The 1-norm is a good convex regularization for the recovery of sparse vectors from under-determined linear measurements. No other convex regularization seems to surpass its sparse recovery performance. How can this be explained? To answer this question, we define several notions of " best (...)

We introduce a condition on Garside groups that we call Dehornoy structure. An iteration of such a structure leads to a left order on the group. We show conditions for a Garside group to admit a Dehornoy structure, and we apply these criteria to prove that the Artin groups of type A and I 2 (...)

In this paper we conjecture that the Links-Gould invariant of links, that we know is a generalization of the Alexander-Conway polynomial, shares some of its classical features. In particular it seems to give a lower bound for the genus of links and to provide a criterion for fiberedness of (...)

We show that a del Pezzo fibration π : V → W of degre d contains a vertical open cylinder, that is, an open subset whose intersection with the generic fiber of π is isomorphic to Z × A 1 K for some quasi-projective variety Z defined over the function field K of W , if and only if d ≥ 5 and π : V → (...)

We construct solutions to the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation (KPI) in terms of Fredholm determinants. We deduce solutions written as a quotient of wronskians of order 2N. These solutions called solutions of order N depend on 2N − 1 parameters. When one of these parameters tends to zero, we (...)

Oleg Viro studied in arXiv:math/0204290 two interpretations of the (multivariable) Alexander polynomial as a quantum link invariant: either by considering the quasi triangular Hopf algebra associated to $U_q sl(2)$ at fourth roots of unity, or by considering the super Hopf algebra $U_q (...)
