We study the scaling limit and prove the law of large numbers for weakly pinned Gaussian random fields under the critical situation that two possible candidates of the limits exist at the level...

Recent developments in string theory have revealed a surprising connection between spectral theory and local mirror symmetry: it has been found that the quantization of mirror curves to toric...

We consider a supersymmetric Wilson loop operator for 4d N=4 super Yang-Mills theory which is the natural object dual to the AdS_5 x S^5 superstring in the AdS/CFT correspondence. It generalizes...

We describe combinatorial Hopf (co-)operadic models for the Swiss Cheese operads built from Feynman diagrams. This extends previous work of Kontsevich and Lambrechts-Voli\'c for the little disks...

It is well known that (in suitable codimension) the spaces of long knots in Rn modulo immersions are double loop spaces. Hence the homology carries a natural Gerstenhaber structure,...

Recent work has shown that non-local modifications of gravity involving terms such as m2R□−2R (and no cosmological constant) provide a phenomenologically viable alternative...

We consider the stationary incompressible Navier-Stokes equation in the half-plane with inhomogeneous boundary condition. We prove existence of strong solutions for boundary data close to any...

We develop symmetry reduction for material stochastic Lagrangian systems with advected quantities whose configuration space is a Lie group, obtaining deterministic constrained variational...

We equip the categorified quantum group attached to a KLR algebra and an arbitrary choice of scalars with duality functor which is cyclic, that is, such that f=f^** for all 2-morphisms f. This...

Torically maximal curves (known also as simple Harnack curves) are real algebraic curves in the projective plane such that their logarithmic Gau{\ss} map is totally real. In this paper we show...

This review describes the discovery of the cosmic microwave background radiation in 1965 and its impact on cosmology in the 50 years that followed. This discovery has established the Big Bang...

It has recently been argued that the symmetric orbifold theory of T4 is dual to string theory on AdS3 x S3 x T4 at the tensionless point. At this point in moduli space, the theory possesses a...
