Does the concept of connective constant make sense for any tiling of the plane?

First let me define what is the "connective constant" of a two dimensional lattice. Let $c_{n}$ denote the number of $n$ step self-avoiding walks starting from a fixed origin point in the lattice. ...

Correlation functions of complex operators

One defines the "scaling dimension" (as opposed to "engineering dimension") of an operator $\cal{O}$ as $[\cal{O}]$ such that if $\cal{O}(t^{-1}x) = t^{[\cal{O}]}\cal{O}(x)$ then the Lagrangian in ...

Continuous extension of Riemann maps and the Caratheodory-Torhorst Theorem

If $G\subsetneq\mathbb{C}$ is a simply-connected plane domain, then by the Riemann mapping theorem there is a conformal isomorphism $\newcommand{\D}{\mathbb{D}}\varphi:\D\to G$, where $\D$ is the unit ...

The Tangent Bundle of the Space of CR Structures on S^(2n+1)

Let $M$ be a smooth compact $n$-manifold without boundary, $g$ some choice of Riemannian metric on $M$, and $\omega_g$ the volume form gotten from $g$. Say you're interested in finding extrema for ...

What are Euler density and Weyl invariants?

I would like to know as to what is the definition and significance of what are called "Euler density" and "Weyl invariants" (of weight $-d$ on a $d-$manifold) Do many (which?) of them vanish when ...

Collection of charged line segments in 2D - where do electric field lines meet it?

Suppose we have a collection of charged line segments in 2D. I'd like to be able to do two things : from an arbitrary point in the plane, follow the electric field and find where it meets the ...

Global conformally flat coordinates

I know that for a 2D manifold there can allways be found a local chart such that the metric is conformally flat. Is it possible globally? If the manifold is simply connected, like a disk, does it make ...

Conformal Finsler metrics

Given a Finsler metric $F$ on a compact boudaryless manifold $M$ and $\sigma : M \longrightarrow \mathrm{R}$ a $C^2$ strictly positive function, define a new Finsler metric by $\tilde{F}=\sigma F.$ ...

Invertibility of Paneitz operator on a compact manifold without boundary

Let $(M,g)$ be a Riemannian manifold of any even dimension that we assume compact and without boundary and $P_g$ the Paneitz operator in the metric $g$. The question is the following: how to define a ...

Errata in “Conformal Mapping: Method and Applications” from Schinzinger

hi, i'm studying the book "Conformal Mapping: Method and Applications" from Schinzinger and more precisely the chapter 6 concerning non-planar field. In section 6.1.3 the author proposes to solve a ...
