Strictly positive definite kernels on the 2-sphere: beyond radial symmetry [article]

Janin Jäger
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The paper introduces a new characterisation of strictly positive definiteness for kernels on the 2-sphere without assuming the kernel to be radially (isotropic) or axially symmetric.  ...  These generalise the result derived by Chen et al. 2003 for radial kernels to non-radial kernels.  ...  Acknowledgement The work of J. Jäger was supported by the Justus Liebig University's postdoctoral fellowship Just'Us  ...

Pulling Apart 2-spheres in 4-manifolds [article]

Rob Schneiderman, Peter Teichner
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The order 1 intersection invariant is shown to be the complete obstruction to pulling apart 2-spheres in any 4-manifold after taking connected sums with finitely many copies of S^2\times S^2; and the order  ...  The accompanying higher-order intersection invariants provide a geometric generalization of Milnor's link-homotopy invariants, and can give the complete obstruction to pulling apart 2-spheres in certain  ...  Definition 34 For a quadruple of 2-spheres A = A 1 , A 2 , A 3 , A 4 X with X simply connected and A in the radical of λ 0 on π 2 X, define the order 2 intersection relations INT W 2 (A) < Λ 2 (4) to be  ...

How isotropic kernels perform on simple invariants [article]

Jonas Paccolat, Stefano Spigler, Matthieu Wyart
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate how the training curve of isotropic kernel methods depends on the symmetry of the task to be learned, in several settings.  ...  We argue and confirm numerically that for large bandwidth, β = d-1+ξ/3d-3+ξ, where ξ∈ (0,2) is the exponent characterizing the singularity of the kernel at the origin.  ...  This work was partially supported by the grant from the Simons Foundation (#454953 Matthieu Wyart).

Mapping-class groups of 3-manifolds in canonical quantum gravity [article]

Domenico Giulini
2006 arXiv   pre-print
We also attempt to give a flavor of the mathematical ideas involved.  ...  Mapping-class groups of 3-manifolds feature as symmetry groups in canonical quantum gravity.  ...  Note that this is not obvious from the definition of irreducibility, since non-zero elements of π 2 need not be representable as embedded 2-spheres.  ...

Conformal tightness of holographic scaling in black hole thermodynamics

Horacio E Camblong, Carlos R Ordóñez
2013 Classical and quantum gravity  
The near-horizon conformal symmetry of nonextremal black holes is shown to be a mandatory ingredient for the holographic scaling of the scalar-field contribution to the black hole entropy.  ...  Specifically, the conformal SO(2,1) invariance of the radial degree of freedom conspires with the area proportionality of the angular momentum sums to yield a robust holographic outcome.  ...  One of us (C.R.O.) would like to thank the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics for generous support and for providing a wonderful environment during the initial stages of this work.  ...

Random matrix theory and symmetric spaces

M. Caselle, U. Magnea
2004 Physics reports  
In Part I the theory of symmetric spaces is reviewed with particular emphasis on the ideas relevant for appreciating the correspondence with random matrix theories.  ...  In particular the Cartan classification of triplets of symmetric spaces with positive, zero and negative curvature gives rise to a new classification of random matrix ensembles.  ...  The coset SO(3)/SO(2) can be identified with the unit 2-sphere S 2 , a positive curvature space (cf. subsection 2.3).  ...

Spatiotemporal Pattern Extraction by Spectral Analysis of Vector-Valued Observables

Dimitrios Giannakis, Abbas Ourmazd, Joanna Slawinska, Zhizhen Zhao
2019 Journal of nonlinear science  
Moreover, the kernel construction naturally quotients out dynamical symmetries in the data and exhibits an asymptotic commutativity property with the Koopman evolution operator of the system, enabling  ...  Our approach, called vector-valued spectral analysis (VSA), is based on an eigendecomposition of a kernel integral operator acting on a Hilbert space of vector-valued observables of the system, taking  ...  First, Gaussian kernels are strictly positive and bounded below on compact sets.  ...

Constraints on the topology of higher dimensional black holes [article]

Gregory J. Galloway
2011 arXiv   pre-print
Here we review some of the known constraints on horizon topology for higher dimensional black holes.  ...  Then cross sections of the event horizon are topologically 2-spheres.  ...  Hence, Σ must be a 2-sphere. Actually, the torus T 2 (g = 1) arises as a borderline case in the proof.  ...

Whether or not a smooth manifold admits a Riemannian metric whose scalar curvature function is strictly positive is a problem which has been extensively studied by geometers and topologists alike.  ...  We provide a brief survey, aimed at the non-expert, which is intended to provide a gentle introduction to some of the work done on these deep questions. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification. 46A99,  ...  I would like to thank my former colleagues there for their friendship and support over the years.  ...

Counting of states in Higgs theories

2019 Physical Review D  
Since gauge fields fall off exponentially from sources there are no conserved charges or symmetries in the Higgs phase; so the Higgs mechanism is the removal of symmetry from the theory.  ...  global symmetry, as is well known.  ...  A family of conserved charges arises from taking α(x) to be independent of radius, but proportional to a spherical harmonic α(x) ∝ Y lm (ϕ,φ), (73) where (ϕ,φ) are polar angles on the 2-sphere at spatial  ...

In the simplest n=1 case, where the target manifold is the S^2 sphere, we describe the scalar fields by means of stereographic maps.  ...  Two different situations are envisaged: either the vacuum orbit lies on a parallel in the sphere, or one pole and the same parallel form the vacuum orbit.  ...  Acknowledgments After the first version of this work had been completed and sent to the arXives, we learned that vorticial solutions on S 2 like those reported here had been previously found in [17]  ...
