2021 arXiv   pre-print
We identify two conditions on the transformation. One is a group representation condition that is necessary for path integration.  ...  In this paper, we conduct theoretical analysis of a general representation model of path integration by grid cells, where the 2D self-position is encoded as a higher dimensional vector, and the 2D self-motion  ...  We thank Yaxuan Zhu from UCLA Department of Statistics for his help with experiments on egocentric vision.

Mesoscale Theory of Grains and Cells: Crystal Plasticity and Coarsening

Surachate Limkumnerd, James P. Sethna
2006 Physical Review Letters  
While both the microscopic laws of dislocation motion and the macroscopic laws of coarsening and plastic deformation are well studied, we hitherto have had no simple, continuum explanation for the evolution  ...  At low temperatures under shear the dislocations (which allow only glide) form into cell structures.  ...  We seek to count the number of times the isotropic representations of the rotation group occurs within the products.  ...
