These notes are intended as a rough guide to the eight-lecture course Introduction to Pure Mathematics which is a part of the Oxford 1st-year undergraduate course for the Preliminary Examination in Mathematics. Please do not expect a polished account. They are my personal lecture notes, not a carefully checked textbook. Nevertheless, I hope they may be of some help.

A new format for storing sparse matrices is proposed for efficient sparse matrix-vector (SpMV) product calculation on modern throughput-oriented computer architectures. This format extends the standard compressed row storage (CRS) format and is easily convertible to and from it without any memory overhead. Computational performance of an SpMV kernel for the new format is determined for over 140 sparse matrices on two Fermi-class graphics processing units (GPUs) and the efficiency of the kernel,...

Variable selection is recognized as one of the most critical steps in statistical modeling. The problems encountered in engineering and social sciences are commonly characterized by over-abundance of explanatory variables, non-linearities and unknown interdependencies between the regressors. An added difficulty is that the analysts may have little or no prior knowledge on the relative importance of the variables. To provide a robust method for model selection, this paper introduces a technique...

In a seminal paper of 2005, Nualart and Peccati discovered a surprising central limit theorem (called the "Fourth Moment Theorem" in the sequel) for sequences of multiple stochastic integrals of a fixed order: in this context, convergence in distribution to the standard normal law is equivalent to convergence of just the fourth moment. Shortly afterwards, Peccati and Tudor gave a multidimensional version of this characterization. Since the publication of these two beautiful papers,...

These notes are for a short course in set theory at the undergraduate level at Stellenbosch University. No pretense at orignality is claimed. Though ampli�ed by material from a number of additional sources, the debt to the �rst few chapters of the book Set Theory, by Thomas Jech, Springer 2003, should be easily discernible.

A considerable amount of information regarding the processes that occurred during the accretion of the early planetesimals is still present among the small bodies of our solar system.

Let $T(\Z_m \times \Z_n)$ denote the maximal number of points that can be placed on an $m \times n$ discrete torus with "no three in a line," meaning no three in a coset of a cyclic subgroup of $\Z_m \times \Z_n$. By proving upper bounds and providing explicit constructions, for distinct primes $p$ and $q$, we show that $T(\Z_p \times \Z_{p^2}) = 2p$ and $T(\Z_p \times \Z_{pq}) = p+1$. Via Gr\"obner bases, we compute $T(\Z_m \times \Z_n)$ for $2 \leq m \leq 7$ and $2 \leq n \leq...

Quantum state transfer in a triangular domain of a two-dimensional, equally-spaced, spin lat- tice with non-homogeneous nearest-neighbor couplings is analyzed. An exact solution of the one- excitation dynamics is provided in terms of 2-variable Krawtchouk orthogonal polynomials that have been recently defined. The probability amplitude for an excitation to transit from one site to another is given. For some values of the parameters, perfect transfer is shown to take place from the apex of the...

The establishment of trust relationships to a computing platform relies on validation processes. Validation allows an external entity to build trust in the expected behaviour of the platform based on provided evidence of the platform's configuration. In a process like remote attestation, the 'trusted' platform submits verification data created during a start up process. These data consist of hardware-protected values of platform configuration registers, containing nested measurement values,...

We show that grand unified theories based on SO(10) generate naturally the next-to-leading baryon number violating operators of dimension seven. These operators, which violate B-L, lead to unconventional decays of the nucleon such as n -> e^-K^+, e^- \pi^+ and p -> \nu \pi^+. In two-step breaking schemes of non-supersymmetric SO(10), nucleon lifetime for decays into these modes is found to be within reach of experiments. We also identify supersymmetric scenarios where these decays may be...

The collisional rates associated with the isotropic velocity moments $$ and the anisotropic moments $$ and $$ are exactly derived in the case of the inelastic Maxwell model as functions of the exponent $r$, the coefficient of restitution $\alpha$, and the dimensionality $d$. The results are applied to the evolution of the moments in the homogeneous free cooling state.

A generalisation of the Ginibre ensemble of non-Hermitian random square matrices is introduced. The corresponding probability measure is induced by the ensemble of rectangular Gaussian matrices via a quadratisation procedure. We derive the joint probability density of eigenvalues for such induced Ginibre ensemble and study various spectral correlation functions for complex and real matrices, and analyse universal behaviour in the limit of large dimensions. In this limit the eigenvalues of the...

In this work we construct an infinite class of four-point functions for massless higher-spin fields in flat space that are consistent with the gauge symmetry. In the Lagrangian picture, these reflect themselves in a peculiar non-local nature of the corresponding non-abelian higher-spin couplings implied by the Noether procedure that starts from the fourth order. We also comment on the nature of the colored spin-2 excitation present both in the open string spectrum and in the Vasiliev system,...

We present new supersymmetric AdS_5 M-theory backgrounds which describe these fixed points at large N, and then directly construct the dual four-dimensional CFTs for a certain subset of these solutions. Additionally, we provide a direct check of the central charges of these theories by using the M5-brane anomaly polynomial. This is a companion paper which elaborates upon...

NGC 6791 is a unique stellar system among Galactic open clusters being at the same time one of the oldest open clusters and the most metal rich. Combination of its properties is puzzling and poses question of its origin. One possible scenario is that the cluster formed close to the Galactic Center and later migrated outwards to its current location. In this work we study the cluster's orbit and investigate the possible migration processes which might have displaced NGC 6791 to its present-day...

Motivated by recent observations of non-zero $\theta_{13}$ from the Daya Bay and RENO experiments, we propose a renormalizable neutrino model with $A_4$ discrete symmetry accounting for deviations from the tri-bimaximal mixing pattern of neutrino mixing matrix indicated by neutrino oscillation data. In the model, the light neutrino masses can be generated by radiative corrections, and we show how the light neutrino mass matrix can be diagonalized by the Pontecorvo-Maki-Nakagawa-Sakata mixing...

We study the asymptotic behavior of a diffusion process with small diffusion in a domain $D$. This process is reflected at $\partial D$ with respect to a co-normal direction pointing inside $D$. Our asymptotic result is used to study the long time behavior of the solution of the corresponding parabolic PDE with Neumann boundary condition.

The standard model weak interactions can be described by four-fermion V-A operators at low energies. New physics at the TeV scale can, however, generate the other Lorentz structures. In this talk, we review the constraints on such interactions from nuclear and hadronic decays, as well as from collider searches. Currently the most stringent bounds come from the analysis of the 0+ to 0+ nuclear and the pi to e nu gamma radiative pion decays. In the near future, the ultracold neutron beta decay...

Many models of interest in the natural and social sciences have no closed-form likelihood function, which means that they cannot be treated using the usual techniques of statistical inference. In the case where such models can be efficiently simulated, Bayesian inference is still possible thanks to the Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) algorithm. Although many refinements have been suggested, ABC inference is still far from routine. ABC is often excruciatingly slow due to very low...

Consider a proper cocompact CAT(0) space X. We give a complete algebraic characterisation of amenable groups of isometries of X. For amenable discrete subgroups, an even narrower description is derived, implying Q-linearity in the torsion-free case. We establish Levi decompositions for stabilisers of points at infinity of X, generalising the case of linear algebraic groups to Is(X). A geometric counterpart of this sheds light on the refined bordification of X (\`a la Karpelevich) and leads to a...

We generalize unitarity bounds on operator dimensions in conformal field theory to field theories with spacetime dependent couplings. Below the energy scale of spacetime variation of the couplings, their evolution can strongly affect the physics, effectively shifting the infrared operator scaling and unitarity bounds determined from correlation functions in the theory. We analyze this explicitly for large-$N$ double-trace flows, and connect these to UV complete field theories. One motivating...

High-resolution Brillouin scattering is used to achieve 3-dimensional maps of the longitudinal acoustic mode frequency shift in soda-lime silicate glasses subject to Vickers indentations.

The textbook was developed over several years and has been used in regular and honors-level classroom settings and in distance learning classes. This textbook is intended for introductory statistics courses being taken by students at two� and four�year colleges who are majoring in fields other than math or engineering. Intermediate algebra is the only prerequisite. The book focuses on applications of statistical knowledge rather than the theory behind it.

In addition, a case study is presented for a specific SPM.

We study two initial value problems of the linear diffusion equation and a nonlinear diffusion equation, when Cauchy data are bounded and oscillate mildly. The latter nonlinear heat equation is the equation of the curvature flow, when the moving curves are represented by graphs. By using an elementary scaling technique, we show some formulas for space-time behavior of the solution. Keywords: scaling argument, self-similar solution, nonstabilizing solution, nontrivial dynamics, nontrivial...

Nordhaus and Gaddum proved, for any graph G, that the chromatic number of G plus the chromatic number of G complement is less than or equal to the number of vertices in G plus 1. Finck characterized the class of graphs that satisfy equality in this bound. In this paper, we provide a new characterization of this class of graphs, based on vertex degrees, which yields a new polynomial-time recognition algorithm and efficient computation of the chromatic number of graphs in this class. Our...

This paper investigates a specific smooth quintic surface suggested by Barth for it contains the current record of 75 lines over the complex numbers. Our main incentive is to prove that the complex quintic has Picard number 41, and to compute the Neron-Severi group up to a 2-power index. We also compute Picard numbers for reductions to positive characteristic and verify the Tate conjecture.

We consider an illiquid financial market with different regimes modeled by a continuous-time finite-state Markov chain. The investor can trade a stock only at the discrete arrival times of a Cox process with intensity depending on the market regime. Moreover, the risky asset price is subject to liquidity shocks, which change its rate of return and volatility, and induce jumps on its dynamics. In this setting, we study the problem of an economic agent optimizing her expected utility from...

We explore the anisotropic nature of Feshbach resonances in the collision between ultracold magnetic submerged-shell dysprosium atoms, which can only occur due to couplings to rotating bound states. This is in contrast to well-studied alkali-metal atom collisions, where most Feshbach resonances are hyperfine induced and due to rotation-less bound states. Our novel first-principle coupled-channel calculation of the collisions between open-4f-shell spin-polarized bosonic dysprosium reveals a...

The temperature dependence of the thermodynamic potential of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the specific heat, and the quark effective mass are calculated for imbalanced quark matter in the limit of a large number of quark flavors (large-$N_F$), which corresponds to the random phase approximation. Also a generalization of the relativistic Landau effective-mass relation in the imbalanced case is given, which is then applied to this thermodynamic potential.

We prove a structure theorem for topologically recurrent real skew product extensions of distal minimal compact metric flows with a compactly generated Abelian acting group (e.g. $\Z^d$-flows and $\R^d$-flows). The main result states that every such extension apart from a coboundary can be represented by a perturbation of a so-called Rokhlin skew product. We obtain as a corollary that the topological ergodic decomposition of the skew product extension into prolongations is continuous and...

Given a divisor $D$ on a tropical curve $\Gamma$, we show that reduced divisors define an integral affine map from the tropical curve to the complete linear system $|D|$. This is done by providing an explicit description of the behavior of reduced divisors under infinitesimal modifications of the base point. We consider the cases where the reduced-divisor map defines an embedding of the curve into the linear system, and in this way, classify all the tropical curves with a very ample canonical...

The noncoherent capacity of stationary discrete-time fading channels is known to be very sensitive to the fine details of the channel model. More specifically, the measure of the support of the fading-process power spectral density (PSD) determines if noncoherent capacity grows logarithmically in SNR or slower than logarithmically. Such a result is unsatisfactory from an engineering point of view, as the support of the PSD cannot be determined through measurements. The aim of this paper is to...

It has recently been observed that the permanent of a non-negative square matrix, i.e., of a square matrix containing only non-negative real entries, can very well be approximated by solving a certain Bethe free energy function minimization problem with the help of the sum-product algorithm. We call the resulting approximation of the permanent the Bethe permanent. In this paper we give reasons why this approach to approximating the permanent works well. Namely, we show that the Bethe free...

We moreover determine quantum and thermal fluctuations in the transport and find significant shot-to-shot deviations from the...

Global sensitivity analysis of a numerical code, more specifically estimation of Sobol indices associated with input variables, generally requires a large number of model runs. When those demand too much computation time, it is necessary to use a reduced model (metamodel) to perform sensitivity analysis, whose outputs are numerically close to the ones of the original model, while being much faster to run. In this case, estimated indices are subject to two kinds of errors: sampling error, caused...

Interval translation maps (ITMs) are non-invertible generalizations of interval exchanges (IETs). The dynamics of finite type ITMs is similar to IETs, while infinite type ITMs are known to exhibit new interesting effects. In this paper, we prove the finiteness conjecture for the ITMs of three intervals. Namely, the subset of ITMs of finite type is open, dense, and has full Lebesgue measure. For this, we show that any ITM of three intervals can be reduced either to a rotation or to a double...

Unlike in the classical theory, dynamical trajectories in loop quantum cosmology are generically non-singular, with a big bounce replacing classical big bang in the Planck regime. Post bounce, after a phase of super-inflation, dynamical trajectories evolve towards the classical attractor in the inflationary scenarios. Depending on...

We use partially quenched heavy hadron chiral perturbation theory in a finite volume to extract the axial couplings g_1, g_2, and g_3 from the data. These axial couplings allow the prediction of strong decay rates and enter chiral extrapolations of most lattice results in the b sector.

For partially asymmetric jumps we derive the Law of Large Numbers for...

Therefore, in the past, several algorithms were...

We present the results of wide-field deep JHK imaging of the SSA22 field using MOIRCS instrument equipped with Subaru telescope. The observed field is 112 arcmin^2 in area, which covers the z=3.1 protocluster characterized by the overdensities of Ly Alpha emitters (LAEs) and Ly Alpha Blobs (LABs). The 5 sigma limiting magnitude is K_{AB} = 24.3. We extract the potential protocluster members from the K-selected sample by using the multi-band photometric-redshift selection as well as the simple...

We found the parameterization of the unintegrated gluon distribution from the best description of the LHC data on the inclusive spectra of hadrons produced in $pp$ collisions at the mid-rapidity region and small transverse momenta. It is different from the one obtained within perturbative QCD only at low intrinsic transverse momenta $k_t$. The application of this distribution to analysis of the $e-p$ DIS allows us to get the results which do not contradict the H1 and ZEUS data on the structure...

This paper is dedicated to the proof of new maximal regularity results involving Besov spaces for the heat equation in the half-space or in bounded or exterior domains of R^n. We strive for time independent a priori estimates in regularity spaces of type L^1(0,T;X) where X stands for some homogeneous Besov space. In the case of bounded domains, the results that we get are similar to those of the whole space or of the half-space. For exterior domains, we need to use mixed Besov norms in order to...

An abstract chordal metric is defined on linear control systems described by their transfer functions. Analogous to a previous result due to Jonathan Partington ("Robust control and approximation in the chordal metric", in Robust Control, LNCIS 183, Springer, 1992) for H^infty, it is shown that strong stabilizability is a robust property in this metric.
