Growth of the Higgs field for solutions to the Kapustin-Witten equations on R^4

The Kapustin-Witten equations on R^4 are equations for a pair of connection on the product principle SU(2) bundle and 1-form with values in the product Lie algebra bundle. The 1-form is the Higgs field. A dichotomy is proved to the effect that either the averaged norm of the Higgs field on large radius spheres grows faster than a power of the radius, or its 1-form components everywhere pairwise commute.

Ricci soliton contact metric manifolds with certain nullity conditions have recently been studied by Ghosh and Sharma. Whereas the gradient case is well-understood, they provided a list of candidates for the nongradient case.These candidates can be realized as Lie groups, but one only knows the structures of the underlying Lie algebras, which are hard to be analyzed apart from the three-dimensional case.

This paper argues that a class of Riemannian metrics, called warped metrics, plays a fundamental role in statistical problems involving location-scale models. The paper reports three new results : i) the Rao-Fisher metric of any location-scale model is a warped metric, provided that this model satisfies a natural invariance condition, ii) the analytic expression of the sectional curvature of this metric, iii) the exact analytic solution of the geodesic equation of this metric. The paper applies these new results to several examples of interest, where it shows that warped metrics turn location-scale models into complete Riemannian manifolds of negative sectional curvature.

In this paper we show rigidity results for super-solutions to fully nonlinear elliptic conformally invariant equations on subdomains of the standard $n$-sphere $\mathbb S^n$ under suitable conditions along the boundary. This proves rigidity for compact connected locally conformally flat manifolds $(M,g)$ with boundary such that the eigenvalues of the Schouten tensor satisfy a fully nonlinear elliptic inequality and whose boundary is isometric to a geodesic sphere $\partial D(r)$, where $D(r)$ denotes a geodesic ball of radius $r\in (0,\pi/2]$ in $\mathbb S^n$, and totally umbilical with mean curvature bounded bellow by the mean curvature of this geodesic sphere. Under the above conditions, $(M,g)$ must be isometric to the closed geodesic ball $\overline{D(r)}$. Read More


In this paper, we prove that for any closed 4-dimensional Riemannian manifold $M$ with trivial first homology group, if the Ricci curvature $|Ric|\leq3$, the diameter $diam(M)\leq D$ and the volume $vol(M)>v>0$, then the first homological filling function of $M$ satisfies $HF_1(l)\leq f_1(v,D)\cdot l+f_2(v,D)$, where $f_1$ and $f_2$ are some functions that only depend on $v$ and $D$. As a corollary, the area of a smallest singular minimal surface on $M$ is bounded by $120f_1(v,D)\cdot D+60f_2(v,D)$. Read More

We provide classification results for and examples of half conformally flat generalized quasi Einstein manifolds of signature $(2,2)$. This analysis leads to a natural equation in affine geometry called the affine quasi-Einstein equation that we explore in further detail. Read More


We study two-dimensional Finsler metrics of constant flag curvature and show that such Finsler metrics that admit a Killing field can be written in a normal form that depends on two arbitrary functions of one variable. Furthermore, we find an approach to calculate these functions for spherically symmetric Finsler surfaces of constant flag curvature. In particular, we obtain the normal form of the Funk metric on the unit disk D^2. Read More


We show vanishing theorems of $L^2$-cohomology groups of Kodaira-Nakano type on complete Hessian manifolds. We obtain further vanishing theorems of $L^2$-cohomology groups $L^2H^{p,q}(\Omega)$ on a regular convex cone $\Omega$ with the Cheng-Yau metric for $p>q$. Read More

Motivated by questions in real enumerative geometry we investigate the problem of the number of flats simultaneously tangent to several convex hypersurfaces in real projective space from a probabilistic point of view. More precisely, we say that smooth convex hypersurfaces $X_1, \ldots, X_{d_{k,n}}\subset \mathbb{R}\textrm{P}^n$, where $d_{k,n}=(k+1)(n-k)$, are in random position if each one of them is randomly translated by elements $g_1, \ldots, g_{{d_{k,n}}}$ sampled independently from the Orthogonal group with the uniform distribution; we denote by $\tau_k(X_1, \ldots, X_{d_{k,n}})$ the average number of $k$-dimensional projective subspaces (flats) which are simultaneously tangent to all the hypersurfaces. We prove that $$ \tau_k(X_1, \ldots, X_{d_{k,n}})={\delta}_{k,n} \cdot \prod_{i=1}^{d_{k,n}}\frac{|\Omega_k(X_i)|}{|\textrm{Sch}(k,n)|},$$ where ${\delta}_{k,n}$ is the expected degree (the average number of $k$-flats incident to $d_{k,n}$ many random $(n-k-1)$-flats), $|\textrm{Sch}(k,n)|$ is the volume of the Special Schubert variety of $k$-flats meeting a $(n-k-1)$-flat and $|\Omega_k(X)|$ is the volume of the manifold of all $k$-flats tangent to $X$.
