• One of the major themes of random matrix theory is that many asymptotic properties of traditionally studied distributions of random matrices are <italic>universal</italic>. We probe the edges of universality by studying ...

The goal of this thesis is to develop one of the threads of what is known in random matrix theory as universality, which essentially is that a large class of matrices generalizing the Gaussian matrices (certain Wigner ...
• (1998)
We consider the inverse problem of determining the electromagnetic material parameters of a body from information obtainable only at the boundary of the body; such information comes in the form of a boundary map which we ...
• Inverse problems arise in various areas of science and engineering including medical imaging, computer vision, geophysics, solid mechanics, astronomy, and so forth. A wide range of these problems involve elliptic operators. ...

Let $\Gamma$ be a Cayley graph of a finitely generated group G. Subgraphs which contain all vertices of $\Gamma ,$ have no cycles, and no finite connected components are called essential spanning forests. The set \${\cal ...

We study Crouzeix's conjecture: for any polynomial p and any square matrix A, the spectral norm of the matrix p(A) is at most double of the supremum norm of the polynomial p on the numerical range of the matrix A.

A new methodology was proposed in Finkelstein and Kastner (2007,2008) to derive finite-difference (FD) schemes in the joint time-space domain to reduce dispersion error. The key idea is that the true dispersion relation ...

This thesis studies bootstrap percolation, a problem in probability, as well as several topics in the application of sums of squares to combinatorial optimization. In the chapter on percolation, we bound the critical ...

We study the macroscopic geometry of first-passage competition on the integer lattice <bold>Z</bold><super>d</super>, with a particular interest in describing the behavior when one species initially occupies the exterior ...
• We define graded group schemes and graded group varieties and develop their theory. We give a generalization of the result that connected graded bialgebras are graded Hopf algebra. Our result is given for a broader class ...
• Let <italic>k</italic> be a field and <italic>B</italic> either a finitely generated free <italic>k</italic>-algebra, or a regular <italic>k</italic>-algebra of global dimension two with at least three generators, generated ...

We study Hopf algebras of finite Gelfand-Kirillov dimension. By analyzing the free pointed Hopf algebra F(t), we show the existence of certain Hopf subalgebras of pointed Hopf domains H whose GK-dimension are finite and ...

Inverse problems arise in different disciplines including exploration geophysics, medical imaging and nondestructive evaluation. In some settings, a single modality displays either high contrast or high resolution but not ...
• (2013-11-14)
We study hybrid imaging techniques that aim to overcome the ill-posedness of the Electric Impedance Tomography using the acousto-electric coupling. For the isotropic case, we consider the problem of reconstructing the ...
• This thesis studies the <italic>hydrodynamic limit</italic> and the <italic>fluctuation limit</italic> for a class of interacting particle systems in domains. These systems are introduced to model the transport of positive ...
• In this work, we study the stability aspect of two inverse boundary-value problems (IBVPs) on an infinite slab with partial data. The uniqueness aspects of these IBVPs were considered and studied by Li and Uhlmann for the ...
• (2013-02-25)
We consider the inverse source problem for the radiative transfer equation, under various assumptions on the scattering and absorption parameters, as well as on the accessible data. In such a setup, we measure the outgoing ...
• (2008)
The inverse problem in radiative transfer is considered. The measurement setup involves controlling incoming radiation at the boundary of a convex domain in Rn and measuring the outgoing radiation in an attempt to ...
• (2013-02-25)
We introduce the notion of isolated genus two curves. There is no known efficient algorithm to explicitly construct isogenies between two genus two curves with large conductor gap. Thus there is no known way of transporting ...

This paper reviews the current state of the Lam-Williams conjectures on a multivariate Markov chain on the symmetric group S_n. We start with Lam's work on random core partitions which led to a remarkable Markov chain on ...
