There are theories of coverings of $C^*$-algebras which can be included into a following list: coverings of commutative $C^*$-algebras, coverings of $C^*$-algebras of groupoids and foliations, coverings of noncommutative tori, the double covering of the quantum group $SO_q(3)$. This work is devoted to a single general theory which includes all theo...

We give a classification of second-order polynomial solutions for the homogeneous k-Hessian equation σk[u] = 0. There are only two classes of polynomial solutions: One is convex polynomial; another one must not be (k + 1)-convex, and in the second case, the k-Hessian equations are uniformly elliptic with respect to that solution. Base on this class...

We explore the difference Langlands correspondence using the four dimensional $ \mathcal{N} $ = 2 super-QCD. Surface defects and surface observables play the crucial role. As an application, we give the first construction of the full set of quantum integrals, i.e. commuting differential operators, such that the partition function of the so-called r...

We study two types of surface observables $-$ the $\mathbf{Q}$-observables and the $\mathbf{H}$-observables $-$ of the 4d $\mathcal{N}=2$$A_1$-quiver $U(N)$ gauge theory obtained by coupling a 2d $\mathcal{N}=(2,2)$ gauged linear sigma model. We demonstrate that the transition between the two surface defects manifests as a Fourier transformation be...

The Kepler problem is the special case $\alpha = 1$ of the power law problem: to solve Newton's equations for a central force whose potential is of the form $-\mu/r^{\alpha}$ where $\mu$ is a coupling constant. Associated to such a problem is a two-dimensional cone with cone angle $2 \pi c$ with $c = 1 - \frac{\alpha}{2}$. We construct a transforma...

We characterize primary operations in differential cohomology via stacks, and illustrate by differentially refining Steenrod squares and Steenrod powers explicitly. This requires a delicate interplay between integral, rational, and mod p cohomology, as well as cohomology with U(1) coefficients and differential forms. Along the way we develop comput...

Orbifold singularities of M-theory constitute the building blocks of a broad class of supersymmetric quantum field theories (SQFTs). In this paper we show how the local data of these geometries determines global data on the resulting higher symmetries of these systems. In particular, via a process of cutting and gluing, we show how local orbifold s...

We prove nonemptyness of domains of proper discontinuity of Anosov groups of affine Lorentzian transformations.

We produce new examples, both explicit and analytical, of bi-axisymmetric stationary vacuum black holes in 5 dimensions. A novel feature of these solutions is that they are asymptotically locally Euclidean in which spatial cross-sections at infinity have lens space $L(p,q)$ topology, or asymptotically Kaluza-Klein so that spatial cross-sections at ...

In this note we study exceptional algebroids, focusing on their relation to type IIB superstring theory. We show that a IIB-exact exceptional algebroid (corresponding to the group urn:x-wiley:00158208:media:prop202100104:prop202100104-math-0001, for urn:x-wiley:00158208:media:prop202100104:prop202100104-math-0002) locally has a standard form given ...
