In this article, we study the p-ordinary Iwasawa theory of the (conjectural) Rubinâ€“Stark elements defined over abelian extensions of a CM field F and develop a rank-g Eulerâ€“Kolyvagin system machinery (where Graphic), refining and generalizing...

In this paper we set up a general Kolyvagin system machinery for Euler systems of rank r (in the sense of Perrin- Riou) associated to a large class of Galois representations, building on our previous work on Kolyvagin systems of Rubin-Stark units...
In this paper, we give several results on area minimizing surfaces in strictly mean convex 3-manifolds. First, we study the genus of absolutely area minimizing surfaces in a compact, orientable, strictly mean convex 3-manifold M bounded by a simple...

We introduce a random walk in random environment associated to an underlying directed polymer model in 1 + 1 dimensions. This walk is the positive temperature counterpart of the competition interface of percolation and arises as the limit of...
We give two variational formulas (qVar1) and (qVar2) for the quenched free energy of a random walk in random potential (RWRP) when (i) the underlying walk is directed or undirected, (ii) the environment is stationary and ergodic, and (iii) the...
Let A be a commutative Banach algebra with a BAI (=bounded approximate identity). We equip A** with the (first) Arens multiplication. To each idempotent element u of A** we associate the closed ideal I-u = {a is an element of A : au = 0} in A. In...
We investigate the relationship between the levels of industry collaboration and entrepreneurial activities at universities and the employment choices of their science and engineering doctoral students. Using data from 176 U.S. universities over...

In this paper we study Kolyvagin Systems, as defined by Mazur and Rubin, over the cyclotomic Zp-tower for a Gal(Q=Q) representation T. We prove, under certain hypotheses, that the module of -adic Kolyvagin Systems for the cyclotomic deformation...
We consider the 2-norm distance tau(r)(A, B) from a linear time-invariant dynamical system (A, B) of order n to the nearest system (A + Delta A(*), B + Delta B-*) whose reachable subspace is of dimension r < n. We first present a characterization...
It is well known that non-renegotiable contracts with third parties may have an effect on the outcome of a strategic interaction and thus serve as a commitment device. We address this issue when contracts are renegotiable. More precisely, we...
This work concerns the global minimization of a prescribed eigenvalue or a weighted sum of prescribed eigenvalues of a Hermitian matrix-valued function depending on its parameters analytically in a box. We describe how the analytical properties of...
A strongly damped wave equation including the displacement depending nonlinear damping term and nonlinear interaction function is considered. The main aim of the note is to show that under the standard dissipativity restrictions on the...

In this paper, we construct (many) Kolyvagin systems out of Stickelberger elements utilizing ideas borrowed from our previous work on Kolyvagin systems of Rubin-Stark elements. The applications of our approach are twofold. First, assuming Brumerâ€™s...
This work considers eigenvalue problems that are nonlinear in the eigenvalue parameter. Given such a nonlinear eigenvalue problem T, we are concerned with finding the minimal backward error such that T has a set of prescribed eigenvalues with...
