Ergodic properties of compositions of interval exchange maps and rotations
(IOP Publishing, 2012)
We study the ergodic properties of compositions of interval exchange transformations (IETs) and rotations. We show that for any IET T, there is a full measure set of α ∈ [0, 1) so that T Rα is uniquely ergodic, where Rα is ...
The Density of States Measure of the Weakly Coupled Fibonacci Hamiltonian
We consider the density of states measure of the Fibonacci Hamiltonian and show that, for small values of the coupling constant V , this measure is exact-dimensional and the almost everywhere value dV of the local ...
Knot Concordance and Homology Cobordism
(American Mathematical Society, 2013-06)
We consider the question: “If the zero-framed surgeries on two oriented knots in S3 are Z-homology cobordant, preserving the homology class of the positive meridians, are the knots themselves concordant?” We show that this ...
Abelian quotients of subgroups of the mapping class group and higher Prym representations
(London Mathematical Society, 2013-08)
A well-known conjecture asserts that the mapping class group of a surface (possibly with punctures/boundary) does not virtually surject onto Z if the genus of the surface is large. We prove that if this conjecture holds ...
Handle Addition for Doubly-Periodic Scherk Surfaces
(De Gruyter, 2012)
We prove the existence of a family of embedded doubly periodic minimal surfaces of (quotient) genus g with orthogonal ends that generalizes the classical doubly periodic surface of Scherk and the genus-one Scherk surface ...
A Birman exact sequence for Aut(Fn)
The Birman exact sequence describes the effect on the mapping class group of a surface with boundary of gluing discs to the boundary components. We construct an analogous exact sequence for the automorphism group of a free ...
Small generating sets for the Torelli group
(Mathematical Sciences Publisher, 2012)
Proving a conjecture of Dennis Johnson, we show that the Torelli subgroup Ig of the genus g mapping class group has a finite generating set whose size grows cubically with respect to g. Our main tool is a new space called ...
The Rational Cohomology of the Mapping Class Group Vanishes in its Virtual Cohomological Dimension
(Oxford University Press, 2012)
Open Problems and Conjectures Related to the Theory of Mathematical Quasicrystals
This list of problems arose as a collaborative effort among the participants of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft on Mathematical Quasicrystals, which was held at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in October 2015. ...
Anderson localization for quasi-periodic CMV matrices and quantum walks
We consider CMV matrices, both standard and extended, with analytic quasi-periodic Verblunsky coefficients and prove Anderson localization in the regime of positive Lyapunov exponents. This establishes the CMV analog of a ...
