A question on degree 4 binary forms

Suppose that we have a binary form $f(x,y) \in \mathbb{Z}[x,y]$ of degree 4, and that we explicitly have $$\displaystyle f(x,y) = a_0 x^4 + a_1 x^3 y + a_2 x^2 y^2 + a_3 xy^3 + y^4,$$ so that $(0,1)$ ...

Does $S^4$ have a “symplecto-homeomorphic” structure?

The 4-sphere $S^4$ cannot be a symplectic manifold. In particular, it does not admit an atlas whose transition maps are symplectomorphisms $(\mathbb{R}^4,\omega_0)\to(\mathbb{R}^4,\omega_0)$. A ...

Sum or difference of modulus of holomorphic functions [on hold]

Assume that $f$ and $g$ are two holomorphic functions defined in the unit disk. If $$|f|^2-|g|^2\equiv 1$$ or $$|f|^2+|g|^2\equiv 1,$$ then it seems that $f$ and $g$ are constants. How to prove this.
