Mathematical Models of Marine Protected Areas

Marine protected areas (MPAs) have been promoted as conservation and fishery management tools, and at present, there are over 1300 MPAs in the world. Most researchers suggest that in the long term MPAs provide multiple benefits, including: reduced li   more››

An in-silico model of early tumor development dynamics - implications for treatment design

Cancer development may be considered an evolutionary process whereby genetically unstable cell clones compete under selective influences of the local environment and succeed in accordance with the relative fitnesses of their expressed phenotypes. The   more››

Banach algebras of continuous functions and measures, and their second duals

For every Banach algebra A, there are two products on the second dual space A'' that make A'' into a Banach algebra; they may or may not coincide. A lot of information about the original algebra A comes easily by looking at these second duals. We   more››

Multi-Banach spaces and Multi-Banach Algebras

The very extensive theories of Banach spaces and Banach algebras, including algebras of operators on Banach spaces, are the foundation stones of much modern analysis. For certain reasons M. Polyakov and I were led to introduce a more   more››

Sums of congruent convex bodies

The Minkowski linear combination is a fundamental operation for convex bodies. Further basic structures on the space of convex bodies are the topology induced by the Hausdorff metric, and the operation of the group of rigid motions. Suppose we hav   more››

Asymptotic shapes of random polytopes

We consider random polytopes, generated as intersections of closed halfspaces (containing 0) bounded by the hyperplanes of a Poisson process of hyperplanes (satisfying only some homogeneity property under dilatations). The central question (a very   more››

Random projections of regular polytopes and neighborliness

If an N-dimensional regular crosspolytope is projected to a uniform random d-dimensional subspace and N is large, then the projection has strong neighborliness properties, with high probability. Strong results in this direction were recently obtai   more››
