Symplectic reflection algebras are attached to any finite group G of automorphisms of a symplectic vector space V , and are a multiparameter deformation of the smash product TV ?G, where TV is the tensor algebra. Their ...

We construct a family of Lagrangian submanifolds in the LandauGinzburg mirror to the projective plane equipped with a binodal cubic curve as anticanonical divisor. These objects correspond under mirror symmetry to the ...

Buchak, Peter (Peter M.)
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
We present a combined theoretical and experimental investigation of two systems in which flexible bodies are induced to oscillate by steady flows. The first system we study consists of multiple thin sheets of paper in a ...

Harris, Benjamin (Benjamin London)

In this thesis, the author gives an explicit formula for the Fourier transform of the canonical measure on a nilpotent coadjoint orbit for GL(n, R). If G is a real, reductive algebraic group, and O C g* = Lie(G)* is a ...

Kamburov, Nikola (Nikola Angelov)

We study global monotone solutions of the free boundary problem that arises from minimizing the energy functional I(u) = f lVul2 + V(U), where V(u) is the characteristic function of the interval (1, 1). This functional ...

BoijSöderberg theory is the study of two cones: the first is the cone of graded Betti tables over a polynomial ring, and the second is the cone of cohomology tables of coherent sheaves over projective space. Each cone has ...

Ragnarsson, KaÅ•i, 1977
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
In this thesis we explore the possibility of defining the plocal finite groups of Broto, Levi and Oliver in terms of their classifying spaces. More precisely, we consider the question posed by Haynes Miller, whether an ...

Andrade, Ricardo (Ricardo Joel Abrantes Andrade)
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
This thesis is the first step in an investigation of an interesting class of invariants of Enalgebras which generalize topological Hochschild homology. The main goal of this thesis is to simply give a definition of those ...

Adams, J.; Huang, J.; Vogan, David
(American Mathematical Society, 1988)
We decompose the ring of regular functions on the unique coadjoint orbit for complex E8 of dimension 128, finding that every irreducible
representation appears exactly once. This confirms a conjecture of McGovern. We also ...

We demonstrate that the ratio of group to phase velocity has a simple relationship to the orientation of the electromagnetic field. In nondispersive materials, opposite group and phase velocity corresponds to fields that ...

Gelvin, Matthew J. K. (Matthew Justin Karcher)
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
The study of fusion first arose in the local theory of finite groups. Puig abstracted the fusion data of a finite group to the notion of fusion system, an object that reflects local data in more abstract algebraic settings, ...

For complex reductive Lie algebras g, the classical HarishChandra homomorphism allows to link irreducible finite dimensional representations of g to those of certain subalgebras l. The CasselmanOsborne theorem establishes ...
