We engineer a brane picture for the reduction of Seiberg dualities from 4D to 3D, valid also in the presence of orientifold planes. We obtain effective 3D dualities on the circle by T-duality,...

The combinatorial structure of Pachner moves in four dimensions is analyzed in the case of a distinguished move of the type (3,3) and few examples of solutions are reviewed. In particular,...

We show that at second order ensemble averages of observables and directional averages do not commute due to gravitational lensing. In principle this non-commutativity is significant for a...

We construct several classes of worldvolume effective actions for black holes by integrating out spatial sections of the worldvolume geometry of asymptotically flat black branes. This provides a...

We discuss the appearence of left symmetry in a generalized Virasoro algebra. The necessary and sufficient condition for this algebra to be a quasiassociative algebra with the defined...

The symmetric orbifold of K3 is believed to be the CFT dual of string theory on AdS3 x S3 x K3 at the tensionless point. For the case when the K3 is described by the orbifold T4/Z2, we identify...

We describe the bifurcation diagrams of almost toric integrable Hamiltonian systems on a four dimensional symplectic manifold M, not necessarily compact. We prove that, under a weak assumption,...

We consider a general approach for the process of Lagrangian and Hamiltonian reduction by symmetries in chiral gauge models. This approach is used to show the complete integrability of several...

We establish that $E_n$-operads satisfy a rational intrinsic formality theorem for $n\geq 3$. We gain our results in the category of Hopf cooperads in cochain graded dg-modules, which...

It has recently been shown that second-order corrections to the background distance-redshift relation can build up significantly at large redshifts, due to an aggregation of gravitational...

We present a setup that enables to define in a concrete way a renormalization flow for the FK-percolation models from statistical physics (that are closely related to Ising and Potts models). In...

We study random two-dimensional spanning forests in the plane that can be viewed both in the discrete case and in their scaling limit as slight perturbations of an uniformly chosen spanning tree...
