Global contact and quasiconformal mappings of Carnot groups

We show that globally defined quasiconformal mappings of rigid Carnot groups are affine, but that globally defined contact mappings of rigid Carnot groups need not be quasiconformal, and a fortiori not affine.

A family of homothets of an o-symmetric convex body K in d-dimensional Euclidean space is called a Minkowski arrangement if no homothet contains the center of any other homothet in its interior. We show that any pairwise intersecting Minkowski arrangement of a d-dimensional convex body has at most $2\cdot 3^d$ members. This improves a result of Polyanskii (arXiv:1610. Read More


In this paper, we characterize a novel separation property for IFS-attractors on complete metric spaces. Such a separation property is weaker than the strong open set condition (SOSC) and becomes necessary to reach the equality between the similarity and the Hausdorff dimensions of strict self-similar sets. We also investigate the size of the overlaps from the viewpoint of that separation property. Read More


The main result: for every $m\in\mathbb{N}$ and $\omega>0$ there exists an isometric embedding $F:[0,1]\to L_1[0,1]$ which is nowhere differentiable, but for each $t\in [0,1]$ the image $F_t$ is an $m$-times continuously differentiable function with absolute values of all of its $m$ derivatives bounded from above by $\omega$.

Slicing a Voronoi tessellation in $\mathbb{R}^n$ with a $k$-plane gives a $k$-dimensional weighted Voronoi tessellation, also known as power diagram or Laguerre tessellation. Mapping every simplex of the dual weighted Delaunay mosaic to the radius of the smallest empty circumscribed sphere whose center lies in the $k$-plane gives a generalized discrete Morse function. Assuming the Voronoi tessellation is generated by a Poisson point process in $\mathbb{R}^n$, we study the expected number of simplices in the $k$-dimensional weighted Delaunay mosaic as well as the expected number of intervals of the Morse function, both as functions of a radius threshold.

We mainly consider two metrics: a Gromov hyperbolic metric and a scale invariant Cassinian metric. We compare these two metrics and obtain their relationship with certain well-known hyperbolic-type metrics, leading to several inclusion relations between the associated metric balls. Read More


We provide an algebraic description of the Teichm\"uller space and moduli space of flat metrics on a closed manifold or orbifold and study its boundary, which consists of (isometry classes of) flat orbifolds to which the original object may collapse. It is also shown that every closed flat orbifold can be obtained by collapsing closed flat manifolds, and the collapsed limits of closed flat 3-manifolds are classified. Read More


Kleiner's theorem states that for a finitely generated group $\mathbb{G}$, polynomial growth implies that the space of harmonic functions with polynomial growth of degree at most $k$ is finite dimensional. We show a generalization to the class of measures with exponential tail. This has implications to the structure of the space of polynomially growing harmonic functions. Read More


Warped cones are metric spaces introduced by John Roe from discrete group actions on compact metric spaces to produce interesting examples in coarse geometry. We show that a certain class of warped cones $\mathcal{O}_\Gamma (M)$ admit a fibred coarse embedding into a $L_p$-space ($1\leq p<\infty$) if and only if the discrete group $\Gamma$ admits a proper affine isometric action on a $L_p$-space. This actually holds for any class of Banach spaces stable under taking Lebesgue-Bochner $L_p$-spaces and ultraproducts, e. Read More


We classify the radially symmetric connections in vector bundles over round spheres by proving that they are all parallel. Read More


Giving a joint generalization of a result of Brazitikos, Chasapis and Hioni and results of Giannopoulos and Milman, we prove that roughly $\left\lceil \frac{d}{(1-\vartheta)^d}\ln\frac{1}{(1-\vartheta)^d} \right\rceil$ points chosen uniformly and independently from a centered convex body $K$ in ${\mathbb R}^d$ yield a polytope $P$ for which $\vartheta K\subseteq P\subseteq K$ holds with large probability. The proof is simple, and relies on a combinatorial tool, the $\varepsilon$-net theorem. Read More
