matrix model and a Brownian motion model for a fixed time. This paper derives
an extended Pearcey kernel by scaling the Brownian motion model at several times, and a
system of partial differential equations whose solution determines associated distribution
functions. We expect there to be a limiting nonstationary process consisting of infinitely
many paths, which we call...

A Limit Theorem for Shifted Schur Measures
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/7gs562vg
To each partition $\lambda$ with distinct parts we assign the probability
$Q_\lambda(x) P_\lambda(y)/Z$ where $Q_\lambda$ and $P_\lambda$ are the Schur $Q$functions
and $Z$ is a normalization constant. This measure, which we call the shifted Schur measure,
is analogous to the muchstudied Schur measure. For the specialization of the first $m$
coordinates of $x$ and the first $n$ coordinates of $y$ equal to $\alpha$
($0<\alpha<1$) and the rest equal to zero, we derive a limit law for $\lambda_1$ as
$m,n\ra\infty$ with $\tau=m/n$ fixed. For the Schur measure the $\alpha$specialization
limit law was derived by Johansson. Our main result implies that the two limit laws are
identical.

https://escholarship.org/uc/item/7dc8c391
The focus of this paper is on the probability, $E_\beta(0;J)$, that a set $J$
consisting of a finite union of intervals contains no eigenvalues for the finite $N$
Gaussian Orthogonal ($\beta=1$) and Gaussian Symplectic ($\beta=4$) Ensembles and their
respective scaling limits both in the bulk and at the edge of the spectrum. We show how
these probabilities can be expressed in terms of quantities arising in the corresponding
unitary ($\beta=2$) ensembles. Our most explicit new results concern the distribution of
the largest eigenvalue in each of these ensembles. In the edge scaling limit we show that
these largest eigenvalue distributions are given in terms of a particular Painlev\'e II
function.

On the diagonal susceptibility of the 2D Ising model

We consider the diagonal susceptibility of the isotropic 2D Ising model for
temperatures below the critical temperature. For a parameter k related to temperature and
the interaction constant, we extend the diagonal susceptibility to complex k inside the
unit disc, and prove the conjecture that the unit circle is a natural boundary.

For the asymmetric simple exclusion process on the integer lattice with twosided
Bernoulli initial condition, we derive exact formulas for the following quantities: (1) the
probability that site x is occupied at time t; (2) a correlation function, the probability
that site 0 is occupied at time 0 and site x is occupied at time t; (3) the distribution
function for the total flux across 0 at time t and its exponential generating function.

Hamiltonian Structure of Equations Appearing in Random Matrices
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/7405c948
The level spacing distributions in the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble, both in the
``bulk of the spectrum,'' given by the Fredholm determinant of the operator with the sine
kernel ${\sin \pi(xy) \over \pi(xy)}$ and on the ``edge of the spectrum,'' given by the
Airy kernel ${\rm{Ai}(x) \rm{Ai}'(y)  \rm{Ai}(y) \rm{Ai}'(x) \over (xy)}$, are determined
by compatible systems of nonautonomous Hamiltonian equations. These may be viewed as
special cases of isomonodromic deformation equations for first order $ 2\times 2 $ matrix
differential operators with regular singularities at finite points and irregular ones of
Riemann index 1 or 2 at $\infty$. Their Hamiltonian structure is explained within the
classical Rmatrix framework as the equations induced by spectral invariants on the loop
algebra ${\tilde{sl}(2)}$, restricted to a Poisson subspace of its dual space

LevelSpacing Distributions and the Bessel Kernel

The level spacing distributions which arise when one rescales the Laguerre or
Jacobi ensembles of hermitian matrices is studied. These distributions are expressible in
terms of a Fredholm determinant of an integral operator whose kernel is expressible in
terms of Bessel functions of order $\alpha$. We derive a system of partial differential
equations associated with the logarithmic derivative of this Fredholm determinant when the
underlying domain is a union of intervals. In the case of a single interval this Fredholm
determinant is a Painleve tau function.

Scaling levelspacing distribution functions in the ``bulk of the spectrum'' in
random matrix models of $N\times N$ hermitian matrices and then going to the limit

kernel $[{\rm Ai}(x) {\rm Ai}'(y) {\rm Ai}'(x) {\rm Ai}(y)]/(xy)$. We announce analogies
for this Airy kernel of the following properties of the sine kernel: the completely
integrable system of P.D.E.'s found by Jimbo, Miwa, M{\^o}ri and Sato; the expression, in
the case of a single interval, of the Fredholm determinant in terms of a Painlev{\'e}

Random Unitary Matrices, Permutations and Painleve

This paper is concerned with certain connections between the ensemble of n x n
unitary matrices  specifically the characteristic function of the random variable tr(U)
 and combinatorics  specifically Ulam's problem concerning the distribution of the
length of the longest increasing subsequence in permutation groups  and the appearance of
Painleve functions in the answers to apparently unrelated questions. Among the results is a
representation in terms of a Painleve V function for the characteristic function of tr(U)
and (using recent results of Baik, Deift and Johansson) an expression in terms of a
Painleve II function for the limiting distribution of the length of the longest increasing

Introduction to Random Matrices
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/3w1317n7
These notes provide an introduction to the theory of random matrices. The central
quantity studied is $\tau(a)= det(1K)$ where $K$ is the integral operator with kernel
$1/\pi} {\sin\pi(xy)\over xy} \chi_I(y)$. Here $I=\bigcup_j(a_{2j1},a_{2j})$ and
$\chi_I(y)$ is the characteristic function of the set $I$. In the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble
(GUE) the probability that no eigenvalues lie in $I$ is equal to $\tau(a)$. Also $\tau(a)$
is a taufunction and we present a new simplified derivation of the system of nonlinear
completely integrable equations (the $a_j$'s are the independent variables) that were first
derived by Jimbo, Miwa, M{\^o}ri, and Sato in 1980. In the case of a single interval these
equations are reducible to a Painlev{\'e} V equation. For large $s$ we give an asymptotic
formula for $E_2(n;s)$, which is the probability in the GUE that exactly $n$ eigenvalues
lie in an interval...

Nonintersecting Brownian excursions

We consider the process of $n$ Brownian excursions conditioned to be
nonintersecting. We show the distribution functions for the top curve and the bottom curve
are equal to Fredholm determinants whose kernel we give explicitly. In the simplest case,
these determinants are expressible in terms of Painlev\'{e} V functions. We prove that as
$n\to \infty$, the distributional limit of the bottom curve is the Bessel process with
parameter 1/2. (This is the Bessel process associated with Dyson's Brownian motion.) We
apply these results to study the expected area under the bottom and top curves.

We consider the distributions of the lengths of the longest weakly increasing and

of these distribution functions and show that they are expressible in terms of solutions of
Painlev\'e V equations. We show further that in the weakly increasing case the generating
function gives the distribution of the smallest eigenvalue in the k x k Laguerre random
matrix ensemble and that the distribution itself has, after centering and normalizing, an N
> infinity limit which is equal to the distribution function for the largest eigenvalue
in the Gaussian Unitary Ensemble of k x k hermitian matrices of trace zero.

The Bose Gas and Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process on the HalfLine

In this paper we find explicit formulas for: (1) Green's function for a system of
onedimensional bosons interacting via a deltafunction potential with particles confined
to the positive halfline; and (2) the transition probability for the onedimensional
asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) with particles confined to the nonnegative
integers. These are both for systems with a finite number of particles. The formulas are
analogous to ones obtained earlier for the Bose gas and ASEP on the line and integers,
respectively. We use coordinate Bethe Ansatz appropriately modified to account for
confinement of the particles to the halfline. As in the earlier work, the proof for the
ASEP is less straightforward than for the Bose gas.

A growth model in a random environment
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/0zq7g7f3
We consider a model of interface growth in two dimensions, given by a height
function on the sites of the onedimensional integer lattice. According to the discrete
time update rule, the height above the site $x$ increases to the height above $x1$, if the
latter height is larger; otherwise the height above $x$ increases by 1 with probability
$p_x$. We assume that $p_x$ are chosen independently at random with a common distribution
$F$, and that the initial state is such that the origin is far above the other sites. We
explicitly identify the asymptotic shape and prove that, in the pure regime, the
fluctuations about that shape, normalized by the square root of time, are asymptotically
normal. This contrasts with the quenched version: conditioned on the environment, and
normalized by the cube root of time, the fluctuations almost surely approach a distribution
known from random matrix theory.

Integral Formulas for the Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Process

In this paper we obtain general integral formulas for probabilities in the
asymmetric simple exclusion process (ASEP) on the integer lattice with nearest neighbor
hopping rates p to the right and q=1p to the left. For the most part we consider an
Nparticle system but for certain of these formulas we can take the limit as N goes to
infinity. First we obtain, for the Nparticle system, a formula for the probability of a
configuration at time t, given the initial configuration. For this we use Bethe Ansatz
ideas to solve the master equation, extending a result of Schuetz for the case N=2. The
main results of the paper, derived from this, are integral formulas for the probability,
for given initial configuration, that the m'th leftmost particle is at x at time t. In one
of these formulas we can take the limit as N goes to infinity, and it gives the probability

For a surface in 3sphere, by identifying the conformal round 3sphere as the

homogeneous 4surface in Minkowski 5spacetime. We then derive the local
fundamental theorem for a surface in conformal round 3sphere from that of the
associate 4surface in Minkowski 5spacetime. More importantly, following the
idea of Fefferman and Graham, we construct local scalar invariants for a
surface in conformal round 3sphere. One distinct feature of our construction
is to link the classic work of Blaschke to the works of Bryan and

In this paper we study static spaces introduced in Hawking and Ellis (1975) [1], Fischer and Marsden (1975) [3] and Riemannian manifolds possessing solutions to the critical point equation introduced in Besse (1987) [11], Hwang (2000) [12]. In both cases, on the manifolds there is a function satisfying a particular RicciHessian type equation (1.6). With an idea similar to that used in Cao et al. (2012) [15,16], we have made progress in solving the problem raised in Fischer and Marsden (1975) [3] of classifying vacuum static spaces and in proving the conjecture proposed in Besse (1987) [11] concerning manifolds admitting solutions to the critical point equation in general dimensions. We obtain even stronger results in dimension 3. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

GAP PHENOMENA AND CURVATURE ESTIMATES FOR CONFORMALLY COMPACT EINSTEIN MANIFOLDS

In this paper we first use the result in $[12]$ to remove the assumption of
the $L^2$ boundedness of Weyl curvature in the gap theorem in $[9]$ and then
obtain a gap theorem for a class of conformally compact Einstein manifolds with
very large renormalized volume. We also uses the blowup method to derive
curvature estimates for conformally compact Einstein manifolds with large
renormalized volume. The second part of this paper is on conformally compact
Einstein manifolds with conformal infinities of large Yamabe constants. Based
on the idea in $[15]$ we manage to give the complete proof of the relative
volume inequality $(1.9)$ on conformally compact Einstein manifolds. Therefore
we obtain the complete proof of the rigidity theorem for conformally compact
Einstein manifolds in general dimensions with no spin structure assumption (cf.

compact Einstein manifolds with conformal infinities of very large Yamabe

Hypersurfaces in hyperbolic space with support function

Based on [19], we develop a global correspondence between immersed hypersurfaces ϕ:Mn→Hn+1 satisfying an exterior horosphere condition, also called here horospherically concave hypersurfaces, and complete conformal metrics e2ρgSn on domains Ω in the boundary Sn at infinity of Hn+1, where ρ is the horospherical support function, ∂∞ϕ(M<sup>n</sup>)=∂Ω, and Ω is the image of the Gauss map G:Mn→Sn. To do so we first establish results on when the Gauss map G:Mn→Sn is injective. We also discuss when an immersed horospherically concave hypersurface can be unfolded along the normal flow into an embedded one. These results allow us to establish general Alexandrov reflection principles for elliptic problems of both immersed hypersurfaces in Hn+1 and conformal metrics on domains in Sn. Consequently, we are able to obtain, for instance, a strong Bernstein theorem for a complete, immersed, horospherically concave hypersurface in Hn+1 of constant mean curvature.

On scalar curvature rigidity of vacuum static spaces
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/55c6k9ht
In this paper we extend the local scalar curvature rigidity result in [6] to
a small domain on general vacuum static spaces, which confirms the interesting
dichotomy of local surjectivity and local rigidity about the scalar curvature
in general in the light of the paper [10]. We obtain the local scalar curvature
rigidity of bounded domains in hyperbolic spaces. We also obtain the global
scalar curvature rigidity for conformal deformations of metrics in the domains,
where the lapse functions are positive, on vacuum static spaces with positive
scalar curvature, and show such domains are maximal, which generalizes the work
in [15].

Möbius and Laguerre geometry of Dupin Hypersurfaces
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/4kg558b7
In this paper we show that a Dupin hypersurface with constant M\"{o}bius
curvatures is M\"{o}bius equivalent to either an isoparametric hypersurface in
the sphere or a cone over an isoparametric hypersurface in a sphere. We also
show that a Dupin hypersurface with constant Laguerre curvatures is Laguerre
equivalent to a flat Laguerre isoparametric hypersurface. These results solve
the major issues related to the conjectures of Cecil et al on the
classification of Dupin hypersurfaces.

A note on conformal Ricci flow
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/2m079191
In this note we study the conformal Ricci flow that Arthur Fischer introduced in 2004. We use DeTurck's trick to rewrite the conformal Ricci flow as a strong parabolicelliptic partial differential equation. Then we prove shorttime existence for the conformal Ricci flow on compact manifolds as well as on asymptotically flat manifolds. We show that the Yamabe constant is monotonically increasing along conformal Ricci flow on compact manifolds. We also show that the conformal Ricci flow is the gradient flow for the ADM mass on asymptotically flat manifolds. © 2014 Mathematical Sciences Publishers.

Fractional conformal laplacians and fractional yamabe problems
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/1pr7j4bj
Based on the relations between scattering operators of asymptotically hyperbolic metrics and Dirichletto Neumann operators of uniformly degenerate elliptic boundary value problems observed by Chang and González, we formulate fractional Yamabe problems that include the boundary Yamabe problem studied by Escobar. We observe an interesting Hopftype maximum principle together with interplay between analysis of weighted trace Sobolev inequalities and conformal structure of the underlying manifolds, which extends the phenomena displayed in the classic Yamabe problem and boundary Yamabe problem. © 2013 Mathematical Sciences Publishers.

Integral Eisenstein cocycles on GLn, II: Shintani's method
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/9fz4f7n6
We define a cocycle on GLn(Q) using Shintani's method. This construction is closely related to earlier work of Solomon and Hill, but differs in that the cocycle property is achieved through the introduction of an auxiliary perturbation vector Q. As a corollary of our result we obtain a new proof of a theorem of Diaz y Diaz and Friedman on signed fundamental domains, and give a cohomological reformulation of Shintani's proof of the KlingenSiegel rationality theorem on partial zeta functions of totally real fields. Next we relate the Shintani cocycle to the Sczech cocycle by showing that the two differ by the sum of an explicit coboundary and a simple "polar" cocycle. This generalizes a result of Sczech and Solomon in the case n = 2. Finally, we introduce an integral version of our cocycle by smoothing at an auxiliary prime l. This integral refinement has strong arithmetic consequences. We showed in previous work that certain specializations of the smoothed class yield the padic...

The padic Lfunctions of evil Eisenstein series
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/7k657713
We compute the padic Lfunctions of evil Eisenstein series, showing that they factor as products of two KubotaLeopoldt padic Lfunctions times a logarithmic term. This proves in particular a conjecture of Glenn Stevens.

Bubblesandcrashes:Gradientdynamicsinﬁnancial markets
https://escholarship.org/uc/item/3905j8kq
<p>Fund managers respond to the payoff gradient by continuously adjusting leverage in our analytic and simulation models. The base model has a stable equilibrium with classic properties. However, bubbles and crashes occur in extended models incorporating an endogenous market risk premium based on investors' historical losses and constantgain learning. When losses have been small for a long time, asset prices inflate as fund managers increase leverage. Then slight losses can trigger a crash, as a widening risk premium accelerates deleveraging and asset price declines.</p>
